Khan you explain the 22nd Amendment?

Scanning my FB feed this morning I scrolled across this beauty to start my day. The realization that the US Constitution created an electoral college to act as democratic electors of the national leaders has, in the mind of Trustafarian Americanus, invalidated the notion that the United States of America is a democracy at all. Even though this fellow has a wonderful, (very) well educated family and has attended fine educational institutions himself the electoral college proves that he's been "lied to" all his life. In a sense, he's right - it's easy to go through life in America and not learn a damn thing about the US Constitution and it's republican form of government. For instance, this same disillusioned youth took to the streets (Interstate Highway System, actually) a few weeks ago and joined a BLM mob who shut down the 405 in Los Angeles. SHUT IT DOWN! Have you ever driven on the 405? There are few stretches of highway in America more strife ridden than an evening commute on the 405 and were I driving on the highway and found myself engulfed and halted by a few hundred protesters I'd be sorely tempted to run them over regardless of what the constitution says - And according to them the constitutions affords them the "right" to shut down 8 lanes of super-highway traffic.

Which brings to mind Khizr Khan waving his pocket copy of the US Constitution at the DNC and offering to lend it to Donald Trump so that the GOP candidate might read it. It's a great idea and while he's at it Mr. Khan might xerox a copy and send it to HRC for her to read - I wonder what she'd make of the Twenty-second Amendment:
Section 1. No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. 
Does it occur to anyone, educated or not, that electing the wife of a former president who had completed his two terms in office is a direct violation of the spirit of this amendment. When they wrote it up do you think anyone thought a political party would be so base as to nominate the wife of a former president so that he might wiggle his way back into the White House? I think it never crossed their mind, but at this point those legislators who toiled to create this check on executive power must feel like they were "lied to" by someone and spinning in their grave.

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.
