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.
On the same day that the NYT refused to publish the famous cartoons due to sensitivity, they printed a photo of "Dung Mary". Well, slap me with a mackeral, as Mr. Free Market would say - how dumb can they be? Conspiracy. Yes, I am deeply offended by both Dung Mary and by their hypocrisy and hatred of America. I insist that they cease publication as of today to avoid further offense to me and my friends and family. Let's plan a mass protest march like the Moslems are doing...no, that would be cruel to kick 'em when they're down. They could be headed to jail anyway for revealing defense secrets.
Will the wedge issues for 2006 be terrorist wiretapping and illegal immigration? If so, I think Repubs win. Am. Prosect.
