As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artworkhere, being shared by the page, “Anarchy Girl,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…
“A dog is able to learn up to 250 words and gestures. A dog can count up to five and can perform simple math. Equivalent human age: 3. A cat doesn’t give a fuck and is sick of your shit. Equivalent human age: 42”
The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of family, after I posted aphotobeing shared by the page, “Being Classically Liberal“…
“Found lost dog (Wichita): Found this little guy yesterday. He has been roaming the streets in our neighborhood and we finally caught him. Possible abuse because he is aggressive. Want to rehome him since our dogs do not seem to like him and growls back at them. I think he would do good in a home with no kids and someone who can give him lots of love.”
Greg L.: Isn’t that a fox?
Rayn: A coyote. 🙂
Tammy S.: It’s not a dog?! So it can’t be in anyone’s home. Thought it was a dog. Well he/she belongs in the wild.
Rayn: This reminds me of another classic:
“Cat found! I found this guy the other day on my back porch. I tried feeding him and it turns out that he is not very friendly because I think he may be scared. Not quite sure the breed but I am assuming he is part Siamese. I have him in a crate because he is not really house broken. If he is yours please reply.”
(Josh Guckert) Several months after earning the Libertarian presidential nomination for a second time, Gary Johnson awaits news on perhaps an ever more important front: his pending Facebook friend request to former Congressman Ron Paul. The former New Mexico Governor is also awaiting an acceptance to get into the secret “Former Libertarian Presidential Nominees” group, of which Paul is an administrator.
Pressed for comment, Johnson assured interviewers that it was a mere oversight on Paul’s part. Since sending the request in January, the current LP nominee has messaged Dr. Paul on three different occasions. The first message read “Hey Ron! Just seeing if you got my friend request!” The next said only “Taxation is theft, amirite? Lol.” Finally the most recent asked Paul if he would be interested in going to see the new movie Snowden.
