cease and desist letter for serial harassment and unhinged rantings, state of receipt (update 5)

You’re joking, right?

I want to take this opportunity, as I wait for the USPS to find and forward me the letter that someone paid an attorney good money to draft and then mail to an address where I don’t live — and couldn’t have lived for the past nearly 5 years (though we don’t know what address that is, or when the mail was sent, just as we don’t know when my serial cyber-harassment was supposed to have taken place, nor from what email account these “unhinged” “rants”, as they’ve been described by a DDA who claims never to have seen them or read them but who nonetheless felt comfortable classifying them, emanated) — to re-post links to the various essays of mine that started (and then re-started) this whole ugly ball rolling. Because as I was revisiting them over the past few days, I was struck by just how concerned they were with trying to engage with ideas (mostly about language), and were really anything but the “attacks on honor” the DDA and his band of howler monkeys has subsequently made them out to be.

But don’t believe me. Look for yourselves:

1) On Nobility. In which the “good man” trope is born.
2) Outlaw Speak (the follow-up).
3) Letterman’s “rape” joke (Frey waited, then later noted that I had “defended child rape” — I shit thee not! Lots of very good debate in the comment section. Note, most people disagreed with me, and I managed to argue throughout a 600 comment thread without pretending anyone issued a death threat and banning him or her.)
4. how I learned to stop worrying and love the f bomb, guest-posted on Hot Air (back before Frey’s campaign to have me booted from polite company hit its highest gear).
4) In which I don’t defend child rape, despite the claim that I do.
5) More language lessons, revisited — the post in which I detailed why the public method Frey deployed to vet Stacy McCain was linguistically flawed (and a bit unseemly).
6) Which of course, led to Frey’s series of posts about how Jeff Goldstein is violent; an intellectual fraud; not a man of substance; likes to play the race card, etc. My response was to show Frey how his OWN arguments defending his “investigation” of Stacy McCain’s (potential) racism works, and the dangers inherent to itclearly spoofing Frey’s own posts and using the opportunity to point out the linguistic problems with such arguments.

And there are others, but you get the point. And can see the pattern.

I am re-posting these because I want people to pay attention to my actual arguments, not to the meta-narrative that has been pushed to describe them. Are they really the kinds of personal attacks that should have provoked the kind of response they did? Or do they fit in perfectly with my myriad other critiques of language (a constant site theme since its founding), namely, that allowing the validity of certain linguistic and hermeneutic assumptions will necessarily create and/or strengthen the foundation for a progressive takeover of our epistemological assumptions, and so determine our very “knowledge”?

These are big, important questions, I believe. But rather than allowing them to be asked, Frey has been more concerned with making sure the asker is diminished and removed from the public conversation.

And that’s just sad, in my opinion.

Be that as it may, I spoke to the special investigator in the LA County DA’s office today and outlined my concerns over Frey’s continued recalcitrance in releasing information that could help me clear my name and find who has taken on my identity and used it in the course of a potential crime. For those of you interested, I provide an overview of that conversation here.

    i think i’ll eat an ham.

    no, two.

  2. I think we started having trouble with the language when “I think, therefore I am” was replaced with “I feel, therefore I am.”

    I’ve worked diligently to replace “feel” with “think.” Rather than the common “I feel you are wrong,” I try to say “I think you’re an idiot and stuff your fucking feelings where the sun don’t shine.”

    It’s my own little corner of the language battle.

  3. You’ve probably seen this:

    Paris Hilton prosecutor arrested for buying cocaine
    http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20110321/en_nm/us_hilton_prosecutor

    He did this on his own time and used no state-issued equipment.

  4. The sun’ll come out
    Tomorrow
    Bet your bottom dollar
    That tomorrow
    There’ll be sun!
    And that elusive cease and desist letter.

  5. Heck, just have him let me confirm things – I’ll hold it under privilege even. Jeff, you have my e-mail…

  6. “Patter-EE-koh”

    “Off the wall”

    Book him, Dan-o.

  7. Being Patterico is never having to say you are sorry.

  8. Patterico should take LTC John up on it, but he won’t. Because Patterico is lying.

  9. I don’t feel people are wrong, Blake. I don’t usually even think it.

    I just tell them “You ARE wrong.”

  10. I remember when the contretemps with Mr. Frey began. (I was lurking, a lot.)
    I remember feeling the argument just wasn’t worth it.
    I was wrong; you weren’t. It’s not right that you have to go through all this rubbish.

    Hmm. Four sentences starting with ‘I’. I sound like the prez. Oh, no!

  11. “I think, therefore I am” was replaced with “I feel, therefore I am.”

    You’ve been listening to Prager, haven’t you?

  12. I remember an episode of Law & Order where Sam Waterston was delivering his closing: “Give me $10,000 or I’ll tell your boss that you’re under investigation for murder. I’m the DA. They’ll believe me…” (slightly paraphrased)

    District Attorneys are held to a higher standard because of the potential power they hold. This stupid ass should lose his job if it can be shown that he lied about you (especially regarding allegations of criminal activity), and I would start mentioning civil damages against both Patty and the DA’s office. (You could get a dozen hungry – and mildly unscrupulous – lawyers to take such a case on spec, for a percentage of the inevitable settlement. And I’ll bet their C&D letters won’t get lost in any fictional mail drop from five years ago.)

    Don’t let him off the hook, Jeff…

  13. “Note, most people disagreed with me, and I managed to argue throughout a 600 comment thread without pretending anyone issued a death threat and banning him or her.)”

    Yes but I think I got the best of that one:

    Good times man, Good times;^)

  14. I know an attorney at Borg, Borgman and Borgenstein who can draft you a Resistance is Futile letter, if you like, Jeff.

  15. It seems like Jeff and his Klown posse are in permanent reruns with a weird auto-tuned version of history at his place. Vitriol, lies and lousy humor, it’s what’s for dinner. Rolaids extra.

    Tip your waitresses or waiters.

    Come back next week and Jeff will be singing the same song.

    Comment by daleyrocks — 3/22/2011 @ 11:45 am

    daleycocks sends his love.

  16. Jeff, do you think he might “quit you” after this episode? My guess is his ego just will not let him.

  17. dalyrocks is easily led by the nose, he never seems to have one original thought.

  18. That’s fine, Joe. Tell me, do they still believe that Obama is fundamentally a good man and a patriot who wants what’s best for the country?

    If so, I can certainly see why they haven’t yet figured Frey out.

  19. I dunno.

    These supposed emails gave a woman the vapors, turned her husband to a cringing sop, and their attorney into an idiot who can’t use the USPS (a core competency for those who send letters for a living).

    I know there isn’t a lot of love lost for Patterico here, but it seems to me like he’s let his trust and loyalty get in the way of his deductive skills.
    The story his friend is telling stinks a bit

  20. Well, I personally tend to see these as conforming to the recurring theme of your critique of the hijacking of language by the left, with all of the varied effects that flow from that hijacking.

    But, you know, I’m just another sycophantic flying monkey brown-shirt conforming to the “hive mind” that you enforce here by constant threats of violence and banning…

    Or at least that’s what I’ve heard.

  21. That’s fine, Joe. Tell me, do they still believe that Obama is fundamentally a good man and a patriot who wants what’s best for the country?

    If so, I can certainly see why they haven’t yet figured Frey out.

    All lies and jest,
    still a man hears
    what he wants to hear
    and disregards the rest.

  22. I doubt it, Garym. Which is a shame. But then, it’s my fault for using a Guardian headline while linking to a Guardian piece, then speaking only very generally about my continued support for nuclear energy.

    I really did bring it on myself, in other words.

  23. Jeff, I assume it is only a matter of time before they are calling for Frum-Med civility (between their ongoing personal attacks on you and the rest of PW, and a few stray party purge denouncements of happyfeet and JD).

    You, Levin, and Rush are too mean for them.

  24. Its funny, when I read that headline I was wondering at the time what Frey thought about it, because it just screamed reoccurring blog war. Well to me anyways.

  25. I feel dirty when Joe types my name.

  26. You two, dont make me come in there!

  27. And hey! “Lousy humor”? I beg your pardon.

    For instance:

    Q: Why did daleyrocks cross the road?
    A: Patterico told him to. And the little bitch poodle actually obeyed!

    Sorry. But that right there is gold.

  28. Does (BAD,JUVENILE HUMOR ALERT!!) Daleycocks actually not understand that we are bored to fucking tears with this shit? It’s as if he thinks Jeff wants to waste his time fending off Frey’s sliming off him.

  29. Q: How many Eric PWJohnsons does it take to change a light bulb.
    A: Just one. Provided someone else is around to tell him what a light bulb is, explain to him how to remove the old one, and show how to screw in the new one. And assuming Eric’s able to find the dark room in the first place. Given how fucking dumb he is.

  30. Dead on, Abe. Which is why I’ve been kicking myself for linking that Guardian story. I should have known that would attract Frey.

    Mostly because I wrote it.

  31. Why does this shit always wind up happening to you?

  32. BECK! Where the hell have you been?

    And to answer your question, the fact that I’m an asshole probably has a bit to do with it.

  33. “Klown posse”

    Clowns scare me. Always have. If I’m going to be in a posse I want to be Annie Oakley.

  34. Spelling it with a K shows you’re down with the urban argot.

    Admit it. That dude just screams hipness.

  35. Annie Oakley?

    A mirror, and a rifle, some assembly required.

    OH SHIT!

  36. OT: just pulled 205 on v-bar again. Also got the 30lb blob both pinched and by the face, both hands, first tries.

    I really do need to learn deadlift technique, though. Getting that v-bar up should be easier. It’s not my grip that’s going, it’s my footwork.

  37. He’s a poseur. He has no clue that the Insane Klown Posse are passe. Like 2005. Which was a very meh year for well, pretty much everything.

    Who cares to watch them fuck on stage when the live performances in Washington are so in vogue. The AVN Award for the last two years has gone to the democrats for Best Anal, the MBM for Best Oral (in a supporting role) and the taxpayers – they were fucked nine ways til Sunday and didn’t even get an award.

    Sadly the Best Tease performance was the Republican Leadership in a landslide.

  38. JD posted on 3/22 @ 9:40 pm
    I feel dirty when Joe types my name.

    That is the Patterico rubbing off on you. I noted you were being attacked by the dicks over there.

  39. Of all the IP address’ in all the whole universe, why did our host get pegged as the guy who couldn’t pass up wrestling any pig; whether it be merely mud or, sadly sometimes, feces he (da host) would feel compelled to wrestle in.

    Bad luck.

  40. Why did firefox think I wanted a clone of explorer? The stupid page reload is in the wrong place in version 4.

  41. Ah fuck it, I think I shoulda put a “?” in there at some point.

    I didn’t.

    J.G. wins.

    Again.

    QED

  42. Jeff,

    You made another comment admitting that you still seek a confrontation with Scott Jacobs?

    And you mentioned that you wanted him to say it to your face that you were – I believe – a Hausfrau(sp)

    IS this another attempt to seek a physical confrontation or more of your alleged deep cynical musings and rantings for ratings and readership to enrich yourself?

    You are also I see making statements about my intelligence, made a homosexual slur against another commentator on another blog, and in general are trying to create something for your own enrichment and that of your wife and family is this not correct? Ginning up these make believe arguments, encouraging people to donate to watch the fracas, to join in and partake of it, all under the thinly veiled guise of political and social commentary?

    Is your wife aware of under the laws of the State of Colorado that anything acquired and enhanced during a marriage could be considered property and responsibility of both?

    You are going around smearing me, saying things that are untrue about me knowingly and willingly, all to excite your readership as you advertise your professional expertise on professional networking sites for contracts while using my name to generate hits showing interest as a professional highlight to ensare contracts and writing postions for your families enrichment?

    Is it true that Hotair let you go?

  43. this another attempt to seek a physical confrontation

    YES! For God’s sake YES. Speaking for myself of course. I don’t know SEK. Don’t know EPWJ. But we are where we are now, because there is no threat of any physical confrontation between humans anymore.

    Is it really civilized to say things about people or to people or about people’s loved ones without fear of reprisal? Is it really brave to speak ‘truth to power’ when it really takes no bravery at all because you’re just waiting to say “If you punch me, I’ll sue.”?

    And as far as intelligence goes, nobody cares. And Eric, you shouldn’t care what someone says about your intelligence. If you’re smart enough to not walk into a train while listening to your iPod, then you’ve got a chance. If you’re not, you don’t. That’s your business.

    It can get pretty pathetic watching all these disembodied brains in aquariums comparing their intellectual wiener size. It’s refreshing to hear someone bring physical harm back into the equation. There are people who can take care of themselves and there are people who can’t. There was a time when a loudmouth who couldn’t take care of himself would be taken care of. And it’s good that there are still a few places where that loudmouth is seen for what he is: a coward.

  44. You are also I see making statements about my intelligence

    Your entire comment speaks for itself in that regard, genius. The gutless maneuver of slipping it in under the cover of darkness rather suggests that you too know your own limitations. You really should confine your battles to the kiddie pool until at least such time as you’ve learned to control your bladder.

  45. Man, I’m missing some good posts over here. Sigh. Hubby was in a car wreck last week (not his fault, the other driver has been cited for negligent/careless driving) – and I’ve had to drive him back and forth to doctor appointments. Broken vertebrae. Sore everywhere. etc. Entire days sucked up trying to deal with healthcare BS. YOU do NOT want to get me started on what a racket all that stuff is. $150 for a neck brace, that we need to pay cash for? W. T. F. Which may, or may not fit, and it will take 7-10 days to come in. We are well and truly fucked, when you can’t get what you need, when you need it.

    Anyway, I just wanted to note that there was a lot of good stuff for me to attempt to skim.

    Oh, and of course, car is totaled. We only carried liability, since it was an older, but great car.

    I can’t really keep up with this dealo. I kinda understand. (sorry for the rant)

  46. Eric, you dumb cocksucker. Your name does not generate hits. It generates scrolling.

  47. EricPWJohnson, why are you here? You come in here, not mentioning Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Patrick Frey even once in your comment; have you no defense you’d like to offer up on his behalf? No arguments for support of his latest fabrication, that an (imaginary) ‘lawyer-friend’ sent a ‘C&D letter’ on behalf of a harmed ‘client’? That’s an argument you’ve conceded, obviously, since, you’ve moved on to even shiftier sands.

    Patrick Frey lied, and you’re over here babbling about some butt-hurt you and that little whinebot Scott Jacobs suffered months ago? Patrick Frey must think of you as Charles Johnson does about his useful idiot Kilgore Trout: needs a shorter leash.

    As for the other, both of you just get over it, you whiny little ignorant punks.

  48. Sorry to hear of that, Carin. Here’s hoping your husband recovers soonest.

  49. Oh, and of course, car is totaled. We only carried liability, since it was an older, but great car.

    It’s the other guys fault. Tell me he was carrying insurance??? That company has to pay out the “total” to you. It may not be much on an older car, but it should be something.

    Good thoughts your way for hubby’s fast recovery.

  50. EricPWJohnson

    I just looked up the word “non-sequitur” in the dictionary and found your picture next to it.

  51. Non-sequitur means retarded? Learn something new every day!

  52. EPWJ …. although, considering your considerable character, I’m surprised I don’t see your picture on a milk carton …

  53. But EricPWJohnson, didn’t you get the memo from Pattericos’ Obersturmbannführer daleycocks that Jeff mines all your personal data if you come here and uses it against you? Oh wait, perhaps Jeff does not?

  54. Carin, I am sorry you and your husband are going through that. I hope the other driver’s insurance is not only taking are of your car but your husband’s injuries too.

  55. EPWJ …. although, considering your considerable character, I’m surprised I don’t see your picture on a milk carton …

    Because the milk would sour immediately?

  56. Oops. SEK and Scott Jacobs are apparently not the same person.

  57. But in my defense, SEK is most likely a hybrid of Scott Jacobs and EricPWJohnson.

  58. You have our prayers, Carin.

    Epwj drools while standing up. He is one of the most self-aggrandizing imbeciles I have ever encountered. Unaware of how stupid he is.

  59. The stupid usually are, JD.

  60. Alp – let us hit the links. Soon.

  61. Hey EricPWJohnson, your intelligence would probably remained unassailed if you learned things like sentence structure, punctuation, etc.

  62. D’oh, remain, not remained.

  63. You do realize Pee Wee only comes over here because it’s the only way he gets attention without humping the Patrick Frey, Esq. we all know and laugh at behind his back’s leg?

  64. Carin, was it a Kia van? Since the first of the year, my wife, our neighbor and my eye doctor all smashed up their brand new Kia minivans. I think it’s a Nork plot to take over rural Indiana, one Toyota knock off at a time.

  65. It was an Acura RSX. We HAVE to buy a new car – my husband drives so many miles, and the used market is bad (thanks Obama!)

    Anyway, we signed on the dotted line yesterday. Guess what we bought? Honda Insight. It’s a hybrid.

    I’m gonna get one of those coexist stickers.

  66. “Klown posse”

    Must be an ICP fan.

    they are horrible.

    I mean, just awful.

  67. Darleen,

    I’ve heard the name Prager, but I’m not aware of what he does.

    Honestly, I’ve been onto the “I feel” versus “I think” scam for 20 years.

    Although the whole feelings scam has probably been going on longer than that.

  68. Yes, Darleen the guy was insured. Basically, it was a situation of road rage. dude wanted to pass the guy driving in the fast lane beside my husband. So he used the dirt median going 65 MPH.

    Flipped two cars.

  69. Cain,

    I hear you about the used car market.

    My daughter was looking at used cars. Going price for a decent used car is $10,000.

  70. Oops.

    Cain should be Carin.

    Sorry about that.

  71. Is it true that Hotair let you go?

    non sequitur is practically the best tool in Eric’s box.

  72. Eric gets beat on like a pinata over at Patterico’s too.

    Seemed like a half hearted attempt to bait Jeff into sending intemperate email(s) so Eric could sue… jeez.

    That’s the ticket… hey, maybe that should have been Obama’s strategy in Libya. It fits the maturity profile of his administration. Obama hasn’t seen such heady, giddy days of foreign policy since Freshman year when he signed that pledge to boycott Israeli cous cous. “The jews are rubbing semolina into little balls between dirty, moneygrubbing bloodstained fingers…!!! We must act now. Divest your cupboards”

  73. Yeah, buying a used car now sucks thanks to Obama destroying thousands of perfectly good ones. The man can fuck up anything. Carin, sorry about your husband’s accident and here’s hoping to him getting better and soon.

    EPWJ, re-read Abe’s #28. Then read it again. Sooner or later, you and the other dumbasses fellating on the joke of a DDA, will understand Jeff’s position. Patterico can make it all go away. He really can, little fella. And I’m betting Scott Jacobs is as big a pussy as you are a moron. Read Alpuccino’s #43 for a good primer on the efficacy of fear of reprisal. And if I’m remembering correctly, Scott was the asshole, Jeff called him on it. Scott shit his pants and Patterico, daleyrocks and you wiped his ass for him.

  74. You made another comment admitting that you still seek a confrontation with Scott Jacobs?

    That’s a question, not an observation. Hint: if you’re looking to make some kind of case, your evidence is not best & most willingly provided by your target. One would think any idiot would know this, but Eric is apparently not just any idiot.

    And you mentioned that you wanted him to say it to your face that you were – I believe – a Hausfrau(sp)

    That sounds reasonable, doesn’t it? Internet Warriors tend to be not quite so aggressive in person, and Jeff is simply calling him on it. You’d think any idiot…etc.

    Ginning up these make believe arguments, encouraging people to donate to watch the fracas, to join in and partake of it, all under the thinly veiled guise of political and social commentary?

    I’d guess, from what little I know about Jeff, that Jeff would be much happier without the rain of unsolicited snide comments, veiled accusations of teh crazee, etc that originate with Patrick Frey and/or Teh Jury. Why can’t you quit him?

    Is your wife aware of under the laws of the State of Colorado that anything acquired and enhanced during a marriage could be considered property and responsibility of both?

    See also my earlier comment as regards non sequitur. Really, is there any point that your question, above, is not beside?

    You are going around smearing me, saying things that are untrue about me knowingly and willingly, all to excite your readership as you advertise your professional expertise on professional networking sites for contracts while using my name to generate hits showing interest as a professional highlight to ensare contracts and writing postions for your families enrichment?

    This one is not so much non sequitur as it is in need of a decent Latin translation of What The Fuck? Seriously, Eric, just what the fuck are you trying to accomplish, here?

  75. Basically, it was a situation of road rage. dude wanted to pass the guy driving in the fast lane beside my husband. So he used the dirt median going 65 MPH.

    Flipped two cars.

    Now that brings up memories! Northbound on I-65 somewhere around Lebanon, IN. Holiday weekend, so traffic’s stacked up all the way to Chicago, doing maybe 30 if we’re lucky, and some super-genius in a Pontiac with a wide-eyed, screaming wife in the passenger seat and a baby in the back seat comes zooming up the median doing at least 60. He was holding on okay ’til he got to the emergency turnaround a hundred yards ahead of us, which launched him a good 8-10 feet in the air before he came down hard on the passenger front corner. Kinda scary, but really impressive!

    Being the good Christian souls that we are, the wife and I beeped our horn, waved and gave him the finger as we crept by. I’d like to think that the wife and kid got a lift from a kinder soul than I, and had the bags packed and the locks changed before Mr. Patience finished his police report.

    I didn’t notice at the time, but a very close, trusted source told me that the license plate on the rocket car was EPWJ. Hard to believe, but who am I to doubt a trusted source?

  76. Seriously, Eric, just what the fuck are you trying to accomplish, here?

    It ain’t that hard to figure out. The Jurors are seeding the site with comments that they can link to in the coming weeks, showing just how violent and stupid we all are. When they make those future links, you can bet your ass that they won’t make any note of their own role in instigating the blood feud, nor will they provide any context or fair representation of the arguments. No, they’ll just insinuate that Jeff’s a violent psychopath, and for evidence they’ll link to their comments insinuating that Jeff’s a violent psychopath.

    Because that’s what passes for “rock-solid evidence” with the Jeenius Jurors.

  77. Sorry to hear about the hubby, Carin. Thoughts and prayers.

    I had a fractured vertebra when I was 14 (freak wrestling injury; didn’t even notice it until 7th period, when I couldn’t stand up and couldn’t sit comfortably. Had to wear a kind of canvas brace with two curved rods in it for several weeks). Secret to recovery and remaining pain free going forward is keeping really strong around your abs and core.

  78. Eric gets beat on like a pinata over at Patterico’s too.

    Guess he’s given up on getting promoted to Sycophant Second Class. The promotion exam is what defeats him.

    It only has one question, but it’s a doozy: “What is the difference between your ass and a hole in the ground?”

  79. Being on a milk carton requires not only being lost but that someone wants to find you. That is not going to be an issue for Eric PW Johnson.

    I am sure he has been sent by Patterico and daleyrocks to sow some seeds of derision over here.

  80. Jeff,

    You made another comment admitting that you still seek a confrontation with Scott Jacobs?

    “Seek”? No. I responded to his comment saying I’d backed down from the mouthy pussy. And said that if he comes here to Colorado, I promise not to sue or call the cops should he want to call me a pansy or hausfrau or whathaveyou. Traveling to Illinois to confront him directly without certain assurances isn’t the best idea, I don’t think. I did, however, let people know where I’d be last time I was in Chicago. LMC and LTC John showed up. I don’t recall Jacobs dropping by.

    And you mentioned that you wanted him to say it to your face that you were – I believe – a Hausfrau(sp)

    I don’t want him to say anything about me. But if he’s going to, I’d prefer he’d do it in person. For instance, I’d happily tell you in person to zip your fly and try to stop drooling if you’re going to speak to me.

    IS this another attempt to seek a physical confrontation or more of your alleged deep cynical musings and rantings for ratings and readership to enrich yourself?

    It was a blog comment. Buried in the comments to one of many active threads. And written in reply to a comment copied from Frey’s site. Why do you care? Why are you even reading here?

    Oh. And stringing together words like “alleged deep cynical musings and rantings for ratings and readership to enrich yourself” doesn’t make you sound smarter. In fact, it has the opposite effect.

    You are also I see making statements about my intelligence, made a homosexual slur against another commentator on another blog, and in general are trying to create something for your own enrichment and that of your wife and family is this not correct?

    You are a sub-moron, yes. But no, I made no “homosexual slur” against another commenter at another blog. If some guy wants to wear another guy’s cock as a chinstrap, I don’t much care. Why are you asking these hamfistedly pointed questions? Are you pretending to play prosecutor? How darling!

    Ginning up these make believe arguments,

    To what does “these” refer? It is not an “argument” that you are a sub-moron, or that I don’t much care if one guy wants to play lollipop top to another guy’s love stick. Those are assertions made from observation. If the “argument” you are talking about, however, is yet this latest incident with Frey — who has accused me publicly of cyber-harassment — let me assure you it isn’t “make believe.” He actually did that, and I actually think he shouldn’t have and am taking steps to make sure I myself am not the victim of a crime.

    encouraging people to donate to watch the fracas, to join in and partake of it, all under the thinly veiled guise of political and social commentary?

    Oh, heaven’s no! I encourage people to donate to the thin political and social commentary. The fracases are just a bonus, membership having its privileges and all.

    Is your wife aware of under the laws of the State of Colorado that anything acquired and enhanced during a marriage could be considered property and responsibility of both?

    Hold on, let me ask her.

    She doesn’t have any idea what that’s supposed to mean. Her full response, “Was that even a sentence?”

    You are going around smearing me, saying things that are untrue about me knowingly and willingly, all to excite your readership as you advertise your professional expertise on professional networking sites for contracts while using my name to generate hits showing interest as a professional highlight to ensare contracts and writing postions for your families enrichment?

    “Smearing” you? No. I’m offering my opinion of your intellectual abilities, which I’m guessing is (as I believe I’ve said before) somewhere around the level of your average lemur. It’s true I’m saying that knowingly and willingly. It’s not true that what I’m saying is untrue. As your comment more than amply illustrates.

    Is it true that Hotair let you go?

    No it isn’t. Why do you ask?

  81. How darling!

    In the south, that would be “Bless your little heart.” And no, it’s not a compliment nor a blessing.

  82. Golf it is JD. Get Stephanie to drive or fly up if she’s around.

  83. Ha! Speak of the little darling. *kidding*

  84. It is not “smearing” to say that Pee Wee can’t get promoted to Sycophant Second Class, or that he tries to get attention by means other than humping the Patrick Frey, Esq. we all know and laugh at behind his back’s leg.

    It might be “smearing” to say that Pee Wee only got promoted to Sycophant Third Class because of the leg-humping, or that he only tries to get attention by means other than leg-humping when the Patrick Frey, Esq. we all know and laugh at behind his back smacks Pee Wee’s nose with a rolled-up newspaper and tells him to go away.

    It might be smearing. Or it might not be. There’s really no way to be sure either way.

  85. It’s funny when someone who’s kinda dumb tries to appear intelligent and fails mightily, EPWJ. It’s even more fun when that person gets cyber-smacked around a bit. So, thanks for the entertainment, little guy.

  86. Is Eric saying he was Swift Boated? How awful.

  87. LOL, wish I could alp… it’s the middle of HS golf season and the teen is busy, busy, busy. On the go every.single.day. Today is a match v one of our school’s rivals at our club. Tomorrow same as today… Saturday 18 hole tournament, Sunday, my day to play. Monday, another 18 hole tournament… repeat til you get golf (tennis) elbow and shin splints. Maybe when her season is over and graduation is done, we can find some time to play.

    I do get in 9 every day that they only have practice. I bought a push cart (saves the cart fees) and it’s killing me. Golf should be a good ride, spoiled (to paraphrase Twain).

    Spring Break is coming up and, yep, they are practicing at the State venue site the first half of the week. The second half? We are going to Carowinds, woot! Coaster time on the Intimidator. 236 ft lift hill and 83 MPH. #3 would be proud.

  88. Hi. Carin. I hope your husband gets better soon. Back pain is the worst. I wish him the best.

  89. Geez Steph, you are risking golf burnout. Maybe you should let your game marinate a little. Or not.

    But I’ll make you a deal: With all your practice, and the Southern advantage, if you come up some day, I’ll only ask for 2 a side.

    How could you resist?

  90. I, generally speaking, try to remain out of other people’s confrontations, but I have to ask: #42, what is it about adding an un-involved third party to this situation that appeals to you? To whit: “Is your wife aware of under the laws of the State of Colorado that anything acquired and enhanced during a marriage could be considered property and responsibility of both?” You will probably want to link to the statute you reference if you want anyone to take anything you say at face value, Skippy.

  92. Jeff, you have to admit that the incoherent attempt to get your wife to rein you in was pretty precious. It’s too bad he wasn’t able to tattle to your mom or your coach or your kindergarten teacher.

    “Jeff’s teasing me! Make him stop!”

  93. How could I resist? I can’t. I’ll have to take you up on it once things get less hectic. Or you could come down here. We could get JD and Bmoe and have a proper foursome.

    And I’m out… off to get my nails done and fetch the daughter for her match. Girly things and golf – what a combo!

  94. I read it as a veiled threat that someone is thinking about bringing some suit against me. While simultaneously developing the “homophobe” portion of the anti-Goldstein talking points.

    The irony of these folks using language the way I’ve been saying the leftists use language — while warning that those on the right who do so are accepting and legitimating the linguistic assumptions that give leftism its power — is lost on them, evidently.

    Every time they speak and act — removing context, bracketing (or downright lying about) intent — they make my argument for me. Best little helpers a guy could have, actually!

  95. I’m usually a lurker and just a reader, but I wanted to point out that I emailed Jeff once and got a reply that was civil and direct. I’m wondering what I’ve done wrong to not get harassing emails from Jeff.

  96. “I read it as a veiled threat that someone is thinking about bringing some suit against me.” My understanding as well, hence the request for clarification. Or an attempt to incite you?

  97. “I read it as a veiled threat that someone is thinking about bringing some suit against me.” My understanding as well, hence the request for clarification. Or an attempt to provoke you?

  98. I read it as a veiled threat that someone is thinking about bringing some suit against me.

    Indeed. It was the bit about making your wife aware that your blog was her legal responsibility that made me chuckle. I mean, it’s either a ploy to get her to shut you up, or an effort to guilt you into shutting up for her sake. Either way, the important part is that you shut up.

    Because pointing out the misbehavior of a certain DDA is just so much worse than the actual misbehavior of a certain DDA. Who, by the by, I’ve been told by a really, really trustworthy (yet terribly bashful) source is getting very worried that somebody tipped off his buddies on the force about where he keeps his ‘collection’ stashed away.

  99. Re: #80, Yes indeed – I stopped in and had a nice chat with Jeff and LMC (an intersting fellow, to be sure!). Jeff was really tired from travel and all the feats o’ strength (not Festivus related ones, mind you) – but he didn’t threaten or crush anyone that I saw… maybe while I was in the restroom he could have gone all psycho on someone, beat them senseless and ejected them from the bar before I got back. He is capable, dontchaknow!

  100. An interesting flip side to Eric’s odd “wife” comments is that, if true, Jeff has all the more reason to double down on finding the identity thief. Because that’s an ACTUAL crime, and apparently, one he needs to protect his wife from as well.

    So I’m curious, by Eric’s odd logic, should Jeff protect, or not protect his wife? And why would DDA Frey try to get in the way of Jeff protecting his wife? Why is Patric so against the safety and security of Jeff’s family? I thought Frey was an honorable man?

  101. That being said. Leave Jeffs family out of it.

  102. Steph – playing The Farm tomorrow ;-)

  103. Jealous!
