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.
Protest? I would be eying the exits as soon as she entered the room and looking for a way to quietly disappear. I imagine collegians prone to protest would do the same. They can see she's crazier than they are and is likely to do to them what they do others.

Want to bet she only turned anti-science once the craze for calling obesity genetic was debunked and died down?
(If anything, she’s genetically unable to put down the fork, even after a fourth piece of pie. It’s called willpower, and she’s lacking that gene.)
