My Favorite Photos: Mr. C's Betta Fish

Like I mentioned earlier, my nephews recently got their very first pets and while Mr. K has a frog, his little brother Mr. C has a fish.

My nephew isn't great with names though, as the blue male betta is called Blueredyellow.

The Fisher King (1991 Film) Review

John Boehner Says George W. Bush Would Have Punched Putin

John Boehner never passes a chance to criticize President Obama, and at a recent event he asked a crowd if Vladimir Putin would have invaded Ukraine if George W. Bush had been president. Apparently the Speaker of House knows what Bush would have done by saying "Even Putin is smart enough to know that Bush would have punched him in the nose in about 10 seconds!". Except Bush did very little when Putin's Russian troops invaded Georgia in 2008 and won the Russo-Georgian War.
