Mammal Monday: Whistlepig

I’d just passed two woodchuck-sized holes under a tree when the lumbering run of a groundhog-in-the-fur caught my eye. The animal stood up for the best view in front of its burrow. Marmota monax, mammal of many names. Slightly easier to see if you click on this image to make it larger.

The children’s gulag is concentrating.

The lying jurist (I’m pretty sure the FBI thing is just a cover for Flake, Collins, and Murkowski: they’ll ultimately vote yes ~ the whole party is Trump’s now.)

    I always loved seeing the woodchucks in Greenwood. They like a nice quiet neighborhood!
    On your second point, women will take to the streets. We are fed up with this and years of mistreatment are coming to a crisis point.

    Will the groundhog be allowed to remain?

    Anyone who thinks that judges are beyond reproach should remember, judges were once lawyers, folks who obfuscate,distort, conceal, (essentially lie) for a living .Also, they are “social climbers”. It would seem that they are more likely than most to amplify their positives and hide their flaws, no?

      The Supreme Court was also a very reactionary institution for most of its history. The “Warren Court” was an anomaly.

        True. We have also had no less than three members of the KKK and a murderer. So much for justice.
