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.
Donald Trump may be a slippery self-promoting egomaniac, or he may be an inspired, self-made franchise (but not a self-made man, since his dad had a real estate empire too). Whatever Trump is or isn't, he knows real estate, and he can be articulate. So when he says the proposed UN renovation is a boondoggle, I would tend to believe him. (No offense to CT's Chris Burnham, a good fellow but not a real estate guy.) Story in NY Sun.
