    As for the protesters, one of them is sitting right here, in front of my computer, checking to see if anymore of our soldiers, sailors, marines have died since my last In Memoriam posting.

    $2 Million to go to Brazil thanks to Obama.

    Source.

    With all the oil we Know is here in the USA, lets fund drilling off of Brazil. Makes sense right? No it doesnt! They dont even have to drill here with the amount of finds that have been capped. What we lack is refinery cappacity. One also might question why we have so much of our refining cappacity in Hurricane Alley.

    Why increase our refineries output when the current push is to go green? Because our infrastructure is based on fosile fuels. Electric or Hybid cars, the electricity has to come from somewhere, batteries are not 100% efficient, so the electricity is produced from fosile fuels. Speaking of batteries, if you want a hybrid or electric car, you support strip mining if you expect the end product to be affordable. What happens to the batteries when they can no longer hold a charge, they get recycled. Recycled into what exactly?

    /Rant off.

    Regaurdless of the above rant, how many barrels of oil are sitting under our feet? We are importing millions of barrels of oil and gas because we dont have the cappacity to refine what we currently have in the ground on our own soil.

    BO's Jr press secretary should think about running for office. This guy is smarter, can talk without a teleprompter and off his cuff.

    --------------------

    I was thinking about how TK's political career would have been had he not been driving on that bridge way back when.

    Then, I compared his experience being a senator with the current WH occupant.

    Somehow I think the country was shortchanged.

    Wow, fate can be cruel.

    And here...although I do my check on Sundays...

    When I was digging out the squirrel photos last night I came across photos of the anti-war march I attended in San Francisco in 2003.

    [COLO="White"]Ive seen your pic, you are no cougar.[/COLOR]
    How did I miss this?? blue...you are wrong again...

    The most commonly-accepted definition of a cougar is a woman 40 years of age or older who exclusively pursues very young men.
    And I know how important links are to you so... What is a cougar?

    And you are quite right that I am not a cougar...I am a happily married woman...but ...my husband is a few years younger than I am!

    According to your definition of cougar, I don't qualify, as I was younger than 40 when Douglas and I started dating. As for cradle robbing, I don't think so.

    I think it means we are wise women. When we find the right one, we don't get tangled up with what others may say. We go for it

  12. I had just turned 40 when I started dating my husband.....oh no...I AM a cougar!!!!

    Here's what wikipedia has to say on their page on "Age disparity in sexual relationships" (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cougar_...29#Slang_terms):

    Cougar—a woman over 40 who sexually pursues younger men, typically more than eight years her junior. The term appears to have been coined by Canadian website Cougardate.com and has been used in TV series, advertising and film. The 2007 film Cougar Club was dedicated to the subject and in Spring 2009 TV Land aired a reality show called The Cougar.
    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    "Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."

    E.S., check out Phesina's post - a woman over 40. You made it just under the wire

  15. But you know....this still leaves my original questions unanswered.

    The older woman is called a cougar...what is the younger man called?

    Other than very fortunate??
