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 American left believes its own bullshit too even though the history of socialism is littered with disastrous failures (and no successes). Greece, Venezuela, Argentina, Cuba, China (before eschewing Maoism), Soviet Union... The list goes on, but true believers, fellow travelers, and useful idiots believe that this time is different or they're smarter than both those who tried it before and those who say they know better. I think Greg Gutfeld said it best when discussing the Greek "NO" vote (paraphrasing): "it was as though the passengers on the Titanic had gotten together and voted to hit the iceberg!" We did the same thing in 2008 and 2012 (supposedly) with predictable results.
RE Cis Drag Queens Banned from Pride Event Because They Might Offend Trans People
I have no idea what this is supposed to mean.
Donny "The Bear Jew" Donowitz
It's worse than that. They found out that being inclusive of straight guys being drag queens offended tranny guys being drag queens and likely tranny girls being drag queens, who of course offended the straight guy drag queens, and the purse-slappiing and wig pulling was just so vicious!
