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.
Understanding the homicide rates. If you only looked at homicides committed by Americans of Northern European descent our rate would be better than Canada, Australia, and most countries in Europe. About 92% more or less of homicides in America are committed by blacks, Hispanics, illegals and asylum seekers. Isn't diversity great?
I believe that the left would say I am using 'white privilege' when I acknowledge that most homicides and violent crimes are committed by POC. I guess I am supposed to avert my eyes and toe the party line.
It appears that the Biden/Obama administration is going to 'forgive' some amount of student loans. $50,000 is the latest number being put out there. Is this fair to all of those students who paid their own tuition??? Is it fair to people who couldn't afford to go to college and now work and pay taxes that will be used to pay off some freeloaders debt? It doesn't seem fair to me.
If student loans are such a problem why not end the program? I do not understand why the federal government is in the loan business, I doubt it is constitutional. Just end it.
As for everyone else who either paid for their own college or did not go to college I propose that they too get a check at least equal to the $50,000 the government is going to give the free loaders.
The article "chasing the Dragon" asks who benefits (other than Hunter Biden and the Big Guy) from all the pro Chinese executive orders. This article answers that question and the answer shouldn't surprise anyone. https://www.tabletmag.com/sections/news/articles/the-thirty-tyrants
We thought our elites were globalists - boy were we wrong. Buy your Chinese slave labor made NIKES here....
