Another 2016 Presidential Candidate in Trump’s Cabinet

18 11 2016

Falls Church, Virginia

If there is going to be someone who ran for President in 2016 or any other year in Trump’s cabinet, it will be someone who ran in the other party:

Jim Webb, at Defense.

It would be the traditional someone-else-of-the-other-party in the Cabinet, and it would be a consequential agency, and Trump and Webb mesh fairly well on military and foreign policy, and a number of other issues.





Irony Alert

Arlington, Virginia

WRC-NBC-4 DC:

Obama noted that the U.S. military is the country’s most diverse institution, comprised of immigrants and native-born service members representing all religions and no religion. He says they are all “forged into common service.”

When Obama wanted to accomplish what turned out to be the keynote accomplishment of his first term, and needed the military’s help, he turned to the least diverse part of it, the Navy SEALs.





Why #DraftOurDaughters Is a Political Disaster

28 10 2016

Brooklyn

Me, in AR, September 1:

The hypothetical I was given way back when to explain the concept of reproductive bottleneck: Imagine there were only 10 people in the world, all of them capable of reproduction, and assume no multiple births. Nine are women and one is a man. This means there can be nine new babies born every nine months. Flip the script, and it’s nine men and one woman. This means you can only have one new baby born every nine months. Long and short is that the higher a percentage of your population that consists of women of reproductive age and capability, the higher your population growth rate can be.

Let’s loop the hypothetical around to Chicago. Let’s say in the nine man one woman universe, that one of the men murders another because he got a speck of dust on his brand new $400 Air Jordans. This leaves eight men remaining, and the seven men not involved execute the murderer for what he did, leaving seven men. This leaves the one baby every nine months possibility totally unchanged.

The reason that black crime cannot possibly lead to black self genocide is because, for one, it’s a relatively small percentage of all black men, and two, it involves black men almost exclusively; it rarely involves women of reproductive age and capability as victims. It seems like we’re hard wired to protect women of reproductive age and capability, as if we instinctively know that we should never (redacted) where we eat. Not even the God-forsaken black undertow will slaughter its fertile women in significant enough percentages to affect population growth, and that’s saying a lot.

The practical reason why it won’t affect welfare spending is that the individuals involved, again, almost entirely young men, are not eligible for means-tested social programs, for whatever reason.

As far as AIDS and Africa, the reason it’s not making a serious dent in the population is that even without meds, they can reproduce faster than it kills them, and AIDS does affect young women. On top of that, here comes whitey with his ARV drugs.

Even though I don’t think she’s quite serious about it, HRC’s #DraftOurDaughters is playing with fire, and a highly potential and potent PR disaster for her political prospects.  She’s talking about, even if it’s not quite seriously, drafting our reproductive capability and putting it in the line of fire.  It’s not political suicide to allow willing butch lesbians into active combat roles for the sake of “gender equality,” but when you even semi-joke about drafting everyone’s daughters, then the sky is going to cave in on you.  Remember, these are the same people who are empowering college campus kangaroo courts on behalf of middle aged fathers who are trying to protect their daddy’s little girls.  These people should know better than anyone how protective people, especially middle aged men, are of their white bread American daughters.





In the Gayvy

Washington, D.C.

I’m not surprised that the Gayvy is the branch which is doing this first.

I think it’s more proof of the theory that the reason why gay cis men are so defensive of transgenders is because so many gay men seriously think they’ll want to go transgender.

And if you didn’t know how I was going to end this post, you must not have been paying attention in the last 13 years.





Wicked Feminist Profiling Trick

9 08 2016

Oakland, California

First off, what kind of surname is Anti-Palindrome?

Whatever the answer, the feminist essayist (“queer/femme antagonist”) with that surname has a new essay on how camouflage clothing is anti-feminist.

I didn’t need to go any further.

It’s because high-T man’s man types wear it either for official public duties (the military-police spectrum), or unofficial private pursuits (e.g. hunting, civilian militia, paintball).

Am I right?  Or am I wicked right?

Remember, feminist-lesbian-Jews want women in full active military combat, and Obama has gotten them 99% of the way there.

The raison d’etre of Earth, circa August 9, 2016, is to troll me and specifically and explicitly me.





Rest of the DNC Open Thread

26 07 2016

Philadelphia

While there was plenty of action yesterday, it wasn’t on par with 1968.  Sure, there are three more days to go, but I get the feeling that there won’t be any ’68-style confrontations.

My assessment of yesterday is that we got a lot of blatantly contradictory mish mash, the most obvious of which is that we were told that the country is already great because Baraq Obama made it that way, and the country is a dystopian hellhole of social injustice, income and wealth inequality and Republicans winning elections on occasion.

Michelle Obama used the occasion of her speech last night to note that “big men with guns” take their daughters to school.  These people all want us to hate cops, but they want their protection.  Remember, Baraq and Michelle Obama deliberately bought in a Chicago neighborhood that had two layers of police protection, CPD and UCPD.  They want wafer thin dainty transgenders armed with restraining orders to be your cops, but they want big men with guns to protect them.  They want affirmative action for the military and law enforcement, but when he wanted to pull off the keynote accomplishment of his first term, he turned to the whitest part of the military, the Navy SEALs.

EU wants its own standing army, because NATO won’t defend Europe.

I know, right?  NATO members states’ armed forces aren’t defending Europe from the immigration invasion, (which Angela Merkel asked for, shhh), so the EU wants its own army that won’t defend Europe from the immigration invasion (hint:  the EU and Germany are basically the same thing, shhh).
