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.
From our cousin Mr. Free Market: photos like this one. What a joy. Too bad the Brits don't love us Americans as much as we love them. That war was a long time ago, and remember - it was about government power over the people, and taxation. Who had it right? At least we still speak of freedom.
