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.
Is this news? It's like Dog Bites Man. Of course, ducks always eat aliens, wherever they can find them, now that they have no food due to Bush's Global Warming Crisis.
That's why we see so few inter-galactic aliens around, these days. And so many fat ducks. It's a no-brainer: the ducks are obviously eating up all of the aliens - because of Bush. It doesn't take a scientist to put 1 and 1 together.
What do you expect the ducks to eat? MacDonalds? Poached salmon with dill sauce? Oysters Rockefeller?
They do not seem to have taken to eating illegal aliens quite yet: give them time to adjust to the jalapeno and cilantro flavors, and they will gobble them up, too.

You joke, but that is definitely an alien in there.
I know - I have seen them myself, walking around my apartment complex. The ducks will not eat them all - there are just too many of the little purple buggers.
Or maybe I need a drink.
