A Hundred Percent of Nothing
Creators Syndicate, by Walter E. Williams

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/19/2012 5:43:39 AM

JoAnn Watson, Detroit city council member, said, "Our people in an overwhelming way supported the re-election of this president, and there ought to be a quid pro quo." In other words, President Obama should send the nearly bankrupted city of Detroit millions in taxpayer bailout money. But there´s a painful lesson to be learned from decades of political hustling and counsel by intellectuals and urban experts. In 1960, Detroit´s population was 1.6 million. Blacks were 29 percent, and whites were 70 percent. Today, Detroit´s population has fallen precipitously to 707,000, of which blacks are 84 percent and whites 8 percent.

Comments:
I´m currently reading "Detroit City is the Place to Be", which is both depressing and inspiring. I´m glad I´m not the one trying to fix that town.

Look carefully at Detroit, that is how the USA is going to look in 50 years or less(maybe much less) if we keep electing liberal Democrats. A nation´s most precious possession are those that understand that there is no "free lunch" and vote accordingly. The 2012 election brought us very close the edge.

Detroit is on life support and the only way it can survive will be to become self-reliant. I am not sure they can do that with all of the dependency they rely on.

Six years ago I watched on TV, a meeting in which the city leaders met with some of the concerned citizens of Detroit. When they threw open the floor for discussion/suggestions about how to improve detroit´s situation, the white person who rose to suggest something, was told by the black audience that because he was white, he would not be allowed to speak or suggest anything. They were that blunt. With people like that in the majority, there is no saving that city.

I´m glad he included Newark. Nothing could be more true. Unfortunately, once black people obtain political positions, the community assumes that position will be held by blacks forever. The quality of their work is irrelevant. It becomes a "black" position. Qualified white people need not apply.

Detroit is becoming a breeding ground for terrible things we can not imagine, IMHO. Detroit is a disgrace of the first order. Internet pictures and stories do not do justice to the scope of the devastation in that place. This can be placed at the feet of liberalism and the Democratic Party. They should be so proud.

When I was involved with Hurricane Katrina relief work, I was amazed at how so many of the inner city adults from New Orleans had no noticeable life skills other than an impressive knowledge of how the system of benefits worked. I saw at least one person receive two FEMA letters because she had two different social security numbers - one in her original name and another that her mother applied for when she took her step-father´s last name. I heard a story of a drug addict who offered to sell his young son, along with his social security number, to someone so they could get both the tax credit and the monthly money from the government for him. And then there are the "crazy checks", which are a bonus when you teach your child to go to school and act up so they can be labeled as disabled.

One man when asked when he would be leaving the shelter said, "when you get me a house"! We didn´t really know if he meant FEMA or the church or the Red Cross, but clearly it was not his responsibility to care for himself. The libs have created this enslaved class of people whose only job is to keep them in power and continue to vote for their free stuff.

#4´s comment shows that Black people really are that self delusional. They think that political power will allow them to suspend natural economic law. They are ignorant and foolish and their leaders encourage their insanity for their own enrichment.

People that are willing to work to create products and jobs can leave cities, states, even the Country when they are being abused by myopic politicians. Investment dollars follow the entrepreneurs. It is patently impossible for government to replace the money lost with the loss of a vibrant economy. Business fuels EVERYTHING in the world. Progressive attitudes toward business are moronic. Their attitude toward success, that it is a "community effort", is nuts. Almost every successful venture has one or two people who drives it to succeed. It is the nature of those people, similar to the nature of a great athlete, that allows success. The way to economic success is to encourage such people because their success is enriching for all. Instead, progressives preach envy and resentment of those who succeed. You may as well be jealous of an Olympic athlete. You cannot take their ability from them. All you can, and should do, is celebrate their success.

That is natural law, as much as progressives resent it. They hate it and they cannot change it.

A friend commented that if we divided the country into red and blue zones and moved the populations so that each could go their own way according to political preference that the result would not last. All the people in the blue zone would be trying to move to the red, because the place they created was so spoiled.

I certainly don´t think it will be fifty years before the entire country is like Detroit, unless we take a different course.

In the State of Michigan Detroit is a macro example. There are other examples on a less grand scale that have followed exactly the same course. Benton Harbor, Muskegon, and Flint come to mind. Exactly, the same thing. Blacks took power and it was all downhill from there.

Excellent, excellent, excellent. Sadly, we now have this on a national level...which is exciting to global socialists, IMHO. Remember 4 years ago, there was a book talking about how America would cope with not being a superpower any longer? The globalist money people with a nexus in Chicago are trying to make this happen, IMHO...and succeeding IMHO.

#12, that is the tragic insanity behind liberal positions. They cannot destroy natural law. Their policies don´t work because they try to circumvent it. And when things inevitably collapse it damages the most vulnerable, which is no surprise. But through it all, the natural laws still apply. The most successful nations are those that adhere most to natural laws.

They may as well resent the the sun rising in the morning and decreeing it shall not. It still does.

Mitt Romney immolated himself on the pyre of political truth. But he performed a valuable service in exposing the fact that there IS a 47% subset of Americans who are mere passengers to put it charitably - parasites, moochers, freeloaders are perhaps not politically correct words to use. We now know the greatest adversary to progress and prosperity dwelling right amongst us.

There are some outstanding Replies on this thread. After ploughing through reams of drivebys and lame humor on other threads, this one is a refreshing find.

It is the topic that is saddening because it is so true and spreading elsewhere. When it becomes a "black position" it stays a black position, regardless of consideration of merit. Once positions of power are held by blacks and other liberals, society does not grow better but falls apart.

#21, it would be simpler and less disruptive to exclude every registered democrat or socialist from voting (disenfranchise the lot).
They´ve self-identified as failures, mentally-ill or power-seeking. Then we would have to deal with the libtards in the pubbie party.

this will be the fate of europe and the anglosphere, care of liberal multiculturalism. in time, you will have asian nations, arab nations, african nations, hispanic nations, and mixed race nations which were once white nations, with the possible exception of russia. russia may be the last refuge for the small pockets of white people left at that time. the most fortunate people, aside from rich elites, would be living like the common people of china and india live today.

The idea that the President owes them something is flatly wrong. The President is President of the entire country. Detroit supported him for the "good" of the whole country. Any quid pro quo should be for the good of the whole country - not just Detroit. If they want politicians that work only for Detroit then that would be the Congressmen from the Detroit district. Even MI Senators are there only to represent their state.

In order for Detroit to get something from the President it would have to be considered good for the whole country - or from the Senator, good for the whole state. We have a President and a Democrat party that is certainly willing to bend the rules and pretend that what they do for Detroit is for the good of the whole country. But when Detroit blatantly asks for that bending it reveals the scheme.

The fact that Dr. Williams makes so much common sense will be lost on Detroit´s voters. It doesn´t matter that he is right. What matters is hurting Whitey -- at any cost. That Detroit´s blacks are hurt worse in the process will never register with them until they get educated about economics.

Interesting information in here if you just do the math:

1960, white population 1,120,000
Now, white population 56,560

1960, black population, 464,000
Now, black population, 593,880

1960, Detroit 70% white
Now, Detroit 8% white

1960, Detroit 29% black (30% non-white)
Now, Detroit 84% black (92% non-white)

Since 1960, 1,063,440 white people have left Detroit.

Since 1960, 129,880 NEW black residents have moved INTO Detroit.

So, since 1990, as jobs evaporated and the population of Detroit decreased by 56%, the black population of Detroit actually INCREASED by 28%, and 95% of white residents have left.

Good feelings of accomplishment come from work. Too bad the small children have no role models in the family to achieve to. Most people want to do as good as their brother, father, and cousins. When that is a decade of welfare it leaves nothing but the system to know or achieve to. We need to quit paying people to have babies. You should show some responsibility like saving money before you have a child. This would eventually help. Instead having a child is a paycheck not a responsibility. I pity those that have not experienced the good feeling that work and accomplishment brings.

All one has to do is to look at Africa. Pick any country. Blacks have not proven adept at governing. Anything governed by them proves it. Yet, instead of electing someone such as Dr. Williams or Dr. Sowell, or perhaps even better some young black child striving to BE LIKE those two incredibly intelligent, wise, kindly men....those two men are told they are not really black, or other horrid things. (sorry for the run-on sentence). We have been in Africa, and it is very sad. And...thus goes our country

Re#38. I made that observation myself a number of years ago. However, to actually speak it makes you a racist, by today´s standards. Frankly, name ANY country or large city completely controlled for any length of time by the same group of people, and I will show you a government steeped in corruption and the governed to be basket cases.

Even Atlanta, while growing, has a very corrupt local government.

If we suddenly divided the country into black and white sections with a proportionate division of total wealth, who would soon be beating whose doors down to get in?

Just look back to the fifties and earlier when the South had segregation laws. Who was wanting to get into whose neighborhoods, country clubs and restaurants? When blacks learn to produce and build independently, their lot in life will improve.

One thing they´re really good at is hustling. Too bad so many of them they don´t put that talent to honest work.

And I say this working with plenty of intelligent, hard-working, accomplished people whose skin color just happens to be darker than mine. In that case Who Cares ??? There skin color is irrelevant.

The north side neighbor in Chicago where my folks were raised was predominately jewish after the war years and into the 1970s. When I drove through the old neighbors last month, I was shocked to see that it is now mostly a muslim enclave and the condition of the area was terrible. All of it is the result of liberal dim policy and thought control.

A Tale of Two Letters: Why the
Peace Process Went Poof
Commentary Magazine, by Rich Richman    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/13/2014 5:46:11 PM     Post Reply
Last week Zbigniew Brzezinski, joined by five other foreign-policy experts from the past, issued an open letter entitled “Stand Firm, John Kerry,” calling for “clarity” on “the critical moral and political issues” in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The letter castigated Israeli settlements and proposed “halting the diplomatic process” to “help stop this activity.” At “Pressure Points,” Elliott Abrams dismantled the letter, noting that, among other things, it ignored history. As it happens, tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of one of the more important items of history the Brzezinski group ignored: the April 14, 2004 letter from President George W. Bush to Prime

Nevada GOP removes social issues from platform,

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Generally, when we hear stories about the federal government ripping off the businessman, we tend to think of tales of tax increases or burdensome regulations. But a different type of story crosses our desk this weekend, as a solar power consortium – who already received a quarter billion in grants and tax incentives – takes Uncle Sam to the courthouse because they feel they should have gotten millions more. Federal investigators will spend the next year going through the books of two solar-energy companies tied to billionaire Elon Musk in an effort to show the businesses overvalued sales contracts in

EARLIER this year, a column by a Harvard undergraduate named Sandra Y. L. Korn briefly achieved escape velocity from the Ivy League bubble, thanks to its daring view of how universities should approach academic freedom. Korn proposed that such freedom was dated and destructive, and that a doctrine of “academic justice” should prevail instead. No more, she wrote, should Harvard permit its faculty to engage in “research promoting or justifying oppression” or produce work tainted by “racism, sexism, and heterosexism.” Instead, academic culture should conform to left-wing ideas of the good, beautiful and true, and decline as a matter of

There are musicians as obscure as Wiley and Thomas, and musicians as great, but in none does the Venn diagram of greatness and lostness reveal such vast and bewildering co-extent.

There’s something sinister on the airwaves. It’s sloppy, and it’s cynical, but sinister all the same, and it’s race-hate spewing from the absolute top of the Democratic Party. On Wednesday afternoon, Attorney General Eric Holder threw out some thinly veiled race-hate, telling an audience that criticism of his contempt for Congress was “unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity” that no other “attorney general has ever had to deal with.” ["Black vote," check.] That same day, Politico published an interview where House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi more openly stoked race-hate, saying conservative opposition to amnesty “has a scent of Japanese internment.” ["Asian vote," check.] Later that

White House to send Biden to Kiev

WASHINGTON - The White House said on Saturday that Vice President Joe Biden would travel to Kiev this month to show support for the Ukrainian government as U.S. officials expressed new concern over "violence and sabotage" by militants it said were apparently supported by Russia in eastern Ukraine. Biden, set to travel to Kiev on April 22, will become the most senior U.S. official to visit the country since the crisis began there.

North Carolina answers Democrats’

It’s an article of the faith of the Democrats that voter fraud is nothing to worry about because it never happens. Kim Strach, the North Carolina director of elections, has living proof — and some dead proof — otherwise. She has identified 35,750 persons who voted in North Carolina sharing a name, birth date and Social Security number with someone who voted in another state in 2012. Another 81 North Carolinians voted after they died. Ghosts have no constitutional rights, not yet, but Barack Obama and the Democrats think rigor mortis need not keep voters from practicing good citizenship. President Obama nevertheless

ABC Apologizes for Story That Connected

ABC News Vice President Jeffrey Schneider has apologized for a story on his network that connected a CEO who supports traditional marriage to the Westboro Baptist Church and their offensive "God hates f**s" signs. Mr. Schneider contacted the Media Research Center on Thursday after our social media department requested members call and complain about the comparison. Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich was ousted earlier this month when it was revealed that he donated $1000 in 2008 to Proposition 8. As Good Morning America reporter Linzie Janis explained the story on April 4, footage of the completely unrelated Westboro protesters holding "soldiers died

For Attorney General Eric Holder,
Justice is for Democrats only

A veteran Justice Department lawyer says that Attorney General Eric Holder has politicized the department in a way he hadn’t seen before. In short, “Holder is the worst person to hold the position of attorney general since the disgraced John Mitchell.” Now in his sixth year as attorney general, Holder has increasingly tilted the department in an ideological direction. It’s one thing to emphasize President Obama’s legal priorities. It’s quite another to decide not to enforce certain federal laws — such as the ban on marijuana — or urge state attorney generals to refuse to defend local laws on same-sex

Justice Stevens and Flexible History

Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens had an op-ed piece in the Washington Post a couple of days ago that still has my brain doing backflips. He claims that, “Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the wisdom of such rules and to evaluate the costs and benefits that rule changes can be expected to produce.” Stevens certainly did not believe this when he signed onto decisions overturning Texas’s sodomy law, or when arguing that state laws limiting abortion were unconstitutional, or when striking down Louisiana’s death penalty for raping a child (this is

Students are fed up with the meager portion sizes and bland taste of Michelle Obama-mandated school lunches. They’ve stunned their parents and the rest of America with pictures like this:(Snip for photos and tweets)Now, some Texas teens are taking it a step further. The students, who are part of their high school’s Turning Point USA chapter, are launching a #LunchMovement with one simple message: “No More, Mrs. Obama.” The Healthy, Hunger-free Kids Act has been in effect for a few years now. Yet, it seems to have done just the opposite of its stated intent. Kids aren’t getting enough to eat

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water. Cliven Bundy and his

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
