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.
Every human has at least a touch of sadism in them. A touch of other unpleasant things too, such as sociopathy. When these normal traits (eg, have you even felt schadenfreud?) reach some threshold level, we label them.
Let those without sin or sinful thoughts cast the first stone.
