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.
Please give me the power. I promise to make everything new and beautiful for you ignorant little people who do not understand what you really want or what is best for you. Furthermore, I'll turn your slob husbands into young studs, your wives into Miss Americas, your bank accounts into mountains of gold, and I'll make the oceans recede by shipping water to the moon (with apologies to those with waterfront property).
As the rigorous science casts more doubts on the over-simplistic AGW theory, and the PR campaign that attempted to sell the theory as fact to the public and politicians becomes more exposed for the charlatan hucksterism and attempted swindle on the public treasury that it was ... the politicians and media that sold their souls to the ideology become more desperate to shove it down everyone's throats with force or threats of force. The shrill pronouncements of impending doom increase ... though the doom is more for the collectivist dreams of harnessing the energy markets for their own personal gains.
