biomorphosis:

The maned wolf is the largest canine species in South America and closely resembles a red fox on stilts because of its long legs. It is neither a wolf, fox, coyote, or dog  but rather a member of its own Chrysocyon genus, making it a truly unique animal. They possess a mane that runs from the back of the head to the shoulders which can be erected to intimidate other animals when displaying aggression or when they feel threatened. 

Unlike other wolves that live in packs, maned wolves do not form or hunt in packs but prefer to live alone.  Maned wolf is considered as the last surviving species of the Pleistocene Extinction, which wiped out all other large canids from the continent.

Financial Illiteracy of American Leaders…No Wonder America Is Doomed

MPs lack basic knowledge about the fundamentals of money, leaving them ill-equipped to understand the impending dangers of another house price boom or a second credit bubble, according to an exclusive Dods Monitoring poll commissioned by Positive Money, the campaign body calling for fundamental reform of our money and banking system.

When asked questions about who creates the nation’s money in the UK, nearly three quarters got the wrong answer. 71% of MPs believed that only the government has the power to create money. In reality, the government now only creates coins and notes, which make up just 3% of all the money in the economy. The other 97% of money exists as bank deposits – the electronic numbers in your bank account). This type of money is created by high-street banks – not by the government.

Just over 1 in 10 MP accurately understood that banks create new money every time they make a loan, or that money is destroyed whenever individuals or businesses repay loans.

Ben Dyson, founder of Positive Money, said: “MPs have no chance of understanding the house price bubble unless they know these basic facts about money. The financial crisis was caused by banks that created too much money and lent it recklessly. We’re now in danger of repeating the same mistakes.”

An Alien World
© Chris Miller / National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest
 Hang Son Doong is located in central Vietnam and is the world’s largest cave. It was only explored for the first time in 2009 and is just now opening up to very limited tourism. This photo shows some members of our party beginning the climb up one of the two collapsed roof sections or dolines that are prominent features in the cave. The vegetation that can be seen is entirely inside the cave, with the real jungle floor some 150m further above. Two-way radios and a laser pointer were used to get people in position and to ensure their headlamps provided just the right amount of illumination. Location: Hang Son Doong, Quang Binh, Vietnam

How the Christian Right Is Getting Beat at Its Own Game, By Satanists of All People
One of the favorite myths that Christian conservatives like to tell about themselves is that they are champions protecting “religious freedom” from the supposed oppressions of a secular humanist society. But that argument is increasingly being tested by, of all people, Satanists. Yes, people who claim to worship the demon that Christians believe runs hell are quickly learning how easy it is to show that the Christian right never had any intention of protecting “religious freedom”. Instead, time and time again, Satanists are showing that the conservative Christian definition of “religious freedom” doesn’t apply at all to faiths, like Satanism, that offend them. Faced with the demands of Satanists, the supposed religious freedom crusaders of the religious right turn right back into the theocrats they always were, interested only in having government endorsement of their religion and often eager to demand that the government stomp out religious practices that offend them.
Oh yeah, and it all has the side benefit of exposing the Christian right as a humorless movement that struggles to tell the difference between reality and satire. But that’s just a bonus for observers.
Oklahoma is the home of another stunt by much-funnier Satanists who have figured out how to expose this particular Christian right hypocrisy.  Christians put a monument to the Ten Commandments up at the Oklahoma Statehouse, declaring their right to do so as one of religious freedom. The Satanic Temple, run out of New York City, responded by demanding the same religious freedom to put up a monument to the demon Baphomet.

Mikey Weistein vs Pat Robertson
Voluminous allegations corroborate a scenario showing that Pat Robertson deserves an honorary medal for being a Class A Coward of the highest rank. This vile specimen is to human dignity and sanity and integrity and character what dog shit is on the menu of a fine French restaurant.
Let me explain. In his 1972 autobiography, Shout it From the Housetops, Robertson boasted about his outstanding service as a “Marine combat officer in Korea.” The only problem with the claim is that many of his former comrades allege that never once did he ever see battle. Robertson filed a libel suit against McCloskey, only to be unceremoniously dropped later on. Contradicting Robertson’s claims, war hero and former seven-term Congressman Paul “Pete” McCloskey alleged that the “Marine combat officer” may have used his privileged family ties as the son of a Virginia Senator to pull the strings and skirt his combat duties. Apparently, the order from General Lemuel Shepherd was to “Take good care of him; his Daddy is Chairman of the Senate Armed Forces Appropriations Committee.” 
But don’t take it from me; take it from the late Corporal U.S.M.C. Leo T. Cronin, who participated in the first-wave amphibious assault by Marines who fought tooth and nail in the Battle of Inchon, Korea. Commenting in a Letter to the Editor penned amidst Robertson’s failed Presidential run in 1988, Cronin didn’t mince any words:

There is a person who calls himself a combat Marine. He is not. His name is Pat Robertson. I saw him often in the division headquarters where he was clean-shaven and clothed and showered.
He was in charge of making sure that the officers’ booze ration was handed out and re-supplied. He was a lieutenant. He was in my battalion.
The line company marines I saw smelled badly, looked poorly. For months at a time they were cold, eating C-rations. Trying to stay warm and dry was a constant battle. These line-company men were the combat Marines of the First Marine Division.
Neither Pat Robertson nor I could carry their gear. He is trying to get elected by standing on those frozen bodies I saw, by putting himself in the company of those seven Marines who repulsed the enemy.
Imagine a person who aspires to be President being so loose with the truth, so lacking in grace and so dishonorable.
He says God talks to him. I’d like to hear what God says to him about this.

American Corporations Too Busy Cheating Taxpayers to Actually Produce Good Products
Treasury Secretary Jack Lew’s announcement of a series of new rules to reduce the financial incentives behind corporate inversions tells you a lot about where our economy sits right now. Productivity and growth scarcely matter as much as what I would call the “gimmick economy.” Companies now spend an inordinate amount of time figuring out not how to beat their competition, but how to prosper from tricks and loopholes their accountants find buried in the law. Every corporation has become, at the root, a financial company, adept at moving money around on paper and little else. And the government has to scramble in a never-ending race to keep up with the innovations.

Whitey in Blue Protecting us from those Mean Black People

Will the pattern stop? How many more innocent black men need to be gunned down by police before something is done?

South Carolina state trooper Sean Groubert followed Levar Jones into the parking lot of a convenience store. It is evident from the video that Levar Jones was simply routinely getting out of his SUV likely to go shopping.

As Levar Jones is exiting the truck, trooper Sean Groubert asked to see his license. As Levar Jones turns around to get the license out of the SUV, trooper Sean Groubert shouts, “Get out of the car” as he fires several shots at Levar Jones.

According to The State,

An S.C. trooper who stopped a man for a seat belt violation outside Columbia and then shot him – apparently without provocation – was arrested Wednesday and charged with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.

Sean Groubert, 31, a lance corporal who was fired from the Highway Patrol after the shooting incident, now faces 20 years in prison if convicted of wrongfully shooting the driver, Levar Jones.

Groubert was booked Wednesday evening at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center. He was fired from the patrol last Friday.

While this officer was charged based on this video, it is not always the case that video is enough. After-all, John Crawford III was executed last month in a WalMart holding a BB gun. The Walmat surveillance video proves John Crawford III was never a threat yet he was shot dead by Beavercreek police. A grand jury refused to indict the officers.

This latest attack on an unarmed black man guilty simply of driving while black continues to reinforce the fact that the police is one of the biggest menaces to black men. Levar Jones survived. How many have not? How many had their lives changed forever for the encounter.

It is not in our heads. There are videos of many of these incidences now. Will America come to the defense of a portion of its citizenry that continues to be maligned and savagely attacked by police?

Guatemalans Are Not Main Stream Gringo (Blessed to be “White”) Mentally Degenerate
Massive Protests Lead Guatemala to Reject ‘Monsanto Law’ in Court
In a landmark decision on September 4, following intense pressure by indigenous people, trade unions, farmer’s organizations and others, the Guatemalan judiciary ruled to suspend the controversial Plant Variety Protection Law, commonly referred to as the ‘Monsanto Law’ because of the multinational biotech company’s involvement in it.
It was due to go into effect on September 26, but as bilaterals reported, the Guatemalan Peasant Indigenous Workers Movement (MSICG) presented a motion of general complete unconstitutionality against the law and the Court responded by specifically ruling on Articles 46 and 55, suspending them on the grounds that both could lead to serious impacts for the people and the country.
How did this law come to pass in the first place? 
Apparently the Guatemalan Parliament passed the law without a debate all “while the population was distracted with the World Cup.” Then on August 26, MSICG went to the Guatemalan Constitutional Court and appealed it.
Leading up to this ruling, the government was under extreme pressure by the people of Guatemala to rule against it. Protestors totaling between 40 to 120 thousand briefly blocked the Inter-American Highway, and a few days later, hundreds of teachers protested in the country’s capital.
Militarization of Law Enforcement in the US?….there will be no American protestor group totaling 120K. American is the global epicenter of corporate cancer and it will get worse for Americans!

NYPD: Cowards in Blue

The recording shows Sandra Amezquita, who is 5-foot-4 and five months pregnant, being grabbed by the arm and thrown to the pavement with the cop on her back in Sunset Park around 2:15 a.m.

The baby’s father, Ronel Lemos, said he watched in horror as his wife hit the ground belly-first.

Moments later, another unidentified woman was violently flung to the ground on Fifth Ave. and 41st St.
