Has the World Gone Totally Mad?

2020 June 4
by bc3b

Better question: can the United States (or even western civilization) be saved?

It has happened several times before. The police arrest a nondescript black man with a criminal past who is on drugs after he commits a minor criminal offense. He dies (in this case is killed) in police custody. Suddenly, it’s the most important thing in the world.

White men also die in police custody (or are killed by the police) at a higher rate than black men, but this goes unreported by CNN  because it doesn’t fit the network’s narrative that the United States is a racist country and that the primary goal of police departments is to oppress black people.

But with George Floyd, it’s gone father than ever into the realm of craziness and stupidity:

  • Rioting and looting have become forms of peaceful protest
  • An NFL quarterback cannot express an opinion that people should respect the nation’s flag without being attacked from all sides
  • In St. Louis and other cities, a George Soros puppet states attorney released rioters without charges
  • There’s a movement to de-fund police
  • Police are praised for standing by idly while vandals smash windows and loot stores
  • In Michigan the governor has no problem with major protests (because they are outside), yet parents can’t take children to an elementary school playground
  • Catholic bishops and other clergy demand racial justice without understanding the cause of the problems
  • Supermarkets have arrows making aisles one way and Xs to indicate 6 feet at check outs, yet several thousand people can congregate in close proximity for a protest and/or riot. What happened to “social distancing” the left claimed was so important?
  • A reparations bill is about to be studied by the House so that people who never owned slaves can pay reparations to people seven generations removed from slavery

BET Founder Robert L. Johnson has called for $14 trillion in reparations for slavery. $14,000.000,000,000 – that’s a nice round number and one with a lot of zeros.

Let’s do a little math:

There are approximately 330,000,000 people living in the United States. 13% are black (approximately 43,000,000)

With $14-trillion:

  • Every black man, woman and child would receive $325,581
  • Every man, woman and child would contribute $42,424 (thank God for Excel or I’d be counting fingers and toes for a month)

Of course, a significant portion would go toward the bureaucracy administering the program, as always.

This is in addition to several trillion dollars that has been added to a $20+ trillion deficit that existed prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Tax revenues are way down from record unemployment, but let’s spend an additional $14-trillion.

More Americans died in the Civil War (War Between the States for Mullet and the Texans) than all other US wars combined. Others made sacrifices – tens of thousands of women who never had the opportunity to marry and have children. The US population was only about 32 million in 1865. But, this is all forgotten. What about reparations for the families of those killed in the fighting?

There’s talk of racial dialogue, but those who are calling for dialogue really want a monologue.

As it always does, the left has taken control of the conversation because it controls the media and education. There is never any mention of taking responsibility, crime statistics which illustrate black-on-black crime and that black-on-white crime is far more prevalent than white-on-black crime.

    no, the world hasn’t gone completely mad…it has ALWAYS been completely mad, or nearly so.

    then your second question: can the United States (or even western civilization) be saved? really is the better question.

    I believe the answer is “NO!”

    Because they Western civilization (outside the U.S.) has refused to defend itself for decades…and not the U.S. has joined that insanity.

    Tucker aired several incidents last night of Americans KNEELING on command to “apologize for being White”. Even the lunatics of the Left probably couldn’t have imagined that a few years ago.

    Even when my knees were better I wouldn’t have kneeled…so it is utterly out of the question now.

    Woe be the idiot who asks me to.

    Last month: all gov’t, big corporations, etc print messages that we “are all in this together” and that they are “there for us”.

    This month: all the usual suspects put out messages that they are against racial injustice.

    Here in CA, we have an opportunity to renounce Prop 209 (race neutrality) and make it legal to judge people by the color of their skin ACA-5, in November.
    Stay tuned.

    From a fundraising email by True The Vote–

    Here are just a few examples of what we saw unfold this week:

    In Baltimore, a design error in mailed out ballots resulted in disappearing returns on election night and widespread concerns from candidates… and now, elections staff will be manually duplicating all vote-by-mail ballots. Maryland’s Lieutenant Governor is calling on the state’s elections director to resign. [1]

    In Pennsylvania, election judges in Lebanon County refused to provide provisional ballots to voters who had received ballots in the mail but had not completed and returned them… contrary to state election law. Nursing home residents in Delaware County – who are quarantined due to COVID-19 – never received their mail-in ballots. Judges in Buck County and Delaware County extended deadlines for counting votes, which will delay determining the nominees in four highly competitive congressional districts. [2] [3]

    In Rhode Island, voters didn’t receive their mail-in ballots in time to be mailed back… election officials are still at work counting ballots, and will be for several more days. [4]

    In Washington, D.C., the city opened just 20 polling places instead of the usual 143. This resulted in voters standing in line for hours after the polls closed. Thousands of requested absentee ballots were not delivered in time, or at all… and one city council member began encouraging people to vote via email. [5]

    #WalkAway and a few influential voices in the Black community are standing up.

    Many businesses owned by Jews in LA (plus, you would guess, NYC also) have been torched by Dem allies who want to shut down Police Depts everywhere. I’ve seen multiple articles spreading the news. Here’s one.
    https://www.unz.com/isteve/more-on-cristalnacht-in-west-hollywood/

    Finally, there is the lawsuit against Ivy League schools who want to exclude qualified Asian kids, plus here in CA the Dems are trying gut Prop 209 (no discrimination based on race or gender) via ACA-5. I am already seeing emails on ACA-5 from people in the Chinese community spreading awareness of how awful it will be for their high-school grad kids trying to get into a good school. This is truly a hot-button issue for Asian parents.

    Again, we hear this every election: “maybe THIS is the election where the tide turns”. So, no celebration before we see the votes. The Dems HAVE grown to be even more awful this cycle though. It could happen

    35 – Been hearing about that a related holographic storage since ~2000, not much has come from it, at least not commercially. I did see recently that at least in the lab they found an interesting way to do long-term storage in a plex-glass like substrate, can fit like 10tb on a postage stamp a few mm think. It’s WORM but for long term archive storage it sounds promising. Think of like a lab slide storing 50tb and the space savings. Only problem the gear to do the writing will run about a million at the moment – even so that’s like chump change to some of the orgs that could make use of it.

    “we have no idea what surprises the left has between now and November 3.”
    … indeed the coup continues unabated.
