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.
Among the islanders, signing was considered a life skill, like knowing how to fish, more than a formal language to be taught. “It was passed on to kids as part of, ‘Here’s the stuff you need to know to make a living in this corner of the world,’” Van Riper said. Children picked it up from their parents; no records indicate that it was ever taught in schools.
Great satire. It's ashamed people have gotten so smart that this type of parody would even exist. I'm glad I'm a dumbass. I wake up everyday an just live my life without giving a shit about other peoples problems or persecution(s). (With a couple of exceptions)
When I was a student at Vassar 25 years ago, most of the 'social justice warrior' types were trust fund babies. They were filled with outrage and demanded a total transformation of the system - right up until the point where it interfered with their material comforts and guaranteed future upper-middle-class status.
Wonder if that's still the case nowadays...if not, who pays for these people's car, apartment, and smartphone/credit card bills after graduation while they do their free internships at a nonprofit organization?
That is the plan. Europe must erupt into a civil war for it to be destroyed and rebuilt by the victors. For the citizens it is a case of sitting in the water as it is brought to a boil. It doesn't seem bad enough yet to rise up against it. By the time they figure out what has been done to them the Trojan horse is already inside the gate and their country is occupied. Gun laws have already effectively disarmed the citizens and they are leaderless. We will sit in the cat bird seat and watch Europe destroy itself. Our turn is next.
