The Good

The Bad

The Ugly

Gallup polling from last year showed African Americans’ views of black-white relations are still down from a high of 70 percent “good” in 2001, but they had recovered from just a few years ago, when that number hit a low of 58 percent.

In the new Pew poll in particular, the sample size for African Americans is small — only about 150 people — so it’s tough to draw too many hard and fast conclusions. But the 12-point shifts on blacks’ feelings about their relationships with police and whites are outside the margin of error.

And I wonder why this is?

* Knock out games? Well considering that it is mostly black on white. So why be upset if you are the hitter?
* They burn down stores then rail against the lack of shopping options.
* A `kid` strong arms a clerk stealing cigars, then gets shot for his `effort`. Yet the white guy is the one on trial.
* The forces of the State now are aligned against a police dept in Ferguson. Regardless of the outcome pretty much the entire force will need to be replaced.

Many blacks have a clue. Its what got them out of the ‘hood. But some others have decided that the government dole is sufficient. Yet I would offer those that avail themselves of the dole down in the gut know its neither a successful strategy nor going to satisfy the bling bling drive.

A case of angst come violence. All for naught.

    It would be interesting to see a breakdown (educated blacks vs. welfare blacks) on the chart you posted.

    Ferguson is not about a black child’s life being cut short.

    Ferguson is about turnout in November.

    After a long night of making love, the guy notices a photo of another man, on the woman’s nightstand by the bed. He begins to worry.

    ‘Is this your husband?’ he nervously asks.

    ‘No, silly,’ she replies, snuggling up to him.

    ‘Your boyfriend, then?’ he continues.

    ‘No, not at all,’ she says, nibbling away at his ear.
    ‘Is it your dad or your brother?’ he inquires, hoping to be reassured.

    ‘No, no, no! You are so hot when you’re jealous!’ she answers.

    ‘Well, who in the hell is he, then?’ he demands.
    She whispers in his ear

    ‘That’s me before the surgery.’ …

    Fifty-one years ago, Herman James, a North Carolina mountain man, was drafted by the Army. On his first day in basic training, the Army issued him a comb. That afternoon the Army barber sheared off all his hair. On his second day, the Army issued Herman a toothbrush. That afternoon the Army dentist yanked seven of his teeth. On the third day, the Army issued him a jock strap The Army has been looking for Herman for 51 years.

    Obama’s strategy since he started running for President has been “divide and conquer.” The strategy has been very successful (primarily because of MSM support).

    Download this file — ftp://ftp.cpuid.com/hwmonitor/hwmonitor_1.25-setup.exe

    Its HWMonitor, a hardware monitor tool. Once you have it running check if your CPU temp if over 95 degrees. If it is your brick for the laptop might be the problem. Unplug it. Run the laptop till it runs out of juice. Keep monitoring the cpu temp. If it drops over time then it probably is the brick.

    If not. Go look at your bios settings. Some laptops have fan control options. Check them.

    Hope it helps.

    “More and more people realize how useless government is: check out this story about a mother who inadvertently locked her baby in her car. In Florida. In the summer. Though she called 911, she received little help. A passer-by saved the little boy.

    But that’s not all: scan the readers’ comments. Many of them share similar instances, and in each such one that I saw, it was private organizations and people, such as tow-truck operators, AAA, and the ubiquitous bystanders, who come to the rescue, not the cops or 911.

    Meanwhile, other folks have progressed beyond recognizing government’s uselessness to condemning it for its harm–and helping its victims. From Joe Lee comes a link about a British millionaire who “help[s] pregnant women flee UK to avoid babies taken into care“–

    Ian Josephs has spent over £30,000 helping 200 to avoid having their newborns taken away by social services. He pays for their fares to a new life and offers them free legal advice, even paying for lawyers in some cases. Around 50 have fled to Ireland on his money while another 150 went to France, Spain and Italy.

    Forced adoption opponent Mr Josephs, who runs a language business and has a law degree, has defended his decision to fund their escape, despite many already having children in care [sic for “despite the State’s having already kidnapped their other children”]. He said: “Social services have moved away from giving families support and are now too quick to take children away.

    “I know what I do is controversial. People ask how I know the people I’ve helped don’t go on to do something wicked, but my reply is that even killers are entitled to lawyers. These woman are entitled to a fair chance to keep their children if they have not been convicted of any crime of cruelty and aren’t on drink or drugs.”

    I’d remove those last stipulations — allowing the callous, incompetent thugs Leviathan employs to determine any parent’s suitability is the height of absurd criminality — but nonetheless let us wildly applaud this generous humanitarian.

    The State: continuing to prove itself the enemy of all mankind even as its prey awakens to that fact.”

    HP what though? sure the model is 35302f (google don’t turn up such a device in existence)

    I’m assuming you’re not seeing heavy cpu spike that are causing it… and it’s not “only” doing this while FF is open.

    First thing I do is try cleaning it – ie compressed air on all the fan blades and heat sinks, vents, etc, if it’s laptop it’ll be a bit of a pain in the arse vs desktop case but you’d be surprised how much gunk can get up in even a laptop’s vents over the years.

    “The last city on that roster of those “blessed” with an MRAP, Preston, is a tranquil community of about 5,000 people near the Utah border where crime is practically unknown. Last October I interviewed Chief Ken Geddes, who was prickly and defensive, invoking the Sandy Hook massacre and the ubiquitous threat of terrorism to justify the acquisition of a military assault vehicle.

    For its part, the Statesman couldn’t persuade Chief Geddes to speak on the record about his department’s expensive new toy — for which a use will have to be found very soon, if Chief Geddes wants to keep it.

    Analyst Noel Brinkerhoff points out that the Pentagon’s 1033 program specifies that “any participating law enforcement agency must use its equipment within one year of receiving it. If they don’t, they have to give it up.”

    If a police department wants combat gear, it can get it, and once the department has that gear, it will use it. In fact, the Feds will require that they invent a “need” where none exists. This helps explain why routine police calls are now treated as potential military engagements.”

    “The madness generated by the war-mentality was captured brilliantly today by one of the best observers of our modern and tragic scene. David Stockman points out the real madness — that of the warmongers and their propagandists — as he tells us of the US plan to bomb both ISIS in Syria AND the Assad government in Syria!

    Yesterday I posted the following tweet here on LRC Blog because I thought it was the most hilarious critique of US policy I had seen in some time:

    White House policy on Syria: “What if we, like, just bombed _everyone_?”

    “Big government statists eschew the power of the free market. Without government regulation of business, they’ll tell you, there would be large business monopolies. Never mind that there never has been a monopoly that did not become so without government interference in the marketplace.

    Following Burger King Worldwide’s announcement that it would acquire Ontario-based Tim Hortons — a coffee and doughnut chain — and move the new company’s headquarters to Canada in order to take advantage of that country’s lower corporate tax rate, we learned a little more about the hypocrisy of big government statists.

    First, the deal is being largely financed by Warren Buffett. Buffet, you may recall, is Barack Obama’s poster child for the White House’s “tax fairness” campaign……

    “Fair share” is one of the favorite code words of the elites, though no one can explain what “fair share” means. And although the elites want to make sure you pay your fair share, they don’t hesitate to take advantage of any and all loopholes granted them — as in Obama has investments in the Cayman Islands.”

    “In order to ensure corporations like Burger King pay their “fair share,” statist Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) repeated his call for a global minimum tax rate. Sherrod wants to lower the U.S. corporate tax rate (a great idea) but establish a global minimum tax rate (a very bad one).

    Why is it a bad one?

    It is an attack on the free market and another step toward One World Government.”

    I was driving through northern Illinois last night listening to a call-in
    Program on WGN in Chicago. People were calling in all upset about the
    Goat’s head sent to Cubs owner Tom Ricketts at Wrigley Field.

    Some guy called in from Indiana and said, “Why are you all so upset
    cause someone sent a goat’s head to Wrigley Field? Aren’t you the guys
    that sent a horse’s ass to the White House”?

    A man and a woman who had never met
    before, but who were both married to
    other people, found themselves assigned
    To the same sleeping room on a
    transcontinental train.

    Though initially embarrassed and uneasy
    over sharing a room, they were both very
    tired and fell asleep quickly, he in the
    upper berth and she in the lower.

    At 1:00 AM, the man leaned down and
    gently woke the woman saying, ‘Ma’am,
    I’m sorry to bother you, but would you
    be willing to reach into the closet to get
    me a second blanket? I’m awfully cold.’

    ‘I have a better idea,’ she replied, ‘Just for
    tonight, let’s pretend that we’re married’.

    ‘Wow! That’s a great idea!’ he exclaimed.

    ‘Good,’ she replied, ‘Get your own
    damned blanket.’

    After a moment of silence, he farted.
