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.
Why does Maggie's get so political, when we never wanted to? Because the gummint keeps trying to play a larger role in our lives. We hate that. If they left us folks alone, we'd have a much more interesting site. It would be all food and hunting and fishing and guns and skiing and tennis raquets and books and the arts and music and history and gardening and God and stuff like that. Things that bring delight instead of exasperation.
