The Mean Kitty: YouTube Vlog

I came across this video blog called "The MEAN Kitty". It's pretty entertaining. It started out as a daily vlog, but then became a weekly vlog. They also made an appearance on "The Bonnie Hunt Show".

These vlogs are just little daily glimpses into the lives of our cats Sparta and Loki. Posting daily from 7.29.2009 - 9.1.2009 while Stephanie and I prepare for our wedding on 9.6.2009.

The day Sparta met Loki:

This is the beginning of the vlog...

Congressman Mike Rogers' Opening Statement On Health Care Reform

I guess this was posted on July 16th... somehow I missed it at the time. Regardless, I thought it was worth sharing. He made some important points.

Returning Soldier Greeted By His Ecstatic Dog

I first saw this on one of the news shows... I kept meaning to ask my mom if she had seen it. I made a mental note to search for it, but I just haven't had the time over the last few days. Then *wahlah*... it shows up in my inbox.

A Good Question... Government Help or Control?

I came across this excerpt (below) from a 2008 forum entry that very much applies right now with the debate on whether there should be government-run health care.

"I think it's funny when people talk about Cuba and how wonderful it is because the government controls....uh...I mean....funds everything. And yet Cubans risk their lives by floating on an old door across the ocean to get here. Why would they do that? After all, communist Cuba is just so freakin' awesome! Michael Moore tells us so.

Don't fall for it. The more aspects of our lives controlled by any government, the less freedom we have."

Every government program created to "help us out" turns into a huge, bloated, money-sucking, bureaucratic blackhole with so much red tape it ends up hurting more people than it helps.  It becomes out of control and easily abused... which ends up costing us (the taxpayers) even more.

With every addition we become one step closer to complete dependency on the government.  This is not the government our founding fathers envisioned.  It was not meant to become the surrogate mother and father of every citizen.  It was meant to protect us and our freedom.  Not to decide how we are to live and provide for our every need.  That's control... and when we give over control, we also give over freedom!

Something to think about.

Went to see "2012" Friday afternoon with Lacee & Sandy. It was excellent! Great special effects, action, humor... they, of course, took some liberties with reality here and there... but made for a great movie. I love disaster movies! Especially if they have a plausible storyline... doesn't have to be extremely accurate or entirely believable... just enough plausibility for me to escape into the possibility. If it's a historical movie... there I want accuracy.

I enjoy a great post-apocalyptic or futuristic movie now and again.  I loved "The Postman" and may be one of the few who liked "Waterworld".  I also loved "Starship Troopers".  Hey, what can I say...?

"2012" Clip - L.A. Gets Destroyed

This is DEFINITELY a 'need to see on the big screen' kind of movie! Awesome special effects!

Adam Lambert's Time For Miracles... from "2012"

Adam Lambert has a song, Time For Miracles, in the upcoming movie "2012".  It's a power-ballad... kind of like what Aerosmith had for "Armageddon".  Great jump start for his career!

I like the retro look of the album cover, reminds me of the art covers in the 70's.  I don't care for how "feminine" he is portrayed as.

Enjoying Deer With Your Breakfast

This video made me miss home. I miss having wildlife around my property.
