Observations From the Back Row

By Rich Kozlovich

There's so much going on that's so outrageous, so dangerous, and so demented with societies all around the world it's almost become impossible to keep up with it.  I've saved untold numbers of articles in drafts on just about ever subject we see in the news.   I've files on the attack on Justice Thomas and SCOTUS, the Durham Report, China's war with the world, Russia and the complex relationship with the EU and America, and so on.  

At times I find I have so much I can't decide what to write about, which is where I am right now, especially since I have so many tasks outside with my gardens and various summer projects. I'm having time issues, because writing a worthwhile commentary on each and every one of these issues is actually quite time consuming.  

I wrote an article about bed bugs and sleeping sickness a number of years ago and it took ten hours, most of that dealt with researching the information as thoroughly as possible.  That's the time killer, and then organizing it properly deciding what to use and what to throw away is not only time consuming, it's a bit agonizing.  Deciding what's relevant and what's was accurate takes time, and some material is really great but not relevant and has to be painfully discarded, or saved for a future piece.

Also, reviewing a complicated article the next day is important, at least I think it is.  After a day has passed you can catch any errors in logic and fact, and any spelling that needs correcting.  

So, I'm going to take the easy way out and list pieces that I think are relevant to understanding what's really going on.  Let's start with this piece, which I found worth a chuckle or two. 

London Breed holds presser in SF junkie nest to denounce fentanyl, gets chased out by violent, screaming mob..... From the annals of 'What was she thinking,' here's San Francisco's mayor, London Breed............San Francisco Mayor London Breed and the city’s board of supervisors were forced to retreat inside after a meeting they attempted to hold in a notorious open-air drug market was disrupted by jeers, shouting and a woman who hurled a brick into the crowd, according to a report............You don't go into a tiger's lair to talk about how you'll be taming the tigers. You don't go into a terrorist den and denounce terrorism if you have anything resembling a brain. And you especially don't go into an open-air drug market, full of dealers and their customers, to talk about how you'll be ending the fentanyl crisis, putting junkies in compelled treatment, and shutting the scene down because "everyone" opposes this activity.

One of the things these leftist nitwits never seem to understand is when you create an unstable society, that society will act unstable, and right now, and they're shocked when all that instability turns on them, and that includes most of San Francisco.  

Breed and her foolish fellow leftists leading the nation's major cities have destroyed those cities, and they're not coming back any time soon.  Portland, Seattle, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and a host of other major cities run by Democrats are turning into hellholes of drugs and violence.  That can't be turned around easily or quickly, and  I don't think it can be turned around at all.    Here's the trend in Cleveland.  I love this town and intend to spend the rest of my life here, but the fact remains, some things have changed, dramatically, and it's disturbing.  In 1965 Cleveland's population was 1,875,000. As of July of 2022 it was 361,607.  Whites make up only 38% of the population, blacks 47% and are still granted minority status. Violent crime in Cleveland is 17.4 per 1000.  In all of Ohio it's only 3.76 and nationwide it's 4.  

That's the pattern nationwide, and much worse in cities like San Francisco.  The result?  Businesses are leaving and they're not coming back. Large downtown office buildings have huge vacancy rates that makes it impossible to maintain those buildings.   With the internet, it's easier and cheaper to permanently move to suburbs or small towns where stupid politicians aren't fouling everything with stupid restrictive regulations and taxes.  Who's to blame?

 The Democratic Party of today is the party of crime and lawlessness, the party of mobs, unchecked illegal immigration, runaway government spending, late-term abortion, and government overreach. The Democratic Party lacks any accountability, yet they abuse governmental powers to suppress those who dare to oppose their opinions,” …Egline McArdle, Chairwoman, W.Va., Republican Party.

What could possibly go wrong?

Well, a lot.  The nitwit governor of  North Carolina has declared a "State of Emergency"!  And it's over what?  This piece by Nancy Andersen notes this governor loves his veto pen and he loves "State of Emergencies".  During this false pandemic he locked down all the schools and churches!  Put masks on.... students”......and kept the schools closed.  

But he knows who butters his bread, and has declared another "State of Emergency", to prevent all those "evil [Republican] legislators from giving parents educational options.  They are killing government schools, because giving parents options and having our schools compete for excellence is not fair!"  Well, in most states the legislature can overturn these political "States of Emergency" with a simple majority vote.  But, we'll see.  Oh, yes, one more thing.  Where does this governor send his kids?  

“If he believed so much in public education, why did he spend thousands for his own kid to avoid it?” …”What a hypocrite. Public schools aren’t good enough for his kids, but they are for yours,” Independent Women’s Forum senior policy analyst Kelsey Bolar blasted."...."Here’s another story that reveals additional school choice hypocrites such as Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Gavin Newsom, and J.B. Pritzker."

Then we have the default hysteria.  Jack Hellner, who I think is a great writer, published this piece in American Thinker today, The Biden admin, with the help of the complicit media, sure pretends a lot, saying:

Janet Yellen has been screaming about the dire consequences for months if the Biden administration didn’t get a clean debt ceiling increase. Now she admits that her department, that pays the bills, hasn't done a thing to prepare, which shows they aren't worried or don't care.

Let's face it, the left lives on hysteria, lies, corruption, media complicity to keep everyone ignorant and scared.  It's not working as easily as it used to because now there's an alternative media, and that media is now becoming more and more preeminent over a corrupt main stream media that's losing viewership and readership in a spectacular fashion, and Fox is an example of that. 

We're seeing outright and obvious voter fraud,  which includes an incredibly deep corruption of our government law enforcement entities, corruption of the media, corruption of our system of commerce, almost total and complete corruption of our scientific community, our system ofit's clearer every day which party is radical, extreme, dangerous, and flat out crazy.

The question left to answer is: Can democracy be saved?  Given the observations made in this article, the answer is there may will be a civil war on the horizon to save the republic.
