“Security Risks”

2 05 2016

Carr Square

Dick Durbin headlines a letter that various interested Illinois elected officials sent to the NGA opposing the Pruitt Igoe Carr Square proposal.  The letter describes the general area as a “security risk.”

How could Dick Durbin of all people be so racist?

Carr Square

NGA just announced that it prefers the St. Louis City proposal, the land just north of the old Pruitt-Igoe site.

That sound you hear is Francis Slay boogie woogieng like boogie woogieing becomes a crime at midnight.  Paul McKee can’t be disappointed, either.

Their lips say no, but their budget request says something entirely different.





Wicked Racial Profiling Trick

St. Louis Hills

P-D headline:

DuBourg senior nominated to three U.S. service academies

That’s all I read.

Probably black. Or at the very least, not white.





Moral Obligation

22 01 2016

Shiloh

Minor news in the minor soap opera about the new home for Defense Mapping (National Geospatial Agency).

KMOX:

St. Clair County Board chair Mark Kern said he’s not paying much attention to arguments that the federal government has a moral obligation to choose the city’s north side.

“Moral obligation” = The Federal government spending money on behalf of black people, which of course it never has before.  And also, Pruitt-Igoe and Ferguson.

If the decision is made in the next 364 days, then it will be made based on whether President Obama wants to make Dick Durbin happy slash help his own home state, though a part of it he doesn’t much care about, or whether he wants to make black people in St. Louis City happy.

Oh yeah, USAF, you’re in heap big doodoo.

First off, you used the holy visage without paying the requisite burnt offering to his living relatives.  Expect a trademark lawsuit by the end of the week.

Second, I’m angry at you for your cucking.





Nachos and Circuses

Washington, D.C.

Dan Gelernter writes in Power Line:

America takes its sports more seriously than its military. This is the conclusion we can draw from the December announcement by woebegone Defense Secretary Ashton Carter that women will now “be able to serve as Army Rangers and Green Berets, Navy SEALs, Marine Corps infantry, Air Force parajumpers, and everything else that was previously open only to men.” As though the only thing that militates against women serving in the military is baseless sexism.

The President likes golf, as do most presidents. It’s not the most aggressive sport in the world, but it is a sport where professional athletes of both sexes play the same courses and we can make comparisons of skill. Would the President be surprised to learn that on Golf Digest’s list of America’s 100 greatest golf courses, every single course record is held by a man? Women’s records are invariably a few strokes higher. The best women golfers, devoting their entire lives to the game, may be better than most golfers in the world, but they are never as good as the best men golfers.

Why hasn’t the NFL or the NBA or the NHL or the MLB followed the Obama Administration’s brave lead and started fielding women? In 2013, Lauren Silberman tried out as an NFL kicker and lasted just “two pathetic and pitiful” punts before limping off the field. Her best kick made it a whopping 19 yards. There hasn’t been a whole lot of women-in-the-NFL agitation since then. The idea of women joining, say, the Patriots’ defensive lineup, remains so ridiculous that not even the most doe-eyed frappuccino feminist is badgering professional football for women’s right to be trampled underfoot. But does the Secretary of Defense imagine that what happens in war is less violent than being run over by offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer (6’8”, 320 lbs)?

If Obama believes what he says he believes about women, he should be doing all he can to ensure that women will be out on the courts, fields and diamonds next year, giving the same lift to professional sports that they will be giving our combat infantry.

Whether he knows it or not, and he probably doesn’t know it, Gelernter answered his own question.

The real powers that be aren’t about to do to sports what they’re doing to the military and also to first responders, for several reasons:

1. Sports, especially football, eat up a lot of our tribal and otherwise masculine energy.

2. Sports are a big diversion, bread and circuses, an opiate of the masses, to keep people from paying attention to and noticing what the powers that be are up to.

3. Sports are a racial opiate of white men, it’s how the system keeps them worshiping diversity, especially black men.

4. While there will be some nibbling at the edges of organized athletics and sports on the part of SJWs, especially feminist and LGBTQetc types, I think the real powers that be will allow us (I’m using “us” loosely and “allow” for the lack of a better word) to win, as if they’re throwing us a bone to make us think we’re actually winning something, so that we don’t notice that we’re not winning much of anything.  Perhaps a better way of putting it is that the establishment will “let” dumb lamestream conservatives win “the war on football,” so that dumb lamer cons (note that Gelernter writes for the Meekly Standard) can toot their own horns on all their clickbait websites about how they’re really turning the tide and they’re really on their way, just because they defeated the left’s short bus Twitter brigade on an unimportant matter.

5. Golf is for important people; the establishment certainly won’t let SJWs overrun golf any more than they’ll allow Section 8 affordable housing in Greenwich, Connecticut.
