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.
Whether Scott Brown realizes it or not, his future is not entirely in his hands. Their are people out there who have plans for him, and this has all the makings of an epic ride that doesn’t necessarily end well for him. Hang on. Remember that thing about getting a dog if you want a friend in DC.
In response to a question asking Democratic Party delegates whether they felt George W. Bush was legitimately elected in 2000, fully 91% of respondents said he wasn’t. The poll also noted the response rate of self-identified Dems overall, 78% of whom thought Bush’s 2000 election was illegitimate (question 56).
Despite active measures by the BBC and the liberal Guardian newspaper to suppress climategate revelations, other media outlets like the Telegraph, the Daily Mail, and the TimesOnline have picked up the slack and have run story after story about the fraud, the bad science, and the shameful actions of scientists in trying to suppress opposing viewpoints.
I hope Senator Brown has some good high snake-boots in his luggage -- not the ones made of snakeskin, mind you. No, I mean the ones we use in Texas for the fever-swamps, so you don't get 'snake-bit.' Much of D.C. is built on swampy land, and there are still snakes swimming around, as well as sharks. A guy needs to be careful, and to realize that when someone in D.C. offers you a handshake, it's not always because he likes you. He may be trying to pull you down to his level.
this is the video being circulated into the mulla's military units. said to be having an effect. It's really good --in many ways, really good. It's a maiden's beckon to a young soldier, is what it is, underneath.
I don't know whether in a different venue Tancredo has ever said he would impose a civics literacy test for voting, but he must not have made such a claim in his opening speech, otherwise he would have been quoted as having said that. The fact that such tests were once part of Jim crow laws used to keep blacks from voting is a red herring, which the writer, Brian Kates, inserted with considerable malice in order to smear Tancredo as a racist and thereby discredit all of his remarks. Tancredo offered his opinion that Obama was elected by voters either through ignorance, lack of attention, or their inability to comprehend that HOPE and CHANGE was more than a slogan---it was a Socialist blueprint. There is nothing racist in this remark, nor is there anything in it that is nearly as condescending and dismissive of people as almost every speech that Obama has given since his election.
