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.

First: Global Warming.
Then: Climate Change.
Now: Climate Emergency.
Next: Climate Infrastructure.
Then: Whatever other lie the Leftists want.
The names get changed as / when it becomes impossible to answer the increasing numbers of people asking to review the evidence supporting the claims. It's a dead-end argument and they're running out of credible descriptors. Hard to build up desperation when this iteration is "Emergency" What's next, "Climate Catastrophe", "Climageddon" ? Michael Mann's 'Hockey Stick' prognostication has been debunked, and now dismissed, because he refused to share his supporting data, even when court-ordered. The only "Emergency" in the climate crisis world is the looming loss of meal-ticket grants.
I made a mistake.
Should have gone back further.
First: Coming Ice Age.
Cheese is racist? Only the runny cheeses...
Climate Emergency: Well, since it has been going on since our planet had an atmosphere, an "emergency" it AIN'T!

A Black Army Rises to Fight the Racist Right
A man calling himself Grandmaster Jay has raised a disciplined, heavily armed militia. It has yet to fire a shot at its enemies, but it’s prepared for war.
I would argue the man is a nut case. One wonders why The Atlantic thought him worthy of an article?
Its modus operandi is to deploy a more fearsome Black militia wherever white militias dare to appear.
So, a fantasy first person shooter between fantasy outfits.
COVID: We're in a 'Perpetual Pandemic' With No End in Sight
"Pandemic" means a world wide event, a concept that escapes the myopic view of most here who can't see beyond how muh rights are violated by masks. Covid will remain a pandemic for years until vaccines are widely available world wide.
In the US it will become an endemic disease with infections from visitors to the country, illegal immigrants and from the virtue signaling muh rights crowd, but not a serious epidemic because, thank the gods that the internet is not a reflection of the actual public and the vaccination numbers and recovery immunities are climbing, which will keep the waves down to a manageable level as the country reopens.
n. A serious situation or occurrence that happens unexpectedly and demands immediate action.
n. A condition of urgent need for action or assistance.
Unexpected, urgent need for action? So, like a summer thundershower; not really unexpected, and only urgent for a very short time. Maybe the Texas Snowpocalyse counted, maybe?
2 minute video. 2 dogs on surfboard with their master and they do tricks.
I wonder if the dogs are having fun?
The Truth About 'Papa John' Schnatter.
The real "truth" about John Schnatter is that the pizza delivery business is based on an illegal business model. Young people are victimized by Schnatter. Let me explain: People who work for Uber or Lyft are covered by the company's auto insurance when they make a food delivery. Plus they receive a fee for the service they provide. But people who deliver food for Papa John's and Dominoes are forced to depend on their own car insurance, even though they are making commercial deliveries. Those pizza companies tell the drivers to take the sign off of their car as quickly as possible if they get into a car accident, and not to tell the Police the truth.
Schnatter takes advantage of young people, so I don't really care what happens to him.
