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.

One comment on McClellan's book: I have no doubt that the Bush Admin, like all admins, had and has many flaws and unpleasant secrets. However, most peoples' consciences would prevent them from airing the dirty laundry of their friends and benefactors - and I do mean benefactors, because McClellan was the lamest WH press sec I have ever seen. He made Bush sound articulate. Still, thank God for a free country where people are free to publish such things.

After they ban kitchen knives, will they ban cricket bats? croquet mallets?
And now for something completely different: Lurchers, Terriers and Ferrets
Glenn Beck on jobs Americans won't do
World rebels against big government environmentalism. That's what comes of overreaching.
Rocky, Bullwinkle, and Me. A good rant. A quote:
Collapse of Christianity is wrecking Brit society, says Bishop
Phantom Guilt, Revisited, at Thompson. It's about the vanity of Liberal guilt. Quote:
Father Michael Pfleger is a piece of work, here preaching at Obama's church. Or is it a church?

I saw a bumper sticker the other day. I think it was at either Theo's,or The Grouchy Old Cripple sites. It said Obama: Change, Hope ,Marxism. I like the Mc Cain one too.
I forgot to thank you for the link to Jim Sinclairs site...so, thank you sir. I haven't had a chance to really take a good look at it but from first impression I know I'll enjoy it.
Rocky, Bullwinkle, Boris, Natashia, Dudley Do Right, MR Peabody, and Sherman. Sure do miss those guys, I would love to take a trip with Mr Peabody, and Sherman in that time machine right about now.
I have mentioned this before. The Chinese Army has an entire division dedicated to breaching our systems..as well as these hackers...I believe it is an act of war in the modern age.
Chinese hackers pose a clear and present danger to U.S. government and private-sector computer networks and may be responsible for two major U.S. power blackouts.

Chinese hacking US systems
Nice to know how peaceful and friendly they are.
What happens when the Chinese decide to pull down our entire electrical grid? Here are some thought provoking considerations. I promise you this is doable TODAY and it isn't comic book stuff
These are only a few of the pssibilities
Up til about :60 into the video, I thought it was a take from a late night talk show. The man introducing him had his banter going, he had the smooth alliteration in his intro and he got the crowd excited . Then the guy comes on, hugs and all and then we see his routine. The only thing missing was a couch beside a desk and maybe a scene from an upcoming movie or album. I quit watching at that point. That's no church; at least, it's not a church that I would recognize. Seemed more like a production studio. Host? check. Side kick (with moves)? check. Tonight's guest? check. Off screen musical sidekick? check. Hope you enjoyed the show; don't forget to tithe on your way out.
That church needs a bunker busting nuke from heaven. Is Father Wigger a Catholic priest? He'd fit in with the Berrigan bros.
Me thinks, Father Michael will not be a priest for long, unless he repents.
If he does repent, he should be sent back to relearn the rule of the Catholic Church and her rejection of "liberation theology".
This is another strike against Hussein's misguided attempt to steal the Democrat nomination by fiat.
Hillbillary will drive the stake to claim that nomination at convention.
Democrats, generally, have some sense of decency in comparison with the Hussein wing of the party.
If they're allowing priests to bugger alter boys Father Mikey ain't got no problems with simply whipp'n up the darkies.
Re: McClellan's book
If the Bush White House was in "permanent campaign" mode, it was remarkably inept.
Many of you express surprise that this type of behavior goes on within black churches and the black community.
Others of us believe a different paradigm exists; one in which not just Black Liberation Theology exists or the Nation of Islam and Louis exists but one whereby a statistically high, moonshot high, black antipathy toward whites exists.
(yes, here come the ..but I have a black friend and he/she never acts that way, etc, etc)
Well, once again one can never say 100% but in the election shaping up and the residue it will leave, a figure well over 90% solidarity will coalesce around the Rev Wrights, NOI and their ilk.
This will not be the residue of Plumeria frangipani, but rather the malodorous seepage of raw racism. It is already practiced in the black neighborhoods of this country and now we see in some of the Blacks finest, most respected churches.
No one is winning in this election.
This nation is about to undergo not a healing and coming together, but a divisiveness greater than has existed since Buchanan was President..take it to the bank.
Well perhaps it's time for the pressure to blow the lid off and let these various malignant tensions be exposed to the sanitizing light of day.
Black folks are small minority whose political clout is only high in comparison to Muslim vote in US.
Niether one requires more than a glance.
Glenn Beck deserves only a tad of a glance, since, he thinks Hussein is KOOL, easy to talk to, and an attractive guy.
Maybe, SCOTUS will rule RTKABA is a only a miltia right (Me doubts it) and Msr Glenn will immigrate to Montana, as he promises, and take Hussein with him.
Is Montana a gay state, yet?
Blowing of pressure in the "community" usually means burning it down. Don't agree. DO some homework on riots in this country over the last fifty years..not too many crackers burning down LA. here's a list ..take a look at the 1960 on and judge.
Montana is known as the "Gay State" absolutely. There is a slight problem however. They come to Montana and go camping and are never seen again...must be alien abduction. bear attacks or the local gentry. Up ther they live by what they call the three S's....shoot, shovel , and shut up.... If you want to get where the men are men you need to head to Dripping Springs ,TX
Yall's ignorance of Church is noted as is your fascination with real men and Gay Montana.
Real women in Texas or Montana would be of interest but yall can keep the men, Buggs.
Re guilt. Confessing other people's sins is personally inexpensive, and has a great payback.
To those who blog here:
I am being threaten with being barred. So be it. If it happens know that it's been fun to spar with some, to enjoy others ,and being human to hold others in contempt.
See first threat with dancer.
what do you mean, habu -- 'threatened' -- i don't get it --?
Habu you have to be the most bi-polor poster I've ever seen on the Internet. Your wild mood swings causes breezes all the way up to Georgia. God bless ya.
