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.
See ya got some frozen precip, BD. -5°F and about 4in of snow here 6 miles west of Rapid City right now. If we can stall for awhile longer, no one, not even the loonies, will be able to endorse "Global Warming" legislation. Hopefully, in 2012+, we'll repeal any of the stupidass mistakes now being made. I'm not a Gingrich disciple, but see http://mliberalguy.blogspot.com/2009/12/submit-to-reddit_968.html. Only 1:38 long but it's great. Stay warm.
