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.
Reuters, this time, manipulating the news. It's why we need blogs: The MSM is about propaganda, not news. This is not accidental. The Western MSM is not only anti-Israel, they are anti-Western Civilization. Why? It is a self-hatred disease - a moral, spiritual disorder probably born of decadence: too much comfort, too much wealth, too much security - and too little wisdom. Very strange.
Hey, Attila. We care about your feelings. Let's be friends. We want to understand your feelings, and we know you are a nice, gentle, Socialist, loving fellow beneath that rough, macho, raping, pillaging, warlike, imperialist exterior, and are only pretending to be a meanie barbarian, probably to help your fragile self-esteem. Let's talk it over, over coffee and a muffin or two (no, not that kind of muffin - I had the orange-walnut-pumpkin muffin in mind) at Starbucks (no guns or bow and arrows, please, indoors), and relate to each-other with modern multicultural understanding. Because we care about you, and we sympathize with your grievances against evil, evil, Western Rome. We love barbarians. And you are so much in touch with nature and horsies and stuff.
