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.
They are very, very good at what they do. It looks cute, and hitting all the buttons that hack into our social and emotional responses. But isn't it a little trite - and irritating - to suggest that being a hedge fund manager isn't the real you and not what any decent person wants to be remembered for, but playing moody jazz is?

Pass. I like my White heritage. I like being White. It's not wrong, you know. :)
I don't have a problem with Disney. I don't have a problem with this movie. Modern cartoons are cute. They make most movies to appeal to a specific interest group. That's fine a lot of moves are. But here is my problem; they want the non-targeted audience to watch it and shame you if you don't care to watch. That is offensive to me. For example: I have enjoyed NCIS. Watched it for years. Just this week NCIS New Orleans began their season so I watched the first show. It revolved around a young black man who was "of course" innocent of the crime he was charged with and to make matters worse the victims of that crime were "white". But wait it gets worse because not only where they white but apparently to white people all blacks look alike. And there was a sub plot where the city advisory board is backing the removal of all bail because it is unfair to blacks don't you know. And around these two plots they lectured me and anyone else watching about how racist America is. I just love watching a good show that lectures me on how bad I am.
