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.
Not that percent, or the rule of law mean anything to the left, but keeping Trump from running in 2024, under the current circumstances, seems like a high hurdle. Consider that the Vice President of the Confederacy, Alexander Stephens, served in the US House of Representatives, from 1873 to 1882.
As a side note, Stephens was thoroughly trounced during a floor debate over the Civil Rights Act of 1875, by Robert B. Elliot. Mr. Elliot was a black congressman from S. Carolina. The floor debate was well attended by dignitaries of the day, including General Sherman. Mr. Elliot was roundly applauded at the end of his speech. The Bill, which gave blacks equal rights, except in churches, schools and cemeteries, was signed into law by President Grant on 1 March 1875. The law was gutted by the Supreme Court in 1883.
Someone used the phrase "crossed the Rubicon". I am not sure I have ever heard a more appropriate simile in my life. This is serious! The left/Democrats/communists have gone full "Bolshevik" and are out to assassinate Trump. What's next? Shooting and bayoneting Trump's children and wife in the basement of Mar-a-lago? How can we step back from what the left has just done? Can you uncross the Rubicon?
One of the several gaslighting things they do, during the weather segment, on local broadcast, is to proclaim that the day’s temperature is 5 degrees higher than the daily ‘normal’ temperature. Normal, is actually a 30 year average temperature. We don’t have any idea what the ideal, normal temperature should be. For me it would be about 64 degrees.
One of the questions Rush used to ask is if you actually had the ability to reduce the temperature, what should the temperature be.
Then, there are the brain dead ideas of people like Bill Gates to spray dust into the atmosphere to reduce the effect of the sun; an idea similar to the idea in the '70s to spray coal dust on ice caps so they would melt and combat global cooling. What could go wrong?
Karl Otto Paetel had the National Bolshevism manifesto regarding the deliberate burning down of the state by Marxist termites.
Then the people purging and burning can begin on the road to the New Man workers utopia.
Re: I'm ashamed of my white baby - it's hard to do satires of the Left these days, no matter how outrageous. When you seriously claim men can get pregnant, well, where can you go from there?
And as far as the UN honcho claiming oil companies are greedy, they may indeed be greedy but nothing like UN honchos who feel entitled to steal productive people's money. When we start putting heads on pikes, the parasites at the UN need to be near the top of the list. Right after John Kerry.
It's never too late pull your kids out of government schools. Homeschool them or encourage your children to homeschool your grandchildren. Investing in the private education of your grandchildren is a much better use of your money than another cruise or golf hobby.
