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.
Capoeira - A dance that slaves in Brazil learned, because they weren't allowed to study combat.
If you want to learn this subject, that's fine. But bear in mind that Capoeria is very political. Quite often, participants will talk about the need for the "slaves" in Brazil to take back what they have lost. It's a ritual expression of fighting. But it also represents the idea that black people will have to use physical violence to get what they want. I guess you could say that it's a form of revolutionary art. Brazil has a lot of black people, and they are just as dangerous as the blacks in America. It's not going to be pretty when that mess gets straightened out.
