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.
Thanks for the DeSantis stories. Wondering why the Sheriff of Lee County where Ian made landfall said "hundreds dead", it's part of the get DeSantis narrative. Hopefully it turns out to be false. And the sheriff is originally from Long Island, New York.

There's no way to know the death toll at this point. But even if true, that doesn't mean DeSantis is at fault. Only if he neglected his duty or made avoidable mistakes should he be held responsible. As Forrest Gump said, "It happens."
We can’t blame Biden for wiping out $9 trillion dollars! But don’t worry, it’s not like we’re in a recession.
Along with shaking up the White House economic team, they can pass another multi-trillion inflation reduction bill. I wonder why people are worried about a Great Depression? We’re still in the roaring 20’s!
Radical DOJ Lawyer Kristen Clarke Targeted Pro-Life Dad and Other Conservatives
Clarke considers her calling in Biden’s Justice Department one of score-settling for past decisions, holding contemporaries responsible for historical injustices, and chasing ghosts of the past.
She greenlit the federal case against Mark Houck, a Pennsylvania Catholic pro-life author,
. . . And it was Clarke who reached into the past and pulled out the more-than-a-year-old discredited case against Houck, whom a pro-abortion protester accused of “attacking” a man escorting abortion seekers. But that’s not how it went down. That story was such a put-up job that even Pennsylvania authorities threw out the case against Houck because it didn’t pass the smell test.
. . . The end game of the FACE act is financially ruining the perp and locking him up in one of Merrick Garland’s political gulags.
