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.

There have been a number of anecdotes about people being pronounced "dead" in the field and turning out to be alive. What the hey? Paramedics might have a valid protocol for determining a person is dead but it's got to be better than a listen with a stethoscope and a blood pressure check. At the least, it should be based on a flatline EKG reading.
I'm not talking here about "most sincerely dead", such as decapitation. If there's any room for doubt, the field response should be based on the "critical but alive" protocol.
Re two subsidies: since the methane subsidies have led to valuable production of energy resources, not only are the subsidies gone (as they should be) but now the "progressives" want to shut down the methane production. Meantime, corn ethanol is a drag at every point but the subsidies go on.
That's why governments should create an environment for economic development with low taxes, public safety, transportation infrastructure and rule of law. Then QUIT.
I had breakfast with a bunch of commerical fishermen in Japan one time right after they came off of the water at about 8:00 AM, after having been on the water since 2 AM. The cans in that case were most definitely NOT coffee....
