So a woman posted a really cool video of a fox on her front walkway. A few seconds in, you see three nursing pups come out from under her and start play fighting. Super cute and really cool that she caught it.

Response:"I hope they stay safe forever."
Original Poster: "sorry, something ate one of the babies and left the head and backbone on the porch."
Response: "Not sure I needed to know that.
OP: "Like my husband said as he cleaned it up, it's the circle of life. Foxes are carnivores, so I will spare you the gruesome details of the other carcasses we are forced to deal with daily."

Just imagine he would still be alive if he didn’t use counterfeit money! Hmmmmm 🤭 I definitely think the cops were 100% wrong though

At what point does it become fine with instead of debating these people we just tell them to fuck themselves? Because I've moved past that point several years ago.

What do any of those four people have to do with Donald Trump?

Or

... walk into a bar. And they all say "Damn, I hate Donald Trump."
And his one problem is he didn’t go to Russia that night because he had extracurricular activities, and they froze to death.

I always wondered what they would all do when Soros dies and they couldn't go "SORRRROOOOOSSSSSS!!!!" for every one of life's problems but nice to see Bill Gates is being groomed for that role.

Although the Jewish element of the theories will have to be filled somehow.

Soros ticks the Jew box AND the Nazi box! How did Soros become the boogie man? It's like they make up stories to equal what the Koch Brothers actually do.

He dares to fund human rights organizations - and I think the rise or Orban in Hungary (Soros is Hungarian) led to his demonization. He's an enemy of that fascist regime (no surprise considering he survived the Holocaust) and therefore makes an easy target as a rich Jew who stands against the eastern Europe default of xenophobia.

And never forget this... Giuliani claims he's 'more of a Jew' than Holocaust survivor George Soros

She used to be a teacher...in Utah, but I would guess that she's been retired for at least 20 years now. My uncle passed away last year, and they've been living in some podunk little town in Southern Utah for a long time. They used to live in Ogden, but after her son, my cousin Wayne, got busted running a real estate ponzi scheme, they had to leave town.

Speaking of contradictory freedom morons, I know this is a bot so I'm not responding to it but it still made me facepalm because of course a ton of real people agree with this thought. You want to add an Amendment forcing state governments to follow ALL Federal laws to a document that already contains an Amendment explicitly providing "state's rights". These fuckin' people, man.

They believe their Conservative principles so strongly, they are willing to throw them all away because it makes their man-baby President look bad at the hands of a Dem mayor. If people in Portland and Oregon don't like the Mayor and Governor's enforcement, they can vote them out. Unbelievable.

No way in hell I'm going to show you what I just saw...

Woman from one of the dog groups I'm in (dedicated to "Potcakes" - rescue mutts from the Caribbean like my Izzy) woman posted this:
Indy had a haircut today so now you can really see how big the tumor is 😩 I honestly don't know how he can still use the bathroom. Vets gave him a few weeks to live and it's been over a year now - miracle boy
With 4 photos of her old dog and the MASSIVE tumour it has on its ass.

Like - extreme closeup in one shot.

I love dogs, so I understand the urge to keep your pup alive for as long as possible... but holy fuck...

And thanks for sharing Candice.

I've noticed that a lot of local news reporters/anchors do this on tweets. and they also like to repeat the information verbatim in a quote tweet vs. a simple retweet. both drive me insane.
