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.
In the possible event of any PETA lawsuits, remember that working dogs, like all dogs other than goofy ankle-biters, must go outdoors sometimes, if only to poop or pee-pee, regardless of weather and other conditions. Bad weather is not the fault of the owners, unless they are Republicans, in which case it probably is their fault. We will not move to Florida, nor can we wait for Global Warming to save our dog's dainty feet from crusty snow up here in Yankeeland.
