    Everyone thinks Pandas are such cute and cuddly looking animals. Easy for them to say though. I doubt they have ever been attacked by one? Well the guy in this video learned that you better not get too close to them. Especially if you got something they want. As I watched this and some other videos on Pandas, I was struck how China takes such good care of their Pandas? After all, what China gives the Pandas is what Democrats in America are promising for all the people. Half of us will play all day, and the other half...

    Contrary to what a viral video suggests, it’s unrelated to the pandemic.There was recently a video circulating on Twitter that can only be described as shockingly cute. Made viral by the Austin-based science communicator Joe Hanson, the clip shows two black bear cubs wrestling on the patio of the Chisos Mountains Lodge at Big Bend National Park, teetering like toddlers covered in fur. The camera pans to reveal their mother, staring into the distance with what looks like an apathetic glare. And as if that wasn’t enough, the camera captures a third cub sitting in a bucket. It’s the exact...

The professional photographer who took these photos said the bear came back every night that week to play...

The former Chicago Bears player, 37, reposted golfer Jack Nicklaus’s letter in support of Trump that described how “disappointed” he had become at the criticism the current president has faced and captioned it, “Never a doubt.” “He has delivered on his promises. He’s worked for the average person,” Nicklaus wrote in his letter. “In my opinion, he has been more diverse than any President I have seen and has tried to help people from all walks of life—equally.”

    Former NFL coach Mike Ditka had a lot to say about the NFL players who plan to take a knee during the national anthem. He simply doesn’t care for it and he suggests anyone who’s taking a knee for the national anthem may as well get out of the country. But don’t listen to me. Take it from the man himself as quoted by TMZ: “If you can’t respect our national anthem, get the hell out of the country. That’s the way I feel. Of course, I’m old fashioned, so I’m only going to say what I feel. You don’t...
