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.
Hey Main-Stream Media - I know you're listening out there - quit it with this "insurgents" word. You know as well as I do that these are 90% foreigners who snuck into Iraq to defeat freedom and to humiliate America. Only the MSM and Ward Churchill believe they are noble rebels. It's quite simple - the word is TERRORISTS. Or, if you prefer, ANTI-DEMOCRATIC FOREIGN TERRORISTS. Got it?
