Let’s kill some birds

While cattle pile up in the West (because the Repugs won’t pass a farm bill) and relief is not coming (because the Repugs decided to shut down government for 16 days) Noem, still in denial, and can’t comprehend why cattle ranchers are not getting relief (you shut down the government, McFly), she still finds time to shoot dumb, skinny, flavorless birds imported from China.

As I heard someone say today at a gathering, “How can someone be that stupid?”

Old Stuff

A friend bought a vehicle recently on an auction, and while cleaning it he found this. I found it ironic it was in the center console of a law enforcement vehicle. Weird.

How much do municipal outdoor pools cost taxpayers during the winter?

I have had it with this talking point from city councilors and people in our local media;

“It just makes me sick when I drive past Drake Springs pool during the winter and see it sitting empty.” (sic)

First off, get over your sour grapes already. Voters CHOSE and outdoor pool over an indoor pool. It’s a done deal. Secondly, an indoor municipal pool will cost $$$ to operate year round. How much do our outdoor pools cost us during the winter when they are closed? NOTHING.

“It just makes sick when I drive past Elmwood in the middle of January and don’t see anybody playing golf, what a waste of a good golf course.”

Is ALEC trying to sneak thru the backdoor? Of course.

Do you think it is okay that this organization is influencing our State SOS, PUC, AG and legislature? You be the judge;

The Republican Study Committee is laying the groundwork for a new informal partnership with the American Legislative Exchange Council, even as dozens of major corporations cut ties with the conservative nonprofit for its support of controversial voting and gun laws.

The RSC is working quietly with ALEC to host a gathering next Friday at the Heritage Foundation in hopes of establishing an ongoing relationship with the group that would allow federal lawmakers to exchange ideas with state legislators.

Curiosity Lands safely

I just watched this live. Amazing.

There was only about 170,000 live viewers on Ustream. Sad. But a proud moment for our American scientists. Truly.
