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.
If one were to believe the hyped-up silliness going on at Capitol Hill, you'd be very very afraid of this dweeby nice fellow with his minivan and good looking family.
At the risk of saying what everyone already knows, Alioto Alito will be confirmed. What has been going on has been red meat and pandering to the Dem base, thus Alito is being smeared with implications of the usual racist, anti-environment, fascist, corrupt, plutocrat-lover, child-hater, woman-hater, etc. etc. The lack of respect is beyond belief, and I am not surprised Alito's wife had enough of it. If anyone takes this seriously, they are in la la land.
