Awesome success..

So let this be a reminder as to what US Science & Tech abilities are capable of -

We launched a satellite to rendezvous with a speeding asteroid, successfully tracked it's motion, and then proceeded to target & impact into it...from millions of miles away.

We then got the impact on live stream footage on Earth..

And folks in the MSM tell us all the time we need to be afraid of China & Russia's advanced technological and military prowess??

This was going around in 2011. Nothing has changed.

I do not like this Uncle Sam, I do not like his health care scam. I do not like these dirty crooks, or how they lie and cook the books. I do not like when Congress steals, I do not like their secret deals. I do not like this spending spree, I'm smart, I know that nothing's free. I do not like their smug replies, when I complain about their lies. I do not like this kind of hope. I do not like it. nope, nope, nope

Giving up phonics was the stupidest thing school systems ever did. The old ways of learning work best for a broader group of children.

Raising taxes takes more money away from people, so they'll have less spending money.

Less spending money will reduce demand which will lead to reduced prices for goods and services. Therefore, raising taxes stops inflation!

Is that the logic the Bidet administration is going with? Make people so poor they can't buy anything and thus forcing prices to come down?

This made me smile today. Paramount Global predicts a streaming loss of $1.8 billion in 2022, yet they're still claiming their "content investment is working." *Laughs in real Star Trek*

I did a thread on this a while back. Here is the front and back of a phonemic chart I created (copies of which are now circulating, growing in popularity) that two professors - one Brit, one Woke American - found "concerning".

[Phonetic clarity and disambiguation from British English] "...can only serve to confuse students. Don't they have enough to memorise already? Why muddy the waters?"

Unmuddy, buddy. Un.

Meanwhile, students are lapping it up with nice rewarding thank yous and smiles.

Biden, like so many self-loathing, virtue-signaling Democrats - IN FULL BLOWN DENIAL - is typified by the sadistic sociopath author, William Golding (Lord of the Flies).

He projected HIS pathology onto young boys (and the whole of humanity by extension) as basically as evil as him by nature.

They are the thieves, liars, cheats, etc., who think everyone is in their heart of hearts.

So they pass their own dystopian self-judgments onto everyone else.

This is what’s called a “Dick Move”..

Russian Missiles Hit Ukraine’s Odesa Port, Key to Grain Deal
themoscowtimes.com/2022/07/23/

So for the past few weeks, the UN, Turkish President Erdogan, and a slew of other leaders along with Russia agreed to allow grain and other food harvested from Ukraine out from their Black Sea ports, thus calming fears of a massive food crisis.

Firing missiles into the port pretty much torpedoes the deal and incurs that same level of ire & panic - and distrust of Putin..

More than 65 countries peg their currencies to the U.S. dollar.
Five U.S. territories and a number of sovereign countries, such as Ecuador and Panama, use it as an official currency of exchange.
Around 90% of all Forex trading involves the U.S. dollar.

But some cretins will tell you that a Crypto currency from Venezuela or the actions of a country with a GDP smaller than Florida will threaten the "supremacy of the dollar".

There is no shortage of stupid.

All of these poltroons sold their country for a cocktail invitation, a few more dollars in their pensions or to satisfy their own petty grievances.

Apparatchiks who forgot honor and commitment and lacked courage.

Remember them.

The cowardly refuse of a great Nation.

Scum.

Several shattering blows for the Democrats regarding redistricting in the last week.

The cumulative result wipes out any Democrat advantage they might have had due to redistricting, which was highly exaggerated anyway by deluded leftists and fretful, fussbudget conservatives.

Seeing your other Trek toot today reminded me of this post from EW. They're going to have a Captain Kirk as a "welcome key addition" to Strange New Worlds. 🤦
