Oppress ’Em While You Got ’Em

Champagne nightmares.

To the Teabagger who asked when she could get her country back, here’s the answer: She still has two generations to ruin it for everyone else.

The country’s financial meltdown and post-Sept. 11 immigration enforcement have slowed the growth of minority groups here. If those conditions remain the norm, whites would make up the majority of the population until 2050, eight years later than previously projected.

That’s according to a report from the Fascism Accountability Office Census Bureau, which also delays the projected 400 million citizens from 2039 until whenever.

For comparison, we’re at 308 million souls right now, two-thirds of which are real Americans. You don’t know whining until we Eurotrash-Americans lose even that substantial margin.

White Americans’ majority to continue until 2050, report says [LAT]

T/J Baked has had a real blow. You might want to look on FB.


Douchebaggery, via the W.

Oh, and on thread: Don’t look at me. I’ve been doing my best to make sure our new, delicious, honey-brown overlords feel welcome and, ah, fulfilled for the last 20 years.

@Capt Howdy: Alas, it is serious.

This is great news! Something to talk about with my racist relatives over Christmas.

@homofascist: The OH grew up in Jamaica and when he first moved to London was looking for digs and told a prospective landlady that he had Jamaican friends who would be visiting. She wanted to know were they colored and if so how colored. She wanted him to find a shade somewhere in the woodwork that matched their skin tone. As soon as his motor function returned he got himself out of the house.

By the way Danny Tanner (Tan-ner. Get it?) is my Jersey Shore nickname as determined by the Jersey Shore Nickname Generator.

Son of RML was sick as a dog over the weekend. I looked at him and said, “You look like all the Indian and Hispanic got drained out of you,” which got a crooked grin out of him.

Dept of Bum Your Shit Out: “The class warfare is over — we lost,” Kucinich said before the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. “I want to make that announcement today. Working people lost. The middle class lost.”


@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches: A brown trout has a beautiful golden belly. You could also get a nice flush with a couple of T10 martinis.

@Benedick is Danny Tanner, SanFranLefty: For those of us who don’t FB, can you give us a hint?

@Pedonator: Baked’s pupster went to doggy heaven today, only a few months after her other doggy died.

@SanFranLefty: Damn, that is harsh.

Very sorry baked. I hope you’re remembering all the good times.

@Pedonator: And she adored him. A beautiful Borzoi. He died very suddenly.

nojo, let me point out that these projections are based on data collected over the past 8 years when undercounting the poor and non-white populations was national policy. Assuming the 2010 Census does a better job of counting everyone who is actually here, I would bet these figures are understating the approaching White minority by decades. By the way, White on these charts includes most people of Hispanic origin as well.

Another factor not mentioned is age. A lot of these White people are going to be too young to worship St. Ronnie and will be much more integrated into the global culture than their aging Teabagger grandparents.

@Dave H: Good points, especially about the systemic undercounting.

But my understanding (not detailed above) is that “non-Hispanic whites” are being projected to slip below 50 percent by 2050. Also not noted above is that fogeys are projected to encompass a quarter of the population. Presuming the face of the earth hasn’t melted like an Indiana Jones nazi by then, healthcare politics are gonna be really fun.

@Dave H:

That last bit sounded suspiciously like hope, bucko. Be careful, hope talk ken get you bit ’round these parts.

@nojo: Table 6 shows the 2010 estimate of White is 66.97% of the Not Hispanic population. However, since the Not Hispanic population is only 85.66% of the total, you have to multiply the two percentages together. The White Not Hispanic population is currently estimated at 57.37% of the total with consistent minority undercounting since the Gingrich Revolution.

By 2050 even with these slanted figures the White Not Hispanic population is 57.79% of the by-then 79.07% of the total or only 45.68% of the entire population.

Then recall what Mark Twain memorably wrote about statistics.

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches: Since I’m going to get bit sooner or later anyway then please allow me to wallow in hope just as long as possible. I’d much rather be hopeful and later be disappointed than to always expect the worst and later be proved correct.

@Dave H: I’m so glad you’re back!!!! We don’t have to get married right off. We could date for a week or so if that suits.

@Dave H: Well, that’s what I get for relying on the LAT summary and not looking at the report itself. I was more preoccupied deciding between Lawrence Welk and the Osmonds.

Is that a Fender Jaguar that Welk’s guitar player is holding? Can I have it?

@Benedick is Danny Tanner: Thanks but your new Danny Tanner persona is creeping me out. I think it reminds me too much of Robert Urich’s old show Vega$ in which his character was Dan Tanna. Or maybe it’s reminding me of Tanner the foul mouthed shortstop in the original Bad News Bears. Even, God help me, maybe Danny Zuko.

I need mind bleach and I need it NOW!

@Dave H: Yo. Broheim. I’m gettin’ in tight with my inner guido, bra! Party on!
