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.
Just understand that this is how she derives pleasure. A kind of negative attention whore because, I presume, she is not capable of getting positive attention. She pokes her finger in a strangers eye and enjoys watching him/her suffer and ask why did you do that. If she were 18 I would guess she would grow out of it one day but considering that she is not 18 I suspect she will be this way to the end. She is an unredeemed "Scrooge" and there will be no saving ghosts of Christmas past to scare her into reality.
