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.
Just another in a long list of Snopes entries labeled "false" -- in which, if you actually read all that the Mikkelson duo have managed to put together, you realize they are correct in the purely technical sense to put the false-tag on it, but when you muddle through the core essentials you find out the "urban legend" is actually TRUE. (Caution, Snopes is pockmarked-silly with popups, adware, auto-playing noise-making videos, etc. Lefties are staunch pro-capitalism zealots when managing their own affairs. Conquest Rule #1.)
The statement is to Mr. Thomas, from Upton Sinclair. "The American People will take Socialism, but they won't take the label."
