Here are some poker-faced LAPD officers gently breaking up a little girl’s birthday block party in South Central Los Angeles on Saturday evening.

A few observations: first, cops probably should wear their riot face shields for these kind of encounters with spittle-emitting civilians. At minimum, the handsome cop in the middle of the line should put his sunglasses over his eyes.

Commenter vhrm says:

Setting aside the whole “is this even America ?!” thing, if they put on some surgical masks and medical type gloves (which they all carry anyway afaik), it would reinforce the signal that this IS a health issue rather than “go home because i’m a cop and i said so”.

Second, the residential side streets of South Central Los Angeles, which are heavily single family homes, looks like paradise in late March with the sun out and the lawns all green. It’s also conveniently located for commuting to jobs downtown, in Beverly Hills, and at the airport. (The commercial streets are dumps, but L.A. blacks tend to do a decent job of keeping their single family houses and yards maintained.)

Third, we need somebody (celebrities? radio disk jockeys? athletes? preachers?) to get through to the urban underclasses that even though they haven’t been hard hit yet, they aren’t immune. Blacks in Detroit and Milwaukee are starting to get whomped by the epidemic. Simple messages like don’t go to the emergency room unless it’s really an emergency are important.

Los Angeles is not lacking in black celebrities (nor is New York). They need to be on TV messaging about social distancing and the new situation.

My impression is that the urban underclasses haven’t, on the whole, been actively troublemaking so far, which is very good. (This is different from other types of disasters that tempt looters to ransack empty houses because this time everybody is home. Plus, it just might be that most people want to help.) But educating the less educated to make positive contributions is going to be a challenge. It’s time for the celebrities they trust to step up.

    I don't know that anyone's really "earned" the nice weather.

    Also, while i'd agree with some of the sentiment in normal times, i'm granting these people Freedom Fighting Partisan status.

    I'm too much of a pansy (and too comfortable) to cause a ruckus myself, but to the degree that other people remind the government there are costs to treading on the people, i'm ok with it.

    Even some of the Chinese were people enough to fight against the police when they were getting dragged out of their houses in Wuhan weeks ago.

    Seriously. Those people live in literal paradise.

    Given their obesity, they obviously have enough food to eat. Not to mention free schooling and a reasonable degree of healthcare access (Medicaid).

    It's amazing the degree of attitude that those Blacks have. If we were a sane country (which we clearly are not), we'd send those Blacks to Appalachia, Idaho, or some desolate place in the U.S. Then we'd bring back all those mild Midwestern types that used to populate LA, back when LA was an American city.

    Sadly, this is just a dream.

    Meanwhile, in Israel, the Jews are bulldozing the homes of Palestinians (who've lived there for many centuries) and giving their land to Jewish families. Israel is a country that we've given hundreds of billions of dollars to in aid, not to mention many decades of unyielding support. You can't get elected to dog catcher in DC without praising Israel, but for some reason nobody ever seems to ever learn anything from them.... Funny how that works.....

    This is not true. Many of them work in hospitals, nursing homes, fast food, etc. and would bring it back to the outside world. The epidemic isn't going to end until every last ember is put out or else it will just take off again until all the fuel is consumed.

    While I speak a different vernacular and listen to different music, I'm going to be reacting the same way if this "mandatory distancing" shut-down continues until summer.

    What are you all going to be doing? Cowering in your homes? Peeking out from behind the curtain to find a kid's birthday party call the cops about? Clicking through your phone to find the newest instructions from the Ministry of Compliance?

    For how long? "Well, uhhh ... buhhh ... until the emergency ends, of course!" Meaning for months or years, if your masters in the government tell you so?

    I know who's got me saying "what country is this?" and it's NOT these moms and kids in LA.

    Auntie, Police now have to enforce edicts that prevent youths from playing basketball or catch with a football in their own neighborhoods and in Chicago, just walking on bike paths or in the park. Yet here in WNY some golf courses are opening up as long as you don't share a cart and keep your social distance. Big difference , it is only 44 degrees here today. These videos are wedges between the socially responsible, in this case represented by the police, and a community that doen't really care about responsibility. Exhibit A is this video.

    , @Hypnotoad666
    The deaths are occurring in nursing homes and hospice centers. People punching out just a little earlier than expected.

    If it weren't for the national hysteria, the epidemic would be essentially un-observable and not on anyone's radar.

    Of course, I get that it can expand exponentially from here. But I'm just sayin' -- as of this moment, on the ground -- the "crisis" is all potential and hypothesized.

    Time will tell if the Wu-Flu is more like the 1918 virus or the Y2K "bug."
    , @HA
    "Just went to 2 hospitals in LA to check out these “War Zones” the MSM keeps telling us about.🏥They are very quiet & EMPTY."

    And why wouldn't they be? All non-essential surgeries (even some that are quite possibly life-saving) are being postponed. Appointments are being canceled or rescheduled. No one is denying that.

    Meanwhile, over in the obstetrics wing, things are probably pretty normal, or within the usual daily/seasonal ranges. After all, babies don't check to see what it's like outside before deciding to pop out.

    But even if almost the entirety of the hospital is empty, it can still be a "war zone" over in the cardio-pulmonary wing or wherever they keep all the ventilators. Did you really need someone like me to spell out something that obvious?

    I don't mind people saying this thing may be overblown. It's important to hear the opposing side, and when they run the final numbers, that may well be the consensus verdict. But why do people who think this is nothing have to come up with such idiotic arguments (e.g. "let's wait until there are millions of dead in the streets before doing anything")? How exactly is that helping to make their case? If anything, it's dumb arguments like this that are going to make people buy even more into the opposing side.

    There was a female cop here in HK who came down with the virus last week; she was also observed carrying out her duties without wearing a mask, which is borderline unthinkable here at the moment. Is this a need for cops to signal their toughness? Seems like maybe not the best time for it.

    Boy are you ever on target here, vhrm.

    I'm getting really sick of this maskless lockdown.

    It's a respiratory disease! If our public officials aren't sending out the cops ready to mask up when dealing with the public and aren't ready to mask up themselves, then they are not serious and have no business ordering these police statey measures--telling people not to be on the street or golfing!

    If it's a serious crisis justifying extreme measures, then you at least do all the trivial measures that have some effectiveness.

    A tangent on the "personal protective equipment" and the "are we really taking this seriously?".

    Something i think my mom pointed out a few years ago that seems strange is that in the US doctors and nurses, even in hospitals, wear their work clothes to / from work.

    It also came up in a few of the testimonial threads from doctors that have been linked over the past several days and i also heard it in some radio stories: doctors and nurses working in ER / critical care worry about how they're going to decontaminate when getting home. e.g. one mentioned he takes his scrubs off in the garage and jumps into the shower.

    Where i live it's common to see nurses in scrubs in stores etc. in the evenings.

    So, especially in this infectious period, wouldn't it make sense to set up a system where people change out of street clothes into work clothes and shoes at work and then back again before they leave. And maybe even shower at work too before they leave?
    I'm not saying this as something that should be imposed on people, but i assume they'd actually feel better / safer doing that. Like the gym ( ... if it's a nicer gym). What am i missing?

  18. As of Friday, more than 500 NYPD cops have tested positive for COVID-19. These LAPD cops should definitely be wearing masks, gloves, and face shields.

  19. Mothers with young children are the group most likely to be victims of property crimes. The police have a duty to protect children. The information about property crimes, identifies the fencers, which further leads to money laundering, and so on…

    There is no simple answer.

    — If the police arrive as faceless troopers in full SWAT gear they would be better protected, but less trusted.
    — If it is unsafe (e.g. Baltimore) the police will not go.

    What the hell is wrong with these people? They really do live in a paradise that they have not earned at all and they act like complete savages. They are spoilt little children in obese adult bodies. It just doesn't square with black people, or any people, that I've ever met.

    Seriously. Those people live in literal paradise.

    Given their obesity, they obviously have enough food to eat. Not to mention free schooling and a reasonable degree of healthcare access (Medicaid).

    It’s amazing the degree of attitude that those Blacks have. If we were a sane country (which we clearly are not), we’d send those Blacks to Appalachia, Idaho, or some desolate place in the U.S. Then we’d bring back all those mild Midwestern types that used to populate LA, back when LA was an American city.

    Sadly, this is just a dream.

    Meanwhile, in Israel, the Jews are bulldozing the homes of Palestinians (who’ve lived there for many centuries) and giving their land to Jewish families. Israel is a country that we’ve given hundreds of billions of dollars to in aid, not to mention many decades of unyielding support. You can’t get elected to dog catcher in DC without praising Israel, but for some reason nobody ever seems to ever learn anything from them…. Funny how that works…..

    Second, South Central Los Angeles, which is heavily single family homes, looks like paradise in late March with the sun out and the lawns all green. (Of course, late March is when the Rodney King riot started.)

    I was in London at the start of the Rodney King riots. This was back when London was still an English city, and even though the British are familiar with Yanks, there were so few foreigners that I could be readily noticed as a foreigner b/c of my accent, which at the time was still perceived as mildly exotic. Lots of people I came across had never met a real live American before.

    In the early phases I guess the news services were still scrambling for riot information, and a number of the newspapers ran file photos of typical non-burning South Central streets to give some local flavor: large, spacious, sturdy houses with big pleasant porches and lawns. While sitting with friends in restaurants or walking down the street talking, random Londoners would notice my accent and buttonhole me with the newspaper: "Oi mate, yer a Yank, can you please explain what on earth these people are so mad about? We all thought they lived in filthy slums! I'd give me right arm to live in a house like that!"

    Why do they act like that?

    Any group of humans acts like their ancestors did. They do what has worked historically. Europeans still have the basic social institutions of their distant Central Asian ancestors, and the social institutions of the Greeks and Romans. (The present disorganization is from an attempted rejection of these institutions, IMHO from the shock of the world wars 1914-1946 or so, which came very near to ending civilization, see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_nuclear_close_calls) Why? Well, the European descended can't do anything else (Even the idea of putting women in charge of the society to end the threat of war is Greek -- see the play Lysistrata, Aristophanes.).

    Same with the African descended: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bantu_expansion . Go to a large city and see directly how the Bantu expansion worked. In essence, it makes the area unlivable for anybody except Bantu Expansion, essentially by treating them as prey animals. The inter-group casualties are simply a byproduct of this treatment -- everybody is treated as prey animals.

    Han Chinese do much the same, except that they add an intensive resource exploitation that makes it difficult or impossible for non-Han to live with Han. Even Jewish attempts to establish a colony in China failed.

    As for the modern synthesis of industrial society -- well, that seems to be impossible for any group whatsoever to live in. Note that the only groups that thrive in industrial societies are groups that distance themselves from it (Hasidim, Mennonites, Gypsies, Latin Americans, etc.). Those who try to participate (Reform Jews, many European groups, Han Chinese, some remnants of the old Anglo Saxons) develop below replacement fertility and will, eventually, quietly vanish. Which will be a problem for the groups distant from industrial society, but after a bit of adjustment they will continue to exist as they have "always" existed, and as similar groups now exist in Africa. Sort of like the bad boxer who had just been knocked out by the reigning champion at the start of the second round: "I really had him worried in the second round. He thought he'd killed me." The groups that have distanced themselves are like the reining champion - worried for a while, but victorious.

    And that's the current state of the chess board. Your move.

  38. Blacks have a tendency to hypertension, so those taking medicine for that condition will quite possibly be hard hit. Florida and Louisiana will be worst because it travels and stays viable in the air best in moist and humid conditions

    It is a respiratory virus. A cough is the major symptom, so a cough is how it spreads. A cough sends viral particles eight metres, equivalent to a flame thrower, but unlike a flamethrower it hangs in the air where you can walk though it.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8162697/Social-distancing-EIGHT-metres-avoid-coronavirus-risk.html
    ‘Given the turbulent puff cloud dynamic model, recommendations for separations of three feet to six feet (one metre to two metres) may underestimate the distance, timescale, and persistence over which the cloud and its pathogenic payload travel, thus generating an underappreciated potential exposure range for a healthcare worker.

    It is not clear how long the viral particles are viable though, probably not long at all being blown about in the external environment, because long lasting pathogens (TB measles) are much more lethal than COVID-19 is.

    Even for normal talking he is way too close; literally billions of virus particles in tiny droplets must be expelled when someone is talking, loud and emphatically. As a people blacks are loud. Bullhorn would be ideal. If you watch those cop shows sometimes they complain about spittle hitting them in the face when an agitated member of the public is trying to explain themselves.

    I've also heard experts say the opposite. That the greater UV radiation from sunlight and greater humidity limit its spread and respiratory viruses in general.

    The virus is expelled via water droplets when you cough. If you cough underwater, your cough travels a lot smaller of a distance than it does when you cough on land into the air.
  39. A few more thoughts.

    -It’s interesting that all this confrontational behavior is coming from the local Black women in the neighborhood. I wonder where the local Black men are at.

    -It’s also interesting that so many of those cops are Hispanic/Mexican. I wonder what they (and their families) think of all the confrontational Blacks they deal with on a daily basis. It’d be fascinating to see what type of conversations they have around the dinner table.

    -In most neighborhoods, everybody stays indoors all the time and hardly talks to their neighbors. It seems like Blacks still have a very communitarian culture, in some respects. This seems like the sort of thing that Whites could learn from. I’m not advocating that Whites act like jungle animals, but I do think it’d be a good idea for Whites to hang out more with their neighbors, like they used to in past decades. More neighborhood BBQs. Inviting each other over for birthdays, perhaps even weddings and family celebrations. If Whites were more interconnected with their fellow Whites, they’d have an easier time organizing themselves at the group-level and exercising clout.

    -Compare today’s South-Central LA to what it was like back in the 50s. 50s era South-Central LA had low real estate prices, little street crime, mostly-white demographics, amiable neighbors, lots of high-paying jobs, wives who could afford to stay home, no PC, sane culture, relatively few immigrants, no rap music, thin people, little traffic. When you look at the neighborhood today, it’s amazing how much the place has changed. It’s at times like this when you realize how much has been lost…

    In theory I agree. In practice, well .... I recently helped move a family member from her old majority black neighborhood to a new majority white neighborhood. In the old neighborhood, she barely knew most of her immediate neighbors. In the new neighborhood, neighbors really do get together for the sole reason that they are neighbors ...

    ... to talk about SWPL BS and sports.

    It's not exactly Beverly Hills but if you take a virtual drive down Florence in Google Maps, it looks like a lot of commercial strips in working class areas all over America - gas stations, auto parts stores, cell phone stores, liquor stores, Chinese take out. Yes, if you look closely there are little hints - the local mini-market has iron burglar bars on all the windows. The grim looking, repurposed from some other use "Love & Joy Bible Church" (are there churches that are not Bible Churches?) has more ironwork and could not be mistaken for Notre Dame. But overall it's not that different looking.

    Generally speaking in America, ghettos are repurposed. No one builds a brand new ghetto. They start out being populated by some other ethnic group and then at some point the white people flee and are replaced by blacks. So physically the building stock looks just like other neighborhoods where the white people have not yet fled. Sometimes if the neighborhoods were built at the same time or by the same developer, they can look virtually identical.

    If male Negroes have no interest in the birthdays of their daughters, nieces, granddaughters, sisters, and female cousins (as you suggest, and which suggestion I am not disputing), it is only one more aspect of their dysfunctional behaviour.

    Notwithstanding pink balloons and squealing girls dressed like princesses or fairies running amok, white men (and, to be fair, also Oriental and even mestizo men) are not missing out on their beloved female children's birthday parties out of some preposterous, misplaced sense of masculine pride or disinterest. And while these races' boys are as likely to shun such things as Negro boys, their parents are equally likely to be socialising and civilising those boys by having them at least show up to present a gift and well wishes even if they may then leave (since the little girl celebrating is as likely to not want boys around as her brothers and cousins are to not want to go to a girl's party, the disproportionate genders of the children not so remarkable – after puberty, of course, all this stuff changes dramatically).

    The street signs indicate that this is near 54th and 4th, around the corner from Metro Division 5, which explains how the cops mustered so much manpower quickly.

    My 2002 article on the Rodney King riot pointed out that in the 2000 census, the Florence and Normandie neighborhood was 60% female. There’s been a quiet debate for a long time about the lack of black males in Censuses in poor neighborhoods. Are they dead? In prison? Or are they just holed up from the authorities?

    Steve, Aren't you finally getting to the point where you recognize that black people in the US have a genuinely different and separate culture from the main culture? And black people like that separation, especially because they don't have to work conventionally, and still the largess rolls in.

    It is past time to recognize that some people like to live in ways very different than others, and let them live it, warts, Coronavirus® sgam, birthday parties and all. Let them tax themselves, hire cops and courts, make laws, and run medical clinics if they so chose. Or not. It is their business, not mine or yours.

    This Coronavirus® is a big scam, but the changes it is driving in society are not artificial or to be taken lightly. Black people may find that real separatism is possible in ways they could not imagine a few short weeks ago. IF things go on as they might, I do not think that there are going to be many (if any) police responses to ghetto service requests. Self policing, in other words. A great idea, I think, and long past time to try it out.

    Setting aside the whole “is this even America ?!” thing, if they put on some surgical masks and medical type gloves (which they all carry anyway afaik), it would reinforce the signal that this IS a health issue rather than “go home because i’m a cop and i said so”.

     

    This is an excellent point. Cops sans protective gear are signaling that the threat's not real, and this crowd dispersion thing is just another game.

    There was a female cop here in HK who came down with the virus last week; she was also observed carrying out her duties without wearing a mask, which is borderline unthinkable here at the moment. Is this a need for cops to signal their toughness? Seems like maybe not the best time for it.

    A tangent on the “personal protective equipment” and the “are we really taking this seriously?”.

    Something i think my mom pointed out a few years ago that seems strange is that in the US doctors and nurses, even in hospitals, wear their work clothes to / from work.

    It also came up in a few of the testimonial threads from doctors that have been linked over the past several days and i also heard it in some radio stories: doctors and nurses working in ER / critical care worry about how they’re going to decontaminate when getting home. e.g. one mentioned he takes his scrubs off in the garage and jumps into the shower.

    Where i live it’s common to see nurses in scrubs in stores etc. in the evenings.

    So, especially in this infectious period, wouldn’t it make sense to set up a system where people change out of street clothes into work clothes and shoes at work and then back again before they leave. And maybe even shower at work too before they leave?
    I’m not saying this as something that should be imposed on people, but i assume they’d actually feel better / safer doing that. Like the gym ( … if it’s a nicer gym). What am i missing?

    I've wondered that too. My neighbor is a thoracic surgery nurse. Often in the morning she comes by walking her dog in her scrubs, bends down and picks up after the filthy little creature, then goes off to work and assists on open chest surgeries all day. Is putting a gown on over compromised clothes really a failsafe? It does seem as if there could be a better system involving showering at the hospital at the beginning and end of the shift and donning fresh, uncompromised clothing.

    On the 10th anniversary of the Rodney King riot I walked around the Florence & Normandie neighborhood where it broke out:

    https://www.upi.com/Top_News/2002/04/29/Commentary-LA-10-years-after/72621020098298/?ur3=1

    The residential streets are not bad, although the commercial streets are depressing.

    The few times I ventured into South Central, I was struck by how the housing stock made it look sort of like Los Feliz. Although it must be said, Vermont Ave was a cooler place to hang out than Florence and Normandie.

    I suppose it’s the cultural isolation and sameness that made it so unsatisfied: sort of like the difference between living in Park Slope and Gerritsen Beach. (Although of course, fifty years or so ago those neighborhoods would have been a lot more identical.)

    Seriously. Those people live in literal paradise.

    Given their obesity, they obviously have enough food to eat. Not to mention free schooling and a reasonable degree of healthcare access (Medicaid).

    It's amazing the degree of attitude that those Blacks have. If we were a sane country (which we clearly are not), we'd send those Blacks to Appalachia, Idaho, or some desolate place in the U.S. Then we'd bring back all those mild Midwestern types that used to populate LA, back when LA was an American city.

    Sadly, this is just a dream.

    Meanwhile, in Israel, the Jews are bulldozing the homes of Palestinians (who've lived there for many centuries) and giving their land to Jewish families. Israel is a country that we've given hundreds of billions of dollars to in aid, not to mention many decades of unyielding support. You can't get elected to dog catcher in DC without praising Israel, but for some reason nobody ever seems to ever learn anything from them.... Funny how that works.....

    Second, South Central Los Angeles, which is heavily single family homes, looks like paradise in late March with the sun out and the lawns all green. (Of course, late March is when the Rodney King riot started.)

     

    Of course it does. LA is a world-class city. We'd all be lucky to live in a place like LA.

    Why do they act like that?

    Any group of humans acts like their ancestors did. They do what has worked historically. Europeans still have the basic social institutions of their distant Central Asian ancestors, and the social institutions of the Greeks and Romans. (The present disorganization is from an attempted rejection of these institutions, IMHO from the shock of the world wars 1914-1946 or so, which came very near to ending civilization, see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_nuclear_close_calls) Why? Well, the European descended can’t do anything else (Even the idea of putting women in charge of the society to end the threat of war is Greek — see the play Lysistrata, Aristophanes.).

    Same with the African descended: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bantu_expansion . Go to a large city and see directly how the Bantu expansion worked. In essence, it makes the area unlivable for anybody except Bantu Expansion, essentially by treating them as prey animals. The inter-group casualties are simply a byproduct of this treatment — everybody is treated as prey animals.

    Han Chinese do much the same, except that they add an intensive resource exploitation that makes it difficult or impossible for non-Han to live with Han. Even Jewish attempts to establish a colony in China failed.

    As for the modern synthesis of industrial society — well, that seems to be impossible for any group whatsoever to live in. Note that the only groups that thrive in industrial societies are groups that distance themselves from it (Hasidim, Mennonites, Gypsies, Latin Americans, etc.). Those who try to participate (Reform Jews, many European groups, Han Chinese, some remnants of the old Anglo Saxons) develop below replacement fertility and will, eventually, quietly vanish. Which will be a problem for the groups distant from industrial society, but after a bit of adjustment they will continue to exist as they have “always” existed, and as similar groups now exist in Africa. Sort of like the bad boxer who had just been knocked out by the reigning champion at the start of the second round: “I really had him worried in the second round. He thought he’d killed me.” The groups that have distanced themselves are like the reining champion – worried for a while, but victorious.

    And that’s the current state of the chess board. Your move.

    A few more thoughts.

    -It's interesting that all this confrontational behavior is coming from the local Black women in the neighborhood. I wonder where the local Black men are at.

    -It's also interesting that so many of those cops are Hispanic/Mexican. I wonder what they (and their families) think of all the confrontational Blacks they deal with on a daily basis. It'd be fascinating to see what type of conversations they have around the dinner table.

    -In most neighborhoods, everybody stays indoors all the time and hardly talks to their neighbors. It seems like Blacks still have a very communitarian culture, in some respects. This seems like the sort of thing that Whites could learn from. I'm not advocating that Whites act like jungle animals, but I do think it'd be a good idea for Whites to hang out more with their neighbors, like they used to in past decades. More neighborhood BBQs. Inviting each other over for birthdays, perhaps even weddings and family celebrations. If Whites were more interconnected with their fellow Whites, they'd have an easier time organizing themselves at the group-level and exercising clout.

    -Compare today's South-Central LA to what it was like back in the 50s. 50s era South-Central LA had low real estate prices, little street crime, mostly-white demographics, amiable neighbors, lots of high-paying jobs, wives who could afford to stay home, no PC, sane culture, relatively few immigrants, no rap music, thin people, little traffic. When you look at the neighborhood today, it's amazing how much the place has changed. It's at times like this when you realize how much has been lost...

    By the way, can anybody find any videos of Hispanics behaving this way? Are there any Hispanic neighborhoods (other than Puerto Ricans and Dominicans) in which this type of behavior occurs?

    “at times like this when you realize how much has been lost…”

    Some people in the UK are still not getting the message about the severity of the coronavirus pandemic and the government needs to be more inventive with its information campaign, a police chief has said.

    David Jamieson, the police and crime commissioner for the West Midlands, said certain demographics in the country were struggling to access important information due to language barriers.

    Certain demographics? What could he mean?

    Earlier this week the government said it was investigating anecdotal evidence suggesting people’s religious convictions and fears of social isolation could be leading to a sharp rise in the number of coronavirus transmissions in the area.

    “A family ignored the lockdown restrictions and held a birthday party in Great Horton.

    West Yorkshire Police said they attended the address last night (Saturday) and witnessed between 25 and 30 extended family and friends celebrating the occasion, despite social distancing rules banning such get-togethers.

    Police also said they dealt with a pub landlord who had decided to have a lock-in and ‘let a couple of mates pop over for a few beers and a game of pool’. “

    When I gave a talk at USC a while back, I foolishly booked an apartment on a commercial street, though airbnb, without looking into the neighborhood in which I booked. If it’s in walking distance of the University of Spoiled Children, it can’t be that bad, right, white boy?

    But indeed, there was a striking difference between the residential side streets and the black folks that live on them (who looked like decent, self-respecting working class people), and the adjacent commercial street and the black folks that live on it (dangerous, degraded drug fiends). Liberalism is the worst thing that’s happened to black Americans since slavery.

    I was in London at the start of the Rodney King riots. This was back when London was still an English city, and even though the British are familiar with Yanks, there were so few foreigners that I could be readily noticed as a foreigner b/c of my accent, which at the time was still perceived as mildly exotic. Lots of people I came across had never met a real live American before.

    In the early phases I guess the news services were still scrambling for riot information, and a number of the newspapers ran file photos of typical non-burning South Central streets to give some local flavor: large, spacious, sturdy houses with big pleasant porches and lawns. While sitting with friends in restaurants or walking down the street talking, random Londoners would notice my accent and buttonhole me with the newspaper: "Oi mate, yer a Yank, can you please explain what on earth these people are so mad about? We all thought they lived in filthy slums! I'd give me right arm to live in a house like that!"

    There are definitely similarities between the London wwc accent and Aussie. I've noticed confusion generally where non-Brit, non-Aussie people confuse Brits and Australians. Lots of Australian slang is British in origin. Of course there has been flow in the other direction too.

    Even confused me once. Twenty odd years ago I rang an office in London and the female receptionist I spoke to had such a strong east end accent I thought initially she was an Aussie. (That accent is at the point of disappearing altogether thanks to race replacement). Despite the fact I was born in London, that cockney accent sounded very different to mine

    , @Anonymous
    "Oi mate" is typical British slang, especially so of Cockneys. For some reason a lot of American seem to associate British slang as Australian, which is similar because it comes from British slang unsurprisingly.

    I assume this is because Americans associate a "British accent" with the largely slang-free "Queen's English" spoken by people like Hugh Grant or on shows like Downton Abbey, so when they hear more relaxed British English with a lot of slang terms they assume it is Australian.

    Wuhan COVID-19 Death Toll May Be in Tens of Thousands, Data on Cremations and Shipments of Urns Suggest

    Astack of urns at a funeral home in Wuhan, the city’s official cremation rates, and reports of an overwhelmed health care system have prompted speculation that Wuhan’s real COVID-19 death toll could be in the tens of thousands—despite the Chinese government reporting 2,535 deaths from just over 50,000 coronavirus infections.

    The coronavirus outbreak was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei in December 2019, before it then spread around the world, killing more than 33,000 globally as of Sunday. China’s aggressive containment methods have slowed the virus domestically, with official new cases reported plummeting in the past few weeks. So far, Beijing has confirmed roughly 81,000 cases and 3,300 deaths, mostly in Wuhan, the epicenter of the virus’ outbreak. But many people, including U.S. politicians, have accused China of underplaying their real coronavirus death figure.

    Their skepticism were sparked by Chinese officials’ attempts to cover up the severity of the outbreak in the early stages—before the disease became widespread overseas—and the numerous revisions made to how domestic cases are counted. Wuhan’s medical system was overwhelmed during the height of the outbreak in China, which further raises questions as to the officially reported 2,535 deaths.

She was annoyed enough to mention what I said to a staff doctor. I told the doctor that when you dress like my car mechanic I get to question your credentials. Actually my mechanic wears matching blue pants and shirt with his name embroidered on it. Nurses looked so professional when they wore crisp whites, with white hose and shoes, but that was a long time ago.

    Steve, Aren’t you finally getting to the point where you recognize that black people in the US have a genuinely different and separate culture from the main culture? And black people like that separation, especially because they don’t have to work conventionally, and still the largess rolls in.

    It is past time to recognize that some people like to live in ways very different than others, and let them live it, warts, Coronavirus® sgam, birthday parties and all. Let them tax themselves, hire cops and courts, make laws, and run medical clinics if they so chose. Or not. It is their business, not mine or yours.

    This Coronavirus® is a big scam, but the changes it is driving in society are not artificial or to be taken lightly. Black people may find that real separatism is possible in ways they could not imagine a few short weeks ago. IF things go on as they might, I do not think that there are going to be many (if any) police responses to ghetto service requests. Self policing, in other words. A great idea, I think, and long past time to try it out.

Johnny Walker made a germane and reasonable observation of the irony in the bad behaviour of Negroes who have displaced Europeans and have no appreciation for their good fortune (as well as the foolishness of the Europeans for acquiescing to their own displacement for fear of being "racist") and those same Europeans' love of a nation that unapologetically displaces others with far mire ancient claims to the land (never mind not acquiescing in their own displacement — the Hebrews are shamelessly displacing innocent third parties for Lebensraum, thank you very much!).

    Well let's break it down, shall we?
    Mr. Walker made 4 points in his post:

    1. Jews are bulldozing Palestinian homes (I'm not sure)
    2. Palestinians have lived there for centuries (yes they have)
    3. Palestinian land is given by Israel to Jews (isn't that what the settlements are?)
    4. Israel is a country to which we've given billions in aid (yes we have)

    So 3/4 of his points are demonstrably true. One is in contention. However, Israeli bulldozers do get into trouble now and then (memba Rachel Corrie? yeah, I memba!) so I'll give him a half-true there.

    Then you throw Assad, the Taliban, Boku (sic) Haram, and Mexican cartels into the mix. Here's the thing: None of them tell Whites that they are literally Hitler for wanting their own country. Only "da JOOS" do that.

    Now, here's another thing: I don't give a whistling Scheisse about what Israel or "da JOOS" do to the Palestinians. I wish I had a country that cared about Whites the way Israel does its people. I wish that I could enlist or commission in a military as based as the IDF. I would gladly bulldoze my way across North America while wearing a uniform.

    Why don't you just own it?

    We do not require all of our politicians, on pain of political blockade, to sign loyalty oaths to Mexican cartels, nor is it required attendance for them to be seen at the annual Mexican cartel fund-raising shindig.

    A tangent on the "personal protective equipment" and the "are we really taking this seriously?".

    Something i think my mom pointed out a few years ago that seems strange is that in the US doctors and nurses, even in hospitals, wear their work clothes to / from work.

    It also came up in a few of the testimonial threads from doctors that have been linked over the past several days and i also heard it in some radio stories: doctors and nurses working in ER / critical care worry about how they're going to decontaminate when getting home. e.g. one mentioned he takes his scrubs off in the garage and jumps into the shower.

    Where i live it's common to see nurses in scrubs in stores etc. in the evenings.

    So, especially in this infectious period, wouldn't it make sense to set up a system where people change out of street clothes into work clothes and shoes at work and then back again before they leave. And maybe even shower at work too before they leave?
    I'm not saying this as something that should be imposed on people, but i assume they'd actually feel better / safer doing that. Like the gym ( ... if it's a nicer gym). What am i missing?

    I’ve wondered that too. My neighbor is a thoracic surgery nurse. Often in the morning she comes by walking her dog in her scrubs, bends down and picks up after the filthy little creature, then goes off to work and assists on open chest surgeries all day. Is putting a gown on over compromised clothes really a failsafe? It does seem as if there could be a better system involving showering at the hospital at the beginning and end of the shift and donning fresh, uncompromised clothing.

    • Replies: @vhrm
    So i read up on this a bit and it looks like going into an operating room everybody changes into hospital provided scrubs.

    In Labor and Delivery areas they also do the same at least in some hospitals.

    However, for other areas of hospitals people just wear their street clothes.

    Apparently this aspect of US custom has been under discussion for a while but the experts consider it a non-issue on a hand wavy sort of dismissal. e.g
    https://www.wgbh.org/news/local-news/2019/01/29/is-it-an-issue-that-hospital-workers-wear-scrubs-outside


    OTOH this small study found that 7 out the 10 nurses tested had MRSA on their scrubs after a 12 hour shift even though they wore gowns on top while caring for some "isolation" patients.
    (they also had various other bacteria they tested for)

    , @Chrisnonymous
    She probably changes at work into disinfected scrubs provided by the OR. Also, if she is in the OR, she is likely wearing sterile gowns over any other clothes. Rest assured, no hospital is ignoring some ongoing source of surgical infections, which are a major financial loss as insurance companies make hospitals eat the costs of avoidable complications.

    On the 10th anniversary of the Rodney King riot I walked around the Florence & Normandie neighborhood where it broke out:

    https://www.upi.com/Top_News/2002/04/29/Commentary-LA-10-years-after/72621020098298/?ur3=1

    The residential streets are not bad, although the commercial streets are depressing.

    It’s not exactly Beverly Hills but if you take a virtual drive down Florence in Google Maps, it looks like a lot of commercial strips in working class areas all over America – gas stations, auto parts stores, cell phone stores, liquor stores, Chinese take out. Yes, if you look closely there are little hints – the local mini-market has iron burglar bars on all the windows. The grim looking, repurposed from some other use “Love & Joy Bible Church” (are there churches that are not Bible Churches?) has more ironwork and could not be mistaken for Notre Dame. But overall it’s not that different looking.

    Generally speaking in America, ghettos are repurposed. No one builds a brand new ghetto. They start out being populated by some other ethnic group and then at some point the white people flee and are replaced by blacks. So physically the building stock looks just like other neighborhoods where the white people have not yet fled. Sometimes if the neighborhoods were built at the same time or by the same developer, they can look virtually identical.

    It usually takes an American to notice those subtleties. Even not-so-subtleties. You and I know what a chain link front yard fence means. A foreigner won't necessarily understand the difference between that and a picket fence. Or the intricacies of American church nomenclature.

    As it happens, I was talking to an Israeli friend about Tom Wolfe's Back to Blood. She read it and liked it. She's a smart person. But she missed the point on just about everything! Right from the start, where she didn't pick up on the fact that Edward T. Topping IV is an über-WASP. (She thought he was just "some American guy" and gave it no further thought.) She didn't know anything about Miami's demographics. Didn't know about the one-drop rule.

    Come to think of it, she could have learned all those things from the book itself if she'd just read it more carefully. But you know the way Tom Wolfe's books are so lavishly detailed, you can have a good time focusing on a set of issues quite disjoint from what happens to strike another person.

    If male Negroes have no interest in the birthdays of their daughters, nieces, granddaughters, sisters, and female cousins (as you suggest, and which suggestion I am not disputing), it is only one more aspect of their dysfunctional behaviour.

    Notwithstanding pink balloons and squealing girls dressed like princesses or fairies running amok, white men (and, to be fair, also Oriental and even mestizo men) are not missing out on their beloved female children’s birthday parties out of some preposterous, misplaced sense of masculine pride or disinterest. And while these races’ boys are as likely to shun such things as Negro boys, their parents are equally likely to be socialising and civilising those boys by having them at least show up to present a gift and well wishes even if they may then leave (since the little girl celebrating is as likely to not want boys around as her brothers and cousins are to not want to go to a girl’s party, the disproportionate genders of the children not so remarkable – after puberty, of course, all this stuff changes dramatically).

    Blacks have a tendency to hypertension, so those taking medicine for that condition will quite possibly be hard hit. Florida and Louisiana will be worst because it travels and stays viable in the air best in moist and humid conditions

    'Given the turbulent puff cloud dynamic model, recommendations for separations of three feet to six feet (one metre to two metres) may underestimate the distance, timescale, and persistence over which the cloud and its pathogenic payload travel, thus generating an underappreciated potential exposure range for a healthcare worker.
     
    It is not clear how long the viral particles are viable though, probably not long at all being blown about in the external environment, because long lasting pathogens (TB measles) are much more lethal than COVID-19 is.

    Even for normal talking he is way too close; literally billions of virus particles in tiny droplets must be expelled when someone is talking, loud and emphatically. As a people blacks are loud. Bullhorn would be ideal. If you watch those cop shows sometimes they complain about spittle hitting them in the face when an agitated member of the public is trying to explain themselves.

    So would a negative ion generator be useful in a room to reduce the number of infectious particles in the air?

    That’s a joke right? Any speculation as to how many of the people in the video will be dead in 30 days due to the plague? I bet zero. To my eye I did not see anyone that looked elderly with preexisting conditions. And nobody cares if the the young black ladies and their kids die, so this is a farce.

    @4:00 Does the cop reading from the card, and threatening tear gas/ rubber bullets, have an Australian accent? WTF? Also notice the cop with the green teargas/rubber bullet launcher and matching green sling threatening peacefully gathered women and children.

    It is interesting that the cops could not choose between Community policing theatrics (no riot gear) vs Covid hysteria theatrics (face masks gloves). The cops know this is BS and have no idea why they are being called on to break up a children’s party. I feel for their embarrassment. The cops should be issued antiseptic fog guns for their new role.

    Thanks for all the posts showing a lack of emergency room activity and tariqnasheed. So far the only crowded ERs are Elmhurst Queens USA and Bergamo Lombardy Italy.

    A few more thoughts.

    -It's interesting that all this confrontational behavior is coming from the local Black women in the neighborhood. I wonder where the local Black men are at.

    -It's also interesting that so many of those cops are Hispanic/Mexican. I wonder what they (and their families) think of all the confrontational Blacks they deal with on a daily basis. It'd be fascinating to see what type of conversations they have around the dinner table.

    -In most neighborhoods, everybody stays indoors all the time and hardly talks to their neighbors. It seems like Blacks still have a very communitarian culture, in some respects. This seems like the sort of thing that Whites could learn from. I'm not advocating that Whites act like jungle animals, but I do think it'd be a good idea for Whites to hang out more with their neighbors, like they used to in past decades. More neighborhood BBQs. Inviting each other over for birthdays, perhaps even weddings and family celebrations. If Whites were more interconnected with their fellow Whites, they'd have an easier time organizing themselves at the group-level and exercising clout.

    -Compare today's South-Central LA to what it was like back in the 50s. 50s era South-Central LA had low real estate prices, little street crime, mostly-white demographics, amiable neighbors, lots of high-paying jobs, wives who could afford to stay home, no PC, sane culture, relatively few immigrants, no rap music, thin people, little traffic. When you look at the neighborhood today, it's amazing how much the place has changed. It's at times like this when you realize how much has been lost...

    By the way, can anybody find any videos of Hispanics behaving this way? Are there any Hispanic neighborhoods (other than Puerto Ricans and Dominicans) in which this type of behavior occurs?

    Johnny,
    They hate Blacks. They gentrify them from all their neighborhoods with extreme hate. The only reason why they vote Democrat is for the self interest(economic). Once they become middle income and have stuff to lose, they will become very politically Anti Black

  102. Blacks in Detroit and Milwaukee are starting to get whomped by the epidemic.

    Blacks in Milwaukee and Detroit have a lot less natural Vitamin D than people in beautiful, sunny,
    South LA.

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5007007/
    “One potential mechanistic explanation for these findings relates to differences in serum vitamin D levels. Sunlight exposure in northern latitudes is limited both by oblique incidence of the sun rays as well as colder temperatures limiting skin exposure to UV light. Solar UVB converts 7-dehydroxycholesterol in the skin to previtamin D3 that in turn is metabolized to vitamin D3 [25(OH)D]. 25(OH)D is metabolized into 1,25 dehydroxyvitamin D (1,25(OH)2D3), which has been shown to suppress inflammation in vitro and in animal studies. [11–13] Consistent with these preclinical studies, higher serum vitamin D levels are associated with a decreased risk of IBD as well as a decrease in symptom severity. ”

    Black people north of the latitude of about Albany are incapable of making enough vitamin D in the winter to keep healthy: they MUST supplement. I imagine LA blacks are wealthier than Detroit and Milwaukee blacks, which will also positively affect their ability to fight off the virus.

    Mandatory masks, and mandatory use of hand sanitizer at the entrance and stores would not be a big issue. They should do other stuff--bleaching down carts, bleaching down checkout surfaces, maybe something with UV. But some really simple steps can really wallop the crap out of transmission.

    But guess what. We weren't prepared for even those obvious simple steps--epic fail of our globalist super-state. And still aren't rallying to take those steps now.

    It's not exactly Beverly Hills but if you take a virtual drive down Florence in Google Maps, it looks like a lot of commercial strips in working class areas all over America - gas stations, auto parts stores, cell phone stores, liquor stores, Chinese take out. Yes, if you look closely there are little hints - the local mini-market has iron burglar bars on all the windows.

But overall it's not that different looking.

    Generally speaking in America, ghettos are repurposed. No one builds a brand new ghetto. They start out being populated by some other ethnic group and then at some point the white people flee and are replaced by blacks. So physically the building stock looks just like other neighborhoods where the white people have not yet fled. Sometimes if the neighborhoods were built at the same time or by the same developer, they can look virtually identical.

    “On the south bank of the Thames to the east of Greenwich stand smart, futuristic-looking tower blocks of riverside apartments.

    They are the most recent phase of development in the new town, Thamesmead, which was 40 years old last year.

    It was built on a wave of optimism in the 1960s, as a panacea to London’s overcrowded inner city areas, and opened in a blaze of publicity.

    But in the past five years it has earned a reputation as the fraud capital of the UK.

    Andrew Goodwill, director of the Third Man Group, a fraud prevention service which screens internet transactions to help retailers detect credit card fraud, said the company’s database revealed Thamesmead’s SE28 to have the worst record of any postcode in the country.

    “Last year we indicated it was the capital in the UK for credit card fraud. And actually we went as far as to say it was probably the capital of Europe for credit card fraud as well.”

    He said the company had identified an entire street in the town where there was evidence of people being involved in fraud at every address.”

    As you say, all of those cops should be wearing masks and face shields. Why aren't they?

    Which is more irresponsible, some randoms having a party or the government enforcers who drive all over and interact with tens or hundreds of people a day having no qualms about about spreading the supposed plague?

    The cops each interact with various people in the community. Then they get together and interact with each-other, then go out to the community some more. You'd think they'd take some precautions.

    Setting aside the whole "is this even America ?!" thing, if they put on some surgical masks and medical type gloves (which they all carry anyway afaik), it would reinforce the signal that this IS a health issue rather than "go home because i'm a cop and i said so".

    But, no, even though mask making is highly automated (those N95s are not lovingly hand molded - they get stamped out by machines by the millions) we had to move all the mask manufacturing to the very nation that is the cause of the epidemic and needs all those mask for its own people.

Because our public health authorities couldn't stockpile masks because they were too busy fighting racism or something to worry about old fashioned things like epidemics. Because even the machines that make masks and the raw materials for them aren't made here anymore so it is going to take a long time to gear up mask making. Because hospitals are still throwing out millions of perfectly good slightly used masks every day because its cheaper to buy new ones that to sterilize the old ones even though they are perfectly capable of being sterilized (but there's no infrastructure for it).

    Nurses are mostly women. Much like teachers, there will be a tendency to carry on about how heroic and hardworking they are while also complaining about low pay and poor working conditions. These are the people that like to go on social media saying, "I work in healthcare and..." They will not get the attention they crave if they say, "Everything is normal. I'm not particularly important today."

    A tangent on the "personal protective equipment" and the "are we really taking this seriously?".

    Something i think my mom pointed out a few years ago that seems strange is that in the US doctors and nurses, even in hospitals, wear their work clothes to / from work.

    It also came up in a few of the testimonial threads from doctors that have been linked over the past several days and i also heard it in some radio stories: doctors and nurses working in ER / critical care worry about how they're going to decontaminate when getting home. e.g. one mentioned he takes his scrubs off in the garage and jumps into the shower.

    Where i live it's common to see nurses in scrubs in stores etc. in the evenings.

    So, especially in this infectious period, wouldn't it make sense to set up a system where people change out of street clothes into work clothes and shoes at work and then back again before they leave. And maybe even shower at work too before they leave?
    I'm not saying this as something that should be imposed on people, but i assume they'd actually feel better / safer doing that. Like the gym ( ... if it's a nicer gym). What am i missing?

    Where i live it’s common to see nurses in scrubs in stores etc. in the evenings.

    Indeed, it’s a common sight everywhere. And even if they wash their clothes and their hair, do they wash the inside of the car they drove home in wearing those clothes?

    Infection control in hospitals is probably like a lot of things in contemporary America – mostly for show.

    • Replies: @Chrisnonymous
    For many nurses and hospital staff, their workplaces are probably not significantly dirtier than their communities. Seriously ill and infectious patients are going to be concentrated in some places like ICUs or specialized units. Also some places like ERs are dirty by their nature. But, eg, an oncology unit or OR should be relatively clean.

    Most people are not aware how "dirty" everyday life is. Bacteria, viruses, fungi are everywhere.

    The topic is perfectly relevant: Steve mentioned how paradaisical southern Mexinchifornia is, contrasting it with the way certain inhabitants thereof behave, which behaviour is the main ifea of his post and its comments. Johnny Walker made a germane and reasonable observation of the irony in the bad behaviour of Negroes who have displaced Europeans and have no appreciation for their good fortune (as well as the foolishness of the Europeans for acquiescing to their own displacement for fear of being “racist”) and those same Europeans’ love of a nation that unapologetically displaces others with far mire ancient claims to the land (never mind not acquiescing in their own displacement — the Hebrews are shamelessly displacing innocent third parties for Lebensraum, thank you very much!).

If we were a sane country (which we clearly are not), we'd send those Blacks to Appalachia, Idaho, or some desolate place in the U.S. Then we'd bring back all those mild Midwestern types that used to populate LA, back when LA was an American city.

Right from the start, where she didn’t pick up on the fact that Edward T. Topping IV is an über-WASP. (She thought he was just “some American guy” and gave it no further thought.) She didn’t know anything about Miami’s demographics. Didn’t know about the one-drop rule.

    Come to think of it, she could have learned all those things from the book itself if she’d just read it more carefully.

    A lot of older Philly row houses have open front porches. In certain high crime neighborhoods (more Latino than black) it's become the norm to cage in your front porch with iron bars - the look ranges from somewhat ornamental to jail cell.

    I think it's not just because of burglary but because securing your home from home invasion is pretty normal in Latin America. It must have jarred Latino immigrants to realize that in America pretty much anyone with a tire iron could just walk right into your house.

    But unless you know this, you drive down the street in Philly and you reach a certain neighborhood and you suddenly see all these caged in front porches and you wonder what the hell is going on.

    Not just foreigners.

    Since moving from the city to a village, I've seen a lot of chain link, and at first it horrified me. It's around businesses and ballfields rather than residences, which don't need fences. It doesn't have the same connotations it does in the city.

    But it's still ugly and cheap. I understand the practical need for fences, yet they need not be eyesores. Look at New Orleans's wrought iron.

    (Interestingly, a suburb forced friends of mine to erect a fence after their Lab bit a jogger. The only economical choice was chain link. What that did to their and the neighbors' property values is arguable, but they eventually sent the dog back to the farm.)

    It is a respiratory virus. A cough is the major symptom, so a cough is how it spreads. A cough sends viral particles eight metres, equivalent to a flame thrower, but unlike a flamethrower it hangs in the air where you can walk though it.

    It is not clear how long the viral particles are viable though, probably not long at all being blown about in the external environment, because long lasting pathogens (TB measles) are much more lethal than COVID-19 is.

    Even for normal talking he is way too close; literally billions of virus particles in tiny droplets must be expelled when someone is talking, loud and emphatically. As a people blacks are loud.

Etc.

    Setting aside the whole “is this even America ?!” thing, if they put on some surgical masks and medical type gloves (which they all carry anyway afaik), it would reinforce the signal that this IS a health issue rather than “go home because i’m a cop and i said so”.

     

    This is an excellent point. Cops sans protective gear are signaling that the threat's not real, and this crowd dispersion thing is just another game.

    There was a female cop here in HK who came down with the virus last week; she was also observed carrying out her duties without wearing a mask, which is borderline unthinkable here at the moment. Is this a need for cops to signal their toughness? Seems like maybe not the best time for it.

    Isn’t there a shortage of PPE? That might explain it.

  130. Plenty of morons to go around. In my mostly white middle to upper middle class neighborhood, apparently the father in a house of 6 has been very sick and just was taken to the hospital to be put on oxygen…but all week their 4 kids have been playing all over the neighborhood with other kids, including one household where the parents knew about the sick dad and let their kids play with them anyhow.

    Of course now people are trying to organize a meal train for the family, but given how reckless they were it’s kind of hard to swallow.

    It usually takes an American to notice those subtleties. Even not-so-subtleties. You and I know what a chain link front yard fence means. A foreigner won't necessarily understand the difference between that and a picket fence. Or the intricacies of American church nomenclature.

    As it happens, I was talking to an Israeli friend about Tom Wolfe's Back to Blood. She read it and liked it. She's a smart person. But she missed the point on just about everything! Right from the start, where she didn't pick up on the fact that Edward T. Topping IV is an über-WASP. (She thought he was just "some American guy" and gave it no further thought.) She didn't know anything about Miami's demographics. Didn't know about the one-drop rule.

    Come to think of it, she could have learned all those things from the book itself if she'd just read it more carefully. But you know the way Tom Wolfe's books are so lavishly detailed, you can have a good time focusing on a set of issues quite disjoint from what happens to strike another person.

    A lot of older Philly row houses have open front porches. In certain high crime neighborhoods (more Latino than black) it’s become the norm to cage in your front porch with iron bars – the look ranges from somewhat ornamental to jail cell.

    I think it’s not just because of burglary but because securing your home from home invasion is pretty normal in Latin America. It must have jarred Latino immigrants to realize that in America pretty much anyone with a tire iron could just walk right into your house.

    But unless you know this, you drive down the street in Philly and you reach a certain neighborhood and you suddenly see all these caged in front porches and you wonder what the hell is going on.

    When my father drove me to Phillies games at Connie Mack Stadium circa 1970, we would see parked cars in various states of stripped-ness, up on blocks, sometimes entire engines missing. I don't know what neighborhoods those were, but you probably do.

    When a little black boy would offer to "watch your car, mister?" Dad would definitely pay the kid. It was a form of extortion. In retrospect, I don't know whey we didn't just park in a garage or lot somewhere. Or maybe that was in a lot! That part of the memory is fuzzy.

    Here in exurban Connecticut bliss, my father-in-law from Gypsy Land, Romania always marvels on visits at how I leave things like gas grills and chairs outside behind the house. Anybody could come and take them! (if they could get past my dog) but nobody does. He can't get his head around that.

    Not only is this filled with falsehoods

    Well let’s break it down, shall we?
    Mr. Walker made 4 points in his post:

    1. Jews are bulldozing Palestinian homes (I’m not sure)
    2. Palestinians have lived there for centuries (yes they have)
    3. Palestinian land is given by Israel to Jews (isn’t that what the settlements are?)
    4. Israel is a country to which we’ve given billions in aid (yes we have)

    So 3/4 of his points are demonstrably true. One is in contention. However, Israeli bulldozers do get into trouble now and then (memba Rachel Corrie? yeah, I memba!) so I’ll give him a half-true there.

    Then you throw Assad, the Taliban, Boku (sic) Haram, and Mexican cartels into the mix. Here’s the thing: None of them tell Whites that they are literally Hitler for wanting their own country. Only “da JOOS” do that.

    Now, here’s another thing: I don’t give a whistling Scheisse about what Israel or “da JOOS” do to the Palestinians. I wish I had a country that cared about Whites the way Israel does its people. I wish that I could enlist or commission in a military as based as the IDF. I would gladly bulldoze my way across North America while wearing a uniform.

    Why don’t you just own it?

    I saw what you did there. Neat trick. He didn't say billions he said HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS and you know that to be false so you chopped off two orders of magnitude in order to make the statement true.

    As you admit, Israel has largely stop bulldozing homes because Palestinians have largely stopped blowing themselves up at Jewish wedding banquets and other such places. Nowadays that happens more in London and Paris than in Tel Aviv. Don't say they didn't warn you.

    If you read Americans Abroad, Mark Twain's biggest observation about the Holy Land is that it was empty and desolate. A lot of "Palestinians" came in from other parts of Syria (the Ottomans considered it to be part of Syria, something Assad has never forgotten) and Egypt when the Zionists began settling the place and creating an economy with jobs (just like not a lot of Mexicans lived in California until white people did the same for California). Arabs went back and forth freely between Ottoman lands and didn't consider themselves to be especially "Palestinian". Arafat, the great "Palestinian" leader, was born in Cairo in 1929, long before the Jews expelled any Arabs. If Israel were to disappear, "Palestine" would be snatched up by its Arab neighbors again in a jiffy. In the 20 years that Jordan occupied the West Bank and Egypt ran Gaza, zero thought was given to giving the "Palestinians" their own state.

    Israeli settlements are made either on land that was government owned or purchased from its Arab owners. If the situation was reversed, there wouldn't be any Arab "settlements" in Israel - the whole place would be part of Dar al Islam and not a single Jew would remain alive.

    This is not remotely the same thing. Costo warehouses are vast so it is relatively easy to keep people the recommended 6 feet apart. Ideally (in terms of stopping contagion) they (and every other supermarket and grocery store) would be closed but then people might starve until we figured out a different food distribution method.

    Whoosh! I mean when looking at their actions, US governors don’t believe CoronaHoax is a serious threat. If it were TEOTWAWKI (AIFF), they would close everything, enforced by the military. So they have some other motive.

    Mandatory masks, and mandatory use of hand sanitizer at the entrance and stores would not be a big issue. They should do other stuff–bleaching down carts, bleaching down checkout surfaces, maybe something with UV. But some really simple steps can really wallop the crap out of transmission.

    But guess what. We weren’t prepared for even those obvious simple steps–epic fail of our globalist super-state. And still aren’t rallying to take those steps now.

    Agreed. People like Steve who like these shutdown and quarantine orders need to consider where these orders are coming from. In some cases, it's governors who ban potentially lifesaving/pandemic crushing drugs because Trump spoke approvingly of these drugs. The problem with arbitrary power is that we can't limit it just to forcing people to do social distancing. Look at Steve's blog posts about our leaders on issues other than Corona. Do we want to give these people arbitrary power?

    My favorite line is at the very end, from the nurse who allegedly took the pictures:

    “Maybe as a Jew i relate it to all of the Holocaust footage because that’s my only point of reference for such an image of humans,” he said. “[N]ever seen something quite like it.”

    eh. people are innumerate. Though of course if a gentile uttered that sentence they'd be castigated for trivializing the Holocaust.

    But, the nurse definitely gives of a traumatized vibe:


    “I never had the patience to sit with somebody I’d just met until they took their last breath. But I really liked this lady’s cardigan and pajamas so I decided to stay and get to know her a little,” he said over text message. “Her hair was elegantly done with a sharp, meticulous clip and casually pulled up with a bandana that matched her house clothes. Perhaps if she’d covered her face with it instead, she wouldn’t have ended up here in the first place. But she didn’t die alone.”
     
    He's either traumatized or a psycho.

    Considering that I'm feeling some anxiety and anger with just the media and shutdown,
    I can certainly see it could be quite rough for someone actually being hands on with the people who are dying on TOP of the media and political stuff.

    Not only is this filled with falsehoods, it has absolutely nothing to do with the topic at hand. You are infected, but with anti-Semitism. "Nice weather today" - Yes, but what about the JOOS? Meanwhile, lots of terrible things are going on all over the world (but especially the Muslim world) - Assad killing people, Taliban killing people, Boku Haram killing people, Mexican cartels killing people. All sorts of stuff going on all over the world but you only seem concerned about one little place. Strange, isn't it?

    We do not permit Boko Haram to direct our foreign policy.

    We do not give billions and billions and billions and billions in aid to Assad — in fact, we make war on him, at the behest of Guess Who.

    We do not bribe, blackmail, arm-twist and extort our legislators into passing blatantly anti-constitutional pro-Taliban laws favoring the Taliban over the rights of our own people.

    We do not require all of our politicians, on pain of political blockade, to sign loyalty oaths to Mexican cartels, nor is it required attendance for them to be seen at the annual Mexican cartel fund-raising shindig.

    The Shining Path do not exercise a shocking, crushing, overwhelming level of control in our media, legal, academic, financial and judicial institutions. The Shining Path do not work hand in glove with the FBI to decide who gets to speak on the Internet.

    The Chinese spy on us, scheme against us, lay long-term plans against us, and own trillions in our public debt, but we are not obliged, more or less at gunpoint, to perpetually proclaim them our Greatest Ally Ever like trained seals. No American politician is flown to China to pray at the Great Wall.

    You are a walking, talking illustration of the patently clear fact that anti-semitism does not exist in America, but semitism certainly does.

    And no, comically misspelling words does not give you a magical rhetorical victory over anybody, nor does it convince anyone except yourself. If Donald Trump starts calling it the Corbaloney Virus, does that mean we can all just go back to normal?

    A few more thoughts.

    -It's interesting that all this confrontational behavior is coming from the local Black women in the neighborhood. I wonder where the local Black men are at.

    -It's also interesting that so many of those cops are Hispanic/Mexican. I wonder what they (and their families) think of all the confrontational Blacks they deal with on a daily basis. It'd be fascinating to see what type of conversations they have around the dinner table.

    -In most neighborhoods, everybody stays indoors all the time and hardly talks to their neighbors. It seems like Blacks still have a very communitarian culture, in some respects. This seems like the sort of thing that Whites could learn from. I'm not advocating that Whites act like jungle animals, but I do think it'd be a good idea for Whites to hang out more with their neighbors, like they used to in past decades. More neighborhood BBQs. Inviting each other over for birthdays, perhaps even weddings and family celebrations. If Whites were more interconnected with their fellow Whites, they'd have an easier time organizing themselves at the group-level and exercising clout.

    -Compare today's South-Central LA to what it was like back in the 50s. 50s era South-Central LA had low real estate prices, little street crime, mostly-white demographics, amiable neighbors, lots of high-paying jobs, wives who could afford to stay home, no PC, sane culture, relatively few immigrants, no rap music, thin people, little traffic. When you look at the neighborhood today, it's amazing how much the place has changed. It's at times like this when you realize how much has been lost...

    By the way, can anybody find any videos of Hispanics behaving this way? Are there any Hispanic neighborhoods (other than Puerto Ricans and Dominicans) in which this type of behavior occurs?

    “it’d be a good idea for Whites to hang out more with their neighbors, like they used to in past decades.”

    In theory I agree. In practice, well …. I recently helped move a family member from her old majority black neighborhood to a new majority white neighborhood. In the old neighborhood, she barely knew most of her immediate neighbors. In the new neighborhood, neighbors really do get together for the sole reason that they are neighbors …

    … to talk about SWPL BS and sports.

    “If Whites were more interconnected with their fellow Whites, they’d have an easier time organizing themselves at the group-level and exercising clout.”

    These new neighborhood white people do organize …

    … to stamp out “racism” and raise public school bond issues on themselves.

    So the theory happens, but the reality is … underwhelming.

    I think white people have deeper problems.

    I kinda preferred the old neighborhood. I think my family member did too.

    It usually takes an American to notice those subtleties. Even not-so-subtleties. You and I know what a chain link front yard fence means. A foreigner won't necessarily understand the difference between that and a picket fence. Or the intricacies of American church nomenclature.

    As it happens, I was talking to an Israeli friend about Tom Wolfe's Back to Blood. She read it and liked it. She's a smart person. But she missed the point on just about everything! Right from the start, where she didn't pick up on the fact that Edward T. Topping IV is an über-WASP. (She thought he was just "some American guy" and gave it no further thought.) She didn't know anything about Miami's demographics. Didn't know about the one-drop rule.

    Come to think of it, she could have learned all those things from the book itself if she'd just read it more carefully. But you know the way Tom Wolfe's books are so lavishly detailed, you can have a good time focusing on a set of issues quite disjoint from what happens to strike another person.

    Not just foreigners.

    Since moving from the city to a village, I’ve seen a lot of chain link, and at first it horrified me. It’s around businesses and ballfields rather than residences, which don’t need fences. It doesn’t have the same connotations it does in the city.

    But it’s still ugly and cheap. I understand the practical need for fences, yet they need not be eyesores. Look at New Orleans’s wrought iron.

    (Interestingly, a suburb forced friends of mine to erect a fence after their Lab bit a jogger. The only economical choice was chain link. What that did to their and the neighbors’ property values is arguable, but they eventually sent the dog back to the farm.)

    Saint Paul is a thicket of Little Free Libraries, being only a short drive from the movement’s birthplace in Hudson, Wisc. Yet you almost never see them on streets with chain-linked yards.

    A lot of older Philly row houses have open front porches. In certain high crime neighborhoods (more Latino than black) it's become the norm to cage in your front porch with iron bars - the look ranges from somewhat ornamental to jail cell.

    I think it's not just because of burglary but because securing your home from home invasion is pretty normal in Latin America. It must have jarred Latino immigrants to realize that in America pretty much anyone with a tire iron could just walk right into your house.

    But unless you know this, you drive down the street in Philly and you reach a certain neighborhood and you suddenly see all these caged in front porches and you wonder what the hell is going on.

    Blacks have a tendency to hypertension, so those taking medicine for that condition will quite possibly be hard hit. Florida and Louisiana will be worst because it travels and stays viable in the air best in moist and humid conditions

    It is a respiratory virus. A cough is the major symptom, so a cough is how it spreads. A cough sends viral particles eight metres, equivalent to a flame thrower, but unlike a flamethrower it hangs in the air where you can walk though it.


    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8162697/Social-distancing-EIGHT-metres-avoid-coronavirus-risk.html
    'Given the turbulent puff cloud dynamic model, recommendations for separations of three feet to six feet (one metre to two metres) may underestimate the distance, timescale, and persistence over which the cloud and its pathogenic payload travel, thus generating an underappreciated potential exposure range for a healthcare worker.
     
    It is not clear how long the viral particles are viable though, probably not long at all being blown about in the external environment, because long lasting pathogens (TB measles) are much more lethal than COVID-19 is.

    Even for normal talking he is way too close; literally billions of virus particles in tiny droplets must be expelled when someone is talking, loud and emphatically. As a people blacks are loud. Bullhorn would be ideal. If you watch those cop shows sometimes they complain about spittle hitting them in the face when an agitated member of the public is trying to explain themselves.

    Florida and Louisiana will be worst because it travels and stays viable in the air best in moist and humid conditions

    I’ve also heard experts say the opposite. That the greater UV radiation from sunlight and greater humidity limit its spread and respiratory viruses in general.

    The virus is expelled via water droplets when you cough. If you cough underwater, your cough travels a lot smaller of a distance than it does when you cough on land into the air.

    Nurses are mostly women. Much like teachers, there will be a tendency to carry on about how heroic and hardworking they are while also complaining about low pay and poor working conditions. These are the people that like to go on social media saying, “I work in healthcare and…” They will not get the attention they crave if they say, “Everything is normal.

    Mandatory masks, and mandatory use of hand sanitizer at the entrance and stores would not be a big issue. They should do other stuff--bleaching down carts, bleaching down checkout surfaces, maybe something with UV. But some really simple steps can really wallop the crap out of transmission.

    But guess what. We weren't prepared for even those obvious simple steps--epic fail of our globalist super-state. And still aren't rallying to take those steps now.

    But arresting people who go to the beach ... that they can do.

    good point…Costco should also require all workers to wear masks and require all patrons to wear gloves before entering the store….Gloves are will help reduce the spread of this virus, they also discourage people from touching their faces, rubbing their eyes, etc…I was able to order two boxes of 100 gloves from Amazon last week, much easier to get gloves than hand sanitizer or masks.

    When my father drove me to Phillies games at Connie Mack Stadium circa 1970, we would see parked cars in various states of stripped-ness, up on blocks, sometimes entire engines missing. I don’t know what neighborhoods those were, but you probably do.

    When a little black boy would offer to “watch your car, mister?” Dad would definitely pay the kid. It was a form of extortion. In retrospect, I don’t know whey we didn’t just park in a garage or lot somewhere. Or maybe that was in a lot! That part of the memory is fuzzy.

    Connie Mack was at 21st and Lehigh, in North Philly, which is still in the ghetto today. The site of the stadium is occupied by a rather handsome and expensive looking black evangelical megachurch. There are lots of broken down storefront churches in the ghetto but this is nothing like that. This place seats 5,000 in first class comfort.

    Across the street there are still modest row houses. Some (not all) of them have wrought iron bar security doors instead of storm doors but even those don't have bars on the windows. This indicates a moderate crime neighborhood. A lot of the Philly ghettos are occupied by older black people as the population has aged in place ( the little black kid who offered to watch your car probably still lives on the block but now he's 60 and his mama is 85) and older people don't tend to mug each other much.

    The reason he didn't park in the parking lot was that there wasn't a parking lot. The stadium was built in a crowded row house neighborhood before the age of the automobile - you were supposed to arrive by trolley or on foot.

    It's not just a black people thing. I remember white kids getting paid to "look after your car" at soccer matches in Liverpool and Birmingham (UK) forty-five years back, when the Villa Park stadium surroundings were still white working class (by the late 70s blacks ran the streets, by the late 90s Muslims did).

    Well let's break it down, shall we?
    Mr. Walker made 4 points in his post:

    1. Jews are bulldozing Palestinian homes (I'm not sure)
    2. Palestinians have lived there for centuries (yes they have)
    3. Palestinian land is given by Israel to Jews (isn't that what the settlements are?)
    4. Israel is a country to which we've given billions in aid (yes we have)

    So 3/4 of his points are demonstrably true. One is in contention. However, Israeli bulldozers do get into trouble now and then (memba Rachel Corrie? yeah, I memba!) so I'll give him a half-true there.

    Then you throw Assad, the Taliban, Boku (sic) Haram, and Mexican cartels into the mix. Here's the thing: None of them tell Whites that they are literally Hitler for wanting their own country. Only "da JOOS" do that.

    Now, here's another thing: I don't give a whistling Scheisse about what Israel or "da JOOS" do to the Palestinians. I wish I had a country that cared about Whites the way Israel does its people. I wish that I could enlist or commission in a military as based as the IDF. I would gladly bulldoze my way across North America while wearing a uniform.

    Why don't you just own it?

    Happy Monday, Jack.

    Israel is a country to which we’ve given billions in aid (yes we have)

    As you admit, Israel has largely stop bulldozing homes because Palestinians have largely stopped blowing themselves up at Jewish wedding banquets and other such places. Nowadays that happens more in London and Paris than in Tel Aviv. Don’t say they didn’t warn you.

    If you read Americans Abroad, Mark Twain’s biggest observation about the Holy Land is that it was empty and desolate. A lot of “Palestinians” came in from other parts of Syria (the Ottomans considered it to be part of Syria, something Assad has never forgotten) and Egypt when the Zionists began settling the place and creating an economy with jobs (just like not a lot of Mexicans lived in California until white people did the same for California). Arabs went back and forth freely between Ottoman lands and didn’t consider themselves to be especially “Palestinian”. Arafat, the great “Palestinian” leader, was born in Cairo in 1929, long before the Jews expelled any Arabs. If Israel were to disappear, “Palestine” would be snatched up by its Arab neighbors again in a jiffy. In the 20 years that Jordan occupied the West Bank and Egypt ran Gaza, zero thought was given to giving the “Palestinians” their own state.

    Israeli settlements are made either on land that was government owned or purchased from its Arab owners. If the situation was reversed, there wouldn’t be any Arab “settlements” in Israel – the whole place would be part of Dar al Islam and not a single Jew would remain alive.

    Koestler's 'Promise and Fulfillment' details the large increase in the Arab population of Palestine in the decades pre-1948, as they were drawn by employment opportunities, better healthcare ( much lower infant mortality rates in particular), and infrastructure improvements carried out by European Jewish settlers.

    You like to say that you and yours have been good for America. But if you had deliberately set out to ruin us, pray tell what might you have done differently?

    It's not exactly Beverly Hills but if you take a virtual drive down Florence in Google Maps, it looks like a lot of commercial strips in working class areas all over America - gas stations, auto parts stores, cell phone stores, liquor stores, Chinese take out. Yes, if you look closely there are little hints - the local mini-market has iron burglar bars on all the windows. The grim looking, repurposed from some other use "Love & Joy Bible Church" (are there churches that are not Bible Churches?) has more ironwork and could not be mistaken for Notre Dame. But overall it's not that different looking.

    Generally speaking in America, ghettos are repurposed. No one builds a brand new ghetto. They start out being populated by some other ethnic group and then at some point the white people flee and are replaced by blacks. So physically the building stock looks just like other neighborhoods where the white people have not yet fled. Sometimes if the neighborhoods were built at the same time or by the same developer, they can look virtually identical.

    “Love & Joy Bible Church” (are there churches that are not Bible Churches?)

    A number of denominations of Christianity don’t use the the Bible in their services. Episcopalians have the “Book of Common Prayer” and a Hymnal for example. All of it is derived from the Bible of course, but its not easy to find a Bible in the pews in a lot of churches. You’ll find one in the Minister’s office, and in the library, etc but not for normal services.

    I understand Roman Catholicism is the same but I could be mistaken.

    This article reminded me of a magazine interview of Joseph Wambaugh (it was Playboy magazine, I think, yeah I'm a sexist, knuckle dragging caveman). He said the LA Police liked blond beefy tall white guys from the mid-west - like Iowa. He likened the LA cops to an occupying army because they didn't have any emotional attachment to the place.

    One thing Wambaugh pointed out — the beefy Midwestern white guys were terrible as undercover cops, because they look like cops.

    A friend of mine in NYC told me an interesting story about his days in the Police Academy, back in the 70s or 80s. One of the recruits came in the first day with an Afro and looking like an extra from Superfly. He was immediately taken aside and given a spot as an undercover cop. The guy was given very special treatment at the Academy.

    But fortunately, a lot of criminals are surprisingly gullible. I've watched a good bit of footage of people being set up hiring what they thought was a hitman to kill someone. More often than not, the undercover officer is a white guy in his 40s or 50s who could be cop or a farmer or a trucker but definitely not a killer for hire. Maybe the criminal is thinking, "He looks so much like a cop, he couldn't possibly be one".

    As of March 29 in France, 2,606 people who tested positive for COVID-19 had died in hospitals alone. Perhaps even more worrisome, there were already 4,632 people in intensive-care units, up from approximately 1,500 one week earlier. Between the number of people who left intensive care because they had died and those who left because their condition had improved, it means that probably almost twice as many people have already required admission to intensive care since the beginning of the outbreak in France. By comparison, during the entire 2018–19 season, 490 people who had the flu died in hospitals, and 2,915 people required admission to intensive care. Not only are we already way past that with the COVID-19 pandemic, but, even in the most optimistic scenario that I consider plausible, those figures will be at least 15 times higher.

    When my father drove me to Phillies games at Connie Mack Stadium circa 1970, we would see parked cars in various states of stripped-ness, up on blocks, sometimes entire engines missing. I don't know what neighborhoods those were, but you probably do.

    When a little black boy would offer to "watch your car, mister?" Dad would definitely pay the kid. It was a form of extortion. In retrospect, I don't know whey we didn't just park in a garage or lot somewhere. Or maybe that was in a lot! That part of the memory is fuzzy.

    Here in exurban Connecticut bliss, my father-in-law from Gypsy Land, Romania always marvels on visits at how I leave things like gas grills and chairs outside behind the house. Anybody could come and take them! (if they could get past my dog) but nobody does. He can't get his head around that.

    Connie Mack was at 21st and Lehigh, in North Philly, which is still in the ghetto today. The site of the stadium is occupied by a rather handsome and expensive looking black evangelical megachurch. There are lots of broken down storefront churches in the ghetto but this is nothing like that. This place seats 5,000 in first class comfort.

    Across the street there are still modest row houses. Some (not all) of them have wrought iron bar security doors instead of storm doors but even those don’t have bars on the windows. This indicates a moderate crime neighborhood. A lot of the Philly ghettos are occupied by older black people as the population has aged in place ( the little black kid who offered to watch your car probably still lives on the block but now he’s 60 and his mama is 85) and older people don’t tend to mug each other much.

    The reason he didn’t park in the parking lot was that there wasn’t a parking lot. The stadium was built in a crowded row house neighborhood before the age of the automobile – you were supposed to arrive by trolley or on foot.

    I saw what you did there. Neat trick. He didn't say billions he said HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS and you know that to be false so you chopped off two orders of magnitude in order to make the statement true.

    As you admit, Israel has largely stop bulldozing homes because Palestinians have largely stopped blowing themselves up at Jewish wedding banquets and other such places. Nowadays that happens more in London and Paris than in Tel Aviv. Don't say they didn't warn you.

    If you read Americans Abroad, Mark Twain's biggest observation about the Holy Land is that it was empty and desolate. A lot of "Palestinians" came in from other parts of Syria (the Ottomans considered it to be part of Syria, something Assad has never forgotten) and Egypt when the Zionists began settling the place and creating an economy with jobs (just like not a lot of Mexicans lived in California until white people did the same for California). Arabs went back and forth freely between Ottoman lands and didn't consider themselves to be especially "Palestinian". Arafat, the great "Palestinian" leader, was born in Cairo in 1929, long before the Jews expelled any Arabs. If Israel were to disappear, "Palestine" would be snatched up by its Arab neighbors again in a jiffy. In the 20 years that Jordan occupied the West Bank and Egypt ran Gaza, zero thought was given to giving the "Palestinians" their own state.

    Israeli settlements are made either on land that was government owned or purchased from its Arab owners. If the situation was reversed, there wouldn't be any Arab "settlements" in Israel - the whole place would be part of Dar al Islam and not a single Jew would remain alive.

    A lot of “Palestinians” came in from other parts of Syria (the Ottomans considered it to be part of Syria, something Assad has never forgotten) and Egypt when the Zionists began settling the place and creating an economy with jobs (just like not a lot of Mexicans lived in California until white people did the same for California).

    I can't speak authoritatively to what goes on in a Bible Church (or maybe it should be Bible church). I've been to services at one but don't recall specifically what else might have been used.

    In more mainline Protestant denominations (eg Episcopal) there are readings from the Bible as part of the service, but the verses are usually printed onto that week's bulletins (so the participants can read along as its being read, or maybe they're hard of hearing and would prefer to read themselves or whatever) and are read by the Minister or a lay reader as part of the service. There's no need for a Church to have a hundred or so Bibles in the pews if a given service is only going to reference 4-5 verses.

    Black churches (as I believe the Bible Church you referenced was) tend to be led by somewhat charismatic preachers who will read directly from the Bible, then try to explain to the flock what the verse(s) mean. There's also a lot of singing.

    (The commercial streets are dumps, but L.A. blacks tend to do a decent job of keeping their single family houses and yards maintained.)
     
    When I gave a talk at USC a while back, I foolishly booked an apartment on a commercial street, though airbnb, without looking into the neighborhood in which I booked. If it's in walking distance of the University of Spoiled Children, it can't be that bad, right, white boy?

    But indeed, there was a striking difference between the residential side streets and the black folks that live on them (who looked like decent, self-respecting working class people), and the adjacent commercial street and the black folks that live on it (dangerous, degraded drug fiends). Liberalism is the worst thing that's happened to black Americans since slavery. If some tough black patriarch from one of those residential side streets had dictatorial authority to clean up that neighborhood, it wouldn't be half bad.

    You couldn’t be more correct about the ruinous effect liberalism has had upon the black population (as well as every other of course), but my overriding thought as I read you comment was this:

    Steve, Aren't you finally getting to the point where you recognize that black people in the US have a genuinely different and separate culture from the main culture? And black people like that separation, especially because they don't have to work conventionally, and still the largess rolls in.

    It is past time to recognize that some people like to live in ways very different than others, and let them live it, warts, Coronavirus® sgam, birthday parties and all. Let them tax themselves, hire cops and courts, make laws, and run medical clinics if they so chose. Or not. It is their business, not mine or yours.

    This Coronavirus® is a big scam, but the changes it is driving in society are not artificial or to be taken lightly. Black people may find that real separatism is possible in ways they could not imagine a few short weeks ago. IF things go on as they might, I do not think that there are going to be many (if any) police responses to ghetto service requests. Self policing, in other words. A great idea, I think, and long past time to try it out.

    I’ve advocated for years that the police take an extended coffee and donut break while tasked with patrolling Black neighborhoods.

    Blacks are too different from non-Blacks and the only realities that work are separate countries or Blacks are second-class, the way they were a century ago.

    3. Palestinian land is given by Israel to Jews (isn't that what the settlements are?)
    4. Israel is a country to which we've given billions in aid (yes we have)

    So 3/4 of his points are demonstrably true. One is in contention. However, Israeli bulldozers do get into trouble now and then (memba Rachel Corrie? yeah, I memba!) so I'll give him a half-true there.

    Then you throw Assad, the Taliban, Boku (sic) Haram, and Mexican cartels into the mix. Here's the thing: None of them tell Whites that they are literally Hitler for wanting their own country. Only "da JOOS" do that.

    Now, here's another thing: I don't give a whistling Scheisse about what Israel or "da JOOS" do to the Palestinians. I wish I had a country that cared about Whites the way Israel does its people. I wish that I could enlist or commission in a military as based as the IDF. I would gladly bulldoze my way across North America while wearing a uniform.

    Given their obesity, they obviously have enough food to eat. Not to mention free schooling and a reasonable degree of healthcare access (Medicaid).

    It's amazing the degree of attitude that those Blacks have. If we were a sane country (which we clearly are not), we'd send those Blacks to Appalachia, Idaho, or some desolate place in the U.S. Then we'd bring back all those mild Midwestern types that used to populate LA, back when LA was an American city.

    Sadly, this is just a dream.

    Meanwhile, in Israel, the Jews are bulldozing the homes of Palestinians (who've lived there for many centuries) and giving their land to Jewish families. Israel is a country that we've given hundreds of billions of dollars to in aid, not to mention many decades of unyielding support. You can't get elected to dog catcher in DC without praising Israel, but for some reason nobody ever seems to ever learn anything from them.... Funny how that works.....

    When a little black boy would offer to "watch your car, mister?" Dad would definitely pay the kid. It was a form of extortion. In retrospect, I don't know whey we didn't just park in a garage or lot somewhere. Or maybe that was in a lot! That part of the memory is fuzzy.

    Here in exurban Connecticut bliss, my father-in-law from Gypsy Land, Romania always marvels on visits at how I leave things like gas grills and chairs outside behind the house. Anybody could come and take them! (if they could get past my dog) but nobody does. He can't get his head around that.

    It’s not just a black people thing. I remember white kids getting paid to “look after your car” at soccer matches in Liverpool and Birmingham (UK) forty-five years back, when the Villa Park stadium surroundings were still white working class (by the late 70s blacks ran the streets, by the late 90s Muslims did).

    Milwaukee is about 1/3 black, 1/3 white and 1/3 Hispanic.

    There is one neighborhood famous for being a Polish neighborhood that is now Mexican.

    Some of the white areas are quite nice. My son lived downtown for a while, and I once spent some time doing contract work, and got a place a few blocks away.

    Areas like the Third Ward, or the areas around Milwaukee School of Engineering or UW Milwaukee are nice. Much of the lakefront area is nice. North of the Menominee River between the Milwaukee River and Lake Michigan is nice until you get too far north.

    Get out of that area and it can be quite dangerous. Several of my son’s friends were robbed at gunpoint.

    El, I onced questioned whether the young woman taking my blood pressure at a hospital was a nurse, as she was in a tee shirt and jeans. She was annoyed enough to mention what I said to a staff doctor. I told the doctor that when you dress like my car mechanic I get to question your credentials. Actually my mechanic wears matching blue pants and shirt with his name embroidered on it. Nurses looked so professional when they wore crisp whites, with white hose and shoes, but that was a long time ago.

    Not much can go wrong taking your blood pressure. Now if instead she came at you with a needle…
    I make phlebotomy/lobotomy jokes when I give blood. If the needle lady gets the joke, I feel a little more comfortable about her qualifications.

    “Love & Joy Bible Church” (are there churches that are not Bible Churches?)
     
    A number of denominations of Christianity don't use the the Bible in their services. Episcopalians have the "Book of Common Prayer" and a Hymnal for example. All of it is derived from the Bible of course, but its not easy to find a Bible in the pews in a lot of churches. You'll find one in the Minister's office, and in the library, etc but not for normal services.

    I understand Roman Catholicism is the same but I could be mistaken.

    Why do Christians venerate a book that is basically just a history of the jews? The New Testament I can understand, but not the Old. Seems to me somebody got conned.

    • Agree: Charon
    • Replies: @Neuday
    The New Testament is the fulfillment of the Old. The reasons for the more laws of the Old Testament was because the Hebrews were a stubborn, stiff-necked people. It was constantly a give-and-take between God and the Hebrews, who would make all manner of laws about behavior but little in the way of true humility and trust in God. God gets pretty ticked about the behavior of "His" people and considers wiping them out. But in the end, God sends his son down to offer a new salvation, and again, the Jews reject Him. So salvation was also offered to the Gentiles, the new chosen people, the new Israel.

    If you don't know the prophesies of the Old you can't really appreciate their fulfillment in the New, and it also helps to understand human nature and how not to behave toward God.

    There is an Orthodox Christian teaching that the Old Testament is a verbal icon showing the various states and movements of the individual soul.

    I saw what you did there. Neat trick. He didn't say billions he said HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS and you know that to be false so you chopped off two orders of magnitude in order to make the statement true.

    As you admit, Israel has largely stop bulldozing homes because Palestinians have largely stopped blowing themselves up at Jewish wedding banquets and other such places. Nowadays that happens more in London and Paris than in Tel Aviv. Don't say they didn't warn you.

    If you read Americans Abroad, Mark Twain's biggest observation about the Holy Land is that it was empty and desolate. A lot of "Palestinians" came in from other parts of Syria (the Ottomans considered it to be part of Syria, something Assad has never forgotten) and Egypt when the Zionists began settling the place and creating an economy with jobs (just like not a lot of Mexicans lived in California until white people did the same for California). Arabs went back and forth freely between Ottoman lands and didn't consider themselves to be especially "Palestinian". Arafat, the great "Palestinian" leader, was born in Cairo in 1929, long before the Jews expelled any Arabs. If Israel were to disappear, "Palestine" would be snatched up by its Arab neighbors again in a jiffy. In the 20 years that Jordan occupied the West Bank and Egypt ran Gaza, zero thought was given to giving the "Palestinians" their own state.

    Israeli settlements are made either on land that was government owned or purchased from its Arab owners. If the situation was reversed, there wouldn't be any Arab "settlements" in Israel - the whole place would be part of Dar al Islam and not a single Jew would remain alive.

    Koestler’s ‘Promise and Fulfillment’ details the large increase in the Arab population of Palestine in the decades pre-1948, as they were drawn by employment opportunities, better healthcare ( much lower infant mortality rates in particular), and infrastructure improvements carried out by European Jewish settlers.

    If you called an Arab a ‘Palestinian’ pre-1948 they would have tried to cut your throat. ‘Palestinians’ at that time referred to the Jews in what the Arabs would have called South Syria.

    But indeed, there was a striking difference between the residential side streets and the black folks that live on them (who looked like decent, self-respecting working class people), and the adjacent commercial street and the black folks that live on it (dangerous, degraded drug fiends). Liberalism is the worst thing that's happened to black Americans since slavery. If some tough black patriarch from one of those residential side streets had dictatorial authority to clean up that neighborhood, it wouldn't be half bad.

    You ever notice there are no wilding crowds of juveniles in Africa? They, and other forms of black recreational violence, are actually a product of “white supremacy” (the fact the nation is still, for the most part, run by whites); black authorities in black countries don’t have to kowtow to “antiracism”, and treat African brutality with commensurate brutality from the state or local community.

    NY is unusual in that it has such a large Jewish population that Jews fill all the ecological niches whereas in other places they tend to be concentrated more in business and the professions. I think as the city as a whole has gotten less white there are fewer blue collar Jews in NY (although the more recent wave of ex-Soviet Jews has taken up some of the slack) but there used to be Jewish cops, Jewish plumbers, Jewish painters, Jewish cab drivers (American born white cab drivers of any religion are now extinct in NYC, period), Jewish prison guards, Jewish you-name-its in NY.

    Necklacing is political terror. Mob violence is of a different nature than street crime. South African and other post-colonial African states tend to have a criminal underclass much like ours. Those that weren't colonized tend not to, so much.

    I'm not saying these places and their people aren't violent and cruel, but no one is putting up with wilding children--they're more likely to necklace them. If there's no state to exercise its monopoly on violence, there is a community to do it.

In the 20 years that Jordan occupied the West Bank and Egypt ran Gaza, zero thought was given to giving the "Palestinians" their own state.

    Israeli settlements are made either on land that was government owned or purchased from its Arab owners. If the situation was reversed, there wouldn't be any Arab "settlements" in Israel - the whole place would be part of Dar al Islam and not a single Jew would remain alive.

    I saw what you did there. Neat trick. He didn’t say billions he said HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS and you know that to be false so you chopped off two orders of magnitude in order to make the statement true.

    Wrong. The statement was true, but it’s wildly inadequate. Because it fails to account for this nation’s endless, ruinous wars for “the joos” which have so far cost several trillion and which (not incidentally) have wrecked what was left of our pretensions to morality on the world stage.

    this nation’s endless, ruinous wars for “the joos” which have so far cost several trillion and which (not incidentally) have wrecked what was left of our pretensions to morality on the world stage.
     
    Which wars do you contend that the US has fought solely because of the Jews?

    Does the Zionist lobby yield excessive and even undue influence over US policy and politics? Of that much, there would appear to be little doubt. Is said influence the sole driver of all aggressive and interventionist US foreign policy? To suggest that, wouldn't one have to ignore any number of other powerful interests that push for and benefit from war?

    In addition to all those with obvious financial interests in war, I am hardly the first to note that there are clearly more than a few Americans who cheer-on belligerence and war from what would appear to be more psychologically-based motivations.

    Is the military-industrial complex that Dwight Eisenhower warned us about nothing more than a creation of Zionism or Jews? Was there a Zionist or Jewish lobby in the US when George Washington warned against foreign entanglements? When John Qunicy Adams did so?

    It is critical to note here, as well, that:
    - Neither are all Jews Zionists nor all Zionists Jews (Christian Zionism actually predates the Jewish variety.)
    - Polls have shown that support for Israel is actually higher among Evangelical Christians in the US than among Jews
    - Many Jews have been and are vocally anti-war

    For the Record, my commenting history attests that I am both emphatically not Zionist, as well as emphatically opposed to both Invade the World and Invite the World policies. (And emphatically opposed to anti-White hostility.)

    There are definitely similarities between the London wwc accent and Aussie. I've noticed confusion generally where non-Brit, non-Aussie people confuse Brits and Australians. Lots of Australian slang is British in origin. Of course there has been flow in the other direction too.

    Even confused me once. Twenty odd years ago I rang an office in London and the female receptionist I spoke to had such a strong east end accent I thought initially she was an Aussie. (That accent is at the point of disappearing altogether thanks to race replacement). Despite the fact I was born in London, that cockney accent sounded very different to mine

    One thing Wambaugh pointed out — the beefy Midwestern white guys were terrible as undercover cops, because they look like cops.

    A friend of mine in NYC told me an interesting story about his days in the Police Academy, back in the 70s or 80s. One of the recruits came in the first day with an Afro and looking like an extra from Superfly. He was immediately taken aside and given a spot as an undercover cop. The guy was given very special treatment at the Academy.

    One thing Wambaugh pointed out — the beefy Midwestern white guys were terrible as undercover cops, because they look like cops.

    But fortunately, a lot of criminals are surprisingly gullible. I’ve watched a good bit of footage of people being set up hiring what they thought was a hitman to kill someone. More often than not, the undercover officer is a white guy in his 40s or 50s who could be cop or a farmer or a trucker but definitely not a killer for hire. Maybe the criminal is thinking, “He looks so much like a cop, he couldn’t possibly be one”.

    Most people who are gullible enough to hire an undercover cop as a hitman are (1) not the sharpest knives in the drawer to begin with and (2) don't really know how to go about hiring one and don't really know what a hitman is supposed to look like because they have never hired a hitman before.

    And how SHOULD a hitman look? Hitmen don't always fit some Hollywood stereotype. Frank "the Irishman" Sheeran (allegedly a Mafia hitman although a lot of the Philly mob guys deny this and say that the only thing that Frank ever hit was a jug of cheap red wine) looked a lot like a stereotypical Irish cop. William Bulger was president of the Massachusetts State Senate and his brother, Whitey Bulger was one of the FBI's most wanted. Physically they didn't look that different from each other.

    Yeah, most of the cops and firemen I knew in NYC were Roman Catholic. I knew a Hispanic cop, so I assume he was Catholic.

    The Jewish cop bit reminds me of what I read about the great historian Fritz Stern (who was a college buddy of my father). The Stern family fled Nazi Germany in the 1930s. Young Fritz was making a bit of trouble with some friends in his new home in NYC, when a cop walked up. Scared the daylights out of young Fritz, who was used to Nazi cops. The cop spoke to young Fritz in Yiddish.

    NY is unusual in that it has such a large Jewish population that Jews fill all the ecological niches whereas in other places they tend to be concentrated more in business and the professions. I think as the city as a whole has gotten less white there are fewer blue collar Jews in NY (although the more recent wave of ex-Soviet Jews has taken up some of the slack) but there used to be Jewish cops, Jewish plumbers, Jewish painters, Jewish cab drivers (American born white cab drivers of any religion are now extinct in NYC, period), Jewish prison guards, Jewish you-name-its in NY.

    Why do Christians venerate a book that is basically just a history of the jews? The New Testament I can understand, but not the Old. Seems to me somebody got conned.

    The New Testament is the fulfillment of the Old. The reasons for the more laws of the Old Testament was because the Hebrews were a stubborn, stiff-necked people. It was constantly a give-and-take between God and the Hebrews, who would make all manner of laws about behavior but little in the way of true humility and trust in God. God gets pretty ticked about the behavior of “His” people and considers wiping them out. But in the end, God sends his son down to offer a new salvation, and again, the Jews reject Him. So salvation was also offered to the Gentiles, the new chosen people, the new Israel.

    If you don’t know the prophesies of the Old you can’t really appreciate their fulfillment in the New, and it also helps to understand human nature and how not to behave toward God.

    South African crime is often characterized by extreme sadism and crowds of spectators: the whole point of a necklacing is to destroy someone's memory in front of a hooting crowd like a medieval governmental punishment. Many (all of the cases I've read about) of the farm murders are by groups.

    Necklacing is political terror. Mob violence is of a different nature than street crime. South African and other post-colonial African states tend to have a criminal underclass much like ours. Those that weren’t colonized tend not to, so much.

    I’m not saying these places and their people aren’t violent and cruel, but no one is putting up with wilding children–they’re more likely to necklace them. If there’s no state to exercise its monopoly on violence, there is a community to do it.

    As of March 29 in France, 2,606 people who tested positive for COVID-19 had died in hospitals alone. Perhaps even more worrisome, there were already 4,632 people in intensive-care units, up from approximately 1,500 one week earlier. Between the number of people who left intensive care because they had died and those who left because their condition had improved, it means that probably almost twice as many people have already required admission to intensive care since the beginning of the outbreak in France. By comparison, during the entire 2018–19 season, 490 people who had the flu died in hospitals, and 2,915 people required admission to intensive care. Not only are we already way past that with the COVID-19 pandemic, but, even in the most optimistic scenario that I consider plausible, those figures will be at least 15 times higher.

    A tangent on the "personal protective equipment" and the "are we really taking this seriously?".

    Something i think my mom pointed out a few years ago that seems strange is that in the US doctors and nurses, even in hospitals, wear their work clothes to / from work.

    It also came up in a few of the testimonial threads from doctors that have been linked over the past several days and i also heard it in some radio stories: doctors and nurses working in ER / critical care worry about how they're going to decontaminate when getting home. e.g. one mentioned he takes his scrubs off in the garage and jumps into the shower.

    Where i live it's common to see nurses in scrubs in stores etc. in the evenings.

    So, especially in this infectious period, wouldn't it make sense to set up a system where people change out of street clothes into work clothes and shoes at work and then back again before they leave. And maybe even shower at work too before they leave?
    I'm not saying this as something that should be imposed on people, but i assume they'd actually feel better / safer doing that. Like the gym ( ... if it's a nicer gym). What am i missing?

    The ICU I worked in used to provide hospital-laundered scrubs and had a locker room for changing. It was very luxurious, so of course ended. Thr hospital could save money by stopping the laundry service and purchase of scrubs.

    I've wondered that too. My neighbor is a thoracic surgery nurse. Often in the morning she comes by walking her dog in her scrubs, bends down and picks up after the filthy little creature, then goes off to work and assists on open chest surgeries all day. Is putting a gown on over compromised clothes really a failsafe? It does seem as if there could be a better system involving showering at the hospital at the beginning and end of the shift and donning fresh, uncompromised clothing.

    So i read up on this a bit and it looks like going into an operating room everybody changes into hospital provided scrubs.

    In Labor and Delivery areas they also do the same at least in some hospitals.

    However, for other areas of hospitals people just wear their street clothes.

    Apparently this aspect of US custom has been under discussion for a while but the experts consider it a non-issue on a hand wavy sort of dismissal. e.g
    https://www.wgbh.org/news/local-news/2019/01/29/is-it-an-issue-that-hospital-workers-wear-scrubs-outside

    OTOH this small study found that 7 out the 10 nurses tested had MRSA on their scrubs after a 12 hour shift even though they wore gowns on top while caring for some “isolation” patients.
    (they also had various other bacteria they tested for)

    She probably changes at work into disinfected scrubs provided by the OR. Also, if she is in the OR, she is likely wearing sterile gowns over any other clothes. Rest assured, no hospital is ignoring some ongoing source of surgical infections, which are a major financial loss as insurance companies make hospitals eat the costs of avoidable complications.

    Why did the Londoners have Aussie accents?

    “Oi mate” is typical British slang, especially so of Cockneys. For some reason a lot of American seem to associate British slang as Australian, which is similar because it comes from British slang unsurprisingly.

    I assume this is because Americans associate a “British accent” with the largely slang-free “Queen’s English” spoken by people like Hugh Grant or on shows like Downton Abbey, so when they hear more relaxed British English with a lot of slang terms they assume it is Australian.

    Agree. Just as most non-urbane Americans don't have very good Gayday or Jewdar, most also can't distinguish different classes of British accent, neither hi/lo nor north/south nor city/rustic nor Oxbridge/prole.

    So yeah, on hearing Cockney or rustic they probably mistaken conclude "Australian" a lot.

    One American place I worked employed a lower class Limey lady whose lower-Estuary accent set my teeth on edge, but my less discriminating coworkers thought her exotic talk was "charming". "Talk some more! Talk some more!" they would cheerily encourage her.

    Indeed, it's a common sight everywhere. And even if they wash their clothes and their hair, do they wash the inside of the car they drove home in wearing those clothes?

    Infection control in hospitals is probably like a lot of things in contemporary America - mostly for show.

    For many nurses and hospital staff, their workplaces are probably not significantly dirtier than their communities. Seriously ill and infectious patients are going to be concentrated in some places like ICUs or specialized units. Also some places like ERs are dirty by their nature. But, eg, an oncology unit or OR should be relatively clean.

    Most people are not aware how “dirty” everyday life is. Bacteria, viruses, fungi are everywhere.

    The New Testament is the fulfillment of the Old. The reasons for the more laws of the Old Testament was because the Hebrews were a stubborn, stiff-necked people. It was constantly a give-and-take between God and the Hebrews, who would make all manner of laws about behavior but little in the way of true humility and trust in God. God gets pretty ticked about the behavior of "His" people and considers wiping them out. But in the end, God sends his son down to offer a new salvation, and again, the Jews reject Him. So salvation was also offered to the Gentiles, the new chosen people, the new Israel.

    If you don't know the prophesies of the Old you can't really appreciate their fulfillment in the New, and it also helps to understand human nature and how not to behave toward God.

    As of March 29 in France, 2,606 people who tested positive for COVID-19 had died in hospitals alone. Perhaps even more worrisome, there were already 4,632 people in intensive-care units, up from approximately 1,500 one week earlier. Between the number of people who left intensive care because they had died and those who left because their condition had improved, it means that probably almost twice as many people have already required admission to intensive care since the beginning of the outbreak in France. By comparison, during the entire 2018–19 season, 490 people who had the flu died in hospitals, and 2,915 people required admission to intensive care. Not only are we already way past that with the COVID-19 pandemic, but, even in the most optimistic scenario that I consider plausible, those figures will be at least 15 times higher.

    “Just went to 2 hospitals in LA to check out these “War Zones” the MSM keeps telling us about.🏥They are very quiet & EMPTY.”

    And why wouldn’t they be? All non-essential surgeries (even some that are quite possibly life-saving) are being postponed. Appointments are being canceled or rescheduled. No one is denying that.

    Meanwhile, over in the obstetrics wing, things are probably pretty normal, or within the usual daily/seasonal ranges. After all, babies don’t check to see what it’s like outside before deciding to pop out.

    But even if almost the entirety of the hospital is empty, it can still be a “war zone” over in the cardio-pulmonary wing or wherever they keep all the ventilators. Did you really need someone like me to spell out something that obvious?

    I don’t mind people saying this thing may be overblown. It’s important to hear the opposing side, and when they run the final numbers, that may well be the consensus verdict. But why do people who think this is nothing have to come up with such idiotic arguments (e.g. “let’s wait until there are millions of dead in the streets before doing anything”)? How exactly is that helping to make their case? If anything, it’s dumb arguments like this that are going to make people buy even more into the opposing side.

    A Nurse Shared A Harrowing Photo Of COVID-19 Victims To Show How Horrifying The Outbreak Is

    https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/miriamelder/coronavirus-new-york-city-hospital-nurse-covid-19-deaths

    My favorite line is at the very end, from the nurse who allegedly took the pictures:

    “Maybe as a Jew i relate it to all of the Holocaust footage because that’s my only point of reference for such an image of humans,” he said. “[N]ever seen something quite like it.”
     
    Now (((they're))) just laughing at us.

    “Maybe as a Jew i relate it to all of the Holocaust footage because that’s my only point of reference for such an image of humans,” he said. “[N]ever seen something quite like it.”

    Now (((they’re))) just laughing at us.

    eh. people are innumerate. Though of course if a gentile uttered that sentence they’d be castigated for trivializing the Holocaust.

    But, the nurse definitely gives of a traumatized vibe:

    “I never had the patience to sit with somebody I’d just met until they took their last breath. But I really liked this lady’s cardigan and pajamas so I decided to stay and get to know her a little,” he said over text message. “Her hair was elegantly done with a sharp, meticulous clip and casually pulled up with a bandana that matched her house clothes. Perhaps if she’d covered her face with it instead, she wouldn’t have ended up here in the first place. But she didn’t die alone.”

    He’s either traumatized or a psycho.

    Considering that I’m feeling some anxiety and anger with just the media and shutdown,
    I can certainly see it could be quite rough for someone actually being hands on with the people who are dying on TOP of the media and political stuff.

    It's not exactly Beverly Hills but if you take a virtual drive down Florence in Google Maps, it looks like a lot of commercial strips in working class areas all over America - gas stations, auto parts stores, cell phone stores, liquor stores, Chinese take out.

But overall it's not that different looking.

    Generally speaking in America, ghettos are repurposed. No one builds a brand new ghetto. They start out being populated by some other ethnic group and then at some point the white people flee and are replaced by blacks. So physically the building stock looks just like other neighborhoods where the white people have not yet fled. Sometimes if the neighborhoods were built at the same time or by the same developer, they can look virtually identical.

    You’re right about repurposed ghettos. I stumbled upon the city of Dolton, IL never heard of it before. It’s a South Chicago suburb that is now 90%+ black, with what you’d expect with these kinds of demographics, high crime, poor schools and high taxes.

    Headline: New Jersey cops are forced to break up ANOTHER wedding in a Jewish community as residents continue to ignore social distancing rules

    William Katzenstein, 39, was issued a summons after around 40 guests gathered to celebrate nuptials despite Governor Phil Murphy explicitly banning people getting together for any type of social event including weddings or celebrations

    The wedding was broken up and the guests were asked to leave.

    Katzenstein will have to appear in court on a future date.

    It is the third wedding in the same community in recent weeks to have been broken up by police after breaching new laws on social distancing.

    The recent sightings of public gatherings have already exacerbated long-running tensions in Lakewood, where a large Orthodox Jewish population has relocated in recent years.

    As wedding halls were ordered to shut down, residents simply moved the ceremonies to backyards on their residential properties.”

    Why do they act like that?

    Any group of humans acts like their ancestors did. They do what has worked historically. Europeans still have the basic social institutions of their distant Central Asian ancestors, and the social institutions of the Greeks and Romans. (The present disorganization is from an attempted rejection of these institutions, IMHO from the shock of the world wars 1914-1946 or so, which came very near to ending civilization, see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_nuclear_close_calls) Why? Well, the European descended can't do anything else (Even the idea of putting women in charge of the society to end the threat of war is Greek -- see the play Lysistrata, Aristophanes.).

    Same with the African descended: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bantu_expansion . Go to a large city and see directly how the Bantu expansion worked. In essence, it makes the area unlivable for anybody except Bantu Expansion, essentially by treating them as prey animals. The inter-group casualties are simply a byproduct of this treatment -- everybody is treated as prey animals.

    Han Chinese do much the same, except that they add an intensive resource exploitation that makes it difficult or impossible for non-Han to live with Han. Even Jewish attempts to establish a colony in China failed.

    As for the modern synthesis of industrial society -- well, that seems to be impossible for any group whatsoever to live in. Note that the only groups that thrive in industrial societies are groups that distance themselves from it (Hasidim, Mennonites, Gypsies, Latin Americans, etc.). Those who try to participate (Reform Jews, many European groups, Han Chinese, some remnants of the old Anglo Saxons) develop below replacement fertility and will, eventually, quietly vanish. Which will be a problem for the groups distant from industrial society, but after a bit of adjustment they will continue to exist as they have "always" existed, and as similar groups now exist in Africa. Sort of like the bad boxer who had just been knocked out by the reigning champion at the start of the second round: "I really had him worried in the second round. He thought he'd killed me." The groups that have distanced themselves are like the reining champion - worried for a while, but victorious.

    And that's the current state of the chess board. Your move.

    Steve, Aren't you finally getting to the point where you recognize that black people in the US have a genuinely different and separate culture from the main culture? And black people like that separation, especially because they don't have to work conventionally, and still the largess rolls in.

    It is past time to recognize that some people like to live in ways very different than others, and let them live it, warts, Coronavirus® sgam, birthday parties and all. Let them tax themselves, hire cops and courts, make laws, and run medical clinics if they so chose. Or not. It is their business, not mine or yours.

    This Coronavirus® is a big scam, but the changes it is driving in society are not artificial or to be taken lightly. Black people may find that real separatism is possible in ways they could not imagine a few short weeks ago. IF things go on as they might, I do not think that there are going to be many (if any) police responses to ghetto service requests. Self policing, in other words. A great idea, I think, and long past time to try it out.

    Some sort of separation will be required if the US is going to survive (as unlikely as that is).

    As you say, all of those cops should be wearing masks and face shields. Why aren't they?

    Which is more irresponsible, some randoms having a party or the government enforcers who drive all over and interact with tens or hundreds of people a day having no qualms about about spreading the supposed plague?

    The cops each interact with various people in the community. Then they get together and interact with each-other, then go out to the community some more. You'd think they'd take some precautions.

    Setting aside the whole "is this even America ?!" thing, if they put on some surgical masks and medical type gloves (which they all carry anyway afaik), it would reinforce the signal that this IS a health issue rather than "go home because i'm a cop and i said so".

    “it would reinforce the signal that this IS a health issue rather than “go home because i’m a cop and i said so.”

    A tangent on the "personal protective equipment" and the "are we really taking this seriously?".

    Something i think my mom pointed out a few years ago that seems strange is that in the US doctors and nurses, even in hospitals, wear their work clothes to / from work.

    It also came up in a few of the testimonial threads from doctors that have been linked over the past several days and i also heard it in some radio stories: doctors and nurses working in ER / critical care worry about how they're going to decontaminate when getting home. e.g. one mentioned he takes his scrubs off in the garage and jumps into the shower.

    Where i live it's common to see nurses in scrubs in stores etc. in the evenings.

    So, especially in this infectious period, wouldn't it make sense to set up a system where people change out of street clothes into work clothes and shoes at work and then back again before they leave. And maybe even shower at work too before they leave?
    I'm not saying this as something that should be imposed on people, but i assume they'd actually feel better / safer doing that. Like the gym ( ... if it's a nicer gym). What am i missing?

    I would like to be able to go to work and change into hospital scrubs and then change out after the day is over. The only place that has a locker room for changing is located in the OR suite. different floor in a different building, behind a series of locked doors. And, at least in my hospital, the norm is for a color code of scrubs for RN, RT, Xray, and various other health care professionals.

    Yeah, most of the cops and firemen I knew in NYC were Roman Catholic. I knew a Hispanic cop, so I assume he was Catholic.

    The Jewish cop bit reminds me of what I read about the great historian Fritz Stern (who was a college buddy of my father). The Stern family fled Nazi Germany in the 1930s. Young Fritz was making a bit of trouble with some friends in his new home in NYC, when a cop walked up. Scared the daylights out of young Fritz, who was used to Nazi cops. The cop spoke to young Fritz in Yiddish.

    Wrong. The statement was true, but it's wildly inadequate. Because it fails to account for this nation's endless, ruinous wars for "the joos" which have so far cost several trillion and which (not incidentally) have wrecked what was left of our pretensions to morality on the world stage.

    You like to say that you and yours have been good for America. But if you had deliberately set out to ruin us, pray tell what might you have done differently?

    this nation’s endless, ruinous wars for “the joos” which have so far cost several trillion and which (not incidentally) have wrecked what was left of our pretensions to morality on the world stage.

    Which wars do you contend that the US has fought solely because of the Jews?

    Does the Zionist lobby yield excessive and even undue influence over US policy and politics? Of that much, there would appear to be little doubt. Is said influence the sole driver of all aggressive and interventionist US foreign policy? To suggest that, wouldn’t one have to ignore any number of other powerful interests that push for and benefit from war?

    [MORE]

    In addition to all those with obvious financial interests in war, I am hardly the first to note that there are clearly more than a few Americans who cheer-on belligerence and war from what would appear to be more psychologically-based motivations.

    Is the military-industrial complex that Dwight Eisenhower warned us about nothing more than a creation of Zionism or Jews? Was there a Zionist or Jewish lobby in the US when George Washington warned against foreign entanglements? When John Qunicy Adams did so?

    It is critical to note here, as well, that:
    – Neither are all Jews Zionists nor all Zionists Jews (Christian Zionism actually predates the Jewish variety.)
    – Polls have shown that support for Israel is actually higher among Evangelical Christians in the US than among Jews
    – Many Jews have been and are vocally anti-war

    For the Record, my commenting history attests that I am both emphatically not Zionist, as well as emphatically opposed to both Invade the World and Invite the World policies. (And emphatically opposed to anti-White hostility.)

    "Just went to 2 hospitals in LA to check out these “War Zones” the MSM keeps telling us about.🏥They are very quiet & EMPTY."

    And why wouldn't they be? All non-essential surgeries (even some that are quite possibly life-saving) are being postponed. Appointments are being canceled or rescheduled. No one is denying that.

    Meanwhile, over in the obstetrics wing, things are probably pretty normal, or within the usual daily/seasonal ranges. After all, babies don't check to see what it's like outside before deciding to pop out.

    But even if almost the entirety of the hospital is empty, it can still be a "war zone" over in the cardio-pulmonary wing or wherever they keep all the ventilators. Did you really need someone like me to spell out something that obvious?

    I don't mind people saying this thing may be overblown. It's important to hear the opposing side, and when they run the final numbers, that may well be the consensus verdict. But why do people who think this is nothing have to come up with such idiotic arguments (e.g. "let's wait until there are millions of dead in the streets before doing anything")? How exactly is that helping to make their case? If anything, it's dumb arguments like this that are going to make people buy even more into the opposing side.

    There is also the “tidal wave effect”: the water level drops on a beach as a tidal wave crests, since it is pulling so much water back into itself. Why they are called “tidal waves”.

    In this case people know that the place you are most likely to get sick is the hospital so they are avoiding it. Rightly. But could be the ERs will get clobbered both by “deferred maintenance” and possibly a pandemic.

    Still we need to unfreeze everything. Another month in quarantine so some ninety year olds can cling to their benefits a little longer? This is obscene. Life has a natural course.

    But fortunately, a lot of criminals are surprisingly gullible. I've watched a good bit of footage of people being set up hiring what they thought was a hitman to kill someone. More often than not, the undercover officer is a white guy in his 40s or 50s who could be cop or a farmer or a trucker but definitely not a killer for hire. Maybe the criminal is thinking, "He looks so much like a cop, he couldn't possibly be one".

In every Parish I’ve lived in, there were Catholic Bible reading groups, and many of the seriously religious Catholics I’ve known over the years were always reading it. I’m not sure where the idea came from that RCs don’t read it, maybe from the days when many didn’t know how to read?

I think as the city as a whole has gotten less white there are fewer blue collar Jews in NY (although the more recent wave of ex-Soviet Jews has taken up some of the slack) but there used to be Jewish cops, Jewish plumbers, Jewish painters, Jewish cab drivers (American born white cab drivers of any religion are now extinct in NYC, period), Jewish prison guards, Jewish you-name-its in NY.

    Some of the parishes even had a Jewish priest.

    You laugh, but a friend of mine who lived on the Upper West Side attended services at an Episcopal church in Greenwich Village. The rector, according to my friend, was "a Jewish Lesbian."

    I assume he meant formerly Jewish, but currently Lesbian.

    The Catholic Church compiled what is today called the Bible. The Church incorporated the Pentateuch into the Old Testament. Is that controversial?

    Wrong button. Agree.

    Don't worry, Buzzfeed News has a nice scare story up:

    A Nurse Shared A Harrowing Photo Of COVID-19 Victims To Show How Horrifying The Outbreak Is

    https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/miriamelder/coronavirus-new-york-city-hospital-nurse-covid-19-deaths

    My favorite line is at the very end, from the nurse who allegedly took the pictures:

    “Maybe as a Jew i relate it to all of the Holocaust footage because that’s my only point of reference for such an image of humans,” he said. “[N]ever seen something quite like it.”
     
    Now (((they're))) just laughing at us.

    Maybe as a Jew i relate it to all of the Holocaust footage because that’s my only point of reference

    Footage? They filmed the holocaust?

    That was marginally accurate a few generations ago.

    Blacks to Appalachia, Idaho, or some desolate place in the U.S.
     
    New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, and Minnesota are the best places to ship them. The do gooder Yankees stirred up this mess, let them live with the consequences.

    Agree.
