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.
I believe the bible says that a fool and his money will soon part...I would add that for those who don't know how to handle money, there is never enough...Our governments are populated at all levels with too many persons who have never managed a family budget much less a payroll and god forbid, they are spending 4.5 trillion dollars of our money at the local, state and federal level each year. Americans are on the verge of losing their standard of living to these fools who are indebting this nation with debts that cannot possibly be paid. It looks like we will learn the hard way to elect persons who are good stewards of our money, or maybe not...I fear that we are on the way to a mediocre future where debt service will be chains on our feet for generations.
