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.
There's a great bit in Terry Pratchett's "The Lost Continent" in which the Wizard Rincewind, after being chased because he broke out of jail (he was captured because he was seen as a "Bush Ranger" or sheep rustler in English) ends up in an opera house kitchen. He's mistaken for a famous chef who has to make a desert for the Opera Soprano and after a bunch of hilarious concoctions (like fried shrimp and fudge sauce) comes up with the Peach Fuzz Nellie which was peach fuzz sprinkled over strawberries with sour cream.
OK, I'll admit you have to read it, but it is very funny.
