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.
It's really sort of astounding how the world press can --with a straight face mind you --accuse Israel of controlling the world press ("Except for this statement!").
Especially considering how poorly-reported is the critically important middle eastern historical record, the pounding meme "Israel controls the press" would be high comedy if the history behind the intent wasn't so demonically murderous.
