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 wish the media would go down to Union Square and interview all the happy young people there. Here's my comment for these envious and hate-filled kids and their media-invented movement - self-important kids and superannuated kids who somehow have time to do street theater which I am sure must be fun and somewhat gratifying if you have no responsibilities in life:
I was 15 in 1968. Funny, now, to think of how, then, I saw Senator Abraham Ribicoff (D-CT) as courageous and Mayor Richard Daley (the First) as vile in their "Gestapo/You SOB" clash caught on TV. My admiration for Daley hasn't improved a bit over the years, but my regard for Democrat Connecticut senators like Ribicoff and Dodd has certainly changed.
I have always liked that line in Revolution!, "But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao...", yet it is remarkable now to see The Beatles credibly held up as troubadours of conservatism, particularly vis a vis Occupy.
