Bricks and Bones


This blog has been tough on President Obama and not without cause, but hanging out in South Africa has reset my parochial American mind and given me a new appreciation for 0. In short, things could be a hell of a lot worse for the U.S.A. and maybe, in the future, they will be, but for now I'll ride out the next 18 months and pretty much keep my mouth shut. Jacob Zuma makes Obama look like a frigg'n dream of deep thinking, competent wisdom and he makes Bill Clampett look like a choir boy. Corruption, rape, polygamy, love children (multiple) and the fate of a nation all shouldered by a cattle herder with a 3rd grade education. But the chief just laughs and goes on his merry way - Americans complain about Scott Walker not finishing college or Hillary taking bribes through her family foundation and all I can say is Zuma to that. Here in JoBurg everyone lives behind a gate, the power goes out every night for a few hours, no one walks the streets at night (or day) and they protest (riot) all the time.
Zuma befriends the worst of the worst and there seems to be no way of getting him out of office. This is a one party state and since the ANC rules the Parliament and Zuma is their guy he rules. The DA (opposition party) is desperate to become competitive, but there is little hope of winning a majority. This place is Baltimore on steroids and there's no Washington DC to bail them out - well, I probably shouldn't speak so soon because who knows what Obama has planned for the final year of his Presidency. Anyway, it couldn't be that bad, could it? Thank God the Afrikaners got rid of their nukes before handing over the government to the ANC because who knows what mischief a Zuma could make with a few bombs in his arsenal. Still, as bad as it is, I have to say I've really enjoyed South Africa and the people. Very beautiful place and wonderful hospitality while I was here. It's a strange mix of 3rd world and 1st world and I hope the people here persevere despite their leadership.

Back in the USA we've got it good, real good.

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.

Who voted for this guy?

Who voted for this guy? It's been ten days since the results of the Maricopa County, Arizona ballot audit were released to the public and presented at a hearing held by the state senate. This exercise in democratic accountability had been going on for months and, if reports are to be believed, was completed well over a  month before the September 24th hearing where   overwhelming proof of an illegitimate election was presented to lawmakers . The audit showed multiple irregularities, fake ballots, duplicate counts, errors, omissions and egregious acts of sabotage and obstinance by the Maricopa County board of supervisors who did everything they could to withhold and destroy evidence of wrongdoing from the citizen sleuths. The misfeasance of Arizona's political leaders was clearly defined, shocking and (for some) beyond belief but somehow these facts were discovered, organized, packaged and suppressed for MONTHS by the Cyber Ninjas who were attempting to "get to the bottom&q

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.
