My furious President

has finally jumped the shark on the issue of gun violence.
Brava Obama. I know he will never revert to being mealy mouthed about it.
He has had it!

May I post a cartoon about food and photography?

Do any of us recognize ourselves in this cartoon? I know I do.

If I ever win a contest again, I may chose as the theme a photo of food that was placed in front of us.
I must admit I have a few in my files.

Portraits of the real Welfare Queens and " Free Stuff " recipients

I wanted to post this in the gun - friendly forum. But I could not find it.

Here is why I so very much wish (and pray) the Pope's visit could be extended

Bill Maher's lineup for tonight: HBO 10 pm and repeat at 11pm

Jane Goodall, Ron Reagan, S.E. Cupp, John Cleese and Spike Feresten

I realize we don't all like Bill Maher these days. I still do very much enjoy his show and the unpredictability of the mixture of host, guests and subjects.

There are two in that lineup I can't wait to see and hear.
You guess which two.

Speaker Boehner to resign from Congress this year. Not a joke

just heard it on CNBC. No link yet.

Wisconsinites Alarmed That Walker Has More Time to Be Governor / Satire by Borowitz

MADISON, WISCONSIN (The Borowitz Report)—In the aftermath of his sudden withdrawal from the Presidential race, on Monday, residents of Wisconsin are alarmed at the prospect of Scott Walker having more time to do his job as governor, Wisconsinites report.

In interviews across the state, Wisconsinites expressed emotions ranging from dread to panic as they grappled with the realization that Walker would soon be back behind his desk performing his duties.

“Earlier this spring, when he was riding high in the polls, a lot of my friends and I were thinking, ‘This is the break we’ve been looking for,’ ” said Carol Foyler of Green Bay. “We definitely had our hopes up.”
Tracy Klugian of Milwaukee agreed. “I don’t know a person in Wisconsin who wasn’t pumped about the idea of Scott Walker going to Washington,” he said. “And then we watched that first debate.” He shuddered at the memory.

In the hours after the governor’s stunning announcement, on Monday, Wisconsinites formed support groups to help each other navigate the reality of Walker turning his full attention to their state.

At a meeting of one of the groups on Tuesday evening, Kenosha resident Harland Dorrinson expressed confidence that his fellow Wisconsinites would be able to contend with their new situation. “People in Wisconsin are stronger than you can imagine,” he said. “We’ve been through blizzards. We’ve been through tornadoes. We’ll get though this somehow.”

“Still, it’s tough,” he said, his voice breaking.


My "reject" for the Sept. contest. But it should not just crack me up - so I share.

Wanna guess where this road side attraction might have been?


Adding this a little later:

I’ve been asked by pm if this is a dead dog or a trained dog.
It is a dog that is trained to make money for his owner and get treats for himself, and since I saw him take position and then get back out I was all clear to me in reality and emotionally that it is not a dead dog.

I was also informed about the death of OhWiseOne’s dog with the wonderfully soulful chastised eyes in the beach photo.
I am sad about that. It’s a terrible pain to lose a pet. They so much love you anyway and never talk back. A huge loss.

So I just have to let this post stand and allow it to rest in peace.
Sorry if I offended or startled anyone.
