Wildlife displaying disturbing trends

by Mac McMullen / September 10, 2008 4:26 AM PDT

Animals who formerly were self-sufficient are showing signs of developing the beliefs and customary habits of members of one of our Political Parties.

This is becoming more and more evident as they frequent developed residential neighborhoods. They have learned to just sit and wait for someone else to step in and provide for their care and sustenance.

Second, without checking the link, I'm guessing it's a bear story. They just recently moved one out of Rio Rancho, which is full of residential blocks, Intel Corp., strip malls, etc. It comes from their innate fearlessness, I believe; they're big and strong and they know it.

I've seen bears ride unicycles, walk tightropes and eat ice cream cones.

And you are assuming this one is alive.

The black bears in my state

..... learn too quickie. When visitors to the Great Smokies either think it;s cute to feed them, or don't dispose of their food scraps properly, it only takes a bear once to learn tat people food tastes mighty good and is much easier to come by than foraging for it in the wild.

Your NM fella looks like he is a patient one. Happy

Now that development has pushed their habitat into ever-growing smaller concentric circles, they have returned to their former stompin' grounds in my county.

........"handed out" in our Welfare State to buy votes. Without first determining anything resembling a "means", or as a "hand up" as an interim assist.

Dispensed at the cash register by a woman wearing a head covering, before going to the parking lot and opening the trunk of a new high
cost luxury car.

Wonder when someone will register that bear to vote ?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
