As you know, Mr. Defiant was a no-show yesterday on Capitol Hill, so I penned a poem in honor of a man who knows all the Bush skeletons personally:
There once was a cat from Iran
who got hot and turned on a fan
it wasn’t enough
to cool off his fluff
so atoms were split in Tehran.
He worked long and hard on the splits
while George threw incompetent fits
by acting so proud
no weapons allowed
or sanctions will come in a blitz.
So who gave the arms race it’s start?
who played the gargantuan part?
could take the world out
but that wouldn’t be very smart.
Be careful or you’ll find more spycats, political limericks and rhymeries, plus a few kitty cat photos at:
Here’s The Guardian on the EU’s new banking freeze of Iran’s assets:
After last evening’s phone call from an offspring, I suddenly discover that family (see photo) will be descending from out of town this evening. This is good news for us, not so good news for my blogging habit.
And yet there is a political poem just penned….an open poem to the next president, no matter who the globalists decide to install in the White House. They are, as we know, the Deciders–yet still I must ask:
In Politics it’s always good
to keep yourself misunderstood
campaign Atlantic to Pacific
just don’t be over specific
play your cards close to your chest
and don’t reveal your fondest quest
until you’re in then none can fuss
(it’s not as if you’re one of us)
so hold fast to your power dreams
ignore it when your nation screams
we’re undermined and oversold
and wonder where you’ve put our gold
In Politics it’s pocket-lining
power’s sun is always shining
White House turning shades of gray
so how much more is there to say
except will you be friend or foe?
Constituents would like to know.

Politics bring(s) the same old things
crooks and frauds with diamond rings
minions kept upon tight strings

~and from earlier today:
The prince paupers his people
their lands are taken away
so few speak truth to power
what more is there to say?

As I’ve flitted about the interweb this morning reading world opinions on yesterday’s historic win for…gasp!…a black man, it seems America has impressed most of our fellow earth dwellers with her powers of reinvention.
Except in Pakistan. There a man was found to plop the terrorist fly smack dab into the middle of the Obama ointment because of an answer given months ago to the question of the US acting alone within Pakistani borders if the intell warranted it.
Sullied Sovereignty! It’s such a thorny question and situation since it’s not as if the billions paid to Musharraf and friends has resulted in much action against the terroists living within Pakistan’s mountainous regions. Is someone supposing the billions might be cut off if there’s an Obama in the White House?
That Obama has “threatened” Pakistan even before becoming president so he’ll be “more dangerous than Bush” seems to be a tactical view designed to help McCain in November in similar fashion to threatening bin Laden tapes being released just before US elections. Will people fall for this manipulative jingoist claptrap again?
Osama bin Laden (if indeed he had anything to do with the timing of the tape releases–lets’ ask HoSec), retained the ones he needed to justify his jihadist campaign so that America would be sure to stay in the Middle East. Does Rove have to do EVERYthing around GOP headquarters? Sheesh, give the hair-challenged fellow a rest, why doncha?
Bush’s Second Verse: McCain Refrain
Keeping the “war on terror” going will seemingly justify at least some of the Bush Doctrine and Cheney’s shotgun-1% Gang mentality while continuing to fuel the tank of the new world government coffers as they march the world toward the abyss of totalitarian regimism.
And the pleas of the American people, while hithertofore disregarded on Capitol Hill after November 2006 and disenfranchised by a secret government ruled by the secret hand, are now apparently in play with Obama’s candidacy. Tiresomely, that McCain has Karl Rove and his minions behind him to undermine our wishes once again is a political given.
The American people have always much preferred Peace and have had to be lied into war several times through the years by larger-agenda’d presidents. Will Obama toe that line as well?
How could he not with the secret backing he’ll need to move into the Oval Office? And if a landslide vote can do it for him, he’ll be in danger if he fails to buckle under the pressure to change his enitre value system on behalf of the globalist plan for world domination.
Sadly, we’ve trusted our government in the past and this is what it’s come to. Lies and dirty dealings from the GOP–with Dem Party enabling–will continue to be on OUR agenda with McCain in the White House for sure, with Obama there…maybe not so much. And can you listen to McCain drone for four years?
Yet hope really does spring eternal in the human heart. It’s finding a beating heart in Washington that’s the problem.
Mr.A.Cat has sent me a fresh political limerick in honor of Obama’s win in Montana, so if you’re ready for a groan you’ll find it published here:
Wonder if it’s premature to send this bottle of bubbly bubbles to Barack Obama for today’s historic attainment?

Be careful what you wish for
you may just get it all
remember what your Mama said
pride comes before a fall.
