Was I Wrong About the Timeline?

Casey Serin says he's now back in the U.S., which would mean my guess that he would miss the July 5 deadline was wrong. And I have to say, I really do hope I'm wrong on this one. It would be good news that Casey Serin is back on U.S. soil, within the grasp of law enforcement, and more importantly, within the grasp of his family.

I posted yesterday about Casey Serin's plans to hustle his way around the globe. And I still stand by the information as it was relayed. There were always going to be two problems with posting that info....first and foremost, anything that originates from Casey Serin is suspect. We've seen him lie, cheat, and steal for the past ten months, even when it directly impacts his own family.

The second issue stemmed from the timing. I knew it was coming out on the cusp...but on the cusp of what was the question. The whole scenario was definitely at a crossroads. In my mind, it was worth publishing in the event that he had decided to persue his harebrained scheme of a worldwide media tour.

I'd rather be wrong about a timeline than read the latest about Casey Serin posting from Japan or Indonesia, lining up new pigeons along the way. And for the record, Casey missing the July 5 deadline was my guess, no one else's.

I can't imagine that, if Casey Serin is indeed home, that it will be a very happy homecoming. The family has to be absolutely livid, his wife exponentially more so. On the other hand, Mark Villasenor is probably dancing with glee.

Will Casey Serin actually meet a deadline and appear in Superior Court to answer Mark's charges? Oh, god, I hope so. Casey seems physically incapable of telling the truth, so if Mark Villasenor is able to provide the court with the documentation that proves Casey Serin's multiple frauds and continued criminal enterprises, it will be an Independence Day of a whole new shade.

I've got to be in the office early today, as a whole slew of meetings and conference calls await. It's my own fault that I let my looser W-2 job get in the way of important blogging. But Rob Dawg says he's got a bombshell to drop today, so the week should start off with a bang.

Please note Serin's weaselly phrasing -- "back in the U.S.". Knowing him, that probably means he flew to Hawaii for another month long vay-cay. :-Þ

Assuming that he meant "California" rather than Hawaii or Alaska, he may be genuinely terrified of Mark's legal action and the potential gears it starts turning... although you wouldn't have guessed it from his talkcast, where he sounded positively chipper (or manic).

@Benoit

Viable. Possibility of "dealing with this mess" from Hawaii rather than California?

Nice, short post from him, for once, I have to say.

Who know. Caseyworld is such a shadow puppet zone, there's no way to know what the hell is really going on.

BelowTheCrowd said...

Sprezzie,

Agreed.

I scanned EN last night and was amazed at the incredibly low signal-to-noise ratio. Mostly a lot of bravado about all the things that WILL happen, and all the secrets people know that they can't tell us.

Wish somebody would put together a news-only site that only included info when there actually is some, not endless speculation and "foreshadowing."

For now, I'm basically checking Caseypedia and hoping that somebody else updates it on a relatively regular basis. So long as EN remains the primary mode of communication, I can't be bothered.

RacerX said...

You are so stupid.

There is no "deadline".

Casey doesnt have to "answer" anything.

Go look up 'ex parte' if you dont know what it means. Then leave your house and do something productive.

Sprezzatura said...

It's slow as hell at work this week, so I've been reading EN to help pass the time. It's a cesspool, but on an upbeat note, I found that another real-life friend is posting there too. The friend had put some personal details into a post -- enough for me to recognize the story, send an IM, and get confirmation.

We're getting together tomorrow at a picnic / concert / fireworks display and we'll have plenty to talk about. :)

I'm wondering if the "back in the usa" blog fart was just a diversion while he hightails it somewhere else.

T said...

Christ Almighty, I'm NEVER gonna get caught up of @ EN! WTF?

Sprezzatura said...

*sigh*

One of the biggest problems with this whole mess is that Rob Dawg is a very flawed vessel for being such a key information point.

You're a dumb ass! There is no suit. Why do you want to go so out of your way to punish this guy? You better hope that no one ever wantgs tp punish you!

Get a fucken life! IAFF is entertaining period. You don't make the rules and your not the poilce.

BelowTheCrowd said...

IAFF stopped being entertaining about a month ago. The only real entertainment was the hating on Casey. With the current levels of moderation, why even bother?

It's not like he ever says anything interesting himself.

Schnapps said...

Oh, Aspeth. It seems you have a troll infestation.

Do you suppose Raid will work as well on them as it did on my wasps?

@Schnapps
Noticed in a thread on EN that you have a mosquito problem and The Dude suggested the following:

Get a CO2 skeeter gitter....they work. Runs on propane and produces CO2. The gas attracts the skeeters and the device traps them. A $300 unit will keep a min. 1/2 ac clear.

Know what he's talking about??

BTW, I LOLed at the Raid reference; that used to be one of my online nicknames. ;)

Khatie said...

Looks like the teenagers have been loosed on Marty's dime again.

Or maybe Casey's out for a lark.

I highly recommend 'disemvowelling' -- a troll control method invented by Teresa Nielsen Hayden at "Making Light" here.

It turns the annoying little turds into objects of pleasant fun-- and saves a lot of time cleaning the smut off the shoes if you're tempted, as I often am, to try and step on them.

Thank you for that, Sprezzatura. I've followed the Casey story since I found it on the Housing Bubble back in October of last year. I had seen Robert Cote's comments there long before-- and looked at his blog a couple of times, but since I would throw myself repeatedly against the barbed wire at the border until I either escaped or opened an artery if his 'exurban' utopia ever came to pass I find it hard to stomach going there for the story. I'm also more than a little put off by Lost Mittens (wonderful nic, that!) and Nigel and his 'outings' absolutely turn my stomach.

Chloe, since you've done such a magnificent job so far of summarizing the story I think I'll try to wean myself of my addiction and just come here for the precis!

Ack!!! I mean ASPETH of course! Please forgive... I'm of an older generation and have no idea who Chloe Sevigny is...

That's OK. Most people have no idea who Chloe Sevigny is.

Aspeth said...

Trolls are deleted. Sorry, T, that meant your quote as well. I've said all along, debate and discussion are one thing, but juvenile vulgarity gets the plug pulled.

But, you know, since all of Marty Stewart's virtual assistants troll with the Alexa toolbar, it seems my Alexa rank will get popped through the roof. Suddenly, I'll have a bizarrely inflated Alexa rank as well.

T said...

Sorry, T, that meant your quote as well.

*sigh*

Ok, I guess I'll let it slide... this time. :)

Aspeth said...

hehe...I'm sure you've forgiven me for worse, T.

BelowTheCrowd said...

Looks like you weren't entirely wrong. Casey may be "back in the USA," but as of today he claims to be blogging from Seattle.

Not sure what's going on. It sounds like he doesn't have anyplace to go. Seattle may have been someplace he figured he could crash for a few days.

I think we should let "Tony Soprano" know.

Heh heh heh!

Fitting that CS would pick a city where a blogger named 'Tony Soprano' lives!

Now I'm just waiting for IAFF to fade to black, er white, with HTML commented out, or something . . .

15minutesplus said...

Oh wait! That already happened!

NotAnOptimist said...

I also happen to be in the Seattle area. Hm... I was gonna stay late and catch up on work, but I'm wondering now if I should take my trusty baseball bat and take a walk around a few touristy spots... on the off-chance that I spot the nearly-extinct Kangatard.

Sprezzatura said...

I have to hit the road to go pick up The Spouse, then am going to be more or less offline for the next 6 hours at a picnic & concert.

Sounds like I am going to miss a really interesting Hatercast.

Aspeth said...

BTC...as far as being only partially wrong, it just goes to show that KC can't even tell the whole truth to the Inner Circle.

Optimist...Or you could recreate the Mayberry RFD scene where the gas station guy runs around screaming "Citizens arrayest! Citizens arrayest!"

I'm coming late to this party, but LossMitPro presented a very interesting suggestion about why Casey is coming home the long way. Essentially, he suggests that the trip to Australia is to allow him to go somewhere and set up off-shore banking to store funds. Then he can return home, and cry "broke" to the creditors and the IRS.
