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.

Re 13,000 unaccompanied kids at the border. Makes you wonder what the real number is if the Democratic Media is reporting 13,000, doesn't it?
In all seriousness, the best thing we could do, the most humane thing we could do for these people is to quickly return then to their home country and to their family. I do understand that their family sent them here to get their foot in the door to allow them to eventually bring in the rest of their family. I do understand that the family kind of sacrificed their children for that purpose. But that does not change the fact that these children should be quickly and safely returned to their homes. To not do this only perpetuates this human tragedy not just for these children but for the 100's of thousands more that will be sent here to become the new anchor babies for unlimited illegal immigration.
They hated Trump so much they'd burn down the country to get rid of every vestige of his policies.
But isn't that the way with incompetents? Destroy what they have no ability or knowledge to create?
Well, we might be able to get through 3 more years of this garbage. But the 2024 election can't go to the ancient Dems, or the GOPe who would rather enable the Dems than manage in an adult manner, not if we expect the country to continue functioning well.
I was sure the "blot out the sun" story was the Bee. It is even scarier that it is real.
re: blot out the sun..
"The experiment involves flying a balloon above Sweden to see if it can block sunlight on its way to Earth — with hopes of creating a new way of fighting global climate change."
They'd better be careful; this experiment shows, sotto voce, that they realize the "man-made" part of the "climate change" narrative is probably wrong. For the first time they're blaming incoming solar radiation instead of mankind burning fossil fuels.
Re Bill Gates: Before anyone moves ahead with his latest bright idea, let's talk about what Plan B is in case, just possibly, there are unforeseen negative side-effects from reducing solar flux on the planet. By the way, do the Scandinavians get a say about their countries getting turned into Siberia West?
This man should stick to the defective software business, or work on a full-length feature animation of a dancing paper clip.
My immediate thought was "sovereign airspace" though I have to presume that any such experiment would have Swedish approval (they're into this sort of nonsense).
In any event, stick a balloon over a country, fiddle with its atmosphere but don't be surprised if it gets shot down.
It's just the first step - demonstration of concept. Though I'd have thought umbrellas and sunshades had already done that.
Wait until they decide to launch a shade/blocker into space to orbit between earth and the sun full time. They'll be able to shut off sunlight - create an continuous artificial solar eclipse - whenever and wherever they want.
This is the first step in the global elite "owning" the sunlight. Soon you'll have to pay a monthly subscription if you want sun light. And farmers will have to in order to grow food. Other wise, instant darkness or frost. Creating little mini-ice ages.
Better to put a stop to this criminality now.
The problem with Florida or Texas lifting covid restrictions is that it exposes the bit lie. While I am sure that there are many people and politicians who truly believe masks and 6' will slow the spread or even stop it most serious people and scientists have known all along that this is simply not true. It is a very attractive lie, as in "wouldn't it be great if we could all be safe from this disease?" Well, yes it would but the reality is that airborne and contact transmitted viruses spread easily and are not stopped easily. So IF Florida or Texas is successful it will convince the majority of the population that the previous 12 months of lockdowns, inconvenience, job loss, bankruptcy, government over reach and political tyranny served no medical or moral purpose AND in fact allowed the dark forces of the left to seize power. THAT is the fear and that is why the MSM is fighting to protect the left.
Make no mistake, if in fact Florida and Texas do show that this charade was a terrible mistake the MSM and the left will manufacture 'facts' to disprove this. Even though the covid conspiracy has already served it's purpose and now the left will go full Venezuela on us they will not allow any truth to come out. Watch for it, Biden and Pelosi will waste their valuable time on TV to deny that the governors of those states that ended lockdowns are right.
Re: Biden, Harris, Psaki and Other Top Staffers Afraid to Appear in Sunday News Shows
If they are afraid of the softball questions they’d get on a Sunday show, they must really be scared!
This morning we are seeing a horrible crime in Atlanta. Eight people killed. The suspect was caught quickly, cameras seem to offer ample proof that he did it and acted alone. Terrible crime. But it is being used politically for some reason. The white house is involved, FBI is involved, the media is in full force on it. Why? It's not "ongoing" it's over and the bad guy is caught.
Compare this to another recent terrible crime that received almost no media attention:
Yes fewer people were killed but most of those killed were children which by itself is a terrible crime. But why the difference? Where is the white house offering help? Where is the televised press conference?
A quick look at who was shot and who the perp is answers all those questions. In the first example it was a white man who committed the crime and it was Asians who were shot. In the second example it was a black man who committed the crime and black people who were shot. Simply put there is no racialist value to the left in the second incident while the first incident can be 'mined' for propaganda.
You will not be surprised to know that the press is doing their job, that is to drum up racism, anti-whiteness and anti-religion. The press asked if it was racially motivated and were greatly disappointed to find it that it is not. No worries the Atlanta mayor insists that it is of course racially motivated. The press asked if the suspect had a religious reason for the shooting and the police said that does not seem to be the case which sorely disappointed the MSM as they were clearly hoping for a religious motive.
Sadly for the press and the left it seems to simply be a nutcase who killed not because of racism or religion BUT don't worry, it will still be framed as a hate crime and the suspect will still be accused of having a religious motive.
What are you talking about? The guy was obviously a Trump supporter acting on Trump's orders to go out and attack Asians. I mean, he's white, ain't he? What more evidence do you need?
Another aspect of this story that will probably be ignored is that a lot of the women are the victims of sex trafficking brought in from Asia. They get recruited with fake stories of the jobs they will get in America, and then once they get to the U.S. they realize they have been duped and are there for other purposes.
Now that a court has ruled that the Secretary of State violated the law by usurping legislative powers, can we expect examinations into the same question raised in other states like Georgia where the Secretary of State unilaterally changed the signature-matching requirement? And if so, will these people get a severe finger-wagging or a sternly-worded letter as punishment for their having violated the law and the Constitution in order to rig the election?
Remember how there was zero proof of election irregularities? How us Trumpers were just blowing normal democrat election rigging out of proportion? Nothing to see here, move along.
There is a news story out today by the ADL that white supremacist propaganda is at an all time high. SO i read the article and it seems that hanging a banner "Make America Great Again" is white supremacist propaganda. As is anything that rejects the LGBTQ agenda. I don't understand that last one because it would seem logical and reasonable to me that if it is a 1st amendment right to be pro-LGBTQ it has to be a right under the 1st amendment to be anti-LGBTQ.
But at this point I was wondering why the ADL was concerned and finally they added that there were some anti-Semitic comments as well. BUT, seriously ADL, have you looked at what BLM and ANTIFA have been saying? Talk about blatant anti-Semitism.
I think that the ADL has been co-opted and is now "woke".
So, you think the ADL has just "now" been co-opted? Where have you been for the past twenty years?
re Harvard's Plan to Blot Out the Sun Is a Great Idea, Says Bill Gates
Why go to all that bother? All they have to do is take all the pollution controls off of everything and we can be just like China. They have lots of particulates in the air blocking out the sun.
Gates' arrogance and ignorance is breath taking. he thinks he knows what he doesn't know. The planet does not have a thermostat that can be dialed up and down on a whim.
Warming is good. Throughout history civilization has prospered during the warm times weakened during cold periods.
Plants do well in warm weather, but if it cools off very much at all, food crops do poorly.
Humanity survived previous warming cycles
Projects that forecast dire effects from the current warming receive Government funds, but no funds for answers about the causes of previous warming cycles that occurred before the Industrial Revolution 1760 – 1840.
they dont want happy, productive, prosperous. they are the antichrist . dragging down civilization into the behavior sink
There are uncounted millions of illegal aliens living in the U.S. Why? Because some people benefit from it. Farmers, restaurants, contractors and of course politicians. But recent stats have shown that about 10,000 plus deaths are caused by illegal aliens. Why isn't that news? Our government knows this and they believe that the benefit they get from having slave labor and Democrat voters exceeds the harm or 10,000 dead deplorables. The problem here is our government is run by sociopaths. They don't care about Americans OR America. They care about power and looting the treasury.
Who knew that they had this much money laying around. Wait! Don't they depend on donations and then use that money to do charitable work? Something doesn't smell right here.
Reminds me of a meme I just saw from facebook. Some young guy begged in a facebook posting for someone to "lend" him $5000 to pay his tuition. Then a relative (uncle I think) paid it for him. A few days later he posts pictures on facebook braging about his new tattoo. The uncle felt a little taken advantage of.
OK this is funny.
I think what this means is that our MSM and the Biden administration is faking Biden's appearances. Why would they do this? Well of course the obvious reason is because he can't physically or mentally make these appearances but as president he MUST because he cannot afford to appear to be unable to function. I think Biden has weeks left before he must be removed from office.
Does Joe Biden actually exist? They've done wonders with the DeepFake Tom Cruise:

Re: California Judge takes custody away from Mother
This article has a big problem: it doesn't say the name of the Judge. That could be for a couple of reasons. The first is that Washington D.C. is planning to suspend Habeus Corpus. Perhaps anti-government protestors will be sent to camps. The second possibility is that Washington is trying to set a new precedent:the nameless decision. That will soon be followed by the A.I. decision. That way, nobody has to answer any questions. Either way, it means trouble. If we have nameless Judges, then we'll also have nameless Police, and nameless tax authorities. And then nameless kids, and a nameless country.
