Texas mom fights off pit bull

Horror.

Camp was dog sitting a friend’s pit bull who always seemed friendly, until he met Mackenzi.

“The dog came up and he was just curious,” recalled Camp. “When he smelled her, that’s when you saw it flip because I think he smelled my dog on her.”

The dog attacked the little girl so Camp was forced to fight.

She shoved her fist into the dog’s mouth and even bit its ear off all while telling her daughter to turn over so she didn’t choke on blood.

“I only know to fight so how else do you get somebody to stop,” Camp explained. “I mean I would do the same thing with a human being.”

Two stories here.

1) Texas mammas are fiercer than pit bulls when defending their young.

2) Yes, it is the damned breed. Pit bulls should not be bred.

Is It Racist To Date Only Your Race? Yes.

And it’s all your fault, honky. Apparently, no race other than white people tends to favor their own. Racial inequality exists because we dominate prestigious occupations, and control access to schools, etc. We are thus, responsible for some Chinese woman who has a preference for Chinese men.

Nevertheless, I do feel comfortable judging them guilty of being clueless. There are good reasons to question the moral appropriateness of strong same-race preferences and their close cousin, in-group favoritism. In The American Non-Dilemma, Nancy DiTomaso argues that persistent racial inequality in the United States is not solely or even primarily a reflection of racism and discrimination. Rather, it reflects the fact that whites tend to help other whites without ever discriminating against or behaving cruelly toward blacks and other nonwhites.

As long as whites tend to dominate prestigious occupations, and as long as they control access to valuable social resources like access to good schools, the fact that whites, like all people, will do more to help family, friends, and acquaintances than strangers will tend to entrench racial inequality, provided that white people choose to associate primarily with other whites. DiTomaso observes that while Americans place very high value on the idea of equal opportunity, virtually all of us seek “unequal opportunity” in our own lives by leveraging our intimate relationships to achieve our goals, including our professional goals. Yet most of us don’t see the help of family and friends as an unfair leg up. This kind of “opportunity hoarding” is accepted as par for the course.

We could make an effort to eliminate in-group favoritism, but such an effort would inevitably fail, as in-group favoritism is a powerful human impulse. A more sensible course of action would be to do our part to expand the boundaries of the in-group. And by doing our part, I mean doing more than piling on when some minor celebrity or politician is accused of racism, or holding “rednecks” in casual contempt for their (supposedly) backward views.

[...]

As trivial as the sharing of meals might sound, it is not clear to me that it is any less important than supporting racial equality as a purely abstract matter. This is particularly true for those of us—most of us—who claim to support racial equality while engaging in the kind of in-group favoritism that entrenches racial inequality.

Suburban Racist Says Term “Inner City” Is Racist

Mediaite:

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO), the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, will welcome Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) next week for a meeting in which his caucus will discuss the issue of poverty with the House Budget Committee chairman. Appearing on MSNBC on Wednesday, Cleaver previewed an issue he will raise with Ryan about how his past statements reflect a seeming lack of racial consciousness. [...]

Cleaver added that Ryan’s admission that he was unaware of the objections to Murray’s theories suggests “ignorance” on Ryan’s part. “If you know the least, you shouldn’t speak the loudest,” the Missouri representative added.

Cleaver went on to say that the term “inner city” is suggestive of race. “Chairman Ryan, I think, knows that,” he added. “If not, I think we’re going to have to create an atmosphere where he can learn things.”

You just can’t make this shit up.

Fred On Racism: “So What?”

Fred Reed has devised an effective method of dealing with the never-ending false cries of ‘Racism’. I think we should adopt it.

fred-navheader

I am puzzled as to why racism is thought to be a terrible thing, rather than entirely natural and often reasonable, and why people allow themselves to be brow-beaten about it. Maybe we should stop. Domestic tranquility would follow in torrents.

As nearly as I can tell, a racist is one who approves of rigorous education, good English, civilized manners, minimal criminality, and responsible parenthood, among other things. I am, then, a racist. I see no reason to grovel about it.

I decided long ago that if, while I was doing a radio interview, a caller-in told me, “You a racist!” I would hesitate as if puzzled, and say “…So what?” This would add immeasurably to the planetary supply of stunned silence. The expectation is that anyone so charged will fall on his knees and beg for mercy. It would be a lesser offense to be caught sexually molesting autistic three-year-old girls while attending a Nazi torch-rally.

Herewith another and yet worse confession:: I do not see, or care, why it is thought my duty to like, or dislike, groups because of their race, creed, color, sex, sexual aberration, or national origin. Nor do I think it their duty to like me. I especially do not understand why the federal government should decide with whom I ought to associate.”

Welcome to higher education in America

This professor has strong feelings about conservatives.

“…racist, misogynist, money-grubbing people have so much power over the rest of us. And want things to go back—not to 1955, but to 1855,” Terry said to his Introduction to Creative Writing class Monday morning.

“There are a lot of people out there that do not want black people to vote, do not want Latinos to vote. Do not want old people to vote, or young people to vote. Because generally, people like you are liberal.”

“It’s absolutely possible that the Republicans will take over the Senate as well as the House. And we will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens. I mean, colleges will start closing up if they, if these people have their way.”

“They don’t think money should go to giving you people dangerous ideas about how the world should be run,” Terry said.

Sotomayor’s dissent on the Michigan Affirmative Action case is a travesty

The case wasn’t to ask if affirmative action is constitutional. The case was to ask if states MUST engage in racial discrimination even if the people of the state do not wish to do so. The Wise Latina believes the United States Constitution requires racial discrimination.

Justice Sotomayor is here arguing in effect that if a constitutional referendum doesn’t go the NAACP’s way, then its effects are invalid. This is not an exaggeration: Justice Soyomayor argues explicitly that Michigan’s voters would have been within their rights to, for example, lobby university authorities to adopt race-neutral admissions standards but that by adopting a constitutional amendment insisting on race neutrality, thereby transferring the decision from the education bureaucrats to the people themselves and their constitution, they “changed the rules in the middle of the game.” Her opinion is legally illiterate and logically indefensible, and the still-young career of this self-described “wise Latina” on the Supreme Court already offers a case study in the moral and legal corrosion that inevitably results from elevating ethnic-identity politics over the law. Justice Sotomayor has revealed herself as a naked and bare-knuckled political activist with barely even a pretense of attending to the law, and the years she has left to subvert the law will be a generation-long reminder of the violence the Obama administration has done to our constitutional order.

In the Obamanation, even the most straightforward questions of fairness and decency are corrupted.

NSFW: The End Is Near

In centuries past God destroyed civilizations, and even the world, when it got to this stage.

This woman creates ‘Art’by laying paint-filled eggs from her vagina. She doers it in public, totally naked, and she calls it art.

An upright standing nude on a loft… One with ink and acrylic fueled egg… A preserved canvas…

What the spectators are about to expect, is the compressed birth of a piece of art.
Slowly the egg leaves the natal canal of the artist and smashes on the canvas, red colour flows out. The next egg contains another colour and so bit by bit, accompanied only by loud “Plops”, an abstract art work originates — archaically, uncontrollably and intuitively. At the end of this almost meditative art birth performance the stained canvas is folded up, smoothed and unfolded to a symmetrically reflected picture, astonishingly coloured and full of strong because universal symbolism.”

Media Matters: Hypocrites On Unionization

Color me shocked…

Despite huge donations from the Service Employees International Union and numerous blog posts advocating for unionization in other industries, Media Matters for America is actively resisting allowing its workers to join the union.

The SEIU has donated $150,000 to the liberal attack group between 2009 and 2012.  Those donations represented more than 20 percent of the $735,000 Media Matters took in from unions, including the National Education Association, AFL-CIO, and American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Workers, during that 4 year span.

Those donations have not helped SEIU win any favor in its attempt to unionize Media Matters employees. MMFA executives refused to recognize the card check campaign conducted by SEIU Local 500.

When the Maryland-based union presented signed cards from employees wishing to unionize to management, Media Matters gave “no reply,” according to NLRB filings obtained by the Center for Union Facts (CUF). The union will now have to win a secret ballot election if it hopes to organize the nonprofit.

CUF executive director Rick Berman said that MMFA’s dismissal of the card check campaign highlights the group’s hypocrisy on labor issues.

“Despite unions pouring $735,000 since 2009 into Media Matters, its chairman David Brock won’t even so much as reply to an organizing petition,” Berman said.

“BLM Eyes 90,000 Acres Of Texas Land”

They want to take the land away from ranchers along the Texas/ Oklahoma state line where the boundary is the Red River. As the river meanders they say the boundary changes. The BLM wants to define that change to the detriment of the ranchers. They have done it before without paying the ranchers for the land. Now they want to do it again.

From Breitbart:

In Texas,” Miller says, “the BLM is attempting a repeat of an action taken over 30 years ago along the Red River when Tommy Henderson lost a federal lawsuit. The Bureau of Land Management took 140 acres of his property and didn’t pay him one cent.”
Miller referred to a 1986 case where the BLM attempted to seize some of Henderson’s land. Henderson sued the BLM and lost 140 acres that had been in his family for generations. Now the BLM is looking at using the prior case as a precedent to claim an additional 90,000 acres.”

“Seventy-two killed resisting gun confiscation in Boston”

Boston – National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed on April 19 by elements of a para-military extremist faction. Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw.

Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement.

Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices. The governor, who described the group’s organizers as “criminals,” issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government’s efforts to secure law and order.

The military raid on the extremist arsenal followed wide-spread refusal by the local citizenry to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons. Gage issued a ban on military-style assault weapons and ammunition earlier in the week. This decision followed a meeting in early this month between government and military leaders at which the governor authorized the forcible confiscation of illegal arms.

One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out that “none of these people would have been killed had the extremists obeyed the law and turned over their weapons voluntarily.”

Government troops initially succeeded in confiscating a large supply of outlawed weapons and ammunition. However, troops attempting to seize arms and ammunition in Lexington met with resistance from heavily-armed extremists who had been tipped off regarding the government’s plans.

During a tense standoff in the Lexington town park, National Guard Colonel Francis Smith, commander of the government operation, ordered the armed group to surrender and return to their homes. The impasse was broken by a single shot, which was reportedly fired by one of the right-wing extremists.

Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange.

Ironically, the local citizenry blamed government forces rather than the extremists for the civilian deaths. Before order could be restored, armed citizens from surrounding areas had descended upon the guard units. Colonel Smith, finding his forces over matched by the armed mob, ordered a retreat.

And this, fellow Americans, is how the American Revolution began, in April, 1775.”

About Income Inequality…

1384270_304682266356156_5196141896882878125_n Here is an ad from September, 1975, click to enlarge.

It advertises a smallish, analog television that could get four channels here in Iowa. It was $599 with a trade-in. According to the online, inflation calculator, that is $2,563 in today’s dollars.

At Walmart, you can get a RCA 32″ Class LED-LCD 720p 60Hz HDTV with Built-In DVD Player for $199; no trade-in required. $199 is equal to $46.58 in 1975.

So, there you have it. $46/$199 vs $599/$2,563.

In 1975, federal minimum wage was $2.10 per hour. At that rate, you would need to work about 285 hours – or a little over seven 40 hour weeks – to gross enough to buy that low quality Sylvania television.

In 2014, the federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. At that rate, you need to work 27 hours, or a little over half a week to gross enough to buy the larger, hugely improved, digital television with the built in DVD player at Walmart.

All that is worth remembering as you read this…

“Capital in the Twenty-First Century” is Mr. Piketty’s dense exploration of the history of wages and wealth over the past three centuries. He presents a blizzard of data about income distribution in many countries, claiming to show that inequality has widened dramatically in recent decades and will soon get dangerously worse.

Mr. Piketty urges an 80% tax rate on incomes starting at “$500,000 or $1 million.” This is not to raise money for education or to increase unemployment benefits. Quite the contrary, he does not expect such a tax to bring in much revenue, because its purpose is simply “to put an end to such incomes.” It will also be necessary to impose a 50%-60% tax rate on incomes as low as $200,000 to develop “the meager US social state.” There must be an annual wealth tax as high as 10% on the largest fortunes and a one-time assessment as high as 20% on much lower levels of existing wealth. He breezily assures us that none of this would reduce economic growth, productivity, entrepreneurship or innovation.

This economist understands the Lafffer Curve and he understands that an 80% tax rate won’t raise much revenue from the rich. It will just destroy the rich.

Why destroy wealth? Because he knows he can’t make everyone rich so he prefers to make everyone poorer. Wealth disparities must be ended because they are growing, he says. To improve the world, he calls for the elimination high incomes and to reduce existing wealth through taxation, even if it doesn’t raise tax revenues.

If disparities are growing, I wonder how it is that a minimum wage worker in 1975 had to work more than seven weeks to purchase a low quality television and a minimum wage worker in 2014 can buy an unimaginably improved television after three days of work.

The reality is that, in terms of buying power, everyone is getting richer. Much, much richer. There is a disparity of wealth. Piketty, like all leftists, would prefer an equality of poverty. I doubt, however, that he would have it apply to published economists.

This is what happens when the Easter Bunny gets angry

5158920eea909

There comes a time when even the Easter Bunny has had all the abuse that he can silently endure. I spoke with him earlier today to get a recap of a local Easter Egg Hunt that didn’t go quite the way anyone had planned. In this particular instance there were quite a few liberal/progressive GCPAL’s (Godless Communist Presidential Ass Lickers) to be in attendance and the Easter Bunny was feeling a little anxious about the whole thing. I have the same issue at some of my family gatherings, which is why I always carry my Tomahawk to such events. I understand exactly how the Easter Bunny feels when having to deal with the public menace at large.

The Easter Bunny didn’t have a Tomahawk but he did have some alcohol on hand and he began to self medicate with it before the guests arrived. After the initial dosage began to take affect he became inspired. Easter Egg Hunt 2014 would be different from the rest. Years ago the Easter Bunny decided to go with plastic eggs in lieu of the colored hard boiled eggs of days gone by. The undiscovered eggs do eventually get located by way of smell. Unless Mom makes egg salad a LOT of eggs will go to waste. Nowadays they aren’t exactly cheap either. Plastic eggs are much better because they are reusable and no kid I know wants to eat hard boiled eggs for two weeks. They would rather have plastic eggs loaded with goodies on the inside. In this case they were to be loaded with gourmet Jelly Belly jelly beans, a favorite of children and adults alike. That’s what happened with most of the plastic eggs but not all.

As I said, THIS Easter Egg Hunt would be different.

Kooks Who Want War… God Save The Republic

OKLAHOMA CITY – A land dispute in Nevada  between rancher Cliven Bundy and the federal government began decades ago.

The Bureau of Land Management says Bundy was allowing his cattle to graze illegally which triggered a round-up of about 400 head of cattle last week.

Bundy claims his family’s cattle have grazed on the land since 1870 without interference from the government.

However, the Bureau of Land Management says Bundy hadn’t paid his grazing fees since 1993.

Over time, officials say those fees have amounted to more than $1 million.

As authorities herded the cattle, a standoff was sparked with members of the militia.

Organizers with the Oklahoma Militia say they have members in Nevada who claim Bundy’s cattle were unlawfully herded by the bureau.

The Oklahoma Militia says it is made up of nearly 50,000 volunteers.

Members say they are taking Bundy’s side and fear this practice could spread to the Sooner State.

Scott Shaw said, “Evidently in America we don’t actually own the property anymore if you ever did.”

Shaw says Oklahoma Militia members are ready to take up arms against the federal government if needed.

He said, “It’s up to the feds. The ball’s in their court! You can do this legally or if you want to try to do a land grab violently, you can do that. We’re going to resist you!”

Shaw says the militia has not had to defend Oklahoma from the government yet but members are becoming concerned.

Shaw said, “Just look around the country, they are doing it everywhere. If they can do it in Nevada, they can do it in Colorado, Texas. I mean, what’s to stop them from coming to Oklahoma? The only thing to stop them is ‘We the People’.”

However, not everyone agrees.

Sen. Jim Inhofe said, “You’ve got a bunch of people there trying to take the law into their own hands and they shouldn’t be doing that. And the Bureau of Land Management is not government-owned, it’s publicly owned. There’s a big difference there. I blame both sides.”

The Bureau of Land Management released the cattle after confiscating them.

I thought public-owned was the same thing as government-owned? Where am I mistaken here? As BLM is a bureau of the DOI, it seems like Senator Inhofe could use a lesson in government.

As to the kooks who want to start a war with the govt, I sure hope they wake up before it’s too late to squeeze the toothpaste back into the tube.
