The Balloon from China contains the Classified Documents that Xi Jinping has finished copying.
Joe is afraid to shoot it down because Jinping may have enclosed a demand for a refund with the documents.

That Horrible M Word……..

Have you ever wondered why it is OK to make jokes about:

Catholics, Jews, Christians, the Pope, the Irish, the Italians, the Polish, the Hungarians, the Chinese, the French (including French Canadians), the elderly, bad golfers, men/women, blacks/whites, etc, but its insensitive to make jokes about the Muslims?

Well, it’s time to level the playing field and be politically incorrect, by including our friends, the Muslims, on this grandiose list.

So Jeff Foxworthy did his part to include the Muslims on his list …

You may be a Muslim if:

You grow and refine heroin for a living, but morally
object to the use of liquor.

You own a $3,000 machine gun and a $5,000 rocket
launcher, but can’t afford shoes.

You have more wives than teeth..

You wipe your butt with your bare hand, but consider bacon to be unclean.

You think vests come in two styles, Bullet-proof and suicide.

You can’t think of anyone who you haven’t declared jihad against.

You consider television dangerous, but routinely carry explosives in your clothing.

You were amazed to discover that cell phones have uses, other than setting off roadside bombs.

You have nothing against women and think every man should own at least four.

You find this offensive.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

NGC 2626 along the Vela Molecular Ridge
Image Credit & Copyright: Mike Selby & Mark Hanson

Explanation: Centered in this colorful cosmic canvas, NGC 2626 is a beautiful, bright, blue reflection nebula in the southern Milky Way. Next to an obscuring dust cloud and surrounded by reddish hydrogen emission from large H II region RCW 27 it lies within a complex of dusty molecular clouds known as the Vela Molecular Ridge. NGC 2626 is itself a cloud of interstellar dust reflecting blue light from the young hot embedded star visible within the nebula. But astronomical explorations reveal many other young stars and associated nebulae in the star-forming region. NGC 2626 is about 3,200 light-years away. At that distance this telescopic field of view would span about 30 light-years along the Vela Molecular Ridge.

Bible Verse

Daddy is a Gay Dancer

Proof That Hot Air Rises….

A woman in a hot air balloon realizes she is lost. She lowers her altitude and spots a man fishing from a boat below. She shouts to him, “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.”

The man consults his portable GPS and replies, “You’re in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.

She rolls her eyes and says, “You must be a Republican!” “I am,” replies the man. “How did you know?” “Well,” answers the balloonist, “everything you tell me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to do with your information, and I’m still lost. Frankly, you’re not much help to me.”

The man smiles and responds, “You must be a Democrat.” “I am, replies the balloonist. “How did you know?” “Well,” says the man, “You don’t know where you are or where you’re going. You’ve risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and now you expect me to solve your problem. You’re in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but, somehow, now it’s my fault.”
