The Good Soldier

The KOTCB blog had it's first posting a week after the 2004 Presidential election and John Kerry has made regular appearances since it's inception. I've watched him from afar and flown with him on airplanes - read his speeches and and even found myself rooting for him from time to time. He's been a constant presence in my life as long as I can remember - my college days in Boston when he ran for the US Senate (and won!) against a wonderful businessman named Ray Shamie who would have made a great Senator. In Washington Kerry made mischief with Chris Dodd and Ted K with legendary stories bantered about the yuppie set that partied it up in G-town and the fruit loop - I know because I was there (not that I was following JFKthelesser around, I wasn't, it's just the way it worked out) and when you're a young post college striver it's pretty damn annoying to have your date get hit on by a drunken 45 year old US Senator with no moral scruples or impulse control but that's the way it is. His journey continued and being The Good Soldier that he is, he was tapped to take out the surging Howard Dean in the 2004 Democrat primary battle which he did with cold hearted dispatch. The rest is history, but if the scientists are right there are an infinite number of parallel universes to the one we currently inhabit and so let me take you, ever so swiftly, to one of them.

"This is what Grand-père does all day"
(New York) Now in the fourth year of his third term as President JFK has finally signed a long sought  international agreement to stop climate change. "This is the kind of document that makes all the turmoil and conflict we've experienced over the past five years worth it", said President Kerry as he put pen to paper while holding his granddaughter on his lap. Aids claim the President was referring to the violent insurrection that took place when he used executive order 1532 to abolish the twenty-second amendment thereby paving the way to his third term - a feat equaled only by JFK's idol FDR. "The International Community means everything to me and these pages are a testament to its power and glory", he said referring to the thick stack of paper requiring multiple signatures siting on the desk in front of him. The environment has been a key policy priority for President Kerry for the past 12 years and after his many failed attempts to extract US troops from Iraq and the ongoing conflict in Viet Nam this is an important and desperately needed win for the administration. Though important initiatives like immigration reform and building a 21st Century economy have seen little progress there's always next year and President Kerry plans to highlight these issues in this years Presidential race when he competes against long time rival Jeb Bush in hopes of securing a fourth term in office.

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

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

I've Got You Dumb Motherfuckers Eating Right Out Of My Hand

The branches of government In 2011 John Lasseter wrote an opinion piece for The Onion which exposed Pixar's production strategy and shocking success in the marketplace : "Yes, after the success of our first few movies we had a hunch you'd continue to enjoy the wonderfully designed animation and our smart, lyrical writing, but I didn't think we'd create a horde of drooling morons ready to drop everything just to watch a fucking rat cook dinner." This observation was in reference to a Pixar film titled "Ratatouille" about a rat who dreams of becoming a French chef which, to my lights, created one of the most unappetizing and subversive stories ever told. The idea of rats running roughshod in a Michelin-starred restaurant is bad enough but when the proposition that "Anyone can cook" is taken to its evil and impossible extreme I must object for France and humanity. Using that movie and others as an example Lasseter makes the point that his
