SlowBirthing

Have you ever been to Hawaii? I'm from the mid-Atlantic region of the USA so for most of my life I'd never made the trip. If I need to visit some island paradise I hop on a jet and fly down to the Bahamas or Jamaica or (maybe) further south to Antigua and kick back with a lime punch in hand surveying the pink sand and crystal clear aqua sea while surly natives cook, clean and bang out some sweet melody on the steel drum. The gated compounds are lush, manicured mirages populated by beautiful people and if you're feeling adventurous you can always hire a van to drive you and your friends/family to a remote and magical spot on the island for a swim underneath the waterfalls or snorkeling at a fish flushed reef. It's beautiful and relaxing and exotic so why waste the time (10 hours from IAD) and money (Hawaii ain't cheap) to visit some remote islands located in the middle of the pacific ocean when the West Indies are so much closer and (sometimes) cheaper. I mean, Hawaii couldn't be THAT much more spectacular and amazing than Jamaica, right? Wrong!

Hawaii is Shagri-La. Hawaii is one of the most amazing places on planet earth and makes the dingy Caribbean islands look like rat and bug infested sand traps where people drink like fish and pass out in their back porch hammock waiting for the next hurricane to sweep them and their flimsy aluminum shack out to sea. The Hawaiian islands rise out of the sea like the mighty crown of Poseidon encircled with clouds that sprinkle rain on it's lush green fields and forest scattering rainbows across the sky. There you can walk, as Adam, sky-clad eating delicious fruit picked from the trees and watch whales breaching a hundred yards off the beach your Eve is sprawled upon waiting for you to make mad love to her. And where is this paradise located? If you're like me you probably envision Hawaii located just off the Cali/Oregon cost surrounded by a white box - you know it's out in the Pacific Ocean somewhere but its longitude and latitude is a unknown and trivial.


Hawaii is the most isolated population center on Earth. It is 2,390 miles (3,846 km) from California, 3,850 miles (6,196 km) from Japan and 4,900 miles (7,886 km) from China. Hawaii shares the same general latitude of 20°N with cities and environments such as Hong Kong, Mecca, the Sahara Desert and Mexico City.
Hawaii exists in the middle of nowhere. It is so remote that it's incredible there were any indigenous people inhabiting the islands - how the hell did they get there? Who was the brave Polynesian that canoed deep into the endless sea to find it, and how did he find his way home to tell the tribe? Europeans didn't even know the place existed until two years after the US Declaration of Independence was signed when Capt. James Cook washed up on shore and started infecting the natives with disease. Those natives that did not die of measles killed each other in bloody civil war that left the islands a political basket case for 150 years until it became a US State in 1959 (a little over a year before Barack Obama was born there). Hawaii is a lot of things but one thing it is NOT (except on paper) is the United States of America.

Which brings me to "birtherism" and the insane drama surrounding the issue of Obama's birthplace. The truth, the larger truth, is that the DC cartel and their PR department called the national media don't care if Obama was born in the USA and they think the entire issue, constitutional though it might be, is an anachronistic requirement from a bygone and discredited era. They wouldn't care if he was born in Kenya, which is only slightly more distant and exotic than Hawaii, far away from the US mainland - they don't even like the fact that this "illegitimate" issue is being raised. The 44th POTUS didn't live in "America" (the North American Continent) until he was 18 years old so his formative years - the years where he leaned what it actually meant to BE an American were spent in paradise and hell (Jakarta, Indonesia). This is the birtherism issue and it has nothing to do with race, but rather, weather this USA should be lead at the top by someone who has so faint a connection at the deep psychic level (in his subconscious) with the land, traditions and people of the country he represents.

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.
