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.
Authoritarian socialists/progressives love those federal government jobs. Job security, next to no accountability and the administrative states ability to nanny over your life, harass the nonconformers, and destroy livelihoods. It's all about projecting power and they "bathe" in it.

I don't care. I can't spare this man. He fights for America!
Sexual McCarthyism: Not at all surprising. I am "...unfamiliar with the politics of New York’s intellectual Brahmin class..." as well as those "Brahmins", but I am familiar with Democrats/liberals/progressives and people of that ilk.
Grauniad's agony aunt: Life's a bummer and then you die (unless you do something about it yourself).
University rolls out required diversity training: Men are not diverse, of course, of course.
"Beto", he knows how to not make friends.
Fight on, Trump - you magnificent bastard: OOOOO-RAH. And DAMN STRAIGHT!
