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.
The Iran video is a lame sophomoric, Model UN project, albeit nuanced as the Persian desk added all the right little details for the Satisfied Grin Brigade. It's obviously a brilliant effort to influence the election in Iran, because if the "moderates" are elected, well then, it's all shorts and makeup up and down Keshavarz Blvd, men strolling arm in arm under the Azadi Tower, and weeks of Watergate type hearings to find out how much Mahmoud I'mmadinthehead knew about Iran's nuclear program and when did he know it.
