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.

Female Viagra fails
From Shiver at Pajamas:
Is he? I did think this quote from his speech was strange, when he spoke of "our determination to fight for the America we want for our children ... even if we're unsure exactly what that looks like."

Did you wonder, as I did, who Mead was and what he does?

Curious, ladies takin' flibanserin return where dey were ta begin with; global desirousness accompanied by anxiety, dizziness, insomnia and nausea.
Brings to mind converstion with me frozen foods stocker this am.
I asked what item he stocked was billed as better than hamburger.
Him replied, "That's a vegetarian."
He'd just stocked the open cooler with vegie burger.
"Have ya ever eatin' vegetarian, Papa?" he askis.
"Yes," me replied, "but critter was bland and niether tender nor tasty."
Women don't need Viagra; they just need a little encouragement. Tell them you love them, tell them they're pretty, compliment their cooking. Coming to bed showered up helps. Buy your wife a little nightie -- something a little sexy but comfortable enough to sleep in and that doesn't make her feel like a porn star -- and you're good to go.
@Big Governments Dream Come True
It seems that the environmental left has developed their own Cloward-Piven strategy for the destruction of the energy sector of our economy. They simply impose ever increasing and harder to implement standards until the industry becomes unviable. Pathetic
I couldn't find the "Shiver" column that the first link is to...can anyone tell me which one it is on the pajamas page? Thanks.
Apropos of the latest government foolishness, Drudge reports that Hillary states that the Feds are going to sue Arizona for its 'controlling illegal immigration' law [can't remember the official number. Don't you find that interesting, given the fact that the Feds already have a law on the books since last century that is virtually identical to the new Arizona state statute? Except the Arizona legislation is more carefully crafted than the Federal law to prevent any harassment of folks suspected of being illegals. They have to be breaking the law first before they will be questioned on their citizenship.
Isn't this sort of like trying to kick oneself in the butt? I suspect that the suit is intended to deflect the nation's attention from the Administration's pitiful flailing about in the Gulf of Mexico.
If I see one more un-Presidential photo of Barry squatting on the sand picking up tarballs, I shall barf. Even Hugo Chavez has more sense than to be photographed squatting anywhere. For any reason. Sheesh.
Then I'll think you'll enjoy this, Marianne:
"[W]hat has defined us as a nation since our founding is our capacity to shape our destiny – our determination to fight for the America we want for our children, even if we’re unsure exactly what that looks like,” Obama said. “Even if we don’t yet know precisely how to get there. We know we’ll get there.”
My, my how yall have blossomed identifying Mudboy, the silver tongued devil.

Yall go girl!
I guess 'cause I'm a retired foreign policy guy, I know who Walter Russell Mead is. He is, to put it bluntly, the dean of U.S. foreign policy historians. He has written two must read books. The first is "Special Providence: American Foreign Policy and How It Changed The World." His latest is "God and Gold," which is useful history of the development of global capitalism. His observations are always worth paying your attention.
I've despised him as long as anyone; I just think it's beneath me to use White Supremacist jargon. I don't even like reading it, and will object every time I see it.
When we deny meaning we saw off the limb we're sitting on?
Then yall sittin' hard on terra firma a lil' wors' fer wear, sissy.
I don't despise him but then me ain't a thin-skinned jenny, either.
I seen el presidente Mudboy fer the liar he is, yes a silver-tongued devil from the first time I saw him speak, though it were on TV.
Yall do amuse casting spite upon and demonizing mulatto who cain't be blamed fer his momma's whoredom but holdin' yerself better than white folks.
Yall go girl.
Thanks, Texan99, for the giggle. A post turtle, eh...
