The Editor:  What/who is vile, LL ?

Independent Cat:  Our loyal readers should make sure they clicked  (  more ) in the previous definition,   The loudest yelling Democrats, MSM, late night comedians, and movie stars are vile.

Here is another vile creep.  He expects to hide behind science.  GMO’s are killers.  They enable Roundup to be sprayed on seeds.  It stays with the grown plants and we eat them.  Autism ?   GMO’s are about as safe as cigarettes and nuclear power which are also killers, that were touted as the best thing since sliced bread.

Here is a vile creature who had a CHINESE SPY as her driver and gofer for twenty years while she was on the Senate Intelligence Committee.  What a creep.  It was covered up for five ( 5 ) years after the discovery.

I would give this traitor a carry-on airline bag and tell her to fill it up with money and banish her and her family from America.

Launch of the Parker Solar Probe
Image Credit & Copyright: John Kraus

Explanation: When is the best time to launch a probe to the Sun? The now historic answer — which is not a joke because this really happened this past weekend — was at night. Night, not only because NASA’s Parker Solar Probe‘s (PSP) launch window to its planned orbit occurred, in part, at night, but also because most PSP instruments will operate in the shadow of its shield — in effect creating its own perpetual night near the Sun. Before then, years will pass as the PSP sheds enough orbital energy to approach the Sun, swinging past Venus seven times. Eventually, the PSP is scheduled to pass dangerously close to the Sun, within 9 solar radii, the closest ever. This close, the temperature will be 1,400 degrees Celsius on the day side of the PSP’s Sun shield — hot enough to melt many forms of glass. On the night side, though, it will be near room temperature. A major goal of the PSP’s mission to the Sun is to increase humanity’s understanding of the Sun’s explosions that impact Earth’s satellites and power grids. Pictured is the night launch of the PSP aboard the United Launch AlliancesDelta IV Heavy rocket early Sunday morning.

Make That Three…..

Image result for cartoon pic of a cowboy with 3 beers

A cowboy, who just moved to Colorado from Texas, walks into a bar and orders three mugs of Bud. He sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more.
.
The bartender approaches and tells the cowboy: “You know, a mug goes flat after I draw it.  It would taste better if you bought one at a time.”
.
The cowboy replies:”Well, you see, I have two brothers.  One is an Airborne Ranger, the other is a Navy Seal, both serving overseas somewhere.  When we all left our home in Texas, we promised that we’d drink this way to remember the days when we drank together. So I’m drinking one beer for each of my brothers and one for myself.”
.
The bartender admits that this is a nice custom and leaves it there.
.
The cowboy becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way. He orders three mugs and drinks them in turn.
.
One day, he comes in and only orders two mugs. All the regulars take notice and fall silent.
When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender says:”I don’t want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your loss.”
.
The cowboy looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns in his eyes and he laughs. “Oh, no, everybody’s just fine,” he explains, “It’s just that my wife and I joined the church and I had to quit drinking.”
.
“Hasn’t affected my brothers though.”

THE SPHINX—INDIVIDUAL EXCEPTIONALISM

The Editor:  Was Obama right about individual exceptionalism, LL ?

Average Cat:  Obama is a Social/Communist/Fascist greedy fool.  He wouldn’t know exceptionalism if he found it under his prayer rug.   Here are two ( 2 )  examples, one is a ten year old, the other took a failing football program to the top of college football.

TE:   Are you supporting Alabama Football, AC ?

AC:  I support the lions and wildcats.  Alabama is my emergency team  The athletic personnel are well paid, the fans get to see a winner, and student athletics get a free, good, and healthy diet.  What’s not to like.  You just need the right man for the job.

M86 in the Central Virgo Cluster
Image Credit & Copyright: Mark Hanson, Stan Watson Obs.

Explanation: Is there a bridge of gas connecting these two great galaxies? Quite possibly, but it is hard to be sure. M86 on the upper left is a giant elliptical galaxy near the center of the nearby Virgo Cluster of galaxies. Our Milky Way Galaxy is falling toward the Virgo Cluster, located about 50 million light years away. To the lower right of M86 is unusual spiral galaxy NGC 4438, which, together with angular neighbor NGC 4435, are known as the Eyes Galaxies (also Arp 120). Featured here is one of the deeper images yet taken of the region, indicating that red-glowing gas surrounds M86 and seemingly connects it to NGC 4438. The image spans about the size of the full moon. It is also known, however, that cirrus gas in our own Galaxy is superposed in front of the Virgo cluster, and observations of the low speed of this gas seem more consistent with this Milky Way origin hypothesis. A definitive answer may come from future research, which may also resolve how the extended blue arms of NGC 4435 were created.

A tad bit of reality….

                                                                    Image result for cartoon pic of chicago bears quarterback

The coach had put together the perfect team for the Chicago Bears. The only thing missing was a good quarterback. He scouted and scouted, but couldn’t find a quarterback who could give the Bears a shot at a Super Bowl win.

 Then one night, while watching the news, he saw a war-zone scene in the West Bank. In one corner of the background, he spotted a young Israeli soldier with a truly incredible arm. He threw a hand grenade straight into a 15th story window 100 yards away.

 KABOOM!

 He threw another hand grenade 75 yards away, right into a chimney.

 KA-BLOOEY!

 Then, he threw another at a passing car going 90 mph.

 BULLS-EYE!

 “I’ve got to get this guy!” the coach said to himself. “He has the perfect arm!”

 So, he brings him to the States and teaches him the great game of football. And, the Bears go on to win the Super Bowl.

The young man is hailed as a great hero of football and when the coach asks him what he wants, all the young man wants is to call his mother.

 “Mom”, he says into the phone, “I just won the Super Bowl !”

 “I don’t want to talk to you”, the old woman says. “You are not my son!”

 “I don’t think you understand, Mom,” the young man pleads.

 “I’ve won the greatest sporting event in the world. I’m here among thousands of my adoring fans.”

 “No! Let me tell you!” his mother retorts. “At this very moment, there are gunshots all around us. The neighborhood is a pile of rubble. Your two brothers were beaten within an inch of their lives last week, and I have to keep your sister in the house so she doesn’t get raped!” The old lady pauses, and then tearfully says……”I’ll never forgive you for making us move to Chicago!”

Safety Cat:  For our loyal readers who live near messy neighbors,  ( DEET )  is more or less safe.

Your vote isn’t safe.  Crooks are always vigilant. The safest vote is a ( PAPER  BALLOT ).  They can be thrown away, but not lost in an electronic void or hacked.
