I finished an all day drive across Arizona on US160, the down through Flagstaff and Oak Creek Canyon and points south. By myself, so lots of time to think, while taking in the landscape passing by. Oak Creek Canyon is at the edge of the Colorado Plateau, long long ago, island arcs wedged up against the Colorado Plateau, they became the islands in the sky, and all sort of ridges and mountains and valleys. See, besides the original jamming into the continent, subsequent massive forces alternately compressed and pulled apart this land mass, surface adding all sort of more complexities and todays Valley of the Sun. Fun drive. Oh yeah, what’s so cool is that there’s a huge elevation shift, you’re on the Colorado Plateau then you’re dropping down the Mogollon Rim. You can almost image the ocean that lapped up at that one time continental drop off.

I stumbled on a really slick YouTube news production and after about ten minutes into it, I need to stop to check out the guy. (Crossroads with JOSHUA PHILIPP - YouTube) There was something too slick about it. Made me curious who put that together. Oh Lordie, he’s one of them, the brainwashers, the stupefaction masters. I’m hanging it out over here hoping others might know more about this outfit and particular the onslaught of bandwidth they are achieving.
This is what happen while liberals slept these past two three decades.
