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.
"Meanwhile, liberal interest groups are massing for battle--though this is as much about raising money for the 2006 election as it is about defeating Judge Alito. Red state Democrats won't be eager to filibuster a man of his credentials, especially when polls show that the vast majority of Americans share his views on abortion and church-state issues."
