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.
Finally, the good old old Alma Mater will be graced with an ROTC. About time, guys and gals. She will be pleased, as will be most alumni. They were hounded off campus in 1969 in a sick spasm of anti-Americanism to which a lame administration gave in, to the enduring shame of the great and ancient college of Alexander Hamilton and John Jay...and David Horowitz.
(Low Library in background, as distinguished from Butler Library - and from Butler Hall - home of the fabulous and fabulously pricey rooftop Terrace. which should be reserved only for the most important and difficult seductions, business or otherwise.)
Theocracy Now !
Just like a person who has little to bring to the table, when a political movement finds itself without much to offer, the typical strategy is to attack and to tear down others rather than to compete. (Classic example: Dems going after Laura. No class whatsoever.)
We did a theocracy piece last week, and we continue to see this silly angle exploited as a scare and smear tactic. Truly ridiculous. I thought "church ladies" used to be a joke. Now they're dangerous? Come on! This "issue" has as much traction as a BMW in an ice-storm. Thanks, Captains Quarters.
