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 believe that a far more effective approach to the alarming crisis of global warmening would be federal regulation, or banning, of beans. If Canada really cares, they will do it. They could call it FART OFF.
But some beans are inoffensive victims of such blatant stereotyping. The delicious Jacobs cattle dried speckled bean, properly soaked, drained, then boiled and Boston Baked, is not a global warming culprit.
