Here is a joke.  Anyone who is informed about the JFK murder knows it was LBJ, The CIA, and FBI.   The agencies are now trying to take Trump down.

American dreams are in danger.

Single-family homes, a key part of American dream, face uncertain future

Here is where they want you to live, since thousands are smuggled in every day in shipping containers.  You can live like rats.  They haven’t learned a thing since the first public housing project was built.

Wut San Francisco needs is some competent public officials.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Opposite the Setting Sun
Image Credit & Copyright: Roy Spencer

Explanation: On April 30, a Full Moon rose opposite the setting Sun. Its yellowish moonglow silhouettes a low tree-lined ridge along Lewis Mountain in this northeastern Alabama skyscape. Sharing the telephoto field-of-view opposite the Sun are Earth’s grey shadow, the pinkish Belt of Venus, and bright planet Jupiter. Nearing its own 2018 opposition on May 8, Jupiter is flanked by tiny pinpricks of light, three of its large Galilean moons. Europa lies just below Jupiter, and Ganymede and Callisto are just above. Closer and brighter, our own natural satellite appears to loom large but the Moon is physically a little smaller than Ganymede and Callisto, and slightly larger than water world Europa. Sharp eyes will also spot the trails of two jets across the clear evening sky.

Being more sensitive…

After a long day I stopped at a local watering hole and had a few libations. I was thinking about the events of the day and decided that I’m going to try to be more understanding, tolerant and exhibit more empathy and compassion for my fellow human beings.

While sitting there a young woman came into the bar.  She was crying and obviously distraught.
I asked her if she was alright and if there was anything I could do for her.

She calmed down a little and while fighting back tears she told me t
hat her cat died and that she wished she could have another one just like it.

So I asked her . . . “Why  would you want another dead cat?”

HOW MOSES GOT THE TEN COMMANDMENTS

 Framed Tablets of the Ten Commandments Print


God went to the Arabs and said,
‘I have Commandments for you that will make your lives better.’
 
The Arabs asked, ‘What are Commandments?’
And the Lord said, ‘They are rules for living.’
 
‘Can you give us an example?’
 
‘Thou shall not kill.’
 
‘Not kill? We’re not interested..’

So He went to the Blacks and said, ‘I have Commandments.’
 
The Blacks wanted an example, and the Lord said,
‘Honour thy Father and Mother.’
 
‘Father? We does’nt know who he be,
We’re not interested.’

Then He went to the Mexicans and said,
‘I have Commandments.’
 
The Mexicans also wanted an example, and the Lord said ‘Thou shall not steal.’
 
‘Not steal? We’re not interested.’

Then He went to the French and said,
‘I have Commandments.’ 
 
The French too wanted an example and the Lord said, ‘Thou shall not commit adultery.’
 
‘Sacre bleu!!! Not commit adultery? We’re not interested.’ 
 
Finally, He went to the Jews and said,
‘I have Commandments..’
 
‘Commandments?’ They said, ‘How much are they?’
 
‘They’re free.’
 
‘We’ll take 10.’ 
 
There. That, should piss off just about everybody…..

How Many Bricks?

Image result for images of confused mind

While visiting Annapolis, a lady tourist noticed several students on their hands and knees assessing the courtyard with pencils and clipboards in hand.

“What are they doing?” she asked the tour guide.

“Each year,” he replied with a grin, “the upperclassmen ask the freshmen how many bricks it took to finish paving this courtyard.”

When they were out of earshot of the freshmen, the curious lady asked the guide: “So, what’s the answer?”

The guide replied: “One.”
