Casey Tries Again

Fliptard the Wonder Child is testing the waters again. Hardly news to this audience. I've been deliberately slow to put up a top level post because I'm fascinated by his "organic" responses. I'm thinking we may have the first documented internet idiot savant on our hands. Autistic no less. Think about it.

Don't let that "mild" diagnosis fool you. He is still a vicious lying coniving criminal. He is still free plying his antisocial wares.

I started to compromise so certain posts and comments have been removed. Part of the process we’re going through is figuring all this stuff out: policies for blogging, topics to cover and topics to stay away from, tolerances for certain things, etc.

The policy on comments and posts:

Nothing about marriage or too personal or hateful.

I don’t want any more “gray area” on my promises. I’m either keeping them or I’m not. I justify and split hairs too much. Enough said.
----

Enough said? We aren't gong back to any level of Casey tracking here. This is just a periodic check in to see just how little he's changed his spots.

Full detailed tracking of Casey is happening at caseyverse.com
alternatively, shiteweasel.

I see the latest thing is a blowup of one of Casey's photos' showing that they drink San Pellegrino while scribbling all over the expensive electronic whiteboard in their office.

Casey who?

"Oh...okay!
Y'know, the last time I tried that shot, I double-bogied!

FOOOOOORE!!!!"

serinitis said...

I get a Crisp and Cole vibe from Casey's new partner. From purchasing real estate all over the place at record prices to the lamborgini pictures, to Casey's comments about him being deeper in debt than Casey; I suspect his primary business acumen is in getting loans.

I briefly paid attention to The Return Of Buttnugget, but I no longer care. There is nothing new to his story. Please let me know when he's arrested.

Guys:

I like that the little spate of 'us vs them' thinking that popped up between EN and CHC now looks to be oh-vah, so I'd hope that people would drop by both spots for the different flavors of 'net snark...

I'm making this post on my own volition (still not part of any IC (sigh)) so I hope I'm not speaking out of turn, but I believe that they have re-enabled registration -- just gotta give a email address, to keep rampant trolling and spam down...

I do hate exclusivism (that even a word?) but results of the 'must provide email' method speak, and it's been a troll-free zone for a long while. 'Course EN is nice and civil again too, so to borrow a KC phrase: "It's all good" ™

Anyhoo, here's* to keeping informal tabs on the little mop-topped, dirty Fraudster until the 'thor-a-tees get off of their collective duffs and put the boy away, as he so richly deserves.

*[raises virtual beer mug] Cheers!

Legion said...

Screw Casey and the blue boucning ball he rode in on...his 15 mins are up. i couldn't resist the following though after I saw what he was gonna write about

Customer Benefits

Bullets we can put on the book, website, and other pieces. Benefit [selling] is {...} for me?"
Stop or avoid foreclosure

Umm, Casey didn't avoid foreclosure...in fact he has a rather large track record of being foreclosed on.

Save Your Home

Casey couldn't save one, in fact he got kicked out of one that he was RENTING!

What to do if you you [sic] can't save your home

Well what did Casey do? He wrote a blog and ended up losing even more money not to mention his wife.

How to sell your home fast, as-is

Ok Casey and HOW do you have experience with this? You couldn't seel shit...

Save your credit

Like Casey did? Not...he has the lowest score possible.

Avoid (or learn about?) bankruptcy

you haven't even gone there yet Casey though we had been telling you to do it for about a year now. What's next how to avoid being an asshole?

BTW,
Santa Flipper Clause your images of Cho Oyu are gorgeous. If I wasn't so conflicted about entropy/the dollar value (and going somewhere I would be disinterested in returning from) I'd travel there in a f-ing second.

Pleather Murse said...

Something new for Fliptard to turn his attention to ... he will find the mentality comfortingly familiar:

"Dot-com fever stirs sense of déjà vu"

In the first dot-com gold rush, Internet companies did not have to demonstrate to investors that they could make money. Now that once again appears to be true.

Twitter, a San Francisco company that lets users alert friends to what they are doing at any given moment over their mobile phones, recently raised an undisclosed amount of financing. The company is not focused on making money and no one in the company is even working on how to do so, said its co-founder and creative director, Biz Stone.

...

O'Kelley, the Right Media co-founder, who is starting another company, said other entrepreneurs had begun to think that the financing game was best played by avoiding actual revenue, since that only limits the imagination of investors.

Dawg,

Please don't insult autistic people. Casey is a far too warped and criminally motivated person to be considered anywhere on the spectrum. He's a retard, yes, but not autistic.

Akubi said...

@TK,
Casey is far too non-details oriented and extroverted to be remotely autistic.

In other news Dick Cheney sucks!

BJ said...

@Akubi

In other news Dick Cheney sucks!

I don't know if he does. I don't know if Dick Cheney sucks.. or blows.. does it missionary (missionary on top), inverted missionary.

What I do know is that Dick Cheney doesn't shoot straight. Don't want to be anywhere around him when he is handling his gun.. or anyone else's for that matter...

I'm thinking we may have the first documented internet idiot savant on our hands.

An idiot savant is someone who, while otherwise not totally with it, has one incredibly focussed skill they can do exceedingly well, such as tell you what day it is on any given date between 1750 and 2038, or memorize the contents of telephone directories.

What does Casey bring to the table here?

Arthur Wankspittle said...

What does Casey bring to the table here?
The unerring ability to be wrong? We've already covered it on here. Sell whatever he buys, short whatever he invests in, etc. etc. I just haven't got Casey's knack of doing it through a corporation with money borrowed off someone else.

TK said...

Actually Casey's ability to do the complete opposite of what ordinary people do to make gobs of money is uncanny. If there were a way to "Short" writing an e-book, I'd do it right now. But there are obviously more insidious things afoot. Clearly whoever Casey has surrounded himself with in his insular new world has drunk the guru kool-aid as well, and perhaps to a greater extent than he. This is a dangerous development and I can't help but think might lead to a much larger, much more illegal 'operation' than what he attempted to pull off previously. In my estimation, in the next few weeks, in their quest to create some content for "the book", they will try to pull some scheme or other that won't go the way they expected. After all, Casey is allergic to money.

BTW That stripped house was probably one of Damion's.

sid_finster said...

My trolls,

Is it not taught to us that history repeats itself twice? The first time as tragedy, the second time as farce.

With that in mind, what does Young Casey have to offer, other than a repeat of past trainwrecks and failures on a smaller scale?

Arthur Wankspittle said...

I think we need to know what Damion Lupo's interest is here. It is curious to me that he appears to have hired Casey to do a "details" job (e.g. write book, keep blog going, marketing) when we all know he is incapable of organising himself to do such a thing.

Rob Dawg said...

No doubt Casey will find newer more spectacular ways to fail. We are long past farce at this point. All we can do is watch carefully until he slips again and reveals the nature of his next crime. He failed being a "big ideas guy" so he's working for one and handling the details? There's a winning combination.

Ooops, where they not supposed to sit still and take the $ decline like a man? This must be just some mistake, somebody misplaced a column. I am sure they would NEVER put their own financial benefit above ours.

Northern Renter said...

You guys aren't giving Casey enough credit. You're making a mountain out of a mohel, 'cause he can snip away your foreclosure problem and leave you standing proud and erect.

Best wishes,

Peripheral Visionary said...

I'm just amused at the prospect of yet another person who thinks that by attaching themselves to Casey they can actually benefit rather than get sucked into the vortex of destruction. Damion Lupo may have made and lost a lot of money as a "maverick investor", but I don't think he fully understands just how much he has to lo(o)se from his connection with Casey.

And the Lamborghinis absolutely reek of "fake it until you make it" . . . that's a story we've heard before, and whose ending is eminently predictable.

I thought about Flipper yesterday.

Arthur Wankspittle said...

I think that sums Casey up in one. To most people the opposite of keeping a promise is not keeping a promise, to Casey it's a grey area.

Arthur Wankspittle said...

I've just re-read my own post. How the hell did Casey ever write any code?
IF condition THEN probably, but maybe

Rob Dawg said...

Is there ANY promise Casey has kept?

Arthur, you've reveal exactly why Casey doesn't program anymore even using fuzzy logic.

Legion said...

This over at the housing bubble blog, I couldn't resist.

“Don Casselman of St. Cloud started missing mortgage payments on his home earlier this year, after work injuries and a failed attempt to start a business. When Casselman, saddled with two mortgages, tried to sell it recently, he got no takers. Last month, Minneapolis-based U.S. Bank forced his family to leave.”

“‘They take people who are not in the best of credit, and they treat us like we’re millionaires — then they try to rip every dollar that you can make from your pocket, and they try to draw blood,’ said Casselman, who couldn’t persuade lenders to refinance his adjustable-rate loans when the $974 monthly payment was about to double. ‘They try to keep a poor man poor.’”



I wonder if this schmuck didn't THINK he was a millionaire buying two properties? He would have felt like a millionaire if the price of the houses continued to go up, and probably would have boufght some new cars and a big screen plasma. It's poor me assholes like this that make me want to puke. Typical gambler that doesn't listen to anyone when they are on a winning streak but then play the victim when they lose it all. Poor guy..the MAN is trying to keep a poor guy poor. Poor sap...aaa fuck him.

Rob Dawg said...

Legion,
Once you purchase a house you are ENTITLED to that house forever. Didn't you get the memo?

Everyone,
Cato Institute has new expose on the plundering of California roads funds. New transportation post later today.

Akubi said...

@Rob Dawg
Arthur, you've reveal exactly why Casey doesn't program anymore even using fuzzy logic.

What about fuzzy math?

Internet companies with funny names, little revenue and few customers are commanding high prices. And investors, having seemingly forgotten the pain of the first dot-com bust, are displaying symptoms of the disorder known as irrational exuberance.
...
Many of those financial professionals say that this time, everything is different.


BTW, the link is a completely SFW NYT article.

Legion:

"Casselman, who couldn’t persuade lenders to refinance his adjustable-rate loans when the $974 monthly payment was about to double. ‘They try to keep a poor man poor.’”"

WTF? The guy couldn't swing a monthly nut of less than a grand?

Less than two grand?

Jeeze Louise...I know sidewalk windshield cleaners in downtown Bawlmer who make better take home than that.

What did this guy DO for a living?

Kasey said...

Off topic, but you economic people can help.

Read an article about the new housing coming in lower than expected. My question is this. Why is the number of new housing so important? So people aren't building new homes. They can still purchase existing homes, etc. Aren't we eventually going to run out of space to build new housing anyhow. Granted, I know purchases are down as well, but isn't the number of purchase loans more important than people building new homes?

New home construction doesn't necessarily mean expansion and growth. In my particular area I wouldn't want to build in the space that's currently unoccupied. There's no room for expansion and new communities as there really isn't any desire to get further out from everything.

I'm not an economic guru so I could be missing the whole point.

Sac RE Agent said...

Kasey, I'm not an expert, but new housing is a leading indicator of what/where housing is being bought/sold. The population of the US is growing, so there does need to be new housing built. Granted people do not have to live in new housing, but they have to live somewhere.

Historically (i.e. go back further than 2000), new housing was considered a 'move-up' property, meaning that someone that already owned a home was selling that home and moving up into something nicer. Of course, that 'move up' was made possible by someone buying their old house. Since 2000 or so, logic has been thrown to the wayside.

Builders seem to have produced enough of a supply to last us a few years. It is a good thing that they are cutting back.

JohnDiddler said...

Dawg, a week ago i disagreed with your bubble theory for tech stocks. now that NYT weighs in, i am reconsidering... but there is something here many of you may not understand: the winner of a platform war gets a monopoly. microsoft has theirs, and ftc blocks them from using it to gain another. well, google is a platform, as is facebook. that you don't see revenue today is completely by-design. question it, sure. the goal is more ambitious than revenue today. to say the social graph is not worth billions... i disagree. what's the proper valuation? hey, there's a reason buffett doesn't bother with tech stocks.

Rob Dawg said...

Thanks John. Believe it or not I actually don't pull my opinions out of my ass. I consider them and test them and sometimes have to toss them out entirely.

The homebuilders are still massively overbuilding. It is what they do. We have maybe 2 years supply now and will have three before some HBs start going out of business.

The population of the US is growing, so there does need to be new housing built. Granted people do not have to live in new housing, but they have to live somewhere.

It's strange that people are leaving places that have plenty of water (Cleveland, Buffalo, Rochester) and moving to places that have little, if any water (Las Vegas, Phoenix). I am not sure how businesses can stay open or how people can flush their toilets and take showers when there is no water left.

It will be interesting to see if these migration patterns are reversed in the coming decades. If people do go back, I hope they do so before those nice old $15,000 houses rot apart.

That article makes some sense.

b4freedom said...

@ lou minatti:
...or how people can flush their toilets and take showers when there is no water left.


I'll explain how we do it at our house: We collect the urine in one bucket, when it's full, we dump it into the toilet quickly. This causes the poop to get flushed down the toilet. No water is wasted.

On Sundays, each person is allowed one flush using the soapy 5 gallon bathwater that we each took turns using for our weekly bath.

b4freedom said...

I have to agree with Rob Dawg.
Builders build. When the workers get so pissed off at not getting paid that they take a bulldozer and knock down a new house the builder will decide to stop building and declare bankruptcy so that the all of the sub-contractors don't get paid either.

It's a cycle.
