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.

I get gout every couple of years or so. And colchicine is a miracle. Cures it in about a day. Symptoms lessen in about an hour.
I sure hope I don't have a heart attack but if I do it appears that I'm covered.
"The Takeaway from Impeachment Theater Is That The Unelected Permanent Government Has Lost Confidence In the Voters"
Nach dem Aufstand des 17. Juni
Ließ der Sekretär des Schriftstellerverbands
In der Stalinallee Flugblätter verteilen
Auf denen zu lesen war, daß das Volk
Das Vertrauen der Regierung verscherzt habe
Und es nur durch verdoppelte Arbeit
zurückerobern könne. Wäre es da
Nicht doch einfacher, die Regierung
Löste das Volk auf und
Wählte ein anderes?
- Bertolt Brecht
After the uprising of the 17th of June
The Secretary of the Writers' Union
Had leaflets distributed on the Stalinallee
Stating that the people
Had forfeited the confidence of the government
And could only win it back
By increased work quotas. Would it not in that case be simpler
for the government
To dissolve the people
And elect another?
Sometimes you can’t hardly blame them! I am losing confidence in humanity myself. Good Lord, a man can have a period and get pregnant! The psychology profession is required to use non gender pronouns! We are actively feeding delusion. A jury of 12 allows for gender reassignment to a seven year old. People just go along. No outrage. All democrat candidates actively campaigning for a government that is no different than communist China; half the country is YAY socialism! The history of the world is littered with examples of what happens under that sort of tyranny, but no one reads history! For at least three generations, youth are taught to despise western culture, their own country. They are taught that liberty is slavery. How do we get our republic back? How do we recover sanity?
That story about the sky-high numbers of detained children, which was "retracted" when the powers-that-be noticed that the numbers came from 2015 and therefore would cast aspersions on the wrong administration, is an outrage. But is Ace not confusing Agence-France Presse (AFP) with Associated Press (AP)?
Thanks for the impeachment updates including the Babylon Bee, hard to know that they are pulling our leg. I'm taking VDare.org's advice and ignore the impeachment stuff and get on with the rest of my life. Maybe pay attention when it gets to the Senate. If Wall Street thought it was anything it wouldn't be at record highs.
I went to Google and typed in the search term "What is Google hiding from me that they don't want me to know?" and got no relevant returns, so I'm confident Google is not censoring the internet.
That is really funny.
Did you try typing that into Duck Duck Go?
Jerry, I needed that laugh today. Thanks for it. Keep up the good work
Impeachment Theater for the Chumps:
Did anyone catch Rep Val Demings giving Amb. Yovanovich a tongue bath. It was so icky as to be laughable. It's one thing to respect someone's service but quite another to bang on about a pencil pushing bureaucrat.
Off topic, but I am the only one who notices the overuse of the word, hero. I reserve it for the tip of the spear and their immediate support, LEOs and other First Responders, maybe some activists who actually do put themselves on the line, people who work in arduous circumstances (ie lineman or pipeline workers working at below zero), those who have overcome obstacles against tremendous odds and at great personal cost...…. not bureaucrats, not athletes, not entertainers or media people...…..
ACLU Advises Us: Men Can Have Periods And Get Pregnant: DAMN. I've been missing out on that!!!!!11111!!!!!
Mob of Moonbats Crushes Free Speech at Binghamton: Poor deluded fools!
L.A. voters think money spent on homelessness is going down a rat hole: Not "A" rat hole; thousands and thousands or rat holes.
Clinton Foundation bleeding money with no Clintons in high office: I am so NOT BUMMED by this. Clintons, your TIME is UP. Go AWAY.
can't we just moveon.org from the Clintons already? Apparently not if Hillary decides to throw her pantsuit into the ring again this year (hopefully she is wearing another one underneath so we don't all suffer retinal damage).
Did anyone else look at that picture and hope that he only pulls that bar to the chest and not to back? I would hate for him to hit his beautiful daughter with the bar.
Re men can have a period and get pregnant.
When You become politically correct you have to deny reality and live in fantasy land.
