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.
We oppose racial preferences at Maggie's. We believe that an Asian gal is no less worthy a human than a Hispanic gal - other qualities being equal. But I do understand - race is all about politics. Still, I don't quite get why, if you're half Hispanic (is Hispanic a race?), you're Hispanic. Are you Hispanic if you come from Spain? Or Argentina?
I am middle class and I love to see the rich get richer. That's what they are trying to do. I am not trying to be rich so I have no envy of their accomplishing what I am not attempting. Bless the rich their good fortune; don't despise them for being able to do what you can't.
I'd be pleased to be rich, but I somehow never get around to doing anything about it other than buying Powerball tickets. My money manager pal tells me that most people stop worrying about money when they have $17-20 million. I'd make out OK with half of that if I scrimped on some things.
Yes. Obummer himself chose his racial identity as a black man rather than a mixed race man. The left is reliably on the side of other racists for example, Palestinians, Al Sharpton, Jeremiah Wright, and Louis Farrakhan. They believe that minorities are inferior and therefore need extra help. They think it's fine to have the NAACP, BET, Congressional Black Caucus, etc. but would be in the streets if there was an NAAWP, WET, Congressional White Caucus. They see race in every issue and every criticism of Obummer when they know that if a white man had those policies that the opposition would be the same. They scorn black conservatives as being "Uncle Toms" rather than people who have another view.
Are they Democrats? The party of...slavery, secession, the KKK. Some have always been. It is not Republicans who are keeping the black schools from teaching and black children from learning in black schools.
