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.
Potentates who hear the word of god seldom care what those beneath them think. As the Greek tragedies taught us, there is a fatal flaw in man that brings about the tragedy. Think about Macbeth and his vaunting ambition as a good example. Combine that with those who hear the voice of God, and no one needs to conceal fraud................ So they think. It doesn't pay to try to trick human nature. Or to think you can overcome today's technology for learning there are better ways to live than under laws that restrict the nature of humans.
The same could be said of our Pretender, except the voices he hears are in his head and in his mirror. Oh well, the long-term price is always the same - revolt. Thumbs up for the Iranian people, and good luck to them. I bet the Mossad, CIA, and SIS are in there fomenting the fires.
