First and foremost, an emergency Cat's Ass Trophy (CAT) Award is hereby awarded to AOL for letting AOL journalists know in October know that J-land is shutting down in November. The reason being given is that AOL is not making enough money.
Here's a suggestion. Fire all of the non-English speaking, Indian hacks that are posing as AOL technicians and hire Americans. Then, re-invest time and money into AOL Journals.
In the interim, I suggest that everyone start making an email list of all their favorite journalists as a means of contacting them when a new site for J-Land can be found. It seems to me that if a good blog site is contacted by J-Land representatives (to be determined) with the proposition that a good number of journalists will subscribe, the outcome will be better for all.
I have begun making inquiries today and will do so for the rest of the time available until J-Land shuts down. If anyone has any thoughts or ideas on this subject please contact me.
It's day two of let's find a way to further screw up the economy, headed chiefly by those zany, thieving politicians whose antics keep us on our toes. You have to understand that most politicians are not too bright by definition, for if they were, they'd be the ones escaping on golden parachutes.
Nay, my little buttercups, politicians trek through life unaware of the definition of economics and morality, staying steadfast to their plans to collect as much monies as they can get away with. The few who are already wealthy and/or educated, are only serving in politics to fluff their egos and further their legacies.
You see, smart people don't become politicians. They make as much as 100 times more than politicians and have no time for, or interest in, the politics of America. They do, however, use these little pinheads to further their own interest by contributing directly or indirectly to the politician's pockets. So, be patient, my little gun-toters, their doing the best that they can considering what they have to work with. I'm Jimmy and I approved this statement.
The Pictures: All the cat lovers, who, while enjoying yesterday's dog pictures, asked for equal time. So, today's pic's are from the world of cats. Cat's are a delicate bunch and not big on performing stupid people tricks. Rather, they are aware that cats were worshiped as gods many years age and they have never forgotten that.
It is unwise to meddle with cats, for they are subtle and will piss on your computer. They suffer from many different ailments but I have never met one who suffered from insomnia. They are also much smarter than dogs. If you do not believe this, try to get eight cats to pull a sled through the snow. One of my girlfriends once told me. "It's either me or the cat." I miss her, sometimes.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: Thanks to my pal, Garnett for the following quips.
Two antennas met on a roof, fell in love and got married. The ceremony wasn't much, but the reception was excellent.
A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse. "But why," they asked, as they moved off. "Because", he said, "I can't stand chess-nuts boasting in an open foyer."
Mahatma Gandhi, a famed maker of excellent rice, walked barefoot most of the time. This produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This made him..... A super calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.
That's it for today my little mongeese. More tomorrow.
