Sunrise, October 10th.



Sunrise advice: It's best 10 minutes or so before the sun rises and when there are some good clouds. You don't have to get yourself out there every morning, but it's easy to see when it's one of the best mornings for sunrise.

Nice photos. Make me want some coffee.

The clouds see sunrise before you do. That's how the sun illuminates the bottoms of the clouds.

If there are no clouds, you can follow the shadow of the earth in the blue, before sunrise.

Same for sunset.

Sunrise advice: set the color balance for "daylight", not "auto".

The other day I had to hit the road early, just as the sky was starting to get light. I crested a hill I have driven over hundreds of times, and the edge of a “mackerel scale” cirrocumulus cloud formation was being lit from below. Beautiful.

It's either a sunrise or a multi-megaton weapon some considerable distance away. Considering the sun is a giant megaton weapon some considerable distance away, I'm right on both counts.

Either way very cool. Very pretty.

Kant, more than 200 years ago, said natural beauty is far superior to the beauty of human art. Now I know what he means.

My wife, a nice Catholic girl, would call that a Holy Card Sky.

Wealth gap closing.
Lower classes wages increasing more than upper class.
Low inflation.
Gas prices down because of Texas/North Dakota.
We drilled our way out.

And Democratics contemplate impeachment.
Trump polling near 30% with black men.
Over 10% with black women.
45%+ with latinos.

Democratics were promised there would be no math.

It's photos like these that make me think it might be good to get up early a few days each year.

It could happen

Photos are beautiful and make me think of Genesis 1:

And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

Is Elizabeth Warren lying or is this an example of the malleability of human memory? Of course if this is not lying and is instead an example of the ease with which false memories can be acquired, there is still the puzzle of how it is that so often these false memories are self-serving.

Matt Christiansen does a great job of showing the falseness of Elizabeth Warren's account of what happened.

Now somehow I feel like I can't talk about a Democratic politician lying without talking about Trump. One difference is that Trump says so many questionable things that I think most people filter what he says, and use their minds to evaluate it. That doesn't mean that people's judgements are all that great. But Trump is an 'interactive' president.

Now Warren if she became president, she would be a 'true believer' president. And most of the people listening to her will not question what she says. And certainly most of the media won't. Heck, they are likely to amplify what she says and define anyone that questions it as evil.

We have a great deal of freedom, personal psychological freedom, with Trump as President. We will lose that if Warren gets in office.

It's the strangest thing, but somehow even though I feel that Trump tells more porkers than any politician I've ever seen, practically speaking he is also somehow the most honest president I have seen in my lifetime. We know more about what Trump thinks and why he thinks it than almost anyone else on the national scene.

Many other politicians are successfully hiding something big from the electorate about what they think or what they will do if they are given power.

So to boil it down, Elizabeth Warren's falsehoods, her capacity for deceiving us and deceiving herself, are more significant because the media, and Hollywood, and the schools are going to cram them down our throats.

Red sky morning, sailor's take warning.

I think something happened with this Turkey invasion into Syria that neither Trump or the "deep state" was ready for; they are not happy about it, and there is chaos inside the administration about what to do to catch up.
Stand by for further developments.

"We know more about what Trump thinks and why he thinks it than almost anyone else on the national scene."

Again, Julian Assange said Trump was unique because when WikiLeaks put out a request for dirt on Trump, it was all the sort of stuff that was already public.

@Daskol has the right idea.

we thought of @Ken B. from last nite:

The lint in my navel is pale blue-purple. It reminds me of the sky at dusk on the Serengeti

My question on the current "China Rules!" situation:

"Suddenly" we are getting a peek at just how much that 4000-year-old Borg has commandeered our private sector corporations.

Makes me think back a couple of years ago to the smattering of dangerous, deep links between China and the Democratic Party (the Clinton e-mails hacked into for real-time access, the 20-year chauffeur from Feinstein,...)

How much is the Democratic Party KowTowing to who-knows-who out of China? As much as Marriott hotels? As much as the NBA?

How could we know how much they are compromised?

godspeed, america and the world.
