Gleanings From The Passing Scene … (Politically Uncorrected)

Alfred_E__NeumannAnother week passed, rich in confusion, anguish, triumph and comedy, i.e. the human condition …

A scientist, somehow afflicted with momentary honesty, admitted that a recently published census of wild polar bears reported numbers made up to satisfy public demand. Such faux science needs response: Next thing you know, folks will be doubting Global Warming!

This linked story tells of corrupt Democrat politicians, corrupt District Attorneys protecting them, etc. Republicans are omitted as they preside in fewer places … and to avoid boring repetition.

New York City — This liberal paradise has thousands of homeless kids living in public shelters, typically with single dads. Is this Liberalism’s replacement for the old, obsolete human family?

Follow this link to a photo of Homs, Syria’s third largest city, to see what Syrians are doing to their own country. Can’t happen in the U.S. though, right? Hmnn … Wonder why the Federal Department of Agriculture wants machine guns?   And why is there an “arms race” among Federal departments? And why does the State Department need hundreds of pounds of plastic explosive, plus thousands of small containers of liquid explosive? Seems we’re setting up to get a real bang out of government!

The folks concerned with the upcoming Olympics in Brazil have warned Olympic sailors not to fall into the water in Rio … it isn’t safe. No, not piranha … pollution!

Middle class seniors are taking in roommates to stay in their homes, as the inflation that the government assures us we don’t have, bite.

You will be thrilled to know that the presidents of at least 5 public colleges now earn (or at least, receive) $1 million per year …

A large, black teen flash mob invaded and robbed a convenience store.

A puzzle: Why, as President Obama is pounding on his Global Warming program and the media is reporting a melting Antarctica, haven’t we heard of this record-breaking buildup of Antarctic sea ice?

A Federal agency has dropped its employee rating system — it was too discriminatory.

A dead New Yorker has voted14 times …

The ‘knockout’ game broke a junior high school student’s jaw.

New York City declared war on rats; San Francisco is worrying about a woman who breeds them to turn loose in the city …

GOP candidates appear to be backing away from repeal of Obamacare. Huh … We never expected them to actually repeal it in the first place …

The World Bank has sounded the alarm on world food prices. Can’t they hear our government, assuring us that there’s no inflation?

One in six men 25 to 54 are not working. We assume that includes the disabled and such but it’s still a lot. Sweden, evidently with similar conditions, is going to make lemonade … they’re going to try a 6 hr. workday. Yeah … Uh, what’s that going to do for productivity?

The Obamafolk approved a $250 k study to identify LGTB historical landmarks

A gang of black teens attacked two white men on the street in Cincinnati.

And our closer for this week, a ‘man bites dog’ type of story if there has ever been one: A white cop won a BIG award with a lawsuit in Federal Court … For racial discrimination!

So went another sevenday of human folly and foibles; we hope you found something to interest you …
