Spooky Video and Puppet Show and Open Thread

This is, I'm sure, a hoax. A hoax which gains credibility, rather than loses it, due to its shaky, low-production-values nature.

I imagine the psychology would go like this: That video is so damn cheaply put together, there's no way those guys have any ability to pull a hoax!

I don't want to say more. I do think this is effective. See if it gives you the spooks.

I accidentally clicked on a commenter's name - a 20-something Detroiter, not black, who thought having a curfew just encourages people to riot. The FIRST post by this stupid young man was a complaint that his car insurance rate went up.

He has no freaking clue what his home insurance - even renter's insurance - is going to look like if the freaks riot without restraint.

I found a list of examples of White Privilege at Harper's Bazaar:https://tinyurl.com/ycyr82vfHere's an example:
#17 is "I can criticise our government and talk about how much I fear its
policies and behaviour without being seen as a cultural outsider."
But doesn't that basically describe everyone left of center? So it's like they're accusing us of possessing the privilege that they already have.

I was working the front desk and he was a waiter. He had to walk past a room we used for events, that wasn't being used that night. At one point he asked me what the lady in the white dress was doing in the event room, since it was closed. He thought it was a real person, and almost quit on the spot when I told him he has seen the ghost bride.

Interestingly, the only guys I have ever dated or been involved with have been dark (like Idris or darker) or white.

Seriously, this is so insane is almost defies belief. These idiots really believe that crime can be wished away, that there are no bad people, just poor misunderstood drug addicts and mentally ill folks who'll quit committing crimes if we just give them a hug or some time in a rehab facility.

Reminds me of Obama and his insistence (which he still maintains to this day) that islamic terrorists are motivated to kill only because they lack jobs and education. This despite the fact that all the 9/11 hijackers were well-funded, middle-class (or better) college graduates, and several held graduate degrees. And the ISIS leader had a Ph.D. in islamic theology. And one of the AQ leaders was a physician. But no matter how much evidence there is that the theory is wrong, Obama (and his lefty ilk) just won't let it go, because it's what they WANT to believe.

Thousands of armed but peaceful protestors in Michigan last month. Did it stop? No, the tranny tyrant turned the screws even harder.

Protests in Pennsylvania to reopen their businesses. Counties threatening to ignore the governor. Did he relent? No, he threatened to withhold state funding. But today he marches arm in arm with so-called protestors.

What is the unfortunate lesson that is being learned? Violence gets results. It may cost in terms of public opinion but it gains you power, and if you have power then who cares about public opinion. That's what they're teaching, and for those who have no moral compass this is a lesson that will be deadly (to their opponents).

Even though there will be people of all backgrounds who suffer in what will become little more than the Paris Commune at The Terror stage, no federal troops should be sent.

Now, in America, it is the U-Haul index.

To be Devil's advocate for a moment: The Minneapolis PD is the only PD dep't in the country which has had 2 separate cases where officers were charged with the Murder of an unarmed civilian, with many officers involved. This is one seriously F'd up Police Department. It might be necessary to completely abolish this department, fire everyone at all levels, and then rebuild a replacement from the ground up.

I think many have forgotten that this was done in New Orleans in 2005 - 2007, which is why the Nat'l Guard had to do police duties for 18 months there. And it was an absolutely necessary move.

now of course I know Minneapolis will screw the whole thing up, but it's still not a bad idea to fire everyone in that PD.

That's true, but it's one of the hardest concepts to get into a leftist's head. I've tried. "It's a social contract, we delegate our vengeance to the state." They can't understand that, they think prison is just for rehabilitation and simply will not think about victims of crime in any meaningful way.

NYU Business Professor: Covid Has Begun a Long-Overdue Collapse of the American Education System, and They Deserve Everything They're Going to Get

Two videos of him, below, making the same basic points. He's on shows hosted by people you wil not like (Amanapour, Cooper), but he's worth listening to.

His basic notion is this:

American education has long been absurdly overpriced. He notes this is the only industry in America which has yet to face significant pressures to cost-cut.

He says that parents are getting to see what their $76,000 per year is buying them-- because now they can see the witless profs lecturing to their kids on the Zoom sessions they have online.

And parents are thinking: "This is worthless. I am spending $300,000 for something absolutely worthless."

Not just worthless -- in addition to the debt, there are four years (at least) of lost wages and lost experience to consider.

He also notes that many students -- maybe the most in recent history -- will decide to skil college next year, because college might not even be all the way open. Many will take "a gap year."

This will cause many colleges to go bankrupt.

The top tier schools, he notes, will be fine, because 1, they're sittting on billions of dollars in endowments (which he thinks should be taxed -- and so do I) and 2, because they have long, long wait lists, and they can grab up as many just-as-good-as-our-first-pick students as are needed.

Second tier schools will have to dig down deeper into the wait lists and will have to admit students that would not be considered qualified in normal years, but most of them will be fine. (Most.)

But third tier schools do not have waiting lists, and all the students that would have gone to them will be going to second tier schools.

They will go bankrupt. He says that education will face what every other industry has faced, a bunch of weak concerns going bankrupt and pressure to cost-cut for the rest.

Some second tier schools will go bankrupt or at least will be forced into drastic changes: specifically, second-rate schools that charge very high tuition.

And I know America has a lot of those. The high tuition doesn't seem to be justified except to exclude less wealthy students from a school that isn't really exclusive in any way except for having an exclusive pricetag.

Posted by: Mike Hammer at June 04, 2020 07:05 PM (786Ro)

34 Nice to hear but I doubt much progress will be made.

As he noted the top schools are wealthy beyond words, $ literally no issue for them, for decades, or ever, without a single student.

And state schools - equally toxic and disastrous in most respects - will be bailed out almost everywhere.

And no way there's more than 1/2 year missed. Many systems have already announced fall semester is on, as they're not idiots and recognize the flu is literally a non-issue for the student demo, and just a flu for anyone else under 65.

So, can't really get excited about this.

Even more pessimistic addendum: anyone think that 1/2 to one year of mild financial pain for one slice of colleges will have any, any impact whatsoever on the toxic miseducation/indoctrination they now provide? Didn't think so.

Posted by: rhomboid at June 04, 2020 07:05 PM (El6T/)

35 I have been saying for years now on here that, what passes for a college or university, is really just a juevinile Country Club for spoiled kids. Not to mention they have turned into indoctrination centers for communism and anarchy.

After 4 years of high school, do 3 years of service....Military, sweeping streets, digging ditches, what ever...then decide on what you want to study ( if anything ) and study THAT and only THAT and at a community college. Very much like they do in Israel.

87 As someone who teaches at a small Texas college, I'll strongly object to being called "third-tier."
The thing is that, after two decades of intersections hiring practices, the big schools have an ethnically diverse and largely female faculty that can't teach, can't write, and can't research. All the talent has been pushed into these smaller schools. The result is that not only are these small colleges much cheaper, but the quality of instruction is demonstratively superior. The classes are much smaller, as well. And not insanely politically partisan, as well.

91 All those wishcasting state-level fiscal constraints, talk to the Fed about the new "facility" states can access.

If it's as bad as I fear, in practice, it will sort of be the final collapse of any real governance when it comes to $$.

It will take the disastrous national model, in which the US uses its unique position as the world's reserve currency and best/biggest capital market to essentially print money/incur debt without any constraint or limit whatever, to fund federal deficits - and for the first time provide the same to states.

We'll see. But that is clearly what IL, NY, CA, WA, and many other horribly mismanaged states want. And nothing the Fed has done since 2008 has shown any trace of sense or responsibility.

That's what parents have been paying hundreds of thousands of dollars for. I hope they're proud.

This isn't new or unknown by the way. The reason they get away with it is most of the expense comes on taxpayers, many of whom don't even go to college. Congress slowly took over the entire system of college finance, and they hand them money every year.

Because "everyone" has a right to a college education that turns them into a future Antifa or BLM terrorist, who is also a guaranteed Democrat vote.

157 There is a very high likelihood that by the end of 2021 my high school (which went under a few years ago) and both colleges I attended for undergrad will be closed. One of those closing will be especially difficult to see because my father was affiliated with it for 20+ years.

But it's unsustainable. These are small religious colleges and there is just not the market for it. It's not sustainable for how the number of schools there are and it's consolidating.

On a personal level, it will be great for me because it will mean that my past is disappearing and I don't have to lift a finger to do it.

These institutions do nothing but pump this stuff into our society - why are they allowed to hold themselves aloof from what they demand of everyone else?

For students - collectivize the grades: everybody gets an averaged grade across the entire student body. Oh, there's all kinds of stuff one can do with this.

They demand "equality". Give it to them in spades. Choke them with equality until they "can't breathe".

Yep. The idea, at least at UC, has been to admit various totally unqualified people* to do bogus majors, while also admitting a bunch of Chinese students who pay overseas tuition (yum!) and maintain to some extent the academic reputation of the UC campuses.

*When CA got rid of its exit exam, a ridiculously easy exam (per my kids) taken in the sophomore year of HS, and testing 10th grade grasp of English and eighth grade grasp of mathematics, the LAT featured kids gushing that now they could take up their place at, e.g., Berkeley. Because after flunking the test in their sophomore, junior, and senior years (same test, multiple shots on goal) they couldn't attend Berkeley.

But once the test was eliminated, it was "Cal, here I come!" Temporarily, at least.

College is exactly what you put into it. If you're a striver, the degree is just part of your capabilities. In fact you probably didn't need the degree to begin with, but it used to serve as a backstop should you need it to strive for someone else.

Posted by: SorryBlackOrchid at June 04, 2020 07:32 PM (j9HX3)


The universities dropping the SAT have not thought this through, which doesn't surprise me because they're run by idiots.

Whether they realize it or not, they're moving toward the Ohio State model, which takes all comers, but then applies a vicious attrition rate. I can't imagine that that makes for a happy environment.

The alternative is to have a bunch of watered-down courses, but in my experience with UC's various spasms of admitting ghetto kids, they drop out quickly even from watered-down courses because they're bored.

So, if you're not to screen for academic skills, how to avoid blowing a hole in the student body? Over-admit, and then weed them out (or let them weed themselves out) later.

I remember reading something about the 90s being the last time you could work through the year and realistically afford to pay for college as you went.

Interestingly, it all changed right around the time when educators began insisting everyone was college material and should take out loans to go to college. For some weird reason the costs starting shooting up soon after.

Friend runs a summer institute that normally has interesting visa challenges as they bring in people from all over the world, especially f***ed up conflict zones - thing is already cancelled, so can't use his data to get a read on the visa thing.

But I noted right after Trump's statement last week on Chi-Nah that we'd just seen the big course change on China policy, no more "compartmentalizing" trade from everything else. All on the table now. I would hope/expect that to include the Chinese student issue, a massive security and economic and sovereignty issue in its own right.

last time you could work through the year and realistically afford to
pay for college as you went.



Interestingly, it all changed right around the time when educators
began insisting everyone was college material and should take out loans
to go to college. For some weird reason the costs starting shooting up
soon after.

308 There are about 205 law schools in the United States. At least 50 of them should close immediately because they are not needed. However, the American Bar Association runs a nice scam to flood the market with new lawyers, some of whom will never will get a job as a lawyer.

But the law professors, many of whom never tried a case in their career, make big bank based on unlimited student loans.

This is in contrast to medical schools, which limit the supply of doctors by having small medical school classes and a smallish supply of schools.

I grew up watching Good Times in the 70's as a very young child. Grievances and bitching and hardship and The Man keeping them down, etc.

Then, The Cosby Show came along in 1984 and the American black family was shown in a whole new light. And it was well received. The Cosbys put to rest all the bullshit we endured in the 60's and 70's with the racial shit. It was a new beginning of a post-racial time.

But the Racists didn't like that so they continued to stoke the racist fires. By 1992, thanks to Los Angeles and the TV news, the black community was set back 30 years and never recovered, but got even worse.

Wayne State University was a commuter-friendly college in the mid-to-late '90s. The president, David Adamani, kept tuition increases low and put money into restoring existing buildings (e.g. the original college building with its Art Deco tile). Because of that, students could actually write off part of their tuition on state taxes - which was great.

As soon as he left, tuition was raised AND fees were added that had no benefit to commuters or evening-class students. I paid for parking lots that closed early (the high-rise parking structure cost $1 to $2 a day and was an easy, safe walk from almost any building). I paid for a rec center that had faculty-only hours at the only times I could have used it. And the increase was such that it exceeded the state tax limits.

377 87 As someone who teaches at a small Texas college, I'll strongly object to being called "third-tier."
The thing is that, after two decades of intersections hiring practices, the big schools have an ethnically diverse and largely female faculty that can't teach, can't write, and can't research. All the talent has been pushed into these smaller schools. The result is that not only are these small colleges much cheaper, but the quality of instruction is demonstratively superior. The classes are much smaller, as well. And not insanely politically partisan, as well.
I'll put my local, little American History or Archaeology class against anything taught at Harvard. It's a first-tier course.

I'll go further: you don't go to Hahvahd or Yale or any Ivy League school for the education. You go there to (my favorite word - /s) NETWORK!!!

Same with big state schools like UT Austin.

379 308 There are about 205 law schools in the United States. At least 50 of them should close immediately because they are not needed. However, the American Bar Association runs a nice scam to flood the market with new lawyers, some of whom will never will get a job as a lawyer.

But the law professors, many of whom never tried a case in their career, make big bank based on unlimited student loans.

This is in contrast to medical schools, which limit the supply of doctors by having small medical school classes and a smallish supply of schools.

This right here. I'd love to go to law school, but the market is so saturated with lawyers, it wouldn't be worth it. And this is why.

Important Question: Should White Americans Be Forced to Literally Bend the Knee to Black Americans?

Before that, here's some Racial Hatred, Racial Supremacy and Systemic Racism in actual practice in the real world. Which hasn't been talked about except on Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity and a half dozen other conservative venues.

The alleged "conservative" media has of course suppressed this the same as the leftwing media they supposedly oppose has.

Could it be that that particular thug was animated to beat the shit out of an ancient white guy because he drinks from a fire hydrant of noxious anti-white propaganda every day?

Shouldn't the media, which is forever playing Hall Monitor to everyone (but mostly white people) to patrol their language be concerned about the possibility that a constant torrent of anti-white hate speech could spur some to think that there is a Social Permission to assault or kill whites?

Given that the media itself is a prime propagator of this sort of hate speech -- always promoting every story featuring white-on-black violence, but ruthlessly suppressing the many more instances of black-on-white violence -- shouldn't they be more concerned about the effect of constant IV drip reinforcement of racial animus that they themselves are providing?

If there's no worries about "backlash" against whites for making every single case of white-on-black virus a national story that dominates the headlines, why are they so absolutely scrupulous about making sure that almost no stories about black-on-white crime are reported even locally, never mind nationally?

Four years ago, on Evergreen Community State College campus, #Woke minority progressives began imposing race-based rules on whites. Whites could not attend campus on certain days. Whites could not speak when a minority was minoritysplaining to them about Oppression.

Whites even had to fetch black students things, like a power charger or a bottle of water, when a black student needed us.

No one really said anything. No one objected.

No one said, "This is just Jim Crow enforced racial subservience with the serial number filed off and the colors reversed. This is unamerican and cannot be tolerated."

Nah. Everyone was quiet.

It was an uncomfortable topic, you see, and you can't expect paid professional writers in the political press to ever risk their career advancement schedule by writing about an uncomfortable topic.

Our brave Conservative Press -- the only people in America who cannot lose their jobs by speaking about an uncomfortable topic -- have decided as a whole to just remain silent.

Hey guys, can you pause as you're leaving the room? We all want a chance to applaud you for your fearlessness.

Has ignoring the metastacization of "social justice" into increasingly virulent positive racism, and our tacit blessing of it by silence, make it "just go away"?

Why no. In fact, demands for racial subservience grew in intensity, aggressiveness, and ambition.

The Tucker Carlson monologue below is a must-watch.

Especially the part with the black man accosting a white woman on the street and demanding she kneel before him and apologize for her white privilege.

And... she does!

This is exactly what we have allowed -- by refusing, like cowards, to condemn it and stay firmly that this shall not be abided -- to become an increasingly mainstream view of how American whites must bow and scrape to any minority who demands to be treated as a Racial Aristocrat.

A female friend of mine said something like this: "It's not just maddening that a black man is now bullying a white women on the street and demanding she prostrate themselves like a servant -- it's that you're not even permitted to say this is wrong, and why it is wrong. You're supposed to remain silent and through your silence confirm that this is okay."

I sure the hell don't want to demand blacks kneel before me like slaves and beg my forgiveness for attacking white people, like that old man in Governor Whitmer's nursing home.

That is racist. That is absurdly racist. That is actually racially supremacist to demand.

If I did that, I imagine I'd be fucking punched. I mean, cancelled on twitter of course, but I imagine I'd get some Real Life Dunking too.

And I could not claim I did not deserve it.

So please tell me:

Why are whites expected to kneel for blacks to apologize for shit that some random white guy did?

Where did this particular black guy get the idea that he could accost a stranger of another race and demand that she demonstrate racial subservience to him?

In that exchange, between a larger, stronger, more physically intimidating black man, and a smaller, weaker, less imposing white woman, who had the "Racial Power"?

Who was the oppressor in that situation?

That's right -- the White Woman was. Because Shut Up You Racist.

And why are the alleged Guardians of the Constitution, the "conservative" media, so hesitant to call this out and say that this is a racist evil that must stop?

I've been warning about the New Jim Crow -- just like the Old Jim Crow, filled with rules about how one race must defer to another, and must never talk back to the other race, and must even now kneel like a supplicant before one race -- for a while now.


Is this racial justice? Demanding white people now become steppinfechits for the black superior race?

By the way, once we speed up immigration and give the vote to millions of illegals -- and white people become a minority faster than they would otherwise -- do you imagine these demands for whites to subordinate themselves and give deference to other races will suddenly stop, or will it become even more extreme and more foul now that they have more power to impose it?

I say it will become worse -- much worse.

Especially because white liberals are affirmatively stating that yes, whites should be made to be an officially second-class caste, and white "respectable conservatives" are endorsing this view tacitly by refusing to speak a word against it.

I'm sure this will all go away. Ignore the fact that it gets worse every year -- just assume it will go away if we continue pretending it away.

We ignored it when we first saw it at Evergreen State College, and now we all have the pleasure of living as captives on Evergreen State College campus.

So now that the Evergreen State College racial caste system is now taking hold in the cities, I'm sure if we just ignore it more, it will finally just go away.

Without anyone having to say something "controversial," like "No race (including the white race) should be made into a subservient lower caste and forced to carry around the collective guilty of every sin committed by a member of that race."

See, that's "controversial" for the "respectable" conservative media because it mentions that maybe whites are subject to racial prejudice and hatred and the respectable conservatives' liberal friends have all declared that it is racist to suggest that whites could be the victims of racism.

Racism against whites is not racism; racism against whites is merely Just Deserts and the Long Arc of History Bending Towards Racial Justice with Some Racial Vengeance Too.


Special Acknowledgment to John Sexton. one of the very few people in the paid "conservative" press who has covered the Evergreen State College racial caste system.

I have to admit that while I read most of his coverage, I only occasionally wrote about it myself. And some of it was so infuriating -- and so dispiriting, so depressing -- I couldn't force myself to read more of it.

But he kept on documenting every ugly racist bit of it.

42 This is more to break the American ethos than anything else. Our system depends on a united populace of free, equal and guaranteed rights. It doesn't yield to race, religion or anything else. It depends on the ideal the equal liberty and justice is shared by all citizens who are "American" before anything else.

That is, it does not bow to any one person or groups ideals.

They want to divide you, because it is easier to control us like that. Together, united we can kick their asses as we always have. Assaults on liberty don't rouse one race, they all people who live under the blanket of freedom. They don't want that. They can't have that to succeed in tearing our republic down.

Don't let them divide you against your neighbor or subjugate you with their tactics. Fight it. Understand your neighbor and fight with them against this scourge.

Colorado also had a few counties that wanted to secede but they're not permitted to do so because of state law as made by Denver, which... makes no sense, especially in an age when the left think they can simply ignore the law if they don't like it.

The obstruct them at every turn to the best of your ability. Rip the mask off the moment you're seated. Take their documents and post them online. Record their meetings and post those, too.

139 As has been said, white people need to decide if they are going to simply disengage from black America to the extent they can and leave them to their own devices and their own policing and let the chips fall where they may.

We can view it along the lines of the Benedict option, we could call it the Derbyshire Option.

Because as we have seen, the death of a single black suspect at the hands of a white cop has set the country ablaze.

Another thing to contemplate, if white people have a blood debt for the sins of slavery that can never be washed away, shouldn't black people have a blood gratitude for having been freed that can never be diminished?


Because, black people did not free themselves, they were freed at the cost of the deaths of hundreds of thousands of white people.

They were given rights as equals by white people.

Trillions of dollars have been spent for their betterment by white people.

None of that had to happen, they could have been dealt with the way human history has dealt with difficult circumstances and problematic populations.

But they weren't.

There is no race of people that have tried to atone for their sins more than white people have.


And yet it does not seem to be enough or will anything be enough because at the end of the day it's all bullshit.

160 I have to admit that while I read most of his coverage, I only occasionally wrote about it myself. And some of it was so infuriating -- and so dispiriting, so depressing -- I couldn't force myself to read more of it.

Exactly.


No, I will not kneel. No, I will not bow. I am no one's servant and I will not prostate myself before anyone.

Generally I despise the formulation that silence is acceptance because I despise forced speech. However, this isn't about you must stand and clap and don't you dare be the first one to stop. This is refusing to call out terrible behavior to put a stop to it before the behavior becomes worse. That's a different matter entirely.

What is being created is the expectation that you will quite literally kneel before another to show supplication and that if you do not, you are a white supremacist. That is you object to this as racist itself, you are a white supremacist.

It is nearing the end point of all views which are not whatever is this exact moment's deemed pure view are Satanic.

What a stupid time to be alive.

"Racism is not dead. But it is on life-support, kept alive mainly by the people who use it for an excuse or to keep minority communities fearful or resentful enough to turn out as a voting bloc on election day."

And he makes this decision fast, and when he's decided it, he does not change his mind.

Interesting.

A "code hero," I guess is the term for it. He's a knight looking for a worthy lord to serve, but will accept a guy who has good manners as worthy.

(He nearly did the same to the small man who showed courage and dignity in The Big Sleep, but that guy got killed before he could attach himself to him as a knight.)

I have personally decided to cut black people as much as possible out of my life. It's a horrible decision to have made but it probably will prove to be a wise choice in the long run. Where I live, and in my personal life, it is hard to do this but I have started and urge other whites to follow suit. Call me racist or bigoted--I don't care--but I suspect this will be an initial response to what you have described. It probably won't work and will end in a situation like Bosnia, but the die has been cast, I'm not responsible for it, and I'm taking rational actions in response.

232 white people need to decide if they are going to simply disengage from black America

I've been thinking the same about disengagement. Maybe we should just take our toys and money and go home, let them fend for themselves.

Since nearly all blacks are Democrats, if you assume the worst about your average Negro you have a 80-90% change of being right. If you're a gambler or a trader, you take that bet EVERY TIME.

Yeah it might probably suck for the few that aren't Leftists, but that's not my problem anymore. We all know who our conservative Friends of Color are.

235 As has been said, white people need to decide if they are going to simply disengage from black America to the extent they can and leave them to their own devices and their own policing and let the chips fall where they may.

I'm more of a cultural bigot. I don't buy into this race thing that the Darwinists have been pushing, rather I look back to tribes.

There are quite a number of descendants of Japheth that have been at war with each other in Europe for millennia.

That said, if the Cushites want to keep their traditions and culture and it conflicts with my mix of Gomer and Magog, then I will just quietly go about my business.

Interestingly, the study of Spiritual Apartheid would show that the true war is between the regenerated person and the carnal. Those who are regenerate don't have the conflicts of "race" and "ethnicity" within the family of the Church.

Its the carnal who remains depraved and constantly in conflict with pretty much everyone.

Sam Spade was the asshoe. He's heartless, sleeps around with his partner's wife, and by his own admission is only as good as he has to be.

A "code hero," I guess is the term for it. He's a knight looking for a worthy lord to serve, but will accept a guy who has good manners as worthy.

That's a good way of putting it. He fights for virtue in a miserable, vice-wracked world as a knight looking for a quest. He's only human, so he fails and things go wrong, but he keeps trying and through it all does not get corrupted no matter how awful things get.

244 203 One Phillip Marlowe trope I've noticed is that he suddenly decides to become, essentially, a sworn knight of someone, just because they exhibit some virtue (sometimes quite minor) that he doesn't see much in our grubby modern age.

And he makes this decision fast, and when he's decided it, he does not change his mind.

Interesting.

A "code hero," I guess is the term for it. He's a knight looking for a worthy lord to serve, but will accept a guy who has good manners as worthy.

(He nearly did the same to the small man who showed courage and dignity in The Big Sleep, but that guy got killed before he could attach himself to him as a knight.)

Posted by: ace at June 04, 2020 06:15 PM (PbpT7)

He does have the 'knight' aspect to him. But he treats everyone pretty terribly, he never seems to actually save anyone, he refuses to accept money even when it's well-intentioned and has this passive-agressive thing with women that I've ranted about before.

He's the guy who grabs a girl, kisses her and then calls her a whore.

He's pretty good at getting what he calls justice and truth...but then he'll also cover it up, like at the end of The Big Sleep.

Virginia opened my eyes to how it would more likely take place with 95% of counties giving the finger to Blackface. California as a whole would never secede, but a majority of their counties would. It makes more sense for counties to join together and form new states. Upstate New York would become its own state, etc.

Rather than simply try to do it legally with a process, just do it and co-opt as much of the national guard to defend yourself militarily from any state as stupid as fuck in thinking they can take your counties back by force.

295 there's a line in The Long Goodbye, when he's in jail as a material witness, where he's about to say nasty shit to the cop guading him but the cop shows him some minor decency.

He says something like, "That's the trouble with cops. They make it easy to hate them, but then, one of them goes all human on you."

He's not ALWAYS terrible.

311 Go back 50 years and there was a lot of this same "I'm Black, I'm Proud" black power attitude. Pride of heritage is one thing, threatening whitey that he must grovel and say your slogan is another ... and it was the same back then. "We are aggrieved, bow before us or we will hurt you".

Fast Forward to 20 years ago, someone I know closely in management for a local SnP corp ... had a black woman come for a nice job, she was confronted by the "black locals" about how it is ... they are their own thing, not part of the white thing. (that is the simplest I can describe it). I think she ended up leaving for a safer place. (Quincy is like 6% black)


It's a strange thing, but as with the whole move toward "African American", there is a lot of intent to maintain their own separate grouping. (which is praised, but for whitey, it means only KKK if they are proud of the WASPy founders)

The MSM would have us believe they have all gone Muslim anti-American. It surprised me to find 83% self identify as Christian. The genocide of the black culture is happening from inside the black community, and outside, from the Dems that want more riot and destruction ... so they can blame whitey. Trump made inroads ... that is unacceptable, Dems want chaos and riot.

316 By emasculating whites, and by putting police in the position of knowing that black people have to be handled with kid gloves, ....

This leads to some people thinking they can get away with anything...

Which leads to confrontations where a big black man will say he does not want to get into the car. Or another big black man will say he will not be arrested for selling loosies...

Which leads to the police having to use force because their only other option is to stand by and watch anarchy

Which leads to needing 4 guys to take down the big man who will not comply, and thinks he has a right to not comply due to his race

Which eventually leads to some deaths.

* I NOT defending the knee on the neck. That was disgusting. I am saying there is more to this. You can solve the knee on the neck by arresting that one officer, but the blm say the problem is bigger. Well, I say the problem is bigger too - I say that what do you expect the police to do when a subject will not comply to being arrested?

We can fully expect the kneel-for-8-silent-minutes ritual to be required in schools this fall in venues such as NYC, Philadelphia, Boston, and elsewhere.

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at June 04, 2020 06:12 PM (KZzsI)



Anger at who though?




Anger at the people who keep them from getting an education? That is the Democrats they continually vote for and themselves. Parts of the black community deride other blacks for acting white if they value things like education.




Anger at the crime that infects and destroys their communities? Again, who but themselves can they be angry with? They are inflicting the politicians who allow and encourage criminal behavior on themselves. It is other blacks who rob them and it is other blacks that kill them.





Anger at the loss of the black family? Welfare did a lot toward that but the rate of unwed births in the black community is over 70%. No outside force did that. and no outside force can fix it.





Anger at the devaluation of black lives? Again, black on black murders are by far what kills the most black people. And that doesn't even touch on the fact that black percentage of the population is about 15%, yet 38% of the abortions in the US each year kill black babies. If the black community does not value the lives of their own children, what hope have they to get members of that community to value adult lives either.




So, I repeat, anger at who?

It is probably racist to exclude individual black people from one's life. Individuals didn't do anything wrong. It's the same problem as the one we are griping about here. Collective guilt/punishment.

That said, it is not racist for a white person to avoid areas where there are a predominance of black teens and young adults gathering for any reason. In fact, it's probably good advice at this point in time. I remember for a while there were literally packs going around beating people up after Obama got elected. Thought we were going to hit the boogaloo then. This current situation is worse.

338 Race is superficial. Do not let your anger at leftists bring you down to their level.

Exactly. As was noted above, Christians are all brothers and sisters saved by Christ. There IS no black or white, just fellow children of God. Your skin color is as significant as your handedness (left, right) or eye color or whether your hair is short or long. How tall you are. Its just a physical diffrence: you got a little cute snub nose, I got a big danish honker. Different, but not better or worse.

CULTURE is different, and doesn't have to be. But we can even work within culture. I was born in New Mexico, lived in Colorado until I was 3 and have been in Oregon ever since. But I can be brothers with southerners, Brits, Irish, New Yorkers, Japanese, it doesn't matter. Its the heart that matters, the soul. Culture can be a barrier or it can be like a menu: I had Greek last night, I'll have Mexican today. They're different and interesting but I dig em both.

He goes past cracking wise. He's not just being hard boiled, he's downright nasty by the time I got to the Long Goodbye. Like the way he insults the client who wants him to keep his neighbor from poisoning his dog. Guy comes to him with a problem, wants to pay him for him and Marlowe is not exactly flush with cash.

I think his code with money is pretty solid. He's not crooked....except perhaps in a moral sense, he's not bent for profit.

But he ekes out existence. He alienates even former friends like Bernie Olds.

Most of the time he is indeed trying to solve a murder, usually of someone he was supposed to be protecting.

I dunno. It's fresh in my head right now and much as I adore Chandler's prose, Marlowe is currently annoying me.

But the black community never, EVER seems to get it. They always turn on white people or Republicans. The folks in charge OF YOUR OWN DAMNED COMMUNITY are the source of your sorrow.

376 Love the Antifa cell being "briefed" on gouging eyes and such.

They've learned something new, and yes, dangerous.

Some of us though... frankly, no small few of the Horde, in general, acquired those skills many years ago, actually. And have applied those skills as needed, over the years.

Here's the difference between them and us:

* Initial Adavantage: Antifa. They go to the rally all keyed up (drugs, minimum Red Bull & escalating from there), eager, anxious and ready to cause mayhem and bloodshed. It is why they are there.

So, they dive in, dialed up to 11, and we're still at "2", in the "Enjoy the Rally" mode.

Being civilized, we're slow to up-dial from "2" to even "7", much less "10".

That right there is our weakness.

Our Advantage: We need to study, plan and practice the Mass Flash Counter Attack, and do so as individuals and small groups, coast to coast.

We already have more SKILLS than they do.

We lack an agreed upon, mutually (even if just "mostly" agreed upon), manual of planned responses and escalations.

And the societal approval within "our side" of the Civilization coin, to utilize those plans and go from "2" to "10", without the usual conservative "steps" of slow-escalation, non-violence and "talking our way out" of a situation.

Nope. We need to counterattack in such a way that we teach lessons of fear, doubt and uncertainty to our attackers.

They say they want to destroy us.

I'll give them the respect due to a dangerous foe. Which includes no retreat, no mercy, no quarter and no quit.

At 62, I'm too old to roll around grappling with some young, fit, hopped up commie. I'll my ways of ending things, and I'm sure most of you will, too.

But I hope the younger, fitter Morons will pick up on the Flash Mass Counter Attack, and develop it as doctrine and practice.

We can set Antifa right down on their ass, in an instant, here.

The real fight is between the globalist elites and their tools and us deplorables.

One group of (mostly) white people in this country wants to eliminate another group of (mostly) white people. The blacks are just one of their weapons. That most blacks don't seem to realize this is a tragedy, but they are serving the Left's interests not their own. When the Dems no longer need them to win elections, they'll be left to fester in the inner cities.

Does this mean whites are finally allowed to explicitly take their own side and advocate for their own interests?

Cuz if they don't start doing it now, they're not going to have the opportunity later. South Africa is their future.

The second half of your statement, I agree with. That's part of the good side of Marlowe.

But the first part: nope. Time and time again, Marlowe misses stuff, doesn't take things seriously and people end up dead. People who'd be alive if they'd gone to someone else or who'd be alive (and possibly in jail) if Marlowe had used his contacts to tip off the cops.

Part of this is on Chandler, who doesn't do plot very well. He wants mood and atmosphere and character. So you get people killed for dramatic effect, when a competent detective would have prevented the drama.

I'm cool with that. But the goalposts keep moving. Black folks want to be more than equal. White people get arrested, pulled over and questioned, thrown in jail, taken to court, etc. But Case, whites don't get treated as bad. Maybe we don't argue and try and fight with cops. We are more likely to comply with police orders. It's not smart to have a chip on your shoulder when dealing with police. I would not have their job. By nature they have to deal with lawbreakers. Cops are human and make mistakes, like we all do. They mess up and cause a death, charge them and put them on trial.
But that does not seem to satisfy these "protesters" who seem to want the cops turned over to them for justice. So I call bullshit to blm, race hustlers, political spin.

408 I don't think Marlowe has a problem with women. At least, no more so than the men he meets. Almost every single person he runs into is a lying creep scumbag. Women, men, everyone. He doesn't sleep around which I guess in modern imbecilic thought means he's somehow secretly homosexual, but he treats some women with tremendous care beyond what they deserve.

He's very careful and gentle with that demented girl in The Big Sleep even when finding her at her absolute worst. He treats the main character in The Little Sister with sarcasm and distrust because she lies to him constantly and works against her best interest trying to manipulate him. But he treats her well anyway.

One thing that bothered me is that whenever things went wrong they blamed their race. Like, for example we would go to a restaurant and service was slow - "Look at how shitty the service is when you're black" or a cop on the DC mall would be walking behind us - "They're keeping an eye on the black folk."

This is not healthy. I honestly saw no change, but I am white so I could compare. For them, they had been ingrained that all bad things were because of racism in America. No - it's because people suck, and the service sucks, and police suck. Life sucks for everybody.

The Bogart and Becall stuff is strictly movies. In the novel version of The Big Sleep, Marlowe and the older Sternwood daughter do NOT get along, at all.

Like I said, he has this push/pull thing where he'll flirt with a girl and then treat her like crap. Or like in The Long Goodbye where he aggressively kisses a married woman without her giving him any signs of interest, but later when she does throw herself at him, he shys off....which was a good thing, for plot reasons.

This is not healthy. I honestly saw no change, but I am white so I could compare. For them, they had been ingrained that all bad things were because of racism in America. No - it's because people suck, and the service sucks, and police suck. Life sucks for everybody.

No no NO ... as with self defense (with or without a gun) ... response to a threat is not "down to their level" ... it is a constitutionally supported, morally/legally/Biblically supported principle.

Racist/commie tyranny of the minority (they are a minority, the Dems lost, but they have infiltrated the institutions) ... must be confronted ... if the legal system broke, we find other means to defend the rights that come from the higher power.

484 Dane-Geld
A.D. 980-1016
It is always a temptation to an armed and agile nation
To call upon a neighbour and to say: --
"We invaded you last night--we are quite prepared to fight,
Unless you pay us cash to go away."

And that is called asking for Dane-geld,
And the people who ask it explain
That you've only to pay 'em the Dane-geld
And then you'll get rid of the Dane!

It is always a temptation for a rich and lazy nation,
To puff and look important and to say: --
"Though we know we should defeat you, we have not the time to meet you.
We will therefore pay you cash to go away."

And that is called paying the Dane-geld;
But we've proved it again and again,
That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld
You never get rid of the Dane.

It is wrong to put temptation in the path of any nation,
For fear they should succumb and go astray;
So when you are requested to pay up or be molested,
You will find it better policy to say: --

"We never pay any-one Dane-geld,
No matter how trifling the cost;
For the end of that game is oppression and shame,
And the nation that pays it is lost!"

One thing that is puzzling me. If Dolezal/Talcum can identify as black, why can't black people identify as white and cash in on some of that filthy white privilege lucre.

On a related note, I need to figure out how to sell something to these idiotic white privilege dopes. It must virtue signal, it must not be too expensive, but enough to finance my lair, and it must have a limited life such that they must repurchase it every so often (because lairs and sexbots ain't cheap).

509 and as an interesting counterpoint to the "I will bow to none but the true God" ... in most cases yes, in true "bowing" of real servitude yes ... But I'm thinking of an OT case ... you OT experts would know ... an Israelite (?) was a servant to one that worshiped Baal (or some other pagan Ramon noodle god) ... and had to kneel with his master ... iirc, God said .. "hey, no problemo".


Just sayin' ... true intent of the heart is the issue ... it is not sin to occasionally defer/ignore some of the satanic influences we must participate in, not every evil influence has to be confronted at once ...choose your battles. Or I may have missed the real meaning of that OT section.

The weird thing - and it was something I discussed with a black co-worker because we came from similar economic backgrounds - is that this is the same m.o. of certain white people.

They get arrested because the cops were out to get them, not because the police were staking out the bar parking lot, watching for drunks. They and their friends are asked to leave the park or mall or whatever because the authorities are assholes, not because they were loud and increasingly vulgar. Someone is ALWAYS eyeballing them or disrespecting them in daily life, but they don't realize that they're staring down anyone who glances they're way.

I could name five people like that from my hometown, and all of them were white.

The slavish attitude was more disturbing than the scientific illiteracy.

550 A female friend of mine said something like this: "It's not just maddening that a black man is now bullying a white women on the street and demanding she prostrate themselves like a servant -- it's that you're not even permitted to say this is wrong, and why it is wrong. You're supposed to remain silent and through your silence confirm that this is okay."

_____________________________________--

You're female friend answered her own question.

"You're supposed to..."

Based on whose authority? A lot of this is pretty simple. How do you address a scenario like this? Well, you basically say "F*ck you." Unless you are one of those people that gets off on being a victim....and we know on which political side of the aisle they reside.

Does that make you more or less popular? Well, it depends on who is keeping score. And, let's face it...the populous is being conditioned to base self worth on popularity. Please LIKE ME. Please SUBSCRIBE...it helps me a lot. Likes, subscriptions etc. There is a whole generation of subpar average jackasses basing their entire breathing day on how many people check mark some inane video or comment offering as validation. It's, essentially, in-distinctive people doing in-distinctive things hoping others evaluate it as special.


Popularity and acceptance....Fuck those if it means compromising your principles and values and common sense. Safety? Yeah, if you're a young woman accosted by a large male ordering you to do something. I can see an issue...which suggests the 2nd Amendment is there for a reason.

But here's the thing. The whole concept of "You're supposed to..." which is another way of saying, "social norms," is a load of movable shit. It's someone else applying their opinion(s) on you forcibly and backing it up through peer pressure. That peer pressure right now is coming through loud and clear with the media and other misguided NPC's. Even the concept of "You're supposed to..." is a capitulation of critical thinking and common sense.

Social norms are part of the fabric of society, and can enhance behavior in a positive fashion as well serve in support of upholding the law. But, they can also be bastardized to the contrary. And, that's when rugged individualism is important.

Mask Theater At Restaurants Is Getting Gross
[Buck Throckmorton]

My wife and I have been trying to support local restaurants throughout the Wuhan Virus panic, first getting takeout one or two nights per week, and ever since our elected officials started “allowing” restaurants to seat guests, we have dined out at least once each weekend. Initially the only “mask theater” I could see was my waiter bringing me food. Having now gone to some restaurants where the food prep is done in view of the patrons, I now realize how gross and unsanitary the whole charade is. In recent weeks we have been at restaurants where we can see food prep, beverage service, etc. Every single restaurant employee is constantly tugging at his mask, adjusting it, pulling it down, and then pulling it back up, etc. And overwhelmingly they grab it right below the nose - the humid, warm spot where they have been exhaling for hours. But they’re wearing gloves, right? Right, the same gloves they’ve been wearing all night as they grab plates and glasses from tables, and the same gloves they’ve been wearing while grabbing at the warm, humid mask all night.

Now I am no expert on infectious diseases (nor are any of the epidemiologists bluffing their way through this hysteria), but I am pretty sure that if we are worried about Wuhan Flu being spread by oral or nasal exhalations, then it is unwise to have the people serving our food constantly sticking their fingers into a moist petri dish of nasal exhaust. How about we ditch the masks and gloves, and just have the employee sanitize his hand every time he visits a table. That has to be more sanitary than getting a thumbprint of nasal exhaust with every plate or beverage refill.

9 Now I am no expert on infectious diseases (nor are any of the epidemiologists bluffing their way through this hysteria), but I am pretty sure that if we are worried about Wuhan Flu being spread by oral or nasal exhalations, then it is unwise to have the people serving our food constantly sticking their fingers into a moist petri dish of nasal exhaust. How about we ditch the masks and gloves, and just have the employee sanitize his hand every time he visits a table. That has to be more sanitary than getting a thumbprint of nasal exhaust with every plate or beverage refill.

But that isn't visible enough. Another problem, especially with the globes is that plastic is just a great carrier. Really good. Gloves make cross-contamination worse unless you're disciplined and change them out often (which they don't). To do it "right" a poor waitress probably has to change her gloves a couple of hundred times a night, at every potential cross-contamination point. It is completely impossible and will never happen, and isn't necessary.

The glove theater is probably *worse* than not having gloves and washing up routinely.

20 I was in a grocery store where all the employees have to wear masks and gloves. I was checking out and the man in front of me paid cash. When it was my turn, I asked the cashier, "Why are you wearing gloves?" All she could say was it was part of their uniform now. I said, "Well, if you're wearing them to protect me, it's not working. You just handled dirty cash and now you're using the same gloves to handle my groceries. You'd be better off not wearing gloves and just cleaning your hands." Her eyes got really big and she stripped them off and got some new ones. Of course, it was too late. And I didn't really care, I was just sick of the theater and had to voice my opinion. I also told her I wasn't picking on her, just the stupid system.

He says she took him up on his offer and asked him to not tell her boss.

31 Its usually better not to watch your food being prepared. Pro Tip: if something raw falls on the floor, and its going to be cooked enough anyway, its safe.

Yep. If they were to do it the correct way, I think they would have to toss the gloves and put on a new pair every single time they touched their mask.

Chefs on TV are always going on about "cross contamination" but they never wash their hands while making food. Nor wear gloves. The concept is valid, but not as bad as they act like it is. You can use the same knife to chop up anything you're cooking, if you cook it all enough to kill the germs.

I started re-watching CSI but I've learned so much about how real criminalists work its almost painful to behold. They don't document before examining anything, they only rarely wear coverings on their feet, they stomp all over the place going into a crime scene, they wear the same gloves the entire process, they put stuff into insecure, or unsealed packaging, its just awful.

Double glove. Change gloves between each object and area. Photo EVERYTHING before touching it, with multiple shots including rulers to document relative size. Not location. THEN maybe consider picking something up to pose with it by the camera.

They should adopt the doctors office procedure. When Doc comes into exam room, Doc immediately squirts his/her hands with hand sanitizer. Does three things. Sanitizes, prevent cross contamination, had gives patient peace of mind.

As someone who trained restaurant workers in sanitation in the 80s and 90s, I'd hate it when a local health district inspector would tell restaurant owners to make their employees wear gloves. I mean there's a reason every freaking restaurant has to have a HANDWASHING SINK in the kitchen people.

48 Sigh gloves in a health care setting have an actual purpose. They prevent transmission of microbes to both the patient and the professional. But the cardinal rule of gloves is that you never leave a treatment room with them on. And after stripping them off and disposing them you wash your hands.

We visited a restaurant a couple of weeks ago--had called ahead. When we arrived they insisted that we wear a mask while we walked to our table--8 feet away. At that point we were "free" they said, to remove it, but we must don it again for any trips to the men's or ladies' rooms.

I objected as it was nonsensical--particularly as there were many patrons (well more than the 25% occupancy officially sanctioned at the time--silly me to notice). The tables were less than 6 feet apart.

But we submitted, only to suffer the scolding from the hostess afterwards. At that point, when she (wrongly) argued that we were required to do this by law (not, we live in Texas), we left. Will never go there again.

If there is an economy left after the Leftists work through their blatant coup, I suspect this place will not survive.

82 I watched an old woman pull a pair of latex gloves out of her purse to open the door into a convenience store. I am guessing that these were the same pair of gloves that she wore everywhere else and then put neck into her purse when she got in her car. I didn't have the heart to tell her that all of the contents of her purse were contaminated by the gloves, including the car keys that she had just put back into her purse with her bare hands.

My microwave went out yesterday. I went to Walmart to get a replacement. Queue out the door and down the parking lot, masks required, 90 degree heat. "Fuck this," I says to myself. Ran down the road to Target. No line. No mask required (though I was the *only* person in the store without one), walked out with my microwave.

Absurdly, though, the clerk had to wipe down the card reader and counter after *every* transaction. Lines don't move fast in those circumstances.

110 Slice of Americana to cheer you up:

My
mom, Pookette, and I cruised the town garage sales this afternoon.
(Pookette called it "garaging.") It was hot, so some kids set up water
bottle and lemonade stands to make a bit of money. One little girl sat
on a cooler and when we bought a bottle of water, hummed to herself
while drying it off with a towel for us. People were polite while
browsing and made use of offered hand sanitizer bottles, but no one wore masks. One lady
insisted that my mom take a candle holder for free because she didn't
have the correct votive cups for it. Another woman made sure not to take
the masking tag sticker off my mom's new purse because it had been
sitting in the sun and she was worried that it would stick permanently. I
came home with two full bags and spent about $40.

Take heart that most Americans are kind, decent people.

121 I have still not braved the outdoor food.
First: Neurotic since food poisoning over a decade ago
Second: I doubt, very seriously, anyone on wait staff or out in public wash their masks (if they are washable).

Third: Paper masks are useless
Fourth: Even in medical use, some dimwits don't change gloves between patients, etc. So one pair of gloves per night? After bathroom use? Harf.
That said, between today's backstabbing of our President by another military guy I trusted, I don't want to know anything more.
What a cluster. I do pray with all my heart that somehow, but God's grace, we can re-elect President Trump and throw out the anti-Americans.

122 At first I was annoyed that restaurants were closed to diners. I made sure to buy take-out from several of my favorites, and they are still steaming along. But . . .

. . . my bank balance looks a lot better now after 2.5 months of eating mostly at home! Going out to eat here is like having an elephant suck your money right out of your wallet with his trunk. It's hard for two people to get away from a moderately priced place here (say, TGIFriday's) for less than $30 including the tip and NOT including anything to drink besides ice water (and I await with horror the day they start to charge for that).

Sure, compared to NYC or LA, $30 is pin money, but I don't live in those places. And I remember when two people could go to Bennigan's, have burgers *and* an appetizer, probably some ice tea, leave a tip, and come away with a dollar or so change from a $20 bill. (Of course that was 1984 when gas was $1 a gallon.)

The sanitary issues Buck mentions just make it worse.

179 81 Asking for reason in this environment is like putting a sign on one's rear saying "Kick me" LOL.

We visited a restaurant a couple of weeks ago--had called ahead. When we arrived they insisted that we wear a mask while we walked to our table--8 feet away. At that point we were "free" they said, to remove it, but we must don it again for any trips to the men's or ladies' rooms.

I objected as it was nonsensical--particularly as there were many patrons (well more than the 25% occupancy officially sanctioned at the time--silly me to notice). The tables were less than 6 feet apart.

But we submitted, only to suffer the scolding from the hostess afterwards. At that point, when she (wrongly) argued that we were required to do this by law (not, we live in Texas), we left. Will never go there again.

If there is an economy left after the Leftists work through their blatant coup, I suspect this place will not survive.

When I graduated from high school, I really did not look forward to college. It seemed like just more of the same school experience with a much longer bus commute. The alternative in 1971 (even if my parents' heads had not exploded) would have been to go to work . . . and that was the LAST thing I wanted then. Especially since I worried I'd wind up in Vietnam.

Damn, I'm really depressed today. This week, three different friends/families have essentially gone bankrupt, I have learned. One is barber shop, out of personal savings, and no place to get money. He has 4 chairs he rents, and those folks are broke, too. Another is a restaurant, actually they have 3 stores and none will open up again. Twenty five years down the drain, including living through 2009-2010.

The third one is a couple that sunk their life savings into a 12-plex apartment building, and is both their full time job and their retirement plan. They spent 6 or 7 years finding good tenants, and creating a really nice little community. It pays off because everyone gets along, tenants want to stay, and their average tenant is over 4 years. They hold off rent increases as best they can, to keep these good tenants. Anything that breaks is fixed immediately, and is kept up.
Four tenants haven't paid rent since March because they didn't get any PPP money. They are all in the restaurant business, either managers or highly paid servers or bartenders that get great tips. Two have told them that their June rent isn't coming, for the same reason.

The result is that their cash reserves are gone. They can't pay their mortgage on the 12-plex, and even though they have a few hundred thousand in equity, banks won't touch them for any kind of loan or refinance.

Oh, and they need to have some money for things like food. Nope.

All of these folks are salt of the earth, donate time to charities, schools, youth, etc. One of the restaurant managers continually hires great people, some of the most efficient and friendly staff you would ever encounter.

Jay Insless yesterday, in his daily press conference that will only accept pre-chosen questions from friendly reporters, and no follow up questions, said he protects the "protesters" have a 1st Amendment right to protest! So after beating citizens over the head with the fake science, suddenly it doesn't matter when rioters want to march shoulder to shoulder. You've seen the Seattle riot video the last few days.

This is from Mr Science, Jay has continued to beat his dead horse "models" instead of the last 90 days of actual, real data. It is truly pathetic.

The level of cocksucker that Jay Insless is can not be measured. He is ruining thousands of lives each day. People I know well.

Jay Insless does not care how many people go bankrupt, commit suicide, divorce, or lose their homes to the bank.

Jay Insless yesterday blamed the situation on President Trump, although I really don't understand why. He continually bitches about Trump, he hates him.

But at least he opened up the Indian casinos. No small businesses or restaurants or salons. but the Indians (Washington State is the only state of 37 states that takes zero cut in taxes) are one of the strongest Democrat constituencies in the state. So of course they get their way.

FUCK YOU TO HELL, JAY INSLEE!

I know others in the military who are the same.

I think part of it is being too invested into the system. You have to sweat blood and tears massive time to make it into the military but a military career can be snuffed out in 2 seconds if you engage in wrongthink. Just ask Flynn.

It's similar with the FBI, one of the hardest law enforcement agencies to get into, imagine investing years to make it into the bureau and then met with the real prospect of throwing it all away so you can do the right thing. Not that it excuses them being traitors and all, but explains a few things.

Yes, exactly! I am just amazed at how plum ignorant so many of these businesses are. The overreaction to COVID is epically stupid, and I guess revelatory of the idiots that run many businesses (large and small).

Two more examples:
Went to Nordstroms last week (before full riot mode had taken over). Really in the mood to shop a bit. Encountered miles of screaming yellow tape, little merchandise and lots of stickers explaining all they were doing to "protect me" from the virus. BAAGHGHGHG

Today, went to return an item at a specialty store (national, but smallish). They have already reduced their hours to 4 hours/day. This is in TX where we've been open since May 1 btw. Informed at the door that I could not come in as I had not made "an appointment". Only 3 shoppers at a time plus the 4 staff--not even the original limit of 10 people in a space. Oh, and anyway, could not take my return but I was "welcome" to take it to FedEx. I stood my ground and insisted that they at least give me a package so I would not have to pay to return the item. Another retailer off my list. Guess I'll be saving even more $$ now.

No wonder retail is dying. They are committing suicide, knowingly.

True enough...but what you cannot have is this getting picked up and ran with by main stream media outlets - ie repeated as truth by the US media in an effort to convince Americans that the executive branch no longer controls the military or much else in any real since without a major coordinated blow back by the DOD and the Joint Chiefs and the President - otherwise it becomes extremely destabilizing.

The idea of university as a place to hide out for 4+ years before growing up always struck me as odd. Before the system, you had a patron, or you sought out knowledge on your own or in apprenticeships.

I may have been ahead of my time, but with faced with elitist, credentialist snobbery at the time, I was more of the opinion that the single biggest influence on the quality of education is the pupil.

292 If Trump wins, we buy another couple of years. I'll take it. I could use the time. I no longer harbor any illusions about things being fixable. I do still think that the inevitable can be delayed for another few years, though.


I think another couple of years will actually be very helpful

If I say why once again, I'll make some of you mad so please understand I'm super-generalizing here. I know what I'm talking about is just a subset and many Boomers are NOT like this. but the subset I'm talking about has a lot of influence, still.

what's happening now is generational change. they were this big huge very doted-upon demographic and they're noticing that they're actually getting old. they're looking around and sensing their mortality. THIS WASN'T SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN TO THEM!

now I know a lot of them are not self absorbed ex-hippies. I definitely totally realize that. but the ones I know and are around here? they're pretty much self-absorbed ex-hippies.

and this is a wealthy area, I think it's fairly indicative of NY/DC/Boston axis as well.

they're not going to go out without taking America with them. or maybe they're just nihilist now because for them, personally, the End is Nigh (not that nigh but these are pretty much drama queens in general).

The US Baby Boomers cannot imagine that this world will keep spinning without them. We just have to hold on and hang in. They're not going to go gently into that good night, but eventually they WILL finally decide to slow down and retire. Or it will be decided for them

297 Yes, exactly! I am just amazed at how plum ignorant so many of these businesses are. The overreaction to COVID is epically stupid, and I guess revelatory of the idiots that run many businesses (large and small).

Two more examples:
Went to Nordstroms last week (before full riot mode had taken over). Really in the mood to shop a bit. Encountered miles of screaming yellow tape, little merchandise and lots of stickers explaining all they were doing to "protect me" from the virus. BAAGHGHGHG

Today, went to return an item at a specialty store (national, but smallish). They have already reduced their hours to 4 hours/day. This is in TX where we've been open since May 1 btw. Informed at the door that I could not come in as I had not made "an appointment". Only 3 shoppers at a time plus the 4 staff--not even the original limit of 10 people in a space. Oh, and anyway, could not take my return but I was "welcome" to take it to FedEx. I stood my ground and insisted that they at least give me a package so I would not have to pay to return the item. Another retailer off my list. Guess I'll be saving even more $$ now.

No wonder retail is dying. They are committing suicide, knowingly.

if you have any Dr pals, get the course of HCQ, I think it's only 5 days but maybe two weeks of it? works really well as a preventative.

We need a few years to mainstream our secessionist parties beginning with Texas and Alaska and start breaking counties off.

Virginia showed what was possible, I always thought you secede by state, but it seems more viable to me for counties to band together and form their own states. Colorado also had a few counties that wanted to secede but they're not permitted to do so because of state law as made by Denver, which makes no sense, especially in an age when the left think they can simply ignore the law if they don't like it.

323 After 1 1/2 weeks's BS about Minneapolis city Dem govt sanctioned choke hold policing and subsequent "knee jerk" indictments we are overlooking the obvious. Good to get these policemen into justice system but I fear difficulty into bringing actual convictions. Change of venue for certain and there WILL be whites on jury. OJ over again.
This's SBD. Not racism. Systemic Black Dependency. The blacks will not embrace their cultural deficiencies and are quick to blame every one else. Look at Chicago crime statistics ... it being 33% black. Dreadful. Check across US black on black crime. They commit 75% of crimes with less than 33% population. What would you have police do? ... treat them like Muslims in Paris? MLK recognized the problem but Da Jesse and Da Revrin Sharpless (yeah and I also forgot the racist loudmouth Calypso Louis) made and will continue to rake in lotsa bucks on pimp poverty.Vote for Dems!!! Another 3 generations of Black regression.
Funny how blacks always have a finger out for any other ethnic group (Whites (which really are composed of what?) Asians, and any other culture that values education and getting ahead). And note we've agreed (usually over a barrel) with Dems trying for three gens to get them up to the medium with legislation. 3 Gen Failure Blacks (Afro-Americans) have a culture that does largely not value education...or complete (not single) parenthood family. Continue to fall behind. This's not about slavery, but about cultural and personal irresponsibility...self destructive culture and we're watching it burn before us. They'll 'jus' wait fer "reparations" and any other good 'ole hand out' from " Massas" on the Dem Plantation. Life good on "De Ole Plantation."

"P.S) Any of you black "victims" 'Jus might git a gig pissing and moaning on CNN". !!

Add: Thank God for the black families that have endeavored to raise themselves and their families above this BS and are joining us in constructive achievement.

BTW Thanks.

Stabbing and Shooting of Brooklyn Police Officers Might Have Been a Terrorist Attck

Of course it was a terrorist attack. It was an antifa attack.

Oh wait, they're suggesting that maybe it has some foreign terrorism connection.

Antifa has a foreign terrorism connection too, of course.

Authorities are looking into whether the Wednesday night stabbing of an NYPD officer in Brooklyn was a terror-inspired attack, law enforcement sources said Thursday.

One officer was stabbed in the neck and two others were shot during the confrontation in the Flatbush neighborhood. All three officers are expected to recover, Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said at an early Thursday press conference. The suspect was shot eight times and is in critical condition at a hospital.

Quick, let's arrest the cops for shooting this Protester who was Protesting them with bullets and a knife.

The guy's from the Balkans. Might be a Muslim. Might not be. I don't know.

Three senior law enforcement sources identified the suspect as Dzenan Camovic, 20, an immigrant from the Balkan region. One senior source said Camovic had recently shared anti-police sentiments on his social media feeds.

Camovic had not been on police radar, the sources said, but is associated with "individuals of concern." Terrorism, however, is just one theory for what happened, they said, and nothing has been ruled in or out.

Oh, an immigrant, wonderful. What a surprise.

America doesn't have enough racial hatreds and tribal warfare conflagarations. Let's invite all the world's killers and terrorists to come here and turn the country into a bloodbath.


The stabbing happened at around 11:45 p.m. Two officers were assigned to an anti-looting post. Surveillance video shows a man "walk up to the officers casually, take out a knife and stab one of the officers in the neck," Shea said.

Now, everytime there's an Islamic attack on US citizens, we're warned about anti-Islamic rhetoric, because that might lead to "backlash." Curiously, we're never cautioned about anti-American rhetoric which leads to Islamic attacks on US citizens, which you'd think would be the primary concern after a Muslim conducts a terrorist attack on US citizens.

Is the media cautioning the "protesters" calling for "pigs" to be slaughtered about the effect their rhetoric might have?

Of course not. A spokesman for a police union is demanding an end to anti-cop incitements but the Enemy of the People media is just laughing at him.

Cautions about rhetoric that might lead to violence are only applied to groups the media hasn't targeted for murder and terrorism.

Speaking Wednesday night at a press conference outside the hospital where the wounded officers were being treated, the head of New York City's police union, Pat Lynch, demanded an end to anti-cop rhetoric.

"Did we doubt because of the rhetoric we're hearing, the anti-police rhetoric that's storming our streets, are we surprised that we got this call? I'm not," he said.

Every time someone merely criticizes or jeers the media, the media goes into overdrive telling us that our violent rhetoric might inspire violence so we must have our free speech rights curtailed.

But when people talk about "roasting" "pigs on the blanket"? The media just giggles and nods. It's okay for the right kind of people to have their lives imperilled.

Just not the members of the Ruling Caste and their client groups.

He also called for an end to the "asinine" system DeBlasio imposed, whereas violent criminals and arsonists are arrested but then immediately released without even the requirement of bail.

The media is laughing at him for that, too.

When the LAPD test came to Boston, I took it. I scored high enough to qualify to go to Los Angeles and take a subsequent test. I scrapped the idea and never went. Not likely I would've been hired, I thought.

They should him/her with their bodies, then momentarily part to let the "point person" unleash a bike lock, molotov cocktail, metal rod or explosive device. They then instantly melt back into the crowd, who surround him/her and usher them to the back, all the while letting out a scream of victimhood about some fabricated police affront.

But when people talk about "roasting" "pigs on the blanket"? The media just giggles and nods. It's okay for the right kind of people to have their lives imperilled.


ace & cobs, if this is too intemperate, please delete. I'm not trying to advocate violence or malign anyone.

But this game of "gotcha" with the eternal double standards of the Gramscian left is over for me. I'm just done with the "It's OK when WE do it" from the media. The attitude is in the wide open now, and it has gotten to the point of intolerable for me.

So here's where I am at, emotionally---if it does not affect me or some person/movement I care about, or a completely innocent bystander, my first, last, and only response to violence being perpetrated on somewhat is going to be "Good." Some protester who calls white men evil gets shot? Good. Some police officer in a blue city who would gladly throw me in jail for defending myself is run down? Good. Some looter gets turned into a stain for any reason? Good.

Fuck 'em all.

Tons of cultural stuff, sports, several Detroit Tigers lived in his solidly middle class neighborhood. Good schools, tons of jobs, peaceful. Then came the riots of 1968 with much of the city on fire. White flight, those who could leave did. The city of his youth is gone, replaced by a husk roughly 1/5th the population, the glory days never to return.

Rizvi worked as an intelligence analyst for both the State and Defense Departments, and was a legal intern at the United States Attorney's Office -Southern District of New York, which handles most of the terrorism cases.

And, of course, while she was in law school, she was working for Al-Haq as a Center for Human Rights and Global Justice Fellow, writing legal briefs and advocating for Palestinian freedoms and human rights.

There is a very broad base of support for Antifa in Portland.

299 Thathalfrican - this is true. My black coworkers don't seem to be like that from what I can tell.

Imp - yeah, I was thinking along similar lines. I have been in all-white gatherings (family get-togethers, etc.) many times, and not once have I heard people using ethnic slurs or, as the kids like to say, "othering" non-whites. That's not to say that "othering" doesn't happen, because any group of humans is going to "other" other groups, but it's always based on ideology (commies, millennials, etc.).

What gets me is, I've learned ethnic slurs from leftists. Usually like this:
Leftist: He's the kind of guy who would bring a watermelon to a black person's housewarming party.
Me: ?? Watermelons are good.
Leftist: Well, black people really like watermelons, so you can't say anything about watermelon to them.
Me: Uh...
Leftist: And fried chicken. They love that. That's the stereotype. So you can't talk about them liking fried chicken.
Me: Sounds like the perfect picnic to me. Are you sure this isn't a stereotype about Southerners?
Leftist: No. It's about black people.
Me: Ohhhh-kay...

If we've successfully raised a generation of kids who don't know watermelons have racial overtures, isn't that a win in the fight against racism? Why not just drop that ridiculous idea instead of telling more people about it, even in the guide of telling them not to promote it?

328 Rumor has it that someone did them one better outside of a riot zone: put Trump stickers over their left-wing stickers (along with other regressive causes).

Antifa smashed up *their own* cars, if rumors are to be believed.


I'd like to believe it, but this allegedly happened in Portland, and I've seen no local reporting or complaining about this.

It's a great tactic, though.

Yeah its not hard to track that kind of stuff down, cameras are everywhere, stuff is all identified. It would take like a half hour to track it to the source and get the money trail. And who knows, maybe they're doing that as we speak, but are so busy trying to keep the city from burning that they don't have time or manpower to focus on that just yet.

I read a funny bit on the HQ Facebook page: the claim is that some guy bought a ton of MAGA bumper stickers and flags and pasted them on top of the "I beleive in Science" and COEXIST" stickers on cars. Antifa bashed the cars to pieces until they realized that it was their own side's rides.

True or not, I wish it was.

I briefly hoped that Tarantino's excessive use of the N-word in his films would de-sting the term and make it so tepid that it lost its power and was made meaningless. Apparently that was a stupid wish, because there are an awful lot of people on both sides of this that want that word to last forever and be horrible until the end of time.

There were a number of perfectly nice black middle-class neighborhoods on the South Side of Chicago.
