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.
Obama was a silver-tongued orator in the campaign, but he lacked a silver bullet in the presidency. He was a darling on the stump, a dud in office. This is not a remarkable view. It is held in the White House itself.
You think he's a fraud? You THINK he's a fraud? The current accupant of the white house has been a fraud his entire political career and before. I look forward to the day when he and his mate slither out of the place and allow some fresh air to fill the void. He is not only a fraud, he's an incompetent fraud.
Does Obama want to take over other industries? Is the blessed Holy Father Catholic? Of course he does. He's channeling his inner Mussolini. Pay attention: with Romney's announcement of Ryan as his VP running mate, the Obama campaign has dropped the mask and revealed its campaign theme of Jealousy and Envy. There's been a change in the tenor of Obama's stump speeches over the last two days. No more closet Fascist. It's right out there in the open for everyone to see. "If you want the free ride to continue, you'll vote for me." Obama, our own Il Duce wannabe, bought the 2008 election with the help of illegal foreign campaign donations. This time he intends to buy it with the taxpayers own money.
