Ron DeSantis vs. Charlie Crist

It took a fool to even compete against Ron DeSantis for Governor in the state of Florida.
But, as they say, there is one born every minute.
I have never felt comfortable about making premature election announcements….UNTIL TODAY!

The Economics Editor:  What is Capitalism, LL ?

I Like Air And Heat Cat:  Here are some short definitions of a few economic/political models.

Greta is a Progressive Socialist/Communist.

TEE:  Does The Sphinx support one or the other ?

We sure do.  We support a free people voting in fair elections deciding their own systems.  The people have the most important input because government is their creation.  Their rights are more important than the governments involved.  As long as the businesses are made to operate as clean as possible and honestly as possible, that is all you can ask.

The Chinese and Indian governments won’t participate in the Green World System.  The rich/politicians won’t give up their private jets and luxuries.  That leaves you and Greta.

Teachers and politicians are your employees, make them behave or kick them out.

America is on the wrong path/highway.

Vote.  The only reason votes will take longer than one night to count is corruption.

We know sanctuary states/cities are death traps, but the people keep the liberal-dems in office.

This isn’t new.  If you look at the politicians that scream and yell the most, they are the ones who need their actions checked. Check for embezzlement of campaign donations & using relatives as consultants.  Lobby donations are another story.

The Sphinx has stopped listing some sites because crimes, corruption, etc. isn’t news anymore.  They are every day policies available in the news links we do list.  NYC and Chicago crimes are two examples.

The only campaign issue the MEDIA and dems have had for 6 years is hate for Trump. They hate him because he isn’t a corrupt DC SWAMPER.  DeSantis and Tucker Carlson are next in line.  Elon Musk is fourth, for trying to make Twitter an honest social media.

The next racist is Joy-less Reid.

Origin of the Elbow Bump

Thoughts…

 

Give me ambiguity or give me something else.

He who laughs last thinks slowest.

Is it wrong that only one company makes the game Monopoly?

I was going to give him a nasty look, but he already had one.

Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

The grass may be greener on the other side, but at least you don’t have to mow it.

I was going to wear my camouflage shirt today, but I couldn’t find it.

If at first you don’t succeed, skydiving is not for you.

If tomatoes are technically a fruit, is ketchup a smoothie?

Money is the root of all wealth.

No matter how much you push the envelope, it’ll still be stationery.

Just a penny….

You always hear the usual stories of pennies on the sidewalk being good luck, gifts from angels, etc. This is the first time I’ve ever heard this twist on the story. Gives you something to think about.

Several years ago, a friend of mine and her husband were invited to spend the weekend at the husband’s employer’s home. My friend, Arlene, was nervous about the weekend. The boss was very wealthy, with a fine home on the waterway, and cars costing more than her house.

The first day and evening went well, and Arlene was delighted to have this rare glimpse into how the very wealthy live. The husband’s employer was quite generous as a host, and took them to the finest restaurants. Arlene knew she would never have the opportunity to indulge in this kind of extravagance again, so was enjoying herself immensely.

As the three of them were about to enter an exclusive restaurant that evening, the boss was walking slightly ahead of Arlene and her husband.

He stopped suddenly, looking down on the pavement for a long, silent moment.

Arlene wondered if she was supposed to pass him. There was nothing on the ground except a single darkened penny that someone had dropped, and a few cigarette butts. Still silent, the man reached down and picked up the penny.

He held it up and smiled, then put it in his pocket as if he had found a great treasure. How absurd! What need did this man have for a single penny? Why would he even take the time to stop and pick it up?

Throughout dinner, the entire scene nagged at her. Finally, she could stand it no longer. She casually mentioned that her daughter once had a coin collection, and asked if the penny he had found had been of some value.

A smile crept across the man’s face as he reached into his pocket for the penny and held it out for her to see. She had seen many pennies before! What was the point of this?

“Look at it.” He said. “Read what it says.”

She read the words “United States of America.”

“No, not that; read further.”

“One cent?”

“No, keep reading.”

“In God we Trust?”

“Yes!”

“And?”

“And if I trust in God, the name of God is holy, even on a coin. Whenever I find a coin, I see that inscription. It is written on every single United States coin, but we never seem to notice it! God drops a message right in front of me telling me to trust Him? Who am I to pass it by? When I see a coin, I pray, I stop to see if my trust IS in God at that moment. I pick the coin up as a response to God; that I do trust in Him. For a short time, at least, I cherish it as if it were gold. I think it is God’s way of starting a conversation with me. Lucky for me, God is patient and pennies are plentiful!”

When I was out shopping yesterday I found a penny on the sidewalk. I stopped and picked it up, and realized that I had been worrying and fretting in my mind about things I cannot change. I read the words, “In God We Trust,” and had to laugh. Yes, God, I get the message.

It seems that I have been finding an inordinate number of pennies in the last few months, but then, pennies are plentiful! And, God is patient…

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Galaxies: Wild’s Triplet from Hubble

Explanation: How many galaxies are interacting here? This grouping of galaxies is called the Wild Triplet, not only for the discoverer, but for the number of bright galaxies that appear. It had been assumed that all three galaxies, collectively cataloged as Arp 248, are interacting, but more recent investigations reveal that only the brightest two galaxies are sparring gravitationally: the big galaxies at the top and bottom. The spiral galaxy in the middle of the featured image by the Hubble Space Telescope is actually far in the distance, as is the galaxy just below it and all of the other numerous galaxies in the field. A striking result of these giants jousting is a tremendous bridge of stars, gas, and dust that stretches between them — a bridge almost 200,000 light-years long. Light we see today from Wild’s Triplet left about 200 million years ago, when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. In perhaps a billion years or so, the two interacting galaxies will merge to form a single large spiral galaxy.
