God is with us

The hand wringers are in a lather about "torture" again and the gleeful idiots at Addicting Info are touting a NYTimes editorial "calling for the investigation and indictment of the Bush Administration for war crimes." But someone needs to tell these guys it's not so easy - first you have to have the investigation and then you might or might not indict someone.

You might think the editors at the NYTimes would be able to figure this out by reading their own paper (screwed up though it is) that, just today, ran a story about the the US Justice Dept. DROPPING charges of civil rights violations by a fellow named George Zimmerman who shot and killed Trayvon Martin for wearing a hoodie (or something like that).


So you see, investigation first, indictment later.

Not that these investigations are without merit - as Eric Holder pointed out as he was dropping the ball:
“It shook an entire community, drew the attention of millions across the nation, and sparked a painful but necessary dialogue throughout the country."
In that spirit I look forward to the Justice Departments investigation of Mayor Rahm Emanuel for prisoner abuse at Chicago's own "black sight" known as Homan Square. I'm sure the New York Times will be all over this story - probably have a team of reporters jumping on the United flight out of LGA right now. I mean, if you can soil your diaper over water boarding a scumbag like KSM imagine how bonkers you'll be over the mistreatment of the NATO Three.

Taking Homan Square mainstream

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

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

A Apolitical Blues

Well my telephone was ringing, and they told me it was chairman Mao. You got to tell him anything 'cause I just don't want to talk to him now. According to the brilliant troubadour Lowell George the Apolitical Blues are " the meanest blues of all" and who am I to disagree with this soul man now after all these years of living by his maxim.  I first heard the song bursting from the 1972 vinyl of Little Feat's Alt-Rock-Country masterpiece "Sailin' Shoes" in the second story bedroom of my friend John's older brother Edie who, being about 3 years our senior, was instructing us on the importance of good music. This was circa 1975 and a formative time for my musical taste and overall aesthetic which, for better or worse, infuses every aspect of my existence including the KOTCB blog so a debt is owed this unforgettable "older brother" now that  he has shuffled off this mortal coil  and left us with smoky memories.
