An unnamed bidder paid $28million at auction Saturday for a seat onboard the first crewed spaceflight by Jeff Bezos' company Blue Origin, as one of four passengers including the Amazon founder himself.The winner, whose identity will be disclosed in the coming weeks, beat 20 other participants in an auction launched in late May that wrapped up with a 10-minute online bidding frenzy, livecast by Blue Origin. The July 20 launch - which coincides with the anniversary of the moon landing - will be the first test of Blue Origin's New Shepard rocket with people on board, kicking off the company's space tourism business.

A note to the successful bidder - suicide together with a $10,000 casket and burial would be a lot cheaper, bro.

I'm happy for them. At least the money isn't just sitting in some Wall Street firm, it's providing jobs,in the US. Besides we will be able to use these kinds of things as examples when we compare the gluttony of the old Robber Barons and their private railroad cars.

Joe Biden’s disastrous G7 performance has been well documented here at RedState. From his getting played by Vladimir Putin to his partisan rantings against Republicans to his train wreck of a press conference (before his other train wreck of a press conference), it’s been an eventful week.Unfortunately, it’s not over yet, and more evidence is emerging that the current President of the United States is simply not well.Let’s take a look at the timeline. Yesterday, he was 2.5 hours late for a NATO press conference, offering no explanation for his extreme tardiness.

American media is so infected with leftism that it’s ideologically slanted to the point of tipping over and it’s highly possible that the media doesn’t even know it. It doesn’t have the ability to look at itself critically, and we get very real moments where the media asks Democrats what it can do to better help them along while on air. The media in other countries can see it, though, and Australia’s, in particular, can’t help but dedicate a segment to it.

As the pandemic wore into the spring selling season, many troops nixed their traditional cookie booths for safety reasons. "This is unfortunate, but given this is a girl-driven program and the majority of cookies are sold in-person, it was to be expected," said Kelly Parisi, a spokeswoman for Girl Scouts of the USA.
