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.

Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
