Can you be a Catholic and a Republican?? The Pope says...

   In the recent past, it was difficult to tell apart a Republican from a Catholic, due to the Pope's stand on what appears to be anti women's rights.

Poor Andy...a strangling Polar Bear!

Andy's tracking collar is too tight and he's strangling, with

job of attaching it to him. He will slowly die suffering if
someone doesn't help him. Go to Change.Org and search
Andy if you care. Oh, what we horrid humans do to earth's
