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.
There are millions of mummies still buried in Egypt. And many of those mummies are the corpses of people who died from the Bubonic plague; a sickness for which very few people have immunity today. So in search of political power that exceeded their political legitimacy, the Egyptian government isolated this Bubonic plague; and then used a team of biologists to make it a thousand times more virulent. If this plague were ever released, it could, in theory, kill every single person on the planet. Israel, the United States, and the United Nations, have asked the Egyptian government to stop the project, and turn over all the biological weapons that it currently has. But Egypt, out of an insane desire for power, has refused. So now the world is left with a choice: Either wait until Egypt chooses to use the Bubonic Plague Weapon in a time of war; or to destroy Egypt, and all of its people, in order to protect the planet, and the human race. That's not a very difficult decision.
A true sickness has invaded the Front Range of Colorado. It started in Boulder in the 1960's. It quickly spread to the inner city of Denver. It has now grown exponentially to the area south of the Wyoming border to Pueblo. It is now popping up in mountain towns throughout the state and is devouring the Western Slope. Aspen was infected in the 70's when Hollywood celebrities and other better than thou millionaires built second homes there. Progressivism! There seems to be no known cure!
I should point out, that these lunatics won't let anyone kill the damn prairie dogs! Pete Boyles, a local talk radio guy, likes to tell the story of a group of prairie dog protectors. He was interviewing them, and after they went through their story on why you shouldn't kill prairie dogs, he asked them how they feel about abortion? They walked out of the studio.
