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.
So what? 1 in 5 homeowners underwater. Most who bought in the last few years, no doubt. Same as people who bought stocks in the last few years - or who bought cars on time. Or a new chain saw on their Home Depot credit card, for that matter.
Given our complete lack of electoral choices, a party formed of retired Gurkhas led by Ms Lumley, standing for compulsory goat curry & promising to sort out our dumded down chav-culture with judicious use of their kukris would certainly get my unsteady tick in the box. Think of it as casting a protest vote – successive administrations have allowed once Great Britain to be overrun by just about every whinging ethnic minority load of bl**dy wogs with an open hand & a grievance you care to mention. However when it comes to those who have done nothing but loyally serve Her Majesty, the Westminster pondlife treat them with nothing but utter distain.
I have been keeping my own personal odds sheet on whether Obama is the anti-christ. It started out after the election at 50%. I didn't think he was smart enough to be the anti-christ plus he was rope-a-dopeing us with moderate statements before he was sworn in. Slowly, after being sworn in, his anti-christ index rose as he revealed his true intentions. Now, with him threatening to expose Israel's nuclear secrets, his index is up to 70%. My wife has him up to 75%.
Extremist right wing loonies march school choice. ??????
The video they put out featured an African American mother and daughter who supported Obama for president and feel crushed that his children go to private school with government funds, yet his neighbors are not afforded the privelege. Hope?
Obama is beholden to the teacher's unions and NEA.
The Obama Plan to destroy private banking. My Dad was the Exec. VP of the second largest bank in Wisconsin and I know what he'd be saying about this unprecedented interference in banking -- "Keep your cotton-pickin' hands off our bank." And then the Obama militia would come and arrest him for -- you guessed it -- raaacism! Oh, the shame of it.
