I never watch cartoons except as a child every Saturday morning. This Saturday morning 11/9/13 it just so happens. The channel just below free speech television is the cartoon channel. SpongeBob SquarePants happen to be on! I'll investigate. The story began with SpongeBob's boss takingBob to a cheapskates and Penny pinchers convention. Bob's boss was about to win an award. When they found out that the lobster, Bob's boss had done something nice for his employees. He was immediately disqualified from the competition and lost the award. So with hat in hand so to speak. SpongeBob and the lobster head back to the motel room to pack and this is where the pennypinching really turns in the theft. It started with the soap and towels then went to bathroom fixtures they were plundering it all. They were destroying their room the place they lived, another man's business. Exaggerated! They even destroyed the wall. Laughingly. The Penny pinchers and cheapskates are funding people like Sarah Palin and the tea party to plunder and destroy our country. All the while there pointing their pasty fingers at anyone but the face in the mirror. Penny pinchers and cheapskates can be tyrants. This was another right-wing blunder trying to co-opt a politically sensitive cartoon to their own means. Ouch! If I knew the name of the episode I would pass it on. It aired Saturday morning Central time 11/ 9/13 on dish the cartoon channel.

Tom can you place a link to the rad counter site on your page. May be overlooked it. I will look again. Love the Show!

In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
