Bruce Jenner is California

I was talking with someone the other day about my impressions of Bruce Jenner from my teenage years (I was 14 when he won the decathlon at the 1976 Olympics) and the almost universal awe with which he was promoted during those years to young minds - like mine. His achievement was so amazing and wonderful (there's no other word for it) that you couldn't help but admire him and with his good looks, flowing locks and warm personality he really was an all American hero. Youngsters can't even imagine Jenner's place in the psychic imagination of a teenage boy from that era 1. because there's no one like him in today's sports world and 2. The Cold War Olympic Games carried real weight and to beat the Russians at one of "their" sports was a huge thing. What happened to this heroic man is analogous to what happened to his adopted home of California and their mutual transformation over the past 40 years is a crying shame.

Man and Woman

Caitlyn Jenner: 'I would seriously look at a run' for office and in California (s)he might actually have a shot at winning - probably the only Republican west of the I-5 with any popular support. This is a state that prevents alternate views from being voiced, refuses to comply with federal law, hates the Bill or Rights - basically it is a Trans-State. It used to be Red, White & Blue, All American and heroic but somewhere along the line it decided that it was some other place and started taking the drugs and weird plastic surgery to become that thing. Now it's a mess, not really America any more but not Mexico or any other country either. It's sad.

Just like there are men and women there is America and Mexico - no matter how much a man might want to be a woman he'll never make it. Grow his boobs, put on the lipstick, cut off his dick - the guy is still a dude. Go take a look at a real woman if you don't believe me. So shape up California and get with the program! You're American. You're part of the U.S.A. and you can't be anything else so start acting like it.

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work."

I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months viewershi…

The Democracy Quirk

Let it be said that Politico is one of the most worthless web sites with clout on the internet - it's like the Washington Post after a night of hard drinking in the Georgetown bars that passed out on a friends couch. Predictable and stupid at the same time - Also, the editors appear to despise democracy as a political science and as practiced here in the USA. Their latest "explanation" for the Trump phenomenon takes aim at the voters and their knowing ignorance which can be easily explained by the Dunning-Kruger Effect. The article written by shrink/educator David Dunning illuminates a big, glaring problem in any democracy, and that is, "we all run the risk of being too ill-informed to notice when our own favored candidates or national leaders make catastrophic misjudgments." Shit, now you tell us, for surely this is not a problem unique to 2016 and probably was in effect in 2000 and 1980 and 1968 and so on...
But as a psychologist who has studied human behavi…

Running Fence 2

You probably know that the Congress (specifically the Senate) and the POTUS are at loggerheads over Federal funding for the Big Beautiful Wall to be built along the US southern boarder. The reasons for this impasse are long and complex so a quick review of how we got here might be in order.

The Elvis from Queens glided down the escalator at Trump Tower (corner of 57th & 5th) and declared to America and the World that he intended to build A Great Wall across the southern boarder when he became POTUS because this alternate speech was never going to happen (KOTCB Alternate Universe 06/15/2015)A few weeks later candidate Trump was presented with a big fat brick of pain and suffering that served as the cornerstone of his campaign (KOTCB Dirty Sanchez)The physical Wall served as a curative slap in the face of the DC establishment who had, over the years, constructed an elaborate Folly Wall in place of the real thing (KOTCB Decius drops the mic)The idea of the Big Beautiful Wall began to…
