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.
Romney sat for an interview with Brian Williams yesterday and Williams garbled the warm-up to a question about Romney’s running mate. “I know how much you love quoting unnamed Romney advisers,” Williams said, then cited a source close to the campaign who said Romney is looking for a “boring white guy.” Romney responded to Williams:“You told me you were not available.”
Over the transom:
At a high school in North Dakota, a group of boy students played a prank.They let three goats loose inside the school.But before turning them loose, they painted numbers on the sides of the goats: 1, 2 and 4.
School Administrators spent most of the day looking for No. 3. And you thought there was nothing to do in North Dakota.
Ask Mr. Kessler if it will be ok to arrest/prosecute a Jewish guy involved in Wall Street corruption? The only one so far is Madoff and he was not head of a corporate effort, only his family's. How about the guy in charge at some of the big derivative trading companies? After all it is back to tribes isn't it--no "system of law".
Another good farming rap/hip hop [whatever] song is I'm Farming and I Grow It. I am told it is a parody of LMFAO's "I'm Sexy and I Know It." Like a good Wierd Al Yankovic lyric, you don't have to know the original song to appreciate the parody. The parody is funny in its own right without knowing the song it parodies.
