The Social Poets: Funny Jon Stewart Mocks What It Took to Humanize Dick Cheney: From Denny: Jon Stewart loves to talk about the Darth Vadar metaphor in regards to former Vice President Dick Cheney. Cheney has a new book out, called "In My Time," and is busy hawking it on every talk show that will take him.
Stewart gives us many clips of Cheney hard at work selling his piece of fiction he claims is nonfiction. What's amusing is how "The View" talk show just had to say, "Mr. Vice President, let's talk about this little bulge here." She patted his chest. Jon thought that funny as he wondered out loud "how that (statement) played to the radio broadcast audience."
As Cheney launches into his "old man talks about his health issues" talk on "The View," Stewart is speechless, unable to mock. Can it be there is finally something Jon cannot mock successfully? Find out why in this funny clip:

The Social Poets: Funny Jon Stewart, Colbert React to Republican Debates: From Denny: Only Jon Stewart could dissect this crazy GOP line-up, revealing true agendas. When he goes after Michele Bachmann for her idea of mothering it sure is a left field what she says.
You expect her to comment on how raising five biological children and 23 foster children she would opine upon parenting skills in the area of how they needed lots of love and daily structure. Nope. What she says is "children need jobs." No kidding.
What I found most disheartening about her quote about children of poverty - from a over a year ago - is when she commented about how the poor should raise themselves up on their own, without government help - ever.
"Hunger is a great motivator." From that day forward I always wondered if she had starved any of those foster children to force them to do what she demanded.

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.
