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.
"NPR has discredited itself as a forum for free speech and a protection of the First Amendment rights of all and has solidified itself as the purveyor of politically correct pabulum and protector of views that lean left."
NPR exists in a kindergarten dream world. NPR has hated Williams since he dared to discuss self-destructive black subcultures. That is a no-no even though everybody knows about it.
I had been under the impression that liberal blacks could still say anything they wanted, lest their critics be accused of being racists, but apparently even they can't say anything that puts Islam in a bad light.
Does that mean that Islam is king of the mountain of politically favored groups, trumping women, gays and people of color?
