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.

or maybe the bonobos are going extinct because they are too busy canoodling with the same sex, instead of procreating which requires the oposite.
Try to explain that one to any liberal on the internet. My Lord, they are truly writing their own death warrants. I don't get it at all...after 9/11 these people learned nothing at all.
We invited people in to train at our facilities and they took that training and killed thousands. If that doesn't give you some pause about letting more people from the Middle East into this country, then I don't know what else to say.
The left is bending over backwards to prove they are 'open minded' and 'accepting of everything and everyone' without looking at Europe to see what that has brought them.
Do we really want to be 'just like Sweden' and see our rapes increase in this country? I can't even understand this attitude. If ever we needed a candidate strong on immigration, this is the time.
MissT: Do we really want to be 'just like Sweden' and see our rapes increase in this country?
The high rate of reported rape in Sweden is due to legal, statistical, and substantive factors.
Never cared for Mad Men though John Hamm delivered the only scene (in Season one) that I thought was great and memorable. But my late wife and my mother liked it and so I had to sit through seven seasons. I thought it had the leftist bias against America and had a depressing tone and viewpoint.
This year I don't have anyone in the house who's a fan so I'm not going to brother to watch the last eight episodes. Even for free on Netflix.
The muslim invasion of Europe will end in bloodshed/civil war. The only question is will the Europeans choose to defend themselves or will they give up. I certainly see no strong leaders in Western Europe, they seem willing to give it all away. My advice would be to call up the army, institute a draft and round up and rid their countries of the invaders. No exceptions, no quarter.
GWTW: Add up the European KIAs and missing in action and so on for WWI and WWII, none of it makes any sense.
Tilt yer head and squint just so and it looks like a civil war. Two generations of select young men gone.
No wonder Europe is like it is, the best breeding stock either dead, maimed or insane.
By and large the descendants of the unfit, or their wives, or their "partners" run the place now.
I notice the Moslems streaming into this vacuum are largely warrior stock. Warrior stock, and breeders too.
The Imam or whoever is encouraging these warriors to breed with women in the host countries.
Half a Muslim means all Muslim.
GoneWithTheWind: My advice would be to call up the army, institute a draft and round up and rid their countries of the invaders. No exceptions, no quarter.
That's right. Get rid of the Jews Muslims and other foreign elements.
chasmatic: Half a Muslim means all Muslim.
The one-drop rule.
"That's right. Get rid of the Jews Muslims and other foreign elements."
Indeed and why not. Do they have borders and laws or not?
Each country can choose to do as they wish (not entirely true but in fact absolutely true). If they choose to let in the muslim hordes in a short time the new citizens will riot and demand that the country change to look like a Islamic country. At that time their numbers will be much greater and their demands will be impossible to meet. There will be only one choice and that will be a civil war where muslims kill non-muslims and vice versa. So which is better? To take in the refugees and condem the country to inevitable bloodshed or to turn the refugees back which will save many lives perhaps millions of lives? Use logic and reason vs left wing politics.
Muslims March Through Streets of Denmark – Demanding a Caliphate
The video is cute. The marchers are peacefully keeping within the designated lines, while pedestrians and bicyclists go by, including what appears to be a parent with a stroller.
Muslims are about 4% of the Danish population.
Of course the New York Times loves the new pope, he's a communist!
However, the idea that US Catholics are highly supportive is highly suspect. My wife is a Catholic and among her friends, the reaction tends to run from mild dislike to calling him satanic. Imagine that, devout Catholics calling the pope "satanic".
Of course this is a very small sample but many source indicate that the divisions now run deep throughout the faithful. Seems like the Catholics have found their Obama.

These 20 Scientists Want to Make it A Crime to Disagree with Them
That's not accurate. The claim is that that industry groups have "knowingly deceived the American people about the risks of climate change". This is what happened with the tobacco industry, when it was proven that they knew tobacco was dangerous, but lied about it to the American people, and to their own customers. There's a pattern of dark money flowing into contrarian climate research, as there was with tobacco, but that in itself is probably not sufficient to justify an investigation, much less an accusation.
letter to Osama, which you didn't read, or, more likely did read and are assuming no one else will read, because this is how you people operate: flippant answers, misrepresented facts.
We appreciate that you are making aggressive and imaginative use of the limited tools available to you in the face of a recalcitrant Congress. One additional tool – recently proposed by Senator Sheldon Whitehouse – is a RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) investigation of corporations and other organizations that have knowingly deceived the American people about the risks of climate change, as a means to forestall America’s response to climate change. The actions of these organizations have been extensively documented in peerreviewed academic research (Brulle, 2013) and in recent books including: Doubt is their Product (Michaels, 2008), Climate Cover-Up (Hoggan & Littlemore, 2009), Merchants of Doubt (Oreskes & Conway, 2010), The Climate War (Pooley, 2010), and in The Climate Deception Dossiers (Union of Concerned Scientists, 2015). We strongly endorse Senator Whitehouse’s call for a RICO investigation.
RICO is type of a federal crime based on a pattern of other criminal offenses, you don't call for a RICO investigation unless you want a RICO indictment. so these asshatted warmal colding fetishists are calling for an indictment of scientists who disagree.
perfect libtard tactic. you people can't convince anyone so you use the courts to shut down dissent.
Donny "The Bear Jew" Donowitz: which you didn't read
We did read it, which is obvious as we quoted the section "knowingly deceived the American people about the risks of climate change".
The claim in the headline was that they want to prosecute due to disagreement, when, in fact, they want to prosecute for what they see as deliberate lying.
yeah. you got pwned again.
read whatever you post before you post it.
The letter clearly states they are accusing industry groups of "knowingly deceived the American people about the risks of climate change". That is not the same as mere disagreement. The headline is misleading.
circular reasoning. george bush made global colding is not accepted science in any meaningful sense. you people have 40 years of failed climate predictions, and can't predict next week's weather accurately.
you're not going to get your RICO prosecution fantasy.
The headline was inaccurate. They are not complaining about the groups being honestly wrong, but claim the industrial groups are conspiring to disseminate falsehoods, similar to what was proven with regards to the tobacco industry.
It's not circular reasoning, just arguably wrong.
Donny "The Bear Jew" Donowitz: RICO is type of a federal crime based on a pattern of other criminal offenses, you don't call for a RICO investigation unless you want a RICO indictment.
Civil action is available under RICO.
the letter, which you clearly haven't or won't read, says "guilty of the misdeeds". one is guilty of a criminal offense, liable for a civil claim.
but this doesn't matter, one way or the other, libtards using prosecution by civil or criminal RICO to shut down dissent and free speech is repugnant, and therefore the prefect tool of libtards.
Again, that is incorrect. A civil action under RICO requires a showing predicate offenses, or "misdeeds".
I don't know about the 'honest leftist' claiming everything belongs to the State, but isn't that the essence of Hobbes' Leviathan? (The life of Man in Nature being solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.) Everything you have is due to the fact that government is there to prevent somebody from whacking you on the head and stealing your stuff - so you have no right to complain if government whacks you on the head and steals all your stuff. Fortunately we here in the US relied a little more heavily on Locke and Smith for our political philosophy.
