Long Legged Birds

On one of my ventures into the backwoods and backwaters of the Tennessee River, I came upon these birds ambling around in the shallow waters. Maybe because of global warming, it has been reported that certain types of water birds, similar to these, have been seen in the North Alabama area where they had not been seen before. These are just one type of long legged water bird that I have observed recently. I have actually seen a at least three types, two types of the larger crane like birds, and depending on whether these are blue heron juveniles or a separate species, I have seen one and maybe two chicken sized long legged water birds also. While they are somewhat rare in these parts, it is my understanding that certain of these birds are indeed rare, and even endangered anywhere. If you happen to know about this particular water fowl, I’d appreciate it if you’d let me know.

    FLAG BURNING VIDEO!

    Absolute power corrupts absolute, and as I recall Ted Turner, wise man that he is, once called Christians “stupid.” He eventually apologized, but for what I don’t know. While Christians are foolishly attempting to take over government with religion, the potential grows for a flag burning amendment that would essentially set the stage for the dissolution of all basic constitutional rights to unravel like a braided sisal rope without a boy scout.

    Profile Of Indoctrination And Corruption: Madison County Sheriff Blake Dorning

    A cops job is dangerous. True enough. But, take another looks a the facts. Since 1880, 22 law enforcement officials have been killed in Madison County. In the last ten years alone, I’ve counted about 15 unnecessary deaths that were the result of jailer depravity, or excessive force by cops. A that rate, the cops have killed around 200 people – almost all of which were innocent or guilty of nothing serious. A track record of 22 cops to 200 innocent citizens isn’t very good. In fact, it’s goddamn unacceptable.
