Gay Leather Bar Owner Runs for Governor in Texas

20th July 2017

Read it.

After Abortion Barbie, there was nowhere else to go….

Jeffrey Payne, who won the title of International Mr Leather in 2009, hopes to challenge the state’s current Republican governor, Greg Abbott, who announced his bid for reelection last week.

Sounds like the perfect Democrat candidate.

“Texas needs a Governor who believes in Real Texas Values, like integrity, honesty, freedom and independence,” Mr Payne said.

In other words, not a Democrat.

“We need to stop wasting our time and money on trivial legislation and start investing in finding ways to help Texans, their families, and their businesses prosper.”

At taxpayer expense, no doubt.

In an interview with CBS Dallas, Mr Payne said he does not think Texas voters will focus on his same-sex marriage – or, presumably, on his connections to the BDSM-tinged gay leather community.

Stairway to Bureaucracy

20th July 2017

Read it.

A Toronto man who spent $550 building a set of stairs in his community park says he has no regrets, despite the city’s insistence that he should have waited for a $65,000 city project to handle the problem. The city is now threatening to tear down the stairs because they were not built to regulation standards.

Bureaucrats get snippy when you show them up.

Retired mechanic Adi Astl says he took it upon himself to build the stairs after several neighbours fell down the steep path to a community garden in Tom Riley Park, in Etobicoke, Ont. Astl says his neighbours chipped in on the project, which only ended up costing $550 – a far cry from the $65,000-$150,000 price tag the city had estimated for the job.

 Think of all the cronyism he spoiled, the swine.

Astl says he hired a homeless person to help him and built the eight steps in a matter of hours.

Surely he didn’t have a permit for that? And liability insurance? Did he withhold taxes properly?

City bylaw officers have taped off the stairs while officials make a decision on what to do with it. However, Astl has not been charged with any sort of violation.

Hang in there, it’s early days yet.

“I think everyone will understand that it will be more than $550,” he said on Wednesday. “We just can’t have people decide to go out to Home Depot and build a staircase in a park because that’s what they would like to have.”

Geez, next thing you know this place will turn into a democracy. Can’t have that, not in Modern Socialist Canada.

We’ve featured several articles in the news feed about the Italian threat to give visas to hundreds of thousands of “refugees” and send them to its northern borders. The following report from an Austrian perspective indicates that an Italian migrant-aid NGO — the Italian Refugee Council — is behind the threats, rather than the Italian government.

Italy must really suck if people prefer to go to Austria. (Kind of like France and Britain. What do they know that we don’t know?)

Members of African Robotics Team Go Missing, Two Seen Crossing Canadian Border

20th July 2017

Read it.

All six members of the teenage Bundi robotics team were reported missing Tuesday, after they were last seen at during a competition at Constitution Hall, reports Fox 5 DC.

Two of them, 16-year-old Don Ingabire and 17-year-old Audrey Mwamikazi, were seen trying to get in to Canada, D.C. police said. The other four, 18-year-old Richard Irakoze, 17-year-old Kevin Sabumukiza, 17-year-old Nice Munezero and 18-year-old Aristide Irambona, have yet to be sighted.

Gee, I wonder why.

The African teens had traveled to America to participate in a robotics competition hosted by FIRST Global. The competition draws young adults around the world and encourages them to pursue math and science fields.

Indeed, and chase them all the way into the Great White North.

The Mother of All Disruptions

20th July 2017

Read it.

Warning: don’t read too much about the future of jobs in an era of Artificial Intelligence if you are—psychologically speaking—in a dark place. If you’re a lover of the arts and humanities, for example, you should probably go full hermit in the basement of a university library with plenty of provisions (but no WiFi). If you greet all technological advances with gee-whiz enthusiasm, you’d best avoid long conversations with people who make a living driving trucks or reading X-rays. If you’re an antiglobalization protectionist, get ready to look with longing on a time when the biggest threats to jobs were NAFTA and an ascendant China. And even if you believe in the long-term benefits of what economist Joseph Schumpeter called creative destruction—as I do—prepare to have your convictions tested.

Low-Income Americans Wage Growth Outpacing High-Income Salaries

20th July 2017

For the first time in roughly a decade, the weekly take for workers in the bottom 10th percentile of the wage scale grew at a quicker rate in the second quarter of 2017, from the same period in 2016, than any other class of laborers, according to the Labor Department. The last time the lowest end of the pay scale outpaced other groups was in 2010.

Damn that Trump! He keeps screwing things up! What happens to the Narrative if low-income wage earners’ incomes grow faster than the 1%?

Eggheadization

Severian follows culture down the tubes.

There are 350+ million people in America today; Elizabethan England had maybe 3 million.  Just as a matter of simple probability, there should be some world-class sonnet-writers around right now…

… but, of course, there aren’t, because sometime in the later 19th century our universities started awarding degrees in English Literature.  You’ve got to justify all those years in grad school somehow, and so by the 1950s you had J. Evans Pritchard, PhD, laying down mathematical formulae for judging a poem’s excellence.  And now only Diversity Pokemon write poetry.  Seriously, can you even name a 20th century poet, let alone quote him?

Well, T. S. Elliot, but nothing since 1960, since that’s when the rot set in. (No, Maya Angelou is not a poet; she is a Poetry Affirmative Action Hire.)

Profs Fear White Supremacists Are Infiltrating Medieval Studies

20th July 2017

Read it.

Oh noes!

Academics are now finding white supremacy under the medieval studies bed. As Campus Reform reports, some professors of the period fear that the forces of the “alt-right” are using using this storied age to advance a dangerous “white supremacist fantasy.”

Vassar College professor Dorothy Kim issued this dire warning to The Chronicle of Higher Education last Sunday: “It should be a really, really important time to reflect on why are these things going on and what we can do to combat that. The worry I would have is that, is the field going to be forever linked to white supremacy?”

The worry that I have is, is this going to be another field that surrenders respect for reality to pursue a Leftist political agenda?

The Slavery Paper

20th July 2017

Severian waxes philosophical.

You may not know that our educational system has its roots in Prussia.  So, as you might expect, it’s designed to crank out little automatons, who can be good soldiers or good factory hands as needed.  That system prevailed in America until the 1970s, when the first wave of hippies started having kids and decided to “educate” them using the theories of John Dewey.  Dewey’s method was the Prussian’s opposite —  free play, cooperatvie learning, and all the other stuff that was called “self-esteem” back in the 70s.

But eventually all but the most bong-addled hippies realized that the Prussian method produced kids who could actually get and hold jobs… but, being hippies, they couldn’t give up on, like, feeeelings, maaaan, so by the late 80s we had more or less the current system, which is the worst of both worlds — the industrial production of Special Snowflakes.  Nobody’s different from anybody and everyone’s the best at everything.  It’s a pedagogical nightmare.  How does one simultaneously encourage each of 300 kids to develop his own special uniqueness, while training him to ace the standardized test?

Nobody has yet figured out the “ace the test” part (which is why every year brings some massive cheating scandal in a public school district), but we’ve nailed the “develop his special uniqueness” part — put Social Justice platitudes on the standardized test.  You know you’re a brave, free-thinking iconoclastic nonconformist when you have the exact same opinions as every other brave, free-thinking iconoclastic nonconformist.  By the time I get them, then, these kids are past masters at SocJus mad-libbing an essay prompt.  You could pose a question about the economic development of Singapore, seen through the lens of Medieval Finnish Poetry, and you’d still get something about the plight of underrepresented minorities and the horrors of homophobia.

Which brings us to The Slavery Paper.  Nonblack students are at least expected to exercise a little ingenuity in coming up with their SocJus mad-libs.  Blacks, by contrast, only ever write papers about Blackness.  And since it’s impossible to fail the Blacks and keep your job, anyone who teaches Intro to Anything gets a million Slavery Papers every single goddamn semester, to the point where we can all recite it, chapter and verse, from memory.

Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush Again …

19th July 2017

Steve Sailer turns over a rock.

Millions of dollars will soon be spent in Richmond to help increase the number of African-Americans homeowners. A newly announced partnership between Housing Opportunities Made Equal of Virginia, Inc. (HOME) and Wells Fargo will provide $4 million to help close the racial home ownership gap.

Some things I discovered back in 2008:

– There are a gigantic number of these type of “fair housing” NGOs across the country. One national association of them had over 600 organizations as members.

– A lot of these NGOs fighting white racism in mortgage lending are run by white people like Ms. Crislip.

– A $4 million payoff is a lot to an NGO, but is a minor cost of doing business to one of the Four Big Banks like Wells Fargo. The mortgage market is so big that the word “trillions” comes up: for example, in January 2005, Countrywide Financial launched the metastasization of the Housing Bubble when Angelo Mozillo, having attained agreement from Fannie Mae to buy his dubious mortgages, announced his plan to lend One … Trillion … Dollars to minority and lower income borrowers by 2010.

– The Obama Administration had lots of schemes to rake off mortgage money to its allies in these kind of NGOs that search out examples of disparate impact and trumpet them until they get paid off.

Green Cronyism Gone Wild: It Looks Like the State of California Is Bailing Out Tesla

19th July 2017

Read it.

Tesla will soon hit the limit of the federal tax rebates, which are good for the first 200,000 EVs sold in the US per manufacturer beginning in December 2009 (IRS explanation). In the second quarter after the manufacturer hits the limit, the subsidy gets cut in half, from $7,500 to $3,750; two quarters later, it gets cut to $1,875. Two quarters later, it goes to zero.

Given Tesla’s ambitious US sales forecast for its Model 3, it will hit the 200,000 vehicle limit in 2018, after which the phase-out begins. A year later, the subsidies are gone. Losing a $7,500 subsidy on a $35,000 car is a huge deal. No other EV manufacturer is anywhere near their 200,000 limit. Their customers are going to benefit from the subsidy; Tesla buyers won’t.

This could crush Tesla sales. Many car buyers are sensitive to these subsidies. For example, after Hong Kong rescinded a tax break for EVs effective in April, Tesla sales in April dropped to zero. The good people of Hong Kong will likely start buying Teslas again, but it shows that subsidies have a devastating impact when they’re pulled.

That’s what Tesla is facing next year in the US.

In California, the largest EV market in the US, 2.7% of new vehicles sold in the first quarter were EVs, up from 0.4% in 2012, according to the California New Dealers Association. California is Tesla’s largest market. Something big needs to be done to help the Bay Area company, which has lost money every single year of its ten years of existence. And taxpayers are going to be shanghaied into doing it.

Are We Seeing the Sparks of a Holy War in Jerusalem?

19th July 2017

Read it.

Oh, say it ain’t so.

The faithful leaving Jerusalem’s al Aqsa mosque yesterday evening were thrilled for the after-party. Marching on and around Temple Mount, they chanted cheerful slogans like “We will sacrifice our lives for al-Aqsa,” “We will die as martyrs,” “There’s going to be another Intifadah,” and “There’s nothing like killing soldiers.” More than a few were throwing rocks and glass bottles at the Israeli police officers stationed nearby. Among the rioters was Ekrima Sa’id Sabri, the former Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, a popular preacher in al Aqsa, and a Holocaust denier who energized the crowd with talk of holy war.

To what do we owe this pleasure? To hear the mob tell it, the violence was a legitimate expression of outrage sparked by Israel’s decision to install metal detectors at the entrance to the holy site. And Israel, you may recall, installed metal detectors at the entrance to the holy site after three Palestinian terrorists opened fire there Friday morning, killing two Israeli police officers who happened to be Druze. As David Horovitz put it crudely but poignantly, “Arabs killed Arabs at a holy place, the Jews are trying to ensure that it doesn’t happen again, and the Arab world is furious with the Jews about it.”

Jonathan Kay on the Tyranny of Twitter: How Mob Censure Is Changing the Intellectual Landscape

19th July 2017

Read it.

… for certain rather expansive definitions of ‘intellectual’.

In a 1945 essay, Notes on Nationalism, George Orwell described a rumour among leftists that the real reason American troops had been brought to Europe was to suppress English communism, not fight the Nazis.

“One has to belong to the intelligentsia to believe things like that,” Orwell famously noted. “No ordinary man could be such a fool.” Even by Orwell’s high standards, those words have aged extremely well. Tell an ordinary Canadian schlub that white people aren’t allowed to quote Beyoncé, and he will be smart enough to laugh in your face. Dress down a superbly intelligent Peace and Conflict Studies PhD candidate for the same act, and she will fall over herself with apologies.

Just as Muslim terrorists tend to kill more Muslims than non-Muslims, PC ThoughtCrime mobs tend to attack their own co-delusionists more often than their opposition.

The Zeroth Amendment

19th July 2017

Steve Sailer boils it down.

A little-known survey revealed the single most decisive reason Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton: White Democrats have drifted into ideological extremism over not regulating immigration.

By way of background, a general problem in political science with using polls to track ideological trends over the years is that you want to keep asking the same questions to see how voters’ responses evolve. But that means that pollsters seldom ask about new beliefs that would have seemed bizarre even in the recent past.

In turn, pundits, lacking polling data to write about, don’t even mention historic developments, such as the rise of mainstream antiwhite American hate discourse over the past half decade. For most mainstream journalists to notice their own increasingly vicious racist attitudes would be like a fish noticing it is wet.

Strange Obsessions

Kevin Williamson says you can’t make this stuff up.

Texas politics is in the midst of a kind of double civil war. The Democrats have not yet figured out that being the party of little old liberal white ladies with a fanatical dedication to defending the abortion license is a thing of the past for a party whose future is younger and browner than its present. The Democrats are torn between being the party of Elizabeth Warren and the party of the guy who cuts her grass, and it is inevitable that the people who provide the Democrats with their votes and manpower are going to eventually start asking why it is that their policy agenda, which is economically focused, is being held hostage to the excretory and sexual obsessions of a relatively tiny cabal of Wellesley graduates and puffed-up assistant vice principals.

The Myth of Drug Expiration Dates

18th July 2017

Read it.

Gerona and Cantrell, a pharmacist and toxicologist, knew that the term “expiration date” was a misnomer. The dates on drug labels are simply the point up to which the Food and Drug Administration and pharmaceutical companies guarantee their effectiveness, typically at two or three years. But the dates don’t necessarily mean they’re ineffective immediately after they “expire” — just that there’s no incentive for drugmakers to study whether they could still be usable.

ProPublica has been researching why the U.S. health care system is the most expensive in the world. One answer, broadly, is waste — some of it buried in practices that the medical establishment and the rest of us take for granted.  We’ve documented how hospitals often discard pricey new supplies, how nursing homes trash valuable medications after patients pass away or move out, and how drug companies create expensive combinations of cheap drugs. Experts estimate such squandering eats up about $765 billion a year — as much as a quarter of all the country’s health care spending.

California Doubles Down on Subsidizing Wealthy Buyers of Electric Cars

18th July 2017

Read it.

California Assemblyman Phil Ting believes “electric cars are our future,” and he’s willing to spend a lot of taxpayer money to make that future happen.

In what he describes as an “aggressive boost” to the “electric car revolution,” Ting (D–San Francisco) has proposed the creation of a $3 billion fund to subsidize the purchase of electric vehicles, mostly through tax rebates. The legislation has already passed California’s lower house.

California has already spent a bundle on such schemes, which have produced little in the way of electric car adoption while funneling hundreds of millions of dollars to the state’s wealthiest residents.

“Clean eating? That’s some rich white people shit.”

Can’t say he’s wrong….

I recently attended a lunch held by one of the country’s foremost organic companies. The event’s host—a yoga teacher who lives in a Connecticut suburb where the streets are jammed with hybrid luxury SUVs and single-source organic almond milk lattes in every cupholder—explained how the brand’s holistic world view aligned with her own.

Puttin’ on the Crust.

I don’t buy organic, think the anti-GMO movement is basically BS, and eat a bowl of Lucky Charms with conventional whole milk every night of the week. And for 30 years I’ve somehow not only survived, but thrived. My docs say my health is stellar—on my diet of what is, apparently, filthy, fake food. Am I a miracle of biology? Not even close.

Probably voted for Trump. The swine.

Deweese says she hates the term clean eating. “It’s a social status thing. It’s more about ‘I’m better because I eat clean,'” she says. Adds Scott-Dixon, “‘Clean eating’ is a preoccupation of people who, in socioeconomic terms, really don’t have any real, legitimate worries. It’s a first-world problem.”

Minneapolis Police Kill Australian Woman Who Called 911 to Report Assault

17th July 2017

Read it.

Justine Damond, a native of Sydney who lived in Minneapolis with her fiancé, was killed in the alley behind her home while talking to police officers that had responded to the 911 call. Sources told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that Officer Mohamed Noor, who was seated on the passenger side of his police cruiser, shot Damond through the driver’s side window while she was talking to the driver.

Mohammed coefficient = 1. Perhaps he objected to her not wearing a burqa.

“At one point an officer fired their weapon, fatally striking a woman,” the BCA said in a news release. “BCA crime scene personnel located no weapons at the scene.”

‘Their’ weapon? They only had one weapon between them?

Noor joined the Minneapolis Police Department in March 2015 as the first Somali police officer to patrol the 5th precinct on the city’s southwest side, reports the Star Tribune. He was sued in connection with an incident in May in which he and two other officers went to a woman’s home and took her to the hospital. The woman, whom the officers suspected of suffering from mental illness, claimed that Noor “grabbed her right wrist and upper arm,” re-injuring her existing shoulder condition.

Lots of Somalis in Minnesota.
