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.
Wow - gorgeous and very readable no less. Wonder how long took to make it. It's almost a kind of historical Venn Diagram in a different format.

Nothing spells justice like somebody sitting in judgement who has no damn idea what is being said. Kind of like being Governor of CT in which the ability to read and write isn't a prerequisite for the job.
Coming soon to all of us. The Police did this years ago to a farm in GA. The Feds are militarizing the Police forces around the country because the Federal Government in DC is afraid of us. This time in Texas just to prove they have power over Texas too.
One looks for silver linings where one can find them.
This article appeared at Huffing and Pissed. If the lefties are are having problems with SWAT Teams pushing around non-violent citizens, perhaps there is a glimmer of hope that public pressure will be brought to bear to de-militarize police forces?
One wonders if a resident in the house was an active political/ideological opponent of a local or national politician?
The irony of racism in America is that 50 years ago it was a problem and many whites were racist. After 50 years of discussion, persuasion and reason few whites today are racist. The irony is that now most blacks are racist. The reason is simple: the race pimps used racism successfully over those 50 years to enrich themselves and get "free stuff" for their constituency. In order to do this and continue it in the face of declining racism the hype and propaganda had to be ramped up all the time until today it is all racism all the time by the radical left. Everyday a young black hears about racism; past racism trumped up racism and imagined racism (Oprah). By the time a black person is an adult either they truely believe there is racism and thus they are justified to be racist themselves OR they have caught on to the game and are using racism to get more "free stuff" for themselves. Now the question is (should be) how do we stop and reverse black (and other minority) racism?
