Obama Won’t Appoint Elizabeth Warren Why?

We Already Have Appointed a Woman, What More Do You Want?

Professor Elizabeth Warren

I have to admit truth to truth, Elizabeth Warren would set the consumer raping industry [banks] on its ear, were she appointed as Chair of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, IF AND ONLY IF, she actually had any power in the position.  As it stands now, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, is under the thumb of the Federal Reserve, which is like putting the fox in charge of the chickens.  Give it 6 months and there will be no Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to speak of.  It’s already starting to happen as we speak.

Enter Robert Gibbs, White House spokesman, on Elizabeth Warren’s potential to be a candidate: “I don’t think any criticism, in any way, by anybody would disqualify her.”  Yet Obama has not nominated her at all.  Gee I wonder why this is?  Could it be the very people, whom he stole money from taxpayers, to bail out, would have a cow?  The powers that be are showing their muscle by Obama not appointing Elizabeth Warren to the position. 

According to the National Journal, the banking industry “privately grumbles that Warren would be their least favorite candidate to head the agency.” Or, as Floyd Norris put it in the New York Times, “whether or not she is named to run the bureau may depend on how willing the president is to anger the banks.”

Warren is one of the best people for the position. Picking her is a no-brainer. Rarely does a president have the opportunity for such a plethora of best people for the job, when it comes to appointing someone to a position.  This position, at this time, being filled by Elizabeth Warren is one of those rare opportunities.  Change huh?

Not only is she one of the country’s foremost experts on bankruptcy law and the multiple ways in which banks trick and trap consumers, she’s been the leading advocate for the creation of the agency, which the banking industry worked night and day to kill. In fact, it was Warren who came up with the idea for the agency in the first place, in a paper she wrote in 2007.

Senators and Congressmen alike are lining up to laud Warren as the best possible choice:

  • Sen. Al Franken: “In my consideration, I think Elizabeth would be the best.”
  • Rep. Barney Frank (chair of the House committee that drafted the financial reform bill): “She’s far and away the best candidate.”
  • Sen. Bernie Sanders: “No one in our nation could do a better job.”
  • Rep. Rosa DeLauro: “In my living room with many members of congress, she predicted what was going to happen several years ago. As she put it in 2007, consumers cannot buy a toaster that has a one in five chance of bursting into flames but they can enter into a mortgage that has the same one in five chance of putting them out onto the street…Professor Warren we cannot, Ma’am, do it without you.”
  • Sen. Jeff Merkley: “I support Elizabeth Warren…She has both the clarity of the need for an agency that has as its top mission protecting citizens against tricks, traps and scams, and she has the ability to articulate that vision. She has the leadership skills and the knowledge of the financial world. She has the full set of requirements to be an effective leader.”
  • Sen. Tom Udall: “Should [the president] decide to nominate her to lead the Bureau, it will be a clear sign that the Bureau will be a champion for the American consumer, will stand up to unscrupulous actors and will not shrink from…fulfilling its mission under pressure.”

Secretary Tim Geithner:

She is an enormously effective advocate for reform. Probably the most effective advocate for consumer protection in the country. She has huge credibility and she played a decisive role in helping make the public case for reform and she was early on this, way ahead of everybody else. – Sunday on ABC’s This Week

If you know about Goldman Sachs Geithner  you know why he has stopped short of endorsing Warren (and, indeed, privately argued against her)?

Critics like Senetor Chris Dodd told NPR’s Diane Rehm:

“The question is, ‘is she confirmable?’ And there’s a serious question about it.” And today he challenged Robert Gibbs’ assertion that Warren is “very confirmable”: “How does he know that?”

With mid-term elections on our doorstep, it’s rather easy to be bold:

“Are the Republicans, when we bring her name up, going to argue that she shouldn’t be confirmed because she’s too tough on the big banks and too tough on the financial industry?” asked Senetor Tom Harkin. “Boy, that’ll get them a lot of votes in November!”

Unfortunately there is a provision in the financial reform bill the president signed into law last week that allows the Treasury Secretary to name someone to head the Consumer Bureau until the Senate confirms a presidential nominee.  There is no way Goldman Sachs Geithner will appoint Warren in the interim.

“The statute gives the Treasury Secretary the obligation to get it done, but doesn’t tell him how to get it done,” says Gail Hillebrand of the Consumers Union. “Consumers have been waiting a long time. The sooner we can get it off the ground the better.”

Media outlets would have you think this is a Republican Democrat thing, however if you’ve been paying attention to this blog, you know it isn’t.  The democrats are no more beholden to the banks than the Republicans are.  They are all bought and paid for.

Elizabeth Warren vs Tim Geithner

Opposition marketing spin currently being test-marketed is that because Warren is such a zealous advocate for consumers she would somehow be bad for “innovation.” The same innovation that brought us credit default swaps, teaser rates, 600 percent payday loan rates, and that led to widespread foreclosures and bankruptcies. This line of reasoning is akin to saying that we don’t want our police force to be very vigilant, lest it diminish criminal innovation. Warren herself addressed this ludicrous claim in a paper in 2008:

Innovation in financial products has produced incomprehensible terms and sharp practices that have left families at the mercy of those who write the contracts.  This is exactly why the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was created in the first place. If someone with Warren’s skill set and perspective isn’t named to head it, why even bother creating it? Just so another banking industry shill has a place to cool his heels before adding a few zeros to his salary when he quits and joins the companies he was ostensibly regulating? Given that this is the usual M.O. of how regulatory agencies in Washington work, it’s all the more important to name Warren so she can start the Consumer Bureau off on the right foot — as a true voice for the people.

So which way will Obama go? If he makes his decision on the merits, Elizabeth Warren will be the first head of the Consumer Bureau. If he makes his decision out of fear, she won’t be. For guidance, he should listen carefully to his own words:

All too often — our government made decisions based upon fear rather than foresight, and all too often trimmed facts and evidence to fit ideological predispositions. Instead of strategically applying our power and our principles, we too often set those principles aside as luxuries that we could no longer afford. And in this season of fear, too many of us — Democrats and Republicans; politicians, journalists and citizens — fell silent… if we continue to make decisions from within a climate of fear, we will make more mistakes.

That was Barack Obama in May of last year, talking about the Bush administration’s approach to national security in the wake of 9/11. As he finds himself in a different kind of “season of fear,” will he use his insights as a guide to his decision?

Arizona Immigration Law: Perfectly Constitutional

Trying to Tear Down States Rights Over Federal Cowardice

Governor Jan Brewer

While the country is going to hell in a handbasket, so many news organizations are steadily heaping logs onto the fire.  Instead of them actually reporting factual news, they instead “report” a bunch of drama surrounding the news.  This sells papers and advertisement, and makes EVERYONE dumber than they were 2 minutes before reading the stories.  This is exactly the case surrounding the Arizona immigration law controversy.  Instead of them reporting that the 9th circuit court of appeals refuses to listen to the case, because THERE IS NO CASE, they instead tell you they refuse to “get into the controversy”.  They even quote democrats, versus a republican governor, who says that the law is “laughable.”  What’s laughable is that the federal government is trying to trump a state’s right to protect itself, its economy and its citizens from unchecked illegal immigration that is destroying the state from the inside.  They don’t report how these illegal immigrants are not the supposed hard working salt of the earth people seeking a better life, but a bunch of gang-bangers, underage prostitution runners, human traffickers, who are all murdering people, burning people’s homes and shutting down entire infrastructures.

Let me report the news as it should have been reported.  No emotions, no drama, no scandal, I’ll give you just the boring facts.

The facts are the Obama administration has very powerful friends that want virtual slave labor in the country.  They only see the illegal immigrants as potential second class citizens they can use and abuse.  They don’t care that these illegals are not the hard working folks everyone tries to portray them as in the media.  In fact only 1 in 7 is that hard working.  Quite a few get on the government dole as soon as they cross the border and are a drain on the economy.  But these big people don’t care, they would prefer to just get millions and millions in so that 1 in 7 can be millions, regardless of the other 6 in 7.

In steps Arizona, a border state, that cannot take it any more.  Murder, prostitution, drugs, arson, chaos, anarchy, is enough to get anyone’s attention.  The public outcry by border towns could not be ignored any longer.  So the legislators and Governor Jan Brewer stepped in with applying the constitution to their state.

Actual La Raza Poster

Unlike those who don’t understand, the federal government is NOT the supreme law of the land.  States have equal power to the federal government and has always had equal power.  In fact, time and again the supreme court has bowed to a state’s right to regulate itself, over wishes by the federal government.  Only in egregious instances of state abusing citizens has the courts allowed the federal government to step in on the citizen’s behalf, i.e. Blacks being lynched, genital mutilation and jim crow.  But, this is not that instance.  The protection of the constitution does not blanket non-citizens, to begin with, and the citizens that ARE being abused are the citizens of the state and not the illegal immigrants.

However, what you see in the press is emotional pictures of old women crying, supposedly opposing the law.  These marches and protests are organized by people who have an agenda that you will never hear about in the news.  What is this agenda?  Pure and simple, racism.  These groups want Mexicans to come to the U.S. unchecked, without stipulation, without any litmus tests whatsoever.  They want to transplant, if they can, the entire Mexican country inside the U.S.  And, why is this? for political gain and power.  They have already started, by getting legislation passed in many other states that would tie the hands of all law enforcement agencies, including the federal government, from determining immigration status, checking citizenship I.D. for gaining benefits, voting.

The Arizona legislation was a tremendous blow to this racist agenda of unchecked illegal Mexican immigration.  However, these immigrants destroyed the very thing that they came here for, the economies of many border towns.  Whole school districts had to close due to lack of funding and tax payer input.  Hospitals had to shut down due to non-payment by illegal immigrants getting services and not paying for them, by the hundreds of thousands.  Clinics had to shut down due to lack of funding.  Civic infrastructure had to shut down.  When 40% of the population is paying for the entire infrastructure of businesses and state benefits, they will shut down and go out of business. The load is too much for such a small paying population to bear.

La Raza Protest March

The crimes go unreported in the national media surrounding illegal immigrants.  If they do, they are immediately called bigots and racist for reporting it.  If police dedicate themselves to busting illegal immigrant gangs that have contracts to kill-on-sight Black people [real story] they are called racist cops for targeting latinos.  If a cop pull over a criminal, with no insurance to cover the cost of him destroying a city bus with his car, and asks for immigration status, he’s called a racist.

The agenda of these racist organizations to allow illegal immigration into the country, unchecked, is completely out of hand.  It has hampered many many state and local authorities right to protect their own citizens.

Getting back the Obama administration.  Unless you’ve been under a rock for the past century, the presidency is not a controlling position in the U.S.  It is controlled by very powerful lobbies and business interests.  The fallout of competing interests were made readily apparent, to anyone with a brain, in the George W. Bush elections 2000 and 2004.  The veil was pulled aside, briefly, so that everyone could see the man behind the curtain.  So as mentioned earlier these powers allow these racist organizations to thrive and continue unabated with their vile agenda.  It [the organizations] serves their [the powers that be] purpose nicely.

Enter the courts.  U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton blocked the law by imposing an injunction for it going forward.

“Basically we believe (the law) is constitutional but she obviously pointed out faults that can possibly be fixed, and that’s what we would do,” Brewer told The Associated Press.

Sad Poster to See

In her temporary injunction Wednesday, Bolton delayed the most contentious provisions of the law, including a section that required officers to check a person’s immigration status while enforcing other laws. Bolton indicated the federal government’s case has a good chance at succeeding in its argument that federal immigration law trumps state law.  Brewer has said she’ll challenge the decision all the way to the Supreme Court.

Let’s hope Governor Brewer does not cave into pressures from lobbies that have no public interest at heart.  This law is about safety and the constitutionality of a state’s right to protect itself, for citizens to be safe and secure in their homes.  The press trying to convert this into an emotional issue of racism and bigotry, when the facts are people are hurting from illegal immigration.  People are dying from illegal immigration.  But the press would rather sell stories about how America is a big bad bully, instead of a story about it protecting its own citizens.

Johnson & Johnson and WalMart Poisoning Your Babies (video)

Class Action Law Suit Against Walmart Inc and Johnson & Johnson

In short this video shows that baby shampoo manufactured by J&J and Walmart contains methyline chloride a toxin that OSHA prevents contact with at construction sites, i.e. a person handling them must have a gas mask, protective eye-wear, protective gloves, and protective clothing.

Methylene chloride if you had been exposed to this stuff you get increased risk of developing cancer, adverse effects on the heart, central nervous system and liver, and skin or eye irritation. Exposure may occur through breathing, by absorption through the skin, or through contact with the skin. MC is a solvent, which is used in many different types of work activities, such as paint stripping, polyurethane foam manufacturing, and cleaning and degreasing.  So I am wonder how this stuff ended up being in children’s shampoo, OSHA knew about this stuff and established controls of occupational exposure.  Now we find that Johnson’s Baby shampoo and Wal-Marts Equate Tearless Baby wash both contain methylene chloride, banned by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in cosmetics Symptoms of being exposed to this stuff are effects on the central nervous system, headaches, disorientation, dizziness, fatigue, and decreased attention span; skin effects such as chapping, erythema, cracked skin, or skin burns; and cardiac effects such as chest pain or shortness of breath.

So we all assumed that baby shampoo was safe for our kids and we find that they are being poisoned and have risks of getting cancer.  A federal judge in New Jersey has allowed two proposed class action lawsuits to proceed against Wal-Mart Stores Inc and Johnson & Johnson over the sale of children’s shampoo and baby wash allegedly containing a toxin linked to cancer
The charges against Johnson and Johnson are they are manufacturing several baby bath products with dangerous toxins and markets them safe for children Johnson & Johnson is also charged with falsely promoting these products as “gentle,” “hypoallergenic,” “dermatologist-tested,” or “pediatrician recommended” for children.  Back on January 16, 2010 Johnson & Johnson issued a massive recall of over-the-counter drugs including Tylenol, Motrin and St. Joseph’s aspirin because of a moldy smell that has made people sick.

It does make you wonder if big Pharma is creating products that make us sick and get the additional monetary gain by creating drugs that counter the damage they created in the first place. Sounds very similar to the swine flu hype don’t you think.  The questions is what other products are causing harm for profit. Are we being deliberately being poisoned?

Date Like a Devil: Dominating Females

How to Get Women to do Whatever You Want

Date Like a Devil

[ this series is a joke series, taken from a first person perspective of a devil giving love advice from would be male suitors to women.  No offense is intended and the jokes are all in good fun.  Have fun reading. ]  Hello boys.  Yes, I call you boys because I have been watching you and your clumsy attempts to win over females are both shameful and infantile.  I am the devil, small D, little V.  You don’t know the origins of the name devil and I won’t go into detail, or your tiny heads might explode.  I’m going to tell you how to date like a devil.  If you can imagine, a devil can get, literally, anyone [ yes male or female, since we don’t actually have sex organs of our own] we want.  [ for purposes of these lessons we are going to assume I am a “male” devil and leave it at that]  Unlike most of you, devils always present their best face.  That means were are good looking creatures.  Hello!  Devilishly good looking, devilish looks, devilishly handsome, you get the picture?  Right, you however are dealing with the cards God gave you and the thing you pass off as a face isn’t so fortunate.  That aside, my techniques will land you any woman you want, regardless of your unfortunate face.

Our first lesson here deal with a power we devils like to call domination.  For us it is a power, but quite frankly you don’t need supernatural powers to actually practice it.  It helps, in extreme cases, but why go through that hassle?  Domination is the ability to get a female to do exactly what you want.  Outside of the actual “magical” power of domination itself, you should get it into your thick brain that no female will ever do anything against her nature, i.e. jump off a cliff.  And, if you’re the sort that wishes  females would jump off cliffs, this series can’t help you at all.  So are we clear on that point?  Domination is not intended to nefarious gains.  It’s funny a devil has to warn you against your nefarious ways, but… there you have it.

A brief word of caution!  Domination has a stacking effect upon the brain.  The more you dominate a single target, i.e. a lady, the more susceptible she is to more domination.  What’s wrong with that you ask?  At the end of the day, you would much rather have a female that willingly gives herself to you, than you dominating your way into her … life.  I’m sure you thought I was going to say something else there.  Shame on you!  No, trust me, having a relationship built upon free will and trust, is tons more easy than having to constantly lord over some female.  Besides, after you’re 12 levels deep within her brain, it isn’t a pretty site ordering her around in public.  The locals tend to get antsy and might riot against you.  No my friend, keep it a safe 2 or 3, the “honey I’m thirsty” level.  Oh wait, that’s the power of suggestion, we’ll get into that later.

OK, so let’s briefly list how to define and recognize domination.

  • assume an order, don’t ask for permission

Actually, that’s that only rule.  It’s quite simple isn’t it?  Unlike suggestion or love, there’s not 20 different rules to it.  Domination is domination.  Ok so what does the rule mean?  To dominate a female, you simply go up to her and demand something from her.  At level 1, these demands better be pretty damn simple and insignificant or her defenses will come roaring to the front to stop you.

The Devilish Poke

One of the best ways, I like to start off dominating a female is an exercise, I like to call, “The Poke”.  It’s exactly what it says.  I poke the female.  How is that dominating the female?  Ah, here is the rub.  I don’t just walk up and poke her.  After talking to her and complimenting her for 15.4 seconds.  I announce that I am about the poke her.  That’s not the dominating part though.  I then tell her to choose the spot where I poke.  By her choosing the spot where I poke, I have defeated her defenses to not accepting the poke at all.

The poke can be done all night, if you want to be a bore.  Or, you can learn from this and apply it to a wide variety of simple and innocent commands.  Remember, your point is not to do the action, but to lower her defenses.  If you couple dominate with suggestion, and your suggestion powers are actually good, you can walk out of a bar with a wife on your arm, and not just a one-night-stand.  And, trust me, dominating one-night-stands is a very dangerous affair.  Your pile of thralls can cause nothing but headaches in the end.

If you just want a one-night-stand, then I whole-heartedly do not recommend dominating a female.  Throw out some compliments and have a pleasant conversation and move into … “what if we had sex” part of the conversation.  There’s your remedial crash course in how to “hook up”, as you mortals like to say.  Although why you use that term is beyond me.  We devil use the term hook, to mean a very different meaning.  See, to a devil, hooking someone… is talking about their soul.  Hooking someone’s soul is quite permanent, I assure you.  We’ll go into more detail on hooking up later on.  FYI, one-night-stands actually hooks your souls together.  You lose a bit of your soul each time.  I’m just saying.

Level 2 Domination

You Don’t Have to Be a Handsome Devil

So you’ve got your poke level domination out the way, the conversation is livening up and you want to take it to the next level.  For the next level, you are going to need the supplemental power of suggestion.  We will not go over suggestion here, but just bear this in mind.  In fact, from here on out, domination cannot go it alone.  If you are stupid enough to assume your force of personality is great enough, alone, to simply sit around and dominate a female all night, you better be Michael Jackson, Mother Theresa or Ghandi.  Otherwise, learn the other powers and don’t be dense.

Ok so you’ve poked her, and you’ve made several suggestions, she’s ripe for level 2 domination.  After level 2 domination you can literally propose and she’d say yes.  Keep in mind, you can go for domination immediately upon the first meeting, or wait for days, weeks, months.  Luckily for you, you have no deadlines for souls, like we devils do.  Lucky bastards indeed!  I tell you, there’s nothing like crunch time to get the old noodle running.  I have to skip the first 3 levels of dominate and go straight to level 4.  It’s crude, I tell you, but it gets the job done.  In case your’e wondering, mephisto only uses a level 3 dominate.  You know mephisto don’t you?  Yes, that’s Mephisto of Dante’s Inferno.  Ever heard of it?  No?  This generation of non-readers.  Anyway, just to let you know… not that I’m this crude, but a pimp uses a level 3 dominate to get women to have sex and bring him all the money.  That being said, a level 2 dominate is pretty hefty.

Right, so what is a level 2 dominate.  It can be as simple as “come with me.”  While the command seems simple, you have to realize what is going on in the statement.  You are ordering the female to get up; move; carry her entire body; remove herself from the relative safety of where she already is; and to trust you that you will do no harm to her.  [see why level  3 is so much more powerful?  the female no longer trusts that you will do her no harm, but at that level she doesn’t care anymore ]  So how can you pull off a level 2 dominate?  Remember I said, you have to use suggestion a few times before popping level 2 dominate on her.

Do not mistake suggestion for dominate.  Let’s take a look at two totally different statements:

  1. we should retire to somewhere… more comfortable
  2. Come with me

The  first statement is not a command at all.  It is alluring, mysterious, and leaves everything to the imagination.  The second statement, however, is very direct and quite unappealing.  However, you can use dominate at level 2 to do many things.

  • separate a female from her distracting friends
  • seclude a female so you two can share a brief first kiss
  • single her out to buy her a drink
  • take her to a movie

Domination isn’t always about doing something unrewarding or unfulfilling for the female.  How susceptible would a female be to your dominations, if you said “come with me” and led her to a brand new car you’re giving her?  However, domination, unlike suggestion, does not accept reward for its actions.  So if you said “step outside”, and led her to her new car, you would follow up with five more dominations in a row:

  • throw her the keys and say “drive”
  • “turn here”
  • “get out the car”
  • “stand right here”
  • “close your eyes”

 followed by the final level 2 domination “open your eyes, you’re looking at your new house.  Marry me.”

That’s how you dominate a lady.  There’s no beating, no insults, no slapping her around.  Dominating is quite fun.  And, more often than not, it wins her heart instantly, where suggestion takes years.  Where suggestion is subtle, dominate is blunt and direct.

Careful though, because dominate can enthrall a lady.  Instead of a loving wife, you’ll end up with a mindless slave.  Trust the devil on this one, you do not want a mindless slave.  A slave is, has been and will always be, dead weight.

Also, it’s good to dominate a female.  Why?  Because you wear the pants.  99.99999999% of females will enjoy being dominated, and prefer it.  If, however, you run into one of those 0.00000001% females, then simply turn around and talk to the next one right beside her.  Make sure she pays attention to what she just lost.  Perhaps you can “fix” her.  Because she’s obviously broken.  This is coming from a devil.  What’s sad is, when one of those females do fall to domination by a man, he’s a demon, and nowhere near a devil.  But, it’s karma I guess.  Why fall for a demon when you could have had a devil, right?  Forget about them and move on, is the point.  But, most other ladies love a “take charge”, read dominating, kind of guy.

Eye Contact

Look Her in the Eye

When dominating a female, you always, always look them squarely in the eye.  You cannot dominate a lady by looking the other way.  The mere suggestion that you are unsure about your dominate is enough to break it.  Decide that you are going to dominate her, and look right into her eyes and do it.

Humans tend to weaken when you look them in the eyes.  I am sorry to reveal these secrets, but if I am going to Teach you, you need to know the whole story.  Looking a female in her eyes, weakens her.  By looking a lady in the eye, you immediately engage in a battle of wills.  Working on your willpower is another story altogether.  Hopefully you always win those battles.  Even at level 1 you are engaged in a willpower struggle.

Now, go dominate females and read the next lesson in how to date like a devil.

For Blacks: One in Ten Blacks Should Own a Business

Why Blacks Should Own Their Own Businesses

Ever since the start of racism on the planet against the Black man, has there been a struggle to get out from under the yolk of the white man and establish ourselves as not superior but equal to white men in every aspect of life.  The short sighted Black leaders of yesteryear and today plunged the Black man into a 50 year long struggle to gain equality at the end of a pen, i.e. “civil rights”.  Every civil right was granted, every policy changed, every uneven law undone.  And yet Black people are in the same economic predicament that they were in since 1860.  Let me repeat that.  Black people controlled 0.5% of the U.S. wealth in 1860.  Today, in 2010, Black people control, including Oprah and Bill Cosby, 0.5% of the U.S. wealth.  And we are no more equal to white men now than we were in the 60s.

There is no wealth like knowledge, no poverty like ignorance” – Ali ibn Abi-Talib

Black Owned Business

You do not grant equality.  It is taken by force.  A man does not beg you to treat him as your equal, he walks up to you and punches you in the face and tells you, you better treat him as an equal or there’s more where that punch just came from.

You can get more of what you want with a kind word and a gun than you can with just a kind word.” – Al Capone

Black people seem to run and cry to someone that will listen to their complaints rather than hire a lawyer and sue the piss out of someone that wronged them.

Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun” – Mao Zedong

We come now to the topic at hand.

The U.S. Black population, universally, tells their children to go to college, so that they might find a good job.  However, the statistic of white businesses that are started from college dwarf any other business start in life.  How can it be that Black parents tell their children to go to school to get a job, and yet the white counterparts start businesses going to the same exact school.

The great masses of the people… will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one.” – Adolf Hitler

After 50 years of civil rights, the median income gap between the Black man and white man is actually widening, not closing.  I’ve touched on this very subject in other article in my blog.  Search at your leisure.  How could this be that after the “tremendous strides” that our Black leaders like to say, we’ve made, that we are poorer today than we were 50 years ago?

Black Businessman

It’s quite simple.  White business starts have increased.  Black businesses starts have decreased.  Also white recirculation of money has increased, while Black circulation of money within our community has fallen off a cliff.  Every Black dollar spent by a Black person in the U.S. loses $11.00.  That means, that although we have $1 trillion in income, that comes into Black hands, effectively we lose $11 trillion.  Every solitary dollar in the Black community is spent into someone else’s community.  Black people cannot hold on to any money for any period of time.

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, but the one most responsive to change.” – Charles Darwin

Finally, because of point A and point B, Blacks control no real estate to any extent.  Although several cities are predominantly Black to a very high margin, not one Black person controls any center of power in so far as commercial real estate is concerned.  Black dominate certain industries and yet control no center of power in those industries.  There are companies which are predominately Black in their employee roster, yet no Black holds a position of ultimate authority.  That is not to say there are not Black CEOs etc.  That is to say, in these Black dominated industries or companies, Blacks have no say as to how Blacks will be treated in the company or industry.  Meaning you can have a company that is 75% Black and yet Blacks are mistreated out of hand and nothing is done about it, because there is no 75% Black dominated members of the board.  One Black CEO, equality does not make.

Why One in Ten?

What is so magical about one in ten Black people owning a business?  It is the measure of wealth that would mean we are finally equal.  But let’s first look at the word wealth.

Wealth:

Wealth is nothing more than the value of store surplus labor, i.e. those goods which can be equated to the labor that went into producing it.  Wealth is not income.  Income has nothing to do with wealth.  Measuring wealth only implies a good already present, not an incoming good.

So then, owning your own business is the only true source of wealth in this country.  Why is this so?  Easily, I’ll show you a measurement that does measure income, insofar as it applies to wealth.  I have gone over this before, but it bears more careful consideration here.

Median Family Income

  1. Asian $55,000 – $56,000 
  2. Whites $54,000
  3. Hispanic $32,000
  4. Black $19,700

Obviously there is a huge gap between white wealth and Black wealth.  But, simply looking at the number does you no good if you do not understand the why of it.  Let’s take a look then as how can we arrive at this wealth measurement with each race.  The majority of Blacks have no idea why we all are so poor.  It is a mystery to them.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” – Arthur C. Clarke

Racial Breakdown of Per-Capita Business Ownership

  1. Asian 1 in 10 in business
  2. White 1 in 34 in business
  3. Hispanic 1 in 54 in business
  4. Black 1 in 104 in business

It is readily seen that the huge disparity in wealth is directly related to the accumulation of businesses.  Every community that practices racism therefore is behooved to own as many businesses as possible.  Business then is an entity which takes in raw goods and maximizes profits from them.  This simple definition can apply to any business, even a service business, i.e. uses human labor as a profitable vehicle.  So then if you wish to practice racism you simply get your group to accumulate as many businesses as possible.

Corporations, n. An ingenious device for obtaining individual profit without individual responsibility” – Ambrose Bierce

As you can see, the top of the list in income are the Asian group.  The magical number that they have is, you guessed it 1 in 10 in business.  As blacks wishing to practice racism them, we should concern ourselves with reaching that magical number.  Yes, white control of centers of power and awarding of contracts to firm, may in fact go to only white firms, yes even still today, with Obama as president, if more and more Blacks were to simply open up firms, we could finally commune within our own community.

Nationally, African Americans businesses are getting shorted in stimulus contracts under the $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). According to statistics from the Transportation Equity Network (TEN), in December 2009, the U.S. Department of Transportation had awarded $163.8 million in direct contract, with only $16.8 million, or about 10 percent, going to minority-owned businesses, $4.7 million, or about 3 percent, had been awarded to Hispanic-owned firms. No black-owned firm had received a single contract from the DOT stimulus pot of money. The shortchanging of black and other minority firms has trickled down to local governments.

Black businesses also need to be stimulated in these tough economic times. Atlanta’s black-owned firms still face discrimination when it comes to city contracts. This is not a small point since more than 60 percent of the employees of minority-owned firms are people of color. According to a 2006 disparity study, Black and other minority-owned firms accounted for 48 percent of city service contracts in fiscal year 2005, up from 33 percent in 2001. Minority firms won $150 million of the total $312 million contracts in 2005 for private construction, engineering and related services. The expansion of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport was fertile ground for contract. However, minority firms received a much smaller share of city goods and commodities contracts.

With nearly 64,000 firms, Metro Atlanta is home to more black-owned businesses per-capita than anywhere except the nation’s capital. These firms employ mostly African Americans. This shortchanging of black-owned firms will likely continue unabated if some type of “set-aside” program and stronger accountability and transparency in tracking the use of all federal funds for economic stimulus and job creation. The awarding of stimulus dollars is one clear signal that we are not living in a “post-racial” society—even with the election of President Barack Obama, the nation’s first black president.

Black owned firms hire more Blacks than any other firms put together.  Yes we have upwards of 50% unemployment among Black men, but if the other 50% of Black men were to open firms, they would hire Blacks and that number would shrink or disappear.

Community Recirculation of Money

Buying from Black Owned Businesses

Buying from Black owned businesses is a major issue in our community right now.  However, if 1 in 10 Blacks owned businesses it would be a non-issue.  As it stands now 1 in 104 Blacks own a business.  You would have to search and search just to find the Black owned business.

Also with the mass exodus of Blacks from prior Black communities, there’s no way that our businesses and communities can thrive.  Middle class Blacks flee from inner cities, with some foolish notion that they are moving to a better place.  Meanwhile, white city councils are giving money to whites to move to these inner city neighborhoods for “renovation” purposes, i.e. to oust poor Blacks.  So the affluent Blacks are rushing away from the very neighborhoods affluent whites are flocking to, and getting paid to do so.  Some Black communities which are more than 100 years old have already begun to disappear.  Had these affluent Blacks simply turned around and opened up businesses in these communities, the very act of opening the business would have done more for the community than them leaving ever could.  Because invariably they would hire Blacks from the area.  This income would translate into larger buying power for the community directly.  And, as more and more Blacks firms open in the area, a sustainable community is reborn.  Young teens which suffer the highest unemployment rate in America would have jobs, since entry level positions would be filled by them.  That means, block gangs and juvenile delinquency would plummet.

As more Black firms would open in the community, assuming the firms would be diverse, and not all liquor stores or clothing stores, the community could thrive.  Hopefully grocers and such would be opened, the least represented business in Black communities.

When I give food to the poor, they call me a saint.  When I ask why the poor have no food, they call me a communist” – Dom Helder Camara

The magical number is 1 in 10.  If 1 in 10 Blacks opened businesses, we would be wealthier than Asians.  Why?  Because we are 3 times the population of Asians.  Notice Whites are only 1 in 34 in business, yet they are on par with Asians.  That’s simply because of their huge numbers.  If we got 1 in 10 Blacks to open a business we would surpass whites and asians in wealth.

The Earth is the cradle of the mind, but one cannot eternally live in a cradle.” – Konstantin E. Tsiolkovsky

Forget pie in the sky, and a better day tomorrow, money makes the world go around.  Wealth is power all by itself.  Anyone that tells you different is selling you for a fool.

Man Arrested for Smuggling 18 Titi Monkeys in His Socks

Weird Stories: 18 Monkeys Smuggled into Mexico City Airport

The Tiny Titi Monkey

A man was found with no less than 18 monkeys inside his clothing, attempting to smuggle them into Mexico.  A Mexican citizen, Roberto Sol Cabrera, arriving from Lima, Peru was arrested at Mexico City’s international airport.  The discovery was made after a random check was conducted.  He had put the 18 Titi monkey’s in a waist girdle.  What tipped the police off was that the man was acting nervously.

After questioning the man said, originally he had put the monkeys in his luggage.  He later removed them, he said, to protect them from X-rays” when going through customs.  Cabrera had originally placed the monkeys in socks inside the luggage.  Sadly two of the animals died before the discovery was made.

What is unique about Titi monkey is that they are found in South America and are a protected endangered species.  To own them requires a possession permit.  The permit is pretty pricey, which is a far cry from what Cabrera said he had paid for them.  He confessed to paying simply $30 per monkey.  In the underground wild species trade, these Titi monkeys will fetch a cool $775 up to $1,550 per monkey.

According to an international wildlife trade monitoring network named Traffic, wild animal trafficking is a serious problem in Mexico.  Adrian Reuter, a representative for the group, said:

“The reasons are two: one, because Mexico is an important route for those who want to smuggle animals into the US, and the other, because, as in other countries of Latin America, there is a deep-rooted tradition of having wild animals as pets.”

The remaining monkeys will be returned to proper authorities who will send the monkeys back and reintroduce them into the wild.  “We hope”.  [knowing the rife corruption in Mexico, it’s a wonder that the authorities themselves won’t sell the monkeys on the underground, but you didn’t hear that from me, cuz I ain’t one to gossip]

Donner Party Discovery, Lincoln Personal Letters

Donner Party, Scandals and Murder Oh My!

The Donner Party

In a statement released Monday, July 19th, 2010, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum said that Donner Party member James Reed and his family carried muster rolls with Lincoln’s name on them among their treasured heirlooms.  Researchers had made the unexpected discovery among the effects of a member of the Donner Party kept in a carpetbag on the group’s sojourn to California.  It turned out to be a military document with Abraham Lincoln’s own handwriting on it.  It took a team of librarians, historians and handwriting experts to confirm that the handwriting was indeed of President Lincoln on the document.  The document lists Lincoln and volunteer soldiers who fought in the 1832 Black Hawk War.

“We often find documents that detail fascinating stories about Abraham Lincoln’s life and times, but it is rare indeed for the document to have such an intriguing history after it was written,” said Daniel Stowell, director of the Papers of Abraham Lincoln. “That these documents detail part of Lincoln’s military service and that they accompanied the Donner Party to California makes them doubly significant.”

All four of the muster rolls include “Private Abraham Lincoln” among the list of soldiers. On one of them, experts say two-and-a-half lines are clearly written in Lincoln’s hand. And the documents reveal that Lincoln had a horse worth $85 and equipment valued at $15, noting that Lincoln received one tent that was United States property to be returned at the end of his service.

The lines Lincoln wrote said: “Muster Roll of Captain Jacob M. Earleys Company of Mounted Volunteers Mustered out of the service of the United States By order of Brigadier General Atkinson of the United States army on White Water Rivers of Rock River on the 10th day of July 1832.”

The documents are part of the James Frazier Reed Collection at the California State Library.  Reed’s name appears just beneath Lincoln’s on the list. He was one of the organizing members of the Donner Party, the group of pioneers known for resorting to cannibalism while enduring a harsh winter in the Sierra Nevada mountains.

Lincoln Muster Roll

He likely inherited the papers from the military company’s commander and took them with him when he left Springfield, Illinois, in April 1846 because they were part of his personal history, the Lincoln Presidential Library said.

While historians believe the papers accompanied the Donner Party for their entire journey, Reed did not. He was banished from the group after fighting with a teamster and stabbing him to death, Monday’s library statement said.  He left the papers with his wife after being expelled from the party, and “she brought them safely in her bosom to California when helped by the first relief party which went to their assistance,” daughter Martha Jane “Patty” Reed recalled.
