Triteleia Laxa gets the ball rolling on questions about cryptocurrencies: There can only ever be ~21 million Bitcoin, ergo it is by definition ultimately inflation-proof. But where are the limits on how many bitcoin wannabes can be introduced? There are already over 5,000 of them. Ethereum is approaching half of Bitcoin's market cap. A couple... Read More
Personal income in the US grew over 20% from February to March. March of 2021, the last month for which full data are available, was the most lucrative month in American history in terms of personal income--by a long shot! Not at all unrelatedly, March also set a new all time record trade deficit. The... Read More
If they control the media, they don't do a very good job controlling perceptions of the media! It's said critique is their thing, so maybe that's it: In seriousness, class matters. It's a big club and most of us, including most Jews, ain't in it. General Social Survey variables used: CONPRESS, YEAR, RELIG(3)
From Donald Trump's swearing in January 201 through the Spring of 2020, public opinion on whether racial relations were getting better or worse in the US improved from a net worse of 65% to a net worse of just 24%. Perceived net racial acrimony was reduced to a third of what it had been three... Read More
In 2004, the General Social Survey asked respondents to identify from a list of ten the three most important personal attributes or characteristics for describing who they are. The percentages who identified "racial or ethnic background" among the top three, by, well, racial or ethnic background: One of the major objectives of Wokeism in general... Read More
And nobody but blacks dig the Democrats: All that talk from the GOP aimed at convincing blacks how the Democrat party keeps them on the plantation has been really effective. Party of Lincoln, freed the slaves! Frank Luntz and Karl Rove are geniuses. The unimpressive Republican figure among conservatives is arrived at by way of... Read More
Wency shares his impressions of aspiring members of the managerial class: My experience with actual top corporate leadership has been limited outside of extremely formal contexts, but I went to a reasonably elite MBA school, and most of my classmates went on to corporate work. None are CEOs of Fortune 500 companies yet (I follow... Read More
As previously noted, both men and women who self-identify as bisexual tend to have significantly more opposite sex partners than they have partners of the same sex as their own. For men and women who self-identify as "gay, lesbian, or homosexual", same sex partners are overwhelmingly more common and substantially more common, respectively: Some L... Read More
The median number of sexual partners among bisexuals, by sex of the respondent and the number of partners of each sex he or she has had since turning eighteen: Is it that those who have experimented at some point with someone of the same sex who otherwise pursue members of the opposite sex describe themselves... Read More
The following graph shows how positively (or negatively) Americans, by partisan affiliation, view several other countries: The most striking thing is how much the Establishment's bipartisan foreign policy consensus is shared by an allegedly increasingly restless, increasingly populist electorate. There are huge partisan divides on domestic issues like immigration, abortion, and race relations. But when... Read More
In the process of sleuthing through political campaign donations by industry to show how absurd the idea that Republicans are the party of Corporate America is, we stumble across an interesting albeit small industrial category: "Pro-Israel". Given the pro-Palestinian sentiments among many rank-and-file Democrat voters, the influence of Christian Zionism among rank-and-file Republicans, president Trump's... Read More
The blog's raison d'etre is to empirically assess the (in)validity of stereotypes. File this one in the valid drawer: Because expanding the definition of marriage from being a union between two members of opposite sexes to being a union between two people had nothing to do with redefining the the parameters and expectations of the... Read More
Like everything else in modern America, the Covid poke or parry is highly partisan: If there is a Covid kill switch, too many deplorables are going to escape it. If refusing to take the jab is playing Russian roulette with one's health, too many deplorables are going to... die? That doesn't sound like an outcome... Read More
A performatively bemused iffen struggles to understand why mob justice is bad when it comes to democracy but good when it comes to crime: Who? Whom? part ∞ More than six months out from the presidential election and 3-in-4 Republicans and 2-in-5 independents do not perceive president Joe Biden's victory as legitimate: That figure has... Read More
All this talk about emotional exhaustion is hard for white guys who've worked rail lines, for moving companies, on construction sites and all manner of other physically demanding jobs to understand. Calloused hands, sore backs, and sweat-stained undershirts--those are the consequences of exhaustion. Or so they think. But it's nothing compared to the emotional exhaustion... Read More
To the assertion: dfordoom responded: It's a good point, one the blog is fond of making. The leveling impulse still motivates many contemporary progressives, but it has been coopted and repurposed by the neo-liberal establishment for use in their relentless consolidation of cultural, political, financial, legal, and military power. And in an increasingly atomized world,... Read More
After the mop up operations were complete and the last incalcitrant resisters snuffed out in the Culture War battle over transgenderism, this blog suspected the next front in the siege on sexual mores would be against the presumption of at least serial monogamy. The celebration of open relationships is on the way! That doesn't look... Read More
Big business and the culture wars, a marriage made in heaven: Forget Democratic Socialism, the arc of history bends towards Woke Capitalism:
The ACAB position is a minority one, even among Democrats, but time is on its side: This poll was conducted a few days before the Derek Chauvin verdict. Whatever the outcome means for ACAB, it is at this point hard not to think at the very least ACAF--all cops are fools. Why would a man... Read More
As if the imploding American empire doesn't have enough explosives along its foundations as is, there has been a marked bipartisan increase in hostility towards the world's ascendant second pole over the last four years: The setup for a spectacular American collapse is nearly complete. If China makes a move on Taiwan, a move on... Read More
Wency inadvertently makes an Israel-as-crusader-state argument: The Kingdom of Jerusalem provided (relatively) safe passage for pilgrimages eight centuries ago. When it collapsed, those pilgrimages became less safe. The crusader states were economic sinkholes. Unlike true colonies that enriched the empire at home, European monarchs spent a couple of centuries promising more men and money to... Read More
Observing the horrifying behavior of a 13 year old callously taking the life of a man she didn't know in a carjacking gone wrong, songbird wonders if a little early life corporal intervention could have kept her off the homicidal path she ended up going down: Blacks are more supportive of physically disciplining children than... Read More
Support for or opposition to Black Lives Matter is now a marginally better predictor of whether a person is a Democrat or a Republican than who he voted for is: Exit polling shows 5% of Democrats and 6% of Republicans voted for Trump and Biden, respectively. But just 3% of Democrats express a negative view... Read More
The latest expiration date for the national eviction moratorium, set by the CDC (!) is July 1. Over the last six months, an average of 5.9% of renters have failed to make rent. Over the same six month period one year ago, 4.0% failed to do so. That's a nearly 50% increase in payment delinquencies... Read More
All the corporatocracy had to do to neutralize the Occupy Wall Street movement was signal support for Wokeism. We'll cheer on transgender athletes and BIPOC Ivy League graduates, you let us grind the working and middle classes into the dirt while enacting the largest upward transfers of wealth in the history of the world. Deal?... Read More
Then: Now: Devoted to the cause or aren't you? To the front, then, soldier!
Peaceful parenting is slowly but steadily gaining acceptance: There is no greater power disparity than that which exists between parent and child. An abused wife can leave her abusive husband and take most of his stuff on the way out. An abused drug pusher can turn his contentious encounter with the police into a winning... Read More
Twinkie on health care: That sounds a lot like auto insurance. If companies provided auto insurance and in turn auto insurance covered oil changes and tire rotations, it'd be a lot more expensive, too. What about the relatively novel subscription model? It has exploded from nothing to hundreds of primary care facilities in the span... Read More
If it is necessary to calibrate the climate, calibrating it through technology rather than by Luddism is the preferable way to go about it: On the other hand, Bill Gates is critical of cryptocurrencies. Energy is a big cost to the blockchain: If the sun provides less light, electricity will have to provide more! Elon... Read More
The grass isn't greener on the other side, it's greener right where you are: The corporate media deserves a lot of blame for indefatigably fanning the flames of racial discord as a matter of policy. Certain situations are sensationalized, others effectively ignored, and nothing is ever put in proper perspective. But this also suggests decentralization... Read More
Just one-in-four Americans following--or not following--the Chauvin case from the sidelines have suspended judgment on the outcome of the trial until the jury deliberates and presents its verdict: Sitting in judgment as a man's life hangs in the balance would be hard enough when being presented, without distraction, with the best prosecutorial and defense cases... Read More
Put voter ID up for a national vote and it will win in a landslide: Joe Biden may say it's more restrictive than Jim Crow, but almost nobody believes him, including black Americans. Nobody does because it's obviously not. Everyone knows it's nearly impossible to function in modern America without photo identification. No bank accounts,... Read More
The percentages of people, by selected demographic characteristics, who describe those who display American flags on their homes or vehicles as "racist": One-in-five "very liberal" people view the American flag as a racist symbol, as do one-in-eight blacks and one-in-nine people under the age of 35. The stars and stripes haven't suffered the same fate... Read More
Wency on how entrepreneurial evangelicals have outhustled corporate Catholics. Profiting from (and for!) the prophet: It's drying up for both. A shame, for we could use as many good explications of how the new covenant meant an end to offering sacrifices as the country prepares to offer up a human sacrifice in another futile attempt... Read More
When it comes to liking themselves as individuals, blacks come out on top and whites on bottom: If a man doesn't like himself, why should he expect others to like him? What does he know that they don't? Quoth Broken Record Man, we’re told society pedestalizes whites while causing people of color to feel bad... Read More
Trust in American institutions is in secular decline. One salient exception to this trend is the US military. The way the military was regarded and soldiers treated after Vietnam is a far cry from how it's regarded and they are treated today: Following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the obliteration of Iraqi forces... Read More
In terms of physical appearance, do you think you are more attractive than average, average, or less attractive than average?: The white distribution approximates a normal one. The non-white distributions display various levels of Lake Wobegon effect. We're told society pedestalizes whites while causing people of color to feel bad about themselves. The data say... Read More
Okay, the left has shifted drastically from moderate immigration restrictionism to something approaching open borders in the span of less than two decades, but the country's demographics have changed over that time, too. Immigration begets support for more immigration, and immigrants to America tend to be on the political left: Fair enough, there is a... Read More
Until Donald Trump temporarily renewed the left's faith in the corporate media, the integrity trajectory was down, down, down for the merchants of mendacity: The media's knob-slobbering, ring-kissing, bootlicking deference to and running interference for the Biden administration isn't going to sustain liberals in the same way their acrimony towards Trump did. That blue line... Read More
John Johnson offers pithy relationship advice: More charitably, it will tend to be differences in interests rather than the woman being inherently boring. A man's best friend should be neither his dog nor his wife. It should be another man. Nebulafox on the state of the GOP and where it must go from here: One... Read More
Sensational stories like these aren't the blog's beat, but this tragedy so trenchantly captures the country's decline it compels comment: Two black girls kill a Pakistani immigrant in the heart of the imperial capital while thousands of National Guard troops occupying the city to allegedly protect democracy against elusive white supremacists who must somehow be... Read More
The following table and graph show per capita* hate crime incidents by state for 2019 as reported by the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting program: State Hate 1) District of Columbia 314.6 2) Washington 71.4 3) New Mexico 61.0 4) Massachusetts 57.3 5) New Jersey 54.6 6) Vermont 52.5 7) Michigan 43.5 8) Oregon 43.1 9)... Read More
The following graph shows the percentages of respondents (listed along the horizontal axis) who say members of putative victim groups (color-coded near the top) are either discriminated against "a great deal" or "a fair amount". Residual percentages describe the amount of discrimination they faced as either "not much" or "none at all". So for example,... Read More
Percentages professing support for maximum pro-choice permisiveness, defined as making it legal for a woman to have an abortion "for any reason", by social class: GSS variables used: ABANY, CLASS, YEAR(2008-2018)
Wency shares an interesting observation: Belief or lack thereof in God strongly correlates with belief or lack thereof in the sanctity of the unborn: This provides a pretense to dig a little deeper into the GSS to shed some light on an admittedly mostly academic question. Pro-choice percentages, defined as agreeing that a woman should... Read More
Hogging of the spotlight aside, gun control isn't something zoomers are much interested in: Whites are more tolerant of gun ownership than non-whites, younger cohorts are less white than older cohorts, and yet younger cohorts are still less supportive of second amendment restrictions than old folks are. For better or worse, America will remain a... Read More
Read into this what you will, if anything: One-quarter of respondents were indifferent or answered "not sure". Their responses are excluded such that the residuals represent "bad thing" percentages. This blogger reads it as yet another indication young people are chafing under the current system. The neo-liberal establishment's mix of liberal democracy and corporatism isn't... Read More
Immigration restrictionism has lost its populist appeal. It is increasingly becoming a distinctly partisan issue. The following graphs track sentiments over time by political orientation: It's hard to fathom that less than twenty years ago, liberals were more than three times as likely to say immigration to the US should be decreased as they were... Read More
It's easier to eat a bowl of M&Ms than a bowl of broccoli, easier to watch TV than hit the gym, easier to fap to a screen than find a mate who knows what you mean. But from pressure comes power, from stress comes strength. Nothing happens to any man that he is not fitted... Read More
