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.
I have had the privilege of having a personal conversation with Mr. Smith - very knowledgable man and a common sense kind of guy - make a good Maggie's Farmer.
I would like to point you to a [urll=http://prfamerica.org/speeches/9th/PleistoceneParkProject.html] speech he made in 2005[/url] on private property land grabs in the name of environmentalism. You want to know the enviro-mind set, this is it. It is a short read, but well worth the time.
