Protecting Humanity from Ice Ages

3rd July 2015

Read it.

There are two kinds of ice ages; they are fundamentally different and therefore require different methods of mitigation: (i) Major (Milankovich-style) glaciations occur on a 100,000-year time-scale and are controlled astronomically.  (ii) “Little” ice ages were discovered in ice cores; they have been occurring on an approx. 1000-1500-yr cycle and are likely controlled by the Sun.  The current cycle’s cooling phase may be imminent — hence there may be urgent need for action.

Montana Trio Applying for Marriage License

2nd July 2015

Read it.

Nathan Collier and his wives Victoria and Christine applied at the Yellowstone County Courthouse in Billings on Tuesday in an attempt to legitimize their polygamous marriage. Montana, like all 50 states, outlaws bigamy — holding multiple marriage licenses — but Collier said he plans to sue if the application is denied.

“It’s about marriage equality,” Collier told The Associated Press Wednesday. “You can’t have this without polygamy.”

We told you so….

Political Correctness 101: Praising America, Virtues of Hard Work Dubbed ‘Micro-Aggression’ on Campuses

2nd July 2015

Read it.

Simply asking someone “Where are you from?” or calling America “the land of opportunity” is now considered offensive at some colleges and universities, where such “micro-aggressions” are detailed in training programs and seminars for new faculty and staff.

Other examples of “offensive” statements include, “I believe the most qualified person should get the job,” “Affirmative action is racist,” Everyone can succeed in this society, if they work hard enough,” When I look at you, I don’t see color,” and “I don’t believe in race.” A full list of these “offensive” statements can be seen here. The newly forbidden terms were initially identified in a 2007 American Psychologist publication by Columbia University’s Psychology and Education Professor Derald Wind Sue, that has now become a key training primer for incoming faculty at schools including the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.

Reminder: Crazy People Are Dangerous

1st July 2015

The Other McCain makes sure it doesn’t slip our minds.

How many times do I have to explain this? You let enough kooks run around loose — as has been the policy in this country since we de-institutionalized the mentally ill in the 1970s — and people adjust their expectations. People become accustomed to encountering weirdos, freaks and lunatics, jabbering madness to themselves on street corners or posting deranged nonsense on Tumblr blogs. You’re not even supposed to notice there is anything strange about these wild-eyed nutjobs roaming around with facial piercings, tattoos and purple hair. I’ve been denounced as an “ableist” for pointing out that a Tumblr feminist is mentally ill, even though her “about” page listed a long litany of psychiatric diagnoses and her writing was self-evidently crazy.

Well, you can’t call them “crazy” anymore, because then you’re stigmatizing the mentally ill, and stigma is bad. Probably not as bad as getting bashed in the face with a hammer, however.

15 Reasons ‘Marriage Equality’ Is About Neither Marriage Nor Equality

29th June 2015

Read it.

Unintended consequences usually come about when we are ignorant or maybe lazy about a course of action. But we usually crash land after following an arc of logic, which in this case has gone largely undiscerned and unaddressed in the public square.

Americans are in a fog about how marriage equality will lead to more central planning and thought policing. This is partly because the media and Hollywood only provide slogans to regurgitate while academics and judges push politically correct speech codes to obey.

Let’s explore the fallout of that arc of faulty logic. Included below are some 15 of the gaping holes in the “marriage equality” reasoning that Americans have not thought through.

A Big Week for American Politics

28th June 2015

Read it.

First, it is now officially ludicrous to say that the Supreme Court just interprets the law.  The majority in the King v. Burwell decision essentially rewrote the law to give their decision some twisted justification.  Their opinion showed that the desire among six of the Justices for there to be an Obamacare is greater than their desire for our Constitution to work as designed.  As Justice Scalia said in his dissent, even though Congress specifically wrote a law that says subsidies are only for “exchanges established by the state,” “This Court…concludes that this limitation would prevent the rest of the Act from working as well as hoped.  So it rewrites the law.”   This type of judicial activism has been in the works for a while, but for it to have carried the day in such a high-profile, consequential case means no one knows where the limits are anymore. The unelected few assuming this much power is new and dangerous.

And that decision, in turn, gives twisters like John Roberts no leg to stand on when the leftist faction on the Court, with its pet Kennedy, turned around and did the same with the Constitution on ‘gay marriage’.

None of this bodes well for our democracy.  It’s not partisan wrangling that turns people off; it’s the complete dysfunction and hypocrisy combined with deceit and malfeasance that voters have seen becoming routine, like it is all part of a game and no one is held to account. And I do blame the Democrats more for perpetuating this culture of dishonesty and lack of transparency.

As do I, although Republicans are perhaps even more culpable because they know the truth and yet turn from it.

Greece Runs Out of Other People’s Money

28th June 2015

The Other McCain tells you the truth that you aren’t getting from Voices of the Crust.

In addition to Margaret Thatcher’s famous maxim about socialists eventually running out of other people’s money, there is also Stein’s Law. This was coined by Herb Stein, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers during Richard Nixon’s presidency: “If something cannot go on forever, it will stop.” And the problem of the Eurozone’s weaker nations expecting bailouts from their rich neighbors obviously cannot go on forever. So what happens when it stops? We don’t know.

Two San Diego Firefighters Stabbed While Aiding Ill Man on Trolley Platform

26th June 2015

Two San Diego firefighters were hospitalized with multiple stab wounds a day after a bystander attacked them as they were helping a drunken man on a packed trolley platform Wednesday.

One firefighter was stabbed in the back and both were stabbed more than once. Police and other firefighters rushed to the scene and authorities arrested a suspect.

Ben Vernon, 32, was more seriously injured and had several stab wounds to his torso and punctured a lung, officials said.

Alex Walbertt, 37, also had multiple wounds to his torso but was expected to be released from the hospital sometime Thursday night.

Calais Still in Crisis as French Say It’s Not Their Problem

24th June 2015

Read it.

Crowds of young men were filmed yesterday using crowbars to break into lorries queuing to get into the Channel port.

French police found 350 migrants hidden in cars and trucks in just four hours.

Tensions continued to flare yesterday, with two truckers clashing with migrants after one tried to break into a stationary lorry.

One migrant was seen to climb on to a lorry’s roof, while two others managed to break into the back of a slow-moving HGV with the help of a third migrant.

Another migrant declared: “I need a better life in England and I will do whatever it takes.”

The UKIP MEP for Wales Nathan Gill, whose Eurostar train was forced to return to Brussels on Tuesday afternoon, said: “These are economic migrants. They have travelled across Europe to get to Calais.

“It is the duty of the French Government and police to deal with this. But the only French police you see are directing traffic. They ignore the migrants walking up and down the road and just let them keep on trying to get through.

LAZY cheese-eating surrender monkeys.

Nigeria: The Islamic Empire Strikes Back

24th June 2015

Read it.

The new president (Muhammadu Buhari) has been in charge for 26 days and Boko Haram has responded with attacks killing about 200 people. Buhari’s biggest problem is not Boko Haram but the endemic corruption that led to Boko Haram and lawlessness all over the country. While the people of the northeast see Buhari (a Moslem) as a man who will do more to crush Boko Haram, most Nigerians see Buhari as the cure for corruption. When it comes to battling corruption Buhari is considered the underdog. Not because he does not have position and power, and the support of most Nigerians, but because the corrupt politicians, businessmen and gangsters have lots of money, gunmen and determination to keep their corrupt practices functioning. Based on past experience in Africa, defeating Boko Haram will be easier than making a serious dent in corruption.

Britain Faces FREEZING Winters as Slump in Solar Activity Threatens ‘Little Ice Age’

23rd June 2015

Read it.

Climate experts warn the amount of light and warmth released by the sun is nosediving to levels “not seen for centuries”.

They fear a repeat of the so-called ‘Maunder Minimum’ which triggered Arctic winter whiteouts and led to the River Thames freezing 300 years ago.

The Met Office-led study warns although the effect will be offset by recent global warming, Britain faces years of unusually cold winters.

A spokesman said: “A return to low solar activity not seen for centuries could increase the chances of cold winters in Europe and eastern parts of the United States but wouldn’t halt global warming.

“Return of ‘grand solar minimum’ could affect European and eastern US winters.”

How about that Global Warming, huh?

Calais Chaos: Eurostar SUSPENDED as Striking Ferry Workers Storm Train Tunnel

23rd June 2015

Read it.

Trouble began when migrants camped out in the region tried to exploit wildcat strike action by ferry workers.

Lorry drivers were forced to slow due to queueing traffic and hundreds were attempting to clamber on board the UK-bound vehicles.

Ferry workers, striking over fears of job cuts, then began trespassing on the Eurotunnel tracks where they set fire to tyres, causing services to be cancelled for the rest of the day.

This is what happens when your government offers cushy benefits to anybody who shows up.

Trucker Chris Cary, 32, said: “When you are queueing you keep yourself locked in your cab and are constantly looking in your mirrors.

“They tried to break the locks and seals. I knew they had been at them because when I checked my vehicle I saw they were all twisted, bent and loose.”

He was supposed to get on a ferry at 3.45am this morning to drive £19,000 worth of energy drinks to his employers MJD’s warehouse in Dartford, Kent.

After hearing of the strike, he tried to get to the Eurotunnel train and drove through a road block of burning tyres erected by the strikers.

Some of the French workers threw rocks at his truck as he drove past.

Business Can Pay to Train Its Own Work Force

22nd June 2015

Read it.

But won’t. So they import them from overseas on H-1B visas.

This is how employment is supposed to work. Companies hire broadly educated workers, invest in appropriate training, and reap the profits of a specialized work force.

Increasingly, however, employers have discovered a way to offload the nettlesome cost of worker training. The trick is to relabel it as education, then complain that your prospective employees aren’t getting the right kind.

“Business leaders have doubts that higher-education institutions in the U.S. are graduating students who meet their particular businesses’ needs,” reads the first sentence of a Gallup news release issued last year. Barely a third of executives surveyed for the Lumina Foundation agreed that “higher-education institutions in this country are graduating students with the skills and competences that my business needs.”

Gun-Free Zones an Easy Target For Killers

That’s because killers ignore those twee little signs. Duh.

From last summer’s mass public killers in Santa Barbara and Canada, to the Aurora movie theater shooter, these killers made it abundantly clear in their diaries or on Facebook how they avoided targets where people with guns could stop them.

Many of the characteristics that make someone good at being a parent — frugality, responsibility, selflessness — have become punchlines for an entire generation when it comes to talking about dad.

Affinity has become primary.  It’s not the people who murder in the name of their identity that feel they must explain themselves any more.  It is those who for some quaint reason are stubbornly patriotic to that most lost of causes, the nation of memory or the brotherhood of man, that are called upon to justify themselves. When people are willing to renounce an American, Australian, British or German passport for the privilege of killing strangers in the name of their hyphenated prefix it clearly raises the question of whether the glue that Western society is counting on to hold things together has any more adhesive power.

Lesvos: Visiting the Tiny Greek Island Receiving Tens of Thousands of Refugees

20th June 2015

Read it.

The overcrowded makeshift camp, lacking bathrooms, food and blankets, is not how the refugees imagined Europe. But Greece is struggling to cope with the tide of boats arriving on its islands from neighbouring Turkey. Amid an economic crisis, the country has received more than 55,000 refugees since January, an almost tenfold increase on the 6,500 arrivals in the first five months of last year.

Lesvos, an island just five miles from the Turkish coast, has been bearing the brunt of the influx. More than 20,000 refugees – from Afghanistan, Syria, Libya and elsewhere – have arrived on its shores this year. With the peak season for migration set to begin, the island is already overwhelmed. Some 3,000 refugees are currently on Lesvos, according to the UN refugee agency UNHCR.

The island’s reception camp, close to the capital, Mytilene, has a capacity of 400 but now shelters more than 1,000 refugees waiting for the papers that will allow them to continue on to Athens.

Uh, excuse me? I have a question? Why are these people not being returned to Turkey? Put them in a landing craft, take them to the Turkish shore, encourage them to depart with, oh, say, cattle prods?

I see no indication that these are ethnic Greeks, so what’s the problem?

Hungary Proposes 110-Mile Long Barrier Along Entire Serbian Border to Keep Migrants Out

Peter Szijjarto, the Hungarian foreign minister, claimed the 13ft tall fence would not contravene international law and was necessary to “defend” his country.

“The Hungarian government is committed to defending Hungary and defending the Hungarian people from the immigration pressure,” he said on Wednesday.

These aren’t Serbs or other Europeans; they’re Iraqis, Somalians, Turks, Syrians, and such like.

The Western Balkan route is used by migrants moving out of countries in the region and refugees coming from further afield who entered the EU from Turkey via Bulgaria or Greece.

The Serbian government had already asked for help stopping people arriving over its southern borders.

Eye of Soros Turns Toward Nice White Lady Schoolteachers

18th June 2015

Read it.

In recent years, the Eye of Soros has been bored with racial disparities in public school teacher hiring, but that grace period may be coming to an end.

The general pattern relating to disparate impact enforcement is that our society can’t afford to impose this logic on all parts of society at once. For example, back five or six years ago when liberals were all worked up over not enough black firemen, I frequently pointed out that Silicon Valley seemed to be immune to denunciations for discrimination. Eventually, that changed and right now the SJWs aren’t interested in fire departments and are obsessed with Silicon Valley. But ten years from now the SJWs might be all worked up over, say, Hollywood film crews and sullenly aware that you can’t just hire a bunch of Michael Browns to write code.

The Postcolonial Rot Spreads Beyond Middle East Studies

16th June 2015

Read it.

In theory, Middle East studies programs are a good idea. One of the biggest impediments to countering modern jihadism has been the lack of historical knowledge about the region and Islam. But even the attention and urgency that followed the terrorist attacks on 9/11 have not led to such knowledge. The result has been policies pursued both by Republicans and Democrats that are doomed to fail, as the current chaos in the region attests.

Rather than enlightening citizens and policy-makers, Middle Eastern studies programs have darkened our understanding. As Martin Kramer documented in his important 2002 study Ivory Towers on Sand, most programs have become purveyors not of knowledge but of ideology. Under the influence of literary critic Edward Said’s historically challenged book Orientalism––”a work,” historian Robert Irwin has written, “of malignant charlatanry, in which it is hard to distinguish honest mistakes from willful misrepresentations”­­––Middle East studies programs, Kramer writes, “came under a take-no-prisoners assault, which rejected the idea of objective standards, disguised the vice of politicization as the virtue of commitment, and replaced proficiency with ideology.” The ideology, of course, comprised the old Marxist narrative of Western colonial and imperial crimes, a Third Worldism that idealizes the dark-skinned, innocent “other” victimized by Western depredations, and the juvenile romance of revolutionary violence.

UK: Double Divorces on the Rise as Ex-Spouses Bring New Claims Against Their Former Partners

15th June 2015

Read it.

Double divorces have come to prominence in recent months thanks to the case of millionaire Ecotricity founder Dale Vince, whose wife Kathleen Wyatt has been given permission by the Supreme Court to seek a payout 30 years after they divorced.

Without a financial order severing their respective finances, an ex-spouse can bring a new claim against their former partner, even years after the marriage was dissolved. Many couples fail to obtain a court order to formalise their financial agreement when they divorce, often because they have reached their own informal settlement.

Moral: DO YOUR PAPERWORK.

California Professors Instructed Not to Say ‘America Is the Land of Opportunity’

15th June 2015

Read it.

“America is the land of opportunity,” “There is only one race, the human race” and “I believe the most qualified person should get the job” are among a long list of alleged microaggressions faculty leaders of the University of California system have been instructed not to say.

Actually, this is perfectly consistent with their ongoing efforts to make sure it is no longer a land of opportunity. They’re just being honest.

These so-called microaggressions – considered examples of subconscious racism – were presented at faculty leader training sessions held throughout the 2014-15 school year at nine of the 10 UC campuses. The sessions, an initiative of UC President Janet Napolitano, aim to teach how to avoid offending students and peers, as well as how to hire a more diverse faculty.

A very good reason to avoid California, especially the schools (if you can still call them that).

Why Hillary Clinton Loves the Ex-Im Bank

15th June 2015

Read it.

Hillary attempts to justify her position by claiming the bank is vital for American exports. According to Clinton, Ex-Im is “a tool for us to be competitive in order to support our businesses exporting.” In reality, the bank’s financing goes to major corporations that do not need loans to be competitive. Over three quarters of Ex-Im loans benefit ten well-connected corporations.  Less than one percent of one percent of US small businesses benefit from Ex-Im.

So why does Hillary Clinton support Ex-Im? Well, as the Washington Examiner’s Tim Carney points out, a more appropriate name for Ex-Im bank may be the International Bank of Clinton. During a 2012 Ex-Im Conference, Bill Clinton said that “this audience is full of people who once worked for me.”

Most notably, Ex-Im President Fred Hochberg was a Clinton appointee and in 2008 he was a “Hillraiser”, meaning he helped raise six figures for Hillary’s failed Presidential campaign. Hochberg also donated a five figure sum to the Clinton Foundation, the non-profit that has come under scrutiny for – among other things — accepting donations from foreign leaders while Clinton was Secretary of State.

The Pecking Disorder: Social Justice Warriors Gone Wild

12th June 2015

Read it.

Privilege rhetoric offers an absurdly simplistic view of complex social dynamics. A widely cited essay by pro-“social justice” sci-fi writer John Scalzi seeks to explain privilege to geeks by arguing that being a straight white male is akin to playing a videogame on “the lowest difficulty setting.” Does the white son of a poor single mother have it easier than the daughter of a wealthy black couple? As a minor afterthought, Scalzi mentions that “players” in other groups may be better off if they start with more “points” in areas such as wealth. But generally, the “social justice” left strenuously avoids the issue of socioeconomic background, which, despite upward mobility, is surely the most tangible and entrenched form of actual privilege in modern American society. Rather, the focus is on racial, sexual, and cultural identities.

Writers are by their natures socialist because few of them would have the opportunity to ‘pursue their passion’ unless funded by somebody else. The preferred Santa Claus is, of course, a government, however construed, although parents and spouses also get their pockets picked in this Noble Cause.
