New Wonder

Superhero Wonder Woman Gets Trendy Make Over

Since when are leggings trendy? Or tough looking?

I guess it's inevitable that the Wonder Woman brand will change with the times, but, to me, she will always look like Lynda Carter.

Best Buds

This photo is bothersome on so many levels...oh, where do I start?

They must have searched long and hard to find the smallest table in the region for BO and Medvedev to dine over just to symbolize the closeness between Russia and the US.

It's love, people. Love.

Then they dined on hamburgers. Hamburgers? Here I should note that it's OK because Michelle Obama's food directives only apply to the pogues of the world and not the elites, hence BO's pass for excessive drinking, smoking, and love of junk food.

Let's move on to this news from our 'friends':

Russian Spy Ring Suspects Busted! 10 Alleged Secret Agents Arrested In U.S.: Accused Russian Spies Allegedly Used Cold War Tactics To Send Information To Moscow

And to this news from our other 'friends':

China Denies Military Exercise Aimed At U.S.

Yeah. Our friends.

If you don't think the wolves are circling, you are deluding yourself.

What Is Wrong With This Picture?

Authorities in Georgia on Friday tore down a monument to Soviet dictator Josef Stalin in his birthplace of Gori because a memorial to Stalin has no place in the Georgia of the 21st Century, said Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili.

Stalin Monument Dismantled In Georgian Hometown

God bless them.

Yet, here in Bedford, Virginia, a statue of Stalin has been erected for a National D-Day Memorial...

Stalin Bust Installed At D-Day Memorial

What kind of insanity is this?

I fear that we may have reached the tipping point, people.

I hope I'm wrong and the country comes to its senses come November.

Cat Blog Friday

For this Cat Blog Friday...

... Oscar, the Bionic Cat.

Amputee Cat Gets Bionic Feet

Well, he's not really bionic, but the surgery is an amazing breakthrough for amputees.

Happy Friday, everybody!

Fly Attractor

Oh, to be the proverbial fly on the wall while the IMPOTUS chews out General McChrystal for revealing some inconvenient truths...

Unwelcome Truths: McChrystal's Great Service

Funny, I don't recall the MSM being upset about the breaking of chain of command when General Shinsecki publicly disagreed with the war strategy of his Commander-in-Chief.

Palin Ray?

OK, I wasn't wearing my reading glasses at the time... It's a pain ray!

US Testing Pain Ray In Afghanistan

Interesting concept, still in it's infancy, but I'd still rather be hit by a Palin ray than a Pelosi ray ;-)

Food Raids

Hugo Chavez Spearheads Raids As Food Prices Skyrocket

Sad to see, but this is what inevitably happens when you vote in a commie a$$hat talking about change you can believe in...

Keep the change.

I'd rather keep America free.

Head Case

Human Heads Found In Package On Way To North Texas

Can you imagine being this poor person finding 40-60 heads that were improperly packaged on a plane?

Imagine the puns...

Airheads comes to mind.

Cumulative Voting?

This is one of the most stupid things I've heard since... well, since yesterday because there's a lot of stupid stuff going around lately:

Residents Get 6 Votes Each In Suburban NY Election

One person, one vote. Period.

Is everyone losing their minds?

No Duh!

Minnesota Wildlife
Managers Ask Drivers To Brake For Turtles As They Try To Cross Roads

If it isn't intuitively obvious to brake for turtles, then I propose a new sign:

Why does a cube cross the road?

I love Ayn Rand's answer:

It was crossing the road because of its own rational choice to do so. There cannot be a collective unconscious; desires are unique to each individual.

Science Relics

Galileo Lost Tooth, Fingers Go On Show In Florence

The tooth, finger and thumb (recently found by an art collector) along with another finger and a vertebrae, were cut from Galileo's corpse by scientists and historians during a burial ceremony 95 years after his death in 1642.

The remains, along with two telescopes, a compass and a wealth of other instruments designed by Galileo, are the main attraction at the Galileo Museum beginning today.

Fascinating in a macabre way.

From the Wall Street Journal...

The Alien In The White House

I want to make it clear that Obama is alien to American ways, but he is no Mister Spock.

'Tis The Season

There are plenty of heebie-jeebies-inducing bugs in Florida all year round, but this time of year our space is being invaded by the Eastern lubber grasshopper (Romalea microptera or R. guttata, depending on your source).

The lubbers are fond of most vegetation, but in my yard, they are especially fond of our grape leaves - which we harvest and use to make stuffed grape leaves!

They also seem to enjoy just hanging on the pool enclosure. Go figure.

They give me the creeps.

Stealth Air Force One

Air Force General: Mr. President, we've just invented an invisibility cloak for Air Force One.

Obama: No shit?

General: That's right, sir. Will you be going along on its maiden flight?

Obama: Wouldn't miss it for the world.

General: Have a good trip, sir.

Heh heh.

Resigned To Term

From The American Spectator comes this article which should be retitled, "Wishful Thinking."

The Coming Resignation Of Barack Obama

Do you see BO and family willingly leaving the perks of the White House?

Hell no! They won't go without an election.
