Bits and pieces

Bits and pieces
The president should be called the conniver-in-chief for all the crap that he's pulled.  The American public, at least 51% of it put this person into the White House…not once, but twice!  Doesn’t anyone know that old saying,
“fool me once, shame on you…fool me twice, shame on me.”   Former president, Jimmy Carter recently said another thing that makes me think that he’s gone round the bend.  In an interview on April 3rd, he was heard to say “I think it would be inappropriate for the United States to try to block someone that Iran wanted to choose.”, when the issue of Iran’s potential ambassador to the UN came up.  It turns out that the candidate may have been one of the hostage-takers when Iran
stormed the American embassy in 1979.  Are you thinking, as I am, that our government has become wussified to the point of causing regurgitation?
            April 4th, Brianna Ehley, writing in the Fiscal Times, dropped this bomb…
The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors.   In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years.   The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.   How in the world do you lose $6 billion and not have a clue as to where it went?
            When I went to school, way back in the dark ages, we had a time during the day when we could catch up on our studies, or anything else.  Some of the smarter ones than me did their homework.  Now, having said that, how does a  school teacher presume to have the authority to tell a student, who is reading a bible during his “free time”, that bibles belong in church, not in school.  A teacher
at Highview Elementary School in Dearborn Heights took it upon herself to do just that.  To add to the situation, the boy’s mother says the school has been excessively placing her son in timeout and denying him lunch.  Here’s a thought; is it possible that the teacher was a Muslim?  Dearborn-istan
has a very large Muslim population.
            Back in October last year, 50 members of Congress told the president that they would not ratify the UN Arms Treaty.  What happened, because the treaty was approved, I believe.  This is part of an overall gun-control plan, and as I’ve said many times…it has nothing to do with guns, and all about control.  In any
country that has a tyrant for a leader, it cannot have an armed populace.  The
2nd Amendment is what protects us…or used to.   Those opposed to guns will
say that the 2nd amendment is only for certain types of guns, and only for a well-organized militia…but that simply isn’t the case.
            Europe, soon-to-be Eurabia, is caving in to Muslims in little pieces, but the total transformation should be completed by about 2030, according to a newspaper story from the UK.  Britain has caved in probably more than other countries, so it was no surprise to find out that Birmingham Metropolitan College
Is now allowing face-veils to be worn by Muslim students.  Another school in the UK first caved in and refused to serve any foods that were made with pork.  Then, just recently, they reversed that decision.  Prime Minister David Cameron, once a staunch supporter of Islam in the UK, is now having 2nd thoughts.Nevertheless, Muslims expect to have Eurabia in place in about 16 years, due to their rise in population.
            California, Massachusetts, Illinois, Connecticut, and New Jersey are the
worst states when it comes to solvency.  I wonder why that is?  Maybe it’s because they are suffering from what I call “the good-times syndrome”?  That is,
they thought the good times would never end…but they did, and now these are states that are close to being insolvent.  Only the federal government can think it
can dig itself out of a hole by digging that hole deeper, and I’m talking about them just up and printing more money.  There…that’ll fix it.  In the meantime, the economy sucks, we’re hollowing-out the armed forces, we’re trillions in debt, but the stupid people in the government keep on handing out money to people that
just plain don’t like us.  Oh, where is Milton Friedman when you really need him?
            As an example of wasted money, here’s this from Senator Coburn’s
annual Wastebook for 2012.  How about Moroccan pottery classes to the tune of
$27 million, or building robot squirrels $325 thousand?  There’s lots more, and the 2013 book isn’t available yet, as far as I know.  We are $17 trillion in debt,
with no good chance of ever getting out of that hole…but we’ll keep digging because the Congress can’t control spending right now.  Did you know that the
website for Obamacare cost $319 million…and doesn’t work all that well?  If you
buy anything from eBay or Amazon, there is a clear path for you to obtain your
purchase…not so with Obamacare.  Do you like pizza?  How about one that was
printed on a 3-D printer?  The feds paid right at $125 thousand to find out about that.
            America has been on a food binge for years and years.  That would be one explanation why we, as a population, are getting fatter every year.  Seats on airplanes and in movie theatres have been “enlarged” to handle the bigger rear-ends that get plopped into them.  Here’s something you might want to think about…Russia buys, or used to buy, a lot of wheat from us.  We pay them to
get our astronauts up to the International Space Station.  Why don’t we charge them the same amount for the wheat that they charge us for the ride?  In fact,
we probably feed a pretty good portion of the world, don’t we?   Should you
come down with diabetes or something else, not to worry because ObamaCare will cover them when you find work and sign up, or, when Iceland becomes a tropical paradise.
            When Jay Leno was still on TV, he used to do some interviews with people that he’d meet on the street…and the answers they gave, to the questions he’d ask, would make me wonder about the future of this country.
If the questions were about anything to do with the running of the country,
they didn’t have a clue…but ask them about sports, movies, who-just-got-married to-what-other-celebrity, and they were right there with the answer.  Our kids
are being dumbed down, and it’s deliberate.  The people that might pose a
military, or economical, threat in the future are raising a generation of kids
that will most likely beat us six ways from Sunday.
            Well, that cleaned up a bunch of napkins.
