The End.

What could go wrong?

Didn't Obama take all their guns in 2009?

I'm confused. How is the NRA still meeting?
Didn't Obama take all their guns in 2009? And again in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015?


Trump has a concealed permit for a Derringer, right? His tiny hands couldn't grip a regular-sized gun.

Vicente Fox: "Fox News Is Trying To Make A President" Of Trump

Trump "Controls Media Here, You Know. You Know, Fox News Is 24 Hours, Giving Him The Push"

VICENTE FOX: Because [Donald Trump] controls media here, you know. You know, Fox News is 24 hours, giving him the push. In Mexico, we used to say Televisa, the number one station, makes presidents. In this case, Fox News is trying to make a president. That's not the way to go. We should be speaking about the challenges we have. We should have in democracy very happy campaigns. There should be music. There should be reasonable messages. Democracy is a feast, and here, it seems to be war. A call for war. Democracy is not that. Freedom is not that. The leadership of this nation is at risk in front of the whole of the world. I work with all the former presidents, former prime ministers, and we're all astonished. We say it is a nightmare. This cannot be the voice of that great nation. The nation that has led the world. The nation that works intensely for peace, and now he's blaming the government, past government, former government that they did not work for peace enough. Yeah, we have problems. We have ISIS, and this, but we must unite together to get rid of them. This is not the way to go


It's all love....


Otter Family Can't Wait To See Baby They Thought Had Drowned

Once veterinarians believed Toby was strong enough to return to the wild, he was taken to a beach area where members of OtterWatch, along with WRS and theNational Parks (NParks), determined Toby had a better chance of linking back up with his family.

At first, the otter pup was kept in a carrier — but when Toby didn't leave the carrier or cry, he was taken out of the carrier and left alone on the sand. It was only then that Toby began to cry loudly.

Then, in a glorious display of solidarity, his entire family came running for him.

"The rescue and reintroduction of Toby has demonstrated an unprecedented collaboration and 'make-it-happen' spirit between members of the public and across multiple agencies," Jeffery Teo, a member of OtterWatch, told the Straits Times.

"Everyone puts in their best, not for pride nor glory. We just want to bring Toby home. This is humanity at its best form."


a LITTLE bit of a disconnect?


Trump is a declared enemy of the liberal constitutional order of the United States

Adam Gopnik: “One can argue about whether to call him a fascist or an authoritarian populist or a grotesque joke made in a nightmare shared between Philip K. Dick and Tom Wolfe, but under any label Trump is a declared enemy of the liberal constitutional order of the United States—the order that has made it, in fact, the great and plural country that it already is. He announces his enmity to America by word and action every day. It is articulated in his insistence on the rightness of torture and the acceptable murder of noncombatants. It is self-evident in the threats he makes daily to destroy his political enemies, made only worse by the frivolity and transience of the tone of those threats. He makes his enmity to American values clear when he suggests that the Presidency holds absolute power, through which he will be able to end opposition—whether by questioning the ownership of newspapers or talking about changing libel laws or threatening to take away F.C.C. licenses.”

“To say ‘Well, he would not really have the power to accomplish that’ is to misunderstand the nature of thin-skinned authoritarians in power. They do not arrive in office and discover, as constitutionalists do, that their capabilities are more limited than they imagined. They arrive, and then make their power as large as they can.”
