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.
Thank you for featuring my post and that one is pretty heavily read as well. I have even more at the Killer Algorithm page if you want to read more. It's all about math models re-distributing the money in the US and how we get soaked as consumers as we can't see it, touch it or even talk to what's running on servers 24/7. Here's the link for that and if you find it helpful, pass the word along. I only created it to help folks understand what goes on behind the scenes.
