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.

That's just perfect satire -- such a deft skewering you don't see so often--
...note Pharoah -- it's Jimmy Carter wearing a pharonic storm-trooper's cap -- and i think i see Bill Maher in the crowd scene -- probably others -- where's me spectacles i wonder --
peoplescube is early on the ACD issue:
Industrial Nations Threaten Globe Again
A new menace to the planet has been discovered and validated by a consensus of politically reliable scientists: Anthropogenic Continental Drift (ACD) will result in catastrophic damage and untold suffering, unless immediate indemnity payments from the United Sates, Europe, and Australia be made to the governments of non-industrial nations, to counteract this man-made threat to the world's habitats.
I visit the People's Cube daily to get my marching orders from the collective. It's truly an inspiration..well as long as you don't have to get your shovel and take a train ride to the Pechora Beet Collective #23
i would laugh at that, but i do not approve of unorthodox humor unless it serves the class struggle.
It is for the Great Good that you are able to hold your mirth Comrade. By Great Stalin's Ghost you serve the People and the Current Truth with vigor. Maybe a new Order of Maggie's Farm needs to be struck.
I myself witnessed Comrade Buddy reading copy of imperialist National Review. Perhaps he would be so kind as to telling how he acquires such literature of the enemy of the masses? Is he imperialist enemy to the state? We wish to know this...
greetings comrade jephnol, on behalf of that part of the proletariat whose representatives have learned where the other parts of the proletariat's representative's families live. we are confident that your recent health problems re certain hallucinations can be cured via a few decades under the people's psychiatric care. a van from the hospital is idling outside your door at this very minute. good health, dear comrade!
Buddy, "good health dear comrade" you're the last person who should be talking about good health. You lost an arm to that flesh eating bacteria, and that crazy barber in Texas took your teeth and cut your hair bald, not to mention gold teeth too. But you're still the smartest, funniest blogger/comrade out there. So let's go get the bad guys, comrade. Whadda ya say?
Comrade jappy, you have been misinformed by the vicious reactionary operatives of the revanchist capitalist sabotage gangs. Those operations you mention conformed to the highest standards of our Worker's Paradise, and besides all the small errors have been liquidated with prejudice.
My loyalty to the state is unquestionable! I am loyal party member. Please to remember I establish party headquarters in district. Why are you here? Let me go!!! I am loyal party member! Ahhhhhhhhhh...vn;lrgnrnvygbiujln km,
Comrade Buddy, is good friend Comrade Jephnol. Tell me again where do you live and last name, so Babushka can send cake.
hail survival ability of good comrade jephnol. Please no cake now as all food tasters died suddenly of old age at last party conference. send wodka and please not exploding kind.
Buddy, is not Jephnol. Suddenly he brake all fingers and is no longer able to respond so I, Comrade Jerkinoff, write for him.
Send address and last name and I tell Babushka to send you cake. My associates and I will bring quickly to you and wodka also.
Bring copy of imperialist literature. Da!
Comrade jerkinoff, regret to inform that while fishing for sturgeon a few minutes ago i have fallen into Dneiper river and have cease to exist under current name & address. However, whoever i am now is watching you now through telescope an am wonder are you one in fur cap working at keyboard of model 3 MoscowWorks steam-powered 4 ton laptop? if so, please to raise finger.
We'll see who is last man standing, Comrade. Bwa-hahahahaha!

"Imperialists fear on the ground propaganda provisions of this body!
Good night, Kamrad!"
har -- you are a Wild and Crazy guy, Comrade! When you come to America, perhaps you can hold some American girl's BREASTS!
Ahhh! The land of the free and unrestrained breasts!
There I go again, trying to be clever. I should just stop and realize that my lame ideas are already old news.
Ah well, now I have new funny website to visit.
Welcome to the People's Cube, comrades peasants of Maggie's Collective Farm. But please don't leave your shovels unattended. We are not responsible for lost or stolen means of socialist production.
In return, Cubists will be encouraged to pay a visit to your farm on an organized union-sponsored group tour. I trust you distill your own vodka. Should we bring warm clothes?
Glad to be on board with ya, Red Square. Power to the People's Wise Masters!
is good. Great dachas on Black Sea for all People's Wise Masters!
This is most unfair Comrades. When I joined the Party all I got was this dull shovel, a turnip, and a bottle of beet sauce.
Maybe I could spend the weekend at Comrade Larson's Dacha for rest and relaxation from my toils of battling the reactionary Amerikan Imperialist and jaywalkers.
This is perhaps one of the most important articles ever published! Now the fact that I am an important Commissar at the People's Cube, nor the implicit threat that I could be forced into "re-education," not to mention loss of my entitlements if I did not agree totally, had anything to do with this endorsement.
I welcome all to the Collective. We need as many shovels as possible to build the world socialist Eden. Hillary, Obama, or McCain can not do it by themselves.
Comrades, the Collective embraces its newest workers in the struggle of the proletariat. The only effective guarantee against excesses on the part of the imperialist bourgeoisie is to continue to march under the slogan "Curing Weak Liberalism With Strong Communism."
With your help, Comrades, we shall do everything in our power to raise the political understanding of the peasants, to enlighten them, to bring them closer to the working class, the leader of our revolution -- and we shall see to it that the peasantry becomes the ever firmer and ever more reliable ally of the proletariat in our country.
Thank you for your support in these matters.
With comradely greetings,
