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.
Democratic representative from Illinois Jan Schakowsky says you're "despicable" because you don't want to pay the government whatever the hell they want whenever the hell they want it without whimpering.
Let's compare and contrast two "community activists," shall we?
Congressman's husband going to jail. "he will still fight for social and economic justice"? I guess he still be a crook when he gets out. I don't think I heard what party they were from in the news account. That must mean Dem. Also noted he was a community organizer.
Jan's heavily endorsed candidate for mayor in a very Democratic Party suburb in her district was wiped out in the recent election--which may explain her added pique. There are the first glimmers of worry among many of the usual culprits in the Democratic Party that their success has reached its zenith and it's a slippery slope down to their ultimate fate.
Time to sweep out the totally corrupt Chicago Machine pols and their like in Congress in 2010, and at 1600 in 2012.They are a disgrace and embarrassment to this great nation, Democrats all, the lowest of low. Boss Tweed looks like an honest pol compared to these thieves.
BTW, Daffy Duck very nearly ruined the word 'despicable' in certain precincts at certain times past. It couldn't be used without every lout in earshot piping up with a rich salive-aerosoled "That'th DethPICable!"
