  • @Matty
    I've studied as much as I can regarding characteristics and patterns of thinking and behaviour typically associated with what we call 'the autistic spectrum'. I've also studied as much as I can regarding Hitler's personality, behaviour, style of thinking etc. I'm fairly convinced that any psychological or psychiatric assessment of him today would put him firmly on the autistic spectrum. In many ways fairly typical. The architectural style of his paintings, his obsession with Wagner, his love of order, system based thinking, social awkwardness, rocking back and forward, determination, loyalty and focus, a fussy eater, rigid black and white thinking, highly principled, rigid sense of morality and duty, the love of nature and traditional rural living over industrialized city life, the ranting monologues, intensive reading and researching etc etc. All in todays terms would be considered autistic characteristics.

    Autistic spectrum, nah. Wigged out on amphetamines?–Now we might be getting closer to the truth.

  • Whatever color they paint the streets or sidewalks, just be sure it’s not brass-color because all that does is make life more difficult for the evidence techs.

  • The California senator has dropped out of the Presidential race, so now I don't have a topical excuse for dusty Willie Brown anecdotes.
  • @Ozymandias
    Hard to believe that someone could look even less authentic than Hillary while 'blacking it up,' but Kamala made it happen. In other election news, we are rapidly approaching the fourth phase of impeachment attempts.

    They can't even get them to cross the road at the crosswalks

    By the same token they won’t even use sidewalks on either and/or both sides of deh skreet. They gots to walk in deh middle. (especially if it impedes the flow of Whitey the tax slave traffic on its way to work)

  • Having followed school test score statistics since 1972 and noticed that almost nothing ever changes other than that Asians are now pulling away from the field and American Indians have suddenly collapsed, I'm alway struck by the flat learning curve of public school policymakers. They constantly go through a cycle of A. Raising academic standards,...

    13. I was starting high school debate. The topic in 1972-73 was: Should the federal government fund all public school education?

    In the spring of 1973 when I was 14, I had a letter to the editor published in National Review joking about Ernst van den Haag's review of sociologist Christopher Jencks' book "Inequality," which was a meta-analysis of the "Coleman Report."

    Bravo!! How in the world did you manage to stay out of trouble through HS graduation?

    California in 1970's was hardly the California of the 2010's. It was still so solidly Republican that Ford beat Carter there in 1976.

    This is true. The same can be said for US college admissions tests and almost all selection tests
     
    No, the same cannot be said for US college admissions if "the same" is the fact that whites are avoiding college at higher rates than blacks and others. This observation was surprising to everyone. It makes a big difference IF the minority groups are encouraging their lowest performers to go for A-levels.

    However, in general these proportions tend to have minor effects.
     
    It's an empirical question. Since everyone was surprised at how much this trend exists, I would like to know if it indeed is nothing, as you suggest.

    Note, what it relevant is not the proportions but mean ‘true’ cognitive ability which we infer from these.
     
    Correct. But if there is abnormally high participation of the lowest performers in the minority groups, then the cognitive ability will be underestimated.

    Since we don’t know which Whites are applying, this is an educated guess at best.

     
    Well, if hereditarian theory has any merit, then we do know which whites are applying. It is the smarter whites. If this is not true, then the strong correlation between educational attainment and intelligence is false, at least here. Besides, the report says the biggest problem is among the poor whites, which hereditarian theory expects to be the lowest inherited IQs.

    This method adds noise to the scores, which is, in part, why they tend to have mediocre correlations with IQ. But I will look to see if I can find correlations for math and reading points scores independently or averaged.
     
    You yourself have previously blogged about research showing that the cognitive assessment tests (real intelligence tests) taken at 11 have a very high correlation with the GCSEs. So now you are saying you have also found research saying GCSEs have low correlation with IQ (now that it is more clear that black Africans outperform whites)?

    Look. If cognitive tests at 11 predict performance on GCSEs at 16, and hereditarian theory says IQ scores even at very young ages predict Educational Attainment and other outcomes in adulthood, it is self-contradicting to claim that GCSEs have low correlation with IQ. Either the papers you have now found are methodologically flawed (which means the "noise" objection to the GCSE data is another red herring) or the cognitive tests at 11 are fake (which makes IQ testing unreliable). You can't have your cake and eat it.

    As you know, I don’t like the meandering, bullshit debates. And I would like to empirically resolve this issue, one way or another.
     
    I don't like the endless debates either, but you do tend to be more eager to find more and more data when the main problem is the lack of serious analysis of the data we already have, especially when it appears to contradict the hypothesis under question.

    You have also made other statements in your posts above that are claiming that the race hypothesis - and academic hereditarians - has always been in consistency with this kind of data (including Nigerian performance in the US), but that is obviously not true. For example you now sound like you're saying Black African (genotypic) IQ could even be 90.5 (!!) and that that's consistent with Jensen and Rushton?:

    Obviously, I think an A-levelQ of 98 for Nigerians, given the degree of selection, is compatible with a Jensen-Rushton hypothesis, according to which the hereditarian Black African IQ would be around 85 to 90.5
     
    You can't just do that. If you really believe this, you have to first acknowledge that it contradicts the explicit claims of Philippe Rushton, Richard Lynn, Arthur Jensen, etc. You can't just change numbers while continuing to claim consistency since this affects the plausibility of the underlying (evolutionary) theories.

    Do you also believe that Davide Piffer's "findings" - claiming high molecular prediction of Lynn's national IQ estimates -- that you all touted so triumphantly are wrong, or maybe you don't see that you are in contradiction with that too? Have your cake. Or eat it already.

    [OK, taking a break now].

    In all too many cases of a decision to enroll in college and select a major in America, the bias towards enrollment/selection of a major is all too often driven by stupidity and/or some perverse incentive to do something that would otherwise be irrational.

    I don't think your comment makes much sense, but then again maybe you are only joking.

    If you are NOT joking, and want to go a little deeper than those photos of yours would allow, there is a wealth of literature to instruct you on the environmental influence on the development of nations. A google search will point you to it.

    What is perhaps more important: if you dismiss environmental factors, you necessarily dismiss genetic factors as well, because evolution is pushed by environmental factors, and vice-versa. This phenomenon is called gene-culture coevolution.

    Thus, unless you believe in supernatural factors (always a possibility among humans), or are joking (another human habit), you should reevaluate your assumptions.

    (65% of total pop.)

    I assume you used Wikipedia for this (?) -- but if you look, the % totals add up to > 100% -- this is often due to an inability or failure to disentangle Whites and Hispanics; other sites I checked have the same problem -- personally, I don't believe Whites are > 50% of the population of CCC -- the US Census estimates as of 1 Jul 2018 "White alone, not Hispanic or Latino, percent" at 43.2%; this is probably close -- keep in mind that there is typically low interest in and very low turnout for and/or little voting in these local elections (turnout for the 2016 presidential was < 60%) -- so an organized campaign targeting turnout among certain demographic groups could easily put someone like Becton in office -- see comment #36.

    Your silly inane statement proves the Professor's point.

    Truth is not vile or stupid. The only issue that matters here is whether or not what Rasmusen says is true.

    Is it true?

    Do you think someone who calls someone vile and stupid for telling the truth is going to provide him with impartial management and leadership? Do you think someone who calls truth vile and stupid even belongs in a College or University at all given the purpose of the institution? She has branded herself as a political hack and a partisan manager who can't be trusted to impartially execute her terms of references to improve the bottom-line of the College.

    This disgusting ugly fool should be fired, immediately, as should anyone else who demonstrates a failure to adhere to the propositions of the United States and best interests of the College.

    This Provost quite clearly despises the first amendment, because it curtails her ability to abrogate truth and to purge anyone who she regards as politically unacceptable regardless of the benefits they offer to the College. She makes her view of both the constitution and truth very, very clear, even as she pretends otherwise. Always inversion, even in the lower echelons.

    That is someone who actually shouldn't even be considered an American, let alone allowed a role of pedagogy.

    The fact you can't grasp this shows just how stupid you are. Is it comfortable sitting on the trough of the curve?

    "I guess his feelings are hurt that she called his views vile and disgusting. Wah. Wah. Who’s being emotional and overly sensitive now?"

    Is what he said true? Or is what he said false? Is truth vile and disgusting? And is that a small matter or a large one?

    Again, your cliched unlettered comment just shows how stupid and trite you are.

    "In addition, I believe Rasmussen misrepresents his twitter feed. Yes, he posts the tweet about women’s studies and home economics but he does not mention it in the body of his article. One tweet, about the relationship between gender and genius is undisputed fact, although the reasons for that fact’s existence might still be in dispute. "

    The Professor is being far to kind, and far too magnanimous. Home economics is vastly superior to women's studies, in that it offers some basic truths grounded in domestic skills, and offers the prospect of economic and marginal utility.

    Women's studies on the other hand is an artifact of the kind of economic surplus created by men like Professor Rasmusen. It's a grotesque waste of money and a ludicrous set of lies - there is a reason it is a meme for futility and uselessness.

    And I've read all the first wave feminists. You know what the difference is between the first wave and all subsequent? Those women actually understood economic hardship and had read the men they purported to criticise, and sympathised with them. Virginia Woolf actually read Dickens, and she was actually sympathetic to Coleridge.

    Women today would just urinate on Dickens in the streets.

    The Professor was vastly too kind. Women's studies shouldn't exist. Home economics however should.

    And it isn't pure snark. You what is pure snark? A reference to someone's social media accounts - that's pure snark. You know why people love Gordon Ramsay in particular? Because he calls trite feeble petty pert idiot women out for what they are.

    You're too thick to be in College, clearly.

    Rasmussen isn't being overly-emotional at all.

    He understands very clearly - there isn't going to be any amicable or convivial pretend reconciliation here.

    That disgusting fat ugly provost and all her dumb-dumb little minions should be fired by the University, and then they should actually be deported from the United States for betraying it's animating principles.

    There is going to be such a huge correction coming, when the economic edifice that supports all of this idiocy finally comes crashing to a halt.

    Women in particular, the kind of women like the Provost who preside over the mass immiseration of women of lower class are going to face the consequences of their stupidity.

    I suggest you study home ec and learn some actual skills.

    The Professor isn't going to apologise, women need to learn the true implications of the false equality they purport to enforce.

    95% of women shouldn't be in a university, or engaged in education at all. This kind of cultural marxism just demonstrates, yet again, the futility of the proposition nation. Because this ugly viper badger has quite clarly reneged upon the propositions, yet she is allowed to reside in the state.

    Well what right wing student feels like they could write anything truthful now to any of this faculty or indeed even their fellow students?

    If you don't say coloured waz Kangz, and the obese shrew is really beautiful, and the homosexuals have never committed a sexual offence against children when they were founded by Harry Hay, you will be destroyed.

    Yet none of these people will be subject to 'double blind' marking and bias appraisal, will they? What do you think would happen if you observed the statistics about Transexual suicides to a transsexual administration marking your paper? If you questioned gay mirage because of, for example, it's 100% non-monogamy rate after 5 years? Etc

    This is a cold war.

    These people need to understand that when they commit egregious offence against the good, the beautiful and the true and try to destroy people's lives they could suffer quite serious consequences and penalties.

    One could go on.

    But in essence, this is a microcosm of why this country needs to partition.

    Professor Rasmusen needs to cause as much pain for these ingrates as possible, and then add to it, until they learn to leave him alone.

    Conservatives haven't even fought any genuine battles, let alone won any. Theodore Beale has showed that simply standing your ground, works.

    There isn't enough invective possible for second and third wave feminists. And actually, where did Woolfe end up despite her wealth and Bloomsbury set friends. In a lake, with rocks in her pockets. Her putative 'Mozart's sister' despite now there being not just female equality but female supremacy has never eventuated.

    Because Professor Rasmusen is right. There never was a Mozart's sister. There never will be a Mozart's sister.

    No, no, instead female emancipation has led to two giant brown buttocks at MTV, twerking and 100+ sexual partners, and mental illness and mass immiseration.

    Feminism is economically doomed. It is demonstrably worse then communism:

    "One-third of working class women have always worked. The change brought by feminism is that now middle class and upper middle class married women work as well. And the more women that work, the more women have to work and the less time women who don't work will have with their husbands who support them, because an INCREASE in the SUPPLY of labor necessitates a DECREASE in the PRICE of labor, demand remaining constant.

    And to make matters worse, demand does not remain constant, but actually declines, because a woman who works is statistically much less likely to eventually become a wife and mother, and even when she does, she becomes one several years later and has fewer children. This means that feminism is a structural economic failure as it creates a downward-spiraling vicious circle of three easily identifiable revolutions:
    The increase in the supply of labor causes wages to go down. This is indisputable in either logical or empirical terms.
    Female hypergamy, female independence, and opportunity cost reduces the marriage rate and the average birth rate, while increased male work hours and work-related romantic opportunities increases the divorce rate. These connections are all logically sound and readily observable.
    The reduced birth rate has a negative effect on consumption, and therefore the demand for labor, 20 years before the consequent negative effects on the supply of labor can help balance it out, putting further negative pressure on wage rates. This is also indisputable, both logically and empirically.

    While this didn't have to be the case, feminism has also played a role in the debt crisis of the United States, as the Social Security system, Medicare, and Medicaid were set up structurally to be dependent upon the male breadwinner/female homemaker family model and a birthrate higher than the replacement level. Funding for those systems was doomed post-1973, necessitating either their complete restructuring or funding them through debt; obviously the latter path was the one taken, much to the detriment of those who are now on the hook for it.

    The complete systematic failure of feminism as well as every society which incorporates the concept of sexual equality is no less predictable than the complete systematic failure of socialism. Ludwig von Mises correctly predicted the failure of socialist societies in his "Economic Calculation in the Socialist Commonwealth", published only three years after the October Revolution, on the basis of socialism's intrinsic inability to establish a pricing mechanism.

    The economic flaws of feminism are no less obvious, no less fundamental and no more avoidable than the economic flaws of socialism. Feminism's structural inability to sustain wage rates and birth rates spells the inevitable doom of every feminist society, as surely as the inability to calculate prices spells the doom of every socialist society. "Gender equality" hasn't stalled because it isn't being sufficiently enforced by the government, it has stalled because it is in the process of collapsing along with the society it has infested."

    So when Woolfe was rabbiting on about 'not being able to step on the Grass' outside Baliol at Oxford, I can't imagine she ever would have envisaged a future where her intellectual forebears were childless anti-intellectuals destroying economies, histories, and societies and sexualising children, and hagioraphying homosexuals.

    Just for the edification of that stupid bint who gave her shit little comment:

    https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/may/12/lgbt-mental-health-sexuality-gender-identity

    Homosexuals do suffer from a catastrophe of mental health problems, because the condition itself is a mental illness - so why should any child or colleague be exposed to them?

    The only reason homosexuality was removed as a mental illness from the DSM was because of high intensity sustained domestic terrorism against that books editorial staff.

    I've had to lie disgustingly to get my College degrees, and regularly talk to women who can't fucking understand anything I say because they're too stupid - and that includes women with IQ's 140 plus, measured. It's only when you know what your grandfathers received and compare it to today that you can really gauge the appropriate level of disgust.

    The truth is that women are too stupid to think ahead more then 5 minutes and view the macro effects of their micro preferences, and it doesn't matter if we're talking about your local hooker or Marilyn Vos Savant.

    This provost should be fired - her entire kind, class and set are going to be responsible for the destruction of western civilization. All the Gertrude Stein types, and she seems to fit the bill based on her physiognomy regardless of a comment about her apparently being an Air Force Wife, need to be deported to Venezuela or Spain, where they can enjoy the fruits of their socialistic tendencies.

    Professor Rasmusen needs to continue doing a good job of making the prospect of the rubble bouncing and everything burning getting more and more acute.

    Because Colleges are starting to get shut - especially law schools, because of the supply-demand dynamic Theodore Beale was referring to and Glenn Reynolds has substantiated more specifically, where not only is the supply debasing in quantity, but also quality due to affirmative action and ever decreasing entrance standards.

    It's not possible to denigrate feminism enough. It's simply not possible. It was all too much for Virginia who simply walked into a pond - she couldn't see her own victimhood at the hands of the people who 'invented' her ideology which caused her depression and distress because, despite her superlative literary skills, in the end, she was just another solipsistic female. As she said, after World War I, Coleridge's 'The Nightingale' was never the same.

    Even if there is some merit to first wave feminism, we have to stamp out our desire for nurturing for the good of the next set of generations. It's just not possible to heal all the leg-cutters and philanderers and cocaine using hooker-women that grant us the privileges of their insights.

    So when I said that women like pig-face provost are causing the immiseration of generations of lower class women, I meant it.

    Because the structural economic flaw in feminism not only immiserates women who aren't College provosts economically, it also destroys their prospects for marriage and family which destroys them psychologically - and every single female academic I've ever read then says the answer is more state welfare and onerous regulations on men in the sexual market economy which is like an exponential multiplier on the bad effects.

    In the end, Feminism culminates in a vicious patriarchy - the only question is which one.

  • A ‘corporation’ is a creature of the state, requiring state permission to form and operate. As such, it should be illegal for a corporation to spend funds on absolutely anything not directly connected with its operations and profitability for the share holders. It should be illegal for a corporation to gift anything to anyone.

    The share holders can give their funds to whomever they chose. The corporation they may be a part of should not be able to spend a dime on charity or social issues.

    The problem stems from corporate taxation. Since taxation without representation is tyranny, a corp is allowed to lobby as, and begins to look like, a person. Once a corp was viewed as a person, no further restrictions could be placed on its actions.

    The solution is to stop all corp taxation, as it just adds taxes paid to the cost of their goods or services on offer. Corporations don’t pay taxes, they collect them and hide the theft by gov’t within the cost of their products and is why gov’t likes that arrangement. Once they stop paying taxes, they stop being able to lobby, give campaign contributions, etc and become unable to influence legislation as the corporate entity.

    Finland is not quite the same as other Scandinavian countries, and isn't even quite ethnically the same, having sufficient variation(basically an ancestral East Asian population) that a Nature study split them off from the European population.

    https://www.natureworldnews.com/articles/27207/20160822/finns-genetically-unique-genes-vary-significantly-europeans.htm

    Finns are now genetically considered an independent population instead of a part of the European population.

    A large team of scientists analyzed the genetic codes of more than 60,000 people from five continents in order to provide the biggest data set of its kind to the scientific community. The details of this study, published in Nature, are already providing interesting insights, including the genetic difference of the Finnish population to the rest of the European population...


    ...Population genetics are directly related to the study of history and evolution. The genetic difference of the Finn population raises many questions.

    If Finns didn't evolve from Europeans, where did they come from? How did Finnish people end up adjacent to, but separate from, the European population?
     
    This can be exaggerated, of course; there's one Unz writer who claimed that Finland was the "most East Asian of the European nations" which while somewhat true, is only in a very limited extent. But I do think that this will give them some resistance from turning into Sweden Yes; and this is borne out in my personal experience in Finland.



    An amusing derivation of this which a Finnish poster in Unz mentioned is that while the Finnish trace to East Asia is almost certainly Chinese, most Finnish who are aware of this prefer to believe that they are somehow related to the Japanese. Japanese PR is great.

    It is my understanding that Finland was at one time a colonial outpost of Sweden and currently has both a colonial legacy mestizo population with considerable amounts of Swedish genes in that woodpile as well as a recently arrived unblended Swedish diaspora. Maybe that is what’s fucking up their pound cake.

    I think the social engineers have now co-opted the courts and law enforcement to be their new proxy warriors. It is much more effective for social change. They have stacked the courts with leftist judges and prosecutors. They have seen to it that organizations like DOJ and the FBI are run (and largely staffed) by loyal proxy warriors. Sadly Republicans are oblivious to this and still harbor the illusion that law enforcement is on their side, even after the FBI-backed Russia hoax coup attempt and local police allowing Antifa to crack the skulls of Trump rally goers with totally immunity from prosecution. And in one case of conservatives fighting back with their fists against Antifa in NYC the conservatives defending themselves received multiple-year prison sentences.

    Without fail judges and prosecutors and law enforcement have all shown complete fealty to their globalist oligarch masters. The federal/state/local government-backed astronomical increase in pay and benefits and pensions to law enforcement in the past few decades has been startling. State police used to live and sleep in barracks and get crappy pay. Now they can live in upper-middle class neighborhoods and make $250k/year and get a six-figure tax-free pension at 50. And the social engineers, who like the devil plays both ends to the middle, have provided the propaganda that this eyebrow-raising trend in law enforcement pay and power is due to cops having a dangerous job or, to placate those of choleric temperament, it’s the all-powerful public unions strong-arming politicians.

    Back to the article. Fay Stender was an evil woman who committed much evil and was an accessory in the commission of so much evil. Too bad she apparently never found Christ and confessed her sins and received absolution. Let’s hope in the end she did in some small way.

    That’s the idea. Without the fearsome black hovering in the shadows to scare the whities, there might not be justification for all that money being transferred from the taxpayers to the law enforcement community.

    Suddenly, Andy Griffiths style of law enforcement might seem to be enough. But then what would become of all those unemployed enforcers and their legal people. Might they be forced to resort to crime to sustain themselves?

    I'm a Professor at a big university. During my entire 30-yr tenure, the Federal and State governments, as well as the University itself threw millions of Dollars toward people of color, annually.

    Most annoying is that up until about 2000, ALL non-whites were eligible for aid. This included the children of rich Chinese and Indian physicians, businessmen and politicians still living in China or India. It didn't matter. All that was important was that the student be a "Minority".

    This aid was supposed to be for the descendants of American slavery, not rich Chinese. This fraud, this injustice opened my eyes, and was one of the things that caused me to turn to the Alternative Right.

    Since you are a Professor, maybe the following logic shouldn’t fail you, or Steve, or Ann Coulter:

    None of the people in question were ever slaves. None of them grew up in a household with anyone who has ever been a slave (OK, maybe a few of the actual Africans, but that doesn’t help your point). In the 2nd paragraph you even use the word “non-whites”, meaning obviously that the whites are eligible for absolutely nothing.

    Do you people realize that this bullshit about being a descendant of slaves can go on forever? It’s been 164 years now! What’s the cut-off time on this? If it will get to 2,000 years, maybe only 1,000, than perhaps all of us should be getting Affirmative Action and/or special admission, as lots of us will then be “officially” descendants of slaves.

    Lots of Americans have ancestors that were indentured servants, being treated worse than the slaves. Lots have just have ancestors that lived in extremely rough conditions or were killed or maimed in wars defending (arguably in some cases, but let’s not do that now) this country.

    There’s no way, Professor, Steve, and Ann Coulter, that you don’t know that the whole thing is grossly unfair to white people and often Orientals, and it’s completely unconstitutional, at least when practiced or mandated by the US government. Why do you defend this bullshit to begin with?! The material here is just arguing over how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.*

Chinese, Japanese, Indians and others had indeed gotten some exposure to these Christian values before, even if rejecting them and killing most converts - still, the mustard seed remains...

    OT: The upcoming regicide of Dairy Queen

    A Farewell to Dairy Queens
    A spate of closures of the iconic restaurant chain has left many communities in the lurch.
    Texas Monthly |

    Loren Steffy



    On one Thursday afternoon, the front lawns of Lockney, a South Plains farming town of fewer than two thousand, were still dusted with the windblown residue of the cotton harvest. Main Street was largely deserted, and most of the storefronts were empty. Though locals long ago became hardened to news of economic woes, the latest casualty was one that few could fathom: the local Dairy Queen, the iconic fast-food mainstay of small-town Texas, closed in late October. “They came in during the night and took everything,” said Buster Poling, Lockney’s city manager.

    Now the store is a hollow shell sitting in the shadow of the town’s rusted water tower. Its red roof is marked with a teardrop-shaped scar where the DQ logo once perched. Inside, the menu boards have been stripped clean. On a side window, “Go Horns” is still written in white shoe polish, a tribute to the local high school football team, whose fans would gather at Dairy Queen after games.

    The old saying that every Texas town has a Dairy Queen is no longer true for many communities, especially the agricultural hamlets of the Panhandle, which have been disproportionately affected by a spate of closures. On October 30, 2017, Vasari LLC, which operated about 70 Dairy Queens across Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico, filed for bankruptcy and announced it was closing 29 stores, 10 of them in the Panhandle.

    In Haskell, about 150 miles southeast of Lockney, city manager Janet Moeller was so concerned when she heard about the closure in her town that she called her counterpart in Graham to see if the owners of its Dairy Queen would buy the Haskell site and reopen it. So far, nothing has come of the request. “It’s devastating for Haskell,” she said.

    Vasari’s explanations for its troubles are puzzling. Its bankruptcy filing claims that many of its restaurants are located in “prime oil country” and were hurt by declining oil prices. Yet only three—in Hobbs, New Mexico; Denver City; and Seagraves, all southwest of Lubbock—are close to the oil patch. Most are in cities like Post, Claude, and Perryton, in the heart of cotton country. Vasari also blamed its demise on Hurricane Harvey, claiming that it ruined inventory and damaged stores. But most store closures weren’t in areas battered by the storm. (Neither Vasari officials nor their bankruptcy attorneys responded to requests for comment.)

    Deep in the bankruptcy documents, in a subsequent filing, Vasari hinted at a more deep-rooted problem: while some of its stores were profitable, the company “as a whole [was] facing net operating losses that [could not] continue unabated.” That might have left the Panhandle locations particularly vulnerable. Though most seemed to be doing a healthy business, at least in the eyes of locals, supplying remote towns miles from the interstate is an expensive proposition. Vasari doubtless burned through a lot of money paying for gas, cargo space air-conditioning, and truckers’ salaries in order to get frozen burger patties and soft-serve ice cream to restaurants that weren’t exactly booming. “In small-town fast-food restaurants, the profit margins are small,” said Mary Dawson, an associate dean at the Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management, at the University of Houston.

    You don't really excerpt enough of the article to get a good idea of what it tries to say overall, and I'm not going to waste time bother reading it -- ignoring the opening bullshit about the Michael Brown case (which is however emblematic of a reprobate Establishment: "faulty assumptions about who the Bad Guys tended to be"), this seems to be the/a key passage:

    And now some police-reform advocates argue that recent technological advances mean these cameras are increasingly used not to scrutinize police, but to surveil the public. Recorded footage uploads to the cloud, allowing police to hold more images and videos, and to hold them longer.
     
    This is actually something of a legitimate concern; the same concern has been raised re AMZN's Ring doorbell video surveillance system/service -- from a civil liberties standpoint, the interesting and important questions are: When does a person have a reasonable expectation of privacy? -- And does a surveillance system unduly infringe on this reasonable expectation of privacy?

    Do you think you have a reasonable expectation of privacy when you step, uninvited, on the property of people you don’t know? Or, in the alternative, do you just not believe in the concept of private property to begin with? I also thought that appellate courts have ruled that when people are circulating at large in the public sphere, they can be audio-video recorded by others with or without their consent.

    As a property owner you ought to be able to do the above especially when the recording is done automatically, with no focus on a particular person unless they create it themselves, from a base on your own property at the boundary between indoors and outdoors. And your sharing it with the cops is between you and the cops.
    , @eah
    Do you think ... do you just not believe ...

    Dude, I did not say one word about what I believe or do not believe, including/especially in the two contexts I mentioned (police bodycams and AMZN's Ring system) -- I simply said there are reasonable questions one can ask about these surveillance systems, and these revolve around the basic question of privacy, ie when a person has or should have a reasonable expectation of privacy.

    You hysterical ass.

    I'm aware of some legal precedent about this, eg filming in a public space, where obviously there is not really a reasonable expectation of privacy -- but I'm not a lawyer and do not follow the issue.

    Police bodycams seem generally OK -- and while I don't see a big problem with AMZN's Ring system, it should be obvious that, depending on the angle and resolution of the camera, it could film eg the inside of a house across the street.

    Generally, I regard surveillance as just another aspect of anarcho-tyranny -- people should question the need for it rather than just passively accept more and more of it, or even worse demand more of it, the latter points being generally what is happening today, unfortunately.

    The people who flee will probably never return, so the best bet for these cities is to con naive young white people to move there.
     
    When I worked in Northern Virginia I was surprised by the number of young people who worked there too but lived in DC. Those of us who grew up in the area knew better than to live in costly and overcrowded DC, with its corrupt and incompetent city government and rampant crime. The young people, however, seemed to be oblivious to it all. After all, they have been taught that all black problems are the result of white racism and that they must turn a blind eye to black criminality lest they too be labeled racist.

    Plus there was the added incentive of having night spots just down the street from one's apartment, so if they met someone they wouldn't need to go far to get them back to the apartment for some late-night fun. They're at an age when they haven't realized it's not worth the risk.

    One guy used to tell me about how his car was regularly vandalized and broken into, but he was so focused on chasing tail that he hardly gave it a second thought. DC's con job certainly worked on his small brain.

    The idea that we should vote a politician in or out based on whether the economic growth rate is -0.3% vs 1.2% or whatever in the period of time around the election--as the young ladies say, I can't even.

    First of all we should be caring about the inflation-adjusted GDP growth per capita, not raw GDP growth. Growing GDP by 50% in nominal terms is not a good thing if the population increases by 70% and prices go up by 30%. We should also probably be looking at medians and not means. Doing this paints a much less rosy picture of the last 10+ years. And a much less rosy picture of the effect of mass immigration.

    Secondly the underlying fundamental economic growth rate is driven by technological and demographic factors. If the fundamentals are good the busts will be followed by booms that snap the economy back to its fundamental trajectory. Rewarding or punishing incumbents based on whether they are in the right place at the right time in the business cycle (or not) is silly.

    Thirdly elected politicians don't have a huge amount of control over the economy, particularly in the short term. Chairman of the fed is probably more powerful. President is in the top 5, sure, but unless you can identify a specific harmful or salutatory policy of his, it's silly to laud/blame them for economic changes. Even then the effect of a policy often takes > 10 years to make itself felt. MFN for China has probably been a disaster for the US economically and geopolitically but we didn't know that until recently (and we still don't know it for sure, and can never know it for sure.)

    Fourthly GDP probably correlates with quality of life but is not the same thing. For example consider the situation where you have a nice community with excellent schools and all the mothers are SAHMs. Then suppose the school system is wrecked by a refugee influx, and everyone pulls their kids out of the local schools and puts them in private schools, and all the moms get second jobs to help pay for the tuition. Sounds bad, right? In this scenario GDP goes up.

    Another example: suppose everyone is eating unhealthy restaurant food all the time because everyone works 80 hour weeks and doesn't have time to cook--great for GDP. Then everyone gets so fat that they start buying diet-advice books and get gym memberships that they never use--even better for GDP. None of this works and they have to get bariatric surgery--OMG economy is doing great. So much earning and spending. Economic miracle. Hail Ben Bernanke.

    GDP is a terrible, terrible metric.
