It’s Already a Wonder-full Summer
Regular readers know that a few times each year the wonders in my noggin spill over onto my keyboard. With all the scandalous news of late – from Boston to Benghazi and the IRS to the NSA – the wonderings have become a flood. So strap on your waders and let’s dive in:
I wonder … what ever happened to coverage of North Korea’s tyrannical, bizarrely unstable dictator Kim Jong Un? Mere weeks ago the world was poised on the brink of nuclear war with the polyp from Pyongyang. Today? Crickets.
I wonder … who is the sadistic person who designs hotel shower valves without the words “Hot” and “Cold”? I also wonder how much water is wasted trying to figure out how to get the right temperature from those infernal things?
I wonder … if anyone is concerned about the student body at Morehouse College in Atlanta. I mean, if it’s true (as we’re told repeatedly) that gender, race and social diversity are critical to the quality of higher education – does that mean the students at Morehouse College where President Obama gave the commencement address in May are being shortchanged? After all, they attend one of the most narrowly defined student bodies on the planet – all men, all black, all of the time. Hello, ACLU?
I wonder … if anyone else thinks Toyota should have named its popular Prius hybrid the “Pious” or better yet, the “Pass Us”?
I wonder … if anyone else thinks the word “fruition” gets funnier the more you say it?
I wonder … how anyone will ever again be able to walk a dog when plastic bags are banned from the face of the earth? Not to worry, at the rate government intrusion into our lives is growing, I’m sure we’ll soon have a Dept. of Doggie Defecation along with a library of regulations for federally-approved production, retrieval and disposal of canine emissions.
I wonder … if you choke a Smurf, what color does it turn?
I wonder … how our President can say “If there’s a step we can take to save even one child, we should take that step!” to a wildly cheering audience of gun-control zealots, yet only days later be the first President ever to honor and praise the attendees at a national gathering of Planned Parenthood, an organization responsible for ending the lives of hundreds of thousands of babies since the ’70s. Can you spell “hypocrite” boys and girls? Whoops, of course you can’t. You’re not alive.
I wonder … why our State Department didn’t claim that the two cowardly Boston bomber brothers were motivated by an offensive anti-Islam YouTube video that nobody on the planet has seen?
I wonder … how fast we mere citizens (aka: “sheeple”) would have our bank accounts seized and be thrown in prison if we tried the same tactic at an IRS audit as Lois Lerner (director of the IRS’s Exempt Organizations Division) used during her congressional hearing last month? “I’ve done nothing wrong and I refuse to answer any more questions.”
I wonder … why, as the brilliant African-American economist Thomas Sowell has asked, it is considered greedy to want to keep the money you have earned but not greedy to want to take somebody else’s money through higher tax rates?
I wonder … how any politician or pundit can say with a straight face that we the people have nothing to fear from the omnipresent government monitoring (spying) on each and every one of us – all the while the disgusting IRS scandal continues to grow in scope and importance?
I wonder … speaking of the obscenely arrogant, criminally corrupt and hyper-partisan IRS, what level of financial-terrorism we will all be subjected to when the IRS bloats its staff of thugs to enforce the coming onslaught of taxes and penalties facing every single American once Obama-care is in full force next year?
I wonder … how this all ends?
I’ll see you ’round town.
