With update today:

The tabs cover the top of the page. Pulling down on the page does not resolve the issue. The top of the page immediately springs back under the tabs. Further, no search key to use.

Why are all the tabs covering the top of the pages?

For example, on the homepage I cannot see anything above the top of Santos head. All the writing or printing above that is blocked. When I try to pull down the page it keeps the same location. That is, all the printing on the top of the page is under the tabs. Thus I cannot see the title to anything.

Well, I fractured my femur through and now have a steel rod in my leg.

Damn!

Visit # 1 to hospital for sore R knee. ER doc did X-rays an left me in the hallway got me a pain RX. Discharged me home w/o seeing if the brace fitted and w/o checking if I could securely walk. I fell going up concrete and brick stairs going into house. Leg twisted one way and full leg immobilizer the other way and I felt the biggest snap and intolerable pain

Visit # 2 to the ER was via ambulance for admission to an ortho floor. Out of surgery 5 hours now.

So how was your day after Thanksgiving?

Judge Threatens 'Imprisoning' Trump for 'Blatantly' Violating Gag Order

The judge overseeing Donald Trump’s bank fraud trial threatened to throw the former president in jail—and hit him with punishing fines—for “blatantly” violating a gag order by refusing to delete a website post attacking court staff.

Justice Arthur F. Engoron, striking a serious tone, began Friday at trial by laying out the high stakes and demanding that Trump’s lawyers explain themselves.

...

But now, Trump appears to be facing a very real threat of spending time in jail if his antics continue.

Defense lawyer Christopher Kise immediately apologized for Trump’s behavior, blaming the 2024 Republican presidential candidate’s bloated “campaign machinery” for simply forgetting to remove a webpage that mirrored the Truth Social post Trump had already deleted.

I thought this is what TFG might do -- link to another site which had the original post about the Judge's law clerk and Sen. Schumer still posted. Frankly, I don't think it was a error by "campaign machinery." I believe Trump thought he could get away with it and, if he did not and he was sanctioned, well, that might aid his campaign treasure chest.

So why no nice button on the top that the only thing it links is your posts and...

...it turns yellow when someone replies? Why make using the DU far, far more confusing?

Why all the scattering, combining and uncombining?

This is really awful to the nth degree. I thought I would not like the new set up. I find it beyond dislike. It's horrible.

Not sure if I will continue here or not. I really, really dislike this new version.

The DC Gag Order re Trump -- IMO the Wording is a f/n mega big deal

The Court's use of the words "sua sponte" means that the court can move on a violation of its order WITHOUT a motion before the Court. The phrase has been reported in several posts on the DU, so I take that this is a correct statement.

sua sponte

Latin for "of one's own accord; voluntarily." Used to indicate that a court has taken notice of an issue on its own motion without prompting or suggestion from either party.

You know TFG cannot control himself and he will rage out verbally or post something.

Way to go, Judge!!!!!

So let's think about this...what assets does TFG now have control over?

What all do the Trump businesses own and control? This is a NY state case, but their fingers are squarely in assets outside of NY State, like MAL and the golf course in Scotland. There is a receiver in charge and, if anything like a BK, he/she has the responsibility of using the assets for those who are owed money -- in this case because of the fraud committed by the Trump businesses.

So whaddabout:

The airplane? His cars? Use of MAL? Support for Melania? Campaign monies? Etc., etc. A receiver is now in control. I am LMAO...can you imagine TFG having to ask to use his airplane to campaign? I wanna see him in a middle seat on Southwest with a screaming baby next to him with TFG holding a bag of chips and a Diet Coke in a plastic glass and with someone's carry-on intruding on the space for his feet.

This could get really, really interesting!

Where are you and how is Hilary treating you?

I'm between Torrance and San Pedro in LA County. Cleared off all of the wicker furniture and pillows on the porch, took in front door decor and brought in anything light, secured the trash cans. Took down my Scottish Terrier house flag and the flag pole.

No winds...yet...rain, just sprinkling right now.
