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.
Horrors! I was taken aback by my own thoughts. How could I be so cruel? What evil right-wing influence was making me think this way?
I went through a similar transformation years ago. I am heartened to see that some are still capable of real "critical thinking." Perhaps all Liberals are not hopelessly committed Communists. My main take-home from the pics, however, is that these are not well-indoctrinated ideologues - they are just greedy for my money.
There is no end-point to the Leftist's desire for the fruits of my labor. It is always "more."
It always amazes me how people do not recognize how inter- connected and dependent the world is. Too many people do not understand the basics of civilized living and what it takes to have those services of water, sewer, garbage, lights, communications and transportation. (Modern Central sanitation is less than 150 years old.) How do they think their food got to the grocery store? They don't think what their life would be like if they got their political wishes and corporations disappeared. They would be serf working for the Lord in the local castle.
I saw a little of that footage from the Wisconsin fiasco, and I could swear that I saw her with a bullhorn, exhorting the crowd. She seemed to be dressed differently then, though. And when I saw her in this pic, I thought "geez, if she really cared about the environment, she wouldn't be shaving those armpits. How much bigger is her carbon footprint because of that.
But then again, if she had bushy pits, I would likely make fun of her for that, too. So I got nothin on this, really.
Was involved in a discussion with a hard left liberal the other night that continued on an e-mail exchange.
Her words were that EXCLUDING FACTS AND FIGURES, the republicans were abysmal on creating jobs. Obama's intentions are wonderful and those opposing his agenda are racists. She is in her late 60's living in MA....her mind will not be opened, but she will vote in the next potus election. God help the USA.
