Sourpatch Slurpee Day

30 times the wait for half the value
It's 7/11Day and that means lines through the door of the soulless convenience store at the local strip mall of Americans looking for a hand-out.  You never really know how much Americans love the iced sugar water of a Slurpee until you hand them out for free and then the humans come out of their hobbit holes by the mini-van load to fill their cup. You probably will think I'm making this up but I'm not - it takes about 25 minutes of waiting in line just to get in front of the Slurpee machine but people will do it for a free drink and do it gladly, happily. And they're not even getting a full sized Slurpee but some special edition super small cup which is more like a half Slurpee. So people are waiting inside a 7-Eleven (one of the most inhospitable environments ever devised by man) for a half hour (or 30 times the average wait time) for a product that's half its normal value and that product only costs about $1.00. No wonder politicians are always promising free stuff to the voters - people just don't do a CBA if it's free.

And that's a big problem because freedom isn't free. I've been amazed at the gentle treatment our president has enjoyed ever since he started sending US troops back to Iraq in June 2014. He was sneaky in sending a relatively small (300) group in first, but now it's grown to almost 5,000 and God only knows how many contractors who operate off the books.
The new troop deployment comes two years after Mr. Obama said that while the United States would help the Iraqi military reclaim territory from the Islamic State, those efforts would “not involve American combat troops fighting on foreign soil.” Since then, he has steadily increased the number of troops in Iraq and given them more authority. Three service members have been killed.
In other words (words the NYTimes can't bring themselves to print) we're back in Iraq America. We're not balls-deep yet, but Barack is a skillful seducer who takes his time - like a free Slurpee you don't even realize you're getting screwed while it's happening - worse, you're stupid enough to think you're getting a good deal. Slurp up the sweet cold ice but not too fast lest you get brain-freeze.

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.
