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.
Obama Just Called This "Rotting, Decaying Hellhole" A Symbol Of "Promise For The Nation"
Because that's his vision for the rest of the country. Not that Camden is going to crawl out of squalor, but the rest of the country is going to sink to it's level of decay, corruption and third world hellhole status. Those pictures look like Haiti.

I apologize in advance if this FYI is unnecessary or unrelated, but I suspect your website is redirecting to Go Garden Club .com.

This is happening tome too. I assumed it was more of my crazy computers quirks. I can't wait to buy a new lap top this one has been nothing but problems since day one. So being redirected seemed like just another quirk but since others are having the problem I guess I can't blame the computer.
"How Soaring Housing Costs Impoverish a Whole Generation"
The author uses his home town ofSan Francisco as proof of his claim. Well duh! San Francisco is probably the most expensive city for housing in the country.
In general the author is wrong. Housing prices are down even though there are indeed areas of the country where housing is expensive. The problem with the cost of housing, automobiles, food, etc. is that for a number of years now we have had considerable inflation without the benefit of most wages keeping pace. Housing prices simply reflect this reality. But in most cities and most states the cost of a house is still a bargain. When you include the incredible low interest rates on mortgages home ownership is cheaper than ever.
