Moment for moment

Twitter Moments are like little tweet stories for writers -  when 140 characters just won't do the trick you can create a moment to get your point across and that's what Beau Willimon of House of Cards fame did yesterday. One wonders what Mr. Willimon was trying to "get at" when he tackled the issue of Islamic inspired terror in the TV program he created - at least he stayed away from it in Season 1 or Season 2  - because it would have been the perfect platform to show how "WE" can "lead by example" again like we did for the 16 years of the Bush/Obama era. But his message even then, while the light worker was working his magic, was "WE are the terror" and now he's calling on "WE" the #resist movement to remember that wonderful time. It appears that @BeauWillimon finds Donald J Trump even more terrible than "we are the terror" Frank Underwood and that somehow "WE" (I assume he's talking about We the People) need to find a way back to September 12th 2001 when the world community was feeling sorry for us and the whole nation pulled together to pick ourselves up off the floor. Remember that? And I'm not talking to anyone 20 years old or younger because you won't know what the hell I'm talking about - all you know is arguing and accusation about Islam, the war on terror, who's at fault and all the rest of it - but you oldsters probably remember the national unity, American flags, bi-partisan standing ovations and love of country. Let's put it this way, nobody was kneeling on the sidelines for the singing of the National Anthem in the Autumn of 2001. Young or old you're probably asking yourself, "What did Vladimir Putin and Steve Bannon do to change the national mood of comity and fidelity that's brought us to this perilous place?" In attempting to answer that question I had a little Twitter Moment myself today and I think you should probably read it. It kind of answers all the questions and addresses all the lies that people like Beau Willimon spread from their perch on the jagged mountain of popular culture.

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.
