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.
Skiing again in the morning.Okemo this time, and I am about to head up there for the weekend. Not a particularly challenging mountain (a "family mountain" for sure), but closer, and with the loan of a friend's condo and today's snow, some good fun without expense. Sometimes I wish that fall, with hunting, and winter with skiing, could simply rotate all year. One more reason to welcome the coming global cooling.
More truth about Obama: His stance on gun rights. These lefties have absolutely no concept of the limits of government power which means, to me, no respect for the population. And what about this? Bernadette Dohrn?
Did we mention this? The AP instructs on how to play the Fidel retirement story. OK, we all know that it's a happy country full of happy slaves, enjoying their "health care" while singing and dancing all day long, and never worrying their heads about politics at all. It probably is a paradise for the rulers, as long as they are sociopaths.
This social worker confirms the bias reported in the article above. It. Is. Appalling.
Maybe not to worry, though. The average age of social workers is 55, and the replacements aren't coming that fast. Additionally, most of the younger SW's I know shrug at the politics they were taught. They said what they needed to to pass. They usually have an area of particular interest that has some immunity to political correctness because they genuinely want to see results in geriatric or substance abuse social work. They may believe too much of the remaining PC nonsense, but they also don't care that much.
And when they have children, of course, the slow change begins, especially if they have more than one child. Very few people have two children over the age of ten and are still liberal.

How could the police allow that to happen? In Dallas of all places!
