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.
Is Science all it's cracked up to be? Be careful. John at P'line. Scientists play games, too...political ones. Shame on them.
Speciesism. This used to be a joke. Well, still is, really - even for those who love animals, whether alive in the woods or steaming on the stove. A major and fascinating piece on the subject by Appleton at Spiked.
Is the true purpose of the EU to bring Socialist Totalitarianism? Could be. They certainly seem to want to control everything, including whether you cut your toenails straight or on a curve.
A fresh and objective look at Jacques Derrida, the enfant terrible of the complacent. What about his relationship with God? Caputo at Crosscurrents.
Los Angelinos freak out when it rains. Good grief. No wonder they are such babies out there. Hey, Southern Californians - skin is waterproof.
Mindless cant on assimilation of Moslems, covered by Driscoll
If you think politics and religion don't mix - try politics and government medicine. Canadian hospital bans more hip replacements - too efficient?!?!?!
The Left always blames the victims. So says Prager. What did we evil ones do to piss them off? If something pisses me off, how come I don't receive the same consideration? I guess it's complicated...
