Gleanings From the Current Scene…(Politically Uncorrected)

What Me Worry ObamaA live baby made news, not only Dr. Gosnell’s dead ones. Baby will explain. We’ve been hearing recently that kids belong to everyone, not just to parents, right? Evidently that’s now enforceable, at least in some places with the local cops doing the enforcing.. Instead of abortions, why not instruct reluctant mothers-to-be to just drop the kid off in a basket at the local police station?

What do you do with a bunch of 70 ton Abrams tanks that you don’t want? The U.S. Army is facing that issue as its ‘friends’ in Congress need contributions from tank makers at a time when the Army has no use for and can’t afford, all the tanks that it already has. The Army also has better uses for the money, but Congress apparently hasn’t. One wonders at times, whose side Congress supports.

Syria seems stuck in our Prez’s craw and one can see why. If he keeps to his own business, that helps a brutal dictatorship (the Assads) and makes the Prez appear not to care about the Syrian (mostly Arab Moslem) people who are currently taking it in the shorts from the government’s army. If he jumps in to help the rebels, he’s on the side of al-Qaeda and Iranian client Hezbollah who are important rebel fighters. Our Prez can’t win for losing, seems like. A poison gas facility contested by both sides was conveniently bombed by the Israelis over the weekend, depriving Assad and al-Qaeda of the poison gas and Obama of the need for a decision.

Your Federal Government spends at least $890,000 annually on bank fees for empty accounts…

A teacher was arrested, charged and will be tried for a felony after being found to posses a gun while in school.

Another teacher was suspended 4 days without pay for showing his class some standard tools (wrenches, pliers etc.) and how to use them; the administration said they could be used as weapons.

Chicago has a shooting every 6.3 hours, on average…

A newborn’s risk of autism can now be determined from placenta analysis at birth. What do you  suppose the effect of this will likely be on the ongoing battle over abortion (and now of course, infanticide)?

500 local jail cell door locks were opened by the all-knowing computer, all at the same time without warning. This was the second time in a couple of days. Maybe we want to wait a bit before we turn our civilization over to the computers… Maybe we should watch the progress of Obamacare’s universal computerized health records, for example. Back at the jail, we’re told that none of the prisoners left, perhaps because the computer failed to instruct them to do so.

    Concerning “What do you do with a bunch of 70 ton Abrams tanks that you don’t want?” Make yo-yos out of them. Thinking of all the things I’ve wanted in my life, I remember most the diamond studded yo-yos some guy from the Phillipines sold just across the street from my grammer school for a couple of springs. He could do amazing tricks, walk the dog, rock the baby, round the world. I couldn’t afford the diamond studded one, had to settle for the plain (bronze one as in Affordable Health Care plan). Plain one couldn’t do those tricks, needed to be re-outfitted I think.
    Memories with a grain of salt. 🙂

      I recall at least a couple of yo-yo fads…guess it’s an industry with a lot of ups and downs…

        For sure. My former congressman’s family got rich going round and round. They invented the HulaHoop. Kept him dizzy enough to vote for NAFTA back then.
