The King’s Weather Forecaster

The king wanted to go fishing, and he asked the royal weather forecaster the forecast for the next few hours. The palace meteorologist assured him that there was no chance of rain.

So the king and the queen went fishing. On the way he met a man with a
fishing pole riding on a donkey, and he asked the man if the fish were biting.

The fisherman said, “Your Majesty, you should return to the palace! In just
a short time I expect a huge rain storm.”

The king replied: “I hold the palace meteorologist in high regard. He is an educated and experienced professional. Besides, I pay him very high wages.
He gave me a very different forecast. I trust him.”

So the king continued on his way.

However, in a short time a torrential rain fell from the sky. The King and
Queen were totally soaked. Furious, the king returned to the palace and gave the order to behead the meteorologist.

Then he summoned the fisherman and offered him the prestigious position
of royal forecaster. The fisherman said, “Your Majesty, I do not know anything about forecasting. I obtain my information from my donkey. If I see my donkey’s ears drooping, it means with certainty that it will rain.”

So the king hired the donkey. And so began the practice of hiring dumb asses to work in influential positions of government. And thus the symbol of the democrat party was born.

The practice is unbroken to this day.

I sure hope the fire fighters are successful.


This is what the union teachers, liberals, and Democrats want—-your children.


Here is an old clip from Atlanta, from the Neal Boortz radio show.  In the nineties Atlanta was the World’s next great city.  They hosted the 1996 Olympics.  Now the dems have turned it into a dump.

This company is stupid enough to be a branch of Biden’s ATF.

This is probably a low figure.


The MSM and dems want your children’s soul.  You can’t even lose weight and be proud of it.

I wish Biden would buy me a smart-phone.  I bet they are $500.00 a month each–that’s over 1 million illegals thru 7-1-21.


The Reluctant Editor:  Are animals the main topic, LL ?

Not really Cat:  No, they just have a few more articles.  The first article is about fish, but Biden is using this as a test to get more illegals here.

A bat scares the Corn Huskers.

Rats are eating the wiring of Tesla cars.  Tesla says too bad.

Artificial Intelligence isn’t saving anybody, yet.  Chemicals are killing the insects, as well as people ( autism ).  Roundup was going to increase harvests–the weeds adapted–now even Polar Bears have Roundup in their bodies.

I bet the stuff is even in veggie burgers.

Texas state democrats leave town to avoid voting on a new bill.

The Atlantic Magazine owned by Steve Jobs widow is losing money—-Good.

Kids are in the news.

Cuomo can always work for CNN or become an artist like Hunter.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Framed by Trees: A Window to the Galaxy

Explanation: The photographer had this shot in mind for some time. He knew that objects overhead are the brightest — since their light is scattered the least by atmospheric air. He also that knew the core of our Milky Way Galaxy was just about straight up near midnight around this time of year in South Australia. Chasing his mental picture, he ventured deep inside the Kuipto Forest where tall radiata pines blocked out much of the sky — but not in this clearing. There, through a window framed by trees, he captured his envisioned combination of local and distant nature. Sixteen exposures of both trees and the Milky Way Galaxy were recorded. Antares is the bright orange star to left of our Galaxy’s central plane, while Alpha Centauri is the bright star just to the right of the image center. The direction toward our Galaxy’s center is below Antares. Although in a few hours the Earth’s rotation moved the Galactic plane up and to the left — soon invisible behind the timber, his mental image was secured forever — and is featured here.
