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.
I need to give politics a rest, and concentrate on God. Thanks for this.
I feel that the USA will fall apart (in fact I'm sure of it), and I find I think that would be a good thing, which surprises me. I don't think I can have much influence one way or the other. I feel bad for all the soldiers who fought and died for something that subsequent generations gave away. I would never encourage anybody to go into the US military now. What are you fighting for?
I think we should let the US go over the fiscal cliff. Let's get it over with, and the subsequent dissolution of our country. I absolutely believe in raising taxes on the rich. Almost all the rich people I know voted for Obama. I think the Republicans are wasting their time protecting them from themselves.
I am going to get right w/ God and Jesus now, as this plays out.
