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.
Have not seen or heard much of the V.P. since his hunting incident, where his buddy tried to pull a Brokeback Mountain on him. For some reason this vidio disturbes me I can't explain why.Are we better off now ,or should we have committed ourselves back in 1994. Methinks that we would have been better off if we finished what we started in 94 allies or not.
I both agree with your comments and with BD's reply....the $64K question. As a northern neighbour (American albeit a "North American") I watch the world situation play itself out and wonder myself. Are we meant to know? We are kept from knowing by the 'powers that be'...that, in itself, is knowing enough!
It's not so much that question that bothers me, but the fact that Cheney lays out point for point, with remarkably accurate foresight, precisely what has happened in the last five years. You can't say he didn't see it coming. And just to think, this was the rebuttal to some Dems who criticized Bush I for not going to Baghdad. Truly bizarre.
