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.
Can you write the worst opening line for a novel? A contest.
The Bombay (Mumbai?) Bombings. Looks like Jihadists. Gateway
Fluffgate continues in MA: At Maggie's Farm, we support the basic and Constitutionally-guaranteed freedom to eat fluffernutter sandwiches if they wish. CSM As we have noted, millions of otherwise normal Yankees have been raised successfully on this disgusting concoction, alternated with baloney sandwiches.
Karl Rove and La Raza. What's the deal? I think I know - it's probably about POLITICS! (Don't tell anyone.)LinknZona has his own view, along with some disturbing documents.
Fantasy Cowboy by John Podhoretz. Good stuff in the NY Post. h/t, Powerline
The NYT is confused by why tax revenues are up, and the deficit down. The Conspiracy. Would someone please explain it to them?
Speaking Truth to Power. Haha. Yesterday's protest at the NYT. Michelle
We are adding a few more new friends to the Olde Blogrolle: Assistant Village Idiot from the Granite State, Blue Crab Boulevard from Blue Crab Boulevard, and LinknZona from the land of 65 year-old women who dress like they are 17 (up here, we term that "mutton dressed as lamb"), and someone who doesn't like the notion of the Reconquista. Also, Villainous Company, with whom we feel quite at home.
