Review of the News

WARNING! 
Not politically correct!!


I'll bounce through some the news and share reactions:

Security Officers - Sensitive as ever. Marine Cpl. Nathan Kemnitz was severely injured in 2004 in a roadside bomb attack in Fallujah, has limited use of his right arm and cannot lift it above his head. His body is interlaced with metal both shrapnel from the bomb and from medical procedures designed to restore limited mobility.

So when security guards at the state capitol building in Sacramento, Calif., asked him to remove his dress blue blouse “because he was wearing too much metal,” and TSA asked him to raise his arms above his head for the full-body scanner at Sacramento International Airport, he could not comply. He was in Sacramento at the request of the California State Legislature as their honored guest. I think that he should have turned around and left, but Cpl. Kemnitz just sucked it up like a good Marine.

A Jesus Fish or a 6? Groundskeepers were ordered to rake over a mark in the dirt in the infield, on the pitcher's mound in St. Louis. The Cardinals said that it was a 6 in honor of Stan Musiel, who died earlier this year. Progressives saw a Jesus Fish. Then some baseball player also etched a cross in the dirt in the infield. What outrage will the players come up with next? First a fish (or a 6) then a cross? Progressives across the nation are concerned. Nobody else is.

I don't understand the obsession with the Zimmerman self defense case (Trayvon Martin matter) in Florida. Yes, President Obama suggested that if he had a son, the boy would have looked like the late Trayvon. Obama was a little Muslim who had a transvestite nanny when he lived in Indonesia. What difference does that make? Martin attacked Zimmerman. Zimmerman defended himself. The young truant and inner city doper is dead. Race doesn't matter. The evidence all falls on the side of Zimmerman, as is apparently unfolding. So after this lengthy circle-jerk, the jury will follow the evidence and the law or they'll do an O. J. Maybe Zimmerman will be charged by the Federal District Court for civil rights violation and it will start all over again in an effort to bring a pleasing result to Obama?

In Guyana a US State Department Official (FSO) is trading visas for sex. Apparently heterosexual sex, which is a bit of a shock because I seriously thought that all FSO's were homosexual. I thought that being a 'gay blade' was a requirement of the job. He will be punished BIG TIME if it's heterosexual sex. If he's obtaining homosexual sex for visas, he may be sent to someplace like France (same language as Guyana) where he can blend in better.

The California legislature is trying to push anti-firearms legislation through that would ban all rifles that have any sort of magazine. No, it makes no sense at all, but progressives never do, so the pattern holds. I asked people in the law enforcement community what they'd do if the legislation passed. 100% said, "absolutely nothing". 

The Vietnamese are smuggling chicken feet into China.  I have to quote the exact story on this one:
According to a report in the South China Morning Post, the chicken feet were brought into China frozen, and then processed with bleach and other chemicals to add weight and improve color. By increasing the weight, the gang was able to turn about 2.2 pounds into more than 3 pounds of seemingly fresh chicken feet, and make thousands of dollars.
I have spent time in Asia and the Asian communities in the US and never developed a taste for chicken feet. The Asian people (primarily women) who worked for me universally loved them. Then again, they also liked eating dog and cat, preying on domestic pets and pigeons in the neighborhoods where they lived. I avoided dinner invitations. (a Vietnamese person with two cats is known as a "rancher".)

Prospective Democratic Party Voters (wetbacks) who are sneaking into the US are dehydrating and dying in the Arizona desert. The US Border Patrol has found 27 carcasses in Arizona since the first of June. The remedy is not to sneak into the US in violation of law. I can't say much more about the tragedy than that.

The Twinkie is returning to the shelves. Hostess Brands LLC says the spongy yellow cakes will have a shelf life of 45 days when they start hitting shelves again July 15. That's nearly three weeks longer than the 26 days the previous owner had stated as the shelf life for Twinkies. However, they are said to retain their spongey, creamy goodness for about 1,000 years, so I don't see the problem with a 45 day shelf life. Mayor Bloomberg is concerned.

Shocking News. The cost of subsidies for those seeking government aid through ObamaCare has increased dramatically. Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah wrote a letter to the administration asking why the president is already requesting 107 percent more than three years ago to pay for subsidies. Yes it's a scam. It was always a scam. That's why everyone had to pass the legislation at night on a weekend immediately before the Christmas holiday and couldn't read it first.

And the jobs report shows that businesses are cutting back on hours, forcing people into part-time employment because of ObamaCare. What a shock...

  5. I thought maybe the Guyana story had something to do with Twinkies back on the shelf... but I was mistaken. As for chickens, I prefer the beaks myself.

    1. The twinkies are alive and well at the US Department of State... Rest assured that's unlikely to change unless the entire department is replaced.
