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.
the question is : Will the MSM carry the Globe's account of Obama's involvement in the public housing story? Would they dare share that news with other low income housing tenants across the country? I doubt it, don't you?
As far as feminist anger goes, back in the 1960s, I thought I was a feminist because I believed in "equal pay for equal work," a simple enough concept which almost anyone should see ought to work.
Unfortunately it still doesn't happen, [although things are somewhat better] and the whole concept of "feminism" has deteriorated into a meme that all men are enemies and the government should fulfill women's needs. Today's feminists are angry women mostly. I'd be angry too, if I thought that half of the human race was no dam' good.
Fortunately I, and many other women like me, think that men are just fine, thank you very much, just the way they are. We like men. I have one in my home right now that I've been devoted to for 37 years and counting, and we have many men friends I'm also devoted to.
I still can't understand how feminism evolved into a gripe group for selfish, unsuccessful females, but I no longer hold membership in the concept. And I definitely don't think that the government should take over the male role in society. Look how well they've done with the Post Office.
