.@funcrusherplus replies with swear words. Like the other thing I replied to today, it hoist itself on its own petard.
.@michaelreale7 replies "Thanks for the free press". Did you check my follower count? You won't get any free press here but elsewhere I will agitate against your company.
.@justjanedoee tweets "We have transients throwing boulders at passing cars on Venice Blvd" then replies to the dip who replied to me "Civil debates are welcomed". OK. As a first step & knowing you aren't them - characterize how those like John & Ken discuss the homeless.
.@jibannjibartik replies "if you want to have a discussion about what might actually help, maybe dont be a d-bag". Sorry to harsh your buzz, but you ran away by your own admission.
.@jenvanlaar @CJayMahoney: Twitter is at or near common carrier status: they sell themselves as a way for govt officials to do official business. They then decide who can communicate with those leaders & who gets censored. Imagine if Comcast only delivered some emails to the FCC.
As with the other play, a good infield catch was followed by a fielding error. #WCWS
Indeed: yet another good diving infield catch. #Arizona #WCWS
.@jenvanlaar @CJayMahoney: Twitter has a lot of rules & they're open-ended by design. The Krassensteins probably got banned to show that TWTR doesn't just ban high-profile cons. If buying followers upranked their replies, that's a problem w/ TWTR's incredibly flawed algorithms.
.@inappros replies "it was a joke [swear words]". You & @AmericanHomocon obviously aren't joking: you're keen on censoring those you can't show wrong. P.S. You also got hoist on your own petard. I won't explain the irony to you.
.@caborose: I'm not "bashing" you since I'd never seen you before I replied to you. I am bashing those like @nrothschild3 who are worthless against Trump & who suffer from extreme Dunning-Kruger. Urge Neal to finally make anti-Trump arguments that resonate *with MAGA*.
.@warren__terra @CharlesPPierce: there are lots of Trump proxies around, so CPP shouldn't have any trouble talking to one. If he asks tough questions & really presses for answers he'll send a message directly to Trump. That's how he can finally undercut Trump. Will he or not?
.@warren__terra replies w/ ad homs; @CharlesPPierce is bewildered by its reply. Here's what I want CPP to do: challenge a Trump proxy on what happens to Trump "wall" when Trump's out of office. The proxy will claim it'll stay in place. Ask who'll fund the upkeep.
.@cornholio74 replies with a link to the Comet Ping Pong owner implying they have a basement. While my wider point stands, I've asked a couple of people to explain. How about you following up?
.@driven_by_data: in 2016 you blogged "Dissecting the #PizzaGate Conspiracy Theories" in which you scoffed at (and thus didn't debunk) said theories. You claim Comet Ping Pong doesn't have a basement, but in a 2015 interview the owner implied it does. Did you lie?
.@ruleonwriting: in 2015 you blogged "James Alefantis: From Scratch" in which he implies Comet Ping Pong has a basement. So, does it or not?
In a 2015 interview, James Alefantis (owner of Comet Ping Pong of #Pizzagate fame) said: "we harvest 10 tons of tomatoes/year. Can them all, store them in the basement..." Others have claimed there's no basement. https://www.metroweekly.com/2015/04/from-scratch-james-alefantis/
.@KenSimonn replies: "Who the [heck] cares what Phil McCausland thinks or does??? Who the [heck] is he??? I don’t recall him getting elected to anything" @PhilMcCausland is a very minor cog in the MSM propaganda machine. Showing those like him wrong has many benefits to the USA.

.@ScottAnthonyUSA replies "Censorship on ANY topic, is wrong" .@CoreysDigs replies "I oppose ALL censorship & think most people do as well". The point of my initial tweet is that cons tend to only oppose censorship of other cons (see Parscale, Trump, etc.) That doesn't work.

Good diving infield catch from Gibson. #WCWS
.@LilDramaShow: P.S., @jeanmobilia blocked me over that one tweet. That's the same thing Trump fans do: they know they can't present a valid counter-argument so they have a little tantrum & block someone who showed them wrong. https://24ahead.com/u/jeanmobilia
In a first for the #WCWS, a good catch & a good throw prevented a run. Normally they drop it and the whole opposing team scores.

.@caseyatbat3: @SenGillibrand *hurts* the issue of USA healthcare & related issues by demagoguing. She turns a systemic issue - the complete victory of NeoLiberal/"greed is good" policies over the commonweal - into a racial *and* gender issue & thus marginalizing legit concerns.
Dolt. MT @SenGillibrand When three in five pregnancy-related deaths could be prevented, but aren't, you have to ask: Are we a country that cares about women? These deaths—disproportionately women of color—are unacceptable in 2019. We have to end our maternal mortality crisis.

.@caitlinmokane: you blog "Russian trolls fueled anti-vaccination debate in U.S. by spreading misinformation on Twitter, study finds". Is the agenda of such "studies" to spur debate or to quash it? Does Putin want more real debate in the USA or does he want more censorship?
.@flashdawg68: what you can do is help shame those like @StevenTDennis into doing real reporting. Instead of playing cutesy emoji games, he should be really pressing Trump supporters on what happens to Trump's plans when he's out of office. That's what real reporters do.
Here's something very, very curious: I have two #Target "Goodfellow" shirts in the same putative size (hint: it's more than 2 letters). I say "putative" because one fits OK, the other is too tight. This is very, very odd and I'll be writing to Trump about it. #MAGA #resist

.@crampell blog DHS to send agents to MX/GT border; @ffiltzer replies "I hope they all get Montezuma’s revenge" Rampell didn't bat an eye as Don Lemon named all the Big Biz outfits that oppose MX tariffs. She didn't say "Trump's a dolt but U.S. Chamber are crooks" as libs would.

.@accidentalflyer: or just run like a smart, sane, patriotic, genuine Trump. Show those like @Neil_Irwin who push anti-American NeoLiberal policies (loose borders/free trade/globalism, i.e., the Koch agenda) wrong. Destroy their careers before they do any more damage to the USA.

.@babs_klein: in another tweet, @johnastoehr pushes "open borders". Vox asked Bernie Sanders if he supported open borders & he replied: "No, that's a Koch brothers proposal". What about you? Are you a big Koch fan like John & @monthly? Or, are you a real liberal?
IOW, go full-on NeoLiberal (free trade, loose borders, globalism). Big Biz - esp Koch - would spend millions on them! MT @johnastoehr [a @monthly blogger] Lots of room, I think, for an enterprising Dem candidate for the senate to run on free markets &--wait for it--open borders!
While others watch the #WCWS imagining the ones with hairbows naked, I'm imagining the hairbow-wearers also wearing gypsy-style peasant dresses. Not a Stevie Nicks-style shawl, just the gypsy thing. #MAGA #resist
.@Randy1116: GOP isn't exactly trying to "undercount non-Whites" as @Susan_Hennessey says. They favor fans (most of whom are White). Dems want to count as many non-Whites as possible for a similar reason: most vote Dem. Hennessey isn't honest enough to make that distinction.
.@Leslie_resists: Trump & Dem leaders both want to "fix" #immigration via a massive amnesty that will give Big Biz all the cheap labor they crave. Did you see @robastorino oppose what U.s. Chamber wants? Of course not: like Trump he's a Big Biz stooge. Libs shouldn't be like him
.@DeliaMacD1: both USA & Canada (& Switzerland, etc.) have a very high # of guns per capita. How many Canadian/Swiss mass shootings have there been? There must be something else involved, right? @Darw1nEvolution has a different agenda than solving problems. #GunControlNow
#WCWS is paused for 10 minutes because someone ran over the generator at the ballpark, knocking out the lights.
If I heard it right (this isn't a joke, so verify), #Oklahoma pitcher G Juarez left #ASU because it was (if I read between the lines correctly) too secular & too much of a party school. That's the opposite of that celeb welp. #WCWS #MAGA #resist
"Trump to Award Economist Arthur Laffer the Presidential Medal of Freedom". The vast majority of his base won't have any issues w/ that: they think "trickle down" only harms others. #TheResistance is too dumb & deranged to show that wrong.
That said, some conservatives are, I assume, good people. I haven't met any or heard of any and I'd be completely shocked if there are any, but just to cover my bases I'll assume there must be *some*, or at least two or one. #MAGA #resist
The far-left & other control freaks take advantage of crises to push #GunControlNow (after shootings), censorship (due to Putin), etc. etc. The loudest opponents to those are conservatives: the dumbest, most deranged, most unethical, worst people not currently institutionalized.

.@LilDramaShow: naivete is only the start of @jeanmobilia 's issues. What do Cruz, Laughner, Lanza, the VTech shooter, etc., etc. all have in common? It's not race. It's not gender unless one wants to suspect all males. It's not guns either. What is it? #GunControlNow '
.@ConnersSandy: for an unknown reason, @joelleyden isn't trying to solve the root problem. The great majority of non-terrorism mass shootings involve those who a) were mentally ill, and b) who those around them were worried about. #GunControlNow is only a "solution" for the dim.

.@JoelKlebanoff: it'd be smart of @damianpaletta to call Trump/his proxies on how Trump ignores root cause: Big Biz/Dem leaders/NGO leaders/wealthy. Trump perp walking Tyson Food execs & making smart arguments that undercut Dem leaders to their base = much less illegal immig.
