…but I was never that great in geography.  Maps like this help me understand the news.  An excellent source for this kind of information is here:

Do as we SAY! Not as we DO!

You know I believe Russia should not interfere with the internal politics of the Ukraine.  However, what angers me is the whining by Obama and Kerry about  Russian “interventionism.”


Here’s a partial list of the countries in which the United States has intervened in the last 50-years:

Korea, Puerto Rico, Iran, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Lebanon, Cuba, Panama, Laos, Vietnam, Chile, Oman, Cambodia, Angola, El Salvador, Grenada, Egypt, Honduras, Philippines, Panama, Indonesia, Liberia, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Macedonia, Columbia, Haiti, Somalia, Pakistan, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria.

Why is it OK that America intervenes in every other country’s internal affairs and it’s not OK when other countries do the same thing?

Anyone who knows me knows I like cats better than people. Honesty is big with cats. That’s why I know they burst out laughing when they hear commercials for the convoluted concoctions like you see above.

Looks good, doesn’t it? This one is Wild Salmon Primavera in a Classic Sauce with “garden” Veggies (as opposed, I guess, to those which are grown between the cracks of sidewalks). Ummm.

Advertisements for these “Elegant Medleys” say the selections are “restaurant inspired” – which is good news for those feline connoisseurs currently eating scraps out of restaurant dumpsters.

Unfortunately, few cats will be terribly enthusiastic about the new colors in the Medley menu. You see, cats can’t see many colors; in fact, some experts claim they can’t see ANY colors.

Texture? Cats are far-sighted and extremely sensitive to movement so they can hunt prey. Their extraordinary sense of smell is also a hunting tool. So a clump of stationary mush with different shapes, sizes, and colors – out of a metal can – isn’t much of a feline thrill no matter what fancy adjectives you slap on the label.

But if your cat is not properly thrilled over this culinary delight, perhaps you forgot to begin his meal with:

Try to do better next time.
