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 can't make the mental transition, which I hope I never do, that words can be "violent." I'll grant "mean", "hostile", or even "hurtful" as descriptors of language, but never "violent". MS Shepard, thankfully, had the presence of mind to record the star chamber, otherwise she'd be another victim of PC insanity.
