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.
Readers will be happy to know that my venison mince-meat has now been properly aged and is ready to go into the pie and tart shells. What a fine smell. Lots of cranberries, and brandy this time. One pie for the pal who bowed the doe in his back yard. (We have no limit on does.)
Santa. Coke claims that they essentially invented our image of the jolly old elf. Snopes begs to differ. (thanks, reader Chuck.)
Burgoo. Ever had it? Good stuff. Right Wing Nation needs to offer a recipe. I've had it a few times. Possum, squirrel, coon, snake, whatever. And vegetables. But road-kill menu items are disappearing. Maybe the Kentucky State Troopers are picking up all the good stuff.
Al Quaida: Kill a Christian on Christmas. Jawa. The religion of peace and tolerance.
If you can understand Columbia's Lee Bollinger, you are smarter than me. What a mealy-mouthed, double-talking schmuck. Power Line. Where do universities find such lame sitzpinklers? I guess the boards want limp guys they can control.
NYC is in its prime, but these stats are not cheering. This is your future, America. From Moonbattery:
According to New York City's latest release of vital statistics, there were 88,891 reported abortions in the city in 2005. When babies were allowed to live, Medicaid paid for 52% of the births. An appalling 44% of women giving birth weren't married.
