Gleanings From The Passing Scene… (Politically Uncorrected)

What Me Worry ObamaFood Stamps users have burgeoned to some 47 million people. Now, we know why. It’s not only the recession (now called: ‘recovery’) it’s also that the government has reduced the requirements for applicants and increased the amounts of the benefit (Now called: SNAP). That helps us understand why those who can’t find work after their unemployment benefits run out haven’t been in the streets… which is likely the point. Questions: Given our deficit, how long can these payments continue…and what will occur when they stop?

A group of young blacks stomped and killed a middle aged white man. Ho-hum…

In Belgium, where healthcare is much better than in the U.S. and supplied of course by the government, we hear that doctors are scrounging up disabled people to euthanize for organ harvesting; their waiting lists for organ transplants are so lengthy… more evidence of how Euro-welfare states work so much better…

Two white women were raped in a Wilmington (Del) park by a group of 10 – 12 black juveniles. Ho-him…

Obamacare update: The “Patient Protection and Unaffordable Care Act rebranding…

White woman in Pittsburgh beaten by black teen girls after they threw a bottle at her car. Ho-hum…

India’s growth rate has collapses… Toilet paper is now worth more than the Rupee.

Louisiana stepped up to help its disadvantaged (mostly black) kids education with vouchers for the school of their choice…provided the applicant fell below 2.5 times the family poverty rate and attended a ‘C’ or lower rated school. The Obama administration was so happy with this that it is now sung to stop it.

Also in school, in Houston a 10 yr old girl playing “doctor” with a group of kids was charged with aggravated rape for inappropriately touching a 4 yr old, while a teacher gets 30 days for the rape of a student.

Illegal aliens who murder Americans apparently aren’t news and aren’t reported by U.s. media.

Peculiarity of the week: Ireland is seeing a greater rate of people leaving to find work than during the potato famine. France is unsustainable. The ‘Emerging Market‘ economies are failing. In fact, the World Economy is going down.  Things are already so far along that the E.U. is developing a black market. In the U.S. the labor participation rate sits at a 35 year low and teen unemployment is so bad they are now talking about a lost generation. Our leaders and our media are calling this a ‘recovery.’ Why? (You might do well by considering that a bit…)

And our President, as all must know by now, plans to blame Congress for not letting him save face by killing some Syrians.

These are gleaned from the passing scene for your consideration; make of them what you will… remembering that you will be living with the results…
