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.
Not voting for Democrats, on the other hand, is deeply related to clinging to (presumably, the Christian) religion. One can make some sort of case that people aren't really part of a group even though they say they are. You just can't have that both ways when the wind turns against you.

I think it's just WRONG to diss the Islamists, claiming they're lying about why they are killing/bombing/burning something. and i think we ought to make sure they KNOW just who'd dissing them, and where to find them, so they can make their case in person and impress upon these fools their utmost sincerity.
