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.
The Magnitude of the Mess We're In - The next Treasury secretary will confront problems so daunting that even Alexander Hamilton would have trouble preserving the full faith and credit of the United States
Does the State Department not know, for instance, that manufacturing pretexts for religious outrage is Lesson One in the Mideast lexicon of foreign-policy stratagems? The most obscene cartoons of Mohammed that provoked riots throughout the Middle East were actually added by the Muslim clerics who toured the region brandishing them; the Imam who accused a 14-year-old Christian girl of blasphemy has now himself been arrested for disfiguring the Koran and telling co-conspirators that this was the way to drive Christians from Pakistan. This kind of thing has been happening for centuries, but it happens more when both conspirators and rioters are unafraid of any consequences to themselves.
"EPA Honors Noted Environmentalist Che Guevara": Well, of course they do. He reduced the carbon footprints of thousands of people, likely tens of thousands, possibly even hundreds of thousands! What's not to like?
"Raging at ‘Muslim Rage’ - Left responds to critique of radical Islam with outrage": Woooooowwwww. NEWSWEAK has done it again. Not one, but two swallows that don't make a spring, but one does wonder what's going on over there.
Yes, it is interesting, especially since the WaPo, wanting to sell to a lib, had turned down a conservative buyer for Newsweek. Will the WaPo sue for breach of contract? Since the WaPo sold Newsweek for the grand sum of $1, I have the answer to my question.
I wonder what effect these two heretic articles and covers from Newsweek will have on its sales and on its ad revenue.[The other example of heresy from Lib dogma suggested that Obama should not be re-elected.]
