There is snow out West.
The Editor: Do you ever wonder why you went into reporting the news, LL ?
Answer Cat; I sure do. Sometimes I want to climb a tall tree and jump out. I tried it once and Amigo washed me down with a water hose. This always cheers me up. I wonder if the jokers in the second link are flying on AIR FORCE ONE.
Here are some interesting items.
TE: What’s the story on impeachment, AC ?
The Demowarthogs are just giving Republicans more reason to get out the vote.
What fools the dems are, goodness gracious.
Explanation: Have you seen Orion lately? The next few months will be the best for seeing this familiar constellation as it rises continually earlier in the night. However, Orion’s stars and nebulas won’t look quite as colorful to the eye as they do in this fantastic camera image. In the featured image, Orion was captured by camera showing its full colors last month over a Brazilian copal tree from Brazil‘s Central-West Region. Here the cool red giant Betelgeuse takes on a strong orange hue as the brightest star on the far left. Otherwise, Orion’s hot blue stars are numerous, with supergiant Rigel balancing Betelgeuse at the upper right, Bellatrix at the upper left, and Saiph at the lower right. Lined up in Orion’s belt (bottom to top) are Alnitak, Alnilam, and Mintaka all about 1,500 light-years away, born of the constellation’s well studied interstellar clouds. And if a “star” toward the upper right Orion’s sword looks reddish and fuzzy to you, it should. It’s the stellar nursery known as the Great Nebula of Orion.

In the 1980s, San Francisco ophthalmologist was testing out new treatments for crossed eyes—and though he found it, what he also discovered was that his treatment had miraculous face-lifting side effects, leading to the creation of Botox.
There were a thousand pitfalls in prescribing the manner in which the national legislature should be organized. After the Declaration of Independence in 1776, the boisterous and sometimes tempestuous experience which the Founders observed in their own state legislatures taught them some pungent lessons by 1787 which they wrote into the Constitution to provide for the efficient operation of Congress.
If a person watches carefully for them, many of the “ancient principles” as well as the Founder’s more recent lessons in political experience will be observed in the intricate machinery provided for in Congress. Of course, there have always been those who have rated legislative bodies in terms of their “efficiency” which in the fascist states and the communist assemblies always means the rapid and enthusiastic endorsement of executive pronouncements. However, in the United States the Founders placed in the hands of Congress twenty enumerated powers, all of which have to be skillfully administered within the strict limitations, guidelines, or “chains” which the Constitution prescribes. This means that legislation, of necessity, must move solely through a screening process more refined than that of any other legislature in the world.
To the Founders, the goal was not more laws, but the preservation of freedom. The entire American success formula is based on this premise. With the Founders the maxim that “he who governs least, governs best” was not an idle adage.
“I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground that all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to states or to the people. To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power, not longer susceptible of any definition.”
“In questions of power, then let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”
“Liberty must at all hazards be supported. We have a right to it, derived from our maker. But if we had not, our fathers have earned and bought it for us, at the expense of their ease, their estates, their pleasure, and their blood.”

“If our country is to survive and prosper, we must summon the courage to condemn and reject the liberal agenda, and we had better do it soon.”
AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL
If “hate” were only defined in dictionary terms that would be welcome. However, “hate” is not defined by the dictionary but by the cultural far-left and their definition is “anything we can get away with”. They use the word “hate” as a cudgel to quash debate and to obtain power.
A SIMPLE TRUTH FOR TODAY
Ask not what you can do for your country, ask what your government is doing to you.
