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.
Declassification is right around the corner. You'll forgive me if I file this one with the "You may already be a winner!" notifications I get. There's always some breathless report of a new "bombshell" but the bombshells invariably turn out to be duds. It's almost as if the media is more interested in selling eyeballs with hyper-inflated hysteria than in actually reporting facts.
Without reports in alternative media and sites such as MF, few would know ANYthing about events as the LSM continues to present highly edited news and mythology that, if you switch from one station to another, use e.x.a.c.t.l.y. the same memes. Talk about scripted! Shades of Walter Duranty and Herbert Matthews. Tokyo Rose at her best! Now it's 98% of the talking heads and op/ed writers. Forget the facts.
The funeral industry is such a price fixing scam that one wonders how much it will cost to compost a body? After all, isn't that pretty much happened to bodies that were buried but not embalmed anyway?
And you will need a permit for that composted body...and, we need a government department to approve permits and collect the "environmental impact contribution." and let me think a minute and I will come up with more.
Seattle's city council is mostly immigrant minorities AND their staff are as well. Now this alone shouldn't be a problem but if you observe what they do and have done it appears that their allegiance is not to Seattle or America and they are destroying the city. This is a similar problem in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Israel: Even if one believes they are handling the Palestinian problem cruelly and the Palis are oppressed, there is no way this rises to the level of top 1000 problems a sane person needs to get exercised about. It's a zombie problem that refused to die, no matter how often it is killed. When events get really bad in the Middle East, it becomes abundantly clear that none of the other countries gives a rat's ass about the Palestinians and they are not the center of any problem there. Other rivalries and enmities far outpace it. But as things settle down, the idea migrates back to the top again that somehow Israel's treatment of The Palestinians is the key to the Middle East and all justice worldwide.
