Convergence of Confusion…

April 6, 2011


Cisco the blogging cat here…

Have you noticed lately that the world is getting very confusing? Consider

  • First, we were going to try KSM in Gitmo, then we weren’t, and now we are… And all that under a Democratic Congress…

  • We have absolutely no idea what’s going on in the Middle East/Northern Africa… Look at the list of these countries…

    • Algeria

    • Bahrain

    • Egypt

    • Iran

    • Iraq

    • Jordan

    • Kuwait

    • Lebanon

    • Libya

    • Morocco

    • Oman

    • Saudi Arabia

    • Syria

    • Tunisia

    • Yemen

    • Ivory Coast

  • We’re out of Libya because we handed that mess over to NATO except that the U.S. dominates NATO…

  • The radiation numbers out of Japan are varying wildly — anywhere from 5,000 to 5,000,000 times safe levels…

  • The ass hats in D.C. can’t even settle on a $50 billion compromise to keep our government running, let alone address our $100 trillion debt/”un-funded obligations”… (For what it’s worth… $50 billion is 1/2,000th $100 trillion…)

I don’t know… But this old cat is mightily confused…

Wandering by the racks…

Ah yes,

Summer approaches…

From Crystal Head Vodka to SkinnyGirl Margarita, Harwich Spirits Shoppe can once again offer not only a full selection of beer and wine, but also the more robust panther sweat. I’m telling you, Da Gizz has got it all including lottery, snacks, ice, sodas, mixers, tchotchkes, artisan work, and who knows what else…

Two cats just blogging by the racks waiting for you…
