Eleanor French Spreitzer writes: "Why did Michael Brown, ex-head of FEMA, lose his job because of poor performance of it and yet The Mayor of New Orleans, Ray Nagin and The Governor of Louisiana, Katharine Blanco, still have their jobs. If those two airheads had gotten the people OUT OF NEW ORLEANS, as they should have - FEMA would have been inconsequential. Conservatives/Republicans are always expected to live up to and suffer if necessary; the consequences of their actions, but Liberal/Democrats are given a free pass. Could this be because Conservatives/Republicans are adults and Liberal/Democrats are over-indulged, spoiled, brats???"

Eleanor has another question: "How many displaced "Katrina Kids" from New Orleans has Teddy Kennedy's private schools taken in. Teddy Kennedy and all his kids went to fancy private schools - surely those schools have room for a few dozen of the displaced New Orleans school kids. Teddy is soooooooooooooo concerned about affirmative action and Judge Roberts' view of it. Let's see what the view of affirmative action is with the schools that formed this gloriously concerned opinion of Teddy Kennedy. How many Katrina Kids have the schools of the kids of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Charlie Rangel, Sheila Jackson Lee, Harry Bellefonte, Bruce Gordon, John Conyers, Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Cynthia McKinney, Eleanor Norton Holmes, and the Liberal Left Media in general taken in. Why do I have the feeling the answer is NONE?



I guess everybody really knows this stuff already but it is good to see it being said openly

Today, September 14, the New Century Foundation releases The Color of Crime, our relentlessly factual study of race, crime, and the criminal justice system. For anyone who ever wondered just how much more likely blacks or Hispanics are than whites to commit various crimes, the answers are here. It takes hard work to pry the facts out of the reluctant grip of federal crime databases. But the results are eye-opening:

Blacks are just 13 percent of the population but they commit more than half the muggings and murders in the country. Hispanics commit violent crimes at about three times the white rate. The proportion of blacks and Hispanics in an area is the single best indicator of how dangerous it is. The racial mix is a much better predictor of crime rates than poverty, unemployment, and dropout rates combined.

Although Jesse Jackson and Bill Cosby wring their hands over black-on-black mayhem, blacks actually commit more violent crime against whites than blacks. A black is about 39 times more likely to do violence to a white than the other way around, and no less than 130 times more likely to rob a white.

And yes, everyone's suspicions about rape are correct: Every year there are about 15,000 black-on-white rapes but fewer than 900 white-on-black rapes. There are more than 3,000 gang rapes of whites by blacks-but white-on-black gang rapes are so rare they do not even show up in the statistics.

A majority of Germans have just voted for parties of the Left. Obviously, Germany has to go further downhill before it comes to its senses.

A good short summary of the recent meltdown of the Australian Left: "His party colleagues were "sewer rats". His successor as party leader is "one of the most indecent politicians". Political journalists are "dancing bears". Mark Latham, Australia's former Labor Party leader, publishes a memoir today that makes Alan Clark's account of political life in Britain look like the literary equivalent of a Conservative ladies' tea party. The Latham Diaries is a 429-page tome packed with such vitriol that it has caused disarray within his party and left many of its key figures shocked at the scale of his betrayal. Few escape his venom, particularly Kim Beazley, who replaced Mr Latham as Labor leader... In pre-publication interviews Mr Latham, 44, continued to turn the screw on the current Labor leader. He said: "I wouldn't make him the toilet cleaner at Parliament House, let alone the Leader of the Opposition.""

Another member of the Axis of Evil surrenders?: "North Korea agreed Monday to end its nuclear weapons program in return for security, economic and energy benefits, potentially easing tensions with the United States after a two-year standoff over the North's efforts to build atomic bombs. The United States, North Korea and four other nations participating in negotiations in Beijing signed a draft accord in which the North promised to abandon efforts to produce nuclear weapons and re-admit international inspectors to its nuclear facilities.... The Bush administration had said it was prepared to take tougher measures, including freezing North Korean assets abroad and pushing for international sanctions, if the latest round of talks collapsed."

There are summaries of the Hitchens versus Galloway "debate" here and here for those who take such shows seriously. Video feed included. Why anybody would think that pitting facts against hysterical assertions would make the slightest dent in the hysterical asserters escapes me.

I have just put up here an email I received about a United Nations report that I linked to which says that European agricultural protectionism is hurting African farmers. It seems that the story is a lot more complex that that -- as one would expect of a United Nations report.

There is a new lot of postings from Chris Brand up here -- with all their usual vast incorrectness about all matters racial. Incidentally, accusations that Chris is a "racist" rather founder on the fact that he is happily married to a very bright Han Chinese lady. I am very pro-Asian myself. I have four very polite brown men (from India) living in my own large house with me. But because we are prepared to speak the truth about race, both Chris and I are still "racists" to the simple-minded propagandists of the Left.

Practically all policies advocated by the Left create poverty. Leftists get the government to waste vast slabs of the country's labour-force on bureaucracy and paperwork and so load the burden of providing most useful goods and services onto fewer and fewer people. So fewer useful goods and services are produced to go around. That is no accident. The Left love the poor. The Left need the poor so that they can feel good by patronizing and "helping" them. So they do their best to create as many poor people as possible.

The Big Lie of the late 20th century was that Nazism was Rightist. It was in fact typical of the Leftism of its day. It was only to the Right of Stalin's Communism. The very word "Nazi" is a German abbreviation for "National Socialist" (Nationalsozialistisch)
