Real Dogs Eat Meat

In most elections the Libertarian candidate steals votes from the GOP candidate and when the Republicans nominate is a bible-thumper or warmonger the free-thinking Randian can often take enough votes to throw the election to the Democrat in the race. So the media, being good Democrats, leave the Libertarians alone and let them go about their business. Not this year.

This year the Libertarian Gary Johnson is taking votes from HRC and here's the proof.


There was a bit of lead up into the Aleppo question and it's worth reading the full transcript of the event but here's how it should have gone down:
BARNICLE: Which of those candidates of the two-party system — Republican candidate, Democratic candidate — do you draw the most votes from?
JOHNSON: You know, in all of these polls it’s just, remarkably, 50-50. Amazingly, I think, though, that with the exception of just a few polls it’s more votes from Hillary.
BARNICLE: Do you —
JOHNSON: But I think — I think when it ends up it will really be 50-50.
BARNICLE: But do you worry about the Nader effect in 2000?
JOHNSON: I don’t worry one bit about it. I really do think that the two-party system is broken. I don’t think Democrats are able to balance a checkbook these days. That’s it’s all about bigger government and higher taxes. And then Republicans with, I think, the social agenda. Look, whatever your social inclinations are just don’t force it on me. And I think the Republican Party has gotten really extreme in that category.
BARNICLE: What would you do, if you were elected, about Aleppo?
JOHNSON: About?
BARNICLE: Aleppo.
JOHNSON: Go fuck yourself you partisan Democrat stooge.
BARNICLE: You’re kidding.
JOHNSON: No. You think you're going to throw out some random word - totally out of any context - signifying a place, chemical or military term and try to make me look stupid or uninformed and I'm not going play your bullshit game.
BARNICLE: Aleppo is in Syria. It’s the — it’s the epicenter of the refugee crisis.
JOHNSON: OK, got it, got it. Well, I bet there's not one person out of ten thousand in this country that could even find Syria on the map. If I were president I wouldn't do anything about Aleppo and neither will any of the other candidates.
BARNICLE: OK.
No, not OK. Johnson is pulling votes from Hillary so he must be destroyed. Many of the Republicans that are supporting Johnson are men married to Democrat woman who can't take the nagging at home so will keep talking about the Libertarian until they draw the curtain on election day and pull the lever for the Elvis from Queens.

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.
