The New Normal?

worry

ALOHA, ALL!!

I’m in Boston right now and of course the news is focused on the bomb threats at Harvard.  Both local and national media are covering this heavily….mostly because it’s Boston and it’s another bomb threat.  But what’s interesting is that as they show students and people on the Harvard campus walking by the TV cameras and carrying on their daily lives, they seemed unconcerned.  In fact, it’s been reported that Harvard students cheered when they were told finals were cancelled for the day.  Cheered?  There’s a bomb threat yet they cheer because college tests are avoided?  Welcome to the new ‘normal.’  Welcome to a world where all that’s paramount is short-term gratification.  It’s a world that most young people – thanks to my ‘Baby Boomer’ generation – only care about what might happen in the next nano-second with no concern for the long term.  A truly abnormal normal.

Harvard Students Applaud Bomb Threat After Final Exams Canceled  To fix this, Heritage has suggested a tax credit or tax deduction that would be the same for everyone. This would help offset the cost of insurance, making it more affordable.

Why Hasn’t Jane Fonda’s $800G Charity Made Any Gifts Since 2006?  Bah Humbug, Hanoi Jane.

IRS Targeting, Round Two  The administration claims this rule is needed to clarify confusing tax laws. Hardly. The rule is the IRS’s new targeting program—only this time systematic, more effective, and with the force of law.  Yeah….those Tea Party groups need more regs but you go, Jane Fonda!!

LOL!  ANC Hires Garrett Morris as Sign Language Interpreter  A White House official applauded the move, saying HHS was looking into hiring Morris as the official sign language interpreter for videos found on the website Healthcare.gov.

Biden Gropes for Way to Knock ObamaCare Off Front Pages  Unfortunately for Biden and the O team, Biden’s latest headline-grabbing antic, no doubt choreographed to drive the ObamaCare news off the front pages, appears to involve grabbing of more than just news headlines.  YIKES!!!!

He's just a 'folksy' kinda guy.....

Who Benefits Most From Stand Your Ground? Blacks

ALOHA, ALL!!

Well, well, well.  Somehow, Eric Holder, Jessie Jackson & Al Sharpton must have missed this little tidbit.  I mean, they wouldn’t purposely ignore it, would they???  Blacks Benefit From Florida Stand Your Ground Law At Disproportionate Rate   “Black Floridians have made about a third of the state’s total “Stand Your Ground” claims in homicide cases, a rate nearly double the black percentage of Florida’s population. The majority of those claims have been successful, a success rate that exceeds that for Florida whites.”   (Shaka to hubby for the link)

But don’t confuse them with facts:  More Guns Equal Less Violent Crime

House Defies Veto Threat – Votes to Delay ObamaCare Mandate  “The House voted Wednesday to delay the ObamaCare employer mandate, defying a White House veto threat and winning over dozens of Democrats. Republicans also approved a bill delaying the mandate that individuals purchase health insurance by 2014.”
