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.
Democratic candidates across the country are opening a fierce offensive of negative advertisements against Republicans, using lawsuits, tax filings, reports from the Better Business Bureau and even divorce proceedings to try to discredit their opponents and save their Congressional majority.
As as health insurance for young adults here New York state good luck finding anything under $300.00 per month although if you are in college most of them offer some kind of plan that's less expensive.
Hillary has hardly covered herself with glory since she became Secretary of State. Early on, she and Mr. Obama went off on the wrong side of the Manuel Zelaya thing in Colombia, coming down on the side of Zelaya, who was trying to make an end run around their country's Constitution, which explicitly forbids a President from serving more than one term. Their Supreme Court upheld their Constitution [naturally] and removed Mr. Zelaya from office. So Ms. Hillary proceeded to describe this as "a political coup." To see how ridiculous this is, just shift the action to the U.S., another country run as a constitutional democracy. If our President should decide to serve three terms instead of the two legally allowed here, I should hope our Supreme Court would remove him unless and until our Congress would repeal the present law mandating a limit of two terms as President.
That was no "political coup" in Colombia, Hillary. That was a constitutionally sanctioned action. It's time you figured out the difference.
