The California Crises That Everyone Saw Coming

The California crises that everyone say coming

We have spoken about the horrors of living in the beautiful but horrid liberal cesspool known as California. This California crises, this housing crises, is one everyone has seen coming for decades.   Keep in mind this is a state that made it just a misdemeanor to spread AIDS.  Read our article on everything wrong with California.  California has extreme environmentalists that fight to block even the most environmentally sensitive housing to meet the State’s needs not to mention a really nasty case of nimbyism.

Article from Fox News

For all of its claims of being an economic paradise, California is a failure when it comes to housing.

Not just low-income, affordable housing, but middle-income, working-class housing for teachers, firemen and long-time residents hoping to live anywhere near work.

“California has a housing crisis. We can’t provide housing to our citizens,” said Rita Brandin, with San Diego developer Newland Communities. “In Georgia, Texas and Florida, it can take a year and a half from concept to permits. In California, just the process from concept to approvals, is five years – that does not include the environmental lawsuits faced by 90 percent of projects.”

Numbers tell the story of California’s housing crisis.

* 75 percent of Southern Californians can’t afford to buy a home, according to the state realtors association.

* 16 of the 25 least affordable communities in the US are in California, according to 24/7 Wall Street.

* Officials this year declared a homeless emergency in San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego and Orange counties.

* 56 percent of state voters say they may have to move because of a lack of affordable housing. One in four say they will relocate out of state, according to University of California Berkeley’s Institute of Governmental Studies.

* A median price home in the Golden State is $561,000, according to the realtors association. A household would need to earn $115,000 a year to reasonably afford a home at that price, assuming a 20 percent down payment. Yet, two thirds of Californians earns less $80,000, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

* The household income needed to afford a median-priced home in the Silicon Valley town of Palo Alto is $450,000.

* In San Francisco, a median priced home is $1.5 million, according to the Paragon Real Estate Group.

* Home prices in California are twice the national average, and 70 percent can’t afford to buy a home, according to state figures.

* Median household income in L.A. is $64,000. That’s half what is necessary to buy a home.

*1 in 10 residents are considering leaving because they can’t afford a place to live, according to a state legislative study, while US Census figures show 2 million residents, 25 and older, have already left the state since 2010.

* In 2016, 30 percent of California tenants put more than 50 percent of their income toward rent and utilities, according to the California Budget & Policy Center. Economists consider 30 percent the limit.

* California needs to double the number of homes built each year to keep prices from rising faster than the national average, according to the Legislative Analyst’s Office.

“The biggest tragedy of California is we have stopped building houses for the middle class,” said Borre Winkle with the Building Industry Association of San Diego. “Think of California’s housing market as a martini class. We’re building some affordable housing at the low end. Absolutely nothing in the middle and the top end is high-income housing, which subsidizes low-income housing. So that is a broken system.”

In 2016, the cities of Houston and Dallas built more homes, 63,000, than the entire Golden State, which built 50,000, according to US Census Bureau figures.

“Supply and demands works,” said USC real estate professor Richard Green. “People want to be here and we’re not accommodating them with new housing and so the cost of the housing goes up.”

The mansion, featuring 123 rooms, has been sold to 22-year-old British heiress Petra Ecclestone, according to published reports on June 14, 2011. The home, in the Holmby Hills section of Los Angeles, was the highest priced piece of real estate in the U.S., listed for $150 million. The final selling price for the estate, on the market since March 2009, has not been disclosed. REUTERS/Reuters TV (UNITED STATES - Tags: ENTERTAINMENT BUSINESS) FOR EDITORIAL USE ONLY.

The lack of housing is a statewide problem for which many share the blame. Current residents adamantly oppose any new project because it will aggravate traffic, already the worst in the nation. Environmentalists oppose growth because most new projects require a lot of land, which they feel contributes to sprawl. They favor infill projects of higher density, just the sort existing residents oppose.

Politicians are caught in the middle. They know businesses needs a growing population to meet labor needs, but are afraid to vote for new housing for fear of being voted out of office.

“Our long-term growth and prosperity is absolutely and fundamentally dependent upon housing that folks can afford,” said Elizabeth Hansburg, a young mother who started a “Yes in My Backyard,” or YIMBY chapter in Orange County. “If we want Orange County to be prosperous in the future, we have to have housing that people can afford to live in.”

YIMBY members show up at city council and planning commission meetings and advocate for more housing. They counter the typical “Not in My Backyard” groups that typically kill projects by exerting political influence.

“I just thought to myself, there is no one providing a counter argument to this. All the elected officials are hearing is no we don’t want this,” Hansburg said. “And I thought we needed to balance that conversation in the public sphere. Somebody needed to be there saying: ‘Yes we do want this.’ We do have a housing shortage.”

According to a study commissioned by the Building Industry Association at Point Loma Nazarene University, up to 40 percent of the cost of a new home is attributable to the 45 regulatory agencies that govern home building in California.

“California is a state that just absolutely loves regulations. And the problem of housing in California is one of regulatory overreach,” Winkel said. “In San Diego, 40 cents on the dollar of production of housing goes to regulations alone. It’s not uncommon to have $100,000 in impact fees on a single-family house and try to sell a house with that type of cost burden.”

The Newland Sierra project near San Diego is still trying to build a mixed-use community with 2,100 new units on a parcel of 1,900 acres. But builders say they are only developing 775 acres, leaving 61 percent open space.

Yet, environmentalists and local opposition are already threatening to sue, or gather signatures to take the project to a vote.

“NIMBYism has now become a tool for special interests to stop projects,” Brandin said. “There’s an anti-growth attitude that really creates this roadblock to providing homes and that is creating a disparity. We are leaving out our working class who have to commute hours, sometimes two hours beyond our borders, to work in our city.”

A similar, albeit larger project in Los Angeles fought environmental lawsuits for 20 years.

“Very often these lawsuits are not won, but it extends the time it takes to do the development and in development time really is money,” Green said. “The thing about environmental groups is they just don’t trust developers, period. We’re one of the fastest-growing states in the country when it comes to jobs and we’re not building any housing. California has the second lowest rate of homeownership in the country. Only Hawaii is lower.”

Conservatives Must Support Roy Moore!

Support Roy Moore

This is important if I have any readers in Alabama I need you go out there tomorrow and vote for Judge Roy Moore for US Senate

I’m an openly gay black man and I support Roy Moore!  Why?

Roy Moore is a solid economic freedom fighter

Lower taxes, smaller government, and less spending [emphasis mine] will reduce the deficit and enable economic growth and a truly “stimulated” economy.

I believe in the reduction of taxes at all levels, and a need to reform the tax system by studying and implementing a “flat tax” or a “fair tax,” which is a tax on goods and services purchased instead of a tax on income.

To paraphrase an old saying, the only two things in life that are certain are death and taxes, but the truth is we are being taxed to death while our businesses are failing and our economy continues to suffer.Judge Moore’s Position on National Issues

He believes in enforcement of our immigration laws

I’m am American living in the Philippines. I gotta tell you even a poor corrupt country like the Philippines still manages to do something better than the US. It enforces it’s immigration laws. In the PH you can be deported just for disrespecting a Filipino. They say its a matter of national dignity and pride. It doesn’t matter whether you’re ‘contributing to the Philippine economy’.



Not so in the US we let illegal immigrants come here and make demands on us! Think I’m exaggerating? Watch illegal immigrants shout at the house democratic leader Nancy Pelosi  and calling her a liar.

Yes they’ve gotten so arrogant that they think they can come here illegally and then literally shout at our congress members and demand that we cater to them! Obviously I’m not fan of Nancy Pelosi but that level of disrespect from an immigrant legal or illegal should never be tolerated! If a group of Americans had shouted at Philippine senator Leila de Lima, for example, they would be deported immediately. These people need to go. DACA or no DACA.

What’s so funny about liberals is if I went to another country and demanded that they cater to me and wanted to hold its elected officials ‘accountable’ they would call me an ‘arrogant american’ and scold me for not respecting their culture or their laws. Yet they support and encourage those that don’t respect our culture or our laws.

Now lets talk about these accusations against judge Moore.

First and foremost they are accusations and nothing more. Nothing has been proven against Moore. You just have accusations from 40 years ago that some establishment republicans who didn’t want him around in the first place and of course the liberals and their mainstream media friends say they believe.

What happened to innocent until proven guilty?

Feminists have gotten so powerful in this nation that a woman simply ‘accusing’ a man of sexual misconduct is enough to end his career. The liberals will say ‘oh well they are credible accusations’. But uh what is credible? A grope doesn’t leave behind much evidence. The only thing that makes them ‘credible’ seems to be whether its possible that it could’ve happened or not. Maybe they were in the same place at the same time?

These accusations at best show that a man made some mistakes 40 years ago. Lets not forget that one of the accusers admitted to modifying the yearbook that Moore supposedly signed. Even if she hadn’t all it proves is that he signed a year book! Big whoop!

This goes waaayy beyond Roy Moore

Not voting for Roy Moore means we’d have another democrat in the Senate. Think about that means for a second. That’s one vote closer to the horrible policies of the Obama years. We’re talking Obamacare x2 people! Who knows maybe if the trend continues they might even be able to push through something as abominable as single payer socialized medicine. They’re making no bones that that’s what they want.

They want the end of the United States as we know it. They want a country where the PC police can literally arrest you if they get ‘triggered’ . Don’t believe me? Look at what they’ve done on facebook, twitter, and even quora to some extent. We all know conservatives are routinely censored on all of these sites. Better yet lets look at Europe. In the Netherlands ‘hate speech’ is a crime

Doug Jones is a horrible man because he is yet another agent for socialism and communism.

I implore to all Alabama voters to think about your country and think about the impact of having another Clinton crony in the US Senate.

The Franken and Conyers Disparity Displays Liberals Racism

John Conyers must go but Al Franken Gets to Stay?

House majority leader has called for Congressmen John Conyers to step down amid allegations of sexual harassment but Al Franken faces only a ethics investigation designed to sweep his own problems under the rug until the news cycle moves on.

John Conyers- a lifetime of public service

John  James Conyers fought for our country in the Korean war, a civil rights activist, and congressional aide. He was elected to congress in 1964 and co-founded the congressional black caucus, sponsored the bill to make Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday a national holiday and is one of the longest serving members of congress and longest Black serving member.

Al Franken- a Comedian

Al Franken’s accomplishments include being a comedian and using his dead friend’s name to get a senate seat.

Libeals-Franken needs soul searching Conyers must die

Senator Claire McKCaskill has said that Mr. Franken “needs to do some soul searching,” and has supported the aformentioned ‘ethics’ investigation. Not one Senate democrat has called for Franken to resign. The house minority (ironically titled)  leader Nancy Pelosi has called for Franken to say he’s ‘sorry’ and promises not to do it again that would be enough.

Conyers has faced a different song. Nancy Pelosi last week publicly called for Conyers resignation saying bluntly ‘he should go’.  House Democratic caucus chairmen Joe Crownley echoed those sentiments

Yesterday, I said Congressman Conyers should do the right thing for the country, the institution, and, most importantly, the woman involved,” he said. “The right thing is for Congressman Conyers to resign. Reunters

House minority whip Steny Hoyer has also called for his walking papers.

As I have said, the allegations against Rep. Conyers are serious and credible. As we continue to hear more, I think it is appropriate for him to resign,” Hoyer tweeted. Reunters

Location! location! location! Say dems

The democrats have responded that the difference is that the alleged improprieties occurred while Conyers was on the clock and had power over his staffers while Franken did his acts while working as a comedian. Wtf?!  This is as thin of a smoke screen as it gets. If true both men had a great deal of power over their alleged victims.   Leanne Tweeden has repeatedly said that she was told ‘you’ll never work in this town again’ if she came forward with Al Franken’s gross misdeeds. Conyers on the other hand, yes had the power to fire a squealing staffer, but most congressional staffers are only there temporarily anyway. Getting fired from a congressional office while a setback isn’t a career ender. Tweeden’s career and years of work could’ve all gone down the drain due to Franken’s influence.

Let us not forget the creepy as heck photo Tweeden has documenting Franken’s disgusting actions.



Let us also not forget that all Conyers has against him are alligations while Franken has admitted he’s a pervert and there’s a photograph documenting his misdeeds. Not to mention other women have come forward with credible allegations against Franken as well.

Conyers has noticed as well

The disparity has not been overlooked by Conyers’s attorney, Arnold Reed, has asserted his client’s innocence and pointed out that his client is not being treated equally. To make his point, he highlighted the recent news surrounding another congressmen’s settlement.

“I haven’t heard as much as a peep from Washington as to whether this person needs to step down — not even as much as a peep,” Reed told reporters gathered outside of Conyers’s home in Detroit. “All that we’re saying here is we’re going to ensure that this is a fair process.”

Arnold stopped short of saying there’s a racial factor at play, but suggested Conyers is nonetheless being treated differently.

“I didn’t mention the word racial. … What I’m telling you is this: There is a lot of pressure that has come to bear from some Democrats on the congressman. In fact, they’ve talked about expulsion,” he said.

“But the congressman is not going to be pressured by any of that.”

Both should go or both should stay

This disparity highlights why  Blacks must not be complicit that the democrats or white liberals are our friends. When it came down to it they chose to stick up for a white comedian over a Black man who not only put his life on the line for his country but has decades of public service.  If the allegations are proven to be true they should both resign. Franken has all but admitted what he did and there’s a damning photograph. Conyers is accused and nothing more.

To any white democrats reading this know that this disparity will not go unnoticed.

Blacks the First to Go with Minimum Wage Hikes

Why Blacks, Latinos, and Gays Should be Conservatives

 

 

Liberals New Slogan: Foreigners First

This is something that conservatives have been saying a long time and it gets brushed off as a simple disagreement. We all know liberals love to put foreigners first over their fellow Americans. We also know their common retort to this criticism: “no we love America that’s why we bitch so much about it”. That however is simply a cop out and I intend to prove with this article that for liberals their mantra truly is foreigners first.

Actions speak louder than words

While liberals say they love America and their fellow Americans the actions say that foreigners should come first.

Other cultures & countries over ours

Liberals always talk about respecting the cultures and customs of others while defending those that don’t respect ours. Liberals love to defend illegal immigrants even though by their very nature they disrespected our culture and our laws by coming here without permission. You know? Illegally!  So my question is where is the sympathy for Americans that get deported from other countries?  Mexico deports over 2000 Americans every year.

The reasons behind the expulsions are related to administrative misdeeds,” Monica Mora, of Mexico’s National Council of Science and Technology which collects the data, told FNL. “Principally tourists with expired visas, and those who remain without a residence permit or who are surprised while violating in some way the laws in Mexico. Fox News

The average liberals response is “that’s what they get for not respecting their laws and culture”. While I have no sympathy for criminals regardless of nationality the stark contrast in sympathies is very telling.

In the Philippines its worse. An American can be deported for nothing more than being rude to a Filipino or being an ‘undesirable alien’.

An overstaying and undocumented American faces deportation amid numerous complaints of rowdy behavior by residents and business owners in Ermita, Manila, the Bureau of Immigration (BI) said.

Morente said [The American], who is being held at the BI ward facility in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City, will be deported for being “undesirable, overstaying and undocumented” alien. Inquierer.net

There doesn’t appear to be much sympathy for him either. But lets contrast that with this illegal Filipino in America who was busted for selling meth.

A Hawaii [father] and green card holder with a past drug conviction is fighting a deportation to the Philippines, saying it would mean almost certain death under Rodrigo Duterte’s brutal anti-drug campaign….

“I’ve made mistakes, but I believe people should get a second chance,” Carino said. “Some people might say that I deserve to go back to my country, but I did change. I do things for my community, I work hard to provide for my family, and I don’t want to lose them.” The Guardian

If you read the article you see nothing but sympathy for this drug dealer who doesn’t want to face the consequences for his actions (deportation). The fact that he wasn’t deported immediately after serving jail time on an aggravated felony demonstrates a failure in the US immigration system.

This is the kind of  garbage that gets me riled up. The Philippines doesn’t allow Americans just come and stay as long as they want to without papers. Neither does Mexico. In fact you can never gain full Filipino citizenship if you don’t have Filipino blood. Yet we’re supposed to have sympathy for those that broke the rules actually having to face consequences?

Liberals always talk about respecting other country’s cultures and customs while at the same time defending those that don’t respect ours.

Counter Protesters Swarm Anti-Illegal Immigrant Freedom Fighters

 Refugees over Americans

According to the PewResearch Project America admitted a record number of Muslim refugees in 2016. But that’s not the important part. Besides the fact that these people can be potentially dangerous (regardless of religion) the important part is that these refugees enjoy lavish government benefits on our dime.



First they get $1850 as a ‘welcome gift’ from the American tax payer but it doesn’t stop there:

Refugees needing cash assistance can get it through Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). This is temporary financial assistance and social services for those eligible low-income refugees with dependent children. Cash assistance for refugees who do not qualify for TANF can also be obtained through Refugee Cash Assistance. This is available for those in U.S. for up to 8 months.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is also an option for incoming refugees and those who settled in the U.S. for up to nine years. This is cash is cash assistance for those low-income individuals who may be elderly, blind, or disabled.

Refugees who’ve been in the United States up to seven years are also offered medical financial assistance through Medicaid as well as through the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). Otherwise, Refugee Medical Assistance is available for up to eight months for those individuals who are not eligible for Medicaid.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is made available to refugees for up to nine years while social services for refugees — including job training, placement, and retention for those settled in the U.S — are available for up to five years. Daily Caller

All this while Americans are struggling to keep their heads above water!  With all these benefits a refugee family ends up receiving more money than an average working American family in Alabama.  As I said: foreigners first.

Illegals over our Veterans

The liberal media doesn’t like to mention the fact that many illegal immigrants get free health care. According to the liberal PBS

But while federal law generally bars illegal immigrants from being covered by Medicaid, a little-known part of the state-federal health insurance program for the poor pays about $2 billion a year for emergency treatment for a group of patients who, according to hospitals, mostly comprise illegal immigrants

All this while our veterans are literally dying waiting to be seen by a doctor.  Yes our vets are dying waiting to be seen by the VA. According to the liberal CNN

The VA’s inspector general found that out of about 800,000 records stalled in the agency’s system for managing health care enrollment, there were more than 307,000 records that belonged to veterans who had died months or years in the past.

In one case, a veteran who applied for VA care in 1998 was placed in “pending” status for 14 years. Another veteran who passed away in 1988 was found to have an unprocessed record lingering in 2014, the investigation found.

Liberals want to give illegal immigrants free health care while the American veterans who fought for their freedom to hate America are dying waiting for it.

Illegal Students over our Students

Americans owe approximately 1.2 trillion in student loan debt. Most of that to the federal government. As anyone with a federal student loan knows those can’t be discharged in bankruptcy and they never go away. As a conservative we all know the reason college tuition has gotten out of control is because of government interference.  If government would stop subsidizing these institutions tuition would plummet like a meteor in the night sky. That’ll never happen of course since Uncle Sam is profiting from the student loan racket. A profit to the tune of 135 billion dollars.

Where is that profit going? I suspect a large amount is used to give illegal immigrants free tuition. California, the city of Chicago and many other liberal bastions offer free or discounted tuition for illegal immigrants according to USA Today.

Trump Denies Visas to Countries that Won’t Take Back Deportees

Yes, Our Children Can Be Friends with White People!

Yes we can be friends with white people

This article is in response to the New York Times Op-Ed Can My Children Be Friends With White PeopleIt’s written by law professor Ekow N. Yankah and is currently one of the top op-eds in the New York Times. I read this article and of course the title is meant for shock value and in the article itself he says not all white people are bad blah blah blah.  I am a gay black conservative/libertarian who voted for Donald Trump so my perspective is unique to this topic.

Same old divisive leftist diatribe

He talks about a friend is someone that is not only friendly but truly cares about your well being. I couldn’t agree more. A friend is someone that not only talks the talk but walks the walk with you which brings me to my point about the left. They do a good job (admittedly better than conservatives) at humoring Blacks into thinking that they are on their side, especially during election season, but their policies not only do little to nothing for Blacks but actually hurt us.

Case in point 1: Chicago & Illinois

Chicago is a democratic city in the solidly democratic state of Illinois. Conservatives have no voice in Chicago and little in Illinois. Let’s see how Blacks are doing in Chicago. Well, not only does Chicago have the highest Black youth unemployment with 50% neither working nor in school the entire state of Illinois it has the lowest black employment rate in the country according to the conservative Illinoispolicy.org 

This has lead to Chicago being one of the murder capitals of America.  Frankly despite all of our talk about police brutality (some of it valid) I’d be more scared walking down the streets in the south side of Chicago than I would in redneck country or around any police headquarters. This is course makes perfect sense everyone knows when you have young men–of any race–with nothing productive to do that means trouble. Frankly from what I’ve seen most black people aren’t worried about being friends with white people they’re more scared of other black people!

Let me take this moment to make it clear to my readers that yes black people want to work! It’s just that labor unions and liberals have driven away a lot of the jobs that were traditionally done by Blacks particularly Black men.  The research is clear and profound:

… for each 10 percent increase in the federal or state minimum wage employment for young Black males decreased 6.5 percent. By contrast, after the same wage boost, employment for white and Hispanic males fell respectively just 2.5 percent and 1.2 percent.-Young Black Men Are the First to Go with Minimum Wage Hike

Case in point 2: Texas vs California

Texas is often presented as the poster child of the right and California of the left. Both states are doing well macroeconimcally but if we dig just a little bit deeper we can see a clear victor on which state is best for the majority of its people.  Look at the map above. In California 54% of Black people have some form of work while in Texas it’s 60%. That’s not just a snap shot in time either. Employment for Black Texans is increasing at a steady rate and Blacks getting richer. Compare that to their brothers and sisters in California

Now lets look at everyone else

 

You see income growth for everyone has grown the most in the two largest red states according to the conservative Heritage Foundation. So much for the leftiest diatribe of conservatives voting against their own interests. To put it more bluntly according to the Sacramento Bee “California exports its poor to Texas”

There was really nothing left for me in California,” said Kundurazieff, who also writes a blog about his cats. “The cost of living was high. The rent was high. The job market was debatable.” Friends in Texas suggested he relocate. He now works at a Walmart in Houston, making a little north of $10 an hour. He works 40 hours a week, riding his bike about 7 miles to work many days. He does not pay state income tax. His rent is just over $500, with utilities.

He’s not exaggerating either. California unequivocally has the nation’s highest poverty rate. According to the center left Politico

We have the highest poverty rate in the nation — higher than New Mexico, higher than any of the southern states, Louisiana, Alabama, higher than Idaho.-Politico

Case in point 3: Camden New Jersey

The liberal solution to everything is throw more money at it and bigger government. Does that work though? New Jersey spends on average $20,385 per student to educate their students. Statewide, per-pupil costs ranged from a high of $60,129 in one small district, to $10,181 for a Jersey City charter school with 310 students. If the liberal formula of more money=better outcomes then New Jersey students should be darn near the top in academic performance. Well I think you know where this is going. In Camden New Jersey nearly half of all students graduate on appeal meaning they failed to meet the state’s basic standards to get a high school diploma according to the liberal NPR News.

While not a slam dunk vouchers and charter schools have proven to be a better option than traditional government run schools. So much so even the liberal Brookings Institute had to admit that:

Harvard, University of Wisconsin and Brookings studied programs in New York City, the District of Columbia and Dayton. African American children did much better on test scores having had advantage of a voucher program.

Can we be friends with white people or should we be friends with liberals?

The left loves to focus on questions of race and gender as those are divisive. Conservatives did the same thing with same sex marriage in the early 2000’s but both of these are the wrong questions. Which side is doing better for the most people? If we look at Blacks, economic freedom tends to benefit blacks the most.  Instead of asking if we can be friends with white people what the professor should be asking is ‘Should Blacks be friends with liberals?’ Based on his criteria of actually caring about our well being it seems to be liberals care in their rhetoric but not in their policies. The tide of economic freedom raises all boats while big government only benefits a select few; mostly government employees and their labor union bosses.

I can’t help but remember my mother used to always tell me:

Talk is cheap

The New Gay Agenda- Preference Shaming

The new gay agenda- preference shaming

Take a look at the popular gay blog Queerty. If you scroll down you’ll see their tagline “No agenda except for the gay one”. If you read their articles you’ll see what the gay agenda means to them. Right now it seems to be trying to make people feel bad for having sexual preferences.

Here is a video of a white guy bitching about racism in the gay community

According to Queerty

For a people bonded by feeling different, sometimes it seems like we’ve learned to be almost as mean as the people who made us feel being different was wrong in the first place.

Queerty

In another article they state:

71% of gay men said they are actively turned off by a prospective partner who demonstrates signs of femininity. Meanwhile, 29% said they saw more effeminate characteristics in men as a positive trait.

So what’s the takeaway from all this?

Well, it looks as though a large majority of these gay men harbor misogynist attitudes, which they seem to apply toward themselves and others.

Queerty


Boo-fucking-hoo activists

There is a plethora of research to show that preferences are human and innate throughout the animal kingdom. According to Psychology Today.  Straight men have a preference for:

Youth

Long hair

Small waists

Blonde Hair

Blue Eyes

According to another article in the same publication straight women have a preference for:

Social status

Resources (money)

Height

Muscular physique

This shouldn’t be a shock to anyone that hasn’t been living under a rock their entire lives. What is shocking though is the liberal gay community seems to think preferences shouldn’t apply to gay men. When was the last time you saw an article on Cosmo Magazine trying to shame women for not being attracted to effeminate men? When was the last time you saw an article in Ebony magazine trying to shame Black women for having a preference for Black men? Hell I don’t even see lesbian publications trying to shame lesbians for have preferences. Full disclosure I don’t read lesbian publications.

Where does it stop?

I have a question to all those guys in the video that were crying because they didn’t get as much attention as they’d hoped on grindr. Have you ever rejected someone because you weren’t into them? Do you have preferences that you are attracted to or do you just accept anybody due to political correctness?  I have another question to all the PC lunatics. Are gay men sexist because they have a preference for men over women? Are tops ‘rolist’ because they have a preference for bottoms over tops?  Are bottoms ‘penisist’ because many of them prefer big dicks? Where does it stop?


Look up to 5

Guilting people doesn’t work

Preference shaming or guilting people into dating someone they don’t like won’t work. Who wants to date someone that doesn’t really want to be with them? It’s just like the racial activists that try to guilt white men into dating people they aren’t attracted to. If you talk to communities of color, however, they do have preferences and many of them are racial preferences.  There are sites like gayblackproud.org that do nothing but celebrate black beauty and put black men on a pedestal. There gay Latino pride sites as well, GayLatino&Proud. Under the leftist logic are those sites not racist also for promoting the beauty of one race over another? I bet if there was gay white and proud site there would be cries to shut it down and it would be given the scarlet letter of ‘racist’.

The hypocrisy

I saved the funniest part for last. Many of those who feel slighted have the same preferences are those who are slighting them. The Problematic Gender Politics Between Masc and Fem Gays-Vice. Most effeminate men don’t want effeminate men themselves! In addition most of the racial activists that are whining about white men themselves want to date white men exclusively.  In other words they’re crying, screaming, and shouting at other people for having the same preferences they do. Nice.

Now let’s take a look at Queerty itself shall we?

Did you notice something? Did you notice that almost every other article has a feature image of hot white men with their shirts off? Now if they’re so anti-preference why would they do that? Is it because feature images of hot men with their shirts off are more likely to get clicks which translates into more $$ for Queerty? So much for being a publication of principles Queerty.

The truth

Now for the real bombshell. Gay people are actually more likely to date outside of their race than straight people. According to the Williams Institute a liberal think tank that studies trends in homosexuality.

More than one in five same-sex couples (20.6%) are interracial or interethnic compared to 18.3% of different-sex unmarried couples and just 9.5% of different-sex unmarried couples (see Figure 5). More than half of same-sex couples in Hawaii (53%) are interracial or interethnic (see Figure 6). About a third fit that category in California (33%), New Mexico (31%), and Nevada (30%). Other states where same-sex couples are likely to be interracial or interethnic include Alaska (28%), District of Columbia (28%), Oklahoma (26%), Arizona (26%), Texas (25%), and Colorado (24%). Less than 10% of same-sex couples are interracial or interethnic in Maine, Mississippi, Vermont, West Virginia, and New Hampshire, and Alabama.-The Williams Institute

This just goes to show it’ll never be enough for the activists. They’ll always need something to bitch about in order to make themselves feel important.

The real solution

We are who we are and we like who we like. If someone isn’t into you for whatever reason suck it up and move on. Sorry Sean not everyone is going to be attracted to you. The free market also has a solution. There are now apps specifically for specific niches in the gay community.  Growlr for instance is specifically for large and/or mature men and their admirers. The app does half the work for you since by being on that app you’re saying you’re into large and/or mature men. Black men tend to use Jack’d. If there is a market need I’m sure there will be an app for gay asian & latino men and their admirers as well. There are facebook groups specifically for gay men over 30 as well!

In short stop whining! If your life is a pile of shit then plant some seeds and see if you can make something grow out of it. Don’t try to shame others into rolling in it with you.

 

Why Latin America is Poor

The reason why Latin America is poor is largely cultural. Oh no!! Racist alert! Kick him off the internet!!

Hear me out please!

Certain cultures are more apt to embrace liberal/leftist ideas and mindsets than others. This is article will make the case for why Latin American poverty is mostly due to culture:

Exhibit A Venezuela vs. Chile:

Venezuela was once the richest nation in Latin America. With vast oil reserves they enjoyed great wealth and prosperity they were the envy of their neighbors. Venezuela was Latin America’s richest country and now it is in complete crisis — here’s how it fell apart Thanks to Hugo Chavez I think we all know that’s no longer the case

Chile by contrast was one of the poorest nations of Latin America they had mining but socialist governments prevented economic freedom from bringing overall prosperity.

Then something changed.

Chile brought in Augsto Pinochet. He was a staunch capitalist who ushered in economic freedom. He allowed people and companies to compete causing prices to go down while economic output went up. Chile then became the unquestioned economic leader in Latin America despite having a small population and being geographically isolated. Read about the Chilean economic miracle. Pinochet tried his best to keep the leftist culture at bay but eventually the leftists won and forced him out. The country still embraced economic freedom until Michelle Bachlet came into power. Michelle Bachlet Good for Gays Bad for Chile – She ushered in economic ‘reforms’ like socialized universities and more ridiculous government handouts. These combined with a decline in the price of copper (Chile’s main export) have dramatically hurt the country.

Exhibit B Vietnam, Singapore, and Hong Kong

Vietnam has had more bombs dropped on it than any nation on Earth. To put it more plainly the US bombed the shit out of them. We did it to try to stop communism. Thanks to American leftists we were forced to withdraw suffering one of the most humiliating military defeats in our history. Ironically though communism didn’t last that long. Vietnam ended up embracing economic freedom . They are now one of the fastest growing nations (economically speaking) on Earth. Vietnam’s Economic Growth Surges to Above 7% as Exports Climb. Singapore & Hong Kong were also poor nations. Singapore was once just a random island in the middle of nowhere and Hong Kong was just a rock.

Why the culture difference? You see the Asian culture tends to value allegiance to authority, education, and hard work more than other cultures. We can take a look at something I enjoy; male sex symbols:

 

This is a Latin sex symbol. Notice the long hair, the tattoos, the rebellious look on his face. This guy screams “I follow no one’s rules!” and “I don’t have a job!”. Why Latin America is poor could be lately attributed to this guy.

 

Contrast that to what makes = women in Asia moist. You see the short & well groomed hair, professional attire, non-threatening smile, the light skin indicating he doesn’t spend much time outside rather he’s inside working.

 

 

 

 

These two images demonstrate the difference in culture. When you have a culture that embraces rebellion and being rebellious and ‘tough’ is what can get a guy laid that’s what many men will do.

Latin America has a protest always question authority culture. They protest over the smallest even most common sense reforms. For example in Mexico Pina Nieto passed a series of basic reforms for example that teachers could no longer sell their credentials to their children and the teacher’s union protested even that! I’m not kidding! There is a sense of entitlement in the mindsets of a lot of people (but not all) in Latin America.

Now for some anecdotes

I’ve been an expat in Latin America & in Asia. There are simply different mindsets. Let’s contrast Mexican gold diggers with Filipino ones. In Mexico I would have guys just message me on facebook out of the blue and ask:

“necesito dinero me puedes dar?” “I need money can you give it to me?”. I would ask in exchange for what? They would unashamedly say “pues quiero dinero a cambio de nada” “I want money money in exchange for nothing”.

I think they knew it was unlikely I would acquiesce but to even have the balls to ask for money like that is abhorrent in my view. Now Filipino gold diggers will say “Oh I love you lots I cook for you clean for you blah blah” even though in reality that may not happen at least they had the decency to offer something in return.

Now of course all cultures have beggars that want something for nothing but again I’ve never experienced people directly saying they wanted money in exchange for nothing until I lived in Latin America. That fits right into the paradigm of socialism. “You have more than I do so I’m entitled to some of what you have even if I didn’t earn it”. Its no wonder you see constant protests and advocacy for taking what others have worked for in order to give it to those that did nothing. So long as the culture of certain areas embraces the ‘I want something for nothing’ mindset they will always be poor and always be protesting.

Not All Alike Fight for Similar Causes

An Essay

For my entire life I have heard liberals talk about “people of color.” At first, I wasn’t sure what they were referring to because the closest thing I had ever heard of “people of color” was “colored” which simply meant “black.” I later learned that “people of color” is the name for the concept that all racial minorities are somehow one and are in this battle to fight white supremacy. This puzzled me because I, as a black man, had never thought of myself as “a person of color” before. The liberals then told me that I was “of color” simply by virtue of not being white. I felt that this idea was silly at the time and I have tried to wrap my mind around it by attending conferences and hanging out with these liberals, but now, nearly two years later, I still think it is just as silly as when I first heard it.

I feel this way because there is simply no such thing as a specific “person of color!” I don’t recall ever meeting a person whose skin color is clear. Every single human being has some sort of color, so how can they say that only certain people can qualify to be “of color?”

The idea that all the ethnic minorities are somehow united in this struggle for equality is equally as silly. In Los Angeles, many Hispanics are moving into what were traditionally black neighborhoods and a battle between the two races has ensued. I remember reading a quote from a young Hispanic man when he was asked about the situation; he simply replied “Fuck those niggers, this is our neighborhood now!”

It’s not just the Hispanics either; many Asians have racial differences with blacks. Asians are known to be “the model minority,” as they seem to have shown the most willingness to assimilate into American culture. Unfortunately, a part of that American culture is looking down upon or having a negative view of blacks. I have personally encountered more racist Asians in my lifetime than I have racist whites.

These liberal fascists also expect that as a person of color, I’m supposed to accept certain aspects of our society, such as the homosexual lifestyle, the constant disrespect for our southern border or PC thuggery. For the record, I do accept gays and support limited legal immigration. However, I know many black brothers and sisters who do not support such things. In an Internet forum for black students on Facebook, one girl said homosexuality was “disgusting. I saw Brokeback mountain yesterday while eating lunch and I almost threw up!” In addition, I am black and I absolutely do not support illegal immigration into the United States.

A lot of these liberals want to control the population, and me, by controlling our language. What is their tool for this? Political correctness thuggery, otherwise known as PC thuggery. As described in 1984 by George Orwell, one of the best methods of mind control is to control language. In the novel, the government deletes certain words from the vocabulary that go against its goals just the same as the liberal fascists do on this campus. For example, I’ve been told, very sternly, that the words “girls,” “ladies” and “Hispanic” are all offensive and should not be used. What is interesting is that the people who told me this do not say it is offensive to them personally; they always seem to say it is offensive to the group they claim to represent. I know plenty of females who refer to themselves as “girls.” My mother taught me to open the door for a female and say “ladies first,” and a friend from up north always refers to himself as “Hispanic” and not Latino, despite the fact that the liberal fascists of this campus say it is the proper way to refer to them.

My question is, why does my skin color oblige me or any other supposed “person of color” to accept any of these liberal ideas? The fact is that the liberal activists on this campus who claim to represent us do not. They are only representing themselves and their own political power aspirations. The professors who speak from an ivory tower that have served as their inspiration are simply out of touch with their own communities and they do not represent their respective communities.

California – It’s Okay to Spread Aids

With the stroke of a pen California governor Jerry Brown signed a bill into law. A law that’s one step closer to making it okay to spread the HIV virus.

From felony to misdemeanor

HIV Home Test from amazon.com
HIV Home Test from Amazon.com

The law changes the penalty if a person with HIV knowingly has unprotected sex (risking their lives) with someone and doesn’t disclose from a felony to a misdemeanor.

The rational is that ‘with effective HIV treatment its next to impossible to transmit the virus’. The key  word in that sentence is ‘effective treatment’. HIV treatment is a process. There’s a common misconception that it’s ‘pop a pill a day and the HIV goes away’.

Um no it doesn’t…

It can take months or even years to to find effective treatments depending upon the strand of HIV that a person is infected with.

Then there’s the little publicized fact that drug resistant HIV strands are emerging.

…more than 10% of people who are starting antiretroviral therapy in their country have a strain of the virus that’s resistant to the drugs used to treat it. source World Health Organization 

and

Increasing HIV drug resistance trends could lead to more infections and deaths. Mathematical modelling shows an additional 135 000 deaths and 105 000 new infections could follow in the next five years if no action is taken, and HIV treatment costs could increase by an additional US$ 650 million during this time. source World Health Organization 

New law encourages recklessness

One of the biggest deterrents to contracting HIV was and still is the stigma. In many circles having HIV is still a dating death sentence. This law is attempting to remove that stigma. However, it can be argued that the stigma is one of the last remaining forces we have to discourage reckless behavior. Now that a person infected with the HIV virus no longer has to disclose his status HIV might as well become the new common cold.

Oh wait…

There’s no cure for HIV. While, thankfully, we have developed more and more effective treatments against HIV it can’t be cured and having HIV is not the cake walk many people think it is. The medicines still have horrible side effects including vomiting, nausea, headache, and more source: national institute of health and science .  

The reality is once a person stops treating they die. There are still many people that decide they’d rather die than live under an HIV anti-retro viral regime.

Condoms from amazon.com

Its not just HIV

Graphic from CDC

With the increased recklessness as demonstrated by this report of lack of condom use we get transmissions of other STI’s.  While HIV transmissions are going down thanks to new and improve drugs rates of other STI infections are going up.  According to live science:

In 2016, a total of more than 2 million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis were reported in the United States, according to the report, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s the highest number of cases ever reported for these three STDs combined since the agency began tracking STDs in 1941. source livescience

We’ve spent so much time and effort educating about HIV we forgot about all the other STI’s.

Many gay men have the misconception that because they’re on Prep its okay to have unprotected sex with many partners.

If you think you may have been exposed to an STI but don’t want to go to a clinic you can get an STI Home Test Kits for Men from Amazon.com 

California what were you thinking?

There is nothing but sympathy for those with HIV. They are our brothers and sisters and should not be treated as lepers. We can achieve this through  increased education. But to suggest that anyone can knowingly expose an innocent person to this horrible virus with little to no consequence is nothing short of lunacy. People have a right to know if they are being exposed to a life changing disease and make the decision for themselves.   This law takes away the right of the many to be informed to protect the egos of the few.  Good job California.

Support Free Speech at UC Berkeley

“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.”
― George Orwell

Protect Free Speech Week

For months the leftist administration at the tax payer funded University of California at Berkeley have tried to come up with excuse after excuse to block free speech week on their campus. They didn’t respond to emails, made outrageous funding requests, and set arbitrary deadlines in order to stop free speech week from happening on campus.  Milo Yiannopoulos author of the best selling book Dangerous  (read it on a Kindle Fire) explains in this video all of the attempts the university has made thwart the event.

This is but a small list of conservative voices that liberal university administrators have tried to or succeeded in silencing on university campuses. We cannot allow this to continue. These voices have a right to be heard regardless of what liberal administrators think or their friends in the main stream media.

“If you allow yourself to be silenced then you didn’t deserve to be heard in the first place”-Me

I am a gay black conservative and you better believe I’ve gotten a lot of flack for that. Including from my own family. I, however, have chosen to take the harder path and not allow myself to be silenced. Here’s a recent facebook post by me.

So I’ve had very well intentioned good hearted people ask me why I post some of the controversial things that I do on my facebook account. The reason is if we allow people to effectively silence opinions that they don’t like/agree with then we lose who we are as a society. The free discussion of ideas if what intellectualism is all about in my opinion.

One person commented in a private message that I was driving people away. He was right. But what he didn’t realize was I am also drawing new people towards me. Friendships come and friendships go but you’ll always have to live with yourself. I’d rather have to lose some friends than to know I was silenced by those that disagree with me. I can and have made new friends. I can never make a new me.
