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.
I've always liked Elvis but became a real fan after visiting the birthplace museum in Tupelo, MS. It's an awe inspiring feeling to walk into that tiny two room shack and realise how much he acheived in his very short life. The only furniture in the house was a bed, a small chair, table and stove. I asked the tour guide where Elvis slept, she said with his Mother and Dad. I perused the guest book in the lobby of the museum and noticed that within a two day period people from every continent, with the exception of Antartica, came to visit. Last year I visited Graceland for the first time after living in Memphis all my adult life. When I stepped into the trophy room a spontaneous WOW came out of my mouth. You have to see it to believe it.
And to think, Elvis thought no one would remember him after he was gone.
The Democrat death spiral is in fact the Cloward-Pevin plan to crash the system so that it can be replaced with a Marxist/socialist system. Honestly a few years ago I would have thought it to be impossible. Why would any nation willing follow their leaders over the cliff? But after Obama's election and watching the results of his policies I began to worry and with his reelection (under a cloud of massive voter fraud) I am stunned. We have willingly choosen the Keynesian/Kenyan to lead us in a rush to jump off the cliff. Will congress fix the upcoming fiscal cliff??? Bwahahaha! If that is what you believe then you are part of the problem. This is all window dressing to take your eye off the sleight of hand. Don't march on Washington demanding a recount and a investigation into the voter fraud thaqt installed this Manchurian cnadidate but watch over here as we "save the world". If you let them get away with this voter fraud then you deserve what is coming next. NOW is the time to rally. If you wait the evidence will disappear, the trail will grow cold and the outrage will subside into just trying to survive the coming crash. Call a Republican congressman and insist they grow some balls and investigate. You were duped and now you are about to lose everything. Do not go gentle into that good night!!

That ain't all! I've been reading some reports lately that many folks are really ticked off at Goldman Sachs because they prepared for the storm while others did not - Goldman Sachs HQ stayed powered (by their own generators) while nearby hospitals went black. They stayed dry because they sandbagged their building; while others nearby flooded.
And guess who everyone is blaming?
Yep, Goldman Sachs - "how dare they have power while the rest of us suffer."
