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.

#MeToo Will Not Survive Unless We Recognize Toxic Femininity. Women are not monolithic. Pretending they are holds everyone back.
CRT Symposium Speaker Calls Diversity of Thought 'White Supremacist' Excrement
Robby Mook Testifies: Hillary Clinton Personally Approved Leak of Alfa Bank Hoax to Media
"So was the FBI really fooled here? Or were the FBI representatives all too willingly playing along to help the Clinton campaign to smear Trump? I’ll go with the latter."

Everybody knows the FBI - as well as every other agency in the federal government - was dead set on getting rid of Trump, no matter what it took.
"White supremacist excrement"
We need to recognize that those racists on the left are the neo-KKK. The only difference is that they hate whites. We should treat them just like the old KKK, which was also a Democrat institution, and shut them down.
If it's a crime to lie to the FBI, what does that crime become once the FBI accepts the lie at face value (with a sly wink) and then allows it to run its course with their perceived seal of approval and verification? Shouldn't the FBI be on trial as well? Or is it not a crime when they do it?
Secondly: My, how quickly things change course when interviews are conducted in public, under oath! It's almost as if perjury carries a real threat to an individual's sense of agency. In my opinion, all court cases should be on open-source video for all to see, Federal and State (most states are already, I think).
Think of how quickly Adam Schiff and his ilk could have been re-routed if the closed-door, under-oath testimony (that Schiff and others kept implying was producing 'evidence') had been declassified the next day. His credibility would have been quickly disposed of. Don't forget who was in charge of things back then, House, Senate, Presidency. The hearing schedule was kept by the Republicans, and that was a key strategic mistake, a tactic that could have produced devastating results.
It should be fairly obvious by now that the Clintons are political Teflon. They won't be held accountable for anything until they're standing before Jesus.
And great article on toxic femininity.
Also, in all courts the lawyers should be under oath.
It is interesting that it is a crime to lie to the FBI but they can lie to you and there is no penalty. I cannot imagine talking with the FBI or for that matter any police. Don't talk to them, ever!
I was following along nicely until she claimed that Christine Blasey Ford was credible.
It isn't just the FBI pretending to be fooled. It is all of the administrative state pretending that they don't know while we know better. It doesn't matter if it is AGW, Russia hoax, the education or medical scamming, Ukraine money laundering, the WEF, election cheating, BBB, or the laptops. They continue to excrete BS as the answer to everything.
Crazy behavior rises to the top during market blowoffs, and that same behavior creates wars at the bottom of the market collapse.
The government has been spending trillions on stupid stuff and outright payola. But what never happened with the trillions spent to fight covid was anything effective to fight covid or any future pandemic. Every hospital in the country should have a ward or wing of the building to dedicate to pandemic treatment while simultaneously continuing 100% ability to treat the normal day to day medical needs of the citizens. Hospitals where I live are still closed, no surgeries, can't enter without a mask, clinics closed, can't get an appointment, staffing shortages and all this while the pandemic is effectively over.
The stats are available. Somehow in the last two years the deaths from cancer, old age diseases, flu and literally everything except drug overdoes, has simply dropped to zero! Hmmm! Obviously there are two possible explanations:
1. they lied and most of the covid deaths were people dying from disease and complications of old age.
2. That covid 'mostly' killed people who were likely to die from disease and complications from old age.
There really are no other possibilities
OneGuy: Somehow in the last two years the deaths from cancer, old age diseases, flu and literally everything except drug overdoes, has simply dropped to zero!
Uh, no. COVID was the third leading cause of death in 2021, after heart disease and cancer.
COVID resulted in excess deaths above the baseline.
There is considerable evidence that those "excess deaths above the baseline were the direct result of the covid shots and boosters.
OneGuy: There is considerable evidence that those "excess deaths above the baseline were the direct result of the covid shots and boosters.
Uh, excess deaths occurred before the vaccine was even available.
There has been a 300%-2000% increase in about 16 serious diseases in people who have received the vaccine. I am not surprised that you are ignorant of this as the Biden administration is actively hiding the information from the American public.
OneGuy: There has been a 300%-2000% increase in about 16 serious diseases in people who have received the vaccine.
Ignoring your mistakes doesn't constitute an argument. You claimed that "deaths from cancer, old age diseases . . . have simply dropped to zero." That was false. Then you claimed that excess deaths were due to the COVID vaccine, but that doesn't explain excess deaths before the vaccine was even available.
Then there is this https://ncrenegade.com/eight-different-surveys-all-show-the-vaccines-are-not-safe-and-effective-not-even-close/
OneGuy: Then there is this
Heh. The first thing presented as "evidence" is an internet survey with 33 votes. Regardless, you continue to ignore your previous errors.
But the fact remains that 10's of thousands of people have died from the vaccine and you offer no proof that is false. Part of the problem is the government has hidden the data because it is so damning.
It is now known that a person with three covid shots is five times more likely to get covid than a person with no covid shots.
OneGuy: But the fact remains that 10's of thousands of people have died from the vaccine and you offer no proof that is false.
You made the claim peppered with false claims. It's up to you to support it. In any case, we have provided evidence that the leading causes of death in the U.S. in 2021 were due to heart disease, cancer, and COVID, in that order. If you can't even get that basic statistics right, then why would you think you have an understanding of COVID deaths?
OneGuy: It is now known that a person with three covid shots is five times more likely to get covid than a person with no covid shots.
The evidence is that vaccination significantly reduces the chance of hospitalization and death.
Responsible medical treatment available at the time (instead of waiting to get sick enough to require a hospital stay) probably would have saved countless lives.
But of course Big Pharma and Big Hospitals would have lost out on billions if that was the case.
