More faux outrage as a hispanic neighborhood watch volunteer shoots the 6'3" thug that attacked him. The 6'3" football player with his gold teeth and gang tats was suspended for school for drugs, having theft tools and/or beating up a bus driver. Somehow the media reports this as a white guy gunning down an innocent boy holding a bag of skittles. This boy went by the Twitter handle "No Limit Nigga" and his tweets are of the nasty gangsta type. Sweet innocent kid, right.
The Supreme Court hears case on ObamaCare. Of course it's not Constitutional but the left has 3 or 4 justices they can depend on to find that it is. These are reliable leftist votes, they are politicians and could care less about it being Constitutional or not.
The Obama administration is set to give a $5 billion "loan" (har har) to a "private" company called Desert Xpress to build a high-speed train from outside of LA to Las Vegas, Nevada. What is Desert Xpress, you ask? Well the media calls it a private company, but its website offers no information on who or what owns it. Asking questions to the only e-mail contact email@example.com returns a note to refer to the website.
So why is Obama willing to "loan" $5 billion of YOUR MONEY to a secret organization with no track record? Because I am sure he already knows who is behind it. The unions, casinos, city of Las Vegas, top politicians in Nevada probably too. The City of Las Vegas is already condemning and seizing properties on the proposed route, they are definitely involved.
Where is the media? Why aren't they asking questions about the Corruptocracy that we are living in now? Of course, they are part of it, they welcome it.
The train will never make a profit. It is faster, cheaper, easier and more convenient to simply drive or fly to Las Vegas. Even if the train was full on every run, it would not make a dime of profit. Therefor it will never have the funds to pay back the "loan" and will probably require further funds to finish construction and then further funds annually to subsidize its operations.
It's another wasteful, white elephant boondoggle. Another chance for politicians to crow about "creating jobs" when we all know that subsidized jobs simply suck investment and dollars out of the private economy. They will end up killing more jobs than they "create" this way. That is normal for government.
Well, that is how I see it this week.
