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.
New comers used to assimilate, now they demand you like and take up their ways. For heavens sake, they still carry their old country's flag around demanding we accept everything they tried to get away from. As my mother used to say, "How stupid can you get!". The American Indians are a perfect example of what happens when things get out of hand and you are invaded.
