USA; Whites the new Minority!

Eight of the largest metropolitan regions in America have seen a decline in the percentage of white inhabitants over the last decade, signaling a majority of minorities in some of the USA’s biggest hubs, including New York and DC.

New census data analyzed by the Washington Post reveal that non-Hispanic whites are now a minority in 22 of the 100 biggest urban areas in America. While metropolises such as Los Angeles, San Antonio and San Francisco have seen minority-majorities prior to 2010, now NYC, San Diego, Las Vegas and Memphis have witness the change firsthand, as Black, Asian and Hispanic populations in those areas outnumber that of white residents.

The data suggests that the population of whites shrank in only 42 of the 100 cities profiled, but each one of the metro regions saw an overall decline in the percentage of whites per capita.

Researchers say that the generally younger crowd of Hispanics and Asians outnumber the percentage of whites still in their childbearing years, and are thus reproducing at a greater rate. Eight percent of adults in America over the age of 65, for example, are non-Hispanic whites. Preliminary data from the 2010 US census revealed earlier this year that the number non-Hispanic white children being born in America had taken a backseat to an increase in minority births in the last decade, and that whites would become the minority by the roughly 2050. In some of the largest cities in America, however, that change has already occurred.

While the change is mostly evident in large cities itself, the change is showing up more and more in the outlying suburbs of the metropolitan regions. In metropolitan areas, minorities were responsible for 98 percent of the population growth in the decade leading up to the 2010 census.

“What’s happened is pivotal,” says demographer William Frey of the Brookings Institution who conducted the analysis. “Large metropolitan areas will be the laboratories for change. The measures they take to help minorities assimilate and become part of the labor force will be studied by other parts of the country that are whiter and haven’t been touched as much by the change.”

 

Workforce aside, demographers note that that the politics associated with minority groups could show a change in control in some formerly white-dominated locales. The Post notes that in Fairfax, Virginia, for example, a moderate Republican community has switched over to a Democratic-minded city. In the Northern Virginia Regional School District, enrollment between 1995 and 2010 rose by nearly 119,000, though only 1,000 of those students were white.

Riots in America, Could Happen!

When there is a President such as Obama, anything can happen to the USA. He is hell-bent on its’ destruction, and ultimate bankruptcy. His famous words “YES WE CAN” was never defined as a good thing, and this has become a flagrant rant of smoke. And where there is smoke usually you can find a fire!

With civil unrest spreading into the western world, the USis readying what to do should mass riots break out state-side.

Is this going to America?

What exactly is the official plan of action should the government need to step in and squash demonstrators? Send the military after minorities.

“If what happened in London ever happened in the US, the military has plans – CONPLAN 3501 and 3502 – to suppress the insurrection,” writes Ambinder. The instructions contained with the CONPLAN guidelines are believed to be initiatives that the US can enact during times of domestic disturbances.

According to GlobalSecurity.org, CONPLAN 3502 is what the military can put into play if state and local authorities are subjected to mass rioting. They say that the instructions in CONPLAN 3502 outline that “Tasks performed by military forces may include joint patrolling with law enforcement officers; securing key buildings, memorials, intersections and bridges; and acting as a quick reaction force.”

Article I, Section 8 of the US Constitution allows Congress to employ the military if necessary to keep order in America. Explicitly, the legislation states that “Congress shall have power… to provide for calling forth the Militia to execute laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections, and repel Invasion.” Though the lingo contained within the US Constitution is by 200-some-odd years, in today’s terms “militia” would apply to the US Armed Forces.

The Atlantic Wire reports that many believe that the CONPLAN initiatives were used with constitutional support in recent years, dating back to the 1992 LA Riots and perhaps as recently as the panic that followed Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

Nate Jones of the National Security Archive says that the instructions aligned to the CONPLAN initiatives shockingly instruct military personnel that minorities should be monitored to gauge an outbreak of violence. In the documents, “indicators” or rioting includes high unemployment rates among minorities, increased crime rates among minorities, protests arising from income disparities between minorities and majorities and declining rapport between authorities and minorities, among others.

In other words — as long as inequality exists in America, rioting is always on the horizon

Keeping a mistress is just like playing golf!

The increasing popularity of “ernai,” or mistresses among wealthy men is emerging as a problem in Chinese society, the New York Times reported on Wednesday.

Amid the rapid development of the country’s economy, large numbers of those fortunate enough to enjoy the prosperity are having affairs with mistresses, making it the symbol of the rich. “Keeping a mistress is just like playing golf,” a man told the New York Times concerning the issue, adding “both are expensive hobbies.” Those seeking such liaisons offer lavishing apartments or cars as well as monthly allowances.

However, the public is angered by the trend. Chinese prosecutors believe about 90 percent of governmental executives accused of corruption have mistresses, sometimes more than 10.

In December a government employee allegedly murdered his mistresses and abandoned the body in a river when she asked for $3 million in return for putting an end to the relationship.

Zheng Beichin, a lawyer who had defended a mistress, told the New York Times “the nation’s elite, including judges and government officials, have little desire to tinker with the status quo.” Meanwhile, a similar phenomenon exists in Korea covertly under the name of “sponsor contract,” where rich men give money and a home to women in return for relationships.

Whilst, this sounds so innocent on the outside, it is rather malicious and immoral. Marriage, is supposed to be, between a husband and his wife, which does not include a Mistress. This is know in the free-world as adultery, and grounds for divorce in many countries. Yet, in Asia it is rather the norm. Does this mean that Asian Women or incapable of maintaining the loyalty and fidelity of their husbands, or is this simply, an indication that the husbands are free to roam the streets and pick up whatever is walking around the sidewalks? Perhaps I should say whatever is hanging out in the Hotel Bars or is provided by some Escort agencies.

Perhaps this is an action for alienation of affection which, does not require proof of extramarital sex. An alienation claim is difficult to establish because it comprises several elements and there are several defenses. To succeed on an alienation claim, the plaintiff has to show that the marriage entailed love between the spouses in some degree;  the spousal love was alienated and destroyed; and defendant‘s malicious conduct contributed to or caused the loss of affection.

It is not necessary to show that the defendant set out to destroy the marital relationship, but only that he or she intentionally engaged in acts which would foreseeably impact on the marriage. Thus, defendant has a defense against an alienation claim where it can be shown that defendant did not know that the object of his or her affections was in fact married. It is not a defense that the non-innocent spouse consented to defendant’s conduct. But it might be a defense that the defendant was not the active and aggressive seducer. If defendant’s conduct was somehow inadvertent, the plaintiff would be unable to show intentional or malicious action. But prior marital problems do not establish a defense unless such unhappiness had reached a level of negating love between the spouses. And this is a mouthful to digest.

United States the Parasite on Global Economy!

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin accused the United States Monday of living beyond its means “like a parasite” on the global economy and said dollar dominance was a threat to the financial markets.

“They are living beyond their means and shifting a part of the weight of their problems to the world economy,” Putin told the pro-Kremlin youth group Nashi while touring its lakeside summer camp some five hours drive north of Moscow.

 “They are living like parasites off the global economy and their monopoly of the dollar,” Putin said at the open-air meeting with admiring young Russians in what looked like early campaigning before parliamentary and presidential polls.

 US President Barack Obama earlier announced a last-ditch deal to cut about $2.4 trillion from the U.S. deficit over a decade, avoid a crushing debt default and stave off the risk that the nation’s AAA credit rating would be downgraded.

The deal initially soothed anxieties and led Russian stocks to jump to three-month highs, but jitters remained over the possibility of a credit downgrade.

 “Thank god,” Putin said, “that they had enough common sense and responsibility to make a balanced decision.” But Putin, who has often criticized the United States’ foreign exchange policy, noted that Russia holds a large amount of U.S. bonds and treasuries. “If over there (in America) there is a systemic malfunction,this will affect everyone,” Putin told the young Russians.

“Countries like Russia and China hold a significant part of their reserves in American securities … There should be other reserve currencies.”

 U.S.-Russian ties soured during Putin’s 2000-2008 presidency but have warmed significantly since his protégé and successor President Dmitry Medvedev responded to Obama’s stated desire for a “reset” in bilateral relations.

Casually dressed in khaki trousers and a striped white shirt, Putin flew by helicopter to the tented camp as part of a string of appearances that are being closely watched in the run-up to the elections.

 He did not say whether he plans a return to the Kremlin or will stand aside for Medvedev, his partner in Russia’s leadership tandem, to run for a second term. But young people crowding round Putin, caught up in the campaigning spirit created by huge portraits of Putin hung from trees, were not shy about saying who they wanted as president. “Russia’s next president will be small, bald and look like Putin,” 17-year-old Ilya Mzokov joked with reporters. Asked why Medvedev was not paying a visit to the summer camp, he said: “Only serious people come here.”

Youngsters chanted Putin’s name and applauded his remarks as he strolled round the camp, where US-style business seminars, extreme sports and political mudslinging were among the topics on offer.

Putin, whose macho image appeals to many Russians, briefly swung himself up the first half of a climbing wall, filmed by a gaggle of state television cameras. 

Nashi, which means “Our People,” was created by the Kremlin to counter popular dissent after youth activism helped topple a pro-Moscow government in Ukraine’s 2005 Orange revolution. The group has worked to spread a personality cult around Putin and regularly campaigns against Kremlin critics.

Opinion polls show Putin, still widely viewed as the country’s paramount leader, retains near 70 percent approval. But his United Russia party is trying to reverse a slide in popularity before December parliamentary polls, hoping to use a strong showing there to help Putin in the March 2012 presidential vote.
