    It is strange: Jews have been disliked everywhere and in all times. The dislike appears in odd places. I was astonished to find that my Nepalese trekking guides were intensely hostile to Jews. They said that Jews (actually Israelis in most cases I think, but the Nepalese do not seem to make the distinction) were...

    " how long would he keep his job"

    I thought Fred retired and moved to Mexico almost 20 years ago. What is his job? Where does he work?

    By “job” I mean this column of his. I don’t think he’s still be on unz.com if he were a reincarnation of Julius Streicher.

    OK. I suppose there's room for all sorts of thinking here, then. I think that Fred writes to amuse himself and doesn't really care how his writing is received by readers.

  • @Svigor

    Since the writer of this particular piece of dreck is obviously a novice at lining up thoughts and assigning words to them, charity demands a D+.
     
    Fred's schtick seems to be to get 3/4s of a way through a thought, then move on to the next. If you dot all the i's and cross all the t's and carry out the 3/4 thoughts to their 1.0 conclusions and connect all the dots, you get Julius Streicher.

    Fred, you know we love most of your columns, but this one is deeply flawed:
     
    I don't. I find him rather tiresome. He just stirs the shit and collects a check (I assume he's getting paid here, even if only indirectly by gaining a wider audience). I usually don't bother reading his stuff.

    Fred is not talking to counter-Semites, he is subverting the normies. My take is that Fred goes 3/4 of the way through the topic, and leaves the i dotting and t crossing to his readers. What you figure out for yourself sticks better than what you’re told. And after all, how long would he keep his job if he openly went Julius Stretcher?

  • @Autochthon
    I agree it is not a thing, but I would point out it's the Jews who tried to make it one, not us. I'd also point out Rubio is misguided to claim arrogance is incompatible with a theiertical "Judea-Christian" [sic] heritage: Judaism is inherently arrogant. One of it's most basic tenets (arguably the most basic) is that a small group of nomads in the desert were singled out by the divine creator of the universe, told they were better than everyone else and the only people he really gives a shit about, and that they are therefore entitled – indeed obligated – to run around killing other people, taking their stuff, occupying their lands, ravaging their women, and so on. The Jews have dutifully kept on doing this reprehensible behaviour with not one iota of shame or self-awareness ever since.

    Now this self-appointed female rabbi !as has been noted already, females cannot be rabbis) purports to lecture Christians about how much Judaism demands that Jews do all in their power to save lives? Has she even read the Old Testament (there's a term that really pisses Jews off, too, to my great delight)?

    Arrogance, indeed.

    A question: What could possibly be the four major religions in Hollywood c. 1950? Only Judaism and Christianity come to mind. Are you perhaps conflating denominations with religions?

    The four major religions, according to the movie were Protestant, Catholic, Eastern Orthodoxy, and Judaism.

    So, as I suspected: two religions, and three denominations of one being called religions. Typical Jewish understanding and treatment of Christianity from the Coens (whom I do concede are damned good at making movies).

    They're the four major religions of Hollywood.

    Here is a counter to Vox Day's position.

    Dennis Prager, 2004

    The United States of America is the only country in history to have defined itself as Judeo-Christian. While the Western world has consisted of many Christian countries and consists today of many secular countries, only America has called itself Judeo-Christian. America is also unique in that it has always combined secular government with a society based on religious values.

    But what does "Judeo-Christian" mean? We need to know. Along with the belief in liberty — as opposed to, for example, the European belief in equality, the Muslim belief in theocracy, and the Eastern belief in social conformity — Judeo-Christian values are what distinguish America from all other countries. That is why American coins feature these two messages: "In G-d we trust" and "Liberty."

    Yet, for all its importance and its repeated mention, the term is not widely understood. It urgently needs to be because it is under ferocious assault, and if we do not understand it, we will be unable to defend it. And if we cannot defend it, America will become as amoral as France, Germany, Russia, et al.

    First, Judeo-Christian America has differed from Christian countries in Europe in at least two important ways. One is that the Christians who founded America saw themselves as heirs to the Hebrew Bible, as much as to theirs. And even more importantly, they strongly identified with the Jews.

    For example, Thomas Jefferson wanted the design of the seal of the United States to depict the Jews leaving Egypt. Just as the Hebrews left Egypt and its values, Americans left Europe and its values (if only those who admire Jefferson would continue to take his advice).

    Donate to JWR



    Founders and other early Americans probably studied Hebrew, the language of the Jewish Bible at least as much as Greek, the language of the New. Yale, founded in 1701, adopted a Hebrew insignia, and Hebrew was compulsory at Harvard until 1787. The words on the Liberty Bell, "Proclaim Liberty throughout all the land . . . ," are from the Torah. Vast numbers of Americans took Hebrew names — like Benjamin Franklin and Cotton Mather (kattan in Hebrew means "little one" or "younger").

    The consequences included a strong Hebrew Bible view of the world — meaning, in part, a strong sense of fighting for earthly justice, an emphasis on laws, a belief in a judging, as well as a loving and forgiving, G-d, and a belief in the chosenness of the Jews which America identified with.

    The significance of this belief in American chosenness cannot be overstated. It accounts for the mission that Americans have uniquely felt called to — to spread liberty in the world.

    This sense of mission is why more Americans have died for the liberty of others than any other nation's soldiers.

    It is why those who today most identify with the Judeo-Christian essence of America are more likely to believe in the moral worthiness of dying to liberate countries — not only Europe, but Korea, Vietnam and Iraq. That is why America stands alone in protecting two little countries threatened with extinction, Israel and Taiwan. That is why conservative Americans are more likely to believe in American exceptionalism — in not seeking, as President Bush put it, a "permission slip" from the United Nations, let alone from Europe.

    The second meaning of Judeo-Christian is a belief in the biblical G-d of Israel, in His Ten Commandments and His biblical moral laws. It is a belief in universal, not relative, morality. It is a belief that America must answer morally to this G-d, not to the mortal, usually venal, governments of the world.

    That is why those who most affirm Judeo-Christian values lead the fight against redefining marriage. We believe that a pillar of Judeo-Christian values is to encourage the man-woman sexual and marital ideal, and to provide children with the opportunity to benefit from the unique gifts that a man and a woman give a child, gifts that are never replicable by two men alone or two women.

    That is why those who most affirm Judeo-Christian values are unmoved by the idea that the war in Iraq is moral if Germany, France, China and Russia say so, but immoral if they oppose it. We ask first what G-d and the Bible would say about liberating Iraq, not what Syria and other members of the U.N. Security Council say.

    That is why those who most affirm Judeo-Christian values believe that war, while always tragic, is on more than a few occasions a moral duty. Nothing "Judeo" ever sanctioned pacifism. Of course, the Hebrew Prophet Isaiah yearned for the day that nations will beat their swords into plowshares. But another Hebrew Prophet, Joel, who is never cited by those who wish to read the secular value of pacifism into the Bible, said precisely the opposite: "Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears. Let the weakling say, 'I am strong!'"

    And that is why those who want Judeo-Christian values to disappear from American public life affirm multiculturalism, seek to remove mention of G-d from all public life, and make Christmas a private, not a national, holiday.

    The battle over whether America remains Judeo-Christian or becomes secular like Europe is what this, the Second American Civil War, is about.

    When, exactly, did the USA define itself as “Judeo-Christian”? Which Founder used that expression? Perhaps in the 19th Century Abe Lincoln or Ralph Waldo Emerson coined the term? No? Was it part of Teddy Roosevelt’s Progressivism, or passed as part of his cousin FDR’s New Deal? Still no?

    Because people who build and maintain civilization are not wolves, but sheepdogs. That’s what some of you young hotheads don’t understand - if you turned whites into blacks, what would have been the point of “making America white again”?

    You may think that having whites-only is enough, but at the end of the day what makes life pleasant and, better still, lead to loftier things is civilization.

    When I was a boy in the San Fernando Valley, my German neighbor was a quiet, pleasant, well-educated engineer, the very model of a civilization builder. Read books in four or five languages, very civic minded, and tolerant of the curious little boy who pestered him. When I came home after military service, he told me about his time in the U.S. Army during WW2. He tortured Germans who were thought to have information that we wanted. No wooden wedges under the fingernails or any of that gothic stuff, he just played bad cop to an American interrogator’s good cop. Fists and boots only. The good cop would hear the ruckus while he was out of the cell getting some coffee, rush back in to pull my neighbor off the prisoner, and get the needed information from him.

    The point is, good civilized men need to do the dirty work themselves if they don’t want things to get out of control. If you’re too good to kick the crap out of some rascal in a measured manner, then some thug without a conscience will gladly do it for you.

    Haiti had sent 15,000 people. They “all have AIDS,” he grumbled, according to one person who attended the meeting and another person who was briefed about it by a different person who was there
     
    .

    OK, maybe this is fake news and perhaps Trump never said what was alleged, or someone has put a twist on what he actually said to make him sound like a dick, but then again, lets just suppose for a moment that it is true that he said this.

    Part of the power of the presidency is the power to obtain information that is not available to press researchers, or to obtain it before it is published, and for that reason it is dangerous to second guess the POTUS, because you may not be in possession of all the facts.

    So Trump could certainly find out exactly what number of these 15,000 Haitians had tested positive for HIV during the admission process, bearing in mind that most of the arriving Haitians who did not have previsa medical examinations approved by the US embassy in Port au Prince will have arrived overland at the southern border, most of them coming from Brazil, and will have been held in detention centers in California after their arrival, during which time they will have been subject to medical examinations by US government medical personnel.

    He would also be able to access information on the cost to the US for antiviral drugs provided to Haitian immigrants and refugees via Medicaid, prison medical services, and so on.

    I am pretty confident that not all of these 15000 Haitians have AIDS, not even 50%, not even 25%, so if Trump said this, he was wrong. Of course perhaps it was just a macabre joke on his part, because when AIDS was first discovered in about 1980 and very little was known about it, it was identified as a disease of homosexuals and Haitians.

    However, all of this does nothing to dispel the notion that Trump is prejudiced AGAINST black people. This will do nothing to help his future election prospects and the prospects of those whom he supports. If he said it, he should not have said it even as a joke, because he should have known that someone would leak, and it would not be taken as a joke/

    On the other hand, given Trumps apparent lack of detailed knowledge on health policy and health-related issues, and the possibility that he has some dementia, it is entirely possible that the POTUS is making decisions that affect peoples lives without being in possession of the full facts or understanding them if he does have them.

    And on a slightly different tack, if he does not fully understand the functions of the visa process in Port au Prince, does he fully understand the functions of the US embassy in Tel Aviv?

    All sensible people, including sensible Black people, are prejudiced against Blacks, whether they admit it or not. Where do they choose to live? Where do they choose to send their kids to school? Away from Blacks, that’s where.

    No, the best USN recon plane was the PB4Y, known to the Army as the B-24. Faster, longer-ranged, higher ceiling, and much more heavily armed. PB4Ys were used mostly, if not entirely, in the Pacific. Over the Atlantic, B-24s were flown by the USAAF or the RAF.

    There were German U Boats up and down the US East Coast and Gulf Coast. They sank shipping right off the Jersey Shore, and in the Gulf Coast. German u boats even penetrated and attacked shipping in the St. Lawrence Gulf: See here. Because Admiral King hated the British and refused convoy escorts, shipping was an easy target for U Boats with the US East Coast non-blackout lights providing easy illumination for target ships at night. Being silhouetted meant being a sitting duck.

    It wasn't until late 1943 and 1944 that improved radar, sonar, long range Naval air reconnaissance, and convoying produced attrition on the U boat force making them no longer able to operate in the US East Coast, Gulf Coast, Caribbean, and so on.

    Today, politicians are no better than prostitutes. They will do anything for the money, even sell out the nation. Trump is no different. He is in it for the money. His "Make America Great Again" slogan was just that; a slogan. He is the master of the art of dealing and he dealt a crooked hand to the gullible nation. He has been dealing out more crooked hands ever since his inauguration. Every time he says "Make America Great Again," he pulls an Ace from the bottom of the deck. Everything he has done has been for the benefit of Wall Street and Israel or am I being redundant?

    President Eisenhower warned the nation against the power of the Military-Industrial-Complex (MIC). Both the Wall Street and Israel control the Military-Industrial-Complex and the MIC along with the Congress and the intelligence community control the rest. We are nothing but hostages to the cruel circumstances.


    If Trump goes, one imagines, he will not go quietly.
     
    And it is as should be. Who in the present political system has the moral superiority to demand that Trump leave the office to which he was properly elected by the people, Russia-Gate charade not withstanding. We had a choice of electing lesser of the two crooks. We chose Trump. In a democracy we live by our decisions. We are quick to impose democracy on other nations but don't follow our own rules.

    Since the election the US has spent millions of dollars on frivolous law suits and investigations without any results. Innocent people are trapped and convicted by the same people who are supposed to protect them and we jump up and down, wave our hands, and shout at the top of our voice that our democracy is working. All the while the world is laughing at us.

    Regarding Richard Nixon: In 1952, Senator Nixon resigned his office early in order that his successor, Republican Senator-Elect Thomas Kuchel, would gain seniority over the other freshman Senators. In doing so, Nixon lost his Senatorial pension because he did not serve two full years. Dick Nixon knew how to take one for the team.

The Foreign Office replied: “We certainly do not exclude any unattributable propaganda or psywar [psychological warfare] activities which would contribute to weakening the PKI permanently.

    China permits family-based citizenship as pretty much expected. Not sure where you're coming up with the ideas. And no one can vote in "local elections," such a concept doesn't really exist, although a handful of white foreigners have become Communist Party members which allows them to participate in local selection of officials.

    There's no racial rules in Chinese immigration law, obviously. But there are things which could be used as such, such as family-favoritism(if your family was from China, immigration is easier). Anyway, Daniel A Bell is a citizen and while he complains about China not importing fast enough, he mentions that there's really nothing preventing whites from being citizens.

    However, you have to renounce any other citizenships - dual citizenship is prohibited except on a case-by-case basis(like being a British citizen in Hong Kong, those are allowed). This is usually a nonstarter for any American.

    The rules are:

    1) Have Chinese national close relatives(marriage, usually) AND Have settled in a part of China

    The revolutionary tax issue was about taxation WITHOUT representation in Parliament.
     
    As a historical fact, this is accurate, but the way you are spinning this to counter what I said is BS on a massive scale.

    You talk about taxes being necessary to bolster a society and provide a high standard of living. Absolutely true, but that has nothing to do with representation. The British Crown was already providing all such services to Americans and more for the "meager" taxes they were able to collect from the colonists. How do you think they managed to maintain an infrastructure and military for the Indian Wars? And for the general expansion of colonists across the frontier? None of the returns from these investments were flowing back to the mother country, so denying representation was not the massive crime that many of you think it was. (Though on a matter of principle, I'm with the Revolutionaries.)

    Most of your villainous immigrants have no prayer of becoming citizens and even getting a vote, let alone representation in Congress. So by your own standards, they are within their rights not to pay taxes. But in the real world (unlike the fantasy tinseltown you inhabit), most of them do, at likely larger rates than natives, because unlike natives, they are almost all employed and get an income.

    I already know it much better than you do. Just living in the country doesn't make you automatically knowledgeable; it just makes you an entitled a******e. Magic Dirt, as many of you would call it!

    “No taxation without representation” was a primary slogan of the Revolutionaries. Their grievance was exaggerated because the taxes demanded did not cover the costs to Britain of defending the colonies, but that was still their grievance, no BS. My own view is that the colonial landowning elites were put out at having lower social status than their English counterparts, despite having far larger estates or fortunes in many cases, and so they manipulated the masses for their own ends.
    During the Revolution, the revolutionary legislatures established taxes (very unpopular with the non-revolutionaries, who regarded the legislatures as usurpers), and once the Revolution was won, the states, now legitimate, passed and enforced their tax laws. In cases where the taxed felt themselves unrepresented in the legislatures, there was even armed resistance, but by and large, the tax issues were resolved by having representation. Until the South/tariff issue came up later.
    Class is over.

    As for foreigners, taxpayers or not, they have no right to even be here. It is a privilege. Given the presence of entitled a*******s like yourself among them, perhaps they’ve too much privilege. The Magic Sewage has failed.

    Then that's what you should do with your current crop of immigrants, legal or otherwise. Give them representation pronto! (By your own logic.) If you feel they don't pay taxes (untrue, but I'll play along), it's perhaps because they resent their "lower" status vis-a-vis natives.

    About what proportion of africans in america subsist on either welfare or corporate/government diversity make-work jobs? A huge proportion,

    We've been over this issue before in these fora. About 5% of the personal income flow to black Americans is accounted for by excess draws on welfare programs for the non-elderly poor. (Their propensity to draw on Social Security and Medicare is lower than the national mean due to them having a lower life expectancy).

    And, no, you could never subtantiate the contention that a 'huge proportion' of American blacks (who make up 11% of the workforce, not 80%) have 'diversity make-work' jobs. Over 80% of those of the black workforce are employed in hourly jobs and over 80% are employed in the private sector.

    The private sector has affirmative action too. Recall that the average Black with an income of $75,000 has a lower credit rating that the average White with an income of $30,000. That’s a clear indication of promoting Blacks well beyond their abilities.

    There are natural experiments here in the US examining a range of immigration scenarios. There is a LA on the one hand and places like West Virginia on the other. I think we don't have to make any crazy assumptions to imagine what Whitopia might look like. West Virginia is about as white as it was 50 years ago and dirt poor, riddled with drugs and chronically on the verge of collapse without a constant infusion of federal tax dollars. There is a reason for the nightmare traffic jams and rocketing home prices of the LA area - it's a desirable place to live for most people. Not so with places like West Virginia. Now, you may aesthetically dislike the babble resulting from mass immigration, but I'd argue that bread and butter issues take precedence for the vast majority of folks. It's easy to strike a romantic tone about an America without Silicon valley or NYC but, by that standard, the Whitopia of rural Russia or Belarus, or Moldova or Ukraine must be a beautiful thing. Surveys of global happiness haven't borne that out.

    Your comparisons are invalid. A proper natural experiment needs to limit the variables. Pairing L.A. with West Virginia or Ukraine introduces too many. Try comparing today’s L.A. to L.A. in 1957. That was a high trust, low crime city. My house had louvered windows, and every little boy knew how to slip them out of their place and get in the house, should he be locked out. Nobody had deadbolts or alarms. When somebody stole eleven dollars worth of groceries out of my dad’s unlocked car, two cops came to the house to take a report, so rare were such crimes.
    When I last checked, about 2011, my high school was graduating one out of eight students. In the 1950s, almost everybody got their diploma.
    L.A. did have its home grown minorities then, more than many places, but White supremacy was the rule, and even the Diversity were better off for it.

    If your standard of happiness is having the coolest phone and lots of debt, then being dominated by Silicon Valley and NYC is a good thing, but you don’t need to be a romantic to doubt that e-toys and debt servitude are things to wish for.

    No, I fully understand your concerns. I certainly don't want a flood of Middle Eastern immigrants coming here...but they are coming here because through welfare and entitlements, the Left has rolled out the red carpet for them. We cut off those things, and immigration will slow to a trickle. It will slow furthermore when, as libertarians want, we aggressively expand our capital to foreign lands and make them more productive.

    With the push and pull factors for migration removed, mass migration will be a thing of the past. At that point, I think fears of what will happen will be irrelevant. But I may be wrong, so I'm happy to support strong federalism and free association, further minimizing the risk of any issues.

    But I cannot justify infringements on people who merely want to move somewhere for work. Especially not on the basis of nebulous grievances like those of Joe Average or Derbyshire.

    I am from Los Angeles. The city has entered a death spiral. It will go bankrupt because the poor foreigners work off the books or if lawfully employed do not make enough to pay taxes, and the rich foreigners evade the taxes, and both groups demand all the services they can get. The immigrants, legal or not, whether dumb Mexicans or smart Chinese or crafty Iranians, do not respect our culture, our laws, or us. When there are enough of them, Whites cannot bear to live among them and their corrupt and dishonest ways. Blacks and their pathologies are not the only motivators for White flight. You might call it “free association” in actual practice. If you don’t like your hostile new neighbors, you can move.

    It appears that lots of folks have gotten their panties in a knot over my use of the word “domination”. I assure you that most recent immigrants have no interest in having natives join their Amerindian predecessors on reservations. I think a good deal of nativist fear stems from a ridiculous phobia that we might be as terrible as you were to the “native” population of the continent.

    I was referring to a benign “domination” that, in a capitalist society, is universally beneficial. Our success will enable us to demand goods and services that benefit other producers in society. If you don’t see the logic in this line of argumentation, you are essentially a crypto-commie and there will be little common ground for continued conversation.

    It’s simply a fact that the H1B-fueled cesspools of Silicon Valley and NYC are the most important economic engines of this country. Our standard of living cannot be maintained on Idaho potatoes and Ohio corn.

    We know how the elites dominate the common folk in the non-White world. It is not a benign relationship.

    Opposition to immigration is not rooted in some ridiculous phobia, but in first hand observation of how you people act. I’m from Los Angeles, and cannot unsee what I’ve seen. 3rd Worlders, even the best behaved ones, ruin Western cities.

    How is your domination universally beneficial? A billionaire does not buy much more goods and services from the common man than a mere millionaire does. After all, how much can one man eat? The wealth of the elite is tied up in sophisticated financial skulduggery and the ownership of large properties that others operate for them. That is why FIRE (Finance, Insurance, and Real Estate) transactions are 40% of the economy, up from 8% when I was a boy. Where is the benefit to the bulk of the population? Where are the good jobs for the common man?
    I can see why you wish to disengage from this conversation, but your accusation of “Commie” because I question your domination of my country is a very weak smokescreen. But you may go.

    And, BTW, why should we want to maintain a standard of living driven by the products of Silicon Valley and NYC, which are electronic toys and unpayable debt? Productive work, good neighbors, family, books, a paid for house, Idaho potatoes and Ohio corn are enough. You can’t eat silicon.

I’m neither a doctor nor a scientist so I don’t know. My surgeon buddy doesn’t seem to think he uses organic chemistry regularly.”
     
    I recently had a couple of small annoying growths removed from my forearm. I had to go to a dermatologist and my insurance paid almost three thousand dollars for this rocket surgery.

    This dermatologist, a woman, was #3 in her class of something like 230. She had to go to four years of STEM college undergrad and then four years of med school including rotations in internal medicine, hematology, oncology, and OB/GYN in residency, to do a job that can't possibly make use of most of this.

    It's like making a prospective car mechanic learn to work on bulldozers, tractor trailers, small engines and helicopters to be allowed to put brakes on your Subaru. If they did that a brake job would cost as much as my recent surgery.

    It's also interesting why such a high graduating student would go to dermatology. Is it because dermatology is more demanding than open heart surgery or nuclear medicine? No, it's because there a very small number of dermatologist residencies and the highest ranking grads get first choice of what they want. And as she explained, she has four kids and dermatology is a good fit with being a working mother. She keeps banker hours and will never be on 24-hour call. That's why dermatology residencies are highly sought after.

    Training women as physicians is wasteful. With shorter hours, time off for kids, and earlier retirement, the return on investment is about 2/3 of what we get for a man.

    This segues to another issue, why the Martin B-26 Marauder was made from a challenging to a dangerous airplane by insisting it be fitted with the slow-to-feather Curtiss electric propeller AND an inadequate electrical system. It was known as "One A Day In Tampa Bay" even in training.

    As I have researched and discussed with authorities imagined (Hi, Art Kramer, if you are still alive!) and real (the late Bob Hoover, almost inarguably the single greatest pilot that ever lived), the Marauder was inherently a challenging aircraft aerodynamically and one that was in advance of the level of flight instruction and knowledge at the time, but it was flyable safely with the correct technique. It was probably about as challenging as a 23 or 24 Learjet, a little more in the case of a single engine takeoff, but similar in needed technique to the early J-85 Learjets or perhaps more closely the Mitsubishi MU-2. But because the airplane had electric propellers that required many seconds to feather , engine failure on takeoff was past challenging, it was in effect a single engine aircraft incapable of sustaining flight without both engines turning. Equipping the aircraft with Ham Standard or Aeroproducts hydraulic propellers, with no other changes, would have made the aircraft far safer.

    Looking back at US WWII aircraft production, there were several examples where simple aerodynamic or mechanical changes would have saved a great number of lives and made the airplane far more effective. Other changes would simply have saved a lot of effort and money. But rarely were existing designs very thoroughly vetted in this manner.

    What the US aircraft industry was very good at is the one thing they are seemingly incapable of today: they could actually make airplanes, and a lot of them, on time and under budget.

    The Martin B-26 was a state of the art, high performance aircraft. It had more teething problems than were usual because the Army was so desperate for planes that they placed a big order to be delivered yesterday. The normal problems had to be sorted out by active duty crews instead of by test pilots.
    One interesting fix was to take only men who had finished in the top third of their training as pilots. The B-25, a simpler plane with lower performance got the second string crews.

    Multi-engine aircraft, even today, can be extremely unforgiving of human error. One engine catches fire - you're in trouble. But then the pilot gets confused as to which engine is on fire and shuts down the working one. Now your are in BIG trouble. Etc. Even today pilot error is a major cause of crashes and the more complex the aircraft the more opportunities for error. A big part of air safety has been idiot proofing aircraft against pilot error with devices that yell at the pilot to PULL UP and other such things. But in those days there were few idiot proofing devices so it was all up to the pilot.

Either he would rather stay on the family farm or is not smart enough/hard working enough to get thru med school in the 1st place or if he is, after med school he wants to move somewhere that has better restaurants than Podunk and where he can make more $. So the choice of the good people of Podunk, KS is either Arjun as their family doctor or nobody.

    Colleges prefer foreigners because they pay the full cost, no in state tuition breaks and so forth. So every Ahmad or Patel represents a Smith or McMahon denied admission.

    I spoke with a right-wing rabbi in Israel who had an interesting theory which I will summarize and expand on:

    The Jews have been able to survive as a distinct people for thousands of years despite the oppression they suffered across the diaspora, precisely because of said oppression. The majority in each country never allowed the Jews to forget they were a (suspiciously) distinct people, and so they never did.

    By being such a largely welcoming and safe place for Jewish people, the United States is ironically a greater existential threat to The Jewish People. Modern American society views Jews first and foremost as American and White, so Jews have begun to see themselves as the same. And so we now have an intermarriage rate of 58% (71% among the non-Orthodox) and soaring assimilation.

    Ironically, if the rabid anti-semitism found in certain corners of the internet were to become mainstreamed into American society (as the alt-right seems to pine for) American Jews will begin again to see themselves first and foremost as Jewish, and fight-or-flight mode will kick in to overdrive.

    So my question to the Jew-haters in the comments section of Unz.com: are you hasbara agents or merely patsies?

    I won’t hate Jews if they stop hating me.

    I understand the concerns of "Joe Average"...and yet, they are completely irrelevant from a policymaking perspective. People can be resentful for any reason of any type of immigrants...their emotions do not provide any grounds for national policy.

    The only issues are:

    1) Does John Smith (or Juan Sanchez, or whatever) want to come here?
    2) What are the externalities of John coming here (if any)?
    3) Can those externalities be fairly adjudicated or negotiated?

    I cannot justify limiting the free movement of people, especially when there are strong economic benefits to them coming here, both to them and to America at large in terms of positive spillovers. The best solutions are building structures for political federalism, particularism, and free association. That way, any externalities can be minimized or outright removed, while productive people can still come here to their heart's content (obviously, I'm in favor of removing welfare and entitlements for everyone).

    The concerns of Joe Average are completely irrelevant… in a dictatorship.

    I don’t know that you are capable of recognizing non-economic externalities, but here are a couple. Look at ElitistSettler, comment #214. He admittedly comes here to dominate us. Can that be adjudicated? Perhaps you would be satisfied if ElitistSettler only dominated Joe Average, and left you alone?

    Second, the wealth of the West comes in large part from its high level of trust. People could put their time into productive activity instead of having to spend half their waking hours ensuring that they’re not being shorted. Ever do business with a Middle Easterner? Importing people from low trust societies, for whom cheating is normal, will assuredly impoverish us. Doing business will become much more risky, and many of those without recourse to lawyers will turn to violence, as is common in many places.

    Why should Joe Average consent to live under a government that ignores his interests? Why should he accept as neighbors those who will exploit him?

    It appears that lots of folks have gotten their panties in a knot over my use of the word “domination”. I assure you that most recent immigrants have no interest in having natives join their Amerindian predecessors on reservations. I think a good deal of nativist fear stems from a ridiculous phobia that we might be as terrible as you were to the “native” population of the continent.

    I was referring to a benign “domination” that, in a capitalist society, is universally beneficial. Our success will enable us to demand goods and services that benefit other producers in society. If you don’t see the logic in this line of argumentation, you are essentially a crypto-commie and there will be little common ground for continued conversation.

    It’s simply a fact that the H1B-fueled cesspools of Silicon Valley and NYC are the most important economic engines of this country. Our standard of living cannot be maintained on Idaho potatoes and Ohio corn.
    , @MyronGaines1337
    No, I fully understand your concerns. I certainly don't want a flood of Middle Eastern immigrants coming here...but they are coming here because through welfare and entitlements, the Left has rolled out the red carpet for them. We cut off those things, and immigration will slow to a trickle. It will slow furthermore when, as libertarians want, we aggressively expand our capital to foreign lands and make them more productive.

    With the push and pull factors for migration removed, mass migration will be a thing of the past. At that point, I think fears of what will happen will be irrelevant. But I may be wrong, so I'm happy to support strong federalism and free association, further minimizing the risk of any issues.

    But I cannot justify infringements on people who merely want to move somewhere for work. Especially not on the basis of nebulous grievances like those of Joe Average or Derbyshire.

    A few major reasons I can think of in terms of why white gentile kids are no longer performing at the highest level academically to make them competitive with the Asians and Jews for elite colleges:

    1) They've gotten lazy. It's what happens to every civilization that has become wealthy. The kids get lazy because they grew up with all their needs met. Many white kids are indeed very spoiled, too busy following a coarsening and downward projecting pop culture and addicted to their electronics, first video games, social media. Both the pop culture and social media are of course, controlled by liberals.

    2) They and their parents have been brainwashed since childhood that hard work equals rote learning, laziness and deviant behavior in class lead to creativity. Elite colleges' use of holistic admission reinforces that believe system to these kids, essentially telling them that sports, clubs and social activism are a lot more important than academics, so white kids choose to excel in those, boys in sports, girls in social activism. Academia and all the social sciences that produce all the bullshit research are again, dominated by liberals.

    3) They are addicted to marijuana, courtesy again, of the liberals, for pushing for drug legalization because "black men are being unfairly incarcerated".

    After 4 decades of this crap we end up with what we have, white kids who are lazy, endlessly distracted by pop culture, addicted to video games, social media, and play sports or are addicted to drugs. Oh yes and thanks to Hollywood, they also learn that college is all about partying. Liberalism will bring the end of western civilization.

    Why didn't the same toxic liberal ideology affect Jewish and Asian kids? Jews tend to not preach what they practice, but it is starting to affect their kids. As Ron Unz reported Jewish achievement for those under 40 have fallen off a cliff. They are living off legacy admissions and tribal loyalty in getting jobs in Wall Street, Silicon Valley, media, academia, law, politics etc. Meanwhile Asians tend to be first or second generation and haven't gotten to that fat and lazy stage yet, but give them time, they will follow the same trajectory. It's like gravity, can't fight nature.

    Jews have successfully insulated themselves from the Goyim for millennia by teaching their kids to despise us as stupid and barbarous. The barriers have been falling because too many Whites have adopted Jewish values and hate the White “Others” too. The “stupid and barbarous” schtick is insupportable when the Goys act just like you, leaving only overt racism as a reason to avoid the Goy.

    I agree with what you wrote. You have the right to supplant a group that is less hard-working. Anyone who opposes that in principle is just a lazy moocher (which WN faggots are).

    It’s laughable to read that whites now seem to want every manner of affirmative action to shield them from their own shortcomings.
     
    Mainstream whites don't want this. Only loser WNs who are lazy and untalented want it (they are widely called 'wiggers' since they behave more like blacks, rather than successful whites). Remember that variance within whites is very high.

    A smart white simply evolves to do business with ascendant Asians, so he can remain ascendant himself. That is what I am about.

    My ancestors built this country, farmed its farms, built its cities, mined its coal, fought its wars, and created a society where 13 year olds no longer had to go to work in the mines and the average man could own a house and send his kids through high school. Most people had enough food to eat, clean water to drink, electricity, adequate clothing and shelter, and a couple days off a week. And we had White neighbors who did not prey on us, through force or fraud. These are not small achievements for any society. ElitistSettler’s “…creed of academic and professional domination…” marks him as an enemy. I have worked 40 hours a week most of my life, and about 60 hours a week for two five year periods. I own a small house, a old pick-up, a small RV (inherited), an old motorcycle, books, and musical instruments. Why should I need to drive myself harder in order to have more? Books and music and family and the respect of others is not enough?

    Well I'd love to get a response from Derbyshire on my point that he, as an immigrant from the UK, wouldn't have qualified under any of the own criteria he offered forth. I think you're on the right track Derb, but are a bit unrealistic about what can be achieved. Trump wants to cut legal immigration in half to 500,000 or so from the 1 million it's been at for the past decade.

    I think if we adopt a sane immigration policy favoring skilled immigrants, like they do in places like Hong Kong, Singapore, Cananda, or Australia, we can probably cut that down even further, say to 200,000 or so a year. Capping it out at 1,000 a year plus a handful of exceptions seems unrealistic. Of course we're only talking about permanent settlement, if I'm understanding the argument correctly.

    What about foreign students who study in the US? I personally tend to think that at the undergrad level, schools shouldn't be favoring foreigners over Americans merely because foreigners will pay full tuition compared to students here. Graduate school is obviously a different situation though, so I have less of a problem with those students.

    Here's the main point that Derb and others here may be missing. There actually aren't that many Chinese or Indians in the United States, especially when you consider the large populations from which they're drawn from. There are about 5 million Chinese Americans and over 4 million Indian Americans. Giving that America has an official population of about 320 million, the total Chinese+Indian American population is about 2.5% of the overall population.

    Furthermore, consider that mainland China has over 1380 million people and mainland India has over 1320 million people. 5/1380 and 4/1320 are .36% and .30% respectively, which makes it amusing to hear people complain for instance about how the Chinese are supposedly all leaving China and overwhelming America. In actuality, immigration from China to America or anywhere else in the West is fairly minimal. There are maybe 10 million Chinese living in all Western countries worldwide. By comparison, the Chinese diaspora in Southeast Asia numbers somewhere between 40 to 50 million.

    Chinese and Indian immigrants also tend to be disproportionately concentrated in certain parts of America. For instance, half of Chinese Americans live in either California or NYC. So the impact of this immigration on the country as a whole is minimized, in my opinion. Not too many rednecks in the middle of nowhere have to deal with Chinese or Indian Americans. East Asians obviously tend to have a disproportionate impact relative to their actual numbers, especially in quantitative STEM areas, given their visuospatial strengths. Is this bad for the country? I'm actually not convinced. As Derbyshire himself notes, East Asians mostly skew away from the arenas of politics, business, law, media, and the likes, where public opinion and policy on social matters are formed. So unlike the questionable influence that Jewish Americans may have in terms of advancing this country's agenda, East Asians are far more of a technical overclass than a ruling overclass. Your average American in the middle of nowhere probably feels the impact of East Asian Americans mostly through whatever is coming out of Silicon Valley these days.

    India and Pakistan were ruled by fewer than a million Britons, including dependents. Hey Ghandi, there’s only about 800,000 of them, so what’s your beef?

    Why should the ability to run 5 miles with an 80lb pack be of any interest to an army? What sort of shape to fight in are you going to be in after that?

    The moronic obsession with endurance over all else is, I suspect, partly due to the U.S. Army's intstitutional memory about its disastrous retreat in the Korean War, and partly due to Dr. Kenneth Cooper's influence, which got perpetuated as officers who liked to run tended to stay in and reinforce the status quo. There are a few field grade officers who are Mark Rippetoe-certified Starting Strength coaches who have been pushing back against this.

    A soldier who who has just run 5 miles with an 80 pound back may not be in the best condition to fight, but he will be much better off than the soldier who collapsed at mile three, or the soldier who dumped half his ammo to lighten the load.

    This is all just an accident of genetics. If you have a black ancestor - it is usually quite evident in your facial features. Your lips will be fuller, your chin weaker, and your nose wider than your white progenitors. But if you have a Amerindian ancestor you may very well look completely white. So after the first generation a lot of Mexican Indians blend smoothly into the White (Spanish Conquistador) population. Ricardo Montalban and Cesar Romero look like exotic Europeans whereas Denzel Washington, who may have some white ancestry, looks completely African.

    Cavalli-Sforza explains all this. He likens the major races of mankind to a hand. The whites and Amerindians are fingers - fairly close to each other. While the Africans are the thumb - more different and more genetically distant to the others.

    If your name is Juan Jose Rodriguez, you’re Hispanic. If you’re a member of the Mexican Mafia, you’re Hispanic. If you’re a victim, the FBI can determine that you’re Hispanic, but if you’re a perpetrator, they can’t?

    Hispanics have 1.9x the age-adjusted homicide rate of Non-Hispanic Whites.
    Blacks have 8x the homicide rate of Non-Hispanic Whites.

    Below are the official numbers from the U.S. CDC.

    https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/66/wr/mm6631a9.htm

    In 2015, homicide rates were 5.7 deaths per 100,000 for the total population, 20.9 for non-Hispanic blacks, 4.9 for Hispanics, and 2.6 for non-Hispanic whites.
     
    Here's a more remarkable statistic. In San Francisco, the black homicide rate is 57 per 100,000. For Hispanics, 6.3 per 100,000. For Non-Hispanic Whites, 2.6 per 100,000. For Asians, 1.6 per 100,000

    All statistics regarding Hispanics are fake. Look up “Texas Ten Most Wanted” or “New Mexico Ten Most Wanted”. Someone named Juan Jose Rodriguez may a member of the Mexican Mafia, but will be described as “White Hispanic”. Even the FBI crime stats have a category for hate crimes committed against Hispanics, but not hate crimes committed by Hispanics. That’s how a Mexican who kills a convenient 60 year old Black man sitting on his porch becomes a White guy.

    This is all just an accident of genetics. If you have a black ancestor - it is usually quite evident in your facial features. Your lips will be fuller, your chin weaker, and your nose wider than your white progenitors. But if you have a Amerindian ancestor you may very well look completely white. So after the first generation a lot of Mexican Indians blend smoothly into the White (Spanish Conquistador) population. Ricardo Montalban and Cesar Romero look like exotic Europeans whereas Denzel Washington, who may have some white ancestry, looks completely African.

    Cavalli-Sforza explains all this. He likens the major races of mankind to a hand. The whites and Amerindians are fingers - fairly close to each other. While the Africans are the thumb - more different and more genetically distant to the others.

    Good point. The census worked well for interning Japanese during ww2.

    I personally wonder what happens when you group a bunch of people that traditionally war with each other like Jew, Sunni, Shia, Sufi, and assorted others? The multi cult thinks it will be like Hispanics that more or less tolerate each other in exchange for some affirmative action goodies. But S American nations have not warred with each other recently. It unknown what happens when you aggregate Shia and Takfiris who think Shia should be killed on mass into one group. Kurds + Turks? Jews+Arabs?

    I sort of like the idea of creating all these affirmative action groups because it will dilute the amount of advantage any one group can have. There should also be a group, Generic American.

    "Accomplice city." Nice turn of phrase.

    Maybe another related news piece this week from "Baghdad by the Bay." The Board of Supervisors for the first time in history rescinded a two-year old tax sale (long past the statute of limitations to challenge) of a privately-owned gated street that the homeowners' association had lost for not paying their taxes. The neighborhood is one of the poshest and wealthiest in the city, Dianne Feinstein is a former resident and got involved on her former neighbors' behalf, and they retained an attorney who was a long-time insider from the city attorney's office to represent them. They even got a local synagogue to raise security concerns, "a matter of grave concern in these times," and the British consulate to claim it was a matter of national security for them. The buyers were an overseas Chinese couple with roots in San Jose who have been lambasted as "out of town speculators," and the story has picked up some notice in the east Asian press.

    http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/12/02/san-francisco-elite-to-couple-who-bought-their-street-theres-the-way-to-san-jose/

    I guess if you're a criminal illegal alien who shoots a girl from Pleasanton who's in the city to work, the city is your accomplice; but if you're an "out of town speculator" making a nuisance for the city's biggest elites, the city is their accomplice.

    {....what you mean by “2×4″ and “drywall”?}

    Don't know about other states in the US, but here in California, residential houses, many multistory, multiunit, apartments and such are built with 2x4 wood (Douglas Fir). 2x4 refers to the thickness and width of the wood plank. The dimensions are actually 1.5 inches by 3.5 inches, but it's called 2x4. Other sizes used in construction are 2x6, 2x8, sometimes 2x10 for horizontal loads. The walls are constructed with 2x4 wood, filled with glass insulation, wiring, plumbing, etc than covered from inside by 5/8" thick gypsum board called drywall. Gypsum is fireproof. The outside is covered with waterproof membrane, than covered with stucco.

    Wood is perfect building material for California, because it is reasonably priced, easy to work with, and because California is earthquake country. Wood will bend and flex in an earthquake. If property waterproofed, wood can last a very, very long time.

    FYI: Prior to WW2, 2x4s were actually 2″x4″. My 1920s house has them. During the war, the dimensions were changed due to the extremely high demand for wood. The 2×4 of today is a product of wartime rationing.

    "Well, yes: Haiti, even after massive aid and rebuilding, is still a godforsaken slum. That’s a consequence of its very low levels of human capital, though; and that’s not the fault of Americans, or of anyone other than Mother Nature. Why are we supposed to pay for other countries’ godforsakenness?"
     
    That paragraph is by itself wrong, and then immediately contradicted by the following paragraph.

    There is a reason Haiti is the hell-hole that it is, and it is not Mother Nature or the lack of Magic Dirt, and it is encapsulated succinctly by

    "We extended generous hospitality to these people after the earthquake—when, if they’d had any feelings for their own country, you’d think that they’d want to go back and help rebuild it. No: Apparently, it’s up to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to rebuild it while the Haitians hang out in Palm Beach."
     
    The Haitians either refuse to or are incapable of evolving into a coherent, functioning society, and we are enabling them to avoid that personal responsibility.

    On another note, why are the people of the US taking them in, when it was the French who created this problem? Shouldn't they be barging to Cannes and Marseille, or sailing up the Seine to "gay Paree?"

    Nor would we have to hear nauseatingly sickening sycophants endlessly fawn over and fete people like Ta Nehisi Coates like he's the second coming of Jesus Christ. And when blacks are viciously assaulting Asians in Northern California, the media would actually talk about it honestly.

    But yeah, we can't have any of that common sense good stuff because whites basically had to discriminate against blacks way back in the day, instead of just being decent human beings to their fellow Americans.

    A couple of points about the Washington Post article. First, this quote:

    “Academics and scholars must be mindful about using research done by only straight, white men . . . ."
     
    How exactly are academics supposed to keep track of the racial and ethnic identities and sexual preferences or gender self-definitions of those whose work they cite? By looking at the author's name, you can generally tell whether the person is male or female, but beyond that, it's either a matter of knowing the individual personally, or conducting some sort of creepy research on them. I suppose that the preferred answer is that the non-white, non-cisgendered authors will make these facts known in their published work.

    Also:

    …research done by white men are relied upon more heavily than those done by experts from other backgrounds…

    …Work done by women and other minorities have often been overlooked by their peers,

     

    Here are two easily identified subject-verb agreement errors. When you can't keep track of whether the subjects of your sentences are singular or plural, in what way are you qualified to write for a living, much less lecture your readers on how to think and learn?

    Finally, can't Jeff Bezos cough up enough money for some decent copy editors, especially since the NY Times is laying them off at the moment?

    WRT subject-verb agreement, the problem is Ms Chan’s cultural background. Friends of mine who teach Chinese kids tell me they have a real hard time with this. My guess is that her editors are afraid to correct her, for fear of being racist.

Anyone who works behind a library desk has a load of war stories about all the disruptive homeless people who show up drunk, high, or use the library these days for their internet porn. Libraries are very different from the ones I remember as a child, where you could hear a pin drop. These days, you either have to hire professional security or your nice introverted white ladies have to develop the intimidation skills of a Marine drill sergeant. Our library has had permanent rent-a-cop for some time.

    I once worked on a project in a library that required being there for several days, and the ambulance showed up every day to haul off the same alcoholic Indian who kept passing out inside the place while making vast saurian noises. One librarian told me they had a long list of patrons who were banned for life, and that her job was a war zone. I once watched some histrionic old guy show up and rant to the entire building that he wanted to die, and one librarian told me he does this constantly just to get attention, and yup, he's on the ban list.

    I got to witness one enraged librarian banning two grade school boys for life because they showed up with a real gun. She confiscated it and kicked them out while raining down fire from heaven on them in one of the most impressive burst of high dudgeon that I've ever seen.

    And this black chick thinks her worst problem are microaggressions? I doubt she's a real librarian dealing with actual patrons or she wouldn't be whining about this BS.

    NYT: Some London Fire Survivors Will Be Housed in a Luxury Complex

    LONDON — After nearly a week of being shuttled among community centers, hotels and vacant properties, weary survivors of London’s worst fire in decades learned on Wednesday that some of them would be housed in a luxury complex where some apartments go for more than $10 million.

    In an announcement that startled some survivors, the government said it would acquire 68 units — ranging in size from one to three bedrooms — to permanently house some of the displaced families.

    The units are in a complex that is only a mile and a half south of Grenfell Tower — the 1974 building with 120 apartments that was incinerated early on the morning of June 14, killing at least 79 people — but there is a social and economic chasm between the buildings.

    Immigrants from Eritrea, Sudan, Somalia and other poor and troubled countries, many of them refugees and making the minimum wage, were crowded into subdivided apartments in Grenfell Tower.

    In contrast, the housing complex, Kensington Row, has large spacious apartments with modern, luxurious finishes and a range of amenities including a 24-hour concierge, swimming pool, spa and private cinema. The complex is worth £2 billion ($2.5 billion).
     

    If the current residents of this luxury complex are wealthy hedge-funders, then I say good! The rich have been embracing diversity and immigration with their mouths for decades, time for them to walk the walk. Nyuk nyuk nyuk.

    Your "it just plain is" is wrong. Asia is the Orient, as much as is East Asia. I bet you if you looked it up in the dictionary right now, it would mention all of Asia first then specify the eastern part.

    Are people really all that confused by the terminology, or is this, as I suspect, nitpickery? It must be getting more confusing, as non-Chinese, Japanese, etc. Asian groups become more recognizable. But not so as to make a thing out of it.

    "Oriental" doesn't sound nicer to me. It brings to mind murder and intrigue, like on the Orient Express.

    In American English, “Orient” commonly means East Asia, and “Oriental” means people or things originating in East Asia. No American calls Iranians or Israelis or Hindus “Oriental”. You are apparently describing British English. The Orient Express went no further east than Istanbul, IIRC.

    The demand that we replace the clearly understood word “Oriental” with the misnomer “Asian” was rooted in a synthetic grievance, intended to unite Japanese and Chinese at UC Berkeley in a anti-White coalition. You are, I gather, too young to know this.

    I wouldn't be surprised if switching from "Oriental" to "Asian" was a PC thing. They like to shuffle around names for no better reason than to have a hammer with which to hit those who aren't "with it." But that's not reason enough for me to advocate using "Oriental." I use the acceptable "black" instead of "colored" or "negro."

    The main sticking point with me is the idea that we ought to prefer the term "Oriental" because it's more accurate. Because that's false. It just has a longer, better-established association, is all.

    I don't mind if people use it, though.

    I'm not sure if you're aware of this, but the original Anglo-Saxons have a Queen and an Aristocracy. America's Constitution was (ostensibly) created to PREVENT that happening in America. My understanding is that much of it came from a similar Constitution of the Iroquois Nation, I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

    That “Iroquois constitution” as an inspiration for the Founders is a lot of multi-cult propaganda, inserting People of Color where they did not belong. The Founders looked to the Roman Republic, the Venetian Republic, and to British political philosophers, along with a few Continental thinkers.

He seemed extremely agitated that a 'white' dude like me would join the little Spaniards in condemning the war. I yelled back at him (there was quite a din), What? You're pro war?

    The German decision not to use gas was not entirely humanitarian. While the Germans were in fact far ahead of the Allies in the development of nerve agents, their reading of articles in chemical journals led them to conclude incorrectly that the Allies had similar chemical technology.

    The Allies always had chemical agents not too far behind the lines and serious consideration was given to using mustard gas on dug-in Japanese on Iwo Jima.

    We may not have had nerve gas, but we had the means to deliver a lot more mustard gas than the Germans could have done with their nerve gas. And no need for risky precision daylight bombing either. The B-17s and B-24s could have flown at night like the British bombers did.

    And I understand that we definitely planned to use gas in the event of an invasion of Japan. No holds barred whatsoever.

    Not saying you're wrong, but I generally thought gas was delivered by artillery. A few crashes on takeoff of planes carrying chemical weapons (not all that uncommon with WWII aircraft, which were usually overloaded and overboosting their engines to achieve take-off speed) might have dampened the enthusiasm for delivering mustard gas by aerial bombs.

    By the end of World War II, American "precision daylight bombing" often consisted of radar drops with roughly the accuracy of night bombing--not much. Over Japan, LeMay just called the whole precision bombing campaign off, stuffed the B-29s with all the incendiaries they could carry, and sent them over at night at low altitude.

    , @Che Guava
    Definitely:I would say 'very likely' or 'almost certainly'. The chemical agents explicitly mentioned in the invasion plans that became available abt. twenty years ago were defoliants for use against agriculture to cause starvation.

    However, the scale of the US chemical arsenal, rate of the build-up, a statement in support of limited use by Marshall, and Macarthur's later eagerness to use nuclear weapons in Korea all imply a very strong likelihood.

    Still, as far as I know, the only uses of gas had been by Italy in Ethiopia and lapan in China, so one would expect there may have been some resistance among senior US officers.

    It is strange that those who proclaim the "right to life" exists when abortion is considered as a way to end an unwanted pregnancy are not quite so enthusiastic about the right to stay alive when it involves expenditure on behalf of those who cannot afford it for themselves.

    Presumably different parts of the brain are involved in dealing with the two concepts, and many prolifers on abortion are racked with guilt over some personal misdemeanor buried in history or the subconscious.

    The right to not be killed and the right to force somebody else to pay for your medical care are easily distinguished by using one’s reason, whatever part of the brain that resides in. You may have a different view on the matter, working from different assumptions, but your statement that the two concepts involve different parts of the brain is clearly rooted in premature toilet training.

    Throughout our history, sick and injured poor people got care in America, just as they got food and shelter. That was a choice made by their friends, family, and caregivers, not a mandate from the State. No, moneyless jackasses who had no friends did not get expensive treatments, but they got their broken legs set, their abscesses drained and their rotten teeth pulled.

    How Trump Adviser Stephen Miller Divided a Santa Monica Synagogue
    6:30 AM PDT 3/29/2017 by Scott Johnson

    "We did our best here to teach Stephen the ethical standards of Judaism," says Jeff Marx, the Reform synagogue's longtime rabbi, who tutored Miller and appears with him in the class portrait.

    Sixteen years later, Miller's picture is all over the place, but the progressive Jewish community that helped raise him is struggling to fathom how a native son found an intellectual home with President Donald Trump and his allies. "He certainly grew up here having a knowledge base" of Judaism, says Marx, a bearded, kindly man who shrugs and lifts his hands in a gesture of helplessness, unwilling to say more.

    For a Jewish community already wary about anti-Semitic attacks and an uptick in hate speech, Miller's positions have struck a nerve. Roughly two-thirds of Jews vote reliably Democratic, according to polls. And while millions of Jews went for Trump, Miller's push to target specific ethnic or religious minorities has Jews in both parties nervous.

    In response, two dozen top Jewish thinkers in L.A. recently formed Jews United for Democracy and Justice, which advocates "against the normalization of hate acts and speech" resulting from Trump policies. The entertainment industry is well represented among its 2,300 members, which include actresses Mayim Bialik and Michaela Watkins, director John Landis, comedy writer Rob Kutner, producer Amy Ziering and TV exec Nina Tassler. "Miller is not the only Jew who is supportive of these policies, but he's in a position of great influence," says co-founder Rabbi Ken Chasen. ...

    By all accounts, Miller's family has felt pressure because of his career arc. One current Santa Monica Synagogue congregant says a few friends have stopped talking to the Millers. A neighbor, also Jewish, is leaning toward posting lawn signs that will read "Refugees and Immigrants Welcome Here," "No Muslim Ban," "No Border Wall" and "Our Communities Stand Tall."

    "We'll try to get as many of these on the block as we can," the neighbor says. "Maybe the Millers will get the message."

    Of course, the impetus for the development of electronic computers - and all that flowed from them - came from the military.
    The first and foremost application was for the compiling and tabulation of accurate gunnery ranging tables, the equations needed to give really accurate results containing too many variables and being too abstruse to be compiled by human calculators.
    The notion of mechanizing mathematical operations is an old one, the ancient Greeks having that famous 'mechanism' which was dredged up from the sea.
    What enabled the theory of mechanized arithmetic to become reality was the development of electronic switches.

    IIRC, the Mark 37 mechanical computer, designed to be used with the U.S. Navy’s 5/38 dual purpose gun during WW2, was still in service up to 1970. Mechanical computers were adequate for gunnery. The first electronic computers were used to read coded German radio signals.

So it was a big surprise in the mid-1970s when history got rewritten to point out that they had been invented for code-breaking. The Enigma secret was kept for a long long time. A few years ago I was reading a 1950s-1960s history of the US Navy in WWII by Admiral Samuel Eliot Morison. In one sentence, it was pretty clear in retrospect that he was winking at the Enigma project. He said something like "The Navy became so successful in its hunt for German submarines that one might almost believe that somebody was cracking the German codes" or something like that. I don't think anybody noticed what he was hinting at at the time, however.
