Hey TW!

AdLiban hour ago

Hey Ad, how did your daughter’s team do did they take it all??

twilson117

an hour ago

Unfortunately not. She pitched very well but she wasn’t batting and the batters went ice cold. They only had to win one of two to win Regionals. only scored 1 run in each game.

AdLiban hour ago

Lost both.

AdLiban hour ago

How are things your way/

AdLiban hour ago

Sorry to hear that but the real question is did they have fun and enjoy the moment?

twilson117

an hour ago

Well…they didn’t enjoy that day, the odds were in their favor, undefeated, they expected to win so they were pretty dejected.

AdLiban hour ago

Hey CL!

Hey CL

twilson117

Hey, good friends. How are you?

choicelady

an hour ago

Doing so well I’m flying my flag right side up.

AdLiban hour ago

Oh, Ad – I am so sorry to learn D’s team did not prevail.

choicelady

an hour ago

We nasty liberals are indeed flying ALL flags right side up.

choicelady

an hour ago

I received a text from PPO he’s going to be in Framingham this July so I’m hoping we can get together, my Granddaugther is here at the same time I will find a work around so we can get together.

twilson117

an hour ago

Hey TW – how are you?

choicelady

an hour ago

Ad, I understand about the dejection, but their young and they will get over it.

twilson117

an hour ago

CL – It was a tough day, they had their eyes on going to the Nationals but the batters were too anxious and couldn’t settle down. Wish my daughter was batting, she often hits in clutch situations. As a pitcher, she’s used to performing under pressure.

AdLiban hour ago

tw – that is boffo if you and your granddaughter and PPO can all get together.

choicelady

an hour ago

Ad – I wish she’d been a batter. She is indeed great under pressure. I’m sorry. So near – and yet so far.

choicelady

an hour ago

TW – That sounds great! CL and I will see PPO in July in SFO.

AdLiban hour ago

CL I think she would get a kick out of PPO.

twilson117

an hour ago

Yep, the team knows they were the ones who gave away the title, they beat themselves. Well, they did win the Conference championships and as I bragged before, my daughter pitched that win.

AdLiban hour ago

TW – he is fun, isn’t he? That lovely Irish humor.

choicelady

an hour ago

Ad then PPO must be coming from CA to MA that would see the logical way coming from down under right?

twilson117

an hour ago

And I think PPO will get a kick out of your granddaughter, TW.

AdLiban hour ago

Ad – she IS very, very cool is your daughter…

choicelady

an hour ago

CL is one helleva a great person.

twilson117

an hour ago

TW – Yep, PPO is making an eastbound journey with stops along the way.

AdLiban hour ago

TW – yes. I think he might have a Buffalo NY stop between. There is family there. Then on to you.

choicelady

an hour ago

SF to Buffalo to Boston to Dublin is his usual route.

choicelady

an hour ago

I’m envious you get to see him IN Mass and that he gets to see you when I could not. NEXT YEAR!!!

choicelady

an hour ago

So…after Alito exposes himself as a MAGA, shouldn’t Dems be making reforming the SCOTUS (and adding 4 more to drown out the corrupt ones) a campaign promise that’s repeated loud between now and Nov?

AdLiban hour ago

Ad It will depend on the schedule her auntie my daughter has planned for her. I get very little say in the arrangements. My daughter flies out to get her and take her back and I get to go broke while she is hear, some how that’ suppose to be a good arrangement.

twilson117

an hour ago

As – I think court reform is essential, but FIRST we have to elect majority Dems.

choicelady

an hour ago

TW – What else are grandparents for than to spoil their grandkids…then have to eat instant ramen for a month.

AdLiban hour ago

CL he has a brother in Milford MA who is an retired priest.

twilson117

an hour ago

TW – she plans, you spend, she enjoys, you go broke. Yup. That’s the way of life.

choicelady

an hour ago

CL yep and life is all good.

twilson117

an hour ago

TW – Yes, it is.

choicelady

an hour ago

CL – Agreed but part of the campaign for unified control in DC could include campaign promises like reinstating a woman’s right to choose, voting rights protection, and stopping the out of control and corrupt SCOTUS.

AdLiban hour ago

TW – I had forgotten Milford was the place.

choicelady

an hour ago

Ad yes that is truly what GP’s are for.

twilson117

an hour ago

Ad – I think that IS the Dem platform.’

choicelady

an hour ago

All – I am reminding people of Abe Fortas, the SCOTUS judge who got sent to oblivion due to financial crimes. We did it before. We can do it again for Thomas and Alito.

choicelady

an hour ago

I think the trick is to quietly put your nest egg in a Swiss bank account then by the time your kids have their kids, you shrug and say, “We can play board games at least.”

AdLiban hour ago

Ad –

choicelady

an hour ago

CL – Glad you agree. Trump and the Repubs have no platforms, just fear mongering and threats of retribution, Dems and Biden can really set themselves apart by having a national platform of what they promise to do if given unitary power.

AdLiban hour ago

Ad

twilson117

an hour ago

Alito is a coward he blamed his wife for the upside down flag, we all know he did it.

twilson117

an hour ago

Ad – well, it’s not unitary power so much as simple advantage. Unitary power is Trump as Dictator. Or Dick tator however we interpret it. We must need a clear majority.

choicelady

an hour ago

Alito is the WORST justice i’ve ever read. He writes such BS, and he needs to go.

choicelady

an hour ago

CL – I don’t know, I think those days of both parties having a modicum of shared principles is over. Look at the slavish weasels in Congress including Johnson scuttling down to NY to kiss Trump’s…bottom…and attack the rule of law as he wants them to. And look at MTG’s high-school-mean-girl insulting last night. The GOP is no longer a party, it’s a cult of frightened and disturbed cowards.

AdLiban hour ago

Ad – I want the Congressional folks in NYC to be impeached on violating the separation of powers AND interfering in a STATE trial without any federal issues. That is the epitome of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’.

choicelady

an hour ago

Ad clow show all the way with matching outfits all they needed was the big shows and clown shoes.

twilson117

an hour ago

TW – they looked like a white guy amateur a cappella Barbershop quartet.

choicelady

an hour ago

Ad as long as states keep electing fools like MTG and Grabby Bobert it’s going to get worse

twilson117

an hour ago

TW – Absolutely! Alito is a bald faced (and headed) liar. He leaked the Dobbs decision to successfully manipulate the rest of the court and lies about it. He’s lying about this too. I think it was Alito himself who turned the flag upside-down to crow about his support for sedition against his Dem neighbors. But to lie and be an utter coward, blaming his wife for what I bet he did and coming up with such a BS story, he is so exposed for the little, petty, hateful, and corrupt garbage he is.

AdLiban hour ago

CL well there were clearly singing the right tune for Frump.

twilson117

an hour ago

OK – have to say my vision still sucks, and I will hang in as long as I can focus. Not sure why it’s deteriorating again, but it is difficult to read and reply. See the doc next week. Sigh.

choicelady

an hour ago

CL – No, unitary power means Dems control Congress and the WH. A unitary president however is indeed a dictator as Trump wants to be.

AdLiban hour ago

Ad we know Trump wants to be a dictator he has said it himself.

twilson117

an hour ago

Ad – what REALLY bothers me about the Alito flag is that an upside down flag is a naval distress sign. He has corrupted it. Now will anyone pay attention to one?

choicelady

an hour ago

Ad – OK. I accept your definition of ‘unitary’.

choicelady

an hour ago

CL for someone who is suppose to be relatively smart has no understanding that doing that is only supposed be in time of real distress what an ass.

twilson117

an hour ago

CL – How is it not obstruction of justice when a klan of Repub Congresspeople travel to a trial that’s underway and declare it to be a fraud and attack the people Trump can’t due to the gag order that is trying to protect a fair hearing. They are all traitors, happily displaying it because they think if Trump wins, our democracy will be overthrown and they will benefit as part of the dictatorship. How is that not traitorous?

AdLib44 minutes ago

TW – all our standard “understanding” of symbols has died under MAGA.

choicelady

43 minutes ago

TW – The matching outfits made them look so ridiculous, how desperately they bow to Trump to be VP or be among those he picks to be oligarchs. It’s truly disgusting.

AdLib42 minutes ago

Ad – it IS a violation of the Constitution for Congress to meddle in an ongoing trial ESPECIALLY when it’s local, not federal. They need to be impeached themselves for it.

choicelady

42 minutes ago

Ad – yesterday they were in different colored suits and ties. We mocked them back to the dressing room.
