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.
Being a curious sort of cat, I wanted to read about the exercise-induced orgasms (I think orgasms are cool and all, but want to avoid doing anything that might cause an orgasm to sneak up on me while I am exercising, as they can be messy). But when I go to that page I get this message: The site ahead contains malware

For forty years now the liberal/democrat crowd have controlled our universities and school system. That is common knowledge. However, what is not yet clear is how deep, how extensive their network of "chosen ones" has become. These are kids, who in high school were specifically chosen to attend "camp". Mostly about environmental preservation, or about working for the peace corps. How to be good "leaders". By the time these "chosen ones" graduate from high school their university career is guaranteed and mostly paid for by pre arranged scholarships. Some classes they attend even in public institutions are classes designated for "specific students". After graduation from university they first get elected to city councils,then state, then federal positions. They also are frequently given jobs at universities for which there is no "real" open search for best qualified candidates--just the chosen ones put into place. Conservative/republicans do not have such a network.
This is a well known model. Used in Sweden, Norway, China, etc. In fact that mass murder of students on an island in Norway was done at one of these "young leaders" camps. The democrats are heavily engaged in this process.
If this were a Republican administration, every reporter in Washington would be on the story
But it isn't. So rather than "the stunning news story of the year" it is a blip than will cause nary a ripple on the Chinese made large screen TV's of the proles.
Boston Globe endorses (R) Baker. Now That's! a story. However, surfing the channels last night I listened to the local PBS station briefly and got informed that Martha Coakly (onscreen jabbing her finger at the camera) is pulling away, got momentum! While a rotund chorus of union supporters behind her slapped their porcine hands together dutifully.
There isn't much of the type of voter fraud we see in other states here in Massachusetts. Not because the Dems in MA are so honest but because there is rarely any need. The media operates as a arm of the progressive party at all times, even the so-called Fox channel here is a leftist lap dog. I mean Fox_25 moved their studio to Beacon Hill, across the street from the State House!? Meaning that when they do their "Man/Woman/whatever" on the street interviews it's with the loonies and moonbeams that live in the most liberal ward in the People's Republic. John (I don't have to put on a fright mask for Halloween) Kerry has his house two blocks away! Charlie Baker has blown every election he's been in in this state so far, maybe he'll succeed this time, maybe. But he's no Mitt Romney and the state legislature is more solidly Democrat then when Mitt was Governor so I don't know what he thinks he will accomplish. At most he will appoint a few less mental incompetents, but no true conservatives. Conservatives cannot get confirmed. Cannot!
Wonder how bad the mean girls will claw Attkisson and/or when her obvious paranoia leads to her hospitalization. Everyone knows the current Administration strongly supports transparency and freedom from government spying.
Special Ops troops wearing down and accumulating bureaucracy? Sounds like a recipe for another Operation Eagle Claw.
Why is virginity so hard to understand, simple, controlling your genitalia is a foreign idea to many.
