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.
The Democrats don't want to clean up Baltimore. They were responsible for screwing it up. It happened right before our eyes in record time. A incompetent DA and a incompetent Mayor teamed up to destroy the morale of the police department. They did it intentionally presumably to enhance their resume (the Mayor was talked up as a possible presidential candidate someday) and to check off the right PC boxes. The knew or should have known the results of their disasterous policies but did not care.
Where the effort should be spent is to investigate where all the aid dollars went. Who got it and who handed it out. The DOJ should appoint a special prosecutor to investigate. I would love to see some perp walks for this crime especially if it included congressmen.
Thamugadi: The height of the Roman Empire was a 300-year warm, wet period, and this city from that time is not the only one to be captured by the Sahara. Crops could be grown higher up the mountains in Italy, the Balkans, and Turkey as well.

as a rural resident, a farmer in fact, the problem is the "urban" dweller is content with the idea of government handouts and believes that anyone who gets them should vote progressive, the rural types, like me; would rather just have our jobs back or a new good one instead of handouts, the intelligentsia believes us hicks are just that, hicks and should just SHUTUP and vote for more, we didn't vote for Trump for more of the same, we want the damned thing burnt down, drained if you prefer
Re: the two recent mass shootings.
The left never lets a crisis go to waste. They want to restrict legal ownership of guns by honest law abiding citizens under the guise that it will keep the nuts and criminals from committing murder.
Recently a pickup truck killed 7 motorcyclists and injured others when he was driving illegally and using drugs and alcohol. Where were the Democrats insisting we should restrict honest law abiding citizens from driving cars (especially the assault pickups)? It's the same damn thing.
Here is a headline "31 dead, 62 rescued after boats capsize in Philippines"
We should demand that boats be outlawed. My god! How many mass capsizings must we endure before our politicians do something. Outlaw boats.
