The prison of life

The prison of life is one we never fully escape. Even the spiritual yogi, the rich oligarch, the nihilist  pop star and (believe it or not) college professors must all stoop to clean up a mess from time to time - trapped as we are in this mortal and material cell. Be that as it may, some cells are worse than others.


Don't spend your life cleaning

A wishful bit of advise from those who sell toxic scrubbing suds to ease the burden of which every life is consumed. But scrubbing is drudgery - with or without miracle cream - and for the vast expanse of human history drudgery is what life was spent doing. Enter the machine.


The machine "works pretty well" and though it won't take all the work out of prison life ("you still need to push") it does clean things up in an impressive manner and with its extension handles and multiple cleaning brushes it can wipe up almost any mess.

So the decision everyone has to make is between living on your hands and knees soaking in a toxic stew or spending $39.99 for a blue and white plastic power scrubber that does the hard work for you.

"The world is a mess, David."


The secret to finding joy in this prison is to accept the fact that you'll do your time cleaning and that cleaning is fun, good for the soul and makes your neighbor happy. Some people like cleaning things up and making them tidy and those people created the machine to help them do it. The benefits of this machine are manifold and so integrated into our daily existence that most people don't even contemplate the wonder and efficiency they provide - or the sweet illusion of liberty they create for the inmates.
<TRUMP>: Because we are -- we are excluding certain countries, but for other countries, we're going to have extreme vetting. It's going to be very hard to come in. Right now, it's very easy to come in. It's going to be very, very hard. I don't want terror in this country. You look at what happened in San Bernardino. You look at what happened all over. You look at what happened in the World Trade Center, OK? I mean, take that as an example. People don't even bring that up.
MUIR: Are you at all concerned -- are you at all concerned it's going to cause more anger among Muslims around the world?
<TRUMP>: Anger? There's plenty of anger right now. How can you have more?
MUIR: You don't think it will exacerbate the problem?
<TRUMP>: Look, look, David, David, I mean, I know you're a sophisticated guy. The world is a mess. The world is as angry as it gets. What, you think this is going to cause a little more anger? The world is an angry place. All of this has happened. We went into Iraq. We shouldn't have gone into Iraq. We shouldn't have gotten out the way we got out. The world is a total mess. The world is a mess, David.
The world is a mess and it's about to get cleaned up big time.  And the biggest mess, worldwide, for the past 35 years has been caused by the followers of Ali - home base Tehran, Iran. Many commentators are wondering, why pick these 7 backwater nations for "extreme vetting" when all of the terrorists come from Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Turkey and other Muslim countries NOT on the extreme vetting list. The reason is simple - Shia Islam fuels the Sunni terror impulse and ignites the mindless rage that rips middle eastern counties apart and spills over into the western world. You want to mop up terrorism? Apply the machine to the Shia, hit the power button, push hard and watch what 300 revolutions per minute can do.

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.
