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.

Bitchy Virgin is now closed, and a darn nesting Peregrine Falcon plus rockfalls have closed off some of my weekend climbing warm-ups in the Gunks. I do not do serious technical climbing, but I like to know how to handle gnarly rocks. I am headed for Banff (photo above) this week to catch some mountain air, then down to Maine 'til Labor Day. Will post when and if I have time on a machine, and will pre-post a few time-insensitive items if I have the chance. NYC is wonderful in the summertime - especially during this cool summer - but I need to hit the road and put some adventure under my belt while I have the chance, while I am still single and free. One of these days some adorable sexy little cutie is going to catch me in her web. I know my weaknesses, and I know I will play along with it if she is from a nice family, because having a partner is a good thing. Not having one is pretty good, too.
Here are a few important links:
Some gay guys' ideas of what Harvard students wear. I thought it was satire at first.
The O's obese Surgeon General nominee advises Burger King for $. On nutrition! Haha. The Dems crack me up. Burger King isn't the worst of the burger chains, though.
GOP thinks Victory in 2010. My only concern is that it will be too late.
Note to Editor: Pls put Fabius Maximus on our Mostly Political blogroll.
Shootout in Harlem. Speedy justice.
Ugly dirt on Rahm Emanuel. Sheesh. The Dems crack me up. Their greed for money and power knows no bounds. Every Lefty I know is either filthy rich, or a born whiner with a serious case of ingratitude and/or entitlement.
Is Hillary back to being First Lady again? Althouse
"Bye bye ACORN. Don't come back. Get a job." Gateway
Sippican went to the doctor's.
Via Lucianne: Obama's Forfeited Credibility Sabotaging Obamacare
Rush: The left's fragile mask of sanity is peeling... Video with good song borrowed from Randy Newman
Did the Prez realise what he was saying when he said ďI mean, if you think about it, UPS and FedEx are doing just fine, right? No, they are. Itís the post office thatís always having problems.Ē
It's a disease. Climate changist:
Indeed. Freakin' nuts. Keep it up, Mr. Morano.
Wish I had written about the Genie. From Am Thinker, which begins:
Related, at NRO:
Let's hope so. There are plenty of good reforms which do not involve government power grabs.
Too many fun posts at Moonbattery for me to link separately.
Jammie on New York pols:
Quoted at Rick Moran:
Right. Fine with me, as long as politicians do not control my medical choices.

I did not want to hijack your thread but I found a great graph at PFM that explains why there is no tort reform in this bill. http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/files/2009/08/Untitled-Image-1.jpg
By the way what in the nickname for you folks? Maggett's?
"My only concern is that it will be too late."
I have two--that one, and that nobody will put up candidates where it makes any difference.
Republicans in favor of big spend big government are no better than any other big spend big government proponents.
It isn't that they are democrats that is odious, it is that they are anti-freedom.
The Harvard clothing line's prices remind us of the price of a Harvard education: $160 for a shirt, and $195 for a pair of pants. Like they say about a fool and his money....
Brian in Idaho ... I don't know what Maggiesfarmers nickname themselves, but I call them 'Magnets'. They have attractive and incisive thoughts and ideas. Who wouldn't be magnetized by them?
P.S. AS to what Harvard undergrads really wear, I suspect it's pretty much what they always did wear, when I was briefly a student at Radcliffe -- flat-front khaki pants, blue or white dress shirts in summer with the sleeves rolled up, handsome Pendleton wool shirts from the Coop in winter, and a nice Blue Blazer from J.Press for dates, glee club performances or other important appearances. They don't change things much in Cambridge, you know. Except that the professors are becoming ruder to the policemen who are trying to protect their property.
