Who gives a damn what people in Iowa think?

The question has to be asked - aside from the musings of IOWAHAWK who gives a damn what people in Iowa think?

I don't.

It's the State that gave us Herbert Hoover* and Henry Wallace* which might well disqualify it's citizens from participating in national elections in a sane republic, but as the Presidential primary season confirms, this republic has lost it's sanity. If memory serves, the good people of Iowa gave us two beauties as winners of their parochial caucuses 4 years ago - On the Republican side they saw fit to promote former Gov. Mike Huckelberry (the Lawrence Welk of Arkansas) and for the Jackass Party they nominated a wet behind the (big) ears freshman U.S. Senator Barack Hussein Osama (the Alfred E. Neuman of politics). Thanks a lot you fine midwestern corn farmers from the 'heartland of America" for launching an entertaining program on Fox News Saturday and the Hope and Change Presidency that has this Nation stuck in neutral (at best) while he tries to figure out how to get "the car" out of "the ditch" that George W. Bush drove it into during his 8 years in the White House.

Am I being to harsh on the Iowans? Was the vote for Hackaboo and Hussein 4 years ago an anomaly. Before you judge me guilty consider this:

1980 the Iowans chose Jimmy Peanut over Ted "the swimmer" K, but they still gave Teddy over 30% of the vote and they chose G.H.W. Bush over the Gipper. 1988 the Iowans gave the nod to Dick Gephardt followed closely by Paul Simon - got that, PAUL SIMON!!! (not the pop singer - the goofy, bow tie wearing, Illinois Senator) and Bob Dole followed closely by smile'n Pat Robertson. Here's an idea - let's disqualify any candidate who wins the Iowa caucus and move on to New Hampshire (more on "the shire" in the near future).

* For you youngsters H Hoover was the original Big Government Republican (a fat Mitt Romney) and H Wallace was a central planning Stalinist who proved to be too left wing for FDR.

Blue Devils and Yellow Cowards

A few weeks ago Duke lost Coach K’s last game at Camron Indoor Stadium to the schools hated rival, North Carolina University, in an epic grudge match. It was an “ unacceptable ” finale for the maniacal ferret-faced competitor who created the 40 year dynastic Duke hoops program with 1,000+ wins and fists full of ACC and NCAA championships but for Tar Heels everywhere it was a day of retribution. Michael  William Krzyzewski, is a red-blooded All-American college basketball coach of Polish and Ukrainian descent who grew up in Chicago’s famous Ukrainian Village which is (or at least was) culturally very reminiscent of the Rus borderlands. That is to say that young S h-shef-ski   grew up as  far away (psychology) from Dixie as is possible while still living within the borders of the USA. That makes him the perfect choice to represent Duke University and the Yankee overachievers who emigrate to Durham for 4 years of education and networking before moving back to non-Southern civilization.

Psycho Killer, qu'est-ce?

I came into this wicked world in the early 1960's and as a result I have born witness to America's 50 Years of Failure which includes the modern age of mass shootings by psychotic men who "go off" on a given day, for no reason at all (except "guns"), and kill scads of innocent bystanders. Back in August of 2019 a KOTCB blog post titled " Reciprocity City " explored a young  gunman  named Patrick Crusius  who drove 9 hours through the west Texas flatlands to shoot up El Paso, TX The KOTCB has commented on many of these shootings, bombings and knifings over the years -  The roots of the Boston Marathon Bombing ,  the Emanuel AME Church shooting ,  Syed Rizvan Farook and his bride Tashfeen Malik ,  Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooting ,  Nick Cruz lovesick Parkland shooting ,  the Iranian, PETA activist, Vegan Bodybuilder, YouTuber's attack on Google  and now this very oddly timed and placed "lone wolf" attack on Walmart shoppers. This list

Mask Off

U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle finally did it - after 14 months of mandatory masking by order of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this capricious and ineffectual edict has been ruled unconstitutional and, it follows, illegal.  Since January 29, 2021 the CDC has prohibited citizens to travel without wearing a mask but the insanity actually started as far back as July 14, 2020 when " CDC calls on Americans to wear masks to prevent COVID-19 spread ." That's 643 days of stupidity folks - it covers the Kenosha Riots, the attempted kidnapping of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the Fake 2020 Election, the 1/6 Save America March and Insurrection, Jo(((K)))e Brandon's phony Inauguration, Trump's 2nd Impeachment, a horrible year of pathetic "leadership" from every single elected official in Washington DC, a war in Eastern Europe - and NOW, at long last, a federal judge in Florida ends the mask tyranny with one simple ruling from her bench.
