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.

"Tangibles." That captures it, doesn't it? Freedom is not a "tangible," is it?
Thought you folks should know what is going on in Seattle. Take a look at this and write a letter to your local editor (if you still have one), call a lawyer--do whatever you can think of to help protect the 138,000 people who signed a petition against gay marriage. In Seattle the homosexual community is demanding that those names be made public--it's your freedom too!
It would be a "nice" tangible if we all drove Mercedes Benz cars. Why doesn't congress give one of those to every family in America while they are at it. It apparently is all about "tangibles" isn't it? Sheesh.
