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.
“How did we get to the point where the evidence is now that the president was falsely accused of colluding with the Russians, accused of being treasonous and accused of being a Russian agent, and the evidence now is that that was without a basis?” he asked. “And two years of his administration have been dominated by allegations that have now been proven false.

I believe in vaccines, but it bothers me the way the debate is constantly framed as a problem caused by those with conscientious objections to vaccines. Illegal aliens' diseases are never mentioned. Also never mentioned is the vaccine paradox - that many people who get diseases HAVE been vaccinated, but the vaccine has worn off, whereas surviving the actual disease gives a lifetime immunity. And finally, deaths caused by vaccines are covered up deeper than a politician's payoffs. If vaccines are as good as the propaganda says, then let's have the whole truth.
