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.
And so it goes - once again, the Eurozone and UN are impotent losers. Worry about climate change, mandate onerous gaseous emissions controls, but when it comes to an actual crisis in the food chain - nope, can't do nuttin' about it - nothing to see here - move along.
Once their stocks are depleted, over here they will come and our stocks of bluefin will be raped and pillaged to perdition - which they are close to being anyway.
