If you thought dipshit donnie was bad

Just add a dose of the Texas legislature. (Thanks to TexasTowlie for posting this just thought it should receive more attention.)

Excerpt from the article.
"The prison firms could skip all the burdensome regulations that other child care facilities must deal with."


Why worry about such silly things like sanitation, responsibility for administering medication, back ground checks, and things like a few hours of training a year. In the new child/family immigration detention centers

How Old are Martian Gullies?

Gullies eroded into the steep inner slope of an impact crater at this location appear perfectly pristine in this image captured by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO). Although at first glance it may appear that there are craters superimposed on the gully fans, inspection of HiRISE stereo coverage shows that the craters lie only on the pre-gully terrain.

Distinctive colors in the gully channels and alcoves offer another indication of youth and recent activity. The pre-gully landscape is covered by secondary craters from nearby Gasa Crater, estimated to be about 1 million years old. Although some have suggested that the Martian gullies are also about a million years old and formed in a different environment, we now know that they are continuing to form today.

The map is projected here at a scale of 50 centimeters (19.7 inches) per pixel. [The original image scale is 50.8 centimeters (20 inches) per pixel (with 2 x 2 binning); objects on the order of 152 centimeters (59.9 inches) across are resolved.] North is up

The University of Arizona, Tucson, operates HiRISE, which was built by Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp., Boulder, Colo. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of Caltech in Pasadena, California, manages the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter Project for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington.

See the article at their site along with the picture. They have some older articles on the side bar that are really worth looking at.

Asking for some help about one of Ivanka's books

The other day on one of the news shows (I think it was a newscast can't remember for sure.) they showed a excerpt from one of ivanka's books with her saying it was okay to lie. And making a pretty long justification of why it's okay.

Barack and Michelle's twitter pages

Sounds like he may be using his twitter @BarackObama account more so for those interested here's both of their pages.



Louisiana ad here causing problems

Just wondering if anyone else is having the same thing happen? I will scroll down the thread and it bounces me back up to the top where the video is playing. I have been on DU for a few hours this morning and haven't had a problem. It just turned up about 5 minutes ago.

Otis Redding - (Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay (Official Video)

I have some songs what stop me in my tracks. That I have to listen to all the way through. If I am in a car and get to my destination I sit in the car until finished. RandySF posted one of them the Moody Blues video. Haven't heard it in a long time. But it would stop me in my tracks. Here are some of my stop me in my tracks songs. A couple of these are slow dance with grandma in the kitchen songs. (I'm grandpa just in case you don't understand the grandma part. )

Stand By Me, Ben E King, 1961

Bill Withers - Lean On Me

Bill Withers - Ain't No Sunshine

And just to break it up

NASA's tumblr page

If you haven't seen it but like the photos from outer space. Their tumblr earthday page is really neat. You can see the photos and they also have links to down load different resolution pics there.


repub's definition of a sanctuary city

Any city who expects their police department to do the jobs they were hired for. Like fight crime in the city and not be ICE agents.

When I hear sanctuary city from a bunch of dipshit politicians or the media I cringe. I have been hearing iit all today in the news. This is nothing but a catch phrase the repub's came up with. MSM and others have taken the bait on this phrase with out even thinking what the repub's are saying.

I'm so confused

Through out the time I have been watching presidents come and go. Nothing compares to this. I have seen different scandals, criminal acts, stupid shit, etc. But I was always able to keep up at least with the main gist of what was happening.

This WH has so much baggage I can't keep up.

I mean think about it. There is so much going on you would really need several data bases.

A data base on stupid stuff said by WH reps and the prez. This could include just being ignorant, conflicting stories, out right lies, etc. The who knew it was this complicated stuff coming from the WH.

A data base on the personal ties and conflicts of interest for all in the WH. Not just during the elections but on going. Including assets of the family but also the people he brought in. Loans, partnerships, property sales, initiation fees to his golf clubs, etc

A data base on the elections/transition/presidency, the communications with foreign agents, unregistered lobbyist, and special interests.

A data base on who was involved from foreign governments. The oligarchs, ambassador, possible spies, etc.

A data base on what, who, where, when on attempted and successful attempts by foreign actors to influence the elections.

I probably missed some but you get the idea. I mean even possible mafia ties. This WH has so many plots and sub-plots it boggles the mind. And this is just getting near the 100 day mark.
