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.
Bill Maher: Why are Democrats so badly misinformed about COVID? Because that's the way they like it.

Democrats fancy themselves educated and so are easily fool, misled and manipulated.
“Why you fool, it’s the educated reader who CAN be gulled. All our difficulty comes with the others. When did you meet a workman who believes the papers? He takes it for granted that they’re all propaganda and skips the leading articles. He buys his paper for the football results and the little paragraphs about girls falling out of windows and corpses found in Mayfair flats. He is our problem. We have to recondition him. But the educated public, the people who read the high-brow weeklies, don’t need reconditioning. They’re all right already. They’ll believe anything.”
— C.S. Lewis, That Hideous Strength
He repeats the obligatory Leftist talking points ("Trump responsible for x deaths due to incompetence") and refuted hoaxes ("Trump recommended drinking household disinfectants" (i.e., bleach) but his fundamental point about the Left's obeisance to BS is spot on and must have come as a real does of needed "huh?" to his moonbat audience..
Why so misinformed ?
Because they watch CNN, the fount of
opinions dressed-up as facts,
facts that are lies,
facts that disappear from CNN journalist's minds and scripts,
Propaganda; *It's inclusive*, when everyone spouts the same lies lines...
You know who you can trust, and who will give you migraines.
Thinking is hard, and then you die.
Their sources of intormation — Facebook and MSM primarly — are partisan echo chambers, and they mistakenly place their faith in politics instead of a higher power, and their political heroes use fewr to manipulate them, for starters. There’s more but that’s about 90% of it, I would say.
