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.
It's a Marxist concept...when the current definition does not meet the needs of the Marxist it is imperative to change the definition. Covid required many definition changes in order to promote a "pandemic". The new definition of vaccine in order to include the vaxx. New definition for "gain-of-function" research to try to get Fauci off the hook. Redefined cause of death to insure anyone dying that has a Covid positive test is listed as a Covid death even if they died in a meth lab explosion and redefining the cycle threshold for PCR tests. Marxists have been doing this for years whether in education, climate, gender or race. Nothing new under the sun with Marxists.
How can you argue with somebody when you don't speak the same language? I've often asserted that pumpkin promulgates the over-saturation of the middling values of the zeitgeist and therefore leads to the ramifications of the shoe leather and I've never once found anybody that can refute that statement.
People intentionally or just as a result of their craziness often tell you who they are by their dress, what they say and what they do. Take them at their word. If they are crazy, agenda driven, looking for trouble, just keep walking. I prefer to make believe I don't see them and put distance between us. The Karen's, protestors, weird, the possessed, the dispossessed and the generally undiagnosed crazies. Pink/blue hair, excessive tats and piercings, strange haircuts and/or clothing, "that look" where they are making eye contact daring you to do the same.
