My little man

By popular demand, it's Marcus.....

Click picture to enlarge.

Sitting in the fridge drinking. Like father, like son.

That's not a Halloween costume.Every night he becomes part frog and roams the neighborhood fighting crime.

There he is in paw paw's garden. Daddy's garden is much smaller and has a lamp. :)

In the last pic, I had just told him the Senate went to the Democrats. "Daddy, what's impeachment?"

Damn you, Sir! You've here exhibited an uncanny ability to thwart my aspirations to full-fledged Curmudgeonhood by compelling me to issue a resounding "Awww!" ;-)

World travelers fear coming to the United States more than any other country because of strict entry policies, according to a survey released Monday by a group representing the travel and tourism industry.

"The U.S. entry process has created a climate of fear and frustration that is turning away foreign business and leisure travelers from visiting the United States," said a survey released by the Discover America Partnership.

According to the survey of more than 2,000 people, 39 percent of travelers rate America's entry process as the "world's worst" and 64 percent say that U.S. immigration officials are "rude."

America Scarier Than the Middle East, Tourists Say

Read the rest, most of people visiting the US blame it on the US government. Even before 911, US customs officials were hard asses, so I can imagine it got only worse after 911 (strip searches to humiliate people and severe interrogations were already in place before 911 to ordinnary foreigners).

Oh this one is good too:

'Aliens could attack at any time' warns former MoD chief

During his time as head of the Ministry of Defence UFO project, Nick Pope was persuaded into believing that other lifeforms may visit Earth and, more specifically, Britain.

His concern is that "highly credible" sightings are simply dismissed.

And he complains that the project he once ran is now "virtually closed" down, leaving the country "wide open" to aliens.

Mr Pope decided to speak out about his worries after resigning from his post at the Directorate of Defence Security at the MoD this week.

"The consequences of getting this one wrong could be huge," he said.

"If you reported a UFO sighting now, I am absolutely sure that you would just get back a standard letter telling you not to worry. ''Frankly we are wide open - if something does not behave like a conventional aircraft now, it will be ignored.

"The X-Files have been closed down." If these words had come from a sci-fi fanatic, they could be easily dismissed by cynics.

Would that our own, demonstrably usurped, Democratic candidates of the past two fraudulent presidential races had exhibited a modicum of such laudable spunk and defiance in the face of fraud! Viva Lopez Obrador!: Defeated Leftist Declares Self 'Legitimate President' of Mexico [Agence France Presse] ==== A defeated leftist presidential candidate declared himself "legitimate president" of Mexico, vowing to fight the president-elect taking office in less than two weeks. ==== Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador donned a presidential sash in a symbolic swearing-in before tens of thousands of his supporters jammed into Mexico City's Zocalo plaza, who cheered as he held up two fingers in a "V" for victory. ... ==== Lopez Obrador called for "the start of construction of a new republic against a neo-fascist oligarchy" and announced the formation of a "parallel government" to "protect the rights of the people, the patrimony and the national sovereignty." ==== "It is an honor to be the legitimate president of Mexico," he said, wearing a replica of the green, white and red presidential sash. ==== "We will fight on for our ideals," he said. ... ==== [Hell, I'd be ectatic if even our indisputably victorious -- despite *significant* rigging against them -- Democratic Congress now *acted* like unquestionable victors.]

Re "America Scarier Than the Middle East, Tourists Say", Polu: I wouldn't want to visit Amerika nowadays, and I LIVE here! What does that tell us?? ==== Yes, "Everything changed after 9/11", but for the WORSE! Nevertheless, I'm proud to be a putative "Unlawful Enemy Combatant" -- i.e., a patriot who rightly despises the entrenched, Fascist Authoritarian status quo. "Give me liberty, or give me death!".

Before 911 I had experienced myself the custom checkpoint in different US airports and I can tell you that US customs officials behave like morons, especially if you start coming back and forth. I have also heard that lots of people had been strip searched so that they can be humiliated and to prevent them from going back to the US. And that was before 911. I presume things got even worse since 911.

More on the Sarasota Congressional vote fiasco involving *18,000* missing votes and a dubiously "certified", *astoundingly* marginal Republican "winner": Ballots Favored Dems [The Orlando Sentinel] ==== The group of nearly 18,000 voters that registered no choice in Sarasota's disputed congressional election solidly backed Democratic candidates in all five of Florida's statewide races, an Orlando Sentinel analysis of ballot data shows. ==== Among these voters, even the weakest Democrat - agriculture commissioner candidate Eric Copeland - outpaced a much-better-known Republican incumbent by 551 votes. ==== The trend, which continues up the ticket to the race for governor and US Senate, suggests that if votes were truly cast and lost - as Democrat Christine Jennings maintains - they were votes that likely cost her the congressional election. ... ==== About 15 percent of ballots cast on Sarasota's touch-screen machines registered no choice in the bitterly fought congressional race. That percentage was about six times greater than the undervote in the rest of the House district, which spreads into four other counties. ... ==== [And YET,] "Christine Jennings is once again allowing her own personal ambitions and the radical political agendas of liberal third-party groups to hijack the democratic process," GOP state Chairwoman Carole Jean Jordan said. "The votes have now been counted three times, once on Election Day and twice since then in state-mandated recounts; yet Christine Jennings will not step forward and do what is right for the voters of the 13th Congressional District, which is to concede." ... ==== [Well, now we KNOW the damn thing was rigged -- whenever *Republicans* feign "righteous indignation" and concurrently indulge so freely in clearly contrived character assassination, there's surely an underlying stench of corruption that's being covered up! As for 'hijacking the democratic process', it's fairly obvious in this case that "the smeller is the feller". Pot to kettle: "You're black!]

UT: Please forgive the abysmal pun I'm about to make, but I just can't resist. Regarding "strip searches" and "things getting worse", well, former CIA counterterrorism chief Cofer Black *did* say, "After 9/11, the gloves came off." [Euuuuuh!] %^{

back to Roberts "Little Man"...

looking at that small human making me feel such a warmth, truly making me forgive humankind (at least for the moment ;-) )...

maybe we should use the pictures of our children on our flags...

because that's the only reason we are fighting for, isn't it?

to be able to look into the eyes of our children and say: "i promise you the best world i can figure out"

Well, at least *somebody* in the world is quite happy about this illegal, immoral, and utterly fraudulent US war in Iraq. Too bad it's merely the head of the Zionist Branch of the NeoConNazi Party!: Iraq war was good for Israel: Olmert [Reuters] ==== The Iraq war was a boon for Israel's security, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said on Wednesday, voicing fresh endorsement for a Bush administration sapped by the unpopularity at home of its Middle East policies. ==== The mid-term election losses of U.S. President George W. Bush's Republican Party were widely considered a repudiation of his decision to topple Iraq's Saddam Hussein as part of a vision of democratizing the region and bolstering allies like Israel. ==== Olmert avoided explicit comment on the Republicans' fortunes during Washington talks with Bush earlier this month. But in a speech to visiting American Jews, Olmert made clear he had few regrets about the changes wrought by the 2003 invasion of Iraq. ... ==== And in case you're wondering what type of individual would actually *applaud* such senseless carnage: Israel orders killing of Hamas politicians ==== In a desperate attempt to stop the barrage of rockets fired by Hamas at Israeli villages, Ehud Olmert, Israel's prime minister, has ordered his security chiefs to target the Islamic movement's political leadership. ==== According to Israeli security sources, a decision to assassinate leading Hamas politicians was taken by Olmert and his defence minister, Amir Peretz. Early yesterday Israeli missiles struck Hamas targets in Gaza, including a charity run by the group. ...

lol - the one "uber-expert" for war applauding the other...

THIS Olmert, who thought, that high-tech-weapons would win a war quite alone, the one, who used the "mightest army" (at least in Middle East) to suppress a weak helpless nation??

the one, who failed miserably, who utterly disgraced himself and was watched by the whole world while his shiny weapons destroyed houses and maimed children - but not the resistance??

the one, who has now to listen to critics how he wasted money and life and how he damaged the image of the Superpower (at least in Middle East), therefore endangering the own people - because now, EVERYONE knows, that the Superpower can be defeated??

THIS Olmert?
