This is why we must not let up on the Demodogs.  Obama would probably want the chambers facing Mecca.

The Editor:  Are you ready for the New Year, LL ?

New Decade Cat:  I sure am.  Maybe the Brits will finally Brexit, and around July the Demodungbeetles will start a second impeachment.  Sometimes I think the MSM starts the lies to improve ratings.

It sure will be an interesting year with the Demotrashy creeps picking their champion.

We hope everyone has a good year.  Here are some facts about the New Year.

Good Stuff

Creative Thinking: An elderly man, harassed by the taunts of the neighborhood children, devised a scheme. He offered to pay them a dollar each if they would return on Tuesday and yell their insults again.

The children did so eagerly and received the money. Then he told them he would only pay them twenty-five cents on Wednesday. When they returned, insulted him again and collected their quarters, he informed them that Thursday’s rate would only be a penny. “Forget it,” they said—and never taunted him again.

Fall seven times, stand up eight.

An open mind collects more riches than an open purse.

You can make more friends in a month by being interested in them than in ten years by trying to get them interested in you.

M33: The Triangulum Galaxy

Explanation: The small, northern constellation Triangulum harbors this magnificent face-on spiral galaxy, M33. Its popular names include the Pinwheel Galaxy or just the Triangulum Galaxy. M33 is over 50,000 light-years in diameter, third largest in the Local Group of galaxies after the Andromeda Galaxy (M31), and our own Milky Way. About 3 million light-years from the Milky Way, M33 is itself thought to be a satellite of the Andromeda Galaxy and astronomers in these two galaxies would likely have spectacular views of each other’s grand spiral star systems. As for the view from planet Earth, this sharp image shows off M33’s blue star clusters and pinkish star forming regions along the galaxy’s loosely wound spiral arms. In fact, the cavernous NGC 604 is the brightest star forming region, seen here at about the 7 o’clock position from the galaxy center. Like M31, M33’s population of well-measured variable stars have helped make this nearby spiral a cosmic yardstick for establishing the distance scale of the Universe.

A Young Law Student, Having Failed His Law Exam, Questions His Professor

A young Law student, having failed his Law exam, goes up to his crusty old professor, who is renowned for his razor-sharp legal mind.

Student: “Sir, do you really understand everything about this subject?”

Professor: “Actually, I probably do. Otherwise I wouldn’t be a professor, would I?”

Student: “OK. So I’d like to ask you a question. If you can give me
the correct answer, I will accept my marks as they are. If you
can’t give me the correct answer, however, you’ll have to give me an “A”.

Professor: “Hmmmm, alright. So what’s the question?”

Student: “What is legal but not logical, logical but not legal, and
neither logical nor legal?

The professor wracks his famous brain, but just can’t crack the answer.
Finally he gives up and changes the student’s failing mark
into an “A” as agreed, and the student goes away, very pleased.

The professor continues to wrack his brain over the question all
afternoon, but still can’t get the answer. So finally he calls in
a group of his brightest students and tells them he has a really, really
tough question to answer: “What is legal but not logical,
logical but not legal, and neither logical nor legal?

To the professor’s surprise (and embarrassment), all the students
immediately raise their hands.

“All right” says the professor and asks his favorite student to answer
“It’s quite easy, sir” says the student “You see, you are 75 years old
and married to a 30 year old woman, which is legal, but not
logical.

Your wife has a 22 year old lover, which is logical, but not legal.
And your wife’s lover failed his exam but you’ve just given him
an “A”, which is neither legal, nor logical.”
