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.
Up and at em. More snow in the forecast. Big White ski resort had an avalanche inbounds. That is unusual. Snow pack in the Northwest is very unstable this year. Lots of folks cannot resist unskied powder and will still head into the back country and more areas are starting to bill those people thousands of dollars if they need to be rescued.
Here is a good song to get moving with this a.m.
Dedicated to George McGovern....
Hay anyone noticed that as our schools have been turning out poorly trained employees, our corporations have been using the "Anger Management" excuse for poor service?
For example: having a horrible time with my bank. Four times in the last year, they have made the same time/money consuming mistake. It has always been there mistake, but a tremendous wast of my time and energy. Finally, blew up at the branch manager. He wants me to remain civilized. How about BULLS___! Anyway, anger management what kind of attempt is that to manipulate free speech! Once again socialist idealism has been taken up by corporations to cover their own mistakes! Geez!
