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.
The recent attack on Chicago police who were protecting the Columbus statue reveled how organized the violence is. Video taken on the ground and from the air showed groups of "protestors" changing to black clothing to become a attack force AND it showed individuals inserting themselves into the mob and distributing weapons (not guns but other items). to be used against the police. These (the organizers) aren't protestors they are their to incite. They are conspiring with others to cause physical harm and even death. These are not political demonstrations they are left wing terrorists.
