The over-exploitation of fish stocks is leading to growing problems meeting the demand of an expanding population.

Industrial-scale fishing began in the 1950s, and the catches quickly increased. The size of the ocean harvest levelled off between 1980 and 2000 and has since been in decline. In November 2006, the magazine Science published an article by 14 fishery experts. They predicted a “global collapse” of ocean biodiversity due to over-fishing; all species currently fished, they said, would be gone by 2048.

History Shows Decline in Catches

Researchers working on the Census of Marine Life have been looking at historical documents; they are trying to discover how the populations of fish and marine mammals have changed over several centuries. What they’ve found is disturbing.

Among the documents the research team uncovered was one from Sicily in 1153. It describes the North Atlantic as having “animals of such great size that the inhabitants of the islands use their bones and vertebrae in place of wood to build houses.” British documents from the 17th and 18th centuries speak of huge pods of blue whales, orcas, and sharks turning the waters off Cornwall dark with their mass.



Collapse of Canadian Fisheries

Canadians know very well the cost of the destruction of a fishing resource. The Newfoundland cod fishery was closed in the early 1990s because stocks had declined so far the resource was in danger of disappearing altogether. Tens of thousands of jobs were lost and the financial cost was at least $2 billion.

But, people don’t seem to have learned much from that painful lesson. It looks as though the same mistakes that were made on the East Coast have been repeated on the West Coast. Here’s what Mark Hume wrote in The Globe and Mail (August 13, 2009), British Columbia’s “Fraser River is experiencing one of the biggest salmon disasters in recent history with more than nine million sockeye salmon missing.”

Vanishing West Coast Salmon

Each year salmon swim up the Fraser River and its tributaries to spawn and die. In all, they make up 40 separate stocks, linked to the lakes where they return to spawn. The 2005 spawning yielded record numbers of young salmon called smolts; about nine million of them. In 2007, these young smolts returned to the Pacific Ocean and seem to have vanished. They were due to return to spawn in 2009, but about 85 percent of them never showed up.

A century ago, the sockeye salmon run up the Fraser had 40 million fish. The stock has declined to the point where the annual run has numbered less than 10 million over the last decade.

Causes of Decline in Fish Populations

There are several suspected causes almost all of them tied to human activity:

Over-fishing has played a role;

Global warming has caused a rise in the temperature of the Fraser River and the upstream bodies of water where the salmon spawn. Scientists believe the warmer water is causing a die-off; and,

Fishers are pointing the finger of blame at aquaculture. Sea lice are a problem in coastal fish farms and there is evidence the smolts are being infested with these lice as they swim past aquaculture projects.

West Coast Fisheries Closed

In 2007, there was a widespread closure of salmon fisheries when only 1.4 million sockeye returned to the Fraser. In 2008, the run was 1.6 million and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature placed some spawning stocks of Pacific sockeye salmon on its “red list” of threatened species. As a result of the 2009 collapse a judicial inquiry into the problem was set up; it is due to report by May 2011.

Dr. Laura Schlessinger’s Waterloo: Nigga Please

Dr. Laura Schlessinger’s Waterloo: Nigga Please

It is a well-known fact that white people cannot say nigga, nigger (the-word-that-must-not-be-named) or any variation of this racial pejorative. Even using the word “niggardly” is a daring attempt at circumnavigating the nefarious undertones that haunt the term for its similarity to the word that-must-not-be-named.

No, it is advised that white people never, ever utter the term nigger, nigga, nig, ni-gah or whatever slang adaptation of the phrase is uttered by Black people when they self-identify.

Murder, rape or any deviant/abhorrent act that can be imagined pales in comparison to the white person caught dropping a nigger bomb from their mouth. The fallout from this bomb is more radioactive and potent than the nuclear fallout from a hydrogen bomb and the shelf-life of this action lasts eternally. Just ask Michael Richards.

Now another individual dares utter the dreaded word in the company of Black people and for this action a veritable public execution is necessary to demonstrate that no one – not even Mel Gibson – is allowed to say “nigger” except Black people when addressing each other in a playful, mocking or denigrating tone:

Dr. Laura Schlessinger announced Tuesday night that she would end her radio show following her N-word rant last week.

“My contract is up for my radio show at the end of the year and I’ve made the decision not to do radio anymore,” she told Larry King. “The reason is I want to regain my First Amendment rights. I want to be able to say what’s on my mind and in my heart and what I think is helpful and useful without somebody getting angry, some special interest group deciding this is the time to silence a voice of dissent and attack affiliates, attack sponsors. I’m sort of done with that.”

Dr. Laura emphasized that she is “not retiring” but rather just ending her radio show.

“I’m not retiring, I’m not quitting, I feel energized actually,” she said. “Stronger and freer to say the things that I believe need to be said for people in this country.

Here is the transcript of the call:

Newscast Media — Media Matters obtained the audio where Dr. Laura Schlessinger says the word “nigger” 11 times to a caller. Schlessinger wrapped up by telling the caller she had a “chip on her shoulder.” Below is the entire transcrpit:

SCHLESSINGER: Jade, welcome to the program.

CALLER: Hi, Dr. Laura.


CALLER: I’m having an issue with my husband where I’m starting to
grow very resentful of him. I’m black, and he’s white. We’ve been
around some of his friends and family members who start making
racist comments as if I’m not there or if I’m not black. And my
husband ignores those comments, and it hurts my feelings. And he
acts like –

SCHLESSINGER: Well, can you give me an example of a racist
comment? ‘Cause sometimes people are hypersensitive. So tell me
what’s — give me two good examples of racist comments.

CALLER: OK. Last night — good example — we had a neighbor come
over, and this neighbor — when every time he comes over, it’s
always a black comment. It’s, “Oh, well, how do you black people like
doing this?” And, “Do black people really like doing that?” And for a
long time, I would ignore it. But last night, I got to the point where it

SCHLESSINGER: I don’t think that’s racist.

CALLER: Well, the stereotype –

SCHLESSINGER: I don’t think that’s racist. No, I think that —

CALLER: [unintelligible]

SCHLESSINGER: No, no, no. I think that’s — well, listen, without
giving much thought, a lot of blacks voted for Obama simply ’cause
he was half-black. Didn’t matter what he was gonna do in office, it
was a black thing. You gotta know that. That’s not a surprise. Not
everything that somebody says — we had friends over the other
day; we got about 35 people here — the guys who were gonna start
playing basketball. I was going to go out and play basketball. My
bodyguard and my dear friend is a black man. And I said, “White men
can’t jump; I want you on my team.” That was racist? That was

CALLER: How about the N-word? So, the N-word’s been thrown
around –

SCHLESSINGER: Black guys use it all the time. Turn on HBO, listen to
a black comic, and all you hear is nigger, nigger, nigger.

CALLER: That isn’t –

SCHLESSINGER: I don’t get it. If anybody without enough melanin
says it, it’s a horrible thing; but when black people say it, it’s
affectionate. It’s very confusing. Don’t hang up, I want to talk to you
some more. Don’t go away.
I’m Dr. Laura Schlessinger. I’ll be right back.

SCHLESSINGER: I’m Dr. Laura Schlessinger, talking to Jade. What did
you think about during the break, by the way?

CALLER: I was a little caught back by the N-word that you spewed
out, I have to be honest with you. But my point is, race relations —

SCHLESSINGER: Oh, then I guess you don’t watch HBO or listen to
any black comedians.

CALLER: But that doesn’t make it right. I mean, race is a
[unintelligible] –

SCHLESSINGER: My dear, my dear –

CALLER: — since Obama’s been in office –

SCHLESSINGER: — the point I’m trying to make –

CALLER: — racism has come to another level that’s unacceptable.

SCHLESSINGER: Yeah. We’ve got a black man as president, and we
have more complaining about racism than ever. I mean, I think that’s

CALLER: But I think, honestly, because there’s more white people
afraid of a black man taking over the nation.

SCHLESSINGER: They’re afraid.

CALLER: If you want to be honest about it [unintelligible]

SCHLESSINGER: Dear, they voted him in. Only 12 percent of the
population’s black. Whites voted him in.

CALLER: It was the younger generation that did it. It wasn’t the older
white people who did it.


CALLER: It was the younger generation –

SCHLESSINGER: All right. All right.

CALLER: — that did it.

SCHLESSINGER: Chip on your shoulder. I can’t do much about that.

CALLER: It’s not like that.

SCHLESSINGER: Yeah. I think you have too much sensitivity –

CALLER: So it’s OK to say “nigger”?

SCHLESSINGER: — and not enough sense of humor.

CALLER: It’s OK to say that word?

SCHLESSINGER: It depends how it’s said.

CALLER: Is it OK to say that word? Is it ever OK to say that word?

SCHLESSINGER: It’s — it depends how it’s said. Black guys talking to
each other seem to think it’s OK.

CALLER: But you’re not black. They’re not black. My husband is

SCHLESSINGER: Oh, I see. So, a word is restricted to race. Got it.
Can’t do much about that.

CALLER: I can’t believe someone like you is on the radio spewing out
the “nigger” word, and I hope everybody heard it.

SCHLESSINGER: I didn’t spew out the “nigger” word.

CALLER: You said, “Nigger, nigger, nigger.”

SCHLESSINGER: Right, I said that’s what you hear.

CALLER: Everybody heard it.

SCHLESSINGER: Yes, they did.

CALLER: I hope everybody heard it.

SCHLESSINGER: They did, and I’ll say it again –

CALLER: So what makes it OK for you to say the word?

SCHLESSINGER: — nigger, nigger, nigger is what you hear on HB –

CALLER: So what makes it –

SCHLESSINGER: Why don’t you let me finish a sentence?


SCHLESSINGER: Don’t take things out of context. Don’t double N —
NAACP me. Tape the —

CALLER: I know what the NAACP –

SCHLESSINGER: Leave them in context.

CALLER: I know what the N-word means and I know it came from a
white person. And I know the white person made it bad.

SCHLESSINGER: All right. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Can’t have this argument. You know what? If you’re that hypersensitive about color and don’t have a sense of humor, don’t marry out of your race. If you’re going to marry out of your race, people are going to say, “OK, what do blacks think? What do whites think? What do Jews think? What do Catholics think?”

Of course there isn’t a one-think per se. But in general there’s “think.” And what I just heard from Jade is a lot of what I hear from black-think — and it’s really distressting [sic] and disturbing. And to put it in its context, she said the N-word, and I said, on HBO, listening to black comics, you hear “nigger, nigger, nigger.” I didn’t call anybody a nigger. Nice try, Jade. Actually, sucky try.

Need a sense of humor, sense of humor — and answer the question. When somebody says, “What do blacks think?” say, “This is what I think. This is what I read that if you take a poll the majority of blacks think this.” Answer the question and discuss the issue. It’s like we can’t discuss anything without saying there’s -isms?
We have to be able to discuss these things. We’re people — goodness gracious me. Ah — hypersensitivity, OK, which is being bred by black activists. I really thought that once we had a black president, the attempt to demonize whites hating blacks would stop, but it seems to have grown, and I don’t get it. Yes, I do. It’s all about power. I do get it. It’s all about power and that’s sad because what should be in power is not power or righteousness to do good –that should be the greatest power.

Reading the transcripts shows how hypersensitive Black people are when it comes to what qualifies as racist or not.

Nevertheless, when a word is off-limits to one segment of the population, but used freely by another segment of the population, you know you live under tyranny. The price of using the term “nigger”, if you are white, is great; your reputation is ruined, your past comes under scrutiny; and all of your associates are also tarnished because you dared use a forbidden word and by the process of guilt-by-association, bath them in the damning fires of racism.

Black people have no problem using the term nigger as a joyous salutation or a derogatory put-down, constantly showcasing the awesome diversity of the word and its nebulous meaning when a Black person utilizes it in speech.

But a white person even considering to use the phrase? Recall this is a nation where commandeering a Wal-Mart PA system and jokingly stating that “All Black people must leave the store” is grounds for national media attention and an ABP from the police to locate the insidious individual spewing hateful invective.

In the history of rhetoric and speech has one word existed that has caused more heart-ache, grief and pain – heck, it even had a funeral! – than the word-that-must-not-be-named?

White people have been conditioned to recoil in shock and sheer terror at the white person who dares utter the-word-that-must-not-be-named.

White people cower in fear from this word, knowing that to wield this phrase is to invite doom and ruin into ones quarters.

Since it is common knowledge that those who harbor racist views also suffer from a mental illness, it is generally accepted that only those white people who belong in padded rooms would dare use the word-that-must-not-be-named.

Submitting to the power of Black Run America (BRA) means capitulating and acquiescing to this dictum, that the word-that-must-not-be-named can never part from ones thoughts into vocalized form. White people are forbidden from using this confusingly affectionate, yet demeaning term that Black people use liberally in their speech.

The Office satirizes how fearful white people are of the-word-that-must-not-be-named, showing how they have surrendered to BRA’s dominance.

However, the day Black Run America ends, one can only imagine the spectacle of millions upon millions of people celebrating in the streets as the former inhabitants of the Galactic Empire did in Return of the Jedi. The power and fear of the word will be gone, the once lethal Damocles Sword it represents finally made dull and innocent.

Free from the bonds of tyranny and the fear of persecution, millions of people will pull a William Wallace and definitely yell one word. It won’t be ‘freedom‘, though, that these people shout, for the word that comes out of the mouths of millions will signify that freedom is once again in fashion.

The-word-that-must-not-be-named, The-N word, that phrase which haunts those living in 2010 America like a ghost, creating frightful situations whenever white people dare use it, will be yelled in unison signifying the ultimate catharsis.

The potency, the venom of the word only exists because people lack the vision to understand the only antidote to vernacular tyranny is courage.

Mexican Stereotypes, White Outrage

Mexican Stereotypes, White Outrage

According to FOX News, the Democrats’ “Divide and Conquer Strategy” has “Backfire[d]” and Sen. Harry Reid’s “racially-charged campaign comment” has elicited nothing short of a media “uproar.”

The obscene remarks in question were uttered by Reid at a Hispanic gathering promoting English education; they read as follows:

I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican, OK?

I’m, of course, relieved to learn that the Democrats have been foiled in their attemtps to stereotype Mestizos, but it appears that the only people who’ve expressed “outrage” at Reid have been White Republican operatives and FOX News celebrities. In a Google news search, I was unable to find a notable Hispanic who was insulted by Reid’s comments and who also wasn’t Florida senatorial hopeful Marco Rubio.

As the GOP has become the White People’s Party demographically, its various spokesmen have become ever more fearful of pointing out what’s in front of their eyes and ever more eager to play the great game of accusing one’s opponent of “racism.”

Appearing on “Hannity,” Bill Bennett even promised FOX’s viewers that the GOP leadership would soon be even less representative of the people who actually vote for it:  This is a “different Republican Party,” a “very diverse group of people”

While scouring the Internet for outrage, I did come across this short blog by a young, White female conservative, Jenny Erikson, which seems particularly revealing:

Well, I don’t know how anyone can vote based on identity politics. No one should vote for one party or another because they’re Mexican, black, female, or a circus carnie.

I’m not a Republican because I’m a blonde California mom that drinks too much Coke Zero. To say that is to say that Republicans treat my kind of people and other minorities differently than they treat other groups.

The fact is that every single person in the United States is a minority, and impossible to fit into a little box. Statistically speaking, I’m young and a woman, so I should vote Democrat. On the other hand, I’m pro-life and a homeowner, so I should vote Republican.

Democrats love women, but hate anyone against abortion. Democrats say they want kids to get a great education, but then deny the access to it by not allowing school vouchers. How is one supposed to align themselves with a party based on identity politics, when every person is a unique individual made up of a little of this and a little of that?

Republicans don’t play identity politics because they don’t need to. The truth is, Republican Party values are better for everyone, not just select groups of people.

So, Mrs. Erickson, who from all appearances seems to be a bright and thoughtful young woman, is …

  1. pro-life,
  2. devoutly Christian,
  3. Internet savvy,
  4. dedicated to raising her children,
  5. married to a decent guy who pays his mortgage,
  6. interested in free-market solutions to national education problems,
  7. not acquainted with anyone who votes on the basis of identity politics,  …

Jenny EricksonJenny is an individual, to be sure, but she’s deluding herself if she doesn’t recognize that she’s also very, very, very White.  Saying things equivalent to, “I’m a Republican, but then I also play golf and enjoy the novels of Jane Austen,” proves the opposite of what is intended.

Now, one could legitimately criticize Harry Reid for the factual inaccuracy of his remarks: regardless of whether Barack Obama, George W. Bush, or John McCain were in office, mass amnesty would be pursued in Congress and La Raza would be federally funded.

What I don’t understand is how anyone of European heritage would think that the Republican Party supports them. Ok.

Tipping Point Reached

Tipping Point Reached

The Anglosphere tippeth over.

9th August 2010

Just one in ten babies is born to a white British mother in some parts of the country, figures reveal.

The statistics – based on NHS monitoring of the ethnicity and nationality of patients – show a sharp contrast in the backgrounds of new mothers in urban and rural areas.

While white British mothers accounted for just 9.4 per cent of all births in one London health trust, the figure was 97.4 per cent of all births in Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust.

The birth statistics reflect how mothers described themselves, not the ethnicity of the fathers or the babies.

Across all of England’s 150 NHS Trusts there were 652,638 deliveries last year, around six out of ten of them to women who called themselves white British.

But in some trusts serving rural areas more than 95 per cent of mothers fell into that category.

These included Northern Devon with 97.4 per cent, Co Durham and Darlington with 97.1, and Northumbria with 96 per cent.

At the other end of the spectrum, in North West London Hospitals NHS Trust, which covers Harrow, just 9.4 per cent of mothers were white British. Another inner city trust – Sandwell and West Birmingham – had 16.5 per cent. And a little over one in four new mothers were white Britons at Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospital in central London.

The proportion of mothers of white British origin at Bradford Teaching Hospitals trust was 34 per cent.

(As of 2001, only two percent of marriages in Britain were interracial, so the Mail‘s statistics regarding White motherhood accurately reflect the coming demographics of the Kingdom.)

“America Alone!” types — who indulge in Schadenfreude over Europe’s Muslim situation and tell themselves that the conservative U.S. will stand strong against the world — should be reminded that in Britain 62 percent of births are to White mothers, whereas in America the number is just over 50. Indeed, the countdown to the point at which “minority” births will comprise the majority of total births in the country will likely end sometime this fall.

Caucasian women increasingly are delaying having children and having smaller families, while growing numbers of Hispanic women are having large families at conventional child-bearing ages, according to a new demographic study. If trends continue, America is on course to have a white minority by 2050.

“Census projections suggest America may become a minority-majority country by the middle of the century,” said Kenneth Johnson, a sociology professor at the University of New Hampshire who researched many of the racial trends in a paper released this week.

Whites currently make up two-thirds of the total US population, but the number of white women of prime child-bearing age – 20-39 years old – is in decline, dropping 19 per cent from 1990.

Minorities made up 48 per cent of US children born in 2008, compared with 37 per cent in 1990. Broken down by race, about 52 per cent of babies born in 2008 were white, compared with about 25 per cent who were Hispanic, 15 per cent black and four per cent Asian.

Another four per cent were identified by their parents as multiracial. The numbers highlight the nation’s growing racial and age divide, seen in pockets of communities across the country, which could heighten tensions in current debates on policies ranging from immigration reform and education to health care and social security.

According to the figures analysed by the University of New Hampshire, roughly one in 10 of the nation’s 3,142 counties already has minority populations greater than 50 per cent. But one in four communities has more minority children than white children or is nearing that point.

The researchers found that the fertility rate was higher among Hispanics, who had an average of three children per woman, than among non-Hispanic white women, who had an average of just under two children (1.87) each. Fertility rates among other minority groups were quite similar to whites.

Black fertility had declined significantly in recent years, with African-American women now averaging 2.13 children.

Both of these reports indicate that the Anglosphere is fragmenting into a checkerboard of White and Brown: places like Durham, for example, are overwhelmingly Anglo-Saxon, whereas North West London has essentially been ceded to newcomers. The States, too, have suburban and rural “Whitopias” that reflect the demographics of a long-gone America. But then the flip side of Diversity is that politicians will attempt to contain this fragmentation within a “national” framework: incomes will be taxed, wealth redistributed, access to public facilities equalized, and careers promoted and retarded all in the hope of creating a homogenous “people.”

And you can imagine which individual Britons are going to lose in such an arrangement.

I sometime get the sense that many immigration restrictionists in the U.S. think that at some point between 2040-2050, a load buzzer will go off announcing that America is now officially a White-minority nation, and the country will promptly begin a swift economic and political decline. But reality doesn’t work that way. And here a financial metaphor is apt. Companies don’t declare bankruptcy and then see their stock prices fall precipitously as a result. Markets are discounting and predictive mechanisms, and prices immediately reflect dangers far off on the horizon.

For the Anglosphere, the future is now.
