The name thing is obviously a cover-up and conspiracy of the highest order.

Speaking of Tarzan they have been advertising Edgar Rice John Carter movie. Burroughs

I want be going back through western Ohio anymore. Too many wreaks and the drivers in Cincinnati and Dayton can drive. There were 6 separate crashes on I-75 and 2 on I-71. I had to driver all the way around on 275. I did the same coming back. I am going to take the longer route and go through Indiana.

Glad you made it, Captain Nemo...it's snowing here and cold...22F...and a little windy.

I agree, Ben...the name thing....gotta be a conspiracy...what was "Cheetah's" birth certificate name? The news media never dug into that...why not? Who were they protecting? What did they know and when did they know it?

Will the real story come out now? What was Cheetah's role in the North African campaign in WW2? The alleged Nazi connection? The double agent theory? That story has been under wraps for six decades.....why the silence?

"yogi "Dum-Dum" Man: During Obama's swearing in, Chief Justice Roberts flubbed the oath, and Obama CORRECTED HIM!
It's on YouTube, I'm sure.
And, so what the President stays behind and deals with Washinton's most corrupt, called Congress? Bush authorized spending $239. a DAY bombing Iraq.
Obama flying separately doesn't hurt a fly.

Nemo: If traveling thru Indiana, stop in Indianapolis and look up my ex-wife.
Saying, "she's a loose woman" doesn't even come close.
Sleeping with the entire Secondary of the Colts is more accurate.

You should have understood, that 'monkey' was named Cheetah to make him think he was a tough fighter capacity so he could protect Tarzan. After all, cheetahs are fast and furious.

They used that same method on Barry Soetoro to make him think he was president of the USA.

I spy a banana peel. Was that the name of the dancer in Atlanta, Ben? ;- )

I hope to see you all tomorrow. I got to get some rest.

Maybe ten years ago d7, but not now. lol

Good night, Captain Nemo.

I see, it was the boy named Sue effect...sort of....like Tiger Woods?

Cheetah the Chimp was a known womanizer, according to old Hollywood tabloids..."Cheetah" was actually slang for "Cheater"....he slept around, according to reports.

Cheetah invested wisely and enjoyed a comfortable, somewhat pampered life....he lived to be eighty...in chimp years, that's like 150.

He left a sizable estate, according to the WSJ and Financial Times. His artwork alone is estimated to be worth millions.

No, dargent7,

Barry "correcting" his oath is not on YouTube because no one was in the room the next day when we was supposed to have sworn the oath correctly. Only two people were in that office, Barry Soetoro and the Chief Justice of the inferior Supreme Court. So I ask, how do we know he factually took that oath? We can't, and don't.

With his [so called] superior intelligence in politics, why did he not make that pledge correctly in public the day he was "sworn" in? Why didn't they just correct it when it happened, unless it was intentional?
