“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Heads up nerds!

Heads up nerds! Saturday night will be prime viewing for the first of three "Super moons" of this year. 

Because of the moon's elliptical orbit around Earth, sometimes it is 50,000 kilometers closer(perigee) to us than at it's farthest point(apogee). When the perigee point is coincident with a full moon(two unrelated phenomena), we get treated to a nice large super moon. Take a minute or two from the idiot box this weekend and go out and enjoy it.

I suppose one could watch using the idiot box but what's the point?
