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.

As a Darwinian atheist I can write without irony or malice that I hope every son of a socialist, feminist, or Democrat is a homosexual or transgender.
Skinny is an oppressive symbol in a culture that teaches women to hate themselves.
Feminism is indeed a catalog of hatred against women.
Cleary we need to return to patriarchy and its love of women and love of women's bodies.
What happened to the Swedes? Did all the hard-headed Swedes immigrant to the US, a.k.a my relatives.
The 'young male' demographic of the Muslim refugees is certainly not being publicized by the media. Worse than the initial four or more family members that follow is the birth rate of these groups once they get to Europe; good nutrition, free and excellent medical (including pediatric) care, and nothing else to do all day long.
Matched against the sub-replacement birth rate of the natives, Good-Bye Europe.
Dentist not charged for killing Cecil the lion.
Last summer I suggested that the Zimbabwe government would decline to charge the dentist for a number of reasons and got ponced on by the SWJ.
The goose is more important than the lion. The Golden Goose that is.
Skipped the first 4 depressing leads and went straight for the feel good story from Houston.
I grew up in an evangelical church. The kids not only went trick or treating, wore any costume they wanted but the church had a big Halloween party every year featuring a mystery witch with spooky cauldron.
The satanic stuff and Halloween hating, as I recall, didn't get started until sometime in the 70's and that was by pretty extreme fundies.
That story makes a great counter point to the recent news story that an armed police officer was turned away at an Olive Garden restaurant because he was carrying a gun (at least it wasn't because he was a cop!). Link: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/10/12/olive-garden-apologizes-to-kansas-city-police-officer/
One wonders how many criminals they've refused service to for being armed or if they would tell police officers to leave if they were investigating or responding to a crime...
I saw the same thing as a kid. My sister and I went trick or treating with a group of kids who were our classmates. What church we went to - or none at all - didn't enter into the mix.
The only folks who refrained from Halloween were Jehovah's Witnesses, in keeping with their prohibition on all events like this. If there was a some sort of party in school these kids either skipped that day or got permission to gather with their like-minded brethren for an extra study hall in a spare classroom. There was no wailing or gnashing of teeth. We all knew the situation and never gave these kids grief over it.
"Students demand Thomas Jefferson statue removed from university, call him ‘racist rapist’"
To prospective students: This is all the assessment you need of the schools Humanities department. If the student body is permitted to remain this ignorant and lacking in mature thought, is it really a school for those wanting an education?
"Got College Loans to Pay Off? Try Hooking!"
Hey, what are the Liberal Arts for if not to move a student up to Call Girl status, if not courtesan?
From a sci-fi show, Lost Girl. I thought it was hilarious and an fitting end to Che.
Kenzi: “I am like a folk hero to these delinks. I am like their Che Guevara!”
Bo: “Do you even know who that is?”
Kenzi: “Dude in the beret,” Kenzi duhs. “Designs tee-shirts for angry youth.”
Cecil the lion? Really? That is so September.
I have been bothered by the inconsistent way civilians and police are treated. Even gun grabbing lefties seem to accept cops around with guns, but go into a rage if a citizen does so.
Cops are no better than the rest of us.
Police are part of the government and the left has no problem with their government being armed. I think they really understand at a certain level that the Second Amendment really is in part about countering governmental tyranny. Since they are tyrannical (see the lack of free speech on college campuses), they are uncomfortable with anything that could be used to counter governmental power.
RE Climate Refugees
back in '05, the UN predicted 50,000,000 of them by 2010.
another failed warmal colding prediction. if there's a verifiable climate prediction, its either a failure or has been contradicted by another climate prediction.
I predict more lies and excuses.
"Kenzi: 'Dude in the beret,' Kenzi duhs. 'Designs tee-shirts for angry youth.'"
While I was strolling along the Strand one afternoon in London, a young guy passed me wearing the "iconic" Che T-shirt, you know, Che in the beret with a red star with the word REVOLUTION in bold caps underneath.
But wait a minute. It wasn't Che at all; it was a chimpanzee in a beret with a red star.
And the word underneath in bold caps was DEVOLUTION.
Every Canadian who heads to Florida or Arizona for the winter is a climate refugee.
"Last summer I suggested that the Zimbabwe government would decline to charge the dentist for a number of reasons and got ponced on by the SWJ.
The goose is more important than the lion. The Golden Goose that is."
If a hunter was smart though, I would think he/she'd think elsewhere to hunt, anyway. I doubt having rabid SJW's bombard your house with toilet paper and spray paint and stalking you and your family is any fun. Or at least do it anonymously. Don't go posting any selfies with your kill.
Of course I don't know if there are any countries in Africa that are democratically ruled and not as corrupt as Zimbabwe.
but we deport you every year, so there's a net zero.
I truly believe my (left of progressive) sister is very disappointed all three of her children are straight and married to the opposite sex, and with children. But they are all vegetarians (but not their spouses) so I guess she can console herself with that.
A "Darwinian atheist"?
Exactly what is that, pray tell.
Nothing like a "Social Darwinist"?
two drums and a cymbal falling off a cliff is a "sting".
Back in the day, had a classmate who was extremely slender. So were her brother and sister. They looked great; however, their slenderness was apparently due to some not-so-great condition and they all died relatively young.
We all have a genetic predisposition with respect to body shape; how we adapt to same is our problem, no one else's.
