Early Monday morning, Imani Cezanne wrote on Twitter that she had been escorted by security off of an airplane because she was wearing a Black Lives Matter shirt. “Today I was escorted off of a plane by two armed caucasian male officers. I have never believed so strongly that I could die at any moment,” Cezanne wrote. She also posted a picture of the shirt she had been wearing, captioning the image, “What I was wearing when I was unnecessarily ejected from my flight because the FA felt ‘threatened.’ Coincidence?”A flight attendant tossed this chick off a plane because she had a shirt on with the names of various black people. Really. And this chick "never so strongly believed she was going to die at any moment". Really. This is so over the top that it isn't even funny. Trayvon, named on her shirt certainly knew what it felt like to "never so strongly believe" he was going to die. This chick was never even remotely in such danger. But lets get back to the actual incident that got her removed from the plane in her own words:

One of the problems with the current left is their increasing inability to control their emotions and evaluate situations rationally. This is seen with the "safe spaces" rage among college children, and I do mean "children". It is seen in the irrational responses to things like "Trump 2016" chalkings on college campuses. To be fair the supposed adults who are supposed to be running theses institutions and are supposed to be setting the example are failing in their job of properly socializing these children. Still though, it is sad to see these emotional midgets masquerading as "strong black people". Our last example of this class of people was Dr.(!) Imani Perry of Princeton University(!), where she discussed how afraid she was by being held accountable for a ticket she declined to pay and court summons she decided to ignore. Today's example is of the would be airline passenger kind.

I haven't posted on religion in a long time. I'll break that silence today because it's Easter and I had all kinds of Christian imagery around me annnnnd...because of something I was watching last night. Psalms 23 is a popular psalm. It reads, in part:
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.Why the reference to a rod and staff? Particularly in the Old Testament? Well since we know that the Khemetic Neters are often represented with rods and staffs (and holding the Ankh, symbol of life). Below is Horus:
I saw this map of where Sanders has been winning and where Clinton has been winning:

In the past I have been very sympathetic to the European countries and victims of the terrorist activities. I was under the very mistaken impression that these folks had little idea what their "leaders" had been doing to their countries. I thought they didn't quite understand what the EU was doing to their once sovereign states. I was very mistaken. Any sane people would not invite persons hostile to their culture and peoples to live among them in large numbers. They would not allow them to create "no-go" areas of insular communities where the police are afraid to enforce the national laws. If you don't believe me look at Japan. Look at China. Look at Hungary. Look at Poland. The leadership of these places understand exactly who they represent. They are not afraid to be proud of who they are and they do what they must to maintain their identity. To be blunt, they are not traitors. The French leadership and a large percentage of their population are traitors to their own countries. I'm not going to beat around the bush with this. Let us state it plainly and clearly. The French got what they had coming to them. The Belgians have gotten what they had coming to them. The Germans, and all those countries who have invited hostile persons to leech off their governments while large numbers of their people assault and rape citizens. Each of them will continue to get what they have coming to them until they are either made to completely submit or they rise up. After the mass killings in France, the political elite of that country banded and conspired to prevent the National Front, the only party with the interest of the French nation at heart from getting majority votes in places it was doing extremely well in the first polling. But it would be a mistake to place all the blame on the elites. The French people saw what the parties were doing and went along with it. The majority of the French people conspired with the "leadership" to deny FN wins. Why? Because they didn't want to be seen as racist. This desire is so strong in these people that they are completely willing to have their fellow French citizens, their countrymen killed. If they care so little about their nation and people then I I could care even less. That the killers were living in Belgium and freely travelled between countries and their neighbors knew who they were and did nothing to cooperate with the authorities in the country they supposedly called "home". makes it clear that these people are hostile inhabitants that should be removed. I'm sure some idiot reading this is thinking Japanese internment. I'll note that as far as is known, no Japanese in the US during WWII were randomly blowing themselves and other people up. They weren't running up into dance halls and concert halls killing people. To me that difference matters. A lot. Beyond that the so called leadership of Belgium has even gone to the extent of not funding arts by actual Belgians because it is "too white". This pathological hatred of Europeans by their own kind is unprecedented in history. Certainly Europeans did some extremely bad things in their time, but the pendulum has swung to such an extreme opposite that Europeans as a collective seem to have no sense of basic national self-respect. And the citizens have apparently decided that it is more acceptable to live in what amounts to a police state with military personnel wandering around with high power automatic weapons and giving the state more and more surveillance powers than to be "right wing" and do the one thing that would provide for their safety and liberties: Remove the threatening population. When the first reaction of the press after Islamic terrorism is to warn about Islamophobia and how Syrian refugees are not a problem you know that the people are lost. So no, I am not Belgium. Belgium doesn't even want to be Belgium. They made their bed. The bedbugs are now biting.

While I am certainly sympathetic to the idea of living wages I am not ignorant of the very real consequences of paying extremely low skilled workers relatively high wages for work. One of the reasons is that unlike when Socialism and Communism first reared their heads, there is a mode of labour that threatens everybody's jobs in the near future: Automation and artificial intelligence. There are only two things that stop automation from taking off: Technological development and cost of product. As Moore's law is being smashed to bits the cost of product as well as it's ability to perform has been come down dramatically. As the costs of human labour increases, automation becomes increasingly "profitable". As those machines become profitable humans see themselves unemployed. Last year I pointed out to the building disaster that the minimum wage advocates are creating:
Hibbs says that the $15-an-hour minimum wage will require a staggering $80,000 in extra revenue annually. “I was appalled!” he says. “My jaw dropped. Eighty-thousand a year! I didn’t know that. I thought we were talking a small amount of money, something I could absorb.” He runs a tight operation already, he says. Comix Experience is open ten hours a day, seven days a week, with usually just one employee at each store at a time. It’s not viable to cut hours, he says, because his slowest hours are in the middle of the day. And he can’t raise prices, because comic books and graphic novels have their retail prices printed on the cover.You would be tempted to say that this is not an issue of automation and you'd be right. But imagine if that store owner could run his store entirely with robots and leave it open 24/7? Well lets look at what Carls Jr. is looking to do:
Carl’s Jr. CEO Andy Puzder believes that fully-automated eateries are the future since his visit to Eastsa, one such establishment located in Canoga Park, California. "If you're making labor more expensive, and automation less expensive — this is not rocket science," Puzder told Business Insider.Apparently rocket science to some people.
The average fast food employee is 29 years old with a high school diploma, many of whom are single parents, The Washington Post reported. With a median pay of $8.92 an hour, one fifth of fast food employees’ families live below the poverty line – costing the US government $7 billion in welfare payouts. Puzder believes that raising the minimum wage will be worse for fast food employees in the long run.Single parents you say? There was a time when "single parents" was a rare thing and teens were the usual employees. What happened? Starts with a "f".
Whether or not the minimum wage is increased, Puzder makes a case for moving over to fully automated restaurants for other reasons. "They're always polite, they always upsell, they never take a vacation, they never show up late, there's never a slip-and-fall, or an age, sex, or race discrimination case," says Puzder of the benefits of machines versus man.Imagine. No insurance for employees. No workers comp. No paying for employees who are not actually working (sick and vacation days). I'm not saying that workers shouldn't have these things. I'm saying that these things cost. This last part was particularly instructive:
"Millennials like not seeing people," the Carl’s Jr. CEO said. "I've been inside restaurants where we've installed ordering kiosks ... and I've actually seen young people waiting in line to use the kiosk where there's a person standing behind the counter, waiting on nobody."The very behavior of the next generation is ushering in their own employment demise.

Half marathon race done. Blogging is back on. The below underscores a huge problem with certain black communities. It is reminiscent of the father that told me that his son, who died while being detailed by customers of a store he was trying to steal from, is just like any other son. And that all black boys steal at some point in their lives and therefore condemning his actions and acknowledging that his son's actions are directly responsible for his own death is "wrong." I called and continue to call bullshit on that. But he's not alone. From Miami:
On Thursday, police say Johnson burglarized a home south of 79th Street near I-95 — just blocks away from where he lives. The 54-year-old woman told police her surveillance system alerted her to the break-in of her home. She said she rushed home and found the teen climbing out of a window. “She observed a subject leaving the home through the rear,” said police Det. Dan Ferrin.Just like Michael Brown of Ferguson fame, Even being caught on camera in the act of committing a crime is not enough for folks to shut up. But what marks this as an egregious case of fucked up parenting is this:
“You have to look at it from every child’s point of view that was raised in the hood,” said Harris. “You have to understand… how he gonna get his money to have clothes to go to school? You have to look at it from his point-of-view.”So as long as you were brought up "in the hood" you should be excused from the consequences of criminal behavior. In fact you shouldn't be held to any standard of civilized behavior because you gotta get that money and clothes so you can get this hoes.

Continuing our weekend of children, a report on child soldiers of the Islamic State:
In the past six months, IS propaganda has featured 12 child killers. According to the researchers, between 1 August last year and 9 February this year, they identified a total of 254 events or statements featuring images of children. In an effort to put brutality into their daily routine, the group encourages youths to hold up decapitated heads or play football with them. IS uses intimidation as a recruitment tool, warning that those who refuse to obey will be tortured or raped.And
Less than a month ago, IS released a new disturbing clip showing a British boy, nicknamed 'Jihadi Junior' and thought to be aged four, blowing up three prisoners. The child wearing an IS headband is seen pressing a button on a remote control device seconds before a car containing alleged “British spies” explodes
