You Keep Using Those Words …

… I do not think they mean what you think they mean.

Perjury. Extortion. Reasonable Belief. Harassment. These are words with well defined meanings in law. Regardless of the apparent likeness, the Cabin Boy™ is not Humpty Dumpty, and he cannot bend these words to fit his imagination. He can rant on Twitter and his blog all he wants. It won’t change the law, and it won’t change the facts.

While I will still probably take note of Schmalfeldt’s nonsense and offer occasional corrections, the Gentle Reader should understand that my real engagement with the issues relating to the Cabin Boy’s™ behavior has been and still is with the appropriate authorities. I’m not in a position to say any more than that for now. The Gentle Reader may draw his own conclusions about things based on what has and has not happened.

Meanwhile, I’ve had enough of the Cabin Boy for today, and there’s still spring cleaning that needs to be done around stately Hoge Manor.

  1. Boy, a thousand posts! That is some PRO-digious output!

    Mr. Hoge, your dedication is obviously tremendous, and anyone can see that you have earned a most deserved day off from blogging.

    But when you return, I would love to hear your trick for forcing the Cabin Boy to keep track of every single post you make. It must be something you’re doing, because it is crystal clear that the Cabin Boy is not obsessed at all, nosiree, he’s just as average as Nebraska.

  2. I beg to differ. He can bend the words to fit his imagination.

    What he can’t do is bend reality to fit his imagination, nor can he get the rest of use to agree to do so.

    Poor, pitiful Bill…the saddest of the Schmalfeldt clan.

  3. CB is apparently relying on some rather risky legal advice from a paralegal or other similar individual who has not and probably will ever be able to face the rigors of a state bar examination. Like another well known paralegal, he has learned to bend the law to fit his own imagination, but simply cannot get his case to stand on all four legs.
    CB’s morbid fascination with Mssrs. Hoge, Walker, McCain and others is no more than pathological. He needs immediate institutionalization before he escalates into dangerous violence.

  4. Psycopaths – how do you spot one?


    “At heart, Hare’s test is simple: a list of 20 criteria, each given a score of 0 (if it doesn’t apply to the person), 1 (if it partially applies) or 2 (if it fully applies). The list includes: glibness and superficial charm, grandiose sense of self-worth, cunning/manipulative, pathological lying, emotional shallowness, callousness and lack of empathy, a tendency to boredom, impulsivity, criminal versatility, behavioural problems in early life, juvenile delinquency, and promiscuous sexual behaviour. A pure, prototypical psychopath would score 40. A score of 30 or more qualifies for a diagnosis of psychopathy. Hare says: “A friend of mine, a psychiatrist, once said: ‘Bob, when I meet someone who scores 35 or 36, I know these people really are different.’ The ones we consider to be alien are the ones at the upper end.””
