I haven't seen so much bulls**t in a stockyard. You should go back to writing for Pravda.

Meanwhile the economy is melting down while these bozo’s attack a man no longer president. I sincerely hope they crash the economy.

So, by this time tomorrow will he still be out of jail? Do we have odds?

Expand full comment

He'll be out of jail. His attorneys will have ONE more chance to shut him up.

Expand full comment

And then one more chance and then one more chance

Cause this one is for "threats"

The next one will be for like doxxing or something

When do you suggest we surrender?

I am amazed at the general tone of defeatism and despair here and elsewhere.

William Safire, Agnew's speechwriter, called such folks "Nattering Nabobs of Negativism".

This was hilarious, even though Safire was a dreadful right-winger and Agnew both a dreadful right winger AND a straight-up crook.

However, there is one thing that's common to all of these complaints: the internet. My hope is that Donnie Dipshit is banned, and his attorneys get that message.

Expand full comment

he'll just do what he did when Twitter had banned him: have someone else post his screeds for him

That loophole should not be too hard to close.

We're on the same schedule, although your storms will likely be "more damaging" what with you below the Mason-Dixon line and all.

Our real problem is that, having been mostly underwater until (geologically) relatively recently, most of our soil is sand over clay over rock

So the trees are pretty much not anchored all that great.

Side note: Makes for easy digging. You know if you hit clay ain't no people living there.

Had brunch with my fellow lawyer friend J on Saturday. We both agreed that while the country has collectively gone to shit, this is an excellent time for legal nerds to be alive.

We are so lucky to have so many lawyers here!

It would be cool if some of them used their Substack

to talk about their experiences and breakdowns of what's

going on *Cough* 2Cats, *Cough*

GURRL. I’ve started writing more Legal Story Times, and cross-posting to Notes. Posted one just last night about Protective Orders.

I do need to figure out how to actually have my own Substack, but my brain doesn’t fully function when it’s so hot out.

Expand full comment

Agree. I created a Substack, but mow I'm going to have get somewhat familiar on how to use it fast.

I'm going to try to use it for my great reveal soon.

Great reveal expected this weekend.

Please, please , pretty please this weekend. I don't want any more delays.

NB: Awaiting in great anticipation!

Expand full comment

I'm looking at these substacks as such an gift,

to have this ability to write like this....with a built in audience

No need to do it all at once, I just think your ideas and thoughts are ready

for a bigger pond and this is it.

Let me know if I can help, I've been poking around and taking notes

Expand full comment

Thanks! I guess I need to figure out how to best use the different options. I find chat a bit overwhelming, but I’m ok with Notes and Comments.

Posting to my own Substack might be useful for Legal Story Times and other, longer posts, but I’m not entirely sure how that works.

Expand full comment

Thanks. I'm going to be trying this soon.

What Donald Trump needs is a swift kick in the entitlement followed by a few days off the golf course and in a cell, to teach him that he's just like the rest of us and needs to shut the fuck up and stop threatening people.

Expand full comment

He's stupid and cannot learn. Also too, he's vicious and petty.

Expand full comment

And vengeful.

Oh my doG! Now I realize why the cult idolizes him so much. He is vengeful like their bronze age God that they idolize.

Even OT God would look at these folks and go "I say, that might be a bit too far"

It is a (much needed) rainy "Bailiff Whack His Pee-Pee" Monday here on the gold coast of Connecticut. I expect all the judges will toss all of the Donnie motions out like yesterday's trash. This isn't state court, dipshit, and these aren't hack attorneys from Queens.

There is a certain unnerving steely quality to Mr Smith. And Ms Willis doesn't take any shit, either.

Expand full comment

Insulting DC appears to be an actual strategy, directed rather than random assholery. Get all the people in DC mad at you, then claim you can’t get a fair trial there because they’re all mad at you.

Then the judge HAS to let him move the trial to WV, right?

Somehow I feel this legal strategy will work as well as all the other legal strategies.

Expand full comment

It's what he does with judges, too.

heh

Have 'em move it to Virginia. Northern Virginia.

Lethim insult Trumpkin's state ^.^

The DC metro and a large chunk of the mid-south are in the “enhanced” area for severe storms for today. Granted, the fireworks aren’t expected until late afternoon.

Expand full comment

It was expected though

Spend the past few days bitching and moaning about judge, then demand recusal

Think he's done that a few times now, no?

Expand full comment

And he hasn't won any of those that I can remember.

I seem to remember a hispanic judge during the steal nonsense I think? Somewhere?

UGH!

Having a major problem with Substack on my Android phone.

If I open someone's substack to see a photo and then click to embiggen my phone freezes. Nothing works. At that point all I can do on the phone is see that picture. Nothing else.

I have to physically turn off the phone then back on to restore phone functionality.

Doesn't happen on the laptop.

Just the phone.

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!

Expand full comment

The major problem is your Android phone, or any kind, for that matter.

Expand full comment

Are you using the app? I found it to be shit. If I got to notes on my android, it takes a strange process of backing up and then coming back in, but I don't lose my spot in the comments which is a delight. It sounds like your problem is different and more annoying... I'm really just commiserating with you.

Thanks for this reply!

No, I'm not using the app because I've see comments from others about the app that say same message about it.

If I'm using the phone and want to see someone's posted images, I am going to have to copy the link, email it to myself, and use the computer some other time.

GRRRRRRRRR5!!!! this sucks.

It is not an improvement!!!!!!!

Expand full comment

Could you skip the photos until you get toa computer and then just check out their notes?

I did the follow/stalk thing on a few frequent noters here so I could just, as it were, look at ALL the things from time to time. Might be better than emailing yourself and going through that?

Expand full comment

Probably, but that seems just as bad. I would then have to remember what I wanted to see and who posted it many hours later.

I repeat in without being able to use bold, italic, underline emphasis.

GRRRRRRR

I said t=it before, and I'll say it again... maybe the STUPIDPHONE is the rreal problem. What anyone would use that on this site is unbelievable!

Expand full comment

oh no I know it is not ideal, at all and I feel your pain on that one for sure XD /would like embedding please!

I just cruise notes in the morning of the folks I follow as "part of it all" now. Luckily when I go to notes,it shows me all the recent things of all the folks I follow so that ain'thard for me. NOT for everyone. Just how I am handling this one

Expand full comment

I think I might start doing this too.

The embedding was nice and I miss it. It was nice to be able to easily see the train of thoughts/commenting.

PS: Thanks for your commiseration. It is appreciated.

Aside, I hope I said that wordifing well.
