Houthis gonna end?

The situation in and around the holy land does NOT look good. But hey, no one can control these towel-heads anyway and Barack has done a lot of outreach over the past 6 years so it's hard to blame him, right?
Not everyone is so forgiving. “We’re in a goddamn free fall here,” said James Jeffrey, who served as Obama’s ambassador to Iraq and was a top national security aide in the George W. Bush White House.
Washington DC worldview
Well, JJ was a Bushie before he joined team 0 and he oversaw Iraq - take a look at that country. Mess.  So I'll discount the hype even if the independents take it seriously. Politico's Adam Baron sets everyone straight by explaining What We Get Wrong About Yemen - I love the "We", what frigg'n "We" is he talking about? The "We" running Politico? The "We" inside the beltway that get things wrong? The "We" of "We The People"? Perhaps it is the Royal "We" - He who laments the fact that he's not a king. Nope, it's the Global "We" meaning every member nation of the "international community" - that means you Western powers, Saudi Arabia or Egypt so...
"The truth is far more complex, and the solution right now should be more along the lines of: Just stay out of it."
Not going to happen Mr. Baron. The distance between Riyadh and Sanaa is approximately the same distance between Washington DC and Chicago, IL. If a "regional conflict" engulfed the Land of Lincoln and Rahm Emanuel were forced to flee City Hall while Farrakhan and the NOI killed all heretics Politico would not "stay out of it." In fact, Mr. Baron and his ilk would be flipping freaking out and fearing for their lives (with reason). You can't brush something like that off with bromides like this:
"But what is abundantly clear at the moment is that this remains, by and large, an internal Yemeni political conflict—one that, despite frequent sectarian mischaracterizations and potential regional implications, remains deeply rooted in local Yemeni issues."
Note the qualifiers - "by and large" and "potential". That's called fortune-telling on Germanwings with a parachute strapped on your back. But who can blame this visiting fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations for day dreaming and wishful thinking - the alternative is a bloody regional war that pits religious sects against one another in a multinational contest for dominance. A Game of Thrones with nukes and I'm not sure what "We" can get right about that.

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.
