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.
You can’t make this stuff up, folks. That’s right: The people of Michigan, according to this court, violated the Equal Protection Clause when they demanded that their state treat all citizens equally—without regard to race, ethnicity, or sex—in government contracting, employment, and education, including university admissions. Unbelievable.
You know, Channel 38, WSBK in Boston used to have a Saturday Midnight show called Gore-a-thon where they showed horror movies until 5 AM - they could get away with that in the old days of analog TV signals and lousy UHF reception.
The First Commercial Jetpack is not a flying car - it's the 21st Century dammit and I want my flying car!!!
Europe Slips As Greece Falls The dirty little secret is that the Euro never truly existed in the first place. European politicians were envious of the dollar and wanted to make the European equivalent of the dollar. What they didn't understand is that the US is ONE country - Europe is 24 or so countries each with their own national pride and identity. The only common thread between them was the monetary unit which was supported by the economic powerhouse called Germany. And the German citizens have had enough. Merkel can't do this on her own and probably won't - good bye Euro. What that will do to the rest of the world will be very interesting.
