AMG OBITUARY

It was coming, a slow transition from one state of living to a different state of living.
That new state of living is now "As Maine Goes- The Living Dead".

Personally, I recognized this recently when I was confronted with agreeing with a Smegma
post and awarded him a "Drum Roll and Rimshot". He has been correct more than others like to admit ,
hidden by the crassness etc. making it easier to ignore him ,which isn't done as suggested many times,
it doesn't work.

During the change from AMG I and the love of the past which wasn't totally as good as remembered we started the slide.
Initially this started with love for the new owner, place holder, or what ever, he ,she ,they are. Roger seems to have the inside track
on that one. Which did bring about a greater freedom to criticize management than in past. But that was not used by many I suspect.
Oh he did expel a couple of posters which seemed to drive many away. Yet in the past when others were ousted it was gleefully
accepted. CC came back with the same effect but to much love. By the way are they missed?
Along with the change was the total loss of any ability to laugh by many, at ourselves or others. Much less say we disagree or agree on a post.

There is the drive buy posters who occasionally appear . Some to take shots at AMG in general instead of offering other ideas etc..
There is others who appear to take shots at members who in their opinion post too much, but that seems to have passed. They also do not offer much to counter what they disagree with.

Politically we are now obsessed with all going ons in DC and living the evils of the past 8 years. Yes , we are Trump supporters,
as with the All Lepage All the time , thing we are yet to accept any questions about opinions on right wrong ,good or bad so far.
Yet as the trolling continues by newer members to nothing of much significance it will assist in the transition but done politely.

Locally we have lost all hope, after all ,all our children have been indoctrinated and are doomed. If the MIC doesn't get them a hoard of illegal immigrants will.
Our news media is all bad and doesn't report but things that are sad but not here.

At least our constitutional rights are in place except for all those errors the founding fathers made years ago. Maybe they were deprived of kcals .
Obviously because of what the politicians did along with the lawyers.

Well we are now the living dead IMO,chracterized by name calling ,by one who couldn't even do better than "douche" ! lame at best.
But isn't that is a characteristic of the LD isn't ? Even a good Zumba scandal couldn't save us.

We shouldn't reflect on the opinions of our masters, that is what serfs do ; )

Maybe some of those opposed to union benefits, who have gone to better more glorious exceptions can share with us their golden parachutes?

How did we we get on this topic when we were talking about air strikes on beavers? Their money ain't involved in it, they decide. They benefit.

Inevitably, all things come

Inevitably, all things come to an end, good or bad. For those of us old enough to remember "the good old days" what was it about them that was good? No one told you couldn't smoke cigarettes, you didn't because you knew the consequences and if you didn't it was because it was evidenced by the fact so many smokers died of lung cancer. Even when it was printed on the package we could ignore it at our own risk and if we early in the game those who died could have their heirs sue the tobacco companies and win.

We could drink alcohol until we were in a stupor and unless we got involved in an accident, no one would be the wiser. Then those who abstained wanted others to join them forcibly so they got together and had the government ban it. No one alive today lived through that era but it was a time of lawlessness, bribery and unabashed abuse because those who enjoyed it would not be denied. They were not alcoholics but ordinary people who just didn't want to be told what they could and couldn't have if they had the money. Now it is drugs, which, by the way, the government has no authority to ban but does and like alcohol, can not possibly control.

Last week I tuned in to my favorite classical station only to find it no longer exists and its frequency has been assigned to someone else. I cannot find another private station offering nothing but classical music. I suspect the stations owners are still with us but since they survived on ad money, when the advertisers saw they were not getting the bang for their bucks catering to a bunch of old fogies who still liked classical music, they took their money elsewhere. Who could blame the owners for not doing it on their own dime.

In December, the couple who owned the seafood takeout my wife and I frequented every Friday for a lobster dinner for less than $30, went on vacation. They were supposed to come back in January. January came and went as did February and phone calls indicated the place was not open when I called in March. Last week I went by their place and the front entrance was boarded up. They aren't dead, they gave up because they couldn't make a go of it, just like many mom and pop stores of my past. The government has made it impossible to stay in business when it can determine the cost of doing so.

Bruce and I have engaged in healthy debate over these past few years and there are few of us left who remember what it was like to discuss issues with free thinkers and not those whose mantra is "my mind is made up, don't confuse me with the facts". It has been frustrating to say the least when the number of free thinkers is dwindling rapidly, like the veterans of World War II. AMG is, as Bruce has alluded is dead, because all you see posted is not free thought but a regurgitation of someone else's view, though completely wrong, fits in with the truth's that have been indoctrinated in them in the public mind altering and conditioning centers we call the public school system.

It was not always like this and Tom, who posts regularly, is one of those teachers who passed on knowledge to his students, not doctrine. Like Hitler, the Progressives, who now rule the country on behalf of the bankers who own almost everything, know that to keep the ruse going you need new converts to the religion of politics where the Democrats play god and the Republicans play devil.

There is a saying, "know the truth and the truth shall set you free". This may have been true in centuries past when man was a nomad and had not yet conquered nature. It is no longer, because knowing the truth now only lets you realize the various states of slavery we are all in. Slavery is not dead, some of it just pays better and your friendly government gets to determine your seat on the gravy train.

Second Sirius XM. Though you should try to get a trial and see if tree interference is a deal breaker where you drive.

If you stream music there are a number of services as well.

Sirius-XM radio will work

Sirius-XM radio will work just about anywhere.
I've had it since XM started many years ago, and whether traveling, or at home there have been very few dead air situations that lasted more than a few miliseconds.
It's also available to stream on the internet as well as an on demand service.

Here is an interesting map

Here is an interesting map showing voting patterns by precinct or town last November across that nation. Areas with no votes are in white. There are white spots scattered across our West and in Alaska. Those are mostly national parks, but the largest contiguous areas with no votes are the Unorganized Territories in Maine. There is a name for the intentional white area seen on this map, but it is one of those forbidden terms on this site.

Copy it while you can.

Oh, the name is "rural cleansing". It is like ethnic cleansing, but with a lower body count.

Roger probably doesn't see any irony behind the fact that his link to evidence of so-called "ethnic cleansing" proudly displays the stars and bars--a symbol of ACTUAL, not make pretend, "body counts."

Do not worry they are backed up by the SipseyStreet Irregulars !

Like the Russian influence on elections I await the identification of one voter who did or did not vote in election because of Russian
interference.

Like wise I await the lone voice of one person who will testify they were "Rural cleansed" and had to move against their will.
Not the difficulties or inconvenience of living in such areas.

Usually imo most of these maps are results of various conspiracies at work in the basement bunker. Between trash runs.

There are thousands of rural Mainers that have had to move because they had too much pride to take a government handout to stay where their jobs used to be.
They may not have had a gun to their head, but there was the threat to their paycheck.
Rabid environmentalism is the cause and rural cleansing is the best descriptor.

They tell us what they want. We just need to listen.

Any time you see the word "sustainability", pay attention. They want YOU to be less sustainable.

That applies to thousands of workers in many industries everywhere.

It is easy to blame the enviro.thing, little is ever said about what opened the door for them.

According to the latest voter

According to the latest voter figures for Brunswick 41.72% (4,802) were registered Democrats, 4.11% (473) were Green, 35.34% (4,068) were unenrolled and 18.83% (2,168) were Republican. That yields a total of 11,529 votes cast. The census bureau estimates show a population of 15,175, 13,478 live in households and therefore have an address at which they can be reached. Where the 1,697 reside is unknown and therefore they are unreachable by normal means. That is over 10% of the population and you begin to wonder about the figures for the country.

Of the 13,478 in households, census figures show 12,171 over the age of 18. Given that there were 11,529 voters out of 12,171 eligible means that over 95% of those eligible actually voted. The polls were open for 12 hours and that means nearly 1000 persons went through the lines each hour of the day since there is only one polling place. But, Maine voters can vote absentee.
According to the Secretary of State Maine absentee voters cast 55,800 Democrat ballots and 32,400 Republican ballots. In Brunswick, the total for both parties was 4,139. That still meant 7,390 people visited Brunswick’s only polling place on election day. My wife and I went to the polls about 8:00 AM and other than the 15 or so monitors in the place and another 10 or so milling outside I couldn’t count more than 10 or so people in the voting stalls, including my wife and I. There were four lines to get ballots and each had one Republican and one Democrat to insure those voting had their names on the rolls. We were not asked to present any identification, only to give our names. Four lines would then have had to process nearly 7,400 voters over 12 hours or 154 persons every hour for each of the four lines. That works out to nearly 3 people per minute continuously for 12 hours. I’m sorry folks this is neither realistic or credible.

Under Maine law, anyone can get on the state ballot if they have obtained 4000 signatures of Maine registered voters. If they belong to a registered political party they need only a majority of party delegates of their parties votes to get on the ballot in the primary election. If the party garners less than 4000 votes they can only get on the ballot by going through the same process for the forthcoming election.

You can begin to see why anyone, not belonging to either of the two main political parties has no chance at being elected to state wide or national office. Even if you belong to one of these parties, you must cow tow to the will of the party leadership which, because of seniority rules belongs to a group of the elderly who are in possession of the power to dole out to their supporters favors, defined as patronage. In the old days, they did it smoke filled back rooms. Because of the huge increase in population the back room has become an arena and you are no longer allowed to smoke. The rules, however, have not changed.

A further examination of the figures shows that the person actually elected had the support of only 41.72% of those who actually voted. Since the government dole now covering retirement, wages, and healthcare are now untouchable, it would have made no difference whether the 18.83% Republican votes were combined with the 35.34% unenrolled vote, the ability to change the direction of the country away from a complete welfare state would not be possible.

"It is easy to blame the enviro.thing, little is ever said about what opened the door for them."

I was banned on one site for using the term "rural cleansing". I'm writing a paper in the progressive attack on Maine. It could turn into a book. Rural cleansing did not begin with LURC on Sept. 23, 1971. That was just the frosting on the cake. It began in 1921.
