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.
Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies. You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if you did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that prove?
Deeply disturbing. Nuclear monitoring done without warrants. How absolutely awful. How dare this dictatorship of Bush look for our private, personal nuclear weapons? This is a privacy matter. Let's get the ACLU on the case here.
Truly deeply disturbing. Amex played games with currencies. That is a no-no and we are supposed to be able to trust Amex.
Scruton on the EU: Voting doesn't matter if if doesn't fit the leftist agenda. Open Democracy
Bin Ladin's neice: A cutie-pie. Those arabs have BIG families, don't they? 20 wives - and each one with a Platinum American Express Card. Jeez. And every kid in private school in the US, the UK, or Switzerland. Oil is good stuff. Too bad we can't find any in New England or Virginia. I could handle one lousy well in the basement of my condo.
Americans growing in wealth and standard of living: Cafe Hayek. No kidding. It is obvious everywhere you go. The poorest in the US have cell phones and multiple TVs. The middle class is filthy rich, by world standards, and our bus drivers retire at 55 and spend their winters in Florida. What a country!
The Google Deal. They bought the names. Long term, I would be short Google.
American girls torture Christmas Barbies. Haha. And they should - a wholesome outlet, and good practice for us evil, evil Americans for when we catch the dastardly Moslem terrorists. Put goop in their hair, make them listen to Eminem, and cut their heads off. Good clean fun. Marginal Rev.
Indeed, it is now science that strains our credulity. Relativity and quantum mechanics were preposterous enough but we are now asked to swallow absurdities like black holes, wormholes, and superstrings that would make Baron Munchausen blush. Compared to these, belief in the Virgin Birth is easy.
