Yesterday, I endorsed Ta-Nehisi Coates’ celebrated call for reparations to the descendants of American slaves. Modeled upon the Indian casino idea, I propose that those who can document, say, that at least half of their ancestors in 1860 were slaves in the United States can partake of a legal monopoly on the growing, wholesaling, and retailing of marijuana granted to authentic descendants of American black slaves.

I pointed out that, while no doubt, East Asian go-getters fresh off the plane would be more efficient at keeping America high, selling marijuana is one of those businesses where bad is good. The more the lackadaisical businesspeople get high on their own supply and fail to deliver crackerjack service, the better for the country.

But the window of time is closing on TNC to endorse my idea before hard-charging East Asian immigrants permanently squeeze the American black man out of his legacy. For example, from today’s South China Morning Post:

100 Chinese-run ‘pot-growing’ houses seized in one of the largest residential drug busts in US history

Raids were part of an investigation that began in 2014, when police began to notice down payments on houses financed by wire transfers mainly from Fujian Province, on China’s southeast coast

PUBLISHED : Thursday, 05 April, 2018, 8:55am

The raids culminated a months-long investigation focusing on dozens of Chinese nationals who bought homes in seven California counties.

Most of the buyers were in the country legally and were not arrested as authorities investigate if they were indebted to Chinese gangs and forced into the work, US Attorney McGregor Scott said.

Much of the pot was shipped to Georgia, Illinois, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania through Atlanta, Chicago and New York City, he said.

The drug is legal in California but requires permits to grow and can’t be sent across state lines. It is still banned by the US government.

Black-market pot-growing houses have proliferated in the inland California region where authorities carried out the raids, and many of them were traced to Chinese criminal organisations from the San Francisco Bay Area in the mid-2000s, Scott said.

Weedparations Now!

Before it’s too late.

    I am not trying to minimize what your write. If you have seen my comments throughout my time here you know I am about as hawkish on preserving the historic American nation as anyone. But I still don't equate a diverse America with a black America. I don't believe Mexicans and others have any great love for blacks, and I don't foresee a black America like what you have in South Africa.

    I am not saying I will like it. But I think if we transition to a more Latin American style nation blacks will probably be worse off because the other groups aren't going to want to foot the bill and will have no guilt complex to put up with their antics.

    Just did a back-of-the-envelope reckoning of all the property taxes I've paid on homes owned over the last 40+ years -- nearly quarter-million dollars.

    Large share of property taxes goes to support public schools.

    Consider my quarter-million dollar contribution to the well-being of the communities, and the education of kids I never knew, to be my share of reparations.

    You're welcome.

  14. OT gangstalking at 4chan
    Since the presidential campaign, people’s IPs were getting harvested and used by David Brock’s CTR troll farm. That way CTR could double its disruption: boards were spammed with inappropriate material, and when moderators banned an IP (which is almost their only defense), they would be banning a regular commenter who had nothing to do with the spamming. I (my IP) just got banned for (the accusation reads) posting blacked-type hardcore porn on a worksafe board. Pretty much the same thing as sending a personal email to the FBI with a cheese pizza attachment (or it would be if the FBI investigated people). This will probably increase as we head into the mid-term elections. It’s straight out of East German efforts to make government critics look insane.
    4chan’s boards are all very different, but CTR either couldn’t understand that or never cared. All boards saw stock CTR spamming such as was originally visible just on the politics board. This had the result of the regulars of other boards blaming /pol/-regulars and not CTR. The apparent goal was to disrupt the entire site.
    Just like Zuckerberg and YouTube patting themselves on the back after uncontested censorship leading to deaths and massive data mining that is somehow Donald Trump’s fault, this stasi gangstalking campaign will be understood by the establishment as a success. It will then be refined and applied to other discussion fora.

    This sounds kinda important, but I'm having a hard time understanding what you wrote.

    First of all, is "CTR" click-through rate? If so, what is a click-through rate troll farm and how does it differ from a regular troll farm?

    Second, how can anyone not on staff harvest IP addresses from a board? (I'm not familiar with the particulars of 4chan.) Even if someone could get at the posters' IP addresses, wouldn't most of those be IP addresses of ISPs/large organizations rather than individuals?

    Third, what is this referring to?

    1970s computer hoodoo guru Don Lancaster on weed pricing:


    Ah, the law of the unintended consequence.

    A case can be made that the ONLY positive benefit of years
    of federal, state, and local mj lawmaking has been stunning
    mj farm subsidies and price supports. Price supports outrageously
    higher than any other ag commodity anytime ever.

    Since these subsidies are obviously about to be eliminated
    completely, it is reasonable to ask what a mj baseline price
    might be in the absence of outrageous federal supports.

    Cotton is sort of a comparable crop except that its ginning
    is somewhat more involved. With cotton now at 62 cents a
    pound, the unsupported mj pricing can reasonably be
    expected to come in somewhere around 59 cents a pound.

    And reasonably could be standardized at a similar industrial
    500 pound bale. With anything less personal use.

    Several side effects could reasonably be expected. The
    banking issues would largely vanish, and any mj crime could
    reasonably be expected to end up largely comparable in size to,
    say, the heinous problems with cotton theft issues. Black market
    mj could likewise be expected to end up somewhat smaller
    than the cotton black market.

    One other likely side effect: state and local tax income projections
    could end up somewhat shy of expectations. But perhaps only by
    five or six orders of magnitude.

    Yes. My IP address is a dynamic one from a Verizon pool. Dynamic IP addresses have a time to live (TTL) after which they expire and you get a new one from the DHCP server. My IP address changes about twice a year; the only way I know is that I can no longer connect externally to a small website that I run at home.

    So the bottom line is that even if they are doing this, and I would not doubt it, the damage/blocking would not be permanent -unless- you are running with a static (unchanging) IP address. Most people are not.

    CTR - Correct The Record - CREW - ShareBlue and a few other names, are all re-namings of the same thing. You will have heard of reputation protection services that look out for some idiot making a defamation web site or a freak bad search result. NPR recently did a story about a white collar criminal who devoted an online defamation campaign to attacking the white collar criminal who effectively turned the first guy in. There's also astroturf services, fake crowds, and whispering campaigns. There were a few mainstream stories about David Brock's "nerd virgins" manning computers for ten bucks an hour, that stopped after we visited their office and photographed their ugly lobby art.
    CTR is Hillary's reputation protection goon squad. They tried a number of different things at 4chan during the 2016 presidential campaign, with none of them getting anywhere, and settled on basically just wrecking the place. Bringing a boombox to a lecture, birddogging, posting inoffensive but totally irrelevant stuff, namecalling, garden pathing, attempted targeted and coordinated namecalling, stealing IPs, deliberately breaking site rules (even minor ones), Martians Go Home.
    It's definitely coming for the midterms. They spent a lot of time in denial after Trump's victory in November, but their conclusion is clearly that internet freedom and civility is the enemy. They are going to identify and come after every site they think is right-wing, including this one. Libertarian, and anti-establishment leftist sites will be targeted. You hate Richard Spencer? Good for you, guess what, they think you are Richard Spencer. These slime normalize suckerpunching and then declare themselves to be the arbiters and champions of civil discourse, they want is to die, and if we win a lot of them are going to jail because a lot of these guys are not just political consultant creeps.
    What can we do? Watch the final scene of the Glenn Ford movie Trial where the Saul Alinsky character attempts to disrupt a trial with basic tantrumming. He is defeated by a patient and principled judge who refuses to take the bait. If you have good rules and administer them consistently, and keep a level head, you can defeat them, because they don't get far beyond trying to get a rise out of people. There will be denials of service but that's like a compliment, that means nothing simpler worked.

    Zuckerberg and YouTube patting themselves on the back after uncontested censorship leading to deaths
     
    Right now Zuck is in the news and answering politicians' questions, but it's getting spun like Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin invented and were sole perpetrators of data mining. They're clumsy enough about it, though, that lots of normies are realizing that data mining is the reason Facebook exists, and not some unforeseeable flaw. Also that memory-holed shooting at a YouTube office was in reaction to the recent campaign of aggressive censorship and demonetization. Right after that happened the Viewscreen was babbling about a white woman angry at her boyfriend -- as soon as it suits them, they're dismissing women as irrational and romance-obsessed! It became clear later that the shooter was upset about getting demonetized, censored, and put behind an age restriction.
    But they're "patting themselves on the back" because they think they won, the deaths certainly mean nothing to them, and they will continue to move forward with data mining and brazenly political censorship.
  37. Amtrak seems to be used a lot to get the pot to Chicago. Authorities also seem to be using the cities on the approach to Chicago to bust the carries on the trains. In smaller cities like Galesburg, Illinois and Omaha, Nebraska, they sweep the trains with pot sniffing dogs and make a lot of busts. Google “Amtrak pot bust” http://wqad.com/2017/11/27/nearly-65-pounds-of-cannabis-found-in-suitcases-on-amtrak-train-in-galesburg/

    First of all, is "CTR" click-through rate? If so, what is a click-through rate troll farm and how does it differ from a regular troll farm?

    Second, how can anyone not on staff harvest IP addresses from a board? (I'm not familiar with the particulars of 4chan.) Even if someone could get at the posters' IP addresses, wouldn't most of those be IP addresses of ISPs/large organizations rather than individuals?

    Just did a back-of-the-envelope reckoning of all the property taxes I’ve paid on homes owned over the last 40+ years — nearly quarter-million dollars.

    Large share of property taxes goes to support public schools.

    Consider my quarter-million dollar contribution to the well-being of the communities, and the education of kids I never knew, to be my share of reparations.

    You’re welcome.

From Amazon prime to Netflix, the entertainment industry is being democratized. What happens when the Harb Wan-tans of the world begin to encroach on the Harv Vienstiens of the world.
    In that theoretical situation, my guess is that entertainment will become so cheap and so un-entertaining, that people lose interest.
