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.
Don't get me started on the hypocrisy of it all. Lots of people tell me that scary, military-grade guns should only be in the hands of our military and our police. Then they tell me that we can't trust the cops because the cops are racist.
Explain that to me again...more slowly this time, please.
