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.
Must be my day for philosophy. If I asked such a stupid question in front of my wife "Is glass a liquid or a solid", she'd just retort "Would you just wash the sucker anyway? Who cares?! Get a life. It was your turn to do the dishes." ... and so on.
