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.
Call me crazy but I could only watch about a minute of that. It started out looking very similar to an ostrich walking in that herky jerky motion. Then I thought I could see the Jets and the Sharks developing into a gang fight. I bailed.
I don't recall a good thread on the great piccolo players of the nation. Are we heathens?
He may be all of that BD, which in the course of things is a good deal more important to this blog than my contributions , but some how I had previously missed his scathing attack on me on a thread of May 18.
It was a gutless attack born of a small man who would not brook criticism of his thought or presentation of thoughts in a manner he didn't like. Not only that but he made several totally erroneous assumptions in his assault. Now I have long let it be known that I don't care if my contributions are read or not..some people read them , others don't. Some like them , others don't. But his diatribe was totally ad hominem, and so I'm suppose to keep my mouth shut? BS.
So you do what you need to do, or have Roger (who can dish it but can't take it) tell you what to do.
In the interim I won't mention him again for by now he's fully aware of what a weasel I think he is, and what a PC pansy.
So you can throttle back the threats. I have long since learned that free speech and non PC presentations are not allowed on some Internet sites. Don't worry, you'll eventually have all the heads nodding agreement with no voice of decent expressed by a soul.
You know at one point you told me to keep writing in the manner I wanted...I guess Rogers ego has put a stop to that.
If you cut me off do this..let this post stand and point to it and tell the contributors how I was barred because I failed to genuflect to Roger the Beneficent. They'll get the word real quick.
On the one hand, moderately interesting, on the other hand, moderately pretentious. It's another one of those things that raises one of my unanswerable questions...What percentage of people with real jobs and real responsibilities get the whole point of this? All I could think of was sperm (truth, sorry). I mean, I'm sure that if I were immersed in the artsy-fartsy world I wandered through in my more idle and curious college days I would have the time to fully appreciate something like this. Lately, it's just tiring. Of course maybe because I've never seen much point in watching other people dance except in a completely vicarious way. Or maybe it's because I'm odd and a great number of people really feel a desire to dance like this. Ah, who cares?
Apropos of nothing else, people should refrain from posting photos from their family reunions on the web if they're not willing to accept responsibility for the consequences.

Be just like you be. Just try to show the same respect for others being who they be that you expect others to show for you being your own cantankerous self. It's not that hard, unless you need medication.
