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.
I'm not surprised the authorities are having trouble finding Al Quaida's web sites and email arrangements. Heck, I still can't find even Maggie's Farm blog on Google. Hunt for Zarqawi's Webmasters
Always tasteless and always funny: "At this very moment, the Christian right continues their relentless assault on Roe v. Wade by praying and singing their little Jesus songs outside brave Michael's home. The line between Christian and Islamic Fundamentalism has never been more blurred than it is right now." YES! Die with Dignity! DIE! DIE!!!!
How are sex offenders different from other criminals, from the standpoint of recidivism? Are they really worse? I don't know. Why not track all felons? Better idea - let's track everyone. After all, most of us are unarrested felons.
