      It's funny how we determine what gifts to get each other, even with all the hints we give each other.
      If you ask for money from everyone in order to to buy something really expensive, you will not get enough.
      If you ask for something expensive, you will not get it.
      If you ask for many little things, you will get a few.
      If you ask for nothing, you will get underwear.
      If you ask for everything, you will get shirts and pants you didn't ask for.

      So ya now what we should ask for? A good meal and a reason to get together.
      Happy Holidays from the local cat.

      Here is an update on the next Gen LOLCats.

      atlus00164d0eaf0a6a020.jpg

      Avery (right) Is Five, in Kindergarten, and refuses to be silent. Stands about 3'7'' and about 47lbs. He found my Beast Wars DVD's and loves them now. He also likes Transformers: Energon, even though I realy don't. But he is following in his daddies footsteps.

      Carson (left) is Two. Not really talking good yet. But he can do almost anything he wants. Stands about 3''2 and about 40 lbs. Ironically, he is as tall as his brother was when he was four. He loves Cars (the toys), Chip and Dale: Rescue Rangers, and Phineas and Ferb.

      All in all, I have to say that they both have made my proud to be a parent. But I wonder, who they would do with a sister...........................if only my wife wanted that now..........

      Growing up in rural US, I came to understand a few things about speaking out. 1: proof, you better have it. 2: If you discredit a bigger guy, he will pound you into the dirt. 3: Convince others your right, regardless of the truth in the matter, and you can make a stand against the bigger guy.

      Has the cat been in the Cat Nip again?

      Fair question. But no. I try to avoid most news articles that have nothing to do with me or my community. Due to the fact that main stream media is over ran with crap. I care very little about a person's sexuality until they become an icon for that sexuality that might influence my kids.
      Now to my point, Julian Assange. Some might now about his famous site for causing political unrest, Wikileaks
      People have rallied to his is aid and even preformed cyber attacks on financial sites that choose to drop support after Julian released documents regarding the US and Iraq. He is now under arrest in London and awaiting extradition to Sweden. I would normally post a like to the story, but there are too many, just Google it if interested.

      Now I have two cases to speak on in this. 1: Cyber War, 2: Julian Assange arrest.

      1: Cyber War
      If any reading this took part in the attacks against PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, and Amazon I would personally like to slap you. What you have done is officially launched a real attack that will result in Internet restrictions. You attacked multi-billion dollar organizations, and you hurt them in one place they will retaliate from; the pocketbook. By attacking them directly, you have also justified ANY retaliation they decide. So while some of you super hackers might be safe, the others will not be so lucky. It might take time, but they will find you.
      I will not say that speaking out against an injustice is bad, but launching an all out assault will eventually be listed under the term Cyber Terrorism. As no contracts where violated and Wikileaks was supported by donations only and the businesses always had the right to pull support at any moment. Exercising that right is fine, in bad taste maybe, but right none the less. So the lot of people involved in the attacks just committed crimes by willfully disrupting operations and possible corruptions to these organizations.

      2 Julian Assange's arrest.
      He is not charged with with anything regarding the site or documents released on it. He is accused of rape and sexual assault on two women. Now, could this be a clever fraud by the US to punish him for the release of documentation making the States look bad? Yes. Could this be a justified crime that has only now been brought to light due to additional pressure he brought on himself because of the release of said document? Yes.
      I support being upset about this, but keep things in context. IF he did what he is accused of, don't you think he should be punished for those actions? I do. I admit the timing does look fishy. But, as I said, he might have just put a little too much focus on himself. Now the skeletons in the closet have some out to rip him a new one. Also, as Sweden has remain neutral on almost every political situation regarding the US, it should be noted that they are the ones doing the accusing.

      Now why the fuss? We thought you didn't like this stuff.

      I don't like this. But thought that, as an American, I should say something on the matter.

      But this has nothing to do with the documents about American solders shooting down Arabic's

      I can't say any of it shocked me. Solders enjoying what the do is really a good thing, those remain loyal. I also hope anyone making these accusations hates FPS's. Because if you don't, then you are no better. These men and women are in hostel environments, being shot at, sending friends home in duffel bags, eating stuff that we consider "poor food", and we have issues with them enjoying their job? Plus, Iraq has NEVER been quiet about what goes on there.
      The US has a very bad world image, most know that. But I recall almost every county saying we have a bad image calling us for help at one time or another. Offering financial, military, or any other support we could do at the time. Even at the cost of harming ourselves. Then the US got hurt, and called for help. Who came?

      Still waiting........

      That's right, no one. Now you yell, kick, and scream because we took action rather then wait around any longer for aid that would never appear. Have we suffered for that, yes. Was if a good call, no. But we required help to do anything else, and nothing ever came of that. To do nothing was to admit defeat.

      Now, is America perfect? NO. Do we do some shady things? YES. Do some people in the government do things only to better themselves at the expense of the larger population? YES.
      Will this get any better? Not anytime soon

      O well. Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one.

      Some might have noticed that I have not been that active around here recently. (Like for the past 6 months.)
      There have been many reasons for this, so I thought I would share them for those concerned.
      1: I Haz kid in school. 27 years old and I have a kindergartner...........o my.
      2: Got into Guild Wars. I hang my head in shame.........I am a MMORPG junkie now.
      3: Social networking burnout. Just not doing much with them right now.
      4. Depressed. Life has been dealing me some BAD hands. Getting through them, but it's hard on me.
      5: Wife. Been investing more time in developing our relationship. August made 6 years for us married, 8 together.

      I'm still around. Just popping in and out. Answering any messages that come to me (email alerted). Been spending a lot of time on GameTrailers, Screwattack, and The Escapist.

      If you give a dang about video games, you must watch this. The Supreme Court of the USA is hearing a case regulating the sale of video games

      Free Speech

      You might be thinking that regulating the sale of video games to minors is not a big deal, but it is so much more. This bill would just be the beginning. The government is attempting to say that it's people are so stupid that they should not be allowed to decide what their kids play. That's right parents, this bill states that you don't know what is good for your kids. So they should decide what is best for YOUR kids. This sound a little too Big Brother for you? Me too.

      Drafting Guys Over 60

      This is funny &
      obviously written by a Former Soldier...

      New Direction for any war:

      Send Service Vets over 60!

      I am over 60 and the Armed Forces thinks I'm too old to track down terrorists.
      You can't be older than 42 to join the military. They've got the whole thing ass-backwards.
      Instead of sending 18-year olds off to fight, they ought to take us old guys. You
      shouldn't be able to join a military unit until you're at least 35.

      For starters, researchers say 18-year-olds think about sex every 10 seconds.
      Old guys only think about sex a couple of times a day, leaving us more than 28,000
      additional seconds per day to concentrate on the enemy.

      Young guys haven't lived long enough to be cranky, and a cranky soldier is
      a dangerous soldier. 'My back hurts! I can't sleep, I'm tired and hungry.' We are
      impatient and maybe letting us kill some asshole that desperately deserves it will
      make us feel better and shut us up for awhile.

      An 18-year-old doesn't even like to get up before 10am. Old guys always
      get up early to pee, so what the hell.. Besides, like I said, I'm tired and can't
      sleep and since I'm already up, I may as well be up killing some fanatical son-of-a-bitch.


      If captured we couldn't
      spill the beans because we'd forget where we put them. In fact, name, rank, and
      serial number would be a real brainteaser.

      Boot camp would be easier for old guys.. We're used to getting screamed and yelled
      at and we're used to soft food. We've also developed an appreciation for guns. We've
      been using them for years as an excuse to get out of the house, away from the screaming
      and yelling.


      They could lighten
      up on the obstacle course however. I've been in combat and never saw a single 20-foot
      wall with rope hanging over the side, nor did I ever do any pushups after completing
      basic training.

      Actually, the running part is kind of a waste of energy, too. I've never seen
      anyone outrun a bullet.

      An 18-year-old has the whole world ahead of him. He's still learning to shave,
      to start a conversation with a pretty girl. He still hasn't figured out that
      a baseball cap has a brim to shade his eyes, not the back of his head, or that pants
      are supposed to be around the hips, not the knees

      These are all great reasons to keep our kids at home to learn a little more
      about life before sending them off into harm's way.

      Let us old guys track down those dirty rotten coward terrorists. The last thing
      an enemy would want to see is a couple million pissed off old farts with attitudes
      and automatic weapons, who know that their best years are already behind them.

      HEY!! How about recruiting Women over 50...in menopause!!! You think MEN
      have attitudes??

      Ohhhhhhhhhhhh my God!!!
      If nothing else, put them on border patrol. They'll have it secured the first night!




      Send this to all of
      your senior friends...it's in big type so they can read it.

      1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

      2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

      3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

      4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

      5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

      6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

      7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

      8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

      9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

      10. Bad decisions make good stories.

      11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just
      aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

      12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again. (I haven't got to Blue Ray yet!!!)

      13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

      14. "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this - ever.

      15. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Damn it!), but when I immediately call
      back, it rings nine times and goes to voice mail. What did you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?

      16. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

      17. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

      18. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

      with Miller Lite than Kay.

      20. I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

      21. Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the heck was going on when I first saw it.

      22. I would rather try to carry 10 over-loaded plastic bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

      23. The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a text.

      24. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

      25. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?

      26. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

      27. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

      28. Is it just me or do high school kids get dumber & dumber every year?

      29. There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

      30. As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate bicyclists.

      31. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

      32. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet my ass everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!

      I laughed and thought others should too.
