Abbott & Costello on unemployment (Al sent me this).

COSTELLO:  I want to talk about the unemployment rate in America.
ABBOTT:  Good Subject.  Terrible Times.  It’s 5.6%.
COSTELLO:  That many people are out of work?
ABBOTT:  No, that’s 23%.
COSTELLO:  You just said 5.6%.
ABBOTT:  5.6% Unemployed.
COSTELLO:  Right 5.6% out of work.
ABBOTT:  No, that’s 23%.
COSTELLO:  Okay, so it’s  23% unemployed.
ABBOTT:  No, that’s 5.6%.
COSTELLO:  Wait a minute! Is it 5.6% or 23%?
ABBOTT:  5.6% are unemployed.  23% are out of work.
COSTELLO:  If you are out of work you are unemployed.
ABBOTT:  No, Obama said you can’t count the “Out of Work” as the unemployed.  You have to look for work to be unemployed.
COSTELLO:  But they are out of work!!!
ABBOTT:  No, you miss his point.
COSTELLO:  What point?
ABBOTT:  Someone who doesn’t look for work can’t be counted with those who look for work.  It wouldn’t be fair.
COSTELLO:  To whom?
ABBOTT:  The unemployed.
COSTELLO:  But ALL of them are out of work.
ABBOTT:  No, the unemployed are actively looking for work. Those who are out of work gave up looking and if you give up, you are no longer in the ranks of the unemployed.
COSTELLO:  So if you’re off the unemployment roles that would count as less unemployment?
ABBOTT:  Unemployment would go down. Absolutely!
COSTELLO:  The unemployment just goes down because you don’t look for work?
ABBOTT:  Absolutely it goes  down. That’s how it gets to 5.6%. Otherwise it would be 23%.
COSTELLO:  Wait, I got a question for you. That means there are two ways to bring down the unemployment number?
ABBOTT:  Two ways is correct.
COSTELLO:  Unemployment can go down if someone gets a job?
ABBOTT:  Correct.
COSTELLO:  And unemployment can also go down if you stop looking for a job?
ABBOTT:  Bingo.
COSTELLO:  So there are two ways to bring unemployment down, and the easier of the two is to have people stop looking for work.

ABBOTT:  Now you’re thinking like a Democrat.

COSTELLO:  I don’t even know what the hell I just said!

ABBOTT:  Now you’re thinking like Hillary.

Baton Rouge cop killer was an Islamic fanatic

Philadelphia inflicts 1.5 cent-per-ounce soda tax

“Philadelphia becomes 1st major American city with soda tax
Associated Press Published June 16, 2016

Thee tax applies to both sugary and diet beverages. But Democratic Mayor Jim Kenney sold the council on the idea with a plan to spend most of the estimated $90 million in new tax revenue next year to pay for prekindergarten, community schools and recreation centers.”

So A 6-pack of soda will cost over a dollar more. This won’t reduce the financial crisis in the schools as the Philadelphia school district’s biggest expense aside from “instruction,” is $264 million in debt service payments and the Council doesn’t plan to spend any of the soda tax windfall on reducing debt. Maybe a tax on Tea would help.

Neighbor sent this. Is it all true?

Part I:
A. Back off and let those men who want to marry men, marry men.
B. Allow those women who want to marry women, marry women.
C. Allow those folks who want to abort their babies, abort their babies.
D. In three generations, there will be no Democrats.
I love it when a plan comes together; don’t you?!

Part II: 10 Poorest Cities in America (How did it happen?)
City, State, % of People Below the Poverty Level
1. Detroit, MI 32.5%
2. Buffalo, NY 29.9%
3. Cincinnati, OH 27.8%
4. Cleveland, OH 27.0%
5. Miami, FL 26.9%
5. St. Louis, MO 26.8%
7. El Paso, TX 26.4%
8. Milwaukee, WI 26.2%
9. Philadelphia, PA 25.1%
10. Newark, NJ 24.2%

What do the top ten cities (over 250,000 pop.) with the highest poverty rate all have in common?
Detroit, MI – (1st on poverty rate list) hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1961
Buffalo, NY – (2nd) hasn’t elected one since 1954
Cincinnati, OH – (3rd) not since 1984

Einstein once said, ‘The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.’
It is the poor who habitually elect Democrats… Yet they are still POOR.

Part III:
“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people’s Initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what They could and should do for themselves.”
~Abraham Lincoln

“Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by
Letting the government take care of him had better take a much closer look at the American Indian.”
~Henry Ford
