but will he take Diane von Furstenberg with him?


Barry Diller is promising to leave the country if The Donald gets elected president. I feel sorry for the GOP field - every time the shimmer starts to fade for Trump some crazy, out of nowhere situation happens that sprinkles the front runner with Fairy Dust - in this case, Barry Dust. 
“All he is is a huckster,” Diller said of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. “Somebody who learned long ago in real estate that if you can make a big name for yourself, it can get you an extra dollar.” In addition to questioning the GOP front-runner's motivation for running, Diller attacked Trump for appealing to the nation's worser angels. “He’s a self-promoting huckster who found a vein,” Diller continued. “A vein of meanness and nastiness.”
Just a huckster? A self-promoting huckster? If that's all Donald Trump is Mr. Diller, then what are you? Why the hell does anyone even know who you are? You run TV networks and mega web sites serving up garbage to the American consumer. You think you're "better" than Trump?

It's clear that the world is turned upside down when a billionaire high society walker who's made his fortune polluting the mind and character of the little people in middle America says he's going to leave the country if he doesn't like who those same people vote for.
“I just think it’s a phenomenon of reality television as politics. I think that that is how it started, reality television as you all know is based on conflict."
Actually, many readers might not know that, but Barry Diller sure does - he started out as a TV Programing Director. He knows all about programming. He helped create "reality television" when he was a big deal in Hollywood - Now he's on to his 3rd act.
Those who meet with him say his ability to grasp new and complicated concepts is uncanny. And his 20,000 employees better keep up.
"Have you ever heard your meetings described as making people crawl over barbed wire?" Stahl asks.
"Oh, please. For some people I think it is that, but look, it is absolutely process," he says.
Diller says it's not screaming and yelling but admits the process is intense. 
Not mean or nasty, just intense and soon to be living in Monaco.

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.
