It's the weekend and it's time for Noodle's Sticky Paws and Hairballs vs. Fuzzy Hugs and Kitty Kisses...in an edition we like to call "show me the money"...


Yes children, the games have begun and by that we mean campaigning for 2016...

So, we'd  like to start out with a little song that we think segues nicely into all that political gobbledygook! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkRIbUT6u7Q

First up some good news and a great big fuzzy hug...
we are going local this week with a Seattle high school student named Nick Rubin for creating Greenhouse http://allaregreen.us/  Ever wondered who is getting how much and who they are getting it from? Check out Nicks site...

Also a big old kitty kiss to efforts by the Democrats to un gerrymander a lot of the rigged districting put in place by mostly Republicans that have totally skewed the electoral process. Check out  Advantage 2020; http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/house-races/233181-dems-launch-super-pac-to-fight-for-redistricting-edge

Next we couldn't give a full blown kitty kiss to this one but we will bestow a small smooch to Walmart  for raising their minimum wage for many of their workers...it's a good start although we think it most likely came about due to protests and pressure from the media etc. Still, baby steps...

and...here come the sticky paws!

A big expensive sticky paw to Jeb Bush who is busy raising buckets of money nice and early in his campaign ...

But even with buckets of cash, Jeb hasn't got a clue it seems as to what he would do about foreign policy; http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2015/02/jebs-foreign-policy-problem/385648/


And here is a sticky paw (not his first) for former governor Rudy Giuliani...we are giving him the honor of being on our list of people who should never speak in public. Congratulations Mr. Giuliani you are now on the list along with the likes of Sarah Palin and Donald Trump. You're welcome! http://www.politico.com/story/2015/02/rudy-giuliani-president-obama-doesnt-love-america-115309.html

And last but certainly not least we leave you with something to make you smile. If you missed the 40th anniversary show celebrating Saturday Night Live, then you missed this...  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ojx_5n0VXZU



Have a great weekend!

  3. It's hard to fathom that Rudy Guiliani believes the words that escape his mouth.

    The SNl40 intro was awesome!

  7. The SNL special was pawsome! The mom says it brought back lots of good memories. She's watched SNL since the very beginning. That makes her pretty old, doesn't it?

  8. Great ones this week. My peeps always called him JERKiani. MOL! In fact, TW has the honor of called him an A__hole to his face and booing him when he passed her seat at Yankee Stadium one fine day in 2002. His security glared at her.
