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.
"If so, you are a) Unemployed b) A drunk c) A pitiful person with no life"
Hey! I resemble that remark! Actually I am neither a) nor b) nor c), but I have done my share of staring wistfully out the window muttering over a glass of wine, but that was mostly between January 2009 and November 2016.
Agreed on not giving Equifax any digits of your SSN and freezing your credit. The linked article on how to respond to Equifax is better than many others but still wrong in many respects. I have put up a post on how to do it right.
I have been a GKC fan for decades. Almost all writers and thinkers of more than 50 years ago don't "fit" in the 21st C, though. That's why we must read them. It is the only escape from the tyranny of Current Events.

The G.B. Shaw article was interesting -- right up to the last few paragraphs, where it went all "GBS was to Stalin as Trump is to Putin."
