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.
I mentioned in previous posts the Democratic Parties move from using socialist codewords to the term "Progressive".
It is of no small note that Nancy Pelosi, a heartbeat and failed pacemaker away from the Presidency is a card carryinf member of the Democratic Socialists of America*. I am still compiling an more inclusive list but over 70 members of the Democratic Party, including many committee chairmen are members of this organization. Here is an example of their creed and objectives. From their website.
"We are socialists because we reject an international economic order sustained by private profit, alienated labor, race and gender discrimination, environmental destruction, and brutality and violence in defense of the status quo.
We are socialists because we share a vision of a humane international social order based both on democratic planning and market mechanisms to achieve equitable distribution of resources, meaningful work, a healthy environment, sustainable growth, gender and racial equality, and non-oppressive relationships."*
For a real treat visit their website and enjoy a day with Comrade Pelosi.
CAUTION: You won't believe what they're working for, and have in mind for us.
The above site has been listed before. I HIGHLY encourage the readers to visit this site and familarize yourself with it's operation. It is a wealth of information, linking names with organizations they are affiliated with.
