Because of a Moody’s downgrade, Chicago finances may be about to get dramatically worse.
Our ruling class act like they know what they are doing. They may even be deluded enough to believe their own deceptions. But the truth is that the “stability” they claim to bring society can collapse at any moment. Yes they may manage to keep things going for awhile, but the end will happen quickly when it comes.
All of this may soon get demonstrated in the case of Chicago.

While the White House insists that wages for workers should be raised, it actually pays nothing to some of its workers.
People at the White House are concerned about Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. They don’t think there are enough of them in Washington DC. The Weekly Standards quotes the White House announcement:
“Calling All Students: Apply for the Summer 2015 White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders Internship Program.” The announcement provides details Read more [...]
As in any zombie apocalypse, a small group of Statist zombies churn out an army of zombies—our children.
This week I was told about a teenager who stated during a church youth group discussion that capitalism is bad, because it fosters greed, and the best system is communism (though it doesn’t seem to work in practice). Previous discussions have included profuse adoration for the “brilliant” Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton, and assurances that either would make a fabulous President.
Now, Read more [...]
While Eric Holder wishes it were easier to prosecute civil rights cases, he throws out his own imaginary accusations to show where that would lead.
Everything you need to know about Eric Holder and his failed ideology is contained in the headline and sub-head of this Politico article:
Eric Holder's parting shot: It's too hard to bring civil rights cases
In an exit interview, the attorney general says his critics may be partly driven by race.
Mr. Holder, the reality is that it must be hard Read more [...]

But while they say they are conducting a criminal investigation, what are the chances that this is not going to be a cover-up?
Finally! The Washington Post reports, “IRS watchdog reveals Lois Lerner missing emails now subject of criminal probe.”
The IRS’s inspector general confirmed Thursday it is conducting a criminal investigation into how Lois G. Lerner’s emails disappeared, saying it took only two weeks for investigators to find hundreds of tapes the agency’s chief had told Read more [...]
It seems everyone wants Jeb Bush to prove himself by speaking to CPAC Conservatives.
The Washington Post makes it seem so reasonable:
The last time Jeb Bush spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference, he delivered blunt talk — an unwelcome lecture, in the view of many — about the problems with the Republican Party.
“All too often we’re associated with being ‘anti’ everything,” Bush said in 2013. “Way too many people believe Republicans are anti-immigrant, anti-woman, Read more [...]
Americans are playing chicken with the government by refusing to buy insurance, apparently hoping that the government will back down rather than impose the penalties.
Frankly, I find the idea of risking the IRS penalty to be a scary prospect. But I am still grateful for the Americans enacting a boycott.
According to the Washington Times, “Taxpayers duck Obamacare tax, snubbing IRS.”
Taxpayers are already telling their accountants they plan to stiff the IRS on the Obamacare tax, saying Read more [...]
Thinking ... because someone has to do it!
So few people do that anymore...think, that is. It is so much easier to waste your time watching the boob tube where the talking heads tell you what to think, or perhaps sports programming, where the goal is to occupy your mind so that you don't think at all. Or better yet, they keep you glued to your hand-held device while you waste away the hours.
Well, I like to think, and today I would like to share just a few of my thoughts with you. Read more [...]

Being a White House tool can be very profitable.
The Washington Free Beacon reports, “Lois Lerner Received $129K in Bonuses.”
Former IRS official Lois Lerner received $129,300 in bonuses between 2010 and 2013, records obtained through the Freedom of Information Act show.
