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.
Our Brit blogger cousin Mr. Free Market posted this photo of his non-local non-fox hunt with non-horses and non-foxes in front of the non-local non-pub on non-New Year's Day. God Save the Queen. Good old civil disobedience, in the tradition of Thoreau, Gandhi, and Martin Luther King. Bravo, Brits.
