I’m not a Democrat or a Republican. What I’m against is the bullying coming from the right. Always from the right. Always. This is a flat-out attempt to ridicule the bullies and throw some light on the heroes. I've got lots to work with.
I don't own any of these images. The disdainful comments are all mine, however.
A study published today in the journal PLoS ONE shows that the Tasmanian tiger, also known as the thylacine, had extremely low genetic variability right before humans hunted it to extinction. Its living cousin, the Tasmanian devil, displays a similar genetic plight, making it especially vulnerable to a contagious cancer that is decimating the species…
As if that weren’t enough, Menzies said that the Tasmanian government in 1888 “placed a formal bounty on the animal in response to persuasion by the agricultural lobby.” The Woolnorth Company, which owned 350,000 acres of land, had previously introduced sheep, which they claimed were threatened by the Tasmanian tigers.
