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 Official. Democrats Say Gov DeSantis Is The New Hitler
Display comments as (Linear | Threaded)
Bad enough that they're calling DeSantis worse than Hitler, I've heard some people are suggesting he might even be worse than Trump.
They are worried DeSantis might be the next president if they don't do something to stop him. Start hating him now and beat the rush.
They have been calling Republican candidates/presidents "Hitler" going back to Wendell Willkie.
Ahh, there's the Progressive Boston of my youth. The School Board dictates classrooms must have their windows open in the dead of winter to combat the dreaded virus that leaves healthy children virtually unaffected (We have a plan for that, trust us, it's science). Now that they're all open, we're off to our protest of Global Warming and those evil fossil fuel companies.
Read the story of the fake Whitmer kidnapping plot and compare it with what we are learning about the J6 event. It certainly appears that the J6 event was planned and pushed by the FBI as a false flag attack against Trump supporters. Now Merritt Garland is in charge of the coverup. Where's Bob Woodward and Bernstein?
Don’t forget Russiagate where, among other shenanigans, an FBI lawyer falsified evidence (was caught, convicted, and almost given a slap on the wrist).
Remember Ruby Ridge? Waco? In 1971 a FBI field office was broken into and they were exposed keeping detailed records of American citizens. What was their involvement in the assassination of MLK? JFK? Remember how they tried to pin the Olympic bombing on Richard Jewel? These are just a few of their bad actions that come to mind. How many people are rotting in jail do to their criminal activities? Why can the government agents lie to you with impunity? The FBI has a long history of nefarious activities, often involving citizens that the Federal government doesn’t like. Have they become the police force of the Deep State? I think it is long passed time to get rid of them.
Good point. The unresolved discrepancies in that event are huge. There were clearly more than one shooter. Various eye witnesses in various places saw or heard another shooter so they may have been 2,3,4 shooters. His room where supposedly 1000's of shots were fired had few spent shells laying around. The audio proves that more than one gun was fired at the same time. There were some cases of bullets hitting victims foreheads perfectly, could be coincidence, could have been targeted. For some reason as soon as the feds took over the narrative changed and little to no info came out. Then the mystery of the shooters home being destroyed??? To many unexplained parts to this story but total silence from the FBI.
>Where's Bob Woodward and Bernstein?
The real question is where are the honest (or even disgruntled) FBI agents? Woodward and Bernstein were just the mouthpieces for Mark Felt.
OTOH, after Snowden, Rich (doesn't really matter if true or not), etc., it would take some guts
The FBI has been provoking crimes for a long time. Back in the Nineties, I was on a federal jury where some poor boat owner was being tried for tax evasion or potential tax evasion...or something. The boat owner had been looking for a sunken wreck which supposedly carried lots of gold coins. The FBI sent an agent to befriend the guy and offer him some kind of magnetic equipment for finding sunken gold. It was a setup from the start and the boat owner never did anything wrong. The jury had to listen to the federal prosecutor present "evidence" for three days; It was so bad that those of us on the jury were actually laughing in the jury box. After closing arguments, the judge summarily dismissed the case without sending it to the jury.
Jeez, does making close to a mil a year make you stupid? UM's former President Mark Schlissel was apparently oblivious to the fact that workplace romances are glaringly obvious to even the most amateur student of human behavior. Combine that with envy, jealousy, and hubris, and it was inevitable that someone would drop a dime on this bozo, so he could get whacked with his own policy stick.
My old Sarge's admonition still rings true: Never let your little head do the thinking for your big head.
Joe Biden said today in honor of MLK that the voting rights bill will protect the sacred right to vote. WTF! That takes balls. Imagine you steal a national election by cheating on tens of millions of votes and everyone sees it, everyone sees the videos of the ballots being delivered surreptitiously at 4 AM and suit cases of ballots being pulled out after the count was ended under trumped up circumstances and on and on. The evidence is overwhelming. The witnesses who made statements under oath were covered up. The vote counters had their employees block the windows. The evidence is so huge you could see it from space. And a professional liar can go on national TV and tell you with a straight face that the voters rights bill will protect the sacred right to vote. What balls on this fake president!!!
A commenter on Instapundit raised a good question: All the concerns for voters being suppressed, denied access to the polls, shouldn’t there be hundreds of thousands of cases going through the courts? You can vote for anyone you like, just so long as it is a democrat.

Can you provide specifics?
Apparently the UN is giving "immigrants" an ATM card to finance their immigration from any country in the world through South America and Mexico into the U.S. The UN is financing an invasion of the U.S.!! These immigrants who claim to be penniless but have new sneakers, clothes and backpacks flying, riding and walking for months to get here are being paid to invade our country by our "friends" in the UN. Why isn't this a headline?

As a child who came of age in the 70's, I've been asking the same question as Matt Taibi for the last 2 freakin' years!
Data has revealed that a stunning 59 percent of Democrats want to see their fellow Americans citizens forced into isolation and confinement if they are unwilling to take Big Pharma’s COVID-19 vaccines, with 45 percent endorsing the idea of quarantine camps for the unvaxxed.https://thenationalpulse.com/2022/01/17/data-nearly-50-of-democrat-voters-want-camps-for-the-unvaccinated/
Now I want to see those 59% of democrats enforce those wishes. They feel "daring" pounding on a keyboard and texting but it is far different than having to pick up a gun and enforce that BS.
Have you ever wondered as you watch the police and other authorities round up and manhandle all these people who supposedly are a danger to the vaxxed??? If they are so dangerous why would they tackle them and handcuff them and transport them and even fight with them? Seriously if I had to arrest and bring in a suspect with a highly contagious and deadly disease I would do it at gun point with them staying 50 feet from me (or 6 feet if you are dr. Fauci).
I don't get the impression that anyone is really worried about catching covid from them they all know this is kabuki theater and are playing their part.
It is nothing but theatre performed for the benefit of power hungry politicians. If you are unvaccinated you can get covid, die of covid, and pass covid. If you are Vaxxed you can get covid, die of covid or the Vaxx, and pass on covid. It was never more than a power play for control and money.
I think they just want us locked up. Period.
At various times I have read where they want us locked up for being 'climate deniers', spreading more than our fair share of carbon, for being 'white supremecists', having a contrary opinion and spreading 'disinformation'.
Who knows if they will ever really try, but it is an indication of how much they fear and hate us.
