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.

Daylight Savings Time comes early this year.
Grievance Training at ASU. One student complains, and gets into trouble. LGF. His grievance doesn't work! The irony is just too much. I bet he's one of those sub-human white heterosexuals whose grievances don't count, because he has the wrong skin color.
Imam: Italy will be a Moslem state. Gateway
They call this a college education. Durham in Wonderland
Shrinkwrapped looks at Samuelson's piece on Universal Health Care
How come nobody talks about the sun. Well, they do, but it's the wrong "narrative". Classical Values. The correct narrative is "Western Civilization is evil."
The importance of amateurs. American.com. Heck, at Maggie's Farm, Amateurs Is Us.
The Moslems will be watching this party: Clinton and Edwards vye for pro-Israel money
Immigration Fees, from the WaPo:

It's Friday and I remembered to take the garbage out last night..He man stuff!!
Daylight Savings Time, Ben Franklin....the early arrival this year was announced at least two years ago but the guy at a major regional bank, Suntrust, does the head slap and duh,"I hadn't heard" oh well, I'll keep my money under the mattress.
Finally Superbowl predictions Bear 27, Colts 20 ...story of game..Manning's big game gag reflex returns as Rex Grossman throws short,long, and in between as the Bears defense mauls the Colts. Game not as close as score reflects.
THE REAL BUZZ IN THE MEDIA IS:
Bill Arkin columnist for the WaPo has in the past two days created a firestorm of personal hate for himself...why?
The idiot writes a piece SLAMMING OUR MEN AND WOMEN IN IRAQ AS HAVING IT TOO GOOD, ETC,ETC.
I followed it last night on the net after being alerted by Fox News. Justifiably the guys has received thousands and thousands of hate filled emails, death threats (don't worry I thru one in for the group, I think I used E. Lassiter Chandler VI as the signon).
His original column I am sure is available but I read his non apologetic follow up last night in the WaPo..if you feel like your coffee isn't getting you started this A.M. read some of what this maniac is saying.
Are you referring to a tennis match, of some sort? Doubles teams? Or is it mixed doubles?
I done sprained my index finger and I will sue you for this, Bird Dog.
.no tennis match old boy.
I like Habu was alerted by Fox News on this chap..a real scoundrel with no peerage.
No doubt went to some drug infested public school, where the girls are trollips and the boys can't do math but can do meth.
This part of Bill Arkins rant has already been pulled from circulation but THIS IS UNREAL:
Someone in DC get a noose fitted for this guy.
I asked Mr. Arkin in my response a few thoughtful questions, such as:
Did he realize people knew where he lived?, where his wife might work?,where his kids went to school?
There are a good many veterans around the DC area who I am confident will be gunning for this guy.
Arkin's Meltdown on National Review
Sleeper Cells in the United States and Canada
from the American Thinker
This is gonna be Peyton Manning's game, sez a hundred bucks. The gods of the AIR just swept over Florida, giving a foreshadow of long, looping, run-under-it air bombs.
Arkin is an associate of Greenpeace and Human Rights Watch. Assigning him to the military-affairs desk, WaPo might as well have hired Charley Manson to run its PR Dep't.
Are you keeping track of how many times we try to click the play button on the picture?
I was reading the ASU story and following some of the links and I ended up here.
The professors' name is Myra Marx Ferree!
Ya gotta wonder if that is actually what her parents named her.
Darn it. I read the links, have a 'serious' response, and by the time I get to this comment box, someone has messed me up.
haha..... "Myra Marx Ferree" ?? har har... Yes, what a revolting story.
I don't know through your links if you picked it up, but Arkin published on his blog at 5:40 A.M. an article that actually had an apology in it. At around 9 P.M., that article was gone and replaced with a much nastier response. This was yesterday.
One blog posted his address and phone numbers. He lives in Vermont. All I can say is I hope the phones in the subscription department at WaPo are ringing off the hook with cancellations.
I just thought of something on par with this stupid sensitivity training. The opposite: Hazing or ratting, designed to make you a cohesive unit. I spent my adolescent years in norther NY state and my parents thought I should be sent to a private southern girls' college in SC, home of my ancestral plantation and dysfunctional ancestors who were real white and drank a lot of bourbon. I was instantly labeled by all these sweet southern prima donnas in their pastels and Pappagallos as "Damn Yankee". Ratting started the morning after we all arrived and went on for three days. I can tell you, unequivocably, there is no more mercurial human on the planet than a southern white girl with power. Even without power they have it. The hazing/ratting went on all day and night and it was merciless. I recall one girl having to give birth to a nation in the outdoor amphitheater while the rest of us sang 'The Battle Hymn of the Republic'. I broke down late in the second day because of the intense yelling by the "Almighty Commissioners", and they left me alone after that though I had to participate.
Here is what is sad. After is was over and whatever slimey peace was made about how the hazing was done to bring us all together and everyone hugged, we freshman either moved on or remained a bit stunned. I was one of the 'ruined'. I saw one of the Almighty Commissioners in regular clothes in the student union a few days later and she asked how I was doing, and like a sheep, I responded, "I'm fine, Almighty Commissioner." She laughed and said that was over, and I was horribly embarrassed that it had come out me, but more than embarrassed, I was ashamed.
How easy it is to subjugate the human mind. ugh...
Daylight Savings Time is a huge screw up for many, many industries and workers. And trying to discuss it with folks who insist that they like the extra hour of daylight or who believe that it saves energy is sooooo frustrating.
Ok folks. This is good--maybe now the story I have been telling will start to get some credibility. The liberal fem/nazi network at ASU is directly linked to the same group in Seattle. In fact this play acting came from the same private school in Seattle that processes African/American student loans in such a way as to assure that those students are never held accountable for repayment of their student loans, and guess what? Yup the president of the small Seattle liberal arts college(lesbian), who issued that order to process is a graduate of ASU. Want to know more? Her Ph.d. research and thesis was done on how to finance minority educations.
Now, here is where it gets even better: the new president of ASU a straight white guy, who has built his career by being in support of everything the fem/nazis propose, is a past roommate of another new president of a major university--the new president of University of Washington. Yup, you guessed it another straight white guy, who built his career the same way. Both men became president of a major university within two years of each other. Both men are quite young to be university presidents, and have had their career path to the top greased by someone. The president of ASU, and the president of the University of Washington were roommates after college working in some part of the DC beltway. Amazing co-incidence isn't it?
AP you forgot to mention the connection between ASU, the governor of AZ, and the last female governor of NJ.
Yes, and also the relationship of both presidents to NJ.
I once saw an adult white male (balding, and middle aged) a mid level manager at a large company, be told to sit in class with a large red ball on his nose (the kind the clown's wear). He was in this same course as we read about at ASU. Only he was at the small liberal college that started the program (Seattle). This was being done to returning adult students, who had enrolled in a MA degree at night school. He had to go along, or the local fem/nazi network would have made his life hell on earth in the workplace. Which reminds me, someone tell that kid to get a damn good attorney from out of state--he'll need the money to make up for the damage they will do to his career (just for sport). It seems that women in leadership roles are unable to keep from kicking a guy once he is down. A quality that men have taught themselves not to do.
da broads dat try dat nose ball crap. yuz take up real close one by one and yaz whisper tuz 'em
"look toots I say'n dis once. you even look at me and your face is gonna look like strawberry jam and you ain't gonna be able to put toothpaste on a brush" capice?
