  • US murders concentrated in 5 percent of counties

    Heavily Democratic precincts.


    Oh, my God yes. In fact these counties are 70%+ democrat districts.

    Next time a democrat calls Trump voters hicks. You can call them murders. We have the guns. We don’t have the police. But we are still civilized enough to not shoot each other. Democrats are just not civilized.

    And by the way economics has nothing to do with this. While the high murder rate neighborhoods tend to be lower income. All low income counties don’t have high murder rates. Just the ones with the gangs and the drugs.

    None of the factors that you guys are stating have to do with the crimes. Drugs and gangs are the largest causes. A black population is common as well. But its hard to do this on a county wide basis. Because a large concentration of high risk can be in a county like Cook in Chicago which includes the whole city plus a few wealthy suburbs. While New York City is separated. So, It consists of 5 counties and no suburbs. Only two of the counties have high gang and drug issues.

    If you could bring it down to the zip code level you would see the gang and drug neighborhoods. Some will be black and others would be hispanic. But they would all have gangs and drugs.

    Hold on. 68% of the murders happen in 5% of the counties? And what percent of the population is in those counties? 65%? Not sure this is a story.

  • First Left-Wing Protester Arrested at Berkeley For Refusing to Unmask and Cooperate With Police

    That Ann Coulter for this arrest. She and the lawyer for the UCB Republican club both called out the Berkley mayor for not doing his job. The mayor told the police to stand down which allowed the mob to hold police at bay, fire bottle rockets directly at police from short range, destroy property and even allowed the mod to hurt several conservatives without any arrests.

    And as the mod was able to form again and again without arrests, it did so with greater size and greater ferocity. And encouraged them to break more and more laws.

  • Researchers Have Successfully Grown Premature Lambs in an Artificial Womb

    OK this is much easier with lambs than with people. Because farm animals are all brothers and sisters and can be made to have the same blood, Its relatively easy to store large amounts of blood which has the same DNA as the lambs being born. But with humans its very different. This would be good with a Handmaidens Tale style of human baby making. But it would not be too useful for today’s situations.

    A mother would have to donate lots of body first. Then have their baby. And in the case of full gestation her blood would be useless.

    The democrats are playing the same game used by Hitler. They attack all those who decent their world view. Hitler attacked the Communists at every forum. As Sinclair Lewis said, “When Fascism comes to America, it will be called anti-Fascism!”

  • Professor So Triggered by Male's Paper, She Couldn't Distinguish Him from Her Rapist

    Three things. First, I do agree that this person should not be teaching the subject. She is not fit to teach others in this area.

    Lets see what else her raper might think that would show up in a students paper. I vote republican. I like pizza. I watch football. The standard that a paper may have the same view point on a topic as her raper is not something that should enter into the equation, and if it does, she should not be grading people.

    And last, this teacher has the misunderstanding about grades as many teachers do. Grades should not be punitive. They should be a reflection of understanding the topic. Maybe quality of work. But not, I don’t like you. I’m going to get you.

    Trump should understand that China will use a Trump strike as reasons to build up their military. China will take advantage. Its not whether China wants this or not. They very well may. But then they will condemn the USA and tell the two sides that negotiation is better. China will move its army very close to NK. It may even enter if the US oversteps.

    The best thing for Trump would be for the little fat boy to quiet down and shut up on his own.

    Not really self righteous, as much as tired of watching the short unhappy lives of the once famous. I am not claiming superiority. I am claiming fatigue.

    I have watched self destruction all my life. And I break it down to whether or not the person doing it has the will to stop it. And if you believe that they do, at least at some time in their life, then you believe that they let it happen. Maybe not knowing or not believing that it would become irreversible at some point. But I guarantee you that at some point there was a friend, probably many, who fought hard to convince her to care and to change her ways. But she never did.

    Reading about Macron’s turn-ons and turn-offs, its clear that he is a Euroist. So we really have a choice for France. Le Pen who will give them their country back. And Macron who will sell it to the European Union. France has a long history of doing the wrong thing. They vote for the best looking male. So I think Macron will win. And Trust me, Macron is not like Trump at all. He is like Obama.

    Exacly, she did not do as well as she should have. This does not bode well. We don’t get even a door prize for coming in second. She was polling around 26% in first place. Lets hope she can attract some others for the final round. If not France is lost for another 6 years.

    Its funny, for thousands of years peasants have been going from the country to cities. You read about it in Russian novels, the Good Earth, even the Bible. But now its caused by global warming. Clearly Jesus and Moses were big polluters.

    I first heard this ridiculous excuse about two months ago and now I have heard it 20 times since then. The point is that Obama did not cause the Syrian refugee problem, it was global warming that did it. Not all those terrorists firing anti-tank missiles, grenades and machine guns.

    Well, I will give you tacky. Not sure the event. But they snuck into the oval office for pictures. Sarah has been there before. But all three did yeoman’s work in the campaign. They made it about Trump and not about themselves. They did a lot of work but did not take the spotlight. Glad to see Sarah do that.

  • Winning in the Polls, Not in Governing

    Democrats are winning in one area that nobody seems to notice but is very effective for their cause. The democrats are getting democrats on boards. Not just school boards, but company boards, and hospital boards, and especially charity boards, and university boards. In the name of diversity, boards are all moving left. And the endowments or budgets or what ever the pile of cash used to sustain the boards are going to left winged projects. And of course they are paying nice salaries to the board members as well.

    Interesting, considering most racists are BLACK!


    I was about to say the same thing. But let me add, the left defines a racist as white. While they don’t pronounce it, they mean White Racist. Its like the H in the word Honor. Its just not pronounced.

    And that is coupled by the argument that all whites are racists. While many whites on the left don’t have that view, their black friends standing next to them absolutely think so.

    So lets summarize, Racists are only white. And all white people are racists, even if they don’t know it or work to stop racism. So racist and white are synonyms.

  • Trump Fires Surgeon General Who Called Guns 'Health Issue'

    poinq to Helicondelta

    The left wants to call guns a health issue because they want to use the money available in the healthcare budget for anti NRA propaganda. The reality is that they can easily say the same thing about cars. Cars kill far more people than guns. And besides law enforcement budgets do have money to research crime, including crime with guns.

    The reality is that guns rarely are involved unless drugs are involved. And drugs are a healthcare issue. So if the good doctor had stayed on the Opioid epidemic instead of worrying about guns, we would be moving forward towards helping people.
