  • School considers cancelling AP classes because too many white students are succeeding

    Nope, Asians are even less equal than whites in the “social justice” hierarchy.

    Spread the failure.

  • Study: White and black children biased toward lighter skin (Whites racist due to 'entitlements'?)

    I just always figured black kids wanted to be “light black” in the same way that white girls tan to be as “dark white” as possible.

    Maybe it comes from anchoring, and everybody wants to shift to the middle and away from extremes, or maybe girls are just being superficial girls (and some vain guys follow along as society becomes more and more effeminate).

    If you’re in a free state, fill out the number in your household. No groupthink info for race-baiting, preference-pushing, set-aside-seeking parasites and their racial spoils system.

    If you’re in an urban failure, just trash it. They’re losing population but making up for it in gerrymandering, illegal aliens, and vote fraud. The sooner they lose reps the better.

    As an FYI, the Nikkei currently stands around 10,000, roughly even with the DOW. DOW’s peak was 14,000. Any guess on the Nikkei’s?

    It peaked at 40,000. In 1990. Since then Japan has been in a “Lost Decade”, which is now a full 2 decades long. They’ve passed about a dozen or so “stimulus” packages.

  • Firewall for Windows 7

    BobbyT to doc1019

    I wouldn’t consider the firewall alone to be adequate. It’s basically a shield against someone scanning for open computers to attack, but I don’t believe you’re secure from malicious scripts and stuff like that from web pages you visit.

    If you have a home network and are behind a router (wireless or just the kind you plug your network cables into), that’s the best possible firewall, because your computer is literally invisible to outsiders. Instead of having addresses to the outside world, your computer(s) would just have internal ones the router uses. To the world you’d just show up as a router, which makes no sense to attack since it doesn’t execute code like a computer. Legitimate info is routed appropriately by the router, but any attack is just like junk mail being delivered to a hotel lobby.

    Of the 3 free programs I recommended, I use Avast. It was literally a several minute process. I looked through the options to see that it was set up to update automatically and not harass me about whatever, and haven’t given a second thought to it since.

    It sits there doing its thing, updating as necessary, without any action on my part. If I hit a questionable link it’ll intervene by popping up a message saying it’s found something, and I continue about my business with the crisis averted.

    Are you looking for a firewall, or just virus/trojan/malware protection?

    Avast, Avira, and AVG are 3 free programs that do a fantastic job of keeping your computer clean. I use Avast, and it’s a 1-time install with automatic updates and no interference.

    I’m going to keep saying it until you guys get it right and quit asking. It’s very simple. If you live in:

    Free states - fill out the number who live there. No additional info for the race-baiting, government preference pushing crowd to use.

    Urban failures - trash the thing. They’re losing population but making up for it with illegal aliens and vote fraud. The sooner they lose reps the better.

  • Two reasons for a dying Detroit: Monica Conyers convicted felon; Rep. Rashida Tlaib rabid Marxist

    Here’s another symptom:

    Below are actual lines from the head of the Detroit Public Schools, Otis Mathis. Not casual notes either, these are verbatim from mass emails to parent and teacher groups.

    “If you saw Sunday’s Free Press that shown Robert Bobb the emergency financial manager for Detroit Public Schools, move Mark Twain to Boynton which have three times the number seats then students and was one of the reason’s he gave for closing school to many empty seats.
    Do DPS control the Foundation or outside group? If an outside group control the foundation, then what is DPS Board row with selection of is director? Our we mixing DPS and None DPS row’s, and who is the watch dog?”

    There are another 6 or so paragraphs/sentences (strings of words?) that go about like that, with a plea at the end to contact the media, the pastors, and the “Superintended”.

    He “graduated” from a Detroit high school with a 0.98 GPA, and then went to Wayne State, the only public college in Detroit, a city he’s never left. He spent several years there suing over their basic English proficiency test, required for graduation.

    The lawsuits didn’t work, so he stayed for 15 (fifteen) years and then quit. After he was elected to the school board, in 2007 Wayne dropped the requirement, so he “applied for” his degree. He now holds a BS in “Criminal of Justice” (his words).

    His current approach to fixing Detroit consists of several ideas:

    First, reinstating the recently ended “social promotion” program of giving diplomas to kids who couldn’t read, because not graduating calls attention to a student’s illiteracy. The program was ended by the emergency manager appointed by the state to make sure changes were being made.

    Second, fighting any outside oversight. There had been talk of the state taking control of the schools, but Mathis didn’t feel the 25% graduation stat was a good enough threshold. He was asked at a forum if every single student failing out would justify oversight, and answered no.

    Third, he’s vigorously pursuing additional federal money. Detroit already spends $13,000 per kid per year, vs. a national average of $8-9000, but apparently its teachers’ unions are the best place to throw that “stimulus” education money. There are 90,000 students left in Detroit, and the $100 billion schools are supposed to “compete” for should just be given to a place that really needs it.

    If you live in:

    Free states: fill in number of people, that’s it. No other info for the race-baiting, government preferences crowd to use.

  • "Obamacare" Intrade contracts just collapsed to 35 from 70+ in biggest short term swing of the year.

    BobbyT to cmj328

    I find that hard to believe. Only $300 to market order it 25%?

    I know Intrade markets are thin compared to real financial markets, but surely it’s gotten enough attention over the last few years, and the healthcare takeover a front-and-center enough issue, that there should be more liquidity than that.

    Guess we’ll see tomorrow.

    Bit it up and *offer* it down.

    And it takes money to do that, the same as if you try to move Intel stock or oil or any other market. Of course, Intrade contracts are going to be a lot less liquid.

    Apparently in 2004 someone market ordered Bush presidential contracts all the way to zero to try to manipulate the market. The article I read was saying this would’ve taken hundreds of thousands of dollars to do.

    Naturally it rebounded, and apparently came all the way back to where it was. So basically somebody just gave everyone else incredibly cheap buys—the same as happens when someone tries to artificially move any other market.

    Free states: just age and nothing else. Don’t give the gerrymandering, race-baiting, government preferences crowd any data to use.

    Urban failures: trash it. They’re losing population as it is, but make up for it in vote fraud. The sooner they lose reps the better.

    Your video is titled “Untitled.avi”, so it won’t show up on searches of related videos. Perhaps rename it?

    Also, there’s a TON of material to choose from. Perhaps as a second video you could add more examples, but with more concise clips for each (Bawney Fwank!) to make it more content dense.

    It’s not just a few exceptions here and there, they’re rotten to the core.
