Yeah, I am running late tonight. For some reason I kept telling myself that it was a Thursday. Well anyway, I have got lots of cartoons for you tonight.
This first one is very clever…see how long it takes you to catch it. Cagle Post – Political Cartoons & Commentary – » General Petraeus
I will stick with the Housewives of Mac Dill AFB…and the Generals and Spies who love them…
I didn’t think that cartoon was too funny, but I do love that Carly Simon tune however.
Now, that cartoon is way better than that movie Pillow Talk with Rock Hudson and Doris Day.
This next one is funny…Cagle Post – Political Cartoons & Commentary – » Afghaniscandal
On to another take on the scandal, this one is from the viewpoints of a couple of ol’ queers…Cagle Post – Political Cartoons & Commentary – » Heterosexuals in the military

There was a great post by Dakinikat today, and it had a very profound ending. This next cartoon accents her post so well.
Peace and Revenge…hmmmm.
This next one is one of my favorites tonight…and it deals with the Twitter War: Cagle Post – Political Cartoons & Commentary – » Tweet War
Ah, and what about the new Succession talk? Well, the cartoonist have been busy with that topic too. Cagle Post – Political Cartoons & Commentary – » Government Check
I think Bill Plante used to be a cartoonist for Chattanooga’s newspaper back in the mid 2000’s, so he has first knowledge of this kind of mentality.
Wow, this is a long post…I think I will split the Friday Nite Lite into two….so let’s end with a cartoon to make us all laugh.
Well, the second batch is coming up…be sure to check back later tonight or early tomorrow morning.
This is an open thread.
<———– Hmmm, I thought Rubens was Flemish?
Gotta love that Rubenesque Pug…
I honestly don’t have much for you tonight. My head hurts, and the Relpax ain’t doing the trick this time. The only things I have for you tonight is this weird story out of Belize…and the news that “We the People” are petitioning the White House to succeed from the nation.
First the movie of the week drama making headlines on the Techno News sites. Exclusive: John McAfee Wanted for Murder (Updated)
Antivirus pioneer John McAfee is on the run from murder charges, Belize police say. According to Marco Vidal, head of the national police force’s Gang Suppression Unit, McAfee is a prime suspect in the murder of American expatriate Gregory Faull, who was gunned down Saturday night at his home in San Pedro Town on the island of Ambergris Caye.
Details remain sketchy so far, but residents say that Faull was a well-liked builder who hailed originally from California Florida. The two men had been at odds for some time. Last Wednesday, Faull filed a formal complaint against McAfee with the mayor’s office, asserting that McAfee had fired off guns and exhibited “roguish behavior.” Their final disagreement apparently involved dogs.
Read the rest of that story, far out! I would imagine that the dude who brought us McAfee antivirus has paranoid tendencies already, but John McAfee seems to be getting high on bath salts…and other “stuff.” Ooof!
For those who may be high on a variety of things like, racism, crazy, anger and idiotness…I bring you: ‘We the People’ Petitions Filed in Nineteen States Seeking Permission to Secede from the Union
In the aftermath of last week’s presidential election, residents in at least nineteen states have put up petitions on the government’s “We the People” petitioning website seeking the right to secede from the rest of the country.
While the petitions themselves may not be significant, the reaction could be.
Petitions for secession filed from Louisiana and Texas have already received well over 10,000 signatures. Per the website’s own rules, petitions that garner 25,000 signatures or more within 30 days require a response from the Obama administration.
Other states in which residents have expressed an interest in going their own way include Kentucky, Montana, North Dakota, Mississippi, North Carolina, Florida, Georgia, New York, New Jersey, Colorado, Arkansas, South Carolina, and Missouri.
As unilateral secession was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, it remains to be seen if this movement is more than a toothless temper tantrum thrown by armchair revolutionaries.
Armchair revolutionaries? Rich assholes with rodent pelts for hair? Neo-cons looking for the south to rise again? Sugar and flour hording Preppers saving themselves from Obamageddon?
Here is one response to the secessionist from Atlanta Journal Constitution: Dear people signing secessionist petitions . . . | Kyle Wingfield
Stop. Just stop.
I’ve just got one thing to say to them…
That is all I can get out tonight…have a pleasant evening!
This is a muthafukkin’ loooozzzzer open thread…
