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 poster asking the question on the Lolita repost brings up a noticeable modus operandi of MF. Many highly charged topics are often driven more deeply down "the chain" by a sudden blizzard of post that usually draw no comments at all.
Seems that way.
Why do you think a study from Harvard ,Standford, and Penn State would show that African Americans are look at in this day and age as apes?
"Lolita Revisited" is not (i think) a repost -- it's a 'revisited' subject.
As in, say, "The Renaissance, Revisited" might be the title of a first-ever Renaissance post, and would indicate that the theme of the post is that there are some possibly new angles on the story of the Renaissance.
LM, it makes me tired, depressed, and exhausted. As in, okay, fine, what am i 'spose to do, grab a shotgun and head downtown blasting away at--what, all non protestant Europeans? I'm already donating and voting conservative, and posting my pissant conservative notions on the web -- what else? I've added four conservative kids to the population, all save the youngest paying lotsa taxes--if they'd take an old beatup fart, i'd go overseas and shoot at AQ -- what else is there? yes yes yes, we got race problems, we got immigrant problems --who doesn't know them inside out already? here's a secret -- ALL the races got problems--all the immigrants too -- in fact, all people everywhere got problems--and always have and always will.
