Cat Blog Friday

For this Cat Blog Friday...

...a cat looking out for snipers.

Happy Friday, everybody!

What Hillary said about her one trip to Bosnia: "I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base."

What really happened:

CBS Exposes Hillary Clinton Bosnia Trip

There is no way you can get away with lies like this anymore.

Is Hillary out of her Balkan mind?

Typical White Logic

Senator Obama claims "that to fear a black person on the street more than a white person is a racial "stereotype", "bred" into us".

Randall Hovan has a piece in The American Thinker that crunches the numbers and proves Obama's statement about his grandmother's fear of a strange black man being 'a typically white reaction' is not based on the facts.

Typical White Fact-Based Reasoning

Blacks are 13% of the population but commit 51.2% of the murders...

Hmmmm... perhaps Obama should've paid more attention to his grandmother and less to Pastor Wright.

Dog Satori

Buddhist Dog Prays For Worldly Desires

While the Buddhist monks pray for enlightenment, temple pet Conan, a chihuahua, prays for... rawhide chewies.

Who could resist that?

Hulu Time

If you haven't browsed , then you're missing out on an eclectic mix of old and new TV shows, movies, popular clips, videos.

It's still in the beta stage, but all in all, a good site to explore.

Doggy Sweaters

Hair Of The Dog: The Animal Lovers Who Turned Their Dead Pets' Coats Into Woolly Jumpers

From the headline, you might think this is a bit macabre, but it turns out to be more a bad fashion statement than anything weird.

Armed America

In light of the arguments being heard at the Supreme Court, I thought it would be
interesting to look at some armed Americans:

Armed America: Portraits Of Gun Owners In Their Homes a project by Kyle Cassidy who traveled 15,000 miles over two years photographing Americans in their homes with their guns.

I find it amazing that so many people are willing to allow this look into their private lives all for some dude writing a book.

Persistence Of Memory

Amazing Memory Man Never Forgets

Brad Williams, 51-year-old radio anchor in La Crosse, Wisconsin has hyperthymesia, the ability to recall the most trifling dates and details about his life.

The images of your life replaying in your head like a movie, over again, in loops of infinite regress... imagine what a gift and a burden this affliction could be.


I can't usually remember where I left my car keys ;-)

Arthur C. Clarke 1917-2008

I was saddened to hear that science fiction writer Sir Arthur C Clarke has died aged 90 in his adopted home of Sri Lanka.

The visionary author of over 100 books, who predicted the existence of satellites, was most famous for his short story "The Sentinel," which was expanded into the novel on which Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey" was based.

Marking his “90th orbit of the sun” in December, the author said he did not feel "a day over 89" and made three birthday wishes: for ET to call, for man to kick his oil habit and for peace in Sri Lanka.

It's sad to think that the body of work of this wonderful author has now ended. Now I will be forced to look around for some of his less well-known books that I may have missed over the years.


Auto Names

New Car Names -- How They Get 'em

Fascinating look at how new cars get their names...

I'm not too happy about the psychobabble they spew about XTerra buyers.

Edgy? Dangerous?

I just wanted a smallish SUV that was more truck-like than stationwagonish.


Racy Speech

Obama is set to give a big speech today about race in America...

and unity...

and hope...

and change...

I could pontificate about it here, but Thomas Sowell says is so much better:

Double Life Of Barack Obama: Wright Is Wrong For America.

Obama has a lot of explaining to do.

Happy Happy

A toast to my blog buddies...

"May your heart be light and happy,
May your smile be big and wide,
And may your pockets always have
a coin or two inside!"

And a joke...

A man goes into a bar and seats himself on a stool. The bartender looks at him and says, "What'll it be buddy?"

The man says, "Set me up with seven whiskey shots and make them doubles." The bartender does this and watches the man slug one down, then the next, then the next, and so on until all seven are gone almost as quickly as they were served. Staring in disbelief, the bartender asks why he's doing all this drinking.

"You'd drink them this fast too if you had what I have."

The bartender hastily asks, "What do you have pal?"

The man quickly replies, "I have a dollar."


I'd appreciate it if you left a joke for me

Polluting Teddy

Ted Kennedy Dumping Diesel Fuel Into Nantucket Sound

I don't know how much longer this will be available on the Cape Code Times, so I'm reproducing an excerpt here:

"By now every Cape Codder has heard our senior US senator Ted Kennedy proclaiming his resistence to the Cape Wind project on Nantucket Sound because, as he said, "that's where I sail."

'He has called Nantucket Sound "a national treasure", but his love and respect doesn't not extend to his own habits as these photos of him dumping diesel fuel from the bilge of his yacht Mya into the same waters he tries to prevent others from using for renewable energy projects.'

Oh, what tripe. Massachusetts liberals are just getting what they vote into office election after election.

What am I thinking? Teddy will just blame it on the little people who pilot his yacht and it will all blow over. The next re-election will stay on track.

What's a few shellfish and swimmers?

Cat Blog Friday

For this Cat Blog Friday...

...a cat contemplates the digits of pi.

Happy Pi Day, everybody!

Gas Bag

I'm not advocating that you watch Keith Olbermann's frothy rant about Clinton's reaction to the Ferraro remarks because your head might explode. I merely include it here for those who are gluttons for punishment.

That said, for Olbermann to think that Hillary is being misled by advisors is naive, even for him.

Has there ever been such a impassioned example of while liberal guilt and gullibility rolled up into a saliva-drenched ball of piffle?

What's the frequency (on your planet), Keith?

Another One Bites The Dust

After actively defending her pro-Hillary statement all day...

Ferraro Steps Down

UPDATE: Ferraro's note to Hillary:

"Dear Hillary –
I am stepping down from your finance committee so I can speak for myself and you can continue to speak for yourself about what is at stake in this campaign.

The Obama campaign is attacking me to hurt you.

I won't let that happen.

Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do to make this a better world for my children and grandchildren.

You have my deep admiration and respect.


Another one just hangs in the wind...

Pro Jerk

Pro Golfer Isenhour Apologizes For Killing Hawk, Humane Society Taking Action

This made me so angry. You can bet your bottom dollar that had I been standing around while this jerk took shot after shot at this beautiful creature, I'd have had a few choice things to say.

Cat Blog Friday

For this Cat Blog Friday I was torn between a borg cat...

... and a delightful video of kittens play-fighting that my daughter thought was a hoot. The funny part is how the third kitten breaks up the feline scuffle.

And I thought, why not do both?

Happy Friday, everybody!

I've been busy collating tax data for my accountant, but I did want to mention the new addition to Jeri "Seven Of Nine" Ryan's family...

Oscar Winner Cotillard Backs 9/11 Conspiracy Theories

Also a pinhead.

Cotillard also thinks the moon landings were fake too.

She's at home with the Hollywood left.
