Proof that "Black Lives Matter" doesn't matter, and apparently neither do some black lives

Black Lives Matter activist kills himself on steps of Ohio statehouse

Washington Post  - ‎3 hours ago‎
A prominent young Ohio activist killed himself on the steps of the statehouse Monday. MarShawn M. McCarrel II, a leading member of the state's Black Lives Matter movement, shot himself outside the capitol's entrance at around 6 p.m.


I don't believe the above article needs much explanation.  This fool MarShawn executed himself to show that Black Lives Matter.  Apparently they didn't matter much to him.  He showed himself an idiot, not a martyr.  He couldn't find anyone else willing to take his matterless life, so he took it himself.  You see the irony, right?  If his life didn't matter to Caucasians (the putative enemy), one of them would have killed him long ago.  The matter of his life was never the issue.  He, his ideas, and his activities didn't matter enough to anyone to justify killing him.  And apparently, he had better sense than to rob, loot, pillage, plunder, and riot, so no cops decided to kill him either.  He didn't matter enough to be killed, and he just could not stand that, so he killed himself.  Like I said.  Idiot. 

And I am one of the few people to notice that no Negro activist can lay a guilt trip on Caucasians by killing himself. Few have tried it, and it has never worked. Martin Luther King and Mahatma Ghandi knew that.  You have to stay alive in order to annoy and shame your putative oppressor. 

As far as I know, no sensible American has ever claimed that Negro lives simply and absolutely do not matter.  So creating an activist organization with the name "Black lives matter" was simply and absolutely stupid.  Just about as stupid as creating the Black Panthers organization with no intent other than to hurt Caucasians.

Let's get honest here.  Racial stereotypes exist for a sound reason.  They typify commonly observable characteristics of racial groups. Every racial group has its stereotypes.  People of all races have commented on the Negro stereotype they have observed in inner city ghettos:  I don't know a name for it, but it boils down to Obnoxious Negro Thuggery.

That stereotype includes Negro flash mobs that rush into stores to steal goods and rush out, rioters who burn cars and set fires to buildings over some presumed outrage, the knockout game by Negro thugs where non-Negroes become the majority victims, countless car jackings, burglaries, rapes, robberies, muggings, and murders by Negro thugs and gang members, fatherless Negro children matriarchal households, Negro women procreating children without restraint in order to bleed the welfare system, all while belligerently insisting they have the God-given right to food stamps, section 8 housing, and other forms of welfare, hypocritically calling one another "Nigger" while daring any non Negro to refer to a Negro as "Nigger," wearing jailbird attire including low slung baggy pants with underwear showing, wearing ball caps at an angle, installing gold caps on teeth just for show, walking around in untied sneakers, wearing hoodies to disguise their identities, inventing jailbird music like hiphop and rap, having a big chip on the shoulder, and twerking. 

Just to name a few.

Of COURSE many Negroes do NOT fit that stereotype.  But so many do fit it as to seem comical, and even disgusting and loathsome to many, if not most, non-Negroes.

And, OF COURSE, most Caucasians do not fit the stereotype of "cracker," trailer-trash, skinhead, or redneck.  But many do, and that might seem disgusting and loathsome to Negroes and people of other races.

People of disparate racial groups should try to make coexistence tolerable, not wretched.  I know few non-ghetto Cauasians who can tolerate the presence of ghetto Negro behavior - they generally do their best to avoid it as much as ghetto Negroes try to put that behavior in their faces.

The problem with the Black Lives Matter slogan and organization lies in its assumption that Negroes who get themselves killed by police, or by Caucasians in self defense, did nothing to deserve it, and that the killers hated them only because of their Negroid characteristics, possibly the ghetto Negro stereotype.  Most Negroes whom law enforcers have killed deserved it, and nearly all could have avoided it with sensible behavior.  The real problem:  Negro organizers and leaders don't do enough to spotlight and discourage ghetto behavior by which Negroes put themselves in harm's way among people who fear them, dislike their stereotypical behavior, and distrust them.

Most mothers with any common sense teach their children to behave politely around police and when out in public.  But the ghetto Negro stereotype seems to mandate loud, boisterous, rude, obnoxious, insulting, disrespectful behavior, as though to get others to notice and despise them.  Ghetto parents seem to teach their children to mouth off at adults who try to correct their misbehavior.  Such children might say "You not my mf-ing mama, you can't tell me what to do."

If Negro lives really mattered to Negro parents and organizers of the NAACP, Black Lives Matter, etc, they would teach Negro children to behave respectfully to others, not to rob and loot and destroy, but rather to protect property, not to beat one another, but to protect one another, not to act rude and noisy, but to comport themselves with dignity, perhaps so as to set a good example for any Caucasians or Hispanics in the vicinity.

But they don't.  So obviously, Black Lives Don't Matter that much, not to those hypocritical organizers and leaders of Negro civil rights groups.  Because, clearly it is that obnoxious behavior, not the fact of being black, that gets so many Negroes killed.  And the self execution of the fool MarShawn McCarrel constitutes a prime example of obnoxious behavior calculated to get the wrong kind of attention.

America will face terrible difficulties with Muslims in the coming months and years, especially because of having allowed so many to immigrate from the Mideast.  And with those Muslims comes their craving for unconstitutional Islamic social regulation, and the pressure to change our laws and constitutions to accommodate Shari'a law.  Muslims will proselytize Negroes aggressively, beginning in the prisons, then in Negro communities, particularly inner city ghettos, because so many Negroes there feel such animosity against Caucasians as the source of all their problems. And Islam is a religion of underdog rebellion that spreads by warfare to the lower classes of people who feel angry at the more affluent folks, as though someone beside themselves bears responsibility for their poverty. Ghetto Negroes already represent a terrible dilemma for law enforcers, and the outlying citizenry who become victims of ghetto Negro street crimes.  When those ghetto Negroes begin to embrace Islam in large numbers, many will decide to become violent jihadists who will rape, rob, riot, and brutalize as badly as or worse than the Muslim immigrants do now in Europe and Scandinavia.

The time has come for Negro leaders and organizers to exert their influence in an effort to reform the thinking of ghetto Negroes, showing them that their lives really do matter, so that they don't get slaughtered in alarming numbers by those who will oppose their jihadism in the future. 

Negro activists and leaders will reform the intolerably bad behavior of inner cities ghetto Negroes if they think Black Lives Matter.  Otherwise, the activists just blow hot air to get attention they don't deserve because they believe Black lives don't matter at all.

See Jury Instructions for Causes of Action and Elements

Students of law might appreciate the lesson from the dialogue below.

The other day while studying post-Jesinoski opinions regarding TILA rescission, I kept seeing borrowers making what seemed like scatter-brained allegations and legal conclusions in order to stave off foreclosure.  Yes, it SEEMS scatter-brained in retrospect.  I felt like a Monday Morning quarterback like analyzing all the things the losing team did wrong (HOW ABOUT THAT BRONCOS DEFENSE in Superbowl 50!?).  The losing players thought they did the best they could, but clearly they had not adequately trained or planned for the contest they lost.

As with the football game analysis, I wondered how the losers in the court case could have prepared better to win.  At least they shouldn't have written such garbage pleadings, shouldn't they?

This question brought me face to face with the difficulty many litigants have of properly defining the causes of action in their lawsuit, along with the elements and associated facts in support.  And even more importantly, how can they determine in advance that the court will have jurisdiction over the issues?

I wrote to law mentor and litigation consultant Storm Bradford of Mortgage Fraud Examiners.  He responded with the terse explanation you see below my comments on the Cox opinion.  Then he called me to clarify, and guided me to a state court web site for examples, which I shall share below.

Cox had declared bankruptcy, then sued for rescission and a variety of other related things.  The court dismissed his causes of action one after the other with an explanation.  Cox had not understood that the bankruptcy trustee had standing to bring some of the causes, but Cox did not.  But Cox failed to partner with the trustee in the lawsuit.  For the remaining issues, Cox just messed up by failing to state facts in support of elements of the causes.

To: Storm Bradford


Plaintiff's eighth count aims to cancel each of the notes allegedly recorded regarding Plaintiff's purported debt. To state a cancellation claim, a plaintiff must allege that: (1) there is a reasonable apprehension that the instrument left standing might cause serious injury; (2) the instrument is invalid on its face; (3) the instrument is void or voidable; (4) the instrument was in existence or under the defendant's possession and control when the action was filed; and (5) if the interest is voidable rather than void, that plaintiff acted promptly to rescind. Civ. Code §§ 3412, 3413; Hironymous v. Hiatt,52 Cal. App. 727, 731 (1921). Plaintiff's final count seeks to quiet title to the Property.
Defendants argue that Plaintiff has failed to state either claim because she has not alleged that she has tendered the full amount owed. MERS Mot. at 16-17, Old Republic Mot. at 11. "In obtaining rescission or cancellation, the rule is that the complainant is required to do equity, as a condition to his obtaining relief, by restoring to the defendant everything of value which the plaintiff has received in the transaction."Fleming v. Kagan, 189 Cal. App. 2d 791, 796 (1961); see also Karlsen v. Am. Sav. & Loan Ass'n, 15 Cal. App. 3d 112, 117 (1971). Similarly, "a mortgagor of real property cannot, without paying his debt, quiet his title against the mortgagee." Miller v. Provost,26 Cal. App. 4th 1703, 1707 (1994); see also Kelley v. Mortg. Elec. Registration Sys., Inc., 642 F. Supp. 2d 1048, 1057 (N.D. Cal. 2009) While, as discussed above, TILA has extended the timing of this common law practice for TILA rescission claims, it continues to govern common law claims.
Plaintiff responds that the tender requirement for both claims does not apply here because the purported loan is already void pursuant to the rescission. While Plaintiff is correct that California courts have held that the tender rule does not apply when the plaintiff alleges the title documents are void, see Cheung, 987 F. Supp. 2d at 980 (citing Fleming v. Kagan, 189 Cal. App. 2d 791 (1961)), this argument belongs to the estate. Accordingly, the Court GRANTS the Motions to Dismiss Plaintiff's eighth and ninth counts with leave to amend.[11]

This last comment dangles like a remaining shoe after the first one dropped.  The judge leaves us to wonder how the bk trustee could possibly succeed with this argument.  To me it seems that the borrower claimed a TILA violation, a timely notice of rescission, and a consequent voiding of the loan documents without tender, and claimed no tender is required when documents are void.  I never read in the law that TILA operates to void documents.

Regarding this opinion, it makes me acutely aware of the importance of READING CAREFULLY the elements to any cause of action, and specifically stating in the complaint each element and a succinct statement of fact showing fulfillment of that element, and in so doing, particularly identifying the actor, the action, the injury, and the resulting damage.

I recall my confusion about how to plead this when writing my first sample complaint about fraud.  I didn't know where to go to find the precise legal definition along with a succinct statement of the elements and an example.  It just did not seem right that I could only find that information by digging through court opinions.  But in common law issues, one has no choice.  Even the definitions in Black's Law Dictionary come from court opinions.

If I ran things, I would insist that the legislature keep a running list of all the causes of action along with the plain definition, the elements, the recent opinions in support, the typical defenses, and supporting citations from relevant court opinions.  In this modern age, I see no reason to endorse judge-made law.  People should be able to look up the law in statute, and not have to scour court opinions for it.  For that reason, the Uniform Law Commission should undertake a project of bringing together a proposed uniform law stating all the statutory and common law causes of action.  People could use it just like they now use the UCC.

The information you're looking for is in the jury instructions, which we discuss in our exam.

- - - - - - - End of Answer  - - - - - -

What?  Jury Instructions?  How would I ever have known that without intimate involvement in trials?

In fact, the criminal laws and many civil laws such as for torts (e.g., see Florida Statutes Chapter 45) describe what elements constitutes an offense or a cause of action.  But for contracts,  the law specifies a statute of limitation (see Florida Statutes chapter 95) and statute of frauds (Florida Statutes chapter 41) and generally not much else.

Florida attorney Marc A Wites wrote a book entitled Florida Causes of Action.  It delineates the causes, the elements, court opinions supporting the elements, and affirmative defenses.  You might enjoy his  chapter on contracts. He has also provided an online subscription for a reasonable annual fee at

You can also purchase Florida Elements of an Action.  Author Patrick McGinley explains its use in this excerpt from the preface:

Likewise, in the courtroom, a successful claim or defense must have all the right elements if it is to succeed. There is a right way and a wrong way to do any task. A lawsuit is no exception. This book is intended to spell out for you the elements necessary to develop your claims and defenses into winners. To that end, I provide the elements of each cause of action with an explanation of those elements as appropriate. I provide an enumeration of possible defenses to each cause of action. Footnotes provide citations to primary sources that support my contentions. Depending upon the assumed needs of each action, I provide a sample complaint, a sample jury instruction, or a list of secondary sources for further research. I hope that this book helps even the busiest lawyers in creating the perfect claim or defense in the least time possible.

Where else could you get the causes of action and elements, aside from court opinions and searching through statutes?

You can find them by studying standard jury instructions. 

Standard jury instructions guide courts and attorneys in writing jury instructions more specific to their case.  Those instructions guide the jurors in determining whether or not the defendant committed the offense or injury.  Therefore they also guide the litigant in preparing the complaint and the defenses to a complaint.  Moreover, many litigants have lost their cases for failure to submit jury instruction proposals that ensure the jury focuses on the right issues or to keep the jury from focusing on the wrong issues.

I provide for you below some links for standard jury instructions in Florida.

The Grand Jury's English Roots as a Court Appendage

Advocates and engineers of the Common Law Grand Jury (CLGJ) have their work cut out for them.  When they start issuing indictments and presentments and ordering the sheriff to make arrests, they risk prosecution for "simulating legal process."  You can see an example of such a criminal law in Florida Statute 843.0855

CLGJ advocates might want to argue that nothing in the US or Florida constitutions forbids "we the people" from forming and operating a CLGJ to do the normal functions of grand juries - issuing probable cause information in a presentment to the prosecutor, and in some cases blocking prosecution by refusing to issue such information in an indictment.

They might cite the various provisions of Florida Statutes Chapter 905 which articulates how the Grand Jury shall become set up and operate.  They might then argue that nothing in those statutes forbids the establishment and functioning of the CLGJ outside the court's authority.

However, I think they head for certain trouble who set up such a CLGJ.  For my reason I cite three authorities:

1.  Florida Statute 2.01 

"Common law and certain statutes declared in force.—The common and statute laws of England which are of a general and not a local nature, with the exception hereinafter mentioned, down to the 4th day of July, 1776, are declared to be of force in this state; provided, the said statutes and common law be not inconsistent with the Constitution and laws of the United States and the acts of the Legislature of this state. History.—s. 1, Nov. 6, 1829; RS 59; GS 59; RGS 71; CGL 87."

2.  William Blackstone on Criminal Process and Grand Juries .

"An indictment is a written accusation of one or more persons of a crime or misdemesnor, preferred to, and presented upon oath by, a grand jury. To this end the sheriff of every county is bound to return to every session of the peace, and every commission of oyer and terminer, and of general gaol delivery, twenty four good and lawful men of the county, some out of every hundred, to enquire, present, do, and execute all those things, which on the part of our lord the king shall then and there be commanded [Volume 5, Page 252] them."

3.  The SCOTUS opinion in US v Williams 504 US 36 (1992)

"A grand jury is clothed with great independence in many areas, but it remains an appendage of the court, powerless to perform its investigative function without the court's aid, because powerless itself to compel the testimony of witnesses. It is the court's process which summons the witness to attend and give testimony, and it is the court which must compel a witness to testify if, after appearing, he refuses to do so." Brownv. United States, 359 U. S. 41, 49 (1959).

The English law of Florida pretty clearly shows that a Judge in a county empanels the Grand Jury, stretching all the way back to Ethelbert around the year 600 C.E.  Thus, any grand jury operating without a judge having empaneled it thereby operates ultra vires, and subjects its members for prosecution who issue legal process. 

Without issuing legal process, of course, the CLGJ operates merely as a First Amendment club of concerned inhabitants contemplating and discussing issues of interest to them.

How to Survive in Egg and Steak Heaven without a Circulator

Copyright © 25 December 2015 by Bob Hurt. All rights reserved.
Yesterday, I decided to test the slow-cook egg theory (sous vide) without a thermal immersion circulator.  Pressure cooker 2/3 full of reverse osmosis water, upside down bowl on bottom, small dish on top of that, digital thermometer probe lying on the dish between the eggs.
I set the pot on the medium electric range burner and turned the heat to high until the thermometer showed 120 °F, then I turned the heat down to 2.   I swirled the water around with my tongs.  The temperature went up to 130 °F. A few minutes later the heat had risen to 152 °F.  I turned the heat down to 1.5, the temp came down to 146 °F, my target temperature.  I turned it up to slightly less than 2.  The temperature stabilized.
I lowered 3 eggs onto the dish using tongs, leaving them submerged a couple of inches.  I swirled the water again, and set the lid firmly onto the pot, as though I planned to twist-lock it, but I did not twist-lock it.
I let the eggs cook for about an hour.  I removed them from the water.  I used my kitchen knife to chop off the pointy end of each shell about 1/4 down from the point so as not to pierce the yolk. I up-ended each shell and the contents slid out onto a softened dollop of butter.  The whites and yoke seemed a little loose, but not runny.  With a little salt and pepper on top, I had a perfect dish of 3 eggs.
For an eating comparison, I point out that I normally feel still hungry after eating 2 pan-cooked eggs, but sort of sicky, bored, or over-worked when not quite finished eating 3 pan-cooked eggs.  That explains why I normally eat only 2 pan-cooked eggs at a sitting.
Now when I compare the slow-cooked egg eating experience to that of 3 scrambled eggs, or the 3-egg Chef Pepi-style French omelet, or 3 eggs over-easy, or soft-boiled eggs, I honestly prefer my slow-cooked-in-the-shell eggs to any of the other pan-cooked eggs.  The slow-cooked eggs have a perfect, creamy texture in the mouth and a sumptuous, non-raw flavor.  Plus, I didn’t feel bored, or hurry-up-and-get-done, or sicky feeling as I do when working my way through three pan-cooked eggs.
I know what you think:  “That fool drug out a huge pot, dishes, and thermometer, and spent at least an hour and a half cooking 3 eggs the sous vide way without a fancy expensive circulator that keeps the water at a constant temperature surrounding the food. He had to watch that temperature like a hawk the whole time, and had no clue about what burner temperature would keep the water at 151 °F.  He went to all that trouble for 3 eggs!??.  He must have a lot of time on his hands.  What a waste of life!”
Really, I do see your point.  But we’re talking Egg Heaven here, not just garden-variety boiled, scrambled, fried, or omelet eggs.  I imagine that the inventor of the cooking circulator (a standard chemistry laboratory item) for cooking purposes went through the same ordeal as I before deciding to make that circulator.  And you
guessed correctly.  I do have a little time on my hands.
Maybe someday I will buy a circulator when the retail price drops to 50 bucks.
Meanwhile, I shall use the above technique to cook a couple of 2-inch thick strip, rib eye, or tenderloin steaks at 130 ºF (medium rare, the perfect doneness) for 5 hours.  I shall put each steak in its own Ziploc bag and use a drinking straw to suck all the air out before sealing, the cheap-man’s vacuum sealing method.  I shall finish them by grilling them at medium-high temperature for 30 seconds per side.
Right, we’re talking Steak Heaven.

A Newly Bald Man's Perfect Texas Saturday... in Florida

A Newly Bald Man's Perfect Texas Saturday... in Florida

Quasi-Fiction, Copyright (C) 18 December 2015 by Bob Hurt. All rights reserved.

A pair of other men, disgustingly hirsute, gawked at me as they strode past me into the barber shop.

"I dare you to say a word," I muttered under my breath as I walked away from the shop, my freshly balded pate gleaming proudly, nay, brazenly, in the 10 A.M. Perfect Saturday sun.  I felt like a man not to be messed with, in spite of my small frame and slight build.

I sucked on the butterscotch hard candy my barber had handed me as she surveyed her work.  Mimi, my hot, Bronx, bleach-blonde barber, had taunted me with her irresistible cleavage as she assiduously removed every hair on my scalp.  Her lipsticked, pouty mouth seemed as brash as my slickly shaven dome.  "Not a hair out of place," she had smirked, "or rather IN place." She had cackled, and then shaken her sumptuous buttocks to make them quiver lewdly over her handiwork and wisecrack. 

I grinned as I turned over the big engine in my 1970 Caddy convertible.  I pictured how marvelously those tight yoga pants rode up into Mimi's butt crack, leaving almost nothing to my rabid imagination. Mimi, a natural perfectionist, had remained my favorite barber for a decade, ever since I had moved into Clearwater Florida from Silicon Valley to crank the handle on the money machine. 

I loved working as a software/hardware entrepreneur in the fast-paced computer diagnostics development business.  My competitors had grown to fear me and the state-of-the-art software releases in our diagnostics package.  My new, shaven-head look would probably shake them up even more when they saw me at the computer exposition in Hanover Germany this coming March. Judging from our sales, technicians the world over far preferred our PC Clinic diagnostics over competing products. And when it comes to competition, nothing says "Kiss my ass, and give me your best shot" like intentional baldness.  

Within minutes I had grabbed a cup of scalding joe topped with half-and-half at the Dunkin Donuts drive-through.  I set it in the cup holder, cranked up ZZ Top's Sharp Dressed Man on my stereo, caught the on-ramp, and rumbled south on US Highway 19.  I noticed that my hair didn't whip in the breeze as it usually did.  I headed for my appointment with the Tampa Bay Times reporter.  I had a new computer diagnostic test card I wanted him to announce to the world.  I owed him a scoop for helping emcee my Test Theories seminar last month in Tampa. 

As I hit the gas and felt the surge of the beefed-up 500 cubic inch engine under the hood, I reveled in the demonic but heavenly roar of the quad glasspack exhaust system. I had enough power to do wheelies at 100 mph, if I chose to live that dangerously. Nothing sounds or feels quite like sitting at the helm of a steroidal Cadillac convertible at 70 MPH with the top down on the open road, except, perhaps, doing it bald.  Ah, what a marvelous day!

More good times lay ahead of me on this perfect Saturday, events that would parallel those I had enjoyed many times while residing in Houston, Texas. 

I'd finish my appointment in St. Pete around noon, then meet Maria's ex-husband and my fast friend, Eddie, at Fat Boy's Barbeque for ribs, jalapenos, buttered southern cornbread, baked beans, slaw, and iced tea.  Then we'd head over to Top Of The World gaming room for a few matches of pocket billiards.  Eddie, "El Palo Largo" (the big stick), we called him, would discipline me repeatedly in the fine art of running the table.

After the games, we'd meet Willie-T down at the pistol range and spend an hour blasting hot lead at paper-covered metal targets.  I love the sound of bullets making those steel plates clang like a bell.  I spent hours last night reloading the three hundred .45 caliber rounds we'd expend in target practice.  I'd love watching Willie do some of his trick shooting, hitting the target with his eyes shut, and wonder how he does it.

We'd top off our afternoon with a stopover at The Oasis "Sports Bar" for a little topless entertainment by some of our Facebook friends. There we'd also watch UFC reruns while nursing a few brews to take the edge off the day. We'd talk about guns, bullets, cars, and pool, and have a few innocent laughs. Finally, we'd head home for dinner and a date with whoever awaited us.

My darling Maria and our mini-Schnauzer, Dxtr, will greet me at the door, of course.  Dxtr will jump excitedly around on his hind feet to express his delight at my arrival home, and bring me a toy to tug on with him.  Maria will, I imagine, find it impossible not to put her hands on my scalp to feel its smoothness.  If she gets carried away, we might never make it to the dinner table.

But if we do, afterward we'll snuggle up romantically on the couch and watch whatever TV show she fancies.  She won't ask me much about my day because she knows how such Saturdays go.  But she always seems curious about Mimi for some reason. She'll tell me about her adventures and how much she made or lost in the stock market. Before too long we'll both fee drowsy and mosey off to bed. 

And I shall have enjoyed a Perfect Texas Saturday, in sunny Florida.

Oh, how great to experience life, friends, family, and competition with a new and studly look!

I appreciated the Midnight Ride documentary film.  It should have more assiduously emphasized individual and community RESPONSIBILITY, not merely complained about government tyranny that has grown as a consequence of an ignorant and irresponsible electorate.

After long and frequent pondering I have concluded that people cannot support what they have not read and studied and do not understand, in particular the US and State constitutions. 

Therefore as the number one requirement for all oath keepers, the organization should requires that all who would swear or affirm to support a constitution shall first demonstrate competent knowledge of it, particularly the obligations of government and limitations on its power.

It seems axiomatic that bad electors produce bad government.  "Bad elector" means one who will not or cannot KEEP the loyalty oath he swore in order to become a registered voter.  In other words, "bad" means "irresponsible." 

But somehow even the leaders of the OATH KEEPERS organization seem to have forgotten or ignored this axiom.  NO organization like oath keepers should blithely assume that its members have read, studied, and understood the constitutions they swore to support.

I believe every high school should require students to answer 80% of a 100 question constitution competency test correctly, as a requirement for graduation.  And every government should require the same of anyone who would register to vote or take government employment of any kind (from the lawn maintenance crew to the President/Governor), especially legislators and law enforcers.

The USA has a serious problem with average intelligence of various groups.  I have calculated that as many as 25% of the population lacks the cognitive ability to graduate from a high school for which the administrators have not dumbed down the curriculum to allow the cognitively challenged to graduate. 

Under my recommended requirements, those 25% would not or could not pass the constitution competency test, and therefore would never qualify to register to vote or get a government job.  In fact, they do gravitate to crime and welfare abuse to get by in life. Realistically, why should such people ever vote or work for government?

It seems axiomatic that the right to keep and bear arms (to defend oneself against wrongful aggression) should apply to all Americans.  In reality such application makes little sense because that 25% I mentioned above notoriously make wrong decisions followed by wrong actions.  The Congress realized this when passing laws limiting application of the 2nd amendment to exclude children under a certain age, mental incompetents, felons, and illegal aliens.

So, axiomatically, the 2nd Amendment applies only to "RESPONSIBLE" people who have a legal nexus to government. 

I believe it axiomatic that someone too stupid to graduate from high school and pass a constitution competency test should not have unfettered right to keep and bear arms.

In reality, by my observation, such people (the "stupid") bear constant supervision at home, at work, at school, and when on their own.  In other words, they should never become "on their own" because their stupidity will result in their injuring others or becoming the victims of others.

Liberty-loving Americans seem unwilling to admit that responsibility goes hand in glove with liberty.  But we learn as children that we will never get the liberty to drive the family car unsupervised until we show the responsibility to learn the rules of the road, learn to operate the vehicle, and learn to maintain it properly.

Where do we demand such a demonstration of responsibility from those who would keep and bear arms or who would procreate?  Only in the laws, not in the Constitution.  The constitution does not say this, but "We the People" means "We the RESPONSIBLE People."  We must remember that the American colonial governments allowed only free, white, propertied men (in other words, "responsible people") to vote.  But a slough of amendments changed that so that now even children 18, the stupid, the indigent, and other irresponsibles can vote.  That has changed the meaning of  We the Responsible People to include the irresponsible.  That constitutes civilizational insanity, in my opinion, and we can see the result in our governments of today.

My final point:  the right to keep and bear arms should mean the obligation of responsible people to keep and bear arms, as in Switzerland.  Every RESPONSIBLE American should give two years of military service to the nation, and every American who finishes firearms training in the military should have the obligation of keeping a government-issued rifle, shotgun, and pistol, with 1000 rounds of ammunition for each at home, properly locked securely against intruders.  It seems axiomatically that ONLY such a measure will keep the government from growing out of control into an abusive police state.  The people cannot support the constitutions without the physical ability to do it brutally under force of arms.  This means militia organizations need to possess sufficient armament (like police swat teams have) to withstand attack by government, foreign or domestic.

I believe OATH KEEPERS leadership should take a stand on these issues of constitution competency testing for all who would swear an oath, and demonstrable responsibility, including political control, as the cost of liberty.

Sexual Perversion explains Low Muslim IQ?

The average Arab Muslim has an IQ of 81, 4 points lower than the average American Negro, which sits 15 points lower than the average American.  For supporting information, see the attached article by academician Donald Templer, The Mankind Quarterly, Vol. 1, No. 3, Spring 2010

I believe low average IQ explains why so many American Negroes have stupidly embraced Islam as their "religion." 
US Negrord have an average IQ of around 85.  Because of that, fewer than half of US Negroes have the cognitive ability to graduate from a high school that administrators have not dumbed down to accommodate them. 

Adherents to Islam think of themselves as religious because Muhammad, through the Qur'an, promoted monotheism, daily pray, and alms-giving.  But their religion is much more a political system of social regulation than a religion.

Stupidity constitutes the main reason the men and women in Arabic lands tolerate the oppression of Islamic law and social regulation (Shari'a). 

The chief reason for Arab Muslim low IQ:  endogamy. 

Inbreeding became a direct consequence of Muhammad's permissiveness regarding the sexual excesses of Muslim men regarding women (as chattel) and children (both boys and girls).

Ann Barnhardt reads then burns offensive pages
of Qur'an, bookmarked with bacon strips

Qur'an-burner and lecturer Ann Barnhardt sets the record straight on Islam's dangers as a POLITICAL SYSTEM disguised as a religion, AND on Islam's sexual weirdness that most Americans, certainly American women, will HATE.  See Barnhardt's video here:


Barnhardt claims that Muhammad designed Islam to enrich himself (if you want to get rich, start a religion), to rally an army (needed for conquest and pillaging), and to facilitate and legitimize his sexual perversions. 

Islamic clerics have made no secret of the fact that, of his 13 marriages, Muhammad at age 50 married 6-year-old Aisha, the daughter of Muhammad's remote kin, and then consummated the marriage when she turned 9 years of age.  That would land him in prison if he did it today in the USA.  From the American legal  perspective, Muhammad was a sexual deviate, child molester, and criminal.

Barnhardt also pointed out that Shari'a allows Muslims to amputate the clitoris of each daughter, age 2 to 15, and then to amputate the vulval labia and sew the vagina mostly shut.  The men do all this because they don't want the girls to grow up with an enjoyment of sex, and don't want them to go off with other men for sexual pleasure.


Barnhardt explained that the sexual perversion of Islam extends to sodomy and homosexuality, particularly of young boys.

Barnhardt believes the US Government should arrest all Muslims, strip them of US Citizenship, deport them, and block all Muslims from entering the US for any reason whatsoever.  Why?  Because she has proven to her own satisfaction by her study of the Qur'an and various Fatwas (religious doctrines by Muslim clerics) that Muslims generally believe Muhammad wanted to slaughter all infidels (non-Muslims) who would not submit to Islamic social regulation under Shari'a law. 

History shows that many lands have fallen to Islam under military conquest and terrorism.  And now invasions of Europe and the USA by Muslim "refugees" from Islamic terrorism in their home lands threaten every Western government.  In other words, Barnhardt makes excellent points in her expression of moral outrage.

I personally believe that ALL Muslims who fail to take up arms or aggressively support war against jihadists and denounce Islamic social regulation and Shari'a law constitute part of the problem rather than the solution.  I believe that because virtually all Muslims, including the allegedly "peaceable" ones, support Mosques and Islamic clerics through their religious taxes and alms-giving.   And those clerics enforce Shari'a through "religious police" wearing garb like these religious cops in Saudi Arabia.

Barnhardt shows how "peace" means the same to Muslims as it does to Communists.  Peace is the condition that exists when no one opposes the political force of the respective group leaders.  When nobody else opposes Islam, peace exists.  Till then, the Qur'an supports holy jihad in order to slaughter the opposer to bring about peace.

In the face of the points in Barnhardt's lecture, linked above, how do you feel about Judge Carolyn Walker getting sworn in with her hand on the Qur'an?
