Suspect is described as:

…a woman in her 20s with a heavy build, black and red medium-length hair…

Black and red medium-length weave.  And she stole weave.

Shocking, I know.





Old Chatroom Buddy

Fredericton, New Brunswick

J.P. Kirby, an old chatroom buddy of mine from back in the IRC days, gets an article about what was even back then one of his obsessions in the Silver Mines today.

Though this year, I don’t think the St. Louis market will see the Rams quite as often as we have in the last twenty seasons.

Also, if I remember JP like I do, I don’t think he’s responsible for the Redskins defenestration in the first large map.  I think someone at the Silver Mines did that.





MUH DISPUT IMPAK

Downtown; Florissant

When you boil the legal and SJW psychobabble away, all he’s saying is this:

Black people get what black people want, everyone else go fuck yourselves.

However, it’s all a moot point anyway; the FFSD is already 78% black, and you can probably surmise the trend.  All I’m worried about is how far this MUH DISPUT IMPAK madness is going to metastasize in the Federal judiciary before someone puts a stop to it.  Remember, murder being a crime has a disparate impact on black men.





“Legacy of Slavery”

It really does say that.

Even though this is a report by the St. Louis Fed, it’s a report about the whole country, not just the St. Louis area.  The St. Louis branch of the Fed specializes in research and reporting.  Until recently, it’s where we got BOGUMBNS (aka M0) reporting from, to expose the vast increase in physical cash circulating as a result of quantitative easing.  “Until recently,” because they no longer report it.  I guess we’re not supposed to know certain things.

I don’t have the time or ability at this moment to give serious brain power to possible flaws in their methodology, but I want to note that this is interesting:

The analysis aimed to examine a general assumption that high-risk borrowers — blacks, Hispanics, the young and the less-educated — regularly employ bad choices and risk-taking behaviors when taking out loans.

“A general assumption?”  From whom?  By whom?  I know I assume it, and I know you assume it.  But that’s because we’re part of the untouchable untermenschen of the alt-right.  Official polite society does not allow us to think about these things or even know these things.  So, if STL Fed is thinking that this “general assumption” is pervasive such that they must refute it, then it must be because people are coming to the conclusion on their own, not because they are officially instructed to think that.  As you can infer from this article, we are officially instructed to discount that.

Just as an ice breaker, I think the main problem with this methodology is that its authors think there’s a necessary Berlin Wall between “bad choices and risk-taking behaviors” and “financial circumstances.”  When in reality, the former can affect the latter, and the existence of the latter can be evidence of but is not necessarily proof of the former.

Also, they tell us about blacks, Hispanics and whites.  But not about Asians, curiously.

 





Barking Up the Wrong Tree

17 08 2016

South County

This is becoming a soap opera.

4:

Many residents showed up and focused their ire on Councilman Mark O’Leary, who represents South County on the County Council. He is believed to be a supporter of the apartment complex.

“Mr. O’Leary, shame on you!” said resident Wendy Antalick. “You never once asked your constituents ‘what do you want?’ It’s simple, we want homes and not apartments. We have enough apartments in the area.”

Miss Antalick, you’re barking up the wrong tree.  You’re blaming someone who holds one-seventh of the legislative power of a county government, when you should be blaming someone who controls one-oneths of the executive power of the Federal government.  O’Leary could oppose it with all his heart, but the Federal government with its carrot and stick power is making sure that local opposition is meaningless.  If you want to aim your anger at a given person, the person is Baraq Obama, not Mark O’Leary.  Then again, that’s not quite accurate, because Obama didn’t come up with the idea for AFFH, neither did Julian Castro, current HUD Secretary, and I’m saying that because there’s a media temptation to blame Castro personally.  No, the right source to blame is the Democrat Party, because urban gentrification interests are an important core graft-contribution component of it.  Actually, beyond that, you can’t just blame the Democrats, because a lot of the political scaffolding for AFFH started in the Bush 43 years, and his father’s HUD spearheaded the very first AFFH precursor program, starting circa 1990 when the Feds forced Dubuque, Iowa to allow itself to be turned into dumping grounds for Chicago ghetto blacks which were about to be run out of Chicago because of what was at the time the impending onset of the demolition of housing projects.  And, just like today, the media back then used the power of the double edged sword it wields to bash the white people out there for their racism in not wanting black people to live in their areas rather than the racism of the urban white people in wanting to get rid of the black people around them and unload them on someone else.

As for my choke point strategy, it’s a bit more hairy.  The parallels that hold is that Miss Antalick et al. can’t take on the Federal government, because it’s too big, powerful, abstract, and besides, that’s where grandma gets her Social Security check.  They could take it to the blacks who move into the apartments, but then that will be horrible PR; most people still pity blacks, and the P-D won’t be any mood to tell us the truth, and Tony Messenger probably has a dozen scathing op-eds about the matter pre-written with blank spaces to fill in dates and proper nouns.  The middle ground choke point would be to make it personal against the private developers who will be building the apartments and the people chiefly associated with the ownership outfit which will own them and/or the property management outfit which will manage them.  But here’s a word of warning about that:  The same Feds who are wielding their power of “Fair Housing” to make sure the actual construction and habitation happens will probably be in a mood to bring bullshit fair housing conspiracy charges against people like us who try to make life hell for the builders, owners and managers.  Remember, from our own area, the Feds in the 1970s (?) rattled the sabres of civil rights laws to intimidate white people who tried to block the construction of housing projects in Black Jack and Spanish Lake.  And we know that the Feds will be very generous in stretching the interpretation of “Fair Housing” laws to make them cover drunken bar fights.  I think the only reason they’re not trying to interfere with this opposition to these apartments along Tesson right now is because they know that the opposition as currently manifest won’t be able to stop it.  But if they take up my middle ground choke point want-of-a-nail strategy, or anything which has a chance of stopping or precluding it, I wouldn’t put it past the Feds to bring the hammer down.

Probably the best thing to do now is for the opponents to start looking up Jefferson County properties on Zillow, sell now to oblivious suckers while they can still get something.





Thoughts of Hell

St. Louis City

I wrote here two weeks ago, about the House-78-D race which I otherwise didn’t care about, that:

…I noticed that Penny Hubbard, the incumbent, got a stiff challenge from forty-something comic book enthusiast and street activist Bruce Franks.  The only reason I’m writing about this is that, like I said, St. Louis City reports absentees first then about equal chunks of one-thirds of the boxes.  Hubbard won about 80% of the absentee votes, but only won the whole thing by a 51-49 margin, or by 84 actual votes.  Whenever there is such a severe difference between absentees and election day boxes, it’s safe to presume that there was some funny business with absentee ballots.  If I was Bruce Franks, I’d press the matter.  The Hubbard family, and there are several of them involved in various political offices, has enough pull to get enough people to send in enough phony absentee ballots.

For some reason, even though I’m two-thirds of a state away and I don’t avail myself to Democrat and aligned grapevines wherever I am, somehow I’ve been able to pick up on talk that the voter fraud allegations are starting to gain serious legs and it’s rattling the City BOEC.  The only reason why this one will get heeded is because it’s black Democrat on black Democrat.  City voter fraud between 1987 and 1993 which altered the outcome of city school board elections and the 1993 citywide office races, including for mayor, never seemed to matter.





Occupied South City

Dutchtown; Tower Grove South

Breitbart on the BLM radical splinter group called Fuck12.

Before I discuss the local angle, I want to note this part:

Though definitions tend to vary between common reference sources online, #Fuck12 draws its origins from Atlanta and Oakland social media users typically decrying the fact that narcotics officers (Code 12) are bearing down on their presumed illegal activities.

Keep this in mind, because I’ll be looping back around to it in a moment.

Now for the local angle:

A St. Louis-area “radical bookstore” has utilized the #Fuck12 tag to hawk its rather unsurprising wares as well.

And below that is this tweet.

A black rose is an anarchist movement symbol.

Black Rose Books’s Twitter page proclaims that they have one location at FOAM on the corner of Cherokee and Jefferson, and another coming soon at MoKaBe’s on Arsenal near Grand.

Cherokee Street between Jefferson and Gravois is really starting to become notorious for two things: One, Hispanic immigrants, even though for now, that’s their only real patch in the city; they’re not a factor in citywide or regional affairs as a whole, though that’s where St. Louis’s Cinco de Mayo is celebrated every year, mainly another drinking opportunity for normal people around here not of the ethnicity being celebrated (see also:  Mardi Gras, St. Patrick’s Day).  Two, white or (((white))) young far left anarchist type extremist activism and politics. Some community arts hovel called CAMP (?) is on Cherokee about a block away from the old Hermann Eisele joint, (and consider the irony of that for one moment).  Bernie Sanders’s St. Louis HQ was also somewhere that part of Cherokee.  This is not on Cherokee Street itself, but a couple of blocks north on Jefferson, and having the name Cherokee in it, but the Cherokee Rec Center is where Knockout Martin Luther King was born.  Even though the black undertow is being pushed away from Cherokee Street specifically, they still predominate in some of the surrounding neighborhoods, and often cause trouble for Hispanics, hipsters and anarchists, and especially other black people, around there and in the general area.

MoKaBe?  Well, you may remember they were in the news not so long ago about their dislike for cops.  Sure, they addressed the situation, by doubling down.

So, in those areas, you have an uneasy and volatile combination of people that for some reason really dislike cops.

Why?

Blacks, well, we know why, because their experience with cops almost always involves them coming around to put Uncle Leroy in handcuffs.  As for the anarchists, I figured them out ten years ago.

Remember that blockquote at the beginning of this post?  That brings us full circle.  At the root of all of this is dope.  Blacks and white or (((white))) anarchists are mad at cops for interfering with the dope trade.  Sure, that’s not their only beef, but the dope thing is the straw that is stirring this drink.  The net consequence of the desire of their anti-cop political activity, whether they want to admit it or not, is consequence-free cultivation, manufacturing, transporting, distributing, dealing and using of what are at the moment considered to be illicit drugs.

What they don’t realize, especially the ones who make money from the dope trade, is the reason why it’s lucrative is because it’s illegal.  You know, that whole risk-reward continuum.  Take the cops away, and you take the risk away, and when you take the risk away, you take the profitability away.  If illicit drugs were legal, they’d be just another low margin commodity from which everyone on the production-distribution-retail-consumption (not much) value added chain is ekeing out an existence.

Of course, I’m trying to reason indirectly with people whose brains are on drugs.
