The Chagrin that saved Christmas

Learning is hard because it requires making mistakes and if you're the kind of person who doesn't make mistakes (which most people are) then admitting you've made one, which is the prerequisite for learning, hurts - it hurts bad. This President has been strapped to the couch and "analyzed" over and over throughout his two terms and pro or con I think most of these armchair shrinks fail to diagnose the man and his mind. His Presidential Address to the Nation last night left his supporters and critics flailing about for a very simple reason - he didn't say much of anything that he hasn't said a thousand times before and everyones already commented on those previous times with barrels of ink and mountains of bits or pixels or whatever. But there was, mixed in with all the usual cant, a glimmer of hope - the distant sound of the Whos singing far down in the valley reaching the Presidents ear and, perhaps, some growth in his heart.
"The FBI is still gathering the facts about what happened in San Bernardino, but here is what we know.  The victims were brutally murdered and injured by one of their coworkers and his wife.  So far, we have no evidence that the killers were directed by a terrorist organization overseas, or that they were part of a broader conspiracy here at home.  But it is clear that the two of them had gone down the dark path of radicalization, embracing a perverted interpretation of Islam that calls for war against America and the West.  They had stockpiled assault weapons, ammunition, and pipe bombs.  So this was an act of terrorism, designed to kill innocent people."
Hard words people - hard to speak them even if they're just scrolling on a teleprompter and hard to accept the doors those words open. It took him days to give this address - days of processing and thinking about what his administrations strategy had accomplished - and I believe that he doesn't want to ever give it again. The humbling of Barak H Obama might, just might, spur him on to coldly, mercilessly kick Jihadi ass way beyond what Geo. Bush could have dreamed of doing. The media will turn a blind eye if Obama takes off the gloves - especially if he misdirects attention with "gun control" rhetoric to keep the nattering nabobs focused on domestic politics. Watch what the Grinch does, not what he says over the next 12 months. Chances are good that he'll leave the White House and international troop deployments looking a lot like they did the day he came into office. Special Forces creeping back into Iraq, no one's leaving Afghanistan, GITMO open and taking new arrivals - An eight year pause in the long war for Western Civilization and when it's wrapping up in Dec 2016 we'll all be in a big circle singing:
Fah who foraze! Dah who doraze!
Welcome Christmas, come this way!
Fah who foraze! Dah who doraze!
Welcome Christmas, Christmas Day!

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.
