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 believe if you look closer you'll see that's the even rarer 9-legged Piping Plover.
(Actually, it's a chimera created by PT Barnum by sewing a bunch of extra legs onto a chicken. He created mermaids, jackalopes, unicorns, and Canadians much the same way - none of those mythical creatures actually exist.)
