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.
I would have used skepticism instead of mistrust, but then again, scientists of every field should by definition be skeptical. The ones who are not should not be trusted. So maybe mistrust is the correct word.
I write on this issue quite often. This is a link to one of my blog posts about why most research studies are false. Because it contains a number of links, including YouTube links, and they will not come across in a paste, I would suggest clicking through if you are interested.
