The Conservatives should use this advise at the Democratic leaders homes.

The Editor:  Where did you get a headache, LL ?

Shhhh Cat:  It must have been from listening to the lying Democrats and news media.

Don’t Yell Cat:  I’m thinking of taking these old remedies.  Joe Biden said he took them to cure the headaches he got from baking the Lawn Jockeys in his back-yarn kiln.

If these don’t work I will try an old folk remedy.

This is what the BLM movement deserves.

I’m thinking of starting a Wanted Top 10 list like the FBI.

Here is one Obama buddy pleading guilty.

RIP  Trini Lopez.  Trump also wants to hammer out justice on every sanctuary rat hole.

Phone Repair

Image result for clipart loose ground wire phone free

Ellisville, Mississippi

An Ellisville school teacher called the local phone company to report her telephone failed to ring when her friends called – and that on the few occasions, when it did ring, her dog always moaned right before the phone rang.

The telephone repairman proceeded to the scene, curious to see this psychic dog or senile lady. He climbed a telephone pole, hooked in his test set, and dialed the subscriber’s house.

The phone didn’t ring right away, but then the dog moaned and the telephone began to ring.

Climbing down from the pole, the telephone repairman found:

The dog was tied to the telephone system’s ground wire with a steel chain and collar.

The wire connection to the ground rod was loose.

The dog was receiving 90 volts of signaling current when the number was called.

After a couple of jolts, the dog would start moaning and then urinate.

The wet ground would complete the circuit, thus causing the phone to ring.

Which demonstrates that some problems CAN be fixed by pissing and moaning.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Perseids Around the Milky Way
Image Credit & Copyright: Jingyi Zhang

Explanation: Why would meteor trails appear curved? The arcing effect arises only because the image artificially compresses (nearly) the whole sky into a rectangle. The meteors are from the Perseid Meteor Shower that peaked last week. The featured multi-frame image combines not only different directions from the 360 projection, but different times when bright Perseid meteors momentarily streaked across the sky. All Perseid meteors can be traced back to the constellation Perseus toward the lower left, even the seemingly curved (but really straight) meteor trails. Although Perseids always point back to their Perseus radiant, they can appear almost anywhere on the sky. The image was taken from Inner Mongolia, China, where grasslands meet sand dunes. Many treasures also visible in the busy night sky including the central arch of our Milky Way Galaxy, the planets Saturn and Jupiter toward the right, colorful airglow on the central left, and some relatively nearby Earthly clouds. The Perseid Meteor Shower peaks every August.
