As robots take over our menial and less menial jobs, what will we do with the people who have nothing to do? You can bet the controllers are thinking about it.
A second crucial question: What will we do with people who have nothing to do? This has been a hidden problem for a long time, solved to date by child-labor laws, compulsory attendance in high school, the growth of universities as holding tanks, welfare populations, and vast bureaucracies of people who pretend to be employed. Few of these do anything productive, but are supported and kept off the job market by the rest of us. But there are limits to the capacity of Starbuck’s to soak up college graduates. (The economic fate of America may depend on our consumption of overpriced coffee.)

Simon at clueforum.info has a post that discusses the “Jews are superior by birth” myth.
I contend that Jews, to survive, HAD to be really smart to survive in a hostile world.
I contend that Atlanticist-backed Hitler was manipulated (or ordered) to expel the Jews from Germany simply to destabilize Germany by removing its intellectuals and cultural leaders.
I contend its 95% nurture, and only 5% nature, that determines a human’s success in life.
Clearly, the Jews, who are no longer threatened, are lapsing into the great melting pot of society and losing their intellectual edge.
Bring on the Asians, as I posted here.
From the persuasive mind of Scott – who is such a good writer.
1. Roll down your window upon stopping and stick both hands out the window, palms up, waiting for the police officer. That’s as clear a surrender as you can get. And importantly, it is easier to remember this move than the steering wheel hand-placement mentioned above. You have a different visual memory for sticking both hands out the window (which is unusual) compared to putting both hands on the steering wheel, which is closer to normal behavior.2. Your first utterances to the police officer should include the words “officer” and “safety.” Example: Good morning, Officer. Let’s be safe today. Tell me what you need me to do.

Tough words on racial integration from the world’s most famous boxer.

Scott’s right on this one. Why do you think auto recalls actually help business?
By analogy, restaurant owners know that the most loyal customers are the ones who had a complaint that got resolved to their satisfaction. People are usually more invested in the fix than the complaint. If a restaurant gets the fix right, the customer bonds for life. Trump got it wrong with abortion penalties, but his fix was swift and unambiguous. Voters notice the fix. And they bond to it.
What a great idea for abortion or assisted suicide.
As a general principle, we all might be better off if our government always took the side of maximizing human life while leaving room for private citizens to make tough choices as needed. A law without penalties does that.

Break away from the illusion and get real. Fantastic video.
I hope this mi6 – Guardian article is fear porn fiction. Even if it is, it has a subconscious effect.
Rising deaths among white middle-aged Americans could exceed Aids toll in US
Alarming trend among less-educated 45- to 54-year-olds largely thought to be a result of more suicides and the misuse of drugs and alcohol
Religions, countries, ethnicities are all meant to keep people divided. I’m ok with people identifying themselves in different ways. It’s when they exclude others that things can become dicey in a politically correct world.
Substitute “White” for “Jewish” in the following paragraph and see how long the camp would last in this PC world.
Organizers of a Jewish summer camp are defending their decision? to bar a non-Jewish boy from returning for a second summer after campers’ parents said “it is important for the camp to remain Jewish” and focused on “Jewish identity” and “Jewish pride.”
