Clown Establishes "Safe Space"

Safe in Waukesha
Creating a "safe space" or "safe zone" is the new fad on college campuses all over America. Some people are very concerned about it, but I figure it will have about as much impact on national life as pole sitting, streaking or planking did - none.  "Safe spaces" are difficult to create and maintain, especially in "gun-free zones" which most college campuses are, and no school president or administrator is going to bloody their hands to establish them in a meaningful way. It's just a passing fancy that students who are dedicated to learning and intellectual exploration are going to have to put up with for a year or two and, once they graduate, remember with grim amusement once they're living and working in the un-safe world of reality. This years fad started in the magical land of Mizzou and quickly spread to those infamous copy-cat Ivy's. Now it's everywhere - including Carroll University in Waukesha, WI where an innovative performance artist is creating "safe spaces" through impromptu appearances wearing clown garb. Hey, whatever it takes!

WaPo and the NYTimes bear witness:
PRINCETON, N.J. — Princeton’s student activists have got everyone talking.
A 32-hour sit-in and a marathon meeting inside the president’s’ office ended with President Christopher Eisgruber signing a document that promised, among other things, to consider the removal of Woodrow Wilson’s name from the university.
Yep, scrub his name from Princeton. Hell, scrub his name from US history. I'm all for it - this is a movement I support without reservation. Of course, most of the Democrat party will go down the drain with Woodrow once the scrubbing is finished and we rinse the sink, but that's history for ya'.

My guess is that, unfortunately, Princeton will NOT expurgate WW from the institution but might place some kind of "safe space" sign beside his statue saying something judgmental about his racism and personality disorder but reminding students that his heart was in the right place - he loved government. But I want Princeton students to know, there is a better way to create a safe space and you don't have to look far to find an very effective example.

Last week I went to the NCAA Women's Soccer Tournament to watch the Princeton Tigers take on the USC Trojans (neither one are very feminine mascots but whatever) and arriving late I parked my car about 1/4 mile from the stadium but even from that distance I heard the bellow of a fan drifting out from the bleachers. As I approached the tournament I counted the cadence of every shout, every cheer, every word of encouragement from this dedicated Tigers Dad and he average a shout out every 6 to 10 seconds. He kept up the encouragement THE ENTIRE GAME and, in doing so, created a "safe space" of at least 15 feet around his person - no one dared sit near him on the bleachers. He was alone, protected and safe. Here is the lesson young Ivy League strivers - shout it out at the top of your lungs longer and louder than anyone can bear and you'll find your "safe space" - create it yourself, don't ask someone to make it for you, and you will find your freedom.

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.

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.

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.
