                    A WORD OR TWO ON WEDNESDAY...

I find it ironic that in the week preceding the first visit by the Pope that these are the headlines we are seeing;

First there was Donald trump and the guy at his town hall meeting;

Then Sunday on Meet The Press, there was Ben Carson;

Of course with 1 in 3 Americans (not republicans...Americans!) believing still that the president is a Muslim I guess I shouldn't be surprised...

It seems odd to me that with the framers trying so hard to make sure that religion and politics were not intertwined that we have come to this point in our history where a lot of the people and politician's do not seem to understand the principals this country was actually founded upon.
 Instead it seems we have reached a point where individual interpretation is the only prerequisite to state your personal version of the facts...
I have always been fascinated by those who invoke God or Jesus  as justification for their own personal opinions and actions.

I don't believe any one religion is better than another or more legitimate or more American.
It seems to me that faith should be a comfort and not a weapon...

In case anyone is truly interested you can read what the constitution
actually says about the separation of church and state and religious freedom;  ( we put a link to the kid's version so it's really easy to understand )

Those are my words for Wednesday...
I thought they were important to put out there.

                           Some great videos for the weekend! 

We would like to take this opportunity to provide links to several really well done videos out there...
Politics aside and being the bipartisan site that we are here are four of the best we have seen in a long time.

The first is one put out by republican candidate Carly Fiorina  in response to Donald Trumps remarks on her face ( if you don't know about this check it out here; )
So...this was Fiorina's excellent response;

Next up this ad was put out by Priories USA invoking the spirit of Ronald Regan;

And finally, Mexico got a chance to blast Donald Trump on his immigration remarks in this ad for the Mexico vs. USA soccer match;

But lastly we would be remiss if we didn't include, just for fun, Jimmy Fallon as Donald Trump talking to Hillary Clinton;

PS. Hope these made you smile, get well soon Lenora...

Have a super weekend!

This Weeks Sticky Paws and Hairballs vs. Fuzzy Hugs and Kitty Kisses brings you the letter D... D is for diplomacy!

So I have been reading the papers and watching the news trying to figure out where I stand on this whole Iran Nuclear Deal thing...Personally if it keeps us from going into yet another war, I think it's a good idea to give it a try.
So a big Fuzzy Hug to John Kerry, the Prez and all those who made this possible.
Congress has voted as we come to you, so it seems this is a done deal. And now we could be looking at  one of the most significant diplomatic negotiations in our history.
No matter what your opinion on the subject, watch this video;
If you are not familiar with the components of the deal check this out;
Next up, a huge Kitty Kiss to our own VP! We love Joe Biden because he is the most candid and authentic guy around;  (better get out the Kleenex for this one)
Moving on, a big Sticky Paw to all the trash talk coming from The Donald! Seems there is no one he won't insult. "Hey you kiss your mother with that mouth?"
In  case you missed them here are 2 count them two videos of impersonations of The Donald. 
The first is President Obama calling Donald with tips for being on The Late Show;
The second is Donald preparing for his interview with Jimmy Fallon;

And last, a big Fuzzy Hug to rabbits...seems diplomacy isn't just for the humans. Even rabbits have disagreements;
Have a super weekend!

                                             "OH JEB!"

I know this is kind of an artsy photo of me but I just had to use it as I am caught here hanging my head in disbelief...
I know politics is a dog eat dog world,
but this is just...Oh Jeb!

Have a great weekend!

                                      Goodbye to August...

Yesterday was our last entry into August Break 2015. We decided to post a version of it here but with a different photo.
(You can check out the original by clicking on the red August Break square to the right)

                                                             August was...


hot and sunny and dry with flip-flops and tank tops and minimalist
make up.
It was sultry and playful and could not last.
A  flower that has gradually faded and dried now only a reminder of what was.
So, now we return to number 2 pencils and new notebooks. 
To heavier clothes, shoes and boots and warm coats.
To umbrellas dancing down the street.
To rain and wind and thicker stick to your ribs food.
To the turning of leaves from green to gold...
and the darkening of sky's much earlier in the day.
The lighting of lamps and setting back of clocks.
And the snuggling into fuzzy blankets at night.
And if you are very lucky the cat that was too hot in August, now cuddled up and purring in your ear as you drift off to sleep.
Hello September!
