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 MSM makes no distinction between legal and illegal immigration. They call all of it "immigration." So I guess I can assume they support illegal immigration? Why would news media take a covert position on this? Or any position on this?
Hire me, Mr. Brady. It's the honest-blogger bake-off. A ten-year contract, at $500,000/year. I will seriously consider it.
In a more culturally confident age, the British in India were faced with the practice of "suttee" - the tradition of burning widows on the funeral pyres of their husbands. Gen. Sir Charles Napier was impeccably multicultural:
"You say that it is your custom to burn widows. Very well. We also have a custom: When men burn a woman alive, we tie a rope around their necks, and we hang them. Build your funeral pyre; beside it, my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your custom. And then we will follow ours."
"You will take possession by military force, of the printing establishments of the New York World and Journal of Commerce... and prohibit any further publication thereof... you are therefore commanded forthwith to arrest and imprison... the editors, proprietors and publishers of the aforesaid newspapers"
Order from Abraham Lincoln to General John Dix, May 18, 1864.
With the exceptiion of the usa, all the countries formerly ruled by the British Empire were more civilized under the Brits than they have been since. My grandfather's holdings, agricultural production, condition of the workers,etc were better pre-independence. Hooray for Charles Napier.
