Newt takes out new “contract”

After seeing what his “Contract with America” hath wrought these last several years (which promised the American people, among other things, to “bring transparency back to government”–puh! were you taken in?) we now have the tidings that Republican Newt *Gingerich–who was green before green was Gore-esque…back when Rs were conservationists and understood the meaning of the phrase, stewards of the earth–has unleashed a new diatribe upon the public, a book they call: “A Contract with the Earth.”

Oh my. We’re doomed.

And http://www.npr.org reported it today without even a hint of disbelief or of dread at its implications.

*Gingerich or Gingrich–I’ve seen it spelled both ways–but the ‘rich’ part stays the same.

Blackwater “investigation” successfully derailed

The Blackwater “investigation” has been successfully stalled by the granting of immunity to the gurads involved: http://my.earthlink.net/article/top?guid=20071029/472568d0_3421_133452007102988905091

and it’s okay to say, pshaw! if you like.

But Mr.A.Cat has more to say than pshaw! to say, in fact he’s in quite a huff over it–and over the fact no one will say under whose authority the immunity was granted to Blackwater guards!

So you may wish to overlook this nasty bit of limerick which I republish here with Mr.A.’s full permission, titled, Blackwater Kitty:

A kitty liked water so black

he flew all the way to Iraq

just give him a gun

Iraqis will run

while shooting themselves in the back.

–Mr.A.Cat

Droll kitty cat! Read his other fluffs and rhymery at:  http://limslimericks.blogspot.com

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
