From Denny: The world is changing at a dizzying rate the past few weeks with all the political upheaval in the Middle East. This kind of change is good and will end up improving everyone's lives around the world. Thirty years of poor economies and human rights abuses brought it to a head. This change was inevitable. When people feel so desperate they no longer feel they have anything to lose is when people take high risks.

Egypt and Tunisia have been decided and they are in transition to developing new governments. Libya has yet to be decided though defections from the Army and other sectors has Gadhafi increasingly isolated from his former supporters - and enablers.

It's best the West stay out of this turmoil. We don't need to arm the rebels or protect the leader in the process of getting deposed. It is up to the people of Libya to rise up and do the work themselves. If America interferes it takes away their pride of their moment in history. It is not for us to be so paternalistic in attitude toward developing nations. They will learn to grow just as we are also learning to take a hands off approach and trust them to choose well for themselves.

44 Wisconsin Uprising and Federal Budget Fight Cartoons

Rep. John Boehner, Blocking PositionImage by DonkeyHotey via Flickr


From Denny: Everyone is watching their wallet - or the government's wallet, that is. From the Congressional halls to the state legislatures across the nation all eyes are on how our politicians are handling deficits. Their solutions? Most are Republican controlled and so they passed tax cuts for the wealthy, both on state levels like Wisconsin and the federal level like Obama too.

Tax cuts to the wealthy always bring out the same tired song: take money away from teachers, firemen, police and the middle class that built this country, protect it and teach it. The middle class is the economic engine not the wealthiest among us. Yet it is the wealthiest among us that continue as a scourge upon regular working people.

Well, the working people have finally had enough. The working people have finally figured out just how serious these Republican activists truly are about lowering the minimum wage, union-busting and getting rid of health care. And that's just for starters, folks. These guys are a ruthless greedy bunch, led by the billionaire Koch Brothers, the robber barons of this century.  The Koch Brothers want to concentrate wealth into their hands - which is why they have purchased so many federal and state politicians to do their bidding.  Walker is just one of hundreds of their minions.

Check out the political cartoons expressing the cartoonists' opinion on the news, especially the Wisconsin uprising about the Gov. Walker and the legislature taking away collective bargaining rights from teachers.  Oh, and in case, you didn't catch a previous post, get a laugh at this tidbit.  Gov. Walker sent out a pink slip to the teacher wife of his own GOP Speaker of the House.  Smart move, don't you think?  Bet that guy's wife wants to take a baseball bat to Walker now - you know, that same baseball bat Walker said he reserved for Democratic lawmakers who refuse to bow to this autocratic will.

Today over 70,000 protesters marched in Wisconsin. MoveOn.org organized marches all across America this weekend in support of the workers in Wisconsin. Looks like the Second American Revolution has begun.

As it stands now, Walker still plans to fire at least 6,000 teachers. You think that's bad.  What about Texas?  They plan to cut as many as upwards to 100,000 teachers.  I wonder how many teachers - who vote Republican - will be asking themselves why they believe "in small government" when they are the government.
If not for various services like education and security there would not be much societal advancement and we would be reduced to a lack of law and order.  The kind of "small government" the GOP advocates means no one to enforce minimum wages, all laws in the courts and on the streets, no food safety, no public heath safety, no interstate highways and bridges maintenance.

Everything you take for granted as part of your daily comfortable life would be done away with if the Republicans had their way.  They would turn America into a police state, concentrating the taxpayer monies on military build-up.  Seems like the last country to do that was Russia, formerly the USSR, and all those satellite countries ended up breaking their economy.  As it is, with Iraq and Afghanistan and Pakistan, it is America that now has too many satellite countries bleeding dry the national treasury.

So, now we hear today that Obama and Hillary want to start sending weapons to the rebels in Libya?  Are they crazy?  That's how the Taliban and Bin Laden got their start when we supplied them during the Reagan years against the Russians in Afghanistan.  Don't these politicians ever read our own recent American history?  Do we really need yet another American satellite country to burden the middle class?

17 American Uprising Cartoons: Wisconsin


From Denny:  Have you heard the latest humor twist on this jerk of a governor in Wisconsin? Turns out the fool sent out a pink slip to the teacher wife of his own GOP Speaker of the House in Wisconsin. Yeah, now when it happens to Republicans suddenly it isn't so funny any more. I bet that Speaker's wife now wants to take a baseball bat to the governor.

The Republican governors in Louisiana (my state), Indiana and Ohio are all backing down from their high horse attitudes of firing every one and taking away their rights. Talk about public outrage and backlash this past week.

I'm sure the GOP strategists are telling them to back off to put this issue to bed quickly before no Republican can get elected. Sure hope they stay stubborn and keep pushing the issue. :) At least now, a lot of people who were never quite sure this union-busting was true are sure of it now. The public is also now aware of just how much our wages are in peril in every industry because of corrupt politicians.

And the Second American Revolution begins in  The Heartland of America: Wisconsin

Funny News: Fake David Koch Punked Idiot GOP Wisconsin Gov. Walker



From Denny:  Talk about hilarious. A liberal blogger, Ian Murphy of Buffalo.Beast.com, decided to place a call to Gov. Walker, claiming to be billionaire businessman, David Koch, left in the above photo, of the famous Koch Brothers. The governor bought it hook, line and sinker. The Koch brothers are these guys who are bankrupting America and whittling away at basic rights, employee rights, affordable health care and much more. These guys are really nothing but anarchists trying to overthrow an elected government by ruining the economy and national wages in order to concentrate the country's wealth into fewer and fewer hands: theirs. These billionaires are so damned greedy that they crave more billions and not enough politicians seem to have the will to stop them.

The Koch brothers are also the same guys who sponsor all these crazy political think tanks that, on the surface, sound like good American values - until you dig deeper. There are literally hundreds of these so-called think tanks on the internet.  Many people claim they get no pay for working for them which is more lying.  There are other ways to get compensated than directly.  Yet we all know they are nothing but fact-twisting propaganda sites that churn out the manufactured lies on a regular basis.

Well, turn about was fair play in this Wisconsin uprising. For some time smart media has maintained that Gov. Walker's position never was about the budget. Rather it was always about a GOP agenda - a Koch brothers agenda - to break the unions. The unions are the last thing left to help a portion of the middle class hold on to what wealth they still own. Too bad most of the white collar workers in America never unionized like they should have decades ago. We all would have had the power to own our government - not the lobbyists.

Gov. Walker completely bought it as if this prank call was for real.  He believed he was actually talking to his supporter David Koch. Walker talked about taking baseball bats to beat up the Democrats, laughing  like it was deliriously funny.  What a jerk.

What this phone call, in Gov. Walker's own voice, shows is the strategy of the GOP to destroy American workers and their livelihoods. And for what? Money. Money in the pockets of all these GOP corrupt politicians like Gov. Walker.  Why are the Wisconsin voters not recalling this corrupt governor?

From Denny: Billionaire Berlusconi may finally be on the road of The Long Goodbye much like Egypt's Mubarak. Tens of thousands of women, with husbands and boyfriends, have been protesting Bersculoni and his latest sex scandal for two weeks now. There is only so much embarrassment a country can take and Italy is fed up with Bersculoni, his arrogance and his cavalier depravity. The status quo is about to change.

Egypt Revolution: Late Night Jokes Roundup

SHARM EL SHEIKH/EGYPT, 18MAY08 - Muhammad Hosn...Egypt's now former dictator Hosni Mubarak Image via Wikipedia


From Denny: Guess who's literally no longer in the picture in Egypt these days? Take a look to the right for that's a ghost you are viewing. The late night comics were not at a shortage of words - or opinions - about the unfolding news coverage streaming in live all day and night long in America for 18 days. We all watched with fascination the witnessing of a new nation being birthed. Egypt is thousands of years old, had monarchies and dictators yet never before a chance at democracy until now.

It will be interesting to watch the struggles ahead as various factions wrestle for power. The same thing happened after our own American Revolution. Americans seem to think it was so easy when it was not. Most of our founding fathers were hounded so much for years that they ended up penniless after the British crown was done with them for daring to rise against it.

What's more weird is that even George Washington and Benjamin Franklin were off to Europe, hoping to enlist an heirless aristocrat of the Stewart (or is it Stuart?) family line to be America's King. Yeah, scary, isn't it? Fortunately, said possible king had the good sense to turn down their offer. He thought they should press ahead and forge a new way of government that was truly of the people - including their new leader. Even the Founding Fathers really didn't know how to break their mindset and conditioning to the monarchy and install a President. Egypt may wrestle with the same issues our ancestors did. We are still wrestling. Democracy is messy but worth the fight.

42 Obama 2011 Budget Cuts and Economy Cartoons

President George W. Bush and President-elect B...President Bush and President Obama Image via Wikipedia


From Denny: Well, it's unanimous - most of America hates these budget cuts. We have all figured out we are getting screwed by our corporate politicians. If we get sick, grow old, desire higher education or want any kind of stable financial future then we are just "shit outta luck" with this President and this Congress. They appear to be beyond shame and keep feeding their Greed Monster: Big Business.

To the rescue? Looks like Lady Karma will be dealing some harsh hands to the same hard hearts slapping at - and dismissing with a cavalier wave of the hand - all the vulnerable in our society. The way Big Business is going just about everyone will end up in the Vulnerable category, from what's left of the middle class down to the poor.

At some point Americans will have to riot and take to the streets to reestablish real values in this country. I wonder how long it will take before Americans understand how over the past 30 years the Republicans and Big Business have whittled away at the middle class wealth to drive us into perpetual economic slavery?

The Obama Budget and American Economy Cartoons

Unofficial seal of the United States CongressImage via Wikipedia



From Denny: A politically divided Congress and President Obama tackle the nation's budget. The Republicans want to kill off all old people who are not rich so employers don't have to pay into Social Security. Did I mention they want yet more tax cuts for the rich? And the quickly evaporating middle class and the poor are supposed to have their taxes jump by high increases. Talk about insulting. And we elected any of these people? "Throw them from the train!" may become the new national chant.

The current budget proposal from Obama is $3.73 trillion, trimming $1.1 trillion a year for the next 10 years. Supposedly, this budget claims it will "help boost the U.S. economy and make it more competitive." How cutting college loans will accomplish that is beyond common sense. There are 200 federal programs getting the axe or severely slashed, many related to education. How does shutting out millions of American school children from a better educated future help develop those smart enough to secure America's future? Oh, that's right, we will bring in foreign visa workers to fill the gap. When are we going to invest in American education from top to bottom and stick with it over the long term?

The Obama version of the budget calls for a five-year freeze on our domestic spending and a couple of tax hikes on oil companies and large institutions. There is an eleven percent increase for funding to education while it cuts college loans. That sure leaves a lot of us scratching our heads as to which end is up.  We are going to increase taxes to the oil companies at the same time while we continue awarding them insanely huge subsidies. This budget has us all wondering if this is really a satire spoof from Saturday Nite Live.

Want to read The Obama Budget in all its glory word for word? Check out this link for your very own pdf file. One thing is for sure, Obama gets high marks for a readable proposal - OK, it's actually a speech attached to a budget proposal - instead of the usual academic government gobble gook verbiage.  But at least it made for more of a yawn-free read.


Bill Day


If Congress and the President really wanted to balance the budget quickly and efficiently they would stop the Afghan and Iraq War messes and strike down that $900 billion tax cut to the wealthy they passed in December.  That would get America the true deficit reduction we all want and in short order - not by cutting energy bill assistance in the dead of winter to old people and young widows with children.

What ever happened to a nation - and leaders - of compassion?  In the end, our legacy as a nation will be judged by how well we responded to those in need.  Right now, the Baby Boomer generation will not go down well in the history books if this lobbyist purchased Congress and corrupt Supreme Court are any indication.

Posts Roundup at Dennys Blogs - 13 Feb 2011



From Denny: What an exciting week it has been with the 18 Day Egypt Revolution, following the twists and turns of real life drama. I'm proud to say I wrote many posts to cover it. The most time consuming was to wade through various English written Egyptian blogs to find out what was going on, what they thought was happening in their own country.

Remember the state controlled the news. You think it's bad in America, try living under martial rule with news black-outs and propaganda. OK, the Republicans do so love to spread their political gospel but at least most Americans know it's all lies. Comics make jest of what the GOP churns out of their "war rooms."

I've started yet another silly blog for interesting people, whatever I find as I find it: Dennys People Watching. Originally, I thought it might be interesting to cover world leaders but then Lady Gaga just had to get some face time. She is my most favorite outrageous person. If she's this cheeky at age 24, can you imagine her at age 50? Sure hope she doesn't burn herself out and become a conservative in her old age.

I also waded through a tremendous number of political cartoons about the Egypt Revolution which, naturally, have proven to be a big hit with the Middle Eastern countries.  I even started posting the Egypt news on The Social Poets rather than Dennys Global Politics because I was concerned anyone from the Middle East or Egypt might be in danger for visiting what the state might perceive as a  mainstream American media site  After all, who would think a poetess would be a political subversive? OK, bring on the political clowns... :)

During this fast-paced Egypt news we had the Chinese New Year and the Super Bowl.  I managed to get up some great recipes so take a look at the four food blogs.

Another blog I just birthed too, still in development stage, is Dennys Guest Bloggers. I thought it might be fun to invite other bloggers to answer interview questions for their readers to better get to know them.  It's also an interesting way to help market your blog, your art work or whatever.  I'm always up for figuring out ways to get out information - of which I am The Ultimate Information Junkie - and experiment with how to reach maximum awareness on the web.

If you are interested and want to post there - which would get linked on my many other blogs and linked in search engines and social sites - leave a comment on the blog or email here: warriorspearl@gmail.com.  It might be a good idea to catch my eye with the subject heading: Dennys Guest Bloggers.

Over the past several months artists and other bloggers have written for guest blogging but some of them were not a fit for my blogs or I couldn't get to them at the time.  So, I've been wracking my brain to figure out how to create a fit for just about any blogger - and in a timely manner. So this crazy blog idea was born.

Take a look around. Put up your feet; take a load off and enjoy yourself as you trip through what I found to post!  Sometimes, I feel like a writing monkey as depicted in that silly photo...

Gabrielle Giffords, Democratic nominee and gen...Image via Wikipedia


From Denny: It's only been one month since Gabrielle Giffords was so seriously injured, shot at her political meet and greet. She has astounded doctors with her strong will to recover. She has met with shouts of joy when she first understood commands, moved her legs, and now has uttered her first words. Just this week, Monday morning, Gabby requested the one word, "toast" with her breakfast. I guess she was tired of yogurt and oatmeal, wanting something that tasted different.

Currently, Gabby is doing speech therapy every day, several hours a day she is so motivated to get back to her life as she knew it. When she was shot, the bullet went through the left side of her brain, the side that controls speech. Doctors were not sure she would speak again.

It's good to know Gabby is able to eat three meals a day, a good indicator her appetite is back and her body healing well. The doctors say "she is recovering at lightning speed but that this is a marathon process." Hopefully, if all goes well, Gabby will be able to attend her husband's space shuttle launch for the Endeavor.

American Political Cartoons - 12 Feb 2011

President George W. Bush and President-elect B...Outgoing Prez Bush with Incoming Prez Obama Image via Wikipedia


From Denny:  What a whirlwind week with the peaceful people's Egypt Revolution finally winning and ousting Mubarak! America was on the periphery. President Obama was clueless as to what to do, constantly changing his position from day to day. Republican think tanks were apoplectic, frothing at the mouth trying to force Obama to their strong man line of leadership, how he was supposed to be in control of Egypt and Mubarak.  Israel, Jordan and other Middle Eastern countries were frantically calling Obama to come out and declare this or that, in other words, lead the situation.

This Egypt Revolution was of the people and no one else for a pleasant change. This was one time my father's precious damned CIA, the Pentagon and the White House were not working feverishly in sync to destabilize and topple a foreign government just to place their favorite puppet in power. When American politicians, military and intelligence finally get their egos out of The Big Picture this world will be a better place. Why does it always have to be about what's good for America? Don't they understand that what is good for that particular country ends up being good for everyone in the end?

Man up, world governments, and learn to respond and adapt to what evolves in any situation. Quite trying to control it and then cover up your mistakes when things go awry. The weak indecision of President Obama actually played in his favor in the Egypt situation. As usual, Obama is late to the party. He isn't a joiner. He isn't a people person. He isn't a leader. He's a professor who should have stayed in the classroom that he could control. Real leadership is messy because life is messy. America is a democracy, not an autocracy, contrary to what the Republicans and this White House want to create for their convenience and ease of operation.

By doing nothing Obama looked like he was not interfering in Egypt, therefore not creating a backlash onto America as the Republicans would have slammed our way.  It could have escalated into a bigger mess with Middle East anger directed at America for all the past mistakes of previous presidencies. Obama gets a gold star in my book any way.  Sometimes, it is better to stay out of the game.

The Social Poets: Breaking News: Egypt Jubilant, This Blogger Called It Right: Mubarak Leaves

The Social Poets: Breaking News: Egypt Jubilant, This Blogger Called It Right: Mubarak Leaves - been writing these Egypt news posts on The Social Poets in case Egyptians were barred from obvious news and political sites. Who would think a poetess would be a subversive? :)

Breaking News: Egypt Jubilant, This Blogger Called It Right: Mubarak Leaves

Hosni MubarakImage by robertxcadena via Flickr


From Denny:  This blogger gets to tell the mainstream media, "You were wrong!" They were claiming Mubarak would not leave. This blogger told them Mubarak was just doing his military leader version of The Long Goodbye. "I told you so!" never felt so good because now the Egyptian people have a real chance at democracy and truly free and fair elections of their own choosing.

It will be exciting to watch it unfold over the months ahead.  Do not underestimate the Egyptian people.  They will not allow a fundamentalist Islamic regime to grab power.  They are fed up with being held down, oppressed, and treated like starving dogs.

Right now the status is that Mubarak left Cairo last night after giving his unwelcome speech as the crowds swelled to millions in the Tahrir Square. The mainstream media were churning out stories of how Mubarak was still in power but with much less power since he transferred much of it to the new Vice President Omar Suleiman .

Right now the Army is taking over the transition to new government, aiding the Vice President who is basically the new President until someone can be elected.  The Army came down on the side of the protesters, giving Mubarak a safe exit.  Today many of the military are out in the Tahrir Square celebrating with the protesters.  After all, how can Mubarak ask the military to fire upon their own relatives and friends?  It was never going to succeed for Mubarak to hold onto power.

Another interesting development is the protesters are demanding to know, "Mubarak, where is all the money?" You guessed it. Follow the money. Turns out today the Swiss banks froze Mubarak's assets until this all shakes out. I guess the next question is, "But did Mubarak move money to Saudi Banks?"  They do own controlling interests in several American banks.  Are they hiding any of Mubarak's money in America? As you recall, the Saudi monarchy wanted to prop up Mubarak because they fear their own people will riot and depose their regime.

Egypt has a lot of well-wishers in the Arab world besides in the West. Palestinians in the Gaza and the Tunisians all took to the streets, horns blaring, celebrating with jubilation.

From Egyptian anchor Amr Nassef, who was once imprisoned in Egypt for alleged ties to Islamists, cried emotionally on the air and said: "Allahu Akbar (God is great), the Pharaoh is dead. Am I dreaming? I'm afraid to be dreaming."

It's a good day in Egypt!  We wish them well.

Watch the video of the celebration as Richard Engel reports:

Breaking News: Mubarak Angers Protesters As Saves Face, Justifies Rule, Long Goodbye

Hosni MubarakImage by robertxcadena via Flickr


From Denny: Mubarak seriously ticked off the thousands of protesters in Tahrir Square in Cairo as they just heard him speak to the nation. He did not quickly capitulate to their demands to leave immediately.

Mubarak tried the argument of how the economy and "the little people" will suffer if they don't quit with the protests and come back to his style of law and order.  He attempted to sway any Egyptians sitting on the fence who have yet to side with the protesters.

Mubarak pointedly told "outside powers" that he will not give in to their demands. There must be more foreign countries calling than we know, pressuring him to leave. Interesting. Saudi Arabia is just as obnoxious. They threatened President Obama they will prop up Mubarak if Obama comes out in favor of the protesters. Like that would work at this juncture.

Mubarak is known for being a very stubborn man and so I certainly did not expect a former general to state precisely he would give in to them and leave now. What I did expect is exactly what he did. He did the usual military leader dance, detailing how he has been a true patriot for decades, how he loves his country, how he paternalistically always had their best interests at heart even if they are too stupid to understand. His one mild concession was to tell the protesters they had "legitimate demands and they were just."

Mubarak went on to try and sell "free and fair elections in September" and that's when he will make his graceful exit. Like most military leaders, Mubarak is tone deaf to his people. He repeatedly spoke about his grand vision for Egypt. Clearly, no one else shares his vision among his countrymen.

Mubarak claims he will give - let's see, maybe "share" is a better word - some of his presidential powers to  the newly created Vice President position. No one believes that either. Unanimously, the protesters rejected his speech and his vision.

What is clear is that Mubarak will leave, what he thinks is his own timing: September. The protesters do not trust him to keep his word for free and fair elections. Nor do they trust him to properly investigate and punish those security forces who killed hundreds of protesters.

What Mubarak has accomplished is to strongly unify the protesters and increase their numbers by the hour.  Government workers have thrown in with them, especially those on the almighty money maker, the Suez Canal.  Mubarak is worried about his economy now?  After that disastrous speech, the whole country will now refuse to come to work tomorrow.  He can't last until September.

Western journalists keep pounding the message that Mubarak is not stepping down. Yes, he is. He is doing it with his own version of the truth and trying to save his dignity. This is what every former general does and how he does it. Write it on a rock and take it to the bank. Stubborn or not, proud or not, resistant or not, Mubarak is out.


Egypt: Tahrir Square Excitement Builds, Protesters Await Confirmation Mubarak Leaving


From Denny: Just two hours ago we received word here in America that Mubarak is truly stepping down, yielding power to his newly created Vice President. The Army is expected to assist in the transition to a new civilian government. The protesters are gathered by the thousands in Tahrir Square in Cairo to await Mubarak's "See ya!" speech.

This Mubarek departure has been confirmed by CIA Director Leon Panetta. President Obama spoke about an hour ago in Michigan, declaring America will assist the peaceful transition to a new democracy for Egypt in any way it is asked.


Breaking News: Egypt Protesters Win, Mubarak Stepping Down!


From Denny:  The crowds in Tahrir Square are electrified. Mubarak is about to speak to the crowd. It is expected he is to announce he will step down immediately, yielding power to his newly created Vice President, that according to CIA Director Leon Panetta too.

Arrangements have been made with the Egyptian Army to temporarily take over to oversee the transition to a newly elected democratic government. Most expect this to be a peaceful transition. This is not a military coup but rather an agreement between the Army and Mubarak. There are others in the West that dread the Muslim Brotherhood and wonder if that organization will try to take control in the euphoria of the moment among the protesters.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia is threatening President Obama. Basically, they are taking America hostage economically by doing so. Saudi Arabia says they will prop up Mubarak if Obama demands Mubarak to go in a public way, humiliating him. And these dictatorship style governments in the Middle East wonder why their peoples want to get rid of them? It's all about their egos and "saving face" instead of what is good for the whole country and the benefit of the people.

Congratulations go to the Egyptian protesters who have risked their lives and their freedom to create their democracy.

Poll: Obama Will Not Win 2012 Reelection

The mood of the American people does not bode well for President Obama if he wants to seek a second term.



From Denny: Less than 46 percent of Americans expect President Obama to make it into a second term. About 51 percent of Americans believe President Obama will lose in his 2012 re-election bid. The new poll from CNN Opinion Research Corporation does not bode well for the president. He must change course now so he can prove his deeds match his soaring rhetoric.

At this point only 26 percent of registered voters plan to vote for him. There are another 23 percent who say they may vote for him in 2012. Another 35 percent refuse to vote for him while another 16 percent say they probably will not vote for him.

Those are some shaky numbers at best. Of course, the strategists keep trying to spin the numbers, giving supposedly historical context. Yeah? Well, America is in an economic Depression with unemployment rates far higher than the massaged numbers reflect or politicians care to admit.

Strategists try to claim that Bill Clinton won his second term back in 1995 when 65 percent of Americans expected him to lose his re-election bid and only 24 percent thought he would win. Well, I was one of those 24 percent. Bill Clinton had a far more healthy economy and a lot less unemployment issues than this president.

The real history is people get fed up with government when they truly need it and it does not deliver as this White House has not - especially to the Gulf Coast region. Obama still has not fixed the BP Claims Fund for those devastated by the BP Oil Spill Disaster.

Currently, the Louisiana governor is asking a federal judge to take over the BP Claims Fund because Feinberg is screwing over every person in need. Feinberg and BP have also demanded that those who accept paltry payments sign away their legal rights and the right to sue BP. How shameful is that? How shameful is it when Obama rubber stamps this bad attitude just to get re-election funds from Big Oil? Do Obama and his team really believe they will be able to do good in the second term when they won't need campaign funds any more? If that is what they think - they are sorely mistaken - because they will be too late for the people in need for years.

Obama's possible Republican competition in 2012:

former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, at 21 percent
former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, 19 percent
former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, 18 percent
former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, 10 percent

Among Republicans they believe that Huckabee only has a 13 percent chance of winning the GOP nomination. They think that Romney has a 25 percent chance of winning with Palin following on his heels at 24 percent chance of winning.

Obama - and especially his political team - had better get a move on and start taking care of his base if he wants anyone to show up at the polls in 2012. Two years is very little time to make a bold difference enough to capture the attention of the demoralized public. And this is why you don't sell your soul to become a corporate politician - when you were voted in as - and claimed to be a populist. Time for some serious soul-searching in this White House.

Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Mardi Gras Quotes, Who Dat Rocking Saints Songs

Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Mardi Gras Quotes, Who Dat Rocking Saints Songs - Congrats go to the Packers who won this year's Super Bowl! Let the partying begin!

Here is last year's winner, the New Orleans Saints. What a huge surprise it was to win the Super Bowl, the first for this beaten down team. Get a grin at the partying in the French Quarter and the different rock songs for the team.

The Packers have their Cheesehead song and the Saints have their Who Dat?! song. For my second language friends: Who Dat = Who is that?

Right after Hurricane Katrina, all in a half a million strong flurry, half of New Orleans moved to my town of Baton Rouge, the state's capital, overwhelming us and our resources. We soon adjusted after a few months and assimilated everyone. They still can't drive. :)

All we heard in the grocery stores and the shopping malls was the "Who dat?" phrase. We soon started calling New Orleans people The Who Dats and the name stuck with New Orleans wearing it like a badge of pride. :) Winning the Super Bowl was just what New Orleans needed to make them feel really good. There is still a lot of celebrating going on - but then that's the New Orleans Who Dat Nation!

Cartoons: My Demo-Yard-Cats and GOP Temper Tantrums

Official presidential portrait of Barack Obama...Image via Wikipedia
From Denny:  What is it about my Democrats?  Like the typical yard cat they don't seem to know their name or come when they are called - like when their base voters are screaming at them to the contrary of what they are currently doing.  OK, my cats come when they are called but they were trained like dogs.  Don't come when you are called, you don't get any food.  Comprende?  It's the Head Cat Get Tough Policy at our house. Maybe the rank and file Democrats should take the same approach and quit giving our politicians our votes until they start doing all that we have asked them to do - not what the lobbyists have asked them to do.

Cartoons: Some Hummers to Scratch Your Head Why



From Denny:  OK, these are those wonderfully obscure type of cartoons that some people don't always "get" as to why they are funny but they sure made me grin. Yes, back in the ol' school days, I used to be the toast of the English teachers because I remembered all the obscure peanut gallery comments from those no-name characters in Shakespeare's plays. Never mind, I could care less about the main event but fortunately they rarely queried me on that account. Read that as they believed me to be brilliant, when clearly said probable brilliance was often misplaced - or happily redirected - to more interesting venues.

Yes, my poor teachers often wanted to pull their hair out and sell it to me for a Christmas gift. But, they always said they placed my essays or term papers at the top of the pile to read since I proved to be the most entertaining. Of course, they went about red-lining the hell out of said "works of art" when I refused to follow proper, OK, dull, form. Never mind it was a teaching moment for us both, right? :) Which is probably why I so appreciate the cracked minds of these cartoonists...


Hmmmm....

Cartoons: Just Good Old-Fashioned Political Comedy

Official Portrait of President Ronald ReaganImage via Wikipedia

From Denny: Sometimes, Life is just too amusing and these cartoonists certainly have capitalized on the opportunists capitalizing on us. Lots of funnies about President Obama's SOTU address, "addressing" the silly school child culture that surrounded the days before the speech. You know, just who asked "you have got to be kidding me!" to sit with them instead of in the usual stiff-necked partisan division. It was all about the political marketing of trying to convince America how Congress and the President are so serious about working together for our common good. Yeah, sure left me speechless too. :)

Then this week was the 100th birthday of deceased former President Reagan. Everyone tries to capitalize upon his charisma too. While I did not agree with his conservative agenda and was not ttoo thrilled about how he was the first president to run up a $1 trillion debt, the guy was a sweetie personality-wise. In fact, he was originally a Democrat until he married money and his father-in-law convinced him to come over to The Dark Side - Republicanism. What that father-in-law saw was what the Republican Party sorely lacked - and still does - anyone with a heart.

GOP 2012 presidential wannabe contenders like Newt Gingrich, Michelle Bachman and Sarah Palin have been invoking Reagan's memory and comparing themselves to him. Reagan was an original, folks. Ain't no one like him in the political sphere today. Not even Obama can - or should - compare himself to Reagan.

It is rather creepy how the GOP has been promoting Reagan to God status just like they did the Constitution. Enough already and the cartoonists agree! :)


Just plain good old-fashioned political comedy:

31 More Egypt Revolution Cartoons

Cartoonists churn out new opinions at as fast a rate as the situation changes in Egypt during the protests.




From Denny: The fast pace of revolution is, well, why they call it a "revolution"! Events unfolding in Egypt are astounding to witness. The first few days of the week the protests were primarily peaceful with the exception of a few idiot looters.

In the early days the protesters called for Mubarek to step down immediately. Mubarek said "No!" but did dissolve his cabinet and created the first Vice President, a man of his own choosing, of course. The protesters were not well impressed and demanded Mubarek and his whole government leave. Mubarek was tired of his idea of concessions to the voice of his people.

Mubarek drew back the hated corrupt police force as a way to teach the people how much they needed him. That backfired. That act of depraved indifference for his people did not deter the protesters. Instead, they organized themselves in every neighborhood and created their own security task forces to guard themselves and their property.

Did I mention Mubarek also let loose thousands of violent prisoners, emptying them into the streets to terrorize the populace into submission? Then Mubarek closed down the internet and cell phone service which he later restored in a couple of days. He probably found out he couldn't run his own affairs without it.

Yesterday the protests turned violent with the odd addition of thugs on horses and camels riding into the protesters, swinging clubs and battering anyone they could. They especially went after foreign news crews with cameras to prevent the news from getting out of the country.

Clearly, Mubarek sent in those thugs in place of official police or the military. Who knows? Maybe those thugs are really plains clothes police who are afraid of what will happen to them if Mubarek does leave the country, abandoning them. That might explain the passion and the furor of which they fight because they may feel they are fighting for their own survival.

The Army refuses to fire upon the protesters, often joining in photo-ops and chants with them. Both the protesters and Mubarek have been competing for the loyalty of the Army. What's a ruthless dictator to do? Well, unleash every psychopath he can lay his hands on so he is not forced to let loose his 30 year grip on power.

If the protesters stand strong and fight back they will eventually win the day. A million protesters against a few hundred thugs will win in the end.

President Obama's response seems to be shifting and changing along with the situation. If Mubarek wants to live through this someone with a stronger will than Obama needs to convince this guy it's past due time to leave. Why not send a military man to talk to a military man?

And another question: Has Obama stopped the flow of foreign aid funds to Egypt yet? That's a reputed $1.3 BILLION  I would hope so until we know who will be in office running the country. Otherwise, our hard-earned taxpayers funds may end up in some Swiss bank account with a Mubarek (secretly) named owner. I guess we don't have to worry about hunting it down. Surely, WikiLeaks will blast those secret accounts all over the internet. It's enough to make you want to hide your cashed paycheck under the mattress. :)

Groundhog Punxsutawney Phil Predicts Early Spring for 2011

Check out this year's funny prediction from the famous American groundhog and plenty of groundhog day trivia and more.

LIFE-US-GROUNDHOGImage by Brendan Loy via Flickr


From Denny: This little pampered groundhog is a cute little guy. Every year he gets trotted out for a brief celebrity appearance to make his prediction about whether we will have another six weeks of winter or enjoy an early Spring. Last year Phil accurately predicted a longer winter. This year the little cutie is predicting an early Spring.

Be sure to check out the funny link at the end of this post for last year's post about Phil. There is a recipe for Groundhog Cookies and plenty of Groundhog Phil Trivia to enjoy too!  Phil's official site is overwhelmed this year.

How convenient I already posted his information last year.  Maybe some of Phil's psychic ability rubbed off on me?  After all, obviously I "knew" last year to put up Phil's important information.  You see,  I "knew" a whole year ahead of time that the winter snow storms would be bad, everyone would be online at the same time, and that Phil's site would be overwhelmed.  As a loyal fan of Phil's I "knew" it was my duty to promote his wonderful cheeky self to the world.  Knock yourselves out and enjoy the Groundhog Phil trivia! :)

From Phil's Royal Court who make a big deal out of the occasion:

Groundhog Day 2005 in Punxsutawney, PennsylvaniaImage via Wikipedia


From the Punxsutawney Phil website that is so overwhelmed they had just the briefest message today:

Phil Says Expect an Early Spring!

Phil's official forecast as read February 2nd, 2011, at sunrise at Gobbler's Knob in Punxsutawney, PA:


Happy Groundhog Day from Punxsutawney Phil!

Here Ye, Hear Ye, Hear Ye

Groundhog Day, February 2, 2011
Punxsutawney Phil was raised from his burrow
By the call of President Bill Deeley.
He greeted his handlers, Ben Hughes and John Griffiths.

After casting an inquisitive eye towards thousands of his faithful followers,
He proclaimed that the Steelers are going to the Super Bowl!

Back to the business at hand...
He surveyed his surroundings carefully and found that there was no shadow around,
So, an early spring it will be."


Here's the link with all the funny Phil trivia, history, groundhog society, funny photos and a cookie recipe:
