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 agree with feeblemind on the Hume character assassination thing. This is what clueless, badly educated liberals do when they hate someone. And there is a lot of hate out there floating around. No one ever taught these creatures how to debate a question on its merits. And how to shake hands at the end of the debate. They are such frightened, unjustifiably conceited folks.
