SAY HER NAME AND HELP STOP SYSTEMIC RACISM AGAINST WHITES IN 2021 !!!

JANUARY 8, 2021 – First, where my perspective is coming from.  As a Jew, I really don’t have a dog in the exaggerated race war fight that this country has and will forever experience.  White supremacists hate us Jews.  Blacks hate us Jews.  I honestly don’t know how Asians and Hispanics feel about us.  But, when your people have survived 4,000+ years of slavery and genocides, you have a different perspective about issues others have only been dealing with for 100-400 years.  Contact me in 3600 years if you have been subject to slavery and genocide all of those years.

Since Jews are from the Middle East and existed thousands of years before Caucasians came to be a few thousand miles away in Eastern Europe, I suppose I get classified as a brown person.  I sure know my skin color has never been close to white.  Nor black for that matter.  Being part of the most oppressed people in world history, I have always fought for those that were targeted by others.  In my lifetime, those groups have been Whites and Males.  It is about time people supported the very people that made our country the most successful one since The Roman Empire.

ASHLI BABBITT  Now, there is a name for everyone to have to say out loud!  She is the Air Force Veteran that was killed by police in the U.S. Capitol.  A white woman, of course.

I will start by saying that is truly sad that two of the last three Presidents this country has elected are racist.  Between 8 years under Obama and his racism (which is nothing compared to his wife!) against whites and now 4 years under Biden and his racism against blacks, it is no wonder this country has become so divisive and headed for its Second Civil War.  Regretfully, we will look back on what happened January 6th and say oh that was minor in comparison to what is happening today.  How sad is that going to be.  And I assume for many, quite scary.

If the protest on January 6th was Antifa and BLM, you would not have seen police anywhere.  No one would have been touched by the police.  These domestic terrorist groups would have set fires in the Capitol and spray painted and destroyed statues and paintings and more.  And the police would have just let them do it like they have for the past 4+ years.

But, instead it was mostly (there were people of all skin color involved) white people and therefore the police took the opportunity to use tear gas and real bullets to kill 4 people!  If you ever needed proof of the systemic racism the police have against white people, this was it.  Not to mention the Fake News Media that literally shed tears about what happened while reporting how great the brutal riots carried out by Antifa and BLM were last year and the years before.

As everyone is saying, this is not the America I know either.  An America that puts terrorists in Antifa and BLM up on a pedestal while ignoring the national bias against whites is a sad country indeed.

Some items for you to discuss in those wonderful conversations you are supposed to have with each other include:

20 million whites live in poverty.  Who is working to help them have equal opportunities?  Who is working to help them have a chance at the American Dream (whatever that is nowadays)?  The best way to help a country is to help the largest group of people in need.  Do this and the others will benefit, too.  The focus needs to be on these 20 million people first.

2020 was like every year for the past century – police killed more whites (over 350) than any other race.  This has always been the case.  Proportionality is irrelevant.  The vast majority of Americans are not criminals and do not encounter police in proportion to the population makeup.  If proportionality was relevant, then over 50% of these deaths would be women.  Instead it is 95% men!  Police being more willing to kill whites in encounters needs to be addressed. Let me state that I am not saying that most of these killings weren’t justified.  Violent encounters with the police usually means the citizen is a criminal and threatening the police in some way.  For the number of situations police deal with annually, to only have about 1,000 killings a year shows amazing restraint!  Whites need to demand equality and justice!  Males need to scream even more!  In fact, all people of all races and both genders need to do this!  We are ALL in this together.

During your conversations, ask why we still have Minority and Women Owned Businesses (MWOBs) as a category that is given significant weight in awarding contracts.  This form of systemic racism and sexism has been around for over 50 years.  If we are a country of equal people, equal opportunity, etc., how can we have this kind of blatant discrimination against whites and males?  This goes against our Constitution and the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  If the Federal and State Governments want to make equality for all a reality, they will eliminate the classification of MWOBs and consideration of such in awarding business to companies.

Question why people think everything (correction, only things they want) should be based on our population makeup.  This is one of the dumbest requests ever!  If we are to even consider this, then the NBA (and other sports leagues like the SEC in Football) need to immediately reduce the black player percentage from 80%+ to 13.4%!  Let’s start with sports first.  Then we can fire 50% of the female teachers and replace them with men who apparently don’t want to be teachers in the first place.  We can do the same with female nurses.  You see how moronic this idea is.  This is a free market.  People have the ability and right to choose the career they want.  Why force whites to play in the NBA if they either don’t want to or aren’t good enough?  Why force anyone into a profession or trade just because you think their physical characteristic should be proportionately represented?  That sounds like something China or Russia would do.  Our free country let’s people choose what they want to do.  And I have seen both genders and people of all skin colors in every single job type in my 56-year life.

They have issues they want to discuss.  You have the above issues you need to make them discuss.  Discrimination occurs for all races and sexism occurs for both genders.  Poverty is colorblind.  Life is difficult and we will never get rid of the weaknesses us humans have.  But, suck it up and overcome the obstacles instead of expecting others to give you special treatment.

Systemic racism against whites and sexism against males need to be the headline issues for 2021…and beyond.

Equality and Justice For All – or Equality and Justice for None!  One group of people cannot get favoritism at the expense of all others.  That will not work and will not solve anything.  You don’t eliminate bias by being biased!

SAY HER NAME – ASHLI BABBITT

ELECTION, GOLD, & MANN’S EXPERIMENT

AUGUST 12, 2020 – For those who have read my newsletters or blogs or whatever over the years, you may recall me saying that Gold puts in a top when it starts going up and down $50 or $75 or more a day.  Commodity tops are like stock market bottoms – spikes.  Gold was down $200 yesterday and has rebounded $70 today.  Silver dropped 20% in a day.  These are indications a top is occurring.  The markets always like to surprise us.  But, over the past 50 years, this has been the pattern for Gold.

Recent polls show Biden ahead by about 4 to 6 points in the battleground states.  We can assume 1 to maybe 2 points are overstated because of the significant number of conservatives that refuse to participate in these polls (e.g. moi).  This advantage can go away in a few days.  In 2016, Trump basically pulled it out in the last 3 or 4 days as voters faced the reality of voting.  And it is apparent the October ‘Surprise’ will be approval of a vaccine.  I hope no one is surprised when that announcement occurs!  It is already a known fact as the 30,000 volunteers in Savannah got their shots in July and October is when the results come in.  All of the above aside, right now Biden is the clear favorite to win per the polls.  Also, these polls do not reflect the results of the DNC telling Sleepy Joe yesterday that he has chosen Kamala Harris to be his VP.  I am not sure that will have much affect as it has been known for a few weeks she was one of the two finalists and her being in California is overkill as Biden will win that state by about 30 points.

I see that over 80,000 businesses have closed for good.  This will increase significantly as we go through the remainder of the year in an essential shutdown of our economy.  This is a significant cleansing of businesses that were not adequately capitalized.  I would hope Americans would learn two lessons from this crisis, but i doubt they will:

  1.  Never, ever, ever go into debt.  I realized early in my career that income producing real estate that had no mortgage could survive most downturns.  It was the debt that cost property owners to lose their investments.  The same goes for people.  Almost anyone can get by just paying their rent, utilities, cell phone bill, etc.  My step-daughter figured that out years ago.  She just sold her farm and bought a house nearby for all cash.  If she loses her job, she can get by working a minimum wage job.  I am so proud of her accomplishing this during a pandemic of all things.  At least one person listened to me lol
  2.  This isn’t my advice.  We all have been told to have 3-6 months of expenses in savings.  Most of the 80,000 businesses that have closed would likely still be surviving if they had followed this advice.  Granted this crisis will go past 6 months for certain industries, so even this advice would not have helped everyone.  But, it would not have hurt anyone!  And, obviously, John Q. Public would always be in much better shape if they had 6 months of expenses in the bank.

Sadly, people and companies will not follow the above.  For one, it is very difficult in an ever slowing world economy.  Also, our economy is not designed for long-term survival….just for short-term excess profits.  A hundred years from now people will be studying how the excesses of the past 100 years occurred and will swear to not repeat our mistakes.  It will probably work until one century the third peak generation of all time will be doing exactly what we have done (The Roman Empire and Baby Boomers are the two all-time peaks if you were wondering).

Re my life experiment….a week ago I eliminated all social media from my life.  I deleted all news apps from my phone and laptop and no longer watch or read any news.  My family will tell me a news item now and then:(  So far it is amazing.  I pick up my cell phone and check email and then I look it and have nothing more to need it for…except to check the weather.  I used to spend hours on the thing…now I barely touch it.  It is so refreshing to not think about anything controversial.  After 55 years of fighting, this brain is ready to rest:)  I know how I will vote the rest of my life.  So, it dawned on me I don’t need to debate issues (fruitless nowadays anyway) and I don’t need to know what is going on outside my own bubble.  I will keep up with real estate and markets.  I have always made my decisions based on data and not news anyway.  Day 7 and counting….I might post down the road how this is working out.

A total side note….if you like country music, go to YouTube and check out Morgan Wade.  She hasn’t made it big, yet.  I saw her in concert before The ‘Vid shut things down.  She is all I listen to now.  ‘The Night’ is her signature song.  For those who can relate to the subject of the song, it is a strong message.  Maybe one decade the world will know how to better help those with this illness.  But, it won’t occur in time in my lifetime.

Everyone take care….please don’t send me news stories lol

Godspeed
