The Social Poets: Libya War: Funny Late Nite Jokes Roundup

The Social Poets: Libya War: Funny Late Nite Jokes Roundup: "Check out what the comedians lampoon about The Peace President, Obama, going into Libya. Boy, I tell ya, a guy tries to help out some desperate people in a foreign country from getting slaughtered and all he gets is flak from the Republicans and comedians.

Of course, like so many sticky political situations, it's all about The Ego. The mostly male media ratchets up The Ego Meter by declaring Prez Obama is a wimp if he doesn't succeed at deposing Gadafi now that he's declared, 'Gadafi must go!' So, suddenly out come The Big Guns: the CIA operatives magicly appear in Libya 'advising' the rebel forces. Read that as, 'These guys are so clueless the only way to keep them alive is knock some sense into them and show them how to win.'"

Visual Insights: Dennys Photo Gallery: Winter Ice and Snow

Visual Insights: Dennys Photo Gallery: Winter Ice and Snow: "Here I am in the middle of a Spring pollen blizzard with 85 degree weather posting winter snow and ice photography. Uh, the rest of the nation may not be south Louisiana like where I live. In fact, here it is late March and parts of America are still experiencing snow storms and icy driving conditions. The month of March this year of 2011 refuses to go out like a lamb but rather prefers to be a drama queen and exit like a lion!

Just think, you can revisit this post come July when the weather is sweltering and you are fondly remembering cold weather as something wonderful. Enjoy my visual vacation where I rest from writing by combing through Flickr looking for interesting photos to fit a theme. You get to see some new photography talent and lovely images along the way. I try to feature and promote photographers, both amateur and professional, from all over the world. I'm an equal opportunity photo junkie..."

The Social Poets: Libya: Gadafi Regime Cracking Under Pressure Says Intel


The Social Poets: Libya: Gadafi Regime Cracking Under Pressure Says Intel: " The intelligence community is reporting 'the morale of Gadhafi forces is on the decline,' according to one official. 'Do ya think?' Your morale would be on the decline after witnessing coalition bombings taking out whole regiments of troops along with bombing cities. It's a lot different when the horror you once inflicted upon others becomes your own blood and guts horror.

Sounds like America's intelligence community so owes me a paycheck. :) They have finally come to the same conclusion as I have that The Gadafi Crowd can't handle the international heat and fear the massing crowds of Libyans who hate him."

Dennys Global Politics: Peoples Revolution Recaptures Port Cities: Libya Political Cartoons: "Since the U.S. and the minority coalition established the No-Fly Zone over Libya last week, the rebels have fared better. To gain control over the skies, it was necessary to destroy Gadafi compounds, tanks, anti-aircraft batteries, weapons dumps and whole regiments of troops on the move. In short, America, the British and the French decimated most of the Gadafi regime.

At present, the rebels have marched along the coastal cities, taking back ownership after Gadafi drove them out with aerial bombings and tank bombardments. Turn about was fair play and Gadafi's troops got a taste of the horror they inflicted upon others, now visited upon themselves."

The Social Poets: Japan: We Are Far Beyond Level 5 Nuclear Threat

The Social Poets: Japan: We Are Far Beyond Level 5 Nuclear Threat: "Today it was finally acknowledged the radiation is now 10,000,000 times safety levels.

New reports stream in about how TEPCO did not do safety inspections over many years.  Today another blow to their credibility:"

The Social Poets: Japan: Probable Breach, Time to Kill The Reactors, Cartoons

Plutonium Polycubes
From Denny:  The past two weeks I've spent a lot of time praying for the people caught up in this nuclear mess in Japan.  Pray with me that more will decide to leave the country and quickly.  The situation is far more serious than officials wish to tell.  Millions of people will die soon from this plutonium nuclear explosion. The rush is on to evacuate a few hundred thousand if we can.  Already two weeks of time have been squandered for evacuation. If you know anyone in Japan, call, email them to get out and get out now.  If you know charities, call them to start accepting refugees throughout the world.  This country is in serious peril.

The Social Poets: Japan: Probable Breach, Time to Kill The Reactors, Cartoons: "As engineers scramble to discover the details of what is happening inside the most dangerous reactor, number three, the one containing plutonium, the politicians scramble their message and the truth of information.

This week the Japanese decided to change the standard of what the plant workers are exposed to when they discovered it was 250 times the acknowledged international standard. Leave it to the dogma crowd to downplay the severity of this situation by declaring 'new standards' of radiation levels so that the plant workers are only exposed to 2.5 times their new standard."

Sometimes, I think if I didn't do posts roundup on all these crazy blogs I would never realize just how much I've been writing or on what subjects as the writing moves so quickly. The news is running at a rapid rate these days with all the revolutions in the Middle East and destructive world weather.

Fortunately, we have the comedians and the chefs to perk up our spirits and tantalize our taste buds so we don't get overwhelmed with too much negativity in the news and our politics."

The Social Poets: Obama: End Libya War Now and 14 Political Cartoons: "While America's war hawks and profiteers are thrilled to have spent $1 billion this week bombing Libya, it's time to complete The Hand Over to anyone else but us. Americans did not expect to be the country spending 95 percent of the money in this police action and we are not happy about it. American taxpayers are fed up with footing the bill for everything all the time and for far too long. We spend decades in idiot unnecessary expensive wars started by previous presidents, then start 'police actions' in a current administration."

Visual Insights: Dennys Photo Gallery: 2011 Super Moon World Photos: "Yes, I've been on one of my visual vacations, tripping through the Flickr database for cool Super Moon photos. All of these photos were taken on 19 March 2011 for this year's Super Moon event all over the world. Usually, a Super Moon occurs about every 20 years. We are expecting another one in 2016. One photographer created a short video of his various shots and paired a great jazz love song with it. Enjoy these visual treats!"

Super Moon: Symbolic Spiritual Meaning


Moon Photo from starryskies.com

From Denny: There is a legend that goes along with the Super Moon event where earthquakes, volcanoes erupting and general human mayhem happens. Astrologer Richard Noelle put forth that idea about 30 years ago. Most scientists disagree with him. But then astrology is part science and part spiritual. Science is just analytical "touch me but don't emotionally feel me" investigation determined only by what you can physically prove.

The Super Moon happens about every 20 years as the moon comes closer to Earth in its elliptical, egg-shaped, orbit. It does exert a bit more gravitational pull and it's debatable as to whether it influences weather and people.

Symbolism

What the Moon represents on a spiritual level is our instinct. The Super Moon is considered special in spiritual belief systems. Why? This Super Moon is happening in the constellation Virgo and together they speak to a need for healing by breaking through. It's the kind of dramatic healing where you feel like you had a breakdown as it was so much effort to get to that healing.

The Soul Calendar: Super Moon Phenomenon: Gorgeous Illusion Worth Watching: "The moon has not appeared this large since 1992. This huge moon appears because the moon is closer to the Earth than usual in its elliptical orbit. "

The Social Poets: Japan: Thousands Flee From Terror of Deteriorating Nuclear Situation

The Social Poets: Japan: Thousands Flee From Terror of Deteriorating Nuclear Situation: "As many countries increasingly do not trust what the Japanese government is telling them, a number began ordering their citizens out of the country. At the very least they are advising people to move far south of the nuclear plant site in trouble."

What Value Do We Place On Alone Time?

Mother and newborn with umbilical cord still a...Mother and child after a water birth and cord still attached Image via Wikipedia

From Denny:  Do we place enough value on our time spent alone with only our own thoughts?  Too often we are reluctant to pull back from daily duties, the wishes of others that try to influence us in our daily lives.

Do we value our own thoughts above those around us?  The only way to find out is to spend regular times of solitude to listen to our inner thoughts.  It is a quieting time, as refreshing for our emotions as it is for our mind.

Carve out some regular time every day, if only for five minutes, to seek your own thoughts.  You will be surprised at how suddenly problems in your life become easier to solve.  Your understanding of the issues in your life grow.  You become adept at leaping over issues that previously held you back, often stuck for years.  Value your alone time as much as you value yourself.  You are both precious!

Quote

* When we cannot bear to be alone, it means we do not properly value the only companion we will have from birth to death - ourselves. - Eda LeShan

Dennys Art Sanctuary: 38 Creative March Desktop Wallpapers

Dennys Art Sanctuary: 38 Creative March Desktop Wallpapers: "What do we think of when we reflect upon the month of March? We think of Winter ending, Spring coming in on the cool winds, soaking Spring rains, the trees leafing out and green weeds. There is the fun celebration of St. Patrick's Day. And there is the old adage, 'March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.' These designers took these all as their inspirations."
