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.
A comparison of proposed taxes over the next five years, stolen from a good piece at the King of Graphs, Willisms. The Dem leadership graph (yellow) would constitute the largest tax increase in American history, exceeding Clinton's.
May I ask what this new tax money is supposed to be for? No matter - they'll find some way to spend it, and the very rich will find some way not to pay it.
