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.
More of these fun satirical pics here. (h/t Insty)
If Obama believes that anybody who achieves their dreams (very few of us ever do) did it by cheating or luck, does that apply to him too?
By hook or by crook, I achieved one of my dreams by constructing a website that Marianne reads.
Perhaps the implied message is that, if you are disappointed in life (and who is not, in some ways?), it's not your fault. And, of course, it often is not because Reality is a bitch and we are not perfect either.
There is something rather strange going on here, Mr. Jones, but it seems about half the country is OK with it.
Good one BD. I came across that site just a few minutes ago and was going to post a link but you beat me to it. The picture you show, the last one in the full list, is the only TRUE one of the bunch. Obama did not deserve a Nobel Peace Prize for a second. Indeed, one might even ask whether President Mass Murderer deserves to be prosecuted for high crimes against humanity, given the illegal drone attacks he's launched against other countries.
One of the commenters to the original post, Tom of the Missouri, posted a link to an interesting essay that's on point,
I recommend it for those who, along with President Freeloader, discount the wondrous effects of the voluntary cooperation between people who, through their inspiration and personal energy, have over time built this nation. We recognize the important achievements of those who came before us; thankfully we are not obliged to reinvent what they gave us. For that they deserve the reward of fame and fortune, neither of which should be claimed by a President or government that deserves no such credit.
Sure, it's been all fun and games. But there is a dark side here. As the government is the root of all success, so it is the killer of much more. And this has sparked memories, let us read their stories of government "help." The government man is more likely to be the angel of death to a small business than the secret of their success.
You see, Bird Dog, yours is one of the best websites that I can find on the Internet. Which is why I check back with you at least twice a day. Not only is it always entertaining, but you have a very high quality of commenters who agree with me. JKB's comment above, that the "government man is more likely to be the angel of death to a small business than the secret of their success," is a perfect example.
