"Falun Gong-affiliated MAGA outlet" was not a phrase I ever expected to see.

Yeah that's usually Moonie turf.

For a second I thought it was the Trump Georgia trial and was "wait a loving murder!?"

Brian Steel, the lawyer who was held in contempt, handled this extremely smartly. When the judge sentenced him to jail, his response was to ask to be placed with his client so that they might continue preparing for the trial.

Dude's legit, and just made a huge name for himself.

Oh and, apparently, this judge has pulled dumb poo poo in the past when he declared a mistrial so he wouldn't miss his vacation:

The legal system was a mistake, time to go back to chthonic furies hounding oathbreakers as Chronus intended.

Hunter now has the opportunity to do the funniest thing possible and appeal to SCOTUS under the Bruen doctrine.

Sometimes I wonder what would happen if we pulled up stakes and left the entire region. We don’t need the oil and gas or anything else.

You end up with the Business Plot but probably no Smedley this time around.

Yeah. And I know you can't really get fixed-rate mortgages any more so more millennials are stuck with variable-rate, so there's a potential for more to lose those houses at some point.

???

I'm a millennial closing on my first house after renting for years and variable rates weren't even an option being offered by the loan vendors I was talking to. It was all 30 year fixed or VA loans for the most part.

Although the one I eventually went with was like 'look, we know you and everyone else is planning to refinance the moment rates go back down, so as long as you make the first seven monthly payments on time we'll give you a one time deal to refinance with us whenever you want in the future with all fees waived, just so you don't jump to someone else.'

This is in the DC market so maybe things are different elsewhere in the country, the housing and rental market is not quite California crazy here but close.
