Christmas Shocking

Sometimes it takes two seemingly unrelated news stories to tell the whole story. 

In this case, the first story is about a Census Bureau study which shows 65% of kids in America are in homes receiving aid from federal programs. And the second story is about Barack Obama winging his way to Hawaii ("The Least Christmassy State in America!") for yet another insanely expensive 17-day vacation and choom fest.

The Census Bureau report is based on statistics from 2011 - meaning that the actual numbers are probably even worse now. But it's shocking and depressing to think that the majority of kids in America are now being brought up with the expectation that nothing is more normal than needing and receiving a government payout. That's a mindset which suggests a very bleak future for those kids and our country.

Meanwhile, the president who has tirelessly devoted himself to gutting the middle class and turning America's citizenry into indentured servants is still living like a king (Kamehameha, to be exact) on our tax dollars.

We wish we had a snappy punchline with which to wrap up the commentary today, but those statistics have sapped our sense of humor. Maybe we need a 17-day luxury vacation...

Christmas Jeer

Remember a few weeks ago when we said we wanted to start doing "Good News Fridays?" Well, there's still no good news worth mentioning and plenty of rotten news. So we decided to just have a little holiday-themed fun today...
