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.
Big Brother arrives in Orwell's UK. One camera per 14 people. Do the Brits know how sick this is? Why don't they try for one-on-one cameras, like the book? If I were David Cameron, I would run on removing them all, re-arming the citizenry, eliminating immigration, and tossing the EU into the smoking pit of hell... and using all the money they would save to build a decent Royal Navy.
And, speaking of the UK, can you believe they let the EU tell them what to do with their garbage? Complete weenies. We threw the Brits out of here because they put a tax on tea.
Name 10 private for-profit businesses that make a quality product or service. Gee, how about Apple, Sony, Toshiba, GE, Home Depot, UPS, Wal-Mart, etc. etc. You get the idea. Now name 10 government run agencies that provide a quality service. Gee there's the post office, uh no, not really. DMV? no. VA hospital? no. Amtrak? no. OK, name one.
But, speaking of women, according to the UN Human Rights Commission, Israeli women are the most oppressed. Why? They don't do military services in tanks. Which is worse, the EU or the UN? Get rid of both of these jokers.
Photo: Gwynnie claims to have taken this photo at his bird feeder, but I view it as a powerful argument in favor of global warming, wherever he took it. There is nothing at all wrong with wet tee-shirts, as long as you aren't a Mullah or an Imam or whatever. Not to worry. She will put her burkha on later.

Your link worked for me LFS Jr. What a travesty. Apparently the judge only considers what one might do in the future. The actual crime one has committed has no bearing on sentencing. Whatever happened to punishment for the crime itself?
Well, a casual study of life here and the "news" about it, if you plan to do a crime, get a badge first.
Red light runner--odds-on OPD. Speeder--OPD.
After Elkhorn lost a bitter battle to try to avoid annexation, reports that restaurants refused to serve the occupying forces.
Except that it apparently never happened.
Some folks can run a red light, destroy a person's car, injury the person severely, and guess who pays for it all?

They kept to a pace of about 70 miles per hour, even though the posted limit is 55 on the stretch of Interstate 295 that leads to Drumthwacket, the governor’s official mansion in Princeton, where Mr. Corzine will spend the next stage of his recovery."
Does ANYONE in NJ have anything that even "remotely" resembles a Brain?
