This is Super Bowl weekend and there will be parties galore. As per my ususal, I'll be off to AREA 51 at Lakes Cafe to see the new Karaoke emcee, have a few cocktails and ostensibly solve all current local, national and (such as) world problems. There's a chance I might even make a wager or two as to the Super Bowl winner. I like both teams but my prediction is the New England Patriots winning by ten points. The current spread is N.E giving 12 points and if that goes up to 15 points, I'll take N.Y.
That aside, I'm sure AREA 51 will be loaded (no pun intended) tonight and it should be a fun evening. If the new karoake emcee is any good, I might even sing a song or two. We'll see !
The democratic debate on CNN was better than I thought it would as the candidates stayed on course and attempted to field and answer the issues presented to them. One of the most important issues they didn't address in detail was how they would close and enforce our borders. They spoke of how to deal with the illegal aliens that are in the United States, but not how to stop the daily flow of illegals through our porous borders.
The subject was not brought up in detail by the moderator, Wolf Blitzer, who seemed to be more interested in trying to corner Hillary Clinton than asking important questions about our borders. His obvious partiality to Barack Obama was evident as he seemed to be biased in his questions posed to the candidates.
Since one of my desires is to advise and inform the public, I am submitting the following graphic to answer the age old question about a bear's choice of location for bowel movement.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: The democratic debates were held in Los Angeles, California last evening and I would be remiss if I didn't submit to you the following information, to wit:
In 1850, California became a state. It had no electricity and no money. Almost everyone spoke Spanish and there were daily gunfights in the street. Basically, it was just like California today, except the women had real tits and the men didn't hold hands.
My pal, Anne sent me the following (edited and abridged):
A woman was buying a large bag of Purina dog chow at the grocery store and was about to check out. The young woman behind her asked if she had a dog. Since the questionwas obviously stupid and she had time on her hands, she told the young woman that she didn't have a dog and was starting the Purina Diet again.
She told her that it was a perfect diet and that all you really had to do was to load your pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat one every time you felt hungry. She left the grocery smiling smugly at her witty little prank.
On the way home she was involved in an automobile accident and was taken to the hospital. She was released the same day having only suffered bruises and a swollen face.
Two days later she returned to the grocery store to purchase more Purina dog chow and once again was ready to check out when the same young woman she had told about the diet entered into the checkout lane behind her. The lady immediately recognized her and was horrified to see her bruised and swollen face. She explained that she had just been released from the hospital.
The young lady exclaimed, "Oh my god, was that a reaction from the dog chow?" The woman replied, "No, I stepped off the curb to smell an Irish setter's ass and a truck hit me."
