16FEB2019 – OCF Update

This has been a pretty eventful week compared to the preceding few.  William Barr was approved as the new Attorney General.  The President has declared a National Emergency on the southern border and expressed his intention to use that declaration to build a wall on the border.  The useless Congress has produced a bloated awful budget document.  The President continues to chip away at the Obama legacy such as the “disparate impact” criterion by which even good legislation is made worse.  Amazon has reneged on their decision to put a headquarters in New York City, much to the sorrow of Mayor De Blasio and Governor Cuomo (they really need the tax dollars) but much to the delight of that dingbat Ocasio-Cortez.  Even the Chicago Police Department couldn’t acquiesce in Jussie Smollett’s lies about being attacked by MAGA quoting noose brandishing hooligans and seem to have identified the alleged attackers as a Nigerian actor on the show Empire and his brother.  Another four or five Democrats have declared their 2020 Presidential race aspirations.  One of them, Elizabeth Warren was mocked mercilessly by Howie Carr in the Boston Herald because of her ongoing exposure as a lying hypocrite who used her fake native American ethnicity as a ticket to the Harvard Law School faculty and thereby fame, fortune and a senate seat.

I have some more winter photos and I’m embarking on a project in astrophotography.  And because this is Orion’s Cold Fire my first subject will be in the constellation of Orion and I’ll use the Orion 10010 Atlas Pro AZ/EQ-G Computerized GoTo Telescope Mount to track with.  I’m very excited but full of trepidation over the time needed to master the equipment side of it.

On the review side I’ll continue to plow through the Twilight Zone and I’m a third of the way through the latest Galaxy’s Edge volume (Retribution) and will review it when completed.

Now I’m off to my grandson’s basketball game.  Have a nice Saturday everybody.

      Nominally the center but his best play in the game was a break away lay up. He did very well against the other team’s much taller center.

    The hard left “progressives” are dancing in the streets at the driving away of an employer who would have provided “25,000 jobs at an average of $150,000/year). These are the same people who are ecstatic about retroactive abortion of already birthed babies and are convinced that building a wall to protect a border is immoral despite that border having leaked 10’s of millions of people.

    Anybody remember DC Comics Bizarro world?

      I think the good news is now we can’t mistake these people for our friends. Literally they are our worst enemies, much more dangerous than Soviets or jihadists.
