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.
It's vacation time again, in France. Watch the protests in France fizzle. What a country. The protesters will be at the beach in Spain with their parents! Vive la revolution des enfants.
Hey Sy Hirsch. We consider all options. That means consider. Can you consider anything other than reflexive anti-Americanism?
S,C and A has had it with the "colonialism" theme. Me, too. Those ex-colonial countries are lucky. They were given a chance to come out of the stone age, but many of them do not appreciate the opportunity, and wish to return.
A French econ professor tried the real world for a few weeks - and was converted. Of course. She was surprised to find out that people work fairly hard, with enthusiasm, and enjoy working. Why is the Left anti-work? Work is good. Work is fun. Work is interesting. Work is ADULT.
Will the MSM ever admit that Saddam was supporting Al Quaida? No. It doesn't fit their theme. Don't bother me with facts. Lib. Leanings
The economists at Marginal Rev. look at the Mass. Health plan. They sort-of like it.
Reducing pollution is worsening global warming. Oh, man. Can we forget this yet? Whatever the cause, nothing effective will be done. Let's get over the hysteria. Ten years ago, the hysteria was the next ice age.
Ed Rendell is a good ol' boy, but he has a problem with Lynn Swann. Swann will win.
French "tribalism" is interfering with the Communism they need. Sheesh. What dopes. Hopeless.
But Saddam had no connection to Al Quaida; why do you want to insist he did?
Hersh has a pretty good record of identifying critical issues in the way government conducts itself. it may just be that Bush and his government are out of touch with reality and far too willing to risk all our lives for their beliefs.
