Show me your tears

Nice thoughts. Especially because Islam is a religion of peace.

My friends from around the world text me things like this:
"Nice, France slaughter, 80 dead, MG how long will it take for folks to realize?"

Answer: Three (3!) days after 9/11 I stood on the sidewalk at Union Square and watched thousands of free citizens march past me chanting and singing in an anti-war peace parade. They wanted to make a preemptive strike, psychologically speaking, on the body politic to forestall any military retaliation on the terrorists who had JUST FLOWN TWO COMMERCIAL JETS INTO THE ECONOMIC HEART OF AMERICA (and the Western world). I remember thinking to myself at the time - We're toast. We don't have the stomach or the commitment to outlast this adversary and, to be perfectly honest, an objective review of the parade of misfits in front of me gave me pause to contemplate the prospect that the Islamic whack-jobs had a more clear-eyed assessment of the battlefield and their adversary than I did. They see the fecklessness and the rot - the mealy-mouthed shame and cultural fragmentation - the empty, high-minded platitudes and schmaltzy emotionalism - and they perceive weakness and opportunity. And even if the Islamic State don't see this, the great powers like Russia and China do so if they couldn't talk hot-headed Mohammedans into doing the dirty work they'd find somebody else. The West has all the firepower but psychologically and emotionally the West lives in fear.

And now we're afraid of trucks. This is (I am absolutely not making this up - click the link if you don't believe me) the NBC News headline on the Nice terror attack.

Nice Death Toll Rises as France Mourns After Truck Attack

Now smarty pants NBC News consumers know how to read and they know world geography (and maybe a little french) and they know that self driving cars are still in the prototype stage of development so they might understand what NBC News is trying to say here, but for the average rube surfing the internet it reads something like this:

Nice (as in pleasant or good) Death Toll Rises (going up) as France Mourns (frogs not happy) After Truck Attack (say what? A truck attacked someone? What the hell is going on with these trucks?)

But even the most worldly and wise act like they haven't understood any of the headlines from papers around the world for the past few months (not the mention years) and the numerous terror attacks from Istanbul (formerly Constantinople) to Brussels  to Orlando.

Shock, sympathy as world leaders respond to terror attack in Nice

Got that? Shocked. The leaders of the world are SHOCKED at this terror attack. Can't frigg'n believe it. Jesus, where did this come from? Out of the blue baby - hit me like a rock in the head. Really blown away by this truck and the fact that it attacked all these innocent people. Stunned, astonished, dumbfounded...

And, it goes without saying but it must me said, sympathetic - sharing a feeling. Our pathos is universal and enduring - it would be eternal except some jihadi freak or a robot they someday control or a nuke they create is going to wipe our sniveling cry-baby asses clean off the face of the earth and that will be the merciful end of it. Until that day comes, show me your tears.

Now that you are standing here
I feel a little weird
I start to brood and sneer
I gave you all I can
I used to be your man
I could beg but I demand

Show me your tears (3X)
Come on where's your heart man
Show me your tears (3X)
Come on where's your heart man
Show me your tears (3X)

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.

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. This list

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.
