How 'bout some negativity

An assessment of issues that thrust the GOP to handsome Congressional gains last week was postponed to gauge the fervent and innumerable retorts made on behalf of the Left's embattled Chosen One.  The finished piece will be out soon enough, but in the meantime I thought sharing some humbling statistics from the November 7 edition of The Commercial Appeal (via the Associated Press and Harper's Index) would be in order:

-- According to the latest government figures, compiled two years ago, an astonishing 73% of Black, 66% of Native American, 53% of Hispanic, 29% of White, and 17% of Asian babies are born to unwed parents.

-- About 10 million American adults, 1-in-31 to be exact, are either incarcerated, on probation, or on parole.

And perhaps most sadly...

-- There has been a 37% increase in the number of buttock-augmentations since 2008.
