The Question Editor:  Are prices going to continue to rise, LL ?

Answer Cat:  You Betcha, the dems voted for higher prices when they voted for Kamala and Joe.  Being China’s Butt Buddy also plays a big part.  They also voted for that.

One reason for many oil companies remaining in business is the BLM/Antifa/Democrat/MSM riots and killings are using so much gasoline to burn down neighborhoods.  They won’t be woke and use wind and solar to start the arson fires.

The infrastructure will have a Made in China label.  Why doesn’t the law require that only American products and citizens can be used in the project?

All of you can rest easy, Lebron is on call. There is no need for Venus and Steve Zodiac.  I never could understand why they had anti-gravity scooters and XL5 is on tracks.  It must have been made for kids.

Good Stuff

 

Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you mad.

Pick battles big enough to matter, small enough to win.

Some luck lies in not getting what you thought you wanted but getting what you have, which once you have got it you may be smart enough to see is what you would have wanted had you known.

How to make it in show business–by Steve Martin: Be so good they can’t ignore you.

If you can walk, you can dance. If you can talk, you can sing.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Apollo 17: The Crescent Earth
Image Credit: Apollo 17, NASA; RestorationToby Ord

Explanation: Our fair planet sports a curved, sunlit crescent against the black backdrop of space in this stunning photograph. From the unfamiliar perspective, the Earth is small and, like a telescopic image of a distant planet, the entire horizon is completely within the field of view. Enjoyed by crews on board the International Space Station, only much closer views of the planet are possible from low Earth orbit. Orbiting the planet once every 90 minutes, a spectacle of clouds, oceans, and continents scrolls beneath them with the partial arc of the planet’s edge in the distance. But this digitally restored image presents a view so far only achieved by 24 humans, Apollo astronauts who traveled to the Moon and back again between 1968 and 1972. The original photograph, AS17-152-23420, was taken by the homeward bound crew of Apollo 17, on December 17, 1972. For now it’s the last picture of Earth from this planetary perspective taken by human hands.
