American Midterms and World Politics Cartoons - 30 Oct 2010

Negative campaign ads were never so much fun to lampoon as cartoonists are enjoying this political season.




From Denny: The midterm election season as been as bizarre - and as entertaining at times - as Halloween! The worst and the nastiest negative campaign ads come from the Republican side of the aisle. The Democrats have dished out some of the negative spice of their own as well.

Jon Stewart Interviews Obama Economic Advisor

Check out the latest from the Obama economic advisor about the state of the American economy.






From Denny: One of the Obama economic advisors is Austan Goolsbee. Jon Stewart interviewed him recently about what exactly is going on in the economy and how The Obama Economic Team is grappling to get its hands on this runaway monster. They recognize the difficulties in getting down the unemployment rate. One of the ways in which they are taking measures to do so is by funneling credit to small businesses so they can hire. After all, it's the small businesses who are the heroes of the economy. Small businesses hire 80 percent of the workers in America.

Americans Lose Jobs Twice As Fast As Immigrants Gain Jobs

In the  2009 jobs report, immigrants gained 656,000 jobs while native-born Americans lost 1.2 million.





From Denny:  A new disturbing report about jobs gained among immigrants (legal and illegal) vs. severely lost among native-born Americans is about to be released from the U.S. Census Bureau and Department of Labor data by the Pew Hispanic Center. What it proves is that immigrants are gaining jobs twice as fast as native-born are losing them.

Prez Obama Interviews At The Daily Show With Jon Stewart

Check out the class act of the President talking with Jon Stewart.



From Denny: Prez Obama did a great job pressing his case for why to vote for him and the Democrats come November 2nd. This was one of those better interviews where the President actually gets to talk in sentences longer than idiot sound bites and the interviewer is not playing the stupid game of "gotcha journalism." Oh, that our politicians would talk like this in public with one another like in this give-and-take interview, disagreeing without launching into the character assassination wars.

Why Women Are Not Inspired to Vote Right Now

Find out what is bothering women voters about this midterm election season.



From Denny: Why is it in poll after poll do the pollsters find themselves puzzled as to why women are just not enthusiastic this year for the midterm voting - especially Democrats and Independents?

Like any situation there are varied reasons for the female voting malaise:

* Women view political race after political race still offering no practical solutions for the issues of the country.

* Women struggle working more hours in a down economy, hoping to afford rising health care, raising families, and are caretakers of aging parents.

24 October 2010

American and World Economy Cartoons - 24 Oct 2010

Check out the national mind and opinions of our economy through the eyes of cartoonists.






From Denny: Our politicians continue to campaign for their jobs while they refuse to guard ours going out of the country still at a rapid rate. This month GM announced they were hiring an additional 5,000 new workers. Yeah? Not in America. And we taxpayers still own controlling interest in this annoying car manufacturer. They have the nerve to stiff the American worker with the bill and no job to help pay for it.

American Political Season - 23 Oct 2010

This sure is a mean - and more competitive than usual - political season.



From Denny: This is a midterm election season and it is in full swing like a Presidential election. This year is when the controlling political party gets to redistrict the nation to give one party or another more seats and deprive their competition of enough to drive them into minority status. Meanwhile, it's the voters who suffer from these greedy selfish practices. The Republicans are the most notorious in breaking up Democratic strongholds they could never gain control of to get a seat in the House or the Senate unless they did gerrymander the voting district.

This year, because of the Supreme Court ruling, there are now anonymous donors throwing $20 million checks at the Republicans - and some Democrats - to buy back Congress. It's shameful how the Republicans have sold out this county. No other country in the world allows foreign companies or countries to lobby their political members - let allow buy them for hire.

Friday Lite: Funny Elvira Spoofs I Am Not A Witch Ad

Where Halloween humor meets political humor in America.



From Denny:  Just in time for the funny Halloween season! We have a maybe former or maybe now witch running for the Vice President's former Senate seat in Delaware. Can American politics get any stranger? Christine O'Donnell is the current darling of the boistrous Tea Party.


20 October 2010

CNN Interviews Outted American Spy Valerie Plame About Traitors

Check out this explosive interview about the truth of the outting of one of Americas successful spies tracking down rogue nukes in the world.


From Denny: The movie about this odious incident is coming out now and is well represented as to the truth of what happened. Here Plame and her husband discuss all the garbage that Bush, Cheney and Rove threw at them. Rove was angry that Wilson, a former ambassador, refused to lie for them about nukes in Iraq.

Roundup of Late Nite Jokes and Videos - 18 Oct 2010

Check out this week's late night jokes, latest cartoons, funniest video clips from Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart.



From Denny: Do these guys get any funnier? Well, our politics of late have gone from sad to funny to bizarre to laugh out loud funny - giving the late night comedians plenty of joke material.

Who knew a witch would run for the Senate? Who knew loud hypocritcal Tea Party wingnuts could get any traction with voters? The mainstream political parties of the Republicans and the Democrats had better get off the corporate milk nipples and start taking care of the people. Get down to really governing instead of worrying about staying in office for your own welfare.

American Economy and Crazy World Politics - 16 Oct 2010

To our politicians: the nation's cartoonists are watching you... Check out their latest opinions about the state of the economy, the current election season and world politics




From Denny: Early this morning one of America's TV "Moms" passed away - Barbara Billingsley, from the 50 plus year old show "Leave It To Beaver." That crazy show is apparently still in reruns even though the Baby Boomer generation that grew up on it are all now Gray Hairs (excepting those of us who enjoy cozying up to the hair coloring industry). Barbara was in her nineties and still known for her wicked sense of humor. She was a delightful person on so many levels. There is one cartoon referencing the show in regard to the effect on people's lives from unemployment and the eventual home foreclosures. I doubt the cartoonist knew she was ill when he drew it.

Popular President Clinton On The Economy, Mid-Term Election, Wedding

America's most popular ex-President talks about how to get the economy jumpstarted and the serious erosion of the middle class if the election is turned over to the Republicans.




From Denny:  Former President Bill Clinton keeps rising in popularity as President Obama descends that ladder. America is restless. Since Obama was elected the middle class has grown increasingly disappointed we are left out in the cold - again - by the Democratic Party that used to support the middle class against Big Business eroding our wealth, our stability, our hopes for the future.  The people ARE the economy and when the people have lost confidence the economy slides down into despair.

Chilean Miners Video: All 33 Miners As They Emerged From Mine and More

Listen to rescued miner Mario talk about getting out more Love in the world.



From Denny: Doctors were quite surprised that enduring 10 weeks underground has not taken a physical toll on the 33 Chilean miners. One requires dental surgery, another has high blood pressure and another is diabetic. So far no issues with mental health.

Today, the miners requested books on how to deal with sudden fame. They also called in a lawyer to draw up documents for dealing with future requests for interviews, book and movie deals. In yet another show of unity, the miners have decided that if they are to benefit financially from this ordeal and rescue then they will all share equally.


13 October 2010

1 Billion Worldwide Watch 33 Chilean Miners Rescued From Abyss

Check out the jubilant celebrations as the miners are rescued today.



From Denny:  Talk about an ordeal, a spiritual experience, for the miners, for the millions following and praying about their story. It's been two months since these 33 miners in Chile were found to be alive and Herculean rescue efforts began in earnest.  Since last night and all day today more people have watched the live coverage of this never before attempted rescue from so deep underground in a collapsed mine than any other news story ever.

Everyone is fascinated by these miners, mostly by their incredible - and uncanny - positive attitudes through it all. In the early days the leader of the group was faced with doling out only two days of rations to 33 men - and it had to last 17 days. It was then they got a message up above and the world discovered they still lived.

Monday Lite: Roundup of Late Night Jokes and Videos - 11 Oct 2010

Check out the late night comics and cartoonists as they dissect American culture and politics: ruthlessly.




From Denny: Can the political season get any weirder than this one? It sure fits with the Halloween season. I mean, when have we ever had an actual witch from a bizarrely named political party, the Tea Party, running for the Senate? How low can you go? Well, we already have a troop of liars in Congress pitting themselves against the middle class and working class of this country, sending jobs overseas. That's pretty bad.

American Economy and Crazy Politics - 9 Oct 2010

Check out this week's latest political humor from the nation's cartoonists. The Tea Party wins hands down on the most talked about this election season.



Lady Gaga looking spooky for this election season gala whre we all will gag  if the Republicans get back in control.

From Denny: If the state of the American economy was not so sad these mental Bozos running for office as Tea Party Tea Baggers would be comical. The strange thing is there are actually people willing to vote for them. Which is why there are so many cartoons this week featuring the redneck theme.

I always get a charge out of my relatives in the Northeast who think all rednecks live in the South. Talk about a case of regional bigotry. It's bad enough we have racism and homophobia in this country but now it's long held regional culture bigotry. I've traveled a lot of places and if there is one thing of which I am certain:  Rednecks live everywhere - even overseas.  It isn't just an American phenomenon.

Poem From God - Libations Friday 8 Oct 2010

Even God has a sense of humor about how to handle repeated rejection. Take a look.


Turning Up Roses



Rapping Politically Slamming Poetry Inspired By Rally to Restore American Sanity

The politics of insanity in this election season inspires this poet who is well worth the listen as he reflects the frustration of American voters.





From Denny:  Thanks, Blake, for sending in this video poem from your heart. Your frustration with the spin doctors making American minds sick is a widespread view across the nation. While we are restoring sanity to this country we need to restore common decency for our fellow Americans instead of this idiot mentality of  the "divide and conquer" strategy to get back into political office.

Prez Obama Slaps Down Big Banks For Shady Home Foreclosure Bill

Obama catches last minute sleaze Republicans and Big Banks tacked on into new bill to cheat homeowners of their consumer protection rights while in foreclosure.



From Denny:  Leave it up to the Republicans to sleaze the public and try and slide yet another scumbag piece of legislation past the public and the President.  Fortunately, the White House caught it in time.  As it was, none of the Democrats in the House or the Senate realized they had been sleazed by the Republicans with a last minute tacked amendment they didn't know they were about to vote into law.  They thought the law stood as agreed with no changes yet they got snookered by the Republicans and their handlers yet again.


06 October 2010

Obama Investigates: Big Banks Screw Up Home Foreclosures

Learn how the Big Banks just screwed themselves out of all their profits.



From Denny: Who really feels sorry for the greedy Big Banks who have repeatedly raped the wallets of the American public? Awww, everyone all together now in unison, "Can you hear me now???"

Check out news, political opinion, political humor and funny cartoons, recipes, poetry, funny posts, photography, spiritual thoughts and great quotes.





From Denny: All this weekend - and early this week - I've had the usual case of "Fall Fever." Who really wants to stay inside after a dreadful summer of weirdly high heat and humidity? When Louisiana weather calms down to cooler temperatures at night and low humidity during the day it's, well, irresistible. And the blogging just had to wait this weekend.

American and World Politics Cartoons - 2 Oct 2010

World politics are never a dull moment as we laugh or cry at our nations' antics.




From Denny: With the mid-term election season in full swing here in America the cartoonists are all aglow with their latest opinions of how well or how poorly our politicians are doing their jobs.

Of course, the Republicans were furious that comedian Stephen Colbert appeared in testimony before Congress.

Funny Video: Jon Stewart Announces Restore to Sanity Rally

Sometimes, when you report all the time on how crazy politics can get - like with Fox "News" and Glenn Beck pronouncements - a guy just has to start a "new political movement."


Funny Video: Colbert Announces Keep Fear Alive March

Stephen Colbert goes bouncing off the walls and decides the answer to Glenn Beck's August rally is an appropriate - and sarcastic answer - the "Keep Fear Alive" March during the weird Halloween season. After all, weird is good. Just ask Glenn Beck.

Funny Video: Jon Stwart Lampoons Republican New Pledge As Tired Old Pledge

You heard it here first: The spend-thrift environmnet-trashing Republicans are recycling - finally!


Funny Video: Stewart Questions Character of Congress

Republicans in Congress lack compassion for anyone but Big Money, Big Business, Big Oil and Big Insurance. Then it's all crying and whining about wanting to continue the Bush tax cuts - which, by the way, are 30 percent of our current deficit. Yeah, deficit hawks, you don't ever mention that "factoid" to your Republican and Independent voters, now do you?


Funny Video: Colbert Ponders Tea Party Christines Next Crazy Outburst

Can weird get any more weird? Just in time for Halloween the Tea Party has given us a Satanic witch for a candidate. Voting sure is spiced up this season. Colbert ponders Christine O'Donnel's next weird move and crazy outburst.


Funny Video: Stewart Finds Obama Kryptonite

President Obama held a town hall meeting that centered around the economy and Wall Street. Middle class voters and staunch supporters blasted the President with their frustration of him, his policies, his slow response to the economy and excesses of Wall Street.

One African-American woman, a CFO at a veteran's organization, frankly said, "I'm exhausted of defending you." Talk about zapping the President's strength. She was a veritable "Obama zapping machine." "A black, lady, financial analyst veteran?" Stewart said in disbelief. "We have found Obama's Kryptonite."


Funny Video: Jon Stearrt Discusses Rally to Restore Sanity Advice From Larry Wilmore

Fellow ascerbic comic Larry Wilmore tells Jon to set the bar low - and flood the stage with artificial diversity - if he wants his Rally to Restore Sanity to be successful.


Funny Video: Stewart Says Tea Party Won The Battle For The Soul Of The GOP

Jon Stewart of The Daily Show at Comedy Central wonders about why Karl Rove was not an enthusiastic member of the Tea Party Express for witches, calling O'Donnell "nutty." Yes, there is a battle of the nutjobs in the Republican Party, wrestling for control of America's hearts and minds.
