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.

A good time to be a jihadist “Obama has already gone a long way towards ensuring that interrogators cannot use any technique that might reasonably be expected to extract information from hardened terrorists.”
Dick Cheney replies to the O and Holder, this “serves as a reminder, if any were needed, of why so many Americans have doubts about this Administration’s ability to be responsible for our nation’s security.” Stand by for the debate between the lawfare smoothies versus those with warfare facts.
$10-billion reasons for unions to bust up townhalls.
Obama, Clinton, Carter – We don’t need any more stooges
Captive nations are unfortunately not a thing of the past.
BTW, Whole Foods’ CEO says he’s rich enough, and just takes a $1-year salary. When will the UFCW union boss be rich enough? Blatt adds: “I wonder whether the grocery store workers Hunsucker (supposedly) represents know how much he makes. I mean, the average grocery store cashier earns $26,479 a year, a stock clerk $28,697.”
Is there a friendly shrink available? I’d like to get a VA disability payment for this proposed liberalization by the VA, noncombat troops being PTSD for being stressed by being afraid of being stressed:
No wonder I don’t hear her when I’m doing anything, including nothing, er thinking.
The U.N. Kicks Off Another Season Of Bedlam. Read it all; really disgusting. A sample:
You can’t buy peace, etc.; it has to be earned. In the 1960’s, some joked we could buy off every North Vietnamese with a villa for less than we spent on the war. In the 1980’s, some joked we could buy weapons that worked from Japan for less and halve the defense budget. In the 1990’s til recently, the federal government actually tried this tack, subsidizing home buying for those who couldn’t afford it. Now, Ed Morrissey shows we can buy health insurance for all those uninsured citizens who actually are needy for under $50-billion, and not overturn what works for everyone else. It’s not a joke, as Instapundit highlights:
Dats all folks!
Dats all folks!

Regarding the "Scopes Monkey Trial" for anthropogenic global warming: considering how some on the AGW-hysteria side have called for trials of individuals who disagree with them, it seems only fair that the concept itself should go on trial with no direct threat to the individuals who advocate for it. If the science and facts are on their side, they should welcome such a public trial by energetic advocates of both sides.
Regarding the Dem-care deficit and costs: the 10-year costs of Medicare and Medicaid turned out to be only the beginning. This would be true of any federal plan and, as Mattatusetts shows, any state plan.
Obama's interpretation of the war on terror as being a war against the CIA has method in its madness...Obama wants to pressure top CIA people out, i.e. those who are loyal to this nation and who prosecuted an effective war against terrorism. He will then change the culture with political appointments and back door hires of those who are friends of Islam and Marxism. The CIA need to hunker down and call this guy's bluff...Don't let the left leaning, islam loving marxist weasel in chief get in your way. Do your job for the country as you have in the past!
