I am a scientist, living in a beautiful little town that is home to a fine university with a good medical school and a football program that teeters toward excellence. These two programs have many traits in common and some marked differences. Together, they make a useful paradigm to explore and understand two unfolding events, one of which is tragic and the other almost comical. The football program seeks and recruits the best players from the best high school programs.

The NFL is holding that Blacks have lower IQ than whites, so Black ex-players deserve lower compensation for brain injuries. The AMA denies racial differences in IQ, and holds that all observed racial differences "are socio-structural in nature and, often, rely on discredited and racist ideas about biological differences between racial groups." They can't both be right! Pitting the AMA against the NFL will be the super bowl of racism.

FYI - half a century ago, a physician had to be a member of AMA to have admitting privileges at a hospital. Today, that is no longer the case, and membership in the AMA, the last time I looked, was 30 per cent of all MDs. The modern day AMA is a political organization..

I can't imagine two organized groups that are better at protecting their own interests than the AMA and Blacks. (AARP was a historic contender but sold out under Obama.) While the ABA floods the market with more and more unskilled law grads, the AMA keeps a death grip on opening teaching hospitals and creating new doctors. While law school graduation speeches focus on senior lawyers and judges telling you to give your work away for free, the AMA has managed to make sure it's bills get paid by the federal government. While Whites everywhere are expected to go to the back of the bus and give up any place in academia, media, and entertainment, Blacks say "pay up." What a treat to see these two groups in diametric opposition of interests.

Saying blacks are good basketball players is a micro aggression. It (is taken to) mean they are poor at medicine, banking, law, network design or whatever. And if you say they are good at athletics because of their genes (an undeniable fact) the insult is even greater.

A great read. But spotting a team of med school students 100 points wouldn't come close to enough even though quite a number of my classmates were athletes in their own right. I would skew the score the wrong way - by more than 100 myself.

Quite frankly, I wouldn’t mind seeing the demise of both the NFL and the AMA. At this point, the best medical advice I could offer to anyone is to make sure that your doctors are over the age of 40. There’s less chance that he/she was an affirmative action place holder.

Bogus comparison. The NFL is entertainment and people can choose to support or not. Medicine is a service that people can choose or not. One has competition (other forms of entertainment). Medicine is a legal monopoly (try practicing medicine in any state of the Union without a license). The market will dictate what the NFL does to compete in the entertainment business. However the market has no affect on medicine. Because medicine is a monopoly, regulations are such that a high standard for those few that are licensed are in place to insure quality of care, not equity of care. When are sitting on couch channel surfing you can choose to watch the NFL or not. But when you are lying on a gurney in a big city ED after 'peaceful' BLM or Antifa 'protesters' have beaten you to within an inch of life, will your only though be when the ED doctor arrives is whether or not he had a black, lesbian and transgender woman as lab partners?

The NFL believes Blacks are uniformly less intelligent than Whites, and the NFL kneels for the National Anthem because America is racist. Interesting.

Newsmax released an article this week that gives voice to further distrust of America’s once-premiere law enforcement agency. The column was based on a series of questions and concerns presented by Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL) regarding the still murky details around the January 6th storming of the Capitol building. Two questions lobbed at the FBI are both haunting and disheartening: “What did the FBI know? And when did they know it?” The fact that the agency responsible for investigating the lawlessness of that date is itself under scrutiny is alarming.

Black Lives Matter is disintegrating into squabbling over money, even though it won’t frankly admit the base motivation behind the fights that have erupted and escalated yesterday. Democrats always project their own plans and values onto their enemies. So when Rep. Ilhan Omar tweeted, “it’s all about the Benjamins, baby” intending to allege that “Israel’s allies in American politics were motivated by money rather than principle,” she inadvertently exposed the real motivations of many of her major allies.

The corrupt DOJ and its FBI totally ignored the flood of election crimes in the 2020 election. So it’s no surprise that now the corrupt AG decides to threaten any person who is involved in election audits to prevent them from looking into the election crimes and fraud that were committed. The DOJ totally ignored election crimes in the 2020 election. Everywhere we turned there were crimes and corruption at every level in the process but they were ignored by our Mainstream Media, DOJ, and its FBI, and any mention of the election crimes were banned by Big Tech.

That “President” Biden is an unmitigated disaster as our chief executive is so painfully apparent to everyone that it hardly seems necessary to point it out. Nonetheless, just briefly consider: His policies -- anti-energy, anti-business, anti-military, anti-America First -- have wrecked the economy, driven gas to over $3.00/gallon, given us the absolute worst illegal immigration crisis in our history and bankrupted the country. In a warped way, it’s kind of impressive that he’s done that in only a bit over four months.

In an interview with Anderson Cooper that aired Monday on CNN, Barack Obama showed once again how well he has mastered the art of sanctimony. "You would think with all the public policy debates that are taking place right now that the Republican Party would be engaged in a significant debate about how are we going to deal with the economy and what are we going to do about climate change?" Obama said to Cooper. He added, "Lo and behold, the single most important issue to them apparently right now is Critical Race Theory. Who knew that that was the threat to our republic?"

The great progressive dream is to dispense with rule by us mere citizens in favor of a government staffed by technocratic, disinterested experts who selflessly apply the principles of science (social science and real science) to create a better, more efficient, effective, and impactful society. Of course, the progressive advocates of expertocracy assume that those experts will share their coastal, urban and blue perspectives, mores, and values – funny how that works. And it has been working, for them at least.
Schumer's Confusion 13 replies

U.S. Senate Majority Leader, Mr. Chuck Schumer, portrays himself as an unrelenting warrior for democracy and the champion of the oppressed. But in his narrow perspective, in which maintaining his and his party’s political power appears as an overriding value that trumps all other values, he does not seem to realize that he confuses things that the majority of the American people do not. Would someone, please, explain to him that cheating on behalf of the oppressed has virtually nothing to do with democracy and that a lack of ability or will to succeed in a merit-based society does not automatically make one an oppressed person?

I’m not the first person to note that whatever Democrats accuse their opponents of doing, it is they, in fact, who are doing it. If you are puzzled why the Biden Administration scotched the Keystone Pipeline but gave a thumbs up on the Russian Nord Stream 2 pipeline to Germany, perhaps this explanation will help. Under the banner of “green energy” to control emissions. Germany began shutting down the cleanest emitting power stations: nuclear. In 2000, nuclear had a 29.5 percent share of its power generation mix. In 2020 that share dropped to 11.4 percent and next year every one of its nuclear plants is scheduled to be shut down.

The election of 2020 is going to lay bare the dereliction of the Supreme Court for all to see. The COVD-19 pandemic gave numerous state election officials an excuse to implement far-reaching changes to our election processes. Those changes obviously made our systems vulnerable to fraud. States implemented massive mail-in balloting at the same time they relaxed ballot security and voter identification. They even extended the voting periods -- to give the criminals more time to commit their fraud. All these changes were unconstitutional. (snip) The Supreme Court declined to get involved.

The Confederate battle flag, which was crafted as a symbol of opposition to the abolishment of slavery, is just recently tired. We don’t see it much anymore. However, on the 6th, when the stormers rained on the nation’s most precious hut, waving Old Glory — the memo was received: the American flag is its replacement. President Biden, Madame Harris and members of Congress: the American flag has been hijacked as code for a specific belief. God bless those believers, they can have it. Like the Confederate, it is tattered, dated, divisive, and incorrect. It no longer represents democracy and freedom. It no longer represents ALL of us. It’s not fair

U.S. Catholic bishops overwhelmingly approved the drafting of a “teaching document” that many of them hope will rebuke Catholic politicians, including President Joe Biden, for receiving Communion despite their support for abortion rights. The decision, vehemently opposed by a minority of bishops, came despite appeals from the Vatican for a more cautious and collegial approach to the divisive issue. And it raises questions of how closely the bishops will be able to cooperate with the Biden administration on issues such as immigration and racial injustice. The result of the vote — 168 in favor and 55 against — was announced Friday
