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.
Agreed. Colbert is about as worthy of my time as anybody on "Morning Joe", especially Joe Scarborough. That either of them lied or said something that shows he has no grasp on reality is a given. There! That uses up my allotment of energy for the both of them for the next year.
Around 3 weeks before Charlottesville, a grandfather and grandson were beat to death in a home invasion by two black men and a black woman. The home flew a small Confederate flag from the front porch. It was in Piedmont Alabama on July 23, 2017. Twice as many people died in Piedmont than in Charlottesville. The woman in Charlottesville died from a heart attack after the car she was standing in front of was hit from behind by a driver fleeing for his life. Travis and Moody were at home and had strangers come into their home and beat them to death. Not one person in 100,000 in America ever heard of Piedmont, or the murdered victims, Travis Frost,73 or Joshua Moody, 23. When people mention Charlottesville you should mention Piedmont and the anti-white racists in the media and culture who have blood on their hands by demonizing white people.
