Obama's failure to take control of the BP catastrophe has all the news media making comments about the government's failure to respond and take charge. James Carville, the famously outspoken Louisiana Democrat who was a chief political aide to Bill and Hillary Clinton, told CNN's Anderson Cooper that the administration's response to the spill has been "lackadaisical" and that Obama was "naive" to trust BP to manage the massive clean-up effort.
On another note, President Obozo reportedly is sending 1,200 National Guard troops the Mexican border to help secure the Southwest Border against Mexican drug cartels. It's funny how he thinks that 1,200 troops will stop the massive drug cartel's vast ways to smuggle drugs, but then again, he also seems to think the Arizona's border policy is funny as well.

Picture Of The Day: It's been a hectic day so far and my pictures are an eclectic display of how this day's news has affected me. The picture of the day is the giant cactus at the Arizona border. I am in agreement with the Arizona law and the picture depicts my feelings about the matter to a tee! I also discovered a couple of nice photoshop pictures of two women. I liked them quite a bit, so I thought I'd show them to you. Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) I never knew what happiness was until I got married and then it was too late! 2) You may have a heart of gold, but so does a hard-boiled egg. 3) I told my psychiatrist that everyone hates me.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar and Grill: Two old guys, Abe and Sol, sitting on a bench in a park feeding pigeons and talking about baseball, just like they did every day. Abe turns to Sol and says, "Do you think there's baseball in heaven?" Soloman thinks about it for a minute and replies, "I dunno, Abe. But let's make a deal. If I die first, I will come back and tell you, and if you die first, you come back and tell me, if there is baseball in heaven." They shake on it and, sadly, a few months later poor Abe passes on.
One day soon afterward, Sol is sitting there feeding the pigeons by himself when he hears a voice whisper, "Sol... Sol...." Sol responds, "Abe! Is that you?" The spirit of Abe whispers, "Yes it is." Sol, still amazed, asks, "So, is there baseball in heaven?" Abe says, "Well, I got good news and I got bad news." Sol says, "Gimme the good news first." Abe says, "Well... there is baseball in heaven." Sol says, "That's great! What news could be bad enough to ruin that?" Abe sighs and whispers, "You're pitching on Friday." The Hits Just Keep On Coming: My thanks to my pals Garnett and Victor for their contributions to today's stories.
Four married guys go golfing. During the 4th hole the first guy said, "You have no idea what I had to do to be able to come out golfing this weekend. I had to promise my wife that I will paint every room in the house next weekend." The second guy said, "That's nothing, I had to promise my wife that I will build her a new deck for the pool." The third guy said, "Man, you both have it easy! I had to promise my wife that I will remodel the kitchen for her."
They continue to play the hole when they realized that the fourth guy has not said a word. So they ask him, "You haven't said anything about what you had to do to be able to come golfing this weekend. What's the deal?" The fourth guy says, "I just set my alarm for 5:30a.m. When it went off, I shut off my alarm, gave the wife a nudge and said, "Golf Course or Intercourse?' She said, "Wear your sweater."
A guy out on the golf course takes a high speed ball right in the crotch. Writhing in agony, he falls to the ground. As soon as he could manage, he took himself to the doctor. He said "How bad is it doc? I'm going on my honeymoon next week and my fiance is still a virgin - in every way." The doctor told him, "I'll have to put your willie in a splint to let it heal and keep it straight. It should be okay next week." He took four tongue depressors and formed a neat little 4 sided splint, and taped it all together.
The guy mentions none of this to his girl, marries her, and goes on their honeymoon. That night in the motel room, she rips open her blouse to reveal her beautiful breasts. She said, "You're the first! No one has ever touched these." He immediately drops his pants and replies, "Look at this, still in the crate!"
A man and his friend were enjoying deer hunting season in rural Arkansas near a blacktop highway. A huge buck walked by and the hunter carefully drew his bow and took careful aim. Before he could release his arrow, his friend pointed at a funeral procession passing on the road below their stand. The hunter slowly let off the pressure on his bow, took off his hat, bowed his head and closed his eyes in prayer.
His friend was amazed. "Wow, that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen. You are the kindest man I have ever known." The hunter shrugged. "Yeah, well, we were married for 35 years."
