Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."

How times have changed.

In Shooting Times, articles by Skeeter Skelton often mentioned "wets".


Of course, these were stories from his days with the Border Patrol around Amado Arizona....so it must have been racist rather than vernacular or colloquialism.....to his credit, he did not refer to anyone as pinche mojados as my high school Hispanic friends did in Southern California.


I can't use any of those words, 'cause I is a white boy.......


ha !

"ad hominem"

that's comical
Some of those throwing the term out there tend to be the worst in it all
Again, I don't view anyone here as someone I wouldn't meet, hell even have too many beers with
in likely truth we are more the same in spirit than we differ.

Yes - mojado or "wet/damp" was how American Citizens of Hispanic decent referred to illegals. Transliterated as "wetback". It wasn't "racist" when the Cesar Chavez worked with the Eisenhower administration to produce the report "What Price Wetback?"

The Hispanic farm workers were upset about how illegals drove down their wages.

Justaracist applies physical characteristics such as these, to intellectual capacity and behavior choices.
You assume visible characteristics aren't also linked to psychological and intellectual traits.

That's because no "real" science suggests they are - only bullshit promulgated by those desperately searching for some "racial superiority".

Like the "science" of Phrenology.

Downs syndrome might be one example. Phrenology is silly but we've all seen a dodgey fellow or two, and immediately know just by looks if trust is valid or not! Take a look at a heavily tatoo'd type with dribble all down their front, or a fat nosed alcoholic that visits the same bar every night and causes unrest! Yep, we all judge a book by its cover - its what attracts us or repells us! Looks do matter - some people just are crazy, and its written all over their face - unless of course they have a mask on antifa style!

This thread reminds me that I have to drive to the store in the morning early and get a pack of smokes before I take a dump. Then take a bath and go to work. I'll grab an egg taco with 2 pieces of bacon. Running out of smokes is not fun driving 20 miles round trip

So, if blacks score an average 80 on the same IQ tests whites score an average 100 on and Asians 105 on, we can't logically assume that the typical physical appearance characteristics of a negro are linked to intelligence since equally dark South Asians do not have all the same defining characteristics and do much better on these same IQ tests, disproving that it is solely pigmentation at work?

So we might conclude that prosperity raises IQ?

How then might we prosper?

Perhaps a geographic location with grand natural resources should produce a grand prosperous people?

Perhaps a genetic predisposition to ambition exists? Who knows?

It does give one time to ponder things other than food and shelter.

Some like Michael Knowles would ague it was the spread of Christianity that brought prosperity. I'm not sure of Christianity, per se, but definitely a Judeo-Christian social structure can't hurt.

Except when run by corrupt tribalists - whether their tribe be ethnic or social.

One could substitute tribalists with Democrats here, methinks, and be just as accurate.

Interesting reference to the Unz Review by the bumstrummer - arguably an anti tribalist positioned site - which would be of course taken as such, dependent on education, religion and race!

It seems that a mathematician, or one that has 'suffered' a Classical education, that contrives an IQ test, is obviously going to measure the not so well educated, against being well educated(adjusted).

IQ results are a generalisation - quantasizing what?

There's many an indigenous Amazonian that has existed in the Jungle, since pre Paracas times. - yes they'd have problems in a city - and of course a high IQ city dweller would simply die in the jungle - having a high IQ would be probably largely useless.
IQ testing is about quantification relative to a set of circumstances - in current times - having the potential to adjust to a post modern society, relative to the age of an individual/group tested.
.
Therefore citing IQ in of itself might arguably be construed as racist by some definition of the word.

Environment plays a huge part, as do any skills acquired for for the maintenance of life within an environment. Consider Thanksgiving!

Some persons have a particularly high Verbal IQ but couldn't screw in a light bulb for fear of electrocution - get a servant/slave to do it.

Ignorance(verbal), is perhaps a measure of an inability to accept something that might lead to a benefit, active ignorance is stupidity - a refusal to learn. So you can have smart stupid people, and stupid smart people. IQ really should be redefined as an - Inability Quotient!

Perhaps from a Darwinian perspective, IQ is measure of a refusal to adapt, to stay tribal, to not assimilate - and to then lash out when challenged!
You see it all the time - don't you?

you can judge a book by it's cover.
post your picture, mark, and i'll do a photo-assesment.

that is called anecdotal evidence, whereas i am talking about causal factors. and yes, i have read the actual study, not just the opinion pieces that reference it that you find on a google search.

again, useless and ineffective aggression rather than a well founded argument in contest.

"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.

Eastern Seabord hmmm.

Google says seaboard, like a plank of wood or a continuous part with no separations between the states.

since buttplumber is limited in understanding to anecdotal evidence, i offer this little tidbit, proof that the average IQ in india is about 70:

https://www.foxnews.com/science/muta...rshipped-india

A mutated goat with a face that looks eerily like a human has been born in India, shocking onlookers.

Images and videos of the mutated mammal have gone viral, The Sun reports. Initially, the deformed mammal perplexed villagers in Nimodia, India, but it is now believed it will be "worshipped as an avatar of God," The Sun added, citing local reports...

Soo...we should just...what? Let the illegal aliens in? Because Justa said something that some people find,"offensive"? I am offended all to hell by illegal aliens. What about my feelings? I cannot think of many ways to be more offensive than by illegally invading someone else's country.

how about lining up for perpetual welfare, driving over little old ladies with stolen cars, chopping little kids into pieces with machetes, and voting illegally?
https://www.breitbart.com/border/202...elderly-texan/
SUGARLAND, Texas — Fort Bend County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a six-time deported Honduran criminal alien on charges connected to the hit-and-run death of an 81-year-old woman. Immigration officials confirmed the illegal alien’s immigration history and the placement of a detainer to prevent his possible release.

“This is just another very sad story about the impact of lax border enforcement on the citizens of our community,” Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls told Breitbart Texas in a phone interview Wednesday morning. “It is shameful.”...

Snake handlers, weird as a Bris - in all reality! I am guessing that more little boys die from a Bris, than loons who handle snakes in their worship! One does it voluntarily - the other doesn't even have a say!

Yep!

On both counts.

Some folks in India do some strange things and have strange ass thoughts about,,,shall we say,,,, deformed goats with wonky faces.

Some folks right here in the good old USA have some rather strange thoughts about playing with snakes in church,,,,or,,,killing themselves when a comet arrives,,,,or drinking the Kool Aid.


Illegal aliens need to be returned to where they came,,,then apply,,and enter the USA legally,,,along with,,take on the shared values of this nation,,and language.

Actually illegal aliens need to pay for the sheep shearing most American taxpayers deal with. Same for damn everyone else living on the dole. I wouldn't give a shit if they were getting the same bill. But much of their crap is black market economy and welfare. Black, white, yellow, red ...you don't or never paid federal tax to get in the system you don't vote on that level.

Did not Trump just issue an EO,,about,,,new folks/new citizens coming in,,,can't take benefits/welfare for five years,,,,or did he just propose that to the congress????

As for cheating the tax man,,,,,,more than enough born here Americans doing that daily.

INA '94 prohibits immigrants from using welfare until after they become citizens or work 40 quarters. it has not been enforced since '94. "sponsors" in family immigration must, by law, show 125% of poverty level income for family size,. including those sponsored, and are legally on the hook for any welfare a person they sponsor uses, but this is rarely enforced. so the law is not the problem. lack of enforcement is the problem.

trump recently ordered a policy that immigrants of all types must bring health care or evidence of ability to procure here. a liberal judge has injuncted that order and it is in appeal now.
