Snoop Dogg says he will not be watching ‘Roots.’

He wants no part of it.

“They going to just to keep beating that shit into our heads about how they did us, huh?” the rapper says.

Snoop Dogg has no plans to watch the Roots remake, and he’s telling his fans to also boycott the show.

The rapper sent out his message over social media on Monday.

“I’m sick of this shit. How the f— are they going to put Roots on, on Memorial Day?” Snoop said in an Instagram video. “They going to just keep beating that shit into our heads about how they did us, huh?”

The History channel’s revival is a four-part, eight-hour series that debuts Monday.

Snoop said he has no interest in new shows and movies — specifically mentioning 12 Years a Slave — that “keep showing the abuse we took hundreds and hundreds of years ago.”

“I ain’t watching that shit, and I advise you motherf-—ers as real n— like myself; f— them television shows,” Snoop said. “Let’s create our own shit based on today, how we live and how we inspire people today. Black is what’s real. F— that old shit.”

Frankly, I get his point and I agree with it. For decades shows like roots have portrayed black people as victims. While that may have been healthy in the 1970s in the wake of the Civil Rights Movement, it is no longer so.

So many Americans have clamored to wear the mantle of victimhood that it is almost universal. Millions try to reap the benefits of being a victim but with the benefit comes cost. Snoop seems to be tired of wallowing in victimhood. He wants to move on. He wants to put that shit in the past. He isn’t a victim and he knows it. In fact, he is the opposite of a victim.

He is tired of the charade. That’s healthy, in my opinion.


The wisdom of the people in making decisions…

People don’t know what they want because they don’t know what they don’t know.

You might have heard that Americans overwhelmingly favor mandatory labeling for foods containing genetically modified ingredients. That’s true, according to a new study: 84 percent of respondents said they support the labels.

But a nearly identical percentage—80 percent—in the same survey said they’d also like to see labels on food containing DNA.

The study, published in the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology Journal last week, also found that 33 percent of respondents thought that non-GM tomatoes “did not contain genes” and 32 percent thought that “vegetables did not have DNA.” So there’s that.



The Title IX Paradox


According to the Obama Administration, Title IX requires that schools allow students to use restrooms and locker rooms that conform to the gender identity they have adopted, not necessarily to the one they were born. But Title IX does more than let boys in the girl’s room. Title IX requires schools to protect students from sexual harassment.

Under Title IX, sexual harassment in education includes any unwanted and unwelcome sexual behavior that significantly interferes with a student’s access to educational opportunities. This includes making sexual comments, jokes, gestures, or looks; claiming that a person is gay or lesbian; spreading sexual rumors about a person; touching, grabbing or pinching someone in a sexual way; intentionally brushing up against someone in a sexual way; and flashing or “mooning” someone.

In other words, Title IX requires both that schools let boys use the girl’s locker room AND that girls in the locker room be protected from sexual harassment in the form of unwanted looks or flashing.

Okay folks, release the lawsuits! This should be interesting.

Trump gets his 1,237 delegates

That pretty much ties it up.

The Associated Press declared Thursday that Donald Trump earned the support of enough delegates to win the nomination at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July.

Based on interviews with several dozen unbound delegates — those free to vote as they choose in Cleveland — the AP determined that enough had pledged support to Trump to guarantee him support of the 1,237 delegates required to clinch the nomination.

About 200 of the delegates are unbound so if it turned out that Trump was on Putin’s payroll or, worse, on Hillary Clinton’s payroll he could still be thrown under the bus at the convention. That’s not going to happen, however.

I will go on the record as predicting that the Democrats have an October Surprise queued up and it will be a doozy.

On to the general election!



Are you hipster enough to vote for Hillary?

There is something really desperately fucked up about the left in America. The same leftist tools who thought Pajama Boy was a good idea gives us this.


Does anyone, anywhere who going to look at this ad and determine that he would be more manly if he voted for Hillary?

There is nothing manly about being a foppish urban tool with a trendy tattoo sleeve, a trendy hipster beard and a trendy haircut. In fact, the image screams “urban dandy of undetermined sexual preference.”

Seriously, do you think that clown can dress out a deer, rebuild a carburetor, field strip an M-60, fell a tree, kill a communist or any of the other things real men do? Hell no! The guy is the image of manly in the minds of undersexed coeds in the liberal arts college at CUNY and, of course, gay men everywhere.

In honor of the Clinton’s new ad campaign, I offer up an equally appropriate musical selection to help you decide if you are manly enough to vote for Hillary.


What’s up with Republican Candidate Donald Trump?


As I did below with Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, I decided to see how much I agree and disagree with the Republican candidate Donald Trump. I pulled his positions on the issues from this site.

Each item below is color coded. If I agree and I think most Revoistas would agree, I coded it green. Disagreement is coded red. If an item is coded yellow, I have either no opinion, a mixed response or don’t fully understand the point of the item.

Most of what is below is yellow because most of it doesn’t outline a policy. In most cases that I applied yellow, the item in question is simply a prediction, an opinion or an unverifiable statement with which I couldn’t agree or disagree.

Watch Katie Couric perpetuate a fraud

Couric interviewed a group of gun rights supporters and asked them a question to which they seemed to have no response. Watch.

What Couric did was deceptively edit in other video the the gun rights supporters sitting quietly to make it look as though they had no response. This technique was standard practice to create yucks on the Daily Show.

“Look at the rubes! Ask them a tough question and they sit there like idiots.”

The thing is, they did have responses. Several of them. Give a listen.

This is clearly journalistic fraud. People who have legitimate arguments do not engage in fraud. Couric and the gun grabbers have no such legitimate arguments.


The Washington Post turns on Hillary Clinton

The editorial board of the WaPo harshly criticizes Clinton’s reckless disregard for security.

HILLARY CLINTON’S use of a private email server while secretary of state from 2009 to 2013 has been justifiably criticized as an error of judgment. What the new report from the State Department inspector general makes clear is that it also was not a casual oversight. Ms. Clinton had plenty of warnings to use official government communications methods, so as to make sure that her records were properly preserved and to minimize cybersecurity risks. She ignored them.

The 83-page report declares that “beginning in late 2005 and continuing through 2011,” the department revised its Foreign Affairs Manual and “issued various memoranda specifically discussing the obligation to use Department systems in most circumstances and identifying the risks of not doing so.” Ms. Clinton didn’t.

If Clinton has lost the Washington Post, she is in trouble. The Post, however, is still telling us that willful mishandling of federal documents is just a rules violation, not a crime. That can only be true for those above the law… Like Clinton. For normals, it is definitely a high crime.

Read it all.

TSA created this crowd of people…

This is a Transportation Security Administration created crowd. This crowd wouldn’t exist if TSA could do the job Americans have spent billions for TSA to do.

CHICAGO, IL - MAY 16:  Passengers at O'Hare International Airport wait in line to be screened at a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checkpoint on May 16, 2016 in Chicago, Illinois. Waiting times at the checkpoints today have been reported to be as long 2 hours. The long lines have been blamed for flight delays and a large number of passengers missing flights completely.  (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images)

What do we know about this crowd that TSA created? Well, we know that they are carrying backpacks and pulling roll-on luggage. We know that they are packed together in a tight area. We know that none of them have been screened.

If you were an ISIS handler of a suicide bomber, what would you see? You would see a target rich environment and the opportunity to shut down America’s airports for months.

Why, it’s almost like TSA is setting them up so ISIS can knock them down, isn’t it?


State Dept. Inspector General states the obvious…

The Clinton Crime Family did not exclude cyber crime from their repertoire of criminal acts.

The State Department’s independent watchdog has issued a highly critical analysis of Hillary Clinton’s email practices while running the department, concluding that she failed to seek legal approval for her use of a private email server and that department staff would not have given its blessing because of the “security risks in doing so.”

The inspector general, in a long awaited review obtained Wednesday by The Washington Post in advance of its publication, found that Clinton’s use of private email for public business was “not an appropriate method” of preserving documents and that her practices failed to comply with department policies meant to ensure that federal record laws are followed.

The report says Clinton, who is the Democratic presidential front-runner, should have printed and saved her emails during her four years in office or surrendered her work-related correspondence immediately upon stepping down in February 2013. Instead, Clinton provided those records in December 2014, nearly two years after leaving office.

A “Normal” would be in prison.

American workers are not being replaced by Chinese workers..

They are being replaced by robots.

Of course they might be replaced byChinese robots…

Apple and Samsung supplier Foxconn has reportedly replaced 60,000 factory workers with robots.

One factory has “reduced employee strength from 110,000 to 50,000 thanks to the introduction of robots”, a government official told the South China Morning Post.

Xu Yulian, head of publicity for the Kunshan region, added: “More companies are likely to follow suit.”

China is investing heavily in a robot workforce.

Is everyone a plant?

Mexican national Anti-Trump protesters in Albuquerque do their best to help Trump. What could be more beneficial to the Trump campaign than lawless Mexicans spouting profanity? If they were Trump plants, they couldn’t have helped him more.


The strange paradox of the Trump campaign is that his most enthusiastic alt-right supporters actually help Hillary and his most angry opponents make the best case for him.

It is a very strange election year.


An inconvenient truth…

In the US, there have been fewer strong hurricane strikes than any time since records have been kept.

The last major hurricane (defined as a Category 3 or above) to hit the U.S. mainland was Hurricane Wilma, which made landfall in Florida on Oct. 24, 2005.

Although a major hurricane typically strikes the U.S. about once every two years, no major hurricanes have made landfall in the U.S. for more than 10 and a half years.

The second longest stretch between major hurricane strikes was between the major hurricane that struck in August 1860 and the one that struck in September 1869, NOAA records show. The third longest stretch was between the major hurricane that struck in September 1900 and the one that struck in October 1906.

Down the Memory Hole to 2005…

Three new reports authored by prominent scientists — published in the journals “Nature” and “Science” — bolster that theory’s credibility.

“There’s good evidence to show that Category 4 and 5 storms indeed are becoming more common and a bigger part of the overall pictures of the hurricanes in the world,” said Kevin Trenberth, a scientist at the government-funded National Center for Atmospheric Research.

Trenberth is the author of one of the papers, which links stronger hurricanes to warmer seas and global warming caused by humans. Global warming, he says, has caused increases in sea levels and in the temperature of the oceans, which increases water vapor in the atmosphere and provides fuel for massive storms.

Don’t worry. When the next big hurricane hits, the AGW alarmists will be there to say, “See? Told you so!”


Rise of the Fast Food Machines


As I have said many times, if you are an unskilled worker, it won’t be a foreigner who takes your job. It will be a machine.

A former McDonald’s CEO warned that robots will take over staff jobs at the fast food empire – because it’s cheaper than employing humans.

Ed Rensi has said that buying highly skilled robotics is a cheaper alternative than employing people on minimum wage to work in the company’s worldwide restaurants.

He warned that huge job losses are imminent, and commented that it would be ‘common sense’ to replace humans in the workplace.

We have, yet again, let Obama down…


In Vietnam, Obama explains the ways in which Americans have disappointed him.

In an address to the people of communist-ruled Vietnam on Tuesday, President Obama made a case for the importance of upholding human rights, prefacing it by saying that the United States, too, “is still striving to live up to our founding ideals.”

“No nation is perfect,” he said at the National Convention Center in Hanoi. “Two centuries on, the United States is still trying to striving to live up to our founding ideals.”

“We still deal with our shortcomings – too much money in politics, and rising economic inequality,” Obama continued. “Racial bias in our criminal justice system. Women still not being paid as much as men doing the same job. We still have problems and we’re not immune from criticism – I promise you, I hear it every day.”

He is attempting to be self-effacing as he leads up to criticizing Vietnam’s one-party human rights violation. It is a common rhetorical device. The thing is, there is no moral equivalence between America’s founders and the communist party of Vietnam. None.


This might be something: Gary Johnson is pulling 10%

Ten percent is a lot for a third party candidate.

A Morning Consult survey published Tuesday and found Clinton getting 38 percent of the vote, Trump 35 and Johnson 10, with 17 percent undecided. A Fox News poll conducted from May 14-17 showed Trump leading over Clinton, 42 percent to 39 percent, but Johnson at 10 percent as well. Lest you think this is some fluky May development, a Monmouth University survey conducted in mid-March — while the political universe was still busy wringing its hands over the Republican nomination — found that in a three-way race, Clinton would get 42 percent, Trump 34 percent and Johnson 11 percent.

Given that Trump and Clinton are sporting historically high negative ratings, Johnson’s polling makes a fair bit of sense; Gary Johnson is neither Donald Trump nor Hillary Clinton. He might not win a state, but he could make some noise.

If this took off and he won a few states thus denying any candidate 270 electoral votes, it would put the election in the House of Representatives. That has only happened twice before. It would be raw entertainment and damned good TV. The chances of that happening, however, are infinitesimally small.

Still, Americans have never disliked candidates like they dislike the two major parties’ presumptive nominees this time around.



Good Wealth vs Bad Wealth

Former U.S. presidential candidate Romney speaks to the Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Maryland

Mitt Romney is a capitalist. So is Donald Trump. Trump is the hero of certain segments of the white working class. These same people had nothing but contempt for Romney’s capitalist and corporate credentials. Why does the working class fear the capitalism of Mitt Romney and embrace the supposed business savvy of Donald Trump?

There are many reasons why the working class prefers the personality of Trump. He is a shock-jock approved churl who isn’t afraid to engage in vulgarities such as discussing sex with his wives or the attractiveness of his daughter’s body. He is a reality television star who is a purveyor of high prole entertainment such as Miss Universe and The Apprentice.

Mitt Romney carries an air of high-brow haughtiness and sincere religiosity that is not well received by the proletarian white working class. They sneer at what they see as snobbery and puritanical priggishness. These are most certainly not, on the other hand prejudices faced by Mr. Trump.

Let’s isolate the differences in Romney and Trump as capitalists, however. Even here, the two men are seen by Trump supporters in a very different light.

Hive Mind and the Inevitable Failure of Central Planners

This post is from the archives. It was originally posted on November 16, 2013. I am posting it again for two reasons. First, because I am really proud of it. 🙂 Secondly, I am posting because it is background for another post that I have queued up for later today.


“What we’re also discovering is that insurance is complicated to buy.” ~Obama, 11/14/13

Honey Bees AI

If schadenfreude was corn flakes, last week would have been General Mills. For four years conservatives have been telling the world exactly what would happen with the implementation of Obamacare and, by golly, it is happening. It turns out that a bunch of Ivy League trained apparatchiks cannot, in fact, stay up all night and, between bong hits, effectively reorder the lives of hundreds of millions of people. Last week, the leftist belief that central planning can make you a better person ran headlong into the iron laws of economics. It was a beautiful thing.

F.A. Hayak called their jackassery the “Fatal Conceit” and famously said, “The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine they can design.” Last week was just such a demonstration.

To understand the Fatal Conceit, let’s talk about honey bees. Honey bees are able to do some pretty amazing things. They can form swarms and move from place to place, they can form hives, they can divide labor, they can care for and feed their queen, they can find pollen and communicate its location to other bees based on the position of the sun, they can heat and cool their hive as necessary, they can build wax combs, they can make and store honey, they can care for larva and much more. Bees are pretty amazing. It’s like they have this whole, complicated social industrial complex.

The thing is, no bee can go into business for himself. No bee brain contains an understanding of how to do all of the things listed above. Yet, as a group, they do it. Complex bee behaviors are accomplished through a principle called “hive mind”. While no bee can organize the hive, all of the bees together can. There was no plan for the bees, no blueprint, no white papers, no legislation, no bureaucracy and no Ivy League elites producing five year plans. Bees, somehow, know how to run the hive not individually, but across the minds of thousands of bees. The knowledge to run the hive is distributed. There is no centralized control structure dictating how individual bees should behave. Localized interactions between bees lead to the emergence of “intelligent” global behavior that is incomprehensible to individual bees. It isn’t just bees that have access to the hive mind, however.

More than 20,000 Fast and Furious docs ordered released

This is good news although it isn’t like we don’t already know what happened.

It was a bad news day for President Barack Obama and his former U.S. attorney general, Eric Holder. A federal judge has ordered that more than 20,000 pages of documents related to the infamously, not-forgotten Fast and Furious episode be released. The deadly, Obama administration’s governmentally administrated gun-running scandal was previously hidden from public view, according to a New York Post report on Saturday. The alleged coverup was conducted via an ill-fated executive order which was adhered to by a cooperative media. The judge’s order is to expose what many critics have believed all along.

As one may recall, Fast and Furious was a program designed by the U.S. Justice Department with Eric Holder at the helm. The program gave Mexican drug cartels permission to by assault weapons. The weaponry included .50-caliber rifles which are extremely powerful. At the time, it was alleged by the Obama administration that Mexican drug cartels would be easily tracked via the sale of the weapons. However, it was later found that the goal of the project was to actually create a gun drisis in the United States which would call for a crackdown on guns in the country.

It was a daring plan and they’d have gotten away with it too if it wasn’t those meddling kids… and gross incompetency.

Lindsey Graham says vote against Hillary

Even Trump’s harshest GOP critic says to vote for the least bad candidate.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, one of Donald Trump’s fiercest critics, is now calling on Republicans to support their presumptive nominee.

Graham urged GOP donors at a private fundraiser Saturday in Florida to unite behind Trump’s campaign and stressed the importance of keeping likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton from the White House. The fundraiser was hosted by former U.S. Ambassador to Portugal Al Hoffman, a former Republican National Committee finance chairman who also co-chaired Sen. John McCain’s 2008 presidential bid.

“He did say that we need to get behind him,” Teresa Dailey, a prominent Florida Republican fundraiser who attended the private event, told CNN on Sunday.

Trump: ‘Who The Hell Cares About a Trade War?’

The stupid: It burns.

At his first rally in nearly two weeks, Trump struck a defiant tone as he promised to bring back American jobs. “We’re losing $500 billion to China,” he said at a fundraiser for endorser New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. “Who the hell cares about a trade war?”

“We’re like a big, big sloppy bully who gets punched in the face and gets knocked down,” Trump said of the United States, saying he would make “great deals” for the country. “My trade deal is very simple, I am going to make great deals for our country,” he added, “It might be free, it might not be free.”

Trump’s proposals include a 35% tariff on the import of goods produced overseas by American companies and the repeal North American Free Trade Agreement, signed by former President Bill Clinton.

So is Donald Trump a moron or is he a demagogue who assumes you are a moron? I can’ decide. At least he and roger are aligned on this issue, huh?

Trump thinks winning is all that matters. To him, trade is a horse race between nation and the purpose of trade is to win. In fact, for every winner there is a loser. This, of course, is abject, idiotic, nonsense. Frédéric Bastiat explained in 1845…

Here as elsewhere we find the advocates of protectionism taking the point of view of the producers; whereas we defend the cause of the unfortunate consumers, whom they absolutely refuse to take into consideration. The protectionists compare the field of industry to a race track. But at the race track, the race is at once means and end. The public takes no interest in the contest aside from the contest itself. When you spur your horses on with the single end of learning which is the fastest runner, I agree that you should equalize their weights. But if your end were getting an important and urgent piece of news to the winning post, would it be consistent for you to put obstacles in the way of the horse that had the best chance of getting there first? Yet that is what you protectionists do with respect to industry. You forget its desired result, which is man’s well-being; by dint of begging the question, you disregard this result and even go so far as to sacrifice it.



The leftist assault on the Redskins team name has nothing to with Indians


Native Americans don’t give a damn about the name.

Nine in 10 Native Americans say they are not offended by the Washington Redskins name, according to a new Washington Post poll that shows how few ordinary Indians have been persuaded by a national movement to change the football team’s moniker.

The survey of 504 people across every state and the District reveals that the minds of Native Americans have remained unchanged since a 2004 poll by the Annenberg Public Policy Center found the exact same result. Responses to The Post’s questions about the issue were broadly consistent regardless of age, income, education, political party or proximity to reservations.

In other breaking news, polls reveal 9 in 10 coastal limousine liberals, college activists, cultural Marxists and other leftist assholes wish the damned Indians would just shut the fuck up and let them handle this. This was never about Indians for gawd’s sake. This is and has always been about leftist control of the culture.

Personally, I am highly offended by the name Washington Redskins. That the team name includes the name of the sewer on the Potomac is very troubling. They should immediately change the name to the Virginia Redskins.
