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.
Through Robert Frost and many predecessors, poetic and other, I recognize strengths and weaknesses in the species. Currently I am focusing on strengths.
There is a certain rough-hewn spirit of independence that goes deeper than any politics, and is expressed with a laconic drollness that cannot be defeated by the world. You could not enslave these people. They would not cooperate.
Cooperate only when we want to.Often, our bias is not to.
We must strive to be multiculturally tolerant and understanding of different views. Anyway, Christians do it too, right? Heck, we behead adulterers, gays, and blasphemers routinely in our church. It's a lot of fun. The masturbators, we bury alive just like the Muslims but we're running out of space for that in the churchyard and are considering using the Town Dump.
Now --let me see here. The last crusade finished in 1456. The primary crusades to which the illiterati refer in their support of their anti Christian campaign were back in the 1200's. The latter crusades being ones necessary to saving lives in Bohemia.
Oh Gosh--please don't ruin my Saturday with this one. .
Susan 'Stupid' Rice and Brian 'Braindead' Williams
Does anyone else but me see similarities in these two darlings of the left. Scooted right up that glass escalator. Given a free ride because of the absolute obedience to . . . Both chosen because they looked like someone else. Didn't have the brains of course--but for tv's sake they looked the part. Sheesh!
The Zero Hedge piece on vaccinations is well worth the read. And remember, we have "law enforcement" officers now rather than "peace officers" that are enforcing the mandates. Selling "singles" on the streets can get you killed.
