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.
New York Magazine invents "grups." Magazines love to invent terms like this: I guess it gets attention and sells magazines. This is about adults who don't seem fully grown up, and appear to identify more with adolescents than with real adults.
Why the trades make good, well-paid careers. At Maggie's Farm, we believe that too many people go to college (which in many cases has become extended high school anyway), and that too many people disdain good honest skilled work. Where I live in MA, you cannot find a plumber, and when you do, they charge $125. for a house call. The repair is on top of that. And, besides that, they want cash only, or they won't come back the next time.
Not in my backyard, say MA liberals. First it was the Nantucket windmills, and now it's poor people. Speaking of hypocrisy, more hate speech from the Angry Left.
Duke faculty too smart by half? RCP. I wouldn't put it that way. There is a thing called "educated fools" - rich in degrees but dumb in life. Colleges are sanitaria for them.
Palestinian Chic. Princeton loves the Palis. Why? They even hate eachother.
