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.
"Global warming" was never a crisis, and it was never due to the actions of human beings who are only an insignificant part of the highly complex system which is global weather. You can credit a pouting Al Gore for the fake crisis after he lost the election and retreated to his basement to sulk. And pseudo-scientist James Hansen whom Big Al suborned to devise the junk science to support his faulty hypothesis. And all the ill-educated and ill-informed Chicken Littles who, needing some sort of religious belief after they abandoned belief in God, decided to believe in the spectacularly dumb concept of Manmade Global Warming to make themselves feel important again.
