Y'all In This Together? Eh?

Greetings, yes it me, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar!  I can hardly believe what's happening in Britain.  Are the North American humans taking over?
For instance, look at the chap in the above photo.  It seems he's waiting for an alien spacecraft to land. Maybe it flew him over to Britain.  Yes, I've found out that Mark Carney, from Canada, is now the Governor of the Bank of England.  I know my human made mention of this before and I've decided to see how he's doing.

Mr. Carney is going to try and get the British economy stimulated.  Along with the opening of thousands upon thousands of Tim Hortons restaurants in the UK, he's apparently going to bring in the "feel good factor" by having National Hockey League games broadcast live on British television.  Then British folks can get real excited and say things such as, "I turned on the telly to watch a fight and an ice hockey game broke out..." 
It's also rumoured that Mark will be introducing "The Loonie" to Britain.  No, not Stephen Harper, the Prime Minister of Canada.  Yes, as in the Canadian one dollar coin with a "Loon" on it.  Mark's philosophy, "Just say lots of 'ehs' everyday!" 
You might have realised that, Jim Messina, the campaign manager for Barack Obama, has been hired by the Conservative Party in Britain for the next general election.  Yes, that's Jim in the above photo looking like he's crapped himself.  The election has to be held by no later than May 7, 2015.
Imagine the conversation with the above buffoon aka David Cameron, aka Prime Minister of Britain and Jim Messina.  They talk campaign propaganda.  Sorry, they talk campaign strategy.   No, they talk campaign propaganda.  The above campaign slogan in the photo was suggested by David Cameron.

David says to Jim, "I'm a big fan of your music and that stuff you did with Kenny Loggins was heavy rock, dude!"  Jim responds, "I'm not that Jim Messina!  The number of folks I've had to explain that to!  Anyhow, Mr. Cameron, we need a strategy to get you elected again.  How about something like, "Y'all in this together."?"  "I've already tried that, Jim." replied David.  "We called it, "We're all in this together!"  What I actually meant was that we'd target the poor, the vulnerable, the sick, the disabled, those with mental health issues, to pay for the mistakes of the incompetent fortunate."

"Okay, this is gonna' be tough one!  You'll have to pay me even more money.  Yes sir, money before morals." Jim stated.  "I shall see what I can do." said David.  "Oh, by the way, are you going to have a reunion with Kenny Loggins?", said the buffoon.  And David, the buffoon. starts to sing, "And it's all because you mama don't dance and your daddy don't rock and roll..."
The chap on the extreme right of the above photo is Prime Minister David Cameron.  The chap on the left?  I have no idea.
May 7, 2015.  The dawn of a new reality in Britain.  A land where the ideals of an all different, all equal diverse society will be realised.

  44. You are so funny, Penny. Jim does look like he's crapped himself. Do you think he finally realized that...his mama don't dance and his daddy don't rock 'n roll?

    1. Hi Robyn,

      Thank you, my human friend. Jim crapped himself when he realised he would have to sing with Kenny Loggins....."Out of the car long hair
      Oowee - You're coming with me
      Said the local police
      And it's all because your mama don't dance and your daddy don't rock and roll..."

      The only thing they help is themselves. Okay and the bankers who caused this crap.

  46. I never go political - but seeing as it's you and I love you, man (paws to wipe tears) I do have to say I am, for the first time in my life (18+) AB-SO-LOOT-LY pissed off with all politicians.

    I was a member of one U.S. party, but the last two years has caused excessive gas, burping and other nasty bodily things - simply because I can't trust ANYONE.

    They're all a bunch of Bankers.

    Thanks for letting me vote :)

    1. Human Mazza n'stuff,

      I tried not to go pawlitical, but with the way things are, we need a change and fast. And now you are pissed off. Time for a revolution, my human friend.

      It would be nice to think that there was more than just two main parties in the USA. It's like having a sports league with only two teams.

      A bunch of Wankers....

      Your vote has been cast and I thank you.

  47. Accounting has taken over so much of the world, hasn't it?

    They did a recent poll in the U.S.: more than 57% of people would be okay with a wholesale "booting" of EVERYONE in politics. A massive 52-card pick-up of the whole system. :-)

    1. Hi Pearl,

      Indeed and accounting that takes money from the poor. Where the hell is Robin Hood?

      Get rid of the lot of them! And chuck those cards and see where they lay. Get rid of the Jokers in the pack...

  51. Penny! I'd vote for you if I could. I'd sure like to know how your human got that campaign poster of you up there. He did a great job.
    Can I please move into one of the houses in your header picture? I'd love to live with that view. *sigh*

    1. Hi River Fairchild,

      We shall have you take out British citizenship. We could use a few more votes. My human is one of my many campaign managers and he shall be putting up more posters. I shall tell him you think he did a great job on that poster.

      I shall see if one of those houses is available :)

      I'm smarter about politics or pawlitics than anybody who is elected in Britain. I am getting the campaign in full swing by the beginning of 2014.

  53. I wonder what many of your compatriots feel about these invaders into your land. Maybe your slogan, Penny, can be, "Born in the land, for the land!" (You are a native, aren't you?) and maybe have a photo of yourself enjoying the land with other homebredians.

    1. Hi Nancy,

      My "compawtriots" are finding it rather amusing that a Canadian is running the finances. We consider Jim Messina has been brought in as a desperation move by a corrupt, evil party known as the Conservatives. I am a native of all lands. Born of the land of hope. And a photo of all of us enjoying a worldwide land of hope. I hope :)

  56. I'm so glad your country is as stupid as our country. There's always comfort in knowing that we have so much in common. And now we can watch as Jim Messina feeds promises through your Conservative Party's candidates, then express delight when the winners do the 180. Let's see, I believe I have a quote from that guy eating a good old American hot dog in the photo above. Something about reducing the budget, I believe. Hmm. So far he's outspent any other president in the history of this country. Is Britain at all interested in sending us a Queen or something? If Penny does run, call me. I'll do a campaign fund raiser.

    1. Hi Lee,

      Ah yes, a shared stupidity. Kinda warms your heart, or not. Now Jim Messina can do propaganda for a right wing party. Hey, money talks, evidently. I actually know that those two guys stuffing hotdogs both want to reduce the budget, the deficit. Of course, they do that by spending more money on those who don't need it. Incidentally, the two idiots in that photo were at a NBA basketball game. Yes, basketball, invented by a Canadian, eh. It gets even more bizarre. You can have the lil' ol' Queen! She's costing us a fortune. Besides you just lurve the lil' ol' Queen. Your pawtential, um potential campaign fund raising would be warmly welcome, my famous human friend.
