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.
Wow, can't believe how early the campaigns for 2008 start. I was at the Quickie Mart, and someone left this under the wiper. Also a handprint that all the washer fluid in the Western Hemisphere can't make a dent in. Oh well, maybe this wise Cincinattus, already plowed, can shed some light onto this Obama guy and why he wants to show Behind the Green Door instead of reading Hop on Pop in kindergarten.
“These earthly godfathers of Heaven's lights, that give a name to every fixed star, have no more profit of their shining nights than those that walk and know not what they are.”
Obama, the press anointed Godfather is simply another glib socialist. Perhaps even more glib than Bill Clinton.
We have no idea of his intellectual depth and certainly his experience is not sufficient to face a Vladamir Putin across a negotiating table.
At this point it would appear that the Democrats have a leg up but in politics a day can be a lifetime and the election is downrange by another sixteen months away ..SIXTEEN MONTHS ... someone tell me what will happen in that time with unimpeachable certitude.
I say we invite Hillary and Obama to a picnic in a nice woodsy setting, a park, say Fort Marcy Park.
Fort Marcy Park was picked at random and makes no reference to any events that have ever taken place in that setting.
