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.

A 36-year-old doesn’t sense danger when a gun is put to his forehead? Oslo is lost indeed, and they have only themselves to blame.
Norway has gotten exactly what they voted for just like Venezuela and California. I wish I could work up some "care" but I can't. The citizens of Norway and change all of this in the next election, eject the "immigrants" and take back their country. But they won't. They will elect the same people again who will continue selling their voters down the river just like always. The citizens will do nothing to save themselves.
DrTorch: Breivik will be considered a hero in very short order.
Breivik, a right-wing avowed fascist, committed the deadliest attack in Norway since WWII, killed 77 people, injuring over 100, many of them children. Norwegians almost universally reject Breivik's extreme xenophobia.
Haha! This is a great example of why machine intelligence doesn't work. The response to "Brevik" totally misses the point!
FRP: The response to "Brevik" totally misses the point!
The claim was that "Breivik will be considered a hero in very short order." The claim is not supported by the evidence. Killing ethnic Norwegians to oppose immigration just doesn't seem to be a starter. Polls show that strong majorities of Norwegians think that immigrants make important contributions to Norwegian society. The young especially reject xenophobia.
However, you are more than welcome to explain the point.
Pedantry Module QuadCore 5000
(Never gets old.)
FRP: Norway has gotten exactly what they voted for ...
U.S. Department of State: Norway has a relatively low level of crime in comparison to the U.S. and Western European countries with large populations. The amount of total crimes reported in Oslo for 2017 decreased from 2016 by 5.6%.
SafeAround: Olso is a safe city; although it has a poor reputation among Norwegians – compared to other Norwegian cities which have 0% crime, Oslo is a bit more dangerous; but it still is one of the safest cities in Europe.
Back to your misleading pedantry, hey kiddiez?
U.S. Embassy Oslo does not assume responsibility for the professional ability or integrity of the persons or firms appearing in this report.
Norwegians don't commit a lot of crime here, either. Norskis are a very orderly people.
They are catching on. They see Sweden and shudder.
There is really only one answer and that is a mass roundup of all the recent immigrants and deportation. It will take violence and it may devolve into a civil war. Better now than 2, 4, 6 years from now. It is the only thing that will save them. I predict they will do nothing.
Breaking on CNN .... Stormy Daniels' lawyer may have information on missing Malaysian Airlines jet!
Tune in now for 24x7 inane speculation ...
Inane? Or insane?
With CNN's reporting any more, it's hard to tell the difference...
Oh the outrage!
Chill, kiddiez, CNN will be on all day.
I do not understand why her extortion is allowed. First she extorted $120,000 from him and now she wants to destroy him. Obviously she is well funded in this and is simply a dupe being used by the Democrats or Soros. Where is the outrage over a ex-sexual partner extorting someone???
I really don't see how she gets to first base with any of this. She says there is "no agreement" with Trump et al. So what about all the money she took?
As the saying goes, we know what she is, now we're just dickering about the price. And yet she claims "damaged reputation."
Jim: She says there is "no agreement" with Trump et al. So what about all the money she took?
Daniels has offered to return the money.
And that alone has to make you wonder. She isn't so rich that $130,000 is peanuts. Who is paying her to do this? Soros? Hillary? The DNC? Russia? THAT is the real story here.
Only "offering," to a lawyer says she knows the contract is actually binding. In other words, she's offering to rescind the contract which would free her from suits for breach. Trump's lawyers are too smart for that, this allows them to sue her at some point for actual and punitive damages for her breaches of confidentiality, as well as all the other games she is playing.
Anyway, her lawyer is a lightweight ambulance chaser. All bark, but these guys are actually always short on performance. They just want a settlement without having to do any work. I think this guy is going to find that Trump's lawyers take him apart and he is going to rue taking this case.

NYT lies about Israeli fence? Color me Completely Unsurprized.
The Harvard President's comment about a period of “increasingly urgent questions about race and policing in the United States." Is the same sort of self-fulfilling prophecy that was used by the psychiatrists and psychologists about Trump's mental health.
Liberals Monday: (Raise questions about race in policing in an urgent tone of voice.)
Incident with police and black person Monday night
Liberals Tuesday: This is worse because it comes at a time when people are raising urgent questions. We are even more urgent.
All Others Wednesday: Who is raising these urgent questions?
Liberals: We are.
All Others: Anyone else?
Liberals: No, but that only shows how important it is to listen to us, because everyone else refuses to talk about it.
All Others: Got any data?
Psychs: Trump must be mentally ill because he is provoking anxiety and depression.
All Others: Weren't some people anxious and depressed when Obama got elected?
Psychs: Yes, but that's because they are vicious bigots who couldn't stand to see a black man elected and can't face the modern world.
