The wrongness of being right...





So, we went into watching this debate with very low expectations of it being significant in any meaningful way.
We figured both candidates would be on their best behavior each trying to be more likeable and acceptable than the other so that in the end they would cancel each other out and it would be nothing short of boring.

We were wrong.

And that brings me to exactly where I need to be...

Okay. I admit it, I have a problem with Donald Trump.
No, it's not political and it's not his stance on any particular issue nor is it the fact that he's a Republican ( which a lot of Republicans would argue he's not ).
It's not even his hair ( okay that was a cheap shot ).
No, my problem with Donald Trump is something much more basic.
I think I can best explain by telling you a little story about one of the humans fathers...

The man could never be wrong. Period!

About anything, EVER!

He'd sooner chew off his own leg rather than admit he'd made a mistake or was wrong.

It didn't need to be anything important, it could be some little inconsequential thing he'd heard or read
or just thought about.
But if you chose to contradict him he'd fight you to the death, never mind that in doing so he was so vehement that people got hurt, relationships were destroyed and friendships were all but lost in the destruction.
In the end he died alone and with very few tears being shed in his memory.

There is something to be said for being big enough to admit when you are wrong.
After all we all are from time to time usually more times than not.

But there are those individuals who for whatever reason, can't or won't just let it go.

And that is Donald Trumps biggest down fall.

And that is what, if you were watching objectively you witnessed on full display last night.

A man so obsessed with his own perception of himself, so intent on his own " self righteousness "
that he would rather defend the most petty untruth than ever admit he was mistaken no matter what the price he has to pay in the end.

Mrs. Clinton was able to just step back and watch her opponent implode on his own, all the while appearing congenial and presidential and very confident.
She communicated with intelligence and decisiveness and whether you agree with her politics or not
she was the only grownup on that stage.

So, there you have it, that's our humble opinion...and who knows, perhaps we're wrong.



Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Another Edition of Noodle's Fuzzy Hugs And Sticky Paws...





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 lady should 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!





Have a super weekend!

Remembrance...

We are re-posting our post from last year. It says pretty much what we feel today...

         
                                    a moment of silence...


video


While you are out and about today living your life we hope you will take a moment or two to reflect on the things you are grateful for...

Then we ask that you go one step further and preform just one
random act of kindness for someone you know well or someone you do not know at all.

We wish you a day filled with peace and comfort.




Humbly and with affection...

Wordy Wednesday...








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!

Hillary who?
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.


PS. Don't forget to watch the  Commander In Chief Forum  tonight on NBC and MSNBC.



Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Sunday Selfie with history lesson...






If you were thinking that politics has sunk to a new low lets take a trip back in time and learn all about the know-nothing party spoiler alert this is partially how the Republican Party came about.

Or you can watch this really great piece done by Rachel Maddow  know nothing movement that puts it in current perspective.


Have a super Sunday!
