I love pirates


I've always had a soft spot in my brain for pirates. From Sir Francis Drake (circumnavigated the globe) to Donald J. Trump I just can't get enough of them and have studied their exploits and instructed my children on their methods and motivations that they might become something of a pirate themselves. The brotherhood (and sisterhood) of these outliers is worthy of emulation and the live free or die (and many did die) ethos must be inculcated at a young age before life has a chance to beat you down into an office cube and annual spring vacation to some exotic local where licentious debauchery is your only release from the mundane paper shuffling that consumes your "life." The sad fate of Captain Kidd, the barbarity of L'Olonnais, the scrappy opportunism of Calico Jack and his shipmates Anne Bonnie and Marry Reid have been recited and, if I do say so myself, enhanced in hours of parental instruction to my young charges. I have paid particular attention to the stories of Thomas Tew and Edward Teach (AKA Blackbeard) as heroic and cautionary role models respectively for I love their courage and Americanism above all else. So when I saw this story about controversy in Mexico I figured it was just gringo's drunk on Mexican hooch during their two weeks "off" (i.e. on vacation), or should I say out, of their cube.
CANCUN — What would be a dream night for Suly and Anaximandro Amable, a newly married couple who went to Cancun for their honeymoon, became a bitter experience on Monday March 13.
During a family show on the high seas, young American spring breakers began to sing the controversial “Build That Wall” chant, which shocked Mexican national tourists and workers.
This is just one of the many blameworthy behaviors that young spring breakers have shown recently in Cancun and that are described as acts of xenophobia and discrimination against Mexicans within their own country, which is (or should be) totally unacceptable.
But then I saw a commentary on the event in question on The Nation web site and learned that all this xenophobic chanting occurred on a pirate ship and it all made sense.
"Those kids in Cancún were raised on what is in effect a giant pirate ship masquerading as a country, the children of unending war, taught to believe that their jurisdiction is universal, their writ is global, even as their resentment—a feeling that they live in a nation under siege—is exceptional. Build that wall."
Yes, America is one giant pirate ship, now go swab the deck you left-wing pansy pencil-necked land lubbers. You guys at The Nation must never have been south of the border to that jewel of civic minded harmony called Cancun (or Cancún as you like to say it) because if you had you'd be shouting Build The Wall at the top of your revolutionary red lungs. On the list of The 10 Worst Spring Break Hell Holes Cancun is number 1 and I can promise you that, were they ever to spend time there, everyone affiliated with The Nation would despise the place and figure out some way to blame the USA for what they experienced there. Thank God there are enough clear eyed and, I assume, well educated Americans visiting Cancun to see the place for what it is and demand a wall be constructed to keep whatever political and cultural stew that created it from spilling over the boarder and creating this "hell hole" on the US mainland.

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.
