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.
The libs didn't think they could kill the golden goose of a state that for decades has had the highest per capita income in the nation, a state blessed with the triumvirate of an economy based on fear: insurance, defense industries, and NY suburb.
The libs are finding out that they could, and did, kill the golden goose. As two of my hometown peers have been State Commissioner Poobahs of Management Uselessness or whatever you want to call such positions, I know some who share responsibility for the mess. Not a bad intention between the two, but no one said that bad intentions are what got CT in the mess it is in.
