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.
How soon we forget history... Government is not reason. Government is not eloquence. It is force. And, like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.
(Cool trivia, re his name. Wassa - a Saxon name. "Ing" Saxon for tribe. "Tun" - Saxon for a fortified village. Thus Wassa's family's fortified town. In England. The Saxons...then the Normans...then the Moslems? Good Grief! "The soul of the nation is under the knife" - Dylan)
