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.
Soooo . . . Seattle is the birthplace of the "push them to the top"value system for women and minorities. The Seattle feminist leadership are determined there shall be no meritocracy--most especially in STEM courses. ALL STEM courses are being required to "dumb it down". Unfortunately, the generation before this group of female thugs took over, they demanded excellence. Today in the Computer Science classrooms at the U of Washington--the computer school funded and manned by Microsoft--those teacher's can't pass/fail any student. See here
But now we have this

Yes, yes, I know correlation does not equal causation, but . . .
I am in favor of witnesses in the impeachment trial. Someone suggested a one for one deal where each side could call witnesses but each side was limited to no more than the other side had called. The Democrats have already called 18 witnesses and used their testimony. I think the Republicans should call 18 witnesses and then no more.
Why won't Hillary go away? Because she can't, now. She's become a captive of her archetype. America jilted her at the altar in 2016, and now she's become Dicken's 'Miss Havisham' - left rotting in the ruins of the Clinton Foundation with all the clocks stopped, and plotting her revenge against the people who would dare to humiliate her in such a way.
I think she realizes that it was having her people in charge of law enforcement that was keeping her from getting fitted for an orange jumpsuit. Now that it's been revealed that the people who weren't supposed to be anybody's people were her people, that insurance policy is gone, so it becomes of utmost importance to assure that nay investigation of her can be spun off as political interference, much as is being done for the Bidens.

I was riding in my car when I heard on the radio that a helicopter crashed and killed Cody Brian. The name sounded familiar So when I got home I googled it and it was Koby Brian a basketball player or something. Who knew! An athlete made the news and didn't rape or assault someone.
“What makes so many people angry at Washington,” Schweizer writes, “is the fact that those with political power get to operate by a different set of rules than the rest of us.” Why is this man still alive? Why hasn't he been killed, or severely beaten up? Is he not taken seriously?
Why doesn't Hillary just go away? Where would she go? What would she do? Who would cater to her every whim?
VDH: The dems are dumb, and trying to fight someone who is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY FAR out of their minisule league.
