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.

Dem strategy: Destroy health care, so you can "save" it: Dem. Project. Right. The deal is always this: manufacture a "crisis", and have your prepared government solution in hand. What country has the highest quality medical care in the world? The US. What country produces almost all of the medical research, and new treatments, in the world? The US. What country does the rest of the world rely on for cool new medical stuff? The US. What country takes care of every sick person, regardless of money - including illegal border-crossers? The US. To what country do the prosperous around the world fly for medical treatment? The US. How do you "fix" something like that? If you want perfection, dream on...but if you want freebies, as they say, "It's your funeral."
Protection racket? Yes, that is what protectionism is - a deal for unions, and a bad deal for citizens, as we repeatedly say here. Blue Crab agrees. The unions required two items for their Dem. support this fall: min. wage increase (some union wages are pegged to it), and protectionism.
Look who's raising money for CAIR. Atlas. Are radical Moslems a new voting bloc?
How creepy are the Chinese? Very. Viking. And how come no-one complains about their liberal use of the death penalty? It's either because they are Commies, so all flaws are excused - or it's because they are beneath us, so it's expected.
The Brits need to remove those crosses from the BA tailfins - if they won't permit crosses on their employees. Via Tim Blair, at Telegraph. No crosses, please, we're British. I always was taught that it was the Devil who hated crosses.
Image: Honey, hope ya got them lime slices ready. Me don't wanna see no cold Coronas without my slices. Them dang pumpkin pies can wait. Then bring your body over here, and keep me company...while we watch them inflate those Macy's balloons.
