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.
... this reality denying madness we see going on with Progressives, has a late phase degeneracy vibe to it. Most of this nonsense is happening in well insulated compounds like the college campus. The Progs have total control so all of their worst instincts are free to run riot. It’s not some new phase in the long civil war, but the final burst of maniacal lunacy before there is the knock on the door and reality bursts in.
ohhhh . . .those ever "so advanced", "so far thinking" Swedes are at it again. When "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" is the only moral/ethical code you teach a child you eliminate their inner being--their personhood. Witness now those ever so
hip Swedish implants
Though I. I'm an atheist I am appalled at this charge. What business does that prosecutor have deciding what religious beliefs or non beliefs are true. Free speech is all about the right to vigorously disagree.
Unfortunately, Britain does not have freedom of speech. Nor does Canada. That's why our Framers put an absolute First Amendment in our Constitution.
The leftists and Democrats have been busily trying to get rid of the First Amendment and re-categorize anything they don't like as "hate speech," not protected speech (the First Amendment in fact makes no such distinction.) Or things that Trump says as "incitement to violence," not speech. So "take them out" now becomes an illegal incitement to violence.
People talk about Trump, but one of Hillary's campaign promises was to amend the Constitution to get rid of the First Amendment. A very dangerous and evil person.
The extent to which it is coming to light that Obama illegally spied on the Trump campaign (and I think we are going to find out he did the same with all the GOP campaigns) is totally mind-blowing. Dwarfs Watergate by a hundred-fold.
And yet not a peep out of the mainstream Fake News media.
My dad was a small business entrepreneur and a good one. If I wasn't busy doing my job, I would open a Chick-fil-A franchise because I love everything about their business model and I have never driven by a Chick-fil-A that wasn't busy.
That leads me to the point about the pizza gestapo article. I don't think that the average American has ANY idea what regulations like this cost in terms of dollars and hassle. Mr. Wiliamson hit it in the head: anyone who wants to know what a pizza costs in calories and carbs can find out in less than a minute. Requiring businesses to post a menu with EVERY possible permutation of those toppings and crusts is insane.
But it just gets to the heart of the Progressive agenda: "anyone who doesn't live like us just doesn't know all we know. Surely if they understood calories and carbs like us they would avoid this stuff". Um. No. We just know that we can't eat like this too often. Keep your virtue signaling out of my laws, please.
Obamacare is an abomination. It should be dead already. Kill it, Ryan and you RHINOS. It is what we voted for you to do, morons.
