Fireworks scrapped…

leave a comment »

There will be no traditional Fourth of July   fireworks displays  at some Army and Marine bases this year due to lack of funds.   No word on whether generals’ wives and daughters and mistresses will have to forego their boob jobs and face-lifts…

View from Africa…

leave a comment »

Some in Africa have woken up and seen the truth of His Oneness much more clearly than Americans do.   This is  a devastating column,  despite the fact that it missed a great tag  —  Obama went to Africa for a vacation,  Bush went to save lives.

Garbage in, garbage out…

leave a comment »

How fitting that His Oneness should have  a big photo op  at what he promotes as the departure point for slaves,  from a place too shallow to accommodate slave ships.   Except it turns out that no actual historians believe it was anything more than a place to dump garbage.    No doubt the Door of No Return sounded so great when they were planning the trip that no one bothered to do a scintilla of research.

Cockroach rescuers?

leave a comment »

I suppose if I required rescue from a collapsed building I wouldn’t care if if a cockroach was the one to locate me,  but it would be nice to know  that research  had finally found a use for the nasty little beasts.

Who knew there were birthers awaiting the arrival of His Oneness in Senegal,  wearing T-shirts saying “Welcome Home”?

Lilly stays!

leave a comment »

Lilly the deer will be  allowed to stay  with the family who rescued the orphan at birth and has taken care of her for five years.   Good for the reasonable judge,  and shame on the new neighbors who reported the family instead of inquiring into the circumstances.
