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.

The invaluable Brussels Journal recently translated an interview with the writer Oscar van den Boogaard from the Belgian paper De Standaard. A Dutch gay “humanist” (which is pretty much the trifecta of Eurocool), Mr. van den Boogaard was reflecting on the accelerating Islamification of the Continent and concluding that the jig was up for the Europe he loved. “I am not a warrior, but who is?” he shrugged. “I have never learned to fight for my freedom. I was only good at enjoying it.”
The Euros are still so very, very class conscious.
They have never experienced trailor trash like we have. /s The kind of trash that transcends race AND class and encompasses another of the many North American life styles. Do you get the TV show Trailor Park Boys? It is a Canadian hit that showcases trailor park life. I don't watch it much because it is so intentionally foul but it is very funny too.
Also RE: "Though bombs can shake a democracy or market economy, they cannot destroy it."
I would hate to test that theory. I think maybe they can.
