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.
Maybe Leftism really is a mental illness. I have always regarded that claim as hyperbole, while acknowledging the totalitarian impulses implicit in "Progressivism."
"Who are these people?", as a snobby pal often says in his obnoxious way. But really, who do these people think they are? And why do they think they are better or smarter than me? I do not want to control them, so why do they want to control what I do or read or think? It is strange.
Sean Hannity says that journalism died in 2008, when the mainstream media discarded even the pretense of professionalism and objectivity for the sake of installing an unqualified, ultra-radical community organizer in the White House.
Listened to David Brooks/Mark Shields on the PBS Newshour several nights ago. It is always an interesting discussion between these two. However, I heard (my inner ear heard) something quite telling. These words came from the liberal: "the white house is not worried about the coming election--it won't touch them." The rest of the message was about how incumbent democrats are feeling about the lack of support for them coming from the WH team. Most especially those liberal dems who backed Obama's every move. WELL, WELL ladies and gentlemen, I think I can explain why the WH is not showing an overt support for their former team mates--the WH is not worried about this election (2010), but most importantly the WH is not even worried about the NEXT election 2012. That is because they already know that Obama will be re-elected!! They already know, because they stole the first election and plan to steal the next! YOU SEE--no one rose up when they were practicing stealing elections. No one rose up in rage when they stole the governor's mansion in at least three elections in WA state. NO one rose up when they stole the election in. . . . They were learning how to do it folks--they tried for the big brass ring in the last election and it worked--so why in the heck should they be worried anymore?
Lets not be blind. This is a whole new ballgame with new rules.
To bitterly cling to the old set of rules will assure defeat.
To choose to not see the oddities of the '08 election is a bit of denial imo.
That was a pack of lies to mask their own failed attempts.
We know full well the extent of the election fraud Obama and his communists engaged in in the 2008 elections, it's well documented, including the investigations into it by the FBI being dropped on orders of the White House.
