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.
Heather McDonald: Even Harvard’s bottomless resources cannot buy a miracle, however. So instead of a magician, the university has brought forth the next best thing: a report on “diversity” that, like all such products, possesses the power of shutting down every critical faculty in seemingly intelligent people. For connoisseurs of diversity claptrap, Harvard’s just released “Report of the Task Force on Women Faculty” is a thing of beauty, a peerless example of the destruction of higher learning by identity politics. Because the report will undoubtedly serve as the template for future diversity scams in colleges across the country, it’s worth studying. Read entire in City JOurnal.
Vote won't affect EU: No, they will just keep on doing what they do, regardless: CSM They have created a kingdom of bureaucrats.
NPR: There must be something sick and perverse in me that enjoys some of the NPR stuff. With only 2% of their income now coming from the govt=us, time to quit that 2% and let them do their thing. What the heck. Piece in Intell. Conservative.
Koran. Will post nothing re this trivial silly non-issue. Not worth the virtual ink and I am fresh out of virtual urine. But I will quote LaShawn:Despite what they may say, Muslims are and have always been on a mission to conquer and kill infidels. They’ve been doing it for centuries and will continue until we’re all dead, or they’re all dead, or the world ends, whichever comes first. We need to get over ourselves and focus on stopping the spread of Islamofacism. Period. Save civility and Koran “handling” for less perilous times.
Gun Nut. The real thing in NJ, the kind of idiot that makes responsible gun owners look bad. Shame on this old fool (82 years old).
The Dutch EU Vote has been sort of ignored by the MSM. Nice summary in Squaring the Boston Globe - quotes from the voters are great.
Christian-Hating Dems: Why, why, why? Someone please explain to me why the Dems hate Christians. Harkin, in this case, but it might as well be Dean. Hillary too smart to say stuff like this, whatever she thinks - and that you will NEVER know. Captains Quarters.
