What's is all about, Ali?

Though the KOTCB Blog has many readers in America and around the world for which I am humbly surprised every time I check out my analytics reporting (and I'm happy that so many people around the world take time to check in on my postings) it is, from it's inception, a project with a target audience of 3 people + my children who are all school age and need the deprograming the KOTCB provides. Here's a sampling of txt msg banter from over the weekend by this blogs primary audience:

Friday 6:51 PM EST
Earlyman - I am voting for Donald Trump no matter what! Deport deport deport! Are you guys aware of the serious terrorist attacks all over Paris tonight!? Horrible!!!
Lemonjello - France is always the first to fall. Deport!
Mr. White Chocolate Chas T - It's horrible and France will take action
Earlyman - Finally they must!!
Lemonjello - This is the prize for being tolerant and accepting of those kind of folks
Earlyman - Liberals.
Lemonjello - I'd been hearing that France was already overrun with them
Earlyman - Round'em up!! By skin color and where they kneel five times a day. Simple.
Lemonjello - Commentator just said, "They stay off their phones-- they learned from Snowden." We should put out a hit on that motherfucker!
MC Merdouche - Western Europeans/US have not the stomach for real war. Real war is unspeakable, civilized society turns a blind eye. Tragic what happened in Paris
Earlyman - its coming....
Lemonjello - These jihadis are a nation of Dylan Kleibolds who know they will never get laid or have good lives so they want to destroy the things they'll never have. What they don't realize is the beer commercial life doesn't exist. They can sweep floors in the Paris suburbs or be a big shot with an AK47 in the back of a pick up truck
Earlyman - It's a new world. Time to stamp'em out!!
Lemonjello - Deport. 19 of 19 9/11 hijackers were in US illegally. If you travel to YEmen, Syria, Iraq, Iran or Egypt you get detained at border with full cavity and background search. Add Saudi Arabia to that list. They are the real enemy
MC Merduoche - Exactly
Mr. White Chocolate Chas T - Wait a second, the beer commercial life doesn't exist? Then...then... What's it all about, Ali?
Lemonjello - Football

Go back, go back, go back into the woods.
Yes Football, and not the human pachinko beautiful game for wimps Futball, but red-blooded American Football. The ultimate sublimation of war and thereby a promoter of peace and harmony among peoples, townships, cities and regions across the fruited plane. In America we haven't shed each others blood in organized war since 1865 and a big reason for the relative tranquility is Football. As it happens, the day after the Terror Attacks in Paris I spent my afternoon at The Game, by which I mean the longest consecutive high school rivalry in the South between EHS and WFS and after 115 years these guy understand football. It was a great game with tremendous performances by both teams and their passionate fan base - this is hard hitting historic football at it's best with all the mistakes, crazy plays and reversal of fortune that makes high school football so much fun to watch. The game ended in a 14-14 draw which I thought was fantastic (I despise overtime in Football) because, in truth, both team had played their heart out with no definitive winner. It was the 9th tie game in the long and storied history of the rivalry.

Unfortunately for all of us, meaning Tigers and Maroon and all other peace loving humans on the planet, there is no such thing as a tie in Geopolitical Terror War. And it's only unfortunate because the leader of the free world has a "strategy" of playing for a tie regardless of what happens to us or our friends.
"This guy is out of his depth. He doesn’t know what to do because to do anything would require him to act against his two core beliefs: an intense dislike of the United States and admiration for all enemies of the United States. Now, finally, he has been revealed to the world as a poseur, something most of us have known since 2007. It is just a shame 500 people had to be killed or wounded in Paris to make the point clear."
 It will take someone with courage and vision to bring American Football to the Middle East but some day we'll see it - the Bagdad Cobras vs the Tehran Magic Genies in Trump Stadium.

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

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

A Apolitical Blues

Well my telephone was ringing, and they told me it was chairman Mao. You got to tell him anything 'cause I just don't want to talk to him now. According to the brilliant troubadour Lowell George the Apolitical Blues are " the meanest blues of all" and who am I to disagree with this soul man now after all these years of living by his maxim.  I first heard the song bursting from the 1972 vinyl of Little Feat's Alt-Rock-Country masterpiece "Sailin' Shoes" in the second story bedroom of my friend John's older brother Edie who, being about 3 years our senior, was instructing us on the importance of good music. This was circa 1975 and a formative time for my musical taste and overall aesthetic which, for better or worse, infuses every aspect of my existence including the KOTCB blog so a debt is owed this unforgettable "older brother" now that  he has shuffled off this mortal coil  and left us with smoky memories.
