White nationalists in America are flocking to DNA tests. They don’t always like the results.

I thought this was a hoot.

It just goes to show you that when folks get a scientific fact they don’t like, they can quibble until they get one they do like.

My question for these … … “interesting individuals” is would you take a transfusion from a black human being to save your life? (You could ask the same question in reverse. My answer is “hell yes” and be eternally grateful to the donor.)

Perhaps, these finding could change some hearts and minds?

POLITICAL: The minimum wage is discrimination against minority youths

Minimum Wage Dishonesty
By Walter E. Williams
January 12, 2016

*** begin quote ***

During South Africa’s apartheid era, the secretary of its avowedly racist Building Workers’ Union, Gert Beetge, said, “There is no job reservation left in the building industry, and in the circumstances, I support the rate for the job (minimum wage) as the second-best way of protecting our white artisans.” The South African Economic and Wage Commission of 1925 reported that “while definite exclusion of the Natives from the more remunerative fields of employment by law has not been urged upon us, the same result would follow a certain use of the powers of the Wage Board under the Wage Act of 1925, or of other wage-fixing legislation. The method would be to fix a minimum rate for an occupation or craft so high that no Native would be likely to be employed.”

Walter Williams is among my favorite author / economists.

He often drives a metaphorical dagger into the hearts of the phony liberals, politicians, and bureaucrats!

In this specific case, the “minimum wage”.

The liberal politicians use it to demonstrate how much they care about the poor. All they care about is getting their votes.

I can’t think of a more destructive diktat then this.

I learned this lesson when the rising Federal minimum wage “forced” AT&T to automate all their elevators. While some of the all women elevator force were able to be placed in other higher skilled jobs, many were not and were fired. I know one personally who never worked again because the minimum wage cost more than she could produce. 

Anecdotal? Sure. But that doesn’t make it real.

Look at the black youth unemployment rate and tell me that isn’t real either.

Argh!

RANT: BHO44 — Religious schools is segregation

Obama: ‘If Catholics Have Their Schools and Buildings and Protestants Have Theirs … That Encourages Division’
June 19, 2013 – 12:36 PM
By Terence P. Jeffrey

*** begin quote ***

(CNSNews.com) – Likening religious schools to segregation–a racist system that forced blacks to attend different schools and use different facilities than whites in the American South–President Barack Obama told a town hall meeting for youth in Belfast, Northern Ireland on Monday that there should not be Catholic and Protestant schools because such schools cause division.

“Because issues like segregated schools and housing, lack of jobs and opportunity–symbols of history that are a source of pride for some and pain for others–these are not tangential to peace; they’re essential to it,” said Obama. “If towns remain divided–if Catholics have their schools and buildings, and Protestants have theirs–if we can’t see ourselves in one another, if fear or resentment are allowed to harden, that encourages division. It discourages cooperation.

Are you kidding me?

Does the “Constitutional Professor” remember the First Amendment?

I would make the argument that Gooferment Skrules teach the “Secular Progressive” worship of Mother Earth and Father State. And, they pay for them by extracting taxes from me by force.

Communists, Socialists, and Fascists always want to brainwash the young.

Argh!

INSPIRATIONAL: Race, an obsolete paradigm and an erroneous meme?

A Co-worker sent this to me. 

My thoughts went like this:

*** begin quote ***

Would you consider that “race”, whatever that is, is an obsolete paradigm and an erroneous meme?

Changing paradigms is easy; memes are painful.

What did MLK say? “Content of their character” …

and Gandhi “be the change you want to see in the world” …

and the old Catholic hymn “let their be peace on earth and let it begin with me”.

Sigh, I’m just a fat old white guy injineer …

and I “Dona Nobis Pacem”.

RANT: Boston Red Sox owners in a racial mess

Boston Red Sox owners have a big problem — racism
Liverpool’s American owner now has some big decisions to make

The Guardian reports that the banking group Standard Chartered, which pays £20m a year for having its name on the Liverpool kit made strong representations to the club after the game expressing its extreme displeasure at the way its image was being dragged through the mud.

The banking group, which has a high profile in Africa and the Middle East then took the unprecedented step of issuing a public statement effectively condemning the club it sponsors:  “We were very disappointed by Saturday’s incident and have discussed our concerns with the club,” John W Henry, and chairman, Tom Werner, are scheduled to visit Liverpool next week  for commercial and sponsorship reasons but it is now unthinkable that they will decline to issue a statement about the racism displayed by one of their own high profile employees and the tenacious support that was shown to that employee by a club they own.

Many Irish people are asking whether things would ever been allowed to go so far if a Red Sox player had behaved the same way.

I don’t know why, serendipity maybe, but I watched the very exciting game —  Manchester United versus Liverpool — and saw the refused handshake. At the time, I thought “Wow, their athletes are as big an <an anal opening surrounded by a sphincter> as ‘ours’!”

I didn’t realize the US connection.

I’m sure the corporate sponsor will clear this up in minutes. I can here it now: “Why don’t you pick up your check on your way out. And, don’t let the door hit you in the <synonym for donkey> as you leave.”

It was a good game. Drama equivalent to our standard fare.

Of course, the controversy intruded into a good product.

I also watched the Australian version of their baseball World Series. It to was good; not controversy.
