The spacecraft after it does the Pluto flyby will head farther into the Kuiper Belt to examine one or two of the ancient, icy mini-worlds in that vast region, at least a billion miles beyond Neptune’s orbit.
It is already paying dividends by revealing that Pluto has four other moons besides its largest one Charon named Nix, Hydra, Styx and Kerberos
Next Tuesday the New Horizons space probe will make its closest approach to Pluto by flying within 7800 miles of the planet's surface. As it does so, the United States will become the first spacefaring nation to have sent probes to all the known worlds in our solar system.
Meanwhile back on Planet Earth, it's Friday, and y'all know what that means. It's time to select the fool, fools or group of fools that continue to push the boundaries of ignorance, go to new horizons of arrogance, and boldly go where no azzhole has gone before.
It's time for this week's edition of the TransGriot Shut Up Fool Awards.
Honorable mention number one goes to all 16 GOP presidential candidates for suddenly having a 'scheduling conflict' that will prevent them from attending the upcoming National Council of La Raza Convention in Kansas City.
Way to compete for that Latino vote.
Honorable mention number two goes to Mike Huckabee, who continues to talk out of both sides of his disingenuous mouth by claiming on one hand Palestinians don't exist, and then called for them to be relocated.
I have a few Palestinian friends who would love to have a few words with you about that subject.
Make up your mind Mikey. Either they exist or they don't If they don't exist, how can the ' non existent Palestinians' be relocated?
Honorable mention number three goes to Candace Cameron Bure, who is revealing herself to be as bad as her right wing fundie brother Kirk for still trying and failing miserably on The View to justify anti-gay discrimination in the wake of the Oregon homophobic cake bakers having to pay a $135K.legal settlement to the lesbian couple they discriminated against.
Raven-Symone of all people called her azz out on it.
Honorable mention number three goes to Si Robertson, who points to calendars of all things as his 'proof' that atheists don't exist.
Y'all just keep proving to me every day that conservatism is a hotbed of stupidity and ignorance.
Honorable mention number four is Paula Deen, who obviously didn't learn a thing from the last kerfluffle she stirred up and posted a picture of her son dressed in brownface.
Yeah, you have some 'splaining to do to the Latino community about that and your Southern fried bigotry.
Honorable mention number five is Rick Wiles, who renounced his American citizenship because of the SCOTUS marriage equality ruling. So Rick, when do you leave my country?
And when you do, make sure you take the rest of your right wing fools with you.
Honorable mention number six is Stacey Dash, who had the wash set and GOP cranial rinse and is trying hard to fit in as a FOX Fembot. In her latest appearance of the GOP Propaganda Network, she opened her mouth to say that she wants Donald Trump running our country.
That's it. You have confirmed to the entire world that you are a beautiful fool.
Honorable mention number seven is the conservafool majority on the Texas State Board of
Hey, you proud Americans did all that crap, so practice what you screech at other and own your crap.
Honorable mention number eight is a group award for all the Ugly American fools who sent racist tweets in the wake of Team USA's 5-2 victory in the FIFA Women's World Cup final over defending champion Japan.
See, you people are why we can't have nice international reps.
This week's fool is Donald
on African-American kids in addition to the continued insults he's lobbed at the Latino community., but incredulously thinks he's going to win the Latino vote.
Yeah right, the sellout Latino vote. But keep sellin' those presidential woof tickets and race baiting until at least until the first GOP debate on August 6. You're doing the country a huge service by exposing the racist underbelly of the Republican Party o moderate voters and motivating non-white voters to show up and show out at the polls on November 8, 2016
Donald Trump, shut up fool!
