Fireworks for the 1%

Jann's neighborhood
I've already covered the beach resort communities of the North East coastline but an item on Page Six of todays NYPost deserves some special KOTCB attention. My favorite target, Jann Wenner, is in the news again - not for his shoddy magazine, or its editors and writers, or his malicious influence on our culture, or his violence toward Rock & Roll - this time for an explosive beach bash in The Hamptons. Leaving aside the hideous architecture of these homes and much that could be said about The Hamptons generally, a couple of things popped out at me from this admittedly shallow report on the events of August 2nd in Montauk, N.Y. and this much we know:
  1. Wenner threw a bash for thirty (30) friends and decided to launch fireworks at 9:30 as part of the celebration. Not bottle rockets and M-80's mind you, but real, legitimate fireworks - the kind that require a permit from local authorities. 25 minutes of fireworks people - start a stopwatch and see how long 25 minutes lasts - that's a lot of TNT. So the first question I have is: What kind of person puts on a fireworks display for 30 people? Oh, right, Jann Wenner - that kind of person.
  2. At first the bombs went off O.K. but it didn't take long for the pyrotechnicians to realize that Jann's neighbors were taking incoming shrapnel and burning debris that threatened to burn down their house. Did they not bother to alert their patron of his friendly fire and the danger it posed to the house next door? Did Jann tell them to keep on shooting?
  3. Wenner never bothered to tell his neighbor that he was planning to torch the sky for 30 minutes at 9:30pm on a Sunday night. Looking at the proximity of the two homes in the photo above I think it would've been the neighborly thing to do to just give a shout over the hedge and say, "FYI Jim, I'm going to napalm the 'hood tonight after dinner so heads up, or down as the case may be."
Now I'll grant that Jann Wenner has five or six houses and probably can't get to know ALL his neighbors - and who knows how much time he actually spends at his Hamptons place - but shouldn't he be on speaking terms with his next door neighbor who lives, literally, 10 feet away? This situation is indicative of the Wenner worldview which is narcissistic in the extreme. It bashes the evil, self-satisfied 1%ers of the world and ignores its own conduct and transgressions. Isolated behind security gates and wire fences it espouses the need for "community organizing" in the morning, and social justice in the afternoon and then tries to burn down your house at night.

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.
