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.
This isn't about gays - it's about the slippery slope to speech control. Is freedom a universal human aspiration? I doubt it: I think it might be an Anglo-Saxon thing. (Is that a racist statement?)
However, to refute even that Anglo-Saxon statement, look what David Cameron wants to do. Is it too late for another revolution in the UK? Heck, look at what we did in the US, and that was about a lousy tea tax.
OK, I take back everything I implied about Anglo-Saxon exceptionalism: maybe all humans are infants at heart, longing for a Daddy and Mommy to provide and to take charge.
