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.
Brings back fond memories of my old drill sgt in the U S Army. Yes, fond memories. Men need to be "encouraged" in this manner, to stop whining "Woe is me", get up off the bloody couch and take charge of our destinies. I know it did a world of good for me in my early 20's and recommend it for any young man trying to find his way. This GEICO ad makes me smile every time I see it, a much needed antidote to therapeutic America.
