GLEANINGS FROM THE PASSING SCENE … (Politically Uncorrected)

Alfred_E__NeumannAnother collection of inanities, insanities and realities to amuse and confuse ..

Israel was accused of inciting violence by shooting terrorists ( 3 Palestinians were shot dead in knife attacks after the  “How to stab a Jew” speech by the Palestinian president.) (The post WWII ‘gift’ of Israel to the surviving Jews is turning out to have been a poisoned chalice … ). President Obama accused Israel of terrorism.

US carriers are withdrawn from the Middle East as Russia moves in? (Putin met Obama in New York just before Russian landed in Syria … You don’t suppose they have a deal?)

Global cooling is now expected by climate experts, excepting those expecting global warming ad those too confused to know what to expect. (Cooling was last fashionable in the 1970s, when such expectations were a lot cheaper.) In related news: The top French TV weatherman wrote that climate change is based upon a fraud and was  Fired.

In 2015, Record Federal taxes were taken: $21,833 per worker, but a $438.9 B spending deficit remains.

The Clinton e-mailsS investigation by the FBI was derided by President Obama. (He knows a good joke when he hears it.)

Brazil is  flowing Argentina down the financial drain. (It’s many more than these two; the U.N. should open a bankruptcy service.)

A 3rd baby in 3 months died of defenestration out a New York City 6th floor window. (Don’t ill-mannered NYC citizens know that they’re supposed to use the dumpster to dispose of trash?)

China Sea chicken: China told the U.S. that iit will shoot if the US ‘trespasses’ on its newly grabbed islands.

A man dressed as a woman was incarcerated in a women’s jail even after telling police he was a man. (How can a  poor cop know what is politically correct these days?)

Consumers are buying less as the US economy deflates. (Don’t they know how to act in a recovery?)

Government corruption tops the list of Americans’ fears, per a poll. (Time to think of that, is wen voting!)

Uber is expanding into the delivery business in New York City, Chicago and San Francisco.  (Aren’t those some of the cities trying to shut Uber down?)

A white officer accused the Los Angeles Police Department of racial discrimination (For comic effect, we presume?)

New York City police use secret x-ray equipped vans while refusing information about them. (Probably envied the naked scanners at airports – the ones that they say aren’t used anymore.)

A man in an electric wheelchair was arrested for DUI.

The US  Navy will train navigators to use the stars as well as satellites for fear of hackers..  (That’s boats; how will those driverless cars handle hackers?)

A new California law  makes voter registration automatic for any recipient of a driver’s license, new or renewed. (We are confident that ballots will be available in Spanish …. )

An angry Chinese investor stabbed the CEO of an investment firm.. (They seem to have picked up capitalism quickly … )

A Man was knocked out by hot sauce in a fight over Graham crackers.

China’s Middle Class is larger than America’s.  (America’s is shrinking. So, we suppose, will China’s)

Asylum seekers have sued Germany for slow payment of benefits. Masked migrants in the streets yelling “Allahu akbar” in Germany were Chechens who don’t speak Arabic nor live in the Middle East. .(But they know not to et a good crisis go to waste.)

Flight MH 17 investigators say it was struck by a Russian made surface to air missile. Video of Russian-backed forces inspecting wreckage of commercial flight they destroyed in Ukraine. (Y’all heard from Ukraine lately? What? Can’t hear you!)

Middle Class Wealth is declining worldwide.(Nice to have company, right?)  Developed countries are hopelessly insolvent. (They share “Welfare statism,” if that helps … )

Sweden has opened the world’s first male rape center. (Before all you guys line up to get in there, know that most male rape isn’t by females … )

A naked woman destroyed the interior of a Subway restaurant.  (C’mon, Subway isn’t THAT bad!)

And so, the death of another week’s portion of human history-to-be. Take it or leave it; it doesn’t really care.

      Hmnn … Many of us seem to need to avert their eyes from our surrounding reality, so as to attempt denial of what is required to survive in it. Particularly, to survive as a species. I’d bet that follows a normal distribution, more or less. Each tail of which sees the other as nuts …

      Of course, that may be simply my delusion!
