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.
Mel Brooks wants your money. I say, give it to him - he deserves it. A look at the Mel Brooks DVD collection, at The Shelf. "What hump?" Hahaha.
Yale at Horsefeathers "looks into" Mansfield's Manliness, and finds it wanting. That "Yale" can write - wonder what we'd have to pay him to get him to write for us?
Harry Reid wants illegal immigrant felons to become citizens (Powerline)...but look at what he said ten years ago - amazing the way folks "grow in office"- from piece in Instap.:
"We are a country founded upon fairness and justice," Reid said. "An individual in real threat of torture or long-term incarceration because of his or her political beliefs can still seek asylum. But this bill closes the door to those who want to abuse America's inherent generosity and legal system."
Reid's bill also cracks down on illegal immigration. The 1990 census reported 3.3 million illegal aliens in America. Recent estimates indicate about 2.5 million immigrants illegally entered the United States last year.
Feelin' too good today? Real Yankees should always be a bit cranky about something. Try this, at Protein - the latest schemes of the trial lawyers and obesity. I always find it deeply moving to see how much those guys really care about people.
