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.
We have lost track of the volume of our readership, but we know it is substantial and could be monetized in some way if we wanted to do that. We do not, because we do not want another Job.
However, if you have not done so, please let your friends, neighbors, relatives, enemies, colleagues, etc. know about us. Our readership is our reward.
Our eclectic site can be of interest to all sorts of people. As far as the political component goes, we just try to put up stuff that the MSM avoids. Tom Paine sort-of-thing. No need to agree with our political or other points of view.
Thank you for all the hard work you do in keeping this site going! Always interesting! I really enjoy it!
It reminds me in a way of the general store when I was small: all the men (sorry, women were generally absent because they had better things to do, doncha'know) sitting around the pot-bellied stove sharing gossip and goings-on and tall tales. If you want the news, you'd get your hair cut and read the paper down there. If you want to know what's really going on, pull up a chair at the general store.
