The American mess

IT’S A GREAT time to be a Mexican. The economy is headed uphill. Reforms to correct longstanding problems are gradually taking effect. Democracy is working well since 2000. The government does not attempt to micromanage our personal lives. The infrastructure improves daily. And we have a president who’s handsome.

US flagThen there’s the United States. Its economy still struggles. There are no reforms to correct anything that matters. Democracy, we sadly observe, works poorly with an ignorant electorate. The government wants to micromanage personal lives. The infrastructure degrades daily. And there is a clueless, ineffectual president.

The southern border is a sieve where hordes of people pour illegally into the country with scant impediment. Lots of children lately. Cities and states offer them “sanctuary,” drivers’ licenses and handouts. The nation’s educational curriculum is left-wing and anti-American. Free speech is verboten on university campuses.

Taxes are high, especially on businesses. The money is misused. The ranks of the government-supported “disabled” grow daily as does the illegitimacy rate, especially in urban ghettos. The national debt soars to incredible levels, and nobody does anything about it in either party. Capitalism (i.e. liberty) is sneered at.

As money grows for the faux disabled, money decreases for the military in this increasingly uncertain world.

Traditional families, gender roles and religions are also sneered at. Emotional deviancy, which has crafted its own flags to wave, is celebrated, protected by law and rubbed in the faces of the huge majority.

Children are confused and left on their own.

On the international stage, the clueless, ineffectual president none too subtly favors dangerous religious fanatics whom he does not consider to be such due to his being poorly informed and devoted to left-wing multicultural pipe dreams. And this very perilous presidency favors unlawful, unilateral action to consensus.

mex flagYes, America is a mess.

It’s a great time to be a Mexican.

Stuff about sex*

Let us turn our attention to sexual concerns.

1. Californians are turning out in high numbers to sign a petition to repeal the fresh law that allows schoolchildren to choose which potty to use, depending on how they view their sexuality.

(Pause for outrageous laughter. At the law, not the petition.)

Tidbit:  In the Los Angeles school system, a 2011 survey had 0.5 percent of students identifying themselves as “transgender.”

Safely assuming that some students had fun jerking the survey around, that means that all school johns are open to everyone because less than 0.5 percent of pupils want it that way, even though over 99.5 percent do not.

(Pause for eye-rolling.)

Let us wish the petitioners a speedy success.

Some details here.

2. The number of U.S. births being paid for by Medicaid nears 50 percent.

babyYep, Uncle Sam uses your tax dollars to pay for po’ folks’ soaring reproduction. In another few years, that percentage will, no doubt, near Cuban levels and that of the old Soviet system.

Climbing rates of illegitimacy, of course, play a huge role in this. The illegitimacy rate among the black “community” now exceeds a stunning 70 percent.

Ain’t multiculturalism great?

Some details here.

Both Numbers 1 and 2 are brought to you solely by the Democratic Party.
