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.

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.”

Being more sensitive…

After a long day I stopped at a local watering hole and had a few libations. I was thinking about the events of the day and decided that I’m going to try to be more understanding, tolerant and exhibit more empathy and compassion for my fellow human beings.

While sitting there a young woman came into the bar.  She was crying and obviously distraught.
I asked her if she was alright and if there was anything I could do for her.

She calmed down a little and while fighting back tears she told me t
hat her cat died and that she wished she could have another one just like it.

So I asked her . . . “Why  would you want another dead cat?”

Talkative Tourist

A Texan was taking a taxi tour of London and was in a hurry. As they went by the Tower of London the cab driver explained what it was and that construction of it started in 1346 and was completed in 1412.

The Texan replied, “Shoot, a little ol’ tower like that? In Houston we’d have that thing up in two weeks!”

Next they passed the House of Parliament – started in 1544 and completed in 1618.

“Well boy, we put up a bigger one than that in Dallas and it only took a year!”

As they passed Westminster Abbey the cab driver was silent.

“Whoah! What’s that over there?” asked the Texan.

The driver replied, “I don’t know, it wasn’t there yesterday.”

WHAT AISLE IS THE POLISH SAUSAGE IN?

Everyone seems to be in such a hurry to scream ‘prejudice’ these
days…………….
 
A customer asked, “In what aisle can I find the Polish sausage?”
 
The clerk asks, “Are you Polish?”
 
The guy, clearly offended, says, “Yes I am. But let me ask you
something.
 
If I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian?
 
Or if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was
German?
 
Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish?
 
Or if I had asked for a Taco, would you ask if I was Mexican?
 
Or if I asked for some Irish whiskey, would you ask if I was Irish?”
 
The clerk says, “No, I probably wouldn’t.”
 
The guy says, “Well then, because I asked for Polish sausage, why did
you ask me if I’m Polish?”
 
The clerk replied, “Because you’re in Ace Hardware.”

Rapid Train Service

A passenger train is creeping along, painfully slow. Finally, it creaks to a complete halt. A passenger sees a conductor walking by outside.

“What’s going on?” she yells out the window.

“Cow on the track!” replies the conductor.

Ten minutes later, the train resumes its slow pace. Within five minutes, however, it stops again. The woman sees the same conductor walking by again. She leans out the window and yells, “What happened? Did we catch up with the cow again?”
