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.
Me, too. Now we finally know the pride every Briton must feel when they wake up and see a picture of the Queen on the wall. Now that we have an aristocracy of our own, we can finally laugh at those mere democracies who have to do without. They'll simply never understand the security an aristocracy gives a nation. We peasants now know our place, as royalty knows theirs. I believe it's referred to as "the natural order of the universe".
Well, I'd like to talk more, but that new law dictates we kneel and pray before the royals five times a day, and the state-installed house reminder buzzer just went off. I usually like to start subservienting myself before the official call to prayer comes over the room speaker.
Ditto. I'd never seen it before. Naturally, I found it while doing a search for "george bush chopping wood". Good ol' Google, always there in a pinch.
"the country they so openly detest."
I'm afraid I'd have to disagree, old friend. Those people in the last two pics look like the adore the perks of this great land and are prepared to rule over it forever. And, just as soon as the lame duck Congress sneaks a bill through repealing that silly "2 term limit" restriction, America's dreams to emulate those cool Europeans will finally be fulfilled.
You have to admit, J, some of that Danish furniture is awesome.
They have no fear of being deposed by so-called "democratic process".
Don't they have their Black Panthers to enforce loyalty to Their Imperial Highnesses at the polls, to ensure that those who're not going to display their feilty will not be polluting the electoral system with their treasonous balloting?
And there's the seeds of the ACORN which even now grow to become the trees from which sprout voter registration cards for millions of undocumented displaced immigrant workers, and for animals which are of course equal to any human and thus have the right, nah obligation, to show their support for Emperor Obama I.
