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.
Those of us who live in cattle ranching country can tell you that the idea of reducing red meat intake has been a strong focus of the extreme liberals for nearly 20 years now! Their claim is that all those millions in China and India don't have to have steak once a week! If you folks want to help out why don't you take a more active participation in the cattle ranching industry?
