Just because……

I am dedicating a song to the Malleable Democrat Presidential Contenders today. Just because….they are all incapable of commitment. They trot out to the town hall meetings and make grand promises to the audience. Then the meeting ends and the public debate and analysis begins. Then they WALK BACK and APOLOGIZE for any part of their speech that does not score high enough on Morning Joe’s Democrat Stupidity Scale. That is their  (a new word for you) Political Adjustment. They walk back more than Michael Jackson moon walked. Just like the balloons shown above, they are collections of hot air that will eventually deflate and fall back to reality. Here’s their Song….

The Editor:   What’s up with the motto,   LL ?

Trademark Cat:  I have a motto for The Sphinx.   I am going to plagiarize part of Cher’s quote and use it for a motto.

Hill-whale stole part of a Winston Churchill speech.

The people who believe in the Constitution are going to use this speech to fight the infidel Democrats.

Check your ground beef.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Pan-STARRS Across the Lagoon
Image Data Credit: Pan-STARRS, Eric Coles, Martin PughProcessing: Eric Coles

Explanation: Ridges of glowing interstellar gas and dark dust clouds inhabit the turbulent, cosmic depths of the Lagoon Nebula. Also known as M8, the bright star forming region is about 5,000 light-years distant. But it still makes for a popular stop on telescopic tours of the constellation Sagittarius, toward the center of our Milky Way Galaxy. Dominated by the telltale red emission of ionized hydrogen atoms recombining with stripped electrons, this stunning view of the Lagoon is over 100 light-years across. At its center, the bright, compact, hourglass shape is gas ionized and sculpted by energetic radiation and extreme stellar winds from a massive young star. In fact, the many bright stars of open cluster NGC 6530 drift within the nebula, just formed in the Lagoon several million years ago. Broadband image data from Pan-STARRS (Panoramic Survey Telescope & Rapid Response System) was combined with narrowband data from amateur telescopes to create this wide and deep portrait of the Lagoon Nebula.

What are the primary generations today?

Correction: The oldest generation is called the Greatest Generation. They survived the Great Depression and saved the world from Tojo, Hitler, Joe Stalin, and FDR.

I am grateful to an alert reader for pointing this out to me. Our new and improved (yeah, right) modern world would hate to give the parents of the baby boomers any credit. After all, they only sacrificed everything, including their own lives in wars to defend our America. They are indeed, The Greatest Generation!

-Sheila Tolley-

Currently, five generations make up our society. Each of those five generations has an active role in the marketplace. Depending on the specific workplace, the workforce includes four to five generations. Here are the birth years for each generation:

  • Gen Z, iGen, or Centennials: Born 1996 – TBD
  • Millennials or Gen Y: Born 1977 – 1995
  • Generation X: Born 1965 – 1976
  • Baby Boomers: Born 1946 – 1964
  • Traditionalists or Silent Generation: The Greatest Generation: Born 1945 and before
