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.
Yet another time when Alexander Hamilton was right!
(I have a hard time understanding why lefties like Hamilton so much. He and Washington were the mortal enemies of Jefferson and Madison who were the first prominent members of what was to become the Democratic part. Washington and Hamilton would more likely be Republicans if they lived today.)
