Ilana Mercer was born and educated in one of my most favorite places, South Africa. I usually side with both her and Dinesh D’Souza but Mercer claims D’Souza commits such a huge mistake in the premise for his film that serious thinkers should give it no quarter. The film has much to recommend it.  Mercer did spot a serious omission but the film is still well worth viewing.
Both Mercer and D’Souza however fail in the same way. Neither roots America in “Capitalism”. The serious thinker would know the film would be far better if it rested on a proper set of philosophical values but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth watching. Most intellectual endeavors fail to be based on the proper values from Metaphysics, to Epistemology to Ethics and Esthetics. Jefferson failed to include them in the Declaration of Independence so let’s not go around condemning everything that’s not based on a correct philosophy. It’s going to take time before the world follows the correct philosophy. In the meantime we must learn the correct set of values and virtues based on the correct philosophy and live our lives with the knowledge that few will grasp those principles.
It’s not much different today in regards to philosophy than it was about the shape of the earth before is was finally understood to be a sphere.

 A correct philosophy is available. It’s Ayn Rand’s Objectivism but not only is Objectivism relatively unknown it’s also condemned by people who should know better. Objectivism has the burden of requiring a correct philosophy before it can be understood and it has to be well understood before it can be practiced. Get a short Synopsis of Objectivism HERE.
To understand how primitive the human race is so far as philosophy is concerned, consider a correct basis for all knowledge. That’s what metaphysics is supposed to provide but it doesn’t. If it did the human race could move into Epistemology which should be based on a proper metaphysics. Se the problem? Step two requires a correct step one but since most people don’t grasp step one it’s impossible to grasp step two.
So, … back to “America; Imagine A World Without Her”. Since it’s like most things, philosophically flawed it will have to be evelauate on less than perfect philosophy. Better to advise people to learn the correct philosophy but thats a major undertaking. Best to just watch the movie on it’s own merits. It’s well worth the time.

Let’s agree there are two kinds of jobs. Jobs which most people can do and jobs which fewer people can do. Airline pilots, crane operators, business owners, managers are jobs which not everyone can do. If an unqualified person is hired to be a crane operator the mistake will quickly become obvious.
Suppose a poll of crane operators finds black people are under-represented compared to the percent of black people in the overall population. Should government force crane owners to hire incompetent operators?
Only if black people can operate cranes. Is the company guilty of racism because there is an insufficient number of black crane operators?
What about airline pilots? Should airlines be forced to hire a certain percentage of black pilots when there are few black airline pilots? Is the airline racist because it has a lower percentage of black pilots than the percent of blacks in the population? Yes if the thinking of the Left is in control.
How about professors who can teach physics? Math? Spanish? Are schools racist if they have a lower percent of blacks? Yes if the thinking of the Left is in control.

Why is she busy with nonsense about what word or words President Trump said instead of using her influence, name and popularity to actually help needy black people? There are problems aplenty in the black neighborhoods that Omerosa could help with. Why isn’t she stepping up? 

She needs to talk to Kanye West, … to Oprah, to the kneeling NFL players and start to solve real problems instead of nonsensically showboating about the president. 

The FBI released its official crime tally for 2016 on Monday. Nearly 900 additional black people were killed in 2016 compared with 2015, bringing the black homicide victim total to 7,881. Those 7,881 “black bodies,” in the parlance of Ta-Nehisi Coates, are 1,305 more than the number of white victims (which in this case includes most Hispanics) for the same period, though blacks are only 13 percent of the nation’s population.
The increase in black homicides last year comes on top of a previous 900-victim increase between 2014 and 2015.

Who is killing these black victims? Not whites, and not the police, but other blacks. Where is Omerosa?

 In 2015, a police officer was 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male was to be killed by a police officer.

Black males have made up 42 percent of all cop-killers over the last decade, though they are only 6 percent of the population. That 18.5 ratio undoubtedly worsened in 2016, in light of the 53 percent increase in gun murders of officers — committed vastly and disproportionately by black males. None of those unfortunate homicides were caused by president Trump. None were caused by the “N Word”.

Have you noticed the large percentage of people who marry people with the same color skin? Notice also the color of the skin of babies and compare that with the skin colors of their parents. Why is skin color inherited? 

 “There are, after all, in this world, some people who are naturally aggressive and violent,” Bannon wrote, evoking one of scientific racism’s ugliest contentions: -that black people are more genetically predisposed to violence than others. In the book: “Why Race Matters” by Michael Levin it is revealed that in Washington, DC 85% of the black males will be arrested at least once in their lives. See page 290, 1st paragraph, last phrase to make sure it’s an accurate quote. But is it an accurate statistic? Because if it is there’s a set of serious problems associated with black people, at least in the Washington D.C. area. 

Not to mention the hideous negative reception given Professor Charles Murray, the surviving author of “The Bell Curve” because of the information in it on race. It claims that based on the results of Intelligence tests and head sizes that Orientals are the smartest race. Can that possibly be true? the Bell Curve argued that poor people, and particularly poor black people, were inherently less intelligent than white or Asian people. When it was first published in 1994, it became a New York Times bestseller, but over the next few years it was attacked more than it was praised. It continues to be a best seller.   

Another one of the people behind the revival of race science was, not long ago, a mainstream figure. In 2014, Nicholas Wade, a former New York Times science correspondent, wrote what must rank as the most toxic book on race science to appear in the last 20 years. In “A Troublesome Inheritance”, he repeated three race-science shibboleths: that the notion of “race” corresponds to profound biological differences among groups of humans; that human brains evolved differently from race to race; and that this is supported by different racial averages in IQ scores.

In 2005, Steven Pinker, one of the world’s most prominent evolutionary psychologists, began promoting the view that Ashkenazi Jews are innately particularly intelligent – first in a lecture to a Jewish studies institute, then in a lengthy article in the liberal American magazine The New Republic the following year. This claim has long been the smiling face of race science; if it is true that Jews are naturally more intelligent, then it’s only logical to say that others are naturally less so.

The background to Pinker’s essay was a 2005 paper entitled “Natural history of Ashkenazi intelligence”, written by a trio of anthropologists at the University of Utah. In their 2005 paper, the anthropologists argued that high IQ scores among Ashkenazi Jews indicated that they evolved to be smarter than anyone else (including other groups of Jews).

This evolutionary development supposedly took root between 800 and 1650 AD, when Ashkenazis, who primarily lived in Europe, were pushed by antisemitism into money-lending, which was stigmatised among Christians. This rapid evolution was possible, the paper argued, in part because the practice of not marrying outside the Jewish community meant a “very low inward gene flow”. This was also a factor behind the disproportionate prevalence in Ashkenazi Jews of genetic diseases such as Tay-Sachs and Gaucher’s, which the researchers claimed were a byproduct of natural selection for higher intelligence; those carrying the gene variants, or alleles, for these diseases were said to be smarter than the rest.

Pinker followed this logic in his New Republic article, and elsewhere described the Ashkenazi paper as “thorough and well-argued”. He went on to castigate those who doubted the scientific value of talking about genetic differences between races, and claimed that “personality traits are measurable, heritable within a group and slightly different, on average, between groups”.

In subsequent years, Nicholas Wade, Charles Murray, Richard Lynn, the increasingly popular Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson and others have all piled in on the Jewish intelligence thesis, using it as ballast for their views that different population groups inherit different mental capacities. Another member of this chorus is the journalist Andrew Sullivan, who was one of the loudest cheerleaders for The Bell Curve in 1994, featuring it prominently in The New Republic, which he edited at the time. He returned to the fray in 2011, using his popular blog, The Dish, to promote the view that population groups had different innate potentials when it came to intelligence.

Words are important for many, many and varied reasons including proving people guilty of being a racist when they use a forbidden word like the “N Word”. But is the use of a word important especially compared to actions?

Chain Migration removes Immigration Control from America and gives it to newly arrived people.

President Trump is correct when he says: ” CHAIN MIGRATION must end now! Some people come in, and they bring their whole family with them, who can be truly evil. NOT ACCEPTABLE!”

The president doesn’t go into further explanation. He doesn’t explain how the government is not in control of immigration when immigrants control immigration. Neither Immigration nor Chain migration is a Right under our Constitution.

The Worst Best Country. A land blessed by nature itself. 

Beautiful, productive, loaded with important gemstones, minerals, everything except people and oil, South Africa, .. Southern Africa has become a killing field from which white people must hurry and leave.

Race looms in South Africa as the government is in the business of killing it’s white citizens. Genocide, Infanticide, Holocaust, carnage, mass murders, massacres aainst white people, the government sanctioned slaughter of white people, the annihilation and decimation by race, with the plan, desire and intent to exterminate white people because they are white. the government and the people of South Africa are engaged in the business of the extermination of the white race in Southern Africa.

Each person is a member of a race. Racial Identity comes at birth and never leaves. If there is such a thing as race based superiority it comes from nature, not from the supposedly racially superior people.

Look at Intelligence.

The ability to notice certain things is the beginning of the set of attributes used to identify the intellectual ability of an individual. Intelligence is not an attribute of a group. .

Look at Skin Colour.

There’s no clear, convincing set of attributes that makes individuals members of a race. Skin color may seem to be a good way to tell the difference between racially different people but there’s a continuum of color from light to dark or from dark to light that defies any attempt to claim a certain color is the dividing line of the continuum.

Predominantly Black Footballers are protesting something but it’s not clear to them just what it is they are against.

President Trump made an offer to protesting NFL players. If they pass along cases of people they felt were victims of the criminal-justice system, he would consider pardons. The president asked them for the names of prisoners he should pardon.

In response they didn’t offer any names. They asked for a “blanket pardon” for non-violent drug offenders who had already served long sentences. They wanted to change the deal even though it was their deal to begin with.

Looks like NFL Football will not be watched by millions this season…… Good!

Why not clean up the acts of the overwhelmingly black prison population? Why not go to the communities where most black males have been arrested, jailed, hunted for or on parole? That’s where most of the crimes are; that’s what the police are for and it’s not up to anybody connected to the NFL to care about anything except football. 

If certain players won’t stop they need to exit the NFL because there’s a time and place for everything just as there are times and places that are for specific things

A Great New Set Of Really Dumb Ideas. . . . 

Thanks to my brother for this one. He got the idea to call good things junk then  pay people to come and remove the good stuff, now called junk.

Socialism is where everyone pays for everything. Capitalism is based on barter and trade. My brother invented a third way. Inverted Capitalism.  His way is the inversion of Capitalism, the inversion of trade.  Here’s how it worked with a Wurlitzer piano.

Selling things is not a new idea but wealth really increased when money was invented. . 

Money has been a part of human history for almost 3,000 years. The fantastic increase in the population is because of money. Human progress began when figured out how to barter and trade with each other. Human progress took off when money was invented.  but many people call the love of money the root of all evil. 

Ayn Rand asked: “Have you ever asked what is the root of money?” She answered: “Money is a tool of exchange, which can’t exist unless there are goods produced and men able to produce them.”

Let that sink in because without goods there is no need for money.

Money is the material shape of the principle that men who wish to deal with one another must deal by trade and give value for value. My brother came up with the next idea which is idea to pay someone to take your products. Give them both a product and some money. 

 The piano was bought at full retail by my parents for my sister who was taking piano lessons. My sister passed away and her piano was in her house so my brother wanted to get rid of the piano. His idea was to call it junk then call a moving company to remove the junk and he paid them for doing it.

The piano was worth maybe $1,500 tops but my brother paid the movers $500 to remove it. Cost? Instead of getting $1,500 he paid someone to take it for their own use. The cost was a loss of the piano, the $1,500 it was worth plus the $500 to take it. Instead of a piano we got a bill for $500. Did it cost him $500 or $2,000?  

It’s like buying a new car and the dealer would pay you to drive it away. Imagine F.C. Kerbeck paying people thousands of dollars to come and get a new Cadillac. Kerbeck would set records for moving the highest number of Cadillac’s . . .  until his money ran out.

My brother got rid of maybe $4,000 to $7,000 worth of good, salable furniture, tools, perfume and fur coats by paying people to come and get them. He thinks he saved time by doing things that way without grasping that he lost a lot of money by selling stuff by paying people to take it.

Next he’ll sell the house itself by paying someone to take it off his hands.

I gotta stop that. There’s a limit to how agreeable I am to his inverted ideas. The man is one big ball of wreck but he can’t put one stone on top of another to make something.

Former UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson is refusing to apologize despite pressure from Britain’s political class — including Prime Minister Theresa May — after he said Muslim women who wear the burqa look like “bank robbers” and “letter boxes.”

The Conservative Party MP made the remarks in a column for The Daily Telegraph, in which he pushed back against Denmark’s recent ban on the full body and face covering, saying that while he thought that the clothing looked “ridiculous,” he didn’t think a ban was an appropriate measure.
