My Posse’s on Broadway

I’ve started my assessment of what will be needed for our planned rennovation at our Broadway location this coming November.  We will be replacing 214 geothermal heat pumps throughout the building, a make-up air unit replacement on the roof, doing a complete room renno from subfloor up, new carpet, vinyl, furniture, entertainment system — the works.  There’s a science to it — to carry it off while still remaining open for business.  This property was built in 2003, and because of its location is the place to go when you come to Seattle for medical treatment.  It’s a completely different type of guest that comes to our Broadway property.  It’s also about six blocks from the CHOP — if you remember that.  A socialist nest of … socialists.  College students.  Community college students — so basically,  the under-achievers and other misfits.  It used to be the gay mecca but most of them took their money moved out of Capital Hill several years ago.

But the area is starting to pick up, what with light rail running from Tacoma to Lynnwood, and passing right down Broadway.  Old, buildings are making way for the new condos and multi-use shops and businesses that are being constructed.  This is going to be up-and-coming, and capitalism is taking the place back.

It gives me a heavy boner just thinking about it.

But enough about my shit.  Let’s talk the News.  Go see my Facecrack page if you want to hear about my bullshit.

Headlines That Caught My Eye This Morning

Item 1:  The Price of Fraud: $350 million.

Maybe I’m stupid, but I have always been of the opinion that once a person’s personal wealth  reaches that billion-dollar mark, they’ve won the game of life, and anything above that amount should just go back into circulation and pay down the national.  The “need” to acquire more wealth above and beyond that should be considered signs of a mental illness, and treated accordingly.

Frankly, I think a million bucks is plenty — for me.  I’ve never been one looking for a champaigne lifestyle.  I’m quite happy living on a beer budget.  I live comfortable, not pampered.

Item 2:  Georgia hearing over efforts to disqualify District Attorney Fani Willis concludes

This is like the original People’s Court, with Judge Wapner!

While this exposes the private lives of two prosecutors, and creates a soap-opera-like story of travel, romance, and back-stabbing.

We learn that Fani Willis keeps somewhere in the neighborhood of $15k in cash in a safe in her home.  The last I heard, there was no law that limits the amount of cash you can have in your possession.  But if you are making purchases in excess of $10k, then you probably should get a receipt, because the IRS would want to know.

It’s really nobody’s business the ifs and the whys that anyone would have cash in a safe at home.  It is also nobody’s business when it comes to someone’s personal relationships, or who paid for what, and if they have proof.

The defendant’s theory is that Willis hired Nathan Wade to manage the case and that through their romantic relationship, they could enjoy the fruits of the goverment contract to go on lavish trips and cruises as long as they prosecuted this crime.

There is a lot of accusation, and almost zero proof.  There was a relationship — nobody is disputing that.  What is in dispute is when it started, and I guess, when or whether it ended.  That’s where the soap opera part comes in.  An ex-friend of Willis with a grudge insists that the relationship “started in Las Vegas in 2019 and continues to this day.”

Willis responds in her testimony like, “Bitch!  I dumped your nasty ass in 2020, whatcha know about me now you jeolous bitch.”  Okay, she didn’t quite say it that way, but if you translate… LOL.

Both Willis and Wade dispute the ex-friend’s timeline.  While they met in Las Vegas in 2019, and worked together, they didn’t start their relationship until 2021 and it only lasted until 2022.  It really has no bearing on any of these cases, and certainly not in the theory the defense is promoting.

As Fani Willis (really) says, “You’re confused. You think I’m on trial. These people are on trial for trying to steal an election in 2020. I’m not on trial. No matter how hard you try to put me on trial.”

This part is true.  This is just a side show, and at the end of the day the judge will rule against the defense.  But it does have one damaging effect which was the TRUE intent of the defense attorney:

She succeeded in poisoning the jury pool to some extent.  But I suspect it will backfire on the defense in the long run.

Item 3:  Death of Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny confirmed by his representatives

The fact that he lasted three or four months without “dropping dead” was an amazing feat.

Did Putin kill him?  Does a chicken have lips?  Is a pig pork?  Was Geronimo an indian?  Four times YES.

Putin arrested him with the intention of killing him.  He had tried and failed a couple of times, and it came back on him.  This time, he had to do it over time, with as much pain and humiliation as could be administered without being obvious to the world.  But when Nalvalny was transfered to the Wolf camp up past the Arctic Circle, it was pretty much a signal that Putin intended this to be Navalny’s last stop and that he would die there.  It was only a matter of time.

Item 4:  Witness Told Feds She Was Paid for Sex Parties With Matt Gaetz

I don’t know if this is old news or new news.  Or if this is just new proof of old news.  I’m going to apply the same exact filter I use for Rashida Harbi Tlaib and others in the House that seem to run counter of the opinions of most people in the country:

These people, foul and disgusting as you might believe them to be, are the elected representatives of the district in which they come from.

They represent the people from where they come from.  This is the FACE of the people who sent them.

Matt Gates represents the interests of his district.  In Floriduh.

Item 5:  Even DeSantis Thinks Florida Book Removals Have Gone Too Far

Speaking of Floriduh…

Governor Ron DeShort-legs finds himself back in Floriduh, waking up after a year-long dream of trying to escape the state to become President of these “United” States.

It’s like he’s now living in the model home that he built in his plan to export it all to the other 49 unwilling states, and he doesn’t like much of what he sees.

Item 6:  Blaxit: Tired of Racism, Black Americans Try Life in Africa

Where they will live in gated communities away from the darker, purer African.  It’s not so much ‘race’ than it is culture.  We tend to associate our differences as being racial, when it is really all about culture clash.

Item 7:  Top Canadian surgeon unwittingly reveals truth about sex-change ops

I don’t know where people got the idea that you could just to to a surgeon and make major physical changes to your body as if it were taking your car to the shop to make a few performance modifications.  This ain’t something as easy as snipping here and tucking there, this takes a lot of time and planning, and hoping that you can get most of it right.

Gender dysphoria is a real thing, closely related to physical dysphoria — that many of us have.  How many guys secretly wish they had a bigger genital?  Or could grow a beard?  Wish they were taller?  There are surgeries that can attempt to do all that.  The key word being attempt.  It doesn’t mean the end result will be a success, or without complications.

Item 8:  In what month are you most likely to die?

The fact that I wake up in the morning surprised that I am still here just goes to show how badly I can predict my own date of death.

But statistically, a person has a greater chance of dying in the month of January.


What In The Hell Did I Just Watch?

Mayor of Kingstown – Paramount +

Kingstown, Michigan, is a fictional company town where the business is incarceration. The McLusky family have been keeping the peace in Kingstown for decades, acting as the mediators between the street gangs, prisoners, guards, and cops. Tackling themes of systemic racism, corruption, and inequality, the series provides a stark look at their attempt to bring order and justice to a town that has neither.
