    Two Statements on Irony

    This is circulating around the web via email, but I thought I would post it for those who have not seen it.

    Two Statements that speak volumes:
    Irony 1
    "We are told NOT to judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics." BUT on the other hand....... "We are also encouraged TO judge ALL Gun Owners by the actions of a few lunatics." How is that supposed to work.....??????

    Irony 2.
    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing this year the greatest amount of free Meals and Food Stamps ever, to 47 million people as of the most recent figures available in 2013.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us "Please Do Not Feed the Animals." Their stated reason for the policy is because "The animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."

    Thus Ends Today's Lesson On Irony

    So many other examples abound.

    Our world is going to hell in a socialist made basket.

    That is the way it works. For the governement to give one person $0.25, they have to take a dollar away from someone else. The rest is lost in government inefficiency and bureaucracy. The governement sucks up more money in internal costs than they pay out in benefits.

    That doesn't even take into account the fraudulent payouts to ineligible recipients.
    Russian Diplomats Scammed Medicaid for $1.5 Million, Complaint Claims

    Dec. 5, 2013
    By AARON KATERSKY and CHRISTINA NG

    Four dozen Russian diplomats and their spouses have fraudulently been using Medicaid to cover the costs of pregnancy and child birth over the last decade, costing American taxpayers $1.5 million, the FBI said today in a criminal complaint.

    The complaint unsealed today claims that from 2004 to 2013 there were 63 births to Russian diplomats stationed in New York, and 58 of them were paid for by Medicaid.

    "Being a diplomat does not give you the right to commit health care fraud," FBI special agent in charge of the New York field office George Venizelos said at a news conference today.

    Medicaid is designed to help low-income individuals and families afford health care. Recipients must generally be U.S. citizens or qualified immigrants, the complaint explains. Diplomats, including their spouses and children, are not considered to be qualified immigrants.

    However, proof of U.S. citizenship is not required for pregnant women completing an "Access NY Healthcare" application, according to the documents, because the unborn child is presumed to acquire citizenship when they are born in the country.

    Part of being on the left requires a total inability to recognize irony. It's just totally lost on them. Never fails to amaze me.

    That's ironic.
