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.

Obama’s Kryptonite: Truth
Don’t forget the Roma. Still persecuted or discriminated against today. More info here. Did you know?: “While exact figures or percentages cannot be ascertained, historians estimate that the Germans and their allies killed around 25 percent of all European Roma. Of slightly less than one million Roma believed to have been living in Europe before the war, the Germans and their Axis partners killed up to 220,000.”
Obama breaks 42-years of tradition. “God and Country” not to be honored.
The other Zogby. Islamic terrorism apologist.
Don’t you wish you were at this dinner party?
Every critic is a racist! Fidel Castro says so, so it must be true, right Barack? Fidel is one of the very few foreign leaders who hasn’t laughed in your face yet. Probably doesn’t want to foul up his deal to drill for oil right off
Robot prostitutes. Aren’t Stepford Wives good enough? Just can’t please some men, huh.
Some mother-in-laws can’t take a joke. Take my mother-in-law, for example. Please!
Insulter-In-Chief. And, still working on more.
Pity poor Panetta? Actually, no. He’s Obama’s man, making excuses rather than publicly resigning and confronting the Leftist witch-hunt. “The next time CIA officers are told that they have to be more aggressive in protecting their country, they could be forgiven for saying ‘no thanks.’ “
Sculpture captures spirit of freed POW. -- Notable quote:
The clay model for a sculpture called “Liberation,” made by Richard Becker, will be unveiled Saturday for the local chapter of the American Ex-Prisoners of War. (Sean M. Haffey / Union-Tribune)
DUmmies Hail Inspector Barack Clouseau™
Man arrested for vandalism at Democratic HQ in Denver worked for left-leaning group. Gee, what a surprise, not. Confederate Yankee offers him the Democrat silver lining: “On the bright side, at least he'll have publicly-funded healthcare in jail.” Of course, Michelle Malkin has more.
RIP: Senator Ted Kennedy died last night. As one who grew up with the fabled family, and its tragedies, I watched a far younger Ted thrust into prominence following the assassinations of his older, and wiser, brothers. In his personal and political life, Ted Kennedy had many severe failings. He, also, earned respect from many for being a fighter for what he believed. I disagree with most of his career, but share that respect. There will be much talk in coming days, pro especially as his death is exploited for political purposes to try and resuscitate the dying ObamaCare. For me, for now, I’ll just say RIP to both.

Amazing work, Bruce. Superb relevance with a little 'silly' to make it fun.
Barack Clouseau. TOO funny! Most excellent, good sir. :)
Kennedy has certainly left his imprint (both positive & negative) on our mortal world. Not all the 'faux pas' can be written off as youthful indulgence; there are simply too many.
Much will be said both pro and con in the coming days and weeks. One can only hope that, in the end, the balancing will be a fair assessment of the whole.
Islamic apologists are all the rage, even at Maggie's Another Farm.
Bruce, You are a better man than I. I too grew up with the Kennedy's. Being from the Boston it's hard not to be. He is a despicable man ,no honor ,and no shame.
Hell's population has increased by one today.
The mill's of the God's grind slowly, but they grind exceedingly well. Maryjo is finally resting in peace. I hope the fires of Hell burn this traitor for eternity.
I know this is shameless of me, but it's just the way I'm wired.
BANG ON !! RE: post #2 above...I said the same thing (as a guest and a resident 'n' o' the 49th') but felt I should respond diplomatically to a sensitive issue...not my place y'a know....
Bruce, you have one mis-statement: Bush only had seven budgets. His eighth and final budget never saw the light of day in Congress because Pelosi and the rest of the Dems stonewalled it so Obama could submit one instead.
Even so, you are right that the total of all the deficits in GWB's seven budgets have been exceeded by Obama's first budget.
