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.
What I want to know is why Border Collies never win the Herding Group category. Or Australian Cattle Dogs. It's always a German Shepard that wins which haven't been used as herders since - well forever.
I think its discrimination against dogs that are black and white. :>)
Just like when you oppose any EPA rule, and they scream "You don't like clean water and bunnies", when someone stand up to this sick sex manual a government media stooge will say "so you want gay men to die?"
Folks, we have gone around the bend. It's things like this that make me think it's all over. How much more obvious could it be that there is a majority in this country that believes everything they are told, and will violently oppose any intrusion into the sick symbiosis of Government/mind-slave?
These are the people that will gladly phone up and report you for being angry, having guns, saying the word "constitution", storing food, or otherwise taking care of yourself. You cannot say to them "the emperor has no clothes" without coming up with hate charges for your slander on gay emperors.
All that the government does must be supported, 100%. It's a mental illness and half of us have it, but that half are what tyrants call "useful idiots", and the tyrants have the drones and jails.
The occupiers, waving anarchy flags, demanding totalitarian government solutions, mental illness on parade... this will be one of the pamphlets they hand you at the re-education center nearest you.
AND, the German Shepherd that won Best of Group was nearly lame--if you watch the videos carefully you will see the left rear leg is off. I once had a pedigree dog of great breeding. I searched for nearly 1.5 years looking for the best breeder with the best bitch, etc. What I got was a truly handsome dog very close to perfect. I tried showing for a little while and what I quickly learned was this: 1st place goes to politics. 2nd and 3rd place goes to the best of breed!
Have you seen this? You walk your dog and you don't pick up? In the ultra socialist Seattle your doggie's poo will be examined for DNA and you will be found and fined ! Probably not as much as all the government salaries involved, but oh well. Check this out:
I had a discussion with some folks on the Left. They said that the tax deduction for charitable giving should be entirely discontinued. Their reasoning was that the government is in much better position to know what charities are deserving for support and which are not than individuals are. My viewpoint that people as individuals have more right to make that judgement and decision with the money they have earned was met with derision.
