Real Good Quote

If the crowd is overwhelmingly white, it's not because the Tea Party has a problem with people of color. It's because so many people of color have a problem with limited government.

-Mark Davis

Thanx and a tip o' the hat to James Fulford on the VDARE blog.

That is all.

Why I Oppose Cap-and-Trade

Chris Roach has an excellent post detailing why reducing greenhouse gas emissions the way the government wants us to is likely to be unrealistic and why better approaches are needed, even if global warming is a serious issue.

Meanwhile, I am certain the the environmentalists are still simply confident that somehow if we ban the use of carbon, solar energy will suddenly become cheap and efficient, or else they welcome a return to horse-and-buggy days.

That is all.

French Not Cheese-Eating Surrender Monkeys But Pork-Eating Resistance Pigs (The Title Makes Sense in Context)

The VDARE blog has an interesting video of French people standing up against their dispossession in their own country.

That is all.

How Rude of Them to Be Alive When No One Wants Them

Apparently, in an attempt to prevent them from becoming too numberous and taking over, Jordan is rescinding the citizenship of some of its Palestinian people, although the excuse is that it will somehow prevent Israel from preventing them from returning to their homeland when that pesky conflict is finally resolved (any day now).

This does actually point out one of the big problems in the idea of "transfer" as a solution. Who is going to take them, or do you give a damn if the Palestinians topple the current Jordanian government.

It seems to me that no one wants the Palestinians, which leads to the inevitable question of how are they going to be dealt with? I have a feeling that the general feelin throughout the entire Middle East is probably something along the lines of Lord Farquaad's famous statement about Shrek,

Now really, it's rude enough being alive when no one wants you.

Is there any solution?

Of course, there is for the U.S. Stay out of the whole business. This one's not our problem.

That is all.

A Nation of Cowards

Based on recent events, I have decided that on balance, it would be a good thing to add "Nation of Cowards" to my blogroll. It takes a comment by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and turns it around (making it more accurate in the process).

I don't necessarily agree with everything the blogger does (and sometimes he is a little more impolite than I would be, especially in his "moments of racial levity"), but overall I think that his voice is worth hearing.

That is all.

Ban Him from Wal*Mart, Don't Prosecute Him

If the kid who made the stupid declaration in Wal*Mart gets prosecuted, it is a grave injustice.

Don't get me wrong. What he did is despicablke, and Wal*Mart is within its rights to ban him from its property.

But if he wasn't using a non-public phone, I don't see him having done anything illegal.

Wal*Mart has every right to say "go away and don't come back,"* but to get thelaw involved in this way is stupid.

That is all.

*But if the situation were reversed, does anyone think that they would be allowed to ban a black kid for saying things like this against white people?

Trent Lott- Fired for Being Right (About Strom Thurmond)?

According to Charles Mills, he was.

I find the idea that racial tensions were actually thawing in the South prior to the Brown v. Board decision to be interesting,

On the other hand, I've heard it claimed that vagrancy laws were implemented in the postbellum period largely to re-enslave blacks. Whether or to what extent this was still true in the period immediately preceding the Brown decision I do not know, however. In any case, I suspect that Mills probably would underemphasize the role of such things, while traditional historical interpretation would overemphasize them, underemphasize progress that blacks were making prior to federal intervention, and overemphasize the positive impact on black civil rights that federal intervention had.

(This is, of course because the current zeitgeist is in favor of centralized intervention to secure their goals - federal when necessary, but preferably global).

That is all.
