Brits….you gotta love ’em

I had a flat tire on the M 31 yesterday; so, I pulled over,

got out of the car and opened my boot.

I took out my cardboard men, unfolded them

and stood them at the rear of my car facing oncoming

traffic. They look so lifelike you wouldn’t believe it!

Just as I had hoped, cars started slowing down looking

at the men which made it much safer for me to work on

the side of the road.

People honked and waved, and it wasn’t long before a

police car pulled up behind me.

He wanted to know what the heck I was doing so I

calmly explained that I was changing my flat.

He told me he could see that, but demanded to know

what the heck my cardboard men were doing standing

at the rear of my car.

I couldn’t believe he didn’t know! So I told him … 

Well, I explained to the angry Policeman … 

They’re my Emergency Flashers!!!! 

I go to court in AUG

(Damn Police. No sense of humor.)

Loser Colin Kaepernick

Isn’t it a blessing that Loser Colin Kaepernick does not stand for America?

The darling douche of the left, Colin “I can’t get a job” Kaepernick is at it again.

Nike was set to release some new shoes with the “Betsy Ross Flag” in time for the 4th of July.

So, because it’s something American, perpetual loser Colin Kaepernick tells Nike that, because the flag was made during a period of time when slavery existed, they should not release them. So, not only does he think things are bad in this country now (and they’re not), he now has a problem with anything which happened during a time when something bad existed.

Kaepernick’s stupidity meter just dimed out.

But, and as hard as this is to comprehend, he’s far from being the only idiot here. Inexplicably, the powers-that-be at Nike have stupidly allowed this out of work, POS has-been to dictate what their multi-billion dollar corporation does. They send retailers and distributors an e-mail saying that the shoes need to be sent back but, of course, once that word gets out, pairs of these shoes start disappearing.

I’ve not been able to confirm it, but one report I heard said there was a pair of these up on eBay and bidding had already eclipsed $2,000.

Nike is suffering a lot of backlash over this, and rightfully so. Even the Great State of Arizona, who was negotiating a deal to bring Nike into the city of Goodyear, has stepped in. The Governor, a proud and good American named Doug Ducey, has ordered a financial incentive package for Nike to be withdrawn over Nike’s decision to pull the shoes at Kaepernick’s behest.

What’s more mind-boggling than the fact that Kaepernick just cost Nike that incentive package is the fact that Nike allowed him to do it.

I would have to surmise that Colin Kaepernick has pretty much just guaranteed himself that he will never again play in the NFL…

Let’s Ponder Some Thoughts….

Life is not a fairy tale.  If you lose your shoe at midnight, you’re drunk. 

If women are upset at Trump’s naughty words, who bought 80 million copies of 50 Shades of Gray?

Jim Comey answered, “I don’t know,” “I don’t recall,” and “I don’t remember” 236 times while under oath.  But he remembered enough to write a book.

President Trump should nominate Hillary Clinton for the next opening on the supreme court. Then he can finally get her investigated.

Not one feminist has defended Sarah Sanders. It seems women’s rights only matter if those women are liberal.

No Border Walls. No voter ID laws.  You figured it out yet?

Chelsea Clinton got out of college and got a job at NBC that paid $900,000 per year. Her mom flies around the country speaking out about white privilege.

SOCIALISM: An idea that is so good that it has to be mandatory Bernie Sanders walks into a bar and yells… “Free drinks for everyone!” looks around and says “Who’s buying?”

What is the difference between an Illegal immigrant and E.T.?  E.T. learned to speak English and went home.

And just like that they went from being against foreign interference in our elections to allowing non-citizens to vote in our elections.

Watching the left come up with schemes to “catch Trump” is like watching Wile E. Coyote trying to catch the Road Runner.

President Trump’s wall cost less than the Obamacare website. Let that sink in, America.

We are one election away from open borders, socialism, gun  confiscation, and full term abortion nationally. We are fighting evil.

They sent more troops and armament to arrest Roger Stone than they sent to defend Benghazi.

60 years ago, Venezuela was 4th on the world economic freedom index. Today, they are 179th and their citizens are dying of starvation. In only 10 years, Venezuela was destroyed by democratic socialism.

Russia donated $0.00 to the Trump campaign. Russia donated $145,600,000 to the Clinton Foundation. But Trump was the one investigated!

Nancy Pelosi invited illegal aliens to the State of the Union. President Trump Invited victims of illegal aliens to the State of the Union. Let that sink in.

A socialist is basically a communist who doesn’t have the power to take everything from their citizens at gunpoint … Yet!

How do you walk 3000 miles across Mexico without food or support and show up at our border 100 pounds overweight and with a cellphone?

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez wants to ban cars, ban planes, give out universal income and thinks socialism works. She calls Donald Trump crazy.

Bill Clinton paid $850,000 to Paula Jones To get her to go away. I don’t remember the FBI raiding his lawyer’s office.

I wake up every day and I am grateful that Hillary Clinton is not the president of the United States of America.

The same media that told me Hillary Clinton had a 95% chance of winning now tells me Trump’s approval ratings are low.

“The problem with socialism is that sooner or later you run out of other people’s money.”— Margaret Thatcher

Maxine Waters opposes voter ID laws; She thinks that they are racist. You need to have a photo ID to attend her town hall meetings.

 

Trump — They’re not after me. They’re after you. I’m just in their way.

Covered Bridge of the Day

The Cedar or Casper Covered Bridge appeared on the cover of the book The Bridges of Madison County and in the Clint Eastwood / Meryl Streep movie of the same name. The original 77 ft’ long Town lattice truss bridge was built over Cedar Creek, near its current location, northeast of Winterset, Iowa by Harvey Pierce Jones in 1883. It was destroyed by arsonists Sept. 3, 2002. A second bridge was built in 2004 but it too was destroyed by arsonists Apr. 15, 2017. The debris shown in the first  photo is all that remained when I visited the bridge in 2018.

When I visited the site a few weeks ago to see if work had begun to replace the bridge I was delighted to discover that construction was essentially complete. These photos show the brand new bridge.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

In the Shadow of the Moon
Image Credit & Copyright: Yuri Beletsky (Carnegie Las Campanas Observatory, TWAN)

Explanation: On July 2 denizens of planet Earth could stand in the Moon’s dark umbral shadow during South America’s 2019 total solar eclipse. It first touched down in the Southern Pacific Ocean, east of New Zealand. Racing toward the east along a narrow track, the shadow of the Moon made landfall along the Chilean coast with the Sun low on the western horizon. Captured in the foreground here are long shadows still cast by direct sunlight though, in the final moments before totality began. While diffraction spikes are from the camera lens aperture, the almost totally eclipsed Sun briefly shone like a beautiful diamond ring in the clear, darkened sky.
