This radiograph shows a Timber Rattlesnake that ate a radio-collared Bobwhite Quail. The radiograph was taken locally at the Hammond Hills Animal Hospital in North Augusta. The radio-collared quail was part of a study being done at the University of Georgia Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources. The graduate student’s project focuses on movement and space use of Timber Rattlesnakes, Black Rat snakes, and Northern Bobwhite Quail. While checking radio-collars on their quail, they realized one was giving off a mortality signal. When technicians arrived to the location of the collar they found the rattlesnake instead of a quail.… Read more »

Clever. Let the quail tag the snake.

Even snakes can’t get any privacy these days!

Yeah, but according to him he’s doing it to himself. “There has never been, ever before, an administration that’s been so open and transparent.” — Donald J. Trump

Sarah Sanders will be leaving the Trump administration. “She’s tough,” Trump said at an event at the White House. “But she’s good.” [snark] “She’s almost as good a liar as me. One of the best suck ups ever. It’ll be hard to find someone as good to replace her.” At least it’s not the double whammy of having to replace Kelleyanne Conway too. Republican Henry Kerner, Trump’s appointee as Special Counsel to the US Office of Special Counsel, recommended Trump fire Conway for Hatch Act violations. https://www.upi.com/Top_News/US/2019/06/13/Special-counsel-Kellyanne-Conway-violated-Hatch-Act-should-be-removed/5491560442384/ That’s DOA. It’s not legally required, and for Republicans that means taking no… Read more »

Sean Hannity “jokingly” lobbied for the job.

How upset will the opposition be when Sanders returns to Arkansas and wins the governorship?

Why are you so obsessed with how the opposition feels? How about-Would she do a good job? Would she serve the people? Would she tell the truth once in a while?

You seem to be another one whose only purpose here is to pwn the libs.

I won’t be upset, Arkansas needs someone that can provide forward vision while also offering another vision slightly to the right.

Low blows aside, I really won’t care for who the land of finishing dead last in the SEC West elects to serve as their governor because it will have absolutely zero impact on my life.

More concerning to me will be places like CNN or Harvard or other places giving her a platform for rehabilitating her image.

The state of Georgia is planning to execute Marion Wilson Jr. for the murder of Donovan Corey Parks.

Oh cool, a Colorado City council race, totally relevant to our lives here in Georgia.

How much time have you taken off your life stressing out over things that have literally no impact on you?

We thought the same thing about Bernie Sanders years ago. A radical socialist that even honeymooned in the Soviet Union. He was viewed as a total wacko for 40 years! Now he is the most sane of the radicals on the Socialist ticket. The article points out how this Communist is so similar to AOC! I think the Communist here is not as radical. Is this gal running round telling us we are all doomed in 12 years? ….yet millions folks are stupid and brainwashed enough to believe it. No this wacko fits in beautifully with today’s Democratic Party .… Read more »

Fascism would seem to be a much more imminent threat.

Agree. Confiscating guns, control of the media and banning or thwarting free speech are steps in the right direction. Accusing folks that you disagree with as racists, subhuman or worse are other examples too.

Yep. Definitely auditioning for FauxNews.

Why are the socialists and communists always democrats and not conservatives?

Grindelwald

I don’t know, man. Why are the white supremacists and domestic terrorists that shoot up black churches, synagogues, and mosques always Trump supporters?

It might be because they are not. What party was for slavery, the Klan, against integration and against women voting? Which one gins up racial hatred every election to get the vote out? That is almost batting 1000 isn’t it?

Grindelwald

Ok, bud.

By the way, I didn’t mention it earlier because I thought it rather obvious, but socialists and communists are – by definition – not Democrats. What with socialists and communists having their own political parties and everything.

bustercrabbe

You are probably right but it is almost impossible to tell the difference these days. Well the communist party USA endorses the democratic platform wholeheartedly. You can go to http://Www.CPUSA.org if you like.

DTM- It’s only difficult to tell the difference if you need a new pair of reading glasses.
Also, if Vladimir Putin wholeheartedly endorses Trump, does that mean Trump is a communist?
No need to answer- it was rhetorical. And your rhetoric hasn’t changed. Nor has your view from the fishbowl.

Grindelwald

Wait, he’s trying to convince me that Communists are Democrats by providing a link to the Communist Party website? What a weird logic pretzel that is.

It makes sense if the neurons in your brain are all twisted up.

Different name, same Democrats = socialists = communists motif. Can we assume DTM’s grandkid showed him how to mask his IP?

Four years ago Trump made his infamous escalator ride at Trump Towers. Time flies. I just heard on the radio that 150k have requested tickets for his re-election kick off.

Wow. And I think that is conservative. I heard there were 14 million requests.
