His Saturn in Cancer

 The "conservative" punditry meltdown is going China Syndrome because Trump is winning. As cited in previous blog posts the simple joy of watching and reading their histrionics is one of the greatest aspects of the Trump candidacy. I could honestly write a KOTCB blog post every day on the stupidity and small mindedness (to say nothing of libelous spirit) of their attacks - It gives me a much clearer insight into why "the Left" treats them with contempt and never listens/reads a word they say.

Today NYTimes conservative op-ed writer David Brooks diagnoses The Governing Cancer of Our Time and concludes that it has metastasized into a Trump lump that must be removed. He starts off by defaming the Founders of the nation:
"We live in a big, diverse society. There are essentially two ways to maintain order and get things done in such a society — politics or some form of dictatorship. Either through compromise or brute force. Our founding fathers chose politics."
And they say Donald Trump is simplistic! Forget the false dichotomy and the nuance around "compromise" and "brute force" or even the notion that we live in some kind of "big, diverse" unified uber-culture. Let talk about what our founding fathers "chose" and what they chose was to go to war against the greatest military power on earth and fight them (and their colonial loyalists, of which David Brooks would probably have been one) for 8 long years of blood, sweat and tears which would have resulted in certain death by execution on order of an English Governor were they to loose. That's the choice THEY made and after these Patriots had defeated the Red Coats, burned the King in effigy and written insults in their Declaration of Independence that would make David Brooks blush they went on about their business - each State taking care of its own under the Articles of Confederation for over a decade. They did not choose politics as much as it was forced upon them and so they devised a Constitution to unify the country to promote trade and provide a common defense (including a secure boarder).

From the start this guy Brooks is all wet but he really pees his pants over Trump.
Trump represents the path the founders rejected. There is a hint of violence undergirding his campaign. There is always a whiff, and sometimes more than a whiff, of “I’d like to punch him in the face.”
David Brooks thinks Trump is a Cancer but in reality he's a Gemini and they are very different Zodiac signs with different temperaments. However, Trumps Saturn is in Cancer so take a second look David - try to see it from the Donald's perspective:
"Did you know The Donald has a sensitive side?! With his communication planet Mercury and love planet Venus in Cancer, don’t be surprised to learn Trump is a softie at heart whose family is very important to him. His communication style is sentimental, and he loves deeply -- but can get his feelings hurt easily. His Saturn in Cancer indicates he may have underlying fears about not being loved. Hmmm… Perhaps, then, the lion roars to mask his fear of getting hurt?"
 Trump is not an authoritarian tyrant - he's just afraid of being alone and unloved. When people say mean things about him it hurts his feelings and he lashes out. So try a little kindness and I'm sure Trump will love you back.

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.

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

Who voted for this guy?

Who voted for this guy? It's been ten days since the results of the Maricopa County, Arizona ballot audit were released to the public and presented at a hearing held by the state senate. This exercise in democratic accountability had been going on for months and, if reports are to be believed, was completed well over a  month before the September 24th hearing where   overwhelming proof of an illegitimate election was presented to lawmakers . The audit showed multiple irregularities, fake ballots, duplicate counts, errors, omissions and egregious acts of sabotage and obstinance by the Maricopa County board of supervisors who did everything they could to withhold and destroy evidence of wrongdoing from the citizen sleuths. The misfeasance of Arizona's political leaders was clearly defined, shocking and (for some) beyond belief but somehow these facts were discovered, organized, packaged and suppressed for MONTHS by the Cyber Ninjas who were attempting to "get to the bottom&q
