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.
The Pacifist Left marches over the cliff with their grey pony-tails, with Cindy leading the way. Haven't we all noticed, however, that the Pacifist Left always picks which side should be Pacifist, and which side is entitled to go to war (ie, whatever side opposes the evil, evil US)? Cindy, remarkably, sides with Germany in WW2. I am not sure this represents true pacifism...
And the LA Times likewise goes over the cliff. Claude Allen steals because he's black? So what about all of the white thieves? Lots more white thieves than black thieves in the USA...guess it's cuz they're white.
You are correct. A true pacifist is against all war's and violence (including self-defense) for any reason.
Cindy Sheehan, and Code Pink (commies), are not pacifists or peace activists. They are a mouthpiece for terrorists, and communism/socialism.
Great site, BTW!
