Two days, nineteen hours, six minutes and thirty-one seconds, by our clock. A mere bag-of-shells shutdown-wise John Boehner and the Republicans of the last decade shut down the government for two days in their sleep. They had real shutdowns. A few weeks of shutting it down. This was a big yawn...like a hurricane that misses us by a country mile.
Meanwhile, as our new Judges settle into the REGJB, and our president dodges porn-star tryst-tales, how's your New Years Resolutions going?
Are you robed readers still denying continuances and issuing max sentences in the hopes that the word will spread that you are the "New Morphonious" (for those of you born after 1990, Google it) and defendants will plead guilty out of fear. Because that's the mark of a good, tough judge, right? Scaring defendants into pleas.
Meanwhile, our Super-Bowl is set. The Cheaters again, against the Eagles. Guess who we are rooting for? And stay tuned for our, lock-solid, guaranteed pick of the coin flip. We've never missed yet.
From Occupied, and fully funded (for now), America, Fight The Power of President Stephen Miller.
