This Looks Like a Nice Little Galaxy To Live In

Click the picture to go to the APOD site and get a description.  While there click on the picture to get a large and larger version to explore.

It looks like there would be many more galactic objects to explore with your telescope here than in our pie plate galaxy where much is obscured because it is on the same plane.

Shed Your Guilt. It's Not Working.

We've been bending over for the black community since I was a leetle boy. The projects in Pittsburgh were built before I was even born.  They've been there and in many other cities for 50+ years.  It has not made things better, it has made things worse.  Now in 2014, I have never known a time when the blacks were more racist than they are today.  No doubt, some of this mindset is fueled by the current president and attorney general who not only do not criticize black thugs, they encourage them to think they are above the law.

The black folks who have not joined America are more angry today than they were 50 years ago.  Why is that?

Blacks say they want to be included in American Society.  No they don't.  They separate them selves at every opportunity.  They don't refer to them selves as Americans, instead African-Americans. When they are elected to Congress by Many Americans of different races, they don't refer to them selves as a member of the American Congress. they call them selves the Black Caucus.  Recently I saw the term Hispanic Caucus in the news.  It won't be long before we see islamic Caucus in the news as soon as morons start voting these vermin into political positions.

Does that sound like a society that aligns with America and has America's interests at heart?  It does not to me.  Does that sound like a Congress that aligns itself with ALL Americans?  Hell no.  Parts of it will align with black Americans, Hispanic Americans, islamic Americans - and Screw The Americans.

Stop bending over.  Make everyone who comes here make their own way.  You don't owe anyone shit. The fact that you let them immigrate here is Gift enough.

Hey Man, Tommy Was Over Last Night and Played Tall Fiddler

Here it is.  (Actually, he played this in concert here in Cincinnati and afterwards gave a Lesson on how to play it, which resulted in everyone going home and duplicating the tune afterwards I'm sure)  Tommy puts on a great show and if you get a chance to see him.. tours

Is Islam a Religion or a Cult ?

Answer: Cult

I chose the definition of a cult from here because it was concise and to the point.

 The group displays excessively zealous and unquestioning commitment to its leader and (whether he is alive or dead) regards his belief system, ideology, and practices as the Truth, as law.
muslims will cut your head off if you dis their dead leader, and will kill its own members if they try to leave the cult.
Questioning, doubt, and dissent are discouraged or even punished.
They will kill a muslim who tries to leave the cult
Mind-altering practices (such as meditation, chanting, speaking in tongues, denunciation sessions, and debilitating work routines) are used in excess and serve to suppress doubts about the group and its leader(s).
5 prayer sessions a day. They're all watching you.
The leadership dictates, sometimes in great detail, how members should think, act, and feel (for example, members must get permission to date, change jobs, marry—or leaders prescribe what types of clothes to wear, where to live, whether or not to have children, how to discipline children, and so forth).
See koran. See memri TV. See the women in strict dress coded attire.
The group is elitist, claiming a special, exalted status for itself, its leader(s) and members (for example, the leader is considered the Messiah, a special being, an avatar—or the group and/or the leader is on a special mission to save humanity).
Muslims believe they are the master race above all others.
The group has a polarized us-versus-them mentality, which may cause conflict with the wider society.
Any non-muslim is an infidel to be killed, abused, robbed, raped or otherwise used in any way desired by the muslims.
The leader is not accountable to any authorities (unlike, for example, teachers, military commanders or ministers, priests, monks, and rabbis of mainstream religious denominations).
The Ayatollah, king or other monarchial leader is above all political leaders in a given country. islam first all else follows.
The group teaches or implies that its supposedly exalted ends justify whatever means it deems necessary. This may result in members' participating in behaviors or activities they would have considered reprehensible or unethical before joining the group (for example, lying to family or friends, or collecting money for bogus charities).
Islam's middle name is lying and deceit. Any tactic, deemed to gain an advantage over a non-muslim group is not only sanctioned by the koran, it is encouraged.

The leadership induces feelings of shame and/or guilt in order to influence and/or control members. Often, this is done through peer pressure and subtle forms of persuasion.
There is nothing subtle about muslims. Rape, torture, selling female children to old men as wives, clitorectomies - all in the course of normal activity.
Subservience to the leader or group requires members to cut ties with family and friends, and radically alter the personal goals and activities they had before joining the group.
N/A.  Once a muslim, always a muslim. All in the family.  Deviate and it's honor killing time for you.
The group is preoccupied with bringing in new members.
But of course. Death to those who resist when they get to you.
The group is preoccupied with making money.
One of the ISIS group's first goals was to take control of the oil output to sell on the black market, likely to 'civilized' countries like France and various other affiliations via the UN.
Members are expected to devote inordinate amounts of time to the group and group-related activities.
Well Duh.
Members are encouraged or required to live and/or socialize only with other group members.
Well Duh.
The most loyal members (the “true believers”) feel there can be no life outside the context of the group. They believe there is no other way to be, and often fear reprisals to themselves or others if they leave (or even consider leaving) the group.
Well Duh.
