Kunta Kinte Cat:    I don’t understand the issue.  Maybe we need a cable channel devoted just to slavery.   OF COURSE YOU WOULD HAVE TO SHOW THAT DEMOCRATS WERE THE ONES WHO OWNED SLAVES.   The Republicans, patriots, and Lincoln freed them.

The Millennials  are getting their freedom from their parent’s basements.

Speaking of fires, a little fire retardant is good for you.

Speaking of the Land of Saud/Bush they said thank you very much, but we will keep our entire country.  ( This is part of the new world order’s attempt to do away with borders ).

The Editor:   Did you ever find a song that translated from Farsi to English would show where women stand in much of Muslim Land, KKC ?

Free Cat:   I couldn’t find one, but except for cutting off the clitoris of 7 year old girls,  having women wear Burkas & Niqabs, and ” honor killings “,  this is the best one I could find.

Explanation: On July 11, the Juno spacecraft once again swung near the turbulent Jovian cloud tops. On its seventh orbital closest approach this perijove passage brought Juno within 3,500 kilometers of the Solar System’s largest planetary atmosphere. Near perijove the rotating JunoCam was able to record this stunning, clear view of one of Jupiter’s signature vortices. About 8,000 kilometers in diameter, the anticyclonic storm system was spotted in Jupiter’s North North Temperate Zone in the 1990s. That makes it about half the size of an older and better known Jovian anticyclone, the Great Red Spot, but only a little smaller than planet Earth. At times taking on reddish hues, the enormous storm system is fondly known as a North North Temperate Zone Little Red Spot.
