This is the final part of Kid with Lid and Paris who are joined by Alex at his 1st CPAC

At the end of their time Kid with Lid showed me a video of the various witches casting their hex on Donald Trump. By an odd coincidence I had the Catholic exorcism prayer for lay people so in the next segment I prayed it, however I didn’t think it proper to video tape something that serious, the audio is here

But as soon as the prayer was done it was time to turn on the camera and talk to Izzy

Once Izzy was done things got interesting but that a story for tomorrow.

There is plenty more from CPAC coming over the next couple of weeks, but what is also going to be coming are a lot of hospital bills and debt from work that both my wife and I are going to be missing because of the complications from her “routine” surgery.

If you are able and inclined to help mitigate them I’d ask you to consider hitting DaTipJar

I talked to new media folk Kid with Lid and Paris on the 2nd session of DaTechGuy’s midnight court we have part one

and part 2

The reason why there was a part 2 was because I dropped the camera as I was holding the mic with one hand and the mic with the other.

Here is the audio

(the audio includes part 3)

Last night I watched a Canal Plus video from its Petit Journal program interviewing a darling little boy. Canal Plus banned it on YouTube for copyright reasons but you can watch it at the HuffPo, which also translated:

In an interview posted by the French news broadcast Le Petit Journal on Monday, a reporter asks a young French boy if he understands why terrorists attacked Paris on Friday, killing at least 129 people and injuring 350.

“Yes, because they’re very very very mean,” the boy replies. “The bad guys aren’t very nice. And we really have to be careful because we have to change homes.”

His dad coaxes him, saying, “No, don’t worry, we don’t have to change homes. France is our home.”

“But there are bad guys, Daddy!” the boy says.

“Yes, but there are bad guys everywhere,” his father counters. 

“They have guns, they can shoot at us because they have guns and are bad,” the boy continues. 

“Well, they have guns, but we have flowers,” the father says.

“But flowers don’t do anything,” the boy argues.

“See all the flowers?” his dad asks. “They’re to fight against the guns.”

“Are they there to protect?” the boy asks. “The candles too?”

“There you go,” his dad says. “It’s to not forget those who left us yesterday.”

“The flowers and the candles,” the boy concludes, “they’re there to protect us.” 

The reporter jumps back in and asks the boy, “So are you feeling better?”

“Yep,” he says. I’m feeling better.”

Now, I understand that Le Petit Journal is a program interviewing kids, and that Dad may be having a Kumbaya moment in front of the cameras not to alarm the little kids in the audience, but . . . my reaction was “ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND, DAD?”

Even the five-year old (excuse me for the guess, he may be older) is aware of the fact that “flowers don’t do anything,” other than, perhaps, give you a feel-good moment.

You may recall that last January 7 Islamist terrorists killed the Charlie Hebdo staff. Last Friday’s massacre was also well-planned, premeditated, and meant to be an attack on civil society, be it in France or anywhere in the world. Like Friday’s attack, the victims were unarmed.

Like there were in January, there are now a lot of public displays of grief, with flowers, candles and sundry tchotchkes, including a guy who carried his piano on his bicycle so he could play Imagine in front of the Bataclan, where five score people were massacred.

Like in January, the perpetrators inflicted chaos on a people who could not imagine what they were up to:
Nothing is a more reliable indicator of a lack of imagination than singing “Imagine”.

While we were “living for today”, Islam was playing for tomorrow. When you sing “Imagine”, you’re saying you can’t imagine anything beyond the torpor of the moment. You can’t imagine that there are people who don’t think as you do, and who regard the cobwebbed boomer-pop solidarity as confirmation of nothing more than your flaccid passivity.

Our enemies understand how myopic we are. They attack a concert by Eagles of Death Metal, which is not without a certain blood-soaked irony: In our world, “death metal” is a genre at iTunes. [UPDATE: Those who know these things tell me Eagles of Death Metal is not a “death metal” band, which I suppose makes the name an ironic commentary upon a genre at iTunes.] In our enemies’ world, the term is literal: They bring real death metal to our “death metal” concerts, and pile high the corpses. In our world, it’s all pose and attitude. In theirs, these words still have meaning.

As I write this post, the police were met with heavy gunfire (in a gun-free zone) as they raided an apartment in their search for Friday’s mastermind.

The HuffPo weeps that “only love can protect Paris.” Let’s hope things don’t get to the point that only Patton’s army can protect Paris, because this time – with Secretary of State Kerry conceding “legitimacy” to terrorists’ motives – Patton isn’t coming.

There will be a lot more flowers on the graves.
