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.
Hey, don't be "dis'n" this guy. He didn't file a lawsuit to get a boat to go fishing. He didn't ask for an earmark to get fishing boats to his community. He didn't claim he was discriminated against because he was a Bama fan.
He collected some boards from his yard, got some foam from Home Depot and spent his hard earned money on a battery and trolling motor so he could go fishing.
Nothing wrong with that.
Many more folks should try pulling up the boot straps.
