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.

WOW! What is this guy? 175 years old? Or am I missing something?
Whether I may agree with the gist of an article or not, inaccuracies like this cause me to end the read immediately.
I think, sadly, there are many adults who have no idea how to cook, think it is too hard to learn, or think it takes too much time. I make dinner at home 7 nights a week. We rarely take everyone out to dinner (too expensive).
Most meals can be made in under an hour with very little actual 'prep' time. Let the oven or crockpot do the most of the work!
The best class my two kids ever took (one boy, one girl) was a cooking class in middle school. They found out how easy it is to read a recipe and make something to eat.
Bird Dog: New Obama Ad Edits Debate Footage, Falsely Claims Romney Would Ban All Abortions
That's exactly what Romney said he would do if given the opportunity, ban all abortions.
COOPER: If Roe v. Wade was overturned and Congress passed a federal ban on all abortions and it came to your desk, would you sign it, yes or no?
ROMNEY: I would welcome a circumstance where there was such a consensus in this country that we said, we don't want to have abortion in this country at all, period. That would be wonderful. I'd be delighted.
COOPER: The question is: Would you sign that bill?
ROMNEY: Let me say it. I'd be delighted to sign that bill. But that's not where we are. That's not where America is today. Where America is is ready to overturn Roe v. Wade and return to the states that authority. But if the Congress got there, we had that kind of consensus in that country, terrific.
