The News in Zingers

By Argus Hamilton





http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Psychology Today reported a study which found that the Millennial generation's obsession with their smart phones is causing Narcissistic Personality Disorder in many of them. I know where they should live. Los Angeles is populated by six million people who are too good for their hometowns.

• President Trump while in Iraq Thursday challenged Democrats to compromise on the Mexico border wall and end the government shutdown. We all know how this ends. By the time the Senate Republicans finish compromising on the border wall it'll be a three-thousand-mile-long privacy hedge.

• Barack Obama was honored with L.A.'s 134 Freeway being named for him Friday. It's always jam-packed. Yet five minutes after the name change, the freeway was promising commuters that if you like to get to work on time with no traffic, you can get to work on time with no traffic, guaranteed.

• The Los Angeles City Council voted to name the 134 Freeway after President Obama. This is a huge freeway that connects the Ventura Freeway in Burbank a dozen miles to the Foothill Freeway in Pasadena. The Obama Freeway is now the only freeway in the world with twelve left lanes.

• Ronald Reagan's economic advisor Art Laffer Wednesday ripped Congress for spending us into a twenty-two trillion-dollar national debt. He blamed the wild market swings on lawmakers for over-spending. Politicians are like sperm, one in a million turns out to be an actual human being.

• President Trump took an unannounced trip to Iraq to visit U.S. troops stationed there. He left behind the government shutdown, the Special Counsel, and an arriving Democratic Congress out for his scalp. President Trump will go down as the first president to visit a war zone for some peace and quiet.


• The University of Massachusetts ordered a co-ed to take down a sign on her dorm window that cursed Nazis, because it wasn't inclusive. It's not like these kids have any idea what they're talking about. The New Webster's Dictionary defines a Nazi as anybody who disagrees with you on Facebook.

• Pew Research reported that by the year 2040 Islam will replace Judaism as the second largest U.S. religion. Muslims are really good people, and I see them on my jog every day through Beverly Hills. However, so many Muslims are moving into California that it hardly feels like Mexico anymore.

• Canada lodged a quiet protest against China for taking two Canadians hostage after the Canadians arrested a Chinese woman for spying. They are the world's most polite people. Canadians just launched a Go Fund Me page to build a four-thousand mile long privacy hedge along the U.S. border.

• Kevin Spacey released a video begging to return to House of Cards Monday. The same day he was charged with sexual assault on an underage boy. In my forty-two years in L.A., I've seen myself what cocaine does to people, and I have seen what fame does to people. I still can't tell the difference.

• The American Medical Association reports that the number of people donating their bodies to medical schools is way up. Many medical schools say they've never before had more cadavers on hand. It sounds like Medicare patients have finally figured out a way to get doctors to look at them.
