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.
Also, AIG's fate, humanity, Rangel's chairmanship, the Trading Emissions Merger Plan, Google's digital book future, Jamestown, the food supply, Lebanon's Cedar Revolution, home copying of DVDs, Women's WMA, Troy's School #2, Clinton's fate, tort reform, Aaron Ramsey's career, Brazil custody battle, the Himalyan ski project, the future of Honduras and Pakistan, gay marriage, Jeleva, a life, consistency, and all of pop culture.
And that's just Google's first first few pages!
Worse, according to my scientific research (I did a Google search for "doesn't hang in the balance"), it turns out that more things in life are hanging by a balance than aren't!
Be as political or partisan as you please. On not.
No Justice, No Peace, No Balance! Or is that New Balance? Idunno. I quit.
All I want is for someone (other than me) to get that danged branch out of that danged tree before it is no longer hanging in the balance. That seems only just to me. It would also be economical if it happened in a controlled and directed fashion on some predetermined schedule (Of course she may use my ladder, Larson, provided she dig it out of, and replace it into, the sched).
If it falls on My Bride's auto there'll be no Social Justice, I can tell ya' that. The very existence of the thing and the inevitability of the destruction will be my crime rather than some unfortunate act of nature. It will be "Penalty first, trial later!"
No justice for me. Where's the balance? Looks more like a tipping point.
