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.
The Brits are "a people." DNA confirms it. They are not a "nation of immigrants." Is it possible for a nation to retain its identity and its sense of family-like connection with massive immigration? Doubtful. Discussion at Brussels Journal
Even Nat Hentoff has had it with the UN. Close it down. As we have said many times before, nations can, and do, talk to each other anytime they want without the UN getting in the way. Just one more failed utopian dream. Moonbattery. It is painful to think that any of my money is going to support them. More at Viking.
