On Tuesday, longtime Fox News contributor Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (Ret) quit the network in what he described as "nuclear" style. In the e-mail he sent to colleagues was included this explanation:

Four decades ago, I took an oath as a newly commissioned officer. I swore to "support and defend the Constitution," and that oath did not expire when I took off my uniform. Today, I feel that Fox News is assaulting our constitutional order and the rule of law, while fostering corrosive and unjustified paranoia among viewers. Over my decade with Fox, I long was proud of the association. Now I am ashamed. In my view, Fox has degenerated from providing a legitimate and much-needed outlet for conservative voices to a mere propaganda machine for a destructive and ethically ruinous administration. When prime-time hosts--who have never served our country in any capacity--dismiss facts and empirical reality to launch profoundly dishonest assaults on the FBI, the Justice Department, the courts, the intelligence community (in which I served) and, not least, a model public servant and genuine war hero such as Robert Mueller--all the while scaremongering with lurid warnings of "deep-state" machinations-- I cannot be part of the same organization, even at a remove. To me, Fox News is now wittingly harming our system of government for profit.

For all practical purposes, Fox News can technically be called "state news" in light of the revelation about Hannity's influence over the white house, to the point of being Trump's unofficial/official chief of staff, using the same lawyer to consult.. Hannity is Joseph Goebbels. We have about 60 million Nazi's/Nazi sympathisers in the USA now who accept this as the new normal for our country.

The GOP must be stopped to save America.

^ Just the opposite. A very good day. A wonderful day! It's gonna get even better in a few hours.

Do you think FZ was having a bad day when he wrote Hot Plate Heaven?? How about when he showed up on Crossfire?

Mr Nice plasters other people's political propaganda all over the Zappa forum. Ask him what kind of day he's having.

You seem to be upset. Are having trouble playing with others?

fox news

-A fox cub had to be rescued after it became lodged in the back of a dishwasher while searching for food.

The four-month-old fox crept into the Enfield home of vet Dr Simon Hayes, and managed to get itself stuck in a tight spot when the father of three walked out of the kitchen.

Dr Hayes had to use his expertise with animals to coax it out of the dishwasher, before documenting the unusual incident online.


In a blog post, the vet wrote: “At 10pm on Sunday evening, loading the dishwasher as normal, I got distracted and went out the room for a few minutes.

“When I came back, there he was, a little fox cub probably 4-5 months old sitting in the dishwasher. He must have come in the open back door and been looking for food.

^ Apparently.

The only fox I've seen face to face was a rabid fox. I was probably 10 years old. I came around the corner on my bike and the fox ran off into the woods behind my neighbor's house. I didn't know the fox had rabies until later when some grown ups encountered her/him at another edge of the woods. I remember feeling bad for the fox. I don't remember any neighborhood pets being harmed.

more fox news soon...
