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 believe in decorum and don't think it's right to criticize my fellow bloggers, no matter how disgusting and low-brow their posts. If the blogger makes it personal, however, like knocking my birth state of CA or wishing poor people like me would die from starvation, that's different.
Since you brought it up, here's the response I was considering: ________________________________________
Every 16-year-old boy in the audience will find this absolutely hysterical.
The rest of us will assume it was posted by a 16-year-old boy.
We've sure come a long way from gorgeous slow-motion videos of hawks in flight and tear-inducing videos of seat belt ads, haven't we, Gwynnie?
Hey Doc, can't post what you want, eh? You need to get off the traffic plantation.
By the by, thanks for forever freaking me out with your defense of hippies. In deference to you I've stopped using "hippie" as a pejorative, but I always had you pegged as an über Quint (see: Jaws - Robert Shaw). Now you've kicked me out of my frame of reference; damn my paradigm laden squash.
