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.
Heh, heh, the Obamas have good reason to be concerned that a nascent citizens militia does indeed exist out there in flyover country and is growing by leaps and bounds. Is this what the Founders meant by 'checks and balances'?
From what I can gather, Texans are quietly arming themselves and stockpiling ammunition for their own protection. Us being a border state and all. A government which would mandate that a contract can be ex post facto changed by the seller after it has been signed, cannot be trusted to live up to any of its promises.
