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.
Sowell: How government legal threats created the sub-prime mortgage market. Naturally, they didn't want to hold on to that junk, so they packaged it up, and sold it to willing buyers. Totally logical. If you think there aren't people out there who want to buy junk, just check out eBay some time. They once had a booming market in Beanie Babies. Caveat emptor.
