Humans, you gotta love ’em!
Look at this: Greece is more than dead broke due to entitlement spending and years of fiscal irresponsibility. So whom do Greeks elect to form a new government?
A radical leftist, which inspired one pundit to say (paraphrasing): Greece is in cardiac arrest and instead of finding a heart surgeon, it hires a mass murderer.
And France, which has one of the highest levels of public spending in Western Europe and hasn’t balanced its budget since 1974, elects a Socialist president!
It’s voodoo Socialist economics that has landed these countries in their current predicament, along with Portugal, Italy, Spain, Ireland, etc. — and they just keep digging the hole deeper.
Obama is taking the United States down the same path, by the way. But if you don’t already know that, I’m sure not gonna convince you, am I?

But let’s move on to obesity, a ballooning (pun intended) problem in the United States.
Since making judgments about people is verboten, due to the political correctness police, we cannot blame fat people for being fat. It’s the environment’s fault!
The influential Institute of Medicine released a report this week.
Fat people are not at fault for being fat, says the institute. It’s their surroundings that cause it. It’s the Devil’s doing. Too many McDonald’s, too much temptation, etc.
Errant nonsense. People are funny.
