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.
More on Bolton's enemies: One Janice O'Connell, a Cuba apologist on Sen. Dodd's staff. Bolton was clearly targeted, like Delay, as part of the ongoing pissing contest in DC. Novak has the details. Thanks, Powerline.
Always thought the Americans with Disabilities Act was insane. Right Thinking provides more reason to think so: a day care center run by the blind. When was common sense outlawed?
Stix rips Ellison's neo-feminism, in a piece entitled This is Your Brain on The New York Times: A sample:
Feminism’s contradictions. Back in the 1970s, feminism routinely condemned motherhood. But in recent years, yuppy feminists have discovered that children can be status symbols, just like expensive cars and summer homes (or at least, time-shares) in the Hamptons. Having or adopting a child shows the world that you can “have it all,” even if you rarely see the tyke. After all, what are illegal aliens for? Ellison is writing on the joys of motherhood for women who either have no children, or who neglect their children, but wish to get credit for their illegal nannies’ labors.
