I work in the Operations department at our local zoo. one of our chimps did this to a large 1″ thick pane of glass a couple of weeks ago. He did it from 50′ away with a rock the size of a baseball. My first thought was “sign him up for the major leagues!”
How would YOU like to be in a cage with hundreds of people watching every move you make??????
It reminds me of an old Twilight Zone episode where humans were in a house and the beings on that planet could watch them, like in a zoo.
Animals are not supposed to locked up like that. It is NOT their natural habitat, no matter how much the humans try to make it so. IT IS NOT NATURAL.
This bear wants to be free.

Funny, I don’t remember giving up my first amendment rights when I raised my hand in November of 1985. Only 13 months until I say goodbye to this “new” Army. Parts of it I will miss, but I will not miss what it is becoming.

Reminds me of years ago when I was having the “birds and the bees” talk with my then 10 year old. We were out in my shop and he had asked some pertinent questions on the topic. After a brief explanation of anatomy and fertilization, I said, “So, do you know how the semen and the eggs get together?” I picked up the opposite ends of an extension cord and held them in front of him. I said, “This end is called the male end, and this end is called the female end.” Then I pushed to two ends together. The light dawned on his face and he said, “That’s gross”

Apparently some people think so. Look at all the gun manufacturers and sellers who have been sued for being complicit in a gun crime.

I think that the point of the article was not so much about the woman, who has clearly demonstrated that she is a whack job, it’s about the response of the liberal mindset to her assertions and claims. Buying into the joke of being “transracial” is such typically liberal/PC nonsense.

In order for anything to be “illegal”, there has to be a law in place addressing the practice. Whether they were an ancient people crossing the land bridge between Siberia and Alaska, or Europeans crossing the Atlantic on sailing vessels, there were no “illegal immigrants” until there was a law against such. They were all just immigrants.

As in a secular setting, “ignorance of the law is no excuse” Google “natural revelation”

Not agreeing or disagreeing on your opinion of Franklin Graham, but in any case, it doesn’t make what he said less true.

It boils down to this, the third part of the Abrahamic covenant: Genesis …”12:2 And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing; 3 And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.” How many nations and people over the past 3000 years have tried to exterminate the Jews? *Lots* How many of these nations still exist? Not too many. Jews? Yup, still thriving in their mean old Zionist state.
I think it's pretty neat how everything starts with Abraham and branches off from there. And yes, despite strenuous efforts to eradicate the Jews as a people over the millenia, they are still going strong.

Anybody know what the march is that was used for background music?
Sounded like John Philip Sousa, but I can't identify the work. It might be here, http://www.dws.org/sousa/works, but I don't have the time to listen to all of them, taking the missus to the airport shortly.

Grand Rapids Craigslist…just checked it. Rooms for rent range from $250 to $400. Lots of them in the $300 range so CrabeaterSeal is pretty accurate.
@Boom: Your argument is called Pasquel's Wager. It fails on every front. Your argument is based on the assumption that you're praying to the right God. (You don't lose sleep at night wondering if the Hindus may have it right, do you?) It also makes the laughable assumption that God will reward those who believe just to hedge their bets, and not out of genuine faith, while at the same time God punishes those who really follow through with their conviction.
Why not believe in Mohammed and Allah... You know... Just in case?

It’s called using Chrome as your browser. Go to “Customize and Control Google Chrome” (the little three bar icon in the upper right hand corner, go to “more tools”, then “extensions” and select “AdBlock” presto, no more ads. If one sneaks through you right click on the ad and tell AdBlock how to handle it. I have seen an ad on The Blaze in a couple of years.
Easy peasy if you’re using Chrome: Customize and Control Google Chrome (three bar icon in upper right) then settings/show advanced settings/Privacy-Content Settings/plugins-click to play. No more autoplay videos, you have to click on them to play them.

I’ve been employed at an AZA (Association of Zoos and Aquariums) certified Zoo for just over three years now. In every exhibit where there are dangerous animals and virtually all of the other exhibits, we have an animal barricade and a people barricade with a buffer zone between the two. I’ve toured the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo which is also AZA certified. I don’t specifically recall this exhibit, but I’m having trouble believing that they are setup in such a way as to allow this to happen without the mother doing something monumentally stupid like stepping under the people barricade in order to get closer to the “pretty kitties”.

I’m ashamed to say it, but my first reaction to this idiotic statement was to say something nasty and racist in return…but I decided not to stoop to your level. You pretty much have a monopoly on nasty and racist. Congratulations.

And what the heck does this have to do with the article? Can you say “off-topic”?
