Gleanings From the Passing Scene: (Politically Uncorrected)

What Me Worry ObamaAtlanta School District officials complained that they were being prosecuted like mobsters, merely because they organized to provide false grades for hordes of students. President Bush’s ‘No Child Left Behind’ testing was making their district look bad; they were just correcting the bad impression in the only way they knew…

The U.S. housing bubble popped after 2006, a collapse widely attributed to the government subsidized and controlled mortgage market with its low-credit loan standards imposed by such Congressmen as Senator Chris Dodd (D) and Representative Barney Frank (D). Now, wishing to restart mass mortgage lending, the Obamafolk are leaning on the banks to return to low loan standards. What is it that they say repeating a past mistake expecting a different result is suppose to define???

On definitions: The Yiddish ‘Chutzpah’ is said to be explained by a boy who murdered his parents demanding mercy because he is an orphan. Here is a New York City alternative definition: NYC sending a $1,200 bill to a cyclist for the damage his bike caused to a police car that hit him. The biker was not ticketed nor at fault…

Our readers and increasing numbers of travelers have learned that after several decades of absence (and the banning of DDT) the once common bedbug has returned to our large cities and is also returning to being considered common. (I’ve been itching to spread this news!) For some reason, our caring, compassionate government (that banned the DDT) hasn’t shown much interest in this subject. But the bedbugs, even with interest lacking, persevere and are now turning up increasingly in hospitals...perhaps they’ve qualified for Obamacare?

Unusually quietly, for government anyway, some Federal economic statistics are being revised, calculated differently than we’re used to seeing them. The new versions will show the economy as slightly (or not so slightly) better than did the older methods. Our governors are always improving things, right?

Yet another signal of our economic rehabilitation: Europe’s closing auto plants. Every day, in every way, things are getting better and better…

The U.S. Army blocked the Southern Christian Leadership Conference from its website; it was considered hostile…

We all know by now that Medicaid pays for care with our money for ‘poor’ folk such as wetbacks, welfare recipients and such; many aren’t aware that people earning well above the poverty line can qualify nowadays. And of course, it runs at a huge deficit. But it’s really worthwhile: a study shows that the general health of Medicare recipients is no better than the general health of folk without coverage. Who’da thunk it? I’m suspicious of ‘studies’ in political matters, but it should at least, be investigated; there are billions of dollars in play.

To Germany now: Moslems in that country with multiple wives come to 35%. And they re mostly supported by welfare…One can see how these folk are outbreeding the natives. And at said natives’ expense, too. But if marriage is applicable to gays, it certainly can’t be denied reproductive women who share a husband, can it?

Such is the passing scene this week; perhaps it deserves some thought…I’ll leave any conclusions to you; we’re politically uncorrected tonight.

    You and everybody else always pick on Obamacare! Always! Of course bed bugs want Obamacare too! Duhhh!!! What we have to do, is, inform crickets of the advantages of Obamacare ~ so that they’ll show up in hospitals also and serenade the patients naturally…

    • Jack Curtis says:

      I accuse you of simply shilling for the musicians’ union, looking to add crickets to their membership. And once you get them into the hospitals, I suppose you’ll want them properly fed at public expense too; failing to feed them would be abuse, right? I know what you’re up to!

  2. the unit says:

    I know the sound of crickets. Used to hear them in the evening when all was still about bedtime.
    Did you ever go bullfroging? Mama sent us in the ’40’s at night for the next meal. Listen, hear, shine light to stun, then gig. The sound…

    • Jack Curtis says:

      Bullfrogs sing basso profundo… You follow the shoreline, listening, with the light until you see the reflection from two eyes, sticking out of the water… and frog legs’ll kick the lid off the frying pan if you aren’t careful…
