Robots & Retards

The show this week was pre-recorded as I am probably swinging from a truck as you are reading this. Moving day(s) has arrived. Through it all, I have had to deal with a lot of people I would not otherwise interact with and I kept noticing that the quality of people has dropped sharply. I will post about my experience renting a moving truck, which will cause even a sunny optimist yo have dark thoughts.

Anyway, that is the show this week. It is about how the decline in intelligence will impact our live and society. The people who think AI will solve it or that robots will pick up the slack have not thought about the problem hard enough. All of those things will make the decline worse for the people with anything on the ball. Imagine Idiocracy by terminators are in charge instead of morons.

There is a coming colossal wave of firings in Corporate America. Citi announced layoffs already involving 20,000 people, expect this to accelerate. Of course, it will only be for YT. Not the diverse. The reason is AI. Most of Corporate C Suite have been convinced that AI (dumb and woke as can be) can do the jobs of those actually competent that don’t involve actual skilled physical labor. And even those are being cut to the bone, see all the railroad derailments due to cuts in crews and maintenance. So all the marketing, finance, accounting, etc. people will be replaced… Read more »

Meanwhile if the “Conservative Treehouse” is any indicator many are waiting for Trump to be elected and set things right. Within one week he said: He approves of the way Israel is dealing with the Gazans. “You have to finish the problem.” He believes we should forgive Budweiser. He again stated that we were lucky to have him as president because without him the covid vax would have taken much longer to bring to market thereby not saving millions of lives. So even if elected we will get no help from Trump. It is obvious he will be working for… Read more »

His character is The Boss, so he says boss-like things. It goes wrong when he decides to show other bosses that he’s the boss of his voters.

Conservatives love it, the sound of mister MAGA™ betraying normal Americans. No one will ever represent you losers! HAHA!

His marginal loss of favor among white men is because of it. Left alone he’d squander all their support. But his being persecuted offsets that, makes #onlyTrump necessary. The system can’t accept mere victory.

Off topic: People have different and often incompatible explanations about how politics works. For this reason, I take notice when someone makes a prediction about politics that can be evaluated, because it allows us to judge that person’s explanation. A recent example of such a prediction was Jared and Derb believing that the hostility to the chosen by non-whites, whom most non-whites see as white, would cause the chosen to abandon their promotion of anti-white policies. You can be the judge of the accuracy of that prediction. Even more recently, the normies conservative critics of woke Hollywood movies are rejoicing… Read more »

I’ve been in marketing and advertising for over a decade. If it was all about money, they’d put tall white men and women in all the advertising and movie plots. Research shows consistently that white consumers spend the most money in the West and these people prefer to see others who look like them on screen. Our Afrocentric music and movie industry is all top down propaganda. In a strange way, social media is providing alternatives to this but a lot of damage has been done.

If one believes this is all a “game”, then the decline in oil production is simply a ruse. For example, OPEC has limited production to keep prices high—but not too high. Of course, Russia is able to produce much more than now doing. Biden stopped pipelines and other aspects of production and delivery. Canada likewise with oil shale production. Of course, Venezuela has all sorts of sanctions and are in political turmoil. They sit on a lot of oil, albeit a poorer grade. So perhaps we are producing less, but there’s not real shortage of oil here or abroad—but there… Read more »

Opec does not have an infinite stock of oil to Tap.

The only country that come close to that state is Saudi Arabia, which has a stock much larger than their income needs (at present anyway) – so they have extraordinary production flexibility – which gives them some market price setting power.

Even so, they have a finite stock and not unlimited flexibility.

Most of those wells in that are taking their associated natural gas to process plants. They could have been flaring because the plant is down or the pipeline had not been built to the well site yet.

Regardless of the extent to which prisons fail to prevent crime or fail to sufficiently punish to deter crime, it is irrefutable that prisons are not the primary cause of crime. They usually mean it very convoluted and retarded ways. Like if you commit crimes and have felony convictions, it makes it harder to find legitimate work and forces people into crime through economic necessity. Or the old “my daddy was in prison and that’s why I’m a criminal” chain of causation. As if living with your criminal father is somehow conducive to raising productive members of society.

You have to commit a crime (in most cases) to actually to go to prison. You are confusing a secondary effect for the primary effect. Worse still, in most US cities you have to commit a ton of crime before you will ever see the inside of a state prison. Plus, unless you are killing people, as a juvenile, it is very difficult to end up in prison. Many, if not most of the guys who end up in prison, they have a long (but sealed) juvenile record as well. I am most certainly not saying our prisons are great.… Read more »

One’s best bet for getting manual labor done, is the Amish/Mennonites.

I needed a fence put in around an orchard, and two early 20’s teenagers dug the holes, set the posts in concrete, and cleaned up, all in one day.

For 32 posts…with a breaker bar and a post hole digger. They’re machines.

Most of the residential building around where I live is done by Amish or Mennonites. Most of the agricultural jobs are held by what the locals refer to as “Mexicans,” regardless of their actual place-of-origin. They work hard and are a net “plus” to the comunity. Outside of firearms-related crimes, the two biggest sources of criminal activity are drug related offenses and sex crimes, mostly perpetrated by native whites and imported negroes. Breaking that down, the whites are responsible for nearly all of the drug use and pedophilia (straight and homo) and the imported negroes (i.e., drifters from Philadelphia and… Read more »

Don’t the Amish typically stop school at the 8th grade and go into a trade? I suspect that prevents the kinds of situations you see in say Starbucks where the Ph.D. in English Literature doesn’t feel truly invested in his career of putting ice in a cup.

In light of the big picture presented in today’s podcast, a seminal question needs to be addressed. Can we fix what’s broken through reasoning, education, persuasion, grassroots mobilization, and modern civil-societal remedies; i.e. voting harder? Let’s look at the recent example of Ukraine. In 2019, Ukrainians elected Zelensky on a platform of seeking peace with Russia. Did that outcome occur? HELL NO IT DIDN’T. And now millions of average Ivans (normal white guys) are dead or seriously wounded, and this resource is gone forever (as well as their DNA).

As Ralph Wiggam would say, “I’m helping”.

So, yes, we’re helping Israel *and* its enemies. At least that was the story I heard. It makes no sense but then nothing the Bidenbots do does.

Our elites deny parts of objective reality (race, sex) and they encode that denial into their AI, which prevents the software from having an accurate model of reality.

Let’s watch for the differences between what AI is programmed to believe and what is reality. For example, if the AI has an encoded assumption that all races have the same abilities then there is no reason not to build an important factory in Somalia. The AI is programmed to dismiss the actual reasons that this is a terrible idea. We may be able to exploit that delta.

I think it’s worse than that. As I understand the LLM concept, the “knowledge” the AI has cannot be located precisely in some piece of code. It’s spread throughout the vast matrices that comprise the neural network that drives the responses. The only way to create a fully pozzed AI is to VERY carefully curate the training data. Basically, you need to create an alternate reality for it. This means that slow stupid humans become a “filter” for its data about the world.

Good point.

One day after class in grad school I was talking with a good ladyfriend and as we spoke I watched her hair start doing that.

As soon as I saw her hair do that I told her it was time to get in our cars and go home.

It’s interesting that you constantly mention shipping as that’s always been a pain point for employers that I’ve known. Just as one example I have a shipping clerk buddy who was framed for anti-black racisims (he himself is Hispanic) and subsequently fired. After a few years had passed that employer offered him, really, a fantastical amount of money to return to the job as they never found anyone to do the job properly (something I could have warned them about from my experiences with my current employer). Needless to say, he turned them down.

I was doing some research for work yesterday. In looking in to Microsoft’s latest Small Language Model, I discovered something about AI I did not know. A huge area of effort and measurement is put in to removing, “societal bias” and “toxicity”, from the model’s, “knowledge.” This is an industry-wide effort. I was looking for optimal ways to do Semantic Similarity Search, and stumbled upon this bit. Have a look at the bar chart embedded in this PR piece when discussing “bias and toxicity”: https://www.theaidream.com/post/exploring-phi-2-microsoft-s-latest-small-language-model-slm Notice the racial group that is missing?

130? Why not 127? Happy IWD.

Seems to me the gals are not well and truly liberated and equal until they quit marking their “this-or-that-day”, “first woman to do this”, “first woman to do that” “__________ women’s empowerment club/group/day/organization.”

As you know, Ostei, I’m a girl, and I find it all tediously exhausting and indicative of just how stupid and ill-fitted for real world competitive settings a lot of women are. They’re sitting ducks for leftists and corporations which exploit their inferiority complexes.

Imagine a company…

I went into Project Management many years ago to do all that innovative stuff. For brief periods in my career I was really doing it and loved it. Now, my projects are 95% navigating a team through a maze of red tape. Getting approvals from layers of risk committees, getting on the IT release schedule and going through their maze…

I’m going to go make some coffee and daydream about retirement.

So Trump is the last man standing after all … I asked an associate what would happen if Trump were convicted, and he replied Trump could lead the country from prison. What a bizarre, surreal spectacle that would be! I can only imagine Hitler in prison, in a very nice cell, dictating Mein Kampf to a nearby underling. I know Trump isn’t a big reader (I think the comments section of Zman’s column would bore him to tears) but maybe Trump will have a cameraman or two in the pen with him, making a documentary about his second term in… Read more »

Hitler didn’t become Chancellor until eight years after he got out of prison, so he didn’t govern from a jail cell.

When I was a kid I used to wonder how the German public could have possibly voted for a guy who had gone to prison. Now, after seeing how Trump has been framed by the rigged system, I understand…

Hitler wasn’t elected chancellor, and when he ran for president in ’32, he lost in a run off to Hindenburg.

The system was modeled somewhat like Britain’s. Hitler as leader of the second largest party was chosen by Hindenburg for the position of Chancellor. A poor choice in hindsight, but one old man Hindenburg thought unifying (a sharing of power) for a nascent democracy. Of course Hitler immediately sought to work over the opposition in the parliament and by the time Hindenburg politely died, parliament saw no need for a Presidency and Hitlerism had no pushback.

Meet Hugo Prueẞ, a Jewish architech of the Weimar Reich, which concentrated much power in Berlin. https://www.britannica.com/biography/Hugo-Preuss He was commissioned to draft a constitution for the new order. “Drawing extensively on both German and foreign concepts and precedents, he contributed a strong preference for administrative centralization; he sought to combine the political and economic principles of both liberalism and Socialism in the constitution.” One wonders how a guy like Hitler could have chiseled his way into the chancellery under the old system with its emperor and the aristocracy surrounding him.

He formed a minority government in a multiparty system. In parliamentary systems the head of the majority party becomes head of government. When no party gains a majority, multiple parties can forge a coalition government and name an individual to head it. When no coalition can be formed, the rules typically allow for the president (the nominal head of state) to name a head of government from one of the minority parties, typically until another election can be called. In the 1932 elections, the vote was pretty much split three ways between the communists, the Social Democrats, and the NSDAP.… Read more »

Trump is old and frail. Not Biden-level frail, but he would get there very fast if he were thrown in prison.

It’s a very sad state of affairs when the only hope for many people is a geriatric egomaniac.

A leader should not be older than in his 50’s, ideally less than that. At least at the time when he first gets to the top.

Yes. I hesitate to write this, but in my area there is an academy that is still 100% young, extremely healthy, fit and intelligent white men. They are available for odd jobs. They are punctual, on-time, do anything required from no to high skill and they fit our biospirit.

While the eye of Sauron is probably on them, for now there are still pockets that are unspoiled by the spite that wants to destroy us and our world.

“From 1916 to 1970, during this Great Migration, it is estimated that some SIX MILLUON black Southerners relocated to urban areas in the North and West.”

A Haitian lab technician killed my dad. She though it was ordered to sterilize donor tissue for four minutes when minimum is fourteen minutes time. The surgeon thus implanted unsterilized donor tissue into my father. This introduced three types of massive infection and he died a horrible death. My stepmother received the 250k minus lawyers fees, which is the maximum permitted under law. Get used to this sort of medical standard.

The last estimate I read was between 100-150k death per year due to hospital error—just like you describe. One can only imagine in horror how that will multiply with our decreasing populace IQ. One thing those foreigners bring wrt hospitalization—they tend to stay in the rooms with patients and serve their loved one’s needs. Wife has a good friend, former nurse.

No worries brother. Mid-seventies. Third wife. Great State of Michigan, western side. Dropped out of EE at Michigan, my alma mater except for terminal CS, to become Grand Rapids top radio personality and then wisely invested his meager earnings into a race car with which he actually used to first prize at races. Later went back and finished a finance degree. Not my biological father but often behaved like it. Good dude and I would have benefited in life if he was still alive.

From my observations, nobody just “stands around” anymore. The instant they get a free moment, they whip our their handy-dandy sail foam and go drone-cyborg mode. And I would argue sail foam addiction is the source of more mental problems than all the prescribed psychotropes combined.

I wouldn’t discount the impact legal marijuana is having. There are now some regions of AINO chock full of stoned people, on very powerful THC products relative to what was available in the past.

Yep, and also note, the age to purchase restrictions in these laws are absolute BS. 1) As with alcohol, you can usually find a “friend” to purchase for you, but 2) Every one of these laws is worded the same. You can buy from a store or grow your own cannabis! You are allowed to cultivate a half dozen or so plants, legally—just like you can brew your own beer or distill alcohol.
