A Very Crappy Podcast

For some reason, things became a real grind for me the last couple of days. I’ve been so busy with the day job, I think it is just starting to wear on me. As a result, I’m not in the best frame of mind and that, in turn, makes me less productive. This week I decided to do some lighter material in order to lighten my mood a bit. It really did not work, as recording last night was a real grind. I had to start over so many times I started to lose track, so if the sound is not the best at some points, that’s why.

Yesterday’s post about the tax was another product of having a bad aura. I stopped to get coffee on the way to the office and the locals were doing their thing. At some point I thought to myself, “Why do we have to tolerate this?” I suspect lots of normal men have this thought cross their mind these days. Here in Lagos, it is not just the natives, but the imports that tax the soul. Our betters are dumping the United Nations here, as if we don’t have enough trouble. Maybe they just hate Lagos.

That said, you can’t walk around with a lemon in your pocket, unless you are a left-wing female, so you have to find ways to lift the spirits. This week’s show started out to be a normal grab bag type show, but then a theme emerged, I had some Xirl science stuff ready, so I included that, even though it did not quite fit with the theme. On the other hand, the crap papers that come from the grievance studies people are excellent examples of the show title. Close enough for a dissident podcast.

The segment on smart toilets was still on my mind when I woke up this morning. I just can’t stop thinking about the meetings that go on around designing a smart toilet. I keep imagining a managerial type talking about the opportunity to collect data on people’s bathroom habits, which they can then monetize by selling to advertisers. You know that will be one result of the “connected home.” You will go in to do your thing and an ad for product will appear in the bowl water or start playing through a speaker.

This already happens with mobile phones. Those who travel a lot have surely got the mysterious text message welcoming you to an airport or a location. It will not be long before Alexa welcomes you home by offering you a deal on product. You’ll need to answer a survey to get your smart toilet to let you lift the lid. Whenever I read about the connected him, I immediately think that the future will be crap. OK, that is the last crap joke of the week. Please remember to tip your waitresses.

This week I have the usual variety of items in the now standard format. Spreaker has the full show. I am up on Google Play now, so the Android commies can take me along when out disrespecting the country. I am on iTunes, which means the Apple Nazis can listen to me on their Hitler phones. The anarchists can catch me on iHeart Radio. YouTube also has the full podcast. Of course, there is a download link below.

Know the feeling. Had to do something on the upper east side last night and easiest way home was to grab the commuter train at 125th/Harlem–hence a trek through the off rush hour “vibrancy”—the now open call drug dealing in 4/5 station (thank you DeBlasio) a guy pissing on the wall right outside the subway entrance and the usual gauntlet of drunk/stoned/cranked nogs between the subway and the station. The cops, who under Giuliani would have been rousting the miscreants, were now clustered–five of them–playing with their smartphones in front the the Metro-North station. It just pissed me off.

The monkeypeople never cease to amaze. Like the old joke goes, If you lock three Jews in a room overnight, when you come back in the morning, somehow they’ve founded nine tax-free National Jewish Councils, stolen your grampa’s retirement fund, and started a war in Yemen. Similarly, if you lock three monkeymen in a room overnight, when you come to unlock them in the morning, somehow they’ve figured out how to shoot nine Brothas and rape five White girls… but they couldn’t figure out how to unlock the door.

It does not take much time at all. The premise of Kelling and Wilson’s “broken windows” theory is correct — it’s elementary, it’s hard to believe anyone ever would’ve doubted it. But millions do. All of the wine-and-dog moms and aunts whose dream was live in Manhattan or Brooklyn forever, on holiday from reality, are in for a very rough 2020s. Add to the problem the retirements of those who started in the 90s with the NYPD — and have some institutional memory of actual police work — replaced by those whose sole experience on the job was scrolling on… Read more »

The Washington Compost article is more TP-USA two-ply that shows the Trump GOP’s inability to crap or get off the pot. Trump’s dropping a Romney by making Hispanics Number One, and his Potemkin 14 miles of semi-restored fence in Otay Mesa shows Whites they’re Number Two to him. At the rate of 1 mile every 3 months, the Big Beautiful Wall will be complete in 60 years. The smell of this BS makes me want to flush him in 2020.

If Trump wants a landslide 2020 win he should consider running as an Independent. At this point he has zero need for GOP backing (he never had it in the first place), and it would galvanize his base to vote. At this point I’m with you … Trump is eyebrow-deep in the swamp.

Trump becoming an Independent would certainly free him from a lot of ruling class baggage that comes with the GOP but I wonder if the party actually wants him more than he wants them at this point. Consider that if he goes Independent they have some not very appealing choices 1. Scramble to find some new candidate who is sure to lose in a three way race – Trump, Generic Old White Guy Republican, and Comrade Rainbow Diversity Gumdrop. This is the Perot scenario again. The only difference is that Trump might actually beat Gumdrop while Perot lost to President… Read more »

Since when has a duly elected President actually run things? It should be painfully obvious to everyone that it is the Administrative State/Crony-Capitalist/Media Complex that runs what is left of the United States.

The refusal of American government to honor the Second Amendment is a confession that they lack the consent of the governed. I used to be a “don’t go there” guy on defending the 2A on the basis of resisting government, considering it to be Ruby Ridge fuel. But that’s what it stands for, on the shoulders of a prior century of English law expressly enacted to prevent a repeat of their prior disarmament by a crappy king. We were intended to have whatever armament necessary to make mass oppression a net negative for government. Contra Robert Francis Cornholio, that means… Read more »

Exactly right. Resistance on the Ruby Ridge model is a literal dead end. And I agree, I think our 2A right was intended to include any/all weapon that could be wielded (including support/maintenance) by the individual. Machine gun – check. Bazooka – check. This particular right has been frittered away since the 1934 NFA. Most people don’t know that WW1 vets brought their full-auto machine guns home as personal weapons, or that gun-control goes back nearly 90 years.

It actually included all weapons at the time including artillery. The reason? The Letter of Marque and Reprisal allowed individual armed merchantmen to attack persons under such a letter during wartime or other times. Properly under the intended law if we had the resources you and I could with Federal permission drop cruise missiles on America’s enemies. We also would not have any standing federal military except for the Navy though this would include Marines and of course carriers these days There would also be militia, State national guards However the 30’s with its drive to industrial totalitarianism was terrible… Read more »

This is somewhat off-topic, but a thought occurred to me this week:

Is today for Hispanics what the 1950’s were for Whites? In other words, is it a great time to be alive that will eventually be looked back upon wistfully?

They’re out of their sh***oles and the whole of society is set up to serve them. Sounds like it’s a great time to be brown.

I wasn’t around then but one massive difference between the 50s and “the current year” is AA and the welfare state. If Steve Camarota’s numbers are correct, and > 70% of immigrants from Mexico and Central America are welfare dependent (80% for the DR,) then you’d think they wouldn’t be so eager for whitey to become a minority. Because then the Gravy Train stops. And it’s doubtful that Asians will be eager to pick up the slack. Interesting times.

Problem is that with low intellect folk, the aspect of foresight is lacking as well as IQ. They live in the present and handle tomorrow when it gets here. Most of your recent “migrants” are in this camp. But they are not alone, a good deal of poor Whites and second and third generation minorities are this way as well. Yes, one day the gravy train will stop and then there will be riots and civil unrest. No way around it as long as our political leadership refuses to recognize HBD science.

Who cares. Even if you managed to pull some pitifully tiny number of blacks or Hispanics somewhat over to our side, it doesn’t mean squat.

Who’s reading this crap? Why – you are, Z. And most of us read it too.

The NYT is not there to inform you. They exist to sell copy and advertising and that’s it. Because they’ve blown their integrity and reputation – that means trolling the readers to get clicks.

And maybe there IS some merit to it. Confronted with a chitter full of lesbians, perverts and drunks – I might be tempted to roll a hand grenade into the open stall, turn on my heel, and go outside to chit on the sidewalk like they do in San Francisco…

The NYT is not there to sell copy and advertising any more. It is there to spout the rantings of its leadership, who are wealthy and connected enough to not give a hoot whether the enterprise succeeds or fails over time. Leadership cares about subscriptions and clicks, for the most part, to assure themselves that the word is getting out.

Much like the mainline liberal churches, who are on a quick nosedive to zero congregants. They know it and don’t care, because promoting the same rantings while killing the messenger is worth it to them.

How to disarm the Black population—or any other segment—is the question. The answer is, you can’t. Forget about Constitutional rights or the courts. It is impossible. The only way even remotely feasible is the attempted disarmament of everybody. You think that the Blacks currently involved in firearms crime are legal possessors now? Of course not. They obtain and carry despite a complete prohibition. You’d need to obtain permission to stop and frisk every single Black person and obtain warrantless searches of homes in Black neighborhoods. There is not enough manpower in the country to attempt this. Good idea though. 😉

We lost the battle wrt 2nd Amendment right’s when the scotus decided we could register and tax full automatic weapons in the 30’s. Since that is now the law of the land, it is a short step towards the same restrictions for all semi-automatics or even the elimination thereof. This will have the effect of leaving the deer and duck hunters with their bolt actions and shotguns—restricted to 5 rounds or less without external magazines.

Indians and blacks weren’t Americans and so didn’t get rights. OTOH, some slaves did have guns. But this scheme would never work. Most of the problem blacks are already prohibited possessors and it doesn’t help. They will still be carrying around stolen guns. The only real help would be outlawing their girlfriends from legally buying the guns and allowed baby-daddy to use the gun.

Those smart water appliances sound absurd! The only “smart water” appliances I have are moisture detectors behind my toilets, sinks and clothes washer that sound an alarm if they get wet . Sort of like a “smoke detector” for water. You can also buy an automated mains valve that will turn off the water to the house if moisture detectors get alarmed.

Member

That is actually a really good idea. An old friend of mine used to work cleaning out flooded basements and laundry rooms when the hoses that go to the washer burst. He mostly dealt with waterproofing issues, but he also got a decent amount of business from the burst hose problem (he was able to write reports that could be used for insurance purposes). That water detector can mean the difference between a wet floor and a few feet of water.
