Dennys Global Politics: Libya: Specific Targeting: Predator Drones, Gazillion Political Cartoons

Dennys Global Politics: Libya: Specific Targeting: Predator Drones, Gazillion Political Cartoons: "From Denny: America is off their war holiday and back in the driver's seat with NATO in Libya. Read that as the other guys so screwed up they demanded America go back to spending all the money and taking all the heat when the bombs land on unintended targets. They never did get their targeting as accurate as America does.

The latest? Well, at least we are using less expensive weaponry. This time we are back to using the drones with Hellfire missiles like we used in Pakistan. Of course, Pakistan is tired of us and ordered out our CIA intelligence gathering crowd. They aren't too happy with our drones killing off well-paying Taliban who fund the corrupt members of the Pakistani military and political circle.

So, what is a self-respecting American military to do? Well, just slide those useful drones right on over to Libya, of course: brilliant! We can boast about how we save money for the budget deal of a life time. Then we can brag how we don't kill quite as many innocents when we bomb Gadafi's troops."

The Social Poets: Funny 1917 CIA Spy Technology Docs Released: Invisible Writing


The Social Poets: Funny 1917 CIA Spy Technology Docs Released: Invisible Writing: "From Denny:  Anyone who regularly reads this blog knows I grew up in the CIA. Yes, it was one weird childhood living with such paranoid uptight and often humorless people. Whenever the CIA releases ancient documents molding down in their deep dark spy basement it always gives me a grin.

When I was a kid we spent a lot of time figuring out codes since Dad had been a code breaker in WWII - among other things. One of our other childhood past times was to figure out intriguing ways to pass messages and, yes, write in invisible ink. Even Dad joined in the fun. My mother just shook her head and thought we were all a bunch of looney tunes. Knowing Dad he was probably using his baby geniuses to do his research on the cheap. Who said you can't take your work home with you?

Anyway, it is with great pleasure I present to you Rachel Maddow's cheeky report about Dear Ol' Dad's creepy CIA. This week, The New CIA under Director Leon Panetta, and a lot less creepy, odious and just plain obnoxious, released some 1917 technology for public viewing, er, laughter."

Poems From A Spiritual Heart: Stephen Colbert Interviews Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg About Poetry


Poems From A Spiritual Heart: Stephen Colbert Interviews Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg About Poetry: "From Denny: While Stephen Colbert, of The Colbert Report, is known for his satire and wildly funny self, he does manage to do some almost serious interviews. In this case, Caroline Kennedy, daughter of President John F. Kennedy, is rolling out a book of poetry.

This book, 'She Walks In Beauty,' is comprised of men writing poems about women to celebrate them. The collection is about women celebrating themselves, describing the special connection women have to poetry from growing up in the world of emotion."

The Social Poets: New Terrorism Alert System: Gone Is Bush Era Funny

The Social Poets: New Terrorism Alert System: Gone Is Bush Era Funny: "From Denny: What? My Democrats have gone and done something that makes sense? Whatever will we do without the crazy antics of the Republicans running the federal government? There goes the good entertainment value for your vote.


My own terror alert for Homeland Security when new poems are published

Gone is the stupid color coded terror chart of the Bush years we all loved to lampoon regularly. Today, Homeland Security revealed the obvious: two levels of alert, 'elevated threat' and 'imminent threat.'

Read elevated threat as 'Take a look around and be aware of your surroundings and pay attention to the news while you are at it.' Read imminent threat as 'You are basically screwed if you didn't pay attention to the first warning and check your phone apps for updates.'"

The Social Poets: Funny Tax Season: Cartoons and Late Nite Jokes


The Social Poets: Funny Tax Season: Cartoons and Late Nite Jokes: "General Electric did not pay any taxes at all last year. Of course that’s because G.E. reported its sale of NBC as a charitable donation. – Conan O'Brien

President Obama wants to raise taxes on the country's richest people. And you thought Donald Trump hated him before. – Jay Leno

Obama called on Americans to have more grandchildren. Probably so there's more of them to pay off our debt. – Jay Leno

In the wake of record losses, the U.S. Postal Service announced it is cutting 7,500 jobs. But a spokesman for the post office said those positions could be restored if this whole email thing turns out to be nothing but a fad. – Jay Leno"

Dennys: News Politics Comedy Science Arts & Food: Posts Roundup at Dennys Blogs - 17 April 2011

Dennys: News Politics Comedy Science Arts & Food: Posts Roundup at Dennys Blogs - 17 April 2011: "While the Japanese nuclear crisis continues unabated, the rest of the world has moved on, dreading the inevitable. At the moment the world community has pressured Japan to come up with a plan to contain or deal with the crisis over a nine month period.

Why the same people are in charge of this mess that created the mess is a mystery. It's as foolish as it was to trust BP to clean up the oil spill disaster in my own Gulf of Mexico. Serious hardships still exist as a result of President Obama and BP refusing to do what it takes to make things right, especially in Louisiana.

At the very least the President could do is refuse to allow BP access to any of America's oil fields on or off shore. The company has simply not earned the right to drill for oil on American soil or in our oceans."

Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Video: Fat Cat Slouches Couch Potato Style, Watches Russian TV: "This cat must be paying off some bad karma from some life time when he was naughty and was not allowed to reincarnate as a higher form of life, a human being.

The Social Poets: Funny Videos: Jon Stewart Mocks Glenn Beck FOX News Departure

Glenn Beck by Gage SkidmoreGlenn Beck - Image via Wikipedia

The Social Poets: Funny Videos: Jon Stewart Mocks Glenn Beck FOX News Departure: "Did any of us think the long rambling weird reign of foul-mouthed Glenn Beck would ever stop? Well, even FOX News has had enough and told him last week his show was canceled. He will depart the end of the year when his contract ends. Well, it never was real news, just imagined news.

For months comics have lampooned Beck's messianic Hitler style attitude and declarations. Well, even Beck's fans began to evaporate. Turns out in January his fan base began dwindling. Originally, at the height of his nightly viewership was clocked at about three million."

The Social Poets: Government Shutdown and Cartoons: Courtesy of Tea Party and GOP

Boehner And CantorGOP Cantor, left, GOP Speaker Boehner, right - Image by TalkMediaNews via Flickr
The Social Poets: Government Shutdown and Cartoons: Courtesy of Tea Party and GOP: "This budget mess is a dark farce, courtesy of the Republicans and their inbred political cousins, the Tea Party. The GOP hates women and they hate giving federal funding for women's health care.

Millions of women depend upon that funding in Title 10 which provides reproductive and preventative care. Since it is mainly low-income women who are the beneficiary of these funds, Republicans don't care. After all, low-income people are not their voting demographic. Nor have they ever done anything for women either.

The whole process is disingenuous. To get the $100 billion the Tea Party demands, it's obvious: all you have to do is stop these idiot wars in Afghanistan and Iraq where we spend billions per month. And now our heavy involvement in Libya is equally expensive - to the tune of $1 million per Tomahawk missile fired to enforce the No-Fly Zone.

Want more easy cuts? Try the $1 billion 'tax cuts' for the wealthy that President Obama gave away far too easily, especially when 70 percent of the entire country said they did not want the rich to get tax cuts. He foolishly did it anyway. And now, here we are months later, with all of Congress and the President looking stupid in this budget fight."

Dennys Funny Quotes: 7 Funny Cartoons: Change Is Good: "Take a short holiday trip through some funny cartoon minds to pick you up at the end of your work week.  There is a cartoon for every size and taste.  Musician?  Check.  Sports fan.  Check.  Fitness buff.  Check.  Foodie.  Double Hot Fudge Sundae Check.  Comic book fan, er, graphic novel.  Yep.  Fashionistas. That too.  And not to be missed is the Louisiana Gator cartoon, totally twisted thinking if I say so myself.  "

The Social Poets: 12 Best of The Web Funny April Fools Day: Pranked, Spoofed and Trashed


The Social Poets: 12 Best of The Web Funny April Fools Day: Pranked, Spoofed and Trashed: "There are those among us - of a cheeky bent - who look forward to this one day a year when people forgive us for pranking them. Today the web was full of April Fool's Day fun from every angle, a real bumper crop of craziness!

1 - First up: Google leads the fun with their prank about their new feature of 'motion-controlled' email. After all, typing on a keyboard is 'so last century,' right? And Google says it's also 'outdated' and 'inefficient.'

'To open a message make a movement as if you were opening an envelope. To reply, simply point backward with your thumb,' Google says in a video demonstration. More instructions? 'To reply all, use both hands. To send a message, lick a stamp and place it down.'

Well, you too can look like a complete fool by believing this satire and standing up in your office cubicle on Freaky Friday and get elected Fool Of The Day by using various body language to instruct your computer. It's like using cat body language to write an email. Hey, whatever floats your boat."

35 Stunning April Wallpapers

From Denny:  OK, I found all my favorites for the month of April out there in Wallpaper Land and posted them here for you. These are mainly desktop wallpapers, available without the calendars and in various sizes. Don't worry about the screen shot if it has a year on it as there are those images available without a specific date.  All of these images were vetted to avoid that frustration. There are some wallpapers available for smaller technology than a desktop and there are links to the designers' sites. These beauties were found in the "basement archives" of Smashing Magazine. Enjoy!

And not to be missed is a funny April Fool's Day post:

Dennys Funny Quotes: 3 Funny Videos: Jon Stewart At Not War, Obama Defends Libya War: "Jon Stewart sure keeps this White House on their toes. Actually, he agrees with the President on going into Libya for the most part. But, being a comedian, it's his patriotic duty to lampoon politics wherever and whenever possible. These video clips are Stewart's response to when Obama and the coalition began bombing Gadafi to gain air superiority, establishing the No-Fly Zone."

The Social Poets: Funny April Fools Day - Cheeky Quote Day


The Social Poets: Funny April Fools Day - Cheeky Quote Day 31 Mar 2010: "Just how old is the April Fools Day custom? Back in the 1500's, about 1582 in France, the day began as a way to ridicule stodgy people who were too stubborn to change with the times. Spring time is the season of change and cultures have always honored it. What funnier way to honor the concept of change in our lives than to play an April Fool's Day joke on someone? Tell yourself to be a good sport if you find yourself on the other side of that practical joke. The whole point of the day is to learn how to laugh at yourself because that is a sure sign that you are no fool. Ah, the road to wisdom... :)"

Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Video: Stephen Colbert: Turd Sandwich in Libya

Stephen Colbert in New York City at Border's s...Image via Wikipedia


Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Video: Stephen Colbert: Turd Sandwich in Libya: "Only Stephen Colbert can put lipstick on a pig and call it beautiful. And that's what he did with Newt Gingrich's strange anti-Obama Anything that rarely makes sense these days. First, Newt is FOR a No-Fly Zone in Libya and then when Obama creates said zone, well, then Newtie is now against it. Go figure. Better yet - as Jon Stewart said, 'There are actually at least three women in America who have F'd Newt Gingrich. Now that's amazing!'

Turns out the funny name for this episode is because a White House aide told a reporter, Savannah Guthrie, that this Libya situation is basically so disgusting it's 'a turd sandwich.' Gee, and all the women in the world thought he was talking about Newtie. Hmmm... Gadafi or Newtie... yep, both are a filling for that sandwich.

What's funny is how badly the Republican critics of Obama kept trying to frame Obama's Libya speech. They tried to call it 'a dog's breakfast' to which Colbert puts up photos of breakfast at McDonald's to verify."
