Good morning, Mr Maguire!

Wanted to draw attention to this report https://www.livingcities.org/resources/353-racial-equity-here-learning-report-lessons-from-5-cities-operationalizing-racial-equity and its new vision of the role of government.

rse

The same newsletter linking that report also hyped the NYT 1619 Project with this language--

The 1619 Project is a major initiative from The New York Times observing the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe the country’s history, understanding 1619 as our true founding, and placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of Black Americans at the very center of the story we tell ourselves about who we are.

jim nj

rse,

I don't think I've ever commented on your educational posts.

Some of them are extremely tedious and filled with words them are overly pretentious and seem to be used to obscure what is going on. I tend to distrust anything that can't be explained in simple English, whether it's lawyers or educators.

I mean no criticism of you here. I wouldn't be aware of this without you, but I'm astounded that people can't see through the BS. It's on a par with the "climate emergency" propaganda.

That educators are more concerned with "what to think" rather than "how to think" is abysmal.

Melinda

Now you get the “education” part of Lenin’s “message”.

Go read his environmental stuff and see if you can find any continuity/overlap.

jim nj

I haven't read the 1619 Project materials, but from what I have heard it is a third-rate stab at history that avoids nuance and perspective.

In other words, propaganda.

jim nj

Melinda,

Yes. "Education" has many different objectives. "Compliance" in many countries. "Diversity" seems to be the latest incarnation.

It pre-supposes that certain racial groups engage in "group-think" even though there is no evidence to support that.

If "elite" schools aren't diverse, the next step should be schools for others that want to learn and behave, and be separated from the predators.

Create such schools and many could transfer to the "elite" schools.

Melinda

You suppose too much.

Lenin’s actual speeches and writings about both are worth discovery, in and of themselves. The language he uses, even in translation, has to be seen to be believed. It’s what Ira Einhorn embraced as his vehicle.

jim nj

Re-posting from last night since I saw no comments on this.

https://www.porkbusiness.com/article/african-swine-fever-not-under-control-suderman-says

Ah, my question answered.

"Suderman’s sources on the ground in China claim the losses are closer to 45% year-on-year, and they may be even higher than that.

Some large operations have restocked after attempting to disinfect their facilities, he said. Unfortunately, the disease struck again and he knows of three that have lost their herd for the second time."

Depending on how reliable this source is it fits with my thinking of higher losses than have been reported.

And it fits with my idea that existing hog farms may not be able to recover.

I don't know what will kill the virus, but, at the least, they should be using lots of sprayed chlorine, or something.

Tongue in cheek, I watched "The Modern Farmer" for years and know what I'm talking about.

My point being that I don't think pig farming is falling. I think it is collapsing. I don't think they can re-establish pig-farming at a site that hasn't been decontaminated fully. If I am correct consider the consequences. And the army worm infestation.

“The infestation of bedbugs at The New York Times office” @OANN was perhaps brought in by lightweight journalist Bret Stephens, a Conservative who does anything that his bosses at the paper tell him to do! He is now quitting Twitter after being called a “bedbug.” Tough guy!

jim nj

Ira Einhorn, I had to look that up. Soon as I did, I remembered the horrible story.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ira_Einhorn

I have a low regard of Marx and his followers, that may blind me.

I also have a low regard for Keynes, that may blind me also.

About thirty years ago I read a book on the history of economic thought. I can't remember the name of the book, but it laid out the theories very well and showed how later economists refined or disputed the earlier theories. I was able to follow the conversation until it got to Marx.

He made no sense to me.

Keynes theories were useful for a one-time, but not prolonged intervention, in the economy. People would get wise to government over-spending and expect new inflation and invest accordingly.

Yet Keynesian theory survived as governments over-spent and inflation got baked into the equation.

God forbid anyone takes the new MMT theory seriously.

jim nj

Henry,

I think it's that serious with the pig-farming.

Melinda

Nevermind.

We are tracking closely tropical storm Dorian as it heads, as usual, to Puerto Rico. FEMA and all others are ready, and will do a great job. When they do, let them know it, and give them a big Thank You - Not like last time. That includes from the incompetent Mayor of San Juan!

The Infamous Ignatz

Our trade policies with China should be the same as they were with the Soviet Union, another communist tyranny seeking world domination, only doing a better job of it than the Russkies ever did.
In a variation on Lenin's apparently apocryphal gag, Xi and company are selling us the rope to hang ourselves with. The only blessing is it's so cheap there's a fairly good chance it'll break before we croak.

The Infamous Ignatz

I see lots of evidence that keto benefits those with actual or borderline health issues.
Is there evidence it benefits otherwise healthy people more than a different diet that avoids obvious things like white flour, sugar and processed/junk foods?

rse

The Racial Equity link above is not actually about education and although living cities started as a jt venture of the Rock and Model T foundations as the renewal began around what would become lincoln center, it is now supported by every major investment and commercial bank in the country's philanthropic vehicle.

Enormously influential with deep pockets and it is a vision that justifies political authority over individuals and communities at every level. Basically the vision behind 1619 gets used to create the anger and angst that makes fundamental transformation at structural levels supposedly justified.

Melinda

So you DO want me to look at the chart of Live Cattle...

The Infamous Ignatz

Speaking of actual health issues, that tub o' lard flautist Lizzo from the last thread also "performed" at the VMA where the gruesome Missy Elliott did. Her preferred stage backdrop was a gigantic, inflated pair of POC buttcheeks with a red thong and about forty feet across and thirty feet high pulsating behind her.

And yes I note the irony in my comment but my preferred backdrop is not gigantic and her thong is yellow. BIG difference.
And I'm not on TV.

Shockingly, banks having local governments as their primary lending customers is exactly how much of the EuroZone is structured, and has been structured, for the last 25 years or so. Care to guess which parties are the deadbeats in that loan structure?

I think the big benefit of Keto is putting your body into the fat burning mode without having to go to extraordinary measures. Really helps people shed weight who need to.

If your weight is good, blood pressure low, and no diabetic tendencies probably not necessary.

Another Bob,

I am not worried about Biden. I personally don't think he has the health and stamina to make it through the primaries. He has had 2 brain aneurysms in the past, exhibits signs of cognitive impairment, and is looking increasingly frail.

I think he was pushed into running in order to hold onto moderate democrats who (when they looked at the rest of the field) would either stay home or migrate to the Trump camp.

Jane

JIB,

Are they still calculating you as the hit place for the storm?

"sources close to the investigation" as usual

The source of the logjam: the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which Trump is in the process of shaking up after the resignations last month of its director, Dan Coats, and principal deputy, Sue Gordon. “Establishment” officials in that agency are still dragging their feet, say the sources, who spoke on condition that they not be further identified.

Yesterday I went to lunch with some of the guys in the neighborhood.

We went to downtown Delaware, Ahia which is 9 miles as the crow flies, and is home to sleepy Ohio Wesleyan University.

Nonetheless, the hole in the wall we had lunch at has the distinction of having the largest Bourbon collection in Ahia. Over 400 hundred different varieties, and quite an impressive collection of Ryes and Scotches as well.

And best of all prices are not just reasonable, but are actually low.

I will figure out today what an Uber costs back and forth:)

Deutsche Bank is declining to comment on Lawrence O’Donnell’s reporting that Russian oligarch’s co-signed Trump’s loans. The information came from a single source who has not seen the bank records. NBC has not seen those records and has not yet been able to verify the reporting.
====================================
This is from the producer of Morning Joe, so it seems to me that they are worried about liability and/or looking like idiots because O'Donnell was just making stuff up.

We are struck with the reality that crimes charged in DC will be before DC juries and they will be less likely to fault any Prog for anything.

That should NEVER stop the energetic prosecution of crimes so important that they must be revealed in open court for all to see. If, in the face of 100% of the evidence, the crook skates that is on the population of DC and will only confirm that Federal Crooks inside DC are immune to laws that the rest of the country respects. If anything, knowing that a fake not guilty verdict is possible/probable should encourage and empower the prosecutors to be even more aggressive and revealing in the story they tell the nation.

OL @ 10:41

The likelihood of a bogus not guilty verdict by a DC jury also points up the need for more aggressive actions like pre-dawn SWAT raids, smashing up drfendant’s homes and seizing all their stuff, holding their kids at gunpoint, pushing for excessive bail, going after family, friends and coworkers of the defendant, leaking evidence, etc.

If the process is the punishment for conservatives who run afoul of prog prosecutors, then it can be a punishment for leftist crooks, too.
