We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

One last weekend of skiing for me, but already planning for summer. My group just leased our usual 345 Conquest for July and August, which we keep docked in Rhode Island. Thinking about beaches (that's a Theo beach gal) and fishing and clams, and hoping we get a break from this global cooling.
Strange how many people are reconsidering not joining Obama's administration. The acclaimed Dr. Gupta just changed his mind, and two Treasury folks did too. What's that all about? It's possible that they aren't sure they can get with the program. See Nobody wants to work with Timmy.
Related re Geithner: "we've never seen such incompetence."
Obama never speaks without a Teleprompter. That's not magic; that's kinda lame. Plus, what happens when their energy policy eliminates electricity? Related: Obama The Magician at Am Thinker. Truthfulness is turning out not to be one of his virtues.
Instead of "The O," I think I'll start calling him "The Teleprompter," or "The T" for short. No, I do not have ODS yet, but I do not like where things are headed.

Nunchucks are illegal in New York? Sheesh. And they are neither automatic nor semiautomatic.
This story about Obama and Brown's visit is almost too embarassing to read
And the initial stab at "smart diplomacy" with Russia is equally embarassing. Hello. They are pursuing their own interests. For how long will the MSM give Obama "A"s just for showing up? Or what's the plan, bend over for Russia and smack the Brits? Jules
Do the rich vote Republican? No
Sad: GOP outreach to Hispanics a flop
Quote from Cramer:
The UN consider laws against criticism of Islam. Good grief. The UN is the joke heard 'round the world.
Obama's energy proposals and your utility taxes. neoneo

just take a peek please and read
Also please pass this along.
I recommend using the tinyurl I used above as the one for the link gives my computer fits.
When Obama is no longer is in office, will any race cards be left ?
Will the deck be constantly replenished at the whim of those who stand benefit ?
He brought them with him (don't know about the plural, the only name I have seen is "Michelle").
I would think he will take them to his next gig.
King of England?
Regarding the race card, Obama will play that if and when things get worse. In an effort to stop dissent, he will claim that people who are protesting are being racist.
Instead of The One I've been using HHC (His Hopeful Changeness) but it isn't catching on.
Freedom of speech and all, but I ask people to lose the term "Mudboy". The users may or may not mean it racially -- I'm sorry to say I think they may -- but it's too easy to turn it into a racial attack even if it isn't meant so. We don't need no stinking racism -- HHC is so vulnerable on so many other levels.
Just to be fair: the term Mudboy isn't in this comment thread.
And also, just to be fair; Leag is Habu's racist alter ego, just so we know who the real coward is.
Mudboy originated in response to a link posted here @ MF by Dick Morris who wrote,
So Obama’s name will be mud by 2012 and probably by 2010 as well. And the Republican Party will make big gains and regain much of its lost power.
Did ya get any on ya yet, coward?
Mudboy Hussein likes yall's kind, me thinks.
Some folks might think kind is racial slur, while others might think it a sexist slight.
only excuse Habu needs is a fake nic like 'Leag' to hide his inner racist.
I don't need an excuse to use the Queen's English, darling.
What I provided was the origne of the Magic Negro's Mudboy monicer.
His name is already mud for those of us who see him for what he is; a lying, thieving, murderer.
It's all in how the hearer hears.
Muslims cry racism when any negative is raised about Muhammad's god or one of his slaves.
No racism involved with it but in the weak mind yall share.
Miss Miller was trying a bit of Rare Bird's incendiary style but treason doesn't describe Limbaugh's bombast.
Treason does apply in Mudboy Hussein's making war on Americans and in adhering to their enemies and he should be impeached, me thinks.
Race card is a non-starter now - too many jobs and too much $$$$ lost. With stakes that high, all of the old smokescreens and red herrings will go by the wayside as we get down to the nitty gritty. When so many have lost their jobs, and wealth, charges of racism will, if you will pardon the expression, pale by comparison. Race card was ok as long as we had the illusion of wealth and a normal economic recovery but no more. All the old rules are being re-written as we speak, all bets are off. We have truly entered a new era.
Except for the spelling error in "All the old rules are being ignored and buried as we speak,..."
Are you kidding? The race card will live on until the end of time. If race relations improve, the Left has nothing to sell; therefore, they must never improve. A black man with his own business, the keys to a Mercedes, and a condo on each coast is the Left's worse nightmare.
