Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Sometimes I wonder if, when my grandkids are my age, this country will still have standing in the international community…or maybe just be standing at all. (Wolve)

I would not bet on it.  The forces of liberalism and illegal immigration are too great.

Internally, the more intelligent people are having fewer children and having them later, while the less intelligent have more children sooner.  The intelligent people are barely (or not even) making replacement rate, while the intellectual proletariat are doubling each generation or two.  (And then they wonder why income inequality has increased.)

Externally, we have dropped all pretense at border control, and are importing the intellectual dross of the poorer nations to our south.  Why are those nations poorer?  Do they have fewer natural resources?  No.  They have less civilization.  Their legal systems are a joke, and their educational systems are even worse.  So they come here, and vote for the same political system that destroyed their own country.

Civilizations have been destroyed by such migrations of the uncivilized since the dawn of civilization.  The Aryans destroyed the Aegeans and Semites in Greece and Mesopotamia thousands of years ago, the Huns and Goths overran the civilizations the Aryans built, and the Mongols and Turks overran the civilizations Huns and Goths created.

So what hope is there that our nation will stand?  Very little.

The progs undermine this country at every turn.  They welcome the invaders.  They fight against enforcing our borders.  They fight to reduce the overall intelligence of the population.  They fight for the enemies of our civilization.

In the oral arguments of King v. Burwell, Justice Ginsburg brought up the question of “standing”:

A plaintiff “has to have a concrete stake in the question,” Ginsburg said, interjecting almost as soon as Carvin began his argument. She noted that two of the plaintiffs had served in the military, one would soon turn 65 and be eligible for Medicare, and the fourth could qualify for a hardship exemption and not be required to pay the individual-mandate penalty.

Carvin countered that the lower courts had not raised a standing issue.

“But the Court has an obligation to look into on its own,” Ginsburg said. Carvin asserted that at least one of the plaintiffs did have standing before Ginsburg allowed him to move on to the merits of the case. (National Journal)

So what I want to know is, why doesn’t every taxpayer in the country have standing in cases like this?

Sorry. I wanted to get this out earlier but the transcript wasn’t available. I watched it live and was very excited through the whole speech. Unfortunately it wasn’t the leader of MY country making me feel good, but that of ANOTHER country. This speech was needed to be said and heard. READ THE WHOLE THING SO THAT YOU UNDERSTAND ITS IMPORTANCE.

There were many Congress critters absent, although you could not tell because this was a PACKED HOUSE! Even Feinstein was there after she said she wouldn’t be. Pelosi was there, annoyingly and continuously turning around to talk to others. Who was very conspicuously absent was Plugs Biden. Well, his schedule says he is doing this. Not sure what it is but it is consistent with this administration: when things are in crisis mode, there is always time to f#^koff and be political. Nature of the beast.

When you read this transcript, you will see things like “the enemy of my enemy is my enemy” and “Israel can stand up for itself”. He is giving Obama a chance to do the right thing but he is stating that the U.S. will not keep Israel from doing what is necessary for its protection. Bravo BiBi, bravo.

As I await the speech to AIPAC from Netanyahu, I hear from members of Congress who will snub him when he gives his speech to Congress tomorrow. Most of the Obama administration “heads” will be conveniently out of town. They’ve had enough notice to redo their schedules to be present , which means this is really just a snub. Here is one article on the issue.

Now when Amb. Samantha Power spoke, she said many things. She got some applause but then raised her eyebrows each time, like she had just hit a home run. I, personally, thought it a disgusting display, as my interpretation was that of “politics being played”. To strengthen that belief, she stated that Obama reiterated that Iran WILL NOT GET A NUCLEAR WEAPON. PERIOD. What does “will not get” mean? Won’t be able to buy one? Won’t be able to make one? Won’t be able to steal one? All ambiguous and subjective from my point of view. Above all, we have another “period” statement. That tells me a lie is being perpetrated and something underhanded is moving forward; based, of course, on past behavior from this administration.

When Netanyahu spoke, he only spoke as to why he would speak to Congress tomorrow. He believes that there is a strong relationship with the U.S. and Obama. He only wants to let our governing body know how Much Israel is in danger. But there are ads from Jstreet, supposedly objective and conservative Jews, who say this is a bad idea for both Israel and the U.S. I did some research into Jstreet. This article should sum it up pretty well. All in all, there seems to be great opposition towards this visit and speech from Netanyahu. I won’t ask why because I already know. Unfortunately, Israel, on this subject, also has our best interests in hand because our administration is willing to weaken the world and put everyone in jeopardy by allowing a nuclear terrorist state. People who have openly declared destruction of their perceived enemies, of which we are one.

And then you have John Kerry, chief lackey for all affairs foreign, trying to assemble some type of coherent speak on the issue. When he stated that “Israel is safer” because of the interim agreement with Iran. After all these Obama years of indoctrination, this should be easily believed by the masses, no? Trying to remember what that interim agreement was. Something like we will lift sanctions and Iran will stop buying and using centrifuges while allowing inspectors to see every aspect of their nuclear program. How is that working out?

In Part One, I wrote of how “privilege” is the result of actions.  If a recognizable group tends to make Good Choices (work hard, don’t break the law, etc.), then members of that group achieve some “privilege” accordingly.  When Blacks are committing crimes at ten times the rate Whites are, then Blacks are looked on with greater suspicion.  This is only natural.

(This is why I advocate a truly blind justice system.  The jury should not see the defendant, and he should always be “John Doe” to the jury.  Even if the jurors do not see the defendant, they will be more favorably disposed to Mike Jankowski than to LaShawn White.)

But now, I want to turn to education.  Specifically, the education of women.

Individually, this is a fabulous thing.  I certainly want my daughters to be educated, and to get professional degrees.  I would love for all of my daughters to get their doctoral degrees before they marry.  I want them to marry other professionals, and to raise their children the same way.

But what does that do in the aggregate?

Back in the days when few women went to college, college-educated men were more likely to marry women who were not college educated.  Now, we have a fairly clear split.  College-educated men marry college-educated women, and non-college-educated men marry non-college-educated women.

Well, it does tend to be the more intelligent people who are college-educated.  So more-intelligent men are marrying more-intelligent women, and less-intelligent men are marrying less-intelligent women.

Furthermore, more-educated women tend to have fewer children, and to have them later in life.

So let’s look at some made-up, but hopefully reasonable numbers.  (“Fake, but accurate”?)  In a century, an educated couple who has two children at an average age of 33, will have three generations of offspring: 2^3=8.  Eight intelligent great-grandchildren.  But of course, those great-grandchildren also have other, presumably similarly-intelligent great-grandparents, and we are just making replacements, not increasing the population of intelligent people.

Meanwhile, the less-intelligent couple will have four children at an average age of 25.  Four generations in a century: 4^4=256 less-intelligent great-great-grandchildren.  They, too, will have other great-great-grandparents, of course, but they have doubled the number of less-intelligent people every generation.  So for every pair of less-intelligent great-great-grandparents, there are thirty-two (32) less intelligent great-great-grandchildren.

With intelligence and education’s being prime indicators of income and wealth, we now see a significant driver of increasing income inequality.

Now, we’ve all heard the latest prog clap-trap: White Privilege clap-trap.

Does being White gives one a leg up on everyone else?  No.  Asians make up less than 20% of the students in Fairfax County Public Schools, but are more than 50% of the students admitted to Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology.  Why is that?  Asian Privilege, perhaps?  Blacks and Hispanics are admitted to TJ at far lower percentages than they occupy in the FCPS student body. Why is that?

Asian have higher graduation rates than Whites, who have higher graduation rates than Hispanics, who have higher graduation rates than Whites.

Asian earn more than Whites, just as Whites earn more than Hispanics, who earn more than Blacks.

Obviously, if Whites had all the power, and exercised that power to discriminate against people of other races, Asians would be down there with Hispanics and Blacks.  But if a cop sees a car full of Asian teenagers driving down the road at 10:05 PM, he probably figures the library just closed.  He does not think that if that car full of Blacks or Hispanics.  Call that “Asian Privilege”.

So the question is, WHY does that cop think as he does?

The fact is, Asians commit fewer crimes than Whites, who commit fewer crimes than Hispanics, who commit fewer crimes than Blacks do. Asian teenagers are more likely to be at the library studying.  So this “Asian Privilege” and “White Privilege” is the result of the actions of generations of Asians and Whites.

Which brings us to the Rat Race.  The progs like to cry that it is not “fair” that Blacks and Hispanics are more likely to start off poor, and so it is not “fair” compete with Whites and Asian.  But how did those Whites and Asians start off in such a better positions?

The children of Whites and Asians are better off because of the actions of their parents and grandparents and great-grandparents reaching back millennia.  The Rat Race is not an individual event, but a relay.  White and Asian parents tend to pass the baton to their children a bit further down the track than do Hispanic and Black parents.  White and Asian parents also teach their children how to run the race faster.

Is is “unfair” for Whites and Asians to teach their children how to read before Kindergarten, when fewer Blacks and Hispanics do?

Is it “unfair” for Whites and Asians to foster a respect for education in their children, when fewer Blacks and Hispanics do?

Is it “unfair” for Whites and Asians to discourage their children from having children out of wedlock?

Of course not.  Blacks and Hispanics could do the same.  If they choose not to do these things, doing them is not “unfair”.

It appears by this article that Shawn Williams believes that King has started some type whisper campaign about his past, that Williams feels will affect his chances to run respectfully and win nomination for LCBOS chairman. I don’t see how his past should affect his present circumstances. It sure didn’t affect Delgaudio, did it? And who cares if he keeps getting stopped for drunk driving or that he may be beating his wife, relatives and neighbors. He is endorsed by Scott York so he must be a decent and stand-up kinda guy, right?

There are many reasons I would not vote for Williams and none have to do with his past that we are just finding out about. He is weak and timid and, as far as I’m concerned, has no spine. It also doesn’t help matters to be approved by York. This is best for the county and now let the games begin with Randall and King.
