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 got a laugh out of it...reminded me of the time I decided that golf shoes were needed. My drive on the first par 5 of my local course landed in the rough on a moderately steep hill, and I was swinging hard with a hybrid club to get out of the long grass and get some distance. It had rained earlier, and I slipped on the wet grass, landing on my butt - much to the amusement of my golf partners. Good golf shoes improved my game quite a bit.
