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.
Not pointless at all. The credentialed lib elite believes that the lib point of view is the only worthwhile one. The credentialed lib elitists have collective conniption fits when someone who has credentials as good or better than theirs comes to a different conclusion. As Ted Cruz graduated from Harvard Law, and clerked for Chief Justice Rehnquist, his academic credentials are better than THE MOST BRILLIANT PRESIDENT EVAH, who also graduated from Harvard Law. Which is why the libs want to destroy Ted Cruz.
Hey, I know! Let's get a really smart Ivy League lawyer guy who talks really well and says things I like to hear, put him in the Senate for a couple of years and then make him President! What could go wrong?
