Faces of Evil - that was the headline of the Australian Herald Sun when reporting the depraved murder of Aussie Christopher Lane. It is instructive to carry that theme further with a few more faces. (snip)There is an explosion of black mob violence. If you doubt that, read "White Girl Bleed A Lot" by Colin Flaherty. Across the country, degenerate people are violently attacking strangers in "the knockout game" ... just for ´fun´. Flash mobs swarm stores to plunder and pillage. They are eliminating the government middle-man and taking what they want directly.
True, #1. But it´s escalating. I notice in this formerly almost violent-crime-free SC county that reports in the paper are showing a decided increase. Murders have definitely increased. A and I avoid going out after dark.
And now that there´s been a "racial" incident at the local Wild Wings, we´re going to be reluctant to use the shops in that strip center, reluctance heightened because there are only two ways in and out and the traffic lights hold traffic in until you´re lucky if you make it through a light first time.
Please, #2; if you´re unlucky to be in a neighborhood full of Obama´s sons, driving in your car with your family, there´s just ain´t no light red enough for you to sit there waiting for it to turn green, while they approach you. This was my dilemma years ago in a bad part of Dallas. I didn´t know my way around, being from another state; I told my kids, niece, and nephew to get ready for a wild ride through a red light light when I noticed a group coming our way. It was good the light turned green anyway. I didn´t care if I got a ticket or even went to jail; my children and my sister´s children had to be safe.
Any of these crimes are barbarism in and of themselves but strung together like they are in this article they are blood boiling overwhelming. All of us need to send this link to our local newspapers editors and demand they they cover this. The silence is deafening. Its just a small step but surely beats doing nothing.
Until a month ago I would have scoffed at the thought of a Race War in this country. But now I´m not so sure. There is a group of people who are very angry at their plight in life and don´t care who pays or who is really responsible. I saw it first hand when I tried to speak softly and rationally to a woman, her daughter and her daughter´s four kids. It was ugly.

It´s the hate whitey movement that Holder and Obama have encouraged. When a President and an Attorney General state that they will not be prosecuting their people, it sends a message. Well the message has been received and understood by the thugs. I´m glad I live in a stand your ground and concealed carry state.
#3, the problem is landscaping. The sides of the main access road are thick with shrubs and there´s no way to get out or around another car. We avoid that strip from Thanksgiving until after the January sales, anyway, so it´s not too much of a pain.
The "I Have a Dream" celebration was very well attended and its message is worthy of celebration. However, the other messages were the true purpose of the gathering...everything that has befallen the blacks is "whitey´s" fault...end of discussion. The irony, probably not a word used frequently in the inner city, is that the ills that plague the black community will never be acknowledged or addressed by black leaders, black churches, black schools, etc because they would have to take some ownership of these many ills.
Obama is going to speak on Wednesday about the "I Have a Dream" celebration. His speech is entitled "I Had a Nightmare and It Is Coming True".
When the never-had-a-job-in-his-life-race-hustler-SON of civil rights leader, the late Martin Luther King, Jr. says the sainted "trayvon was murdered because of the color of his skin" at the 50th anniversary of the "speech on the Mall", it says all we ever need to know about the "movement". And yet they wonder why gun permits have skyrocketed? Seriously?
Only blacks can clean up their own mess. Whitey doesn´t care that much anymore. America elected a black president. What the he!! else do they want? If America´s blacks think whitey abused them, just wait until Hispanics start taking charge in the cities.
I think that nobody should underestimate the role here of the music industry and Hollywood, where wealthy stars have children without the benefit of marriage (and can AFFORD to) and the horrendous lyrics of so many rappers-----and who does Obama pal around with: J.Z. et al. Fatherless children of the wealthy (via their "fiancé´s" for 10 years) and horrendous lyrics give a respectability and an ability to "define deviancy down."
American blacks have been free of the chains of slavery (150+ years) and Jim Crow (50 years) and still so many cannot compete or succeed on their own without lots of government help and guilty white liberals. They need an excuse to explain why so many still fail and we´re back to "it´s racism."
On a talk show, earlier today, saw four middle-aged black spokesmen discussing some of the pathologies of the black community as though they ought to be addressed by that community. What a shock. But, maybe, this is an early sign that the discussion may be changing, that Rev. Sharpton might lose ground as distinguished black people finally step forward to discuss our country´s race problems honestly and with thoughts about how to actually solve them. One of the spokesmen grappled with how a community could try to encourage young black males to marry the young women they had impregnated.
Having grown up in a high school with zero black students, I had no experience or training in prejudice. I was involved in an unfortunately heated debate at a church regarding an open door policy. In a small southern town, we got a few subtle threats, I assume we were referred to in derogatory terms by many.
But the day after the election in 2008, a walk through the mall was an eye opening experience for me. There was a palpable attitude of "now we´re on top", and this article has convinced me to get a concealed carry permit.
Leaving a Florida Marlins game in the ´90s - while they still shared an Arena with the Heat in downtown Miami, the parking garage attendant actually told me that I should not stop at ANY red lights in the area if I didn´t want to get carjacked or worse... I thanked him and took his advice.
The article´s rogues´ gallery is a tiny tip of a gigantic iceberg. How to fathom the extent of unpublicized race-motivated violent crime? Clearly it´s epidemic, looking endemic. In Obama´s America, I cannot imagine how it will not get worse.
Obama, Holder, Sharpton, Jackson, and other ideological nitwits of that ilk have been allowed the freedom to spread hatred and violence. Until there is at least vocal objections to these scum, the situation will continue to get even more dire.
Accepting lower standards of behavior for black people is a form of racism. Only a racist would say that black people are not capable of joining civilized society on an equal footing. Do blacks need lower standards because they are inferior people? This is the soft bigotry of low expectations. Violent, ignorant, parasitic thug culture is not a built- in defect. It comes from bad values which are created and supported by bad social policy.
Eric Holder called Americans "cowards" for not wanting to "have a conversation" about "race in America". Well, the conversation is being had these days, but those defending black criminality don´t want to hear the other side of the conversation -- that no matter what the excuses, black against white crime is wrong. Black against black crime is wrong.
What is most in need of rectification is the notion that it´s okay for the black community thugocracy to express it´s misguided Sharpton-Jackson-driven rage by killing other people.
The "black leaders" in America are the real criminals. So is the public school system that teaches institutional racism on two fronts: One, white people hate and oppress black people, and two, America sucks.
Obama could stop a lot of this evil in his speech/reading at the ´I Have a Dream´ celebration. Addressing all Americans about the useless violence would be what he should do. Will he? Probably not and if he apeaks again about the Saint Trayvon we will know what direction this will continue. This could all be addressed but the gathering of black speakers will not fix this. Bet your Obamaphone and food stamps on it.
Why isn´t anyone talking about the generations raised on welfare. No one has to work. Money flows in, the more kids, the more the money. Food, housing, and all their needs are met by the taxpayers. So these young thugs never work, they get bored, and they hate whitey. They get all wee wee´d up with their rap music that glorifies killing and bad behavior.

Shootings and attacks have definitely increased in the last few months. There was a justified SYG incident in Melbourne FL just this weekend.
Although I wish there were an answer to the problem, I really don´t care anymore. Let the Progressives have their ´candlelight vigils´ and ´safe nights out´ marches, it´s all BS. Let anyone even suggest what the problem is and they become a racist, honky, interloper who doesn´t understand the Black-Experience´
We are getting what Obama and Holder want, but they underestimate the resolve of people who aren´t going to go along quietly.
I worked this last school year with three and four year old underprivileged (black) children and was shocked to learn the great majority, nearly all of them, could not recognize primary or secondary colors, could not count to ten or recognize numbers, could not say the alphabet or recognize letters. It became shockingly obvious that these children are simply a means to obtain the "career" goal of welfare "employment", and that is their only purpose on the face of this earth...their only purpose in the "family" they are unfortunate enough to join. The heart-breaking victims of welfare payments are these precious, innocent children.
My granddaughters learned early about race when they saw their 65+ grandfather attacked by teen thugs in front of his house. Thugs sped off--on bikes. Their violent rampage ended when they were cornered by an out of town black man. Boys went to jail and I now carry concealed, as does my daughter.
Replete with its shocking, crude, raw, graphic, painful aspects, this article sets a new standard for Must Reads; maybe Absolutely Positively Must Reads. If you possessed any degree of a comfort level before you read it, your level will have lowered appreciably, perhaps even disappeared completely.
Remember when people used to say, “It’s a cruel, dog-eat-dog world out there!”? Well, best you start thinking of that era as the good old days.
Wow! Just wow. I hope everyone reads this. But the sad truth is that white people can´t address this problem. I think the blacks in this country will only listen to another black. Someone in the black community had better step up and demand the bully pulpit and get this message through to other blacks. Again, W has been proved right-´soft bigotry of low expectations´.
FTA: Much of the media are happy to lie in cases like Martin/Zimmerman or Duke Lacrosse, but they are not willing to tell the truth in cases like this.
The good news is, the cat´s out of the bag now. The murder in Duncan, Oklahoma blew the lid off of the cover up, and Negro Savages are being exposed.
The sad thing is, these savages are really a small minority of the Black Community, but the majority gets tarred with the same brush as the savages.
Leftists, beginning with LBJ and his Great Society, have laid waste to the Black Community, the Black Family, with their promises of something for nothing because it´s owed to them. Victimhood is what the Race Hustlers --elected and unelected, have taught, and the chickens are coming home to roost --in all of our backyards.
I used to be a dem. I left the party when I came to realize that it was the dems who destroyed the Black family. They keep them down, uneducated and dependent on them so that these poor people will believe their lies and keep them in power. Alot of the Black leaders go along with this so they can their seat at dem power table. Obama and the dems and the msm who protect them are pure evil.
And to think white lib fools who joined all those blacks in twice voting for Obama just because he was black, spoke well and kept his pants up. Besides electing an inexperienced, anti-American Marxist as chief executive, they handed us this murderous new race war, which is a direct extension of the BO presidency.
Last week, I shared with my friends here about the random, ambush beating of my 17-year old white son by a group of black teens as he rode his bike through a nice, 12-year old housing development. Two other black teens came to his rescue.
It has been 37 days since the assault. I called the case detective on Friday. He was honest and said that our case was a low priority, but he wouldn´t forget about it. They were very familiar with who they believe the primary suspect might be and where he lives. (I was able to provide them photos of the suspect and the good Samaritans who all live with in a few houses of each other.) He stated that they have a lot of problems out of the "possible" suspect´s house.
I asked him if my soon to be Eagle Scout son was going to see the justice he has been taught about. He stated that he hoped so, but was working a homicide at the present. I responded that if he followed that national news he would realize that the next person this group of thugs attack might not be as fortunate (so to speak) as my son, but may end up dead. And I added if he wanted to get ahead of his case load he might want to get the young man off the street before he adds a murder case to his stack. (Continued….)
(Continued….) A close family friend is a veteran detective. I highly respect these men and I was very calm, understanding and firm when I spoke with the case detective.
Last Friday, my wife was fearful at the local convenience store/gas station. A group of black teens approached her demanding money as she fueled the van. They were unrelenting and increasing threatening n demeanor. She stopped and got in the van and drove off.
The mess they left on the mall after Martin Luther King Day is evidence of their lack of responsibility and pride, and shows their arrogance and assumption that someone else should clean up their mess. These are not good citizens. They contribute nothing of value.
#6: The black-white war [loosed by Obama and Holder, the way prepared by Sharpton, Jackson, Rangel, and the rest of the usual suspects] is much like the Islam/West war. One side worries it might be coming. The other side, the negative side, has already been the aggressor in it for some time.
#11: While there is no denying that there are fine, decent, civilized blacks, I submit that a dispassionate look at crime statistics might lead to a reconsideration of your conclusion to at least some degree.
#18: Remember also that many [most?] descendents of immigrants from a lot of European nations have been in the US for a much shorter time.
#19: "Convincing the males" isn´t much of an answer when the girls obviously want to be unmarried mothers [EBT, Obamaphone, etc.]. When it continues for 3 and 4 generations, it is no fluke. It is driven by perverse incentives and self-destructive decisions that bring short-term "rewards."
#20: Granting your proposition, again like Islam, what are they doing about their own evil-doers?
#21: I´m a certified instructor. I suggest the following [beyond the usual CCW issues] -- before taking the first step to owning a firearm, you must decide that you will, not can, but will, use it when necessary. Meanwhile, and even for those with firearms and permits, some cans of wasp and hornet spray at home, and one in the car, are potentially very "handy."
My concern is that the crimes are perpetrated at a low level of seriousness. This is not desperate action; it is something that helps the perps rise above boredom. ´It´s Thursday night, whaddya wanta do?´ ´I don´t know, let´s rob a store.´ ´We did that last Thursday night.´ ´Oh, OK, let´s go kill somebody then.´ We have a horrendously serious problem that neither the LSM nor Holder´s DOJ will address.
I began carrying a pistol in the mid 1980s. I´ve pulled it three times, but never had to pull the trigger. All three time I pulled my weapon it was on 2 or more young black thugs who decided I was a good target.
Fortunately, the appearance of the gun turned them into jack rabbits and they were gone.
Remember the Beltway sniper shootings that took place in 2002. There were about 14 people who were shot from the trunk of a car, in a wide area around DC. Initially they thought the shooter was a White military trained sniper. Instead the shooters turned out to be two black people who were the gunmen.
#53: In using the Radical Muslim vs. Moderate Muslim analogy [I don´t believe Moderate Muslims exist to any degree], the same analogy can be made for those in the Black Community who don´t speak up or take a stand: in many neighborhoods, if an individual speaks out against the violence [or fingers the criminals], they make themselves a target for violence in that community, and in the Race Hustler Community, they make themselves a target for derision.
The ones who can, flee to safer environs. Those who can´t are stuck in a terrible situation --but a terrible situation in large part that they have created for themselves by buying into the Uncle Sugar routine that Leftists have used for generations to retain power.
Rush says Leftists need a permanent underclass to retain power, and that´s why they are so eager to open the borders.
There are probably thousands of cases like the ones described in the article that are never reported. If you were to ask a liberal or progressive politician about that, they would claim that those happenings are all outliers, that are very rare, and should not be publicized, because they tend to disparage the greater black community.
The fact of the matter is only black people can rectify the cultural and social situations that lead up to such violent crime, but as can be seen it takes a lot of guts for so-called black leaders to speak up in a positive vain, as they are afraid of putting themselves in a particular political and social category where they would be referred to as being an "Uncle Tom" throughout much of the black population.
In most cases professional law enforcement cannot protect the public from such violent attacks because almost any prior restraint of suspected violent criminals is deemed by liberal judges to be unconstitutional in this out of control politically correct era. People have to be aware of their surroundings at all times, and try to stay away from people, and places, who are prone to commit such crimes and where such crimes are usually committed. Above all never vote for the liberal Democrats as they are the politicians over the years who are responsible for allowing such a degenerate culture to flourish throughout the black communities that they represent in Congress and elsewhere.
It´s certainly not always about skin color, exclusively; but these are the blanket statements people make when they´re worried about being perceived as racist. Skin color is an undeniable, motivating factor in many of these kinds of atrocities.
My closest friend, a Golden Gloves boxer in the 1970s, was bruised and bloodied, and had his wallet taken, late Saturday night leaving a nightclub where his girlfriend works as a bartender. If the 320 pound bouncer hadn´t been a few steps behind him, he would have been seriously injured. (The perp is in jail, and is hurt worse than my friend.) In this fractured age it´s probably best just to avoid certain areas where the underclass (of all races) has taken over. If I had to work in such an area, I´d be carrying.
...I disagree...it is all about being black...the racepimp filth dismisses black on white hate crime racism as not being racism because the "system" worked...and therein lies the truth...there is NO shame in the BLACK community for doing ANYTHING wrong to anyone... especially white people...it is excused by democrats all the way to the whitehouse...in fact...doing the right thing is doing the "white" thing and condemned by BLACKS on the democrat plantation...obama´s "sons" have noted they can be pot smoking, cocaine snorting, school skipping, loser, liar, affirmative action, quota clown and still ride the racisim wave straight into the whitehouse... the fact that 80% of all black babies - not aborted - are illegitimate is the beginning of the BLACK problem... America is now in her 6th & 7th generation of welfare babies...BLACK infants going home with BLACK girls...EVERY DAY...the newborn goes home with a 15yr old mother, 30yr old grandmother, 45yr old great -grandmother, 60yr old great-great-grandmother & a 75yr old g-g-g-grandmother...ALL on WELFARE...and EVERYONE of them R@PED (per the law) by their BLACK BABYDADDY...and NO ONE is ever charged with rape...why...this is normal & acceptable behavior in the BLACK community...the infant give the girl access to nearly 70 welfare programs on the democrat plantation...and in 15 years these illegitimate BLACK newborns will be pregnant, or murdering gangbangers.
Since they are only 12% of the population we have them way outnumbered if it comes to a shooting war. They´ve got lots of illegal guns but we have over 200 million legal ones. Ammo is in short supply, however.
Socialist LBJ´s welfare triggered FOUR generations of fatherless black children. Obama, Holder, Whoopi, Oprah, Sharpton, Jesse, have all carried the racially abused banner to its Trayvon promoting extreme. As James D Manning exorts, blacks killing blacks, by the THOUSANDS, totally ignored, overlooked, as it builds in mass, now its built up to a powerful force of blacks also killing anybody, black or white. All with the approval of the multi millionaire apologists like Oprah and her favorite guy, race hustler, Barry Soetero. When will the blinded and gagged Diane Sawyer TV news actors ever WAKE UP and tell the truth? Press, media morality is lost. Tune in to pastor James Manning for realistic awakening
In our nearly all white suburb, most of the trouble comes from bored, poorly raised white kids. Two weeks ago a man was standing by his car in his driveway when 2 thugs, one on the handlebars, pulled up to him on a bike. They threatened him with a gun, took his phone and wallet, sped off and were seen a couple of blocks away getting into a car. Cops have a description of the car but still no word that they have caught the perps.
I´ve been in the habit of walking the dog early in the morning and late at night and have always felt safe here. Not so much anymore. Obama´s legacy. Ramona (the Pest)
Those in the Black Grievance Industry will never admit, and the majority of younger people (of all races) were never taught in LIEberal government schools these facts:
From weeks (months?) after the Civil War right up until Johnson´s Great Society, there were thriving business/middle class black neighborhoods in nearly every city in the country, in spite of segregation.
A typical young white lady was more likely to give birth to her first child within 10 months after her marriage than a typical young black woman.
A typical black couple was more likely to remain faithful in their first marriage until death than a typical white couple.
A typical black person was more likely to attend church services regularly than a typical white person, regardless of age, class, gender or any other way of dividing a people.
The Klu Klux Klan was largely made up of northern white carpetbagger DemocRATS who moved to the South for "Reconstruction" and whose actions were often directed towards southern white (poor) people who helped their (poor) black neighbors.
Not mentioned here is the topic of drug use that is the cause of a lot of the violent crime. It takes a lot of money to feed a drug problem. And the best way they can get it is through robbery. I agree that the lack of any values is one of the greatest facts that has created the large number of thugs roaming the streets. And oddly, it didn´t used to be this way. Only since the LBJ days of "war of poverty" was enacted.
And there have been a few prominent blacks that have spoken out about this problem (re. Bill Cosby, Thomas Sowell, Walter William, etc.) but they were promptly attacked for their actions and denounced as "Uncle Toms or simply trying to be white. So, the question remains, who is going to be able to come forward with a workable solution and what will that solution be?
#50: Broken windows. Don´t arrest petty thieves, they commit assault. Don´t arrest those who assault, they become murderers. A long rap sheet indicts the "judicial system" more, in some ways, than it indicts the criminal.
#55: Yes, you take my point. Big, "intractable" problems get that way because they were allowed to get that way. Because "little" problems didn´t warrant action. So if there´s a big crime problem in the black community, was it installed there fully-grown, by space aliens? Or is it there by some other route?
"A principle is a principle and in no case can it be watered down because of our incapacity to live it in practice. We have to strive to achieve it, and the striving should be conscious, deliberate and hard." ~~ Mark Twain

"For many people, an excuse is better than an achievement because an achievement, no matter how great, leaves you having to prove yourself again in the future; but an excuse can last for life." ~~ Eric Hoffer
i guess stupid goes to the bone with a so so called black population of about 13% most are multiracial to declare war on white people in makes target selection tragically easy for white people so if the black community does not control this a lot of innocent black people will be killed in self defense by people not willing to take a chance and the black panthers don´t look scary they just have a shoot me now sign on their back
#62: Indeed, that 65% [close] to 12% difference is formidable.
But there´s another, and very significant, multiplier that advantages the larger group.
I´ve read a bit on this, and found the differential is consistent across many sources. Comparing the median-points of two distribution curves, the larger group has a significant 16-point advantage, 101 to 85. The gap gets even bigger as one goes out on the very important right side of the curve.
But... I can´t seem to remember what was being measured by those numbers. Oh well.
And there are factors where the smaller group outdoes the larger, for example, in fast-twitch muscle fibers.
#21, yes that is the attitude. Our nephew is a cop in Kansas City, MO. At time was in a black and white (no pun intended). Right after 0´s first election, he stopped a black guy for speeding, and the guy´s first words to our nephew were "hey, you can´t give me a ticket, Obama won the election". Nephew laughed, thinking it was a joke. The guy was totally serious. What is their thinking??? I got a ticket with a white pres??? I mean truly, I don´t understand the thinking. Well, at least I didn´t at the time
I am reading too many damn excuses from the prior posts regarding the "plight" of blacks. Slavery ended a long time ago and ever since the mid 50s blacks reaped the benefits of affirmative action that other minorities never have received. Yet they still live in squalor and complain relentlessly
There are Chinese, Koreans, Cubans and Viet Namese, to name a few who arrive here on whatever "vehicle" they can, create a living and generally have their offspring going to college.
White people no longer have anything to do with their miserable situation (odd, how the highest paid celebrities/athletes are always black).
I truly hope there is a monster back lash to the race baiting that BO and Holder have foisted on our country.
And believe me, my black friends, all well educated are horrified by what these two have done to the country because of their assault on whites.
Think about it. Why would any white hire a black person with the knowledge they could become a victim of a crime or the opposite end of a discrimination law suit.
Finally, why do people get fired, shunned or have to resign should they even think of the "n" word, yet every one can say "honky", "whitey", "cracker", "peckerwood" with impunity?
Take another look at the photos if you think there is an impending race war. Some of those goofs probably couldn´t find their way out of a maze made out of cellophane at noon on a cloudless day. War is a highly purposeful activity. Those are the faces of a far more random evil, that of pestilence.
Used to spend time in the backyard looking at stars. Now, due to changes in the demographics in my neighborhood, I´m an armchair amateur astronomer. Everything is on tv or the internet. Won´t answer the door or go outside after dark. I´m beginning to feel like Anne Frank hiding from the Nazis. It´s more than racism. Young people just don´t care.
The black community could take a page out of Rudy Giuliani´s playbook. When he first became mayor of NYC it was a crime ridden cesspool. He turned the city completely around by starting with the "small stuff" like cracking down on the guys who would hang around intersections and want to wash your windshield while expecting you to pay them.
Start cleaning up the small stuff and the big stuff will follow. The black community could start by making sure that kids stay in school and keep their pants on. And parents, single or not, could make sure that their children are at home at night doing something constructive.
None of this is in any way new. The white community has donated trillions of dollars to help the poor live decently. Our Govt has failed them with poor schools and poor Leadership. Not to mention the average taxpayer has up to 50% of their wages confiscated by inept and selfish representatives. Unless the black community decides to change their habits they are doomed. I have witnessed this for the last 65 Years and nothing is changing, but getting worse. the answer is in Education, not the current style of education. Love , education, discipline and a good family, is the only answer.
What would help a lot to stop the blacks from breeding so much is STOP the welfare after the first illigitment kid! and only get welfare for that kid until it turns 2 years old, let these lazy azz slugs know they will have to get.a.job and I betcha they will not be breeding like rabbits
I believe most blacks would love tokill a white person. I believe that out of a hundred blacks there might be one who is worthwhile. I also believe that out of a hundred whites there might be 3 or 4 worthwhile. But that´s just me.
It´s like hunting season for white people. I don´t understand it because I´ve never had a reason to fear black people until now. Did all the Black Grievance People think they would get a better pay check by exploilting this? I have grandchildren who are mixed race; am I running out of options? However, my grandchildren go to school and don´t wear hoodies. They wear button-down shirts and slacks. My grandchildren will never wear hoodies. They will be productive members of society. They have parents that are black and whike and have worked their ass off to make it possible
I´m in the process of moving and found this University of Virginia map useful. It´s zoom-able to the neighborhood level. See the links at the bottom of the map for more info on the map, data and U of Va project, esp. the ´´What am I looking at?´´ link below the legend. http://demographics.coopercenter.org/DotMap/index.html
#81, one of the great tragedies of our time and just one of the million or so reasons why I loathe zippy is that he could have been the equivalent of a black Billy Graham. He, alone in this country, has the bully pulpit and the "creds" to turn the black community around. If he were not evil and narcissistic, he could have made it the central theme of his presidency. But he is evil so he is fanning the flames of racial division for his own selfish and sinister purposes.
#77, It´s never wise to over estimate them, either. Are they dangerous, certainly. But there isn´t much intelligence there, there isn´t much drive and there certainly isn´t much courage. Wars are fought by soldiers and discipline is antipathetic to these scum. These losers don´t have a cause, they have a self aggrandizing excuse.
There are just wars and misguided wars. There are no such categories for pestilence, which is always evil.
Lincoln apparently put little thought into his Emancipation Proclamation by Executive Order. However, I guess he did it on the fly so I´ll give him a break. There was no plan as to what freed slaves would do or where they´d go (other than to join the US military). There should have been an orderly repatriation of all those who wished to go to Liberia. They could have had their own country. The whole thing to me was mishandled. Now we have huge communities of blacks living in enclaves separate from the rest of society. The ones who are able to escape should be congratulated. The ones who don´t are sentenced to be pandered to left and right by Democrats whose only desire is to protect the status quo. This is so screwed up I doubt it will ever be fixed. I should say what I really think but I´d be banned.
Very interesting posts to read through here... I´ve read maybe half or more so far.
Sympathies to those who´ve been assaulted or who have friends or family who are the victims.
Right now, FWIW, I have a stalker who also berates others he encounters at random, but who unfortunately knows my first name and where I live and shows up now and then. We had the police come the first time, but just handled it at Noon Sunday when he showed up again during my lunch with friends.
Btw, he is white, in his 20´s, educated and articulate, and was not a problem until the last two or three months, when apparently his brain went haywire. Within the past month he did a brief jail stint for a minor third degree misdemeanor assault on someone else. I have never done anything to merit his interest or attention, and don´t intend to.
The information some of you posted was worthwhile in this regard. I have been assaulted by young blacks several times, without any lasting harm yet.
Repatriation (back to Africa) for blacks is better than reparations... Lincoln was working on a repatriation plan when killed. He considered the problems to be irreparable.
Also, we could outlaw rap music. You cannot incite a riot, nor yell "Fire!" in a crowded theater, according to our courts. So you should not be able to advocate the commission of crimes by rap music. Let´s outlaw it. You would get a GREAT voter turnout by the GOP´s voters for it... and by requiring photo ID for voters, you´d (we´d) win.
#89, I did not even read yours before posting mine at #90, but saw yours when reviewing what I wrote.
You are mentioning some of the same topics as I just did. Let me address your #89 specifically.
The Emancipation Proclamation was Lincoln´s "goose job" to try to win the War he was in. Lincoln was a lousy administrator and had flubbed most jobs he´d had other than lawyer work... he was an incompetent manager. Most had expected the War to end within 6 months.
Lincoln could not pick generals and was losing battles and political support, of which he had very little to begin with, btw. The January 1863 ploy of "freeing" the slaves was just PR... a president had no authority to do any such thing. Slavery was legal. Slaves were legally owned private property. No dictator could just cancel private contracts arbitrarily.
The goose job was to incite blacks to run off and join the Union side, and to goose up the Union side to emphasize abolition of slavery, which the War was not about for most people, until Lincoln´s proclamation.
Only RE Lee´s big goof at Gettysburg in July 1863, and the alcoholic Grant´s success at beating Johnny Reb at Vicksburg (if memory is correct) and numerous other battles enabled Lincoln to win re-election in 1864.
To help ensure that 1864 win, Lincoln also illegally admitted Nevada to the Union for those few extra Electoral College votes (was it four or so?) in 1864, despite the lack of sufficient population etc there.
Lincoln also lied and cheated to win the GOP nomination in Chicago in 1860... his corrupt henchmen printed counterfeit gallery tickets and packed the gallery at the Wigwam with Abe´s supporters to stampede the convention into giving Abe the nod. It worked.
In the town where I live, which less than 10 years ago rarely had a murder, this year there have been 7 murders since January, at least one a month and three times as many shootings, knifings and almost lethal beatings. 95% were committed blacks, and all my men. Less than a week ago 2 little girls, ages 2 and 5, were shot in the crossfire and are in critical condition. A large percenage of thse shootings take place at at the largest Section 8 apartment complex in the area. I would never go out at night any more. And I am very angry about all of this.
#89 After the civil war a large number of acres were purchased in an African coast. All-slaves who wished to move there were offered homes and money and training to form a small nation. Very few actually wanted to take that control of their lives. Mention of the boat refuges makes a point. In Billoxi Ms. Around a hundred young violent blacks decided to invade and trash the military housing fenced off from their gov. housing. They were brought up sharp facing machine guns and tear gas they tiptoed away. Next they decided to dominate the boat kids there. Major mistake--- the black killer guys lasted about 6 hours in that fight before running home crying if they could still move. The boat kids had learned early how to wipe out death threats to their lives. The police had already called on the military police to help curb the blacks because they were over whelmed. After that encounter no more black problems.
I claim no special insider knowledge of the Democratic Party´s inner workings, but still I am rather certain that discontent with President Obama is bubbling beneath the veneer of public unity behind the Nation´s First Black President. (snip) They´re two of the most powerful African-American politicians in the land. And by most accounts, President Obama and Rep. Charles Rangel hate each other. The most recently revealed salvo in their war of words - Obama´s assertion that Rangel is a "hack," according to the political tome "Double Down" - is just one element of a long-dysfunctional relationship.
Well, well, well. It´s always a glorious day in a socialist paradise when the lefties show their tyrannical hand and try to suppress speech. They want Americans to have accessibility to healthcare, but not to any information about the insurance they are forcing millions to purchase. In order to arm Californians with accurate information about the California Healthcare Exchange, the California Republican Assembly launched a website this past August called CoveringHealthcareCA.com -- clearly setting forth what you have to do, the date by which you have to do it and the consequences if you don´t.
The GOP establishment is loath to admit it, but the government shutdown is turning out to be a brilliant political chess move on the part of Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. The Obamacare disaster, fully predictable by anyone who understands the effect of incentives and the fundamental incompetence of academic theorists and left wing ideologues, has made the go-for-broke attempt to stop it an obvious profile in courage. (snip) The budget and debt limit fights lie ahead. Cruz and Lee have laid out the path for us. The GOP can now say that that because the Democrats have shown
Something is up! The "young invincibles" who were largely responsible for catapulting Barack Obama into the seat of power appear to be spurning ObamaCare and its joke of a website. (Snip) In hopes of driving home his point, rather than sports, split lips, and stitches, the president, well-acquainted with the subject, chose to discuss substance abuse dangers. Let's remember, Barack Obama, Sr. was an alcoholic who lost his legs and later his life in two separate drunk-driving accidents; the president's illegal Uncle Omar manages a liquor store and, before getting a green card, was arrested for drunken driving.
Among the many blessings granted us by ObamaCare (PPAHCA), a new one will be coming soon, starting in January 2014. We will acquire "standing." Legally, the word standing refers to the "ability to initiate a lawsuit." (snip) Those treatments deemed "Not Cost Effective" will become unavailable, even when that care is what you need to stay alive. Thus, insured or uninsured, as a direct result of government action, you are less able or unable to get the care you need in 2014 after ObamaCare implementation. You now have legal standing.
The poor, pathetic Democrats trying to defend Obamacare have adopted the talking point that there is "pent-up demand" for "affordable" (i.e., subsidized by other people) health care insurance. The citrizens of the Garden State have just flipped the bird on this argument. (snip) fifty thousand people signed up online for New Jersey´s gambling sites in the first week. That compares with 741 who signed up for Obamacare during all of October. Yes, the Obamacare website has been plagued with problems, but the disparity between the two programs is still eye-popping
Barry promised a zillion times on camera that Americans under ObamaCare would be able to keep their health care insurance if they liked it, that they would be able to keep the same doctors, and so on. Were these lies? (snip)Next November, Republican political ads from coast to coast should say something like this: "The leaders of the Democratic Party are doing the very best they can. That is the problem our nation faces today: that Democrat leaders are doing the best that they can. We cannot expect them to fix the problems they have created or the other problems
Oops! First it was ´if you like your insurance you can keep your insurance.´ Then it was ´if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.´ Now, after the president´s spokes-prevaricators said that Barack Obama had never met his father´s half-brother Omar Onyango Obama, affectionately referred to by many as Uncle Omar, we come to find out that that´s another lie. Yet in a way it´s understandable that Barack Obama would want to place distance between himself and his colorful Kenyan family, some of whom have lived America illegally for 50 years, still mooch off of welfare, and in Omar
An entry titled "Forget About the Price Tag" has won the HHS video contest for promoting Obamacare. (snip)McDonald received the $2,000 grand prize and a $3,000 prize for having the top song. McDonald, a resident of Chicago, signed up for Cook County´s Medicaid program. She has type 1 diabetes. Did someone tell the state of IL that the $5,000 she won in the contest might make her inelgible for Medicaid? The huge irony is that she won by posting a video urging her fellow youth not to worry about the price tag, when she herself is getting her insurance paid for by
In his first term, Obama managed to get his paws on health care, banking, energy, student loans, the auto business, and more. Now he has his sights set on your 401(k). The left has had its eye on retirement savings for years, but so far takeover attempts have been rebuffed. (snip)Once it is established that mutual funds pose a risk to financial stability, government will likely proceed on its merry way, with thousands of pages of regulations bringing those funds, and the savings they manage, under the thumb of government. It is only a short step from regulation to appropriation,
In Michael Agar´s book entitled Language Shock: Understanding the Culture of Conversation, he asks "[h]ow do you speak and act a lie at the same time?" Agar maintains that there are three characteristics of an act that tell ... whether a lie occurred or not: I. The sentence is false; 2. The person knows it´s false; 3. The person intends to deceive. A lie isn´t just what´s in the discourse; it´s also what´s in the circumstances of the act of speaking, like the knowledge and intentions of the speaker. Furthermore, "the thing that most people would say makes a lie
Organizing for Action (OFA), which lives at the web address barackobama.com because it is an outgrowth of the Obama presidential campaigns, is shamelessly seeking to exploit the deaths of school children at the hands of a maniac in Newtown, CT. I am beyond words. How low can you go?
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by

Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
One definition of a pathological liar is someone who lies where the truth would serve just as well. When President Obama’s uncle, Onyango Obama, was arrested in 2011 for drunk driving, the truth — that Obama had stayed with his uncle years earlier for several weeks as a Harvard law student — would have served the president just fine. No potential Obama voter would have held it against him that an uncle he had stayed with two decades earlier was picked up for DUI. Yet the White House went with a lie, claiming that Obama had never met his uncle. Now that
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
Although the jobless rate in November fell to its lowest level since he took office, President Obama called on Republican lawmakers Saturday to spend tens of billions on unemployment benefits that are set to expire this month. “It shouldn’t be a partisan issue,” Mr. Obama said in his weekly address. But he said the “economic lifeline” is in jeopardy. “All because Republicans in this Congress — which is on track to be the most unproductive in history — have so far refused to extend it” Mr. Obama said. If Congress doesn’t act before lawmakers leave on their holiday break, about
Many people could die as extreme weather becomes common. There will be more freak winds like the October storm, which killed four people. Heatwaves will be lethal and the sea level will rise, leaving coastal towns at risk of being swamped by storm surges. Sir Brian Heap, president of the European Academies Science Advisory Council, said he felt “obliged” to issue the warning after a new study by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It comes on the back of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, which has killed more than 5,000 people. Sir Brian said: “Given the tragic events this
