One of the reasons Social Security pensions won’t rise but it costs us more to live: How the US government doesn’t notice inflation. (Well, one of them.) NOTE: Those with Medicare premiums withheld from their Social Security pension will receive less from Social Security next year; Retirees are making up for some of the Medicare funding transferred to Obamacare.
The US spied on Israel, prepared to destroy Israeli bombers to protect Iran if Israel attempted to bomb Iranian nuclear facilities.
Hamas ordered suicide bombings in Jerusalem. (Damn Jews better not defend themselves again, right?)
Depression medication is taken by 25% of US women, 15% of US men; 69% of whom are not depressed?
Psychiatric drugs, not guns, seem to be the common denominator mass killings?
L.A. water will cost more. The public reduced usage so much in the drought, the water utility receives too little money selling the smaller mount. (A lot of other retailers would like to do that … )
Prez Obama is deliberately flooding the labor market with illegals? (Future Democrats to offset the unemployed?)
Disney’s replacement of American with cheaper foreign workers continues, the fuss grows.
U.S. Census data show that the retirement ‘crisis’ is worsening. (No worries, just work ‘til you drop!)
Per research: Cheese can be as addictive as drugs? (Mexican cheese cartels coming?)
AirBnb is joining Uber as a government target in San Francisco; renting out a bedroom may become illegal. (Hotel owners don’t approve of that, right?)
Uber has doubled its driver force in the US since last year to over 325,000. (And every one a new job for someone and new work for attorneys helping the old taxi drivers attack the very idea.)
A San Francisco middle school withheld student election results for insufficient diversity. (Why bother with election?)
Obamacare appears clearly unsustainable (unadmitted as yet of course), what next? (A “fix” of course!)
And if you think that it’s only Obamacare: US Health Care vs Reality .
A Drone was caught peeping into a couple’s window. (Peeping Tom with tech)
Fundamental Physics: Sorry, Professor Einstein, but we just showed that either the speed of light is not a limit for travel or God does play dice with the universe … (An entangled particle experiment seems conclusive … or does it?)
The US Middle Class: R.I.P. Now, 51% of workers earn $30,000 or less. (Welcome to the New Proletariat.)
Islam is abducting Christian women and burning churches, per an Iranian Grand Ayatollah. (And he can prove it in the Koran, too.)

An American Airlines flight was diverted after a drunken passenger formed a ‘finger gun.’ (Another drunken pilot?)
A black career criminal publicly punched a white homeless woman unconscious in a park, for spitting at him. (The new standard of public behavior?)
Two Teen brothers ran a prostitution ring from jail, giving some of the money to their mother. 3 high school teens face heavy child porn charges for filming their own sex acts. (We’ve fired God and hired Government; what else should we expect?)
Among 8th Graders:73% know little geography. (How did that 27% slip through?)
A Los Angeles quake is due within 3 years at Richter 5.0 to 6.3, probability 85% to 99%. (If we believe NASA) Hmnn … Nobody’s predicted quakes before, except astrologers, right?
Playboy won’t show naked girls anymore. (Can’t compete with Times Square, sexting, high school parties?)
Now, GMO pigs, humans next?
Is Congress aiming at outlawing news sites like Drudge Report and Real Clear Politics? (They’d never do that, we’d only know what they want us to know)
Will Congress approve lawsuits against churches that follow Biblical writings concerning homosexuals? The pending equality legislation is claimed to provide that.
A naked man in a Spiderman mask confronted teenage girls in a park. (These days, he was likely the one at risk?)
And with that, the late week escapes …
