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.
"Meet the Radicals Creating the New Federal Dietary Guidelines". "Environmentalism creeps into food policy"
This is no suprise. Simply reading about the decisions from the federal governments food bureaucracy would lead you to believe that they were taken over by aliens. Does it makes any sense to let radical on the fringe of life and logic to set food policy for everyone? But then this seems to be how the federal government does everything. Every department seems to be in the clutches of radical fringe elements bent on havng their way with us. Can this get worse? Well, yes in fact it can and it will. The bureaucracy will continue to be made up of those on the fringe of reality and they laws and regulations will continue to make no common sense and be contradictory and counterproductive all to the end of making us crazy and criminal. The nut cases in charge of our national preferred diet are just the tip of the broccoli spear. Why do we elect people who allow this?
You are missing the opportunity. These types make it easier to delegitimize government. The problem is that many want to save the bureaucracy when we should be freezing it an ridiculing it. It was done to theistic religion, why not the worship of the secular god, government.
Yes. I think it is coming. I also believe people with Alzheimer's and the demented will be euthanized as well. It will be a government cost savings measure to help manage the benefits for millions of aged baby boomers.
Once we get past the ethics of killing the elderly, I believe the mentally alert, but needing assistance to live will be next, especially if the heirs want their inheritance and don't want their aging parents to 'waste' 'their' money on end of life care. I have already seen people wishing their invalid parents were dead so they could spend their money.
Sorry, but that writer is off his rocker by listing Wanda Sykes, Whoopi Goldberg, Roseann Barr, Kathy Griffin, and Joy Behar - all of whom are most certainly NOT funny, bitchy yes, funny no - along with some of the greats that he does list as being funny.
And he left the Goddess of Comedy, Lucille Ball, off the list!? Now that is just plain ignorant.
Some are, some aren't, and it depends on the listener/viewer. This woman may be too young to have seen much of Lucy. (If you haven't seen That's Right, You're Wrong, a Kay Keyser movie, you MUST: his 'screen test' with Lucy is a marvel of her physical comedy.)
Homeland Security Monitors Drudge: I should HOPE so. How else are they going to find out what's happening?
The Left vs. Minorities: If the teachers unions really cared, they'd do better by the black schools.
What is Obamacare? Only what he says it is, and that keeps changing. How could it possible work?
Bad weather! We're ALL gonna diiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
