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.

This is an old post. Is the library still there??
A visit to the secret library inside Grand Central Terminal
Most of the press articles about the library are 2009 - 2014 vintage, but I did find that there is a railfan group with regular monthly meetings there, so it must be continuing:
Greta Thunberg's mad denunciation of adults at the UN and all those adolescents out in the streets striking about climate change remind me of the Cultural Revolution in China.
I continue to be amazed at how a free people will willingly give up their rights and liberties, so gallantly fought for, by so many, for thousands of years. And for what? Some pagan belief in worshiping the earth. Worshipping nature. Willingly enslave yourself to the state, for some misguided utopia that is impossible to obtain. They are ignorant, arrogant fools. Their actions will lead to starvation and uncountable miseries for the world population. We can not, we must not let these people win.
Should have stuck with the kid's show, Bill. That was fun - but now you're just shoving your face in front of the camera for the sake of your own fame.
Hope the money was worth it.
Oh man...you post almost every day, and you really seem to have it in for Bill Nye.
I like that. :-)
re Social Credit Score USA - The impending nightmarish surveillance state.
This was a frightening video. The beauty of it from Government's POV is that they let corporate America do the dirty work, as it is now okay for them to discriminate against people who disagree with the Ruling Class. They can claim they can do nothing about it, that it is corporate America running their companies as best they can.
One wonders where public opinion will go with this as the system matures?
I am not sure it can be stopped.
I see precious little resistance to it all.
Re: Lindsey Graham Calls For Investigation Into Biden-Ukraine Connection
Graham is the chair of the Judiciary Committee. Why doesn't he hold a hearing, issue some subpoenas and get to the bottom of it? I keep hearing him go on about how this or that should be looked into but I never hear of any hearings he's held concerning those issues.
He was the only one who expressed the appropriate outrage at the Kavanaugh confirmation and I thought he'd finally gotten it but now all I hear is talk.
Dems Will Have To Lie About Their Agenda To Win, Poll Shows:
And they're REALLY, REALLY Good at lying.
Greta Thunberg is the spokesperson of the new children's crusade. She seems a little ignorant, arrogant, self righteous and sanctimonious but other than that, a very nice young lady.
So if a Republican senator put a neuro-atypical 14 year old in front of a committee to say "deport all the illegal aliens before they come to my house and rape me", would they be applauding her courage in standing up against sexual assault, or condemning those who would use the fear and terror of a little girl to score political points?
There you go being reasonable again. We've warned you about this before, sir.
My Econ 101 textbook defined Fascism as an economy with privately owned means of production with authoritarian state control. A lot has been added to that definition, primarily by the left, but it describes China pretty well. Not to mention Warren.
Fascism is a socialism with an armed, uniformed, government oversight. It is a far left philosophy that is/was so bad that the left felt compelled to try to convince us it is right wing.
