Roundup

This is what happens when perverts write elementary school text books . . .  and more perverts buy them to use in government schools.  This is one of those surreal posts where you feel odd quoting it on a blog for adults, yet the content is only part of what they teach little kids.  This is government schools teaching 10 year olds to masturbate, and more.  This is what you get when you let Planned Parenthood-types into government schools.  People who kill babies for a living have no problem doing all sorts of perverted things.

A lot of people got upset when they shared Walsh’s post on Facebook and one of the images from the book appeared on their page.  I hope they all caught the irony: They were embarrassed to have it on a page geared to older teens and adults, yet the Left insists on forcing it on 10 yr. olds. 

This is clear cut, folks. Yes, I’m Mr. Absolutist. You’re absolutely right about that, and here’s an absolute statement: it is a deeply depraved and disordered understanding of childhood and sexuality that leads one to believe that such a book belongs on a public school reading list.

Imagine a stranger came up to your son on the playground and said: “Hey little boy, if you touch yourself it’ll feel good and tingly. I drew some cartoons of kids masturbating. Wanna see?” What would you do? Would you shake his hand and thank him for the helpful sex ed lesson? Or would you call the cops and see to it that this sicko has to alert the neighbors every time he changes his address?

There is no discernible distinction to be drawn between the creep on the playground and the public school official who approves this kind of material for children. This is child abuse, plain as day.

Fewer farms, richer farmers, and why agriculture subsidies are inexcusableThere is no good reason for the government to be involved here.  It just results in more corporate welfare and rich politicians.

Once upon a time, there were all sorts of politically quaint justifications for why the federal government needed to dish out billions of dollars worth of tender, lovin’ subsidy care to the agriculture sector. Farmers need all of the direct payouts, and the tax credits, and the crop insurance, and the trade barriers that Congress so generously offers them, you see, because food is super important, and the federal government really needs to step in and ensure that we have a stable food supply. Plus, farming is a really tough and risky job, and who’s going to help all of those small, struggling family farmers that will hit hard times in down years?

All of which was and is utter baloney, of course. The federal government doesn’t feel the need to ensure that we have a stable supply of door knobs or washing machines, and yet somehow, we manage to get along just fine — and in fact, the federal government inflicts a lot of damaging free-market distortion onto the agriculture industry that subsidizes overproduction. As for those small, struggling family farmers we’re meant to visualize when we think of agriculture? Farming today is a largely corporate endeavor, and the vast majority of subsidies go to the biggest growers of mostly corn, soy, cotton, rice, and wheat. Those smaller farms growing the organic chard and strawberries the government tells us we’re supposed to be eating? Not so much.

Salon Editorial Calls for More Black on White Violence

The disconnect between factual reality and the make-believe world inhabited by the liberal elite has reached the point of total psychosis. As Gateway Pundit notes:

Blacks are 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against whites then vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit a robbery.

But that’s only down here in the real world. The situation is very different as viewed from the Castle. At liberal Salon, Brittney Cooper is calling for a violent response to the violence — that is, to the man bites dog type violence inflicted on blacks by whites. She hypes the hardly typical case of Michael Dunn, a guy with a screw loose who blew his top during an argument over loud rap and shot a black kid.

. . . Add that to the killing of Trayvon Martin in self-defense and Brittney has enough for a call for vengeance:

How much more are black people in this country supposed to take?

“I’m a deep believer in and practitioner of nonviolence.”

She wants blacks to take vengeance against whites who didn’t kill blacks?  Wow, good thing she is a deep believer in and practitioner of nonviolence. I can only imagine what she’d do if she wasn’t.  And I can only imagine the reaction if a white journalist called for vengeance on blacks because they are 39 times more likely to commit violence against whites.

“The reason why I will kill you is you are infidels…we must establish Islam in this country”Muslims leaders aren’t that subtle.  It isn’t like they haven’t warned us over and over.  Yet useful idiots and false teachers continue to pretend they are the “religion of peace.”  Yes, some are peaceful – and thank God for disobedient Muslims like that! – but their core teachings are very clear.

“We Jama’atu Ahlissunnah Lidda’awati Wal Jihad are fighting Christians wherever we meet them and those who believe in democracy, those who pursue Western education wherever we meet them. By Allah, we will kill whoever practices Democracy.

First Presbyterian of Houston about to break from PCUSA over gay sinGood for them!  If your church supports “same-sex marriage” it isn’t a real church.

Review: Liberal Fascism by Jonah Goldberg I wish Leftists would read this book — or at least read this review! They like to blame corporations and capitalists for everything, never realizing how their love of big government makes increased lobbying and corruption inevitable.

I also enjoyed the book for its discussion of Fascist economics; the author makes an excellent observation of how government regulation of business paradoxically brings in more business intrusion into government via lobbyists.  The explosive growth of lobby industry in WashingtonD.C. is a good example of that.  Can we blame the business if they are out to protect their interests when every regulation for an industry will impact them?  The unintended consequence of this is that big businesses in their industry have advantage for these regulations so as to kill smaller competitors with more regulations and need for more employees (and specialists such as lawyers, accountants, etc) to follow throu
gh with the regulation.  What you end up producing is a fascist-like relationship of government and businesses.  The irony of government intruding in business is that it brings every business interests into the affair of politics, either to go against a competitor or defend against a competitor.

Joe Carter nailed it on Facebook.  They mocked us when we said we needed a Constitutional marriage amendment.  “Oh, you don’t need that, the states can make their own laws.”  Then they cheered when activist judges overturned those state laws.  They said that schools wouldn’t force LGBTQX propaganda on kids, then cheered when they did.  And so on.  Satan doesn’t mind being inconsistent.

Just five years ago we had assurances from LGBTQ activists that no one would be forced to violate their religious beliefs or conscience because of same-sex marriage. Now, we even have evangelical Christians saying that refusing to serve and support same-sex weddings is akin to Jim Crow laws. Some have even claimed that to say it is an issue of conscience is “unbiblical” and “illogical” since “Jesus would bake a cake for a same-sex wedding.”
Christians are getting tired of being told they are ridiculous scare mongers when they claim something is bound to happen, only to be later told they are bigots for not supporting the very claim they were told was never going to happen in the first place.

Five Lessons Your First Job Can Teach You About Your Entire Career – Good advice.

Ann Coulter on the minimum wage issue and illegal immigration – great points to use when people say how swell Australia because of their $14/hr. minimum wage (“try immigrating there.”).  Don’t miss the last paragraph.  The Republican leadership disgusts me in their inability to communicate on these issues. 

Or, as the White House puts it on its website promoting an increase in the minimum wage, “Today, the real value of the minimum wage has fallen by nearly one-third since its peak in 1968.”

Why were wages so high until 1968? Because that’s when Teddy Kennedy’s 1965 Immigration Act kicked in, bringing in about a million immigrants a year, almost 90 percent of them unskilled workers from the Third World.

Our immigration policies massively redistribute wealth from the poorest Americans to the richest. It’s a basic law of economics that when the supply goes up, the price goes down. More workers means the price of their labor plummets.

Unfortunately, politicians spend a lot more time talking to rich employers than to working-class Americans. And the rich apparently have an insatiable appetite for cheap labor.

Having artificially created a glut of low-wage workers, now Democrats want to artificially raise their wages.

It’s win-win-win-win-win for Democrats.

— Employees who get a higher minimum wage are grateful to the Democrats.

— Employees who lose their jobs because of the minimum wage hike are grateful to the Democrats for generous government handouts.

— Poor immigrants who need government benefits are grateful to the Democrats.

— American businesses enjoying the deluge of cheap labor are grateful to the Democrats.

— Democratic politicians guaranteed re-election by virtue of ethnic bloc voting are grateful to the Democrats.

Do Republicans have any principles at all? Why isn’t the GOP demanding an end to this dump of unskilled workers/Democratic voters on the country?

Democrats show how much they love the poor by importing a million more of them to America each year. But then they prevent the last batch of poor immigrants from getting decent, well-paying jobs by bringing in another million poor people the next year.

You want a higher minimum wage? Turn off the spigot of low-wage workers pouring in to the U.S. and it will rise on its own through the iron law of supply and demand.

In response to the Democrats’ minimum wage proposal, Republicans should introduce a bill ending both legal and illegal immigration until the minimum wage rises naturally to $14 an hour.

Australia has a $15 minimum wage for adults — more than twice the U.S. minimum wage. Meanwhile, their official unemployment rate is lower than ours: 6 percent compared to 6.6 percent in the U.S. — and that’s with a lousy $7.25 minimum wage.

Sound good? Try immigrating there. Australia has some of the most restrictive immigration policies in the world. Their approach to immigration is to admit only people who will be good for Australia. (Weird!) Applicants are evaluated on a point system that gives preference to youth, English proficiency, education and skill level.

    1. As it is logical to assume one of a particular race will most likely have more association with others of one’s own race, it is also logical to assume that one will be screwed more often by one of one’s own race. So if we accept that premise, and then eliminate all such cases, what is left and which race is then most likely to mess with members of any other? I’m not looking to start a race war, but to deny facts and evidence in order to prevent it does not help in addressing whatever is behind it.

      It is also helpful to remember that the point is that between the races, the stats show more black on white crime than the reverse. Calls to rise up against the white man are based on falsehoods regarding who is doing what to whom.

      1. The fact is you have more to worry about from your own race the falsehood is painting blacks as the ones who commit most crimes that simply isn’t the case a call for violence against anybody is wrong but without a doubt there is a huge culture of racism that transcends the statistics of violence against white people its the portrayal of blacks in the media and the history of mistreatment this country has of blacks. However you want the evidence here it is ; according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, for the period of 1980 to 2008, a majority (53.3 percent) of gang homicides were committed by White offenders, and the majority of gang homicide victims (56.5 percent) were White, according to statistics from the Justice Department, White men are more likely to kill than any other racial group.When the Bureau of Justice Statistics collected homicidal rates from 1980 to 2008, they found that compared to Blacks, Whites were more likely to kill children, the elderly, family members, and their significant others. They commit more sex-related crimes, gang related crimes, and are more likely to kill at their places of employment. So the next time a black person and a white person are walking towards you , don’t tense up because you see my dark skin, you are more likely to be harmed by you fair skinned blue-eyed counter part. That’s the real denial of evidence its the portrayal of blacks as the racial and criminal blight on society which isn’t the truth. The truth of the matter is that there are bad black people and good black people, just as there are good white people and bad white people. These statistics are never reported and based on media coverage we are left feeling as if blacks commit all crimes an that simply isn’t the truth.

  3. Mrs. Mickle, your argument reminds me of the pro-homosexual argument saying that heterosexuals are more likely to sexually abuse minors than homosexuals are. Leaving aside how they twist definitions (men having sex with boys are somehow not considered “homosexual”), they fail to take into account the percentage of the population that the various sub-groups make up. Homosexuals make up far less than 10% of the population, but even if it were 10%, if they commit more than 10% of sexual abuse against minors, then they are statistically more dangerous than heterosexuals. For the sake of argument, we’ll assume that homosexuals are 10% of the population and heterosexuals are 90%. If both groups are equally likely to sexually abuse children, then the rate of homosexual child sex abuse should be 10% and heterosexual child sex abuse should be 90% of all child sex abuse cases. If the rate is more like 25% vs. 75% (what I think is more accurate), then homosexuals are abusing at least 2.5x more than they statistically should based on their population size. [Considering that all non-heterosexual people together make up less than 5% of the population, and probably more like 3% or less, being guilty of 25% of sex crimes against children is more like TEN TIMES the statistical rate.]

    With that in mind, let’s look at your statements of white people being the majority criminals and gang members, etc. I went to the Bureau of Justice to look at their Crime Statistics from 1980-2008 for homicide [I could probably find gang membership and anything else you quoted as well, but we’ll stick with homicide to make it short], and see if you’re correct in your assertion that “White men are more likely to kill than any other racial group”. From the PDF available at this link [http://www.bjs.gov/index.cfm?ty=pbdetail&iid=2221] from the Bureau of Justice is the following at page 3:

    Based on available data from 1980 to 2008—
     Blacks were disproportionately represented as both homicide
    victims and offenders. The victimization rate for blacks (27.8
    per 100,000) was 6 times higher than the rate for whites (4.5 per
    100,000). The offending rate for blacks (34.4 per 100,000) was almost
    8 times higher than the rate for whites (4.5 per 100,000) (table 1).

    In fact, the PDF on the same page said that whites committed only 45% of all homicides, rather than 54%, so a minority rather than a majority, thus they did NOT kill at a higher NUMBER than black people did, and considering that whites are still a “majority” in this country, if over half the population commits less than half of the homicides, they are statistically less likely to be homicidal than they should be, and kill at a lower RATE than black people.

    The PDF specifically says that the “Offender’s” race is 45.3% white, 52.5% black, and 2.2% other (including Asians, American Indians, Pacific Islanders, etc.). According to the U.S. Census [http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/00000.html], non-Hispanic whites make up 63% of the total U.S. population; Hispanics make up 16.9% (there is no category for “Hispanic” in the Bureau of Justice stats); “whites” as a broader category is 77.9%; while blacks make up only 13.1% of the population. So, 13% of the population commits 52.5% of the murders [actually, it could be more, if one person killed multiple people] while 78% of the population (whites including Hispanics) commit 45.3% of the murders. The PDF says blacks are 8x more likely to commit a homicide than whites are.

    1. Mrs. Mickle,

      First, for the sake of clarity, please give greater importance to punctuation in your responses. I don’t want to misunderstand you.

      Secondly, I don’t refer to stats to suggest anything untoward about any given person, regardless of race. But we cannot dismiss stats, either. And we must do all we can to make sure we are not abusing stats, misreporting or misrepresenting them.

      I, personally, don’t really care about race. I don’t care about epithets and slurs. I don’t care about any of that. If I “tense up” when approached by a black man, it would likely be when it is late, dark and the dude is dressed like a gansta-wanna-be. But a heavily tatted white dude trying to look like one of the Sons of Anarchy would provoke a similar reaction. So race is irrelevant.

      1. Kathy, Felony murder and drug related homicides are the highest percentages of the homicidal crimes that blacks commit the rate was 59.9% for felony murder and 65.6% for drug related homicides, However according to table 7 in the PDF the statistics I stated were factual whites take the top spots in all those other categories. The point I was trying to make was and I see you missed it was that ALL RACES COMMIT CRIMES, so the portrayal as blacks as the criminal blight on society wasn’t factual.

      2. I hate to assume that you are using punctuation to be condescending, however as I am not writing a term paper you will just have to suffer through my ” poor punctuation”. As you say we can’t ignore stats and instead of the constant portrayal of blacks as the criminal blight on society, lets be honest and say that there are crimes that all races are more likely to commit. But that is not how it is portrayed by the media, its always blacks are more likely too…. But the point is that’s not the whole story there needs to be more transparency and honesty. And as a black Christian woman that cares about ” slurs” and epithets”, I am offended when I go on sites like moon battery and read all those racist comments. And the interesting thing is that the people commenting are allegedly one of two things, Christian or conservative. It brings to mind the history of slavery that the same ” God fearing people”, could mistreat other humans because they considered them sub-human, even though the bible was clear about how to treat slaves. I would like to repeat that my point was that all races commit crimes and instead of painting one race as worse off than the other, lets do two things;1. see if we can repair the gap that has existed between our races with honest and open dialogue about race,2. get past all this together so we can combat the socialist agenda being pushed on all races in our society. I am sorry to read that you don’t care about race, because we are all supposed to be our brothers keepers and when one is being wronged we are all supposed to care. My husband has so much Irish in his blood, he has all these tiny red hairs in his beard, I say that to say this I care about not only what goes on in the black community , but the white community has well as we are all human beings.

  4. No one has said or even implied that blacks are the only people to commit crimes; obviously, evil exists in the hearts of all men, and all are equally capable of committing crimes. However, while your intended point was that all people commit crimes, what you said is that white people are more likely to commit crimes than black people, and that’s not true. As I pointed out, per 100,000 people of any given race, black people are more likely to commit crimes than whites. It’s not enough to say that any time the percentage of white-committed murders rises above 50% of the total rate, that that means that white people are as likely as or even more likely than black people to commit crimes — when black people make up only about 13% of the population, but commit any more than 13% of the crimes, then they are disproportionately more likely to be criminals. And if whites (and hispanics) make up 77% of the population, any time they commit any more than 77% of the crimes, then they are more likely to commit crimes, but if their rate drops below 77%, then they are less likely than other races to commit crimes. If 13% of the population commits 39% of the crimes, they are 3x more likely per capita (per person) to be a criminal than others not of that demographic.

    As it stands, Table 7 of that PDF breaks down the various types of murder (relationship: i.e., against family members, elders, children; circumstances: i.e., at work, drug-related, etc.; and weapon used). From that, based on whites making up 77% and blacks making up 13% of the total population, we see that while whites may commit more than 50% of homicides in certain circumstances, blacks commit almost half and sometimes more than half of the homicides — but even when they drop below 50%, that’s nothing to cheer about, because if they make up only 13% of the population, they’re committing some 3-4x as many murders!

    Now, I try to be equally fearful and friendly about everyone, regardless of skin color. [And, btw, that’s what Marshal was referring to, when he said he race was irrelevant, and that he was as likely to get scared of a white person dressed as a thug as a black person dressed as a thug.] I take the Bible literally, including the story of Adam and the story of Noah, which means that all humans (regardless of skin color) descended from an original single pair of humans created some 6,000 years ago; and that about 4,500 years ago, the human population was reduced to 8 people (4 couples, likely 3 fertile couples), and from those 8 people, all humans now living are descended. Which means that we’re all cousins.

    But leaving that aside, any time somebody urges people of one race to commit crimes against people of another race, just because they are members of that other race, then I think members of the targeted race have a justifiable reason to have an elevated fear of the first race. It’s true that 84% of white people were killed by other whites; but that means that 16% were not — and this was without much or any special provocation by black leaders or talking heads to “get back at white folks” just for being white. Which means that if the rate of black-on-white homicide increases, then even if whites had little or no reason to fear blacks before, then they now have some reason to fear. BUT THAT WILL BE THE FAULT OF THE CRIMINALS WHO COMMITTED THE CRIMES AND THOSE WHO URGED THEM TO COMMIT CRIMES.

    I wholeheartedly wish that black people committed no more than their fair share of crimes, or even less than that. But since they commit more than their fair share, place the blame for the fear others feel at the feet of the black criminals.

    And with regards to punctuation — it wasn’t condescending. Using periods and commas and other punctuation just help to keep things clear, and keeps sentences from running together. Often, things can be read in different ways depending on the punctuation used.

    1. Indeed, Mrs. Mickle. It is not I who suffers from your bad punctuation. It is you as you may not be understood as you intend to be. My suggestion was not meant to be a slight or condescension, but merely a helpful tip.

      But I insist I do not care about race. This does not mean I do not care about people not of my own race. It means concerning one’s self with race is not the way we as a culture will ever overcome racial issues. What’s more, I do not see the struggles of anyone in terms of race, but in simply in terms of people struggling and in need. Even if one struggling is a victim of racism, I still see it as one person suffering at the hands of another, the reason for which is not nearly as important as the fact that one person suffers unjustifiably and it needs to stop. In other words, it wouldn’t matter to me if you were victimized by a white racist or a black gang-banger. I just see you being victimized and want to see your suffering end and the perpetrator punished.

      As to slurs and epithets, we all grew up learning about sticks and stones. Yet as adults, we dispense with that lesson over some prideful notion of how others must treat us. This pride gives power to words that have no true power of their own. Call me anything you like, if your intent is to attack me with words. See what it gets you in terms of satisfaction. If the mere uttering of some epithet is cathartic, you might be satisfied. If it is meant to get a rise out of me, you’ll be less satisfied. I simply don’t care about slurs and epithets. What is a slur anyway, but another name for what any of us is? If the proper name doesn’t hurt, why should any variation or alternative appellation? (If the proper name does hurt, perhaps counseling is in order.) We can never rise above issues of race if we allow slurs and epithets more power than they deserve. Let it go. At worst, such words, together with the tone and intention behind their use, let’s you know the character of the person using them.

Words carry weight and we can’t ignore their meanings as well as the feeling that they will cause others to feel. I am not going to feel suicidal if someone calls me the n-word but I am going to be angry and rightfully so. There will always be racism that’s a fact but again to paint one race as the criminal blight on society is wrong. I agree with you about seeing human suffering, however when I or my children are feeling the sting of racism its very hard to ignore.

    2. Kathy, I did not say that white commit more crimes I said that whites commit more crimes against each other AND TO SAY THAT BLACKS SHOULD BE FEARED AGAIN IS A FALSEHOOD BECAUSE AS A WHITE PERSON YOU ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE KILLED BY SOMEONE OF YOUR OWN RACE. So that fear is base less because again 84% of all whites are murdered by other whites so instead of fearing blacks indeed you should fear those of your own race. And these crimes don’t even account for white collar crime that whites are more likely to commit. Again these statistics point out that races are more likely to commit certain types of crime. THAT MEANS BLACKS AND WHITES COMMIT MORE OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF CRIMES. As regard to the article she wasn’t calling for violence she was saying in the face of irrational fear why should black people always have to be the rational ones, when the fear that people claim to feel is the irrational part not black people.

  5. Mrs. Mickle, I think we’re basically arguing past each other — talking about different things, so let’s change the subject.

    I think the thing that bothers me most about the article is that it’s just a complaint, with no suggestions about how to deal with the problem, and a seeming veiled threat with the comment, “How much more are we supposed to take?” That typically denotes violence is coming, or at least is justifiable. She says she supports non-violence, but doesn’t actually write about anything but violence as possible outcomes.

    I do agree with the original author when she points out that part of the problem was that blacks were basically herded into ghettos by racists — but I would point out that this essentially happened by liberal social programs. Before “The War on Poverty” and increased Welfare (which rewarded single motherhood and fatherless homes), most children were born to married parents, though the rate of illegitimate birth, single parentage and broken homes was higher in black families than in white. Afterward, the rate of single parenting and fatherless homes rose — more so in black families than in white families, but white families are catching up. I remember reading about a study that looked at prison inmates, and while blacks are imprisoned at a greater rate than whites, this study found that the rate was the same IF you looked only at men who came from intact families and/or lived with their father while growing up, compared to men who were raised without their father. So blacks and whites raised by their fathers were incarcerated at the same rates, and blacks and whites not raised by their fathers were incarcerated at the same rates; but so many more blacks were not raised by their fathers than whites, that that accounted for the difference in rates of incarceration.

    Fathers are important to their children. A return to intact families is necessary if this country is ever to get back on track.

  6. Mrs. Mickle,

    My point regarding slurs is that the weight they carry is a result of your response to them. It doesn’t matter what words a hater uses. If someone is acting polite, does the worst word you can imagine hurt less? I would say the answer is no if the use of the word is to hurt you. Thus, it only hurts you if you let it. By the same token, someone could be as mean as hell, never use one single slur or profanity and hurt you just a well based on what they say. But again, it only hurts if you let it. Words carry no weight by themselves. YOUR reaction to epithets hurled your way is what gives them that weight. Let ’em rant. If that’s all they do, no worries.
