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.

Interesting set of links - reflects the crazy times we live in.
Feminists engaged in gender warfare politics, while ignoring the threat Islam represents to all they hold dear. Muslims getting ready to take over Europe within a generation - while the left and the media politely ignore it all. Instead we fight over the ridiculous idea of free healthcare and whether or not to tax the country into a depression.
Too bad "The Mosque of Notre Dame 2042" isn't available in English. I did enjoy "Caliphate" by Tom Kratman which is set in Europe 100 years in the future.
Islam in France, while not fun to watch, is informative and brings to mind el presidente's sentiment toward his Muhammmadan brethren which he expressed in Albuquerque two days ago; "their own path to grace is one that we have to revere and respect as much as our own."
Well now huckel barry, i ain't buying your fabricarted Christianity today, but i do think any path to grace which leads to the eternal fires of hell, Islam in France as shown in video, ain't to be respected nor revered.
