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.
not sure why criticism of Bush (if talking about his dog is criticism) is considered a troll on a pro-capitalist site. Bush was the biggest socialist since FDR. Note: I said was. I think he has already been surpassed.
Rove once told me that what he liked best about W was that he got up in the morning and fed his dogs first thing. I chuckle at the prospect of The ěne looking to his teleprompter for directions on how to feed the dog.
You can board a water dog, but you can't waterboard a dog.
