Murder Rate in New York City Falling to Record Lows

Murder Rate in New York City Falling to Record Lows:  New statistics are showing that murders in New York City are at a record low - and are now roughly the same as Wyoming, Montana and South Dakota.  When questioned about the decline, researchers say with the deep social cuts and transfer of wealth under the newly passed GOP Tax Plan, many disillusioned murders are feeling “what’s the point?  The economy’s gonna take care of everything anyway.”

Be Careful What You Ask For:  You can file this one under the old cliché “be careful what you ask for!”  I walked in my local Starbucks and ordered myself an “extra hot” cafe latte, looked over and saw the barista dumping about a half a bottle of Tabasco sauce in it.

Many Questioning the Value of Searching for UFO’s:  With the recent revelations that the US Department of Defense ran a program to investigate unidentified flying object (UFO) sightings, some are wondering if the costs of searching for signs of intelligent life in outer space are really worth it.  And while I don’t have the actual figures, I can see where the costs could be “astronomical.”

Don Trump is our President. We clearly are not intelligent life in this spectrum of time and universe.  Let's not waste money trying to find intelligent life; let it find us and hope that it does before it is too late.

"... the economy's gonna right our frauduloUSnest$." 

Let's hope it's not so catastrophic as that, but if there's one single thing that defines bubble: it will burst.
