And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street

Bald-eagle-two-seagulls

The once-in-a-lifetime nature shot was captured by David Canales , a recent graduate from the University of San Antonio, Texas who lives in Anchorage, Alaska.

Yesterday, Ali and myself ventured forth on our daily walkies. It was around noon, the sun was high in the sky and all was good with the world…apart from Trump and his idiotic counterpart in NK.

As we made our way along the grassy verge, I was suddenly deafened by what I can only call a cacophony of bird cries. I looked up and to my amazement saw about three billion birds on trees and wires all furiously screeching at a specified area of the soccer field.

As I looked in the direction of their ire, I was astounded to see a bird of prey feasting upon a white bird. I walked a little closer and the bird flew off. I’m fairly sure that the dead bird was a seagull.

My husband said no way was it a seagull, but I did the googles and yes, it probably was. I walked up there an hour ago, and all that is left is white feathers.

So, I lied about Mulberry Street…but you don’t expect to see this in suburban Dublin.

That was yesterday.

Today is another day.

I’m getting fond of John McCain.

This Is Not Reassuring

WP:

BREAKING: North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reacted angrily to President Trump’s speech at the United Nations General Assembly, calling it “unprecedented rude nonsense.” The North Korean leader said he will make the U.S. president “pay dearly for his speech calling for totally destroying” North Korea.

“I am now thinking hard about what response he could have expected when he allowed such eccentric words to trip off his tongue,” Kim said in a statement released by the state Korean Central News Agency, which also published a photo of the North Korean leader sitting at his desk. “I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged U.S. dotard with fire.”

Holy fuck!

Theresa May Rebukes Donald Trump

Courtesy of The Guardian:

Theresa May has rebuked Donald Trump for suggesting the people responsible for an explosion on a London tube train were known to the Metropolitan police.

The prime minister expressed her frustration as she spoke for the first time about the “cowardly attack” at Parsons Green underground station in west London, which injured at least 22 people.

Trump claimed on Twitter that the terrorist attack involved “sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard”, despite no such information having been released publicly by police. He also blamed it on “loser terrorists”, promoted his travel ban and advocated a “proactive and nasty” policy against Islamic State.

Asked about Trump’s potential breach of convention on intelligence sharing, May was unusually critical of the US president, saying: “I never think it’s helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation.”

When the president tweeted, no suspect had been identified and no group or individual had claimed responsibility for the blast.

The Met police said the president’s comments regarding Friday morning’s incident were unhelpful and “pure speculation”.

There was no immediate response from the White House to questions about the basis of Trump’s assertion.

Then Trump came out with this…

He is an absolute disgrace. I don’t know what else to say.
