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.
A fertility program for gay men. Is this odd, or am I old-fashioned?
Cops can sue you if hurt protecting you. Who knew? There is something wrong with that.
Who are the victims in the Flying Imam story? Blue Crab. I would have been off that airplane in a New York minute. Sue me.
There's a sucker born every minute. A naive global warming believer gets scammed. No Looking Backwards
Does anybody likeNo Child Left Behind? I doubt it. Pejman. You can blame Bush for this usurpation of state sovereignty. For the children, of course. One of his top three costly mistakes (along with the Medicare drug program and his immigration policies).
From the moment the NCLB law was passed,and from even before it became law, the unions have been mounting their campaign against the law. From the beginning they have pushed teacher to such a hatred of the act by forcing them into unnecessary paper work requirements(state initiated)by forcing teachers to lie for to be made to feel that they are not team players. Someone, in education and politics should really do a dissertation on the organized political onslaught against this simple little effort to keep the bar from resting on the floor for an easy step over. If this act had been followed in good faith by teachers in every state some positive move toward improving our schools would have happened. But, the liberals would rather destroy our children than give acknowledgment to the fact that their unions, their demands for funding, their new educational policies of "non-meritocracy" have already destroyed our education system. Just go to a classroom where there are students from India, Japan, Korea who have just arrived--you will be stunned at what we have lost!
Hagee makes my skin crawl. I have no quarrel with his argument, but his style sucks eggs (pardon my French) . . . Reminds me of the Goracle. Isn't that sort of bellowing oratory about ready for the dustbin? Just asking.
when you browse the various carbon offset sales websites, its amazing how many of them will not give a straight forward, "we take x% for our services". Got a feeling that this will be the next spam of the day.
"out of Iraq, in to Darfur", wonder how long the same chanters start "Darfur quagmire"
