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.

When Will America Reach Peak Insanity?
Democrats' Statue Removal Fetish Is Clinically Insane
Tucker Carlson's interview with Kyle Rittenhouse is fascinating
BIDEN HITS THE PANIC BUTTON AS WHITE HOUSE CIVIL WAR INTENSIFIES

The statue removal makes perfect sense in the context of a Marxist/communist revolution. In fact all of the terrible things we have endured since Biden stole office make perfect sense in that context. The Gulags for the political prisoners who opposed the steal, Tha massive rush through our borders of replacement voters, the riots where middle class people and businesses are targeted. The anger that an innocent honest person escaped the politically motivated lawfare. The chaos resulting from releasing violent criminals into middle class communities. it all makes sense if you understand they want to crush America and destroy it when it is on it's knees. Get ready, everything will be worse in 2022.
"When Will America Reach Peak Insanity?"
When Leftists push to legitimize pedophilia. Oh wait...
Re: Why people are moving to Texas (or other conservative states)
Is anybody else enjoying the fact that Dame Nancy is moving from San Francisco, a city in a state where both have amazing weather, scenery, and cultural venues but has also fully embraced her policies, to Florida which is run by one of the most conservative Republicans with policies that are pretty much diametrically opposed to hers?
We now have an idea of just how committed to those policies she actually is.
I am going to start searching for an Eisenhower-Nixon bumper sticker for the pickup!!
A depressing and enlightening read; http://www.libertystorch.info/2021/11/23/a-walking-corpse/ you may disagree or not like what you read there but it would be difficult to come up with a real argument to dispute it.
The Lack of a Motive in the Waukesha Mass Murder Case Points to a Motive
Here’s something I can say with confidence: If Brooks supported any right-leaning cause, his social media history would be all over the news and there would be no shortage of people assigning political motivations to what he did. We only have to look at the Kyle Rittenhouse case to know that’s true, as media figures are still calling him a “white supremacist” despite no evidence to support that idea. Instead of investigating Brooks, though, The Daily Beast put out a hit piece on Ngo for daring to do his job.
Yet, in the case of Brooks, we know he was a black supremacist who had openly racist political views. But the police aren’t even going to hint at a motive? Yeah, I’m not buying that at all.
We know, per the admission of law enforcement, that Brooks committed his horrible act on purpose. Contrary to the false assertions by CNN, he was not “fleeing” another crime scene. He intentionally drove through barricades and “zig-zagged" to hit the most people. That’s not speculation. That’s what’s in the charging documents.
Now, perhaps it’s just a coincidence that a black nationalist with openly racist views drove 30 minutes to one of the whitest, most Republican areas of Wisconsin to plow into a parade, but if it is, then authorities need to provide another explanation. At the very least, they should be updating the public on whether he’s talking or not. Instead, I find their silence on any possible motive to be absolutely deafening.
With Brooks belonging to a minority terrorist organization, it now falls on the DOJ-CRS to head off much media coverage of his deeds. Conservative tree house has more on DOJ-CRS. The DOJ-CRS only functions to minimize the damage done by the dysfunctional minority tribes.
In San Francisco it is now frowned upon to refer to the miscreants as "looters". It seems the looters are wearing out the "looters" tag. More work for the DOJ-CRS.
All guilty of murder in the Arbery trial. I could see this coming. It's a shame because I believe these men were only guilty of being stupid. You do not have a right to defend property and furthermore if you are armed and the robber assaults you, and tries to take your gun you do not have a right to defend yourself. Simple as that. Submit!
Much of the evidence was suppressed. One of the defendants actually saw Arbery enter and case the house two weeks prior to the shooting. The DA had to recuse himself because he had previously put Arbery on trial for prior robberies. Arbery wasn't "jogging" there is sufficient video tape of him casing the neighborhood in the past looking for opportunities to commit robbery. And on the day he was shot he did in fact enter the house looking for something to steal and was walking when he got there and walking when he left UNTIL the two men went after him and only then did he jog to get away. Arbery was mentally ill and had a long criminal record but this was not allowed into the trial.
I predict all three men will be killed in jail within a year.
You have to wonder what there was to steal at that construction site; any tools would have been locked up, the only things easy to steal would be two-by-fours, nails, and maybe some electrical or plumbing bits. Hardly anything that could be fenced or traded. I can't imagine any drug dealer (for instance) accepting a sheet of drywall in exchange for a couple of grams. WTF would a dealer need that crap for. Can't imagine a hooker wanting a couple of pipe elbows for couple of blows. So what was he intending to steal, and why?
Was he a kleptomaniac? Just stealing for the thrill of it? Is there a culture of stealing from The Man, just for the fun and excitement? It's certainly no way to earn a living.
Some sort of mental or psychological perturbation I guess.
Darwin smiles, maybe.
If I remember correctly thee was some valuable stuff stolen in the weeks and months before this incident.
I thought right from the start that more statues would be a better solution than fewer. We only recognise a small fraction of deserving citizens anyway, and there are decent artists who could use the work.
Just look at jacobin the socialists about page. Chris Hayes and
Chomsky giving glowing praise. These people at jacobin want to strip property rights. Where is their outrage that Biden is receiving a gift of a Nantucket vacation. An estate like that rents for 50 grand a night. Honest people do not do this. He has a $3MM house in Rehoboth. This makes no sense. Complete arrogance. Joe Biden is an arrogant prick.
One of my neighbors who is 87 YO had her purse stolen out of her car. She just got back from the store and was bringing in a bag of groceries when some young punk opened her car door and took her purse. She yelled at him and he took off running. She got into her car and tried to chase him down but he got away. Good thing he got away because according to the Arbery trial she would have been guilty of chasing down a jogger and if she was able to stop him she would have been guilty of false imprisonment and if either she or he killed the other she would have no defense because she instigated the action and he would be within his rights to kill her. Prove me wrong.
I don't know if this is caused by lingering Trump Derangement Syndrome or mere stupidity, but our health care "hero's" have gone off the rails. A hospital in Chicago was trying to convince the family to pull the plug in a covid patient who had no chance to survive. They refused to give a dying man Ivermectin because there are potential side effects like dizziness etc. Seriously what the hell is going on in this country? The good news is the judge forced them to treat him with Ivermectin and he quickly recovered from his death bed.
