Election System Vulnerabilities: This graphic should alarm you

The graphic in the Featured Image of this post details all the election vulnerabilities in the state in which I live, Washington.  We have had all-mail voting since 2011, and only once since then has a Republican won statewide office (yeah, and she left for a job in the Biden administration!), and at least one …

Today’s Electric Car Story

It's priceless!  The story on Fox News about a Canadian man who bought his Tesla in 2013, and needs to replace its battery (equivalent to the engine in a gas-powered car).  It is well-known that lithium-ion batteries eventually lose the ability to maintain a charge, and must be replaced.  What is not so well-known, and …

Covid and Covid vaccine news you have perhaps not seen

We are probably all aware that, since early 2020, the Federal government, the mainstream media, and all the Big Tech companies have been censoring all news stories, news outlets, and medical professionals whose information does not concur with whatever is the latest government "guidance".  The Public has been denied news of the results of medical …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #215: Planes, Trains, Automobiles and ?

Ooh, this is going to be fun!  I have been a transportation buff since the mid-1980s, when I spent a year as an apprentice to a transportation consultant.  Whenever I see a train, I try to watch it until it is out of sight.  Living in the Pacific Northwest surrounded by bodies of water, we …

Quote of the day: Dangerous Water

Water is everywhere.  If you turn the tap in your kitchen or bathroom, what flows out of the faucet is drinkable water (at least in most places).  City water all over America is normally inexpensive and available for people and animals to drink.  Depending on where you are, the tap water may be "hard" or …

RushBabe49 can now be found on some Social Media

I have stated before, many times, that I stay off the "legacy" social media, like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.  All of those sites are run by the most evil Leftists, and actively censor viewpoints they deem "misinformation" or "hate speech", both of which concepts are very misleading. However, in the past couple of years, …

53 years ago today, America landed a man on the Moon

On July 20, 1969, American astronaut Neil Armstrong was the first human being to set foot on our huge satellite, the Moon.  It was perhaps the most momentous achievement of Humanity, and to this day it has never been duplicated.  I think that every American should give a rousing cheer for America, and its space …

The multi-billion-dollar Webb Space Telescope, showing us our Universe

Much has been made, in the press, about the huge cost overruns on the Webb Space Telescope project. It's time now to ignore all the cost overruns, and see the result of decades of scientific work by NASA and its private-sector partners.  Today, the first images taken by the Webb telescope in its orbit around …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #201: Three of a Kind

In our yard, we have some Japanese Maple trees.  The one that came first, when I bought my house in June of 2000, started out small.  When we got married and my husband moved in with me in 2003, he dubbed it "Fluffy".  Here is Fluffy in three seasons. In Spring and Summer, its leaves …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #199: Mechanical, Industrial

Working in a factory gives me access to industrial and mechanical items all day long, and ever since I started there in July of 2021, I have marveled at the beauty of the items manufactured, and even the scrap material.  Every so often, I need to stop by the tool room to pick up some …
