Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!

Bye-bye 2011.  You won’t be missed.

As for 2012?  Let’s buckle-up and hold on to each other.  It’s going to be a rough year economically, environmentally and politically.

Rest up.

Let’s See Near-Naked Men in 2012

Insofar as photos like this

are ubiquitous, come 2012, I want to see photos like this everywhere I look too:

All or none.

Enough of this:

Come on men.  Show how big or small or toned (or not) you are.

Need Botox?  Got Botox?  Dye your hair?  Need a Brazilian?  Got one?  On a diet?  Excercise?  No?  Why not?  Got fat?  Why can’t you lose it?  Eat too much? What’s your problem?  No self-control?  Let me see your nails. What!  No pedicure?  You’re letting yourself go.  Lazy thing!

Obama: Why I Might Not Vote For You In November / #17

Here’s yet another act on President Obama’s part that (don’t forget, he’s a “Constitutional lawyer”) is making me think twice about how I’ll vote in November:

Obama Makes It Official: Suspected Terrorists Can Be Indefinitely Detained Without a Trial

Despite having once threatened to veto the bill due to controversial language about the treatment of suspected terrorists, the president signed the controversial National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law on Saturday. Barack Obama did not keep his lingering concerns about aspects of the bill law a secret, however. In justifying his decision to sign NDAA into law, Obama said in a statement, “I have signed the Act chiefly because it authorizes funding for the defense of the United States and its interests abroad, crucial services for service members and their families, and vital national security programs that must be renewed.” He continued, “The fact that I support this bill as a whole does not mean I agree with everything in it. In particular, I have signed this bill despite having serious reservations with certain provisions that regulate the detention, interrogation, and prosecution of suspected terrorists.”

Obama:  If you have “serious reservations” about a bill, you veto it.  Period.

And bear in mind — nut cases could become president who could abuse this new law to no end.

More on how you and I might land in indefinite detention as a result of this bill here and here.

Oh, and talk about Friday afternoon DC “document dumps.”  This is even worse.  It’s Saturday and it’s New Year’s Eve.  The White House is clearly worried about this yet hey, they think we’re idiots and we won’t notice.

Happy New Year!

Magic Animals

Look at that face!

It’s just too tempting, isn’t it? You see an unattended camera and before you know it, you’re snapping away. Possibly that was what was going through this cheeky macaque’s mind as he posed for this hilarious self-portrait in North Sulawesi, Indonesia, after photographer David Slater left his camera for a few minutes.

More here:  From Anne the elephant saved by Mail readers to Boo, the world’s cutest dog. 2011 was the year of animal magic.

Newt Gingrich is Such a Kidder

Geezus, talk about pandering:

Last night during a tele-town hall hosted by Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Coalition, a caller asked Newt Gingrich if he would consider choosing Sarah Palin as his running mate if he wins the Republican nomination:

Gingrich:  She is certainly one of the people you would look at. I am a great admirer of hers and she was a remarkable reform governor of Alaska, she’s somebody who I think brings a great deal to the possibility of helping in government and that would be one of the possibilities. There are also some very important Cabinet positions that she could fill very, very well. I can’t imagine anybody who would do a better job of driving us to an energy solution than Gov. Palin, for example. Tell her that she would certainly be on the list of one of the people we would consider.

Listen to the audio here.

Yeah, rrright.  Newt, you expect us to believe this?
