#TrainwreckGottaGoParty

Far be it for the KOTCB to take issue with anyone mocking Beyonce and her Formation video but it is hitleryarious that Amy Schumer should be kicked out of the "entertainment" world for doing so. What with the long list of transgressions against decency and taste this stupid video parody has launched the #AmySchumerGottaGoParty. Amazing how the world turns and how fine the line between Feminist Hero and Racist can be.
"She’s been accused in the past for telling racist jokes, implying that black men are more sexually aggressive than others, and exploiting black women in her comedy. Some people (including Schumer herself) chalk up much of the criticism to internet call-out culture and political correctness. And though she’s seen as a feminist hero for many, the fact that the #AmySchumerGottaGoParty started trending at all is a huge indication that there’s still a large disconnect between Schumer and black women. Maybe in the future she’ll think of another, less tone deaf way to pay homage to King Bey."
Don't mess with The Shady Ghost in the Machine Amy Schumer because not even cousin Chuck can get you out of the hole if you piss it off. It don't care what you think or what the justification for your actions might be - grovel NOW or face the consequences of your disrespect. You think you can just ride your white privilege right on up to the awards stage and take home the fame and money but you will find yourself knocked off that high-horse and wallowing in the mud like a drunken whore if you don't get your mind right - and I mean right now. This is the world you made so live with it.

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work."

I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months viewershi…

The Democracy Quirk

Let it be said that Politico is one of the most worthless web sites with clout on the internet - it's like the Washington Post after a night of hard drinking in the Georgetown bars that passed out on a friends couch. Predictable and stupid at the same time - Also, the editors appear to despise democracy as a political science and as practiced here in the USA. Their latest "explanation" for the Trump phenomenon takes aim at the voters and their knowing ignorance which can be easily explained by the Dunning-Kruger Effect. The article written by shrink/educator David Dunning illuminates a big, glaring problem in any democracy, and that is, "we all run the risk of being too ill-informed to notice when our own favored candidates or national leaders make catastrophic misjudgments." Shit, now you tell us, for surely this is not a problem unique to 2016 and probably was in effect in 2000 and 1980 and 1968 and so on...
But as a psychologist who has studied human behavi…

Running Fence 2

You probably know that the Congress (specifically the Senate) and the POTUS are at loggerheads over Federal funding for the Big Beautiful Wall to be built along the US southern boarder. The reasons for this impasse are long and complex so a quick review of how we got here might be in order.

The Elvis from Queens glided down the escalator at Trump Tower (corner of 57th & 5th) and declared to America and the World that he intended to build A Great Wall across the southern boarder when he became POTUS because this alternate speech was never going to happen (KOTCB Alternate Universe 06/15/2015)A few weeks later candidate Trump was presented with a big fat brick of pain and suffering that served as the cornerstone of his campaign (KOTCB Dirty Sanchez)The physical Wall served as a curative slap in the face of the DC establishment who had, over the years, constructed an elaborate Folly Wall in place of the real thing (KOTCB Decius drops the mic)The idea of the Big Beautiful Wall began to…
