The Editor:  Is this like the eclipse last year, LL ?

Moon Cat:  No, this is a lunar eclipse.  The moon passes in the Earth’s shadow.  Here are some facts.

TE:  Will this be another End Of The World eclipse, MC ?

MC:  I sure hope so.  Amigo has resorted to the Japanese Wolf bot to protect him from the Progressive Democrats.

Here is a Japanese android.  If you want to keep your culture give your citizens a tax break for more babies.

THIS IS RIDICULOUS….WHY WORK WHEN TAXPAYERS WILL SUPPORT YOU ?

Can’t you hear students telling their teachers they want to be welfare recipients when they grow up?
.
THE WORK ETHIC WE INHERITED GROWING UP HAS FALLEN PREY TO THE ‘WELFARE’ SYSTEM.’
.
The Cato Institute released an updated 2014 study (original study in 1955) showing that welfare benefits pay more than a minimum wage job in 33 states and the District of Columbia.
.
Even worse, welfare pays more than $15 per hour in 13 states.
.
According to the study, welfare benefits have increased faster than minimum wage.  It’s now more profitable to sit at home and watch TV than it is to earn an honest day’s pay.
.
Hawaii is the biggest offender, where welfare recipients earn $29.13 per hour, or a $60,590 yearly salary, all for doing nothing.
.
Here is the list of the states where the pre-tax equivalent “salary” that welfare recipients receive is higher than having a job:
.
1. Hawaii : $60,590
2. District of Columbia :$50,820
3. Massachusetts : $50,540
4. Connecticut : $44,370
5. New York : $43,700
6. New Jersey : $43,450
7. Rhode Island : $43,330
8. Vermont : $42,350
9. New Hampshire : $39,750
10. Maryland : $38,160
11. California : $37,160
12. Oregon : $34,300
13. Wyoming : $32,620
14. Nevada : $29,820
15. Minnesota : $29,350
16. Delaware : $29,220
17. Washington : $28,840
18. North Dakota : $28,830
19. Pennsylvania : $28,670
20. New Mexico : $27,900
21. Montana : $26,930
22. South Dakota : $26,610
23. Kansas: $26,490
24. Michigan : $26,430
25. Alaska : $26,400
26. Ohio : $26,200
27. North Carolina : $25,760
28. West Virginia : $24,900
29. Alabama : $23,310
30. Indiana : $22,900
31. Missouri : $22,800
32. Oklahoma : $22,480
33. Louisiana : $22,250
34. South Carolina : $21,910
.
As a point of reference the average Middle Class annual income today is $50,000, down from $54,000 at the beginning of the Great Recession.
.
Hawaii, DC , and Massachusetts pay more in welfare than the average working folks earn there.
.
Is it any wonder that they stay home rather than look for a job.
Time for a drastic change…  America is virtually bankrupt.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Total Lunar Eclipse at Moonset

Explanation: The Moon slid through Earth’s shadow on January 31, 2018 in a total lunar eclipse. In this time-lapse sequence of that eclipse from Portal, Arizona, USA, the partial eclipse starts with the Moon high in the western sky. The eclipse total phase lasted about 76 minutes, but totality ended after the dark, reddened Moon set below the horizon. The upcoming total lunar eclipse, on the night of January 20/21, will be better placed for skygazers across the Americas, though. There, all 62 minutes of the total phase, when the Moon is completely immersed in Earth’s dark umbral shadow, will take place with the Moon above the horizon. Watch it if you can. The next total lunar eclipse visible from anywhere on planet Earth won’t take place until May 26, 2021, and then the total eclipse will last a mere 15 minutes.
