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.

Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

I'm afraid of the girls in that music video, though.
