12 year-old Boy Killed trick-or-treating!

A 12-year old boy died from gunshot wounds last night while trick-or-treating in Sumpter, South Carolina. His father and brother also sustained wounds fired from inside a house. The police caught the crazy bastard and he is now in jail charged with three counts of attempted murder.

WATCH OUT FOR WIERD TRICK-OR-TREATERS TONIGHT!

Not all the ghouls and goblins, and things that go bump in the night, are

going to be children out seeking candy.

For instance, take the clown pictured here...he has soul mates across the states, so you're never sure where interesting characters like him will pop up trick-or-treating!

My five grandchildren will be out tonight showing off their costumes, which I can assure you, will bear no resemblance to anything this fellow is wearing.

Isn't Halloween great? Grown-ups get to act like kids and kids get to act like grownups.

Wherever you are tonight, make sure to turn on a light, and be ready for hungry Halloween visitors!

"Trick or treat! Give me something good to eat!"

Former President Bill Clinton campaigns for Obama: kisses everyone in sight!

It's nearly E-Day and the Democratic Party is bringing out all of their heavyweights to persuade voters to put Obama down as their presidential choice. Clinton surprised a number of onlookers when, after speaking out for Obama in Florida, he paused to French kiss a black lab who had snuck into the "kissing line."

An enterprising Clinton fan took this photo as the minutes passed. The touching moment was marketed as a Political Post Card (TWO DOGS KISSING) by the fan, who now says he wants to catch McCain, and a Pitbull that looks like Sarah Palin, in a similar spontaneous moment.

This blog says go for it! Soon this election is going to be over, and then what the heck are we going to do? This whole campaign has been called historic, and it is, if for no other reason than it's one of the funniest on record!

Of course, it's also ranks high in rancor. The name calling has excelled heights that even the Dark Lord ,Karl Rove has been surprised to see! Pundits have played with every nasty accusation, wallowing like pigs in the mire. 

It's not over yet, however, and as we go into the final days brace yourself for more political incoming!

 

THE ENGLISH HAVE FUN WITH HALLOWEEN TOO!

Blimey! This bloke was found on Dave Barry's Blog. He's said to be a product of some Englishman but no name is given. Whoever it was, he must be carving pumpkins for a living.

The Brits do like to celebrate Halloween and they go all out doing it...just like us crazy Americans!

MEET THE JERK-OF-THE-DAY: Bill Cunningham radio host

According to Cunningham, "People are poor in America, not because they lack money; their poor because they lack values, morals, and ethics. And if you can't teach and instill that, we're wasting our time simply giving poor people money."                                                                                                                                          

This moron went on to say, "Unlike many other countries in the world we have fat poor people. We don't have skinny poor people. Ours are fat and flatulent."

Iraq holds off agreeing to new UN mandate until conditions are met

Things are getting a bit dicey again between Iraq and American officials as they try to hammer out some conditions

that the Iraqis are demanding before signing a new UN Security Council Mandate.

 

Iraq's Planning Minister Ali Baban, a Sunni, also stressed that the Iraqis want jurisdiction over all US soldiers and contractors unless they are carrying out a joint military operation approved by the Iraqis. They also don't want any possibility of Americans staying in their country beyond 2011.

The sooner we get out of this mess the better. Too many good men and women have died fighting for oil!

OBAMA and McCain Concentrate on Swing States

As the Republicans become more desperate every day, John McCain continues to rally the faithful and to tell them to ignore the polls that show Barrack Obama ahead.

Obama meanwhile, continues to address massive gatherings of people and to get his message of change across. At a rally today he reminded listeners that they are five days away from making history when they vote for him.

Both candidates are running (okay McCain's walking) from one swing state to another trying to win over any undecided voters who may still be lurking around the American landscape. Despite the pundits pointing at the Democrats, who are leading in nearly every major poll, the argument that McCain could still win via the Electoral College is still out there today.

This is one of my concerns. We need to get rid of the Electoral College.

Make sure to see this Sunday's Times-Standard when As It Stands takes on the legitimacy of a relic from the past - the Electoral College!

THE REAL SPIDERMAN IS RETIRED FROM CRIME FIGHTING!

Billy Joe Parker, aka the real Spider Man, is slowing down these days. Now, well into his sixties, he's given up swinging from building to building and just stands at street corners passing out money to people.

"It's tuff giving up crime fighting," Billy Joe said in a recent interview with this blog.

He made it clear that it wasn't just his health that was causing him to retire from all the action. "I was getting tired of people not even saying 'thank you' after I risked my life to save their asses. There's a lot of rude victims out there," he claimed.

If you think Billy Joe looks bad these days you should see some of his old adversaries. Doctor Octopus spends his day in an indoor pool and looks like a walking prune with eight arms.

The Sandman can't even stay awake long enough to cause trouble these days, and arch-rival Dr. Doom is in a wheelchair and drools a lot.

For all of you Spider Man fans there's good news; Billy Joe doesn't charge for his autograph...he does, however, request that you never kill a spider as it could be one of his relatives!

LAKERS LOOK UNSTOPPABLE!

The Lakers blew out the Clippers 117-79 last night. While it's still early in the season this version of the Lakers is going to surprise teams with their aggressive defense and offense.

The team is so deep that the 2nd team probably could hold it's own with 80 percent of the teams in the NBA. It's going to be an exciting year for the purple and gold.

Bynum's return makes the Lakers the favorite to win title

Kobe Bryant is focused and at the top of his game. With Andrew Bynum back at Center the Lakers are looking like the team to beat. After winning the Western Conference the Lakers fell to their ancient rival the Boston Celtics.

It's not going to easy however, as the Western Conference still has most of the best teams.

The East doesn't look much different from last year with Boston being the class act. Detroit maybe there and Lebron is going to make Cleveland a team to contend with as usual.

But, for an old Laker fan like me...it's all about fun when the NBA gets underway next

Tuesday.

MONSTER PUMPKIN FEEDS ON LESSER GOURDS!

This monster pumpkin has been sighted on the  north coast and residents have been warned not to  interfere  with it.

Rumor has it this ponderous pumpkin is looking

for the famous Pukin Pumpkins who made their

debut here on this blog recently.

 

Of course, anyone who has been following

this blog realizes this is just another pathetic

attempt on my part to get people to visit this site.

 

For some reason, perhaps it's the season,

pumpkins doing anything lately are quite

popular.

Anchorage Daily News Endorses Obama

I just don't understand. Wasn't it McCain who was saying Palin was the most popular governor in America? Then why didn't the state's daily newspaper endorse her? I wonder if it had something to do with this recent Abuse of Power scandal she's involved in? Poor Palin...she isn't getting any respect!
