Palmyra BC/AD

Palmyra Syria (old) and Virginia (new)
Palmyra in Syria is suffering the ravages of barbarous force but Palmyra, VA is just getting started (in a global historical way) so shed no tears for the desecration of the Temple of Baalshamin because it's just the early days of a multi-decade regional war which will see countless ancient artifacts demolished and turned to dust. The new Palmyra is the future and though it might be hideous to the eye it is far removed from ISIS and their twisted theosophy. Sure the old Palmyra is of "Outstanding Universal Value" but its destruction is a legacy of the Obama/Clinton/Kerry foreign policy initiative and, too bad, you get what you vote for. Palmyra, VA has (as you can see in the photo above) churches that make an extraordinary architectural statement , institutional schools, international shopping plazas, vending machines that deliver sugar water and filmed entertainment, lots of parking and copious storage facilities for overflow items that might clutter ones home. With a population of just over 100 people the town is primed for growth and the future is brighter than that of their distant cousins in the middle east. Good luck old Palmyra and cheerio from the Old Dominion - we watch the desecration of your monuments and artifacts with a heavy heart and wish there were still fully manned US Army bases in Iraq to help you out, but there are not and no rescue cavalry for another year and a half (at the very least) so hang in there if you can - God willing someone will step in to set things right late January 2017.

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.
