"Mistrust those in whom the urge to punish is strong." Friedrich Nietzche

"Any and all non-violent, non-coercive, non-larcenous, consensual adult behavior that does not physically harm other people or their property or directly and immediately endangers same, that does not disturb the peace or create a public nuisance, and that is done in private, especially on private property, is the inalienable right of all adults. In a truly free and liberty-loving society, ruled by a secular government, no laws should be passed to prohibit such behavior. Any laws now existing that are contrary to the above definition of inalienable rights are violations of the rights of adults and should be made null and void." D. M. Mitchell (from The Myth of Inalienable Rights, at: http://dowehaverights.blogspot.com/)

George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin

White on black crime is a big deal in America. Black on white crime is hardly ever reported, at least at the national level. And yet, black on white crime is much higher than white on black crime.

"Almost 1 million white Americans were murdered, robbed, assaulted or raped by black Americans in 1992, compared with about 132,000 blacks who were murdered, robbed, assaulted or raped by whites, according to the same survey.

"Blacks thus committed 7.5 times more violent inter-racial crimes than whites even though the black population is only one-seventh the size of the white population. When these figures are adjusted on a per capita basis, they reveal an extraordinary disparity: blacks are committing more than 50 times the number of violent racial crimes of whites.

"According to the latest annual report on murder by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, most inter-racial murders involve black assailants and white victims, with blacks murdering whites at 18 times the rate that whites murder blacks."http://civilisationis.com/usa/racewar.htm)

But that was probably written by a white man. What does a black man have to say about this subject? Here's what Walter Williams wrote in a Creators article :

"According to a 46-count indictment, suspects Darnell Cobbins, Lemaricus Davidson, George Thomas and Vanessa Coleman, all blacks, are charged with committing rape, including sodomy against Christian and Newsom, both of whom are white. After being raped, Newsom was shot several times and his body was found burned along nearby railroad tracks.


Christian was forced to witness her boyfriend's rape, torture and subsequent murder before she was ultimately raped, tortured and murdered. The police discovered her body inside a large trash can in the kitchen of the home where the murders took place. Before disposing of her body, the murderers poured bleach or some other cleaning agent down her throat in an effort to destroy DNA evidence. Trial dates have been set for next May."

Mr. Willians went on to say:  "According to the 2004 FBI National Crime Victimization Survey, in most instances of interracial crimes, the victim is white and the perpetrator is black. In the case of interracial murder for 2004, where the race of victim and perpetrator is known, more than twice as many whites were murdered by a black than cases of a white murdering a black. The failure of civil rights leaders, people like Jackson and Sharpton, as well as politicians to vocally condemn black-on-white crime — and the relative silence of the news media in reporting it — is not simply a matter of double standards. It's dangerous, for it contributes to a pile of racial kindling awaiting a racial arsonist to set it ablaze. I can't think of better recruitment gifts for America's racists, either white or black."

It is without a doubt that there are many, many good black people. I'm not trying to paint African-Americans as all being evil, obscene people. (To me, obscenity is the violent abuse of other people for no good cause,  but only because someone can do it and wants to do it.)

The latest black on white crime, reported in the news today--and it will be gone and forgotten soon unlike the Trayvon Martin case--is the New Jersey mother of two who was beaten severely by a black man who broke into her house. The beating happened in front of her three-year-old child and recorded on her "nanny cam.". Any man (black or white) who would do such a thing is an obscenity within society. I hope they catch him. Unfortunately, if they do, he probably won't do life in prison, which he deserves.

But the media made a big circus of the George Zimmerman shooting of Trayvon Martin. A white man shot and killed a black man. I believe that Mr. Zimmerman made a gross error. He should not have gotten out of his car. He should have waited for the police. Trayvon Martin would not have attacked a uniformed police officer. To him, George Zimmerman was just another racist honkey who was harassing him.

But where is the media outrage against the above mentioned black on white crime? What about the 13 month old white baby intentionally shot in the face and killed by a black teen during the commission of an attempted robbery? (http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/georgia-mom-weeps-son-murdered-cold-blood-article-1.1297488)

That lasted in the news cycle about two or three days, even on Fox News, then it disappeared. Again, where was the media outrage of a black teen intentionally killing a white baby! A baby, by all that's holy! An innocent little child. That outrage of black on white crime doesn't exist. What would have happened if it had been a white teen murdering a black baby?  Do we expect and accept that blacks will kill whites, young and old, and it's no big deal? Or is it that the political correctness that has a stranglehold on reality will not allow the the news media to show what is really going on in America? What a sad nation we live in.

Can I relate to Trayvon Martin's mother and father's pain at the loss of their son. Of course I can. I lost my son to leukemia when he was only 19 years old. It's not the same as losing a child to a quick, violent death, but the pain of the loss is the same. I would like to hear Trayvon Martin's parents speak out about the baby in Georgia that the black teen murdered with a shot to the face. I would like them to speak out about murder, white on black or black on white, or black on black, that it is a horrible crime and an obscenity. I want them to speak to the mother of that poor little baby in Georgia and tell her how sorry they are for his murder, for her loss.

But they won't. Unfortunately, all they can focus on, it seems, is the loss of their child. A white man killing their black son. Something they seem to thinks is a purely rascist killing. But isn't all the black on white crime rascist also? White people murdered and raped by black men are not given any credence. They don't matter. It is expected... maybe desired. White man's shame for what he did to the blacks under slavery and under the Jim Crow laws after slavery.

But murder is murder, crime is crime, whether it's white on white, white on black, black on white, or black on black. Most murders of black are not committed by whites, but by other blacks.  What a sad nation we live in when reality cannot be openly discussed in the press and on the TV news channels for fear of being politically incorrect.

In the meantime, the George Zimmerman circus is given daily front line news attention. And we all know that Mr. Zimmerman must be one of the most evil people in America.

Obesity, Heart Disease, Cancer, and Diet

The following are a few excerpts from an article entitled Illustrated History of Heart Disease 1825-2015. Click the link to read the whole thing. (The illustrations are in the original article.)

-1825: French lawyer and gourmand Brillant-Savarin publishes The Physiology of Taste, in which he says he has identified the cure for obesity: "More or less rigid abstinence from everything that is starchy or floury."

-1863: William Banting published Letter On Corpulence, Addressed to the Public. Banting had lost 85 pounds on a high fat, carbohydrate-restricted diet. The British Medical Journal and Lancet reported that Banting's diet could be dangerous: "We advise Mr Banting, and everyone of his kind, not to meddle with medical literature again, but be content to mind his own business."

-1910: Butter consumption = 18 pounds per capita. In the year 2000 butter consumption went below 4 pounds. When we were using high quality butter lavishly, mortality from heart disease was below 10 percent. (Infections killed a majority of people; a high percentage of infants and women of child-bearing age died during the birthing process.) Today as we consume our “Country Croak,” the mortality from heart disease is 40 to 45 percent. Both Dr. Andrew Weil and the late Dr. Robert C. Atkins agree: "Eat butter; not margarine, regardless of the claims the manufacturer is making for it!"

-1910: Lard, the rendered fat from pigs raised outdoors, was the #1 cooking fat - enjoying 70 percent of the market. Lard was the best source of Vitamin D and a good source of palmitoleic acid, a monounsaturated anti-microbial fatty acid that kills bacteria and viruses. Today highly processed soybean oil has 70 percent of the market; zero vitamin D. Now the same experts who told us not to eat lard are telling us we are deficient in Vitamin D! (Emphasis mine.)

-1937: Columbia University biochemists David Rittenberg & Rudolph Schoenheimer demonstrated that dietary cholesterol had very little effect on blood cholesterol. Although never refuted, for thirty years, the federal Dietary Guidelines have restricted dietary cholesterol to less than 300 milligrams a day.

-1950: Using a newly invented one-of-a-kind centrifuge, University of California medical scientist John Gofman discovered several fat-like substances circulating in the blood, including LDL and VLDL. At this time - 60 years ago - he reported that total cholesterol (TC) was a "dangerously poor predictor" of heart disease.

-1951: The Practise of Endocrinology, a textbook published by seven prominent British clinicians. The weight loss recommendations were almost identical to Banting's. Foods to be avoided: Bread and everything else made with flour; cereals, including breakfast cereals and milk puddings; potatoes and all other root vegetables; foods containing sugar and all sweets.

-1955: John Gofman reported that carbohydrates elevate VLDL - the lipoprotein that transports blood fats (triglycerides) made in the liver from excess carbohydrates. Gofman wrote, "Restricting carbohydrates would lower VLDL." Excess carbs = elevated triglycerides = more VLDL = increased risk of heart disease. John Peters, Yale School of Medicine, using a new analytical centrifuge, was able to quantify the triglyceride concentration in VLDL, confirming the work of Gofman.

-1970: Margaret Albrink, Peter Kuo, Lars Carlson, and Joseph Goldstein reported that elevated triglycerides (TG) were more common in heart disease patients than cholesterol. They confirmed that the majority of people with heart disease have what Gofman called "Carbohydrate Induced Lipemia."

-1974: Framingham Heart Study (24 years). Men with cholesterol levels below 190 mg/dl were three times more likely to get colon cancer as men with cholesterol over 220 mg/dl. In Framingham, there was a strong association between low cholesterol and premature death. Also, there was no relationship between elevated cholesterol and sudden death.

-1986: The same year the U.S. declared "War on Cholesterol," Japanese physicians warn that low blood cholesterol levels are strongly associated with strokes, the number one cause of death in Japan. As the percentage of fat in the Japanese diet increased, the incidence of deadly strokes declined.

-1988: After 20 years researching carbohydrate metabolism, Gerald Reavan, MD, University of California, announces his discovery of “Syndrome X,” now referred to as Metabolic Syndrome or diabetes-related heart disease. Syndrome X is a cluster of abnormalities, including high blood sugar, high insulin levels, elevated triglycerides, and depressed levels of protective HDL. In his book Syndrome X, Dr. Reaven said the culprit in heart disease is excess sugar and excess easily-digested carbohydrates - not red meat.

There's a lot more. It makes for interesting reading so do click on the link and read all of the article. But, with what I have included above, you should get the point. The low fat, high carbohydrate diet is an obesity-, heart disease-, and cancer-causing disaster.

When we ate more butter, lard, coconut oil, safely collected raw milk, less sugar, soft drinks, candy, white flour*, vegetable oils (polyunsaturated fatty acids, not natural monounsaturates like lard and olive oil) we were a healthier people. If we went back to that type of eating health care costs--yours, personally, and everyone else--could be reduce substantially. Of course, the big agricultural industry, the pharmaceutical industry, and the medical-treating-not-curing industry will fight like crazy to keep you sick and dependent on them.
* In his book, Wheat Belly, Dr. William Davis, Cardiologist, explains how modern wheat is nearly the same as a genetically modified organism (GMO) due the intensive hybridization it has gone through in the last 50 years. He claims--and has proven it clinically--that by avoiding all wheat and products containing wheat, including "healthy whole wheat," we can avoid many of today's diseases. Buy the book.
