More Math: What is seven percent of one point three billion people?

There was a survey, way back in 2008, which “showed”* that 7% of 1.3 billion Muslims are “radicalized.”

Let’s do the math, shall we?

What part of three billion people is seven percent? What is seven percent of one point three billion people? (plain English)

Part over whole, percent over 100. (formula)

The part, X, is unknown, the whole is 100.

Cross multiply with seven percent

.07 x 1300000000  =  X(100)

91,000,000,000  =  X(100)

Divide both sides by 100

91,000,000,000  =  X

Ninety One Million

Seven percent of one point three billion people is ninety one million people.

(Ooops, I forgot to include, “radical.”)

Can Texas Hold the Entire World’s Population?

A guy said: Texas can hold the entire population of the world with every person occupying 1 acre.

I said: That could be verified, easily calculable, simple math.

Let’s assume he meant 1 square acre is allotted to each person.

Texas is 268,580 square miles.

1 mile ==> 5280 feet.

The square footage of 1 square mile ==> 5280 x 4 == 21120 sq ft.

Texas is 268,580 sq mi   X   21120 sq ft == 5,672,409,600 sq ft.

1 acre ==> 43560 sq ft.

How many square acres fit into the state of Texas? 5,672,409,600 / 43560 == 130,221 square acres.

Let’s assume the world population is == 4,000,000,000.

4,000,000,000 – 130,221 == 3,999,869,779.

Not even close. (Click on the boobs)

If one were to ask, what is the meaning of the phrase,”diversity is our greatest strength?”, I have just heard the best answer: “Gonads and melanin.” That’s the phrase Heather Mac Donald spoke and I’ll now use to explain the use of the word “diversity” in present day discourse.

What is “White Privilege”, Part I

This crucial collection will reveal the “intellectual” basis for so-called “white privilege.” It took me less than 10 hours to consider myself well-versed in the subject. I will provide the essential links and concepts. The entire edifice, is in dire need of refutation, if that be possible. This is an attempt to get at the heart of the “white power/structure” justification. (You may need duct tape for your head.)

Let’s begin with the concept of “settler-colonialism.” There is “exploitation colonialism” and “settler colonialism.” The exploitative types may be called “Neo-colonialism,” “classical colonialism,” or “metropole colonialism”. It is asserted that the United States is a result of both exploitative and settler colonialism.

What’s important to understand about settler colonialism is that it is said to be the origin of the contemporary “white power structure;” said “structure” being what whites maintain and perpetuate by their, at the very least, passive participation. The worst is conscious racism. The “unconscious” (or sub-conscious) form is said to be operable no matter what level of awareness one possesses. I do believe I’ve read that.

The concept of a persistent structure is encapsulated by the phrase, “invasion is a structure not an event.” This is taken from an Australian man’s writings (Patrick Wolfe) about Australian settler-colonialism. It has, obviously, been adopted by those who condemn the existence of the United States. We all can say with certainty that Australia and the United States share a similar “invasion/colonization” history. (We share the “cowboy” history, subsequently.)

Before we move on, here is the full context from which the phrase, “invasion is a structure not an event”, as it appears on page 163 of Patrick Wolfe’s book:

The determination ‘settler-colonial state’ is Australian society’s primary
structural characteristic rather than merely a statement about its origins.
The primary object of settler-colonization is the land itself rather than the
surplus value to be derived from mixing native labour with it.¹⁶⁵ Though,
in practice, Indigenous labour was indispensible to Europeans, settler-
colonization is at base a winner-take-all project whose dominant feature is
not exploitation but replacement. The logic of this project, a sustained
institutional tendency to eliminate the Indigenous population, informs a
range of historical practices that might otherwise appear distinct — invasion
is a structure not an event.

(Footnote 165 verbatim: “The different colonial formation obtaining in the Torres Strait will be discussed below.”)

Ok, then. End of Part I

(It gets really good, Wolfe gets into a critique of “relativism.”!)

What to do about Publishing of FALSE Reports? PREMEDITATED or Otherwise?

Malpractice in The Press, Premeditated or otherwise.

1. What is the punishment for publishing a false report and knowing it is false? If a representative republic, a type of democracy, can’t function properly without an ethical, honorable, honest press, then ought there be criminal punishment for publishing a known, false report?

2. What should a consumer of information do when a news source publishes a false report with foreknowledge of the inaccuracy? Boycott and boycott of financial supporters of the organization.

The story about the MAGA-hat-wearing, Catholic kids who were confronted by anti-Trump aggressors is the inspiration for this post:

The Left’s Smirking MAGA Kid Hoax (Frontpagemag)

This kind of thing is a “natural” extension, result, outgrowth of…this kind of thing.

A Google executive sparked a fierce backlash from employees by using the word “family” in a weekly, company-wide presentation, according to internal documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

This is a diminishing and disrespectful way to speak. If you mean “children”, say “children”; we have a perfectly good word for it. “Family friendly” used as a synonym for “kid friendly” means, to me, “you and yours don’t count as a family unless you have children”. And while kids may often be less aware of it, there are kids without families too, you know.

The use of “family” as a synonym for “with children” has a long-standing association with deeply homophobic organizations. This does not mean we should not use the word “family” to refer to families, but it mean we must doggedly insist that family does not imply children.

Even the sense, “suitable for the whole family”, which you might think is unobjectionable, is totally wrong too. It only works if we have advance shared conception of what “the whole family” is, and that is almost always used to mean a household with two adults, of opposite sex, in a romantic/sexual relationship, with two or more of their own children. If you mean that as a synonym for “suitable for all people” stop and notice the extraordinary unlikelihood of such a thought! So “suitable for the whole family” doesn’t mean “all people”, it means “all people in families”, which either means that all those other people aren’t in families, or something even worse. Use the word “family” to mean a loving assemblage of people who may or may not live together and may or may not include people of any particular age. STOP using it to mean “children”. It’s offensive, inappropriate, homophobic, and wrong.

“CNN is fake news”

I’ve used this definition of “fake news”: manufactured content. There might be elements of a news piece that are manufactured. The fake (staged) car crash with fire by NBC, is an example.

When President Trump says, “You are fake news,” to CNN, I think that he means that CNN has reported things that are false. I trust him in that the truth, which he KNOWS, does not comport with the report. He was my hero when he smacked CNN (and BBC) down at press conferences, and gave lesser slaps to the other networks.

We’ve seen a form of fake news in surveys worded to show a particular trend which, presumable, does not exist in fact. Then, the “results” are published as news. I first heard of this, as I’ve described it, on the Rush Limbaugh radio show, many years ago. I don’t have an example.

In an effort to counter such a thing, here is the reason I like President Trump!!! I never thought I would see such a thing. I now believe in unicorns! For an example, go to mm:ss==34:00 to 34:30 in this video. The President was in Britain.

The urgent point is that a republic can not function properly with a biased press–“press” being one of the larger Press.
