our own moral awakening


"We come to ponder a terrible force unleashed in a not-so-distant past."
 That force is currently making the rounds in APAC where he spoke nuclear war in Hiroshima, Japan and informed the Japs that "we have a shared responsibility to look directly into the eye of history." An admonishment for which I must make the recommendation that those living in Nippon not "look directly" for more than a few seconds lest their eyes melt out of their sockets like they were hit by a 15 kiloton atomic bomb.



Oh heartless KOTCB, how could you make light of Hiroshima and its symbolic significance - A symbol that cries out for a moral awakening and recognition of the universal brotherhood of man? Well, I've actually been there and I've walked the thriving streets of Hiroshima. I arrived by "bullet train" from Tokyo (which, by the way, had been obliterated in the spring of '45 in a one day firebombing) and slept the night in a youth hostile with other Gaijin in town for the sights. I went to the bomb memorial, saw the steel dome, looked at the drawings of children survivors and watched a filmed documentary on the August 1945 attacks. I even went outside the park and visited the memorial to the Korean slaves who were commandeered to toil in the Japanese railway and it stands outside the "peace park" because the Japanese don't quite consider the Koreans human beings and did not permit them to place the monument inside the gates. It's all very illuminating and though the destruction and suffering resulting from an atomic blast is sickening it doesn't seem to stop people from building the things if they know how or trying to build them if they don't yet have them. 70 years and no moral awakening yet - instead a moral stupor that acquiesces to ever more proliferation of the infernal technology and in the not-so-distant past new and unstable additions to the nuclear family of nations.

Since there has been no moral awakening it looks like we'll have to turn to behavioral science to keep mans warlike passions in check. Ponder the terrible force unleashed fellow citizen... ponder.

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.
