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.
The idea of illegal people ‘demanding’ anything at all is as offensive as the Sun-Times editorial, particularly when you think of all those people who go through hoops and the horrible, terrible labyrinth of lawyers and government bureaucrats, spending years and thousands of dollars trying to get one of the 140,000 green cards issued annually.
There is no ‘middle ground’ between homeowners and home invaders, and to suggest that there is, with an attitude of noblesse oblige, makes our blood boil. By the way, what business is it of the Chicago Sun-Times to suggest that citizens give up the sovereignty of their country just because some people take the day off and walk around with the flags of various nations? Fortunately for us all, there is no ‘middle ground’ in the trend of the MSM as they decline towards zero year after year.
The marchers may not be fully aware of this but their leaders are: they are pawns in a much bigger political chess game. It's about the demography, stupid!
