Gleanings From The Passing Scene … (Politically Uncorrected)

Alfred_E__NeumannTidbits, trifles and troubles off the newstray:

An Obamacare update: One third of the uninsured won’t sign up … if so, the program cannot be financed. Premiums  are expected to skyrocket (after the election). The Feds just spent another $20 M on the famous website, Obamacare Navigators are helping enroll people at Mexican consulates and a poor schlemiel in Las Vegas was stranded between cancelled coverage and a pending Obamacare account owing $407,000 in medical bills. We have not heard whether he’s keeping his doctor …

An insurance company is charging auto coverage per mile driven, using GPS to measure the tab. Any bets on coming road taxes?

Since 1/1/2014, members of the U.S. military have committed suicide at a rate of 22 per day.

A Democratic state lawmaker and gun control advocate was arrested for arms trafficking.

Hospital infections kill 200 people per day in the U.S. per the Center for Disease Control.

Food prices are up 14% so far in 2014.

The IRS is withholding emails in the Tea Party targeting scandal. Curious, that no one in Congress seems to really care …

College football players at Northwestern received Federal NLRB permission to hold an election to unionize. (some likely earn more than we do)

The top GOP Behghazi investigator is reportedly in business with Clintonistas …

Louisville:  17 attactks by teen mob. Didn’t say they were black …

Knockout    Attack on Haredi grandpa leaving a Brooklyn wedding. Didn’t say black.

Chicago:  1 dead, 13 wounded in shootings.

Feds force school to tear down brand new bleachers because girls’ field bleachers weren’t as nice.

Obey or die when the cops are yelling orders, at least in New Mexico if this video fits.

Registered voters outnumber the population of 7 states per Judicial Watch. Population count likely excludes the deceased …

TV judge Joe Brown was arrested and jailed for contempt of court.

President Obama’s retinue for his recent trip to Brussels included 900 people, 45 vehicles and 3 airplanes. We hope someone remembered to include his golf clubs.

Citibank failed a recent Federal stress test … Banking these days seems a fantasy to us, firmly grounded in mid air …

Casinos  are being required to investigate the sources of money wagered by high rollers. We hear the gambling take is down in Vegas …

A man beat his girlfriend with a book on anger management.

Lies, Damn Lies and Government Statistics. If you believe things like the cost of living and unemployment stats from Washington these days, you probably expect to keep your doctor and your pllan if you like them.

Police responded to a 911 call to remove a man from a public office; the man’s body odor was stressing the workers.

Green groups are pressing President Obama to resist expansion of natural gas exports. We guess they are friends of Putin; that will leave Europe dependent upon Russian gas.

And in pursuit of averting global warming, the White House has plans to regulate cow farts. 

We can think of nothing worthy of adding to this.

  1. Ack, there’s chaos and confusion everywhere!

    Lord forgive me, but “A man beat his girlfriend with a book on anger management,” just cracked me up. That one actually makes a certain amount of sense. I have a book on attention deficit disorder that I’d like to smack somebody upside the head with…but I keep forgetting to do it.
