almost looks like a sequence of photos i took a couple of years ago
i was birding a small pond where a group of assorted water birds (ducks, pipers, stilts, grebes) were huddled up feeding on shore and about 15 yards away a black vulture was looking at the crowd. apparently the vulture became inquisitive and approached the crowd and as it got near all the water birds scattered into the pond. thats when the vulture turned around and looked at me as i was photographing the scene with a look which said [do i smell, whats up, and you can fill in some cute caption].
Looks like he is waiting on someone to save him

In case any of you folks are having a nice day I shall quickly put an end to that. If this article is correct, get used to having Mr. Trump as POTUS for a full eight years.
In other words, Democrats need to take back the Mahoning Valley if they’re going to take back the White House. And, given Trump’s showing here, that may be more difficult than firing up the Jeannette Blast Furnace at Youngstown Sheet and Tube, which went cold in 1977 and has stayed that way.
Everything you've ever felt about this country is now being put to a test. We read about this s*** when we were kids. Other countries that went through this. Many of them failed because their constitution didn't have the right checks and balances. We believed it couldn't happen to us, but here we are.
On one hand this is terrifying, on the other it's fascinating. It's a schizophrenic year to be sure. But make no mistake: this is a test of a 250 year old document. Literally everything they talked about is now FRONT AND CENTER and we have to depend on, gulp, the Republican party to handle it. If this system is set-up correctly? Political pressure will get to them (yes, even them). This isn't about right and wrong, it's truly about whether the "pressure" still works. I contend that an abject lack of a functioning media will make it more difficult, but either way - that's what we're finding out right now: does it work. Does this piece of paper written in the 1700s WORK.
Try and look at it this way. I know it seems we're rolling back progressive issues at a dizzying pace but we really aren't. Nothing can't be corrected so far. However, we're certainly in unprecedented territory. It's very possible the constitution never foresaw THIS and the experiment that is our democracy will be over. Thankfully - there are other countries on this planet and we don't need to colonize Mars.
But truly? This is an easy test and one we can almost be thankful to Trump for: he's painfully obvious, clearly corrupt - he brags about everything from sexual assault to obstruction of justice. He says it IN [censored] INTERVIEWS. This is EASY.
Let's see what happens next.
