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.
...that is learned at home, in the public schools, the universities, on television, and in the church they attend. All the institutions are flailing around in the gutter and it is what the Gramsci's of the world promoted and then injected their disciples into those institutions. The TRs, Wilsons, FDRs, and Johnsons aided that possibility with big government and large administrative states so government wouldn't change direction.
