I was going to try to go for a lighter tone this week. You know a little fun video and some music...
And then there was a campus shooting a few blocks from where the human works; http://www.aol.com/article/2014/06/06/police-college-student-disarmed-seattle-gunman/20907863/?icid=maing-grid7%7Cmain5%7Cdl6%7Csec1_lnk2%26pLid%3D485033
The father of one of the victims remarked after the shooting in Santa Barbara that it appears these types of shootings are just something we have accepted in our society and was understandably upset that we don't appear to feel the need to do anything about it anymore. Look I'm just a cat and I say DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! So here is something you can do. You don't even need to get up out of your chair but if you do nothing else at least do this one thing; http://www.msnbc.com/ronan-farrow-daily/the-call-not-one-more#break click on the link and send a message to your congressman and I will give you this big kitty kiss badge for your blog...
(we will be adding sticky paw, hairball and fuzzy hug badges very soon)
AND...they are sooooo worried about the budget that they insist on giving more and more money to the Department of Defense even though they don't want or need it!
We haven't inducted anyone lately but here are our latest nominees to Noodle's Hypocrisy Hall of Shame;
the response to the release and exchange of our last Afghanistan prisoner of war. No matter what the circumstances under which Bowe Bergdahl was captured, the rhetoric that some are spewing is absolutely inappropriate and just plain nasty!
Only hours after posting welcome home and prayers and thanks, a number of members of congress took them back! Can you take prayers back? http://onpolitics.usatoday.com/2014/06/04/bowe-bergdahl-congress-tweets-delete/
And on that subject, another great big sticky paw to the whole " how could Obama release these terrible prisoners, now we will not be safe. He should be impeached"... I think perhaps they need to be reminded that under Bush and Cheney over 500 prisoners from Guantanamo were released and I don't think Bush was impeached...
I'm sensing a double standard here... http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/06/03/exbush-official-gwb-would_n_5441391.html
And now for some fun!

Best wishes Molly
Thanks Noodle for entertaining Mom. She loves Jimmy Fallon, Justin Timberlake, The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men. After that video she had to watch a couple others. We sent our postcard and have displayed your kitty kiss in our sidebar. We did not know you were in Santa Barbara. Our humans graduated from UCSB. When they lived in Isla Vista, the Bank of America was burnt down by protestors. Now they live 40 minutes from VA Tech, the place of another terrible student massacre. We purr and pray that the postcards have some kind of impact. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calsta JoReplyDelete
Check out our updated badge and there are more coming!Delete
Such a terrible thing to happen anywhere, the school shooting. Glad he was subdued before he was able to kill any more. :(ReplyDelete
