So is the entire Milky Way Galaxy just a super massive accretion disk for the a super super massive black hole?
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

The way it's looking that's the general description of just about every galaxy.

Except most of the galaxy isn't spiraling inward

Nope, no indication that it has to be, either. There's balance at work, just as there is with the planets orbiting the sun.

If it were proven that our galaxy would eventually spiral into the central black hole some billions of years from now, Al Gore would likely blame it on climate change.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

And the media would say it's Trump's doing.
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

And then try to find a way to tax to working people in order to further line his pockets.
