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.
Does being wealthy make people Liberal? Then why do they love the inheritance taxes? View from 1776. At Maggie's, we oppose all inheritance taxes. We would like everyone and every family to have the chance to become free of relying on the government - whether that makes them liberal or conservative.

The consequences of gun confiscation in East Africa. Never take away people's right to self-defence. You take away their humanity. h/t, Barone And here is why: Dept of Righteous Shooting by Kim du Toit. My opinion? No responsible home should be unprotected by firearms.
