In general, normal white people have absolutely nothing against blacks. However, most white people find it offensive to constantly be compared to blacks. Naturally and understandably, most normal white people are not interested in blacks or being part of black culture. And yet, whites are somehow believed responsible for the chronic problems of blacks, that they have an obligation be the caretaker of blacks. The unending plight of blacks and the false analogies and comparisons to whites is beyond absurd. All most white people wish for is to be left alone, to live their lives in peace and prosperity with their own people and culture. Of all the people blacks should be compared to, whites should logically be the last. The obvious gap between whites and blacks always has and always will be great. Genetically and culturally, whites and blacks are the most separated on the evolutionary ladder of mankind, have the least in common among the racial groups. In all respects it is obvious all other racial groups are much closer to blacks than are whites. Continuing to compare blacks with whites is at best a travesty, disingenuous, and creates unneeded confusion and angst among the misinformed. If blacks must be compared to others, please do not continue to compare them unfairly to those who share no similarities or commonality in nature or otherwise. If black comparisons must be made, the comparison should be with like kind or those of shared characteristics, i. e., Blacks/Mexicans/Hispanics/Asians/Indians, etc..
Pretty much sums it all up. It’s all true. But, as the Geico commercial says ‘We already know that.’ Realtor.com and the other third party portals are only interested in attracting eyeballs to their website to generate ad revenue. However, the entire argument is likely already dated, irrelevant, all about nothing. The real danger to real estate agents and the traditional brokerage business model is extinction. Disintermediation is the operative principle underlying disruptive technology and the world of online commerce. In fact, more and more consumers no longer believe real estate agents are necessary or relevant to, or provide added value to the real estate transaction. According to business wonks who study current business trends, more and more consumers no longer think of or associate real estate agents with their selling or buying decisions, activity. As a result, so-called third party real estate portals will necessarily cease to exist in the rapidly emerging new world of e-commerce. It’s already happening in plain sight..
Of course the demand is there from those looking for subsidies. Of course the demand is not there for those expected to pay the bill for those looking for subsidies. Of course the system makes no economic sense and cannot mathematically survive – unless – surprise – government pays the subsidies with tax or imaginary fiat currency. It’s never been about health care. It’s always been about government control, manipulation, power. We get it..
What the author says is all true. Except the part that (may) not be. The trend in history strongly points to new technology and the web inevitably making the very notion of ‘government’ as we know it irrelevant, perhaps obsolete. New technology and consensus business platforms are already emerging to provide the objective basis for currency. This new system does not rely on trust because the need for trust is not required. The elegant laws of mathematics provides certainty without possibility of government corruption..
The article makes common sense. Of course, the US would be better off with a draft. Throughout history the actual combat of war has been most always fought by the poor, the underprivileged, the lower class. This is clearly demonstrated by the demographic makeup of the so-called volunteer US military. A draft would likely significantly decrease the current warlike posture of the US. When those in power were faced with the possibility their privileged children might be put in harms way the same as the others, war would only be commenced when the need was absolute..
As we all realize, the real issue is not about health care. Quality health care is a good thing. We understand this. Rather, it is about overreaching government coercing reasonable people to purchase a product against their will. At issue is whether people have the right to make their own personal healthcare decisions or not. It is also about government intentionally interfering with and disrupting the normal flow of commerce and business, costing citizens billions of dollars in damages, irreparable harm, emotional distress. Again, should government interfere with and impose burdens upon those who choose to not purchase insurance, or to purchase insurance tailored to their personal needs, instead of the unlimited needs of others? The issue is about freedom from unreasonable government intrusion into the private lives of citizens. .
Is there a reason the Congress has not taken steps to impeach the pretend president? Clearly, the law and Constitution are worth fighting for. It’s all become so surreal. One has difficulty believing this is still America and not some third world backwater led by an incompetent buffoon..
