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.
"[S]ingling out Trump for the turmoil engulfing the country is possible only if you disregard the No. 1 contributor: the refusal of Democrats and most of the media to accept the results of the 2016 election...."
Sen. Rand Paul: If socialists can't find a crisis, they'll create one
My observation is that most of them quit looking a long time ago. An invented crisis is much more easily tailored to their outcomes, and much harder to disprove. After all, if it didn't exist, it would be impossible to produce evidence to disprove it. In that respect, they remind me of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal. If there are any Douglas Adam's fans here, I'm sure they'll readily notice the similariy.
The Democrats and the media are refusing to accept the results of the 2016 election? Surely you jest! Why, I remember quite clearly how horrified they all were at Trump's suggestion that he might not accept the results of the election when challenged to do so by Hillary. Undermining faith in our most sacred institutions he was! Questioning the legitimacy of our elections system! He might as well be calling for doing away with the Electoral College or packing the Supreme Court or ending proportional representation among the states in the Senate or other means of fundamentally transforming the United States! The horror! How terrible! How unthinkable! Why, to think that Democrats and the media are now doing the very thing they so strongly condemned at the mere suggestion that the other side might be thinking of doing it is to suggest that they might be hypocritical or even, dare I say it?, been engaging in projection in accusing the other side of planning to do the very thing they themselves were planning to do. That doesn't sound like them at all.
Jorden Peterson calmly and rationally exposes the left for what they are. Therefore he must be destroyed in the same way that despotic leftist regimes have always destroyed anyone who disagrees with them.
Dairy Cows: Tangled Up In the Green New Deal [with comment by Steve]: Minnesota is nuts.
California's Gavin Newsom decides state's big, voter-approved gas tax won't be for repairing highways after all: I suppose a RECALL petition will be ignored. Still, one would expect this might convince some to move out of state.
There’s a new documentary about Jordan Peterson but theaters are afraid to show it: Lefties hate him.

Sen. Rand Paul: If socialists can't find a crisis, they'll create one: Obvious on the face of it.

Finding a Vaccine for the Impeachment Derangement Virus
Can any of the Democratic candidates pull America back from this madness? Why, I ask WHY, would the Dems WANT to do that?
President Trump is perfecting his method of improving the life of America's Main Street by using economic sanctions, now considered a useful tactic by Ukraine's new president and, apparently, OK with Mexico's president. It sure is easier to swallow than rounding up thousands of your finest youth, handing them arms, and sending them to far-off lands to fight for ? The latter sets a bad example for countries less educated to democratic ways. We should be the grown-ups in the room.
On climate change: yes, it changes. So do sun spots and the orbit of the moon around the earth and the earth around the sun. If these activists want to volunteer for something worthwhile, clean up the garbage and plastics smothering our oceans. beaches and parks. Plant a few trees, euphorbias or cacti...and add a vegetable garden to your yard, patio.or potch. Lots of good eats grow in pots.
