GLEANINGS FROM THE PASSING SCENE ..(Politically Uncorrected)

Alfred_E__NeumannWhy these days must we hunt so far for so few items of significance and/or interest?

Global cooling replacing global warming again? (Latest weather ‘science’ gymnastics) The earth continues to cool, per satellite measurements. (Satellite recall order coming?)

A Navy reservist was sentenced for behavior apparently a mini-model of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails. For which she has now been cleared. (Maybe the sailor should have run for President?)

U.S. at war: Replacing warriors with Lawyers. (Politically correct replaces victorious)

The Culture: 30 shoppers threw cans, swung bats in a WalMart brawl following a teen’s insult about a young woman’s dress. (Being offended vs Free speech)

A mystery drone hovering was spotted by the underlying homeowner. (Get used to it.)(When will one of these kill someone in the U.S?)

Europe’s banks becoming scary? (We thought that taxpayers had saved them …)

The Culture: The U.S. Navy:  Cowardice and incompetence off the coast of Iran. (How do you make warriors of folks whose main concern is which bathroom to use?)  The U.S. Marines will now accept chubbier and weaker women.  (Feel safer yet?)

The European Union is sanctioning Spain and Portugal for continued deficits; France and Italy walk. (Some animals are more equal than others …)

Two snipers ambushed and shot 10 Dallas police; 3 dead, two more died later. A Black Power group claimed responsibility, promised more. (Oops, it later turned out to be a lone gunman without group connections. And 12 shot, 5 dead. But the gunman remained black …)  The culture: Agitators taunted cops and danced after the Dallas massacre.

A Federal (USGS) lab was found to have falsified environmental data for over a decade. (Did it use workers from unemployment/cost of living backgrounds?)

A naked beach photographer whose wraparound towel ‘fell off’ was arrested for indecent exposure.(Will he sue the towel maker?)

Und Das ist alles or something like that.
