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.
A commenter at Neoneocon did some research and posted this: According to my numbers mentioned above, for every 100 words Reagan spoke, the word “I” occurred 0.87 times. For every 100 words Obama spoke, “I” occurred 1.58 times, or roughly a little less than 2 times as often.
No other president in my group (the last six) had a number less than 1.0 (per 100 words). Most were closer to Obama.
