THE SPHINX—-ANOTHER LEAK

The Editor:  Is this a big leak, LL ?

Seig Heil Cat:   It sure is, this is from our spy in the losing Clinton campaign.   The Nazi’s were the Social Democrats in Germany.  Anyway, the Democrats on the political yardstick are about the same as Nazi’s.   The only difference is they can’t make the trains run on time.  Ask the Nazi in charge of New York City.

They need to bring back Bernard Goetz.   At least he gave innocent riders hope of not getting killed on the way to work.  The Dems are good at giving you an easy treat to get your vote, and then forgetting about their promise.

THE SPHINX—ANTIFA, ALTRIGHT, ALTLEFT

The Editor:   What is going on with all the new names in politics, LL ?

Constitution Cat:   I can’t keep up with them.  Here are some links.  The best that I can make out is that, (antifa is a loosely knit bunch of criminals who would rather burn down a college that eat ” Dunkin’.”

http://fortune.com/2017/08/08/dunkin-donuts-name-change-new-rebrand-coffee-starbucks/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antifa_(United_States)

The altright is similarly prone to violence and anarchy.  They would rather bash Jews, blacks, or any other minority in the head than smoke dope.  The broad categories are klu-kluxers,  skin-heads, and other small groups.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alt-right

The altleft is no better.  They are Communist, Nazis, and other God, Country, Family, and Constitution hating creeps.  They would rather take away your freedom of speech than have sex.  See Waters, Schumer, Pocahontas, Hit-lery, Pelosi, Obama,  and new entry Keith Ellison.   Have you ever seen one of these protest the altleft violence ?

The altleft wants California to secede from the union.  One problem is, it has been tried before.  Another problem is that 47.7 % of California is owned by America not California.

Total Solar Eclipse of 1979

Explanation: From cold, clear skies over Riverton, Manitoba, Canada, planet Earth, the solar corona surrounds the silhouette of the New Moon in this telescopic snapshot of the total solar eclipse of February 26, 1979. Thirty eight years ago, it was the last total solar eclipse visible from the contiguous United States. The narrow path of totality ran through the northwestern states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and North Dakota before crossing into Canadian provinces Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec. Following the upcoming August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse crossing the U.S. from coast to coast, an annular solar eclipse will be seen in the continental United States on October 14, 2023, visible along a route from Northern California to Florida. Then, the next total solar eclipse to touch the continental U.S. will track across 13 states from from Texas to Maine on April 8, 2024.

THE SPHINX—-MALLS AND OTHER THINGS

The Editor:    What is going on with the malls, LL ?

http://www.france24.com/en/20170813-change-or-die-american-malls-confront-amazon-era

Master Card Cat:   Some will stay open to give people on SSRI drugs a place to target practice.

The closed malls could be used by the police in New York to store dead bodies instead of using the break-rooms of the transit authority.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/14/nyregion/for-18-hours-a-cabbie-sat-dead-in-front-seat.html

If they did this it might keep some of the rats from eating babies.   The morons in San Franstupido could use the vacant malls for the homeless.  It sure beats this idea.  You can’t even get building permits in San Franexpensiveo for $ 50,000.  Besides, who wants a mentally ill homeless person or a drug addict living in your back yard.

Here is the best answer to this problem.  If the newly relocated homeless become dangerous you could move them to the Governor’s Mansion, Mayor’s House, or Maxine Water’s back yard.

Maxine is a good spokesperson for the poor.

Perseids over the Pyrénées
Image Credit & Copyright: Jean-Francois Graffand

Explanation: This mountain and night skyscape stretches across the French Pyrenees National Park on August 12, near the peak of the annual Perseid meteor shower. The multi-exposure panoramic view was composed from the Col d’Aubisque, a mountain pass, about an hour before the bright gibbous moon rose. Centered is a misty valley and lights from the region’s Gourette ski station toward the south. Taken over the following hour, frames capturing some of the night’s long bright perseid meteors were aligned against the backdrop of stars and Milky Way.

THE SPHINX—-NEWS ITEMS

The Editor:   Why do cats and dogs save families from fires, LL ?

Smoke Cat:    Mainly because the ignorant people get drunk and throw lit cigarettes around like Cajuns throw beads at Mardi Gras.  They are too stupid, like Maxine Waters, to buy fire alarms or even batteries.   We wake these drunks and dope addicts up to save our own lives.  I am an expert on fires,  if it wasn’t for fires my human family would have never paid off a mortgage.  The only stock they own is Zippo and Bic.
