Use of word Negro on 2010 census forms raises memories of Jim Crow

The census form for 2010 features a word more often heard in 1966: Negro.

For many New York blacks, the word conjures visions of Jim Crow and segregation – even if the Census Bureau says it’s included to ensure an accurate count of the nation’s minority residents.

“It’s a bad vibe word,” said Kevin Bishop, 45, a Brooklyn salesman. “It doesn’t agree with me, doesn’t agree with my heart.”

Pamela Reese Smith, visiting the city yesterday from Rochester, said the term was outdated.

“I don’t think my ancestors would appreciate it in 2010,” said Smith, 56. “I don’t want my grandchildren being called Negroes.”

Here’s a REAL serious question: When are the ‘powers that be’ going to STOP dividing us? When are we going to stop letting them divide us??  The question should be – “Are you a legal resident of the United States?“, not what color is your skin.

BTW, I’m not ‘white’ either!  I’m kind of a pinkish/beige.  I don’t see that listed up there.  Nor is there ‘redneck’, ‘cracker’, or even ‘Caucasian’.  A large chunk of my ancestry were here waiting when the first colonists stepped off the boats.  The others came later, from Ireland and France.  Is there a category for all that?  Am I a ‘hyphen’?  NO!  I’m an American, just like those legal folks of a variety of skin tones.  Now, as far as I’m concerned the whole shebang needs to be dropped, from applications of any sort and all future census.

Failure of Leadership

The System is Failing
The Foundry

This past weekend the American public learned that not only was the Obama administration briefed about the bombing technique attempted on Flight 253, not only did the United States have information that a Nigerian was being prepared for a terrorist attack by al Qaeda in Yemen, but our government also knew that an “Umar Farouk” was involved.

Following these revelations, the Obama administration again took to the Sunday shows to defend their national security record. Last week Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano tried to convince Americans that “the system worked”. She failed. This Sunday, Deputy National Security Adviser for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism John Brennan did admit that the system failed on Christmas Day but still insisted: “Every other day the system has worked this year….The system is working.”

But It’s Not “Terror” Related

Man threatening Jews taken off flight

An airline passenger in Miami proclaimed “I want to kill all the Jews” before police forced him off a Detroit-bound plane, authorities said Thursday.

All the crazies headed to Detroit?

Mansor Mohammad Asad, 43, of Ohio, was arrested Wednesday night, according to a police department statement. Asad was charged with threats against a public servant, disorderly conduct and resisting an officer without violence.

Sounds like he threatened more than just a ‘public servant’.

FBI spokeswoman Judy Orihuela said there were no indications the disturbance was related to terrorism. The bureau was initially brought in to look into the incident but is no longer involved in the investigation. She said the FBI is treating the disruption as a matter for local authorities.

Well, yes, treat threats against an entire people as a local crime. If a Jew had stood up and shouted, “I want to kill all the Muslims”, that would be a whole ‘nuther ball of wax, wouldn’t it.

The disturbance forced a taxiing Northwest Airlines flight to turn around at Miami International Airport, according to a news release. Witnesses told investigators who boarded the plane that Asad was loud, disruptive and claimed to be Palestinian.

Northwest Airlines: The preferred airline of Islamonazis!  :?

Officers didn’t find any weapons or explosives on Asad, who was reportedly agitated and aggressive at times, according to an arrest affidavit. Authorities used a stun gun to subdue Asad on the jet bridge after he charged at an officer with fists clenched. He also chanted in a foreign language and threatened officers during a search.

Gee. Wonder what that ‘foreign language’ could have been? Hmmm….

“I’m not afraid of you cops, I’ve gotten in fights with cops in Ohio and broke their arms in three places,” he said, according to the affidavit. “I’ve broken skulls too!”

The affidavit noted that alcohol didn’t appear to be a factor during the incident.

Some folks don’t need alcohol to make them nuts! It’s bred into them and it just comes naturally.

The Transportation Security Administration says three of Asad’s companions were also taken off the plane and questioned. The plane departed after a search.

Were they let back on the plane? Or did they have to find another means of transportation to Detroit? Seems to me that the fruitcakes don’t need to blow up planes anymore. They can just cause a ruckus, get charged with some piddly thing, and disrupt the U.S. transportation system quite well. How many planes were delayed? I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if these sorts of “incidents” started happening on a regular basis.

Hormones in the Military

Making Babies in the US Military
by J. D. Longstreet

Just a snippet:

With all the babies being conceived at the front lines in the two wars in the Middle East, Afghanistan, and Iraq, another of the socialist government’s social experiments has failed.

Let me see how plain I can make this: Even a complete fool, a blathering idiot, an imbecile, a Moran, knows — without a shadow of a doubt — that if you put young men and young women together in an environment where hormones surge continuously they will find each other and they will copulate. It is Mother Nature’s way of insuring the survival of the species.

Everybody KNOWS this instinctively. Except, it would seem, for the feminists among us who deny the existence of natural law. Call it what you will — when you deny that young men and young women will not find a way to engage in sex ANYWHERE, including the battlefield, then you are denying the existence of such a thing as natural law.

OK. Just so the record is clear. I do not believe there is a role for women in combat, anywhere, anytime, under any circumstances. PERIOD! Women are the sacred “givers of life.” Without women the human species would die out — and quickly. Women should be protected, at all costs, even at the cost of the male’s life.

Nature (God, if you please.) created the male and the female differently with different characteristics. The male was made larger, muscular, and more aggressive. The female was made smaller but with the ability to hold within her body a new life which, when fully developed, would emerge as a brand new human being. The female would perpetuate life, she would insure that the human species would survive on this garden planet which was given us as our home.

Read the whole post here.

In case you aren’t aware, I am a female.  Yes, the good Lord made me completely different from the male of our species, with a completely different role in life.  There are male ‘jobs’, and there are female ‘jobs’.  One male job is to take care of the trash.  The female’s job is to make sure there is trash in there to take out.  Simplistic?  Yes, but it makes a point.  Vive la différence!

When it comes to women in the military, I have had a major problem with them being on the front lines.  Call me old fashioned, but I do not believe that it is in the woman’s best interest, nor the military in general, for them to be shot.  As J.D. says, if there were no women, there would be no men.  Period.  End of discussion.

In my personal opinion, the so called ‘women’s movement’ of the 60s and 70s, the feminists of the 80s and the feminazis of the 90s and 00s have done more damage to the relationship between men and women, than anything in my knowledge of history.  I admire the suffragettes of the late 1800s and early 1900s. They had a purpose, stuck to it, and women were granted the right to vote. What we have now is a bunch of females, making demands that are totally unrealistic. We are not men. We should not be treated like men. We should be treated with respect and deference. These females have pussified the males, and I don’t like it!

There is a LONG list of unintended consequences which we see in every day life, from the home to the federal government. Should women be allowed to hold positions of power? Well, sure, IF they are qualified. Today we have women in roles that are there solely because they are female. Why? Because it’s the politically correct thing to do. Doesn’t matter if they cause more harm than good, they’re women, and they MUST be given the opportunity to screw things up. Pfft!

Back to the issue. As J.D. states his case, women should NOT be on the front lines! Nature has a funny way of taking over, and if the military does not want women getting pregnant on the front lines, then women should not be on the front lines. How difficult is that to understand?

So, here’s a big for the powers that be.
