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.
The Obama administration's version of Aretha Franklin's R-E-S-P-E-C-T is its reverse, C-O-N-T-E-M-P-T. Contempt for the American people and for our institutions. How else can they baldface lie about most everything and anything, with the assistance of much of the liberal media covering-up for the lies. It is little wonder that either through patriotism, animus or self-serving that there are enough leaks to expose enough lies that any sentient being can see them for what they are. Events that are reported are making a hash out of administration deceptive contempt for truth and facts. For those less aware, the problem is penetrating the cover-up wall erected and defended by much of the liberal media. That will take a concerted effort. It doesn't have to be anything beyond factual ads swamping the airwaves in this final six weeks of the campaign, getting the truth over the media's wall. Romney better be going all in on getting those ads on the airwaves.
Bitter Clingers --to the disgraceful mainstream media --R Us.
At least, it is said, somewhere around 60% of we-the-people are.
The explanation for this is: "It is inexplicable".
For example, if not for Brett Baier and Catherine Herridge, Ambassador Chris Stevens and three compatriots RIP would've gone into the history books with a final insult --call it 'canard fodder' --draped across their coffins.
The only sense that can be made of such a fractured circumstance is that it is due to some buried key to human nature, something along the lines of ego-gratification, perhaps pictured as the Truth being regardless of who you are, and never the Thing that comes smilingly to you calling your name.
It's basically everything, Zach. Some people have blind spots and can't see what others do, and don't hear frequencies that others do; and then there are those who just ignore things they don't want to see or hear.
