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.
Hamas can't let Israel go.That's right - opposing the existence of Israel is their only claim to power. If the Palestinians were interested in anything else - like running a country, and an economy, having normal happy lives, getting educated, etc. - these terrorist creeps would be outta there. Tiny Israel, with no natural resources other than people, is the Great Middle-Eastern scapegoat and distraction from their own failings. Without Israel, or the Americans, they'd have to look at themselves in the mirror - and who wants to do that? So killing Jews, a handful at a time, can keep them in power for a long time, because there are lots of Jews in Israel.
As if to confirm that notion, Ahmadinejab said this on the 8th (Gateway):
"The basic problem in the Islamic world is the existence of the Zionist regime, and the Islamic world and the region must mobilise to remove this problem," the president said at the opening of the two-day conference.
Well, if Israel is the greatest problem, then the Middle East has no problems. These guys learned from history that distraction, hatred, and scapegoating are effective political tools, especially with the ignorant and the uneducated.
The girl is purely art for art's sake.
Photos of boys, mp? Ummmm, well, we do use Michelangelo's David on occasion. Email us a "boy" photo, and maybe we will use it for something. But nice photos of sexy young guys tend to make the Maggie's Farm staff feel inferior, and do damage to our fragile self-esteem.
nah--- no chance there is any fragile self esteem at the farm--don't believe it as there is too much tough ,right wing gun totin',tractor lovin' talk going on there. however in the name of fair play i will send a "boy " photo that goes with something smart to read. always happy to oblige the news junkie
