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.

Is Bin Ladin working for Rove? Ex-Donk Or is he planning to run in the Dem primaries?

Need some good belly-laughs? The Free Photo Booth thing from the Leno Show.
It's a good thing some people are willing to be friends with liberals. I was a great deal more liberal in my youth, until I paid attention to some of my good friend Bird Dog's finds. Like the faith, political enlightenment isn't taught, it's caught. So if one avoids or snarls at the misguided, they will never see the error of their ways.
Having said that, I should say that one of my children has a libertarian conservative godfather of no little political notoriety. He is probably a hero of many of you gentle readerrs. But he is a lousy godfather who is so busy slaying liberal dragons that he has no contact with his godchild, and who will therefore have no influence on his evolving political sense. Another child has a godmother with the most revoltingly PC tendencies. However, she is devoted, kind, full of Christian hope, and has therefore infected the hapless child with all of her PC sentiments...We can't pick and choose right...
