The Social Poets: Iran: Gotcha Government Systems With The Stars Virus


The Social Poets: Iran: Gotcha Government Systems With The Stars Virus: "From Denny: The Iranian version of Chicken Little is running around screaming that their government systems were targeted again by the West. Read that as 'It's America's and Israel's fault. We have been wronged by the Big Bad Bullies of the West.'

Iran claims it is the Stars Virus, sent by vicious Western cyberattackers, has infected their computer systems. As usual for this clownish regime, they have not verified any of this to be true - other than the infection."

The Social Poets: Jon Stewart Interviews Egypt Revolution Activist Gigi Ibrahim


The Social Poets: Jon Stewart Interviews Egypt Revolution Activist Gigi Ibrahim: "From Denny: Stewart dishes out the political satire in a semi-serious interview aimed at exposing how for decades American policy has had little to do with the reality of every day Egyptians.

What is so funny about the experience of this young woman is how she became involved in the Egypt Revolution this past January in Tahrir Square.  She went to a class, 'The Social Mobilization Under Authoritarian Regime,' at the American University in Cairo."

Dennys Global Politics: Libya: Specific Targeting: Predator Drones, Gazillion Political Cartoons

Dennys Global Politics: Libya: Specific Targeting: Predator Drones, Gazillion Political Cartoons: "From Denny: America is off their war holiday and back in the driver's seat with NATO in Libya. Read that as the other guys so screwed up they demanded America go back to spending all the money and taking all the heat when the bombs land on unintended targets. They never did get their targeting as accurate as America does.

The latest? Well, at least we are using less expensive weaponry. This time we are back to using the drones with Hellfire missiles like we used in Pakistan. Of course, Pakistan is tired of us and ordered out our CIA intelligence gathering crowd. They aren't too happy with our drones killing off well-paying Taliban who fund the corrupt members of the Pakistani military and political circle.

So, what is a self-respecting American military to do? Well, just slide those useful drones right on over to Libya, of course: brilliant! We can boast about how we save money for the budget deal of a life time. Then we can brag how we don't kill quite as many innocents when we bomb Gadafi's troops."

A Norwegian photographer, Terje Sorgjerd, decided to hop on over to an island off Spain to film the Milky Way for this video. He says this area is the best place to observe the sky for the best views of the Milky Way Galaxy. It's definitely poetry in the sky. After viewing these incredible scenes I'm inclined to agree with him. Book me on the next flight to Spain! :) Happy Easter, everyone!"

Dennys Food and Recipes: From Chef Mario Batali: Grilled Easter Lamb, Pasta, Cheese Dishes

Dennys Food and Recipes: From Chef Mario Batali: Grilled Easter Lamb, Pasta, Cheese Dishes: "From Denny: Chef Mario Batali is rolling out a simple easy to do Easter dinner. He is also rolling out a new TV show in September of this year where he and a few friends discuss food and pop culture. It sounded like the name of this new show is 'The Chew.' If it's as good as his serial food show he and Mark Bittman and Gwyneth Paltrow did on Spain it should be a joy to watch - and learn.

On the Good Morning America set Chef Batali treated us to an Italian style Easter meal where the Italians love to celebrate the food of the season. If you enjoy potatoes as much as cheesy pasta, then his Pastiera dish is for you. Even vegetarians can enjoy this meal for the side dishes with cheese and eggs.

As usual Chef Mario has everything simplified so you can enjoy your holiday. Take a look at this wonderful grilled lamb dish.

Recipes Featured:

Butterflied Leg of Lamb with Garlic, Rosemary and Mint

The Social Poets: Funny 1917 CIA Spy Technology Docs Released: Invisible Writing


The Social Poets: Funny 1917 CIA Spy Technology Docs Released: Invisible Writing: "From Denny: Anyone who regularly reads this blog knows I grew up in the CIA. Yes, it was one weird childhood living with such paranoid uptight and often humorless people. Whenever the CIA releases ancient documents molding down in their deep dark spy basement it always gives me a grin.

When I was a kid we spent a lot of time figuring out codes since Dad had been a code breaker in WWII - among other things. One of our other childhood past times was to figure out intriguing ways to pass messages and, yes, write in invisible ink. Even Dad joined in the fun. My mother just shook her head and thought we were all a bunch of looney tunes. Knowing Dad he was probably using his baby geniuses to do his research on the cheap. Who said you can't take your work home with you?

Anyway, it is with great pleasure I present to you Rachel Maddow's cheeky report about Dear Ol' Dad's creepy CIA. This week, The New CIA under Director Leon Panetta, and a lot less creepy, odious and just plain obnoxious, released some 1917 technology for public viewing, er, laughter."

In this case, Caroline Kennedy, daughter of President John F. Kennedy, is rolling out a book of poetry.

This book, 'She Walks In Beauty,' is comprised of men writing poems about women to celebrate them. The collection is about women celebrating themselves, describing the special connection women have to poetry from growing up in the world of emotion."

The Social Poets: New Terrorism Alert System: Gone Is Bush Era Funny

The Social Poets: New Terrorism Alert System: Gone Is Bush Era Funny: "From Denny: What? My Democrats have gone and done something that makes sense? Whatever will we do without the crazy antics of the Republicans running the federal government? There goes the good entertainment value for your vote.


My own terror alert for Homeland Security when new poems are published

Gone is the stupid color coded terror chart of the Bush years we all loved to lampoon regularly. Today, Homeland Security revealed the obvious: two levels of alert, 'elevated threat' and 'imminent threat.'

Read elevated threat as 'Take a look around and be aware of your surroundings and pay attention to the news while you are at it.' Read imminent threat as 'You are basically screwed if you didn't pay attention to the first warning and check your phone apps for updates.'"

Feinberg is out doing the usual political damage control by going on all the media outlets for lying interviews. He justifies his pay from BP by claiming a Bush official signed off on it as a fair price."

The Social Poets: Funny Tax Season: Cartoons and Late Nite Jokes: "General Electric did not pay any taxes at all last year. Of course that’s because G.E. reported its sale of NBC as a charitable donation. – Conan O'Brien

President Obama wants to raise taxes on the country's richest people. And you thought Donald Trump hated him before. – Jay Leno

Obama called on Americans to have more grandchildren. Probably so there's more of them to pay off our debt. – Jay Leno

In the wake of record losses, the U.S. Postal Service announced it is cutting 7,500 jobs. But a spokesman for the post office said those positions could be restored if this whole email thing turns out to be nothing but a fad. – Jay Leno"

Posts Roundup at Dennys Blogs - 17 April 2011



From Denny: While the Japanese nuclear crisis continues unabated, the rest of the world has moved on, dreading the inevitable. At the moment the world community has pressured Japan to come up with a plan to contain or deal with the crisis over a nine month period.

Why the same people are in charge of this mess that created the mess is a mystery. It's as foolish as it was to trust BP to clean up the oil spill disaster in my own Gulf of Mexico. Serious hardships still exist as a result of President Obama and BP refusing to do what it takes to make things right, especially in Louisiana.

At the very least the President could do is refuse to allow BP access to any of America's oil fields on or off shore. The company has simply not earned the right to drill for oil on American soil or in our oceans.

As it is Obama is about to award BP another 13 oil leases. Hard to believe anyone could be that lame, isn't it? Worse, with the gas pump price gouging going on across America - on oil purchased a good 16 years ago by speculators - Obama still has not placed any restrictions upon the oil companies.

What he should be doing - if he had any sense to act like a populist and truly help the economy - he would restrict all oil companies drilling in the oil of Mexico to only American use and production. All the oil and natural gas production should go first and only to American consumers. Damn! I'd make a good President! What are we talking about? I'd make a GREAT president! :)

Well, thanks, everyone, for visiting all my blogs and supporting me these past couple of years. I enjoy writing for you - even if I did finally take a couple of days off this week to chill out for Earth Day. Thanks for visiting!

The Social Poets: The Ridiculous: Funny Donald Trump Cartoons, Late Nite Jokes


The Social Poets: The Ridiculous: Funny Donald Trump Cartoons, Late Nite Jokes: "OK, with a show of hands, who really thinks Trump is serious about running for President? Yeah, I agree with you. He's a complete clown no one would take seriously - except for the Republicans. Can you believe Trump last week's poll says he is  tied for first place for the GOP nomination? Just goes to show acting strange and exaggerated appeals to Republican voters who lost their minds long ago when they signed up on the Karl Rove-Bush's Brain Express.

The Donald Trump Exaggeration: his reality TV shows, the beauty queens, the weird hair and his gold-plated billionaire real estate empire."

Best Spiritual Posts: Wonderful Love Photo And Quote

Best Spiritual Posts: Wonderful Love Photo And Quote: "Over at flickr I've easily amassed a bookmarked database of over 8,000 photos of other people's photos I've enjoyed as I traveled through the site. Here's another from a sensitive - and spiritually minded - photographer who included a wonderful quote."

Beautiful Illustrated Quotations: Self-Absorption: How Do You Find The Road Map To Spiritual Maturity?

♥ Love - Agapi - Aşk ♥ Explored

Beautiful Illustrated Quotations: Self-Absorption: How Do You Find The Road Map To Spiritual Maturity?: "t's natural we all go through some degrees of self-absorption, especially when we are teenagers and young adults. One aspect of self-absorption is a strong self-nurturing in order just to survive and keep a sanity and balance in life. As teenagers and young adults we self-nurture to develop our individuality and separation from our parents so we can be independent once we start out in our new lives.

Eventually, Life calls us out of that self-nurturing as we learn to pull our attention away from ourselves and place it upon the people around us in our new families, children, our work place. We grow out of self-absorption over time.

But what about the folks around us who are stuck, finding themselves still self-absorbed long beyond the age of their 20's? How can we help them - or ourselves? We may be the self-absorbed person trying to figure out how to get ourselves past being stuck, wanting to take the next step toward greater maturity. We may be attempting to help another person in our lives to grow."

Dennys Funny Quotes: Odd News: Girl Yawns In Boring Class, Cannot Close Her Mouth, Goes To Hospital


Dennys Funny Quotes: Odd News: Girl Yawns In Boring Class, Cannot Close Her Mouth, Goes To Hospital: "OK, this is funny and not funny. Talk about downright strange. Have you ever yawned so much that you could not close your mouth - and jaw - back into position?

This college student was listening to a boring class lecture, let out a huge yawn, and then was terrified to discover she could not get her jaw back into position to close her mouth.

When your mouth is open that wide you can't talk, can't eat or drink. You can get dehydrated or even starve. Fortunately, a doctor knew exactly what to do for her by shoving a tall order of 26 tongue depressors into her gaping mouth. Then all they had to do was wait for her jaw muscles to get tired and then the doctor could set her jaw back into proper place."

Never mind there are 25 million people out of work and in dire need of jobs in America. Apparently, that is not a drama they find interesting enough to tackle when they can be jockeying for personal political power and recognition.

Congress and the White House were all about playing the game of 'Screw You!' as much as possible, creating serious bad blood in each party. The snakes are fighting the snakes in their own parties: Republicans vs. Republicans and Democrats vs. Democrats."

The Social Poets: Funny Videos: Jon Stewart Mocks Glenn Beck FOX News Departure: "Did any of us think the long rambling weird reign of foul-mouthed Glenn Beck would ever stop? Well, even FOX News has had enough and told him last week his show was canceled. He will depart the end of the year when his contract ends. Well, it never was real news, just imagined news.

For months comics have lampooned Beck's messianic Hitler style attitude and declarations. Well, even Beck's fans began to evaporate. Turns out in January his fan base began dwindling. Originally, at the height of his nightly viewership was clocked at about three million."

Read that as giving Gadafi cover for some time to either weasel out of the country or get his bearings back from so much bombing. After all, he wrote President Obama, like some affectionate pen pal, begging him to end the American air strikes as we worked to create the No-Fly Zone by eliminating most of Gadafi's air capability."

Greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide warm up the climate while some aerosols like sulfate, from fossil fuel combustion, are a cooling influence on global warming, acting as a counterbalance.

Arctic clouds and aerosols are thought to influence the loss of sea ice, carving out a niche as important roles in the energy balance on Earth. We all know what a cloud is but do you know what an aerosol is?"

The Social Poets: Government Shutdown and Cartoons: Courtesy of Tea Party and GOP

Boehner And CantorGOP Cantor, left, GOP Speaker Boehner, right - Image by TalkMediaNews via Flickr
The Social Poets: Government Shutdown and Cartoons: Courtesy of Tea Party and GOP: "This budget mess is a dark farce, courtesy of the Republicans and their inbred political cousins, the Tea Party. The GOP hates women and they hate giving federal funding for women's health care.

Millions of women depend upon that funding in Title 10 which provides reproductive and preventative care. Since it is mainly low-income women who are the beneficiary of these funds, Republicans don't care. After all, low-income people are not their voting demographic. Nor have they ever done anything for women either.

The whole process is disingenuous. To get the $100 billion the Tea Party demands, it's obvious: all you have to do is stop these idiot wars in Afghanistan and Iraq where we spend billions per month. And now our heavy involvement in Libya is equally expensive - to the tune of $1 million per Tomahawk missile fired to enforce the No-Fly Zone.

Want more easy cuts? Try the $1 billion 'tax cuts' for the wealthy that President Obama gave away far too easily, especially when 70 percent of the entire country said they did not want the rich to get tax cuts. He foolishly did it anyway. And now, here we are months later, with all of Congress and the President looking stupid in this budget fight."

The Social Poets: Wisconsin: Voters Slap Down GOP, Female Dark Horse Wins State Supreme Court Seat


The Social Poets: Wisconsin: Voters Slap Down GOP, Female Dark Horse Wins State Supreme Court Seat: "An obscure election got the royal treatment from activists and voters. Voters so hated Gov. Scott Walker's controversial anti-union initiatives they came out in droves to defeat a GOP incumbent for the Wisconsin Supreme Court. The surprise dark horse vote came for Democrat unknown JoAnne Kloppenburg, down by an astounding 30 points right before the election. She is a state attorney general with support from several unions.

Election officials tallied her win at a razor thin 235 votes over the GOP incumbent of 12 years, Justice David Prosser, who is known to be sympathetic toward Gov. Walker's policies. Prosser had come out of his primary with a 55 percent vote win. Kloppenburg was second of four candidates with only 28 percent of that primary vote. Prosser was expected to experience an easy runaway win - that fizzled because of unusually high voter turnout."

Obama: Unemployed, Middle Class, Poor: Hey, Stupid, Watch Your Finances, Political Cartoons



From Denny: To add insult to economic injury, completely tone deaf politically, President Obama Declares April Financial Literacy Month.  After just announcing his reelection campaign now he is urging Americans to learn more about their personal finances. You have got to be kidding me. How insensitive and downright stupid is this statement? Where have you been the past three years since the economy shed millions of jobs?

Obama: Do you even read - or better yet re-read - your own speeches over the course of a year? Or do you just parrot the words off the page or teleprompter without giving it much thought later.  Like Bush, you appear to be sleepwalking through this presidency, dancing to the tune of political handlers and Big Business.

The unemployment here in America is supposed to be at 8.8 percent. What a joke. There are millions of people who gave up looking. Those known as The 99ers, whose unemployment benefits ended after 99 weeks, have been unemployed for years now.  Even President Obama says there are hundreds of thousands of people who will never get a job again.  What kind of statement is that from a president?  Not everyone deserves a job in this country?"Business, economy, humor, Humour, news, news-analysis, news-opinion, Obama, political-cartoons, political-humor, politics

The Social Poets: Japan: Greedy Big Business: Save Company Not Lives: "Dragging into a one month crisis it is still unbelievable how TEPCO, Tokyo Electric Power Company, has the gall to continue placing the equivalent of band-aids on a life-threatening nuclear crisis. Today they threw wet concrete, newspaper shreddings, sawdust and sand onto an eight-inch crack where radiated water was leaking out into the ocean. Every decision made so far has been to try and save the nuclear reactors rather than entomb them in concrete, killing them - and the company's investment - forever."

The Social Poets: 12 Best of The Web Funny April Fools Day: Pranked, Spoofed and Trashed


The Social Poets: 12 Best of The Web Funny April Fools Day: Pranked, Spoofed and Trashed: "There are those among us - of a cheeky bent - who look forward to this one day a year when people forgive us for pranking them. Today the web was full of April Fool's Day fun from every angle, a real bumper crop of craziness!

1 - First up: Google leads the fun with their prank about their new feature of 'motion-controlled' email. After all, typing on a keyboard is 'so last century,' right? And Google says it's also 'outdated' and 'inefficient.'

'To open a message make a movement as if you were opening an envelope. To reply, simply point backward with your thumb,' Google says in a video demonstration. More instructions? 'To reply all, use both hands. To send a message, lick a stamp and place it down.'

Well, you too can look like a complete fool by believing this satire and standing up in your office cubicle on Freaky Friday and get elected Fool Of The Day by using various body language to instruct your computer. It's like using cat body language to write an email. Hey, whatever floats your boat."

Spring time is the season of change and cultures have always honored it. What funnier way to honor the concept of change in our lives than to play an April Fool's Day joke on someone? Tell yourself to be a good sport if you find yourself on the other side of that practical joke. The whole point of the day is to learn how to laugh at yourself because that is a sure sign that you are no fool. Ah, the road to wisdom... :)"

Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Video: Stephen Colbert: Turd Sandwich in Libya: "Only Stephen Colbert can put lipstick on a pig and call it beautiful. And that's what he did with Newt Gingrich's strange anti-Obama Anything that rarely makes sense these days. First, Newt is FOR a No-Fly Zone in Libya and then when Obama creates said zone, well, then Newtie is now against it. Go figure. Better yet - as Jon Stewart said, 'There are actually at least three women in America who have F'd Newt Gingrich. Now that's amazing!'

Turns out the funny name for this episode is because a White House aide told a reporter, Savannah Guthrie, that this Libya situation is basically so disgusting it's 'a turd sandwich.' Gee, and all the women in the world thought he was talking about Newtie. Hmmm... Gadafi or Newtie... yep, both are a filling for that sandwich.

What's funny is how badly the Republican critics of Obama kept trying to frame Obama's Libya speech. They tried to call it 'a dog's breakfast' to which Colbert puts up photos of breakfast at McDonald's to verify."
