Gleanings From The Passing Scene … (Politically Uncorrected)

Alfred_E__NeumannA Saturday selection of ridiculous reports representing a ridiculous species cavorting before a mirror:

A Beauty Pageant  contestant was arrested during the pageant, for Workman’s Compensation fraud. We will leave you to decide what this says bout our society. (If anything)

The present decline in Military Spending  is generating a fuss from the usual suspects – those Congressfolk with large donors in the arms industry. Their concern for American “weakness” seems to overlook the fact that the  US Sppends  more on its military than the next 10 largest spenders together.

People’s I.Q.’s are declining in western countries, per a science report. This, considering the politicians that are regularly elected these days, seems unarguable.

The Service Employees International Union received obeisance from the Obama National Labor Relations Board. Per the new SEIU/NLRB  ruling, union organization of a franchisor will unionize employees of any franchise owners as well. You’ll likely see this first in fast food prices.

A new Cell Phone  app can track your phone around the world. Somebody’s trying to keep up with government?

The Obamafolk are pushing ahead on the U.N. Global Warming  treaty without the required Senate approval. The GOP is of course, strongly against this. Wonder where Obama finds the money to fund such things, since the Republicans must agree to the spending before it can occur?

The Federal Drug Administration (FDA ) has announced that travelers must show their prescription medications to TSA officers before being allowed to board planes. In a further burst of convenience, the Department of Transportation (DOT) wants new cars to broadcast location, direction and speed.

The top ethics lawyer at the IRS faces disbarment for lying?

A Panda living in a Chinese panda breeding zoo, faked a pregnancy to obtain the treats and improved living quarters  provided those expecting. Bears aren’t stupid … a zoo official said: “They do that.”Just like people seeking welfare?

The struggle for control of the Internet continues: The states vs. the feds and the Dems vs. the GOP. No government on planet earth will allow a free Internet any longer than it must. Betcha!

A Black cop  killed a young white man and a  White Vet was severely beaten and brain damaged for attempting to eat in a restaurant that catered to blacks. Heard about those yet?

An Actress at the Emmys showed off her new weed pipe while on the red carpet, then went in and won an Emmy. She had a potful of confidence …

A NYC conductor has sued over the bedbugs on his train …

The Feds  who regulate banks are telling them they must not finance pawn shops, payday lenders or check cashing services. Making it easier for you to decide what business you want to enter and the U.S. has too many businesses anyway, right?

Polygamy Is now legal, per a Utah judge who ruled in favor of a man and his four wives.

A new Fed Database  is reported to track hate speech on Twitter. Better tweet nice!

Uber   ride sharing service is under attack in Hoboken, NJ; a cop actually pulled passengers out of a Uber driver’s car. Yellow cab doesn’t seem to appreciate faster, cheaper competition? The economy doesn’t need jobs?

Butter   hit an all-time high price. Inflation is spreading …

Everyone who committed a crime, made a political statement or indulged in exhibitionist sex games seems for this week, to have kept their clothing on, leaving us without a closing report. Sorry!

So endeth yet another week on planet Earth. Oh, and the silly U.N. requested that killer Robots   that several countries are developing (including the Pentagon) be outlawed before they are available. Right. As if …
