Freday with Fred the Cat

I had to laugh a big cat laugh yesterday when most of the Republicans in the Senate voted against the war funding bill because they didn’t like the other things that were in it. Now they are all on record as voting to stop the money from going to the troops.

As soon as they come to some sort of agreement on the bill they will vote for it. Then they can say they voted against it before they voted for it. I guess they liked the term flip flop.

Gotta give it to the Democrats they built a better mouse trap and caught a whole lot of rats too.

Have a great weekend, friends
Fred the Cat

Hey Fred, you look marvalous today and your thinking ain't bad either

I can't remember who it was, but one Republican waxed indignant over the way the Democrats added extra provisions to the war-funding bill. As if the Republicans would never dream of doing such a horrible offensive nasty evil thing if they were in control of Congress. Mm-hmm, ho-kay. I hope that creature of Congress drinks plenty of water when making all those happy pills go down.

Those people are so hypocritical, petty, and brainless, it's a wonder they ever got elected in the first place...

But all that proves is that they are there for their own party and to destroy Republicans first, and to do the will of the people second. They were hired to stop the war and reverse the power grabs.

Then, Bush hauled all the Rethugs up to the White House to show they were unified. I could just hear Rove, "Haul their asses up here and make 'em stand out thar with ya, George." Did you see the Rethugs all standing out there looking mean and unhappy? I laughed.

All we say is, Stop the war!

Yep, those Republicans are funny creatures, they look almost human.

From a cat's point of view, I guess all humans are curious source of amusement that need to take more naps and quit taking life so seriously. Silly, silly creatures.

Do you realize Fred darling that only 3% of the population can find Iraq on the map but 97% have seen Britney Spears's twazzer!

Besides not caring about the environment and healthcare reform, He also voted against funding our troops in Iraq.

Fred, you are a smart cat. You could come play with me any time. I think the President and his friends are big fat liars.

I hadn't considered the flip-flop aspect here, fred. Very good call.

Flip-flopping is a long-standing political tradition. Whether it sticks or not is determined by the amount of teflon a politician has on their bodies. The most famous was Ronald Reagan, the teflon president. Have a great weekend and thanks for your posts. They're always interesting.

Right on Fred! Get the popcorn ready folks. He only has a few choices now. He can sign it, Veto it, or sign and do one of those signing statements and ignore congress and face the wrath. This just got funny!

I keep thinking. If say a friend came to me and said he wanted my money to get out of a bad situation....I might give him the money the first time...The next couple times around,I'd certainly expect him to tell me how he plans to get out of it.
Why should the President be held to a lower standard than that?

I'm afraid both sides have put on a great show for the press and the public. I have a feeling the only rats that were caught was people ones, as in voters.

You are so handsome, Fred. My, my.

I'd wonder if you'd ask your human friends to go to and sign up for their recall alerts, and ask their friends to do the same. Today, Hill's and Alpo have recalls humans need to know about, IMHO.

Love ya, Fred.

It's total Bullshit.

Repugs have no problem giving tens of billions to Halliburton.

But they cry like babies when Congress wants to help the Salmon Fishermen out in the Pacific Nothwest or the Citrus growers and peanut farmers.

God forbid we help ordinary working Americans. That mony can only go to corporations with strong ties to BushCo or else it's just "waste".

Fred, you are muy guapo! You look so much like my cat Simba, who died last summer. I hope you didn't have to see Karl Rove sashaying his lardy ass around in that video clip. It woulda inspired a big hairball for you...

Fred, old boy, you have a pair of gorgeous eyes which I didn't know exsisted. Since you were able to open them, maybe soon you might consider standing up? Never mind that, stay as you are, a lazy fat cat with the great mind! Be extra careful with your munchies!

Cool partisan trap perhaps, but where's the progress?

Fred the Cat, it's interesting you watch politics so closely. There are many people who don't, at all. I mention some politician name and they'll say, "Who's that?" ... but if you mention a rap group, or movie star, they know all about them.

Oooh.. You are so darned fluffy and cute, I want to reach through the computer and pet you.
