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.
A few people asked me for the lyrics of "The Little Bell" which we posted a few days ago.
I wanted them too. I know no Russian, but the song hardly needed English lyrics to be understood. Here's a Red Army Chorus rendition of this heart-wrenching tune, with English subtitles. This is Russian soul music, and Russians have soul if nothing else.
