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.

Angry that their narrative has been debunked...they went from angry to insane years ago. It's all narrative all the time and the education system from top to bottom has been commandeered by the socialist communists to promote nothing but narratives defended by Alinsky tactics.
Joe Biden's racist speech: The Democrats are not happy with the fact that some more minorities are voting Republican. This requires that they double down on their scar mongering and race baiting. It is so ironic considering it was the Democrats who were the KKK and the Southern anti-black racists. But I expect more of this as the Democrats try to scare/bribe their base into electing them in 2020.
Makes one wonder how much longer we will have elections if they are getting uglier and more corrupt. Then one party says it won't abide by the will of the people, but will instead do everything it its power to impeach and remove the president.
It is later than most people think.
Leftists be like: "Religious bigotry is good. But smiling - not cool!"
A bunch of school kids are waiting for their school bus and nearby a black hate group is busily spreading hate and trying to bait the Indian hate group that is nearby as well. But the black hate group is a multi-denomination hate group and begins to vent their hate spleen on the school children. The school children continue to wait for their bus and try to ignore the racist insults being thrown at them. But now the Indian hate group leader recognizes a perfect camera opportunity with white, male Maga hat wearing kids to be taunted and likely antagonized into reacting he confronts them and beats his silly drum in their faces for 20 minutes. You can see the unhappiness in the hate filled Indian activists as the children don't respond to his hate and in fact seem filled with joy, almost as though they love life and just attended a right to life rally. But no worries, some far left anonymous activist with fake id posts a carefully edited clip of the interaction that "seems" to make it appear that the school kids were "confronting" the Vietnam vet tribal elder. And the left wing media runs with it.
Now that this story has been debunked and it is clear that it all went down in a manner that was exactly the opposite of the left wing meme the vapid left wing is angry that the story fell apart, still insists it must be true, and even if it isn't that wearing MAGA hats is the new KKK white hood. Think about that and let it sink in that these are the people on the left that are running the House and may well in 2020 run the Senate and presidency as well.
What should you do when confronted by an aggressive left wing activist? They are often yelling/screaming insults and racial invectives while their cohorts are taking video. Is there anything you can do? If you walk away these activist have been known to take advantage of your turned back to harm you. If you stand your ground they will push and shove and loudly insist it is you who is assaulting them. If you defend yourself you can be sure that the video posted online will only be of you pushing them away. It is often likely that one of their fellow comrades will be standing behind with a bicycle lock on a chain and hit you in the head. So what can you do? Your are being targeted and set up and are likely to be harmed and the media will then go to great lengths to publicly assassinate you. What could these school children have done?
A few years ago I would look at this kind of thing (the intimidation and silencing of opposition and the use of Communist Party social tactics to dominate policy discourse) and I would shake my head and think, "Sooner or later this all could end in violence, one way or another, or we won't have a free society."
As time passes I think more & more people are thinking to themselves, not only could it, but it ought to.
Here's another view "Phillips did not "march straight into the middle of the group of young people," starting at 1:11:10.
Christopher B: Lame.
Quite so — insular and tribal, never having experienced much diversity in their lives. But they are still young, and if the adults will set a good example, the kids should be okay.
Y'all are disturbed. Last gasp effort one would guess.
Can't we at least keep the vitriol from the left among the adults. It truly makes no sense for the left to be targeting children. This is worse than deplorable. Your time would be better spent telling the leftist activists to lay off the kids rather than trying to justify their child abuse to us.
When has the left ever made any sense or acted decently or honorably or adult like?
Diversionary. Not to the point. Humorless.
You possess no human thought that I've ever seen, Gasbot. Troll elsewhere.
re Covington Kids:
So now even innocent minors are being smeared in the political/cultural wars. They can't even vote and influence policy. They are children for crying out loud.
It is total war. It will involves all whether they want it to or not.

Bloomberg was mayor when I lived in NYC second time; before that in the 80's. Bloomberg revived the City and made it more than habitable, civilized, safe.
He 's quite non-ideological.
I''d love to have him as President.
My problem with Bloomberg is that he is a globalist, an elite, holds those views in preference to what is good for America and he is anti-constitutional. Other than that I suppose he is OK.
