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.
N. Korea threatens to wipe the US off the earth. I wonder whether the O is one of those kind of guys who can be tough on the basketball court (eg basketball, the Brits, the Repubs, etc), but who wimps out with genuine danger.
I guess we need to try being nicer to the North Koreans. Have we tried sending flowers, or inviting them over for hot dogs on the 4th?
Have we tried destroying our economy, or castrating our military? Have we tried bending way over yet?
Semi-related re our hot dog party friends: Iran is erupting. Shucks, let's invite them all over to our house. Maybe if we are nice, they will be nice.
