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.
We have been rough on the New York Times since Maggie's Farm opened for business. I think it is because many of us grew up with this newspaper, and had come to rely on her.
But she done us wrong.
Things have changed, since Pinch took over. So many feel betrayed, and played for fools. And have cancelled, despite missing much of their unobjectionable, good, well-written material on non-political matters.
We, and others, have caught them many times with their pants down, but now they are caught dead to rights: Powerline
It's a damn shame that they chose this route.
If you have an opinion, send it to the public editor at firstname.lastname@example.org, but do not expect any satisfaction. They have already drunk the kool-aid, and have left objectivity far in the past, with Abe Rosenfeld. Now, they are not only flagrantly partisan, but dishonest and anti-American.
You might almost think they were French, but, God knows, they might take that as a compliment.
Hopefully you will be boycotting a few other news sources as well along with the president. After all, one should be consistant, yes?
But still, the only new news that I see in the nyt article was that the government was breaking its own laws.
Also, if the so called experts in the article linked didnt know what was going on then we need some better experts. It isnt like the administration didnt already talk about doing it, the president himself said that it was going to be done.
Here is just another link for reading:
