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.
If I could erase the stupid anti-war things I did in college, I would. I was a bit of a†skeptic, but followed the local†fashion like a conformist. Now, I feel only shame about it. The past just isn't what it used to be.
Now, I would like to join the Gathering of Eagles in DC next Saturday, and take a stand against the moonbats who are trying to relive the past: the youth want to be part of something they read about, and the grey hairs just never grew up and thought more.
I, too, was an anti-war idiot in the sixties, though not a serious one. I went to the protests to meet people (girls).I regret aiding the enemy's moral especially realizing now in hindsight that the North Viets were considering surrender after the Tet offensive, a battle that they lost. Where I live we have a few geriatric protesters along with a few hippy wanabes protesting every saturday on a main street. I've considered doing a counter protest supporting our country, but as of yet I haven't gotten off my skinny ass. Ther is still time for penance.
