‘Ol Remus, on the power of the middle class:

“..So, what would happen if the middle class revolted? Consider the nearly unfixable damage a few Edward Snowden-like IT managers could do. Or how freight trains loaded with, say, high energy chemicals could be misrouted. Or the well-equipped home workshops of engineers who design military drones. In some cases not doing something can be just as damaging. Think of the power grid, then imagine some overlooked maintenance with unexpectedly huge effects, or how a small misstep in charging a natural gas pipeline could detonate the whole thing. Count the number of bridges over the Mississippi, there aren’t that many. Imagine what heavily loaded barges could do to the supports if mishandled. Consider something as simple as mislabeled fuel at a transportation center. Or an airport. All these things are under the direct control of the middle class…”

Ralph Peters:

Obama’s Reign of Error: How America Lost Its Way and Is Losing the War Against Jihad (Part 2)

“….My teachers taught Sean O’Casey, John Millington Synge, and William Butler Yeats. Faulkner, too, and D.H. Lawrence, and Joseph Conrad; and both the Greek and Elizabethan tragedians, as well as Joyce and Chekhov. And now the English teachers themselves, what do they read? They read Harry Potter, they read “young adult literature.” Find me a public school teacher who goes home and reads Faulkner these days. Thanks to the tyranny of the teachers’ unions and the dogmas of the Left, our first line of defense in the 21st [century] – education – has fallen apart. And, by the way, do you know who or where the first universal education for a nation’s youth was established? Who ensured that all citizens must be taught to read and write? It was Frederick the Great…’
Is it any wonder that leftards want to give 16 year-olds the vote?

Build a Cage and Let Them Have At It

The JV team, as Emperor Barry called them, are looking to win the Super Bowl. The paedophile goat-rapists were formerly known as ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria), then they changed their name to ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant). Why did they do that, and why would the Soetero Regime immediately start calling them that?

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?

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2729287/ISIS-beheads-journalist-James-Wright-Foley-warning-US.html

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,
