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 Iraq rape story is beginning to sound like Duke. Confed. Yank
Wesleyan Univ - remove from your kids' college list. A once-great school, but they drank the Kool Aid years ago. Small Dead Polar Bears
IRS goes afterEBay sellers. Sorry, folks. There is no escape, unless you are rich enough to know what to do. Very rich. Since we have Death Taxes, how come the Rockefellers and Kennedys and etc. still don't need jobs? But you will not be able to hand any of your hard-earned wealth down, because you cannot afford the lawyers who arrange these things.
A cool political dirty trick from Long Island: Pester people with phone calls during the Super Bowl, ostensibly from your opponent. NY Sun
Adding to our blogroll: Above the Law. Also, something new which I think has great promise, and aims to do what independent blogs have been trying to do: Reporters without Borders. Wonder if they have a job for me.
NYC still doesn't allow dancing in bars. NYC is not exactly a Libertarian stronghold.
Homeland Security Pork. Synthstuff. My guess: 70% pork. Government works for government. Is that news?
Largest gun sales in the US? Walmart, of course. But they are cutting back. Alphecca.
Hillary still afraid that Bill will blow it for her. Newsweek.
Upset Mexicans?Too damn bad. What about our border? I am afraid that it is a two-way street.
Regarding the article on Upset Mexicans--are there any other ones? Given that Mexico is one of the world leaders in government corruption only to be matched by the great State of Illinois, I simply think that Illinois should annex Mexico. That way the border problem would be solved, Illinois would get greatly needed access to two oceans, and our Illinois politicians could have tropical resorts to visit each winter where they could count their money out among the waving palm trees.
It should be pretty simple as almost everything spoken and written in Illinois is half in Spanish anyways.
The only thing I buy at the Wal-Mart firearms counter is the 550-count .22LR Federal ammo. In my experience, those working behind the counter don't have a clue about firearms and can't give you any useful information -- and there are local gun shops I'd rather patronize.
I need a new geneologist.
Look it's only fair.
Thomas Jefferson had his lovely (I guess) Sally Hemmings.
Now we're looking at a Strom "Thunderbolt" Thurman* and AL Sharpton as PERHAPS blood kinfolk. Right now Ancestry.com is stating for the record that somewhere in the geneology of the two Mr. Sharpton's relatives were owned by Mr. Thurmonds relatives.
I need a geneologist to find out that I am related to Hank Aaron or Jackie Robinson. In a pinch Toni Braxton. And I want my cut right now, I ain't gett'n any younger. And if we can't work any of that out the I want either Nat King Cole or Johnny Mathis' voice.
*The Thunderbolt was a popular KKK tabloid back in the day.
