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.

White House Communications Director Anita Dunn whines that Fox acts as a “wing of the Republican Party.” No complaints about the rest of the White House Press Corps acting as a Democratic high-rise condo development, though.

Did you guys see the supposed "swastika" at the golf course? The thing is totally backwards. No real neo-Nazi would make it that way. This is a hoax. Just like when Geraldo Rivera pretended to be beat up by skinheads in an airport restroom. He drew the mark on himself in the mirror- which ended up backwards. Which proves this is a hoax- because even Geraldo knows how to make a swastika.
