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.
Want some actual music? how about Leonid and Friends, a Chicago (and others) cover band: (members are from Russia and Ukraine). Perhaps the finest drummer ever.
The history between Russia and Ukraine is complex; byzantine, in fact. Ukraine is run by some pretty savage thugs (too). But one thing is for certain: That war did NOT have to happen. It was provoked by our own 'trusted' government - both sides of the aisle. Why? Follow the money. A lot of that $40B is going to wind up in the offshore bank accounts of those moral-less criminals in Washington.
