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.
Push-polling against Roberts - someone is paying someone plenty of $ to do this. Volokh. Truly a filthy maneuver, unworthy.
Two straight guys marry in Canada: hahahahaha. They get a tax break. SDA
The Decision to drop the Bomb on Japan: from Gen. Tibbets, here
Islam is a cult of death: Auster seems to have reached his limit of modern tolerance, here.
Tony Blair is "growing in the job:"
"We're angry about them abusing our good nature and our toleration," Blair said. "Coming to Britain is not a right. And even when people have come here, staying here carries with it a duty. That duty is to share and support the values that sustain the British way of life."
Ummm, what about fox-hunting, Tony? Anyway, as a consequence, Brit Islamists accuse him of being Hitler- Jihad Watch. and Dhimmi Watch. And, by the way, Jihad Watch has become a 501-c3. There's an idea.
The NYT has gone over the edge. As if attacking Mrs. Robert's dress wasn't enough, now they have gone after the Roberts kids. This is why I quit my subscription. Are they biased, or a Fifth Column? (Thanks, Atlas.) Watch Shape of Days lose it at the NYT, here. X-rated. And Captain Ed finds yet more propaganda in the Gray, I mean Red Lady.
The Sudan: All you need to know - here. Not ready for tourism.
Sailboat math. Great site. The winners know all of this stuff. Plus a "feel for the sea," which you have to be born with.
The NCAA vs. the Indians. What PC idiots. Don't they realize that sports teams are the only compliments Indians get? Who wouldn't want their ethnic group to name sports teams? It's a compliment - sports are good things, with very positive connotations. We've have had enough of the sanctimonious scolds who never seem to be part of the so-called "victim" group anyway. Who are these jerks? Ridiculous. See our resident Redskin Bird Dog's post below on the subject, last week. He loves Redskins and Braves and Squaws and Hatchets etc.
One Hell of a Stock...here. Opie got some...did you? She sold hers already. Will give you her next tip in advance - promise. We owe our loyal readers something. Will $ suffice?
Flirting will no longer get you a raise. Here. What a shame. The world is going to hell in a handbasket.
A very bad, very nasty movie. Do not look. Samizdata has details.
Gun-hating jerks. How many logical errors can you find in this piece?
