Industrial Democracy

...but people buy it anyway
It's an old idea that's back in fashion and with the rise of Bernie a true champion of Industrial Democracy is leading the vanguard of desperate "revolutionaries" to institute real change in Americas governing ideals. The numbers from New Hampshire are in and the Independent from Vermont is berning down the house of Clinton like some 1960's SDS goofball with a Molotov cocktail. Sane Democrats who actually own some piece of the American dream must be freaking out and initiating Plan B right now - can they keep putting it off for another primary and then another? At some point having Biden or Kerry swoop in to save the day is going to look like what it is - a desperate, last gasp effort to stop the Socialist fairy tale and save their general election prospects and the country. In all honesty, it might already be too late for the Democrats to save themselves from having their parties nomination stolen by a man who holds that party in such disdain that he won't even call himself a Democrat.
Confronted with the choice, the American people would choose the policeman's truncheon over the Anarchist's bomb.

There's nothing new or revolutionary about Bernie Sanders and the fact that he gets a comparatively open playing field from the press and his political opponents is indicative of a class immersed in Industrial Democracy for so long that they've lost the ability to even see what it is. What it is IS:
Industrial Democracy is what we've got NOW and Bernie wants to turn it up to 11. Why people buy into the illusion that free college and free health care and free anything will improve their lot is a mystery - make it all free and you're still not going to have Scandinavia on the Potomac. Bernie, on the other hand, will be living the kingly life while restructuring the game board (for your own good, and the good of others) and reading you the new rules. In the Government Industry (otherwise known as Public Sector) the Federal Government is the seat of true power and Bernie is leading a peasant revolt to depose the queen. These "peasants", rich and educated though they might be, are marching and singing and voting as if they're livelihoods depended on it (and for many it does) - but that's how important it is when you live in an Industrial Democracy.

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.
