? of the day


 On this Labor Day, when we put an emphasis on work, my question of the day is this: What do we have to work on the most to build a more perfect union? 

I have some thoughts, but I need yours.

Education.

If the past while has shown us anything, it's that there are a LOT of stupid people around and they're dragging us all down, if not outright killing us.

Telling the truth. Half the country believes in stuff that isn’t real, and get angry when told they aren’t entitled to their own set of “alternative facts.”

We can’t begin to debate solutions to problems facing the country when we don’t even agree on what the problems are, because half the citizenry are living in a manufactured delusion soldier to them by professional liars.

1. Media reform. News services that have to turn a profit will always be corrupted and end up misinforming the folks who need accurate information in order to be good citizens.

2. Election reform. As long as big money can purchase elected office, we will have elected officials whose main skill is raising a lot of money and pleasing those who have a lot of money.
Then there's all the straight up cheating and attempts to destroy democracy being run by the goddamn Republicans now. That has to go.

3. Labor equity, and incentives toward better citizenship by employers and employees as well. Which leads to:

4. Tax reform. When I was a kid, the top marginal tax rate for filers earning $200K or more was 91%. This was the governments way of saying to employers that if they wanted to keep the money they earned past a luxurious (in 1960 dollars) living, they had to plough that money back into their businesses, so their employees and customers, who made them the money in the first place, got a chunk of it.

5. Accepting reality. I know this is a heavy lift for the perpetually propagandized, but it's become a life or death question, and y'all are failing miserably at containing the death to the set of those who try to avoid accepting reality.
Back in the aughts, I came across the Guns and Dope party, whose tag line was "We'll tolerate your hobbies if you tolerate ours." and to a certain extent I still go with that idea, but there is a certain limit inherent in that idea: your hobbies can't include actually killing me if you want me to tolerate them. That's the "guns" part of the Guns and Dope Party, the way I understand it. Or it was, they seem to have morphed into garden variety libertarians these days.

6. Be kind. You would be amazed at how many problems are addressed by this corny old saw.

An educated populace is going to be fully informed about racial differences in intelligence, impulse control and propensity to violence.

A free populace will be free to discriminate on those differences.

No, but maybe it should be, since Republicans seem to view the Establishment Clause as nothing but a means of disobeying any law they don’t like. Mainly so they can legally get away with engaging in various forms of bigotry.

Maybe they’re trying to prove the kids didn’t really die and their families are merely “crisis actors,” like Alex Jones said? I’m kidding, mostly. I really hope that’s not their goal.

That said … the whole lawsuit is bonkers. If a manufacturer can be held legally liable for their customers’ wanton misuse of a completely legal product that works as intended, the whole justice system will crumble. The logic in this case is as insane as that which underpins the Texas “abortion bounty hunter” law.

There are way too many senseless killings, and America’s gun regulations are in serious need of reform. But lawsuits like this one are not the way forward. The right fix is for Democrats to undo Republicans’ packing of the courts with reactionary maniacs who have interpreted the 2nd Amendment in such an absurdly expansive way.

To make a less imperfect Union:


Institute "Discorporation": the 'death penalty' for criminal corporations. Perhaps enforced by the Texas Method of state-subsidized private bounty-hunter lawfare.

The "Honeybee Rule": any policeman who kills a civilian loses his job. No delay, no exceptions, no appeals.

The "Second Amendment Repair Act":
1. The right of the people to keep and bear arms in a well-regulated State militia shall not be infringed.
2. Well-regulated militias shall not arm those under adult age, nor arm those found guilty of treason as defined by the Constitution.
3. States have the right to enforce other militia regulations.

Note that clause 1 is a single sentence, not broken into four parts, giving equal weight to rights ('bear arms') and responsibilities ('well-regulated militia').

Another idea is to cycle circuit court judges through the supreme court to combat entrenched partisan bent.
Except that now most of the goddamn circuit court judges are Fergus appointed wingnuts, so it might not work.
The issue is coming up with justices who are competent enough to serve on SCOTUS without letting them color the court indefinitely with one ideology.
Term limits might work, but I would be concerned about losing institutional memory.
Still worth a try, in my opinion.

Anonymoid 8:41 misquotes, for it is reflexively dishonest.

For instance, there's no such thing as "extended" use of a vaccine. You get two shots, then a booster, and that's it. Horse dewormer is another story.

Of course, were the anonymoid's antivax snark valid, then we'd all have been infertile since George Washington mandated smallpox vax for his troops. But why bother arguing facts with an anonymoid troll? They do not argue to learn the truth; they argue to argue; and that's the truth.

“For instance, there's no such thing as ‘extended’ use of a vaccine. You get two shots, then a booster, and that's it. Horse dewormer is another story.”

To be fair, most of the fools prescribing themselves ivermectin are not using it on an “extended” basis, either. The major health risk is the possibility that they may overdose on it, because they bought it at a farm supply store and the doses they stock are way too big for a human, as the intended recipient is, you know, a fucking horse.

And, of course, the other danger is that ivermectin does nothing to protect you from COVID, and they’re taking instead of the main thing that will protect you: vaccines.

Ponder this… Israel also has just about the highest vaccination rate in the world. So we’ve obviously been duped, folks. The mRNA gene modification “vaccine” does not work. And with both false positives and false negatives, PCR testing doesn’t work. Masks do not work. Socialist distancing doesn’t work. Nothing works. The Plandemic Wu Flu has a 99.75% recovery rate for those under age 70, yet the peoples of the once-Free World have surrendered their freedom, their right to travel, their right to visit their dying loved ones, their economic vitality, and their once-robust supply chain. For what? I think that the people of France have the right idea. Ditto for The Netherlands. Mass protests! And if need be, change governments. Vote the bastiches out.

Ivermectin was discovered in 1975 and came into medical use in 1981.[12][13] In 2015, William Campbell and Satoshi Ōmura won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for its discovery and applications.[14] It is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines.[15] Ivermectin is FDA-approved as an antiparasitic agent.[16] In 2018, it was the 420th most commonly prescribed medication in the United States, with more than one hundred thousand prescriptions.[17] The medication is also being researched as a way to treat or prevent tropical diseases including yellow fever and malaria.

As laughable as that is, it's also an illustration of the goddamn Republican strategy going forward: they know that they can't win fair elections, so they restrict voting for anyone not known to be full MAGA, and if they can't do that, they lie that the election was fraudulent.
They are trying to destroy democracy because otherwise they will lose and lose and eventually turn into the 21st century version of the Whigs, which they will anyway, but they intend to slow down the process long enough to grift off of it a while longer.

Maybe they’ll just bring back Todd “legitimate rape” Akin and his interesting medical theories.

You see, there’s no need to worry about rape victims being forced to deliver unwanted babies because, if you “legitimately” get raped, you can’t get pregnant. Your body will “shut that whole thing down,” according to Akin, renowned experts in Republican Gynecology™

Conversely, if you are pregnant, you must not have gotten raped.

A conservative Twitter pal notes that back in 2015, before the conservative movement lost its mind, conservative writer Ben Domenech, writing for the really conservative Federalist, called it “insane” that vaccine mandates would stir any controversy:

Fundamentally, the protection against life-threatening plague is one of the original reasons government exists. We’ve had mandatory vaccines for schoolchildren in America since before the Emancipation Proclamation. The Supreme Court has upheld that practice as constitutional for over a century, and only the political fringes believe there ought to be a debate about such matters. This is one of the few areas where government necessarily exercises power [Ben Domenech, “The Insane Vaccine Debate,” Reason, 2015.02.03].

“Funny how the Taliban aren’t vaxxed.”

Well, this is the weirdest possible take. You hate vaccines, so the jihadi head-choppers are actually good now?

The Taliban are a movement that want to return to the values of the medieval era, or at least what they believe the medieval era must have been like. So no, they’re probably not vaccinated. I imagine they’re not big on any technology, except for weapons. The Taliban objected to vaccinations against polio, too, back when they were in charge the first time, which is why Afghanistan is one of the only countries in the world where polio isn’t eradicated.

But what’s your point? That this is why they won? I’m thinking the reason they won is because the alternative Afghan government the Bush administration set up to oppose them were a bunch of crooks who didn’t even bother to pay their army most of the time, so the official Afghan army were a complete joke that folded like a house of cards when asked to fight. Future congressional inquiries will also likely find that the American military contractors (Blackwater types) Bush hired to train them were also a bunch of crooks who pocketed taxpayer money but didn’t bother training the Afghan army worth a damn.

But that’s what America really is. We got lucky after WWII because all the other world powers were blown to hell. We also got scared when the Ruskies launched Sputnik and spent a bunch of money and invested in science, technology and engineering and became a singular world power but that generation that built a bunch of cool stuff and actually trusted science is dying and not being replaced. Ignorance, racism and superstition isn’t a flaw in America, it’s a feature. We have bridges collapsing here, that’s third world country type stuff. Half the country thinking an ignorant New York conman reality tv star is the best we can do is no surprise to me, in fact I was counting on it maybe not so soon. I always thought Kim Kardashian was going to be our first reality tv star president but I still think she and Kanye will be living at 1600 Pennsylvania soon.🀷🏾‍♂️ Can’t hate something for being what it is.

Hey, give Abbott a break. He’s only been in office for six years! And he’s been really busy with super-important things like “backing the blue,” fighting critical race theory in elementary schools, arming school teachers, denying climate change, stopping Democrats from voting, and, of course, banning abortion. Oh, and also, he’s been extremely busy NOT doing anything about Texas’ broken power utilities, so Texans can continue to enjoy the privilege of freezing to death if ever there’s a cold snap.

Anyway, this hot air he’s blowing about “eradicating rape” will inevitably turn out to be something terrible, such as: “I will eliminate rape by keeping transexual perverts out of public bathrooms,” through the public bathroom law Texas Republicans already passed.

We have bridges collapsing here, that’s third world country type stuff.

When old bridges are collapsing, it's because maintenance and replacement was subordinated to subsidizing blacks and browns.

When brand-new bridges are collapsing here, it's because diversity was assumed competent to design and build them (FIU).

This is what a black Mensa member looks like:

PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, MD — A 29-year-old Mt. Rainier man who poured lighter fluid on a woman he forced into a dog crate and threw another woman over a guardrail will serve 30 years in prison for assault and false imprisonment.

In May, Tiroune Oates pleaded guilty to two counts of second degree assault and one count of false imprisonment in two separate cases – all misdemeanor charges that would have carried up to 4.5 years in prison.

However, after a three-hour sentence hearing, Oates instead received 40 years, with all but 30 years suspended, the Office of the Prince George's County State's Attorney said in a news release.

So they have trained dogs to detect the presence of covid on face masks, with accuracy in the high nineties, in the same ballpark as lab testing. When the dogs sniff a mask that has covid on it, they sit down and then are rewarded with a toy to play with.
I wonder whether they could be trained to sniff out those who spread covid lies and just piss on their feet?

The gusset plates weren't designed right, and nobody put any money into re-analyzing old work for flaws.  The engineering resources weren't there.  At least it took 40 years, instead of going down before it opened.

Those gusset plates could have been reinforced, but were not because nobody knew they needed to be.  When old bridges are collapsing, it's because maintenance and replacement was subordinated to subsidizing blacks and browns.

You have very fanciful ideas about how much money gets paid out on welfare, or any government benefits, really.

We are living through a new gilded age of billionaires, and if there is not enough money to fix bridges, it’s because the government is not taking enough money out of pockets of the rich, not because is putting too much into the pockets of the poor.

This happens because redneck morons keep voting for the tax-cutters’ party, because the tax-cutters always double-pinky swear promise to be extremely abusive to brown people, and redneck morons would prefer a racist country to a functional one where the government doesn’t let the bridges fall down.

The average annual fiscal cost of each black is -$10,016, the average Hispanic is -$7,298.

There are roughly 46.9 million blacks in the US, for a total fiscal impact of -$469 billion per year.

There are roughly 60.6 million Hispanics in the US, for a total fiscal impact of −$442 billion per year.

The total fiscal impact of blacks and browns is -911 billion per year.

The US infrastructure deficit is 2.59 trillion.  The US could pay this with less than 3 years of the net fiscal cost of non-Whites.

We are living through a new gilded age of billionaires, and if there is not enough money to fix bridges, it’s because the government is not taking enough money out of pockets of the rich, not because is putting too much into the pockets of the poor.

I just proved the exact opposite.  The infrastructure deficit is a 40-year thing; we could have fixed it 13 times by now if the money hadn't been spent on parasites.

It's because our "educational" establishment wants to incorporate "social justice" into everything, including mathematics instruction.

That means making pretty much everything a "story problem".  Know what the less-intelligent are particularly bad at?  Reading text and extracting relevant facts from it, then processing those facts to get correct answers.  They're far better at handling "13 + 19 = ____".

But group members have said one of their goals — addressing inequities in math education — is to deal with the way historical, cultural and societal biases influence which children are viewed as being good at math.

One of the main ways researchers suggest schools do that? Keep students who are at different skill levels in the same classrooms — a concept sometimes called “heterogeneous learning” — for longer. That’s why the pathways plan doesn’t fork in different directions until grades 11 and 12.

Position papers by a national association for math educators that were shared by the education department argue “tracking” students — sorting advanced ones into separate classes — results in the over-representation of white and wealthy students.

“Those that have been privileged by the current system must be willing to give up that privilege for more equitable schooling,” one of the papers reads.


In other words, those "privileged" by being fast learners must be dumbed-down so they're not so unequal.  Those fast learners tend to be wealthy, because fast learners tend to become wealthy.  And fast learners trend strongly White and Asian.

It's just anti-White hatred, cloaked in the language of "equity".  Stuart can build LaQuan a house, but he can't learn for LaQuan, so Stuart must be penalized.

Because admissions departments prefer foreigners paying out-of-state tuition over in-state White males, and it's hard for Americans to make a living and have a family on graduate student stipends and un-tenured teaching pay.

And why wouldn't they, when universities have cut graduate stipends so that their purchasing power can barely achieve a subsistence standard of living?  Grad school is for those willing to work for slave wages and THEN try to land a tenured teaching position, except for those lucky enough to work for a company which provides tuition reimbursement.

Universities can do this because they have an endless supply of foreigners willing to come in and slave away for the promise of US citizenship.  US citizens go to work after their BSc because it's still a ticket upward.

Certainly do.  A BSc, as a matter of fact.  I took AP calculus and AP physics my junior year of HS, took university classes my senior year and was out in 7 semesters as a full-time student.

nor have a job and blame others for "quotas".

Why would I need a job?  I've been retired for 9 years.  I won't tell you what the assessor thinks my house is worth, but even if I didn't have another cent I could sell it and live in moderate luxury for the rest of my life.

What I blame for "quotas" is the situation of the young, White male who is stuck in the "gig economy" and is denied any security, ability to accumulate wealth or support a family.  You're one to talk, BusDriverX; your skin color gives you all the security you could want, and it's totally invisible to you.  YOU are sacrosanct.

The morning of 9-11 I was living in San Francisco, the only time I ever lived there and only for about six months at that, and I was a little late for work so I walked down 24th st. to the BART station in a hurry. I hadn't heard anything from any media yet, and the newspaper vendor had a strange look on her face when I bought a San Francisco Chronicle from her for the ride across the bay.
Once on the train, things started to get weird. As the train pulled out of 24th st. station it sort of stalled and sat there for a while. That's when I heard someone in the seat ahead of me say "...into the World Trade Center." and I knew something bad was happening.
The train did the same stopping in the dark thing before coming into and again upon leaving the 16th st. station, and as we started again the announcer said on the intercom "We will not be stopping at Civic Center, if your stop is Civic Center, get off at Powell st. and a shuttle will take you back to your destination."
Then the train accelerated so hard that it pushed me back into my seat, and we went through Civic Center station at around 70 MPH.
There were delays at almost every station as the BART folks tried to get trains on the proper tracks given the stops they were avoiding, and at one point we sat motionless for a few minutes at the bottom of the bay in the transbay tube.
Needless to say, I was late to work, and my boss, who also lived in SF said "So I take it you've had an interesting train ride." because the Civic Center closure had been on the news; they were afraid that city hall was in danger.
Two days later, one of our drivers went off on a customer after doing his delivery, the customer was a Lebanese family who ran a grocery store in the lower Haight, and the driver yelled at them, called them terrorists, and told them to go back where they came from.
The owner of our business fired him on the spot when he returned and told him he had a lot of nerve to say such things to a family who were at this point fifth generation San Franciscans who have run a successful business for decades employing other San Franciscans and by the looks of it, he (the driver) hadn't done jack shit.
It was a tense moment, but it made me very loyal to Bill Viebrock, the owner and founder of our business.

It almost certainly isn’t the case that vast numbers of “better jobs” were suddenly created, and that’s why it’s now hard to fill lower-paying retail/service jobs. I wish this were true, but I don’t believe it is, any more than I believe the typically mean-spirited conservative explanation that unemployment benefits are just too darn generous and are encouraging the “lazy” poor folks to stay home and play Xbox.

More likely, the overall supply of labor decreased because a number of married women quit their jobs, or scaled their workloads way back, so that they could stay home with their kids who were sent home to do remote learning, and many of them haven’t yet made their way back into the workforce. So there’s a hole in the labor pool.
