” A white teacher said he routinely overhears vulgar and racist comments from students at an all-black high school. I blame the black youths’ negative mindset on blacks in the civil rights exploitation business and white liberals with their stomach-turning bigotry of lowered expectations.
We see snooty, arrogant, superior intellectual-sounding white liberal pundits and hosts all over TV touting their absurd narrative that blacks have a right to be angry in racist America and must be coddled. These liberal celebs followed certain steps and behaviors to achieve success. And yet, they claim that expecting blacks to follow the same road map to success is racist. Blacks should be repulsed by this liberal narrative, which implies that we are inferior. I want to scream, “How dare you lower the bar for me? I be as smart as any white person!” Sorry, I couldn’t resist.
I have witnessed the same racist mindset in a white liberal couple who are longtime friends. They have had financial highs and lows in their efforts to run various businesses. They work hard and will take any job to pay their bills. Applying for government welfare is not on their radar. They employed horrible black employees, always making excuses for them, giving them a pass because they were black. I was amazed that they could not see the racism at the root of their low expectations, disguised as compassion.
At every turn, liberals send the message that blacks are lesser Americans. Liberals say it is hateful for conservatives/Republicans to expect blacks to speak English correctly, show an ID to vote, refrain from murdering each other, and stop dropping out of school. White liberals say asking blacks to refrain from having babies out of wedlock is culturally insensitive and imposes morality on them. Libs ignore the truth that fatherless households contribute to gang membership, black-on-black violence, and poverty. Do you see the pattern? White liberals insinuate that urban blacks are poor uncouth savages. Therefore, a 6’4” 290-pound black thug should be given a pass for robbing a convenience store, assaulting the clerk, and attacking a police officer while on his way to Grandma’s house.”
” Chris Lollie, of St. Paul, Minnesota was tased infront of his children as he went to pick them up from school on January 31. He claims he was racially profiled as all he was doing was sitting down waiting to pick up his children when he was approached by the police, seemingly for no reason.
He was charged with trespassing, disorderly conduct and obstruction of the legal process but all charges were dismissed on July 31.
Lollie filmed the entire encounter, but his phone was taken by the officers as evidence. After charges were dropped his phone was returned and he promptly uploaded the video of him being attacked to YouTube. “

” Support for Scottish independence has risen eight points in a month, according to a new poll.
The No camp are now six points ahead of the Yes campaign, down from 14 points in mid-August and 22 points early last month, excluding undecided voters.
The latest YouGov poll found that, excluding ”don’t knows”, 53% of those questioned planned to vote No, while 47% would back Yes.
This compares to 57% for No and 43% for Yes in mid August and 61% for No and 39% for Yes at the beginning of last month.
Blair Jenkins, Chief Executive of Yes Scotland, said: ”This breakthrough poll shows that Yes has the big momentum – it’s an all-time high for Yes support in a YouGov survey so far, and an eight-point swing from No to Yes in just three weeks. We only need another three-point swing to achieve a Yes for Scotland on September 18.
” While the No campaign press the panic button and blame each other for a series of blunders, Yes will get on with the job of persuading more of our fellow citizens – both No and undecided voters – that we need a Yes vote to put Scotland’s future in Scotland’s hands.” ”
” Arthur M. Lewis may be elderly, but criminals are learning the North Palm Beach man is no easy mark.
The 89-year-old decorated World War II veteran foiled an armed robbery attempt Saturday afternoon at his Lake Park jewelry business that left a 44-year-old suspect with six gunshot wounds, but no loot.
Lewis was working behind the counter at The Jewelry Exchange at 900 N. Federal Highway when he was approached by a gun-wielding man around 3 p.m., according to an arrest report from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. Lewis said he immediately grabbed the suspect’s revolver and pulled out a .38-caliber handgun from his own pocket.
The two men wrestled for several minutes and fired shots at each other. Despite battling someone half his age, Lewis got the best of it. A man identified by the sheriff’s office as Lennard Patrick Jervis, a Miramar resident, was shot six times by Lewis, including four times in the chest. Lewis’ left arm was grazed by a bullet, but he was otherwise unscathed.”
” Kentuckians really, really love their medical supplies and equipment, while Iowans like their small appliances – at least according to a new infographic compiled by online shopping mecca eBay.
According to Mashable, eBay analyzed 2013-2014 shopping habits to find the top 500 brands purchased by residents of each state. The online retailer then condensed the data to general categories like “furniture,” “robotic vacuums,” and “batteries” among others.”
” Incredible pictures taken from the air show the astonishing number of people stranded in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert after rare heavy rains prevented them entering the site of the annual Burning Man festival.
By now it should resemble something from a post-apocalyptic Mad Max movie, a teeming mini city growing out of the sand.”
” But standing water turned the playa 90 miles north of Reno into a quagmire and police barred ticket holders entry to the free-spirited week-long arts event, telling them not to return until Tuesday afternoon.
Hundreds of vehicles massed outside the gates waiting for the weather to clear up, with some posting messages on Twitter about their predicament using the hashtag #strandedman.
Festival-goer Jordan Kalev arrived at the event by plane and took pictures of the site as he flew over showing the sheer volume of traffic massed at the entrance and the soggy state of the ground.
Around 70,000 people were left anxiously waiting for the event to start, with many driving back to Reno rather than queue in the desert. “
Ignore the time stamp on the video . It is incorrect . This rescue by bystanders took place on August 11th on I-10 outside of Biloxi , Mississippi . Trucker David Fredericksen , whose dashcam provided the video , leapt into action and rescued the driver and her one-year old grandchild moments before the car exploded .
” Almost 8,000 senior enlisted personnel must go before a continuation board later this year to determine whether they can continue to serve or must retire.
The board — the first since early 2013 — will convene Oct. 27, according to a Navy document released Aug. 14.
At risk are between 7,500 and 8,000 retirement-eligible active and reserve E-7s, E-8s and E-9s with at least at least three years’ time in rate.
But there is a big upside to the process: Clearing out senior enlisted who have engaged in misconduct or whose performance has slipped noticeably makes way for hot running sailors to move up.
The board has no exceptions; even the most senior sailors — up to and including Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Mike Stevens — will have their records reviewed.”
These military purges serve multiple purposes for the Obama regime: They free up moneys to fund more “social programs” read: vote buying , they rid the service of the most experienced war fighters thus continuing Obama’s policy of weakening our national security and they allow the tyrant to install personnel more loyal to himself all under the guise of being more responsible with our taxpayer dollars .
” Fifteen people were shot in a rash of violence in New York City. The violence left two people dead and 13 others injured within a span of just 8 hours.
The NYPD reported the first shooting late Saturday. It happened at an East Harlem Park.
In that incident, 3 people were shot, with one of the victims being seriously injured, at Jefferson Park on 113th Street and First Avenue; Shortly before 3 a.m.
On Sunday, 2 people were shot dead in Hamilton Heights when a driver got out of his car and opened fire.”
” Seven people have been killed and at least 29 others wounded in shootings across the city since Friday evening, police said.”
We’re sure those 42 wounded and 9 killed in Chicago and New York are grateful for the safe environment created by those city’s draconian gun regulations .
” Most American men will tell you they are either a boob guy or a butt guy. But in Brazil, it’s apparently all about the butt.
According to Huffington Post, the “Miss Bumbum” competition kicks off today in Sao Paulo with 27 lovely ladies representing Brazil’s 26 states and one federal district hoping to win the country’s annual competition for having the best ass.
Brazilians have until November to vote online and narrow the field down to 15 for the finals, where the winner will take home roughly $22,000 in endorsement deals and “instant celebrity.”
For the first time in the competition’s history, twins will be duking it out for the honor of best caboose, as Rafaella and Graziella Fornazieri have both entered the contest.
Last year’s champion, Dai Macedo , told a French newspaper that to win the title of “Miss Bumbum,” it takes a lot of devotion.
” No nightclubs. No sweets,” Macedo said. “I went to the gym Saturdays and Sundays.”
Macedo won the title of “Miss Bumbum 2013″ after sporting a moneymaker that measured in at 42 inches, proving once again that size does matter.”
The finale from 2012 …
And the candidates from 2013 …
” Lauren Bacall, the sultry actress with the heavy-lidded eyes and husky voice who captured Humphrey Bogart’s heart both on and off the movie screen, died on Tuesday at the age of 89.
“With deep sorrow, yet with great gratitude for her amazing life, we confirm the passing of Lauren Bacall,” the estate of the Bogart family said on a verified Twitter account.
Bacall was married to Bogart from 1945 until his death in 1957. They had two children.”
” The public knew her as Lauren, the screen name hung on her by director Howard Hawks, while friends used her given name, Betty. Bogart simply called her “Baby” in a love story that ended prematurely with his cancer death in 1957.
She was born Betty Joan Perske on Sept. 16, 1924, in New York City, the only child of immigrant parents. After her parents’ divorce, she adopted a variation of her mother’s maiden name, Bacal.
Bacall had set out to be a Broadway star. She played small roles on stage and modeled for Harper’s Bazaar magazine, which published a photograph of her that was spotted by Hawks’ wife.
Bacall was only 19 when Hawks cast her in her first movie, 1944’s “To Have and Have Not,” as an American girl who shows up at a seedy hotel in Martinique. She won a place in Hollywood history with her sexy query to Bogart, “You know how to whistle, don’t you? You just put your lips together – and blow.” “
” For those who don’t know, Burning Man is a week-long festival in the middle of the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. The event attracts a wide range of creative people from all over the world.
This year, [Jake] is going to bring his homemade evaporative ‘swamp cooler’ to help battle the heat. His design uses a medium-sized shipping container with two large holes cut out of it and two 200mm PC cooling fans embedded into the plastic. The fans blow air from the outside into the bin. Humidifier filters sourced from a local dump are inserted into the middle of the container. The filters acts as an absorbent material to hold melt-water being pumped in from another cooler chest above.”
” In mid-June, the U.S. government relaxed its previously strict rules on high-definition satellite imaging, allowing mapping services like Google Maps to scale up to a higher resolution. DigitalGlobe led the charge in changing the U.S. ruling in part because of its upcoming Worldview-3 satellite, which will provide the first public high-resolution photos of our planet.
Google and Microsoft will be likely beneficiaries of this advanced space imaging since both are DigitalGlobe customers, and the detail this satellite provides is pretty stunning. The company says Worldview-3 will capture sub-50cm resolution, allowing clear views of “manholes and mailboxes,” according to the BBC.
The satellite will launch at 2:30pm ET on August 13, which you can watch live, because who doesn’t love a good rocket show. “
” The Department of Justice does not have receipts for more than half of the unaccompanied alien children apprehended at the southwest border by Border Patrol since the start of fiscal year 2013, government records show.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection data show more than 85,000 total apprehensions of unaccompanied alien children during fiscal year 2013 and fiscal year 2014 through June. Information from the same time period provided toNational Review Online by the DOJ’s Executive Office for Immigration Review shows 41,592 total receipts marked as juvenile in immigration courts. Kathryn Mattingly, spokesperson for EOIR, tells NRO the receipts refer to new Notices to Appear (NTA) — the document the Department of Homeland Security uses to charge an illegal immigrant with being removable from the United States.”
” Ayn Rand wrote an influential book, Atlas Shrugged, in the ’50s that seems to resurface in popularity with each new wave of government intrusion on the lives of our overregulated, overtaxed citizens. The book describes a world that was on a slow but steady path toward ever more central planning by meddling bureaucrats interfering with the entrepreneurial class who relied on one another for their production of output. As the pages of the book are turned, this “road to serfdom” (a phrase I borrow from Friedrich Hayek) reaches a peak with the last of a small subset of productive entrepreneurs dropping out of their respective professions and sealing themselves off in a secret location created by John Galt. Their isolation from government interference in Galt’s secret hideaway was designed to allow this subset of creative, hard-working individuals to pursue their dreams and live in a rational way, trading value for value with one another. The vision of Galt in his hidden refuge is consistent with the Ayn Rand objectivist philosophy that she advocated her entire life as an immigrant to America from the Soviet Union.
Rand never wrote a sequel to Atlas Shrugged, but I wonder where she would pick up after the first novel ends. We’re left with John Galt and his band of entrepreneurial cohorts waiting to eventually reenter the failed utopia created by central planners. Taking a peek out of his libertarian lair, I wonder what Galt would think of America today. Some of the current dismal economic statistics seem consistent with the world Ayn Rand created in her fictional novel. The latest Census Bureau figures show a larger percentage of people receive some form of means-tested public assistance than work full-time. Would this be a rock-bottom entry point where Galt and his band of entrepreneurial cohorts can once again return to the world and begin rebuilding America based on principles of limited government and free markets? Not quite yet. One last worn-out shoe has yet to drop: the U.S. stock market.
Unlike the beaten-down real economy, activity on Wall Street continues to flourish. Large banks and their institutional clients have benefited from the artificial stimulation promulgated by the Federal Reserve. By keeping interest rates near zero percent for the last five years, middle-income families receive next to nothing off their life savings, while institutional clients can borrow money at bargain rates from large banks. In a classic example of crony capitalism, banks have rewarded their institutional clients with cheap loans, enabling them to use borrowed money and speculate on stocks, driving valuations to levels not seen since before the bank bailout in 2008. The governor of the Bank of England recently commented that “banks operated in a privileged heads-I-win-tails-you-lose bubble.“[i] I believe Galt would be disgusted at this unintended consequence of government intervention that is driving a wedge between the elite on Wall Street and the average American struggling to make ends meet on a beleaguered Main Street. If Galt were a stock investor, would he trade in some of his gold for fiat currency, cozying up to this collection of institutions buying large-cap stocks on margin? At these nosebleed valuation levels, Galt would probably “flip the bird” at Mr. Market before sliding back into his hidden sanctuary until greener pastures emerged in the equity investment arena. Galt strikes me as the kind of independent investor that would keep his libertarian powder dry until the current statist experiment ran its complete course, waiting patiently to scoop up the right kind of stocks at a great price. Assuming the skeleton infrastructure of an organized stock exchange still remained on the day of Galt’s return to the investment arena, what stocks would he select from the rubble left on the corner of Broad and Wall? A review of the character’s profile might give us a few clues. Let’s go through a few stock categories I believe John Galt would avoid. Buying large company stocks would probably be out of the question for Galt. In the recent past, these stocks were the economic football the large institutions speculated on with borrowed money. As already mentioned, savers deposited hard-earned money in their bank accounts and received close to a zero percent interest rate, while money was loaned out in a speculative frenzy to the bank’s institutional buddies. Adding insult to injury, not only do retirees earn about the same interest rate as preppers get off of canned goods stored in their bomb shelters, their principal is being debased from continuous quantitative easing by the Federal Reserve. The stench coming off this large-cap football used by highly leveraged institutions in stock speculation would be too much for Galt to muster a bid order. “

” The top 10 countries that are fans of the U.S., and the top 10 countries that are critics, includes some surprises: France made #10 on the fan list, and Germany made #10 on the critics, based on a new Pew Research Center survey.
What’s not surprising here is that Israel is our #2 fan, and the U.S. gets high unfavorable ratings from Palestinians.
There is little evidence of “profound anti-Americanism” except in a handful of countries, Pew’s research found.”
To us, the most startling revelation in the poll is France making the top ten in ranking America favorably . Surprises never cease . Read the whole thing which reveals strong support for America in Asia , Africa and Latin America and much less positive ratings in Europe and the mideast .
Funny how the two regions most likely to have a negative view of America are also the regions that thrive on antisemitism and Jew-hating .
Another commonality that springs to mind , this one on the positive side of the poll is that the ten countries that think the most highly of the US have been on the receiving end of very little American attention , diplomatic or otherwise , over the past half decade or so … coincidence ?
