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.
"The President is not the Enemy", by Ed Koch. For rabid Dems, he is the enemy. Bush is at war with the bad guys, and the Dems are at war with Bush. Feeling powerless makes immature people feel mean and angry, and pushes them towards hysterical extremes. Please tell me, Dem readers of Maggie's, of whom there are plenty - why no focus on the real enemy?
Iraq vote pushes Iraq in Islamist direction. Too bad, but it's their country. CSM
