The Social Poets: Late Nite Jokes Roundup: Comics Mock 2012 Politics, Faster Load:
From Denny: Start off your work week laughs with America's favorite comics. These are all their best jokes for September 2011.
They cover everything from Labor Day, former VP Dick Cheney's new book (Fabrication of Outrageous Lies), President Obama and Speaker Boehner arguing over when the president can give a speech because it might interfere with a lame GOP debate or American football.
We all know which one of those events is most important. :)
The GOP candidates and their strange debates where the audience cheers how many people were executed in Texas this year is a slam dunk for the comics. And the Independents are edging farther and farther away from the GOP, yet, strangely enough, not moving toward Obama and the Democrats either.
Can this be the year ol' Ralph Nader finally succeeds if he makes his bid for the presidency?
Not to be missed are the continuing Sarah Palin jokes. For someone who insists upon being so one-dimensional it sure is amazing just how jokes are manufactured about her.

Beautiful Illustrated Quotations: What Is Your Daily Meditation Focus, How Do You Know You Succeeded In The World?
Beautiful Illustrated Quotations: What Is Your Daily Meditation Focus, How Do You Know You Succeeded In The World?: From Denny: You awaken in the early morning. What is your first thought? Is it to get the coffee going so you can turn your brain on, chasing away the sleep cobwebs? Is your first thought to start that To Do List in your head even before the sun rises?
Too often we fill our lives with "musts" and an endless stream of physical tasks all nagging for our attention. Jumping to those demands can easily get us out of balance, stressed out and excessively tired.
Have you ever considered changing what you think about when you first open your eyes in the morning? Know that you will get around to attending to your daily routine. Things have to get done and they will - but are you giving yourself the gift of cherishing that first thought in your day?

The Social Poets: 9-11 Stories Roundup: How Is America 10 Years Later?:
From Denny: Every year when this date comes we all pause and remember those whose lives were taken quickly and horribly. We mourn for those left behind and pray for them to find their way in life.
For the youngest generation this event is a moment seared upon their memory, remembering where they were when America was struck by terrorism and the Twin Towers fell. Included here is an article of how to talk to children about the attack.
Not all associated with this terrible event is sadness, despair and sorrow. Whether survivors, or families and friends of the fallen, many have discovered the well of strength within themselves. Others have started charities and foundations to honor not the dead but the lives of the victims, promoting their life philosophies and initiatives. Stories of wonderful inspiring people have been shared in the news and memorials for the world to remember.
