Lookitim go!

Bill the Badger takes his leave. I tried slowing the video down, but then he’s just a slower streak of blur.

He was snuffling around the front garden late last night right when I wanted to go to bed. I knew the moment I opened the front door he would vanish, and there you have it (I can hit a button and manually record to this computer).

Behold, my white trash chicken empire! This is what happens when you expect three or four bantams and you get ten.

The house to the far left was my very first. It was slated for demolition when I suddenly had to house a bunch of cockerels. The one in the middle was a hospital cage I used for sick chickens. It was never meant for permanent housing. Whoever gets stuck in it overnight gets the most free range time next day to compensate.

The one at the far right is the proper new chicken house. Currently, it houses the two hens and one rooster. Why is the fox so much better at catching hens?

He looks like a big boy. Did you check the cliffside camera?


I hope he’s OK.

Good that you named him.
Bill is a nice name.
Very inoffensive.
You never see dictators of third world countries or mass murderers with names like “Bill”.
Besides if he were some crazed murderer he’d have three names like William Mortenson Badger.

We know you secretly like him, otherwise you’d perhaps have named him Boris or Baphomet.
But not Baldric.

@durned…tongue-in-cheek, yes?

Coz while Bill wasn’t gettin’ busy with cigars, fondling and pressing his junk against every woman in sight, he was cluster bombing Serbia under cover of NATO…which is pretty much a war crime. Today, thousands of unexploded cluster munitions can still be found in the Serbian countryside maiming children mostly.

Goodness me, BJM. Rant away. Knock yourself out!

I stopped doing so much politics posting these days because I assume we all hang out in the same places and it gets a bit same old, same old. Also, other people are having really good Photoshop ideas and it makes me mad!

Also, politics in 2021 scare me shitless.

@BJM – no no, when you’re a big country you can blow up as many aspirin factories and use cruise missiles or cluster munitions any time you like on anyone you choose to claim is a ‘terrorist’. Especially if your target country can’t fight back right away!

Reminds me very much of the Battleship Diplomacy the major powers practiced in rolling up to the coast of someone (weaker) and threatening them with, literally, big guns.

I’m not much in favor of this semi unrestricted warfare of attacking, because that’s what we do, third world countries knowing they aren’t going to be able to do anything about it. Since we just committed an act of war, we know they’re not going to declare war on us.

I say semi, because if a known terrorist is waltzing around Russia, Germany or China, as examples, we absolutely will NOT hit them with a cruise missile.

Might makes Right doesn’t sit well with me.

NATO excuses, yes, we’ve gotten quite wag the doggish with our never ending wars on this thing and that thing.

Good that Covid special Agent Mu is waiting in the offing to keep the peasants locked down and boost the profit margins of big pharma who is generously giving out all those ‘free’ vaccine shots.
