THE ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER

OLD VERSION


The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his
house
and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays
the
summer away..

Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.

The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.


MORAL OF THE STORY: Be responsible for yourself!


MODERN VERSION

The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long,
building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays
the
summer away.

Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and
demands
to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is
cold and starving.

CBS, NBC , PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering
grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a
table
filled with food.

America is stunned by the sharp contrast.

How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper
is
allowed to suffer so?

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries
when they sing, 'It's Not Easy Being Green.'

ACORN stages a demonstration in front of the ant's house where the news
stations film the group singing, "We shall overcome." Then Rev. Jeremiah
Wright has the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper's sake.

President Obama condemns the ant and blames President Bush, President
Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper's plight.

Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the
ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an
immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act
retroactive to the beginning of the summer.

The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs
and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is
confiscated by the Government Green Czar and given to the grasshopper.

The story ends as we see the grasshopper and his free-loading friends
finishing up the last bits of the ant's food while the government house he
is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant's old house,
crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn't maintain it.

The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.

The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house,
now
abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the
ramshackle,
once prosperous and once peaceful, neighborhood.

The entire Nation collapses bringing the rest of the free world with it.


MORAL OF THE STORY: Be careful how you vote in 2010.




One thing about the earthquake that struck Port-au-Prince is that it struck Port-au-Prince, effecting very little of the rest of the country's 9 million people.

So where is the charity and "can-do" attitude of that nations other 99% who weren't effected by the quake?

The Center Can Not Hold...

A Santa Clarita councilman’s shout-out at a recent anti-illegal immigration rally that he is a “proud racist” has ignited an angry war of words in a suburban community over whether the longtime civic leader is a hatemonger who should be driven from office or a patriot unafraid to speak out for fellow Americans.

Bob Kellar, a veteran councilman and two-time mayor, said his words have been taken out of context, but he declined to offer an apology at a City Council meeting Tuesday night.

But the remark, which was posted in a video on You Tube and quickly spread across the blogosphere, has set off a firestorm. As protesters carrying signs milled outside the council meeting, dozens of Santa Clarita residents jumped on the issue. Many applauded Kellar when he strode into the meeting.

“They are invading us, and colonizing us . . . and we taxpayers are footing the bill for them,” lifelong Santa Clarita resident and Minutemen member Robert Crooks, 59, said of undocumented workers. For the last five years, Crooks said, he has volunteered as a sentry on the U.S.-Mexico border in Tecate, keeping watch for border-hoppers.

Bruce McFarland, a political organizer and 32-year resident of the Santa Clarita Valley, called Kellar “an embarrassment” and urged the council to censure him, which elicited boos and expletives from the audience.

{snip}

The support for Kellar, a U.S. Army veteran who served 25 years with the Los Angeles Police Department, focused attention on the simmering tensions over the effect of illegal immigration in this predominantly white and largely conservative northern Los Angeles County city.

Population statistics published by the city for 2008 show that close to 70% of Santa Clarita’s population of 177,045 is white. {snip}

{snip}

“Forty people living in one house and destroying our neighborhood and quality of life, emergency rooms with standing room only and no one speaking English, day laborers standing all over our streets taking a toll on our businesses and traffic,” Kellar wrote [in a written response published Tuesday in a local newspaper,]. “That describes some of the issues on a local basis.”

{snip}

Many residents who defended Kellar’s “proud racist” remark said they would crack down harder and wished undocumented immigrants would leave the city and country. Several blamed them for an upswing in crime and for drug- trafficking.

“Illegals are here at the expense of our community,” said Santa Clarita Valley businessman Larry Rasmussen. “I agree with Bob. Our nation is a nation of laws.”

The few residents who spoke out against Kellar at Tuesday’s meeting accused the councilman of spreading hatred. Some called Kellar’s remarks “disgraceful” and suggested that the councilman at least apologize. Kellar told reporters he had no regrets over his remarks.

Regardless of whether this guy back peddles we can learn a few things from this incident.


1. "Diversity" increases White people's awareness of race and racial differences rather than lessening them.

2. There are still leaders out there with a back bone.

3. Most importantly, when such a leader takes to the podium and speaks unapologetically of such issues he is embraced by large numbers of Whites.



The pot is simmering out there. Whites WILL embrace leaders who come forward to speak and act on their behalf!

Glad They're There To Tell Us These Things...

DAVOS—The global economic recovery could lose pace later this year, dashing hopes for a rapid escape from the deepest downturn of the postwar era, economists and investors said at the World Economic Forum's annual meeting at this Swiss ski resort.

Heavy debts will weigh on governments and households in the U.S. and Europe for some time, while hopes for global growth will continue to rest on fast-developing countries such as India and China, predicted participants at the meeting's opening debate on the economy.

-source


This is kind of like a weather man telling you what the current conditions are.

But the real question is, what "recovery" is there that is expected to slow?



Basically they're telling us that there will be no recovery and hope that if they keep edging the "recovery" out far enough that after a while people will accommodate themselves to a more third world level of social and economic lifestyle.

Third World + Feminism =...

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) -- Argentina's president thinks eating pig meat is really sexy.

Many people in this beef-loving nation reacted with surprise Thursday after Cristina Fernandez promoted pork in a speech during which she not only said pork is better than Viagra, but suggested she's personally proven it.

"I didn't know that eating pork improved sexual activity," Fernandez said in a meeting with representatives of the swine industry late Wednesday. "It is much more gratifying to eat some grilled pork than to take Viagra."

-source

Women leaders are walking, talking examples of why there shouldn't be women leaders.
They are easy prey for lobbyists, corporations and the like.

Particularly egregious here is the fact that it is Argentina. I can't help but think that that country has other issues more pertinent than the selling of pork to amp up people's sex lives.

Isn't that something out of 'Idiocracy'?

And just from an advertising point of view, is it really wise to pick an elderly woman whose prolific amount of plastic surgery makes her look like a blue haired Hollywood diva from the silent era still living on Sunset Boulevard as your spokesperson for "spicing" things up?

Science Vs. Advocacy...

By Professor J. Philippe Rushton

In his book, Intelligence and How to Get It, Richard E. Nisbett, a social psychologist at the University of Michigan, asserts that cultural factors alone are sufficient to explain all the race differences to be observed in IQ and educational achievement.

Nisbett [Email] criticizes the nature + nurture model Arthur Jensen and I presented in 2005 in Psychology, Public Policy, and Law. . [Thirty Years Of Research On Race Differences In Cognitive Ability (PDF)] Nisbett claims the heritability of IQ is lower than assumed, that Blacks have substantially narrowed the gap on Whites, that any remaining differences can be eliminated through educational and social intervention, and that any assertion of a mean IQ of 70 for sub-Saharan Africans is “desperately wrong”.

The dust jacket blurb puts Nisbett’s book in the tradition of Stephen Jay Gould’s Mismeasure of Man (1981, 1996). What is striking, however, is how much ground the egalitarians have given since Gould’s effort to debunk race, genetics, and IQ.

Nisbett concedes that general intelligence exists, that IQ tests predict success at both school and work, that scores are influenced by genes, and that in White populations, genes contribute to social class differences. He even accepts that IQ is related to brain size and that “Blacks are sometimes found to have smaller brains than Whites”. Gould must be spinning in his grave!

Such is the state of expert opinion today that Nisbett simply had to make these concessions lest his book be disqualified as serious scholarship. But while he admits that genes play a role in accounting for within-group differences, he still maintains they play no significant part in between-group differences.

Nisbett acknowledges that measured group differences exist: Jewish (mean IQ = 113), East Asian (107), White (100), South Asian (87), Hispanic (87), African American (85), and sub-Saharan African (70), although he erroneously claims that South Asians score as highly as East Asians. But Nisbett asserts that family pressure for success leads East Asians and Jews to high levels of achievement, while low expectations and a lack of opportunity lead Hispanics and Blacks to much lower levels of achievement.

Jensen and I have provided a long point-counterpoint review of Nisbett’s book in The Open Psychology Journal. [Race and IQ: A Theory-Based Review of the Research in Richard Nisbett’s Intelligence and How to Get It(PDF)] We found much that was admirable and informative in it, such as the cost-benefit survey of the literature on educational interventions and what can be done to increase school performance. But, sadly, we concluded it was mainly a work of advocacy, not scholarship.

Nisbett misrepresents much of the available information using highly selective reviews of the literature. Especially egregious are his many errors of omission. For example, while complaining of unrepresentative samples in a 1991 review paper by Richard Lynn, Nisbett side-stepped the very much larger compilation of data in Lynn and Vanhanen’s 2006 book. Nisbett completely ignores the adoption studies of East Asians, as well as those on brain size showing a genetic contribution to their high achievement.

I’m going to group Nisbett’s flaws under seven heads:

Re-Up (Even Though We Don't Exist, We Only Recently Arrived!)...

(note: the information in the following article has been misrepresented by the media which is eager to twist it)

White Europeans could have evolved as recently as 5,500 years ago, according to research which suggests that the early humans who populated Britain and Scandinavia had dark skins for millenniums.

It was only when early humans gave up hunter-gathering and switched to farming about 5,500 years ago that white skin began to be favoured, say the researchers.

This is because farmed food was deficient in vitamin D, a vital nutrient. Humans can make this in their skin when exposed to sunlight, but dark skin is much less efficient at it.

-source



Of course many Asians and peoples across North America reside in similar climates yet they are red, brown and yellow skinned (as well as possessing clearly distinct skull and skeletal builds and facial characteristics).
The point remains though that "dark skin" is not defined in the context of the study alluded to. Sean Connery has "dark skin" compared to Roger Moore, for example.



But the kicker of the article is that this same media that spends so much time telling us race is a social construct turns right around and tells us that White People recently came about.



But that is the Left.

It is a world of unending lies, hypocrisies and delusions.

They will tell us there is no such thing as race on the one hand, then preach to us the sacredness of diversity on the other.
After all, if there is no such thing as race, then there can be no such thing as diversity.


And for those who would shout, "we all bleed red", yeah, well, so do rats and monkeys!

But Nobody Could Call Them Racist...

The Fort Hood massacre major repeatedly was ripped by Army brass for unprofessional behavior, poor judgment, lateness and even being too fat -- but was still given glowing reports by the same officers.

Nidal Hasan was rated "Outstanding Performance, Must Promote" by one supervisor and "Best Qualified" by another shortly after he barely avoided being put on probation.

Documents obtain by The Associated Press showed that officials expressed concern about Hasan at almost every stage of his Army education yet they praised him when it mattered, on his permanent record.

What Are You Looking For?...

from Sailer,

The main Google searchbox on Google.com has a feature where if you start typing a phrase it tries to anticipate what you have in mind and offer the complete phrase in a drop down pick list based on what other users have asked. For example if you type into Google's searchbox
How do I

Google offers ten suggestions for completing this entry, beginning with these three useful questions:
How do I find my IP address
How do I know if im pregnant
How do I get a passport

Commenter Victoria points out that if you type in, however, Pat Bu, Google offers you the following ten prompts:
Pat Burrell
Pat bus schedule
Pat Buttram
Pat Burrell stats
Pat Burns
Pat Burrell wife
Pat Burke
Pat Buckley Moss
Pat Buckley
Pat Burns cancer

Who are these people?

...
Somehow, I don't think those are the most famous Pat Bu...s on the Internet today.

...

Finally if you type in Patrick J. you'll get a list of prompts of people named Patrick J. Something, none of them as famous as Patrick J. Buchanan, winner of the 1996 New Hampshire GOP Presidential primary.

Of course, Google can't (yet?) delete Pat Buchanan from their main search engine, just from the prompts. If you type Pat Buchanan into Google's searchbox, you get back:
Results 1 - 20 of about 1,630,000 for pat buchanan. (0.22 seconds)

In contrast, if you type in Pat Buttram:
Results 1 - 20 of about 49,300 for pat buttram. (0.32 seconds)

....because Google is so close to being a monopoly, it's crucial that the public monitor abuses by Google stemming from Google's not exactly subtle political biases...

Yo! Itz A T-Party Now...

Marcus is one of a number of black conservatives who have joined up with, and helped lead, the conservative tea party movement since its inception. Though the movement has attracted criticism for its supposed lack of diversity—MSNBC host Chris Matthews recently called the groups “monochromatic” and “all white”—those minority activists who are involved say the movement has little to do with race, and that it is attracting a more diverse crowd every day.

...

He [Marcus] and other black conservatives connected with one of the hundreds of tea party groups across America were largely active in conservative and Republican causes before the movement’s start in early 2009.

...

Owens now publishes a journal documenting the tea party cross-country tours. The Multi-Cultural Conservative Coalition is also sponsoring the next leg of the Tea Party Express.

'The
best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.'
-Vladimir Lenin


Any movement embraced by both the GOP and FOX News is rather obviously not a threat to the status quo of the current political/social/economic order.

To believe that voting will solve the problems is to suggest that voting caused them.
And that is a very shallow understanding of just how FUBAR America is.

The Tea party or the Ron Paul movement is not the cure. They're just more symptoms of the rot.

Nations are biological entities. They are extended clans; extended families. As such, there is no such thing as a multiCULTural society.

A People are not held together by a political ideology, religion, creed or business model. A People are held together by blood; by race.

America is an anti-Nation. Americanism is the new Tower of Babel.

Voting within its paradigm is to agree to sustain it.

It is a system that is nourished on participation.

They All Look Alike To Me...

BOSTON – In an epic upset in liberal Massachusetts, Republican Scott Brown rode a wave of voter anger to win the U.S. Senate seat held by the late Edward M. Kennedy for nearly half a century, leaving President Barack Obama's health care overhaul in doubt and marring the end of his first year in office.

Wow!
A suit won an office!

Sorry not to be excited, but come on, he's just another suit.

They all have an interchangeable veneer of "say what you want to here" bullshit about them, so why the hype?
A Republocrat won a seat from another Republocrat.
I mean that may excite some people but for those of us who were around last election cycle (all of two years ago) it's not exactly original.

For those imagining some sort of GOP salvation this year, remember back on 1994 and the "Contract with America".

That sure changed things didn't it!

A few years after that we got 'Dubya'.

And then with Republicans in charge of the White House and the Senate, abortion was brought to an end, "gay marriage" legislation was forever vanquished, America stopped its reckless nation-building programs, the country didn't go deeper into crippling debt and 30 million illegal immigrants didn't enter the country raping, plundering and slaughtering to their hearts content.

But never mind all that, a suit won an office somewhere!!!

Even Corporate Tools Sometimes Contribute...

From the New York Times,

The second hard truth is that micro-aid is vital but insufficient. Given the failures of macrodevelopment, aid organizations often focus on microprojects. More than 10,000 organizations perform missions of this sort in Haiti. By some estimates, Haiti has more nongovernmental organizations per capita than any other place on earth. They are doing the Lord’s work, especially these days, but even a blizzard of these efforts does not seem to add up to comprehensive change.

Race matters.
The truth is there is not one single place on planet earth with a black majority that is not riddled with crime, poverty and disease.

Never has been.

On a side street in an old industrial neighborhood, a delivery man stacks a dolly of goods outside a store. Ten feet away stands another man clad in military fatigues, combat boots and what appears to be a flak jacket. He looks straight out of Baghdad. But this isn't Iraq. It's southeast Detroit, and he's there to guard the groceries.

"No pictures, put the camera down," he yells. My companion and I, on a tour of how people in this city are using urban farms to grow their own food, speed off.

In this recession-racked town, the lack of food is a serious problem. It's a theme that comes up again and again in conversations in Detroit. There isn't a single major chain supermarket in the city...

There used to be supermarkets there but crime drove them out of the area.

  • Black (81.6%)
  • White Non-Hispanic (10.5%)
  • Hispanic (5.0%)
  • Other race (2.5%)

Probably one of the most emailed-around articles on Election Day was this:

“In western Kenya, relatives, friends and a bull ready for slaughter were massed around the homestead of Barack Obama's late father, awaiting a hoped-for victory for their new favourite son…Leading in US opinion polls over Republican rival John McCain, Obama received some added support in Kenya with special prayer sessions and even a victory prediction from a local witch doctor. [Obama's Kenyan relatives ready bull for slaughter, by Odhiambo Akombo, AFP, November 4, 2008]

If President Obama succeeds in arranging more immigration from Africa, Americans can expect a wide assortment of superstitious behavior that we would find objectionable, to say the least.

In Tanzania, at least 30 albinos have been murdered in the last year because of witchcraft. Their body parts are much desired for sorcery rituals and bring a high price. There is a cross-border trade with Burundi where albinos, including children, are chased down, killed and dismembered. One man was pursued by four armed men and had to hide in the forest for two days.

The purchasers may place a body part near a gold mine to bring the metal to the surface or on a hook as fish bait.

"The killers sell body parts such as arms, legs, hair, skin and genitals, according to police and albino groups.

“Those involved in witchcraft, especially in mining and fishing industries, believe these will enrich them, President Kikwete said last month, calling it a 'stupid belief.'

Local media have reported several incidents of victims left to bleed to death.

'They are cutting us up like chickens,' Msembo said, while pointing to a picture on a wall in her cramped office of a limbless body with the skin on its face peeled off from an incident in 2007." [African albinos killed for body parts, By George Obulutsa, Reuters, November 3, 2008]

As a result, the 200,000 Tanzanian albinos are terrorized and angry that their corpses have become a commodity. In one recent case, a 10-year-old girl was killed and mutilated by a gang to sell the parts.

In Angola and Congo, children are accused surprisingly often of being witches, and often expelled from their families. One investigation counted 432 Angolan street children in a single town who had been accused of witchcraft and turned out.

it was reported in September that accusations of sorcery set off a soccer riot in eastern Congo causing the deaths of 13 people, most of whom were children and teens. [Witchcraft rumor sparks riot at Congo soccer game, AP, September 15, 2008] The blow-up began when one player was suspected of throwing something into the net of the opposing team, which was thought to be "witchcraft." The result was violence and death.

Worse, her case was only the tip of the iceberg.

"An official inquiry into the abuse of African children branded as witches is expected to conclude that there have been at least 50 such cases over five years in London alone.

The investigation is expected to find that cases of sorcery-related abuse are now spreading outside the capital to areas such as Liverpool, Newcastle and parts of Yorkshire—although they remain confined to only a minority of Africans in Britain.

The abuse of the children has ranged from shouting to beating, starving, slashing with knives and razors and, in at least one case, murder." ["Witch child" abuse spreads in Britain, By Jack Grimston Sunday Times, June 25, 2006]

Another shocking murder was "Adam," an unidentified child whose headless torso was found in the Thames in September 2001. The African boy was believed to be between four and six years old and had swallowed a potion containing bone fragments before he died. Investigators concluded that the boy was killed in a ritual murder as a part of African witchcraft. No-one was ever arrested.

After more investigation of missing children in Britain, authorities determined that some 300 black boys aged 4-7 were unaccounted for, leading to fears of widespread child sacrifice. But child protective agencies do not track the many foreign children sent to live in Britain under the care of persons who are not the parents. So the extent of abuse is not really known.

More complicating is the presence of ostensibly Christian churches, populated with African immigrants, which commonly practice exorcisms. ['Exorcisms are part of our culture', By Cindi John BBC News, June 3, 2005]In particular, Congolese and Angolan preachers accept the existence of evil spirits, curses and demonic possession, and weave that belief into their ministries. In some cases, pastors have crossed the line into child abuse in their activities to drive out evil spirits. Social turmoil has been an unfortunate byproduct, with ethnic groups accusing police of racism.

Crime Rates

  • Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
  • When blacks commit crimes of violence, they are nearly three times more likely than non-blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife.
  • Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate, and Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the white rate.
  • The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is black and Hispanic.

Interracial Crime

  • Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.
  • Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.
  • Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
  • Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.

Gangs

  • Only 10 percent of youth gang members are white.
  • Hispanics are 19 times more likely than whites to be members of youth gangs. Blacks are 15 times more likely, and Asians are nine times more likely.

Incarceration

  • Between 1980 and 2003 the US incarceration rate more than tripled, from 139 to 482 per 100,000, and the number of prisoners increased from 320,000 to 1.39 million.
  • Blacks are seven times more likely to be in prison than whites. Hispanics are three times more likely.

The table does not gives statistics for Hispanic victims and offenders. But the bottom line on interracial white/black and black/white rape is clear:

In the United States in 2005, 37,460 white females were sexually assaulted or raped by a black man, while between zero and ten black females were sexually assaulted or raped by a white man.

What this means is that every day in the United States, over one hundred white women are raped or sexually assaulted by a black man.

Western leaders from France, the United States and Canada joined
Britain in ratcheting up pressure on the organisation to reject Mr Mugabe’s
authority.


Freshly sworn in after a single candidate election, he received a
leader’s welcome when he strode into the African Union summit in Sharm el-Sheikh
yesterday and emerged unfazed, his authority intact.
He dined at a lavish
luncheon given by his Egyptian hosts, hugged heads of state and other diplomats
in the corridors and stayed at the Peninsula Hotel, one of the most luxurious in
this Red Sea town. “Mr Mugabe is staying there as a courtesy by the Egyptian
Government,” a hotel spokesman said. Delegates from the opposition Movement for
Democratic Change (MDC) lodged at the Sheraton, while their leader, Morgan
Tsvangirai, remained in Zimbabwe.
The African Union’s public response to Mr
Mugabe’s seizure of power was seen as a key measure of the organisation’s
commitment to democracy after Zimbabwe’s violent run-off elections.

Africa at war: The genocide spilling from the Darfur region of Sudan into
neighboring Chad has captured attention in the United States mainly because of
(belated) media coverage and an aggressive advocacy campaign by concerned
groups, but the prospects of Washington dealing with the problem seem slim.
Darfur, however, is only one of a pox of conflicts that, together with HIV/AIDS,
are depopulating parts of Africa and robbing it of potential wealth from
mineral, oil and gas deposits. Wars have also raged in Chad, Congo, Liberia,
Sierra Leone and Somalia. Were it not for the Iraq war, Washington may have
acted to stop what the Bush administration admits is genocide in Darfur, or
taken steps to prevent the chaos sweeping Somalia after a group affiliated with
al-Qaeda took over the country and left Ethiopia no choice but to invade in
hopes of preventing a more disastrous war. Unfortunately, even designating a
small presence of U.S. Special Forces to lead a U.N.-approved peacekeeping force
in Darfur appears beyond the capability of the badly stretched American
military.-

Formerly White ruled South Africa, now in the hands of blacks,
South Africans today are deeply demoralised people. The lights are going out
in homes, mines, factories and shopping malls as the national power authority,
Eskom - suffering from mismanagement, lack of foresight, a failure to maintain
power stations and a flight of skilled engineers to other countries - implements
rolling power cuts that plunge towns and cities into daily chaos.Major
industrial projects are on hold. The only healthy enterprise now worth being
involved in is the sale of small diesel generators to powerless households but
even this business has run out of supplies and spare parts from China.Newly
elected African National Congress (ANC) leader Jacob Zuma, the state
president-in-waiting, narrowly escaped being jailed for raping an HIV-positive
woman last year, and faces trial later this year for soliciting and accepting
bribes in connection with South Africa's shady multi-billion-pound arms deal
with British, German and French weapons manufacturers.Commenting on the massive
power cuts, Trevor Gaunt, professor of electrical engineering at the University
of Cape Town, who warned the government eight years ago of the impending crisis,
said: "The damage is huge, and now South Africa looks just like the rest of
Africa. Maybe it will take 20 years to recover."Last week, for example,
18-year-old Razelle Botha, who passed all her A-levels with marks of more than
90% and was about to train as a doctor, returned home with her father, Professor
Willem Botha, founder of the geophysics department at the University of
Pretoria, from buying pizzas for the family. Inside the house, armed gunmen
confronted them. They shot Professor Botha in the leg and pumped bullets into
Razelle.One severed her spine. Now she is fighting for her life and will never
walk again, and may never become a doctor. The gunmen stole a laptop computer
and a camera.Feeding the perfect storm are the two centres of ANC power in the
country at the moment. On the one hand, there is the ANC in parliament, led by
President Mbeki, who last Friday gave a state-of-the-nation address and
apologised to the country for the power crisis.Mbeki made only the briefest of
mentions of the national Aids crisis, with more than six million people
HIV-positive. He did not address the Scorpions crisis. The collapsing public
hospital system, under his eccentric health minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang,

Formerly White ruled Rhodesia, now renamed Zimbabwe and ruled by blacks,
HARARE (AFP) — Zimbabwe's inflation rate, already the highest in the world,
has soared to a new high of 66,212.3 percent, according to official figures
obtained by AFP on Thursday.Zimbabwe's economy has been on a downturn for the
past eight years characterised by galloping inflation and shortages of basic
foodstuffs such as sugar and cooking oil.At least 80 percent of the population
is living below the poverty threshold, often skipping meals to stretch their
income, which frequently fails to cover basic needs.-

Formerly White ruled Kenya, now ruled by blacks,
Several people were beaten and hacked to death with machetes in a Nairobi
slum Sunday in renewed ethnic fighting over Kenya's disputed election, residents
said.Elsewhere, police managed to quell more than two days of fierce fighting
around a Catholic monastery that killed 22 people and left 200 homes burned in
the Rift Valley, 190 miles northwest of the capital Nairobi, officials said.A
government commission says more than 600 people have been killed in violence
that erupted after the Dec. 27...One man staggered past with blood streaming
from the stump of his arm, which had been cut off with a machete. The arm was
taken by a group of youths and placed on top of a pile of stones barricading an
alleyway. In a separate incident, around 50 people attacked welder Dominic
Owour, a 23-year-old Luo, and tried to cut off both his hands at the forearm,
Owour said.Both men said police watching the attacks did not intervene.A local
reporter at the scene counted 14 people dead from machete wounds, three bodies
stuck with arrows and five people shot dead by police.-

Formerly White ruled Congo, now ruled by blacks,
Le Blanc and I are into our 500th kilometer on the river when he turns my
view of modern African history on its head. "We should just give it all back to
the whites," the riverboat captain says. "Even if you go 1,000 kilometers down
this river, you won't see a single sign of development. When the whites left, we
didn't just stay where we were. We went backwards.""The river is the artery of
Congo's economy," he says. "When the Belgians and the Portuguese were here,
there were farms and plantations — cashews, peanuts, rubber, palm oil. There was
industry and factories employing 3,000 people, 5,000 people. But since
independence, no Congolese has succeeded.Around 45,000 people die each month in
the DRC as a result of the social collapse brought on by civil war, according to
a study released in January by the International Rescue Committee. It estimated
the total loss of life between 1998 and April 2007 at 5.4 million. For many
Congolese like Le Blanc, the difficulties of today blot out the cruelties of the
past. "On this river, all that you see — the buildings, the boats — only whites
did that. After the whites left, the Congolese did not work. We did not know how
to. For the past 50 years, we've just declined." He pauses. "They took this
country by force," he says, with more than a touch of admiration. "If they came
back, this time we'd give them the country for free."-

Formerly White ruled Detroit, now ruled by blacks,
Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick took his text message scandal to the Michigan
Supreme Court on Friday, urging justices to strike down decisions from two lower
courts to provide the public with secret documents he used to settle police
whistle-blower lawsuits last year for $8.4 million.The city filed the appeal
under seal, but city law director John E. Johnson Jr. said in a statement the
city asked the high court to consider the same arguments that were rejected
Wednesday by the Michigan Court of Appeals and on Feb. 5 by Wayne County Circuit
Judge Robert Colombo Jr., in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the
Free Press.Councilman Kwame Kenyatta said in a statement, "Either the mayor has
something to hide or he's buying packing time.""When you have two lower courts
going against you, it's pretty rough," said Wayne State University law professor
Peter Henning. "It's any litigant's right to seek review, but it's not a
cost-free decision."He questioned -- as have many council members -- whether the
city Law Department is acting on behalf of the city or just the mayor.-

here is a photographic essay
of the post-White ruin that has come upon Detroit.
Formerly White ruled New Orleans, now ruled by blacks,
As District Attorney Eddie Jordan descended last week to his moment of
greatest political vulnerability, a group of prominent business leaders met with
New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin to craft an exit strategy for the beleaguered
prosecutor -- one that chiefly involved giving him a soft landing in a private
sector job, sources familiar with the talk said Tuesday.The unprecedented move
ends a tenure mired in criticism over a widely perceived failure to successfully
prosecute violent criminals, chronic turnover in his office, and most recently
the bizarre disclosure that a robbery suspect fled to Jordan's Algiers house
only to then become a suspect in the shooting of a New Orleans police
officer.Now, Jordan's undoing appears rooted in one of his first official acts:
Systematically firing white employees and replacing them with black applicants
two weeks after taking office. While it's hardly uncommon for politicians to
clean house and install loyalists, a federal jury of eight white and two black
jurors unanimously found that Jordan, who is black, fired 43 employees -- all
white but for one Hispanic -- because of their race.Of 56 total dismissals, 53
of the employees were white. Within six months of his administration, Jordan had
hired 68 people, 92 percent of them African-American. Critics further have
suggested that the firings had the effect of stripping the office of
institutional knowledge and experienced talent, throwing its daily management
into confusion and setting off a trend of poor working conditions and chronic
turnover.This criticism climaxed this summer, when his office dismissed charges
against suspects in the 2006 murders of musician and teacher Dinerral Shavers
and the Central City massacre that left five teenagers dead in the street. Both
cases fell apart, with Jordan claiming uncooperative witnesses.Earlier this
year, Jordan was further lambasted for his office's repeated release of
suspects, even occasionally ones arrested for violent crimes, because his
prosecutors could not make a decision about whether to press charges under the
state mandated deadline. These releases are called "701s," shorthand for Article
701 of the Louisiana Code of Criminal Procedure, which states that no one can be
held longer than 60 days on a felony arrest without an indictment.In the latest
and strangest flare-up, police recently questioned Jordan after robbery suspect
Elton Phillips, 20, allegedly fled to his home after holding up a man outside a
nearby Algiers Shell station.-

Race...

By way of Sailer,

The prestigious philosophy of science journal Biology and Philosophy has published an attack on the Race Does Not Exist conventional wisdom:
-source
.
.
.
.

It is nowadays a dominant opinion in a number of disciplines (anthropology,
genetics, psychology, philosophy of science) that the taxonomy of human
races does not make much biological sense. My aim is to challenge the arguments
that are usually thought to invalidate the biological concept of race.

...

In fact, Dobzhansky’s argument should be taken one step further: the essentialist
requirement is so unrealistically demanding that, if this criterion were applied, even
the species concept would fail to pass muster: ‘‘In practice, the characters that define
a species will not be present in all members of that species and absent from all
members of other species. Nature is too variable’’ (Ridley 2004, 349).

...

One of the leading physical anthropologists warned about the tendency of some
scientists to misrepresent the true view of their scientific community. He said that
the idea widely propagated by many scientists that race is only skin deep ‘‘is simply
not true, as any experienced forensic anthropologist will affirm’’ (Gill 2000). He
went further and stated that the bias of the race-denial faction ‘‘seems to stem
largely from socio-political motivation and not science at all’’ (ibid.). And finally:
‘‘At the beginning of the twenty-first century, even as a majority of biological
anthropologists favor the reality of the race perspective, not one introductory
textbook of physical anthropology even presents that perspective as a possibility. In
a case as flagrant as this, we are not dealing with science but rather with blatant,
politically motivated censorship’’ (ibid.).

Really though, this shouldn't be necessary.

In fact it would be much easier to argue that any given person is a "social construct" than it would be race.

After all, the individual identity of "Joe Sixpack" is entirely (pragmatically speaking) a social construct.
From his birth certificate and social security number to his wedding license and financial records, his identity is, essentially, socially constructed.

Does that mean he is not a biological reality as well?

Us, Them And They...

Believe it or not, it is election time again. The Texas Republican Primary is only seven short weeks away and already both parties have turned their attack dogs loose on me . . . doing everything they can to make sure I am defeated.

Never mind all the good I have been able to accomplish for freedom and the American taxpayer in Congress, the enemies of freedom and the elites in Washington want me gone.

-ronpaul.com


Well Ron, that is the situation you face when you have no literal Us to stand with. Your supporters are anybody who happens along and who momentarily "digs your style".

What you have is a proposition platform and a proposition ideology. You have no literal people to fall back on for support and strength.

Creeds can be ignored. Agreements, tossed aside.

And philosophies and political ideologies are always mutating, maturing and/or adapting.


But a biological people; a nation in the traditional sense, is the rock upon which we find shelter from the many storms of life. It gives us meaning and definition, regardless of whatever turbulent isms are floating about in any given century.

Haiti In America...

What, besides perfect weather, does modern California have in common with Apartheid-era South Africa? More than meets the eye.

That California is in deep financial trouble is no secret. Also no secret (at least while Lou Dobbs was on the air) is that a major source of the trouble is the swollen population of low-income Hispanics who pay no income taxes while needing more social services than the working-class Americans they displaced.

Demographics Is Destiny...

Zimbabwe was just the latest African state to squander its potential, to swap civil society for civil strife and pile high its corpses.

Then the wrecking virus moves on and a fresh spasm of violence erupts elsewhere.
Congo, Ivory Coast, Sudan, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, even Kenya. Take your pick, for it is the essence of Africa, the recurring A-Z of horror. And as surely as Nelson Mandela took those steps from captivity to freedom, his own country will doubtless shuffle into chaos and ruin.

Mark my words. One day it will be the turn of South Africa to revert to type, its farms that lie wasted and its towns that are battle zones, its dreams and expectations that lie rotting on the veldt. That is the way of things. Africa rarely surprises, it simply continues to appal.


When interviewed on BBC Radio, the legendary South African jazz musician Hugh Masekela spoke of the 350-year struggle for freedom by blacks in South Africa.


The man might play his trumpet like a dream, but he talks arrant nonsense.


What he has bought into is a false narrative that rewrites history and plays upon post-colonial liberal angst.

The construct is as follows:


white, inglorious and bad; black, noble and good; empire, bad; independence, good; the west, bad; the African, good.


Forgotten in all this is that while Europeans were settling and spreading from the Cape, the psychopathic Shaka Zulu was employing his impi to crush everyone—including the Xhosa—in his path, and the Xhosa were themselves busy slaughtering Bushmen and Hottentots.


Yet it is the whites who take the rap, for it was they who won the skirmishes along the Fish and Blood Rivers and who eventually gained the prize.


What suffers is the truth, and—of course—Africa. We are so cowed by the moist-eyed mantras of the left and the oath-laden platitudes of Bono and Geldof, we are forced to accept collective responsibility for the bloody mess that is now Africa. It paralyses us while excusing the black continent and its rulers.


Whenever I hear people agitate for the freezing of Third World debt, I want to shout aloud for the freezing of those myriad overseas bank accounts held by black African leaders (President Mobutu of Zaire alone is believed to have squirreled away well over $10 billion).


Whenever apartheid is held up as a blueprint for evil, I want to mention Bokassa snacking on human remains, Amin clogging a hydro-electric dam with floating corpses, the President of Equatorial Guinea crucifying victims along the roadway from his airport.


Whenever slavery is dredged up, I want to remind everyone the Arabs were there before us, the native Ashanti and others were no slouches at the game, and it remains extant in places like the Ivory Coast.


Whenever I hear the Aids pandemic somehow blamed on western indifference, I want to point to the African native practice of dry sex, the hobby-like prevalence of rape and the clumps of despotic black leaders who deny a link between the disease and HIV and who block the provision of antiretrovirals.


And whenever Africans bleat of imperialism and colonialism, I want to campaign for the demolition of every road, college, and hospital we ever built to let them start again. It is time they governed themselves. Yet few play the victim card quite so expertly as black Africans; few are quite so gullible as the white liberal-left.

Even recently and in America,

The demographic catastrophe presently decimating American Jewry is not in dispute. Without numbing you with statistics, the basic facts are absolutely clear and chilling. The 6 million Jews in America will probably number no more than a couple of million by midcentury. This would make the Jewish percentage of the American population about the same as it was during the Civil War. After the Civil War, the Jews in America tripled as a result of European Jewish immigration in the first two decades of the 20th century.

How could such a narrative, so often repeated and shown to be false, perpetuate through the ages with out the media exposing it?

'JEWISH POWER DOMINATES AT VANITY FAIR'
by Nathan Burstien

"It's a list of "the world's most powerful people," 100 of the bankers and media moguls, publishers and image makers who shape the lives of billions. It's an exclusive, insular club, one whose influence stretches around the globe but is concentrated strategically in the highest corridors of power.
More than half its members, at least by one count, are Jewish."

Every Now And Then...

The truth gets out.

The recent theft and retrieval of the infamous "Arbeit Macht Frei" ("Work Sets You Free") sign that marks the gateway into Auschwitz has reignited debate over what should be done with the sombre monument to one of humanity's darkest hours.

Last week Poland's culture minister promised the equivalent of $137,000 for improving security at the site where more than one million people died during the Holocaust.

But Robert Jan Van Pelt, an architectural historian and a leading expert on Auschwitz, says it may be time to consider other strategies for the site, which is split into two camps, Auschwitz and Birkenau. They sprawl over nearly 500 acres.

...

By allowing nature to take over the site, do we run the risk of allowing humanity to forget what happened and set the stage for future questioning of the Holocaust?

Ninety-nine per cent of what we know we do not actually have the physical evidence to prove . . . it has become part of our inherited knowledge.

In Absence Of The "White Devil"....

Societies de-evolve to the state at which they were BEFORE the European arrived.

It is rare to hear former Marxist revolutionaries apologise for having successfully driven out an imperialist power decades before. In the rundown former British colony of Aden, a backwater that was once one of the world’s key shipping hubs, such regrets are not uncommon.

“I am sorry about what happened,” said Ahmed Mighali Said, 77, who fought the British Army in the bloody four-year uprising known as the Aden Emergency, which ended with Britain’s withdrawal in 1967. “Under the British we had peace. The Yemeni fighters were ignorant. I hope the British come back.”

The rueful attitude of many former fighters is less a nostalgia for British colonial rulers than a reaction to southern Yemen’s disastrous history since they left.

Civil wars, an unpopular union with the Islamic north and the subsequent neglect of the south by the Sanaa Government — which is accused of hogging the profit from its oil and gas — are again fuelling a desire to break away, adding to the chaos in a country targeted by al-Qaeda as a new sanctuary.
