The Hanger

There are a lot of ways to cheat at cards and some of the tactics are very subtle but one dead give away that someone is dealing from the bottom of the deck is a hanger.
The hanger: Made popular by the poker-playing police in Rounders, the hanger is virtually impossible to catch. It is however a dead giveaway that a player is dealing from the bottom of the deck. When an individual card is being dealt from a deck, it is uninhibited by any card above it. When a card is dealt from the bottom however, it can push out the card above it if pushed out with too much force. This results in the bottom card of the deck sticking out from the rest of the deck. The bottom card of a deck should never pop out as a hanger.
 When politicians start accusing their competitors of being sympathetic to the KKK you're looking at a hanger. Especially if that competitor is a Yankee real estate developer, thrice married (twice to immigrants) and with a Jewish daughter (converted). For anyone with even a rudimentary understanding of the Klan knows that this bio is NOT KKK material - in fact, it's damn near anti-Klan. I suppose I should be glad that a relatively new American like Marco Rubio has no idea what the Ku Klux Klan was or is today but before he starts leveling charges of Klan sympathy he should probably brush up on US History - Maybe he can download Birth of a Nation on his iPad and watch it during downtime between campaign appearances.


And while I don't expect a Cuban-American from Miami to have much first hand knowledge of the Klan, I do expect a Mormon prelate to know some Klan history - so I was pretty surprised to hear Mitt Romney deal from the bottom of the deck in todays speech.
"Let me say that again. There’s plenty of evidence that Mr. Trump is a con man, a fake. Mr. Trump has changed his positions not just over the years, but over the course of the campaign. And on the Ku Klux Klan, daily for three days in a row."
Oh yes, lets talk about the Klan day after day after day. Romney keeps this line of attack, thoroughly despicable though it is, fresh, vibrant and, based on his comments, legitimate (which it is not). Forget about Trump, this line of attack is absolute bullshit in light of todays reality and should't be used on anyone, including Democrats who are the direct decedents of the Klan.


Let's talk about TODAY. Let's talk about Barrio Azteca, MS-13 or The Wheels of Soul who terrorize communities in a way that would make the Klan blush. These are the new Klans and someone's got to have the guts and honesty to go after them. Who do you think that someone might be?

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.

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

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.
