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.
This mini-tantrum coming from the excellent Ankle-Biter is what many of us feel whenever we encounter the news:
†It pains me greatly to have to say this because it makes me feel like a rightwing crank when I do, but thereís no escaping it: the Left truly does hate America. They hate everything about it; itís Judeo-Christian heritage; the God-given rights it protects for its citizens; its free markets; you name it, they hate it. Itís a harsh judgment and normally I couldn't care less what these fools think, but just consider the two big stories in the paranoid, angry little minds of the extreme Left, also known as the moonbats.
Indeed. Self-hating Americans. Where do they all come from? They are relentless, because they have a religious-like mission, fueled with hate and self-righteousness.
