Catchup Monday

Clearing the desktop of a few wayward stories:

1.  Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-NY, a fervent House champion of Dear Leader's "one size fits all" health care Ponzi scheme (including the very contentious public option), is now arguing that New York City is "more equal" than everyone else and thus deserving of a waiver from having to struggle under that onerous burden of a program: 

"Weiner, who is likely to run for mayor of New York, said that because of the city’s special health care infrastructure, his office was looking into alternatives that might make more sense."

But nobody else in the country should be allowed to, of course, except for the various entities who wanted this execrable legislation in the first place:

"'The administration needs to make this argument more forcefully,' he said. 'A lot of people who got waivers were … people who are our friends.'"

No need, sir, we peasants have already received that message loud and clear.

2.  Police in Birmingham, England have mistakenly raided the same wrong house an unbelievable 41 times over the past year and a half, making an innocent couple's lives a living hell: 

"Matthew Jillard and Claire Hayes told last week how they have suffered 18 months of their home being mixed up with another 100 yards away."

This is a clear indicator of how beaten into submission the average English subject really is, because had the same circumstances happened to us our lawsuit against the idiots down at the local cop shop would have been filed after the second incident, much less allowing the apparent buffoons to rack up double-digit dangerous (not to mention illegal) invasions of our home.

Aren't some of these officers who participate in these multiple mistaken raids smart enough to think "Hey, we've been here, oh, thirty or so times before and it's always a mistake.  Maybe we should double-check with HQ before stepping square on our dongs once again."

The couple, who have lived at the address for over 10 years, has now announced that they are moving to avoid further harassment.  We don't see why they are the ones who have to leave:

"Last night West Midlands police said: 'Despite measures put in place to prevent such an occurrence, it appears human error has led to officers attending the incorrect address. We will be contacting them to apologise and discuss the matter further.'"

How about canning some of the idiot administrators who keep authorizing the continual abuse of these innocent people?  We imagine that sort of needed action would bring these sorts of inexcusable "errors" to an abrupt halt.
