6 thin- erm, 9 things

                bits & pieces 

Six Conundrums
  • 1. America is called capitalist and greedy – but half the population is subsidized
  •  2. Half the population are subsidized – but they consider themselves victims
  •  3. They believe they are being victimized – but their representatives in Congress run the government
  • 4. Representatives in Congress run the government – yet the poor keep getting poorer
  • 5. The poor keep getting poorer – but they have things that people in many other countries can only dream about
  • 6. They have things that people in other countries can only dream about – yet they want the US to be more like those other countries So who’s doing the freakin math here!
And a couple more things:
  • 1. We’re cautioned NOT to judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we’re encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.
  • 2. We’re regularly warned that Social Security is running out of money. But Welfare and Food Stamps seem to be a bottomless pit of money.
  • 3. We’re cutting benefits for veterans and raises for military. We’re downsizing our army and naval forces to levels lower than before WWII. BUT . . . we’re not stopping payments or benefits to illegal aliens. Who the hell is in charge here!!

Ron M spent some time on this, but as I format it I'm thinking, hey!,  by now everybody in the nation who possess even a modicum of reasoning skill already know and understand all this.  The people who don't,  and have to be led to water wouldn't be caught dead here.  So, WTF?


It's a Two-Way Tie!

Thomas Friedman

“Until we fully understand what turned two brothers who allegedly perpetrated the Boston Marathon bombings into murderers, it is hard to make any policy recommendation other than this: We need to redouble our efforts to make America stronger and healthier so it remains a vibrant counterexample to whatever bigoted ideology may have gripped these young men....And the best place to start is with a carbon tax.” 

 New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, April 21.

Ed Schultz

“This is the Web site folks, If you go to this Web site, you will find out how easy it is to read, how easy it is to navigate all the information, all the basic questions, and all the direction you need to take to get involved, to get health care. This is a great guide, if I may say, for any of you out there who feel so confused by all of these right-wing commercials that are just permeating through your television screen.” 

— Host Ed Schultz on MSNBC’s The Ed Show, September 30.

Chicago Announces Illegal Alien Children Given Preference in Jobs, Internships

In a preview of what amnesty holds in store for the rest of America’s middle class and lower income workers, Chicago is putting illegal immigrants in the job pool ahead of many citizen students who would also like to have the opportunity.

“DREAMers and DACA recipients are assets that we need to nurture and develop like precious natural resources for the benefit of the entire community. They are an integral part of Chicago’s workforce of tomorrow. Once again, the City of Chicago and Mayor Rahm Emanuel are leading the way on the inclusion of our immigrant communities.” - Luis Gutierrez (D-IL)
In much the same way they or their parents were rewarded for violating American immigration law and given preference over those who lined up to immigrate legally, Chicago is offering internships, volunteer and job opportunities to illegal alien “dreamers.”

In “justifying” the discrimination against American citizens, Mayor Emanuel said, “Chicago is a city that was built by immigrants and I am committed to ensuring that DREAMers have the same opportunities offered by the City to all of Chicago’s youth. We will open our doors to support talented young people who are committed to their education, building their job skills, and bettering their communities.”

When Tina Brown speaks ...

Democrat Media Monkeys

Musings of the Ugsome Tina Brown

Hoes in the Outfield
Monica’s new musings just remind us of how the death of privacy started. The press was at the height of its power when the Monica story began and Drudge was its underbelly.

The ascendant media that looked down on him has been pretty much destroyed. No one would have believed that that only 13 years later the Graham family would no longer own The Washington Post, that the two mighty news magazines would become a shadow and a corpse, and that the juggernaut CNN would be chasing the spoils won by cable TV’s counterpart to the Drudge Report, the Fox News Network. That too, is a story of humiliation. And not just hers.
