    Man… I hope Miss Kitty doesn’t go over to the dark side!

    • martha chandler

      My husband and I love these videos.

      • Sober_Thinking

        I’m on board with them now. 🙂

      • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

        We too!

        ‘The dark side’ is a very apt analogy. It takes a lifetime and at least 3-4 cats even to begin comprehending the powers they are endowed with. Fascinating, mysterious, endearing and very respectable creatures. (Love dogs, too – all animals in fact.)

      Giggle Snort of the evening….

      For his entire working life, a dedicated and hardworking Astrophysicist tried in all earnest to find the existence of other being somewhere in the universe. After 58 years of constant effort, he finally receives a response from a planet 30 billion light years away.

      “What is your planet like?” groaned the extraterrestrial from the other side of the Galaxy.

      “It is 12,756 Kilometers in diameter, is 93,000,000 miles from the nearest star, our sun, has an average temperature of 72 degrees F. We breathe oxygen, live about 75 years, and have both men and women” answered the Physicist.

      “Do the you get along with the women on your planet?” the extraterrestrial asked slowly.

      Puzzled by the question, but not wanting to insult the female Physicists near by, he answered “Why yes. We get along quite well here.”

      The extraterrestrial perked up “Can we send you ours?”

      He heh…


      • crosshr

        BlueG, yeah, I think it’s I’m in trouble now for the rest of the night for giggling at the ….”…Can we send you ours…” my girl sighed as she looked straight at little old me ! heh ! lol

      • Sober_Thinking

        “Take my wife… please.”


  • Orangeone

    • Sober_Thinking

      Kitteh… lol.

      • Orangeone

        I borrowed Scoop’s kitteh reference :):):)

  • aposematic

    A good Article at on Government and Banks.

  • Wait a minute; I’m pretty sure that’s an actor playing a Jedi.

    • I mean, if there really were Jedi kitties, our school security issues would be solved.

      • Orangeone

        Love it!

  • aPLWBinAK

    It’s Andrew Breitbart’s birthday….R.I.P…..

    • sybilll

      Apologize for WHAT?
      Happy Birthday Andrew.

  • celestiallady

    Love it!

  • Landscaper

    O/T My hat is off to the French and Israel for standing up for themselves. One day we will again do the same.

  • Suzyqpie

    Joel Pollak has the power, intellect, and determination to follow Andrew Breitbarts lead. I support Joel Pollak, I promote Joel Pollak. Readers here, please do the same. Joel Pollak is the only Republican who ever received the endorsement of Alan Dershowitz. That highlights the unique nature of Joel Pollak’s perspective.

    • waytngtym

      Not to confuse the issue, but Mr. Dershowitz, whom I just looked up, is going round the bend??

      this from Wikipedia:

      On February 29, 2012, Dershowitz filed an Amicus Brief in support of the People’s Mujahedin of Iran, also known as the MEK, a group designated by the State Department as a foreign terrorist organization.[54][55] The MEK was placed on the list for attacks on U.S. military personal and civilian contractors, and is believed responsible for the deaths of three U.S. Army officers, three U.S. civilian contractors, as well as the wounding of USAF General Harold Price, during an assassination attempt.[56][57]
      The People’s Mujahedin of Iran renounced violence in 2001.[58] However, a 2004 FBI report on the group states that, “MEK is currently actively involved in planning and executing acts of terrorism.”[59][60] Additionally, in 2009, seven people plead guilty to providing material support to the People’s Mujahedin of Iran.[61][62]

      You can’t mix ideologies, for a little leaven ferments the whole loaf.

  • poljunkie

    Ahhhh Barney died. President Bush’s little dog of 12 years. He’s the little guy who bit the Reuters reporter that time.

    • Nukeman60

      Oh, I thought you were talking about Barney Frank. Of course, he would never bite a reporter (especially from Reuters. Barney, the dog, was a smart pup).

      On a side note, thanks for the heads up on the movie The Road and the series Jerico and Survivors. I’ve seen the first two, but will check out the third one.

      Your comment was the 11th post in the thread, so I could not respond back there.

      • poljunkie

        hee hee— The Road,jericho and Survivor, our all time favorites….

        Yes we are warped.

  • poljunkie

    • BlueGood

      • poljunkie

      As long as Miss Jane Deere doesn’t start writing prison letters to the cat in the mug shot in prison photo # 1. She’s scary. But has a strange a allure and intrigue about her bad self.
      she is on Facebook. OY. ha

      • LOL but did you see what page on FB she’s looking at? I also Have photos of her looking at Glenn Beck at the rally a few years ago and also reading Scoop! hhahahaha!

        • poljunkie

          Yes I did. That was pretty good.

          My dogs better not get any ideas.

  • FreeManWalking

    I receive this Letter to Editor Newtown Bee link in an email.

    The following link takes you to a short letter-to-the-editor of a Newtown, CT newspaper.
    It is wonderfully encouraging to read this man’s opinion and note that his entirely
    accurate thoughts were…apparently… actually printed.

    • Excellent!! Thank you for sharing that FreeManWalkingfriend!!

    • Orangeone

      Thank you for sharing this great letter!

      I was glad to see the Newtown CT school board go for armed security in elementary schools.

      • FreeManWalking

        They were exposed!

        They found out and paid the ultimate price because their security measures no matter how well thought, were not sufficient when an armed lunatic enters a Gun Free Zone.

  • Rshill7

    I’m a little bummed. Tried to buy a Ruger P95 this early evening and the background check system was too busy to get an instant approval. Now I have to wait for the dealer to call me back with a delayed approval 🙁

    You know, when you want something, it sucks when you can’t get it. I wanted to “play with it” this evening…by that I mean, get more familiar with it.


    • poljunkie

      Good things come to those who wait (or something)…but I know the feeling of impatience.

      Good to see you you Rs. Where you been hiding?

      • Rshill7

        Working and stuff..reading. Getting near the end of “The Everlasting Man” by G.K. Chesterton. I’ve also been whittling sharp points on a bunch of ultra-long girthy spears, like they used in Braveheart, when William Wallace said, “hold, hold, hoolllld…!”


    • Orangeone

      Bloody hell, just another example of inefficiency in gov’t.

  • Joe

    I hope that Kitten is a Conservative!

  • John_Frank

    On Marco Rubio, Talk Radio & Amnesty 2.0
    Marco Rubio was backed by the conservative tea party movement in 2010 against an establishment republican, recently turned democrat, Charlie Crist. Now Rubio has sided with the Washington establishment to push Amnesty 2.0 a.k.a. Comprehensive Immigration Reform. Rubio was sent to Washington to help in the restoration of America–not to become part of the problem. When a Rubio 2016 pusher tells you “but it’s not amnesty” doesn’t that sound awfully reminiscent of the Romney 2012 pushers who said “Romney care isn’t Obama care?” Obama may hold off on the amnesty push to use it to win back the House in 2014. A familiar talk radio caller personifies the low information republican voters.

      I heard that, and as a Republican. Who is he kidding?

    I miss my Siamese kitten, Wheatena. She had five little wheatcakes once: Semolina, Farina, Buckwheat, Max and Saskachewan. They all found good homes!

    BTW if you want to email AIPAC about the F-16’s/tanks, their site contact us link isn’t working,

    but their mid-Atlantic local office email is:

    [email protected]

    and I am hoping the batch FAX link to all Congressmen at the Conservative Caucus is up and running again soon. Meanwhile it is still FAX one at a time. List of FAXes for all Congressmen is at:

    Muslim Sharia vigilante patrols in the UK turn even more vicious – A muslim woman wearing a hijab throws acid on a young woman going home from work. The victim was sole income and support for her disabled mother.

  • Myptofvu

    ObamaCare was going to add 11 million people to Healthcare. How is this cost to be covered? by charging $68 per year for 5 years to those paying for Healthcare. This figure did not include illegal aliens which will add an additional 11 million if Amnesty passes.

    People became unglued when Papa John announced it they would have to add 14 cents to the price of each pizza to cover Obamacare costs just think about how they’re gonna feel when they learn that it is them that are paying for the uninsured and that Free Health Care is not FREE…lol…I can hear their screeches from here.

    Tweet from Ted Cruz: For first time in Pew poll’s history, a majority feel fed govt poses a threat to their personal rights & freedoms :

  • Orangeone

    This was on a tweet from our own BetseyRoss. It’s a You Tube from NY, citizens responding and questioning politicians on the new law. I recommend beverages be set at least 5 feet your computer, it’s that good 🙂
