  • Problems with a constipated cat (or dog)? Here's a solution. (vanity)

    One of my cats had a lot of trouble with constipation. She would spend much time just hanging around the littlebox with no success. The vet recommended mineral oil mixed with food, but that didn't work. I tried squirting it into her mouth with a needleless syringe. That's was difficult for a whole bunch of reasons...and she hid when she needed it most.But Happy Days Are Here Again.I found a solution that works like a charm and thought that some of you pet people might like to consider it.I mix a 1/4 teaspoon of generic non-flavored Miralax (an osmotic laxative)...

In an exchange posted on social media Friday from the event on Sunday, the veteran identified as David took a moment to express gratitude towards the GOP outsider, who has made restoring national identity a hallmark of his campaign. "I'd like to say that I'm a veteran of World War II," David began, sparking huge applause from the crowd and prompting Ramaswamy to shake his hand. "What you're saying,...

According to the uploader, @mbbddk, the flight crew for the Hungary-based airline said the man could not take his seat because of his prosthesis. The veteran desperately tried to explain...

    The decaying body of an Army veteran went undiscovered at a Massachusetts facility for a month — because no one bothered to look in an emergency exit stairwell, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs. A 45-page report released Thursday detailed the disappearance and death of Timothy White, 62, whose “significantly decayed” corpse was discovered in June 2020 in a stairwell at the Bedford Veterans Quarters in Massachusetts. White, who had recently been homeless, started living at the privately operated, VA-owned building in January 2020. He was reported missing from his single-occupancy room on May 13 and lived just down...

    A disabled Army veteran was attacked in a grocery store parking lot in Louisville on Mother’s Day after a group of four black women called her a “white bitch.” A Kentucky court will now have to decide if the attack was a hate crime — which it very clearly appears to be. The victim, Pamela Ahlstedt-Brown, told WAVE 3 News that she was leaving a Kroger and was parked in a handicapped space near the entrance. When she started to back out of the space, she said she noticed another vehicle behind her, blocking her in. “I get out and...
  • Pentagon fears there could be an INSIDE attack during Biden's inauguration and will vet all 25,000 National Guard troops stationed in DC - as Army reservist with 'secret' security clearance is arrested in Capitol siege

    U.S. defense officials say they are worried about an insider attack during President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration, prompting the FBI to vet all of the 25,000 National Guard troops coming into Washington for the event. The massive undertaking reflects the extraordinary security concerns that have gripped Washington following the deadly January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol by pro-Trump rioters. It also underscores fears that some of the very people assigned to protect the city over the next several days could present a threat to the incoming president and other VIPs in attendance.

    This is a sad video.  Nick is a combat vet who loves America.  He served 12 years in the Marine Corps Recon, in combat in Afghanistan, etc..  Now he just wants to raise his family, run his business (a gym) and hopefully one retire.  Although like many of people he is waking up to a fundamentally changed America.
