There are More White People on Welfare Than The Total Black Population

The Truth about Welfare

Watch any talk show, conservative news show or read a liberal newspaper, and they all give the same message, “Black people are on welfare and have been for generations.” In fact one presidential campaign made it their double-talk slogan, “no more generations of welfare recipients”, “stop people living off the public dole.” Republicans and Democrats alike all jumped on the bandwagon. News casters picked up on the slogan and asked the question, “who are we talking about?” They received no direct answer but were given the old, nod and wink “you know who we’re talking about.”

This lie that Blacks live off of welfare has been spread so far and wide and repeated over and over and over so much that common ignorant people have come to accept it as fact. In fact, even Black people themselves have accepted as fact. You have Black comedians accepting it as fact and then assuming it to be fact, make up jokes with that as the basis of their punchline.

The fact is, white people are a majority of the welfare recipients. In fact, white people make up more than Blacks and Latinos put together on welfare. In fact, there are more white people on welfare than there exist Black people in America. Let me repeat, there are more white people on welfare than there are Black folks.

Of all the welfare recipients, only 22% of them are Black. Yes, that’s 1/5th of the welfare recipients are Black. That, my friend, is a small number. White people make up nearly 50% of all welfare recipients.

So how did this racist stereotype come about that Blacks are on welfare? Or, I should ask, how did people agree with it when there is such a huge white population on welfare?

One word: Ignorance.

If you are ignorant of the facts, people can tell you anything and get away with it. If you are ignorant of the facts, people can take your money and you not even know it is being taken. If you are ignorant of the rules, people can throw you in jail and you agree to it.

Oh those are some outrageous statements aren’t they? Guess what? People have been doing that in this country for over 2 centuries. It has gone full speed in the past 40 years. Now the media is in on the game, so all bets are off. If people have an agenda to push, it goes all out like gangbusters because the media can loop the message day and night, every hour, on the hour. You cannot compete with the truth, when the media tells you a lie. If the media wanted to reverse the color of grass and the sky, don’t you know people would go along with it? If the media looped, “new grass color discovered, blue not green; new sky color discovered, green not blue.” The media has done it in the past.

For instance, marijuana is a plant. It has thousands of uses, such as: making paper; making clothes; making rope; making polymers. In fact, the plant is so great that every material it makes is better than any other material on the planet currently. Hemp is the name of the plant. Hemp ropes are far stronger than silk ropes. Hemp paper is 3 times better than wood paper; lasts longer without fading; and doesn’t take toxic chemicals to make it into paper. Hemp clothing doesn’t destroy the earth to create; they are far easier to wash; don’t get dirty as easily; they repel stains. In fact hemp makes hundreds of medical remedies that pharmaceutical companies cannot duplicate. A man wanted to push forward his investment in wood paper. He made the hemp plant seem diabolical, so he enlisted the media. Within a year, hemp was made illegal and people were afraid to go near it and thought it was satanic.

Do you see the power of the media? If they can change people’s opinion about a plant, of course they can change and manipulate social perceptions about facts that aren’t real. Who cares if someone is racist? The problem is the media going along with the agenda and pushing it forward. And, it’s not just one source of media. They all do the same thing.

Think back for one second. The latest news story was plastered on every channel, local and national centers. And, they always have the same facts. No matter how independent your local station claims to be, they jump on the same bandwagon everyone else does.

Let’s look for a second at a huge national story: the Laci Peterson case. Here’s a case where a Latina went missing, was 7 months pregnant and who’s body was found decapitated and various parts of her arms and legs were missing;and her body washed ashore nearly a year later. In the media, they pointed to Scott Peterson. They found out he had extramarital affairs. Surely if he was cheating on his wife he must have murdered her. But wait! I turn your attention to another national story: the Evelyn Hernandez case. Here’s a case where a Latina went missing, was 7 months pregnant and who’s body was found decapitated and various parts of her arms and legs were missing;and her body washed ashore 3 months later. Woah!

Did you just have deja vu? Everyone knows Scott Peterson murdered his wife right? Uh, did he also murder Evelyn Hernandez? What’s strange is, we actually know where Scott Peterson was the whole time. And yet, they still convicted him. In fact, they just assumed he did it.

The reality of the two cases were so out of this world, that no one wanted to actually speak it allowed. So, the media just convicted poor “horny devil” Scott Peterson, and we all just nodded and looked the other way. What’s the reality you ask? Well since you asked. In the south west there are known and documented cases of witchcraft and occult secret societies. These cults perform heinous sacrifices. The police have documented cases of it. But, you don’t hear it in the news for some reason. The media keeps it hush hush. So the cults are the truth, but a regular man is on death row. While he did cheat on his wife, it doesn’t mean he killed her, nor does it justify him being put to death. Regardless of the feminist organizations that wish it so, it is not right.

This is a case of the media gone wild. And, we sit back and take it. I could pin point case after case, news story after news story that are false, bigoted, and passing on misinformation. Misinformation is the biggest and largest crime that is going on.

If you’ve been reading my blog, I’ve already pointed out that:

  • Black unwed fathers spend more time and money with their children than any other unwed fathers.
  • Blacks pay their debts on time and more often than other races.
  • Blacks have a much lower divorce rate than other races.
  • Blacks have less out of wedlock children than other races.
  • And now, Blacks are the least people to be on welfare than other races.

All of these stereotypes the news and shows put forth, media. But, we all accept it as fact. We think because we saw it on T.V. it must be true. When in fact, the opposite is true. Could it be that people are basing life decisions off of lies? Could it be politicians are making laws based on lies? Could it be the Federal Government is making policies based on lies?

You’re damn skippy they are.

Jeremiah Wright: We Killed Innocent People in Iraq

Iraq Veterans Against the War

It has really come full circle. The chickens have come home to roost. I’m not talking about the CIA term “blowback”, where actions our secret service does to other countries comes back to haunt us. I am talking about our very open and direct actions which are crimes against humanity. Have you noticed that since 9/11 that there aren’t so many reports about the “war” in Iraq? Why? Because, the latest news is rather ugly. The reports of what really is going on in Iraq have come home and they aren’t pretty. Take for instance the reports about Fallujah. It was in Fallujah that the U.S. armed forced committed a massacre of over a million civilians. One my protest that the armed forces had no idea they were innocent civilians, but it was shown they did know. In fact it was shown that during the massacre it became customary to trick civilians to come out of their homes and then slaughter them in the street. It became customary to storm a house, drag the citizens out, and humiliate the father in front of the family. A practice known to scar the entire family for life, since they treat each other with the highest respect over there.

Blowback is the espionage term for the violent, unintended consequences of a covert operation that are suffered by the civil population of the aggressor government. To the civilians suffering it, the blowback typically manifests itself as “random” acts of political violence without a discernible, direct cause; because the public—in whose name the intelligence agency acted—are ignorant of the effected secret attacks that provoked revenge (counter-attack) against them.

Not only did reports come in, but documentaries of the wholesale slaughter of innocent civilians have been made. Some are quite popular as well, selling millions of copies. These documentaries showed armed forces using incendiary bombs on civilians homes; beating, maiming and slaughtering children; raping female children; and burning and collapsing huge apartment buildings known to have thousands of people inside. These documentaries show armed forces using new Napalm, which burns the flesh off of live people. They show chemical warfare use. And, it all comes back to “against innocent civilians.”

I heard some incredible number, in the millions, being quoted about the number of Iraqis who have died at the hands of the U.S. in this “war.” Notice I keep saying “war.” But, the fact is, Iraq has not been “declared” to be a war by Congress, as prescribed in our Constitution.

In the United States, Congress which makes the rules for the military has the power under the Constitution to “declare War,” however there is no prescribed legal format for what a War declaration will look like in the US Constitution or by law. Declarations have the force of law and are intended to be executed by a Commander in Chief when called into actual service. The last time United States passed a bill with the title “Declaration of War” was in 1942, against Romania. Since then, the United States has used the term “Authorization to use Military Force” as in the case against Iraq in 2003. Many times, such as the US Invasion of Haiti in 1993, decisions for military engagements were made by US presidents, without formal approval by Congress, based on UN Security Council resolutions that did not declare UN or its members at war. This has been seen also as a subterfuge to allow the United States to dispense with the international laws of war, for example by declaring hostages as criminals rather than as prisoners of war.

So we see that Iraq is not a war at all. So what really is going on in Iraq? Well, it seems to be a lot of unnecessary slaughter going on over there. Unnecessary, for one simple fact: Iraq has never posed a threat to the U.S.. Iraq was, in fact, our ally all the way up to the day we invaded. Even after the Kuwait ordeal we were still on friendly terms with Iraq. In fact, we put Saddam Hussein in power. We did that.

It is My Duty to Speak Out

You may try and construct a chain of command and make an organization where one does not and cannot think for one’s self. However, as humans, invariably there will be a few humans who will be slightly less a moron than the other people you have recruited and figure out that what they are being told to do is: against their own beliefs; against God; against humanity.

It is one thing to be ordered to go shoot at people that are shooting at you. It is another thing to be ordered to shoot soccer moms; drop huge, gargantuan bombs on city centers filled with milkmen, candlestick makers, maids, candy salesmen, shoe repairmen. It is one thing to give the order and then to have the wife of the candlestick maker crying inconsolably over her husband asking why this is happening. It is one thing to give the order and then see children crawling on the ground with a leg and arm blown off screaming for their mother. It is one thing to give the order and then hear a baby crying only to be silenced by a gunshot to the head followed by a sick wet sound of its blood running down the crib.

This is not what America wants. This is not what the world wants. If George Bush were to do this to us inside the United States, U.N. forces would have arrested him and congress and the top military brass and tried them for war crimes and genocide. Right now though the U.N. is mired in red tape over this “war” that isn’t a “war”.

Jeremiah Wright Thrown Under the Bus

It was a fact that Jeremiah Wright, minister of President Obama’s former church was thrown under the bus for political expediency. All the stations looped Reverend Wright saying something ghastly over and over and over.

Fox News and others kept showing a sound bite of Jeremiah Wright saying “America’s Chickens are Coming Home to Roost”. That is the only sound bite they showed of the sermon. But in actuality Reverend Wright was quoting U.S. Ambassador Edward Peck, a retired, “white”, career U.S. diplomat who served 32-years in the U.S. Foreign Service and was chief of the U.S. mission to Iraq under Jimmy Carter — hardly the black-rage image with which Wright has been stigmatized.

Obama instead of explaining that Jeremiah Wright was quoting a U.S. ambassador and that what both learned men were saying was correct, instead took the low road to save his political campaign. Reverend Wright was then left with the reputation of being some Black objectionary, militant, racist, when in fact he was and is the opposite.

Now we come to the real story. We come to the story that cannot be denied any longer. We cannot deny it, because the story is now coming from our very troops. The U.S. is slaughtering people in Iraq for no good reason. More and more veterans of the war are speaking out and sounding the same bell that the learned Reverend Jeremiah Wright [also a former Marine] sounded in his now infamous sermon.

Iraq Veterans Against the War is a group of veterans who have organized to speak out against this horrible war. They have organized together so that no one could quiet them individually and so that Americans can really know what our military ambassadors are doing in our good name. It is a shame they had to organize in such a way, but this is the reality of the situation. If they speak out individually, they won’t be heard; they get life threats; they get black balled out of various things; they get denied things owed to them.

No longer can we just sit at the dinner table and laugh at Reverend Jeremiah Wright, AND by proxy Ambassador Edward Peck, but now we have to pay attention because our sons and daughters are coming home saying how much truth both men were telling.

The obvious question is: Does Obama know? Actually most of these atrocities did not happen on his watch. However, they are still going on, so yes he must know. He needs to bring the troops home immediately.

I know why they are over there. While, politically it’s quite a grey area, the execution of it, has and is horrible. I say grey area, because had I been in Bush’s shoes I may have wanted to remove Sadam myself. But, that’s the bully way of doing things, isn’t it? I have a brain and would have found some other way to get Saddam to agree with me. So the entire war was and is unnecessary.

You might ask what is it I know about the war? It is quite simple once you hear it.

My dates might be off by some months, but the facts are very similar. The current world currency is the U.S. dollar (USD), right? Everyone knows that. One of the chief and most important things that is traded in the USD is oil. Well in mid 2,000 Saddam Hussein, bless his heart, declared that Iraq would now move his oil exports to the Euro. He completely removed the USD from his countries oil exports entirely. It was a brilliant move and would shore up Iraqs wealth immensely since the dollar was and is a completely fiat currency that is nearly worthless. Bush and friends were sitting on their thumbs wondering what to do to get Saddam back into trading oil with dollars. If they didn’t do something soon, the entire middle east would follow the lead of Saddam.

This is what is known as “Petrodollar Warfare.”

Well what does that mean? It means we would have to pay the real price of oil finally. And more than likely either our economy would collapse over night or we would go back to producing stuff that the entire world wants to buy. Instead of going that route, Bush declared Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, which Hanz Blick squarely said he didn’t, MONTHS before, even wrote a book about it, and invaded Iraq. Within days of the invasion, they removed the government of Iraq, set another one in its place, and repealed the declaration to trade oil in Euros instead of dollars.

That’s what this war is about. Not oil, not greed, not any other weird or sinister thing. The rest of the middle east is kind of on the fence about this whole Iraq thing. On the one hand they realy did not like Saddam, remember we put him in power. On the other hand, what he was doing was interesting by leaving the dollar trade in oil.

So Why are We Still in Iraq?

That my frend is the billion dollar question. And, I’m going to give you the answer, and it is not going to make any damn sense to you.

The reason we are still in Iraq is because American companies are making too much damn money to leave.

That’s right. This is now, not about security, nor terrorism, nor pride, nor democracy. This is about huge, super huge companies, that are in control of the government that is bleeding us and Iraq dry. They have got their teeth firmly latched onto our necks and are not going to let go. They literally make a million dollars each month washing the clothes of the military over there. In fact, they made it a punishable rule that servicemen cannot wash their own clothes. They are drinking every last drop of blood we have and our politicians are letting them.


I wonder when they were briefing Obama, after he won, about these companies and the war, what his reaction was. I wonder if the was shocked, amazed or disgusted. Can you imagine win the seat to the most powerful position in the world and then being told that basically you have no power and that those days of the president issuing decrees and fighting congress are long gone. But, the show lingers on.

Let me leave you with this quote:

“the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today — my own government,” and that “America was founded on genocide, and a nation that is founded on genocide is destructive.” – Dr. Martin Luther King

Anime Rant: Why I Hate the Writers of Naruto Punking Orochimaru

Creating the Fall Guy

In America, because Americans are all children and have the brains of infants, Hollywood tests and tests and tests and come up with the same result, “the bad guy can never win.” Regardless that congress rapes us daily. Regardless that Wall Street pillages the land of tax payer dollars and we take it, day in and day out, we can never be presented with even the hint of reality in a movie. Test groups can’t even tolerate the bad guy even getting the upper hand during the movie. They are so childlike that it is enough that you say “this is the bad guy” and then proceed with the movie.

In Asia it is no problem to present a movie where the bad guy walks away scott free. However their reality is quite different. Over there bad guys don’t get away with it. So to see a bad guy win, IS the fantasy. Over here, we are surrounded by incompetent police incompetent leaders, incompetent military. They lock up regular citizens and give the excuse that they broke the law. The actuality is that 75% of the time the law was an infraction that is so inconsequential that locking a citizen up for it, IS the crime. But, they do that to hide their own incompetence, their own inability to stop real crime.

For 50 years they have claimed they needed to lock up 20 times the Americans they used to lock up, all in the name of our safety. When in fact 90% of those they locked up were no evil to begin with and the real criminals are free to do whatever they please. The police know they can’t get to them. The criminals know the police are incompetent, and no one can change that.

Knowing this then, why can’t Americans tolerate seeing a bad guy win? Because they are children and can’t handle the truth. The people they pay to keep them safe have failed and they do not want to be reminded of it. And, the powers that be will not show it to them and avoid it, al all costs.

So what’s my anime rant about? In Naruto they presented the ultimate bad guy as Orochimaruo. Orochimaru was the most powerful ninja. He knew every jutsu there ever was. He even invented his own. He even knew the forbidden jutsu. He used to belong to the all powerful band of outlaw nijas known as the Akatsuki. In fact he was so beyond them that he left them and truely went on his own. He was so powerful that he attacked a country, with his army, all by himself, something normally a whole country would have to do, to even be assured of success. He also was and is one of the 3 legendary ninja in all of the world of Naruto.

With all of that said why oh why would they all of a sudden make him look like a chump? I mean, the guy can bring people back to life. The guy discovered the immortality jutsu. His own retainer even said he could literally take over the entire Naruto world.

Now my problem isn’t that the author wants to all of a sudden go with a different bad guy. My problem is, don’t build up Orochimaru to not just be a powerful bad guy, but build him up to be a god and then make the new bad guy just have an illusion power.

The problem is they already explained in the series that one illusion user cannot ensnare another illusion user. One would have to be superiorly more powerful to best another illusion user. Now, under normal circumstances that wouldn’t be impossible, but we’re talking about Orochimaru vs and Uchiha.

Yes, it’s great that the Uchiha have an illusion power, but Orochimaru is now on his 3rd body. The other 2 legendary ninja are also facing the ravages of time. The female legendary ninja, now the leader of the Hidden Leaf Village, has been shown to use potions to keep herself looking young well beyond her years. So all 3 of them have lived probably 2 generations of a normal human, if not 3. Also, Orochimaru put an entire country under his illusions. He defeated ninja leaders of multiple countries, all at the same time, single handedly. So excuse me if I think it’s ridiculous that some 20 year old and his younger brother, 14 years old, put the legendary ninja Orochimaru under an illusion. It’s like Hitler or George W Bush fighting Jesus. I mean, they’re both bad guys and super powerful, but … come on, it’s Jesus we’re talking about.

I thought the Japanese wouldn’t fall for the “the bad guy loses” shtick. First of all we’re talking a world filled with nothing but ninjas. None of them are “good guys” in any objective sense. There are countless ways to write out and all powerful character anyway. They could simply say he got bored of the world and went somewhere else. Isn’t that what gurus do anyway?

Just stop it with the “Bram Stoker’s all powerful Dracula is killed by a toothpick from some 3rd rate cop that can barely read”. The world doesn’t work like that and don’t piss on my leg and tell me it’s raining.

Woman Body Checks the Pope and his Cardinal

The “Unbalanced Woman in Red”

Today Christmas Eve as the pope, Benedict XVI, proceeded up the isle to deliver his Christmas Mass, an “unbalanced woman” jumped the guard rail and lunged at the pope. She knocked him down as well as Cardinal Roger Etchegaray. Pope Benedict, 82 got back to his feet immediately doing a ninja flip. However, poor Cardinal Etchegaray was rushed to the emergency room. They immediately took the lady into custody. They found no evil intent.

Pope Benendict went on to deliver mass as usual. Oh, scratch that. Mass was delivered 2 hours earlier than usual, i.e. 12a.m., at 10 p.m.. This was to allow the pope to rest a bit before his hectic schedule of flying around the world in the pope mobile delivering presents to boys and girls, said a Vatican spokesperson.

[all the facts of this story are true, although there were some slight embellishments.]

The Rights of the Father: David Goldman Wants His Son

Goldman May Have an Early Christmas Present

The supreme court of Brazil has handed custody of Sean Goldman, now 9 years old, over to his father David Goldman. The two were seen boarding a plane at 9 am this morning, Christmas eve.

If you are unfamiliar with the case, here are the facts. David Goldman and his wife,Bruna, had a child Sean Goldman. The two got divorced. Here is where everything gets ugly. The wife went back to her homeland, Brazil, and remarried there, to a powerful attorney, João Paulo Lins e Silva. She took Sean Goldman with her, abducting him, thinking never to return. The lawyer-husband did adopt Sean. The wife died in childbirth to a new child of the lawyer-husband.[karma?] David Goldman sued for custody of Sean Goldman. Actually, David Goldman had been fighting to get Sean Back since 2004 since the divorce and child abduction. The family of the now widowed husband, the Silvas, refused to give custody of the child.

The supreme court of Brazil stepped in, since it is an international case. The United States and Brazil are signatures to the Hague Convention. This was a clear case of international abduction. They had first decided to keep the boy in Brazil while they made a determination and whether or not the boy would be allowed to testify before a court of law.

I believe that had this case been in America, the courts would have immediately granted custody to the blood father, since he can never waive his rights. The father, David Goldman made plea after plea to return his son back to him. For the Brazilian family to refuse custody, I feel, is shameful. Regardless of the fondness they developed for him, Sean Goldman, it doesn’t take away the fact that his biological father was stripped of 5 years of his son’s life and had been fighting to get him back the entire time. They should have gladly given the son back. Shame on the daughter for kidnapping the child away from the father.

Well, this story has a happy ending. God bless David Goldman and his son Sean Goldman.

Conspiracy: Is There a Commodities Bubble?

The Gold Bubble That Never Was

Ask any nutcase investor or investment group [not mentioning any names], if there is a gold bubble or commodities bubble and they will talk your ear off telling you point by point why there is one. Some how I believe they don’t know what the word bubble means. Oh, don’t get me wrong, they are really clear on the artificial inflation i.e. conspiracy part of it, but they fail to realize the part where it has to be widespread and popular.

So everyone is on the same page, let’s define this bubble word:

Bubble: An economic bubble (sometimes referred to as a speculative bubble, a market bubble, a price bubble, a financial bubble, or a speculative mania) is “trade in high volumes at prices that are considerably at variance with intrinsic values”. Economic bubbles are generally considered to have a negative impact on the economy because they tend to cause misallocation of resources into non-optimal uses. In addition, the crash which usually follows an economic bubble can destroy a large amount of wealth and cause continuing economic malaise.

Now let me add to that, there has to be a popular and widespread sentiment to invest in the item to even qualify it as a bubble. Ergo, you can’t have a “bubble” if only 100 people are investing in it. A bubble has to be damn near nationwide – a housing “bubble” / a dollar “bubble”.

Ok with that definition let’s return back to our question: Is there a gold bubble, is there a commodities bubble. Clearly, the answer is no. In fact Jim Rogers, Peter Schiff and many, many far more intelligent investors than I have said gold should be trading at $2,000 / oz. A foreign investor said gold should be trading at $5,000 / oz USD. I have it on good authority that gold has been surpressed for nearly 30 years. So if you take that into account, the $5,000 / oz USD does not seem outrageous at all.

One thing Jim Rogers did say however, is that do not lay all your eggs in the gold basket. He said to spread it out through many commodities. And, as I said in a prior post that high end manufactured goods depend on commodities, if that market collapses, so will the high end markets.

Note that China has told their citizens to buy gold. Note that India did also, and are forking over major cash to buy gold. Could there be something on the horizon that they are privvy too that we are not?

Jim Cramer: Selling Snake Oil Stocks

Open Season on Jim Cramer Bashing

Everyone is quick to jump on the bandwagon of trashing Jim Cramer of Mad Money. We have the Huffington post trashing him. We have Zero Sum… I mean Zero Hedge trashing him. And then we have the marriage of the two, Huffington post trashing him and quoting Zero Hedge trashing him. But, why would I write a post about it, unless somehow they are wrong. You knew it was coming right?

The latest trash of Jim Cramer was about a call that he actually did not make. According to Huffington Post, Jim Cramer said to buy Citigroup. Citigroup fell and so Huffington Post pointed the finger saying, “see he’s wrong na na ni na na.” But, if you go to the video that they tried to prove that he was wrong, he did not say buy Citigroup, as a day trade. He said to buy the offering and hold it for 2 to 3 years.

The fact is, if you beleive in Jim Cramer and bought Citigroup, when it fell, you’d buy more, not think of it as a loss. Because you’d be under the mind to buy it at the best price. If the realization of the profit is going to come in 2 or 3 years, a fluctuation in a day or two won’t matter.

Also I guarantee that if Jim Cramer says buy it on CNBC on national T.V. the powers that be would want to crush the common investor and dump the stock to take profits off of such a popular recommendation. I know that sounds a bit conspiracy theorist, but then we are talking about Zero Hedge, you’re used to it, if you read their posts.

As I’ve said from the beginning when I first laid eyes on Jim Cramer, anyone that would seriously take investment advice off of a T.V. show is indeed Mad themselves. Only a fool would watch a T.V. show, that is clearly geared for entertainment, and invest according to its edicts. I love Jim Cramer, but I would not take investment advice from him. Regardless of his history and past work. In fact CNBC and MSNBC has done more of a diservice to investing than a billion Bernie Madoffs.

Sisters, Close Your Legs

MTV Ain’t All That

[This article is not for the faint of heart, religious nutcase, purity driven fruit basket or those who don’t have the sense God gave a chigger. If you would rather just look the other way and pretend this doesn’t exist, stop reading now and you can be happier than a dead pig in sunshine.]

Turn on the T.V. today, open up a colorful magazine, read a best selling book, and they all say one thing.


Oh snap. Yeah, I said it. South park even did an episode on it. One of the few episodes where their preachy messages were actually on point. People would rather see you dead if you’re a dumb whore. Now, some of you out there might get offended.

MTV has had a slew of whores on display, from Tila Tequila on down. Now, I’m not saying Tila sleeps around, but to young impressionable kids, the editing comes across on the show as be a whore and you can be rich and famous.

Not to be outdone VH1 came up with their whore of choice: New York from the Flavor Flav – “Flavor of Love”. Now, I’m not saying New York is a whore, but to young impressionable kids, the editing comes across on the show as be a whore and you can be rich and famous.

Now let’s get down to brass tacks. All these shows, showing 1 person “imaginably” having sex with about 30 people in 3 weeks is saying one thing: be a whore, it’s cool.

You don’t see a show that says “Close your legs”, you’ll get a real man that way. Woah! Ask your grandma. Apparently your mama didn’t teach you nothing. Ask your gramgram. She’ll tell you right. “Close your legs” Being a whore, never got a woman anywhere.

People might look down on Christians, but if you follow the bible and it says “close your legs” and get married, they might just be on to something.

How are you going to land a husband, a strong Black brother, with your legs gapped open. That’s an invitation for disaster. Any Tom, Harry or DICK will “come” along and do what they please. And Leave! Woah! Did you read that? Yes, and leave!

If you’re walking along and find a penny on the ground, just as soon as you get good and ready you’ll throw that penny away. Now logically, that penny is worth something right? But, you didn’t risk anything getting that penny. And, it had very little value to you.

The same goes for you gapping your legs open. If your legs are gapped open, they are just as cheap as that free penny you picked up off the ground. No one would even think about sticking around for anything else. And, with so many gapped open legs, you can go from gap to gap to gap to gap. Tell me that ain’t true.

“My baby daddy left me”

First of all, you gapped open your legs. If your mama didn’t teach you nothing, let me end the confusion right here. You gapping your legs open, not only leads to diseases, possible death and other nasty things, but it also leads to having babies. If you are a cheap whore, who gives a care about you. Who gives a care if you’re pregnant or not. That’s on you.

Harsh? No no, sister girl, them’s the facts. If you’re a cheap whore and you get pregnant, expect nothing but pain and misery.

“oh if my daughter came home pregnant, I’d still love her”

Seriously, what the hell? If my daughter came home pregnant… wait. My daughter ain’t’ gonna come home pregnant. She’d know I’d kill her on the spot. And, no daughter of mine would be a cheap whore.

It’s a bunch of hogwash to say you’d still love your pregnant whore of a daughter. A father would be so ashamed.

Expect misery, if you’re a cheap whore. Expect not to get a real man, if you’re a cheap whore. I am not pulling any punches.

“black men are dead beat fathers”

No, no they aren’t. A study was done that shows Black fathers are THE most likely to spend time and quality time with their children. In fact, a Black man is more apt to take the child away from the cheap whore.

  • if you have sex with someone other than your husband, you’re a cheap whore
  • if you’re not married and you have sex, you’re a cheap whore
  • if you think sex is for fun, you’re a cheap whore

I’m sure plenty of you reading this will reject this. Just because the news parades cheap whores in from of you day and night, doesn’t make it right. Right is as right does. It is right to wait to get married to have sex. It is right to save yourself before marriage. It is right to be a virgin before marriage. It is right to be chaste before marriage.

That is what’s right. Being a cheap whore is not right.

Wanna solve half the Black community problems? Live right. Live and upright life. Live a righteous life.

Let me ask you: how many problems would you have if you did not have sex before marriage. Imagine you didn’t change anything else about yourself?

Now don’t say “if I don’t have sex before marriage, I’ll be alone.” CLUE PHONE! 70% of all Black women are ALREADY alone. So obviously the sex isn’t the problem.

If you completely wiped out of your mind having sex before marriage, you’d be concentrating on things that have nothing to do with sex. Am I right or am I right?

  • you’d concentrate on school
  • you’d concentrate on cooking
  • you’d concentrate on cleaning
  • you’d concentrate on exercising
  • you’d concentrate on learning new things
  • you’d concentrate on being a better person

If you had no fear of having a child out of wedlock, you’d be so free that you would go do all sorts of things.

The reality is, the girl has to protect herself. The reality is, the woman has to protect herself. If the woman protects herself, who cares what a man does. You’re protected. If you protected yourself, I bet half your relationship arguments and angers and frustrations would disappear overnight. The reality is, you have to look out for yourself.

This whole debate about Black woman / Black man would also nearly be over. If the Black woman protected herself and did not have sex before marriage, she could work on herself, her self esteem. Sisters could concentrate on finding a good Black man. Sisters could demand ALL Black men, to be better. Sisters could demand Black boys to stop their pants from sagging, shape up and fly right. Sisters could build up their Black men.


It doesn’t get much clearer than that. Even God leaves you alone to do for yourself. Oh he stops Satan from throwing flaming spears through your heart, but for the most part he leaves you all by yourself.

And, if God leaves you by yourself, that should tell you, you gotta do for yourself.


I write this and other articles out of love. I write this from the depths of my heart. I would not see you in pain, suffering and misery. I think sex is a tiny, unimportant and small thing you could correct.

I also hold the media responsible from changing America from a basically nice, friendly country, to one where the things we shunned are now celebrated: unwed mothers; divorcees; homosexuals. You cannot move humanity forward with these. You can argue all you want about those 3 things, but let’s look at this: if everyone were those 3 things, the human race would die off. Everyone knows that children born without 2 parents aren’t “normal”. Some children cope with it better than others, while some don’t cope at all and have problems. Would you take a chance with your child being one of the ones that couldn’t’ cope? Divorcees automatically means a broken up home. That goes right back to the single moms or dads. Back to the children that can’t cope. Finally, homosexuality! If everyone were homosexual we could not keep the race alive. Trust me on this one. Even if everyone had artificially insemination, humans die fast as hell. It literally would take every possible person who could get pregnant to be artificially inseminated to keep the human race alive. Today’s medicine can’t keep up with the death rate. I’m not talking about hating on homosexuals, I’m talking logistics. Even the spartans, who were all trained to be homosexual, forced their soldiers to come have sex with the women, because they were dying off. And, that’s not fantasy, that’s real humans dying off due to homosexuality.

I write this as if I were your father, and this is what I would want you to know. I would want you to protect yourself as a young Black woman. I would want you to be a lady above all else. I would want you to marry a nice Black man who would want to have a family with you. I would want to send you down the isle to be married.

The media does not want you to see that. They want to sell you papers and t.v., so they show the most bazaar things imaginable. They had shows, showing prostitutes having sex. Why would you watch a channel that did that? We all know what prostitutes do, but do we need to watch that? Is that something worth watching on any normal level?

And, although it’s a double standard, a loose woman is always looked down upon. It might not be fair, but it doesn’t make it right to be a loose woman. Even the very word “loose” means you don’t have your stuff together, means you can’t control yourself, means are not proper. And, it means you’re something “good” men automatically stay away from. Now that’s the part that should concern you. A good man would automatically count you out, if you’re a loose woman. A loose woman has NO value to a good man.

You might cry about not having a good man, but you are creating your own problem.

Market Crash by Jobless Recovery

Economists Scramble to Avoid Saying the “D” word, Depression

While panic ridden stories sell papers from Maine to Baja California, every newspaper always tries to pain a rosy picture about the economy. These days it is all about spin. And to avoid saying the D word, depression, they try to spin the jobless numbers in the best light possible, short of lying. The headline numbers understate the severity of the problem. They also obscure an even grimmer fact: Unless there is more government support, it will take several years of robust economic growth to recoup the jobs that have been lost.

The unemployment rate includes only jobless people who have looked for work in the past four weeks. The underemployment rate — which also includes jobless workers who have not recently looked for work and part-timers who need full-time work — reached 17.5 percent in October. And the long-term unemployment rate — the share of the unemployed population out of work for more than six months — also continues to set records. It is now 35.6 percent.

“At no time in post-World War II America has it been more difficult to find a job, to plan for the future, or — for tens of millions of Americans — to merely get by.”

The official job-loss data also fail to take note of 2.8 million additional jobs needed to absorb new workers who have joined the labor force during the recession. When those missing jobs are added to the official total, the economy comes up short by 10.1 million jobs.

A jobless recovery or jobless growth is a phrase used by economists, especially in the United States, to describe the recovery from a recession which does not produce strong growth in employment.

“It’s a good picture compared to where we were, which was just a free fall,” said Dean Baker, a director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research in Washington. “But compared to anything else, this is just a horrible report. The rate of decline is slowing, but it’s not going to stop. We’re likely on a path toward more than 10 percent unemployment.”

Unemployment surged from 9.8 percent in September to 10.2% last month, its highest level since 1983. At the same time, the economy lost 190,000 more jobs. That means employers have eliminated 7.3 million positions since the recession began in December 2007.

Gerald Celente – the economists are coming up with this new line, jobless recovery. How about almost pregnant? There is no such thing. You cannot have a jobless recovery in an economy where 2/3rds or more 72% is consumer based.

After years of borrowing against soaring home values, tapping credit cards and harvesting stock market winnings to spend in excess of their incomes, millions of households are being forced to conserve. That limits consumer spending, which makes up 70 percent of the nation’s economy. And that makes businesses that might otherwise hire and expand more inclined to hunker down.

“I don’t think businesses will hire back anytime soon,” said Allen Sinai, chief global economist at Decision Economics. “Companies are rewarded by the stock markets for not hiring and keeping their costs down. We will see another jobless recovery.”

Additionally, the U.S. Labor Department survey of companies doesn’t count the self-employed and undercounts employees of small businesses. So the economic picture could be even more dire, as small businesses account for about 60% of the nation’s jobs. Adding to the demand decrease associated with the recession, small businesses have been crimped further by banks tightening credit not willing to lend.

“The strongest growth in high-end services is usually propelled by growth in tangible industries, such as energy, agriculture or manufacturing. When those industries tank….high-end services decline with them.”

One economic theory – Okun’s Law, suggests an empirically observed relationship relating unemployment to losses in a country’s production.

The theory posits that for every point above normal that unemployment moves, GDP growth falls by 2%, and vice versa. While not an exact science with plenty of critics, the equation does provide a good quantifiable estimate of the effects of unemployment upon GDP output. Indeed, unemployed workers represent wasted production capability, and it also means less money being spent by consumers. With consumer spending accounting for about 70% of the U.S. GDP, prolonged high unemployment leading to chronic lower spending has the potential to lead to lower growth, more unemployment, beginning a vicious cycle.

The unemployment rate is traditionally characterized as a lagging indicator, and Raymond James just reminded investors that on average, unemployment starts to go down seven months after the trough in the S&P 500 is reached.

Nevertheless, due to the sheer speed and volume of job losses across a wide range of sectors, the unemployment rate should no longer be regarded as a lagging indicator as it does have the potential to influence future market behaviors and outlooks.

Just last month, the OECD noted that growth in the world’s industrialized economies has resumed, but warns that unemployment is set to continue to rise well into 2010.

This is echoed by the testimony before the Senate Democratic Policy Committee this week from Brookings Institution, who warned that even if the economy adds 200,000 jobs a month (a tall order, by the way), it will take seven years to lower the unemployment rate to 5%.

Moreover, even if companies do start re-staffing next spring, the unemployment rate could easily hit 11% from a growing labor force, the return of discouraged workers, the hiring of part-timers instead of the unemployed.

The Federal Reserve Bank should not add to the pain the country is in by dumping dollars into the economy, thus creating inflation. Whole segments of the population could be wiped out. That would spell doom for many small businesses.

Black Women are the Problem with Black Men

Black Women Single

Oprah Winfrey said it on her show, so obviously she and her staff have seen the same research I have: 70% of Black women are single. This has to be devastating news. And, before you ask about other races, I don’t know. And, not to be blunt, I don’t care, for the purpose of this article. I wrote an article, that seems to be quite popular: Top Ten Reasons Black Men Won’t Date / Marry a Black Woman. Invariable the feedback goes along the same lines as the reasons the Black men gave in the national study on the subject: Black women’s pride pushes everyone away, including Black men.

I have concluded, in my wise mind, that it is pride which is destroying the Black woman. At the end of the day, she is alone because she is too proud to be with anyone. Invariably I hear every Black woman, that I know of, speak of other races “I would never date a [ ]”. And, when speaking of Black women, they take it for granted that they would date and marry a Black man, however in the same breath they reject, put-down, emasculate and push away Black men. It is all pride. They are so wrapped up in this lesbian movement, women’s lib, that they forgot to stop and see that they are now alone. They got so caught up in this movement that they forgot that being strong is a man’s arena. Strong and woman does not go together.

“I am a strong Black woman”

“Come on ladies let’s all be strong”

“All women are independent”

“The modern woman is strong”

The very word “lady” rejects the word “strong” by definition. Apparently Black women don’t know the definition of the word “lady”. Just so everyone is crystal clear on the subject, here is the definition of Lady.


  • A well-mannered and considerate woman with high standards of proper behavior.
  • a : a woman of superior social position b : a woman of refinement and gentle manners c : woman, female —often used in a courteous reference or usually in the plural in address
  • A woman regarded as proper and virtuous.
  • A well-behaved young girl.
  • A woman who is the head of a household.
  • A woman, especially when spoken of or to in a polite way.
  • 6. Lady [Chiefly British] A general feminine title of nobility and other rank, specifically:
  • a. Used as the title for the wife or widow of a knight or baronet.
  • b. Used as a form of address for a marchioness, countess, viscountess, baroness, or baronetess.
  • c. Used as a form of address for the wife or widow of a baron.
  • d. Used as a courtesy title for the daughter of a duke, a marquis, or an earl.
  • e. Used as a courtesy title for the wife of a younger son of a duke or marquis.
  • 7. Lady The Virgin Mary. Usually used with Our.

As you can see, you cannot be both a lady and strong. A lady brings completely different cards to the table. There may be many of you who read this and reject it, thinking I’m saying that you cannot be a woman and strong. No no, I am not saying that. You can be a woman. You can be strong. But, no strong female is a lady. Normally strong females are considered lesbians in this society. While you may not enjoy all the fruits of being a lesbian brings, acting like a strong woman will send out mixed signals to the opposite sex. While you might not consider yourself a lesbian, people may perceive you as a lesbian. At the end of the day, perception is as good as reality. If you’re out wrestling bears and hauling wood, no one is going to take the time to ask if you are or are not a lesbian. They are going to make their assumption and go on to the next woman. Do you get my point?

I assume you want a Black man, if you are a Black lady. As such, you do not need to fight tigers and wrestle alligators. No man is attracted to that. Calling yourself a strong woman does not = being a single mother, having your own job, driving your own car, paying for your own house, nor living your life without a man. That has nothing to do with strength.

You have been given this cool-aid and you drank the whole cup. Being smart about finances and not being a fool about raising a child does not make you strong. You have never heard a man describe himself as strong for doing that. In fact, no man describes himself as independent if the does not live at home with his mother or mooch off of others. He just calls himself alive. There is no special label for a man who lives by himself. But, for some reason, someone came along and patted you on the back and told you, you were special because you are living by yourself. And, you fell for it. Living by yourself simply means you are an “adult”. Unless congress had a special session that I haven’t heard about, being an adult is nothing special.

So, I hope we are all on the same page now about being a Black lady. If you reject the idea of being a Black lady, then there is really nothing more I can say to you. Enjoy your loneliness. However, if you do not wish to be “strong” and “independent” [an old maid] then we can talk.

The Pride of Black Women

First, get rid of the pride. There is no pride in being a social outcast. Others might try and spare your feelings, but at 70% of Black women being alone and single, I call a social outcast. A few of you might, “I get me some, so I’m not in that pool.” Sorry to burst your bubble too, but being a whore does not mean you are not single. Single means you have no intentions, options, prospects of being married. If you are married, you’re in the 30%. If you are engaged, you are in the 30%. If you are in a monogamous relationship that you have on good authority, he is going to pop the question, you are in the 30%. Otherwise, you are in the 70%. Dating has never meant you are no longer single. In fact, by strict definition, those who are engaged or already married are the only ones considered not single. So having sex with lots of men does not make you, not single. Besides, being a whore is as empty as you can get in this lifetime. Having someone you can spend your life with, plan your future with, and have children with is where it is at, AS A HUMAN. If your parents did not instill that into and made you see, then let me be the one to tell you. Marriage is not only for everyone, but you are a lost soul without it. My Jewish friend told me that the Jews believe the first commandment from God was in Eden when God said “get married” and “have children”. A commandment! It doesn’t get much more important than that.

Speaking of commandments, let’s look at what some wise sayings have to say about pride. [ I put emphasis on the points I want to make, so if you want to skip the whole thing, just read the red and bold parts. I included the whole chapter so no one would accuse me of putting my own words in]

Proverbs 16

1 To man belong the plans of the heart,
but from the LORD comes the reply of the tongue.

2 All a man’s ways seem innocent to him,
but motives are weighed by the LORD.

3 Commit to the LORD whatever you do,
and your plans will succeed.

4 The LORD works out everything for his own ends—
even the wicked for a day of disaster.

5 The LORD detests all the proud of heart.
Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished.

6 Through love and faithfulness sin is atoned for;
through the fear of the LORD a man avoids evil.

7 When a man’s ways are pleasing to the LORD,
he makes even his enemies live at peace with him.

8 Better a little with righteousness
than much gain with injustice.

9 In his heart a man plans his course,
but the LORD determines his steps.

10 The lips of a king speak as an oracle,
and his mouth should not betray justice.

11 Honest scales and balances are from the LORD;
all the weights in the bag are of his making.

12 Kings detest wrongdoing,
for a throne is established through righteousness.

13 Kings take pleasure in honest lips;
they value a man who speaks the truth.

14 A king’s wrath is a messenger of death,
but a wise man will appease it.

15 When a king’s face brightens, it means life;
his favor is like a rain cloud in spring.

16 How much better to get wisdom than gold,
to choose understanding rather than silver!

17 The highway of the upright avoids evil;
he who guards his way guards his life.

18 Pride goes before destruction,
a haughty spirit before a fall.

19 Better to be lowly in spirit and among the oppressed
than to share plunder with the proud.

20 Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers,
and blessed is he who trusts in the LORD.

21 The wise in heart are called discerning,
and pleasant words promote instruction.

22 Understanding is a fountain of life to those who have it,
but folly brings punishment to fools.

23 A wise man’s heart guides his mouth,
and his lips promote instruction.

24 Pleasant words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

25 There is a way that seems right to a man,
but in the end it leads to death.

26 The laborer’s appetite works for him;
his hunger drives him on.

27 A scoundrel plots evil,
and his speech is like a scorching fire.

28 A perverse man stirs up dissension,
and a gossip separates close friends.

29 A violent man entices his neighbor
and leads him down a path that is not good.

30 He who winks with his eye is plotting perversity;
he who purses his lips is bent on evil.

31 Gray hair is a crown of splendor;
it is attained by a righteous life.

32 Better a patient man than a warrior,
a man who controls his temper than one who takes a city.

33 The lot is cast into the lap,
but its every decision is from the LORD.

This verse is talking about pride and how to approach people. I emphasized some parts where Black women are failing. I’m not going to repeat the verse, but the parts I emphasized clearly illustrate my point.

Black men are saying Black women push them away. It is as simple as that. At the end of the day, Black men are not saying it’s the color of their skin, or their bodies, or their shapes. The Black woman is the one that is destroying the Black relationships.

What You Should Do

I am not saying, go out find you a Black man and date / marry him regardless of his horrible personality. I AM saying get off your high horse, that you got from the dollar swap meet, and

  • build your Black man up instead of tearing him down
  • if he doesn’t have a job, help him look for one
  • if he doesn’t have a car, help him getting a higher paying job so he can afford one
  • if he doesn’t have his own house, help him educate himself and get a better paying job so he can get one

What is ridiculous is, Black women complain about things other races don’t even notice. How many T.V. divorces have you seen where the woman is mad as hell and wants the husband to pay for “her sacrificing her career to put him through school.”


I cannot even count how many times I have seen that on T.V., read it in a magazine or heard it on the radio. And, the debate is never why would she do that, the debate is how much should she get. What you don’t hear, is the millions of other race women that have done that, and stay married and are happier than a dead pig in sunshine.

So Black women think it is a low-lifed man that would need the help of a woman to get ahead in life. Black women think it is beneath them to date a man that doesn’t have a pot to piss in and a window to throw it out of. Black women think you are not a man if you don’t have your own car / house / Rolex. So, when she meets such a Black man, she puts him down and berates him.

Do you honestly think that men pop out with good jobs, cars, houses? No man pops out like that, unless he inherets it. And, if you find a man with that, who didn’t inheret it, think about, there was a time when he didn’t have that.

Most of the richest people on the planet started from nothing. One of the richest men in America, who is now dead, drove a beat up truck, woar plaid shirts and faded, old jeans. Had he been Black, I guarantee Black women would have put him down and rejected him.

This relationship thing is a journey mama, and you gotta decide if you’re going to ride or just stand on the side of the road. Apparently, so many sisters have decided to just sit on the side fo the road. The race is going to whither and die.

Remember, I’mma give it to you straight. I’d rather you burn a little now and be baked, than be raw and go through life lonely.

Climate Change, CO2, Carbon Tax and You

What Should Your Position on Carbon and Climate Change Be?

Before you start digging in your trenches and taking a high road or a low road about carbon footprints, carbon taxes and world climate changes, let’s get one thing out the way. The science! Everyone seems to forget that this entire mess is supposed to be based on science. However, everyone that talks about climate change and starts flying off the handle about carbon taxes or pointing the finger derisively at the SUV driving soccer moms have not taken a look at the science. In fact, Al Gore did not, has not, will not, could care less, would never, forbids and won’t debate with the science.


Because, the science is clear.

There is no science behind carbon climate change.

Before you base your investing dollars on companies that will or will not comply with this climate change scare, you’d better understand the science behind it, before you are swindled out of your money.

The Science Behind Climate Change

World temperature is one of the few areas of science where you have complete clarity. It is not like quantum physics and string theory nor evolution nor the big bang theory. In climatology, in so far as the question of “do humans contribute to global temperature change,” is clear and definite. And, the answer is unanimously “NO!”

There are people out there that would have you believe that driving an SUV is contributing to the global warming. There are people that would have you believe that huge conglomerate pig farms, that produce billions of tons of methane, contribute to global warming. There are people that would have you believe that factories belching out big black soot into the air somehow contribute to global warming. The science is very clear on this: nothing that humans do, contribute one iota to global temperature.

In 2000, when Al Gore lost his bid to become president of the United States, he had less than US$2-million in assets. Neither was Gore known for his financial acumen — annual White House disclosures of his and Tipper Gore’s joint tax filings showed little income beyond the $175,000 he earned as vice-president.

How do we know humans don’t contribute to global warming? There are a lot of humans on the planet. The question is as simple as 4th grade science. Global temperature is predicated by the distance the earth is from the sun. Global temperature is predicated by the solar radiation that hits the planet surface. Global temperature is predicated by atmospheric cloud formations and radiations that shield the earth from solar radiation. That’s it. Nothing else. Nothing more. Nothing less.

We could literally nuke the entire planet and the global temperature would not change one degree. You have to remember, that although it is hot at the equator, it is freezing at the polar caps.

But I saw a Movie About Global Warming

People were taken in by Al Gore’s movie about global warming. The producers of the movie have since come out and admitted there was absolutely no scientific data used in the movie. In fact the movie was produced by a PR firm.

Nobody doubts Gore’s financial acumen now. Within eight years of leaving politics, Gore had reportedly become worth well in excess of US$100-million. Many expect him to become a billionaire through his stakes in a global warming hedge fund, a carbon-offset business, a renewable energy investment business and other global warming related ventures. He is now money manager to institutional investors and the super rich through Generation Investment Management, a firm that he co-founded in 2004.

There is no global warming involved. In fact all scientist will tell you that we are in a cooling off period. Papers all over the planet are reporting the coldest winter in decades. Some scientists have even jumped to the conclusion that we are headed for a new ice age. That’s the big scientific debate right now.

Among Al Gore’s most ambitions involvements is in the Venture Capitalist game where along with John Doerr – who made a killing in the 90’s investing in Netscape, Google and Amazon – and David Blood – who for 18 years ran asset management at Goldman Sacs. Together these three men are managing the Green investment portfolio for Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers – the preeminent venture firm of Silicon Valley.

To put your own mind at rest, simply find a chart that shows you the global temperature during the middle ages. The climate change during the middle ages were 10 times higher than the current climate change. The middle ages was the hottest the planet has been in thousands of years. For those not accustomed to remembering history, the middle ages were when people could not read and sailing was being invented. There was no technology to speak of.

The middle ages The middle ages The middle ages The middle ages The middle age. Find a chart that shows you the temperatures during the middle ages all the way up to the present and you will be astonished.

Carbon tax and investing

Of the investors out there, I think very few fell prey to the global warming scare. For the most part, investors are well educated. For the most part, investors remember that plants need carbon to breath and flourish. For the most part, investors put 2 and 2 together and figured out that co2 is not in fact a noxious gas nor emission. That being said, how should investors tread the murky waters of public ignorance? I don’t believe the senate will ratify cap and trade. With developing nations getting a pass on all of this global warming nonsense, the senate, unlike the house, will come to see that millions of jobs will be lost if cap and trade is passed. At this time, losing millions of jobs is out of the question.

Investors should find companies that stand behind the real science of this global warming mess. Those companies are not going to hamstring themselves in the upcoming debate. Those companies are not going to go under, which is what this is really coming down to. Investing in a company that is suddenly putting out huge expenditures in preparation of cap and trade is a fool’s errand. Those companies will be ripe for take overs and drastically undercapitalized. Being undercapitalized might work for banks, but it doesn’t work for anyone else. Stay away from those companies. You would not want to fall prey to the fiasco that is about to happen.

Quadruple Witching Friday: Is Harry Potter on the Trade Floor

What is Quadruple Witching

Volume and volatility usually is higher than average on quadruple witching occurs. Trading could be volatile since Friday is also quadruple witching — a quarterly event when stock index futures, stock index options, single stock futures and stock options all expire simultaneously on Friday. While quadruple witching sounds rather haunting, it actually refers to your finances. What is the result of quadruple witching expiration? According to the Wall Street Journal, quadruple witching appears to be causing a good amount of stock trading.

With increased activity at the end of the year from quadruple witching, many firms might end the year on a good financial note. There are no more major earnings reports or contract expirations during the last couple of weeks of the year so this is their last opportunity to earn.

“Most people have had their year, good and bad, and they’re sitting on their hands.”

Stocks finished lower Thursday, with the Dow losing 133 points, after Greece received another credit downgrade and the dollar surged against the euro to its highest level since September. The greenback was also supported by the Federal Reserve’s announcement the previous day to leave interest rates unchanged near 0%.

Companies like Nike (NIKE) reported its earnings fell to 76 cents in the second fiscal quarter from 80 cents per share a year earlier. Pepsi (PEP, Fortune 500) announced late Thursday that it will not advertise in this season’s Super Bowl. The beverage giant has advertised the past 23 years, and was among the top four advertisers during last season’s game.

Stocks in Asia finished lower, while European indexes were slightly higher in midday trading.

The dollar was mixed against major international currencies; it was lower against the euro and the pound Friday, but higher versus the yen.

Crude oil for January delivery surged $1.60 to $74.25, while gold for February delivery fell 60 cents to $1,106,80.

Bonds were lower, with the benchmark 10-year bond yield rising to 3.50% from 3.48% late Thursday.

The major currencies were helped by S&P futures and by the cash equity market in gaining a few pips during the overnight session. However, compared to the sell-off seen over the last two weeks of trading, this intra-day uptrend is very small. Unless the cash and equity markets continue to stay into the green during the day, another round of USD buyers might join the market during the upcoming U.S. session.

The one thing that may hold fair value on most markets is the expiry of December, quarterly, and yearly U.S. option contracts today.

Obama Not Doing Enough nor Anything for Blacks

Is Obama Snubbing Black Americans on Purpose?

Ask any political group [with a brain] and they all agree, “Obama is following lock and step with the policies set forth by George Bush.” With a disproportionate representation in unemployment and severely disproportionate representation in incarceration, Blacks America is hemorrhaging from what everyone else sees as a slight slump in the economy. Reports across the nation show Black Americans showing 50% unemployment in some sectors, “last hired, first fired.”

  • Blacks disproportionately go to prison [keyword disproportionately]
  • Blacks don’t get job when they are qualified for them [keyword qualified]
  • Blacks pay more for insurance
  • Blacks are still being redlined [keyword still] (Redlining is the practice of denying, or increasing the cost of, services such as banking, insurance, access to jobs,access to health care, or even supermarkets to residents in certain, often racially determined, areas. The term “redlining” was coined in the late 1960s by community activists in Chicago. It describes the practice of marking a red line on a map to delineate the area where banks would not invest; later the term was applied to discrimination against a particular group of people (usually by race or sex) no matter the geography. During the heyday of redlining, the areas most frequently discriminated against were black inner city neighborhoods. Through at least the 1990s this practice meant that banks would often lend to lower income whites but not to middle or upper income blacks.)
  • Blacks do not get access to mortgages, even when they have credit scores that are at or above the appropriate level. [keyword appropriate level]

Now we come to the Congressional Black Caucus.

The Caucus describes its goals as “positively influencing the course of events pertinent to African-Americans and others of similar experience and situation,” and “achieving greater equity for persons of African descent in the design and content of domestic and international programs and services.”

The CBC encapsulates these goals in the following priorities: Closing the achievement and opportunity gaps in education, assuring quality health care for every American, focusing on employment and economic security, ensuring justice for all, retirement security for all Americans, increasing welfare funds and increasing equity in foreign policy.

On its face, I, as a Black man, think the CBC is a complete failure, a failure the heights of which are boundless. The country which had hundreds of Historically Black Colleges to give Black Americans an equal footing and offer even remedial courses to give the poor and the illiterate Blacks a fighting chance, has seen them close in record numbers. Yet the CBC continue the regular congressional practice of adding pork and fat in legislation for their own, state, pet projects. Who cares if the bridge to nowhere gets funding if the local Black college shuts down, throwing tens of thousands of your own constituents back into the dark ages. [but I’m not here to point fingers, so you didn’t read that]

In a show of solidarity and trying to appear as if they cared, the CBC came out to the press against the complete lack of attention to Black America as perpetrated by the Obama administration. For the record, I completely agree. For the list provided above, any president, with a heart, would bend over backwards to eradicate once and for all institutional racism which targets the second largest group of Americans in the nation. You can’t build a solid tomorrow when whole segments of the population are targeted both by the private and public sector as scapegoats and a means to money launder ill-gained goods.

This administration turns a blind eye to a very obvious and sinister practice: target and make money off of Blacks. This isn’t just a case of someone being racist. Racism at its core is nothing. You don’t like someone because of their skin, so what. Go cry on someone’s shoulder that cares. What I am talking about, and the data shows it, is that people have discovered they can target Blacks and due to government subsidies and programs, make billions of dollars off of it.

Incarcerating a Black person makes $30,000.00 yearly. An academic study in 2001 found the national and state average annual cost to be roughly the same, about $22,600. Adjusting for inflation, the current annual cost figure would amount to $28,200. The federal government’s Bureau of Justice Statistics says that 2,310,984 people are in state and federal correctional facilities. That implies an annual cost of $65 billion. For those of you keeping score at home, that’s more than global beverage giant Coca-Cola’s (NYSE: KO ( 57.24 ↓1.18 (2.02%)) entire annual revenue in 2008.

Do the math. If incarcerating Black people makes more money than Coke makes around the entire world, do you think just maybe those Blacks might not be as “criminal” as you think? Americans need to grow up. In business, these days, if you can get away with lying, cheating, and stealing AND make a profit doing it, you’ll do it. If you can pass mandatory sentencing for petty crimes and misdemeanors, you’ll do it. Everyone is aware that congress passes legislation according to campaign contributions. Why is it so bloody hard to understand that nearly every law is now passed that way.

Why are Blacks behind bars? It is statistically impossible that a population that is only 13% represented in the country, could represent 25% of the entire world population behind bars. There are FOUR times the amount of Black people in jail and prison in America than the rest of the world prison population combined. So why are Blacks in jail? Because it makes so much damn money. It makes an ungodly amount of money. It makes so much money you can’t even count it nor understand the number.

It’s a $1.6 billion outfit based in Nashville that owns or manages half the outsourced prison beds in the country. It keeps the 44 facilities it owns and the 20 it leases full: In 2008, 2007 and 2006, its average compensated occupancy was 95.5%, 98.2%, and 95.0%, respectively. That’s far better and with a greater economy of scale than the nation’s hotels, which were only 58.5% full as of April 2009.

Can the same be said for higher insurance premiums for Blacks? That’s a no-brainer.

Can the same be said for refusing to hire or readily firing Blacks? Ah, you have to remember that there’s legislation…. remember way back when hiring Blacks was an issue? and they came up with this whole “Affirmative Action”. It was supposed to make everyone equal. They had charts and graphs, figures and spreadsheets. Affirmative Action was supposed to cure Jim Crow southern America. But, what people didn’t know is Affirmative Action only applied to corporation with government contracts and who received government money. So to make money they complied with Affirmative Action. So you comply by putting into plan to hire minorities and women. Hire them. Then fire them immediately after you have your money. The same is said of schools. Schools comply with affirmative action, then raise tuition for all students, which is their ultimate goal anyway. The more government money they receive, by barely complying, the larger their coffers become. No more Blacks are educated today than they did 25 years ago, in fact the numbers have gone drastically down.

Did the Clinton or Bush administration speak to these issues? No! Has the Obama administration spoken to these issues? Let’s see what the Congressional Black Caucus has to say.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said that the administration hasn’t done enough to target the African-American community when drafting economic recovery plans. African Americans, she said, have suffered a “devastation” during the economic downturn unlike the pain felt in other communities.

“When you have disproportionate pain, when you have the kind of devastation that we’re having in our community….You have to target legislation and actions so that you can deal with that devastation,” Waters said on TV One’s “Washington Watch.” “You have two sick patients. One has pneumonia and one has a cold. You don’t give aspirin to the one with pneumonia.”

Rep. Emmanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) agreed. “It’s absolutely ludicrous to us that most Americans took a haircut in the recession,” Cleaver said. “African Americans took a beheading. To say that we’re going to ignore the community in terms of doing damage, but to say that we’re not going to target them [in the recovery is] ludicrous.”

“There’s no rift between the Congressional Black Caucus and the president and the administration,” said Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.). “I believe the president gets it.”

It has been said that President Obama is following the Bush policies succinctly. If you lay the two administrations plans side by side, you can clearly see that there is little to no deviation. Some even say that the Obama administration is the Bush policies carried to the next level, greater spending and more money laundering by Wall Street under the guise of these bailouts. Clearly the administration, that progressive whites and Blacks alike had hoped would put to wrest the question of racism and the complete subjugation of whole sectors of Black Americans has gone not only unanswered, but ignored.

In fact one reporter that asked President Obama, in his 100 days speech, directly “what will you do about the 50% unemployment rate of Black men in New york,” was completely ignored.

The hand writing was on the wall way back then. We are now closing in on the one year anniversary of the Obama presidency, and nothing has been done, in fact it is now worsened with rising unemployment. The entire world expected president Obama to “clean up” America’s long standing apartheid practices. The U.N. constantly spoke out against Bush not doing anything about the apartheid situation in America, and now they see with the Obama administration those speeches are falling on deaf ears.

It is a case of the first female to get a position of power so she overcompensates by being harder than all of her male predecessors. President Obama is going out of his way to avoid Black Americans. One political pundit said he is trying to avoid being looked upon as a civil rights activist.

Frankly, in my opinion, ALL of our civil rights and civil liberties and constitutional rights are being treaded upon by the Federal Reserve Bank, Wall Street, congress and this administration and state and local governments. We need a president to stand up for us and uphold the constitution.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

However the patriot act is still in place and is being enforced in such a manner that people cannot even tell you they are a victim of it. White people think they have it great right now, but all of these atrocities are going to be visited upon them, then who will speak out for them?

Dexter Season Finale Leaves Audience Twisting in the Wind

Dexter vs. Trinity

Well you know Dexter and Trinity had to come to its ultimate climax. And, you knew Debra couldn’t leave well enough alone and had to dig up Dexter’s past and confront him with it. But, did we all know the last 3 minutes of the episode would leave us twisting in the wind? Here we are sitting thinking that Dexter is going to kill his arch-nemesis in Trinity and live happily ever after. But then, why would we tune in for the next season? I mean it’s a great scene that Dexter butchers up the venerable serial killer Trinity, but that doesn’t leaven any hook for next season.

At the beginning of the episode Dexter is nearly comical. Trinity has him completely befuddled and confused. His inner demon tries to shake some sense into him, to no avail. He decks poor Quinn, who is just trying to do his job. But, can you blame Dexter? Trinity finds out who Dexter really is, name, address, social security number, oh and uh… wife and kids.

Dexter tries to chase down Trinity in a car chase scene about as good as … well as intriguing as I would have directed, and that’s a huge insult. In the scene he clips a guy’s rear view mirror. [foreshadowing] “I’ll deal with that later”, Dexter says. He catches Trinity unawares, drugs him, throws him in the back of his “come here little girl I got some candy”-van and is about to get away with everything when suddenly….

The rear view mirror guy shows up with 2 cops. Enter new scene with the worst acting, and unrealism in history. Dexter flashes his forensics badge to no avail and the cops actually arrest him, regardless of his telling them he’s on a crime investigation ‘IN PROGRESS’. Let me repeat this, Dexter says, “I’m in progress of chasing down a suspect right now”. And, the police quip “that might work up-town but at the sheriff’s office it doesn’t work.” Come again? Did they even run that scene by a police at all? I mean they coulda just stopped a traffic cop and had him look that over and he would have shut-er-down. There’s no accounting to talent in Hollywood. *sigh* So Dexter is landed in actual jail, away from drugged up Trinity. Oh and apparently Trinity has emptied all of his bank accounts, hmmm going somewhere?

His inner demon appears to him while in jail. Once again, it asks, “what are you doing,” which is the same question audiences are asking right about now. I mean, is this the same smooth Dexter that I’ve been watching all season? [was the writing this bad all season?]

The next scene fast forwards through 5 hours in 15 minutes. Ready? Dexter is bailed out by his wife, who wants to go on a honeymoon, since the kids, except for the infant, are all going to be in Disneyland. They argue over his being in jail and what is going on and why don’t you open up to me. [typical movie-girl BS] Dexter convinces her to go on ahead to the honeymoon, while he finishes up. Dexter returns to the kiddie porn van to find Trinity gone. But, Dexter reaches up in the ceiling of the parking lot where he hid all of Trinity’s money. Trinity is shown coming home and terrorizing his family to give him everything valuable. We have a brief battered-wife scene between the wife and eldest son, but nothing comes of it. Dexter shows up minutes later to ask where Trinity is. Wife is is still whiny and is casually talking to him, with the son, who is the only one with some balls, when suddenly!!!!! The police swat team busts through the front door. Dexter narrowly slips out the back. Dexter emerges from a coffin in the garage and plays it cool when the police come in.

Start scene with Debra confronting Dexter about his long lost brother, whom we find is non other than the Ice Truck Killer. Debra however doesn’t actually know anything about Dexter. Because of course she’s too stupid to put 2 and 2 together. Dexter is self doubting and says she would be better off without him in her life. To which she retorts, “it’s because of you that I am the person I am today.” [I don’t know if that’s a good thing or not, but she apparently thinks it is.]

But wait, Debra was the one that helped a little kidnapped kid remember Trinity, or the logo to his charitable organization. She singlehandedly tracked down that it was Trinity doing the mass murders, which is why the police burst through the doors.

Ok, all that’s over and finally we get to Dexter being the pink panther he always was. Trinity has fixed his car, and had it repainted. We saw Dexter earlier at the police break-in, notice the smashed car window of the Mustang. [foreshadowing] It is now night time and Trinity suddenly gets car trouble. It is a dark and deserted road. Suddenly Dexter jumps him. Flash to a scene with Trinity naked and taped to a table. [did we really need to say a naked, old John Lithgow?] They have the father son, Darth Vader – I know more than you do – serial killer conversation. Trinity asks Dexter, “do you think you’re better than me?” Dexter of course says no. Dexter asks, “what’s the other option, disappear and start life over somewhere else?” To which, Trinity replies, “no, you’ll still be you.” Hack, slack, smack, saw saw saw, whirrrr, buzzz. Trinity is now in neat little bags and thrown into the ocean, off the back of Dexter’s boat.

Hmmm, that was a boring episode, to say it’s a finale. But, wait, there’s 3 minutes left. Dexter comes home to start packing to meat his blushing bride on their honeymoon. He gets a message on his phone, which apparently AT&T really sucks at delivering on time, since the message was like 4 hours old, She came home because she forgot her I.D. We assume she popped in and went back out. He calls her phone to say he’s on his way. But, the phone rings 2 feet in front of him, in her purse. Suddenly!!! The infant starts crying. He goes into the bathroom to find the infant [spotlight] sitting in a pool of blood. Rita is in the tub dead in a tub filled with blood. Dexter flash backs to his own childhood where he was found sitting in a pool of blood and the police officer picks him up and puts him over his shoulder. Dexter goes over to his infant son, picks him up and puts him over his shoulder. [end]

Meh, if better people wrote this, this finale would have been superb. I sat in a chat room with about 700 other people. We were booing throughout the performance. The writing took away from the story. I mean come on, John Lightgow?

Afterwards Dexter [don’t know his name] and John Lithgow gives some insights to the episodes. The two were more eloquent than the episode itself. Their analysis of the episode was more compelling than any of the writing. So what that Trinity killed Rita. We all knew he was going to do it. The entire plot was Dexter trying to avoid him getting to her. So where is the surprise that he killed her? That’s not quite a twist. But, I guess for the more stupid viewers it was a twist they didn’t expect.

Citigroup Failing to Pay Back TARP

Bearish on Citigroup, sell sell sell

Citigroup shares were falling 6% to $3.71 Monday. It will immediately issue $20.5 billion of capital and debt, made up of $17 billion of common stock, with an over-allotment option of $2.55 billion. It also will issue $3.5 billion of tangible equity units. This is to account for $20 billion in TARP repayment. Although it received $45 billion in government aid from the U.S. government’s Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). The bank is only paying back $20 billion of the funds because the other $25 billion was converted by the U.S. government into a 34% stake in the bank.

The U.S. Treasury will be selling up to $5 billion of the common stock it holds in a concurrent secondary offering, according to Citigroup. Treasury will sell the remainder of its shares in an orderly fashion over the next six to twelve months.

Citigroup said the repayment of the funds from TARP will result in a pretax loss of about $8 billion, or $5.1 billion after taxes. Citigroup also said it would terminate the loss-sharing agreement with the government and cancel $1.8 billion of the $7.1 billion in trust preferred securities it originally issued to the government. This will result in a pretax loss of $2.1 billion. The bank said ending the loss-sharing agreement will increase Citigroup’s risk-weighted assets by about $144 billion.

The U.S. government had been protecting Citigroup from most losses on more than $300 billion of assets.

“The TARP program was designed to provide assistance until banks were in a position to repay it prudently. We are pleased to be able to repay the U.S. government’s trust preferred securities and to terminate the loss-sharing agreement,” Citigroup CEO Vikram Pandit said in a statement Monday. “We owe the American taxpayers a debt of gratitude and recognize our obligation to support the economic recovery through lending and assistance to homeowners and other borrowers in need.”

Once Citigroup repays the TARP funds and once the loss-sharing agreement ends, the bank said it it will no longer be deemed to be a beneficiary of “exceptional financial assistance” under TARP beginning in 2010, a designation it was trying to shake.

Citigroup has been pushing to pay back funds it received under TARP ever since Bank of America received the OK to pay back the $45 billion it received in bailout aid.

Citigroup also said Monday it would issue in January $1.7 billion of common stock equivalents to employees as opposed to cash bonuses they were to receive.

Can You Make Money with Citigroup?

Citigroup is no AIG

The question all investors ask themselves is, “can I make a profit.” One company that has had some surprising stories come out of it, profitwise, is Citigroup. Citigroup has been beleaguered with horror stories, culminating in it having to take TARP money. Currently any sound investor that invests in a TARP recipient is trying to flee the sinking ship. However, unlike AIG, citigroup is not in the same boat. There are some great stories of profits being made over at Citigroup.

The latest example is the Kuwait Investment Authority (KIA) – a sovereign wealth fund — that made a $1.1billion profit by selling its stake in Citigroup on Sunday. KIA invested $3 billion in Citigroup in 2008, as the Wall Street lender was reeling from subprime losses. Over the weekend, the KIA converted its preferred shares into common shares and sold them for a profit.

Government of Singapore Investment Corp. earned a $1.6 billion profit on its Citigroup investment in September. The Singapore government fund exchanged $6.88 billion of convertible preferred stock for Citigroup common shares at $3.25 apiece on Sept. 11. Singapore closed this deal in January 2008, which also included a $3 billion investment from former Citigroup CEO Sandy Weill, the State of New Jersey and Saudi Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal. With Citigroup trading this morning at $4.09, these investors are likely to earn a profit, if they sell their shares.

Through TARP we, the U.S. taxpayer, own 34% of Citigroup common shares, and are on track for a big profit. The government converted its preferred shares into common stock at $3.25 a share – at the same price as Singapore conversion. That means the government’s 7.7 billion shares have gained about $3 billion.

Abu Dhabi Investment Authority didn’t fare nearly as well. The Emerite pumped $7.5 billion into Citigroup in 2007, when the bank first began reeling from the credit crisis. Now, Abu Dhabi will soon start purchasing $7.5 billion of Citi shares, but at $31.83 a piece, or about eight times the current market value.

Exxon Announces Buying XTO Energy Natural Gas

Natural Gas Acquisition XTO Energy by Exxon

Exxon Mobil said Monday that it has agreed to buy XTO Energy, a natural gas producer, for $31 billion in stock and the assumption of $10 billion in debt, the largest energy merger in years. The agreement, which is subject to XTO stockholder approval and regulatory clearance, will enhance Exxon Mobil’s position in the development of unconventional natural gas and oil resources.

“We are pleased that ExxonMobil and XTO have reached this agreement,” said Rex W. Tillerson, chairman and chief executive officer of Exxon Mobil Corporation.

Under the terms of the deal, Exxon will pay XTO shareholders .7098 common shares for each of their XTO shares, or about $51.69 based on Friday’s closing prices. This represents a 25 percent premium to XTO stockholders. The deal, which is taking advantage of low natural gas prices, represents a 25 percent premium for XTO’s shares.

The deal would give Exxon the equivalent of about 45 trillion cubic feet of natural gas throughout the United States, in a bet that demand will continue to rise. XTO, founded in 1986, is the nation’s largest domestic producer of natural gas.

“XTO is a leading U.S. unconventional natural gas producer, with an outstanding resource base, strong technical expertise and highly skilled employees,” Rex Tillerson, Exxon’s chief executive, said in a statement.

Exxon’s deal has prompted speculation among analysts over which natural gas producers may be up for sale next, with companies like Devon Energy now considered potential takeover targets.

Tillerson said the agreement is good news for the United States economy and energy security, as it will enhance opportunities for job creation and investment in the production of America’s own clean-burning natural gas resources. [ I don’t see how this could be true. Normally during these mergers entire departments are laid off to boost profits and shareholder happiness. So, this statement is completely misleading. ]

XTO’s resource base is the equivalent of 45 trillion cubic feet of gas and includes shale gas, tight gas, coal bed methane and shale oil. These will complement ExxonMobil’s holdings in the United States, Canada, Germany, Poland, Hungary and Argentina.

Exxon said that after the deal’s close, expected in the second quarter next year, it would keep XTO as an upstream business unit to develop natural gas resources from unconventional sources like shale rock. The business will remain in XTO’s headquarters in Fort Worth, Tex.

The Final Battle of Arthas: Patch 3.3

World of Warcraft Unleashes the Litchking

The ultimate stage of the latest expansion of World of Warcraft, Wrath of the Litchking is upon us. The ultimate villain of the entire lore is being unleashed in this patch 3.3. We finally meet and face Prince Arthas. But, don’t rush out and think you’re going to meet him right away. Apparently you have to unlock him. You start a quest line that begins the chain for unlocking him.

This chain however is done through 5 player instances. So while the encounter is a 10 and 25 man raid, the quest line itself is doable with a regular group… and speaking of regular group.

You will now be able to do cross realm groups. So forget about sitting all day looking for a group. Or, forget about making sure you log in 9-5 on your realm to catch a group. With cross realm groups, you’ll have a wide variety of people you can team up with. So you can do badge runs all day, to your hearts content.

There is also quite a bit of changes coming in place.

– Classes: will not start out with their signature powers – for example rogues start with stealth and dual-wield etc… No longer will you have to quest for your signature powers or wait for 10 levels before you get them, or longer in some cases where the quest was hard, and no one is ever around any more in those zones.

– Summoning stones: no longer will you not be able to summon if you’re 10 levels above the instance. You can rush your lower level buddies through instances, and summon them using the summoning stones.

– LFG: as mentioned above you can now group cross realm. The entire LFG window has been revamped. It’s far ore detailed and you can see people’s comments on mouse over. Also, the number of instances queued for is no longer just 3 [thank god]. However, you now have a vote kick from a group. There is possible abuse in this feature. But, group loot is set to a minimum of need before greed and you can’t change that aspect of it. No more mages needing on plate-mail.

– Instance requirements: some instances now have minimum requirements. So if you don’t meet the minimum gear requirements, you won’t be able to enter. I don’t know if this is a good or bad thing.

– Need, Greed, Disenchant: a new selection is avialable in the loot window, disenchant. If there is an enchanter that is high enough skill in the group, selecting disenchant is an automatic roll like greed. If everyone selects greed/disenchant, the item is automatically disenchanted and the highest roller wins. Need, always beats either of them. And, the enchanter never touches the item.

So there are the highlights to patch 3.3.

Oh, I almost forgot. Players who take part in groups who have one or more members who have been matched with them randomly from within the Dungeon Finder will receive extra rewards, up to and including the coveted Perky Pug non-combat pet. The more random players with whom one groups, the faster the pet can be obtained.

Poor Tiger Woods

The Infidelity Report: Why We aren’t Paying Attention to the Patriot Act

6:00 A.M. Monday morning, a report comes across my desk of a porn star coming out saying she is the latest mistress of Tiger Woods. For those who do not know, Tiger Woods is a Black golfing professional. He is known the world over and is the richest sports figure alive today. Another report hits my desk monitoring the British tabloids, who are saying that not 7 but 10 mistresses have been linked to the Black golfing pro. The country is gripped with the scandal. To make matters worse, it is leaked that Oprah Winfrey made a confidential call to the Woods camp to offer her support and a chance to give him an opportunity to tell his side of the story on her show. This would be one of the largest television events this year if the Woods camp agreed.

Meanwhile real news was coming across my desk. It struck me as odd that the company was in the grips of media hysteria over a golfing pros personal infidelities. I mean, GOLF? No seriously, who actually watches GOLF? I don’t know anyone personally that watches golf. Oh they may know Tiger Wood’s name, but they don’t watch, nor follow him. I pick up the phone can phone one of my cousins, one of the many that are pro football players. I ask him about Woods and golf. He affirms my suspicions. No one watches golf, none of his fellow team members, not even the management.

So I’m left with the question of how could the entire country be gripped with this story about a Black golf pro. Then it hit me.

It’s a distraction.

The real news that was on my desk was still smoking from the heat of the story. It was burning a hole in the shiny wood of my desk it was so hot. But, who cares about malls being turned into prisons and break ins by the FBI into people’s homes in the past 24 hours, they have to watch Oprah and the latest whore that the self-hating Tiger Woods got his dick sucked by. The white people are fawning all over this guy. This is the same person that denied they were Black. Yet, rest assured the white people are laughing their butts off over this scandal, because regardless of what he says, he is just a jigaboo in their eyes and they pray he loses all of his endorsements and gets laughed out of golf. After all, golf is for rich white men, not a jigaboo that doesn’t even realise they don’t want him in their clubs.

Meanwhile, I’m stuck with the real news on my desk wondering when this stupidity over this clown will subside and the media starts reporting the real material.

But, by then maybe Obama’s love child will come out and we find that he’s a gay transvestite illegal alien terrorist and wants to be united with daddy Obama.

If you are distracted by Tiger Woods and his whores, you deserve what you get. Don’t wake up one day and your house, bank account, children’s schools are all gone and you’re being herded into a nazi style concentration camp. Don’t demand your freedoms guaranteed by the constitution then, because it will be too late.

Eating While Black

Scenarios of eating while black

I’m sitting enjoying ice cream with my wife at the local mall. We had just finished our Christmas shopping. I was going over in my head the list of toys I had bought and that secret something for the misses, she didn’t know about. Well I hoped she didn’t know, but I’m sure she probably knew about it before I even thought about it. The food court has a nice open ceiling to it. The snow gently fall through it, but we’re warmed by electric braziers set around the food court. Suddenly I’m surrounded by 25 men in military fatigues, all pointing machine guns at me. I’m ordered to stand up and to get on the wet ground. People gasp and hide their children’s faces. The armed men grab me and tell me to take my hands out of my pockets. At this point, I’ve had about enough of this. They say they are cops. Then suddenly my vision goes dark and pain shoots throughout my body. My heart! I’ve been tazered by these white thugs in front of everyone, and I look and see that my wife is too.

– This is the case of Major T Lemon on December 24th, 2007 in Wisconsin. There was an anonymous 911 call saying there was a “man” standing in the food court and that someone saw a gun. Apparently Wisconsin is one of the states that outlaws the constitutional right to bear arms. It seems the millions of idiots that live there have never sued the state on the basis of its unconstitutional laws. Be that as it may, this man was eating Gelato [Italian for ice cream] and ended up in the hospital, and was even charged for resisting arrest, although clearly no gun was found. He was simply eating while black. He was even trespassed off the property.

In this instance, the police did absolutely no police work. They had an anonymous tip with unsubstantiated corroborative evidence. In fact the victim in this case, Mr. Lemon, had all of his constitutional rights violated. Checking into the story a bit deeper Mr. Lemon was being targeted and the police were the goon squad that were the trap sprung in full view of the public. This was not a case of mistaken identity, it was a case of completely false information.

Mr. Lemon was an outspoken critic of the police, and the police were all too happy to carry out injustice and public humiliation. Least of the commentary about this situation is the fact that Wisconsin is a bastion of unconstitutionality. I can even imagine that when the police arrived at the mall, they saw Lemon first and then went to the security booth and pointed him out to see if he were the guy with the gun. Of course Lemon had no gun. But, at that point the whole scenario of the gun was beyond the police and they had their “scumbag” with his wife twitching on the ground. Thankfully, Lemon’s bad heart did not burst from the tazer or the full blown nightmare of their police debacle would have been evident.

The media was all too happy to paint Mr. Lemon as a “scumbag”. Not a single report came on the side of Mr. Lemon. Instead of reporting “Innocent Man and Wife Tazered While Eating Gelato at Local Mall” they all ran with “Suspected Gun Man Tazered in Local Mall”. Who cares that no gun was found? Who cares that no OTHER gun man was found? Gone is any notion of independent reporting. Either the police have the paper editors by the balls or the newspaper felt it their obligation to paint a Black man as some scary gun toating menace to society. Except,… he was sitting eating gelato with his wife, a very unlikely scenario. This fact is lost on both the media and the police.

I’m sitting enjoying a nice fresh lobster, fresh squeezed lemon with my bib on, enjoying the meal with my friends. Suddenly [yes i did nothing but eat] a cop appears before me and tells me to “stand up and keep your hands where I can see them”. Clearly this guy is something out of deliverance. He shoves me and then he and his buddy cop throw me to the ground and handcuff me.

– This is the real life story of Baltimore Raven rookie Tony Fein. Fein attended Ole Miss and was signed as a free agent in June following a minicamp tryout. He is an Iraq veteran who served in the Army for more than three years before playing college ball. In two seasons at Ole Miss, he had 136 tackles (77 solo) in 24 games, according to the Ravens Web site. The real story is that one of the restaurant employees saw a group of white men passing what he thought was a gun from one to another at the table, but it turned out to be a cell phone. The officers arrived on the scene and went over to Fein instead. A clear case of eating while black. Regardless of what reports say, Fein has never been in trouble with the law and has never owned any weapon. The cop tried to say Fein shoved him and caused him to fall and injure his elbow. Fein was charged with assaulting a police officer, yet immediately released.

This isn’t even a case of mistaken identity. The call was made about the white group of men. The policeman took it upon himself to turn away from the white group and harass Mr. Fein. It isn’t even a case of bad police work, because the dirty cop knew who the suspects were. I would hope that Mr. Fein would not only seek a very lucrative law suit, but seek to have both dirty cops removed off the streets of Baltimore.

In any instance were police are the bullies and antagonist, it is our duty to have them removed from the force. There is simply no leeway given to someone that has a gun, and can kill citizens without remorse to be in such a position. Everyone wants to jump on the side of the police, when it is the citizens that are at the end of these dirty cops. Police have to be better, faster, stronger and smarter, not dirty, degenerate, low-life, scum and villany. Police have to know the constitution like the back of their hands. They cannot plead ignorance, nor seek leeway in their line of duty.

Regarding and observing our constitutional rights is the minimum benchmark for police work to begin. We cannot say “but he’s doing his police work, cut him some slack”. If the police have to step on the constitution to perform their line of work, then they don’t need to be police. Why? Because thousands upon thousands of good cops are out there all day long that don’t tread on the constitution as an excuse for doing their duty or carrying out police work. It is an insult to these good cops to say that the scumbag cops are our lowered expectations of how police work is handled. Do we lower the bar for the retards on the police force to function? Or, do we keep the bar to the expectations we have for the good cops to perform.


While white people often feel that Black people inordinately portray themselves as being the targets of race, they only do so when they think the person saying so is beneath them. There have been thousands of reports of doctors, lawyers, police chiefs, judges, etc… that have all come out and said they have been the target of racism also. If all the ducks quack, don’t you think perhaps, just perhaps you might want to go check the shed for the fox?

I’m the victim of racism by the police all the time. Almost exclusively so. In fact, since I have been out of school, the only racism I have received has been from police and no one else. At 6’3 240lbs and good looking, most normal citizens wouldn’t dream of antagonizing me, but not the police. When I managed stores and called for help, they didn’t show up. And, I don’t live in a bad neighborhood. I nearly have a doctorates degree and carry myself like I own the world. I said that to say, I have no reason to nonchalantly play the race card.

The police are out of control. There is zero police work done these days. They think that cutting corners is the way to go.

What you should do if you’re stopped by the police while eating while Black –

  • remain absolutely silent to any questions
  • if asked for anything tell them you do NOT give them permission
  • if asked to stand, sit, move, come, go inform them that you do not give them permission to order you around and it is against your constitutional rights
  • ask for their superior to come to the sight
  • request to see their badge and I.D. [there are not too few cases of people impersonating cops who take people from public view and murder them]

If you are afraid of going to jail, you’re going to jail anyway. Get it in your mind that you are going to jail. Based on this viewpoint then, not giving police permission to completely rape you and trash all of your CONSTITUTIONAL rights is your DUTY. YOU have to protect your constitutional rights. Dirty scumbag cop? Yes, even against a scumbag cop. Cops rely on you to violate your own constitutional rights. Cops rely on your to give up your rights by giving them permission.

  1. if you do not give your permission to be searched, they cannot search you
  2. if you do not give your permission to be seized, they cannot seize you
  3. if you do not give your permission to be ordered around, they cannot order you around

Anyone who would say that you not giving permission is not “cooperating with the cops” are neither a patriot, nor even intelligent. It is your duty to protect yourself, even against cops. We live in a day and age where our survival is threatened by both criminals and cops. If you don’t wake up and realize this, you’ll end up not only with your constitutional rights trampled on, you can end up dead easily. Police carry guns and aren’t afraid to use them.
