Gleaning From The Passing Scene …(Politically Uncorrected)

Alfred_E__NeumannBest served with munchies and an aperitif of your choice:

CDC Director  Thomas Frieden was at one time, a medical doctor but his license has lapsed, leaving him a bureaucrat only.

Flying the Clintons into Iowa to attend Senator Tom Harkin’s steak fry cost $50,000 for the Private Jet.

A Barber  slashed a customer’s throat with straight razor … (Never annoy the one who shaves you.)

49,000 lbs. of Chicken  with an expiration date of August, 2015, were recled by Foster Farms, for Listeria. There have been no reports of any sickness reslting. Critics of the resulting Food Waste tend to ignore the enormity of wasted food resulting from legislation forcing restaurants, groceries, bakeries etc. to toss perfectly good food every day …

Pursuant to food waste, note that Egypt  cannot fed is people today, but it was once the breadbasket of the Mediterranean. Bad government with attendant corruption … (In our opinion, of course)

Cubans   are once again risking their lives to reach the U.S. using most anything that seems to float.

Warning ! Tech stocks are down; semiconductors used in techy gadgets are seeing declining orders. An “inventory correction, we’re told. Really? Or are we seeing declining consumption? Your call …

Donors pledge $5.4 B to rebuild Gaza ; the US  Pledged $212 M to Palestinians.  All to repair the destruction resulting from their insistence upon raining missiles upon Israel. Does there seem something wrong with this picture?

The younger brother of the now dead Boston Bomber  was though unarmed, shot up by law enforcement and captured a year ago August. Though convicted twice over in the media, he has yet to be tried in court. Why do you suppose, is that?

CA   State health exchange gave $184 M in contracts without  bidding … Some to vendors with ties to State.

Bank regulators are worried about the safety of low-quality Auto Loans  that have been fueling car sales. Aw, don’t sweat;  the Fed can always print up some more money to replace that.

Ebola  is becoming serious; it now threatens chocolate production in West Africa.  And the inevitable Hoaxes  have begun – to obtain quicker access to  Fed medical treatment. “Never waste a good crisis …”

Those who suffer vision loss from Macular Degeneration , mostly elderly, now have an FDA – approved therapy that can restore some vision; an implantable lens.

A bunch of  Brooklyn Teen s swarmed and trashed a kosher deli, screaming anti-semitic slurs. The police say it was not a hate crime.

A Boy , 10, strangled a 90 year old woman in her bed, for yelling at him.

Nomination of the next Attorney General and  release of the Bergdahl desertion investigations will both be available AFTER the November elections. Uh huh …

Scientists can now identify and remove a specific Memory from the brai of a mouse. (Will this prolong the lives of inconvenient witnesses?)

Fed Tax Take    Hits all time high .

Assissted Suicide     Prosecution guidelines in UK relaxed to protect doctors.

White House pool Reporters  are said to be unhappy that the President’s staff reviews their stories before publication to approve or disapprove them. Why?

California ,  at 23.4% has the nations’s highet poverty rate.

A Brain Study  has shown that men are wired to forego food in favor of sex …

A woman was jailed for failing to trim her overgrown yard; the same result followed a 60 year old man’s Ebola joke at a casino.  Do as you’re told and keep your mouth shut, these days …

 Houston’s  new lesbian Mayor and City Attorney have issued subpoenas for the sermons (and now, “speeches”) of five Christian pastors relating to homosexuality.  Populist Senator Ted Cruz sees potential jail time in the future, for the pastors, not the Mayor. A cloud upon the horizon, in this case, considerably bigger than a man’s hand …

And a man in Idaho beat a woman with a Burrito.

And so has gone the human circus of the past week. We hope that you have profited or at least, enjoyed the show …
