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.
Was in Arlington, Ma, my old home town for the weekend as usual.
Never saw a Coakley sign, saw some Brown bumper stickers on the way down. Martha/ Marcia is in trouble and she knows it. I don't think the Pres helped her at all. I was listening to all the Boston stations while I was pushing snow. The Brown campaign is organized and energised. The last poll numbers I heard at 3pm was Brown up by 9.
I hope it's right. Would be nice to see if he caught lighting in a bottle. We'll see tomorrow.
I meant to include this in my last post. I found it at Theo's the other day who ever wrote it really has his/her hand on the pulse of America.
" The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency then to restore the necessary common sense and good judgement to a depravved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.
The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us Blaming the prince of fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is after all, merely a fool.
It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president"
Jappy ... Was hoping you would post here. To begin with, I'm really hoping Scott Brown wins the 'people's seat' in Massachusett[e]s. I've been watching with bated breath over the weekend to see if the tide was turning. And it seems to be.
Second, would you please send me your email again? When my computer crashed over Christmas, I lost a lot of my email addresses. Once I get everything restored, I'm going to make a hard copy of everything. And I also installed Carbonite, which my computer guy assures me will make things much easier to restore without losses, if this happens again. Which it probably will.
