At least they're white. Well, most of them.

Seriously, though, Thomas Sowell wrote an interesting column a little while back comparing the white welfare class in Britain to the lot of minorities in America. Kind of gives you hope for our future. I mean, sort of.

Sowell is just a race traitor; his opinions are invalid.

Obama wants people to quit bashing his jeans

(CNN) - President Barack Obama hit back at critics calling him out for his "mom jeans.
Quote:
"I've been unfairly maligned about my jeans," Obama said Friday in an interview with radio host Ryan Seacrest.

"The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans. There was one episode like four years ago in which I was wearing some loose jeans, mainly because I was out on the pitcher's mound and I didn't want to feel confined while I was pitching, and I think I've paid my penance for that. I got whacked pretty good. Since that time, my jeans fit very well."

The topic of the President's ill-fittingly jeans came up when Seacrest asked Obama about his recent trip to the Gap where he did some shopping for daughters Sasha and Malia.

The President's denim has had a tough go of it over the years.

The "mom jeans" joke came to be early in his first term when he threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Major League Baseball All-Star Game.

Former Alaska Gov. and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin brought the joke back in the political spotlight last week when talking about the turmoil in Ukraine during an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity.

"People are looking at Putin as one who wrestles bears and drills for oil," Palin said. "They look at our President as one who wears mom jeans and equivocates and bloviates."

Obama's interview with Seacrest comes as the White House revs up its last minute push to get Americans to sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act before the March 31 open enrollment deadline.

During the interview, Obama continued his get-covered pitch, saying people should sign up because "you never know what kind of curveballs life throws at you."

The results were striking: The shift away from cash was associated with "a significant decrease in the overall crime rate and the specific offenses of burglary, assault, and larceny in Missouri and a decline in arrests.” In other words, the counties saw a decline in specific crimes when they switched away from cash welfare. The researchers go on:


EBT implementation is associated with a 16.6 percent reduction in total crime rate per 100,000 persons. The magnitudes of the effects for individual crime outcomes are also sizeable, suggesting declines of 22.7 percent for assault, 13 percent for burglary, and 16.3 percent for larceny. While the effect is negative for motor vehicle theft, it is relatively small in magnitude and statistically indistinguishable from zero

Credit cards reduce crime!
