Time for another episode of Amazing America, the wonderful chronicle of events that happen only in our beloved Amreeka.
* Intern, My Pet Intern – For all ye schmucks who think that Jawaharlal Nehru was a priapic rogue who couldn’t keep his dick in his dhoti, here, read about our American netas:
Slowly, he unbuttoned the top of my shirtdress and touched my breasts.
Then he reached up between my legs and started to pull off my underwear.
I finished unbuttoning my shirtdress and let it fall off my shoulders.
The he in the above excerpt is our national icon, the American Camelot aka President John F.Kennedy. And the she is a 19-year-old virgin intern at the Kennedy White House.
Bet y’all didn’t know that Intern-screwing by our Presidents was in vogue long before Bill Clinton made it unfashionable.
A new biography of John F.Kennedy by, of course, an intern in the Kennedy White Whore House reveals that JFK not only took the 19-year-old’s virginity but also had her give a blow-job to his aide Dave Powers while he watched. If you think it’s gross for a President to behave that way, JFK also asked the intern Mimi to ‘take care’ of his younger brother Edward Kennedy. Bill Clinton was just an Intern-Fucking President but JFK was so much more. He was a serial fucker inside the White House besides being a voyeur and an asshole who popped dangerous sexually arousing drugs under the noses of the interns.

* Republican Killing Machine – Republican leaders are bastards and most Republican voters are blithering idiots.
Well, we all knew that, didn’t we?
But what we didn’t know until recently was that Republicans are no ordinary bastards but deadly bastards.
A new book by NYC psychiatrist James Gilligan based on extensive research has found that the combined homicide-suicide rates rise under Republican Presidents and fall when Democrats are Presidents. This is true for all but 14 years since 1900. Gilligan’s data also shows that states carried by Republicans tend to have higher homicides and suicides and more state-sanctioned executions as well. By the way, murder and manslaughter rates were higher under George W.Bush (Republican) than under President Obama (Democrat). Really!

* Epidemic of Imprisonment – America today has the largest cage in the world. The number of people incarcerated has more than tripled from 1980 to 2010. From 220 per 100,000 in 1980 to 731 per 100,000 in 2010. In an excellent article in the New Yorker writer Adam Gopnik cites experts who blame the high incarceration on America’s process-driven judicial system. Gopnik calls for chipping away at the edges through small acts to end the epidemic of imprisonment (p.77). These acts include decriminalizing marijuana, letting judges use common sense and stopping prison time for drug misdemeanors. But the biggest impetus for sentencing reform, which Gopnik surprisingly does not mention, we think will come from the serious budget constraints most states are currently facing.
