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.
As via Cramer, sci fi otherworld, disgusting, welcome too the new morality, might become a fad.
Federal Civil Service has been turned on its head. It is now nothing but inflated salaries, good benefits and early, well funded retirement. I tried but flailed too find a link to a new flood control system that Tokyo is implementing. I do remember that the pumps in this system could do 54,000 gallons per Second. Phenomenal.
SmallDeadAnimals link no worky. But Gore's cold heart for his fellow American's does seem too manifest itself in the oddest ways.l
Had seen the Sparta workout...Good stuff. Nutty actor one could say, but I admire him for effort.
Pelosi is a boor. Nothing new, nothing she wouldn't do, to further her ambitions.
As for the Greeks, see my above on Civil Servants.
Eh Gads, must I admit the French did something right?
Austin Bay, two words, "American patience." Short supply, undercut by media malfeasance.
"indeterminacy of texts"...more socialist bull-crap. See Jeff Goldstein for explanation of how our very language is being subverted.
Go La Shawn...Bill Cosby makes a lot of good points. We have to move beyond this skin color thing. Especially those of color (or whatever PC thing should be in its place.)
The NYT's is in decline. Another instance of political beliefs overriding common sense.
