Welcome to Meowsings of an Opinionated Pussycat!
I had planned to do a lot more blogging this summer, but Daddy was pre-occupied with his Genealogy Research, and some other stuff, spending my self-designated non-nap taking time online...and so I didn't.
So what brings me back into action?
The Humans are freakin' out.
There is no pussyfootin' around it, it's the last stages of their Congressional and Presidental Election Season, something that occurs every 2 and 4 years, like clockwork.
Watching the speeches, and debates, on the campaign trail, and in the House and Senate, not to mention the TV Talking Heads, I am frequently put in mind of the caterwauling, late at night, outside the window of The Maceyugoserbulgarigreekadonian Compound, among felines itching for a fight, or just looking to get laid.
Sound and fury, signifying something or other, I'm sure, but just exactly WHAT many American Voters are still struggling to figure out.
As if THAT wasn't enough they apparently can't seem to keep their Financial house in order at the moment.
I haven't seen any reports of Wall St. Fat Cats leaping out of windows, yet, but the way the folks trying to pass this ill-advised bailout, and trying to sneak a revised version past the riled-up American Public a few days later, tell it, you'd think the sky was about to fall if Daddy, and the rest of America, didn't listen to the litter box full of Chicken Littles squawking their lying little hearts out.
This Cat thinks Americans need to re-consider their choices this November.
Why strut on 2 legs into the Oval Office when you can prance in on all fours?
The more I watch the debates, and the news, the more it makes one wonder if John McCain and Barack Hussein Obama would stand a chance against some of the four-legged pawliticians out there.
Imagine what the country would be like today if Pigasus had won!
On second thought...don't let's go there. ;-D
There ARE some alternative candidates out there to choose from, and I don't mean Ron Paul, Ralph Nader, or Cynthia McKinney. ;-D
Check out the Demacat known as Cheysuli:
Chey is an active girl and she loves her food. She's funny because sometimes she's very affectionate and other times she is skitish.
Candidate Cheysuli has rushed to Washington to help iron the details of any future financial bailout. The candidate waited until this week to rush off because she was napping through the original financial melt down.
“Actually,” stated Cheysuli, “I was required to be with my family as the Woman was having a financial meltdown thinking that WAMU actually collapsed. She is still thinking that this is a bad thing as she is certain that JP Morgan Chase will require higher fees from her small business account.”
Proving that politics is often a Dog eat Dog profession another Liberal candidate is Elvis, the Elvinator, a PUGnacious 11 year old who was a gift to his human from her boyfriend.
Guess who ended up on the couch, and who ended up in her bed?
On the Republicat side there WAS Doc Holiday, an 8 year lady with talent to match her looks.
She believed that she is "Purrfect for America! A Moderately Liberal Conservative Republican!"
Until June she was actively running for office, but finally made a difficult decision:
She quit the race!
"Americans have yet to reach a point where they are sophisticated to realize that Feline-Americans are far superior beings."
She then made an important endorsement:
I am officially endorsing John McCain for President of the United states of America. While I feel he is a most excellent choice, my final decision was made because of the love his wife, Cindy McCain has for Non-Human-American of all shapes, sizes, and species. It is my opinion that she will be a very strong advocate for all Feline-Americans, Canine-Americans, and other Non-Human Americans.
She then took a nap...and seems to still be napping, 5 months later. ;-D
There does not seem to be another Republicat running this year, that I can see, so if anyone knows of one please let me know!
Anyway, there IS Russell, however. ;-D
Russell is a Republicat. ;-D
With the help of his Human, Deborah Gamec, and illustrated by North Carolina artist Roxanna Jo Alexander, Russell wrote a wonderfully illustrated book for children, in 2002,
depicting Republican tendencies demonstrated by Russell, a Republican cat. The book also features Russell's friends, a Democrat and an Independent.
As one fan wrote at the time:
"If Russell catches on we could replace all those boring political commentary programs with animated political cartoons shows like 'Face the Cat', 'Washington Whiskers' and 'This Week with Garfield.' "
Now there's an idea!
Americans need to get "Russelled"! ;-D
Are you tired of Obama and McCain? Democat and Republicat?
Cat Galaxy has come up with a choice that really kicks tail.
What's Cat Galaxy?
I didn't know, either, until today. ;-D
An Internet radio and TV station specifically for Cats to listen to and also watch.
On this site you can receive all the need to know facts about Cat Galaxy and its live Internet radio shows like Morning Meows, Meow Mixing Monday, Tuesday Night Cat Club, Wednesday Night Cat Attack, Thursday Night Purr Party, and the Friday Night Feline Frenzy.
It seems that the Station Manager, Isis (Her running mate is her brother, and Assistant Station Manager, Icarus.) has run before...on the Purr Party ticket!
Isis is both black AND a woman, thus trumping both Obama, and Sarah Palin! ;-D
This smart, and sassy, Arizona Pussy has a 10 Point Plan concerning what she wants to achieve once elected to office.
Here are 5:
1. Isis will work hard to make health insurance available and affordable to every American citizen. No cat wants to see their human ill and thus have their feeding or lap time affected. She will also make sure there is affordable health insurance for cats and other animals since vet bills can get pretty heavy.
2. Declawing would be against the law in every state. Isis will work with every state government to outlaw this painful practice. Declawing would also be against federal law and she will work with the congress to have this established.
3. She will work hard to convince the humans that alternative fuels are the way to go and make us less reliant on foreign oil. Humans need a break at the pump so they can continue to pay for food and items that their cats need.
6. Allow cats to vote in the general election. Why should humans have all the voting power?
9. Affordable housing for every human ensures that cats will always have a roof over their heads. But Isis will also press for the federal government to require a throne room built in each home due to the cats status as royalty. Isis cares about family as well, so she will insist that humans be allowed to add cats and other animals as dependents on tax forms. Cats right now are not considered members of the family or dependents when it comes to taxes. Isis feels they should be since more and more humans consider their cats their kids.
Her stance on Illegal Immigation, and on the need for a strong Military, are also of interest.
While not the only cat running, she certainly is the most organized, with the deepest financial war chest, and appears to have more knowledge than the other candidates mentioned above, not to mention the previous campaign experience to go along with that knowledge.
The human candidates must be worried about her chances for success:
The Arizona Secretary Of State's Office is now attempting to keep Isis and Icarus out of the General Election because they are cats and therefore stating they don't qualify to run as write-in candidates for President and Vice President of the United States.
The United States Constitution nor the Arizona Revised Statutes have any rules that specifically state that a cat can't run for political office.
The election laws currently only govern humans in the race, not cats.
Therefore, Isis's and Icarus's campaign should be recognized as legitimate and every vote for them should be made valid.
If you support their cause then sign the petition (Their goal is 1000 signatures), and learn about the other 5 points of her Plan, here.
