This may not be a fair comparison, but I’m going to make it anyway.

Bicycles,race and attitudes and why they matter

Driving back to work yesterday I had two encounters with people on bicycles,particularly young,black people on bicycles.

This isn’t an unusual thing,lots of black kids ride where I live,but the younger generations ride with attitude.Particularly the attitude that they and only they own the road and the rules just don’t apply to them,this attitude occurs elsewhere as well,but more on that later.

The first encounter was as I was turning right at a traffic light.I came to a stop,checked traffic and started my turn,out of nowhere here comes a 20 something black boy coming around the corner,against traffic,cutting in so close he pushed the passenger side mirror out of whack.The second came a couple blocks later on a side street.Another 20 something black boy,this time riding with traffic,occasionally when he was on the same side of the street.He was riding zig-zag,lolly gagging around,talking on his cellphone and blocking traffic.He got kind of indignant when I came up behind him and layed on my horn,but finally got out of the way and allowed myself and two other cars to pass.One never sees an older generation black person doing these things,it’s always the younger group,the entitled group doing stupid stuff.

As a retired state policeman once explained to me,police and sheriff’s deputies look for things that stand out.There simply aren’t enough of them to watch everybody all the time,so they focus on things that get their attention.As he colorfully put it”arseholes always rise to the top,and when they do we knock them back down”.

People on bikes ignoring the traffic rules,groups of teenagers Jay walking in mass across busy streets,teenagers driving down the road with the seat leaned back so far they can’t see over the wheel.A car load of blacks,or for that matter whites,in the wrong neighborhood at 2:00 am in the morning,or any car going down the road with no plates,lights etc.

So it comes as no surprise then that recently in Ferguson,Missouri when minutes after committing the strong arm robbery of a convenience store,that two young black men jay walking down the middle of a city street would get the attention of a passing police cruiser. The officer according to witnesses,stopped and asked the two men to simply get out of the middle of the street.But how dare he?How dare he demand of the urban afro-elite that they obey the same rules as everyone else?The ignorant,entitled attitude and stupid mentality common in so many black youth took over and the rest is now history.

With that said,I don’t deny that racism does exist and I don’t deny that many black folks have been wrongly accused and mistreated over the years in this country.However,how much anger towards blacks from whites,hispanics and asians today is the result of racism versus the stupid,lazy,entitlement attitude that many blacks not only have,but frequently practice?That segment of the black community is despised by whites,asians and hispanics almost universally,but it never occurs to that segment that it is they who are the cause,it simply cannot be the fault of the afro-urban elite,so therefore it must be racism.

Where did this attitude come from?Why do many older blacks not exhibit the same sh–ty behavior?Thomas Sowell has some answers-

Well how do you like Islam now Journos?

ISIS,that wacky bunch of jihadis is at it again.Today they lopped the head off an American journalist and threatened to do the same to another.Normally I could care less,these are journalists mind you,but it does beg the question-

How many journalists must lose their heads before their liberal puppet masters wake up and tell the truth about what Islam is?

My guess is all of them,with a slim chance the last one will wake up just before terminal razor burn.

Captain Theodore Van Kirk

Captain Theodore Van Kirk,last remaining crew member of the Enola Gay,dies at age 93

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/30/us/30vankirk.html?_r=1

Mr. Van Kirk joined his fellow crewmen in unwavering defense of the atomic raids.

“We were fighting an enemy that had a reputation for never surrendering, never accepting defeat,” he said. “It’s really hard to talk about morality and war in the same sentence.”

He continued: “Where was the morality in the bombing of Coventry, or the bombing of Dresden, or the Bataan Death March, or the Rape of Nanking, or the bombing of Pearl Harbor? I believe that when you’re in a war, a nation must have the courage to do what it must to win the war with a minimum loss of lives.”

From a time when men were men and leaders actually led.

R.I.P. Cap Van Kirk,

Obama throws Israel under the bus…..again

What’s this the 4th time?I’ve lost count

Obama blocks Israeli missile shipment-

http://online.wsj.com/articles/u-s-sway-over-israel-on-gaza-at-a-low-1407979365

From the article-

 “The White House and State Department have sought to regain greater control over U.S.-Israeli policy. They decided to require White House and State Department approval for even routine munitions requests by Israel, officials say.

Instead of being handled as a military-to-military matter, each case is now subject to review—slowing the approval process and signaling to Israel that military assistance once taken for granted is now under closer scrutiny.”

A senior U.S. official said the U.S. and Israel clashed mainly because the U.S. wanted a cease-fire before Mr. Netanyahu was ready to accept one. “Now we both want one,” one of the officials said.

Yes,and we know why the WH wanted a cease-fire don’t we?The best comment under that article reads-

One only has to look at the sheer amount of appearances that Netanyahu has made on the Sunday shows and FOX to realize that he long ago dispensed with  dealing with President Obama and has chosen to take his plea directly to the American people for support.”

Spot on I would say and further proof that Netanyahu is a skilled leader with a firm grasp of the situation he and his people face
