The Election of Discontent

To the current crop of young people who are currently burning the American flag and showing their hatred for the democratic process and  to those of the eternally childish and petulent  narcissists of Hollywood and rock music who now seemingly despise  democracy and want power imposed by force  and   threaten in tantrums to leave the country for residence elsewhere I have this to say:

Good bye and don't let the door hit your backside on the way out.

"And God made the firmament and it separated between the water that was below the firmament and the water that was above the firmament, and it was so."

Auguste Piccard

Auguste Piccard, the namesake of Jean Luc Picard of Star Trek fame, flew into the stratosphere 10 miles high in 1931.
He described breaking through limits above earth and looking back to see earth.

"In the first half hour the balloon shot upward nine miles.
Through portholes, the observers saw the earth through a copper-colored, then bluish , haze. It seemed a flat disk with upturned edge. At the ten miles level the sky appeared a dark blue."
In 1960 his son  Jacques became the first man to descend to the deepest point of the oceans.
