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.
Reminds me of a similar problem here in Southern California several years ago.
Several aerospece companies found that their procurement people were taking brides and kickbacks, so they fired them. When the very same people applied at other aerospace companies, they sued their former employers for tipping off the prospective new employer. The Feds helped with the law suits.
Then, in the final irony, the companies were fined (by the Feds, natch) for negligent hiring when the same persons stole again.
And, no, I didn't make this up. I lack that level of imagination.
Nothing is as screwed up as our givernment, and nothing is so robust that they can't break it.
