The new rage is black serial killers. The guy who has been charged with killing that coed from Virginia is linked to several other killings of young women over the years. Not to be outdone, another black man arrested for killing a woman is leading police to a long string of female murder victims missing back as far as seven years ago. My memory may be faulty but it seems to me that most of this kind of thing in the past was related to white guys. But I guess it's a good thing to see the two cultures melding, right?
In Louisiana, which got stuck with a lot of the illegal immigrant kids that Obama let stay in the country, the school system is falling apart. The legal limit for class sizes has been changed from a max of twenty to a max of thirty students. Anyone who ever worked in a classroom will shudder at the thought of what that means. Louisiana's schools are paying a $5000 bonus for bilingual teachers, but getting few takers. So a teacher stands up in front of the math class, and waits while another teacher translates her lesson. So do the English speaking kids. And wait, and wait, and wait.....
Louisiana's education budget, not surprisingly, did not have funds in it for all these Hispanics, so they are twenty million in the hole. The feds are not picking up the tab. The President's kids go to private schools, of course, so it's no skin off his posterior what's happening to kids in public schools anywhere. I don't guess it matters, since most teenagers either drop out of school or can't read and write when they graduate anyway. Even Al Jazerra, which vehemently attacked those who said the U.S. couldn't be the land of milk and honey for all these third world folks, is now saying that between exotic new diseases and the collapse of educational systems maybe it isn't working out too well for the U.S. There's also the fact that the public is supporting all these thousands of bocas inutil financially and probably will be for as long as they live.
As soon as he can, Obama will use his newly declared and largely illegal executive orders to legitimize what he's already done in terms of letting this flood of dross into the U.S.
In Ferguson, Missouri the carnival goes on. What a sweet opportunity to get out and do a little shopping without the hassle of having to pay for anything. I was going to go up there and "protest" too, maybe pick up some new tennis shoes and few other things. Then I found out that the Walmart in Ferguson has evacuated all the ammo from their store, in anticipation of being looted by "race freedom fighters", so I guess it isn't worth the trip.
I don't know that there is the slightest thing that can be done about any of this. It seems like events have taken on a life of their own, and we are just along for the ride. I do believe, though, that this will be a self correcting time line and that big changes are in the offing for us all. I can't guarantee we will enjoy them, though. Interesting times, indeed.
