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.
“A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.” - Edward Abbey, naturalist and author
Quote thanks to LaShawn, with these quotes of hers, too:
The rule of law has been eroding for some time now. Think about the effect amnesty will have on criminal aliens who commit additional crimes, especially the ones prone to drinking, driving, and killing innocent people. The word illegal is rendered meaningless. If flouting immigration law isn’t illegal, why should drunk driving be illegal? Or selling drugs?
If you think there’s too much race-talk now, just wait until a critical mass of black people finally “get it” and realize how criminal aliens are hurting black workers forced to compete with them. Elite politicians and “the wealthy” are insulated. They don’t and probably will never have to compete with criminal aliens hired for low wages by criminal businesses. It’s the average person on the street who suffers.
And think about the message this sends to home-grown criminals. Under Bush’s plan, millions of foreign criminals would go unpunished just so they can continue providing low-wage and low-skilled labor. As I said, if you think you’re fed up with race now…
