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.

"Compassionate politicians"? From a piece at Coyote:
I hate it when politicians are called "caring" or "compassionate" when the sole evidence for this is the fact that they take my money and give it to someone else or build something with it that they can put their name on.
What's wrong with being rich? Obviously, nothing. National Post. But in Canadanistan, they seem to find that subject controversial. (h/t, SDA)
The IgNobel Prize and the science of smelly feet: Worstall
The UN is a corrupt sewer, it is incapable of ANY moral leadership, it is institutionally pro-terror, it is anti-Semitic to the core, it is rabidly anti-American, and the election of Mr. Moon will hopefully bring about its total eclipse.
We need a forum for democratic nations - for those who uphold pluralist values - and the UN has moved SO FAR away from its original mission that it really is time to drive a stake through its rancid heart. The anglosphere nations should leave it and stop bankrolling this most hateful of organisations. History will record the UN as being even worse than the League of Nations.
