A big Sticky Paw to redefining the meaning of words and phrases like patriotism and political correctness...
Seems as though the meaning of these words have been bandied about quite a bit lately.
Take patriotism for example; it seems it is only patriotic if it fits my agenda and terms.
When Colin Kaepernick, a football player expressed his first amendment rights by not standing during the playing of the National Anthem his actions were scrutinized by anyone and everyone.
He was called unpatriotic and told he was disrespecting the troops.
In case anyone forgot that is why the troops are troops.
Yes, they are there to protect us from harm but they are also there to defend this country's right to freedom of speech and the right to protest! Just like this guy who protested Mr. Kaepernick's actions which he found objectionable by burning the player's number 7 football jersey.
Next we come to the definition of politically correct which is now something so subjective that it's lost all meaning completely.
Let me preface this next one with a comment; You will never know how many opportunities we have had to give Sticky Paws and Hairballs to Donald Trump over the last 15 months that we didn't take.
That being said there are times we can't ignore certain things he says and does so a great big Sticky Paw to Donald Trumps attempt to re write history and try to walk back the whole birther movement he's been promoting over the past 5-6 years.
Moving on, a HUGE kitty kiss to Michel Obama!
Years from now she will be the gold standard for what a great first ladyshould be.
And a great big Kitty Kiss to Reverend Faith Green Timmons of Bethel United Methodist Church in Flint, Michigan for being gracious and patient while standing her ground!
And lastly, we want to give a shout out and a big Fuzzy Hug to The Greater Good animal rescue site.
They have this super bright and cute apron that would make a great Christmas gift and
every purchase buys 14 bowls of food for rescued animals!
Well, everyone said the race wouldn't get serious until after Labor Day so...
let's check in on the candidates and see how things are going.
Donald Trump you remind me of the teen age boy who just got a brand new motor scooter, If you had an ounce of discipline you'd just fill it with gas and ride it straight to the steps of the White House.
But no not Donald, you have to pop wheelies and go too fast and not wear a helmet and now no one wants to get on the back and go for a ride...
Because in the end you're just riding around screaming " look at me, look at me!" And when the glitz and grandeur wears off , the people are going to want to see some substance so you better find some.
And for goodness sake PICK A LANE!
Just stick to one thing you say, just one or at least remember to take your Ritalin.
Last, show us your taxes!
I'm not sure what the plan was here.
To just hang back and stay out of the way for a gazillion days while the other guy rides his motor scooter into a brick wall? So you can calmly walk through the debris and just be the last man ( or woman ) standing?
Oh sweetie! You can't go to the party and sit against the wall and hope that someone will ask you to dance.
You've got to get your butt out of the chair walk out to the middle of the dance floor and show them your moves!
And those e-mails?
Look, by this point they are yours, they aren't going anywhere. Own them, warts and all and move on.
And this bit about " I don't remember because I had a concussion? "
If you think anyone is buying that explanation I've got a slightly used motor scooter to sell you...
Okay, so Hillary's not the most popular girl in the class. We get it. She's a little stand-offish and not who you would pick to be your BFF.
But everyone knows she will get the answers right on the test so it's her notes they will borrow and her paper they will copy.
Let's face it in the end she's the only way we will all pass the class.
