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.
Can't agree on the "No talent" bit, Tom. She had a fascinating voice and entertaining delivery - at least in the little I listened to her (I wasn't willing to listen enough to spend money to feed her habits and make her handlers wealthy). Clearly she had talent.
The rest of your comment, and no doubt more, I wouldn't argue with.
