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.
Well, if they really think it is important for security, then surely Bloomberg wouldn't hesitate to stream the cameras online so we can watch him as he watches us. We can watch the police and the political cronies. Perhaps for imminent security, the stream can be delayed an hour.
But if it blacks out when the police or the politicians are around we know they are up to no good.
