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.
Twenty-four Marines selected for their appearance and assigned to a two-year 'ceremonial tour' located in DC...sounds quite expensive. Including support staff and travel, it probably costs around $4 million a year to keep these boys looking so pretty.
You know, the NFL only pays its cheerleaders about $75 per game. Just sayin'.
