Maybe Newsom doesn’t own California, like his free mansion which someone gifted him.

She made a bad decision.

Almost 1/3 of all land in America is owned by the “People”.

Southwest Air owns many 737 Max Planes.

California residents love their radicals.  They voted for the shut-down and Biden.  They might do it without electricity.

Who owns the Republican DOJ ?  In two years they have one conviction in the attempted overthrow of our government.

Verona Rupes: Tallest Known Cliff in the Solar System
Image Credit: Voyager 2, NASA

Explanation: Could you survive a jump off the tallest cliff in the Solar System? Quite possibly. Verona Rupes on Uranus‘ moon Miranda is estimated to be 20 kilometers deep — ten times the depth of the Earth’s Grand Canyon. Given Miranda‘s low gravity, it would take about 12 minutes for a thrill-seeking adventurer to fall from the top, reaching the bottom at the speed of a racecar — about 200 kilometers per hour. Even so, the fall might be survivable given proper airbag protection. The featured image of Verona Rupes was captured by the passing Voyager 2 robotic spacecraft in 1986. How the giant cliff was created remains unknown, but is possibly related to a large impact or tectonic surface motion.

ON MY SOAPBOX…..Searching for a synonym


WRITTEN BY: SHEILA TOLLEY

 

Like most baby boomers, I was raised to have manners and to show respect for others. This was especially true with what was called “My Elders.” You could bet your Candy Cigarettes and Atomic Fire Ball on that!  One of the very first rules a child learned was that when an Elder asked you a yes/no question…your response would always be followed by Ma’am or Sir. There were no exceptions to that rule.  

I can remember when using the word “HATE” was synonymous with cursing. It was OK to “not like” something but it was never OK to “hate” it. That rule applied to the food on your plate, your neighbors, your teachers, television shows, etc. It applied to everything.

I say all that to say this….I have searched high and low to find a synonym that I can substitute for the word HATE in my conversations and posts in this New, Woke, Modern world. There is not one to be found. They just do not work.

I have tried loathe, detest, abhor, despise, abominate. They simply don’t fit. Those words would work fine if I were writing about ex-husbands, road construction, anchovies, pitbull dogs, etc. They simply do not have enough OOMPH to describe my feelings about the Liberal/Socialist/Communist Democrats.

It has taken me seventy years, but I have finally learned to HATE. Why not? I am finally WOKE. I think I deserve an award for reaching this new level of emotion. After all, Governor Cuomo is receiving the International Emmy Founders Award for killing the most old people in nursing homes during the first wave of Covid.

Call me selfish, but I certainly think I deserve the National Emmy Award of LSC Democrat Hatred. It took me seventy long years to get to this point, DAMMIT…and I want my award!!!!

I even maintain a Daily Hate List of my LSC Democrat Devils. Once a person gets on my list, they are never removed. They are simply moved up or down on my list. I have so many battling for First Place I may need to resort to mail-in ballots to break the tie.

The Asked Editor:  Is this about the old TV show, LL ?

We Borrow Stuff Cat:  It is similar. We borrow a lot of other people’s works, like Joe.  Many California residents are not happy with the liberals they re-elected/have.

https://timesofsandiego.com/politics/2020/11/06/newsom-recall-drive-gets-new-life-signature-deadline-delayed-to-march-17/

This would be great for the Pennsylvania liberals and media.

As the article mentions, the Health  Secretary  is a male identifying as a female.  They will be in the Mr/Ms/Mrs/other Pennsylvania beauty pageant.  WE MAKE FUN OF ALL PEOPLE IN POLITICS.  Color, sex,religion, nothing matters.

Unity Covered Bridge

WGN – 37-20-17 Unity Covered Bridge – Built in 1936 in Lane County by Lane County spanning Fall Creek on Jasper Lowell Rd., single span, 90 feet long, Howe trusses

Oregon Bridge #14721. Cost $2800. The first covered bridge in the area was built about ¾ mile downstream by Nels Roney in 1890. It was restricted to foot traffic in 1936 and finally removed in 1953. Lane County used the state’s standard 90-foot Howe truss design with the addition of a lengthy window on the east side to help motorists see oncoming traffic.

NGC 6822: Barnard’s Galaxy
Image Credit & Copyright: Data – Martin Pugh, Processing – Mark Hanson

Explanation: Grand spiral galaxies often seem to get all the glory, flaunting their young, bright, blue star clusters in beautiful, symmetric spiral arms. But small galaxies form stars too, like nearby NGC 6822, also known as Barnard’s Galaxy. Beyond the rich starfields in the constellation Sagittarius, NGC 6822 is a mere 1.5 million light-years away, a member of our Local Group of galaxies. A dwarf irregular galaxy similar to the Small Magellanic Cloud, NGC 6822 is about 7,000 light-years across. Brighter foreground stars in our Milky Way have a spiky appearance. Behind them, Barnard’s Galaxy is seen to be filled with young blue stars and mottled with the telltale pinkish hydrogen glow of star forming regions in this deep color composite image.
