Chelsea Mourning

Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning 
And the first thing that I saw 
Was the sun through yellow curtains 
And a rainbow on the wall 
Blue, red, green and gold to welcome you 
Crimson crystal beads to beckon 
Oh, won't you stay  
We'll put on the day 
There's a sun show every second
In a America we have a concept called 'Civilian Control of the Military' which, though somewhat misunderstood. means that the democratically elected POTUS tells the army what to do. There's a reason he's called the commander-in-chief and that reason is that military leaders do what he commands (weather they like it or not) and live with the consequences. And because it's the military which operates by a very strict chain-of-command model the presidents orders trickle all the way down to lowly privates at Fort Leonard Wood or some shack in Iraq or anywhere else the US fighting force might be opening up a can of whoop-ass on this globe. If the leader of the free world decides to integrate the army, drop an atomic bomb, fire a decorated general, overthrow a government, carpet-bomb on Christmas, shoot down a satellite, allow for homosexual soldiers, put women in the trenches or pretty much anything else - it gets done STAT. The truth is that the Armed Services are probably the best measure of a president's capabilities because, unlike the economy, education and weather, it is the one institution of government he truly controls.

So it didn't surprise me when commander-in-chief Zed decided to pardon Chelsea Charms for espionage or treason or whatever it was the JAG lawyers pinned on her because a fish rots from the head and, in this case, the head knows it. Anyone familiar with the malnourished and abusive life that produced the 5 foot 2 inch gay techno-nerd named Bradly Manning can not be surprised that after a few months of basic training in 2007 the US Army was about to wash this diminutive troll out of the system (where he belonged) but decided to "recycle" him due to his IT skills. In Barack's army this worm was given top secret security clearance and despite physically attacking superior officers was allowed to continue collecting sensitive info and passing along videos and documents that threaten national security - Until he got caught, not by the army but by a hacker.
Some of what caused misery in Manning's life - his broken family, chronic loneliness, his homosexuality and gender-uncertainty - has been reported since his arrest at the isolated Forward Operating Base Hammer, near Baghdad, in May 2010. More sensational was the revelation at his pretrial hearing at the Fort Meade military complex in Maryland of just how much the military knew about his problems - and virtually ignored. 
So why was this Manning character "ignored" for so long by so many of his superiors?
Answer: He wasn't ignored, he was purposely evaded because everyone knew that confronting the obvious truth might jeopardize their careers. No lethal military force would have Bradly Manning working for it but in Barack's army if Bradley wants to become Chelsea then that's great because it makes shim feel better about shimself - a delusion shared by many but one for which, in hindsight, FBPOTUS must atone.

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.
