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.
Colleges are the open door for illegal immigration second only to the Southern border. These people are displacing American engineers and tech workers. Our high tech billionaires are determining our immigration policy. They gain billions in profits and the middle class loses billions of dollars to loss of jobs and opportunities. The country is being sold out from under us to the highest bidder or even for a promise of a vote.
It used to be that corrupt politicians, bureaucrats, administrators, etc, tried to hide their corruption because they knew it was shameful. Now they parade their corruption in front of the peasants with pride.
I think Arthur Miller's "All My Sons" will have to be rewritten for the modern age: with a corrupt politician or bureaucrat as the protagonist, who brags to friends and family about the "killing" they made and how they hoodwinked the peasants.
