On the Fact that (According to Economist, Edward Pinto) 76% of the Subprime Loans in the U.S. at the Time of the Housing Crisis in 2008 Were on the Books of Government Agencies; Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA, HUD, etc.
And yet we still have partisan idiots like Krugman going around saying that the crisis wasn't at all caused by government policies. Unbelievable, huh?

On the Fact that (According to Economist, Marion L. Tupy) the Number of People Living in Absolute Poverty in South Africa Has Doubled Since the ANC Came to Power in 1994
Further proof that the ANC has ruined the country.......Dead or poor, take your pick.
On the Fact (Well, Opinion) that 90% of the Better Songs from the Rolling Stones' Phenomenal Musical Canon Were Penned and Recorded Prior to 1973
I guess that rock and roll truly is a young person's musical genre.
On the Fact that WW2 Was Initially Referred to as "The War for the Independence and Freedom of Poland"
Mission - not accomplished. History - rearranged (AKA sanitized).

On the Fact that the De Beers Diamond Company Was Forced by the ANC Government to Create a Black-Controlled Diamond Mining Company
And the chairman of this new mining company? Yeah, it's an influential senior member of the ANC; a fellow by the name of Manne Dipico (personal advantage derived from political influence clearly the norm). In the now famous words of Gomer Pyle, "Surprise! Surprise!"
On the Fact that Syracuse Is Apparently Considering Recently Dismissed Miami Coach, Al Golden, as Their Next Football Coach
He couldn't win with the talent down there (yes, he was a good recruiter). How's he gonna win at the 'Cuse?...Bad idea.
"Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedies."......Now THIS is a Marx who I agree with............................................................................................P.S. The most obvious example of this is of course anthropogenic global warming; the fact that governments have tried to pin what has been a modest temperature increase (.7 degree Celsius) over the past 130 years on human-induced CO2 when we all know that that's patently ludicrous (the fact that a significant chunk of the warming took place in '20s and '30s - well before the massive increase in man-made carbon emissions, the fact that CO2 has a strong logarithmic relationship with atmospheric warming, the fact that feedbacks in natural systems are almost invariably negative, the fact that the increases in CO2 have only correlated with the thermally-induced CO2, the fact that global sea-ice has essentially been a flat line for 30 years, etc., etc.) and then tried to "fix" this nonexistent problem with moronic green energy solutions such as ethanol (.05 watts per square meter and wind turbines ( a watt per square meter) and a cap and trade scheme that has only benefited big bankers and other fat-cats.
Economist (and Former Adviser to Gorbachev), Yuri Maltzev, on His Experience Working for The Soviet Government
"Working is a serious overstatement of my activities there."......So, kind of like here but much worse, in other words.

On the Fact that (According to Writer and South African Exile, Ilana Mercer) Every Year Millions of Rands in Taxpayers' Money Are Paid Out to Private Security Companies to Protect South Africa's Police Stations
There is so much absurdity in this world that I sometimes get anesthetized by it. But THIS is so ridiculous that even I had to chuckle. THE COPS CAN'T EVEN DEFEND THEIR OWN DAMNED POLICE STATIONS!!!......Yet another ANC success story, folks.
On the Fact that (According to Economist, Brian Riedl) the Vast Majority of Farm Assistance Goes to Commercial Farmers with an Average Income of $200,000 and an Average Net Worth of $2,000,000 - Quick Addendum
Not that these farm subsidies are a huge part of the overall budget, but five billion here and five billion there it really does start to add up and if the two parties can't agree that this bullshit should be cut, heaven help us.
On the Fact that (According to Economist, Brian Riedl) the Vast Majority of Farm Assistance Goes to Commercial Farmers with an Average Income of $200,000 and an Average Net Worth of $2,000,000
And these are 2007 figures. Frightening, huh (though not all surprising in that as Public Choice Theory informs us, it is the small politically active class that tends to secure the large government favors - sugar tariffs, for example - while the rest of us pays for them)?

And the President of the University of Missouri Could Have Prevented Some Idiot from Shouting a Racial Epithet (Allegedly) at a Black Dude on the Outskirts of the Campus
HOW......exactly (the poor bastard being forced to relinquish his livelihood as a response to this ridiculousness)?
On the Fact that the Chinese Minority in Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam Have NEVER Possessed Significant Political Power and Have in Fact Been Officially Discriminated Against and They've Still Perpetually Outperformed (Ofttimes to a Major Extent) the Majorities Both Economically and Educationally in Each of These Nations
This one fact alone blows to smithereens the absolutely cartoonish notion of the left that discrimination is the most important (singular in the minds of some) variable determining group differences in achievement. And there are obviously other ones; the fact that Jews achieve at a higher rate than Hispanics do IN HISPANIC COUNTRIES, the fact that the Japanese were so discriminated in this country that they were put into internment camps during WW2 and totally dispossessed and by 1959 they were making as much as white Americans were, the fact that African and West-Indian black immigrants do significantly better (in school and in the market-place) than African-Americans born here do, etc., etc........................................................................................................Not that any of this evidence will ever be persuasive to the ruling-class in that it all but neuters the necessity of their existence (the fact that they need the unfairness argument to reign supreme so that they can gallop in on their white horses and rescue the oppressed). But the rest of us can appreciate these facts and hopefully arrive at a much more nuanced and empirical conclusion and at the very least not make the situation worse (as affirmative action - in Sri Lanka, India, Nigeria, Malaysia, as well as the United States - clearly has).

"Start with a large fortune and prune away at it."
Tuesday, November 24, 2015
If Sweden had been the 3rd wealthiest country on the planet under socialism, fell to 17th after 20 years of capitalism, and then soared once again when government spending went from 49% of GDP to 67% of GDP and the top marginal tax rate from 50-something percent to 80 something percent, the left would be championing this A-B-A scenario as a perfect example of successful government intervention/central planning (to which they'd have a decent amount of justification in that this is about as close as one can get to a controlled experiment in economics). Of course, being that the exact opposite was actually happened in Sweden, they're spinning like a bunch of drooling buffoons and circling the wagons YET AGAIN. Oh well, you've gotta at least admire their depravity, err, I mean, persistence.
On the Fact that America's Colleges Have Gone From a Bastion of Vigorous Debate to a Pitiful Cesspool of "Trigger Warnings", "Safe Spaces", "Micro-Aggressions", and a Singularity and Systematizing of Thought that Borders on the Kafkaesque
And then we wonder why poor Johnny can't find his way home after "graduating".
On the Fact that Whenever a Woman (Andrea Yates, for Example) Goes on Killing-Spree it's Mental Illness but Whenever a Dude (Like Elliot Rodger) Goes on a Killing-Spree it's Misogyny
Feminist logic 101 (at least amongst the more radical sects).
You can't slaughter people for making sport of you. You simply can't (the fact that literally every schoolyard in America would be strewn with corpses if this was the case). And, so, yeah, you're either going to have to develop a tougher skin, a live and let live philosophical mindset, or get your asses handed to you by a bunch of pissed-off westerners (and, trust me, they'll do it). I report, you decide.
Monday, November 23, 2015
On Donald Trump's Claim that He Saw THOUSANDS of Folks (Muslims, Ostensibly) in New Jersey Cheering When the Twin Towers Came Down on 9/11
He's confusing Jersey with the West Bank and, so, yeah, he probably flunked geography as well.
On the Fact the Jews Accepted the 1937 Peel Commission Offer of 6% of British Mandate Palestine (the Hashemite Kingdom Already Having Been Awarded 70% of it) - this, While the Palestinian Arabs Said, "Stuff it"
And the Jews were the unreasonable party toward the creation of Israel how exactly? 6% versus 94%.
Yes, Obama (who I am not a fan of FYI) could have left a residual military force behind in Iraq, but it WOULD NOT have been with the consent of the Iraqi government (you know, the one that we had essentially backed) OR the Iraqi citizens. And so, yes, not only would these actions have been a violation of international law, they would have also been immoral, fool-hardy, etc.. Look, I'm not saying that Obama has been good on foreign policy and his dithering half-way measures are probably the worst of both worlds but to try and lay the entire blame for ISIS on him is more than a little unfair, I think.

On John Kerry's Awkward and Head-Scratching Attempt to Differentiate the Charlie Hebdo Attacks from the More Recent Paris Attacks
Sometimes you can nuance yourself straight to stupidity. A case in point.
I have zero respects for 'em. Be an individual or crawl in a hole is my philosophy....Boot-licking schmucks.
On Rula Jebreal (Yes, a Hottie for Sure) Going on Bill Maher's Show and Claiming that it's OK to Be Openly Gay in Gaza (Shortly After She Had to Cencede that it WASN'T OK to Be a Christian)
Saturday, November 21, 2015
Yet another low point for sure. a) Alcoa was company that achieved market dominance through efficiency and technological innovation and not through funny business, cronyism, etc.. b) Even Judge Hand of the U.S. Court of Appeals had conceded that Alcoa was an honest company and had essentially invented the aluminum business, greatly expanded production, and significantly cut prices - its only sin being that it was successful (Hand practically chided them for expanding and introducing new technologies). And c) Judge Hand, in an effort to overstate Alcoa's market share, counted only primary ingot aluminum sales and disregarded the growing market for scrap aluminum. And all the while the customer got reamed AGAIN.............Sources - "Antitrust and Monopoly" by Dominick Armentano and "Bully Boy" by Jim Powell.
"During the immediate aftermath of, and following the uncertainty caused by, the downfall of the (Qaddafi) regime in October 2011 and up until early September of 2012, weapons from the former Libya military stockpiles located in Benghazi, Libya were shipped from the port of Benghazi, Libya to the ports of Banias and the Port of Borj Islam, Syria. The Syrian ports were chosen due to the small amount of cargo traffic transiting these two ports. The ships used to transport the weapons were medium-sized and able to hold 10 or less shipping containers of cargo. The weapons shipped from Syria during late-August 2012 were Sniper rifles, RPG’s and 125mm and 155mm howitzers missiles. The numbers for each weapon were estimated to be: 500 Sniper rifles, 100 RPG launchers with 300 total rounds, and approximately 400 howitzers missiles [200 ea – 125mm and 200ea – 155 mm.]."............So, the Obama administration KNEW that weapons were being shipped from the port of Benghazi to the Syrian rebels. Interesting. Of course, what makes this even more dubious is the fact that we also knew (per this same assessment) that a) al Qaeda was a big part of the opposition in Syria (yeah, that's right, we were arming al Qaeda) and b) a destabilization of Syria could easily lead to an Islamic insurgence....Damn, do I ever wish that these Presidents would listen to our first one and avoid these stupid foreign entanglements.
It's not golf, dude. YOU DON'T NEED TO WHISPER!!!

Research - not hastily drawn and lazy enough. Arguments/positions - not poorly constructed enough.............P.S. Check this; one of the most devastating take-downs in Youtube history, directed at our friends, the Turks - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eziz4l9C-Go
One of the coolest bands ever. Just don't listen to 'em while your driving (heroine music and driving - not a good mix).
On the Fact that History Is Increasingly Being Taught Not as a Factual Enterprise but as a Palliative One
So, we're going from whitewashing to therapy (with a huge dose of dumbing down thrown in for good measure) - gotta love it!!
I've always had a feeling that those Syrian chemical attacks were bogus, and now that Seymour Hersh (one of the country's best investigative reporters) has come out with this new information, I think it even more. Please, watch.
He was a monster and psychopath on the same level as Stalin, Pol Pot, Saddam Hussein, and Mao. Especially brutal was his wholesale killing-spree and ethnic-cleansing of what today is the Orange Free State (circa 1820) in which the lunatic slaughtered up to 2,000,000 natives and chased out the rest - the end result being a hundred mile swath of desolation. I mean, I know that we love throwing the word, genocide, around a lot these days, to the point where it has largely lost its descriptive oomph, but if this isn't genocide, what is?............Sources - Donald Morris's "The Washing of the Spears" and Ilana Mercer's "Into the Cannibal's Pot"
This is a great debate; civil, enlightening, thought-provoking, etc.. I strongly suggest that you check it out.

On the Fact that the U.S Has Purportedly Dropped Some 2,500 Bombs on Syria (Essentially Destroying the Infrastructure)
Only in the warped, degenerative mind of the neocon (the Krauthammers, Boltons, McCains, and Grahams of the world) could something like this ever be described as weak (ineffectual maybe but weak, no) - http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/syria-russia-says-air-strikes-last-three-four-months-accuses-us-pretending-bomb-isis-1522142
On the Fact that a Shitload of Black Activists Are Presently Burning Up Twitter with Beefs Pertaining to the Level of Press Coverage that the Paris Terror Attacks Have Been Receiving and Are Alleging this this Attention Is Somehow Taking Away Coverage from Their Grievances at the University of Missouri
So, a poop Swastika (that not one person thought to take a picture of) and some yahoo who may or may not have been affiliated with the University shouting out the n-word from a moving vehicle deserves the same level of coverage as 129 people being slaughtered (with hundreds more wounded)? Damn, huh?...........................................................................................................P.S. Whatever else that these spoiled brats (probably a lot of the same morons who booed Bernie Sanders) have learned at the "academy", perspective surely isn't one of them.

There's never been an argument from me. IN FACT, being that the black murder rate is fully 6 times that of whites (17.5 per 100,000 versus 2.6 per 100,000) with the perpetrators being 93% other black people, I'm actually quite insulted that this bullshit is being placed not just at my doorstep but the law enforcement community's, too.......STOP BLOWING YOUR FUCKING BRAINS OUT (much of it over foolishness; half-eaten Snickers bars, Air Jordan sneaks, some big-butted heifer, a slight, etc.), PEOPLE. BLACK LIVES MATTER!!!!!!
Note to ESPN - order more straitjackets.
Like that's gonna stop me.
On the Fact that (According to Anti-War Radio and Antiwar.com) Israel's Own Atomic Energy Commission Has Endorsed the Iran Nuclear Agreement and Found that on a Technical Level it Will More than Likely Prevent the Iranians from Obtaining a Nuclear Weapon
And the American media is ignoring this......why exactly (and instead focusing on the rants of Netanyahu, McCain, Rubio, Trump, Cruz, the Odious Mark Levin, etc. - Folks Who Criticized the Bill Before They Even Read it)? I mean, are they THAT enmeshed in the U.S. war-machine to ignore THIS? How pitiful if that's the case.
On the Fact that Pro-Blacks Are Foaming at the Mouth Over CNN's Don Lemon Having an Errant View (and in Fact Wish to Destroy the Man's Livelihood) but Continue to Ignore the Vile, Homophobic, Violent, Buffoonish, Moronic, and Sexist Antics of Rappers Such as Kanye West and Mos Def
It's a huge problem, folks, and until the leaders of the black community come to grips with it that community will continue to traverse backwards.

On the Democratic Party's Pitiful Descent from Grover Cleveland, Al Smith, John F. Kennedy, William Proxmire, Bill Daley, John Glenn, Sam Nunn, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, and Ed Koch
On the Fact that if Pro-Blacks Really Cared About the Plight of Black People They Would Support Barry Scheck's Innocence Project but, Being that They Don't and Instead Simply Babble Incessantly About Victimhood, Gotta Wonder
They really need to change the name to "Agendas Matter". Or maybe "Narratives Matter".
Monday, November 16, 2015
On the Fact that Rudy Giuliani Actually Ventured on Fox News Tonight and Advocated that We Occupy (with 50,000 Troops) Iraq Indefinitely (Comparing it to Our Stay in South Korea)
That just might be the most moronic comment of the year (worse than even the BS from Trump and Sanders). They fucking hate us over there and even if they did consent to our presence (doubtful in that the Status of Forces Agreement mandated out departure - ditto, the Iraqi agreement with Iran) the terrorists would simply move to another country and damned if there wouldn't be more of these slugs due to the American occupation serving as a recruiting tool. Giuliani's a boob, flat out, and if he actually thinks that yet another illegal occupation is the answer to our prayers then he's never studied history OR logic. Occupy Iraq indefinitely - yeah, right.
On the Concept of God as Some Bloodthirsty SOB Whose Only Goal it Appears is To Convince People that Detonating Yourself in a Crowded Room of Civilians is Somehow a Purpose-Driven Existence
As an agnostic who finds all religion more or less silly, I must confess that do prefer the old-fashioned notion of some venerable bearded dude in the sky judging us askew for checking out married women, and it isn't even close at this point.
On President Obama Spouting that Thoroughly Discredited Claim that 1 out of Every 5 College-Aged Women Will Ultimately Be Raped
Do they simply not have a fact-checker at the White House? Yes, folks, there is a study from the CDC (and an older one by an activist named Mary Koss) which claims what the President is claiming, but it is seriously flawed (the main flaw being that they count all episodes of drunken sex in which the woman regrets it in the morning as "rape" and all episodes in which the man lies to the woman in an effort to get her in the sack as "sexual violence). A much more accurate number (one that is considered the gold standard) is the one which comes from the Justice Department Crime Survey; 1 in 50 (still a troubling number but not the type that produces hysteria)......................................................................................................Of course the $64,000 question is why in the hell did Obama use the bogus stat? Stupidity? More pandering? I'd kind of like to know.
On the Fact that Three Black Teenagers Busted Into a Las Vegas Home In February and Brutally Raped a Woman at Knife-Point (Her Husband Being Forced to Watch) and Crickets from the Radical Feminists, Leftist Media, Pro-Blacks, etc.
Yeah, this woman had two strikes against her. a) She was white and b) she was a porn actress. And, besides, the media is always way too busy covering ludicrous white on black rape stories (Tawana Brawley, Duke, and UVA) that more definitively fit their narrative (blacks as perpetual victims) to ever care about something like this - http://downtrend.com/vsaxena/cytherea-raped-by-gang-of-teen-thugs

Since 1962 (the year that the Kefauver Amendments were passed), the length of time that it takes to get a drug from the lab to the market has TRIPLED (from 5 to 15 years) and the cost is now approaching a BILLION dollars per drug. This has made it almost impossible for a new drug that addresses rare diseases to be brought to market because a company could never recoup its expense never mind make a damned profit - this while people are suffering....Government killing people, folks - it's what they do.
Yeah, it's a tad unseemly, I agree. But as long as the Democratic Party continues to promise (and often deliver) everything under the sun (for "free") to the American public and bend over backwards to THEIR special interests (leftist environmentalists, unions, etc.), I think that they will continue to do just fine and, so, no, no need to worry.
Saturday, November 14, 2015
You are ignorant of history, son. The conservative movement in America has never been about foreign interventionism. From Robert Taft to Grover Cleveland (the last of the Jeffersonian Democrats), Herbert Hoover, Hamilton Fish the third, General Robert Wood, George Holden Tinkham, Russell Kirk, Richard Weaver, Murray Rothbard, Felix Morely, James McClellan, Robert Nisbet, and Frank Kellogg - all of these guys and many more (conservatives in government, the military, academia, the press, etc.) were opposed to American involvement in foreign wars and they weren't even remotely the exception (this while the left was blowing shit up and intervening everywhere; Europe, Asia, Central America, etc.). My suggestion is that you open up a few history volumes and stop listening to Charles Krauthammer, reading the Wall Street Journal, etc..
On Why Mark Richt Is Seemingly Considering a Move from SEC Power, Georgia, to the Modestly Lesser Profile Virginia Tech Gig

On the Fact that that Idiot Hunger-Striker from the University of Missouri Who Claims to Be Oppressed Is Actually the Son of a Rich Railroad Executive Who Made Over $8 Million Last Year (a Figure that Would Put the Dude and His Family in the Top .1%)
Spoiled brat, unsubstantiated allegations, and professional agitator had a kid, it seems.
Might we have at least a small dose of journalistic and academic integrity? I mean, is that too much to ask of these people?
A major blow to the "blowback" theory it seems (the fact that the French haven't invaded Iraq, sent boatloads of money and armaments to Israel, stationed troops in the Holy Land, etc.).
What would be my answer to the question, "So, what would be your mental state if your daughter ever informed you that she was a lesbian?"
Wear a Depends, would be my suggestion (that and pray to God that one of the super efficient East-Asian women waits on you and not one of the slant-headed white asshole males).
On the Fact that the Cowardly Western Media Referred to the Murder of Afrikaner Separatist/Resistance Leader, Eugene Terre'Blanche (He Was Bludgeoned to an Unrecognizable Pulp and Left with His Pants Pulled Down to Underscore the Humiliation), as a "Labor Dispute"
Does anyone in his or her right mind think that if the races of the victim and perpetrators were reversed, the media would act the same? "Cause if there is, I would LOVE to do business with them. Ca-ching, ca-ching.
Thursday, November 12, 2015
On the Fact that (According to Medical Researcher, Mary Ruwart) Rats Won't (Except When it's Infused with Chocolate) Drink Alcohol
If he had made those comments about any other group; blacks, Jews, Asians, gays, American Indians, even Muslims, the dude would have been eviscerated and his candidacy ended. But because they were levied against Mexicans, Guatemalans, etc., he continues to skate. Un-fucking-real.............................................................................................P.S. And now he wants to set up a bunch of deportation squads to rid the country of 12,000,000 illegals in less than a year, which is both draconian AND unfeasible. Wake me when it's over, would you?
On the Fact that Change.org and Various Other Leftist Sites Are Trying to Get CNN's Don Lemon Off the Air Simply Because He Refuses to Drink the Cyanide-Laced Purple Kool-Aid Which States that All Black People Must Think a Certain Way
On the Fact that Senators Elizabeth Warren and Tim Kaine and Former New Mexico Governor, Bill Richardson, Have All Spoken at the Cato Institute Recently and Have All Been Treated with the Utmost Respect
Gee, what a shock, libertarians behaving better than imbecilic university leftists when it comes to hearing views that they may (liberalizing our drug policies) or may not (banking regulation) agree with.......STOP THE PRESSES!!!

On the Fact that Jeb Bush is Emphasizing His First Name Much More than His Last Name in Campaign Commercials - "Jeb".
Yeah, that's probably a smart move.
On the Fact that Lincoln, Churchill, and Mandela Are the Three Leaders from History Who We Are Seemingly Not Allowed to Criticize
Yes, I got the memo and, no, I will not follow it. The fact of the matter is that all three of these men were bloodthirsty statists whose ends (centralized power, taxation, empire, communism) were every bit as nasty as their means (targeting civilians, persecuting dissent, etc.) and the fact that we glorify them is as moronic as it is disturbing.
It has delivered hell every single time; in Argentina when the government officially put Jews and Italians into the "undesirable" category, in Sri Lanka when the Tamils and Sinhalese ultimately decided to emphasize their ethnicity, in Nigeria when (after the British left) the Hausa-Fulani started expelling Ibos simply because they were out-competing them, in Malaysia when the Malays imposed affirmative action against the Chinese because the Chinese (despite starting off far behind) were kicking their butts educationally and economically, in America when the federal government (under Presidents Johnson and Nixon) instituted preferential policies which alienated whites and seriously harmed blacks, in Russia when the Communists ethnically cleansed the Volga Germans out of some paranoiac fear of Nazi collaboration, etc.. WE'RE ALL FUCKING HUMANS, PEOPLE, and the sooner that we get rid of these damned hyphens the better.

On the Fact that (According to the Institute for Justice's Robert McNamara) in Louisiana, a Larger Percentage of Applicants Pass the Bar Exam than Pass the Exam to Be a Licensed Floral Arranger
One more example of the government a) protecting existing businesses, b) destroying citizens' lives, and c) adding to the income inequality that they supposedly care so much about.
On the Fact that Two Black Law Enforcement Officers Rained 18 Bullets Into a Six Year-Old White Kid and His Dad (Killing the Child and Seriously Wounding the Father) in Mississippi the Other Day
The left is turning itself into pretzels as we speak (what to do, what to do) - http://hereandnow.wbur.org/2015/11/09/police-shooting-autistic-boy
As absurd (the fact that you would even consider paying people with zero skills - many of whom are teenagers - the same as people who've taken the time, money, and effort to develop marketable skills, improvements in their human capital, etc.) as it is economically illiterate (read some Bastiat or even some Schumpeter, for Christ).
On the Fact that in 1941, Time Magazine Actually Had a Cover Story Which Read, "How to Tell Your Friends from the Japs"
And that's from the "intelligentsia". Can you imagine what Joe Blow and Joe Sixpack thought?......................................................................................P.S. The truth of the matter is that anti-Asian bigotry was off the charts in this country and in Canada (starting off against the Chinese and extending to the Japanese - post Pearl Harbor, Koreans, etc.) for well over a century and if that Time Magazine hit-piece doesn't illustrate it to you nothing ever could.

On the Fact that (According to Author and Researcher, Caroline Wolf Harlow) "The Number of Black Hate-Crime Victims Was (Circa 2005) so Small, that is Statistically Insignificant, that it Precluded Analysis of the Race of Persons Who Victimized Them"
The numbers that Ms. Harlow used were taken from the Bureau of Justice Statistics' "National Crime Victimization Survey"; a study which clearly showed that white on black violent crime was exceedingly rare and that when it did happen only three in ten victims cited race as a motive.......Hey, Obama said that he wanted to have a "conversation" and I don't recall him saying that facts were optional.
On the Fact that (According to Constitutional Legal Scholar and WestConn History Professor, Kevin Gutzman) Over 90% of the Laws Passed Since 1937 (When FDR Was Able to Successfully Alter the Supreme Court) Are Unconstitutional
Why do we even have such a thing anymore? Seriously.
On the Fact that a Lot of Black Guys Refer to Black Women Who Prefer to Date White Guys as "Bed Wenches"
This while they're simultaneously trying to bag as many white chicks as possible.

On Obama Making Fun of the Republican Candidates for Their Bitching and Moaning About the Recent (CNBC) Debate Moderators
So kind of like what he does regarding Fox News, in other words?
On the Fact that Melissa Harris-Perry Apparently Thinks that Only 18th and 19th Century Sub-Saharan African Slaves Toiling in North American Have Ever "Worked Hard"
On a network that is literally laced with crazy-assed lunatics (and far worse than Fox at this point), she be the queen for sure.............And, yes, I would ask the chick yet again; "Where is the image on your wall of those Irish slaves that Cromwell worked to oblivion in Barbados. Certainly THEY knew the meaning of hard work, too."
Here are the stats (http://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/cvus0502.pdf). According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics' 2005 "Criminal Victimization Statistical Tables", of the 111,490 incidents of rape in this country in which the victims were white, in 34% of those instances the perpetrator was black (this despite the fact that blacks only make up 12% of the population), and of the 36,620 incidents of rape in which the victims were black, in less than 1% of those instances was the perpetrator white (this despite the fact that whites make up about 70% of the population). Yes, we have a huge racial violence problem in this country but it's predominantly black on white. Sorry but yes.
Friday, November 6, 2015
On the Fact that (According to BBC News; December 12, 2006) in Present-Day South Africa, 65 People on Average Are Murdered Every Day (They Also Note Nearly 200 Rapes and 300 Violent Robberies per Day)
And the sad thing is that these figures are probably low-ball estimates (the fact that the government and police force play with the data). Interpol, for example has the murder-rate as nearly double this and even the South African Medical Research Council says that it's a third higher....Ain't gonna play Sun City for certain.
On the Fact that a Black Mother from Detroit Murdered Two of Her Children (the Other Two She Just Tortured) and Stuffed Their Carcasses in a Freezer
Yeah, I'm gonna go with, four black lives totally NOT mattering -http://www.mlive.com/news/detroit/index.ssf/2015/03/surviving_children_say_detroit.html
Our country is being run by morons. I mean, does the President just not realize that the oil is going to be sold and shipped anyway, and that the alternative modes of transport (rail and tanker) are even more dangerous? And why is he so beholdin' to these radical environmentalists who actually think that windmills (with a power density of one watt per square meter and which cannot function absent a fossil fuel backup) and ethanol (with a power density of .05 watts per square meter and which is driving up the cost of food worldwide) are viable options not just for America but for an energy-starved third-word (a world that even Hillary Clinton has conceded will have to utilize more coal in order to achieve even a semblance of modernity)? It's inexplicable to me.
I hate to tell you, dude, but you're getting "a little up there in years", too, and so maybe not the best attack-line (responding to criticisms from Bush senior)................................................................................................P.S. Unless of course you were attempting to be ironic, in which case you totally succeeded.

Well, being that he couldn't lambaste his own prodigy (over the Iraq debacle), it was probably the best that he could muster.
On the Fact that Economist Bob Guest Has Recently Referred to South Africa's Affirmative Action Policy as the "Most Extreme in the World"
So more extreme than even that of India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Malaysia, and Nigeria. THAT is saying something.
On the Fact that Even the BBC's John Simpson Has Conceded that the "New" South Africa Now Contends with Iraq and Columbia as the World's Most Violent, Chaotic, and Lawless Country
And yet American politicians (from both parties) continue to stick their heads in the sand. How pathetic.

On All of Those '80s Rock Stars Who Proudly Belted Out, "I......I......I......I......I......I Ain't Gonna Play Sun City No......No......No"
On the Fact that (According to the "Child Abuse Review") Close to 10% of All Rapes in South Africa Are Perpetrated Against Children Under Three Years of Age
Where is the left's outrage on THIS? I mean, have we gotten to the point where race trumps even child brutality now? My Lord.............................................................................................P.S. One of the possible reasons for this barbarism is a ludicrous belief by some in South Africa that sex with a child will insulate you from AIDS - this despite the numerous efforts by Western relief agencies to educate the populous otherwise.

On Melissa Harris-Perry Lecturing Her Viewership (as Paltry as it Is) on "Relative Advantage" and Engaging in Such Condescending Bullshit from a Perch on Corporate High
These folks are so insulated (in Perry's case by both the media AND academia). And what really irritates me is the fact that they think that these ideas of theirs (their various social-conflict theories) are so brand-spanking new, unique, and revolutionary when they're little more than regurgitated and hackneyed crap from the '60s (yeah, I was a Sociology minor). News-flash, slant-heads, we all went through this phase - you know, back when we were 19. Bug duh.
On the Fact that Bernie Sanders Can Go to Liberty University and Get Treated with Respect but a When a Conservative (or Even a Moderate Like Christina Hoff Sommers) Even Sets Foot on a Liberal Campus All Fucking Hell Breaks Loose
So even Bible-thumping morons are more open-minded and courteous than the left these days. How damned embarrassing is that?
On the Fact that Not One but Two Black Women Threw Their Babies Off of Balconies in the Fordham Heights Section of the Bronx in Just the Past Six Weeks
So these stories get completely ignored by pro-blacks and the white liberal media but that image of the school-safety officer strong-arming a disruptive 16 year-old black chick gets wall-to-wall coverage (one CNN segment showed the visual 20-something times)? Unreal.

On the Assertion by Demagogues Such as Melissa Harris-Perry (What a Colossal Waste of a Hyphen) that the Treatment of Blacks in North America Was Some Sort of Uniquely Evil Episode
Total bullshit. The fact of the matter is that slavery was practiced throughout the world (and still exists today) and if anything how it was administered here was mild when compared to what happened in South America, the Caribbean, Northern Africa, etc. (and, no, I'm not saying that slavery was a benign institution - just making a comparison). And neither was the institution confined just to Sub-Saharan Africans, either. Poor whites from the ghettos of London were also rounded up and in the 17th Century Cromwell sent tens of thousands of Irish people (as a part of his ruthless attempt at ethnic-cleansing) to Barbados where they were quite literally worked TO DEATH (have an image of that in your office, too, Melissa). Yes, slavery was a stain on our country's history but to try and create some mythos about it and to dwell on it 150 years after it was abolished is thoroughly getting lame, I think. If I was to counsel folks like Perry, it would be to get them to look at not just how well that the the East Asians (another group that was treated like garbage in the 19th and early 20th Centuries) have done but also how well that the black immigrants from Africa and the West Indies have done, and to try and get them to rally around that instead of this incessant victimization BS.......................................................................................................Recommended reading; "White Cargo" by Don Jordan and "To Hell or Barbados" by Sean O'Callaghan.

On the Fact that the CEO of Walmart Could Work for NOTHING and Even if You Distributed His Entire Forfeited Salary to the Employees it Would Only Come Out to About $15 per Person PER YEAR
That's why I don't get too upset about this whole "CEO to worker ratio growing" talking point (the fact that it's an essentially symbolic issue, lacks perspective, etc.) and would much prefer a more substantive analysis.
On Radical Environmentalists Who Go Around Decrying Mining While at the Same Time Tinkering with Their Cell-Phones and Laptops
These people are so moronic. Do they think that this stuff just falls out of the heavens and into their fucking laps?......Seemingly, huh?
