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 more you do, the more people you meet, and the more places you go, the more luck you get. Talked to somebody last week who got a new job by just chatting with a stranger in a barbecue joint take-out line.
What sort of job? Financial software development. Salary? Over $200,000.
Sad thing is the only people that will see the wisdom of this are the same people that believe they are unlucky. The other group believes they are so "lucky" that the only reason they are failing is that the whole thing is rigged against them.
