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’m pushing 60 hard and never thought I would say that I’m glad I don’t live in the US. 8 years active Army 15 NG and assorted time in the Peace Corps and Volunteer Fire Depts. Don’t recognize it and don’t care if I ever set foot there again.
yeah, dreamed of emigrating to the US for 20 years. Last decade it's gone down so far I don't even fancy visiting there as a tourist any longer.
Kazakhstan looks nice for next year, or maybe Uganda, but not the USA...
Kazakhstan an interesting place; spouse was there on a geological trip some years ago. Elmaty was very worldly at that time. One thing missing: bacon.
Kazakhstan is a fascinating place but....bring a geiger counter and stay away from the water.
re Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar Calls For “Dismantling” of US “Economy and Political Systems
I think it will be interesting and perhaps indicative of how far the rot has set in, whether or not she is re-elected.
Ditto for AOC.
Both will walk into reelection in landslides....won’t be close.
That would be a disgrace.
Don't know much about the ground game for either, but find it hard to believe that a well-funded and well-organized effort could not defeat both these two anti-Americans.
You must not understand the people that vote for them. Obviously most are just like they are, immigrants (invaders). They escape their old "shit hole" and bring the "shit" with in order to change this country into the country they left.
New head of news at NBC-Universal openly promises to discriminate against Caucasians: I don't watch TV news, and now i have reason to specifically not watch NBC.
New head of news at NBC-Universal openly promises to discriminate against Caucasians: That's RAAAAAAAAAAAACIST!!!
What Rush Limbaugh got wrong about wokeness in pro sports; That's not the way it looks to me. I could be wrong, but then, I don't watch or care about NFL football.
Radical Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar Calls For “Dismantling” of US “Economy and Political Systems” (VIDEO): That would not work for you, missy!
Biden Says Police Have “Become the Enemy” and Calls For Defunding the Police (VIDEO): Joe is nuts.
I lost all interest in the NFL when the half-white kneeler wasn't fired.
Oh, I may watch the Super Bowl but that is it.
Listening and reading this morning about all the teachers up in arms over kids being back in school this fall. Heh. So, we're supposed to accept a New Normal of kids stuck in homes, the very worst thing for them long-term from virtually all perspectives. Talking heads wailing about the poor teachers, overcrowded classrooms, pre-existing health condition, what-abouts etc etc. Not one suggestion about how it might be constructively managed.
Starting to wonder if the Teacher's Union is going to become Trump's analog to Reagan and the Flight Controller's Union. IT could turn into an opportunity for a major turnaround in our educational institutions as well as the public schools.
With the recent SCOTUS decision to allow taxpayer money to non public schools including religious schools, I somehow think that mass movement of students to competitive education outside of government schools is a near given. Teachers unions will be as destructive to their monopoly as BLM is to their Democratic strongholds.
re Opposing Black Lives Matter Now Means Hate Crime Charges
Of course it does. The Left is just ratcheting up the cost of opposing them.
With their allies in media/social media, and corporate America now firing people for holding the wrong opinions, the Democrats are getting very good at smothering opposing viewpoints
Meanwhile, these were not hate crimes. There is likely no need for the reader to hit the link. One can easily guess why these aren't hate crimes.
Omar and AOC ...
Omar fondly remembers the refugee camp she grew up in, and wants to turn the entire country into one.
AOC is a toddler who thinks that by smashing what she doesn't like she's going to get a shiny new toy that she'll love.
Gonna miss Brooks Bros, they were a staple during my professional years.
Ilhan should be publicly whipped in accordance with her faith tradition.
Let's face it, from now on, if you make the mistake of dressing "preppy" or "traditional," you are identifying yourself as a privileged racist opposed to POC. People are going to dress as inconspicuously as possible to avoid attack. There's no future for folks like Brooks Brothers. Tommy Hilfiger or Ralph Lauren.
How long do your think folks like this are going to last in Woke Culture:
Kiel James Patrick
(I can see the styles continuing to survive in places like Japan and Korea, where a number of folks like to dress preppy, but not in post-America America.)
re New head of news at NBC-Universal openly promises to discriminate against Caucasians
I appreciate his honesty. His discriminatory policy against white men is above board and for all to see.
Look for other CEOs to follow suit.
