ON MY SOAPBOX…Comparatively speaking



“America and the World remembers: To fill a table at McDonald’s for a rally, Joe Biden had to show up at Rush Hour. While our man, Donald Trump, always had too many people to fit into the huge stadiums. Trump had more people waiting in line for the restroom than Biden has ever managed to corral.”

Trumptilla boat parade sees Trump supporters on Intracoastal Labor Day

“PINO Biden may have had even less boats at his parade, except for the fact that:  His Queer Secretary of Transportation, Pete Buttigieg, took a Leave-Of-Absence due to morning sickness or his husband  was about to deliver twins. Who knows? Confusing, isn’t it?”

This is what a Biden boat parade looks like



Our Transportation Secretary is on paid leave.



Lt. Col. Scheller has his punishment.


The port backup in La La Land is not easy to solve.


Kudos to LT. Gov. Robinson.  His speech is just as free as Northam in Virginia. The LGBTQRIP should be taught in Biology class.

Yellen is a lying fool.  A few days ago she said that America should NOT have a national debt limit.  She is a toady–a dangerous one.

If your pet needs a veterinarian, loyal reader, RW advises against agreeing to any financial plan.


The dems want FEDERAL CONTROL of local, city, and state elections.  The Sphinx wants paper ballots.


This is on the way.

How does this guy connect the wiring and plumbing ?

Change Karen to school board member.

This is some of the 2,000 page bill that NO ONE has read.


The Non  Racist Editor:  What should John Gruden do, LL ?

The Not A Bigot Cat:  He should move to Virginia and run for governor.  He hasn’t been photographed in Blackface and wearing a Klan sheet.  Ralph Northam, the exiting governor, will probably run the DNC or a 1 Hour Martinizing Laundry for the dem’s dress sheets and pointy hats.

Georgia, USA, needs a good Martinizing, one hour won’t be enough.

The Bee and a trilogy.

The dancing robot company.

Don’t buy the gender-neutral trash.

I thought the Senate also had a vote on the national debt ceiling.  Nancy is a failure.  FNP.

Somebody needs to tell Paul that there is a difference between a band that plays for 8 years and one that plays over 50 years.  He needs some emotional help.


Today’s Accidental Invention…The Implantable Pacemaker

An adjunct professor of engineering at the University of Buffalo, Wilson Greatbatch accidentally invented the pacemaker in 1956. When working on building equipment intended to record heart sounds, the scientist used the wrong transistor and discovered that instead of recording sounds, his device gave off an electrical pulse, mimicking that of the heart. Greatbatch presented his invention to William Chardack, a surgeon at Buffalo’s Veterans Administration Hospital, in 1958, and together the two were able to successfully control a dog’s heartbeat and, in 1960, a human’s.

Explanation: Most galaxies have a single nucleus — does this galaxy have four? The strange answer leads astronomers to conclude that the nucleus of the surrounding galaxy is not even visible in this image. The central cloverleaf is rather light emitted from a background quasar. The gravitational field of the visible foreground galaxy breaks light from this distant quasar into four distinct images. The quasar must be properly aligned behind the center of a massive galaxy for a mirage like this to be evident. The general effect is known as gravitational lensing, and this specific case is known as the Einstein Cross. Stranger still, the images of the Einstein Cross vary in relative brightness, enhanced occasionally by the additional gravitational microlensing effect of specific stars in the foreground galaxy.
