Manchurian Candidate???

Jeff was telling me about a movie that I should watch called The Manchurian Candidate. Evidently, this movie is about a POW who is brainwashed by his captors to "destroy" his country when they give the word or something to that effect. I haven't watched it yet, but I will because Jef has it, but he hasn't seen it yet either. That movie and that remark made by McCain's top aide made me wonder if that movie is about to come true in real life. First of all, McCain was a POW, but he was an officer. Daddy was a grunt in VietNam, and he always said the officers stayed back where it was safe. They didn't generally venture out into the jungle, and they usually gave themselves medals after the firefight was over for things they didn't do because they weren't even there. If they did capture an officer, he would be a more likely candidate for brainwashing than a private since he would be more likely to rise to a higher position in the military or politics. He would also be an easier person to brainwash since he already has that "military" mindset.
I'm not an overly suspicious dog, but to make a remark about a terrorist attact being good and it should be part of their campaign strategy upset this dog. The humans I live with aren't too happy about it either. Since his party are the ones who are in charge now, it would make me think they aren't capable of thwarting an attack. It also makes me wonder how intelligent they are to even suggest such a thing. I guess they think they can do anything to get elected.

Unbelievable News

Jeff was on the computer, and he came and told Mommy that Charles Black, one of McCain's top aides said that a terrorist attack would be good for their campaign. Does this mean that they are going to arrange one to help their candidate win? Actually, Mommy thought Jeff was making it up until she saw the internet news. I want to officially announce that I plan to win the Presidency with good old fashioned common sense. The founding fathers were very wise men who had a vision for this country and I want to fulfill that vision not only for humans, but for their dogs also. I want to officially announce that I would never even think of arranging a terrorist attack just to win an election. Some people will do anything to get into power--lie, cheat, steal, or arrange a terrorist attactk. As a candidate, I want to apologize for another candidate even considering such a horrible thing--it makes a mockery of the race, and makes humans dis-trust policiticans. Remember, vote for the dog (Demon Flash Bandit) on election day.

Song Writers Inspiration--Drugs or Brain Damage?

Today I would like to discuss a classic song from the early part of the twentieth century. That song is Yes, we have no bananas, we have no bananas today. Mommy says it is proof that some popular songs have been silly since the beginning of time. Jeff actually came up with the song's deep philosophical meaning. I heard him say it was a metaphor for... blah....blah....blah. being a dog, I am far too intelligent to listen to Jeff's garbage. I'm still wondering how he does it with a straight face because it is such utter and complete nonsense.
The song, Yes, we have no bananas was popular, but I think it was meant to be fun. I'm sure Jeff could come up with a deeper meaning for songs the Beatles did. I don't care what Jeff comes up with, songs like Yellow Submarine are good, but they are also proof that the writers were probably stoned out of their gourd when they wrote them. I'm not criticizing--just pointing out that all yo dogs out there should just listen and enjoy--not bother with thinking about the meanings.

Mommy was watching a movie last night. I think it was called Freakz. It didn't have a dog, but it did have a dog boy, and so I'll say that at least they were trying. Dogs should be in every movie (preferably as the star).

I hope all you dogs are having a wonderful weekend, and remember, Yes, we have no dog food, eat people food today.

Candyland

I am so excited about a board game I heard about recently. It is called Candyland. If any of you have read my past diary entries, you would know that I happen to love candy. I'm not very fond of candy. I LOVE candy!!! I got so excited when I heard about it. I'm guessing the game is based on an actual place, and it sounds like the most perfect place in the world to live. Imagine a whole land filled with Mike and Ike's and Swedish Fish. It has to be the most wonderful place in the world. There is no way it could be hot there or the candy would get icky so that would be good for me since I'm not fond of hot weather. Cold weather is fine, but hot weather is lousy. If any of you dogs know where this Candyland place is, let me know. Send me a map. I've got to go there even if it is just on vacation. Who needs to cruise the Carribbean when you can go to Candyland?

UTube Should Be Entertaining

I'm sorry I didn't write yesterday. I got a bit busy napping. You know how it is. You find a comfy spot and why leave it? The humans could learn so much from us dogs. I think they love to be miserable. It gives them a chance to complain. Maybe if someone gave them some Milkbones, they would be happier. The secret to happiness must be Milkbones and a good nap.

Several people sent Mommy a U-Tube thing about some Representaive from Texas giving a speech about light bulbs. I watched it for about 2 minutes, and I realized why most people don't know what is going on in Washington. Those people are BORING. How exciting can the subject of light bulbs be anyway. It isn't like they are a new invention. Edison came up with the idea many years ago. Henry Ford even brought Edison's whole New Jersey compound to Greenfield Village in Dearborn, MI, where the humans can actually see where he made the first light bulb. Of course, I'm guessing we dogs aren't allowed there. We are so neglected. Anyway, I doubt that Edison talked about light bulbs so much, and they were a whole new thing that at least was exciting at that time. This guy was droning on about energy saving light bulbs. I'm not saying whether he was right or wrong since even Mommy got bored out of her skull and closed the UTube thing--and not a moment too soon. I think a dog can die from that kind of boredom. I think the representatives have a conspiracy to keep people from knowing what they are up to by being so boring that no one can stand to listen.

Stanley Cup--Why all the Fuss Over a Used Cup?

June 18th 2008 12:00 pm

Have any of you dogs watched the X-Men. The reason I'm bringing it up is the mutant named Wolerine. He has claw like knives on his hands, but he looks like a human. Is he some kind of man-dog mutant or is he just a total wierdo? Some of those mutants are even wierder. They are allowed in restaurants and stores, yet dogs aren't. What kind of justice is that? A guy with "knife hands" can sit down for a meal at a restaurant, but we dogs can't.

I'm not quite sure if I heard Jeff correctly, but I think the Detroit Red Wings won the Stanley Cup. Why are they giving the Red Wings Stanley's cup without his permission? Do they wash it first? Why would they be happy "winning" a used cup? Since they are called Red Wings, are they birds? These are very important questions that I have been pondering for the past couple of days. So far, here are the answers I have came up with. They had to play Stanley to "win" the cup because he didn't want to give it up. I don't know if it is washed before they get it, but I would suggest washing it before you drink anything out of it. I don't think they are birds, but a dog can't be too careful about the whole bird situation. Birds sometimes disguise themselves. Someone should tell the Red Wings that cups aren't usually very expensive when they are new, and since they are okay with a used cup, they need to learn about an event that many Americans take part in every weekend--the garage sale. That is where people take all the stuff that they no longer need, and put it into their garage. Then they sell it to other people who might be able to use it. Some humans get a little carried away and will buy anything and everything. I heard about one human who bought a bunch of losing lottery tickets. Okay, I made that one up, but if they are losing MI instant tickets with the dog's photos on them, it would be a wise purchase. I'm thinking of having a dog house sale, but I don't want to part with any of my toys. I also have a bit of a problem since I don't have a dog house. I live inside the human's house. A dog's life is so complicated.

Back to the whole hockey thing. It is probably the stupidest game invented, but it is played on ice which is its only redeeming feature. Have they thought of including huskies as kind of a half time dog show? We sled dogs love ice and snow!

Humans Need Dogs

I think I should have my own office for writing my diary entries. I am expected to write when I am surrounded by toys, and not good toys with squeakies, but silly human toys. Must a dog have to write in the middle of Mommy's e-bay inventory? For example, there is this Major Powers action figure. It says major problems require MAJOR solutions which means calling in MAJOR Powers. Personally, I don't see it. It is a human action figure, not a dog. Humans can't solve a problem without a dog. Scooby Doo is a perfect example of a group that, even though they didn't admit it, would have been completely lost without their dog. I guess the human action figures make the children feel better, but they aren't being brought up with the truth. They need a dog to survive.

The humans just keep acting odder and odder. The CA Supreme Court had a new marriage ruling. Evidently, this new marriage ruling has a lot of people upset. I tried to understand, and I came to the conclusion that humans must like to tell each other how to live which we dogs are too smart to do. It is hard enough for a dog to live his own life. We don't want to get involved with telling other dogs what to do. Some of them are kind of grouchy, and they might bite. Then this former right wing (watch him--he might be a bird) senator, Rick Santorum was talking about marrying his mother-in-law because he loves her which sounded kind of creepy. I asked Mommy and she said it is kind of creepy too, and also a bit stupid because, with the CA ruling, her should be marrying his father-in-law. I think either one is creepy, and I wonder about people who would vote for a creepy guy like that. I guess he must be close friends with that Michael Jackson character because he is kind of creepy too. Humans seem to spend a monumental amount of time trying to tell each other what to do. No wonder they don't have enough time for a good nap which is what I plan to do now.

I have been writing about all the areas of the country that are too dry because the birds are stealing the rain and selling it to the penquins. I am very sorry about the floods in Iowa, and the dogs there have my sincere sympathy. I just want to let you know that the floods are the birds' fault. They steal rain, and when they were flying over your area, they dropped the rain without meaning to which, of course, caused flooding. Those birds are just so evil that they hurt everyone everywhere. Iowa dogs, I hope things are back to normal soon, and next time you see a bird, be sure and kill it. Those birds are rotten.

Mommy just finished reading an interesting bit of news about Laura Bush killing a classmate when she was 17. They were rumored to have been dating, but I'm not actually sure about that. I feel it is my duty to report what I learn since it seems like most of the humans haven't heard this story. Laura was driving, and she ran a red light and hit a car at an intersection. The driver of that car died. I know accidents happen, but I am wondering how many people who are charged with manslaughter walk away scot free. I guess she must have known the right people. Perhaps since it was Texas, they gave her a medal because those people seem to really like it when people die.

By the way, I thought of a reason why the NRA needs loaded guns in national parks. You know that Yogi character who is smarter than the average bear and steals pic-a-nic baskets. I bet he won't be smarter than the average bear when he tries to steal that NRA member's lunch. I'm sure they would say that a gun would also come in handy if you meet Yosemite Sam, and you have a shoot out with him. Maybe I was too harsh on the NRA for wanting loaded guns in national parks. Why does the phrase, happiness is a warm gun come to mind now?
