Friday pussy and other insane news


Guess the beavers have high tailed it up to their dams in the deep woods. Far safer with all the fires going on right now.
Don't forget the "head and shoulders".
And our first entrée to our news d' jour today must be personhood for dandruff. Huh? Scientists in Japan have managed to coax stem cells into mice eggs from skin cells. Gee what will the think of next? To their credit medical science has managed to cure just about every ailment a mouse could ever have. Now if they could just get the human treatments right we might have something. I'd bet our pussy in the photo is just overjoyed on this news. More mice, yummy.

More extremist on the loose.
And just when we thought it was safe to get the hell out of Dodge er Afghanistan a little under reported news states that:
The revolutions that swept the Middle East and North Africa also emptied prisons of militants, a problem now emerging as a potential new terrorist threat.
Fighters linked to one freed militant, Muhammad Jamal Abu Ahmad, took part in the Sept. 11 attack on U.S. diplomatic outposts in Libya that killed four Americans, U.S. officials believe based on initial reports. Intelligence reports suggest that some of the attackers trained at camps he established in the Libyan Desert, a former U.S. official said.
Ex- Philippine president arrested for plunder. 

Philippine police have descended on a Manila hospital, and placed former president Gloria Arroyo under arrest for plunder.
The onetime Philippine leader is already on trial for fraud and corruption.
Gee maybe we could get her a job on Wall Street. The boys up there could teach her how not to get caught.

Romney tries to walk back the 47% comment.
Sorry Mittens there isn't enough knobs on your etch - a -sketch to handle that one. You said it we heard it. No mulligans now.

So speaking of failures I'll get to the bank fails and parking lot index later.

Update: No bank fails this week. The parking lot index needs a correction. One neighbor died. One had a stroke and can't work and two others moved out. Looking very quiet around here.

UK, USSR, US v Afghanistan. What do they have in common?

This is only going to lead to the mutant mice takeover. Anyone have any of Chimpy's animal-human hybrids left over to combat this new menace?

Demeur said...

Roger, Let me guess. They were all failed plans.

Randal, I think Dr. Moreau has some stashed somewhere.

It was a hell of a fine day here.

Afganistan- graveyard of empires.



Retch-A-Stretch Rawmoney, what a filthy swine.

Why did O'Bama not finish him off instead of looking at his fucking wingtips all evening?
I can understand a cold, slow start but jumping jebus on a pogostick there's no excuse for that exhibition. Once again we'll only get what we deserve.

Demeur said...

Why didn't Obama finish him off? Because cats like to play with their prey.

S.W. Anderson said...

Obama must really believe keeping our troops in Afghanistan is important. I'll bet he could've boosted his approval rating more than 20 points by ordering the troops home by this Christmas. Of course, the Republicans would've spent the year chanting, "Retreat and defeat."

I get the impression if he and the rest of us were to live long enough, Romney would say everything there is to say about anything, and in due time take everything he said back.
