Happy Hump Day!

These two Wyoming fellows have earned their Man Cards for life.

Kendell Cummings and Brady Lowry were attacked by a grizzly Oct. 15 while hiking in the Shoshone National Forest outside Cody. Cummings was able to rip the bear off Lowry, who was attacked first, leading to a head-to-head showdown with the carnivorous beast himself.

For his heroics, Cummings took the brunt of the bruin’s assault.

Read the whole thing.  All I can add is that wow, these two young men have some balls.  We could use a lot more like them.

Now then:

On To the Links!

I like this guy!  Also, Cori Bush is a classless, racist bitch.

We are now suffering under an administration marked by incompetence.

This is actually racist.

John Bolton and his forever-war boner are running for President?

Because he’s full of Schiff.

The authorities are going after Jordan Peterson for wrongthink.

I love a happy ending.

Guys – have you been enjoying these Hump Day posts?  Apparently that’s racist now.  What the hell ain’t?

Look up “abuse of power” and this story should be the first link.

Murder City, USA.

Woof woof!

About damn time.

This should come as a surprise to no one.

Note:  Kevin McCarthy has his faults, but he’s no Nancy Pelosi – by which I mean, he isn’t a demented, drunken, power-crazed lunatic.

Biden(‘s handlers) Administration ponders banning gas stoves.  Fuck off, slavers!

I love a happy ending Part Deux.

This Week’s Cultural Edification:

I’ve long been a fan of the Grateful Dead.  Lots of folks can take them or leave them, but they had a great American story, being literally a garage band that made it big.  And they were all about the tour, the shows and the fans, preferring to be out playing rather than in studio, and their dedicated fan base responded to that.  Mrs. Animal and I actually saw them perform in Denver in 1991, and it was a fantastic show, lasting well over four hours.  Having Carlos Santana as the opening act didn’t hurt.

One of my favorite Dead albums is the 1990 concert compilation album Without a Net, and the last piece on that two-CD set was the sixteen-minute concert staple Eyes of the World.  Listen to Jerry Garcia’s guitar work on this piece; it brings to mind an image of a clear mountain stream running over pebbles.  Just listening to it relaxes me.   Here it is, then; enjoy.
