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.
I love those old sword and sandal movies. They show huge swaths of the majestic deserts of the Middle East, and take in huge swaths of the media and the public. Look on the bright side; perhaps Fitzgerald will become the spokesman for the NRA someday. Armitage? I'm afraid he's gone and got himself thrown under the chariot.
