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.

Amazing juggling finale. You have to see this, with the Beatles music. It will make your Monday morning a delight. I saw it at NE Repub first.
Baseball Glovology. And who was AG Spaulding? Embarassed to say that I did not know.
How the Administration lost control of the illegal immigration debate. Very good piece in Reason
Hamas' "I have a dream" speech. In short, Kill the Jews. These folks are not worthy of our attention, but they get it, by killing. Over time, the manipulative claim of victimhood will lose its luster as a pretext for murder and mayhem.
The Newt Man is Back! Gingrich critiques the Repubs harshly, and rightfully. Newt-Man is the Repub's Moses: they need to follow him.
The sustainable seafood movement picks up steam, with Walmart on board. CSM
Observant. When Mrs. Clinton says "You know," she is lying. It is one of those revealing verbal tics. Sensible Mom
PS: Read our April Fool's Day posts, if you haven't yet. We are proud of them.
