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.
...if Republicans continue to be led around by, and live in fear of, a base that denies global warming after Hurricane Sandy and refuses to ban assault weapons after Sandy Hook — a base that would rather see every American’s taxes rise rather than increase taxes on millionaires — the party has no future.

I remember reading about the Radio Flyer car last year..or the year before. Sehr kuhl!
Women--Stupidity and/or perverse incentives at work.
There's a license for hunting, too. Target shooting...no Obviously, that is NECESSARY!
Dems responsible for sub-prime mortages? O Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, TELL me it isn't soooooooooo!
Jim Hoft : New Study Finds Democrats Fully to Blame for Subprime Mortgage Crisis that Caused 2008 Financial Disaster
Um, no. The study found that CRA encouraged risky lending, but not that the CRA caused the Subprime Mortgage Crisis. CRA loans constituted only a small fraction of subprime lending. In addition, the increased risk was primarily due to "unobservable characteristics" as banks attempted to maintain practices "consistent with safe and sound operation".
Daniel Halper: Obama Uses Funeral Service to Talk About Himself
Actually, that's the standard rhetorical device for a eulogy. "I remember when I first met Danny" and then to go on to recount touching memories, things you did together, and explain how he impacted your life.
