One Less Consonant to Pronounce. America Wins Again!

[Why Do Some English Speaking Countries Pronounce Z as “Zed” and Others as “Zee”?] (Viewer #172,063)

Short answer, Zed is short for the Greek letter “zeta”

So why don’t the British say more of the letters like abbreviated Greeks? Alph, Bet, Delt, Eps… and so forth?

I don’t know whole Greek alphabet, so I can’t finish that example.

But I do like gyros.

Even if I don’t know how to pronounce them.

So… Not Support and Defend the Constitution?

During a speech on the House floor, Democrat Maxine Waters said “my mission and my goal is to make sure that Trump does not remain president of the United States of America.”

Cartoon of the Day – Economy


[A.F. Branco]

I didn’t vote for Trump — I voted Libertarian as the least of all evils on the ballot — but I have been happy with how things have been going, including the economy. At least, it’s better than it was under Obama and better than it would have been under (shudder) Hillary.

The Power Grid Made Comprehensible

[What’s The Biggest Machine In The World?] (Viewer #343,956)

It’s actually only 8 minutes, and it’s paced pretty well.

On the Right Track

When registered voters were asked whom they view as the leader of the Democratic Party, 40% said it has no leader.

Good. Now we just need to make it so that it has no followers, either.
