Gleanings From The Passing Scene… (Politically Uncorrected)

Alfred_E__NeumannAnother dim sum tray of tasty nuggets for you to dip in your choice of seasoning and enjoy:

98% of scientists consider anthropomorphic climate change to be ‘settled science’ is a massively quoted statistic; it now appears that the 98% is actually taken from a group of just 72 scientists, a rather more limited and less impressive reference. It would seem that the weatherfolk use statistics the same way they use other weather-prediction tools.

America’s Amtrak rail passenger ‘service’ continues to lose millions on its passenger trains. Considering that the entire government runs at an enormous loss, is anyone surprises?

Another pipeline explosion was described ‘as the ‘new normal’ along with shootings. One cannot deny that folks nowdays are getting bigger and more frequent bangs out of their lives…

According to Gallup, the majority of Americans say that healthcare is not a government responsibility.  This seems irrelevant, as the almighty, all-knowing government clearly disagrees. How about food and shelter?

A front yard garder of some 17 years has been ordered removed by the city; in another case, smoking inside private homes has been outlawed. Maybe we need a new definition for ‘private property?’

In another Amtrak reference to government competence, a train taking its passengers to New York City somehow ended up in Bala Cynwyd, PA. We have no explanation to offer for this.

Another $139 million of taxpayer money down the drain on loans to green electric car boondoggles as Fisker goes under.

Two pet cats inherited $250,000 and a house, evidently by being nicer to an old guy than his disinherited family. Will the SPCA represent the cats in court?

The ‘knockout’ attacks have gone largely unreported by the major media we are now told, because they aren’t racial and are being ‘overhyped.’ In fact, the knockout game is a myth. A recent victim will be relieved that his jaw and nose are only mythically broken, an elderly lady as well and especially, the mow mythically arrested high school kid.

In its ongoing devaluing of the Catholic Church, the Obama Administration is closing the U.S. Embassy at the Vatican. The Embassy to Italy will take care of the Vatican in its spare time…

Its wealthy appear to be bailing out of China, with everything they have. The same thing is occurring in the U.S.  “He who has eyes to see, let him see…

A 15 year old high school student lit his teacher’s hair and shirt on fire in class. Teaching is apparently becoming a hot job…

Two men passing by at the beach were able to save a shark from choking on a moose.

And thus, another wonder-full week.
