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 like Sousa as well. Another silly story. Over there, in the jungle, I used to amuse the men on occasion by whistling (really a low blowing, couldn't make a loud sound) what tunes of Sousa I could remember. They liked it I think, at least they egged me on too do it.
We just hung out our Gadsden flag, with a silent good-wish prayer for Sarah Palin and her family. And the United States of America, which will not fail as long as there are patriots like Sarah and jappy, and Luther, and buddy and Meta, and all of the rest of maggiesfarmers who cherish our freedoms and protect them.
Don't Tread On Me indeed.
Happy Fourth of July. And fight back when necessary.
