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.

re Conn. Dems Want New State Police Dept. Just for 'Hate Crimes and Violent Right-Wing Extremism'

That's the beauty of 'right-wing extremeism.' It can mean whatever your persecutors want it to mean.
Hate crimes are the new brown shirts of the left. I don't think that there is an legal justification for criminalizing thought or beliefs. If you commit a crime you should face justice not a stacked deck based on your political beliefs. The very fact that "hate crimes" are only prosecuted against a particular group and other groups with obvious hateful intent are exempt. The one two punch of hate crime charges and left wing Soros backed prosecutors is distorting and destroying our justice system.
Try making sense of this 16 year sentence for a hate crime:
While I don't condone what he did I find it hard to see how it is any different from other politically motivated similar incidents. I happen to think it is disgusting and certainly hateful to burn the American flag but the Supreme court says it is protected under the 1st amendment. How then is it possible that the LGBQT flag is so much more elevated and protected and the 1st amendment negated???
Marantz: It just infuriates them that all these stupid people keep outwitting them.

Right on! Marantz ought to get out more. But not anywhere near me -
We have all played the game where you look at two or more things and try to find out what is different:
RE: No Giver Is Safe: How the Left Is Poisoning Philanthropy
A mindset that sees kindness and generosity as wrong is clearly ill.
But to publicly condemn charity - to twist giving into taking and helping into harm - and then demand punishment? That is more than a mere sickness. It is evil.
Uncle Screwtape was a sly and subtle devil. If Lewis's character had been as bold as the tools cited in the article, his readers never would have bought it. They would have scoffed at the idea that openly proclaiming such ideas could fool anyone.
Yet here we are: a legion of voices loudly decrying not just good works, but the very idea of good works. As unfasionable as it may be to say so, these people are satanic.
"That's sick. Do they hate the citizens? Or fear them? Brits are pretty decent folks, when sober"
BBC NEWS :
"Something quite remarkable happened in London in the first decade of the new millennium. The number of white British people in the capital fell by 620,000 - equivalent to the entire population of Glasgow moving out."
London is a turd world city now, hence the cameras. Also follow the link and read the comments...a lot of anger there.
