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.
re Pennsylvania to Destroy Thousands of Bottles of Wine - Owner violated archaic liquor laws
From the article:
"A Pennsylvania man’s extensive wine collection is on the verge of destruction. The state plans to pour out thousands of bottles of wine, including many rare labels, after a police sting found the owner was selling the wine out of his home.
Pennsylvania is one of only two states where only the state is legally allowed to sell wine to the public,"
Valuable collection? One wonders if Pennsylvania's public servants will find a way to steal the wine under asset forfeiture laws?
Hillary's brazen lies are breath-taking. I know her base was chearing instead of jeering her when she said it. If they believe that tripe then they deserve the mess she would make of America for them. But WE don't deserve it.
Which is also why governments should encourage smokers. They live for most of their productive years and then die shortly before or after retirement. Like everyone else, absent death panels, they may have an expensive final illness but they tend to have them 10 or 20 years sooner.
