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 live in Massachusetts. The only enjoyment I get at the ballot box is getting to vote against John Kerry or Teddy every few years.
This years "opponent" that I voted for and whose name I have already forgotten never had a chance.
For one thing, the only way ANYTHING he said during the campaign would have been published by the liberal press would have been if he uttered it while publicly committing murder on the Boston Common. The TV stations ignored him, the newspapers ignored him and half the people I know didn't ever know that Kennedy was running for re-election.
I only wish the "right" could pull off a conspiracy that well executed.
Now that Jon Cary has tearfully said goodbye to his presidential aspirations, he can say and do all kinds of things he had to think twice about when he was a contender. I think we might be seeing a whole lot more of Jon Cary Unplugged.
