Thanks, Clarice.
Are you in Atlanta, my man? If not, where generally are you living? I wouldn't have any issue at all with a meet-up if I'm ever in your area.
Clarice, that article mentions Jack Hellner and quotes him but has no link. Who is he, where did that quote come from? Am I overlooking something in my haste?
quote cited by hrtshpdbox: Pondering daddy's death was like re-visiting 9/11. It had an effect on me. I had started "talking" to him a bit here for the first time, probably, since I've been here. I'd say something, he'd reply, or vice versa. In fact, in the last thread he posted on I had posted as well, there was some friendly exchange, I think. Then, as happens with me, something happened on the thread where I didn't want to read that thread anymore, and I didn't - I picked up with the next thread. And that's where I found out what happened, then watched everyone here be the group that they are, and which I'm not part of. So that leads to some reflection, of course, and thoughts. I didn't post for two months, and no one noticed. And it's been instructive to me, in a way. Posted by: hrtshpdbox | August 15, 2019 at 08:16 AM I'm not following what you're communicating here, hrt. If it's opening something of a wound to discuss, please disregard. If not, can you clarify?
I'll be damned; I can post using my normal process. Will wonders never cease? * * * I stopped asking myself questions that had no answers. Posted by: jim nj | August 15, 2019 at 06:08 AM Congratulations, Jim.
Test.
Face it, the Democrats know they are going to lose the 2020 election. This scrap? This is about who will control the party in the run-up to 2024 when they will have flushed the Clinton's and (they hope) figured out who is running "the yard," so to speak. The crazy far-left is outfoxing the stupid leftwingers right now. But . . . does our President have a plan to deal with the crazy far-left ??? It's hard to believe he doesn't. But first? The crazy far-left has to win this battle over the stupid leftwingers . . . right? Gotta run; back later today.
MM, re the President's tweets, this is what I just posted. If you read the President's tweets and re-tweets over the last 9-10 hours . . . man, I can hear the rockets red glare and the bombs bursting in air. He clearly has the opposition on the run. #KeepAmericaGreat2020 You get the sense, don't you, that he totally has them on the run and the natural course of things is playing out as expected. Faith, patience, and vigilance. * * * Henry, I may see her in the next few weeks. Catsmeat, too. That subject will certainly come up.
I'm okay with Tom R. But, I haven't read or engaged in the constant back and forth and I -- again, for emphasis -- don't want today to be point/counterpoint. I'll hopefully be dropping in at different times today but things are going on in my world and yours, too, no doubt. That said, I'm certain a truce had been called. I want the truce to be observed. Tom R, if you're reading this and willing, please eMail me: rattlergator at gmail dot com.
Damn, Jim -- next to no libido ??? . . . (conjures up Apocalypse Now imagery) . . . The horror !!!
Yeah, I've heard. A worthy adversary; I will not underestimate him. Pelosi, however, may have done so. Well, that's it for me tonight. Hopefully I'll be able to spend some time on the board tomorrow.
That Saikat Chakrabarti guy with the Justice Democrats should not be underestimated. We'll see how he (and they) clap back at Pelosi and the establishment Democrats. It looks kinda-sorta like Pelosi will use the Congressional Black Caucus as the tip of the spear in their effort to take these Justice Democrats out.
I've engaged PT a bit more reliably in the last few weeks and made good progress. Still haven't made it to aqua therapy yet. The political / podcast project is frustratingly still in neutral. I may abandon waiting on the folks who approached me and focus my attention elsewhere. Jane had previously suggested this and she may be right. The effort to clean up the family estate issues in Georgia is moving forward and no one has filed with the Court to have me fired . . . yet. So, hope springs eternal.
Love you, Brainiac.
Hey, y'all. The storm clouds are gathering, aren't they? The Trump Admin continues to inspire confidence, doesn't it? Faith, patience and vigilance reigns supreme! Now . . . about this board. I will not cite names, but reading this thread: I could have sworn in an earlier drop-in a month or three back a truce was called and everyone was moving on and scrolling on by when necessary. Right? Let it be so, please. Men folk, please. This place is too valuable to devolve into that shiznit.
Good morning. I have a question for anyone on the board with a thought on this, whether a lawyer or not. Forgive me if I've asked this here before and my increasingly forgetful mind has forgotten. Wifey has a favored former student living in Atlanta who is caught up in a California case that is essentially a quiet title lawsuit dressed up as intentional infliction of emotional distress, etc. He's a social worker and I've advised him to begin serious work on an access to courts article, written from a social worker perspective. Thus, this question: What duty, if any, does a court of competent jurisdiction owe to an out-of-state defendant dragged into civil court and defending himself pro se with no intention of hiring an attorney? Hmmmmmmmmmm ???

Very good, catsmeat. I've needed an excuse to visit Pinellas County and this should do. * * * peter, I have 2 bros and 6 sis's. the bros never have drama and the sis's always do. Posted by: bubarooni | June 19, 2019 at 09:19 PM With two brothers and three sisters, this is my experience as well. It was a continuing lament of my mother that her daughters had so much difficulty enjoying the company of one another. We boys certainly have our issues but we're generally able to hang out and have fun with one another. Not so with the females.

RG, if you're still around, happy birthday! Like Lyle, I too will be 60 for just a space more (till next Wednesday, to be specific!). Posted by: Catsmeat | June 19, 2019 at 04:19 PM Thank you, love. I resolved this morning that come hell or high water I was going to monitor the board -- off and on -- morning, noon, and night on this special day. If y'all organize a Gulf Coast or Atlantic Coast meet up, publicize it please. I will do my best to find my way there.

Ha !!! Squaw heap big moron. Love you, Iggy. * * * RG, the City of TLH energy auditors seem to almost always recommend more insulation, and the City offers Ceiling Insulation Grants. Never hurts! Posted by: fdcol63 🇺🇸 | June 19, 2019 at 09:59 AM Yeah, I already have heavy-duty insulation in the attic. I'm about to move some excess crap up there, he advised against it but . . . sorry, bruh, it's hap'nin! Top tip: turn off the hot water heater for most hours of the day. That's a bit problematic in my house since it's on an outside junction but I may try it. And, my man, I noticed the other day you're still hanging with The Ledge and holding on tight to your famous pessimism. Time for another round of steak and brews !!!

Thanks, everyone. Energy audit guy from the city is on the way to the house, time to see what my taxpayer dollars can do for me today.

Good morning, everybody. Hang in there, rse! Well, this boy (that would be me) turned 60 today and I am supremely pleased to remain one in the number. Six decades completed and looking forward to as many more as I can get.

My guess is whatever it is will be resolved within the 90 days Powell says she will need to review the case. IMO that's just a cover story. Flynn and Powell already know exactly how this is going to end. Posted by: Tom R | June 13, 2019 at 11:33 AM Exactly right. I seem to remember commenting to Clarice that this whole bit about them having to sell their house or getting bankrupted over these charges struck me as totally odd. They are using General Flynn and these bogus charges to hide their hand on what they are *really* investigating, what they are really preparing to prosecute. Here's my additional two cents: Flynn's prior lawyers were placeholders. Trump, along with his entourage, is staging a truly historic event. General Flynn is at the center of the staging. * * * I find Hodes speciality, Intriguing.... Posted by: Melinda | June 13, 2019 at 03:20 PM Hmmmmmmmm . . . fluent in Chinese, and then this: He [Hodes] gained a national reputation as a scholar, consultant, and expert witness in the areas of Legal Ethics and Professional Responsibility, as they were then known. Legal Ethics and Professional Responsibility, huh? I suspect this lawyer will be crucial in dealing with the nexus revolving around global money laundering, the Chinese purchase of Bottom Bitches throughout our political class, and the wholesale lack of compliance in DC with FARA. On multiple occasions I can recall reading this board and current events while noticing over and over there is a word missing from our national conversation, and that word is duty. Members of the legal profession have failed the nation, especially in DC, by not meeting the duty they owe to *all* of us. Criminally, or merely criminal negligence, or just ethically. I want to see a bunch of people disbarred, and still others prosecuted. I fully expect the Trump Administration to deliver on this score.

Hyundai fob sensitivity is fob specific, especially the damn alarm button. Ask me how I know that one... Posted by: Melinda | June 13, 2019 at 09:01 AM I see you have experience with this situation, Melinda! Well, the damn thing did it again this afternoon. I think they're gonna have to give me another fob.

Thanks, Buckeye. The question of a cover is one I will address with them this morning.

And AB, not that I noticed. The fob does seem to be well-designed/constructed.
