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.
I'm disturbed that many of my quite intelligent friends have not the foggiest about "collective bargaining." Seems that, before they answer a survey (multiple phone calls last night) or state an opinion in public, they would do some research on it's impact.
BTW, thanks for the eagle cam site. Have connected many eductors who find their students captivated.
