Non Swine Flu

U.S. Officials
Want 'Swine' Out Of Flu Name

What should we call it?

H1N1 doesn't have a nice ring.

The Israelis have dubbed it the Mexican flu.

Any ideas?

Highly Engaged

The White House says that Barack Obama is "highly engaged" in monitoring the swine flu outbreak that has spread over the border from Mexico into the US. He received a briefing before playing golf for five hours at a course in Andrews Air Force Base on Sunday.


Obama's Host Dies From 'Flu-like Symptoms'

While the Mexican papers are saying Felipe Solis died of pneumonia and not flu.

I guess journalism today is all about taking dramatic license and not reporting the facts.

Bea Arthur 1922- 2009

I was saddened to hear of Bea Arthur's death today at 86. I will always remember her as Maude Finley of "Maude" and later as Dorothy Zbornak in "Golden Girls", among other memorable roles.

Arthur's ascerbic wit and her incredible sense of comedic timing will be missed.

RIP Bea.

Free To Good Home

Cat Blog Friday

For this Cat Blog Friday...

... a cat who was unfortunate enough to attend a meeting headed by Obama.


Happy Friday, everybody!

The Droning One

From comes this Breaking Snooze...

Barack-a-Bye Baby -- Obama Advisor Nods Off

Lawrence Summers, Director of the White House's National Economic Council, was caught dozing off during a meeting with credit card officials.

This is one of the dangers of long, monotonous speeches in which there is much talk, but very little of substance is actually said.

Thank goodness Larry wasn't behind the wheel of a car during BO's tedious droning...

Droning and driving doesn't mix.

Earth Day

Because I love the Earth every single day of the year, today I felt the need to highlight my third favorite planet, Saturn.

The Cassini probe has phoned home some fantastic photos of Saturn recently ...

Cosmic Close-up: Sensational Images Of Saturn Show The Ringed Planet In Incredible Detail

Funny how photos of the cosmos make my earthly troubles seem small in comparison, but make my spirit soar in near infinity.

Senator's Husband Cashes In On Crisis: Feinstein Sought $25 Billion For Agency That Awarded Contract To Spouse

This is no accident... shame on you, Diane Feinstein (D-CA).

People, what will it take to rid ourselves of these greedy career politicians who are too busy stuffing their pockets with our money to care about running the country?

National Weed Day?

I guess I'm not as informed as I like to think I am because I had no idea that some think of today as National Weed Day.

All I know is, last night my daughter was going to make brownies for her best friend's birthday and then she had a change of heart because she thought the school would think it was some sort of stunt and, as an honor student, she didn't want the needless hassle.

Are you as out of the loop as I am?

Cat Blog Friday

If you are a conservative or ex-military or christian or just an average American who believes in lower taxes and smaller government, don't let the Obama administration or Janet Napolitano, the head of Homeland Security, do this to your cat or to you!

Happy Friday everybody!

Big Sister

Janet Napolitano, the head of the Department of Homeland Security, is on the job and watching out for the enemies of our country.

Movie Goodness

My cubelets, OK my daughters, went to see a movie today and they took this photo of the new Star Trek movie preview that was in the lobby.


OK, I'm a geek, but I'm excited!

Cat Blog Friday

For this Cat Blog Friday only a totally stressed out cat will do because Tax Week always stresses me out.

Hope you're having a happier Friday than I am.

Beer Here

On April 7th, 1933, Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed the Beer and Wine Revenue Act that allowed for the production and distribution of beer and wine again after Prohibition was repealed.

So, don't forget to raise your glasses in celebration of one of the best things FDR ever did for America.

Obama Looking For A Teleprompter

The Question That Flummoxed The Great Orator

Of course I would use quotation marks around the words the great orator, but I still give the Brits kudos for saying what our own MSM doesn't.

BO Bows?

Clarice Feldman at the American Thinker thinks it's most unbecoming conduct for the President of the United States...

Obama Bows Down To Saudi King

To be fair, the photo isn't clear, Obama may not be bowing at all...

He might be kissing the moslem monarch's large ring or snorting some lines of proferred coke, you know, just to be congenial.

Oh Margaret!

I wish one of the G20 leaders would gift the Obamas with a clue because they sorely need one.

The Man In The Coffee Beans

The "illusion" is that this is just a picture of coffee beans; but it is not. Can you find a man's face among the beans?

Some say that if you find the man in 3 seconds or less, the right half of your brain may be more well developed than most.

PS: This is not a trick. A man's face is really hidden among the beans.

Do you know who the man is?
