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.
Not only rednecks, but just about any other adventurous creature with an X chromosome. I've seen some pretty "stupid" stunts by fighter pilots, fire fighters, cops, doctors, grocery clerks, ad nauseum. I love my men but sometimes...
Why should rednecks have all the fun? Famous last Yankee words: "Yo, peeps! Catch this!" Or, famous west coast surfer types last words: "Dude, you should totally check this out!" Rednecks aren't the only dumb shits, you know.
Unlike government decrees, seatbelts for instance. You are required by law to use them so that in the event of accident, broadside or collision with larger vehicle, you are guaranteed to be crushed to death, under penalty of law.
And while the risk taking gene claims some of the stupid and foolish, it got us out of the tree tops and into the modern world.
