Talk about overwhelming the system!
There are a lot of things happening in the news this week, some of which will be highlighted in the media and some which will be completely ignored.
Before you proceed, you may want to stop and prepare your favorite beverage, put on some relaxing music and, perhaps, light a candle…
Kagan Confirmed to Supreme Court – The Senate confirmed Elena Kagan to a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court in a vote of 63-37 Thursday. So, a liberal political activist with little judicial experience who will be unable to separate her political views from decisions on the bench has been appointed to the Supreme Court. Perhaps, the most unqualified appointee in the history of this nation.
Food Stamp Use Hit Record 40.8m in May – The number of Americans who are receiving food stamps rose to a record 40.8 million in May as the jobless rate hovered near a 27-year high. Participation has set records for 18 straight months. An average of 40.5 million people, more than an eighth of the population (1 out of 8!!!) will get food stamps each month in the year that began Oct. 1, according to White House estimates.
Let Them Eat Cake – While many of us are struggling, the First Lady Michelle Obama is spending the next few days in a five-star hotel on the chic Costa del Sol in southern Spain with 40 of her “closest friends.” According to CNN, the group is expected to occupy 60 to 70 rooms, more than a third of the lodgings at the 160-room resort. Estimated room rate per night? Up to a staggering $2,500. Just this month, Obama told ABC the First Couple is “not that far removed from what most Americans are going through.”
In DC, No Such Thing as Too Poor For Medical Pot – There’s no such thing as too poor to buy pot if you live in D.C., at least if the marijuana is for a medical condition. That’s part of the conclusion of a new law enacted in the nation’s capital earlier this year. The medical marijuana law allows people to legally obtain the drug for medical reasons. But the law also includes a provision requiring the drug to be provided at a discount to poor residents.
