The Social Poets: Funny Jon Stewart Mocks Twisted Misinformation From Fox News: "From Denny: Jon Stewart really rips into Fox News and Chris Wallace about how they present their idea of the truth. Their thinking is so confused and perverted it boggles the minds of clear thinkers.
What Fox News purports is that Jon Stewart is a partisan Democrat who likes to make fun of conservatives. They believe he makes fun of some liberals and Obama in order to maintain his credibility he is unbiased and fair. Hunh???
From Jon Stewart: 'That narrative of conservative victimization is the true genius of what Fox News has accomplished. Any editorial judgment in news, or schools or movies that doesn't favor the conservative view is elitism and is evidence of liberal bias.
'Whereas any editorial judgment that favors the conservative view is merely evidence of fairness and done to protect them from liberal bias. And, if you criticize Fox for this game, guess what that's evidence of: how right they are about how they are so persecuted. That argument is air tighter than an otter's anus.'"

From Denny: Astronomers just found out about this asteroid coming into our neighborhood for a drive by. It's called 2011 MD and will pass within 7500 miles of our planet today. Astronomers figure the asteroid is between 16 to 35 feet wide and coming 23 times closer than our moon.
It was only spotted last week by a robotic telescope in New Mexico configured to search out these kinds of astronomical hazards.
To give you a perspective, this asteroid will pass closer to Earth than our own GPS satellites. From the Planetary Science Institute check out these incredible animations explaining the geometry of this encounter.
The good news is that this asteroid will avoid a collision with planet Earth though it certainly will be a nail-biting close call. Astronomers seem to believe that even if it did come close it would burn up in the atmosphere on its descent. So, spread the word: humanity is not doomed to the fate of the dinosaurs, at least not this week. :) Check out the video:

The Social Poets: Roundup of Late Nite Jokes: 2012 Election Politics: "From Denny:While the nation laughs at the GOP contenders trolling across the nation for dollars and votes the comedians are out in full force making us laugh harder. First, there is the Sarah Palin 'We The People' Bus Tour across America to show her patriotism.
Forget it the historic facts were spewed out wrong. Just keep rolling that bus while you collect wads of cash to stuff into your greedy pockets. It's amazing anyone gives her money as she promises illogical things and delivers air promises. When the press quotes her exactly everyone is still left scratching their heads, wondering what was she addressing as an issue and what was her solution.
Then we all got to snicker as Newt Gingrich got fired by his own campaign. Come on. Who fires their candidate? Yeah, it was that bad. Kind of makes you feel bad for the Republicans. OK, not enough to vote for any of them but still... Can you imagine trying to sell lipstick on the Newt Pig? That's one hard sell that not even Tiffany's jewelry could improve. It's no wonder they covered their faces like The Taliban and left town."

The Social Poets: Funny Jon Stewart Mocks Wall Street For Causing Greek Crisis: "From Denny: Get your crash course in crooked banking Wall Street style from your favorite comedian. He does make learning fun. Why wasn't college this entertaining?
You have all hear about how Greece is melting down financially. Recently, the European Union put on hold their $billion bailout while they await Greece to sell off some of their assets. What took the Greeks so long to get around to the obvious? They should have sold their banks and state-owned companies years ago when they were first in trouble.
If you have ever visited Greece you soon learn they have one terrific lifestyle. It's not terribly responsible on the individual level any more than on the national level. They literally party every night, spending hundreds of dollars a night. They do not save money. They don't believe in savings accounts. Amazing."

The Social Poets: Billionaire Koch Brothers Send Attack Lobbyists to Stop Energy Legislation: "From Denny: The famous Koch Brothers, who love to meddle in the very same government they claim should not basically exist, are now flexing their financial muscles again. They are demanding legislators lose the proposed energy legislation for natural gas subsidies to help wean America off oil.
Of course, Koch Industries, based out of Kansas, primarily has interests in oil, refining and pipelines as well as chemicals and consumer products like toilet paper (Angel Soft) and paper towels (Brawny). These are the same numb nuts that want to burrow an oil sands pipeline straight up through America to Canada from Houston.
Did I mention they want to dig said crazy pipeline under the only fresh drinking water, an underground glacier, for the entire Midwest population? Oh, and they claim 'it's perfectly safe and nothing will go wrong.' Uh, huh, and that's what BP told us here in Louisiana about the Gulf of Mexico oil spill clean up."

Dennys: News Politics Comedy Science Arts & Food: Funny Colbert Interviews Ancient Deal Maker Henry Kissinger
|Henry Kissinger, long time member of secret World Order Bilderberg Group|
Dennys: News Politics Comedy Science Arts & Food: Funny Colbert Interviews Ancient Deal Maker Henry Kissinger: "From Denny: Nixon's point man to open Communist China to the world, and the early stages of free trade, was former GOP Sec.of State Henry Kissinger. Yes, blame him for losing your job and getting crappy quality imports.
Kissinger, 88-years-old, is hawking his new book 'On China.' Well, at least he didn't bore us with a long title. (Check out the link on Amazon.)
Kissinger did manage to hold his own with the crazy antics of Colbert. In fact, the old guy was good humored and rolled with the punches. He was Colbert's straight man every stand-up comic adores to use on stage."

Dennys: News Politics Comedy Science Arts & Food: Posts Roundup at Dennys Blogs - 12 June 2011: "From Denny: Check out what has been happening in the world of news, comedy, food, poetry, photography, art, music and more. In the past month a whirlwind of news occurred. World terrorist Osama bin Laden was hunted down and killed in a resort town in Pakistan where he had been hiding for the past six years. Supposedly, the Pakistanis were unaware of his presence there. Yeah? And I've got some swamp land in Louisiana to sell you too.
President Obama got a nice bump in approval ratings for about a week and then that fizzled as he resumed his usual do-nothing stance on the economy. Obama also continued with poisonous politics aimed at his own Democrats, throwing them all under the bus in favor of Big Business."
The Social Poets: Stealing Your Blog Content: Duplicate Content Farm MadHealth.net: "From Denny: Do you know who is stealing your blog or site content of original articles and posts, even poetry? Check out a serial violator of duplicate content on the internet. He may be stealing from your blog or site. How does it affect you on the internet when your copyright is violated?
The site known as Health News Gate, located at http://www.madhealth.net, is a duplicate content farm, stealing from all over the internet. He is based out of the Ukraine and ignores all contact letters of cease and desist.
MadHealth.net steals from all over the internet in areas of health, news, politics, sports, music, poetry, spiritual, you name it. Just a duplicate content farm that Google has yet to put out of their search engine."

The Social Poets: Comics Lampoon Hapless Anthony Weiner, Weird Headlines, Photos: "From Denny: This poor schmuck is beginning to look sympathetic. It's like everyone is piling on, OK, dumping on him, everything they are angry about in life. Right now, with a down economy and no relief in sight, that's considerable.
It's like there is this ninth grade mentality that has taken over the media, screaming the crudest headlines in the newspapers, TV and online news. Check out the ridiculous photos of the Weinergate scandal.
Meanwhile, the comics are lampooning his stupid Twitter antics. Sadly, comic Jon Stewart is good friends with Weiner and feels betrayed after trying to defend Weiner.
When the Weiner scandal first broke I figured it was just more toxic politics in an election year and I ignored it. Then it drug on and the media carried it on the nightly news incessantly. I caught a CNN interview with Weiner and knew immediately he was lying and that he had, in fact, sent the photos and they were his photos.
He did not admit it in the interview but rather dodged the questions. It was his body language that gave him away. A few days later he finally admitted out loud what was true. Hey, at least he's a bad liar. That's the good news for a politician."

Dennys Global Politics: Libya: Rebels Sell Us 1st Oil Production: "From Denny: Sec. of State Hillary Clinton is pleased to report the rebels are producing oil for the West, selling us their first batch. Can it be America has finally found someone willing to repay us for all the blood and money we have spent on them?
What a nice change of pace is this turn of events. My Democrats may finally be getting practical and downright useful instead of useless."

Ouch Outrageous Obnoxious and Odd: Funny Cartoon From Raymond Betancourt: When Cool Got Left Behind: "From Denny: Definitely when old guys get into trouble at the golf course. It sure does make your brain revisit getting old and wondering if you really want to be part of the longevity generation. Time for a proper monkey scream. Hmmmm..."

The Social Poets: State of the Economy, Oprah, College Grads, 2012 Election, Cartoons: "From Denny: Today President Obama's political team demanded $60 million from high roller campaign donors in Chicago, to be delivered before the end of June. Uh, there isn't even anyone to face yet in the Republican camp. A little over reaching, don't you think?
2012 Presidential Campaign
But hey, Mitt Romney jumped up and officially announced he is running for president. In case you have followed so many of his flip-flops of where he stands or doesn't stand - on just about any issue - he is running on the Republican side of the political aisle. Not to be confused with a guy not born in Kenya by the name of Obama. :)"
