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 world has lost a great man. I am in mourning. His humor, wit, steely-eyed realism, courage, love of America, and joie de vivre were an inspiration to me. RIP, Rush, and condolences, love and peace to the family.
He has been a fixture in my life for decades. Whenever good or bad political news happened, I made sure to turn him on and get his take. It was always sharp, to the point, entertaining and, of course, he was right. I include this from youtube to give you a smile or a tear or, since its about Rush, probably both.
