Whether or not you care to admit it individuals are not equal. The idea that people are equal applies only to the administration of the law, not to the physical qualities of individuals which are different and diverse. Perhaps in the sense that there is a range of physical differences, skin for example comes in various colors, and intelligence is often in a range for various groups of people. White people, actually various shades of cream do not excel as runners compared to black people who have longer legs and narrower hips. 

Next time you hear someone say people are equal, remind them they are individuals meaning they are not equal at all.

In addition to the foregoing article written by “These Eyes” which warns about nuclear weapons in Iran, is the knowledge and ability to enrich uranium which knowledge is rather commonplace in the nuclear chemical worlds of the friends and the enemies of Israel which with president Trump on the job will have a more difficult job getting nuclear weapons into the Middle East. The good nations of the world will have to keep up the spying that we do in those places to, for example, bomb the reactor like Israel did years ago and/or to neutralize and eliminate the threats to civilization posed by the mullah’s of Iran and their friends.

THE TRUMP DOCTRINE

Both on the campaign trail and in office, President Trump has been clear about the need for bold American leadership to put the United States’ security interests first. This commonsense principle reverses the Obama administration’s preferred posture of “leading from behind,” an accommodationist strategy that incorrectly signaled diminished American power and influence.

Written by a friend….

“These Eyes”
“When the Iran deal was signed the first thing that crossed my mind was a nuclear power race in the middle east. Not a nuclear arms race, but a nuclear technology race. The arms race comes later, because the Saudis have some catching up to do and logic dictates that the first player in that race would be Saudi Arabia. The House of Saud has put its nuclear plans on overdrive, building its first plant on the outskirts of Riyadh with plans to build more. 
The thing about the first reactor isn’t the reactor itself, which is small and poses no real threat to any of its neighbors. The problem is that the Saudis are going use this plant as a teaching facility, so its scientists can learn all they can about nuclear power. So, the second that Iran spins those first 
centrifuges, in violation of the P5+1 nuclear accords, the Saudis will be in an excellent position to violate IAEA accords and a nuclear arms race will ensue. 
The Saudis are putting out contracts for its new commercial reactors and in spite of the fact that CIA director Mike Pompeo says that “We will not permit that to happen anywhere in the world,” Pompeo told CBS. “The President understands the threat of proliferation. We will never write a $150 million check to the Saudis and hand them over the capacity to threaten Israel and the United States with nuclear weapons, never.” In spite of all that rhetoric, the US wants to be involved. The thinking is this, is it better if we build these plants or is it better if the Russians or the Chinese build them?If we build them we know that protocols will be met. We will have eyes on the ground and intimate knowledge of every bolt and every rivet. We will have the blueprints and if the Saudis try build a bomb we will know were to hit. But politically its impossible. The mere thought of the US building nuclear plants for Saudi Arabia is frightening. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said last year that “without a doubt if Iran developed a nuclear bomb, we will follow suit as soon as possible.” I cannot imagine waking up to a nuclear armed Iran and Saudi Arabia because if they ever solve their differences Israel is in real trouble. This is going to happen and with the Iran deal we set the wheels in motion. We need eyes on the ground.
These Eyes will not watch you bring our world to an end.”

Experts predict 75,000 more U.S. stores could be closing because of more on-line shopping but that ignores the new stores being built. Aldi’s has been opening new stores and expanding existing stores at a good clip while food retailer Redner’s has been closing some of their stores as rents and property values increase because of inflation. Demographics have changed where people live. When crime increases people move away to more safe places and business in the inner cities decreases as more poor people occupy the declining real estate. The poor are unable to properly care for their homes. They have less money so they are unable to repair broken windows. They burn the doors and moldings to help get heat. They have fewer cars so fewer auto-repair shops and gas stations are needed. Unkept homes become unsafe and must be demolished. Increasing government real estate taxes make rent un-affordable which forces the poor to double up in houses which increases fire risk. Increased fires, poor maintenance and lack of affordability make things worse and increase anger at government, against white people who are seen as oppressors so race-based hatred goes up.

From the reconstructed aircraft photo it looks like something blew off the right wing. There were several reports of a flash in the sky. The weather was OK… Definitely VFR, not as was often written or implied as IFR, instrument flight rules. JFK Jr. had more than enough flying experience to have safely landed on the very long runways at Martha’s Vineyard main airport. Plus there are . Was it murder? Was it an assassination? It sure seems like it was  so yes and yes but there’s no official source to conclude that.
