From Down Under

Australia’s largest national newspaper is refusing to apologize after publishing a cartoon showing former Vice President Joe Biden calling Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris a “little brown girl.”

“How funny! I guess MSM does not realize that Australia is not required to kiss their Liberal Asses. WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO, BOYCOTT KANGAROOS?”

The Trifling Editor:   Do you have some new words for our loyal readers, LL ?

The Infrequently Accessed Cat:   I sure do, sometimes I’m caught with no response when a little known word is used.  The first is ” gadding “.

https://pagesix.com/2020/08/25/libbie-mugrabi-still-gadding-about-town-with-mighty-ducks-star-brock-pierce/?_ga=2.65543531.491620890.1580599220-1206601833.1577719306

It means, if you are a Democrat, going around town and burning down everything/anything.  You can also kill people.

I like this one, it sounds like a cyborg creature.   It is sometimes called a ” crawler “.  Oooooh

This is from young people.  It is a form of aggression, much like a question mark or comma.

Teachers should be careful about virtual classes.

This should close-out this article, bastar*.  Like many insulting words its meaning has largely changed since the sexual revolution.  I guess now it is used with poor, stupid, ignorant, your/our, and usually with Democrat.  Joe Biden likes it because without its use he has five ( 5 ) grandchildren.  Where is Joe ??????

Astronomy Picture of the Day

SS 433: Binary Star Micro-Quasar
Animation Credit: DESY, Science Communication Lab

Explanation: SS 433 is one of the most exotic star systems known. Its unremarkable name stems from its inclusion in a catalog of Milky Way stars which emit radiation characteristic of atomic hydrogen. Its remarkable behavior stems from a compact object, a black hole or neutron star, which has produced an accretion disk with jets. Because the disk and jets from SS 433 resemble those surrounding supermassive black holes in the centers of distant galaxies, SS 433 is considered a micro-quasar. As illustrated in the animated featured video based on observational data, a massive, hot, normal star is locked in orbit with the compact object. As the video starts, material is shown being gravitationally ripped from the normal star and falling onto an accretion disk. The central star also blasts out jets of ionized gas in opposite directions – each at about 1/4 the speed of light. The video then pans out to show a top view of the precessing jets producing an expanding spiral. From even greater distances, the dissipating jets are then visualized near the heart of supernova remnant W50. Two years ago, SS 433 was unexpectedly found by the HAWC detector array in Mexico to emit unusually high energy (TeV-range) gamma-rays. Surprises continue, as a recent analysis of archival data taken by NASA‘s Fermi satellite find a gamma-ray source — separated from the central stars as shown — that pulses in gamma-rays with a period of 162 days – the same as SS 433’s jet precession period – for reasons yet unknown.

A Perfect Comparison

Golf Balls Could Talk | Golf humor, Golf quotes, Golf ball

This is a perfect “take it to the ridiculous” comparison to some of the recent protests.

 

 I am a member of golf’s lower 99%.  I am an indifferent golfer, and there’s no way I could ever make it to the professional level.  I will never put in the practice time to be the best.  I will never have the shots, skills, or mental toughness to “make it” in the sport.  I just never felt like working all that hard at it. 

However, I am a part of the golfing community and, as such, feel I should be paid by the top 1% of golfers for what I do.  It isn’t fair that those players who have worked harder, have studied the game, have better equipment, and are more skilled and dedicated should make all that BIG money.  Where’s my share?   I’m a Victim!   The top 1% should pay for my club memberships, green fees, lessons, and buy me new clubs, balls, clothes and shoes, and pay me some of their winnings.  They can afford it.  They are “The Rich”.

The whole system should be changed to accommodate people like me.  I think we should get together and occupy a golf course and demand that those who are better at what they do, pay for us who generally stink.

I think we should get some paint and cover streets and parking lots with “BAD GOLFERS MATTER”.  “BGM”.  I don’t even play golf, but my ancestors did, so I’m looking for some REPARATION PAYMENTS!

The Not Many Editor:  Did you find something rare, LL ?

Almost Gold Dabloun Cat:  These archeology apprentices found something very rare.  The supervisor of the ” dig ” said that it is very possible that RBG used these coins.

https://www.foxnews.com/world/israeli-archaeologists-discover-large-trove-of-islamic-gold-coins

This is a brief story of the birth of a political activist.  At first she was just asking questions.

She learned to have a plan B ready in case her favorite Communist lost.

https://pagesix.com/2020/04/09/cardi-b-lashes-out-at-young-fans-after-bernie-sanders-drops-presidential-bid/?_ga=2.169727204.491620890.1580599220-1206601833.1577719306

A little later she learned that being a news person was better than not.

To get the last few votes, a popular hair style is a must.  I hope Nancy is working on hers.

The final phase in politics is to see of she can endure criticism.

https://twitter.com/hodgetwins/status/1298774307892387840

Her millions of fans are waiting to see if like the Clintons, Obamas, Pigleosis, Maxine Waters, Adam Schiff, Nadler, Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, Pocahontas, and scores of others if she will give away 80% of her wealth.  That would include all homes but one, all private plane travel, all government contracts held by relatives, all Presidential Libraries, and all non-profits.  We hope you make it, Cardi B.  America needs your leadership.

With the police gone, who will  you hire to protect your remaining 20% ?
