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.
These little punks these days would have been getting their asses kicked every day after school if they had grown up in North Carolina back in the 60s. I could fill their FaceBook page with some real macro-aggression, but I wouldn't dream of it. They will get hit with reality one of these days. It will slap them in the face if they are lucky; kill, rob or rape them if they're not.
I guess I will just have to soldier on with the burden of my white male privilege. Someone has to suffer.
