Watering Hole: Tuesday, November 27, 2012 – She Lives Here…

…and so does her sister.  This young doe and her sister are always hanging out on the property.  I haven’t seen the mother around for awhile so mom may be a goner.  My guess is that these two young does were born on the property because they seem right at home here.  I can slam the cars doors, open the windows, shout at them and all I get is big ears pointed in my direction.

This was as close as I could get with my phone camera because I didn’t want to spook her.  I had just gotten out of the car when I saw her standing there.  She didn’t budge and she let me take her picture.

I was able to get this photo of the sisters the next day.

Hurry up and take that picture.

  1. I hear Republicans voice concern about leaving a national debt to our children. What I don’t hear is concern from Republicans about leaving a healthy environment for our children. Without clean air, clean water, and safe food, the debt becomes meaningless.

  2. Republicans were not concerned about leaving a national debt to our children until the black guy got into the Whitehouse. When Republicans are in power, it’s “borrow like there’s no tomorrow” but when Democrats are in charge, it’s “pay as you go.”

    Caring for the environment cuts into the profits of the industries that pollute, therefore those costs must be borne by someone else – i.e. the taxpayer.

    Thanks for the photos, Cats.

    • They are cute until you see the damage that they do to vegetable gardens and vineyards. With all the other greenery around to eat, they choose to eat my hydrangeas. They come right up to my bedroom window at night. If we had a dog, this wouldn’t happen.

      • growing up, there was a large Corps of Engineer’s lake and federal grounds that didn’t allow hunting, and right on cue when hunting season started, the deer would all migrate to that Corps ground surrounding the lake. they knew there was safety, food and water. you could drive through the grounds and sometimes have to honk to get the little ones to move out of the way. pretty cool and a lot of good photo ops..

        • I had a friend who owned a home in a wooded area. one year during hunting season, a buck ran onto his property and jumped through his picture window. it was a bloody mess as he overturned furniture, slammed into walls, breaking lamps etc until he jumped back out through the window.

          not a pretty sight…

          • Very dangerous situation. I had a grade school teacher who had a deer jump into her windshield — by accident, of course, the deer had jumped just as she rounded a corner, and BLAM!

            She was so seriously injured that she was evacuated back to the states, and we kids never found out how it turned out.

  3. I posted this link last night but it was rather late. So? Bill0 says “Americans” are depressed because “traditional America seems to be disappearing”. Funny. It sounds like Bill0 the Bigot is the most depressed of them all. But here’s the best part.

    One of the comments inspired me to do a little research about Bill0 and found out that he is a “Master of Public Administration”. That’s the fancy way of saying that he was educated to be a (gasp!) community organizer. I can’t help but wonder how much of his bitterness is due to the fact that, when he tried to find gainful employment in his chosen field, he was told; “no thank you, there’s not much call for fascist community organizers in America”.


    • Some americans have been depressed about traditional America disappearing since forever. Black folks in charge and gay couples marrying just gave them something to point at as an immediate cause. I firmly believe that even if nothing ever changed, those americans would be depressed anyway. I don’t think they know how to be happy.

      • No one could be more depressed than Native Americans at what has been done to this continent in the four hundred years of European occupation.

  4. Funny. The folks at FAUX”News” still haven’t managed to put up the clip of Tom Ricks getting booted off the set. One would think that they would want to defend themselves from all of us “libruls” laughing at them but I guess we can conclude that they have no defense so they just want it to go away before their worshipers catch wind of it. A few facts have come out from Ricks though.

    1. He was scheduled for an entire 5-6 minute segment.
    2. He was cut off after about 1.5 minutes after he said that FAUX”News” was spreading propaganda for the GOP.
    3. He was told by a staffer that he had been cut off because he had been “rude”.

    • They really are pathological about their lying to the point where they actually get offended if you point out that they are lying. I don’t mean you put out facts that prove what they said wasn’t true, I mean they lie, they know they lie, but when you publicly say they’re lying, they get offended that you tell their viewers they’re lying. And they won’t admit that they’re lying, they just get all offended as if you were besmirching their reputation with their viewers.

      Also, they seem to be unable to connect their constant lying with the effect their constant lying has on the country’s well-being.

      • Indeed. I recall a thought from an old book, though I can’t recall the author or title, that stuck with me. To paraphrase:

        “Only liars are offended when they are called liars because those who are not liars know that it’s pointless to be angry when someone lies about them.”

      • This is a very slippery snow. The roads are dangerous as the state hasn’t prepped the surfaces to handle the freezing slush. I was on my way to see a friend and I turned around and came home because there was a major accident on the road. I called my friend and rescheduled our get together.

    • A friend of mine was in her house when a tornado hit it. It destroyed her brick house. She was okay but her dog was missing. She later found her dog, unharmed, about two blocks from her house.

  5. Poor ol’ McCain is disturbed by meeting with Susan Rice. He is quoted in the Post as saying that he was “significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn’t get concerning evidence that was overwhelming leading up to the attack on our consulate that we tried to get.”
    So, he’s disturbed, or something.

    • Susan Rice is too much of a diplomat to tell McCain to his face to go fuck himself with his sharp, pointy lies. He is defaming her character, and I hope that in private, she tells him where to shove it. He is just making shit up about her and claiming it’s enough of a character flaw to disqualify her from a position she is clearly more qualified to have than McCain is to have his.

    • McCain et al are trying to destroy Susan Rice as revenge for Obama winning re-election. We thought the last four years were bad, but I think we’ll see something worse in the next four years.

    • He’s disturbed because his story is unravelling and his relevance and credibility with it?

    • Payne’s callousness really is disturbing. How the hell can his thought process skip over empathy for the families and to go on about ‘how lucky’ the murdered (yes they were murdered by the slave overlords) were to have jobs.
      Oh, I’d like to meet the man in a dark alley, net him, whisk away to Bangladesh slave labor camp and put his ass to work for pennies a day…
      damn I despise that useless Payne.

    • How about we thank the Unions for demanding safer working conditions in the nation. Instead, “Fat Cunt” Payne blames the Unions for unsafe working conditions in other nations. We can have an impact by purchasing more clothes made in US. The clothes may cost more but do we really need a new wardrobe every year?

  6. Wow, Lyndon Lerouchies out in force today – picture of Obama with a Hitler moustache and ‘Impeach for 9/11/2012’ and ‘Both Parties Suck”

    “It’s not hollywod man” said Larouchies to Turtle

    “Really? What colour is the sky in your world, matey?” says Turtle

    Turtle decided not to follow the fluffy white Larouchies into the rabbit hole of whatever fantasy world was on offer today on the street…. Turtle went about his day in the real world instead.

    • Definitely an impeachable offense///

      “It’s not hollywod man” said Larouchies to Turtle

      (This Ain’t No Party… This Ain’t No Disco… This Ain’t No Foolin’ Around)

    • “…caucuses of dinosaurs frozen in time out in the Dakotas…”

      – what were they caucusing about?

      “I move that the Dinosaur race evolve opposable thumbs quickly, so we’s can build a nuke-tipped ICBM and take out that meteor currently heading for the Yucatan – anyone second me?” –

      • – what were they caucusing about?

        the 2016 Republican Primaries. Some candiates wanted an early start.

    • So…… Pat? The Bible is *not* the infallible word of Dog then?

      So can we let the poofters, workers on Sunday (except those at Walmart who are obviously doing Dog’s work), eaters of shrimp and other hell-bound deviants off the hook now? //piss soaked religious bigot off…

    • And yet? He still gets it wrong. Radiocarbon dating is not used on fossils. It only works on organic matter and is only useful to about 60,000 years.

  7. speaking of the unraveled right, Grovel Norquist was on NPR stating the GOP would fall in line with his tax pledge:

    There has not been a wave of defections by Republicans who signed on to his “no new taxes” pledge and even the few who have spoken about possibly going along with revenue increases won’t do so in the end, anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist told NPR Tuesday.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, for instance, imagines being willing to accept some increases in tax revenues if “Democrats would agree to fundamental reform of entitlements,” Norquist told Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep. But such reform, he said, is something Democrats “haven’t done in oh, I don’t know, 60 years.”

    It’s like imagining a “pink unicorn,” Norquist said. “If you had a pink unicorn, how many dollars in taxes would you raise to trade for the pink unicorn? Since pink unicorns do not exist in the real world, it’s never occurred to me to worry about the senator from South Carolina. He’s not going to vote for a deal because the kind of 10-1 ratio deal he’s talking about with real, iron-clad spending cuts is never going to happen.”


  8. Apologies if this has been posted before because if it was, I missed it. Maybe some people have heard this, too, and it is appropriate for the posted pictures.

    • So he pulls up to a car that’s playing loud music, tells them to turn it down. When they tell him to fuck off, he feels threatened and shoots the unarmed kid in the back seat?
      Yeah. Murder. No stand your carseat. just murder.

      • It’s Florida (no disrespect to Vinyl and Pachy) – the backward state.
        Reminiscent of Zimmerman murdering Trayvon Martin. White guys think they are in charge of everything.


    2:02 p.m. CST, November 27, 2012

    WASHINGTON – A top Democrat pressured fellow progressives Tuesday to support – rather than fight – a far-reaching budget deal that includes cuts to entitlement programs to avert the coming fiscal cliff.

    “We cant be so naive to believe that just taxing the rich will solve our problems,” said Sen. Richard Durbin of Illinois, the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate. “Put everything on the table. Repeat. Everything on the table.”

    The assistant majority leader’s speech at the influential Center for American Progress comes at a pivotal moment in budget talks between the White House and Congress. Progressive and labor groups have warned President Obama against cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and other government programs and to instead focus on raising tax revenue in the administration’s negotiations with congressional Republicans .

  10. Oops! Lindsay Graham let a little bit of truth sneak out of his mouth. His attempts to smear Susan Rice are indeed revenge based. For what great wrong is he seeking revenge? The rejection of confirmed war monger John Bolt-on. Here’s the deal, Lindsay.

    John Bolt-on is an unimaginably dangerous person to have anywhere near a diplomatic post. His first and only attempt at “statecraft” is to threaten to bomb anyone who doesn’t agree with him and his idea of “compromise” is to let Britain join the invasion when the threats don’t work to his satisfaction. He’s psychotic and bloodthirsty and he has done nothing but prove his lack of qualifications for any sensitive post since the first time anyone heard his name. Whereas you, Lindsay, are a petty little toddler who is pitching a fit because you haven’t gotten your way.


  11. the NRA’s poster child of the week!!

    A Little Falls, Minnesota man, Byron David Smith, allegedly shot and killed two teens Nicholas Brady, 17, and his cousin Haile Kifer, 18, whom he says broke into his home on Thanksgiving afternoon seeking drugs. Smith maintains that he shot the teen-aged cousins in self defense.

    Smith told investigators he shot 18-year-old Haile Kifer several times as she descended a stairway into his basement, and his Mini 14 rifle jammed as he tried to shoot her again after she had tumbled down the steps.
    Though Kifer was “already hurting,” she let out a short laugh, Smith told investigators. He then pulled out his .22-caliber revolver and shot her several times in the chest, according to the complaint.
    “If you’re trying to shoot somebody and they laugh at you, you go again,”

  12. Cowboys fans petition Obama to remove Jones

    From the AP:

    President Barack Obama helped saved General Motors. Fans in Dallas would like to see him do the same thing with the Cowboys.

    A man from Ft. Benning, Ga. has petitioned President Obama to remove Jerry Jones from power, according to a Dallas Morning News report.

    “We, the Citizens of the Great State of Texas, and Dallas Cowboys fans worldwide, have been oppressed by an over-controlling, delusional, oppressive dictator for way too long,” reads the petition, which is published on the White House website and filed under “Human Rights.” ”Request the Executive Branch’s immediate assistance in removal of owner and GM, Jerry Jones. His incompetence and ego have not only been an extreme disappointment for way too long, but moreover, it has caused extreme mental and emotional duress.“

    At least 25,000 signatures are required for a petition to receive consideration. As of Tuesday, NFL.com reported that fewer than 500 U.S. citizens have signed.

    • 1) Obama doesn’t have to bother destroying repiggies — they’re doing a bang up job of destroying themselves.

      2) Tantaros appears to be in her child-bearing years, so unless she’s pushing out a new baby every year, she probably ought not throw stones from her glass house.

      • It gets hard to stay upbeat when those trying to destroy this country are beyond any semblance of reason. In my darker thoughts it looks like the only thing that will end the decline without mass bloodshed would be the groundless impeachment of President Obama.
