Obama Weighs Options In Afghanistan
Pressure is mounting on President Obama to make a decision on the future of Afghanistan.
Here are the options currently being considered:
Not only learn the lessons of Vietnam, but apply them as well
Visit; act fascinated by their rugs
Remove every American soldier; see if fighting continues
Legalize gambling, as that's worked well domestically
Thunderdome-style battle to the death between Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal and Afghanistan Taliban leader Mullah Omar
Call the Taliban pretending to be the Prophet Muhammad and tell them to stop ambushing American soldiers
Announce you're raising troop levels by 15,000, then pull everybody out, then come back with a half million soldiers, in the process convincing al-Qaeda that you're loco and not to be messed with
Arm and finance a group of religious fighters
Back the murderous drug-dealing warlord with the most government officials in his pocket
so, last night i shecked outside to see if the possum was back. nope. no possum, but BUT something did able into the yard. a PLUMP SKUNK! obviously walked thru the alley and sort of stubled down the stairs. sniffed the lawn and then made his was to the neighbor's fence and disappeared.

RANDOM 341 OBJECT
ANTIQUE Cast Brass PLAQUE Nude FIGURE, ART DECO Breasts
I just discovered this gal last week. Even though I can’t be certain, I think I know what drew me to her.
Sometimes a gal feels like wearing just one piece of clothing. I think this gal made the right choice: A neck scarf.
Obviously, she was made to be mounted. See the hole where her cute little bellybutton should be? (Oops. Sorry.)
She has beautiful long legs. They start at the floor and go all the way up to where they should, and that’s where they end.
