Daylight Saving Time and Halloween are a lot to remember for many people.  If you want to be on time Sunday set your clocks back, back, back one hour before going to bed Saturday night.

If you want scary and RATS go to Chicago.  The only way to get a handle on the rats in Chi-Town is to let the ambulance drivers dump d-Con rat poison on the streets every time they pick up a dead person.  The second best way would be to let USPS employees drop off the stuff when they deliver mail or throw voting ballots in the dumpsters.

Modern ideas are always popping up.  This year you can be an USPS Ballot or even a hand sanitizer.  Is Hope Hicks one of the models ?

There will be no Peeps for Halloween.  CNN is OK to use for fluff articles.

No Demcomms were hurt in making this picture.

The IRS Trick-Or-Treater

Halloween. The door bell rings and a man answers it. Here stands this plain but well dressed kid, saying, “Trick or Treat!”

The man asks the kid what he is dressed up as. The kid replies, “I’m an IRS agent.”

Then he takes 40 percent of the man’s candy, leaves, and doesn’t say thank you.

Campaigning vs. Voting 

While walking down the street one day a Corrupt Senator (that may be redundant) was tragically hit by a car and died.

His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

“Welcome to heaven,” says St. Peter “Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we’re not sure what to do with you.”

“No problem, just let me in,” says the Senator.

“Well, I’d like to, but I have orders from the higher ups. What we’ll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity.”

“Really? I’ve made up my mind. I want to be in heaven,” says the Senator.

“I’m sorry, but we have our rules.”

And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell.

The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course.

In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him

Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people.

They played a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and the finest champagne.

Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who is having a good time dancing and telling jokes.

They are all having such a good time that before the Senator realizes it, it is time to go.

Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises.

The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens in heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him, “Now it’s time to visit heaven…

So, 24 hours passed with the Senator joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time   and before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.

“Well, then, you’ve spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity.”

The Senator reflects for a minute, then he answers: “Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell.”

So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell..

Now the doors of the elevator open and he’s in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls to the ground.

The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulders.

“I don’t understand,” stammers the Senator. “Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there’s just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?”

The devil smiles at him and says,

“Yesterday we were campaigning,

…..Today you voted!”

With the MSM, Social Media, and Democrats wanting a Totalitarian Government, wouldn’t it be better in the hands of others ?  A Democratic MSM cannot provide the truth that a republic requires.

Nazis, spies, and sex–just watch Casablanca.

What is cat-amazing is that the announcers on CNN, MSNBC, and other MSM outlets are more debased, perverted, and repulsive than the Nazi wives and spies.  Here is some uplifting Hollywood-Tar Heel history.

Ava Gardner has a museum.  Luis Miguel Domenquin, Spain’s most famous Bullfighter in the 1950’s and Gardner were a couple for years.  ” I had a fierce wolf in a cage.” he said.

Ava would make a great opponent for Cal Cunningham.  Watch your gal if you are around Cal.  If Cal can’t keep a promise to his wife do you think he will honor promises to you ?

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Fear and Dread: The Moons of Mars
Composite Image Credit & Copyright: Dennis Simmons

Explanation: On Halloween fear and dread will stalk your night skies, also known as Phobos and Deimos the moons of Mars. The 2020 opposition of Mars was on October 13, so the Red Planet will still rise shortly after sunset. Near Halloween’s Full Moon on the sky, its strange yellowish glow will outshine other stars throughout the night. But the two tiny Martian moons are very faint and in close orbits, making them hard to spot, even with a small telescope. You can find them in this carefully annotated composite view though. The overexposed planet’s glare is reduced and orbital paths for inner moon Phobos and outer moon Deimos are overlayed on digitally combined images captured on October 6. The diminutive moons of Mars were discovered in August of 1877 by astronomer Asaph Hall at the US Naval Observatory using the Great Equatorial 26-inch Alvan Clark refractor.
