My Perspective on that black thing

The Bearable Whiteness Of Being

I wanted to post this last night, but I was too tired. We were listening to Hannity on FoxNews, going on and on and on and ON about how the police are totally needed to curb the problem of black on black violence in the big cities.

While he is right, that’s a bit of sleight of hand. What is really needed is black people to act responsibly and to curb their base violent tendencies, and reject the idea that drugs, crime, pimps, and gangs are cool.

While Hannity was throwing out numbers, statistics, and pictures of the latest batch of black children killed in the crossfire, I realized that I’d like to offer some of my own personal statistics. Perhaps they don’t count, because “white privilege”, but they remain true regardless.

I live in a condo park. There is another smaller condo park at the top of the hill. Down at the bottom of the hill is a newer small complex of 3 townhouses. The three places together sit on about 85 acres, and that rough measurement includes some woods, and two small ponds. Our park has 438 units, the other condo park has 72 units, and the apartment complex has 36 units. So 546 units total; about 1000 people live here. The two condo parks were built in the late 1970s; the apartments are from about 2015. Until those apartments went in, this place was 98% lily white, but HUD and Obama demanded affordable diversity housing, so the new place has lots of ethnic residents.

There are 640 acres per square mile, so 1000 people on 85 acres is about 7950 people per square mile, a living density in the same arena as many urban areas.

We have not had any crime or problems since “the darkies” moved in. And we had about 0 crime before that. Nobody really cares here if you look or talk different, welcome to the street, keep the music down, and clean up after your dog.

So, here are our statistics

murders in the last 40 years: 0

shootings in the last 40 years: 0

robberies in the last 40 years: 0

rapes in the last 40 years: 0

burglaries in the last 40 years: less than 5, and they happened long before I moved here in 1997. Burglars got caught, residents bought guns and alarm systems, problem solved.

arson cases in the last 40 years: 0

drug busts in the last 40 years: 0

child abductions in the last 40 years: 1, in which a divorced dad kept his visiting daughter a couple days longer than he was allowed. Charges dropped.

car theft in the last 40 years: 0. Ok, maybe 1 temporary one. And that was a repo where the tow truck guys took the wrong Audi from a parking lot that had 6 of them, 3 the same color. Oopsie!

DUI arrests: maybe a couple, ex post facto. About 8 years ago I remember seeing a car parked halfway over the parking spot on the hill going down to the pond. And somebody did miss one of the sharp road corners late one night 5 years ago and took a chunk out of the corner of one of the buildings.

Do we have continuous and intimidating police presence here? Oh hella no. Although the Clinton cops use our road as a shortcut to get to the diner, we’re actually in Union Township, which doesn’t have a police department. The State Police give us what coverage we need, which is just about none. They also use our private road as a shortcut, as we have exits and entrance ramps to the highway near both ends of our village.

So it isn’t the cops that keep our area crime free. It’s the people who live here. It’s their attitude of self-respect and neighborliness. A generally higher level of education and income might have something to do with it, although us condo people are the poor folks in this area. Which doesn’t mean that this place is a run down garbage dump either. It’s in good repair, pretty clean, no junk cars, no public drunks, no vagrants, and only a couple low-res residents.

To me this is perfectly normal. Just people being people. Maybe if Hannity’s people were people instead of dimwitted feral animals, they wouldn’t need tons of policing either.

PS - this part of the state is so Republican that half the time the Democrats can’t even find a candidate for some of the local government positions. They don’t get elected anyway, so why bother? We do have some liberals here, but they keep their yaps shut because the rest of us just laugh at their foolishness.

Boston Caves To Insanity

Good Lord, if these destructors would only spare one statue, wouldn’t it be this one?


Boston Removing Lincoln Emancipation Statue




With a unanimous vote, the Boston Art Commission voted Tuesday to get rid of the Emancipation Memorial commemorating President Abraham Lincoln’s signing of the proclamation that ended slavery in America.

The statue, first erected in 1879, is a replica of the monument in Washington, D.C., that depicts Lincoln standing with a freed slave in the process of standing up as shackles fall from his arms. The inscription at the base of the statue, which was paid for by freed slaves and dedicated by the beloved abolitionist Frederick Douglass, reads: “A race set free and a country at peace. Lincoln rests from his labors.”

...

During his dedication of the original statue on April 14, 1876 — 11 years after Lincoln’s assassination — Douglass delivered a powerful dedication in front of then-President Ulysses S. Grant, members of the U.S. Congress as well as justices of the U.S. Supreme Court.

“Let it be known everywhere,” he declared, “[that] we, the colored people, newly emancipated and rejoicing in our blood-bought freedom, near the close of the first century in the life of this Republic, have now and here unveiled, set apart, and dedicated a monument of enduring granite and bronze, in every line, feature, and figure of which the men of this generation may read, and those of after-coming generations may read, something of the exalted character and great works of Abraham Lincoln, the first martyr president of the United States.”

Cuomo the idiot

Another Case Of Fake Noose

fake noose

A visitor at Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem took a photo Saturday of what was called a “noose” hanging from a tree near the historic Fire Watch Tower, WNBC-TV reported.

And man, did that ever set people off — among them Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the station said.

“I am disgusted by the recent discovery of a noose — the epitome of hatred and an evil icon of our nation’s racist past — in Harlem’s Marcus Garvey Park,” Cuomo’s Tuesday statement read, according to WNBC. “New York is no place for hate, and the progress we’ve made as a society will not be undone by the work of a few cowards.”

But later that same evening, the New York Police Department’s Hate Crimes Task Force indicated no act of hate occurred, WNBC reported.

The NYPD Hate Crime Task Force investigated this incident thoroughly. According to the park director, it was left over from a construction scaffold that was removed in the fall. The rope was used to hoist construction materials.

I love the defusing BS from the cops.

Let’s face it:

1) No construction worker would use a tree as a lifting point. They might drop a rope from a pulley, but that would be in or on the tower itself. The cop’s story is bogus if the rope was actually in a tree. Also, that looks like a total POS bit of rope. Not what a building crew would use ever.

2) If there was a noose hanging there since last fall, about a zillion people would have seen it by now. It was put there just a couple days ago obviously, possibly by the person who took the photo.

3) Don’t you dare cry racism in a place not a single white person would dare to go to in fear of their very lives. Marcus Garvey Park? In Harlem??? AYFKM??

4) 2 + 3 = hoax hate crime. The only possible person who could have put this up was black.

PS - it’s a bowline, not a hangman’s noose. It’s not even a slip knot, which is what a hanging noose is based on. More proof, because even basic knot tying is beyond some people?

UPDATE, NOW WITH EVEN MORE FAKE NOOSE!!: NASCAR Noose is also a hoax [ see below the fold ]

OH STFU CHOP

Juneteenth In Seattle: YT Ain’t Welcome, But Guard Us And Give Us Free Shit

The radical enclave in Seattle known as the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP) will apparently feature a Juneteenth celebration on Friday that will be restricted to black people, while white people are being asked to provide security and donations.

Fox News reported Friday that the CHOP, formerly known as the “CHAZ” (for Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone), would be entirely closed to white people.

...

A Facebook page for the event, called “Juneteenth Blackout at the CHOP,” details the plans for the 12-hour observance:

We’re blacking out CHOP…the viral death of black bodies was the catalyst for this current movement and we need to make sure we remain focused. This means both policy and systemic change to our systems and healing space for black people.

So that’s exactly what we’re creating. A series of events in which we center black healing and community.

What we need from our non-black allies are donations of money and supplies and the willingness to support by quietly protecting sacred space for black healing. We need allies on the outskirts who are willing to be a physical barrier of protection and to peacefully deter potential interruptions.

The schedule for the day includes a “grief ritual” and “community art healing.” There seems to be no formal acknowledgement of the significance of June 19 — namely, that it marks the moment in 1865 after the Civil War when slaves in Texas were informed that they had been liberated more than two years earlier as a result of President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation.

There is also a GoFundMe page, “Black Out at the CHOP,” that appears to be run by the organizers of the Juneteenth event.

The Cal Anderson Park also hosts the CHOP’s community garden, which includes a portion set aside for “black and indigenous folks and their plant allies.”

Know what? We used to have a day to celebrate emancipation. It was called Lincoln’s Birthday. We also have the Fourth of July to celebrate all of our freedoms (the few we have left at any rate) which would include manumission. So being exclusive is not just pandering, it’s racist. Segregationalist. No.

Know what else? If you want to make Juneteenth a national holiday, then EVERYBODY gets to celebrate it. Because dem slaves didn’t free demselfs, now did they? So it’s something we should all be part of, or none of us. Because actually, it means jack shit, especially when more than the half the population didn’t even have ancestors here at the time.

I’m tired of this divisiveness. And I’m beyond tired of the pandering and the kow-towing. I don’t see all the Koreans having “We Escaped Communist Tyranny Day”. Heck no, they’re too busy working.

The Beyond Obvious News

News story: “7 shot in 10 minutes in Brooklyn shootings”

Do you even need to click to know who done it? Hell no.

Seven people were wounded in three shootings just 10 minutes apart Monday night in different Brooklyn neighborhoods, police said.

The gunplay started at about 10:40 p.m. on Bainbridge Street near Malcolm X Boulevard in Bedford-Stuyvesant, cops said.

Two men, ages 27 and 34, were each struck in the leg, authorities said. They were taken to Kings County Hospital and were expected to survive.

Malcom X Blvd, victims shot in the legs. Case closed.

Black Lives Matter. Except to other blacks.  Isn’t there a bible passage about a mote in my eye but a cinder in yours?

Finally, at about 10:50 p.m., four people — a woman and three men — were caught in a hail of gunfire on Bristol Street near Newport Street in Brownsville, authorities and witnesses said.

The woman, 23, is in critical condition and the men — ages 17, 35, and 50 — all suffered non-life threatening injuries, cops said.

A witness to the Brownsville shooting, 55-year-old Robert Green, said so many shots were fired that he lost count.

More shots than you can count, but nobody is dead, and 3 of the 4 aren’t majorly wounded. Case closed, again.

Police have no suspects. Duh.

More Back To Normal: Pushing Identity Politics On Children

Crayola Releases “Colors Of The World” Skin Tone Crayons

image

Every body is beautiful — and Crayola has released an inclusive new line of crayons to celebrate just that.

The iconic art supply company has created a palette of 24 global shades for its new “Colors of the World” box, which is designed to illustrate more than 40 skin tones.

Because Crayola believes that every child should be able to “creatively and accurately color themselves into the world they see around them,” the brand hopes the new line can help cultivate a more inclusive world for kids of all ages, races, cultures and ethnicities.
...
Slated to hit store shelves in July, the exciting new crayons will be sold in 24 and 32-packs, the latter featuring new hair and eye colors as well.

Each of the Colors of the World crayons will be wrapped in “gradient” skin tone labels with the color names listed in English, Spanish and French. Color names like “light golden,” “deep almond” and “medium deep rose” were selected to be realistic and relatable, helping kids easily chose the shade they most identify with.



“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their crayons but by the content of their character.”

I don’t buy in this at all. Maybe it is a good product for the few artists who do portraiture with crayons, but for children? No. I think it’s much better, more innocent, for little kids to draw mommy, daddy, and the family dog in red, green, or purple. Do little kids REALLY need to be skin tone aware, and “identify” with only the shades of that they see around them?

Wouldn’t it be a better, more inclusive world if ALL of us could get past this kind of simplistic classification?

Valerie Powers Makes Her Groovy Move

imageimage

Valerie Jarrett: Dem VP Pick Should Be Woman Of Color

Because, you know, Valerie is a Woman of Color. Yeah ... white. She so white she make Corey Booker look like Kanye.

Former President Barack Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett on Tuesday urged whichever 2020 Democratic presidential candidate emerges as the leader after the conclusion of Super Tuesday to “break with conventional wisdom and announce a running mate that’s a woman of color,”

...

“Tonight?” asked host Gayle King.

“No, not tonight,” Jarrett replied. “Certainly before the next primary. Woman, person of color, someone who reflects the diversity of our party. And yeah, that’s not usual, that’s not what they normally do, but these are not normal times. And I think it would send an important signal going into the next round of primaries to do so with a running mate.”

Maybe Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is available?

I have no interest in this at all, but I couldn’t resist putting up a picture of her in her Austin Powers outfit. Compare her tone to the three white folks she’s on the video with.

Color Me Shocked

Two unrelated news stories about pigmentation attitudes. I wonder if “white privilege” means living your life without noticing your skin tone, while large parts of the rest of the world fret about it constantly?
I’m not kidding. Awareness of my own race is something I never think about. And while I might notice yours, I really don’t care one way or the other, until you start throwing it my face all the time as an excuse and motivation for everything in your life. At which point I write you off.


Gorgeous Indian Actresses Take Stand Supporting Government Ban On Fairness Advertising

image

Tapsee Pannu is super cute

At first glance I found this confusing. Why would anyone be against advertising fairness? Although I’m not sure exactly what that means.

The Indian Government is coming with a lot of changes in the advertising sector. The Health and Welfare Ministry has proposed an amendment for Drugs and Magic Remedies under objectionable Advertisement Act, 1954 with a strict punishment that goes up to five years of imprisonment as well as a fine of 50 lakh. However, this step by the government has been applauded by the people on social media. Bollywood celebrities too praised the great step initiated by the government.

Some celebrities like Tapsee Pannu, Dia Mirza and many others have not only praised this act but also welcomed it with great response.

Speaking about the same, Tapsee told the media that she hopes that it impacts consumers and they stop buying these fairness creams and realise that there are no standard of beauty. According to her, it is a very personal matter to any human being on how he or she wants to look. She further said if she is asked to endorse any fairness cream or product, she would never do it.

Dia Mirza who is known for her stands on matters of importance like politics and environment has spoken on the same and said, “We evolve in our understanding of what kind of advertising perpetuates stereotypes, gender discrimination and falsehoods, we must collectively take responsibility to ensure this ends as soon as possible.”

There is some level of hypocrisy here; all of these actresses have very light complexions; many other similar celebrities have endorsed these “whiten up” products.

PS - A lakh is 100,000, so a 50 lakh fine, 5 million Rupees, is around $70,000.

UVA’s New Multicultural Center Is Too White??

The University of Virginia on Wednesday reminded those on campus that its newly opened Multicultural Student Center is open to everyone after a viral video emerged of a student making a “public service” announcement that there were “too many white people” using the facility.

The video was posted on Twitter by the Young America’s Foundation with a caption that said “leftists” at the school were “dictating who is and who isn’t allowed” at the center.

The unidentified woman in the video begins by saying “public service announcement.”

“If ya’ll didn’t know, this is MSC and frankly there are just too many white people in here and this is a space for people of color,” she said. “So just be really cognizant of the space that you’re taking up because it does make some of us POC uncomfortable when we see too many white people in here.”

She argued that white students already have plenty of recreational facilities on campus, while minority students have very few. She was cheered by what sounded like a handful of students at the end of the announcement.

The Cavalier Daily, the student newspaper, said it reached out to the student in the video but she did not immediately respond for its report.

The school recently opened new student spaces to support a diverse student body, the report said.

The paper reported that the new MSC facility replaced the Center for Cultural Fluency that was located inside a basement on the campus. The old location was created in 2004 after a mixed-race female student running for Student Council was assaulted by a man who made a racial slur.

Well kudos to the Young America’s Foundation for bringing this to people’s attention, but you’re spitting into the wind. Learn to decode understand the word games PC plays. “Multicultural” means the same as “diversity” means the same as “cultural fluency” and all of them mean “anybody but whites, and not too many Asians either”.

Interesting how every single recreational facility on campus is open to all students always. Not segregated in the slightest. Yet this video’s author feels there should be even more spaces set aside for “minority” groups. Because being around white people makes POC students “uncomfortable”. Go figure. That sounds like blatant hard core racism to me.

30 years ago I argued against any and all enclave areas on campuses, whether they were religious or ethnic driven. If you really feel the need to self segregate, go back to your dorm with your friends from your group.

Ferals In The Subway: Lazy Racist Chicago Cops

11 “teens” Rob And Beat Elderly Man On Chicago Subway

I’m really peeved about this story. I’ll try not to go all “raycis” but no promises. Not only is this totally out of control, it’s totally common. “Dog bites man” is hardly even news, but this time it was a whole pack of dogs.

•  68 yo white man falls asleep on Chicago subway

•  feral teen girl tries to pick his pocket but he wakes up, tells her to buzz off

•  she comes back with 10 more ferals and they take turns beating him to a pulp

•  entire incident captured on CCTV

•  dozens of witnesses, but only one came forward

•  Chicago cops say they can’t prosecute

•  witness’s name released, but refused to give interview to news

CHICAGO—The brutal beating of a 68-year-old man by 11 teens on a passenger train here Monday was captured in a disturbing, graphic video obtained by Fox News.

The Chicago Police Department told Fox News the beating is under investigation, but no one is in custody because the victim “was unable to identify his attacker(s) due to his injuries.”

A police source told Fox that the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office “wouldn’t touch” the case if the victim can’t identify those accused or is unable to cooperate.

When reached about prosecuting the case, state’s attorney’s office responded: “We are unable to comment.”

The footage shows one of the female teens first trying to pickpocket the victim while he’s asleep. The man awakens, tries to fend off the teens, but the woman drags and beats the man.

She then appears to run to another car, and returns with a group of teens including five men and two women. They surround the man seated on the train.

One man pummels the victim, even lifting himself up on the train’s bars to repeatedly kick him in the upper body and face. The video also appears to show many bystanders failing to intervene.

...

A single witness is listed on the police report. Fox News has reached out to the witness and has not received comment.



Let’s see: 11 assailants but 5 of them are male and 3 of them are female including the pickpocket. I guess the other 3 were transgendered? Whatever.

And the beaten man, hospitalized, can’t ID the perps, so the cops won’t do a thing. Even though the entire thing is on CCTV. So what’s the point of having CCTV? And what about murders - the victim can’t identify the killers, so the cops can’t prosecute? That explains the insanely low arrest and conviction rate for murder in the Windy City.

The law has obviously failed. I think it’s Charles Bronson time.

Not Just Killing And Theft

A little “crime stoppers” sidebar story in the local news. It shows a certain truth, therefore it must be racist.

Newark Public Safety Director Anthony F. Ambrose reports that police are seeking the public’s help in locating the below pictured suspects wanted for outstanding domestic violence warrants.

In the 3 screens of Wanted pictures shown, 44 people appear. 36 of them are black, 6 of them are hispanic, 2 of them are white/asian. That’s 82%, 13.5%, and 4.5% respectively. Does that tell you anything?

Each picture is captioned with the crime. How white am I? I had to look up “VRO” because I’d never heard of it. I guessed it meant “violating restraining order” but it really means “violent repeat offenders”, which is the same thing, only worse.

But this is a report just from Newark NJ, so maybe it only reflects a highly local temporary situation. Certainly not indicative of a permanent national trend. Oh noes, never ever.

Riiiight.

Meanwhile in the UK

It’s A Crisis!!

BLM UK stages Day Of Rage or something. Blocks traffic and runways, creates headaches for commuters.
Lie-Ins, Die-Ins, protest marches, etc.

Very few actual black people involved.

image

“Right-o then, all you golliwogs, front and center! You too, Miss Tranny Thang”

Black Lives Matter UK campaigners blocked roads leading to London’s largest airport as part of a series of nationwide protests Friday.
Some transport routes in other British cities came to a standstill, with demonstrators chaining themselves together in Birmingham and Nottingham. More protests were planned in Manchester.

The UK-wide protests mark five years since 29-year-old black man Mark Duggan was shot and killed by police in north London. His death sparked riots across the capital and other British cities.
“In the UK, families have in some cases been waiting decades to find out what’s happened to their loved ones who have died in custody, or to get a straight answer—even where wrongdoing has been found to be by police officers,” Black Lives Matter UK spokesman Wail Qasim, 23, told CNN.
“So this demonstration comes after a decade-long struggle and it’s to highlight what’s happening.”

Starting around 8:20 a.m. (3:20 a.m. ET), several demonstrators began chaining themselves together and lying across the M4 motorway leading to Heathrow Airport beneath a banner reading: “This is a crisis.”
Ten people were arrested, said London’s Metropolitan Police.

Between 200 and 300 people gathered in Altab Ali Park in the London neighborhood of Whitechapel to hear calls for unbiased treatment for people of color.
Transit was not shut down. Police maintained a discreet presence in the park but several police vans were parked on nearby streets with reinforcements if necessary.
The park was named after a Bangladeshi man killed in a 1978 racially motivated killing.

SFPD Pic is big insult to BLM



The union representing San Francisco police officers published a photograph of two dogs in its monthly newspaper that critics say belittles the Black Lives Matter movement and raises questions about the police force’s commitment to repairing its relationship with communities of color.

The picture, which appeared on the back page of the August issue of the San Francisco Police Officers Association Journal, shows a pair of Labrador retrievers, one black and one white. The black dog has a sign around its neck reading, “Black Labs Matter,” while the white dog sports a sign reading, “All Labs Matter.”

The photo, submitted by a union supporter, is accompanied by a plea from the union: “Maybe it’s time we all just sit back and tone down the rhetoric,” a reference to many months of heated national debate over police shootings and, recently, the targeted slayings of police officers.

The photo weighs in on a controversy that has flared on social media and has animated political debates. Some people have countered the phrase “Black lives matter” by saying, “All lives matter,” and they in turn have been accused of objecting to a simple request that black people be treated fairly.

People in the Black Lives Matter movement have sought to explain that the focus on black lives is appropriate because black people are disproportionately profiled and killed by police.

The dog photo “once again shows a severe lack of understanding,” said Sgt. Yulanda Williams, president of Officers for Justice, an organization within the San Francisco police force representing African American and other nonwhite officers. “It’s so inflammatory, and they still don’t get it. They still choose to inflame situations, and it’s just really insulting.”

Good. Anything that belittles this bunch of uppity racist shits is a good thing. The whole thing is inappropriate and poorly named. Because it isn’t #BlackLivesMatter. At best, assuming they are honest in their intentions (doubtful) it ought to be #EndPoliceViolence or something. Because black lives don’t matter to other blacks at all; they have abortions left and right, and they wound and kill each other constantly. How many thousand just this year so far in just Chicago? Please. It’s just the ones that get shot by cops because they didn’t heed the officer’s instructions (usually while committing some other crime)? And that’s a load of cobblers. The whole movement is a disingenuous attempt to lever PC to allow criminals to run rampant. Fuck that.

these lives don’t matter

Woodpile

Balloons and candles were strewn across the sidewalk after those attending a candlelight vigil in west Baltimore were forced to run for their lives.

“Here we are again investigating a senseless crime,” said Detective Donny Moses. “A heinous crime.”

Investigators say 20-30 people were gathered at the corner of North and Fulton avenues Monday evening to honor 24-year-old Jermaine Scofield, who was killed early Sunday morning. As the vigil was underway, someone in the crowd started firing.

“We’re trying to celebrate where one person lost his life, trying to pay him respects and someone maliciously and foolishly walked into the crowd and opened fire,” Moses said.

Five people were hit by the bullets, four of them women. The gunman got away.

Community members are disturbed by the constant violence.

“I see how things are happening in the neighborhood,” said Rev. Keith Bailey, Fulton Heights Community Association. “People are losing their lives over small, little things.”

Scofield was among three people killed early Sunday morning. [several more were shot or stabbed but lived] His mother begged for no retaliation.

Doreen Scofield said she has forgiven whoever killed Jermaine and told her family she wants no retaliation.

“It’s not going to bring my son back,” she said. “I just want to bury my son.”

She had a plea for those committing violent acts like the one that took her son:

“I’m tired. I’m human. You human. Just stop hurting people.”

147 or more killings so far this year, and all they can say about it is “well, it was worse last year at this point.” Wonderful.

Here’s an eye-opener [no, not really] from last week where almost all the victims have something in common.

But don’t worry, YOU’RE PAYING FOR IT.  So prepare to pay more. Three times as much.

The federal subsidy known as the “Obamaphone” or “Obamanet” program could be losing nearly $500 million to fraud annually, according to a top Republican on the Federal Communications Commission.

Commissioner Ajit Pai made the accusation Wednesday in letter to the Universal Service Administrative Company, referring to the FCC’s Universal Service Fund, which provides a monthly $9.95 subsidy for telecom service to low-income consumers.

The subsidy is limited to one per “independent economic household,” or IEH, but telecom companies have the ability to override that restriction if applicants check a box stating they represent a separate household, even if they have the same address.

...

Pai wrote that data obtained by the FCC last month revealed carriers had enrolled nearly 4.3 million subscribers using the IEH override process between October 2014-April 2016, or 35.5 percent of total subscribers for the period. “It is alarming that over one-third of subscribers — costing taxpayers almost half a billion dollars a year — were registered through an IEH override.

...

The program was originally established to help low-income consumers in rural areas obtain access to 911 services. It was expanded to include cellular devices in more recent years, and expanded in March to include Internet service.

Right. Free cell phones for all my peoples. And now, free internet. And not some lame slappy internet. Broadband baby, the good shit.

Not that this is anything new, nor is it even the full story or even the real number of the cheaters. This is just the number of NEW cheaters, more than a third of all new signees. Old cheaters are still in the system ...

Last year [2011], a federal program paid out $1.6 billion to cover free cell phones and the monthly bills of 12.5 million wireless accounts. The program, overseen by the FCC and intended to help low-income Americans, is popular for obvious reasons, with participation rising steeply since 2008, when the government paid $772 million for phones and monthly bills. But observers complain that the program suffers from poor oversight, in which phones go to people who don’t qualify, and hundreds of thousands of those who do qualify have more than one phone.
...
an FCC audit of the program last year showed that many participants in the program were taking more than their fair share. According to Businessweek:

269,000 wireless Lifeline subscribers were receiving free phones and monthly service from two or more carriers.

Right. All of those accounts got squashed. But that was 4 years ago. How many million more accounts are there? 12.5 million in February 2012, about 12 million new ones from late 2014 to now, figure in at least 8 million new accounts from 2012 to 2014? That’s 33 million phones. More than one person in ten has free telephone service, courtesy of the government, aka your wallet? What the flippity fluck? Who the frick is paying for all this ??????????

Oh, you are. I am. And it’s about to get worse. All the little gibbs grabbers just got a service increase. Nice fat internet. With wi-fi I’m sure. So free porn and online games! Now let’s give them top end big screen name brand “phablets” so they don’t feel “out Jonesed” by the Joneses who actually work for a living and spend $800 hard earned dollars on a shit-hot smart phone (pretty stupid if you ask me, but I’m a Luddite, and it’s their money so it ain’t my business).

BOHICA, BOHICA ...

FCC commissioner: Expect a broadband Internet tax

The federal government cannot afford the subsidies being poured into telecommunication services, unless it’s planning to impose a new tax on broadband Internet Service, a member of the Federal Communications Commission said on Wednesday.

“It’s telling that the agency is already spending money in anticipation of getting a greater amount of revenue from the Universal Service Fund,” FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai told a Senate panel.

“We boosted the E-Rate budget by $1.5 billion per year last year. By all accounts, next month we’re going to expand the Lifeline program to broadband without any meaningful budget or cap. That money is already being spent, and it has to come from somewhere. I would respectfully submit to you that ultimately, it’s going to be in the form of a broadband tax,” Pai added.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
