Burnie

Hi, it's me Burnie.  I know it's the wrong day and I haven't written in a while, but there's a good reason.

I've been too weak to get to the computer.  I made the mistake about two months ago of sitting on the scale when mom was around.  She saw that I've gotten a little heavy.  I only weigh 20 pounds, but she thinks that's a lot.

The first thing she did was cut out our afternoon snack.  Now we only get half a can of food each.  That wasn't too bad at first because we still had our dry food.  Now I noticed that since the bowl is empty, it hasn't been refilled for a few days.  I think she's trying to starve us.

I'm so hungry that all I can do is sleep.  I don't even have the energy to play or chase Crash.

Is there someone I can report mom to for cat abuse.  Really, only 1/2 can of food.  That's not enough for a cat.  Maybe I'll go chew on a leaf from one of her plants.  That'll show her.

Missing in Paris - Part II

I've been listening to some of the comments on the TV this morning and I feel I must retract part of my statement yesterday.

It seems that I was wrong about our representation at the rally/march in Paris yesterday.  The president did not send Eric Holder to represent us yesterday.  Eric Holder just happened to be in Paris for some other reason and he made an appearance.  However, he didn't stay long; he left before the march even began.

A few days ago the president said that we stand with France, apparently he has a very short memory, or he didn't mean it.

Missing from Paris

I've just been watching the anti-terror march/rally in Paris.  What a huge amount of people, many of whom are trying to show support for the people who were murdered this past week by the muslim terrorists.

Scanning the faces in the crowd of world leaders, I recognized Angela Merkel, Francois Hollande, David Cameron and Benjamin Netanyahu.  The broadcasters mentioned the leaders of other countries like Poland, Ukraine, Palestine, Russia, NATO and the Arab League.

I looked at every face leading the march and could not find the most recognizable - the president of the United States.  For some reason, he could not find the time to attend, BUT he did send a representative - Eric Holder, the soon to be former Attorney General.

Surely, the president could have found a better representative of our country, the attorney general is the 7th in line to the presidency.  I can understand the president's not wanting our country to be represented by the Speaker of the House (John Boehner) or the President pro tempore of the Senate (Orin Hatch), both Republicans, but, I'm sure Joe Biden, our Vice President, is available.  For representation in international areas, he could have sent the Secretary of State - John Kerry, or the Secretary of Defense - Chuck Hagel (even though he's a republican).

I guess the president was too busy trying to find a warm place to play golf this weekend that he couldn't find the time to send a person to represent us who still plans to work for us.
