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.
Maine is not the only "rural" state to be under assault by the dems. Montana has been under the screws for at least the past 18 months. Multiple rape charges and DOJ investigation into the sexual habits of the football team, etc. New "voting machines" to save money, new mail in ballots to facilitate. Not to mention the many, blacks and hispanics who suddenly have jobs in grocery stores, gays as TV weathermen, etc. Yup--they have arrived and they all came in on the same bus. Funny thing is you can ask them how they got here and what is their "real job" and they will hesitate and have no response--the best answer yet " I really need to think about that" -- ACORN, ACORN, ACORN. AND. CHICAGO, CHICAGO, CHICAGO. Not let's see why the sudden blanketing of MT with outside "agents of change"? How about all that money coming up from the ground in Eastern Montana? Ya think?
Ultimately, Iran (or most any country) can have the bomb if they want it. The only hard part is making the fissle material, which they seem to have largely mastered. It's only a matter of them deciding to make it happen. It's doubtful military action can prevent it, and may actually make it happen sooner.
NEVER FORGET--NEVER FORGET
It was some members of America's Jewish community that first released the information essential to nuclear bomb building to the Chinese. Oh yes, they were so clever--selling the secrets to South Africa so they could then be sold to China. All in an early on misguided effort by the Red Diaper brigade to neutralize all countries by seeing to it that all countries had the bomb.
Let's get things straight: Obama has snubbed Netanyahu in a fit of childish pique, just as he once snubbed Britain's Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Obama knew well in advance that Netanyahu was coming to the US for the opening of the UN General Assembly and could have made time for a meeting with the Israeli leader if he had wanted to. Plain and simple, Obama did not want a meeting. Instead he chose to diss Netanyahu. Make no mistake about it, Obama is intentionally daring the Israelis to attack Iran alone. He probably believes, based on what he's been told by the Joint Chiefs and by US intelligence agencies, that without US help any Israeli move against Iran would be suicidal and therefore Netanyahu will do nothing if challenged. But this could be a serious miscalculation. It is therefore astonishing that a president of the US would take such a huge gamble instead of doing everything within his power to avoid a possible nuclear war in the Middle East. It is like a replay of history leading up to WW I, where those who could have avoided war stood by, doing nothing, only to be overtaken by events.
