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.

This is just the beginning. Now we need to take back our country, state by state. Fortunately, the arrogant SOBs in Congress have made very clear who they are. We need to remove each one of them, throw them in the unemployment line, and replace them with people who respect the will of the American people, the Constitution, and American values.
