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.
Big Vote in Iraq today. What a beautiful thing to see. What an irony that politics is so dirty and nasty, while voting is such a fine expression of human dignity. Their turnout will be better than ours. Michelle has updated details - she has the time. This is what "Victory" looks like: it must warm the hearts of all of the nations who participated in bringing freedom to a very sad place.
94% of Americans believe there is a God. Ex-Donk. So sorry, Marxists, Leftists, and the ACLU - the more you confront people and make them think, the more they find their beliefs in their hearts and souls.
Chicago to ban retired police officers from carrying handguns. WTF? Aren't those the good guys (and gals) we want carrying guns? Alphecca
Fooled ya! After all those years of eating bland, disgusting fiber, turns out it doesn't matter for cancer. It probably was all a plot of evil Big Fiber.
Why did the NYT go with the forged ballots story? Conf. Yank. And Michelle asks "Which side is the NYT on?"
Is secret US diplomacy bringing Sunnis on board in Iraq? Hope so - and it is clear today that something has changed. Debka
Canada has second-largest oil deposits in the world. Make Alberta the 51st state? The Prof. A really neat idea: occupy Alberta. Send in the Marines. It's all about oil, right?
DNA says North America originally settled by only 70 Asians? Gee whiz, and they talk about inbreeding in Appalachia! No wonder we Indians didn't have wheels and guns and philosophy and Botticelli and like, you know, stuff.
Good idea about Alberta. Prove the Lefties correct - lets move in the marines and grab the oil while Canada has no army. It's ours, for the taking! They are multicultural up there, are they not? They will "understand" our cultural needs.
