I sniggered the other day. Well, I mention it because any signs of good humour from me are rare these days - waddya mean ya noticed! But, as dear Oscar (such a darling boy!) once said, 'it would take a heart of stone not to laugh' ... at Baltimore! Yes, indeed, that miserable heap of slum iniquity which has been run by a Democrat party apparat for fifty years and which today has not a single Republican elected official. All a bit embarrassing, you would have thought, to a Democrat president who has been in power for six years but not a bit of it, according to freebeacon.com:
President Obama claimed last Tuesday that if the Republican-controlled Congress would implement his policies to make “massive investments in urban communities,” they could “make a difference right now” in the city, currently in upheaval following the death of Freddie Gray.
See, it was all the fault of those beastly conservatives stopping Father Christmas President Obama from dishing out the 'freebies'. Well, if you didn't already know that Obama is the lying liar's lying liar you do now:
The city of Baltimore received over $1.8 billion [my emphasis] from President Barack Obama’s stimulus law, including $467.1 million to invest in education and $26.5 million for crime prevention. [...]
According to Recovery.gov, one of Baltimore’s central ZIP codes, 21201, received the most stimulus funding in the city, a total of $837,955,866. The amount included funding for 276 awards, and the website reports that the spending had created 290 jobs in the fourth quarter in 2013.
Bless my soul, 290 jobs created! Fantastic! That works out at, er, well, ahem, roughly $2,880,503 per job! Well done, Mr. President, awfully good show and I'm glad your socialism is working so well for you. Of course, there will be a lot more work to do now repairing all the damage done by the, um, grateful residents of Baltimore!
