Enjoy the 18 photos of artists painting graffiti, portraits, sidewalks, recycling egg cartons as fine art, doodling on department store windows, making music, you name it. All great fun and immense creativity."

Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Relationship Issues Cartoons, Remember Your Special People Memorial Day

Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Relationship Issues Cartoons, Remember Your Special People Memorial Day: "From Denny: These cartoons will really get you thinking about your current - or, uh, er, past relationships. It sure takes all kinds to make the world go 'round, doesn't it? A little light humor based off reality is just the ticket for a way to ease into a long holiday weekend...

Strange Brew

Have a great Memorial Day holiday, chill out to shed yourself of some stress, enjoying some time with family and friends. Be sure to lift your glass to toast those who came before us, sacrificing their lives for our freedom during war time or those who sacrificed as good friends to help keep us balanced in the mundane places of life. Take time to remember the best people in your life and celebrate them this special holiday."

The Social Poets: Time To Fire Atty Gen. Eric Holder: Outrageous Changing The Law to Prosecute Edwards

Eric Holder, Attorney General - is it really Justice?

The Social Poets: Time To Fire Atty Gen. Eric Holder: Outrageous Changing The Law to Prosecute Edwards: "From Denny: Incompetent - and a player of dirty revenge politics - Attorney General Eric Holder, decided of his own volition to change the law, untested in court and no precedent, to prosecute Senator John Edwards. Last time I checked it was Congress that is in charge of making the laws - not the Attorney General.

Why? Try for one thing that it was John Edwards that was the first pick for Holder's job until news of the Edwards' affair broke publicly. Edwards had told his wife two years before the news became public.

Another reason for this ugly ludicrous tactic is that Holder is in a weakened political state after botching several high profile prosecutions. He is desperate to prove to President Obama he should be able to stay on for another four year term.

When an incompetent guy is willing to fight this hard to hold onto his job that's a red flag you know it's time to fire him. What kind of public servant forgets he is a public servant - and pulls a stunt like this in an election year - that blows back onto his boss seeking reelection?"

The Social Poets: Obama, Team Obama Unfairly Piling On: Prosecutes Populist John Edwards

NC Senator John Edwards, wife Elizabeth on left, 3 children

The Social Poets: Obama, Team Obama Unfairly Piling On: Prosecutes Populist John Edwards: "From Denny:  In a politically motivated desperation move Obama has ordered the Dept. of Justice to go ahead and prosecute populist former Senator John Edwards when they could have settled this out of court.. This is an outrage and a complete waste of taxpayer monies.

Obama desperate to win in 2012 and fears other Democrats could challenge him

What is really going on here? Well, for one Obama is running scared politically since his poll numbers are sagging miserably. He and Team Obama desperately fear a front runner dark horse could appear out of nowhere to grab the Democratic nomination away from Obama. Clearly, they - Axelrod and Plouffe - believe the one possible dark horse with the personal fortune to do it is John Edwards."

Poems From A Spiritual Heart: Levels

earthquake japan

Poems From A Spiritual Heart: Levels: "A poem inspired from the devastating earthquake in Japan. It speaks to how all of us can experience earth-shattering moments, internally or externally, and learn to begin again."

The Social Poets: Cartoons: Obamas Israel Peace Speech, Register Your Solution to Middle East Peace

Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu and President Obama

The Social Poets: Cartoons: Obamas Israel Peace Speech, Register Your Solution to Middle East Peace: "From Denny:  Sagging poll numbers for President Obama has sent him off in the direction most presidents run trying to grab some greatness, this time in the form of the famous Middle East Peace talks. This week Obama kept to the usual American rhetoric of 'so, give back the land you took in 1967' strategy that the past three presidents have also tried to sell to no avail.

In case you were not alive in 1967 - or watching the news the past 30 years or maybe living under a rock - Israel did a huge land grab in 1967, taking the Sinai peninsula, the Golan Heights and the West Bank.  To make peace with Egypt they gave back the Sinai."

The Social Poets: How Do Mothers Fare Around The World?

The Social Poets: How Do Mothers Fare Around The World?: "rom Denny: The recent Mother's Day celebration does make us wonder how other women fare in the rest of the world. The organization, 'Save The Children,' conducted a study and ranked the best - and the worst places - in the world to be a mother.

They ranked child and maternal mortality, health care, and education. The disparities were glaring:

Women who die from pregnancy-related causes:

Afghanistan: 1 in 11 women die
Norway: only 1 in 7,600 die

The bottom worst countries ranked:

Children that die before the age of five: 1 out of every 6 children
Women who die of pregnancy-related causes: 1 out of 30 women die
A skilled attendant at birth: fewer than 50 percent
Children who suffer from malnutrition: 1 out of 3 children

How well did America fare in the study? Not that well. We were ranked at 31 out of the 43 developed countries. Considering the state of our expensive health care system and wages driven down to the point people have dropped their health care insurance it's no surprise."

Mothers Day Quotes: Rose Kennedy



From Denny: When you are looking for inspiration in tough times and wondering how to get through the trials of being a mother, look no further than to Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy. Her life often played out like an intense soap opera. She experienced the deaths of several of her children before their time, of which two were political assassinations. She lost her first son to war. Her husband cheated on her and yet she remained committed to the marriage.

Rose Kennedy was one tough lady you could not help but admire. She looked at her children as powerhouses that would influence others and change the world. And change the world they did. One even became president: John F. Kennedy.

The Social Poets: Dead: Osama Bin Laden, Time To Stop Iraq-Afghan Wars


The Social Poets: Dead: Osama Bin Laden, Time To Stop Iraq-Afghan Wars: "From Denny: Justice came swiftly this weekend, dished out from American Special Forces in a deadly fire fight, unleashed by President Obama to kill decades-long terrorist Osama Bin Laden. The mastermind of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001 was found living in the lap of luxury in a large mansion in the affluent suburb of Abbottabad, about 30 miles outside of Islamabad, Pakistan. As it was, in the 40 minute fire fight, it was believed he used one of his wives as a human shield as he fired upon the assault team.

Terrorist cult leader turned world pariah

Like the typical cult leader he preached sacrifice and frugal living to his dewy-eyed followers yet enjoyed a lavish life style for himself, his family and closest followers."
