Strange times

Lee DeCovnick
We live in very strange times, when billons of taxpayer dollars quietly evaporate into thin air; when the IRS openly gives money from citizens to illegals; when massive debt is good for the government but bad for the taxpayers who have to pay the interest; when new jobs are non-existent while our media and government become hysterical over a tropical storm; when we allow Hezb'allah to establish large military and drug distribution bases in Mexico, Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela that sell "white death" to our children; when electric cars come with a $7,500 bribe of taxpayers dollars and still don't sell; when black unemployment continues to exceed Depression-era levels; when unions have become the rabid dogs of the American political system; when you can't sell lemonade without a permit but the ATF can sell weapons to Mexican drug cartels with a permit;  and when you need a picture ID to board a plane, but not to vote.

This Labor Day weekend I'd like to invite the thoughtful readers of American Thinker to comment with their own examples of these very strange times.   Just start with the phrase -- We live in very strange times.
