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.
James O'Keefe has become the most effective investigative reporter in history. He has single handedly exposed more corruption and fraud then all the reporters alive today. For that reason I fear for his life. The left will stop him, somehow...
I don't suppose you folks remember that it was the retirement monies from the AFL/CIO that went into Spain to help develop a newly liberated country establish "democracy", "free enterprise", etc. It was the union leadership that sat at the design table to help layout the "new Spain". This was right after Franco died in 1975. Some of us understood back then the ultimate consequences of this relationship. The handwriting was on the wall as they say . . .
the 'communist mentor' essay/book review at the link --pretty astounding. Just a short snip:
But we need go back only one generation to see the influence of card-carrying Communists spread wide. Davis’s close associates included the father-in-law of Valerie Jarrett, and the father of David Axelrod’s mentor. After Davis moved to Chicago in 1934 and began writing for the Associated Negro Press, he met Robert Taylor, maternal grandfather of Valerie Jarrett. (Davis officially joined the Communist Party USA during World War II.) In 1948, he worked with Valerie’s future father-in-law, someone who had been involved in communist activities since at least his election to the Illinois CPUSA youth wing. Davis and Vernon Jarrett worked together on the Packing-House Committee, a communist group.
