The photos are of the 2010 Mezhdurechensk mine disaster in Russia. I’ll tell you one of the reasons why the rightwing slimers hate Vladimir Putin. When the word came of the explosion, he went out to the Kuzbass, and he saw to it that the owners paid up to the families of the dead miners. On top of that, he saw to it that the social welfare system didn’t screw anyone over. George Bush never did likewise… indeed, the Republicans make it clear that the workers get all the pain… the McMansion pigs get all the gain. Not only do they stack the deck unmercifully, they want to stack it against working folks even more. That’s the way it is, now… I seem to find something WRONG in that. We can do something about that in November…

At Vallorbe Zoo in Switzerland, Ursina went out for a walk with her three cubs for the first time.

******

Bears carry their babies the way cats do.

******

The cubs’ names are Ben, Yogi, and Zora.

******

Zookeepers don’t know the exact date when the bear cubs were born, but they say it was in January.

******

“I told you they were looking at us”.

******

“Now, this is how we’re going to do it…”

******

“Time to go in, dears…”

******

Mother DOES know best…
