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.
The story of the girl having to wait out a fire drill in a wet swimsuit in -5 deg. weather was outrageous and another example of the mentality that gives us zero tolerance.
But the story that baffled me even more was about the Girl Scouts. I thought the mother would be taking her girls out of the Scouts have been promoting abortion and other feminist garbage but instead it was a stupid safety rule.
