Just a couple of items:

This one's self explanatory:


















If the kid that leaked the DOD information is found guilty as charged, he should be publicly executed by firing squad.

Failure to keep a right except when passing should also be a capital crime.

Having someone stick needles into you and then electrically charged them has a way of setting a bad tone for the day.

Have a nice day!

i am pissed by both events.

The first sitting president to go on a morning talk show. And a women's (yentas) talkshow to boot. The president certainly has his priorities straight.

The difference between republicans and democrats: Chelsea Clinton's wedding at $3 million plus and on the front page of everything. Jenna Bush's wedding 2 years ago had barely a headline and cost about $100K.

Karl said...

Jackie Sue: That's good to know.

Buzz Kill: Yes, he has his priorities. they have little to do with what's important to the nation, right now. Which is why he would show up in that sort of venue. All froufrou.

To me that telling thing about the two weddings, is the media coverage. It just goes to show whose pocket they're in.

Boxer: Thank you.

I'm very guilty of driving in the left-hand lane, however, if someone is right behind me I move over to let them by. I figure as long as I'm by myself in that lane and not holding anyone back I'm ok. Generally I'm already goig 10+ miles over the speed limit.

Pam said...

Love that cartoon. I have a couple of different views also. And no haiku this week; let's stay on break until the heatwave goes away and I'm human again.....

Karl said...

JAG: Not holding anyone back is a big part of it. You're safer to be in the right lane and leave the left lane open. Although since you're aware and allow others to pass.(unlike the real targets of my anger the "left lane loafer") I'll let you off of this time;)

Pam: I understand the heat's been running me tad thin too.

May the heat wave break
Setting our dear Pam free
To host our Haiku

I just got back from three days in Atlanta. Mah. Gawd. I NEVER want to feel that kind of humidity again.

Electrified needles? Now, that sounds, uh, interesting?

Karl said...

Moi: Welcome back! It's not the heat it's the humidity. I've been surprised at how much it's bothered me this year. I hope it was an otherwise productive and profitable trip.

Since I was released to return to some of my more exertive field activities, it has become apparent that, part A (my brain) and parts B (my extremities) are not connected the way they once were. And the Domme's, I mean Doctor's decided that the electrified needles would be a fun way to find the location of the broken connections. By the time they finished I was in a funk that lasted the rest of the day. It's now been a week and I still have bruises from the needles being twisted to get "just the right connection".

Heff said...

It's become PAINFULLY APPARENT that "our President" cares more about being on television than anything else.

Karl said...

Heff: Actually what is painfully apparent is once he is pushed away from his social reform agenda, he is ill prepared and some what unwilling to deal with the issues that face a president. That he would go on to a show like the View in the first place is telling, letting the topic go to subjects such as Lindsay Lohan. Show that his priorities have little to do with the solving real problems.

THe 60 room "vacation" of michelle an' cohorts angers me beyond endurance at a time when her fellow Americans is strugglin' so to pay the taxes she blows to the wind.

I gotta dollar that say Michelle puts a collar on him. GAG, THESE PEOPLE ARE REVOLTIN'. Geitner should be drawn an quartered. Rahmbo needs to be gigged whar' polite folks doan mention...

BTW I drive mah buggy down the centerline..

Just Another Girl said...

Alright then, what is the penalty for a second offense? :-)

Karl said...

Aunty Belle:, I too am finding it a little difficult to keep a civil tongue in my head when the subject of the president comes up. And his cronies, well talk about the wolf guarding the henhouse.
You know you may have a very good topic for a group post: "if I were emperor or empress, what would I do" What do y'all think? Anybody in?
You may remember me discussing an accident I had a while back. I was knocked off a deck crane and hit the deck pretty hard. Well, I got kind of busted up. Broke my back in two places, broke my sternum and tore the ligaments off my left shoulder. The docs screwed my shoulder back together (you ought to see the x-ray, it looks like a five year old gone wild with a screw gun) Ever since the surgery there's been a constant pain in the shoulder. since it didn't go away and I can otherwise function. They cut me loose and I went back to diving. Now after a few hours in the water, I start to have problems with the nerves in my left arm. One Dr. thinks it's from my diving helmet and one thinks it's in the shoulder. The test was to find out exactly where the nerve damage is located. This is why it's called the "practice" of medicine. Sorry for the long winded response.
Centerline Hmm, I hope we don't meet at the crest of a hill someday.

JAG: I'm sure I could think of something creative;)

Gadfly said...

So I see O_O

Although I'm right there with you on the "stay right"

Karl said...

Gadfly: I seem to remember from a few of your stories, that you tend to drive like you're on the autobahn. Which makes a left lane loafer not just a matter of irritation, but a matter of personal safety.
