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.
Tangentially related to all the political Obama socialist talk in the links, I'd like to offer this from Mike Rowe - an open letter to Mitt Romney.
It is directly related to everything we've been discussing here from education to jobs to...well, everything.
I met Mike Rowe at a charity event that I was involved with a few years back. This is one of the most down to earth, friendly, intelligent and just plain folks celebrity you will ever find - an absolute delight to talk to. A genuine character in a world full of phonies.
the link to Gateway on Obama crew's part in the 2008 crisis that Obama crew is using to nullify his presidential record reminds me of an old New Yorker toon where this thug is testifying in the witness box in a courtroom. He's anwering a question from a lawyer, he's saying,
yes, I took aim and pulled the trigger, and then, suddenly, a shot rang out.
And here's a 30-second youtube for you to send your you-know-whos:
Hey Barrister, BD, et al: Have you found any group, organization, or law office defending those who blow the whistle on schools, or other liberal groups, or administrations? Sure would be nice if folks on your side would understand how destructive it is for you not to provide similar protection services that liberals have when they "blow the whistle". Look forward to you posting a link to such a group.
It is very clear from the last two days that what is going on is a spiritual battle for the future of the country, not a political one. Watching the DNC convention made me more concerned about the future of this country than I have ever been. I felt like I had been transported back to Germany in the early 1930s. Hearing God and Jerusalem being repeatedly shouted down and booed (like in the Gospels, 3 times no less) was very apocalyptic and the low point of a disturbing presentation of our future. These people are very, very scary.
Well, if Obama wins reelection, we should all be thinking about what we can do to help make this country ungovernable. Completely ungovernable. Grass-roots noncompliance. With everything his administration wants to do.
It may be the only thing that can save us, in the long term.
