Here's video of NASA scientists splash-testing a new space capsule. Very cool.

Family by percentage

My family is definitely the 53%

I work hard, my wife works hard. We pay our Taxes!

I even tell the kids I'll pay a dollar for raking a bucket of leaves and then only pay them 50 cents and tell them the rest is going to their mom and dad's social security and Medicare.

But that damn cat, he's definitely one of the 99%.

He occupied our house and set up camp. He leaves clumps of his hippie hair everywhere and I suspect he's hitting the catnip if you know what I mean. He craps in the basement closets and misses the litter box ( typical male can't aim).

He whines (ok meows) when he doesn't get free food. Now that he's sick he wants universal vet care and subsidized meds.

Definitely one of the 99!

Mickey Kaus asks an excellent question:
Again, if you can’t cut back the government bureaucracy in good times (because there is enough tax money and we have "unmet needs," etc.) and you can’t cut it in bad times (because we have to preserve those jobs as "stimulus") when does the government stop growing? Has Obama even attempted to answer this concern?

Regarding the Occupy Wall Street mob, Daniel Foster writes:
They don’t pay for their meals and they don’t know where they come from. They don’t own Zuccotti park, don’t pay rent there, and act as if the request — from the the people that do own the park — that they clean up their mess is a totalitarian imposition. Finally, the bare minimum (a measly dozen, according to the story, among the scores) rouse themselves at the last possible minute to a half-assed cleanup job.

This all reminds me of nothing so much as myself, age 12, “occupying” my bedroom, which was and is privately owned by one Mrs. Foster.

Boy, the left sure is populated by hypocritical morons. First we have this story of a mob of "peace" protestors invading the Smithsonian's Air and Space museum:
The Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum was abruptly closed today when a mob of approximately 200 protesters armed with prohibited items including large signs and banners tried to push its way past security guards, according to the Washington Post.

The protesters reportedly pushed a guard up against a wall, prompting another guard to intervene with pepper spray. Response by D.C. police and Park Police resulted in one arrest.

One protester interviewed by the Washington Post said the mob included Occupy D.C. protesters, an offshoot the of Occupy Wall Street movement which, reportedly, opposes a myriad of perceived evils, including the U.S. military’s drones (there’s an exhibit of unmanned military aircraft at the museum).
Then, there's this story, covering the "Occupy D.C." juvenile delinquents:
Protestors at Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C., are promoting a wide range of causes, including saving the planet, even though their protest site is littered with trash and protest paraphernalia.

One sign, lying near a trashcan and a grassy area covered with sleeping bags, plastic bags, chairs, and other belongings, states, “We the People Say Planet Before Profits.”
These are the same idiots that are complaining because they can't find a job. What possible productive labor would somebody that chooses to spend their weekend so engaged possibly perform? And who would hire a peace activist that attacks museums or an environmentalist litterbug?
