Invisible Martians in Arizona for Obama

Waiting For A Lift via Flying Saucer

Invisible Martians on their wild steads await flying-saucer transport from Chino Valley to Camp Verde, where they look forward to going door to door to get the vote out for President Barack Obama…


Three Sonorans





The sheriff was sitting in the locked jail cell

with the key in his pocket

chewing on cactus &

gulping down hot coffee


Some one knocked on the door of

the Sheriff’s Office

“Come in!” chortled Sheriff Isom Dart

from the safety of the cell


Another Martian.

Before the creature said anything

Dart erupted, “I’m already

registered to vote!”


The creature from Mars peered at Dart

quizically with its third eye

& beeped, “But are you going to

vote for Obama?”


“Of course I’m voting for

Obama!” cried forth the

harried lawman.  “You critters

are driving me crazy!”


The green man wrapped a tentacle around

a jail-cell bar &

peered into the gloom

at the Earthman


The Martian said, “It’s best for the galaxy, the solar system,

my planet, your planet & your nation that

President Obama

serves 4 more years in the White House”


Sheriff Dart almost said

something but didn’t

the Martian turned around

   dissolved right thru the wall…

Remember the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords…


U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords, Democrat:

“We know that silence equals consent when atrocities are committed against innocent men, women, and children. We know that indifference equals complicity when bigotry, hatred and intolerance are allowed to take root. And we know that education and hope are the most effective ways to combat ignorance and despair.”


Tucson, Arizona, Jan. 8, 2011


On January 8, 2011, a mass shooting occurred near Tucson, Arizona. Nineteen people were shot, six of them fatally, with one other person injured at the scene.  The shooting occurred during an open meeting that U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords was holding with members of her constituency in a Safeway parking lot.  Those killed in the incident include United States District Court for the District of Arizona Chief Judge John Roll, one of Rep. Giffords’s staffers, and a little girl.  News reports identified the target of the attack as Giffords, a Democrat representing Arizona’s 8th congressional district.  She was shot through the head at point-blank rang.  Her medical condition was initially described as “critical”.  She survived ~ barely.

A 22-year-old Tucson man, Jared Lee Loughner, was arrested at the scene.  Federal prosecutors have filed five charges against him, including the attempted assassination of a member of Congress, and the assassination of a federal judge. Both of those charges carry the possibility of the death penalty.  On May 25, 2011, Loughner was found by a judge to be incompetent to stand trial based on two medical evaluations.  He’s still incarcerated and, as of this writing, involuntarily sedated.

Rawclyde adds:

Some people, mostly Republicans, dismiss the massacre as the mere act of a deranged individual.  But when Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) asks her supporters to get “armed and dangerous,” and another campaigning Republican suggests “Second Amendment remedies,” and Giffords’ rival even holds an event offering his supporters a chance to shoot an M16 at pictures of the congresswoman, and then Giffords and 18 others are shot down, six fatally, well, I beg to defer.  If you’re running for office or a member of the media and talking like a goon, you’re encouraging the United States of America to become Goon Nation instead of the democracy that more savvy people will it to be…
