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.
No, nobody at Maggie's is threatening to move to Canada, but Michael Medved takes a grim look at the Consequences of Defeat (h/t, reader). His points about immigrants are telling. Rove warned us about that consequence during the immigration debates last year. Rove, Bush, and McCain knew that hispanic voter loyalty was up for grabs, and that they were, in a number of ways, a natural Repub constituency.
Um, tourists? Is that what businessmen are calling it these days? I am talking mainland here. All night for around $80 USD. 4 star treatment.
No, I plan on working for big western firms with gobs of cash for getting their gee-gaws produced reliably, efficiently, and cheaply. They need round-eye on the ground for that! I know several people who are living like kings over there for pennies a day doing just that. Not so far fetched in my book.
(I think Mrs. Phil and the little Phils might have other plans though.)
Besides, Hanoi is not in PRC. That's Viet Nam dude.
Listen to me, all you depressed guys. You're depressing me! I thought I told you to keep fighting, keep believing, until the very last moment. And then keep fighting some more.
I'm not leaving town, for Alaska, New York [God forbid] or Canada. I'm staying in Texas, where civilized people live and can own guns to hunt with and protect themselves with. I am, however, buying some extra ammunition for my house gun, because I suspect if That Man wins on Nov. 4, I'm going to maybe need it. And if my American hero, McCain, wins, I'm perhaps going to need it even more, to protect myself from the outraged Far Left. But I'm not giving up, and you guys shouldn't be either. Cowboy up, fellas!
Marianne, You rock girl!! I do think the above gentleman are using my favorite tool. Sarcastic humor. I don't think there are to many quitters here on Maggie's Farm. You keep that Taurus The Judge loaded, and I'll keep my Taurus .45 loaded too! Food, for thought, in my whacked out state Cowhampshire. Obama was up in the polls by 10, right up till voting day. Hillary wins Cowhampshire by 3, or 4. I think Big Mac will do the same. Ciao bella. : )
Does the Far Left own any guns? I would imagine they expect us to queue up like the Aussies and drop off our guns OR get the new Obama police state to enforce it. a) I do not plan on queuing up to hand in anything and b) would the Obama police state have the stomach?
The 2nd amendment protects all the rest.
yah --sarcastic humor sums it up. I'll stick here in Texas wif ya, MM. Tho we may have to, as so many tongue-clenched-in-teeth brainiac lefties attempted to type to my great merriment in 00 ad 04, "succeed" from the union. But not 'til they hiest the hammer n sickle over DC.
Buddy ... only Texans and other Southerners know how to spell secede, and how to do it. And the memory is still green down here. Are you a history buff like my husband? We've lived long enough to have a little leisure to read history, and he loves not only American history but English history and Winston Churchill's six volume set. Right now I'm remembering Churchill's broadcast during the early days of World War II. He said: "Never never never never never give up." Pretty good advice at this juncture.
