Legacies

17 comments

How important has it come to life that it is necessary to leave a legacy to ourselves? Personally, I am doing my best to make it through life with my integrity intact. Do I feel the necessity to be remembered for something? Absolutely not. I affect people’s lives but I do it without harm. I am just amazed how important it is for others and the rabid nature they use to make it happen, especially in politics.

As Presidents go, I remember Carter’s legacy being a drunk brother, gas rationing, killing SF in an inept rescue attempt of hostages in Iran, and giving away the Panama Canal. Other than the drunk brother, the rest of what Carter did harmed the nation.
Clinton I remember as never allowing an accessible vagina go to waste. That and that his wife is Hillary. That caused considerable harm to the nation. I really tried not paying attention to that circus during that time because I was ashamed at what they did to my country.
And then we get Obama. And his sleeveless, America hating, food banning wife. Where do we start with legacy? How about the endless vacations/golf trips/shopping trips/greet and meets where the two took separate planes to end up at the same locations? The fiasco with illegals in the U.S. And getting their relatives in here also? No, I’m not talking about Obama’s illegal kin living in the White House. How about Obamacare? Or Fast and Furious? Creating a greater racial divide then before the 60′s? The current “legacy” of his tenure is now the Iran nuclear bomb guarantee treaty….I mean executive something or the other. I swear that he was nicknamed by some Italian because every time he pushes an horrible initiative upon Americans and/or the world, he makes sure that any decent or movement to resend his order is met by veto. Veto Obama…..the Irish, Italian Muslim. There is so-o-o-o much more than can contribute to his lunacy…er…legacy. Regardless, EVERY PIECE OF IT DOES TREMENDOUS HARM to this country and the world.

These are legacies I can live with since it shows and proves the ineptness of the liberal Democrat. No, I will not talk about the liberal Republicans at this time but they exist also. I guess the next legacy we will be able to talk about is Hillary. That is, if freedom of speech still exists, or the country for that matter.

One of the unspoken truths about race in this country is that the average IQ for Blacks is about 15 points lower than for Whites. (The standard Gaussian curve does not fit perfectly, of course, but it is a good enough fit for about 95% of both groups.)

Current studies suggest somewhere between 50% and 70% heritability for IQ — meaning that about 50-70% of one’s IQ depends on the IQ of your parents. There is, naturally, some environmental factors — such as whether your parents read to you as a child, and your home life in general.

There are structural problem for Blacks in our society today. Minimum Wage laws price many Black youths out of the labor market, so they can never reach that bottom rung of the economic ladder and start their climb. The democrat-run inner-city schools are a joke. Our criminal justice system is not race-blind. (The jury should never know the name, sex, or race of the accused. Justice really should be blind.) These government-imposed problems prevent Black men from attaining the ability to support a family. But the God-given biological drive to reproduce is still there — so they do. But the government will take away benefits from a woman who marries the father of her children. So the government makes the “spread your seed far and wide” strategy better for many Blacks (from a propagation of one’s genes perspective) than a “keep your eggs in one nest and guard it vigilantly” strategy. This, of course, perpetuates some of the problems of the Black community.

So what if polygamy were legal?

If polygamy were legal, many Black women might choose to marry a successful (intelligent) Black man who already has a wife or two. Than man could be having children with younger wives well into his 60′s and 70′s. Not only would this propagate his better genes, but those children would grow up in a better household than they would as the children of less intelligent men in single-parent households.

Furthermore, the less-intelligent men would not be reproducing with those women. Win-win.

Over time, we might see that IQ gap close considerably.

When traditionalists would argue that marriage should only be between one man and one woman and that opening marriage up to two people of the same sex would lead to polyandry, the response was that we were being ridiculous. Well, now that the SCOTUS has ruled that every state must recognize such unions, there are now groups that are now calling for – yep, you guessed it – POLYAMORY. Here is an article from a leftist publication that has already called for it.

The long term solution for the individual states will be for states to simply get out of the marriage business. Period! I disagree with Mike Huckabee’s view that we should continue to fight for traditional marriage. That horse left the barn with the election of Bill Clinton in 1992 and is a losing battle at this point.

Yes, this is a true story

I wrote about this issue over a year and a half ago on this board (click here to read it) when I predicted that the SCOTUS would indeed rule that same sex unions are legal in all 50 states. (Not bragging. That wasn’t difficult for anyone looking at the tea leaves)

Indeed, Obama has kept his promise to “fundamentally transform the United States.” We now live in a nation where a man can be called a “woman” (nay, they DEMAND you do so); where a person can change their race from white to black; where entire groups of people will marry each other; and it will essentially be illegal to be white. No wonder young whites want to change their race.

Many statements have been called “racist” — that term is used by the left to condemn anything they don’t like, and to shut down conversation.  Progs do not like real conversation, because they cannot argue with facts and logic.  Thus, they resort to emotional accusations such as “racism” or “sexism”.

So what is “racism”?

Resorting to our trusty Merriam-Webster Dictionary, we get these definitions:

1: a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race

2: racial prejudice or discrimination

So let us take the joke from Judy Moses, wife of Israeli Minister of the Interior, Silvan Shalom: “Do u know what Obama Coffee is? Black and weak.”

Is that racist? Obviously not. It shows no indication that 0bama is inferior because of his race (definition #1), nor does it show any racial prejudice or discrimination (definition #2). Her joke simply mentions that 0bama is Black. Thus, those who think the joke is racist must think that it is his race which causes 0bama to be weak, and therefore they are the racists, not she.

It is no different than saying, “Do u know what Biden Chocolate is? White and tasteless.”

It simple mentions his skin color, but does not imply that he is tasteless because he is White.

According to the race-baiters, any negative mention of race is racist. For instance, noting that the average Black IQ is about 15 points (about 1σ) below that of Whites is considered racist. But it does not fit either definition. If the difference were more like 2σ or 3σ, then it could be considered to be a “primary determinant”. But it is not. It is simply a fact.

Stating facts is not racist. Racism comes when those facts are used against individuals. For instance, a resume from someone with a typically Black name will receive fewer call-backs than a similar resume from someone with a typically Anglo-Saxon name. That is taking the properties of a population (averages, medians, standard deviations), and making assumptions about individuals. The is prejudice — pre-judging an individual based on the properties of the population to which he belongs.

That is what racism really is. Treating Blacks as if they need quotas and special dispensations to have a chance at a good life, is racist. Treating everyone as individuals, even if that means that a higher percentage of Blacks fail than Whites, is not.

To have an real, honest conversation about race and racism, we have to be able to speak the truth, and we need to stop calling racists the people who speak that truth.

Only when we get to that point can we look for underlying causes. WHY does the Black population have an average IQ one standard deviation below that of Whites? WHY is there more crime in the Black community? Then we can truly move to Dr. King’s great society, in which a man is judged by the content of his character.

So there was another “massacre” in the news. A 21 year old Caucasian male sat in a church while Bible study was going on. For some unknown reason (other than stating he HAD to kill because these people rape white women and need to be exterminated) the man started shooting, reloading 5 separate times. Read it. It was a Negro church and the people he shot were Negro. Strictly racist, right? This alone condemns him but it isn’t enough. His Facebook pages show him wearing an apartheid flag patch on his jacket. Now we really know he’s racist. Oops. There is a picture showing him with a Confederate battle flag. The gun he used was given him by his Dad as a present.

Being racist is a prejudice towards a race of people. There are only three races on this earth: Caucazoid, Negroid and Mongoloid. Period. I get tired of talking to ignorant people about the War of Northern Aggression so I won’t. Slavery has been around since almost the beginning of time. It has no color. So Nazis think Jews are sub-human and slaughter them. Jews aren’t a race. Muslims slaughter Christians. Christians aren’t a race. African tribes slaughter each other. Are they racists? Lots of questions. Are guns racist? Only when they kill another race, right? Flags are racist though. This doesn’t seem like a simple answer for pointing blame but it sure is convienient for all matters and people that are ignorant.

Where should the cause and blame really lay? How about people in general. Those that say “white is bad” or “darky is bad”. Music is corruptive. Video game are corruptive. Taking God out of our lives is destructive. Being “politically correct” is destructive. Allowing the sewers to weave into the fabric of our lives is corrosive. These things make the sane go berserk. Mold the weak into loons. Just everything gets turned upside down. Nurturing, responsibility, discipline and punishment are what is needed collectively. The people in the public eye are the worst role models we can have. How we go about getting kids off street corners, away from the TV and computer, phone and other media and have them focus on plans, ambitions and working toward a goal is something I can’t tell you. It does need to happen. I don’t think flags or guns or race make people want to join ISIS. Why would they MAKE this guy shoot up a church? They didn’t. Ignorance and an “anything goes” society has done that.

Until the 1970′s, more men than women attended college.  Now, not only do more women than men attend college, but more women than men earn Bachelor’s (Bachelorette’s?)  degrees and Master’s (Mistress’s?) degrees.

Back in those halcyon days, educated men worked with less educated women.  Those women might be particularly intelligent, or they might not.  Personality and beauty reigned over intellect.  A young, beautiful, sweet girl could marry an educated man for whom she worked as a secretary, or whom she met in the grocery store or at church.

Now, college-educated men meet their wives either in college or at work.  As such, we are selection sorting by intellect.  Educated men marry educated women, and uneducated men marry uneducated women.  This stratifies society by broadening the IQ curve — more intelligent couples have more intelligent children, and less intelligent people have less intelligent children.

Such selection sorting by intellect necessarily increases the income inequality, as the intellectual inequality increases.

Exacerbating this trend is the fact that less-educated women (who tend, naturally, to be less intelligent) have more children, earlier in life, than do those with more education.  In fact, according to that study, college-educated women average fewer than two children over their lifetimes.  They are not even at replacement rate.  Meanwhile, women with only a high-school education are having an average of 2.7 children over their lifetimes.

Further exaggerating this stratification is that less-educated have those children at younger ages. Let’s figure that women with only a high school education have an average of 2.7 children, at an average age of 25, and that college-educated women have 1.8 children at an average age of 33.  By the age of 100, a less-educated woman will have 53 great-great-grandchildren (from 16 great-great-grand-parents).  The educated woman, however, will have about six great-grandchildren (from eight great-grandparents).

The less-educated (generally less intelligent) people increase, while the more-educated (generally more intelligent) people decrease.

So by more widespread education of women, we have greater stratification because of the selection sorting by education level (a proxy for intellect), and we have a demographic shift toward fewer intelligent offspring.

Much has happened as of late. The TSA has been in the limelight with this 95% failure rate in screening passengers. If that isn’t unnerving in and of itself, it has failed to detect 73 airport workers who are listed on the terrorist watch list. The excuse: not having complete access to the lists. There always seems to be a good excuse but excuses just don’t give me a cozy feeling when ineptness could cause me to die. And more money seems to be the cure for the left but when did money ever cure ineptness? We have seen daily with this government that it doesn’t work and that is the MANAGEMENT SIDE OF THE BUSINESS! What about the lost badges? Hundreds of them missing and there are no answers why. Feel safe yet? You think the government has your back? Think again.

Let me get to the real concern for this post. The Patriot Act came up for review and extension. People have been very concerned about the NSA and mega data from phone calls, etc., etc.,etc. And this is the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution that they site. Re:

Amendment IV

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

The people are suppose to have protections against the government and their snooping. Reason being, too much information in the wrong hands is dangerous to individuals. But sometimes people must willingly give the government EXTENSIVE information; about every piece of information we need to keep our public accounts secure from invading forces, i.e. Identity thieves. For some individuals the government has every bit of that information PLUS interviews, very private things asked through polygraph, etc. this information, in the wrong hands, can not only ruin someone’s complete life, but put them at risk for blackmail as well as endanger the individual, family members, personal and professional relations. This becomes the ultimate worst case scenario that no one wants to endure.

China hacked the OPM. This isn’t about Hillary explicitly but the administration in general. This information should never had an outside access. No sensitive information should have outside access. Here is a site talking about classified and secure information. So what is wrong with this picture? Here is the code. It appears that the government agencies are riddled with “oops” and “incompetents”. What we need to do is go back to paper cause computers sure aren’t cutting it where the government is concerned.
