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'd give the same name to our current war in Iraq. If Bush had let Desert Storm go a few more days, Saddam would have been dead or in exile. There would have been a real chance to restore the pre-Hussein Democracy.
We also had a half-million soldiers and Marines from our Cold-War peak on the ground to crush any internal or external resistance.
