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.
Don't actually kill the fatties, and certainly not before making fun of them. Give them stenuous work in the heat and humidity of New Orleans cleaning up. Enough will drop dead from "natural" causes.
I must inject here a note of congratulations on the marvelous picture provided with the thread on Recreational sex, as she has simply the finest bum one could hope to dance with at "the hop", doing the bop! Do wop, yeah...
Well, yes. Especially in places where one party (usually, but not always Democrats) has no competition.
Here in Hoboken, the Dems swooped in to "save" an ailing hospital in Hoboken, which really needed to be privately downsized. The Hudson County Democrats stuffed council meetings on the matter with hospital workers who might otherwise lose their jobs, opponents were shouted down, and the town bonded a takeover.
Now, Corzine is making headlines, saying 'sorry, we'll have to cut back on hospital funding. Several state-supported hospitals already have new ownership. If Hoboken (where Corzine) cannot make ends meet, they'll be left $10-20 million (probably the latter) in the hole, in addition to losing the property the hospital is on. If Corzine shows favoritism in supporting Hoboken's scheme, they'll be hell to pay from other municipalities.
WHY do the Dems do this kind of thing? The more people on the state payroll, the more leverage the Dems have in pushing their agenda du jour, whether it be an election or a spending boondoggle (the Newark sports arena comes to mind).
If you want to see how this sort of Ponzi scheme ultimately collapses, keep your eye on New Jersey.
Speaking of fatties and flying. Ever get stuck in a window seat next to a fattie? I'm thinking a "Drop" button on your hand rest would be good. Hit it, the floor opens, seat and fattie fall out of the plane, and then you can spread out and have a snooze. The chair has a parachute and some water and carrot sticks in a Zip-Lock bag for survival.
