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.
“At every step of his national political career, network reporters showered the Illinois Senator with glowing media coverage, building him up as a political celebrity and exhibiting little interest in investigating his past associations or exploring the controversies that could have threatened his campaign.”
I must ask a very serious and urgent question of our media. Why do you continue to talk glibly about current climate ‘warming’ when it is now widely acknowledged that there has been no ‘global warming’ for the last ten years, a cooling trend that many think may continue for at least another ten years? How can you talk of the climate ‘warming’ when, on the key measures, it isn’t?

Yes, he's right about the global warming scare. But he supports the Russians all-out against Georgia. It's no surprise: In the 1990s during the Balkan wars he was a friend of Milosivic. His Euro-skepticism would be refreshing, but his sympathy for Slavic authoritarians puts his political motives in doubt.
Once again I will try to direct the readers to this man:

This is the man who is president of the AAUP has been running the joint (association) for many, many years now. Every school administrator is terrified of him, every professor thinks of him as JC superstar saving the profession. HOWEVER, as a youth he was one of the student organizers at the Chicago Democratic convention.
Yes, got your email.
Sounds like the average 60s Lefty bully who never learned anything since then. Not to worry - he will retire soon on his comfortable pension, thanks to the hard working Capitalist parents who paid his salaries all these years.
