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.

Re: Kids need to be literate before they are taught "antiracism": The problem is, by then it might be too late.
Once again our nation's five and six-year olds are refusing to act in the way that educational theorists insist that they should.
"If someone is smoking two packs a day, is the doctor guilty of an "anti-smoking bias"? If they insist on having promiscuous unprotected sex, are the doctors "slut shaming" them?"
Now, that's funny right there, using logic and reason. The doctor is guilty of whatever we say the doctor is guilt of, and will be punished according to our rules*.

Ukraine bill, very disappointed in my 2 Florida senators and local Republican representative, ex naval aviator, which tells me he's on or will be on a defense contractor's payroll. Sen Scott sounded like a Democrat about Russia this and that on his press release. Didn't bother looking up Rubio's, most likely more of the same. Grifters. Don't look for any dramatic changeover in November.
Another school shooting and the MSM report on it 24/7 and the Democrats use it to try to take away rights of innocent and honest citizens. It is odd that we had 1000 times more killed by illegal drugs made in China and brought into our country across a porous border. Last year there were close to twice as many drug deaths as there were deaths in Vietnam over a 15 year period. But drug deaths are ignored and in fact Democrats facilitate drug use and deaths. Why aren't those drug deaths important?
FBI top brass fired up ... the best coverage I have found on the Russia, Russia, Russia hoax is from the Conservative Tree House. The hoaxers need years in jail with lifelong probation and cancel ALL their government retirement benefit
22 house repubs demand accountability ... until ALL of the GOP leadership is replaced there will be no accountability for spending. Far too many grifters in both parties that do all too well by accommodating the lobbyists.
Trump shouldn't run ... wrong, he is the only candidate capable of standing up to the thieving wokers and tokers including the problem children in his own party. Drive on!!
"why Trump shouldn't run" "Although many Americans cringed, we nonetheless put up with Trump’s coarseness and his inflated ego because he gave America back to the people".
Seriously! Trumps ego and coarseness is worse that Pelosi or Shiff? Or Schumer or Pressley or any Democrat politician?
Yes, the Establishment head-wagging commences, the 'more-in-sorrow-than-in-anger' explanations why losing gracefully is actually a preferable tactic to winning. Keep careful track of who these are for future reference when they change their hats again. Heaven forbid the smelly, ignorant masses do their own thinking about leadership and demand transparent, efficiently-run elections (PA).
How many of Trump's preferred candidates have failed the primary runoffs? I think the Georgia Governor is one. Any others?
(Sorry, Candidate for Governor, Perdue. And SOS Raffensperger also won the primary.)
I will acknowledge that Kemp seems to have won easily over perdue. However there is something fishy about the voting in Georgia an unbelievable turnout reminiscent of voting fraud. Almost as though the Democrats wanted to run against Kemp. I could be wrong about this, it is just a guess, but why the record turnout???
One other point; True the vote turned over the evidence of massive voter fraud in Georgia to Governor Kemp who decided to just sit on it AND at the same time claim over and over again that there was no evidence of voter fraud.
Don't forget Raffensperger's role in that as well as the judges refusing to take an interest. Georgia is already a one-party Blue State.
Exactly! Half a dozen states were used by the left (not "simply" Democrats) to steal the 2020 election. The politicians and judges were complicit in the steal and it truly was the crime of the century. Your/our country has been stolen from you by... we don't even know who. George Soros, Klaus Schwab, Mark Zuckerberg, and others; the great cabal of anti-constitution/anti-American conspirators who may all be acting for different reasons (money, power, hate, communism, etc.) but all intend to destroy the constitutional republic that is America. IF, we were all to simply "roll over" MAYBE it could all happen without violence. But I do not think that is possible. I think we are on the verge of civil war and it cannot help but turn violent. I believe that there has been a piecemeal approach for decades to steal our country from us and now with victory in sight that the cabal will accelerate their actions and resort to violence. I think that the J6 "lawfare" is one example of this as is the Antifa/BLM riots. The coming crash may well be the crisis to end all crises that will precipitate the left's violent takeover.
The Vaccine Death report https://www.stopworldcontrol.com/downloads/en/vaccines/vaccinereport.pdf There is a massive effort to hide this information from the public. Why would they do that? What good reason would our government of the people by the people have to hide this from us?

Will China collapse in a year?
A 13 minute video from the Eisenhower Naval School in which the case is made that China is failing simultaneously on multiple fronts, economics, demographics, agriculture and energy.
VERY interesting video.
Will China really collapse in a year? Who knows, but the red flags shouldn'y simply be waved away.
He's pretty interesting and he speaks with such authority (and to people who seemingly matter such as people in the armed forces) that he's hard to discount. And since I do not claim to have anywhere near the information or education he apparently has, I won't even try.
I have watched another video of his on the end of Chinese manufacturing which is also interesting.
There are two small points that lead me to loose some faith in his analysis. The first is that he says our schools are better than the Chinese schools. I find that highly doubtful (at least in primary education) given the comparison of the STEM capabilities of their students compared to ours. In his video on the End of Chinese manufacturing, he compares China's Wuhan flu vaccines with Moderna and Pfizer vaccines saying the Chinese vaccines were only 55% effective at preventing death while the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are 95% effective at preventing infection. That video was posted on 5/21/2022 but came from a snippet of another presentation he gave. That presentation had better have been an old one or he has lost a lot of credibility with me.
One of his major points is the demographics of China are horrible. They have to be even worse for Japan. He doesn't mention the Japanese in that context. It brought me to wonder if the "collapse" he expects China to have in the next ten years is going to look in any way Japan has "collapsed." In GDP terms, they have had a rocky period since about 1995 but the trend is still positive.
We will soon learn how well he actually understands about China since he expects it to collapse much sooner rather than later.
I hadn't had a chance to watch the entire video on the end of Chinese manufacturing and he later clarified his position on mRNA vaccines so that he makes more sense me.
I was tired of the Ukraine war on day one. Great money laundering opportunity though.
A bigger issue than transparency in drug pricing is transparency in Hospital Services.
It too was promised and is lacking.
