Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The anniversary of the Speedway Bombings is coming up, and Dave Alexander will begin running an exhaustive history of those events beginning on Tuesday, 1 September.

Tune in.

Speaking of anniversaries, yesterday was the second anniversary of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit which he lost in August, 2014. He has appealed the case to the Maryland Court of Special Appeals. I haven’t written much about it in order to avoid educating the midget, but the appeal hasn’t progress beyond the filing of briefs. All I can say for now is that TDPK’s appeal filings are as hallucinatory as the other things of his that I have posted recently.

We Need a Law …


Very quickly after the live on-air shooting yesterday, various politicians and activists started crying that we needed more laws to prevent such crimes.

The last time I checked, Virginia still had a law against murder, and it was still one of the states with a death penalty for that crime. Also, there are multiple laws designed to prevent an insane person from possessing a firearm.

Gun control activists will argue that we haven’t restricted the general availability of guns sufficiently yet for their approach to the problem to work. They’ve been trying for over a century and more that 20,000 laws are on the books. At this point, their sales pitch is beginning to sound like a communist saying that his system works in theory but no one has done it right yet.

Prevarication Du Jour


The Cabin Boy™ thinks he’s home free.NR4OM201508072016ZHe isn’t.

Here are a couple of the several instances of unwanted contact in the past 30 days.CabinBoyEmailsA contact is not for a “legal purpose” just because the Cabin Boy™ wants to ask a question about a third party related to a matter in which I am not a party. Nor is it a “legal purpose” to issue threats based on speculation about the outcome of a situation in which I am nothing but a bystander.
