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.
Mothers Day special: Osama's wife left OBL's cave for home but returned to him once in mansion in Pakistan.
Yes, we men would all live in caves if not for women; and, in Osama's case he might still be living!
And, OBL's current roommate isn't too pleased with him in paradise. (Careful of language, and hilarious from Iowahawk.) A clean language sample: "So it's been pretty much like that here since Mumbles showed up. Every day, it's calisthenics, fwip-fwip-fwip SEAL time, human shield time, pa-papp pa-papp, zwip-zwip-zwip, Excedrin headache #1. Just like that infidel movie of yours, Groundhog Day, except you really don't want to know what they use the groundhogs for. Trust me."
A quip I saw: Osama gets killed, and we get 72 versions from Obama.
