Noah's Ark

I'm not a college sophomore so I rarely watch Comedy Central but my daughter is and she alerted me to this hilarious segment on The Daily Show by the Colored misogynistic, anti-semite comedian Trevor Noah who stumbles upon the GOP/Trump romantic comedy playing out on cable news 24/7.


It's very funny and true - and has become more true since it aired in March of this year. The love has always been there but the sissy-wimps in the GOP couldn't get over the personality and background of their brash suitor. Some of them still can't see true love when it's staring them right in the face. But that's okay because love takes time and "the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice." So I don't know if we're on "the right side of history" (or herstory or transtory) with this election but I think it's safe to say that we are living through Trumpstory and over the long, long haul everything's gonna be alright.

No unicorns on the Ark
When Trevor Noah glibly describes ostriches chasing you down a highway as an example of  "#ThirdWorldProblems" he's glossing over a slow motion crisis called South Africa (which happens to be the place he escaped from). Go find a South African that has emigrated to Perth or London or Anywhere USA and ask them about #ThirdWorldProblems in a #FormallyFirstWorldCountry. You'll find it's not so funny and, unless you're an ostrich with your head buried in the sand, it makes Trumps message completely reasonable - even rational. Steel gates on every door and window on your house and armed to the teeth but still you're an easy target and ain't no one going to save your lily-white Afrikaner ass. But you might be one of those who see that as a sign of ultimate justice in the arc but it's not just the former apartheid practitioners who are paying the price of progress. Everyone pays when a government becomes too corrupt to function properly and ethnic or racial identity becomes a citizens primary allegiance. American history is full of dreamers and deniers and flakes who talk a unified-field-theory and see their lives come crashing down when they try to put it into practice - worse, when they try to force everyone in the nation to put their ideas into practice - worse still, when they try to force other nations to put uniquely American hokum into practice in their xenophobic culture.

For all his faults, at least Trump doesn't ask us to do that.

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.

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

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.
