I think the thing is, all the insanity is causing a time dilation effect where it seems time has no real meaning. I can hardly believe we're only in year two of the Fanta Menace (kudos to whoever came up with that one). It feels like it's the tenth millennium of the Orange Age.

This was most definitely not my finest hour, but thanks to the mod or admin that still made it go green and corrected it (After I self-reported the mistakes.)

In my version of hey cool news, I bought tickets to see Smashing Pumpkins in August and my baby momma is going to let him skip his first day of school so he can go with me.

They are.  They're moving him out of VIP country club prison and into former home of 9/11 terrorists prison.

I thought that was an offer of one of the two courts over his whining that he's too far away from his lawyers and can't prepare his defense adequately.  "LOL we can move you closer!" and he said "NO THANKS!"

Now today Mueller's filed saying the asshole is livin' it up in his VIP cell with SPECIAL PRIVILEGES including his own laptop, work room, access to his lawyers from 8:30a to 10pm, and oh, HIS OWN PHONE LINE 12 HOURS A DAY.

If Manafort was one of us, he'd be in gen pop and see his lawyers maybe once a week.

If he was a poor black man, he'd be lucky to see his lawyers at all and his case would be on the back burner to let him stew for a while.

Manafort's a rich white guy who posted $10M bail to avoid jail and blew it because he thought he could get away with witness tampering while out, and now he's thinking he can whine about how bad he has it to the courts while saying (ON HIS PERSONAL, HIS-USE-ONLY, SPECIAL RECORDED JAIL LINE) how great he's got it in the VIP cell and that he's all set to go to trial, having reviewed everything.


Apparently he's still merrily contacting people "not his lawyers" as well. I am starting to think this is not a very bright guy.

No, the judge called his bluff and ordered him moved yesterday.  He said never mind, I don't really want to move.  But today, as I understand it, the judge said "Tough shiat, reap the whirlwind biatch" (paraphrasing) and denied his request to stay in the prison he was in.

hey guys! I see you already saw the news about manafort..now this phone thing..does that mean he got moved to the new jail even though he changed his mind and said he didn't want to move after all?

and if the lawyers are doing this with the laptop..will they be facing charges too?

also, I have this dream where even Trump's nomination is dirty and they all get arrested together one glorious day.


I put some photos on kofi today too. Just looked and saw I had a donation and have transferred it to my bank and hope it gets there in time for this one check still left out there to go through so enough will be in it to go trhough. The way my luck is going, i probably should have done it sooner, but I have beenhaving a lot ofdifficulty in concentrating recently. Also getting some dizzy spells. The VA will evnetually get around to seeing me and deciding to operate on what needs operating on eventually. maybe.

if it doesn't kill me first. I'm not in too much pain today, although my keyboard is acting up. my neck and back hurt but it is what it is.


this is one of the photos I added..mostly focused on my best flower pics I took in Negril with today's stuff:

Even used, if you can find it, is going to be a solid chunk of change and the OS is way out of date.  I originally got the Asus as my "pocketbook" PC - something I could take with me and use while waiting or lay on the sofa and read comic books from the in-house stash of 80,000+ electronic issues.  Then the kid swiped it to use as her bedroom computer.
