I’m not sure whether this is the result of poor reading comprehension, hallucination, or Schmalfeldt just making things up as he goes along—(Yeah, I know. Embrace the power.)
That tweet is timestamped two minutes after the Cabin Boy™ checked into Hogewash! just after midnight, so it’s clearly a reaction to today’s TKPOTD. He seems to believe that my going after Brett Kimberlin for the debt he owes as a result of sanctions being award because of his frivolous lawfare against me shows that I’m having “difficult financial times.” As can be seen from the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals Order, the principal amount is $600. Now, that may seem like big money to Bill Schmalfeldt, but it’s less than a day’s billing for a very senior engineer filling a GS-15 equivalent position. Collecting the debt myself would be more trouble than it’s worth. That’s why I’ve hired a lawyer whose fees will probably exceed the value of the debt.
OK, if I’m not in it for the money, why bother?
I view doing what I can to put an end to The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s lawfare against the First Amendment rights of his perceived enemies as a matter of … and I’m not using these words in the sense they have been recently misappropriated … social justice. A just society should not permit someone to be a serial abuser of others using its legal system.
The one thing that the carpetbagging Cabin Boy™ gets correct in his tweet is that money grubbing lawfare does not become a Southern gentlemen. Ironically, both he and TDPK are from the midwest, few people would mistake either for a gentleman, and both have flooded the courts with frivolous lawsuits. It may be that both have made serious mistakes by suing a Southern gentleman.
Lawsuits “for the rest of their lives” won’t be without costs.
Murum aries attigit.
UPDATE—This popped up in my Twitter Notifications a few minutes age, three minutes after the Cabin Boy™ connected to Hogewash!—Ummm, no. I’m taking a coffee break. If I were dancing, I’d spill my coffee. It must be someone else who’s hoofing it.
