Its been a while since I've done a National Park.

White Sands National Park is one of the newest.

Rising from the heart of the Tularosa Basin is one of the world's great natural wonders - the glistening white sands of New Mexico. Great wave-like dunes of gypsum sand have engulfed 275 square miles of desert, creating the world's largest gypsum dunefield. White Sands National Park preserves a major portion of this unique dunefield, along with the plants and animals that live here.

Author: BobR    Date: 2022-05-04 12:00:00

Yesterday, the country awoke to some shocking news: the SCOTUS - stacked with TFG picks - will be turning the clock back 50 years on women. The right to privacy, the right for women to control their own bodies, the right for a woman and doctor to determine what medical procedure(s) to perform are all going into the trash bin.

According to a leaked draft decision, they court majority has decided that Row v Wade is to be overturned, with the right to have an abortion returned to the states. Nearly half of the states in this country will have legislation ready to ban abortion as soon as the decision drops (which will be in a month or two).

Dolly Madison?
Author: BobR    Date: 04/27/2022 12:01:47

He's handsome, he's buff (from the waist up, at least), and he's an "un-bought" republican. He's also a first term U.S. House rep from North Carolina. I am referring, of course, to Madison Cawthorn. He seems like an obvious choice for the purple state of NC, representing some of the red that makes up that purple.

He's a bit of a hot mess though, as recent stories show someone with a certain lack of judgement.
