I've waited 31 years for this moment

Based on this The Price Is Right video I think The Elvis from Queens has a good shot at winning North Carolina on Tuesday. As Bob Barker says, "Loyalty to this show paid off" and no voter is more loyal than the Trump voter. It's been decades since Michael from NC had a presidential candidate he was actually excited about voting for and that dearth of nationalist (dare I say nativist) politician was effected by design - it's voter suppression, but it's the "good" kind of voter suppression. Just watch the video and you'll see why Michael is so dangerous - dedicated, attentive, smart, great memory, demanding, rule following and capable of creating his own, hand-made, tee shirt design. He picks the winning price for the moto-scooter - not close, but the EXACT price - and is brought up on the main stage to meet the cleaver, polished and quaffed, tailor suited game show host with the metaphysically perfect name of Bob Barker and says, "I've waited 31 years for this moment" and proceeds to ask for the $500 he's due for knowing the exact price of the product. Like any barker, be it a carny flim-flam man, game show host or politician, the first thing the guy holding the cash does is negotiate a discount on what was promised the rube, contestant or voter - in this instance Bob Barker claims to be so flustered that he only has $400 and asks Micheal if that will be enough. Answer: yes, probably, but you'll owe me...


31 years Michael has been waiting and watching The Price Is Right every day - figuring it out. There are hundreds of thousands like him in North Carolina (and every other state in the USA) though unless you watch The Price Is Right or other select, niche programing you'd never know it. There is no show about Michael on prime-time networks or even cable. He has no representation for his viewpoint on any news program. There is no Association or interest group dedicated to his advancement in state or federal capitals. As far as the meta-culture, mediasphere or popular ethos churned out of DC/NYC/LA is concerned this guy doesn't even exist - he is psychologically dispossessed and ignored.

Instead, he gets to watch (AND PAY FOR) Public Broadcasting (i.e. Government TV) and hear Shields and Brooks on rancor in the electorate and the future of the Supreme Court. Sheilds talks about what a great "closer" president Obama is and Brooks gets all eugenics friendly discussing how people are "voting their gene pool or whatever." It's just a horrible, horrible election as far as they're concerned because the Michael's of America are walking into the voting booth with the exact price of everything stuck in their brain - These talking heads are as nonplussed as any game show host would be when a ringer shows up to beat them at their own game.


DAVID BROOKS: We had a lot of good things over the years that were really good for America. I think globalization has been really good for America. I think the influx of immigrants has been really good for America. Feminism has been really good for America.
But there are a lot of people who used to be up in society, because of those three good things, are now down, a lot of high school-educated white guys. And they have been displaced.
And shame on us for not paying attention to that and helping them out. And, therefore, as a result, what happened was, they were alienated, they got super cynical, because they really were being shafted. And so they react in an angry way.
Well, that’s not a shock, given the last 30 or 50 years of American history. And so, for us going forward, it’s to not reverse the dynamism of American society and the diversity. It’s to pay attention to the people who are being ruined by it, and so this doesn’t happen again.
Too late David. Michael is in the house, he's up on stage and he's asking for the $500 you've been promising him for the past 30 years. Time to pay up. It's nice that you feel sorry for him and bad about the way you ignored him decade after decade while you transformed America for the better, but promises that you'll pay attention now - now that everything has been ruined - and that it will never happen again just don't hold much value. Prepare for a reckoning college educated rulers because the price is right and it will cost you more than words, just words.

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.

Who voted for this guy?

Who voted for this guy? It's been ten days since the results of the Maricopa County, Arizona ballot audit were released to the public and presented at a hearing held by the state senate. This exercise in democratic accountability had been going on for months and, if reports are to be believed, was completed well over a  month before the September 24th hearing where   overwhelming proof of an illegitimate election was presented to lawmakers . The audit showed multiple irregularities, fake ballots, duplicate counts, errors, omissions and egregious acts of sabotage and obstinance by the Maricopa County board of supervisors who did everything they could to withhold and destroy evidence of wrongdoing from the citizen sleuths. The misfeasance of Arizona's political leaders was clearly defined, shocking and (for some) beyond belief but somehow these facts were discovered, organized, packaged and suppressed for MONTHS by the Cyber Ninjas who were attempting to "get to the bottom&q

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.
