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.
Banning hot-cross buns in England. WFT? Michelle. Those Brits should try emigrating to Pakistan or Saudi Arabia and getting them to ban something. Hello??? Where is Chamberlain Churchill when you need him? Have you abandoned all self-respect?
Who is speaking for Britain? Is anyone home? Don't let Maggie's Farm give up on you as our proud Homeland! Where is that Anglo-Saxon-Norman spirit? I do not think that we American cousins are planning to rescue you this time. You are on your own...hot-cross buns. I love 'em. And we love you folks - don't give it away. You have a precious heritage.
