Well she was 51 years old, so it is possible she already passed on her idiot DNA to the next generation...

“Of course, if there had been a Republican President in office, this would be front page news across the nation...But, since Obama is King and bad things can’t be blamed on him, this will be swept up and forgotten about in a day or so.”

Good post. This reminds me of the homeless problem back in the 80’s. When Bush the Elder was president homelessness was front page news across the nation. But the very moment Bill Clinton was elected, it suddenly ceased to be a problem and the media went silent. As you said, the whole topic was swept under the rug and never heard from again.

I our area, junior high and high school kids used to crawl into these kinds of boxes to make out.

“As for placing one more law on the books because someone might be stupid enough to crawl inside one of these boxes...”

The regulation possibilities are endless, as they usually are. Bureaucrats across the country will hold hearings, pass new laws, and establish whole new departments with legions of “enforcement personnel” to monitor the drop boxes. Of course the existing boxes will be redesigned, courtesy of tax payer funded grants.

‘The very moment BilL Clinton was elected, homelessness ceased to be a problem.’ It would be very interesting to make a side-by-side list of problems that were huge under Republicans only to cease to exist the moment a Democrat was elected. For that matter, to make a list of all things that used to be a problem and then were dropped (ie ‘fear-fads’).

War in Afghanistan
Global cooling
Alar in apples
paper bags (killing trees)

Obviously, this happened because we’re not paying enough in taxes.

There should clearly be a special tax surcharge on all Americans to cover safety doors for these highly dangerous objects, as well as ambulance and healthcare expenses for all thoss trapped inside, together with the cost of their rehabilitaion.

No doubt Obama will get such a tax surcharge passed through his Democratic congress with the help of a few sex- and booze-addled Republicans.

I don’t think so. This is how desperate people are getting in Obama’s ecomomic recovery, and it should be touted as such.

If the press blames Obama it will be because he isn't socialist enough.
