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.
This is already getting fun. Let's see if Her Holy Highness can take it as good as she can give it. Hollywood does not love Hillary, but it is fun to see people come right out and say what everyone already thinks.
She wants a coronation, but very few like her very much. What is there to like? And what has she achieved, besides sticking with a scum husband for her own ambitions?
“Everybody in politics lies,” he said, but the Clintons “do it with such ease it’s troubling.” He went on to hint that Bill still had marital fidelity issues, and that Hillary was over-produced, over-scripted, over-ambitious, stiff-necked and haughty. And then he said the worst thing a Hollywood guy could say: The Clinton Show was boring. “And I’m tired of hearing James Carville on television,” he said.
Go, Obama! I wouldn't vote for Obama because he's Left-wing, but I like the guy's hutzpah to be willing to blow a possible VP spot. He has to bear in mind that Hillary is not a girl - and she is nobody's Prom Queen.
A black opponent is her worst nightmare. And great fun for the press. The only thing the press likes more than a Dem is a good story with a byline.
There's a schism in Hollywood. It's not pretty. It was their when Bill Clinton was collecting endorsements and loot and it's their now with B.Hussien Obama and H. Rodham Clinton.
Some like to toot their cocaine the old fashion way, off the mirror with (in Beverly Hills) sterling silver straws. Others like to smoke it as crack. I suspect Hillary is an old fashion tooter and B. Hussein Obama a smoker. So you have the old and the new and if Hollywood likes one thing it's new, not old.
Bill was by all reports, mostly from now deceased people quite a cokehead. Tell me Hillary eschewed a good quality snort. Hussien we know has been into drugs, and why not admit it now it's 2007. Talk about losing wars, didn't Nixon start the War on Drugs in 1847? I don't think the anti drug forces are winning given that something like 75% of all arrest are drug related and most of those for marijuana.
You wanna know how the Republicans could turn the world unside down. Come out for the decriminalization of marijuana. Tax it and have the companies that sell it be tightly controlled......
Oh no,Oh no, it might fall inot the hands of our children....ahh Mom,Dad, this is your brain on that thought....................................................
It would reduce crime, raise revenue, and all the Republicans who smoke it would end up on prozac because they eventually become paranoid.
It would put a big dent in the trade and slow down the flow of illegal mules.
Of course that proposal will never come from the republican side..it's a gateway drug. Notice how there are now millions and millions of hard core drug users...crap ... in the old days it was booze...for that past forty years it's been reefer.
So we can keep jailing kids with a lid of dope and at the same time keep our record of consecutive war losses in tact.
Or we can go about the challenge in a different manner.
As for the cocaine. We're the worlds biggest market, that's why peasants who live on $200 a year work for the cartels..to feed our noses ....how long we been at that battle? 20,30 years? how many billions, perhaps trillions of dollars have our citizens spent on cocaine?
I don't know what the answer there is. It's a magnitude larger that marijuana. Maybe let the cokeheads and the mainliners of heroin just go ahead, have the government sell it, and we'll spend our money on human sanitation units that collect the bodies. Rehab...no rehab, just let 'em die, they well know the risks.
