Space X’s Elon Musk celebrated the Feb. 6. 2018, first flight of its Falcon Heavy rocket by launching a cherry-red Tesla roadster with a space-suited mannequin driver into solar orbit. Video low-orbit view here.
“The Tesla will likely make quite a few laps around the sun before its deep-space adventure comes to an end. An orbit-modeling study performed last year predicted that the space car will eventually slam into either Venus or Earth, probably within the next few tens of millions of years.”
When you’re filthy rich you can do anything, obviously. Even evade the environmental wackos who might have held this up. Too late, guys, the roadster is now about 226 million miles away. And probably a wreck.

“Democrats are now the party of the rich! Not all kinds of rich people, of course. Mostly so-called ‘creative class’ types in the coastal regions, in tech, finance, and entertainment. People who make things out of raw materials—not so much.”
Because those people have turned Republican. They’re why Trump won and may go on winning this year and in 2020. And may be joined by Trump-backed Tea Party types as the establishment GOP is defeated. Because the working class get out and vote, while the coastal “rich” often can’t be bothered.

Indeed, it certainly looks that way given the distortion at the heart of the story.
“The Post does not provide the full transcript of the question, from Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), and Sessions’s answer. Instead it summarizes the exchange in a way that makes it seem that Sessions was asked if there was any contact at all between the campaign and representatives of the Russian government.”
And Session promptly denied the truth of the piece.

…Columbus sailed the ocean blue. And Judaism was banned in Spain.
“…but many Jews, including the Rodriguez family, continued to secretly cling to the Jewish faith and rituals, while living publicly as Catholics. The fearsome Spanish Inquisition ruthlessly hunted these secret Jews, torturing and executing anyone suspected of engaging in Jewish rituals.”
A Rodriguez heir eventually fled to Mexico but found the Inquisition was there ahead of him and so he continued to be a Catholic in public and a Jew in private until about 1590 when the family was found out and tortured and executed.
Today a small, handwritten diary survives them. It’s a compelling story worth a read. Especially when you consider one of its meanings: that Jews were in the New World before the Pilgrims arrived.
I’ve heard for years that the Clintons and their staffs did much damage to the White House, in particular things that would cause the incoming Bush administration time, trouble and money to repair. But until now I’d never seen any proof. This is from a GAO report in PDF format you can access on your own:
“Incidents such as the removal of [W] keys from computer keyboards; the theft of various items; the leaving of certain voice mail messages, signs, and written messages; and the placing of glue on desk drawers, clearly were done intentionally…
“…about two dozen prank signs, printed materials, stickers, or written messages that were affixed to walls or desks; placed in copiers, desks, and cabinets; or placed on the floor. They said some of these were derogatory and offensive in nature about the president, and sometimes there were multiple copies in certain locations…
“a total of 10 to 11 missing doorknobs, which may have been historic originals; an EOP official, a GSA official, and a Secret Service official said that a presidential seal 12 inches in diameter was stolen; two EOP staff said they observed a total of 9 to 11 missing television remote controls; and two EOP staff said that two cameras were missing. In addition, two EOP officials said that about 20 cellular telephones could not be located in the office suite where they belonged….
“Two EOP staff said that they saw a total of 5 to 6 telephone lines “ripped” (not simply disconnected) or pulled from walls, and another EOP employee said that at least 25 cords were pulled from walls in two rooms….”
Aren’t she and Slick going to have fun if she wins the election? When he’s not groping interns.
In response to his whine about taking it personally if blacks don’t vote for you-know-who.
“…The enthusiasm level for Hillary Clinton in the black Community in Florida is swimming with the Tidy Bowl man. Trust me, as it currently stands, folks will not be standing in line for hours to vote for her.”
Not to the Hildabitch, of course, but who cares what the secretly Parkinson’s Diseased presidential candidate thinks about anything?
I’m going for the coffee mug. But the “Adorable Deplorable” tee shirt beckons.
