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.

Landfill named for Obama- Daily Currant is a satire site I believe. I'm pretty sure this was fiction.
Private oncologists getting squeezed out, surely the unintended result of intentions are pure government regulators. I mean how were they to know people act to maximize profit by finding loopholes.
Ferguson, releasing the cop's home address was a move that esteemed attorney, Mr Lynch would approve.
Turnabout is fair play,,,isn't it?
This idea has legs, I saw it on Day by Day, then GotNews, I decided to link to GN on my site and the next site I visited (American Digest) was on it.
Any question on your mind about WHY the progressives want "Net Neutrality"? Their definition of "neutrality" would differ from ours as much as their definition of "fair" does.
Galloping towards Gomorrah? IMO we are already there.

From my years of attendance at SF cons, and occasionally being in rooms with people discussing how to have sex with their pets, I’d say to "Is it now OK to have sex with animals?"
No, you misunderstood.
They meant they intended to copulate with their significant other while they were "in costume" as a wookie or a lion girl.
And that's the Dragon Queen, not a drag queen.
"Justice for Michael Brown"
Ironically Mr Brown got justice. Mr Brown got what he deserved. I don't know if he was really as stupid as his actions paint him or perhaps it was the drugs but he should have stuck to bullying and robbing people who do not carry a gun. It is likely that there is in fact a silver lining to this story because Mr Brown was probably going to commit murder of some innocent individual down the road. He precipitated his death and probably saved a life that he would have taken in his life of crime.
Obama is bent on destruction rather than creation.
The underlying emotions of leftists are hatred and rage. Of course they want to destroy.

Re. foreign policy: Taki's has it all just about backwards.
I believe mainstream America, on both sides of the aisle, is just about agreed that we ought no longer be engaged in the Middle East, except maybe to help Israel. Israel and the Kurds are about the only good guys in the region.
But what's the White House doing (and not just this administration)? They've kept Turkey in NATO even though the Turks now oppose everything we stand for over there (they fund Hamas, and the Gaza flotilla, and took the Russian side in its wars of aggression with Georgia and now Ukraine). They've also maintained ties with, and aid to, Qatar (which also funds Hamas). And they're cosying up to Iran.
All this is not only wrong, but dangerously stupid. It's urgent we break our alliances with both Turkey and Qatar before they drag us into a war with Israel on the bad guys' side!
And as for Kurdish independence -- that too would be a good thing. The boundaries in that region are not natural anyway -- they were drawn by Britain's colonial office after WW1. I see nothing wrong with letting Iraq split into parts.
And "terrorism on a daily basis"? No news there. Israel has suffered from that since before independence, while the West seldom gets attacked (and we can certainly reduce the chance even further by disengaging from the region). Our own police are a bigger terrorist threat to us than anyone the TSA or NSA hasn't caught yet. It's time to put serious restraints on those agencies or shut them down, especially TSA.
Feminists--Helping men to hate/despise/ignore feminists. And teaching them WHY.
Chicago: Nobody much cares about black kids shooting black kids in Chi-town. At least, mostly in Chi-town. Says a lot about Dem-run cities.
Preston: Don't think he's saying there was no choice, just very little chance of not going bad.
I don't know how to officially submit something. But here is a cartoon I just came across. It's entitled TURKEYS.
