Raid on the Sublime Porte


Let me say, without equivocation, that the three pasha's who comprise The Young Turks are the lamest, laziest, most ignorant and stupid news commentators on the Internet - and that's saying something. If you want to torture yourself for 8:50 minutes watch these boorish yabbo's "resolve" the issue of "Gay Marriage" for the nation - cheer-leading RBG's musings about A CASE THAT IS CURRENTLY BEFORE THE SUPREME COURT and that she will, therefore, be asked to rule on (unless she's forced to recuse herself for said musings) and getting the objections and legal justification of Judge Roy Moore ass-backwards (They're not alone in this) and comparing the Judge to a segregationist preventing black children entering the Arkansas schoolhouse doors. Others who are very familiar with segregation did not feel the same way about Judge Moore or his ruling.

So the Supreme Court is currently hearing and reviewing a "watershed case" regarding Same-Sex Marriage on which they are expected to hand down a ruling in June - everyone thinks this will "decide" the issue, like all those other decisive decisions the court has handed down over the past 50 years. But while they're deciding, lower Federal Courts are making picayune rulings on homosexual marriage across the fruited plain and these rulings might, or might not, have legal standing come June 2015. Ruth Bader Ginsburg hopes and thinks SCOTUS will look to their neighbors and children and hand down the "right" decision because we've had about 35 years of progressively fetishizing ring stinging and rug munching so "perceptions have changed." On the other hand, though perceptions have changed, the US Constitution has not, nor have the laws of nature, nor has rules regarding logic and reason so there is every chance that Same-Sex Marriage will NOT be found to be legal on constitutional grounds. If scenario 2 (no constitutional right to gay marriage) is, in fact, the ruling in June then 1. I'm definitely directing my web browser to The Young Turks to watch their heads explode and 2. I'll expect a blanket apology to Judge Moore from every gay married couple in Alabama who will have to rip up their marriage license.

Marriage, as an institution, has taken a beating in the US (and around the world I suppose) over the past 50 years but it is a resilient institution. It is of supreme importance to some and of little or no value to others - unbreakable in many respects but extremely fragile in places you'd least expect. It joins the two sex/life forces together into a union that fulfills natures design and adds to (or detracts from) the individual happiness and security of those joined together. People of the same sex should be able to enter into such a union, but instead of calling it marriage which suggests the joining together of the male and female life force - the Yin and the Yang - we should call it Same Sex Merge and give it the unique status of union it deserves and, philosophically speaking, requires.

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.
