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.

BD and others,
Thanks for the links,
Nice to read about things never covered in the MSM such as DOJ stopping of payments.
Noah Daponte-Smith wrote two different articles in one. In the first half, he writes about the spending and taxing that is slowly choking CT. Then he switches gears and blames it all on suburbs, small towns and home rule. You needn't look too far north to find the exact same system of subsidiarity working brilliantly. Of course, we in NH adamantly refuse an income tax and keep state spending to the barest minimum. You don't find cities here handing out lavish pensions because they don't have a bigger pool of money from their neighbors to siphon their graft from.
Feminism (the movement) wants to destroy both masculinity and femininity. Girls are criticised for being to girlish, boys are pushed to be more girlish... Sad because the two forces beautifully complement one another.
Boys instinctively have a need to push themselves. I remember one incident, back 60 years ago when I was about 7. The family car had a flat tire on the road on a windy rainy night. My dad went out to change the tire, and despite my parents wanting me to stay in the car, I felt my place was out there in the weather with him, holding the flashlight if nothing else. No one ever told me to feel that way, no one had to say 'man up'. It was more about feeling better about myself.
Jay, you will be glad to see that you were wrong to "push yourself" as a male 60 years ago. Now, you could be a transgender female highschool track champion !!!
Maybe there should be separate boy, girl, antifa, trump, anti-trump, DEM, GOPe, Berniesanders, BLM and transgender track meets?
sorry to post twice on the same topic, but I posted before pointing out that our US Marines have a "Toxic Masculinity Problem":
"THE MARINE CORPS HAS A 'TOXIC MASCULINITY PROBLEM":
What we need is to rely on being defended by a "Fighting Transgenders" Marine Corps led by General Chelsea Manning. That will erase all toxic masculinity pretty quickly. Maybe new frilly pink uniforms?
Puerto Rico, the Greece of the Carribean.
Dems won't take NO for an answer: Of course not. Have to keep the base fired up. (See also, Evergreen State College.)
"Whiteness is inherently violent": Sub-Saharan Africa, anyone?
‘Diversity of Opinion’ Is ‘White Supremacist Bullsh*t’
This is the problem with giving college degrees and professorships for the hate studies. Most of what they spew/teach is pure BS, made up to spread their biases and create havoc. This is the black KKK trying to create a race war.
The only good news in all of this is that they are so ignorant and so outspoken that the more they speak the more people see them for what they are. Let them keep talking, keep rioting and assaulting people, keep up the racist rhetoric...
Connecticut, the Puerto Rico of the Northeast. Why anybody stays there I don't know. It's only tolerable if you are rich, but if you have resources, there are so many other, better places in the US to live. The proximity to NYC is the only reason a person of means would put up with the high cost, crime and corruption, and questionable climate.
So Comey testimony proved to me many things:
1) He was biased against Trump from their very first meeting. Decided on day one that he needed to take notes of every convo, where he never felt the need to do this for Obama. Incredibly partisan behavior with no evidence to be so partisan. There was nothing in the first conversation he documented that showed any need to distrust Trump.
2) He somehow knew that Sessions would recuse himself 2 weeks before Sessions recused himself. That also smacks of either lying to cover your butt or a collusion behind the scenes with Dems or others who were hoping to push Sessions to recuse himself.
3) Trump is not under investigation.
4) Trump did not force him to drop any investigation.
5) Comey leaked his own memo to a friend to purposefully create a Special Counsel in the Russia matter, although he already said in testimony that Trump was not under investigation and, in fact, wanted all truths to come out about Russia. Very suspicious and smacks of politics.
6) A man who is 6'8" and in the FBI claims he was basically a coward and did not report his supposed suspicions about Trump angling for him to drop the Russia case.
In the end, Comey just made a very clear case for why he should've been fired. The end. Dems look foolish today.
Comey has played the Deep Swamp Game long enough to know he made a fool out of himself today. He sat on his thumbs for years while the Clintons Dos, the Bushes, THE OBAMAS, Eric Holder, Susan Rice, Loretta Lynch, John Kerry, Arne Duncan, Samantha Powers, Zeke Emanuel and scores of others lied, and lied, and lied without him lifting a finger.
Now he says he took notes on the meetings with President Trump because he thought he might have to address lies from the Chief Executive. Egads! Begone.
