Puzzle — 4:21 I lingered too long on the previous posie, but it was so sweet!

MoveOn — I have now seen several clips of Soledad O'Brien and agree she is a tenacious pitbull! On the other hand, this Nevada representative is a dog chasing his own tail, going around and around in circles. I just don't remember, but was there this much BS from the Democrats when there were no WMDs found in Iraq, or is one of those Republican/Teabagger things? I somehow think the latter! It also makes me wonder if Mr Obama had been white, would there be as much bullshit. I somehow doubt it.

NY Times — Blast! 2010 elections, US or Brit nevermind, were a real boon to the conservative movement, and they have both been found lacking, mired in controversy and possible political corruption. I think that anything involving Rupert Murdoch should be investigated extensively. Where there is smoke, there is usually a whole lot of fire!

Alternet — "textbook example of Vulture Capitalism" is an understatement. The ethically challenged management team is not a management team. It is a MISMANAGEMENT team, and what's worse, it is blaming the unions and workers for the mismanagement — its own follies. Power and greed corrupt absolutely, and absolute power and greed corrupt absolutely.

Cartoon — Tricky Dickie again! What a vile little man and a big criminal.

God bless you dear TomCat for feeding those in your building who are not able to have a Thanksgiving dinner - you put Christ's words into action, and I admire you greatly for it! I hope you all have a wonderful time!

Oh, how I love watching Soledad O'Brien – and I completely agree with her Condaleeza (sp?) Rice's actions are far more open to scrutiny than Susan Rice's ever were! (Two Rices – is that right?!).

"The Crown Prosecution Service identified the onetime aides as Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson, both of whom have had close personal or professional ties to Prime Minister David Cameron. Mr. Cameron hired Mr. Coulson as his director of communications while in opposition and kept him on after coming to power in the 2010 elections.

The Tories appear to be in bed with Murdoch’s criminal activities, as I’m sure Republicans are here. We need more investigation on this side of the pond."

That is something most odd and very dubious about Cameron and Brooks and Coulson – yet Cameron appears to be getting away with it without many questions being asked – and we want questions asked and answered! I couldn't believe it when he snowed some voters with his 'ordinary man' routine of cycling to work (followed by a HUGE car!) and when he and Samantha pretend to be poor – they are BOTH multi-millionaires! ARGH!!!
