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.
China's economy set to surpass that of Britain. Samiz.
The NSA: The "big" NYT story is unravelling. Am Thinker. Where is the outrage about the NSA leaks? Max Boot (woops- they are Dems - what happens to Senators when they leak top secret intel? Jail, perhaps? I would just love to be running against those guys right now, but my job is better.). It's insanity: Willisms - and I agree.
Christmas defended. Yes, Virginia, the Founding Fathers did celebrate Christmas. And how! With parties, booze, and dancing. They were not barbarians. They did love life, they trusted in God, and they wanted freedom from State Power and viewed government as a necessary evil, and not as a free lunch. God Bless those brave, optimistic patriots who risked their lives and their sacred honor, and who continue to inspire us today.
