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.
As we were taught yesterday here, even the government doesn't know how many federal criminal laws there are, but it's over 10,000.
Nobody knows all the federal criminal laws, much less all of the state and local laws. And we are not even talking about civil laws and regulations and administrative rules. They can always get you on something if they want to, and that's the problem.
