Dear KAG: 20201222 Open Thread

So…what do we think…ARE WE THERE YET?

Yeah, I don’t think we’re there yet, either, so in the meantime….

Remember what happened on the Fourth of July in Los Angeles where the local “authorities” told the people to essentially stand down, and just not celebrate, especially with fireworks?

We the People decided to flip a symbolic bird to the establishment.

And now that the powers that wanna be are flexing their…uh, well, I guess those are biceps, given the Porkulous Part Deux just passed, they seem to think we don’t see the money they are awarding themselves and leaving the peasants to starve…We the People are taking their message of “let’s cancel Christmas” and essentially telling them to shove it.

In this writer’s hometown, for the first time in memory, all live Christmas trees are sold out all over town AND HAVE BEEN FOR DAYS. We lucked out in that the lot where we buy ours was unloading a fresh shipment of trees the day we went to buy. In addition to the real pine trees now in living rooms across the Bi-State, outdoor lights are hung, tickets and reservations for Church services are sold out in many places….

It’s as if the people took XVII to heart with the last drop.

And now, many out on the fruited plain are trying to get the American spirit even more jump started.

How did your mask strike go?

We can pretty much all agree the powers that wannabe did this:

To prevent a repeat of history:

So…what do a bunch of music composers write when it was really hot outside before air conditioning existed, and they were trying to think of things that were really cold? A classic, that’s what.

And a reminder to take the pledge:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

And now for the nitty gritty of the Q Tree 5 minute, stand up, Tuesday morning meeting version of the Daily Thread.

Ahem.

Guidelines for posting and discussion on this site were outlined by our host, WolfM00n. Please, review them from time to time.

The discourse on this site is to be CIVIL – no name calling, baiting, or threatening others here is allowed. Those who are so inclined may visit Wolf’s other sanctuary, the U-Tree, to slog it out with anyone who happens to still be hanging out there.

This site is a celebration of the natural rights endowed to humans by our Creator as well as those enshrined in the Bill of Rights adopted in the founding documents of the United States of America. Within the limits of law, how we exercise these rights is part of the freedom of our discussion.

Fellow tree dweller Wheatie gave us some good reminders on the basics of civility in political discourse:

  1. No food fights.
  2. No running with scissors.
  3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.

And, a new addition – Auntie DePat’s requests as we are all, ahem, adults, not kids like the two boys in the family room fighting over the remote:

If you see something has not been posted, do us all a favor, and post it. Please, do not complain that it has not been done yet.

Please, check the CURRENT page, at least, of posts for the item you have to bring to the tree. It may well have been posted previously. Twinsing can’t usually be helped, but for Q-Treepers pressed for time, all efforts to keep the current page, at least, repeat free will prevent additional comments that call for the scroll wheel.

The scroll wheel on your mouse can be your friend. As mature adults, please use it here in the same manner you would in avoiding online porn.

Thank you so much for any and all attention to such details. It is GREATLY appreciated by more than one party here.

__________________________________________________

Today, we celebrate two of the most consequential women in Scripture:

1 SAMUEL 2:1, 4-8

1Hannah also prayed and said, “My heart exults in the LORD; my strength is exalted in the LORD. My mouth derides my enemies, because I rejoice in thy salvation. 4The bows of the mighty are broken, but the feeble gird on strength. 5Those who were full have hired themselves out for bread, but those who were hungry have ceased to hunger. The barren has borne seven, but she who has many children is forlorn. 6The LORD kills and brings to life; he brings down to Sheol and raises up. 7The LORD makes poor and makes rich; he brings low, he also exalts. 8He raises up the poor from the dust; he lifts the needy from the ash heap, to make them sit with princes and inherit a seat of honor. For the pillars of the earth are the LORD’S, and on them he has set the world.

LUKE 1:46-56

46And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord, 47and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, 48for he has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden. For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed; 49for he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name. 50And his mercy is on those who fear him from generation to generation. 51He has shown strength with his arm, he has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts, 52he has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted those of low degree; 53he has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent empty away. 54He has helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy, 55as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his posterity for ever.” 56And Mary remained with her about three months, and returned to her home.

As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome. Via con Dios.

Christmas Morning

‘Tis the morning of Christmas and all through the house
The whole family is stirring, even the mouse.
The stockings still hang from the mantel in pairs,
As the pine from the tree fills the room’s air.

The sun at dawn gives it’s warm, golden glow,
Glinting from crystals on the new fallen snow.
There’s noise upstairs – the kids jump from their beds,
With pattering footfalls on the stair treads.

I’ve coffee in my mug and Mom’s making her tea,
As the kids burst in and head straight for the tree.
We all gather ‘round with the presents piled near,
Our family immersed in the festive good cheer.

With lights softly glowing and the angel on top,
Activity and talking all come to a stop.
The angel above reminds us of the night
The shepherds all witnessed a glorious sight.

A multitude of heavenly host appeared
To proclaim to the shepherds “Your Savior is here!”
The subject of Christmas isn’t presents, you see,
And it’s not Santa Claus, though he’s nice as can be.

When Christmas Day comes, we celebrate the birth
Of Jesus, our Savior – when God came to earth.
We now all hold hands, and we all bow our heads
To thank God for His Son, who died in our stead.

He covered our sins so we could draw near
To the throne of our God – approach without fear.
Then He rose from the grave, to give us new life,
Freeing us from the world, its sin and its strife.

One day in the future, He’ll come again
To raise us to life and to bring us to Him,
And the splendors of earth will all fade away
In the light of His glory and grace on that day.
 
And so, this Christmas, as you gather near
For presents, feasting and lots of good cheer,
Remember that Jesus was born to die,
To save us from sin – our debt satisfied.

But all is not sad, He rose from the grave
In total victory. A new life He gave;
New life to live and new hope to receive
To you and to me and to all who believe.

Let’s all remember as we go on our way,
The full meaning of each Christmas Day.
To banish darkness, God gave us His Light,
And seeing, we live with favor in His sight.

–   –   –   –   –   –   –   –   –   –   –   –   –

And may I wish to all my QTree friends,
The joy of a Christmas that never ends,
That you receive God’s blessings from above,
That you all live lives immersed in His love.

And here it is . . .

“My heart exults in the LORD; my strength is exalted in the LORD. My mouth derides my enemies, because I rejoice in thy salvation.”

. . . our attitude to hold close for the entire Christmas season . . . and well beyond!

Deplorable Patriot

Everyone gets something different out of it. I was just struck by the parallel of Anna/Hannah’s canticle with the Magnificat. Both from women who tend to be ignored and forgotten and should never be given their roles in Scripture.

Linda

Something else in the Porkulus bill we didn’t know about.

https://twitter.com/JxhnBinder/status/1341155499530661889?s=20

Wolf Moon

The one where they can throw us in jail and take our guns for Twitter meme “copyright violations” is a new low.

Linda

That’s in the bill??? Why do I ask? Of course it is. This whole bill was a huge FU to the American people.

Wolf Moon

“Streaming copyrighted materials”. It’s in a tweet on the Porkulus thread!

gil00

What???? They really wrote this in?

Wolf Moon

I specified Twitter, but yeah, it applies. What it does is give cover to cracking down on memes. Social media and Soros AGs can “pretend not to know” that satire, parody, etc. are protected speech, and play their phony copyright games more strongly.

patfrederick

music as well!

Wolf Moon

Yikes. THAT could be rough.

patfrederick

would that affect rallies??

Wolf Moon

Kinda doubt it. Trump has withstood musicians screaming b/c of smart licensing.

LOL!

Heartbreak Hotel for Wokesters! 😀

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=trump+campaign+music+licensing&t=brave&ia=web

Wolf Moon

What it really does is put “Woke, Inc.” in charge of us all. Corporate socialism – America’s very own unique variety of the beast.

churchmouse

Yes. See my reply to Linda above with the tweet.

gil00

Gobsmacked.

churchmouse

Anything to stop people communicating with each other.

para59r

Republican Senator Tom Tillis. There is some hype about this from the against crowd. Over all it needs more scrutiny. My understanding at this point is it does not dig down to punish normal peeps (memes, youtube types) however it may still put a damper on their activities. It’s supposed to be aimed more at the Justin Beiber’s and the advertisers of the world but could be wrong.

Deplorable Patriot

I really would like to know how they intend to enforce that.

cthulhu

I really wouldn’t.

Wolf Moon

Picking us off – one at a time – just like now. Only with more ruination, so that more of us are scared by each action against one who steps up too high.

What Jack does on Twitter is pure Chinese communist strategy – “socialism with Chinese characteristics”. The NAIL THAT STICKS UP is BEATEN DOWN.

This is a most heinous and EVIL bill. It is designed to force Trump not to sign it. To give both Democrats and RINOs the appearance of charity, while Trump is forced to be Scrooge.

These people are wicked, but CHINA is wickeder.

Don’t hit DEMOCRATS. Don’t hit RINOs. Don’t even hit Chinese.

HIT CCP.

piper567

wolfie, as I understand it, the Omnibus Bill is not a Budget, so Trump has certain powers to “manage” the fund distribution.
https://www.livetradingnews.com/the-1-3-t-omnibus-bill-is-not-a federal-budget-79288.html
So, given that Military spending is included, he may not veto.
???

Wolf Moon

I have no idea what the truth is here – I imagine even the Trump legal teams and Q team will have to strategize a way forward.

piper567

wolfie, yes, and I do trust them to not allow for such egregious dissemination of our tax dollars as this Bill seems to call for.

come to timmy

Kind of a dead giveaway they know the vast majority of Americans voted for Trump.

singingsoul1

Why did republicans go along with it? Where is the leadership and who from POTUS team negotiated this monster? They are responsible. Democrats are what they are but our site should know better.
You know what they think we are dependent of them because the Marxists site is worse. Oh really?his will stop not with our moaning an d groning it will stop them with our votes.

patfrederick

I understand this is in place of a budget–which the dumbasses are supposed to produce yearly–so in years past, we may have always contributed x amount of money to smaller poorer nations–but we are in tough economic times–our country should be FIRST in congress’s minds–but we are not. because THEY suffered no consequences of this pandemic, they figure it’s just business and usual. send foreign countries cash, they remit half back thru shell companies (donating to campaign coffers?) and congress keeps getting richer with our money.

singingsoul1

Now that we know the game they play concerning aid to countries I am not as charitable anymore.

churchmouse

Yes, it is in the bill:

evereleutheros

I really don’t see how they can go any lower, they’re already slithering across the ground like the snakes that they are.

mollypitcher5

The whole bill seems like they sat around brainstorming on what would infuriate conservatives the most. Vindictive bullies. This “bipartisan” bill is a bad omen of what kind of retribution they’ll take if POTUS can’t beat this election fraud.

Wolf Moon

Agreed. It will be ugly.

Kinthenorthwest

There is no turning back anymore
Either we commit ourselves to being Americans or there will be no America

gil00

Theyre going to go full stalin and then some, dont you doubt it.

mollypitcher5

The beauty of it is that they’ve primed the pump with their psycho rabid libtards who will lap up every time they can snitch on one of the deplorables,big or small offense.

How can they miss when the tech overlords can pull up anything we’ve ever put online.

They already mass-murdered the elderly by seeding their facilities with the infected, while cutting off any contact. I’m sure they’d love to go full Holodomor on all the rest of the Deplorables.

This song comes to mind from Christian rock band, the 77’s

Snake from the album “Drowning With Land In Sight”

(Mike Roe/Mark Harmon)

I’m the path of least resistance
I’m a highway wide and clear
I’m the French bread in the desert
That you’ll eat when death is near

I’m a snake (I stand tall)
Snake (Watch me crawl)

Put me on a pedestal
Put me on a pulpit
Slither, slither, slither, slither
I can be a victim
I can be a culprit
Slither, slither, slither, slither

I’m a snake (I stand tall)
Snake (When I crawl)
I won’t break (When you fall)
Snake (Up against the wall)

I can be a president
I can be a pawn
Slither, slither, slither, slither
I’m crawling in your TV
Crawling on your lawn
Slither, slither, slither, slither
I’m crawling up your bedpost
Crawling thru your door
Slither, slither, slither, slither
I’m crawling out your bookcase
And right across the floor
Slither, slither, slither, slither

I’m the water in the desert
That you knew was a mirage
I’m the fake gem in the pawn shop
That you hocked and then re-bought
I’m the talent that you buried
And lost interest in and on
I’m the life that you made sport of
Dropped the ball and then you run

I’m a snake (I stand tall)
Snake (Watch me crawl)
I won’t break (When you fall)
Snake (Up against the wall)

I’m crawling when you’re happy
Crawling when you’re sad
Slither, slither, slither, slither
I’m crawling up your mother
And I’m crawling down your dad
Slither, slither, slither, slither
I’m crawling on your lovers
And I’m crawling on your friends
Slither, slither, slither, slither
I’m crawling everywhere
‘Cuz my crawling never ends
Slither, slither, slither, slither

I’m crawling, crawling, crawling, crawling
Slither, slither, slither, slither
I’m crawling, crawling, crawling, crawling
Slither, slither, slither, slither

One Vote

If Biden won it fair & square
He’d want the world to be aware
That all his votes were meant for him
But, alas, his future’s dim

The Libs are fighting tooth & nail
To hide their ballots’ crooked trails
“No one can look, no one can see
This vote is good; secure as can be”

Trump wants this vote open & free
So all can look, so all can see
That for one person, there’s one vote
As our Supreme Court clearly wrote

So why do Libs just run & hide
And say to transparency “Denied!”?
They cheated, lied and stole the votes
It’s treason for these Lib turncoats

Trump’s team works above & beyond
To ensure the Libs won’t abscond
With all their ill botten gooty
It’s not just right . . . it’s their duty

All the Libs act high & mighty
But PTrump says “Then, alrighty”
“You thought you were too big to fail
So now enjoy your life in jail”

“In the end, liberty & justice
Rule the day; people will trust us
We’ll restore our country’s honor
But for the Libs, they’re all goners”

pgroup2

Sadly accurate.

para59r

suggests minor tweak…
*As our forefathers clearly wrote.

bakocarl

Initially, I wrote those exact words, but our forefathers didn’t allow women to vote, or slaves. “One vote one person” didn’t come about until much later and is usually associated with the equal representation in voting rulings by the Supreme Court.

bakocarl

It occurred to me that, initially, only landowners could vote. I’f love to find appropriate words other than “Supreme Court” but . . .

ahh good point. Hard to say what are the right words then as the nuance will likely go over some peoples heads like mine for example.  🙃

Patrick Byrne has stirred up a lot of controversy that really isn’t helpful. I’ve been a little suspicious of him from the start. He admitted that he didn’t even vote for Trump. So why is he suddenly in the middle of everything?

Deplorable Patriot

“GET OUT OF JAIL FREE”

He essentially confessed publicly to being an accessory to treason. I think he cut a deal.

Wolf Moon

The “get Hillary” bribe-to-catch-to-own plan sounds very “FIB” – I can believe it. CIA and Hillary were close enough that CIA backed her in the election openly (e.g., Morell) – but not enough control. Obama/Mooch story makes gobs of sense. That would have been through Lynch and racial prostration minion Comey. All adds up.

Den of vipers.

I was not aware that this was a mask strike day, but I saw an attractive lady – BECAUSE I COULD SEE HER FACE – going into a fast food restaurant, and thought that was new.

para59r

Yep, mask strike day should turn into unmasked hours at local grocery stores. Just need to get the word out to twenty or thirty or forty like minded individuals, all link up and then rush on in!

Aubergine

That is a fantastic idea!

We should do “unmasked raids” on businesses! We need to plan large groups of people to go at the same time, en masse, to get essentials.

We just overwhelm them with numbers all at once.

Why would DJT ever sign such a bill into law?

Isn’t all the angst much ado about nothing?

Sometime between now and January 20th the whole world is going to change, and even if there are enough votes to override a Presidential veto now, there won’t be after at least half of Congress is arrested for Treason and other High (and low) crimes.

Valerie Curren

That’s Always the point I come beck to also!

patfrederick

POTUS has been encouraging congress to get relief to Americans since the governors are shutting down their businesses. he feels the pain of those whose livelihoods were lost…he wants to help them.
dems are hoping to force him into accepting their crap IF he wants to help us.
but I say take the Chucky Schumer way out. he claims old joe is gonna forgive $50K in student debt for everyone that owes it–all by EO. so why can’t POTUS–by EO–give everyone $2,000 or more???

pgroup2

Actually, he can.

Aubergine

This is an omnibus bill, so maybe that’s the plan?

Doesn’t omnibus mean that the President gets to allocate the funds as he wants?

SteveInCO

Omnibus doesn’t mean that, it just means they piled all the crap into one big pile instead of a bunch of smaller bills.

Aubergine

Ok, thanks.

piper567
Emeraldstar

>> “forgive $50K in student debt” <<

I think that he IRS considers any debt forgiveness to be TAXABLE INCOME in the year the debt is “forgiven”.

Kinda similar to CJ Roberts “judging” that a penalty for NOT joining ACA is a “tax”.

Pretzel logic …

patfrederick

HAHAHAHAHAHA…wouldn’t that be the kick in the ass those delinquents need?
but dems would probably just reform tax law to make a “one time exception”…

bflyjesusgrl

He needs funding, money comes from Congress. UNLESS he can legally find the money from another source like the Treasury General Fund. That’s how he was able to give UE a $300/wk boost when the benefits ran out. There was only so much money, so it didn’t last very long, 4-8wks maybe? Many States didn’t have the money either, so they never kicked in the extra $100/wk.

patfrederick

maybe we can ask the DICTATORSHIP in Sudan…rumor is they got $700,000,000 of OUR money!

Gail Combs

Because a two thirds majority can pass it over a Presidential veto.

ALSO it is CALLED the Covid Relief Bill. That means the Sheeple NEED TO KNOW what is in it to understand WHY POTUS is vetoing their $600 relief check.

para59r

After Jan 3 I don’t think they will be able to overcome the President’s Veto. New Congress will be taking their seats I’m to understand on the 3rd. Pocket veto (hold for 10 days) will be great for exposing the pork and socialists aspects of the bill. That should take us to Jan 1st or 2nd. Congress must vote again. Surely some on our side might think we can hold out long enough to get a better deal and not allow the over ride.

I would dearly love to see them try!

Let them do it, and even succeed!

Expose EVERY LAST ONE of these *&^%$#ing TRAITORS.

Let every GOP pig-RINO vote to override DJT, along with the dims, in BOTH house of criminalgress.

Then disburse NOTHING.

Between now and January 20th, DJT is going to drop the big one, declassify and expose everything, and arrest EVERYBODY.

The ‘Covid-19 relief’ treason package will then be declared null and void, a criminal act of Treason by the defendants (most of Congress) who should be in GITMO by the evening of January 20th.

Cover image: Washington Crossing the Delaware by George Caleb Bingham, oil on canvas, 1856-71

____________

So he crossed the Delaware in a what amounts to a large row boat (yes I know, a ‘Durham’ boat…), seated on a horse, which presumably stood very, very, very still?

cthulhu

The horse was prepared by playing The Ramones’ “I wanna be sedated” for four hours in its stall and giving it sugar lumps that had previously been soaked in a mysterious fluid (Being that syringes capable of subcutaneous injection were only invented in 1844.).

cthulhu

OK, I was originally going to go with the joke that the 3 chords used by the Ramones predate the 1700’s, with backup that the song would be played on acoustic instruments in relays because electric guitars were some decades in the future…..but nobody bit.

Instead, I’ll go with: “the elder brother Washington, Fred, before his boat capsized and George became the leading General of the Revolution.”

The horse was probably so exhausted and so malnourished it was very happy for the chance to stand still. 🤣

It is one reason a lot of the old pony rides had ribby ponies. A pony that was malnourished did not have the energy to be fiesty. That is ALSO why they want to make Americans vegans. No Meat (or supplements) = No FIGHT!

Yeah, I like that other painting you normally see better, though I understand even it has issues.

Deplorable Patriot

I thought the change might be nice. The figures are more authentic as is the ice floe situation.

Deplorable Patriot

That’s actually a flatboat. Before paddlewheelers that’s what was used on the more shallow rivers and those with ever changing bottoms.

…and according to some very reliable ‘anonymous’ sources of course, they all sang;

“Michael row the boat ashore, hallelujah”

I wish you hadn’t said Michael; these days it calls up an image of a certain alleged tranny.

Pictures from last night. One has a slightly better Jupiter, the other a slightly better Saturn.

You can see a hint of a band across jupiter, running upper left to lower right, a bit above center. From having watched it in a telescope as well last night (clearer in the scope, of course, because it’s designed to do this and the camera really isn’t), I can assure you there was indeed a prominent band there.

Very nice. Even with my bouncy binox, I could see that Saturn had a bit of an oval to it when I observed it at 5:30 and 5:40…..and at 5:50 it was obscured by a wisp of cloud and just a bright spot.

Now we turn around the solstice, with the sun ascendant — every day a little longer, though it still be cold. First we have more light each day, and then the heat.

SteveInCO

If I recall correctly, the analemma perversely either is going to continue making sunsets earlier for a bit (though sunrises are getting earlier faster, so the day is lengthening), or it’s the other way around; sunsets are already happening later and have been for a few days. I just can’t remember which one it is.

In other words if you were to judge solely by sunset time rather than by length of day, you’d mistakenly place the solstice on the wrong day.

cthulhu

Well, we do live in the era of the internet.

For my location, the official times are (listed DATE, SUNRISE, SUNSET — am/pm omitted)

18 7:16 4:52.
19 7:17 4:52.
20 7:17 4:53.
21 7:18 4:53.
22 7:18 4:54.
23 7:19 4:54.
24 7:19 4:55.

So sunrise is getting later and sunset is getting later as well….and by almost the same amount.

SteveInCO

Yeah, I could have researched a bit but I know the last time I looked it seemed like I really had to dig for the info, but anyhow, the sun set earlier on the 18th than it did on the 21st. That’s the effect of the sun moving practically horizontally along the bottom bend of the analemma.

cthulhu

I should note that the daily rate of change in the length of a day is greatest at the equinoxes and least at the solstices. Something about the first derivative of a sine wave, IIRC.

So right now, we can know the turnaround scientifically, but not know it observationallly. Later, we’ll know it observationally, but won’t really feel it. Then we’ll feel the day length change, but it won’t reawaken Nature. And then it will be Spring.

SteveInCO

Pretty much got it knocked.

In Colorado of course we don’t have those seasons, we have almost winter, winter, still winter, and construction.

Where I live it has been known to snow every month other than July and August. Go up in elevation and even that changes for the worse.

cthulhu

Out here in California, we have a slightly different timetable. Our seasons are drought, earthquakes, fires, and mudslides.

Drought, so no plant-roots knit the hillsides together; earthquakes, because it’s an excuse for not clearing brush; fires, because the whole place is a tinderbox if not maintained properly; and mudslides because two drops of water on a burned-off hillside will rapidly decrease the altitude of any topsoil.

OTOH, the Fiancee and I have taken hikes on Christmas Day when I was in shorts and a light sweatshirt.

Teagan

last Xmas we had a large party the night after and everyone ended up sitting outside …this year it’s forecasted to be in the 20’s.

Teagan

Ha ha..We can relate. Stayed several days in Steamboat Springs one August to play golf before continuing to Carmel for a wedding. Woke up to snow, several inches, one morning. Of course, came unprepared but strangely enough we could buy wool caps and gloves in the pro shop…big clue right there.
Continued on to Carmel….shrouded in fog and very cool, of course.
We had to remind ourselves it was indeed August!

Deplorable Patriot

You would bring trigonometry into it.

cthulhu

(1) The trig is just there, whether you recognize it or not; (2) you object to the trig, but not to the calculus?; (3) it’s somehow worse when I’m involved?!?

And, of course, my perpetual observation that trig is dirt easy if you teach it from the perspective of analytical geometry…..which hadn’t been invented when they were originally doing all the trig stuff…..which is why trig got a reputation for being difficult — it’d be like teaching driving without first having the concept of left and right.

Deplorable Patriot

I agree trig is easy. Easiest math class I ever took.

anonymoushorse

I hated math (and school in general). I excelled at underachieving.

SteveInCO

Memorizing a bunch of identities. There were twenty-odd identities if I recall.

I don’t do as well with memorizing, until I find a pattern I could use. I could eventually memorize one identity, then remember to change the sign and flip some other thing around as well to get a similar identity.

If you can sort of remember the identity but aren’t quite sure exactly what it is there’s a trick involving Euler’s Identity that will let you get to a lot of them on the fly, but that was most definitely NOT taught in trig class.

SteveInCO

And oh by the way, there is no such thing as non-bouncy binocs…unless they’re affixed to a tripod.

Someone I was with when observing with my scope tonight tried for quite some time to simply take a photo through the eyepiece with their cell phone camera.

Basically no matter how still they tried to hold the phone, Jupiter and Saturn would simply flip in and out of the camera field of view in less than a second.

I got ONE photograph that way, and it turns out I got a better Saturn than they did. Pure blind luck.

anonymoushorse

“bouncey binox”… sounds like a stripper.

rayzorback

Where’s Hunter?

Teagan

What is the black band, Steve? Now that you pointed it out we both can see it.
we both experienced Jupiter, especially, “dancing” like crazy when we used the binoculars but not with our eyes. At first I thought it was just unsteadiness of our arms and hands, but even after we anchored on the car it still danced.

SteveInCO

The dancing was because handheld, even on a car, isn’t as steady as a tripod.

If you’re talking about the faint stripe across Jupiter, Jupiter has dark and light belts across it, and that particular belt just happens to be darker than the others for some reason.

gil00

I couldnt get my son to use the binoculars, even holdingbit steady, but he could see them fairly well. He thought it was neat. The binoculars helped me best though.

SteveInCO

My scope was fantastic yesterday, the clouds went away by 2PM. There was a bit of haze in the air but not too much, and I was able to put extenders on my camera; those shots are at 700+ mm.

gil00

I love the clarity you got.

“Yes, we think we’re going to actually be able to contest this.”

*Jumping up and down in frustration*
I’m all in favor of what they’re doing, but something is wrong when we have a massive amount of fraud, with mountains of evidence, and we think we’re actually going to be able to contest it❓ And we-the-people have to sit here and watch this, knowing our country is being stolen❓

The depth of corruption is overwhelming. The fact that no court has actually looked at the evidence, a month and a half after the election, is appalling. And we have to rely on Congress and electors? What if even one of the crucial states doesn’t come through?

I don’t want Pres. Trump to eke out a win with a tiny majority of electors, when he won in maybe the biggest landslide ever. I want the votes counted, and I want the world to see that we didn’t sign up for this corruption and globalism. Then I want every last one of the cheaters, corrupt Congress critters, and judges prosecuted and punished. That’s what draining the swamp looks like. We need shock and awe, sturm and drang, and justice enacted with a swift sword. They need to see that we are in charge. Nothing less than complete revelation and utter defeat will do.

I’ll be happier when “afoot” becomes “at hand”.

So, yesterday, our Congressional overlords posted a 5,000+ page $3 TRILLION dollar spending bill online for the public to examine mere hours before BOTH chambers voted upon and passed it.

Reread that.

Congress voted on a 5,600 page bill it had less than 6 hours to read, and they passed it by overwhelming majority in both chambers of Congress.

Reread that.

.
It is challenging to think of ALL the ways this bill…and the MANUFACTURED CRISIS which created the majority of it’s stated need(s)….is the most vulgar, insulting, infuriating FUCK YOU to every single American. It is both an OUTRAGE and it is outrageous.

And PDJT has indicated that he will sign this bill, because if he doesn’t, millions of Americans and businesses stand to go bankrupt.

Of course, all of this is by design, intent, timing, and planning.

So glad for GAB – also thankful not many went to Parler – have heard some horror stories about Parler – have you?

Wolf Moon

Here is what I’ve heard…..

Not real free speech.
Not robust against deplatforming.
Conservative, Inc.
Manipulated visibility (pay to play).
“Influencers”.
Slow and low-tech.
AOL of social media.

I trust Gab more, but that’s me. I’m a free speech hardcore. I defend the right to speak of people who I find scary, dumb, nasty, and even dangerous. Why? Because THEIR free speech is MY free speech. Only Gab allows the rankest of the rank to speak!

duchess01

Hmmm…very interesting, Wolf – will keep that in mind if/when someone asks – appreciate your analysis – makes sense.

Wolf Moon

Parler is right for some people, but not for me. I like Dan Bongino. I think he liked Parler so much, he partnered with them.

The left hates Parler because it’s way more normie than Gab, so it can’t be accused of being a Nazi hangout.

People should not choose Gab just because I like it. Much of my reason for pushing Gab is as a tactic of WAR – not because I think it’s a good fit for people here. We need a comms base that will actually be around when the left goes postal on free speech.

Gab will be standing strong for free speech when Parler folds to the tyrants, if it comes to that.
