A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!

I have only one thing to say…
Associate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Now let’s hope and pray that he stays true to the COTUS.

I’ll add one thing: Hilary Clinton is still NOT POTUS.

Sunday greetin’s, GN!

Hiya, Paddy and Sven!

Mac --

Kinda cool about your forum buddy re the emergency text messaging which was tested last week.

I was amused by the faux outrage of so many lefties carping about Trump somehow violating their devices with an unwanted text message.

Many of them don’t have a clue how profoundly angry so many Americans were for eight years under Il Douchey but they still -- mostly -- remained civil. I think this shit with Kavanaugh has stripped much of that thin “civilized” veneer from a lot of folks…I’m certainly one of ’em.

I’m amused this morning by media and political pundits decrying the Republican “gloating” over this win. Yeah, cuz Obama never gloated -Nancy Pelosi never carried a 5 foot gavel, etc. There must be something in the water to push so many selective memories.

Hiya, Mac!

He went to a storage area and downchecked several tens of millions of dollars in product.

Good!

That was the last time that ever happened

Even better.

I remember some pretty intense production “issues” when I was at Alesis. (Gearing up to manufacture stuff containing new technologies has the occasional challenge.) 👿

Planning to watch the SpaceX launch online:

Lockheed had big problems with union employees, they could be about as negligent as they wanted and could not be fired.

Just one of the many wonderful things unions bring to life.

Also have the SpaceX feed playing and wish for a successful launch and recovery.

ADDENDUM: That music’s really dreadful.

Congratters to the SpaceX team!

Had the launch on my PC, then went out in the backyard to watch (with one eye on the screen). We didn’t see anything until first stage separation, then it was glorious!

The second stage and payload are in the upper left. The first stage is the bright circle towards the lower right.

Not great, but what do you expect from a cell phone?
