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.
Trump this, Trump that. Now everybody is his friend, every conservative loves Trump. I'm finding it a little hard to forget the first two years of his Presidency, when the Republican Party acted like somebody farted anytime Trump was around, and put on distance when he could have used support; The 2018 election meant the House was lost to the Mean Girls Party as a consequence. Republicans will have to work a lot harder to get me to believe they've changed stripes, especially that thick white one down their collective backs. In the meantime, don't forget to make sure that you vote, and at least 5 people around you, too.
