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.
It’s not science I don’t trust – it’s the scientists.
The biggest area of mistrust comes from the so-called social "sciences." You know, the place where replication of results gets worse results than tossing a coin. As many social "scientists" have a lefty agenda they want to push on the great unwashed, results that cannot be replicated means that they have little credibility in their schemes- or scams- to improve us.
