MLK’s Gift To America

MLK’s Gift To America

Honestly, this is an example of MLK’s greatest gift to America. His successes in the Civil Rights Movement directly led to the re-desegregation of swimming pools, thereby allowing us to enjoy such a wonderful Afrodite rising from the water. 😉

So, thank you, Rev. Dr. King!

Reproductive Duties

Posted in Society on January 22nd, 2019

Gentlemen, Remember Your Reproductive Duties

With the CDC’s report that American fertility and reproductive rates have fallen to record-lows and, at a Total Fertility Rate (TFR) of 1.76 we’re dangerously below the 2.1 TFR needed to maintain population levels, this is potentially catastrophic for our nation’s and people’s future.

So, Gentlemen – especially my fellow White men – we need to get busy fulfilling our reproductive duties. Hence, this post goes beyond the appreciation of the female form and prurience – though, as we all know, prurience is no oddity in Reflections From A Murky Pond – and is meant as both inspiration and a call to action.

America needs babies! So, gentlemen, we need to get out there and make some… a lot of them. Do it for you country!

A Republican At A Bar

Posted in Humor, Politics, Society on January 19th, 2019

Maintaining a certain sense of humor, both about ourselves and our enemies, both foreign and domestic – especially the domestic ones – is important to the maintenance of Americans’ mental and physical health. After all, laughter both releases stress and clears the minds decks, thereby allowing us to put things into more realistic perspectives.

Certainly better than being bitter and paranoid.

So…A bit of joke for our health and enjoyment:

A Republican is Sitting in a Bar…

A union boss walks in from the factory next door and is about to order a beer when he sees a guy at the far end of the bar wearing a TRUMP Make America Great Again cap, with two beers sitting in front of him.

The union boss doesn’t need to be an Einstein to know that this guy is a Republican, so he shouts over to the bartender so loudly that everyone can hear, “Drinks for everyone in here, bartender…. but not for the ‘Republican’.

Soon after the drinks have been passed out, the Republican gives him a big smile, waves at him then says, “Thank you!” in an equally loud voice.

This infuriates the ‘Union Boss’.

After a few minutes, the union boss once again loudly orders drinks for everyone except the Republican. As before, this doesn’t seem to bother the Republican. He nods and smiles, and again yells, “Thank you!”

A few more minutes pass and the union boss orders another round of drinks for everyone except the Republican.

Frustrated that he can’t seem to get the guy angered, the union boss asks the bartender, “What is wrong with that Republican? I’ve ordered three rounds of drinks for everyone in the bar but him, and all the dummy does is smile and thank me. Is he nuts…?”

“Nope,” replies the bartender. “He owns the place.”

ROFLMAO And that is how a businessman can teach even a Left-Wing Unionist a valuable lesson in both economics and proper behavior. 😉

Webb’s White Privilege

Posted in Society on January 18th, 2019
CNN’s Areva Martin Decries Webb’s White Privilege

As a lot of people already know, CNN’s “Legal Analyst,” Areva Martin recently accused David Webb of being a racist or, at least very much not “woke” while being interviewed on his Sirius XM radio show, “Patriot” while discussing race, job qualifications, and applying for jobs .

I’ve chosen to cross different parts of the media world, done the work so that I’m qualified to be in each one,” Webb, a host on Fox Nation, told Martin in the interview. “I never considered my color the issue; I considered my qualifications the issue.”

To which Martin, a civil rights attorney who co-hosts the syndicated talk show “Face the Truth,” responded: “Well, David, that’s a whole other long conversation about white privilege, the things that you have the privilege of doing, that people of color don’t have the privilege of.”

“How do I have the privilege of white privilege?” Webb asked.

“David, by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege. This whole long conversation, I don’t have time to get into — ”

“Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped,” Webb interrupted. “I’m Black.”

OK! Honestly, that’s just about as funny as things can get. Some professional race-baiting grifter – Martin’s a “Civil Rights” attorney – getting hoist on her own hate-fueled petard is hilarious and always will be so to me. Schadenfreude, it’s real.

Petards Mean Sappers

Funny or not though, Martin’s mistake highlights some of racial problems and problem causers inside America’s borders. We’ve too many like Martin who make a career out of racism and who see everything through the lens of “oppression,” and who – displaying a level hypocrisy well past the border of the absurd – make ignorance- and envy-fueled assumptions about people, e.g., assuming Mr. Webb being White because his opinion was contrary to “Being Black.”

And, of course, to people like Areva Martin and those, such as CNN, who pander to- and enable her sort, “White” equals “Bad.” “White” equals the “Oppressors,” either those seen as active so or merely those who have “benefited” from “Whiteness.”

But Webb Is White

Remember race is a social construct with little to no scientific significance outside of the modern pseudo-sciences of psychology and sociology. Therefor, Mr. Webb’s “Whiteness” or “Blackness” is also just a social construct and social constructs are determined by opinion and bias less than by a specific set of empirical facts

And yes, I make no bones about considering psychology and sociology to be pseudo-sciences. They’re both more of an art than a science and both are plagued by extreme biases.

And, as Mr. Webb is not maintaining the Black Narrative or behaving in a “Black Enough” manner, he’s essentially White. This is because the cultural gatekeepers of Blackness view that as the sin of Respectability Politics, something that they don’t willing tolerate.

Respectability politics is, at its root, the inability to look into the cold dark void of history. For if black people are — as I maintain — no part of the problem, if the problem truly is 100 percent explained by white supremacy, then we are presented with a set of unfortunate facts about our home.

Ta-Nehisi Coates
“Charles Barkley and the Plague of ‘Unintelligent’ Blacks”

And yeah, the Black Enough Blacks and those that make their living off of that particular narrative have names for such people: Uncle Tom, Oreo, Sell-Out, Race Traitor, Graham Cracker, and House Nigger to name the most common ones. But they all mean White or too close in culture and thought to being White.

So, while in one sense, Marin was stupidly and ignorantly wrong, in other ways – the ways that matter to her and her people – she was right.
