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.

Even more heart wrenching then the ongoing destruction of the good ole USA, the number of unborn murdered every year. What a tragedy. All because the baby would be an inconvenience. With evil like that, not only legal, but actively encouraged in cases of the baby being tested for some ‘defect’, is it any wonder civilization is failing? Lord have mercy. Christ have mercy.

And human traffickers, and Fentanyl, and Covid.
An interesting twist on the 1918 deaths is that researchers believe a large percentage of them were pneumonia ands not the flu and that the pneumonia was caused by wearing cloth masks.
Wake up America. the global left is stealing your country. It began with allowing more and more immigration to dilute your vote. Then moving jobs offshore to reduce your economic power. The largest impediment to seizing power over Americans is the middle class. The latest ploy was to steal your vote. Not just the massive steal we all saw of the presidency but quite likely most of the Democrats running for congress benefitted from a fraudulent election. Do you really believe that Stacy Abrams sister become a federal judge by chance or because of her stellar legal knowledge??? Stealing America and thus being able to steal all it's wealth is the biggest game in the world. Do you think Soros is in this because he is a Democrat?? If you let them get away with this big steal they will finish the job in the next 4 years. There won't ever be another fair election... never again.
It is well known and well documented fact that Seattle and thus WA State have not had a clean election since before WWII !!! That is because the families on the wagon train, who first settled and benefitted from the "protected deep water harbor" never believed in our country--only in making themselves and their descendants wealthy. I have spoken with several "elected officials" and also some appointed AG's. They all acknowledged that the owners and the daughters of owners, etc.etc. do not support clean elections. Funny, that now they have gone nationwide with their fraudulent election skills--now you want to talk about it. You don't really think Obama was elected in a clean election do you? sheesh--until we show up in peaceful protest demonstrations as large as the demonstrations they can organize-- we will not have our country back again. Are you guys here at MF ready to walk on the streets in front of your local court house? No--well then you get what you are getting and it will be brutal.
re Abortion Leading Global Cause of Death in 2020 with 42.7 Million Killed
The practice is monstrous. How anyone works in an abortion clinic without losing their sanity is a mystery to me.
But here is something to think about.
Abortions statistics since 1965 in the USA:
Total estimated abortions by race/ethnicity for 1965-2018 (and compared to current population) are:
white, non-Hispanic: 28,900,000 (14% of current population)
black, non-Hispanic: 18,700,000 (42% of current population)
Hispanic: 9,200,000 (15% of current population)
other, non-Hispanic: 3,500,000 (15% of current population)
total, all races/ethnicities: 60,500,000 (18% of current population)
The CDC does not provide breakdowns of abortions among races grouped as "other"--Asian, American Indian, Native Alaskan, and Pacific Islander.
Given the demographics of those abortions and the voting patterns of said demographics, how much further left would the country be if those abortions had never taken place.
Are those of us who are against abortion, better off politically because of those abortions? It's an uncomfortable question.
I have a friend in Georgia who is left wing. He plays some minor part in Georgia Democrat politics. He laughingly told me that the Democrats paid the former KKK guy to appear at a Kelly Loeffler appearance and to pose for a picture with her.
50 former intelligence officers have declared that this is categorically untrue. Would they lie???
I am still bummed about the voter fraud. It was massive and of every type. We have it on video, we have the fake ballots, we have the impossible statistics, we have 500,000 more ballots being counted than were printed, we have over 1000 affidavits under oath of voter fraud and yet no real action. The DOJ "saw nothing", the FBI is still looking at ropes on garage doors, most of congress is happy to get back to "dirty" business as usual, a huge number of judges including the Supremes don't even want to look at the evidence. This all goes way beyond a candidate/party cheating it is a massive insurrection/coup by all three branches of government and a dozen or so states and 99% of the MSM. Is this it? Is this how it ends? Not with a bang but with a whimper? Starting Jan 20, 2021 anyone who says out loud or on social media that the election was stolen will be 'canceled' or worse. It is officially a conspiracy theory and you will be censored for wrong think. Re-education camps and 'lawfare' if you dare stray from the official version of the glorious election comrades.
I predict that within a year Hollywood will produce a film PROVING that the election was faultless and that the right wing is crazy AND responsible for all the Antifa and BLM violence and destruction.
'Voter Fraud' has become as absurd a term as 'Global Warming' if you ask me. Some say all elections have fraud, some say the fraud was not on a scale to change the election results. The first is almost guaranteed to be true, the second is designed to defuse the argument by re-direction.
There is a list of single immutable points on the 2020 election: - The vote counts in disputed states was interrupted (this is without precedent).
- The vote counts resumed under suspicious circumstances after poll witnesses were sent home, and large numbers of votes were tallied for Biden when opposition witnesses were not present.
- Republican poll watchers were harassed at the polling places and escorted out.
All of these things are in violation of election law.
More importantly are the issues with absentee ballots. Although contested states agreed to audits, re-canvassing, and signature checking by bipartisan groups, much of this did not occur. Although protests have been filed, the protests have not been addressed. And in the one example case where bipartisan groups were allowed to verify signatures, the Democrats own poll watchers rejected 11% of the sample set, which if projected to the total vote, would result in rejected ballots orders of magnitude greater than the difference in the tallied results between Biden and Trump.
You don't need to argue 'Voter Fraud'. This is a term that is a rhetorical cul-de-sac, on its way to becoming a pejorative, like 'Climate Denier'. You'll be labeled a crank for insisting on it, and that is falling into a trap. Rather, keep asking why procedures were not followed. Ask for explanations why they were avoided. Ask why in no court, State or Federal, was the evidence considered or the process of discovery allowed. Ask for explanations of the above infractions on election law. See if you get intelligible answers.
Well of course you are correct from a legal standpoint. But I can guarantee you if you follow that exact advice some 4-5 years from now you will have possibly proven your case and no one will go to jail, the election will stand and they will cheat on the next and all subsequent elections. It seems to me that the time to follow the law has passed. The time for more direct action or flying the white flag is now upon us. IMHO flying the white flag and following a legal course of action will both bring the same results; we lose, they win.
re $2,000 Checks For The Affluent
Because the affluent don't deserve to get THEIR money back?
And if they shouldn't get the money because of the deficit, then where have these deficit hawks been the last 12 years?
It's okay to blow money on pork, but not okay to give it back to the rubes?
