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.
My father came from a pretty poor family, grew up in Brighton, MA and jfk (from a much more affluent family)was quite well known as the "moocher" in the community. Never paid his own way and mooched off people less well off then he and his family were. I'd say jfk was your typical liberal, i.e., a pirate in all ways. Don't try to re-cast him, he was what he was.
The fact is that it is progressive fascists who occupy the Schools, News Media and the Democratic Party. They have more in common with the Nazi's, Communists, and Muslims than American Liberals. They seek to destroy our country so they can replace it with a one party state that controls every aspect of society with them in charge. Pretty much like their fellow statists and tyrannies.
Thanks for posting this Barrister. I have for years been saddened by the fact that FIRE would not help us in any way--but, at least this guy I can respect a little. Do you think now they might be willing to help us?
