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.
Vote for Miss Hoosegow 2006, at Iowahawk. They are almost as cute as the Wal-Mart girls (see below)
Climate scientists say Gore is an embarassment. The AP ignores them. Very windy and rainy here today: Thanks, George Bush for the rain - it is soaking in all the fertilizer I put out this weekend, very nicely, and my tomatoes are growing like crazy.
Anchoress says environmentalism is a religion. She doesn't say "pagan," but she might as well have said. So we have two theories: a religion, or (last nite's post re Dr. Sanity) or a socialist power grab. Could be both, eh?
Very curious about what is going on in Gaza - very hard to get any info.
"Youths" in Antwerp kill bus driver. Belgium having increasing problems with Moslem "youths." If they cannot carry guns, I'd suggest Louisville Sluggers or knives. You cannot just let the punks kill you, if you have kids at home. Brussels Journal h/t Daily Pundit
Bolton vs. Gore - How to Save the World? Hunger and disease, vs climate? The Economist.
Che Guevera: Let's try to remember who this guy was. Sandmonkey
South Florida Sun Sentinel praises CAIR. Front Page disagrees.
Bush a threat to our very democracy, claims Gore in fund raising letter. That's fund-raising for ya: Scare the ignorant. Get their money.
Why Moslems would rather move to the US than to Europe. Economist.
Germans kill their only wild bear. Ridiculous. They should see all the bears in New Jersey. Bears in the garbage, bears under the porch. No need to kill the darn things, except during hunting season.
You already saw this, didn't you? NYT caught with their pants down again, revealing their cute panties with pictures of Al Gore's face on them. Powerline. In 2002, they editorialized that we needed more aggressive intel on international bank transfers. Moral of the story: they are partisan pure and simple, without any apparent guilt about it.
As Michael Crichton wrote back in September of '03:
". . . certain human social structures always reappear. They can't be eliminated from society. One of those structures is religion...If you suppress it in one form, it merely re-emerges in another form.
. . . in the end, science offers us the only way out of politics. And if we allow science to become politicized, then we are lost. We will enter the Internet version of the dark ages."
