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.
I wish churches would stay out of politics. Render unto Caesar, etc. Plus many pastors are politically hopelessly naive and prime useful idiots for any sentimental cause, regardless of consequences. The world of manipulators, con-men, professional victims, liars and politicians is just not their domain. CSM.
