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.

The fix was in for Richardson.Holder needs fixing, and quick, before he kills justice again. -- What’s more, at PowerLine, why he isn’t canned:“It's not that Obama is deferential to the office of Attorney General; it's because Obama agrees with Holder and disagrees with those charged with defending our country from attack.”
Tigerhawk informs us:Bored while shopping with the old ball and chain? If you know where to look and what to do, there is fun to be had everywhere!
If your company is deemed “critical,” a new set of regulations kick in involving who you can hire, what information you must disclose, and when the government would exercise control over your computers or network.
The Paris-based legal-aid group Lawyers of the World, meanwhile, is representing more than 40 piracy detainees handed over to Kenya for prosecution, insisting that their rights are being violated by deficiencies in Kenyan law. Fighting piracy is turning into a series of bureaucratic opportunities for attorneys and alliance staffs. It is also providing the pretext for Russia and Iran to establish a maritime presence in this crucial region. Yet piracy continues to flourish undaunted. Something is wrong with this picture.
Nothing wrong with this picture.Now, that’s treasure.
See ya matey, when I return to deck from counting the booty.
