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.
Oh, yeah, that was on the news Wednesday night. Some loud, angry black woman stood up and demanded to know the candidates' position on "reparations". All of them that spoke up kissed her a$$. But when Emmanuel essentially said "get real, there's no money for this" (as opposed to "that's bull$h!t" she got all worked up and said that she didn't want to hear about budget problems, blacks were owed that money and she wanted it.
The longer people sit around and wait for money to fall from the skies the farther behind they're going to fall.
