What do you do?
Kevin Richardson can “spend the night curled up” with lions, “caresses them”, he can “Hold newborn hyena cubs without the mother pouncing to the rescue”…bla bla bla.
In my yard, mice run from cats, dogs run from cats, raccoons run from cats. But they all run from the rabbit. Our rabbit.
♫”Farewell, and adieu to you fair Spanish ladies….”♫
This is not how democracy is supposed to work.
I’ve said all along, that this can’t possibly pass…it’s too wildly unpopular with the American people. Yet it’s very close to passing. NRO is saying it’s down to seven Senators who could stop the bill.
Stanley Kurtz in the Corner is getting a bad vibe.
So am I.
If they can do this, what will stop them from imposing the “Fairness Doctrine” on us?
The Reverend Tadeus Nguyen Van Ly is in jail for peacefully protesting the Communist regime in Vietnam. Gateway Pundit has the story.
Please, sign the petition condemning the Vietnamese government’s abuses of human rights.
I tell my kids (not often enough) how lucky we are to have been born in a free country.
We’ve all had to deal with “noisy neighbors” at some time or another, but how about noisy neighbors who blare a recording of pugnacious, fighting geese, on four speakers, every 10 minutes or so, all over the lake?
That would almost have to be a new one for most of you.
The sounds are meant to scare the geese off the guy’s back yard, where they leave huge messes of goose poop. But it’s not working, because, even as the sounds emanate from the speakers, I can see geese in his yard.
It’s apparently really ticking off the neighbors, though, who live in close proximity to it. They’re getting ready to send the offending party a registered letter of complaint, which all of the lake dwellers are being asked to sign.
To tell you the truth, I’ve never really noticed the sounds, myself, until my husband drew my attention to them. First of all, we live across the lake from it, so it’s not as loud for us, but I tend to block out unwelcome noises, anyway. Whether it’s jet-skis, an early morning weed whacker, dogs barking…whatever…(sounds that drive my husband nuts) I just tune out. Must be a by-product of having lots of kids.
My solution was to send the neighbors a recording of my kids fighting…Hey, that’s mine! Give it back! Let go! I’m telling mom! Stop it! MMMMMMOMMMMM!...and have them blare that on four speakers in their direction. (When they’re home).
See how they like it.
Just talked to one of my neighbors.
Apparently, it’s not fighting geese on the recording. It’s distressed geese, being attacked by a fox. That’s even better.
Fox is reporting that a judge has ruled in favor of the dry cleaner in the case of the the missing pants.
Judge Roy L. Pearson had sued the small Korean business for 54 mil. because they didn’t live up to the expectations he’d had from seeing the “Satisfaction Guaranteed” sign in their window.
He’s been ordered to pay for all of the defendant’s court costs.
You can knock me over with a feather. I wasn’t expecting this much sanity from a D.C. Superior Court Judge.
I guess she wasn’t impressed by Pearson’s tears on the witness stand.

But if any of you want to, go right ahead.
Hapless youngsters as young as six years old are being used by the Taliban in suicide missions, according to NATO forces, The Guardian is reporting.
In one recent case,
The boy was spotted after appearing confused at a checkpoint. The vest was defused and no one was hurt. “They placed explosives on a six-year-old boy and told him to walk up to the Afghan police or army and push the button,” said Captain Michael Cormier, the company commander who intercepted the child, in a statement. “Fortunately, the boy did not understand and asked patrolling officers why he had this vest on.”
The rules of military engagement are easily muddied when a child poses a direct threat, he explained. “What we do if we identify the fact that an adult is wearing a suicide vest is we use whatever force we deem necessary to protect the lives of our soldiers and any civilians. Of course it makes it more difficult – it’s a six year-old child.”
Un. be. lievable.
How do we win against such savagery?
She’s one of our two cats, and she’s a real bitch, let me tell you.
Oh sure, she’s trying to look all innocent and cute in the picture, but believe me, she’s not all sweetness and light. Not by a long shot.
For instance, she likes to poop in my flower beds. Last year, I booby-trapped my impatiens bed with toothpicks and cayenne pepper, (which she did not appreciate), and she retaliated by shitting all over my coat closet. The odor, and mess was horrific. But she learned her lesson, because she didn’t make the same mistake, this year.
I googled “Niblets” just for the hell of it. Okay I wanted to see where Nice Deb would turn up on the list. (Bottom of the second page).
Did you know this?
I did not know that.
The kids named the dumb bunny, honestly!
The film Islam Vs. Islamists is the film that PBS has balked at airing, inspiring the creation of the website, Free The Film.
ABG Films is announcing that they have reached an agreement with the Corporation For Public Broadcasting that will bring an end to the suppression of the documentary.
In the meantime Fox will air the special Sat. June 23rd. No time was listed.
Found via KJL at The Corner.
The Show was pre-empted for coverage of the murder of Jesse Davis. It’s been rescheduled for 3:00 am(?!) EDT Sunday. That may be pre-empted as well.
In the meantime, my husband cut the fence, and made an enclosure around the hutch, which he left open so Niblets could go in and out as she pleased. Apparently, someone left the fence open, last night, and she escaped.
There have been no sightings, so far.
I had a horrible nightmare the night before last. But first, some background:
I had been nagging my husband to cut off the extra yards of fence we got for the garden (and was still attached to the garden fence), so we could use it for a rabbit enclosure, so poor Niblets could run around in the yard, without running away.
Well, in my dream, he took the whole fence down, and left my garden vulnerable to the rabbits. Well, when I went to check on it….there was nothing left, they had devoured every single plant in the garden, even the weeds. All that was left were a few stumps.
The dream was so vivid that when I went to check on it, yesterday morning, I was actually relieved to see that it was still there.
But it’s doing great. I haven’t had to buy lettuce or onions for weeks, and yesterday, we had our first tomato.
And, really, there’s nothing like home grown tomatoes. I’m so happy I can grow them now.
