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.
Americans see both Doom and Good Cheer. Huh? Patriot Post explains it.
Barney Frank is either a low-life liar, or insane. Wizbang. The former, I think. He's just trying to reinforce the theme that it's about Bush, not Nagin and that feckless governor. The deflection of responsbility has been stunningly successful. See our piece inspired by Scrappleface.
What would happen in the Middle East if they moved Israel to New Mexico? A Thought Experiment, at TCS
Andrew Cuomo, newly-elected Attorney General of NY, to open new offices of Social Justice and Economic Justice. Huh? Watch out, New York. Atlas. We need a post on this commie jerk.
Adult stem cells can grow new teeth. Just in time for me! Alpha. My amalgam-to-enamel ratio is already too high for my age.
"It's for the children, so they never have to grow up." Dr. Sanity. Exactly right. We, the government, will take care of you infantile, helpless morons.
I done seen your article on Florida dumb'n down the IQ requirements for gifted programs so mo AFRO-AMERICANS and LATINOS can qualify to get into the programs.
This is a good first step. Whitey crackers been hild'n back the Africans for over 400 years. We want reparations. It don't make no matter that trillions and trillions of dollars been done spent on making us equal, we want more.
My friend Clevon has eight beautiful carmel kids. His first three girlfriends gave him wonderful joy with these little'uns. Now lets get going on helping Clevon raise up some politicians like Jesse Jackson, Malcolm X, Congressman Rangel and Alcee Hastings.
Like I said, it's a start.
shame on you, habu. no wait, that's not quite right-- shame on the libs who so profit by the thing you lampoon.
GWB's greatest phrase: "the soft bigotry of low expectations".
Anyway, on the Israel thought experiment, New Mexico would not replace the seacoast.
The best place is Texas, the nearly empty strip of coastline between Corpus Christi and Brownsville.
It's about the same size, with a similar climate & topography more or less.
Suddenly Texas would lead the world in applied research and new patents, and we could all watch the Palis shoot each other to pieces among the deserted artifacts of Israel's 21st century liberal democratic high-tech civilization.
Oy vey..what to do with you Mr.Buddy. To be a goyfer and want a RE-SHTETLEMENT to Texas when Flaw-ra-da has beaches and condos. I yam totally farklempt and wish nisht do gedachet ( it should never happen to you).
Maybe we come to youwr house. I am sure it is heymish.
(warm and cozy)
Do you have maybe a little donation?
Vell, our beaches, tho a tad mud-colored and not quite so sparkly white as yourn, also have only a fraction of the swimmer-eating sharks doing shore patrol. so, the Texas bid will have THAT going for it!
Hey the Yiddish-a-mama don't be do'in any ocean thang. She be just do'in stuff like watch'n "Pimp My Ride" and reruns of "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" while listening to "BeBe's Greatest Speeches"
I think I've fallen deep into the stereotyping hole today.....apologies to all races,creeds,colors,pimps,ho's,poets,gun owners, women business suit wearers,Ak-47 sans clip tot'n ladies...and most of all the contributors to this blog. I guess I should go watch the playoffs and think about my attitude.
Ya know, my wife hates my sense of humor. hmmm...
but she is a much nicer person than I am.
Why just last night I started watching the first of 75 episodes of Amos 'n Andy I bought. She, having grown up in Montana saw no humor in it, ok maybe a bit.
Now show her an open pit mine or a Chief Joseph slaughter and she's fine.
I guess it's all in the geography,DNA,and that moonshine run thru da car radiator.
radiator don't take enough of the jake-leg out. go with a loaf of bread after the radiator. smush it into a foot long piece of 6" PVC first. one loaf per gallon or less if ya want fewer particulate matter.
Butte also has a nice little synagogue - probably one of the first in the Mountain states. It must seat a few hundred people. Mark Twain visited Butte in its heyday and went to the opera, which he said was very well done - as good as anywhere he had ever been, which in his case was quite a few places.
