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.
I'm mostly white (if you ignore a little American Injun blood), and yet cops keep pulling me over because they are profiling me and my red Lamborghini. Is it my ride, or are they detecting my inner Injun?
A federal wildlife biologist whose observation in 2004 of presumably drowned polar bears in the Arctic helped to galvanize the global warming movement has been placed on administrative leave and is being investigated for scientific misconduct, possibly over the veracity of that article.
So I understand that my country is about to become an insolvent failed state, plunging over the cliff into abject bankruptcy. On the other hand, I just discovered a great video of the Josie and the Pussycats theme song rendered in a mash-up of different musical styles. Fellow Americans, we face great challenges; but we must never lose sight of what made us a great nation.
Closer than you think. You'd think our political class would learn from the PIIGS, and their econ woes. But, nooooooo. Keep spending more than we take in, live within the National means, and tighten the belt like the rest of the citizenry has.
Hubris, thy name is the 61.2sq miles of reclaimed swampland turned into a morass in South MD...
Bird Dog, no wonder you get pulled over, driving a red Lamborghini. Lamborghinis should never be red! Red is a Ferrari color, Lamborghinis are more typically yellow, white, or blue or even a bright green. Undoubtedly the disgusted officers are wondering "who is this clown, and what kind of ner' do well nonsense is he up to?"
THE REAL THREAT TO LIBERTY, DEMOCRACY, AND FREEDOM is the "PLAIN WOMAN" ! Not the real ugly one--not the real pretty one--the vast majority who have just a little something that makes them plain--damn those are the women who should never be allowed to run anything--because they are always looking to see if you notice their "little problem" (bad hair, no chin, narrow eyes, etc.) In the case of Ms. Swinson you can see her problem here! http://joswinson.org.uk/en/
Drinking six to eight cups of water - but they keep saying [i]glasses,[i] not cups, for 1.5 liters or about 1.4 quarts -more like 11 cups. A measured cup is 8 fluid ounxes, 8 per quart. Drink glasses? Usually more in the 10oz size (the beer mug I use for coffee is 20oz) which is about right. But if the Institute of Medicine measure of 13 glasses is used, they might be a "pony" ot liquer size.
The American people have redefined progress to mean 'government spending.' They no longer wish to be prosperous or free, since a free and prosperous people aren't Green, Socialist, Diverse, etc. Of course, GE is moving to China, one bit at a time.
