Here is how the Democrats have celebrated.


The Editor:   What is happening, LL ?

Be Bop Cat:   Things are popping like the Fourth of July.  First on the list, Trump asked The Attorney General to resign.

Here is the Don telling Jeff that he isn’t a war time A.G.

CNN is still a vipers nest of Communist

Personally, I think Jim Acosta is a spoiled brat and bully,  like  the kid who screams and pouts trying to get his way.  I would have pulled his White House pass a year ago.  He is rude, crude, has no class or manners, and is a good fit for CNN.  

TE:  What about the elections, BBC ?

There are too many recounts going on to give an accurate update, check your local papers/news.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Mars in the Loop

Explanation: This composite of images spaced some 5 to 9 days apart, from late April (bottom right) through November 5 (top left), traces the retrograde motion of ruddy-colored Mars through planet Earth’s night sky. To connect the dots and dates in this 2018 Mars retrograde loop, just slide your cursor over the picture (and check out this animation). But Mars didn’t actually reverse the direction of its orbit. Instead, the apparent backwards motion with respect to the background stars is a reflection of the motion of the Earth itself. Retrograde motion can be seen each time Earth overtakes and laps planets orbiting farther from the Sun, the Earth moving more rapidly through its own relatively close-in orbit. On July 27, Mars was near its favorable 2018 parihelic opposition, when Mars was closest to the Sun in its orbit while also opposite the Sun in Earth’s sky. For that date, the frame used in this composite was taken during the total lunar eclipse.
