Massive Killer Diamondback Rattlesnake Caught in Arkansas

 

imageThis behemoth of a diamondback could be the largest ever found.

A man in southern Sebastian County, Arkansas may have killed one of the largest western diamondback rattlesnakes ever seen after it allegedly attacked several of his dogs. According to the man, who remains unidentified, the snake was found on his property in West Hartford and bit at least two of his dogs, killing one. He dispatched it afterwards and the pictures of the snake were widely shared on social media.

Judging from the photograph, experts estimated the diamondback at around eight feet in length, which if accurate would make it the largest western diamondback in the world.

“Normally [they’re] around four or five feet, depending on what type it is,” pet store owner Dan Jones told 5 News.

Western diamondbacks over six feet in length are rare and only one reliable specimen has been found to be over seven feet. According to the Amphibian and Reptile Diversity Research Center at the University of Texas, that snake was captured in Cedar Hill, Texas and measured 92 inches overall. It is commonly believed that western Texas has some of the largest western diamondbacks. Further to the south, the diamondback holds a fearsome reputation as the single most dangerous snake—in terms of human fatalities—in Mexico. Part of this is due to the snake’s aggressiveness. Western diamondbacks are one of the few rattlesnakes that will stand their ground when threatened and if the rattling fails to discourage its foe, the snake will strike. Their venom carries a 10 to 20 percent fatality rate if untreated.

Despite the threat these creatures pose, it is illegal to kill a rattlesnake in most states unless you are in immediate danger. Experts say that venomous snakes are useful in cutting down on local rodent populations, which without predators could grow quickly out of control.

It is currently unknown if wildlife officials are investigating the snake’s death.

It’s Almost Not Funny

Posted on 10/29/2015 by Wirecutter

A Russian arrives in New York City as a new immigrant to the United States. It’s 11:00 AM on a Wednesday.

He stops the first person he sees walking down the street and says, “Thank you Mr. American for letting me come into this country, giving me housing, food stamps, free medical care, and a free education!”

The passerby says, “You are mistaken, I am a Mexican and here illegally.”

The man goes on and encounters another passerby. “Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in America.”

The person says, “I not American, I Vietnamese and here on a Green Card that expired two years ago.”

The new arrival walks farther and stops the next person he sees, then shaking his hand, and says, “Thank you for wonderful America!” That person puts up his hand and says, “I am from Middle East. I am not American. It was easy to get here via Arizona.”

He finally sees a nice lady and asks, “Are you an American?”

She says, “No, I am from Africa here on an Education Green Card that expired 10 years ago.”

Puzzled, he asks her, “Where are all the Americans?”

The African lady checks her watch and says: “Probably at work.”

Hillary Trashed the VA Scandal: Veterans Have a Thing or Two to Say About That

Hillary Clinton’s efforts to claim the deadly neglect of veterans by Obama VA officials is all a made-up Republican conspiracy is drawing a harsh response from veterans, and investigators looking into the misconduct.

Responding to investigations finding over 64,000 veterans had medical procedures canceled in order to cover up a case backlog, and dozens of veterans died as a result, Clinton called it “overblown” and that Republicans invented the controversy……SHE LIED AGAIN!

“It’s not been as widespread as it has been made out to be,” Clinton said on MSNBC, even though the VA’s own inspector general called the scandal “widespread.”

Even with over 64,000 cases of neglect, Clinton dismissed veterans’ complaints as “overblown.”

Clinton’s attack on veterans came after a new investigation found the neglect is still occurring at the same VA facilities originally cited.

Veterans advocates are appalled.

“The VA scandal was caused by dishonest bureaucrats who chose to whitewash the department’s problems rather than solve them,” said House Veterans Affairs Committee chairman Jeff Miller (R-FL). “Those who repeat that same shameful pattern of behavior are only shortchanging veterans while giving failed VA bureaucrats cover for continued malfeasance.”

Miller took aim directly at Clinton’s politicization of the issue.

There is simply no denying that the problems at the Department of Veterans Affairs are indeed widespread,” he said. “Anyone who would claim the opposite simply isn’t paying attention.”

“Hillary Clinton has shown that just like the Obama Administration, of which she was a part, she will minimize the deep-rooted problems within the Department of Veterans Affairs and engage in partisan attacks against those who propose real and fundamental reform,” said Concerned Veterans of America CEO Pete Hegseth, himself a former U.S. Army major awarded two Bronze Stars.

From The Dept. Of Energy: There Is MORE GAS Coming From OBAMA Than All The Pumkins In The World!

image

Via Free Beacon:

The Department of Energy claims that Halloween pumpkins contribute to climate change, suggesting that the plants can be converted to biofuel in order to spare the environment.

“With the passing of Halloween, millions of pounds of pumpkins have turned from seasonal decorations to trash destined for landfills, adding to more than 254 million tons of municipal solid waste (MSW) produced in the United States every year,” a post to the Energy Department’s website this week read.

“At landfills, MSW decomposes and eventually turns into methane–a harmful greenhouse gas that plays a part in climate change, with more than 20 times the warming effect of carbon dioxide (CO2),” the government agency warned.

Bozell: CNBC Debate Was an ‘Encyclopedic Example of Liberal Media Bias’

MRC president Brent Bozell issued a statement Wednesday night criticizing the overall tilt and tone of the CNBC Republican debate in Boulder:

“The CNBC moderators acted less like journalists and more like Clinton campaign operatives. What was supposed to be a serious debate about the many issues plaguing our economy was given up for one Democratic talking point after another served up by the so-call ‘moderators.’ They clearly war-gamed this thinking that a relentless series of personal attacks on the candidates would somehow drive their ratings and help Hillary Clinton.

The CNBC debate will go down in history as an encyclopedic example of liberal media bias on stage. The audience roared its disdain for these so-called ‘journalists,’ and all of America heard it. CNBC should be embarrassed for their pitiful display of partisan liberal media bias and apologize to the GOP candidates and the American people.”
