    The black students’ names I read off of the attendance roster in high school are almost without exception NOT names like Katherine, Priscilla, Susan, etc. They are LaShanda, Quaneesha, Imani, Taneesha, Quateesha, Daniece, etc. I have always thought that the newly-delivered mother must have looked out the window for inspiration, like reading what was written on the side of a delivery truck and deciding what a cool name it would be for the baby. It seems so long as there’s a Qu- in there somewhere, -sha or -ee- and it ends in an “a”, it’s OK. They don’t seem to have any correlation to actual “African” names coming from Africa.

    Another possible explanation...

    ``Concurrently, overworked interns on rotation in ghetto hospitals
    did what they could to entertain themselves amid 20-hour days in
    depressing surroundings. In 1963, as in all other years, one of the
    standard gambits among interns assigned to inner-city delivery rooms
    was to see who could cause the most outrageous name to be printed
    on the birth certificate of children born to ghetto teenagers.’’

    Not all schools yet RA, you hear about many of the larger urban centers and all, but if you get out into the bible belt areas and rural schools you see a completely different system that hardly ever makes the news.

    A classic libtard meets country school story from (where else) Salon:

    The school’s defining philosophy was traditional and conservative, starting with a sit-down-in-your-seat brand of discipline, leavened with a rafter-shaking reverence for country and flag. Every day the students gathered in the gym for the “Morning Program,” open to parents, which began with the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by a patriotic song, and then discussion of a “word of the week.”

    When we voted on cc in MO st Louis area voted overwhelmingly against it. I only feel the need to cc when I go to that h311 hole.

    From John (Unintended Consequences) Ross' column near that time:

        A black businessman (who was one of the handful of St.
     Louis city residents who voted for the referendum) and I
     were discussing the recent passage of RTC. I brought up the
     referendum results, and said I could not understand why
     blacks had been so uniformly against the measure. The
     proposal was a "shall issue" one, where if you satisfied
     the requirements (training, fingerprints, no criminal
     record, no mental illness, etc.) you couldn’t be denied
     the permit just because the sheriff didn’t like the idea
     of people besides the police having guns. The businessman
     stared at me.
        "I thought you were good at math," he said.  I allowed
     as to how I felt that I was. "Then you must never have
     taken Statistics and Probability." I told him I had done
     this also, and that it had been one of the most rewarding
     math classes I had ever taken (and incidentally was taught
     by Amherst’s professor Denton, who is black.) "Then you
     must be cowed enough by political correctness to never
     think of applying statistics and probability to anything
     involving race." Finally I admitted that this last
     accusation might be true.
        "Then I am going to ask you two true-or-false
     questions. One: Do blacks in the city of St. Louis have
     large extended families?" I answered in the affirmative.
     "Two: Is it true that in St. Louis, over 40% of the black
     males between the ages of 17 and 25 have criminal
     records?" I told him that was also true, unfortunately.
        "So here is the important question: What are the
     chances of a black person of voting age in St. Louis
     having at least one relative with a criminal record?
     Assume we define ‘relative’ broadly, to include the young
     men who father the children of our female relatives,
     whether married to them or not." He sat there waiting for
     my answer.
        "Are we talking fathers, stepfathers, uncles, brothers,
     stepbrothers, male cousins, sons, stepsons, nephews,
     mothers’ boyfriends, aunts' boyfriends, sisters’
     boyfriends, daughters’ boyfriends, stepdaughters’
     boyfriends, female cousins’ boyfriends, nieces’
     boyfriends, as well as anyone actually married to a female
     relative?" I asked. He nodded. "Then I’d say there's
     nearly 100% probability that at least one relative would
     have a criminal record." He smiled at me like a teacher who
     has just gotten the right answer from one of his slower
        "So," I said, "I'm to believe that the black sentiment
     in St. Louis was ‘I wish young Tyrone would stop robbing
     people, but I don’t want one of the people he robs to
     shoot him dead.’ Is that it?" I asked.
        "You’ve got it exactly," he told me.
        "But why? I mean, honestly, if some guy was married to
     my cousin and mugged people for a living, I’d figure he
     was making his own choices and could damn well take the
     chance of being blasted. I wouldn’t vote away my rights to
     help his sorry ass."
        "What if it wasn’t just your one cousin’s husband, but
     40% of all your male relatives between the ages of 18 and
     25? What if that was, oh, I don’t know, a dozen people?"
     Suddenly I didn’t know what to say.
        "You don’t feel that way," I said finally.
        "I’m an Uncle Tom. I’ve recently come to realize that I
     now have very few black friends."
        This statement filled me with an ineffable sadness.  I
     know that we will get Right-To-Carry here in Missouri,
     even if the Governor vetoes it. That’s not the issue. And
     every black Missourian with a criminal record isn’t going
     to get shot by an armed citizen—we all know that, too.
     In over 98%** of the cases where a licenseholder
     encounters a criminal, he stops the crime without firing
     a shot. It’s that way in Atlanta and every other big city
     with a large black population in a Right-To-Carry state,
     so there’s no reason to think it would be any different in
     Kansas City or St. Louis.

    Peet to pieceofthepuzzle
    I happen to know, as indisputable fact, that Yale does not protect women and covers up much, much, much more than you have any idea. I’m well aware of the Duke Lacrosse team debacle, and that some students across the country have cried rape that wasn’t, but real sexual harassment does occur, and if the person doing it has position and/or power, the university tries very, very hard to cover it up. This isn’t opinion.
    I'm here to confirm what puzzle says: I worked on a college campus and coverup was the name of the game. From administrators using physical plant staff and work-study student employees as personal slaves, to assaults on "rape row" (the cluster of fraternity houses) being covered up, mid-level admins using taxpayer funds to buy personal "toys," no-show administration personnel, "faculty" who don't teach a single course but have a rich income, and on, and on. I've seen a faculty member "lose" the final project of a student he didn't like ("girls don't belong in CS courses"), and one engineering prof. came right out and told one girl she didn't belong and refused to help her during "office hours".

    Say a word, and they come after you hammer and tong -- losing your job is pretty likely if you cross the lords of smart... The only remaining question is whether faculty or administrators are a lower life form; but they are both *scum* though.

    Forgive me if I am presumptious, but...(your name/handle)

    “Jack Hammer” was the father of “Sledge Hammer” on the hilarious (and short lived) television spoof of every crappy cop show ever made. The DVD relaese of “Sledge Hammer” even has a no-laughtrack option which makes it even better.

    Let me see if I got this right:

    If the the word ‘inalienable’ is not understandable, how could they (libtards) know it is “too vague”? See my .sig, libtards!

    The “not legal in the state of California” disclaimer applies to almost anything you buy. It’s like “looking for the union label”. I buy the not legal in California products whenever I can (they tend to outlaw the products that actually work).
    One of the California things that really (#@!*$${@$* me off is the CARB-compliant gas cans. Those things suck so bad that space is a vacuum because of them. I HATE THEM!

    I just found at Tractor Supply (bless them) a replacement spout and vent combo to replace the ridiculous "vent in the spout" self-sealing crud that is all you can buy nowadays. Just replace the OEM spout, drill a 1/2-inch hole in the top rear of the gas can, and pop in the vent. I'm just surprised it took so long for someone to market something like that. (Of course it is sold for "water jugs", *wink* *wink* *nudge* *nudge*...)

    The article referred to Mississippi as the Palmetto State which is incorrect. It is the Magnolia State.

    If that keeps up, SC is going to have to fall back to the “Iodine State.”

  • Supreme Court Deals Blow to Labor Unions

    I am surprised by this ruling as I think the unions had a valid point, all the works in a union shop benefit from what the union negotiates, unless non-union people are settling for less. Not that I am that big a fan of unions, but over time, mostly long ago, they had their place.

    The problem is that your premise is wrong. Dead wrong.

    This is not a “shop” situation, but the kind of SEIU sleaze they pulled in MI, WI and tried in MA a while back. This is a union raiding state aid to families with disabled and/or sick relatives for whom they provided care. There was no shop until the belly-crawling scumbags at SEIU sleazed through a law delcaring those receiving govt. assistance for disabled and/or sick relatives members of one — they even had the law in WI (ISTR) create an “agency” that their victims were “members” of. Most of the people thus screwed-over by the belly-crawling scumbags at SEIU didn’t even know it was happening.

    This is nothing more than theft from the needy by the belly-crawling scumbags at SEIU.

    I was in SEIU (briefly!) and I *KNOW* all they were interested in was raiding my wallet.

    “It's part of a corporate campaign to weaken or kill unions wherever they can, however they can,” Eisenbrey said. “It's a complete attack on all of the improvements in labor standards that have been made over the last 50, 60 years.”
    Mr. Eisenbrey, you drooling microcephalic slack-lipped moron: You SEIU thugs overreached. You are now facing the possible consequences of of your poor decision to loot the pockets of the ill and infirm.
