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.

Liberals want the US to invade Burma? Darn imperialist liberals. I say to them: No blood for Betel Nuts.
The Farm Bill is a Harvest of Shame. Indeed, it consists of political pay-offs, and offers nothing to the country.
Hey, GW! How about a speech like that in the US?

Actually, I think that should be no blood for rubies -- that's what they have there, you know.
ah, Ruby Keeler -- sold her a horse, once. Nurse! Where's my mush?
"Liberals want the US to invade Burma?"
Sorry, I thought it said "invade Mr. Burns". Never mind.
"Invade Mr. Burns?" caption for
Todays prize ottombile is a Dusey. Yes the car that gave rise to that word, the Duesenburg,
Only two Model Js came close to being "sports cars," a pair of specials unofficially referred to as SSJ. Both were built by the Cord-owned Central Manufacturing Company, using the La Grande name, on "short" 125-inch wheelbases. Both were first driven by movie stars. The first was owned by Gary Cooper. The second was loaned to Clark Gable as a demonstrator, but was not purchased by Gable. Both cars survive today, though as museum pieces, and there's still no definitive information on their performance. But they must have been shattering, what with relatively lean bodies, 400-horse "ram's horn" engines, and chassis 17 inches shorter than standard.
Stories abound about the races Cooper and Gable had driving up the Pacific Coast Highway to parties at Wm. Randolph Hearst's Castle in these two Dusey's.
I must admit there is no way I can find coherency in liberal philosophy. Is this bleeding heart liberalism or liberal Burma guilt or the residue of a bad LSD trip?
One thing I do know is that until it reaches the point where there's a mass outbreak of Invade Burma t-shirts then it's still a back burner issue.
But I would ask the liberals this question. Where was the human wall, the human shield standing vigilant against the ravages of this human catastrophe? And will they now immigrate to Burma to help harvest the bloated corpses of their Myanmar brothers and sisters? We need action , not words from our liberals. This is America. I will personally buy fifty pairs of water wings for any liberals who are dying to get to Burma, and twenty five tubes of SPF 5 sunscreen for their float. I want to show them that conservatives have compassion too.
The saddest commentary of all on their behavior however is that when the tide was out so were they. And when the tide came in they failed to stop it. Oh the humanity.

The reason there's no action in Burma: Bad marketing.
The Burmese perished.

INSTALLING A HUSBAND
Dear Tech support,
Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slow down in overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.
In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5 and then installed undesirable programs such as NBA 5.0, NFL 3.0 and Golf Clubs 4.1.
Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system. I've tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail.
What can I do?
First keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system.
Please enter command: ithoughtyoulovedme.html and try to download Tears 6.2 and don't forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update. If that application works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.
But remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0 or Beer 6.1. Please note that Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download the Snoring Loudly Beta.
Whatever you do, DO NOT install Mother-In-Law 1.0 (it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources.)
Also do not attempt to reinstall Boyfriend 5.0 program. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0.
In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance. We recommend Cooking 3.0 and Hot Lingerie 7.7.
haw -- i downloaded ExWife, and the CD changer flew open and grabbed my wallet
The minute you have to start scanning for viruses, you better have a Marriage Repair Utility nearby.
The terrorist monkey can not be negotiated with. The only reason to maybe talk to Ahmadamadmonkey in say maybe Switzerland is to provoke him by debating his ideology and criticizing the hatred. Force him to say lots of stupid and insane things which would be widely publicized thus educating more people to his ideology's insanity. This, I am quite sure, Obama would never do.
Ouch, Obama and the poor little Dems were hit a little too close to home by what GW said. It's one of the best things Bush has ever said. Bravo! And he didn't even have to mention the Dhimmicrats or any body's name.
So sure, then he folded in Saudi Arabia, but what he said in Israel almost makes that OK.
