On a recent trip to a botanical garden, my son saw a squirrel a few feet away from us. He said, "Dad, you ought to take a picture of that squirrel."
I did. Right after I took the picture, the squirrel squatted down, spread his legs out, and laid belly down on the dirt to cool off. Of course, I took another picture. I think my son and I will laugh about that squirrel for years to come.
In in the midst of the biggest economic crisis in 80 years, he points fingers and blames anyone who opposes him. Even as he insists on maintaining historic high spending rates, he blames political gridlock for the loss of our nations AAA credit rating. With what can now be safely referred to as his motto, he placed blame on former President Bush for the debt mess, even though he has spent as much in 2 years as Bush spent in 8. In the same speech, he blamed Wall Street and Europe.
At the same time, his talking heads blame the Tea Party for the downgrade. Remember, the Tea Party is calling for cuts in irresponsible government spending. These were the folks pushing for a balanced budget amendment, so naturally, a credit rating downgrade must be their fault because anything that does not feed big government must be bad.
The Sibyl mocking writes, "The American People have failed President Obama and they must be replaced."
Pointing fingers is not a new tactic for Obama. Here is a link to some of his previous attempts at blame shifting.
President Obama, remember, when you point one finger at someone else, you are pointing three fingers back at yourself.
Police urge holster use after man shoots own penis
A bullet accidentally fired from a pink handgun struck the penis of an Arizona man
By PoliceOne Staff
CHANDLER, Ariz. — An accidental bullet struck the penis of an Arizona man who was carrying his fiance's gun in the waistband of his pants.
When the pink handgun fired during the couple's visit to a grocery store on Sunday, Joshua Seto, 27, immediately began bleeding heavily, and fiance Cara Christopher promptly called 911, according to USA Today.
Christopher was instructed to use pressure to stop the bleeding and to avoid looking at the wound -- which she did anyway.
“I did look at it," Christopher said. "It's pretty bad."
Police are warning armed residents to exercise caution when handling firearms.
"Always treat firearms as though they are loaded, Chandler Police Detective Seth Tyler said. "If you are going to carry a handgun on your person, use a holster, not your waistband."
It was unclear whether Seto had been released from the hospital or if there will be permanent damage, police said.
Michael Bay, director of the recent Transformer trilogy, get's a lot of criticism for producing movies that are heavy on special effects but shallow in terms of plot and character development. Fans laud the 2 hour thrill rides he directs, but critics say his work is less than art because he does not focus on the elements of good story.
What would the critics say if Bay took on a classical story with great depth, like Bronte's Jane Eyre?
