Obligatory Post On Ferguson

Fred put it best:

"Methinks there cometh three horsemen of a sorry apocalypse: First, blacks are again rioting, looting, and burning. Second, the media are as usual lying, interpreting, concealing. Third, swatted-out heavies of a bush-league police force knock reporters around, arresting them for nothing, and refusing to reveal their identities. We are seeing the birth of a nation."

I have no idea what really went down in Ferguson. But I realize that rioting, burning, and looting - again - is a tactic that has just about run its course. America grows weary of this sort of lawlessness. 

This is what I expect:  If that cop is guilty, we will hear about it for years. If that cop is innocent, this incident will vanish into the night, never to be mentioned again.

Fred says another thing we should consider:

"We need to realize, but will not, that blacks are a separate people, self-aware and cohesive. They have their own dialect, music, and modes of dress, which they value. They name their kids LaToya and Keeshawn instead of Robert and Carol because they want to maintain a distance from whites.

The races spring from utterly different cultures. Compulsory integration is thus a form of social imperialism in which whites try to force blacks to conform to European norms. Blacks have no historical connection at all to Greece, Rome, the Old Testament Hebrews, Christianity, the Middle Ages, the Enlightenment, Industrial Revolution, to Newton, LaGrange, or Galois, to the philosophic tradition of Thales, Aquinas, Schopenhauer, or Hegel. Nor do Eurowhites have roots in Africa. No commonality exists.

However, according to the liberal mantra, there is no such thing as "race", We are all just humans - all the same - physically and intellectually. The only criteria, the only standard we can use to determine differing personal outcomes, is opportunity or the lack thereof.  A naked blowgun wielding bushman hunting monkeys in New Guinea - if given the same opportunities Einstein had - would have also developed the theory of relatively.

Who really believes that?

Fred concludes:

"Ethnic mixing doesn’t work, gang. Not Moslems and Parisians, Irish Catholics and Protestants, Shias and Sunnis, Indonesians and Chinese, nor even New Yorkers and Alabamans. We think it should work, insist that it will, punish those who observe that it doesn’t. Yet still it doesn’t work. The greater the difference between groups, the less well it works. If we realized this, and let people do as they choose, the country would be much better off."

Ferguson is yet another example of that.

This Would Be Fun To Watch

MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service say that nudists are scaring off rare birds on Passage Key.
The Passage Key was established to protect native birds and serve as a breeding ground for them, but recently has been home to sandbars and is a popular destination for nudists.
“It is a federal crime to walk on the island,” a Fish and Wildlife Service spokesperson told WFLA-TV. “Nudists are allowed to wade in the water off-shore, but are prohibited by law from being on the island.”

If I were a nudist that scared off birds, I think I'd change hobbies.

As an aside:

It's a FEDERAL CRIME to walk on the island.

But if you're wading in a inch of water, you are good to go.(maybe. See -2) below).

The stupidity of bureaucrats is often beyond measure.

Your homework for the weekend:

-1) Define off-shore.

-2) Determine how much water is required by the federal government for you to be legally "wading".

-3) Figure out what is meant mean by the phrase "home to sandbars". What kind of home does a sandbar require?

Or, just shake your head and walk away.

It Couldn't Be Much Clearer

Or easier to understand...

This is what scientists have found out about the recent heating/cooling cycles on planet earth with no political bull crap coloring the data.

Please don't show this to a Gaia worshiping unicorn loving rainbow colored warmist. It won't ruin their day, they will just ignore it...  but they will attack and call you a racist homophobe or something.

And then walk off in a snit.

Sorry, I shouldn't say things like that. We should instead pity the fools.

Fred Is Getting Nervous

Fred comments about things in America:

"A sort of insanity rules, warning of stress building along many political San Andreas faults waiting for the Big One. A pathologically aggressive United States bombs countries almost at random while little boys are dragged from school in handcuffs for pointing a finger and saying “Bang.”  Girls suffer from bulimia and anorexia, lunacies nonexistent in psychically healthy societies. A crack-brained feminism makes cockamamie circuses of the universities. Bastardy runs at a perilous thirty percent among white women, verging on cultural disintegration, and seventy percent among blacks. The epicene young grow in sheltered, meaningless hothouse-suburbs, never having worked, baited a hook, been in a schoolyard fight, or existed outside of a feckless bored helplessness.
From the cellars come prancing homosexuals, men in dresses and panties, the surgically altered inverts and sadomasochistic hobbyists. The high schools are become drug markets, differing only slightly from the middle schools. Life is a cabaret, old chum, here in Caligula’s bedroom."

He further opines:

"Below this seething maelstrom of degeneracy lie dangerous shoals of cultural conservatism, of people who believe in two sexes and birth within wedlock and orderly society obedient to law. They are quietly very, very angry at seeing everything they stand for eaten away by the multi-culti, touchy-feely, everything-goes miasma emanating from Washington. They speak of personal responsibility, learning the multiplication tables, English as the national language, and no toleration of crime-- and they know who commits it. Whether you think them simple-minded and fascist or wholesome and self-reliant defines which side of the gaping cultural divide you inhabit."

Fred says much more at www.

He ends with "In America, something is going to happen." He just doesn't know when, or what.

Stock up on the popcorn ilk... It's going to be quite a show when all this comes to a head.

Next Weeks big News Story

Thursday at the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health hearing titled, "Combating the Ebola threat," Samaritan's Purse's vice president of programs and government relations Ken Isaacs said, "Ebola is out of control in West Africa".

At the end of the hearing Isaacs said, "We will see death tolls and numbers we can't imagine right now."

If you don't believe this, check it out for yourself.

I see two possibilities: -1) Mr. Isaacs is trying to warn us all of a pandemic disaster on the horizon,  or -2) He's just another fear-mongering S.O.B. that loves to keep us all scared.

We have around 340 Peace Corps volunteers scrambling for home at this very minute from the affected areas in Africa. And that's just a small number of the people who are in a mad rush to escape.

Who wants to bet on how many that may be affected will slip in undetected?

What Jobs

According to a major new report from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), net employment growth in the United States since 2000 has gone entirely to immigrants, legal and illegal. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, CIS scholars Steven A. Camarota and Karen Zeigler found that there were 127,000 fewer working-age natives holding a job in the first quarter of 2014 than in 2000, while the number of immigrants with a job was 5.7 million above the 2000 level.
The rapidity with which immigrants recovered from the Great Recession, as well as the fact that they held a disproportionate share of jobs relative to their share of population growth before the recession, help to explain their findings, the authors report. In addition, native-born Americans and immigrants were affected differently by the recession.

Food for Thought

Every one of us should read this letter from a dying Iraqi Vet:

To: George W. Bush and Dick Cheney
From: Tomas Young
I write this letter on the 10th anniversary of the Iraq War on behalf of my fellow Iraq War veterans. I write this letter on behalf of the 4,488 soldiers and Marines who died in Iraq. I write this letter on behalf of the hundreds of thousands of veterans who have been wounded and on behalf of those whose wounds, physical and psychological, have destroyed their lives. I am one of those gravely wounded. I was paralyzed in an insurgent ambush in 2004 in Sadr City. My life is coming to an end. I am living under hospice care.
I write this letter on behalf of husbands and wives who have lost spouses, on behalf of children who have lost a parent, on behalf of the fathers and mothers who have lost sons and daughters and on behalf of those who care for the many thousands of my fellow veterans who have brain injuries. I write this letter on behalf of those veterans whose trauma and self-revulsion for what they have witnessed, endured and done in Iraq have led to suicide and on behalf of the active-duty soldiers and Marines who commit, on average, a suicide a day. I write this letter on behalf of the some 1 million Iraqi dead and on behalf of the countless Iraqi wounded. I write this letter on behalf of us all—the human detritus your war has left behind, those who will spend their lives in unending pain and grief.
I write this letter, my last letter, to you, Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney. I write not because I think you grasp the terrible human and moral consequences of your lies, manipulation and thirst for wealth and power. I write this letter because, before my own death, I want to make it clear that I, and hundreds of thousands of my fellow veterans, along with millions of my fellow citizens, along with hundreds of millions more in Iraq and the Middle East, know fully who you are and what you have done. You may evade justice but in our eyes you are each guilty of egregious war crimes, of plunder and, finally, of murder, including the murder of thousands of young Americans—my fellow veterans—whose future you stole.
Your positions of authority, your millions of dollars of personal wealth, your public relations consultants, your privilege and your power cannot mask the hollowness of your character. You sent us to fight and die in Iraq after you, Mr. Cheney, dodged the draft in Vietnam, and you, Mr. Bush, went AWOL from your National Guard unit. Your cowardice and selfishness were established decades ago. You were not willing to risk yourselves for our nation but you sent hundreds of thousands of young men and women to be sacrificed in a senseless war with no more thought than it takes to put out the garbage.
I joined the Army two days after the 9/11 attacks. I joined the Army because our country had been attacked. I wanted to strike back at those who had killed some 3,000 of my fellow citizens. I did not join the Army to go to Iraq, a country that had no part in the September 2001 attacks and did not pose a threat to its neighbors, much less to the United States. I did not join the Army to “liberate” Iraqis or to shut down mythical weapons-of-mass-destruction facilities or to implant what you cynically called “democracy” in Baghdad and the Middle East. I did not join the Army to rebuild Iraq, which at the time you told us could be paid for by Iraq’s oil revenues. Instead, this war has cost the United States over $3 trillion. I especially did not join the Army to carry out pre-emptive war. Pre-emptive war is illegal under international law. And as a soldier in Iraq I was, I now know, abetting your idiocy and your crimes. The Iraq War is the largest strategic blunder in U.S. history. It obliterated the balance of power in the Middle East. It installed a corrupt and brutal pro-Iranian government in Baghdad, one cemented in power through the use of torture, death squads and terror. And it has left Iran as the dominant force in the region. On every level—moral, strategic, military and economic—Iraq was a failure. And it was you, Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney, who started this war. It is you who should pay the consequences.
I would not be writing this letter if I had been wounded fighting in Afghanistan against those forces that carried out the attacks of 9/11. Had I been wounded there I would still be miserable because of my physical deterioration and imminent death, but I would at least have the comfort of knowing that my injuries were a consequence of my own decision to defend the country I love. I would not have to lie in my bed, my body filled with painkillers, my life ebbing away, and deal with the fact that hundreds of thousands of human beings, including children, including myself, were sacrificed by you for little more than the greed of oil companies, for your alliance with the oil sheiks in Saudi Arabia, and your insane visions of empire.
I have, like many other disabled veterans, suffered from the inadequate and often inept care provided by the Veterans Administration. I have, like many other disabled veterans, come to realize that our mental and physical wounds are of no interest to you, perhaps of no interest to any politician. We were used. We were betrayed. And we have been abandoned. You, Mr. Bush, make much pretense of being a Christian. But isn’t lying a sin? Isn’t murder a sin? Aren’t theft and selfish ambition sins? I am not a Christian. But I believe in the Christian ideal. I believe that what you do to the least of your brothers you finally do to yourself, to your own soul.
My day of reckoning is upon me. Yours will come. I hope you will be put on trial. But mostly I hope, for your sakes, that you find the moral courage to face what you have done to me and to many, many others who deserved to live. I hope that before your time on earth ends, as mine is now ending, you will find the strength of character to stand before the American public and the world, and in particular the Iraqi people, and beg for forgiveness.

Coming To a home Near You. Maybe YOURS.

Oh goody...

Those "precious" children swarming across our borders are bringing  a host of future contagious disease outbreaks with them.

The Scabies mite. A passenger on many border-jumping illegals.

From WND:
Health professionals are warning of a “humanitarian crisis” festering in Texas and Arizona as a result of unchecked border crossings of illegal-immigrant children into border communities.
Cramped conditions and the spread of difficult-to-treat diseases has doctors worried in the wake of a massive influx of children coming across the Mexican-U.S. border, many of them from Central and South America. Outbreaks of scabies, lice, dengue fever, tuberculosis and other diseases – many of them contagious – are already being documented among the children and in some border agents who work among them.

* * * * * * * * * *  * *

What the hell is wrong with those lunatics in Washington?  We're all fairly used to their wingnut projects and screwball programs, but at the very least we expect them to protect our citizens from things like third world diseases and contagions.

Send them back. Send them all back  Put them on boats or planes and ship them back to the nation that they belong to. They are not our responsibility and certainly should  not be our problem. Sending them back will cost us far less in the long run. We don't have the money, the space, or the ability to absorb these border-jumping criminals.

Yes, jumping our border is a crime, and a foreign minor sneaking into the United States harboring contagious tuberculosis can be - and is - a criminal.

Allowing them to stay here and encouraging them to get here is about the dumbest thing Washington has come up with lately.  the Department of Homeland Security (LOL) needs to get its nose out of the terrorist threat mantra and start paying attention to the contagious disease threat posed by these third world  rejects. Send them back to where they came from. Let their own governments step up to the plate and stop dumping their problems on our doorstep.

I agree with the new majority that Obama is simply not up to task of leading the nation. We need to get rid of him.

Impeach and convict. We can weather that idiot Biden for a couple years while we search for some real leaders.

Now We Know Why

I'm sure you noticed and perhaps, like myself,  was stunned by the blatant arrogance and contempt displayed by this women while being questioned about her actions at the IRS.

Lois Learner... knew she had her back covered

Now we know what she already knew. Her hard drive containing all her E-mails had been destroyed.

From National review Online:
It is also part of a broader problem: Government record-keeping practices aren’t very good. At the IRS, servers are backed up for only six months and more permanent record keeping is, it appears, an individual responsibility, with agency employees instructed to print hard copies of documents that may be subject to freedom of information requests." 

Can you believe that? ";;; instructed to print hard copies of documents that may be subject to freedom of information requests." Oh hell yes, that's the stuff they would destroy first, then destroy the hard drives. In six months, nothing would be left. Even the servers are wiped.

So there she sat, confident and arrogant, looking down her nose at Congress, because she - being no dummy - knew the evidence was gone.

Match, set and game. Over before it began.

Now we are being told that six or more other hard drives with e-mails about the same subject have also been lost or destroyed.

Learner is not the tip of the iceberg, she's just a snowflake on the top of the tip, but a protected snowflake... insulated from prosecution,  untouchable, above the law. And she knows - like every other crooked politician in Washington -  there are no Bob Lee Swaggers anywhere around.

That's why she sat there with that look of utter contempt on her face.

How To Spin The Facts On Anything

For example... water:

(click on to biggify)

My favorite is the last one:

100 percent of all people exposed to water will DIE!

Lots more where that came from...

100 percent of all people exposed to oxygen will DIE!
100 percent of all people exposed to vitamin C will DIE!
100 percent of all people exposed to sunlight will DIE!
100 percent of all people who use toothpaste will DIE!

I could go on forever.  Point is, don't take all those "facts" bandied about by Global Warmers,  the EPA, liberals, Democrats, Republicans, Progressives -  ad nauseam - seriously... All their "facts" have been tailored to fit their particular message which is always designed to give that group advantage over everyone else.

There is no doubt  that a few among the ignorant and uneducated that read the above "facts" about water will try to avoid it at all costs because water is deadly. It is, but only under the right circumstances.

It's often a hassle, but before you ride off with banners flying over some new "fact", do a bit of checking first. It  can save a lot of future embarrassment and backtracking.
