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.
Our News Junkie is still at sea. Here are a few of my gleanings today.
A word on evil, capitalist Peach barons. Sippican. Big Peaches once ran America, back in the day. Then it was Big Prunes, then Big Tobacco, then Big Oil, and now - Big Blogs, like us, rule the world and, indeed, the cosmos itself.
Oddly enough, and despite all the green rhetoric, EU emissions have been RISING even as US emissions have been FALLING. And even worse for the eco-wacko's, the carbon credits so beloved of so many, have been shown to be at best environmentally neutral, if not an outright fraud. And with China and India very clear that they will NOT be restricting their economic growth to keep Angela happy, the ambitions of Merkel and her socialists cronies can be seen to little more than hot air.
That new blog looks very interesting. I know I'll be there often.
The dais was filled with great names, accomplished men all. It was difficult but I went with Aristotle. The scope of his influence is unrivaled. His most notable student, Alexander the Great conquered the known world, and yet showed the Aristotilian insight that he learned from his first introduction to Aristotle at thirteen.
I do believe I would have added René Descartes to the list.
