Often when one blogs there comes a time when there are just too many items that one would like to deal with/comment on. Today is that day (it’s also the day I woke up half and hour early, so I have a little extra time). So here we go:
Marijuana advocates cheer White House’s stand… Now lets take this to it’s logical conclusion. (Of course Pot Heads aren’t terribly good a logic. A side effect from their addiction as has been proven and documented multiple times in the last 40 or more years but …….) Pot is a gateway drug for many, that’s why most thinking people don’t use it or advocate it’s use. My thinking is very libertarian on this issue. Give them drugs. Give as many people as want them all the drugs they want. Within a generation the wasters, the addicts and their dealers will be no more. Britain did a similar thing in the 1800’s with Opium. They developed a system of Opium dens where people went and indulged in their vice. Some turned away from the practice, those who didn’t died. If a person does not care about themselves or their health why should we stand between them and their decisions. Just keep them away from machinery and off the roads and the problem will take care of itself. This will free up jobs, schools and other services for those who actually can benefit from them.
Obama Willing to Go Solo… One wonders what new scandal the president is trying to deflect attention from. Better yet what power grab he’s going to attempt this time. Are we really going to get involved in a Civil War? The better question is are we really going to go in on the side of the “rebels”? While the power in charge is not what we would like, they have kept Syria, a hot bed of terrorist tendencies, relatively peaceful for the last several decades. And who is on the rebel side you might ask? Why our friends in Al Qaeda that’s who. As someone yesterday opined, we (the United States Navy and Air Force will be Al Qaeda’s air force in this instance. Yes lets give arms to the people who are responsible for 9-11. If the president drags it out a little longer he can announce his decision on the anniversary of the murder of 3000 innocent Americans at the hands of our brand new friends. It’s all about the timing. Another interesting fact is that Syria’s 2 million Christians (because there are Christians in the Middle East and have been since BEFORE the profit -and yes I know exactly the word I’m using, thank you- came forth with is divisive, dangerous and heretical doctrine) are standing on the side of the government. Why? Well mostly I believe because they know once the Islamists are in charge they’re dead. Maybe we should start giving them amnesty instead of those who break our laws and attempt to syphon off the increase of others labors.
Man Working At Chicago MCDONALD’S For 21 Years Still Making Minimum Wage… So anyone want a $15.00 Big Mac? How about $9.00 a gallon gas or milk? I know everyone wants to pay $200.00 for the internet or $60, 000 dollars for a used KIA. People can not follow things to a logical conclusion anymore (Might have something to do with the amount of low information voters experimentation with recreational drug use, see above) If you raise the minimum wage three times businesses will have to raise prices to cover that. Businesses are not philanthropies. They do not exist to provide easy jobs, paid time off, health care and social circles for their employees. Businesses exist to make money, more than that to make a profit. If they don’t make a profit they cease to exist. As with the Hostess Company sometimes it’s just easier to close the doors and work for someone else or just live off the government. Millions do it everyday and have been doing it for about 10+ generations. While I’m sorry this man is still making minimum wage why hasn’t he gotten a better job. Surely he has the experience to do so after 21 years. If not no amount of raising the wage is going to make him any different. McDonalds should be applauded for keeping him on the job this long.
TX School District Opts Out Of Federal Lunch Program After Kids Refuse To Eat Healthier… After working in the schools last year (much of the time as a lunch room para) I can assure you that mrs. presidents Orwellian lunch program is a dismal FAILURE. Instead of eating healthier our children are simply not eating. The amount of food going to waste is appalling. Giving children salad for lunch is not just stupid it’s criminal. The vast majority of them won’t eat it but even if they choke it down it lasts them probably an hour and then they are hungry again but since these days you can’t give them snacks to take to school unless it’s on someones crazy expensive list (or has to be refrigerated) children go home hungry. One day the kids had applesauce (which was fine, most ate that) a Smuckers peanut butter and jelly pastry thing and something else that I can’t remember off hand, for $2.10. I’ll just bet I could have packed that lunch for less. Another day they had a waffle (in a cellophane wrapper) no butter, no jelly and cold, along with their fruits and vegetables but no protein except for milk. I have an idea. How about we put kitchens back in school, hire some people to actually cook on sight, healthy tasty meals. It can’t cost more than the food we’re throwing away.
LABOR PARTICIPATION RATE HITS 34-YEAR LOW… I personally can attest to this. I was out of work for about 2 years. I have a degree, experience and an excellent work ethic (according to the people Iworked with before) but I needed a job with health benefits for my family so working 3 part time jobs might have given me cash but no benefits. People are pretty sure that the US is heading for a meltdown and that there is little hope anything will get better. Somehow the same suspects get re-elected no matter how dismal their job performance is. 98% of African Americans voted for barak obama again. That community has been decimated by the lousy economy with 40% of black teenagers unable to find work (of course the fact that young black men seem to be attempting genocide might have something to do with employers not wanting to take the chance of hiring sociopaths or psychotics and young black women apparently spend most of their time pregnant – according to statistics- so maybe that’s part of the problem). The failed policies of “gimme, gimme have failed spectacularly. We have become a nation where takers out number the producers and looking at our major cities and of course our 1st third world enclave, Detroit, one can see what is in store for the country as a whole. People however are architects of their own destruction and like lemmings will continue over the cliff because they don’t have the presence of mind to look to the right or left for an escape route. Better to all die together they seem to believe. Not me, lemmingism is not my religion of choice.
Just yesterday on a radio show the guest host told a story about overhearing a conversation between a black woman and her boyfriend. She incredulously asked him “Why were there white people at the presidents speech honoring Martin Luther King”. I kid you not. Apparently no one in her life, parent’s, teacher, mentor ever told her that thousands died during the Civil War so that she could be free. Thousands more died in the next 100 years fighting racism and bigotry. The father of the other candidate for president marched WITH Dr. King during the Civil Rights movement. If we are not supposed to judge all black people by the animals who shoot babies in their strollers, bully 3 year olds, rape 88 year olds, kill veterans and beat kids up on school buses why is it that all white people are lumped in with people who are dead and buried 150+ years ago, or who today are ignorant and moronic. Why because if those who seek to fundamentally change America can keep us at each others throats they can work with impunity to undermine our rights and enslave all of us.
So for those of you who beat the drum of RACISTTTTTTTTTTTT, good job. Thanks a lot, for speeding the destruction of the only real democracy on earth. What ever you do don’t take off the glasses, we wouldn’t want the light of truth to blind you. Then you’d have to go on disability and that would be too bad.
