We should be proud and thankful that the Raptor is in our arsenal and not elsewhere!


In September 2014, the F22 Raptor made its combat debut in coordinated strikes with other fighter jets and bombers against Islamic State (ISIS) strongholds in Syria. There have been several videos depicting the flying capabilities of the F-22 Raptor, but this is one of the best that I have ever seen. It’s shot in HD with a stabilized camera inside the cockpit. Split screen shots allow you to see the outside and inside as the maneuver unfolds. The sharpness of the image and sound is quite good.

Sound up…full screen…You will enjoy this 3 minute video of a look inside the Raptor with Major Josh ‘Cabo’ Gunderson.



Astronomy Picture of the Day

The Pipe Nebula

Explanation: East of Antares, dark markings sprawl through crowded star fields toward the center of our Milky Way Galaxy. Cataloged in the early 20th century by astronomer E. E. Barnard, the obscuring interstellar dust clouds include B59, B72, B77 and B78, seen in against the starry background. Here, their combined shape suggests a pipe stem and bowl, and so the dark nebula’s popular name is the Pipe Nebula. The deep and expansive view covers a full 10 by 10 degree field in the pronounceable constellation Ophiuchus. The Pipe Nebula is part of the Ophiuchus dark cloud complex located at a distance of about 450 light-years. Dense cores of gas and dust within the Pipe Nebula are collapsing to form stars.

Tomorrow’s picture: Somewhat Saturn



Here is a big explosion, caused by seven years of neglect and stupidity.   America will soon explode the same way, for the same reasons.

This is probably close to the truth.

The Fairy Tale Editor:  Is this like Goldilocks and The Three Bears, LL ?

Jack And The Beanstalk Cat:  It’s kind of a comparison, between illegal immigrants and mass mail-in-ballots.

Once illegals get into America you can’t get them out.  The courts won’t let you.  Goldilocks would be an analogy for the illegals.  She breaks into The Three Bears house and destroys everything.  Everything has to be just right.  She runs to California and gets sanctuary.

Mass mail-in ballots will be worse.  Once they are mailed the election is doomed.  I have forwarded stories of the printer sending ballots to the wrong state, postal employees throwing them away, people altering them,  people dead for 12 years receiving them, and even dead pet cats receiving ballots.  The problems are endless.

The state legislators are forfeiting their responsibility to the courts.  It will be fun to watch.  Once a ballot is mailed it is like an illegal immigrant seeking sanctuary.  The courts want every ballot to be just right.

This is even worse than no identification–there is no physical person.
