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.

Here is Thursday’s daily tracking poll result: -8. Through March 15, Obama was at around +15. After the post-inaugural honeymoon wore off, Obama averaged around +5 from March 15 to June 15. From June 15 on, he has averaged below 0.
