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.
These guys remind me of Milwaukee's Polar Bear Club Annual New Year's swim-in. And, believe me, they do this in Milwaukee harbor, when it's frozen solid all the way out to the breakwater, which is more than a mile away.
These gentlemen are going to sing soprano for at least a month.
I am disappointed at the recklessness of my fellow Canucks in this video. Amongst my ice fishing gang we would only have allowed 1 person at a time into the water. What if the second guy was the one with the key to the SUV or pickup where the beer was stored.
