here come the warm jets

mullet over for awhile
We're down on our knees and we've nothing to say
Nothing to say
Nothing to say...

The hints have been dropping since the inauguration but now the day of atonement is upon us and my guess is that this thing is about to get real, real fast. Until now the knife fight has been shrewd with many lunges and feints - solid blows landed by both sides but eventually they were going to get close enough to grab each other by the neck and kill. The NYTimes set it up on Monday with Five Key Questions as a Government Shutdown Looms which was the high sign to everyone able to read between the lines that this thing is going to happen. While folks on the news shows and web sites were talking about NORKS and Ivanka the Hill and WH have been prepping for the shutdown. Pulling funding for the boarder wall, keeping funding in for Planned Parenthood and whatever "concessions" Trump made were simply tactical moves to pull talking points off the Democrats (and by extension the media's) page. Then Trump took the proactive step of  tweetstorming the Dems and letting them know what they'll get for the next... well, who knows how long?

It could be Labor Day before the government reopens. Don't believe me? Here's how the NYTimes explains it:
Republicans in Congress appear keenly aware that a shutdown would be blamed largely on them, despite Mr. Trump’s attempts to shift responsibility to Democrats.
And while many are unlikely to say so publicly, some Democrats would plainly relish the political upside of a unified Republican government ushering in Mr. Trump’s 100th day by failing to keep the lights on.
Yeah, "some" Democrats would like to give Trump a black eye on his 100th day in office and that's exactly what "some" Democrats are going to do. The truth is that it really doesn't matter who relents on budget priorities and who doesn't because this deadlock isn't concerned with finding a way to work out differences and fulfill the will of the people (or the will of anyone) - it's a decision to stop Trump cold and wipe out his presidency. A battle of wills and a test of who can be more cunning and ruthless. My money is on Trump, but I have to admit that the Democrats have everything to lose - this is their last battle for the foreseeable future if Trump wins so they'll probably fight with everything they've got. Unfortunately for them Trump has more than a Twitter account these days - he's got Tomahawk missiles, MOAB, ICBMs and other stuff to throw at crazies all over the world. I think the jets will be flying over Syria and North Korea soon - (and while you're at it president Trump, would you please drop a few bombs on Venezuela).

The Elvis from Queens will bring them to their knees and make them beg for mercy. Beg and weep and rend their garment offering anything - ANYTHING - if he will just open their Government again. "For Christ's sake Mr. President, it's already October and the US Government is still shut down! We've offered to fund the boarder wall. We've defunded Planned Parenthood. We've let you fire the Ninth Circuit. We've torn up the Iran deal. We've repealed and replaced Obamacare. What else do we need to do to satisfy your demands? Please Mr. President, please... have mercy... forgive us...".

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.

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. This list

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.
