The Weekly Wit & Wisdom of G-Eminem

‎”Get ready for higher food prices, which appear to be just around the corner for U.S.consumers and potentially a crippling burden for the world’s poor.”
Ethanol pumping up food prices – USATODAY.com

A combination of natural calamities and congressional mandates is driving food prices to levels that make some developing nations nervous.

Political Fluency – Can’t believe there are still countries in the world that confiscate citizens’ property. Whoa! Where did this happen?!

I have a friend who is senior in the Wisconsin Department of Revenue. A couple years ago, under the previous administration, the state passed a gas tax increase but then beefed up enforcement to ensure gas stations didn’t pass along the cost to their customers.

It was about as successful as the Obama Administration’s attempt to suspend the laws of economics in this case. In other words, ‘not very’.

“The Obama administration on Monday called on a Mennonite-owned health insurance company to cancel its proposed 11.6 percent rate hike, marking the first time the government has tried to pressure a private company under the new health care law.”

Last evening’s presidential debate on foreign policy was sponsored by Heritage and AEI, virtually guaranteeing the emphasis would be on bombing brown peoples, empire-building and regime-propping. It is a shame the CATO Institute was not a co-sponsor so that the candidates might have had to say something besides recite Cold War-era mantras.

Friend Comment – Yes, neoconservatives are evil racists whose motivation for intervening is because they dislike the skin color of Arabs and Central Asians. Any other leftist tripe you’d like to adopt as your own?

G-Eminem – ‎+1 for clichéd use of ‘leftist tripe’.

While his actions during the actual game were contemptible, there isn’t a court in America that would convict Suh had he instead chosen to stomp on Nickleback during the halftime show.

Friend – ‎… and if it would have been during halftime only you and the 7 other people not taking a bathroom break during nickleback would have seen it

G-Eminem – True. You’d be hard-pressed to find any witnesses of the “crime”.

Friend 2 –  Ok, my cultural chops may need updating, but why was there so much abuse sown on NB the past couple of weeks? What makes them worse than the rest of the bands so far this century?

G-Eminem – I’d like to drizzle some extra virgin olive oil on your cultural chops, grill them to a perfect medium-rare, and smother them in truffle butter.

Political Fluency – I love Ed Schultz. He is a complete cartoon character. Conservatives can never have a Colbert Report show as long as this man is on the air because he will always outdo whatever actor is pretending to be a bombastic Democratic partisan.

G-Eminem hopes you are aware that the global economy is about to totally implode. This is likely to be the last holiday season that resembles anything like the relative prosperity you have know in your life up to this point.
