UK expense leak case inspires cat’s limerick

Well, I didn’t ask for this but elusive spycat Mr.A. Cat has sent along a new limerick concerning the ongoing scandal (read: cat fight!) in Britain over misuse of public funds for politicians’ private expenses.

If you’ve phoned a repairman recently, you know that the costs of moat repair and maintenance are out-the-roof these days – what’s a well-paid member of parliament to do but fudge expenses? After all, everyone’s doing it, right?

So do check out Mr. A’s Afluff Is the Cat from UK, if you dare. Rrraowrrrr-r-r!

You’ll find that a BBC News link to the story is included in the post along with a complimentary cat photo, too.

Are Politicians snarly cats?

 Wiley on deck!

Well, of course I know that politicians are not in actuality, cats of the feline persuasion.

But don’t you think that when their hackles rise up on the House floor or dramatically in front of cameras and microphones – don’t they kind of remind you of old tomcats hissing and growling at one another trying to defend their territory? 

Maybe it’s just me. Or somebody needs a good catnap on his/her office sofa, cellphone OFF.

Anyway, Mr.A. Cat, an agent formerly in service to our nation but now retired to an undisclosed location, has phoned in a new political limerick to his contact, my boss, Lim over at Lim’s Limericks where I do the typing…because cats don’t have hands. Also my spelling is a bit better, but not by much.

Yes, it’s an unpaid position but it’s the least I can do for the mysteriously elusive Mr.A. who put himself at risk so many times on our nation’s behalf while foregoing the soft cushion in the corner by the fireplace as most kittycats would do being the creatures of comfort they are.

How often have I asked this burning question: who knew that cats could be so political? and not yet have I received a satisfactory answer from man or feline on this issue.

So the feed for Lim’s Limericks is now added at the end of the feeds list in my sidebar hereupon if you should wish to check out Mr.A.’s latest limericky growl…seems he’s concerned over our November 4th elections – and who wouldn’t be?  Can I get a Meow Meow?

Besides, everyone knows that cats have opinions of their own and obviously hold membership in the Independent Party, yes? There’s an unsubstantiated rumor going round that some political cats may even be affiliated with the Libertarian Party.

So at worst I’m guilty of allowing the political cat limericks of Lim and Mr.A.Cat to help me get through the merde of the Washington litterbox by laughing at these jokers whose mamas must’ve taught them better than they’re doing against us. Rrraorrrww-w-w!

There’s a difference between Palin and Dan Quayle

Well, it’s been hours now, and McCain’s pick of Alaska Governor Sara Palin on Friday is apparently no joke after all.

Robert J. Elisberg has written an insightful article on Sara Palin’s qualifications for national office and on John McCain’s choice of ‘The Worst Vice-Presidential Nominee in U.S. History’:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robert-j-elisberg/the-worst-vice-presidenti_b_122491.html

As Elisberg notes, Dan Quayle was a sitting senator when tapped. And Gov. Palin voted against polar bears and supports oil drilling in ANWR.

But fascinating as Sara Palin as VP may seem, there’s one thing I’ve always noted to myself (since nothing in politics happens by accident):

when they divert all eyes toward one direction, we should pay more attention to where they’re NOT pointing. For that may just be where the real shell game is being played.

Here’s a limerick scratched in the litter box of Mr.A.Cat from July 2006, ‘Alaska’:

http://limslimericks.blogspot.com/2006/07/alaska.html

Mr.A. doesn’t think well of corrupt political thespians so it’s a wonder he follows Politics at all!

quick notes on Sara Palin’s natal chart

Sara Heath Palin, Feb 11, 1964, Sandpoint Idaho, sunrise: 7:06:26 am PST, Moon in Capricorn and in Aquarius before day ends.

~You’ll also be aware that a birth time of ‘4:40 pm’ is being used by many astrologers which gives Palin a Leo ascendant to go along with her mane of hair and attraction to being onstage.

Gov Palin’s natal Moon, at sunrise 29Cap11, is near the natal Moon of John McCain 27Cap03. although depending on her actual time of birth, natal Moon could be as late in zodiacal degrees as 8AQ08.

There are connections between her planets and those of McCain:

McCain: Sun 6Vir02 and Neptune 16Vir07; Palin: Uranus 8Vir43 and Pluto 13Vir28.

Palin’s natal Sun 21AQ55; Mars 23AQ08 are being visited by slow-moving, inspired if undermining Neptune. This is giving her a rather problematic midpoint picture and I’m not sure how it will affect her VP term if she gets it.

Because the trigger is veiling Neptune, there is some kind of masking going on with her true purpose (Sun) and action principle (Mars) which may relate to the current independent investigation of a firing of an Alaskan government employee, and what may have been personal vindictiveness on Palin’s part.

Sun/Mars = Neptune: undermining of one’s vocational position; dishonest activity; receiving notice; disappointment; feeling ‘off track’; illness; the deceived or deceptive husband.

In the case mentioned, the midpoint energy and transit may be operating in its usual ‘AC-DC’ way – from Palin, toward her, or both.

This is too quick a study for I must mosey elsewhere in a while, but looking at Palin’s Pre-Natal Eclipse Series (1 South), we see that it is the: ‘flooded with many options/ideas and their enthusiastic expression’ Series. (Brady’s ‘Predictive Astrology’) and its meaning may relate to the August 1, 2008 Solar Eclipse season we are now in because that is the Pre-Natal Eclipse Series of Senator McCain:

https://judecowell.wordpress.com/solar-eclipse-aug-1-2008-10-south-series/

How relate? Both Series have to do with ‘options’ and McCain’s has a ‘worry clearing and the cosmos showing a solution with many options opening up’ flavor.

Seems Sara Palin as his VP running mate is the option to improve his prez chances!

One thing to note as well, however, is that the two Repulicans have a Nodal Axis sign ‘flip’…his North Node is in early Capricorn, hers in Cancer, which means they will either bring out the best or the worst in one another.

In transits, NN to SN is a time when associations tend to end unless they are very strong – if so, they make adjustments and become closer and more committed. If you saw the photo of them hugging today at the Dayton rally, you may agree that all seems well as of yet!

Or maybe I should say: too soon to tell, too close to call.

Update Sep 3: Oh dear. There’s been a Palin limerick posted…

http://limslimericks.blogspot.com/2008/09/fluffiest-kitten-from-palin.html

Note – Sept 10: from henceforth I promise to use ‘Sarah’ rather than ‘Sara’! Thanks, Monica!  ;p

~:~

UPDATE 10.11.08: I want to add three natal midpoint pictures only one of which depends upon a birth time in which case I am using the unverified ‘4:40 pm’ chart which gives her Pluto/Mc = NN: desire to gain leadership by force. (This picture would apply if the 4:40 pm time is correct.)

Jupiter/Neptune = Mercury: rasing hopes; inspiration; talking a lot; putting on an act; changing character.

Neptune/NN = Pluto: difficulty blending one’s personal perspectives with others.

And since yesterday’s release of the investigative report on Palin’s “Trooper-Gate” scandal and the finding that she did, in fact, abuse her office in the case, I peeked at her natal asteroids which have to do with power or the abuse of it:

Hidalgo (often prominent in a woman’s chart when in a leadership role) 18Lib52 Rx…Hidalgo ‘expects to be in charge’ and was higlighted by the Sun as the report was released; fiesty and tenacious Toro 22Sag38; and Atlantis, keywords: ‘abuse of power’ at 21Lib35 Rx, also recently highlighted by the Sun.

~Atlantis also relates to America as the idyllic “New Atlantis” of the Utopians whose decendants may be part of society’s current crew of bedeviling and chaos-creating social tinkerers.~

Hidalgo’s North Node is in the 21 – 22 Aries range which is opposing Palin’s natal Hidalgo.

Plus, you’ll be happy to know that there is a personal name asteroid for ‘Sara’ which has its North Node at 00Lib+ conjunct America’s natal Midheaven in the Sibly chart (July 4, 1776; 5:10 pm LMT: Philadelphia, PA) – good for public career matters for the governor of Alaska.

Cat limericks Obama’s overseas tour

At last! Mr. A. Cat has gotten through to us at Lim’s Limericks with a freshly scratched limerick which seems to apply to Barack Obama’s recent overseas tour of presidentiness:

Cat from Iran: a limerick

There once was a cat from Iran

who got hot and turned on a fan

it wasn’t enough

to cool off his fluff

so atoms were split in Tehran.

He worked long and hard on the splits

while George threw incompetent fits

by acting so proud

no weapons allowed

or sanctions will come in a blitz.

So who gave the arms race it’s start?

who played the gargantuan part?

America’s clout

could take the world out

but that wouldn’t be very smart.
