I know a guy, retired police officer, who bids on self-storage auctions. The ones where people are way behind in the rent.

It's more of a hobby than a business, but being retired, he's got plenty of time to do it.

When you win a bid you have to remove everything. So you need a truck and maybe a helper.

Some things are easily re-sold or can be donated easily. Other things aren't quickly marketable. So he ran out of room at home to store stuff.

Rented a fenced lot and bought some used shipping containers to handle the overflow.

The real problem is that he likes a lot of stuff he finds and won't part with it because it has a story and a history that goes with the acquisition.

So he buys more storage containers. Rinse and repeat.

My father liked to organize and cull stuff from our home. If he needed something he knew right where to find it.

He strongly encouraged me to do the same. (Father gives you the look. "Yes, dad.")

So I'd organize and cull. Every once in a while I'd need something and I knew I had thrown it out.

Puzzled by this I talked to my dad. He told me the only reason I remembered it was because I had found it and thrown it out. He was right. I hadn't remembered having the thing in the first place. Only remembered throwing it out.

if the FBI wanted to send agents into the White House itself to interview a senior official, you would work through the White House counsel

Pin,

Englewood hasn't had a Republican officeholder since I was a kid. It used to be a Republican stronghold, but it's solidly and reliably Democrat now.

If you win the Democratic primary you coast to victory in November.

The Bergen County Democratic Organization is constantly rebuffed in Englewood. Englewood has its' own team with its' own mind.

I don't pay as close attention to Englewood as when I lived there, but I visit and talk to people still there.

For a Democrat I would say that Wildes is pretty good. There is an Hispanic power bloc, black power bloc and a conservative Jewish power bloc that all need to be massaged and want money.

Wildes was a fiscal conservative on the council and then when he became mayor. The city's finances were way out of whack and he fought to get taxes stabilized before any pet projects got funding.

He was pro-development because the city needed more ratables built to hold down taxes.

I've never heard anything bad about him.

Mrs Kid took a spill coming out of the pool complex last week--she good and fell forward, landing in a plank position, but jammed up her shoulders. College Man is comin off a plain flight and the first few weeks of basketball season.

Me? i'm hittin the Safeway in Alameda a few blocks from Dr. Josh's bodyworks. then we'll fatten College Man up on some chinks, or I-talian-- whichever he decides. our favorite taqueria went tits up last month. he might be up for a waffle cone at Tuckers after dinz.

So great to have him home!

What is the 4D spin on Flynn for today? Mueller replied (under seal) and got a wrist slap from Sullivan. Flynn associates indicted. Seems straight forward Sullivan will sentence Flynn to “time served” as requested. Do people expect Sullivan to do something else, or just hope so?

my opinion, henry:

there is so much stink on this case that Sullivan could decapitate Mueller by tossing it.

but the "who" that's buttressing Mueller and *HIS* DOJ's belligerence and criminality makes it not so clear cut. i believe firmly that this Judge, and his family's lives are on the line.

so he'll do what is allowable by law, a minimum that "sends a message", but ensures face-saving for Mueller in order for him to putter along until the "new" HOR is seated.

we'll be underwhelmed.

I would be stunned if Judge Sullivan does that much.

I expect absolutely nothing from him. I have no hope at all that anyone In a position to do so will actually do anything even remotely approaching the right thing.

Account Deleted

i can grock to your view, James D. it's a form of the ol "null hypothesis."

'there is no evidence to suggest Judge Sullivan, or anybody else will do anything...."

of course, what you said stands on its own. i have a personal way of trying to assimilate others' views on this complex situation where we are like mushrooms. and, i am not used to living like this.

I agree with James D. @06:41.
If anyone was going to do the right thing, Mueller would never have been hired.

James D.

this complex situation where we are like mushrooms

Here are two things that are absolutely maddening to me.

First, this is NOT a complex situation. It's simple. Everything we've seen is corrupt and crooked and wrong on its face.

Refusing to record interviews, then writing up the notes weeks or months after the fact, then using those notes as a basis for perjury charges? That's obviously wrong. It's unquestionably bullshit, regardless of who's doing it, to whom, or why. No sane, honest person can possibly disagree with that.

But everything Mueller has done, everything the Dems have done, everything the MSM is doing, falls into that category.

And yet we have to listen over and over and effing OVER about how "complicated" it is. IT IS NOT!

And the part about us living like mushrooms, is equally maddening. And it's not how a free society is supposed to operate. We as citizens - who are PAYING THE SALARIES AND LAVISH LIFETIME BENEFITS OF ALL THE ASSHOLES INVOLVED IN THIS MADNESS - should not have to play guessing games like the Kremlinologists of days past to guess what will happen next, or who's on whose side.

I'm sorry. It's all crap, and it all needs to end.

James D: i see your point--- once again. where i'm coming from re the situation we face, IN ITS ENTIRETY, is very complex. and we're all jammed up and hamstrung over trying to set ourselves free from it.

i have oftened sat back and judged all of the misdeeds, treason, theft, graft, hypocrisy, hubris, criminality, sedition and all the rest that i don't have time to name, as being so much--as you say-- crap.

further, i've said it all just needs to end. and that it isn't complicated in the least.

this Leviathan has been built over many, many decades--- and it will take at least one to dismantle it, punish the perpetrators of this leap in overt tyranny, and reorganize our Republic around the Constitution (which is no small feat in itself).

i don't dispute your take. i hold the same view--- and more.

On Trump's point, regarding the reported "wiping" and re-issuing of Page and Strzok's phones--WTH? Meuller's team suddenly felt the need to economize and couldn't afford new phones for the new people? Really?

Forgot to add: my understanding of what complexity means doesn't include "overthinking something", "paralysis by analysis", or other deterrents to action.

So--- i'm active in two fights: schools and voting.
If i get it wrong, then i course correct and recruit allies and enlist resources along the way.

Sounds simple--- but it gets complicated along the way because people are people. that in itself is front lines complexity.

Account Deleted

I agree with James D. as well.

But there's more to it.

MissMarple2

I also agree that this shouldn't be so complex, and the reason that it is is because of the FBI classifying things and withholding information.

It sort of goes back to that meeting with Schumer and Pelosi that President Trump had last week. They wanted negotiations to go on away from the cameras. Why?

Why shouldn't those negotiations go on in public? Why shouldn't we know that they won't vote for The Wall unless our side gives in to something else? Or why not know that no matter what the democrats are going to keep the borders open? Isn't that OUR business?

I am outraged that the FBI has been using these tactics like the 302's. I had no idea that in this day and age they don't record interviews! How is that even legal? They could make up anything they want on those reports and how could you prove differently? That is right out of the KGB!

The entire culture at Justice and the FBI needs to be changed. I don't think this is hard to understand. My liberal daughter didn't know about these things and SHE could see how unscrupulous people could make up crimes.

....WILL NEVER BE PROVEN AND ARE LIKELY FALSE.” Thank you to Michael Isikoff, Yahoo, for honesty. What this means is that the FISA WARRANTS and the whole Russian Witch Hunt is a Fraud and a Hoax which should be ended immediately. Also, it was paid for by Crooked Hillary & DNC!

And that's what they're counting on, henry.

i was crushed by it in 1995 in higher education. it was brutal. it cost me my health, my financial security, and my good name. they "took" everything.

and from that micro-scale experience--- in comparison to what is being perped against POTUS--- i fully get it because i got it first-hand.

they were counting on me just going away. and i physically did leave. but not before i planted about 10,000 young people who are "out there" continuing what we started. and some of them have been casualties as i was. now, we're rejoining across the country-- doing what we can in a different manifestation.

small world... I hit the ejector seat from higher ed in 1995 too. I'm better suited to fight in the private sector. However, a suicide plan is not sane nor called for. (Whether you are Flynn or a nobody like me). Ahead is a pendulum swing on regulation of "high tech" which will be cheered by all sides. Note that Steyer's brother is leading the charge on gov't imposed "data privacy." He is working with another finance guy, Roger McNamee (my next door neighbor in college). They are using unease with Facebook et al to drive home brutal levels of authoritarian control. MAGA types will cheer them on. Read their work as posted by rse, it is all about controlling speech and allowable thought. Given how bad the "deregulation" by safe harbor Sessions & Rosenstein put out the last two years, I do not expect anything good. Hell with the ledge, Galt is looking good.

KK’s @ 5:56 was the highest ranked news story on memeorandum.com last night. The original article was from the WAPO. My first impression is that the Deep State fed their talking points to the Journolist members to preemptively spin the outcome of the Flynn hearing today. They will blame any outcome of the Mueller SC where Trump or one of his allies do not get indicted on Russian propaganda trolls.
