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.
There’s nothing more dehumanizing than judging someone by their skin color or other insignificant trait and nothing diminishes the importance of a position more than making an insignificant trait a main criterion.
If an insignificant trait can be viewed as making a person valuable, it, or another insignificant trait, can just as easily be viewed as making a person undesirable.
