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.
In contrast to Dershowitz, my analogy, not original to me, is the Dems are the woman scorned, unhinged by jealousy, and enraged by the rejection. The obsession, stalking, harassment, smears, threats and bullying are all part and parcel.
The elections in Virginia were dominated by gerrymandering and replacement voters. It is no accident that our government has imported some 90 million replacement voters since 19643 when Ted Kennedy and fellow Democrats set up a policy to increase legal immigration, foreign "temporary" workers and allow illegal immigrants to stay. This is why the leading Democrat candidates for 2020 are promising free stuff and amnesty to illegals. This is the plan, you will be phased out and the illegals phased in. Why? For raw power of course but also for wealth. The U.S. has the largest and richest middle class and the elite are literally drooling over the possibility of looting that treasure. But before they can take your wealth, your homes, your assets they must take your guns. We are all calmly enjoying our lives, keeping busy with work and family, sports on the weekends and vacations in the Summer but as this invasion begins to interfere with our lives and break into our consciousness the elite are expecting some "pushback" and it must be crushed (see Hong Kong) and it is impossible to "crush" a armed population because they tend to "crush" back. So pay attention, turn off the football game, watch the Democrats in Virginia and the impeachment in congress and watch the elite flesh out their plans to replace and rob you.
We have links on propaganda in the NYT, censorship at facebook, immigration turning the nation blue one state at a time, the Deep State and it's overt fight against Trump, and the irrational ideas coming from the Left.
On reflection, it's a typical news day, however, one wonders how much of this the Republic can stand?
I'm still willing to be a bit more optimistic: 2016 happened, despite the experts telling us it was impossible. We didn't find ourselves in this mess overnight. It took a long time to get here. Most likely, it will take a long time to get out. To be sure, a good many Americans will be waiting until the pain exceeds the fear. As for the rest of us, I'm trying to remember what Ike said about the fury of an aroused democracy. The ironically-named Democrats rant about threats to democracy only because they're having to deal with democracy, and it doesn't suit them. Too bad they believed their own propaganda.
USMC is changing... no s*it sherlock as on the same page a link to USMC now allowed to use umbrellas... first co-ed boot camp and now this... apparently Marines are going to hell just like everything else.
Just like the 1984 scene where the enemy switches from Eurasia to Eastasia during a single speech... and no one notices.
Back when Comey was fired, the news came in during the Colbert show, the audience cheered his firing. Colbert 'corrected' them and soon they were angry at his firing. Complare, if you will, Mark Antony's speech in Julius Caesar.
32 writers think the NYT's and networks' choice of words are insuffficiently prejudicial against Trump. This is calculated, as is the reporting on it, as it could have been ignored. It allows those outlets to claim they must be objective, as they are drawing criticism from both sides.
