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.

Phallus 101? I once dated a girl who must have taken that course, because she knew all about...never mind. The 12 Most Bizarre College Courses. Parents: Wise up. Your hard-earned money could be paying for some of this idiocy.
Finally, science comes up with something useful. Self-cleaning underwear.
Hillary's flaws exposed. via RCP. I think her flaws are these: She is unlikeable, unpleasant, unfeminine, and appears calculating. That's leaving out her (for me) unacceptable politics.
The more people try to live multiculturally, they more they lost trust (via A&L). Yeah, utopia is an elusive thing, ain't it? It's a no-brainer: the more you realize that someone is living by a different rule book, the warier you become. And it makes sense.
Barak Obama is an apostate. Auster
Does legal education need reform? I have no idea, but no Carnegie Foundation Report on anything would fail to include a call for reform. Reform and progress - like, groovy, Dude.
Bush tells it like it is. Scrappleface.
Medical humor You tube.
Get yer fresh, warm, high-IQ Texas white embryos here. WaPo. What's the fuss? If you can pick your eggs at the supermarket by size and color, etc - why not your embryos? I must admit, though, that I always thought that the brown and white egg thing at the supermarket was a bit racist. On moral grounds, I always buy the brown.
Creative destruction. Painful but necessary, like surgery. Dem Project looks at destruction in the newspaper biz.
Two evil, nativist, immigrant-hating proposals, that came in over the transom:

Re: self cleaning underwear. Since the hippie days of the 60's those hippies who didn't fully buy into the movement by going "commando" soon taught their offspring the proper way to dress an undergarment. Yellow in the from ,brown in the back.
Re: On Hillary appearing calculating. She is a woman, the statement is redundant.
Re: nativist plans. I 've offered that solution many times on another blog. No one reponded. Perhaps a better approach is to fill the mothballed ships with the invaders, tow them to sea and use them as articficial reefs once the bomb and torpedo practice has done it's job.
Finally exposed for the huge fraud it its. It will od course be another of the major factors in the equastion that finally takes this country down....
Unlike other times when becoming American was a prideful thing, it is now considered tha most dastardly of acts. Don't assimilate,don't learn the language, and hate whitey. Lock and load if you're a WASP cause the other cultures are spring loaded to do harm, and of course they have AQ cell leadership now as a template. Take your pick MS-13 or AQ? Russian mafia or Cocaine cowboys? Ain't a multicultural land great.
Re: Phallus 101 ..do they practice what they preach? adn is there a Pudenda 101??
Sounds like you generally agree with the tone of the posts today.
Re: Phallus 101
Are those enrolled products of schools which participated in a "Head Start" program, or did they have to bone up on the requirements?
having spent my college years desperately offering that course off-campus, or anywhere there was sufficient cover, the Law of karma sent me three daughters, so that I have to be disgusted by every little gentleman that ever calls on them. Well, the eldest is married now, so, there's that.
have we suddenly lost a big demagoguery-mining operation?
I think that is great news. Now if we can keep the illegal trafficing in amni/fluid science can go forward without hard to mother or fetus.
Do you think scientists have taken a hard enough look at whatever that is that our beloved Vienna sausage is packed in? Maybe something there for third world eugenics...(oh I am so going to Hell)
whatever it is, it's too salty for the dogs, which is a wonderment. i think it's a brine gel, much like Brylecreem.
RE: Barak Obama... now this is the most absurd maybe-wanna-be presidential candidate I can imagine at this moment in history. Perhaps when we do move to a calendar with StarDate such and such he'll have a chance but NOW?
I don't care how smoooove the guy is. But it would be really really good if the Dems nominated him. Then we could say how understanding we are about the last two out of three Democratic nominees being coke heads..really probably three for three.
I heard they use those Vienna sausages for the beginners in Phallus 101, then move up from there.
I remember my first tube like it was yesterday. A lit'l dab ul do ya.
Heck I'd squeese that stuff out like cheese whiz covering a triscuit.
Now thanks to the magic of aging I can't even get one good cornrow work'n.
Jeez, BD, that's an unfortunate image--I'll have to go to potted meat now, which requires a can-opener and a plastic spreading tool. dang.
I heard much the same except that I heard it was in the Montessori approach to learning where the child is a child. So what has happened is some have developed along the pre college track of Phallus 101 while others have learned to use them as friends by drawing faces on them and then eating them. Others use them as erasers.
One particularly progressive school in Carmel,Ca. had the children use them as Lincoln logs.
Carmel--home of Clint Eastwood, maker of top tier western "Unforgiven".
Vienna sausage has its place on hunting trips but it should yield pride of place to Spam. Don't forget the Spam sushi in Hawaii - actually it is a little sliver of fried Spam atop rice and wrapped in seaweed. There is a little deli in Aiea a few miles from the gate at Pearl that sells 'em. Damn. Those, and Oahu Plate Lunches.
That's a pretty complex comparison. Spam is definitely a more formal, 'higher' cuisine, somewhat insulted if not fried or coupled with cheese & mayo in a sandwich operation. Too, the required implements then need a post-prandial washing and put-away.
Vienna Sausage, on the other hand, is a pop-top, drain over the dog dish, dine straight from the can, 'with-a-cracker' affair.
The empty can is admittedly inferior as say a pencil holder than the spam can, whose sublime squareness is a space-saving dandy on that crowded workspace.
