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.
It's my seasonal duty to invite our readers to lend Maggie's a hand by recommending us to your friends, relatives, colleagues, neighbors, enemies, and pets. Also, to your readers if you have a site.
We are a boutique website I spose, but I continue to believe that there are millions out there somewhere who would enjoy - or benefit from - our eclectic mix of stuff.
As I always say, a growing readership is our only reward here on the Farm. Well, the fun of doing it also helps.
We try to stay 30% political or less, and to post political things the MSM doesn't want people to read. We are, in fact, centrist and common-sensical, and lots of Libs read us. We have never been categorized as a political website despite our traditional American tendencies. We post about whatever we happen to be interested in.
Anyhow, if you like Maggie, please let people know.
In order to head off a bit of dickering that comes up every time BD uses the word "centrist", allow me to explain that he doesn't mean it in regards to a political party. That's 'Centrist' with a capital 'C', which is what I am. I define it as "hating both sides equally". What BD really means is apolitical, in that he's not hesitant to slap some article critical of conservatives in the morning links, which is something you won't find on PJ Media or RightWing News. (You'll find LOTS of it on Hot Air, but that's a different story) He doesn't, however, always exercise the best judgment when it comes to who he picks on. I, myself, will never forgive him for posting a link to an article that actually said something bad about Sarah Palin.
(All devout Palinites in the audience nod their heads in understanding)
Also, when he says "30% political", he means by article, not by link. I doubt we're even that much, except that many articles, like on global warming, could certainly be defined more as 'political' than anything else these days.
Well, I'd like to chat more, but I've got the afternoon hog sloppin' to tend to. I'd honestly prefer Bird Dog do it, though. Some things are best left to a professional.
This is a fine time to express my thanks for a fine blog. I am glad Dr Mercury responded, I agree with what he wrote and have a more clear understanding of what type of blog this is. I think he has it just about right.
I read your site a few times per day.
And I don't mind the pictures of the ladies from time to time.
Sadly or pathetically, whatever you want to call it I read Maggie's Farm because I don't have friends who share my interests the way you do. Farming, hunting, dogs,wildlife, literature, politics and Bob Dylan all in one place!
