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.

European dhimmitude. Heart-breaking. At Moonbattery, with a quote which we could almost have written here:

The answer will be that this barbaric death cult is receiving a great deal of help from the liberal elite, which semiconsciously shares its goal of obliterating the West. The liberal elite establishment will see to it that thought criminals ? i.e., anyone suspected of opposing Muslims' gradual conquest ? are silenced, as we recently saw with the Brussels Journal, and as has been illustrated so appallingly in the case of Oriana Fallaci.
History note: Kortrijt and the Battle of the Spurs. Write a brief essay describing the historical effects of this famous battle, in which ten thousand French knights were defeated by ten thousand Flemish infantry.
