Monkey See, Monkey Do !

Racial opportunist "Podium Al" Sharpton was quick to attack the New York Post over a cartoon parody comparing the recent shooting death of Travis the chimpanzee to the Obama stimulus bill recently passed by Congress. Sharpton mumbled a short tirade addressing the cartoon as racist in nature and axed for an apology from the newspaper.

The New York Post has issued a statement defending its stimulus/chimp cartoon and slamming Rev. Al Sharpton for protesting the piece. In a statement by Col Allan, editor-in-chief of the Post, said, "The cartoon is a clear parody of a current news event, to wit, the shooting of a violent chimpanzee in Connecticut. It broadly mocks Washington's efforts to revive the economy. Again, Al Sharpton reveals himself as nothing more than a publicity opportunist."

Family members of Travis the chimpanzee were equally insulted and protested vigorously at being compared to Obama, Sharpton and the members of Congress involved with the Stimulus bill. Travis' family accused "Podium Al" of Darwinism and demanded an apology.

Travis' uncle, a monkey named Isle Beay and well known for his stand against Darwinism, felt that the New York Post went to far in comparing Travis' death to the Stimulus Bill, stating that Travis' death was, in fact, murder while the Stimulus Bill was obviously a Congressional self-inflicted suicide.

After criticizing automobile, bank and wall street executives of wasteful spending on unnecessary trips and junkets to Las Vegas and other locations, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, an Italian descendant and seven other democrats went on a trip to Italy, where she met with the president of Italy and had a private meeting with the Pope. The chartered executive jet that flew the democrats there cost tax payers $10,000 per hour and ran up a bill of $200,000. Hotel bills and other expenses, all paid by U.S. taxpayers, have yet to be presented.

Another group of six democrats, Martin Luther King III, Andrew Young and Herby Hancock went to India on the anniversary date of Martin Luther King Jr's trip there to study Gahndi. King III, who sold his father's papers for 32 million dollars, along with the six democrats and the rest of the group had their expenses paid for courtesy of U.S. taxpayers.

It's nice to see that change has arrived and the new government leaders seems to be saying "do as I say, not as I do."

This Date In History: 1807; Former US vice-president Aaron Burr is arrested and charged with plotting to create an independent republic. 1861; Russian tsar Alexander II emancipates the serfs. 1915; The Dardanelles is attacked by the navies of Britain and France, initiating the Gallipoli campaign. 1997; Chinese Communist leader Deng Xiaoping dies at age 92.

Picture Of The Day: What's wrong with this picture? We import foreign workers to replace American workers; We import poison Chinese products to replace American products; California has a 42 billion dollar deficit partly due to the fact that 40% of all workers in L.A. County ( L. A. County has 10.2 million people) are working for cash and not paying taxes; The national economy is going down the toilet due to greedy, unscrupulous mortgage lenders and poorly run banks.

All this and I have to worry about a crummy political cartoon that causes "Podium Al" Sharpton to go ballistic? Hey Al, I never was a slave nor did I own slaves and neither did you. Get Over It!

Birthdays: David Garrick, actor 1717, Stan Kenton, American jazz musician 1912, Lee Marvin, actor 1924, Smokey Robinson, American singer and songwriter 1940, Prince Andrew, second son of Elizabeth II 1960.

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) In my high school years, I worked for weeks trying to get a date with a beautiful blonde. While in the living room meeting jer parents, her Dad said, "Look, there's dog poop on the rug." I didn't even have to look..... 2) I have no tattoos or body piercings however I do have several scars from bite marks. 3) My first wife is Italian and my second wife is Cuban. My third wife is a figment of their imagination whose face is much younger than theirs and changes from time to time. 4) I was trained as a combat medic in the U.S. Army and served from 1966 to 1971. 5) I call every woman "Baby," not because I'm too cool, but because Old Timer's disease does not permit me to remember their names. When I do, it's usually wrong.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:

There are a lot of folks who can't understand how we came to have an oil shortage here in America. Well, there's a very simple answer. Nobody bothered to check the oil. We just didn't know we were getting low. The reason for that is purely geographical. All our oil is in Alaska, Texas, California, and Oklahoma. All our dipsticks are in Washington, DC.

One day George W. Bush and Dick Cheney walk into a diner. A waitress walks up to them and asks if she can take their order. Bush leans close to her and says, "Honey, can I have the quickie?" The waitress is appalled and yells at the President about women's rights and storms away. Cheney then says to Bush, "George, its pronounced 'quiche'."

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that our government can track a cow born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she sleeps in the state of Washington? Also they track her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. I think the solution is to give every illegal alien a cow.


That's it for today my little ducklings. Have a great and safe weekend and more on Monday.

Stay Tuned !

Also, our new President took Air Force One to several loactions this past week to sign his stimulous bill and other things. That little trip around North America cost us a bundle. The stuff he signed could have been taken care of in Washington DC, saving the tax payers tons of $$. And he wants change ?!? Linda in sunny Washington state

What did you think of your time spent in San Antonio in the service? I lived near the Missions. Not the greatest side of town but very rich in history.

Your entry reminds me how much I used to be scared of that sitcom on TV Planet of the Apes!! Eeek!

I also agree that it was suicide!


Claudia's thoughts said...

I see the problem is that people in "power positions" think they are better than the rest of us poor slobs. I think they honestly believe that.

Also a lot in the Congress think that we the people do not know what is best for us, so they will do what they think they KNOW is best for us.

The one CEO said it was a disgrace that the executives would not be able to get the million $$$ bonuses. Honestly, they say they won't be able to recruit executives. But, who would want to hire those screw ups???

I previously left a comment on Julie's blog mentioning Clarence B Jones,the attorney for MLK & his close personal friend. I like him because he is not totally RIGHT or LEFT but smart, and balanced on these issues, though he has a pretty strong dislike of Sharpton, but that is due to the Rev's actions.

Oh,another thing, Martin Luther King 3 is no MLK if you know what I mean.
