(Oh dear. You may want to look away Mom.)
I read on DailyBrisk today that Obama ate dog meat. I believe fellow blogger Iowa Hawk said it best: "Chicken poodle soup"
Now. Back to our regularly scheduled programing...

Young Barack Obama ate dog meat
"With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy)."~~Barack Obama in his book, 'Dreams Of My Father'.
(I'm just getting my rant muscles limbered up for the upcoming presidential campaign. As you may have guessed, I don't give the Big Three networks much credit for being unbiased in their coverage. Most of the time they might as well wear Obama campaign shirts and tops as they give their reports. Maybe they'll surprise me this time around...)
Argentina will seize natural-gas producer YPF Gas SA as part of plans to boost control of its natural resources, two days after seizing oil producer YPF SA. (YPFD)
“We supposed it was a unit of YPF, but it isn’t, it’s a separate company,” Senator Anibal Fernandez said today in Buenos Aires. “Both companies need to be expropriated.”
Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner seized control of YPF, the country’s largest energy company, on April 16, and sent a bill to nationalize the stake. Argentina said Spanish parent Repsol YPF SA (REP) was responsible for declining Argentine oil and gas output since 1998. Senators will vote on the bill April 25 after senate committees approved it today.
Michelle Obama made a remarkable claim when talking up her husband, President Barack Obama, at a campaign event earlier today in Nashville, Tennessee.
"I am so in," Michelle Obama said toward the end of her remarks. "I am going to be working so hard. We have an amazing story to tell. This president has brought us out of the dark and into the light."
The crowd of nearly 450 folks applauded as the first lady likened her husband to a Jesus-like figure.
Another pundit said: "Romney had a dog on the roof of his car; Obama had dog on the roof of his mouth."
A big dress for a big day! Bride wears $8,000 wedding gown with a 502metre train that weighs nearly 50kg
Bride Li Kuo, 25, wore a wedding dress with an astonishing half a kilometre long train, which weighed nearly 50kg and cost almost £5,000, in Hubei, China. It took more than 20 bridesmaids to help steer the trailing frock to the altar. She chose the length specifically because in the local dialect the pronunciations of the numbers '5' '2' '0' sound the same as the words 'I' 'love' 'you'.
