The United States Senate passed a resolution Thursday denouncing an ad in the New York Times, paid for by the liberal, anti-war MoveOn.org., that questioned the patriotism and impugned the integrity of General David H. Petraeus, the American Commander in Iraq. The republican party has been outraged by the audacity of MoveOn.Org, as has many democrats. While I am not a huge fan of the manner that the war is being conducted in Iraq, I am an American and I support our troops no matter where they are or what they're doing. With the outrage of September 11, 2001, and the constant flag burning and protests by foreign entities, I'm personally about fed up with these assholes !
My humble opinion notwithstanding, I am constantly amazed at the stand taken by presidential candidates (and all other political candidates) when it comes to defending an outright insult to the military. The resolution passed by a vote of 72 to 25, with the following notable votes and/or statements regarding the vote; a) Hillary Clinton voted against the resolution, b) Rudy Giuliani strongly criticized Ms.Clinton's remarks on the vote against the resolution, while not bothering to mention how many times he has flip-flopped on his own actions and statements. c) Oback Hussein Obama (yep, that's his real name, folks) did not bother to vote, covering his freshman year senator, you want to run for what?, ass.
If you want to be president, it seems to me that you need to be a Republocrat, i.e.(that is, for the hard of understanding), a person that combines the strong points of both parties, votes his heart and conscience, and honestly represents the best interests of the citizens of the United States of America. We currently have a bumbling, uneducated, inept President, who represents money, power and oil interests. We also have an inept, do nothing Congress, whose main goals (aside from pork barreling) seem to be voting along party lines, thus insuring the usual impasse that is the result of same.
My current choice for president of the United States was and still is Sammy Davis Jr., a dead, black, one-eyed, Jewish man. I guarantee he would accomplish more than any of the current candidates. As my pal, Forrest Gump, would say, "That's all I have to say about that."
The Pictures: Politics is the theme for today with pictures of General Petraeus, Hillary Clinton, Rudy Giuliani and Oback Obama. Some of the pictures are flattering, some are not. I don't particularly care because some of the things that they sometimes do and say rub me the wrong way !

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: Astudy conducted by UCLA's Department of Psychology, reveals that the kind of face a woman finds attractive on a man can differ, depending where she is in her menstrual cycle.
For example, if she is ovulating, she is attracted to men with strong and rugged features. If she is menstruating or menopausal, she tends to be more attracted to a man with duct tape over his mouth and a spear lodged in his chest, while he is on fire.
One Saturday afternoon, a man was sitting in his lawn chair, drinking a beer and watching his wife mow the lawn. His neighbor from accross the street was so outraged, she came over and shouted, "You lazy bastard, you should be hung!"
The man took a sip from his cold beer, wiped the foam off his mouth, lifted his sunglasses and stared into the face of his nosy-assed neighbor and calmly said, " I am, that's why she's mowing the lawn."
That's it for today, my little tater tots, See you tonight at Lakes Cafe and more tomorrow.
Post Script: It's 7:45 p.m., Saturday and I'm behind as usual, therefore, howsomever, consequently and such as, I will make my next provocative, interesting yet, flacid and flatulent entry, such as, on Monday. Have a nice weekend and, like the man who was overcome with a severe case of attention deficity and continually surfed the radio station, thereby annoying all other listeners,..., Please,
Stay Tuned !
