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.'"

Dennys Photo Gallery: Winter Ice and Snow

From Denny:  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...

Dennys Art Sanctuary: Funny Art Cartoon - What Love Is All About: " As an art lover I also love an artist with a sense of humor. Some of the most overlooked artists are cartoonists. Often they are taken for granted as we read in print or online our favorite daily newspaper. They depict our streaming politics, often lampooning policies or hypocritical politicians trying to sell a loser idea.

Today's art cartoon from Ballard Street is all about the art of assuaging a loved one's ego. Get a grin at this one:"

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."

Dennys: News Politics Comedy Science Arts & Food: Post Roundup at Dennys Blogs - 24 March 2011




Dennys: News Politics Comedy Science Arts & Food: Post Roundup at Dennys Blogs - 24 March 2011: "Check out news, politics, great food, funny political humor, sassy opinion, astronomy and science, great quotes,  awesome photography, poetry and spiritual thoughts.

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."

From Denny: 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!

Dennys Global Politics: Libya Update: No-Fly Zone Allies Pound Gadafi Forces Over Weekend

Dennys Global Politics: Libya Update: No-Fly Zone Allies Pound Gadafi Forces Over Weekend: "Once the United Nations and The Arab League agreed to a no-fly zone late last week, they wasted little time in implementing it. That has to be the fastest the United Nations has ever moved to agreement or action to help a besieged people.

From the sea over 100 miles away, the UK and America lobbed cruise missiles at Gadafi installations, most especially his air defense ones. After all, if you are going to send up French and American planes to enforce the no-fly zone you first have to take out the military capability of Gadafi to fire upon them."

From Denny:  Can I say, "Wow!" What a huge talent is this fellow journalist who is also a digital artist, a sculpture, a photographer. And did I mention he speaks a slew of languages? He was born in the Ivory Coast nation at the tip of Africa and now lives and works out of Belgium

He has been developing this intriguing art technique he labels as digital circlism and he is currently exploring its possibilities.  Heine really knows how to move the emotion of a subject while paying attention to tiny details that enrich the viewing experience: Art!

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."
