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 outrage is that 70% of black kids are born out of wedlock. This lifestyle is the norm, not the exception. And we wonder why FBI statistics show that this 12% of the population are responsible for nearly half of all violent crime. The war on poverty is as lost as the war on drugs or the war on guns. But we'll get frittering trillions away on all these decades long wars.
A woman went in to DFACS to get aid for her children. The lady asked her for their names. "Leroy" she said.
"You just have one boy?"
"No, I gots eight boys"
"What are the rest of their names?"
"Leroy, they all name Leroy, soes when I calls 'em for supper I jus gots to holla LEROY!"
The welfare lady looked bewildered, "Well what if you only want one of them to come?"
Maggie's, you can't touch this subject without being branded as racist. And not only have you touched it, but you have made fun of it. I'm serious. I'd pull this post right now. Too PC? That's the world we live in.
