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.
If you were attracted to this post because it was about guns, go away. if you think your guns will save you from the encroaching government, go away. If you believe gun rights organizations will preserve your right to keep and bear arms, go away. Anything you post about your gun opinion in a public forum will mark you. If and when the the government wants to take your gun(s) it will. So, shut up.
