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.
I live in Cherokee County, GA where R.T. Jones, Jr's grandfather owned the cotton mill, general store, housing, etc. The family ran everything in the county, putting family members in as superintendent of schools and other positions of power and influence. It was a good day for the citizens of the county when the last of the Joneses were put out of office. The old mill buildings are now remodeled as apartments and business spaces. The old mill houses, schools, streets, and jail are now overflowing with illegal invaders from south of the border and Section 8 housing tenants relocated from Atlanta ghettos. Keeping up with the Joneses was no joke around here for over a hundred years. Anyone who grew up in a cotton mill town in the South knows about living under dictatorial privileged families that made their wealth on the backs of people kept "in their place" with slave wages and inhuman working conditons. The Joneses can kiss my ass regardless of how sweet his golf swing was.
