Don't Know

People who want a crystal ball on the November Presidential election take polls and some of these polls are extensive like when Morning Consultant canvased 44k people/citizens/voter(?) to give a synopsis of who's the best bet for GOPers to beat Hitlery - no surprise, it's Gov. K in a walk. More people in more States like the mailman's son and at this point, as all thoughtful people know, Kasich is the only Republican who can win. But there's one group of people that pollsters never seem to take into consideration when compiling winners and losers and ironically this group of simpletons are the ones who actually make the decision on who gets elected. I'm talking about the Americans who "Don't Know" or have no opinion on the matter - they just can't get it together to have a favorite candidate at this point in the campaign. They will decide some time in the nearish future - probably over the two weeks leading up to the first Tuesday in November but really aren't going to bother themselves about all of this bullshit until after Labor day and maybe not until after Halloween. They don't think there's much of a difference in the choices and it's all just a circus anyway where people lie and cheat and spend a lot of money making fools of themselves for the privilege of riding in limos, ordering around toadies and boot-lickers and passing laws.

Each of the two major political parties has a dedicated group of true believers that comprise roughly 37% to 43% of the voting public. They will vote for a Democrat or Republican no matter who gets chosen as the chief cheerleader for the cause. But there are always 15% to 20% of the great unwashed who Don't Know and not just about politics either - Coke vs. Pepsi gets about the same number of mushy, middle of the road, non-deciders. These Royal Crown Cola drinkers are the people that our elections hinge on and have the final say. They don't watch the news. They are not engaged in the process. They don't read the KOTCB blog. These people are tending their garden, throwing around the frisbee, sniffing a wine glass, petting their dog and spinning some classic vinyl on their turntable daydreaming about bedtime. They'll vote for someone in November but they probably won't know for sure who it's going to be until they draw the curtain in the voting booth. Making a prediction about what these Don't Know types will do in November is pure folly (and these predictions are always made by someone in the 37% die-hard group for a particular party) and nobody should do anything, political or otherwise, based on their non-opinion.

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.
