He makes that point by the end of the essay.

Lawsplainer: IT'S NOT RICO, DAMMIT is a distilled post from lots of RICO screaming.

But why is this bullshit?

No one has had the time to put together any kind of RICO case. RICO cases are time consuming. Federal cases are time consuming. The Fed's have all the time and resources they need to build airtight cases. They don't do shit until they have tied up all the loose ends. Investigations are still in the preliminary phase at the moment. When they start filing charges it's going to come fast and furious at as many people as they can get in the first sweep.

Might it someday be RICO? Maybe?

This investigation isn't even a baby yet, still in the womb.

The author is a bullshitter.

Generally anything that mentions RICO is bullshit.

My wife is friends with a founder of Dark Horse Comics.

He's now been a producer in the Hollywood super hero complex for for something like a decade. I don't think he has had anything to do with comics for a long time.

The A-10 will be replaced because there is money to be made. I'm sure they'll have to scrap the new program at least once to maximize profits.

I've already dropped Facebook and Apple. If everyone left with me than there would be almost no pain caused by leaving Microsoft, same with Alphabet. I'd miss Amazon, no one aggregates demand the way they do but I guess Baidu would move in

His basement is ridiculous. Filled to the brim with family shit, hardly any room to move around and he's trying to hide all these fucking speakers from his wife who thinks he just bought one pair. Those things aren't tiny.

If you even vaguely know his wife than you know that she is deathly afraid of rodents. If you mention the words basement or ally, she brings up mice and rats. Jeff told her that he thinks they have mice to keep her from poking around down there. Now he's paying for a monthly exterminator service to kill all these "mice". It's some sitcom shit.

There were some other cone speakers sitting around half dismantled that he thought were pretty hot shit but I can't remember what they were.

Had a record sales day at the coffee shop on Sunday. I have a problem where I minimize good sales in my head by saying something along the lines of "well, sakes were only good because that lady came in and bought all the pastries or sakes were only good because the graduation happened down the street." It really doesn't matter why sales were good, shut the fuck up and enjoy it.

Sales to regulars are the best sales all the same.

I built a bookcase out of scrap wood for my daughter, it turned out great. Buying furniture is fine but building something fit exactly in a space is awesome. I let her pick colors to paint it so she now has a safety orange and baby blue bookcase.

At end of 4 sunny 70 degree days in a row. I can't remember the last time we had two 70 degree days in a row. It's lifting my spirits

Through record sounds great.

What neighborhood are you going to be in?
