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.
You DO understand that that freeway page is a parody. right?

In the end, will we really be that much worse off when the Muslims take over once the decadent and suicidal Euros dwindle away? Though there may be hope for the gun-toting Swiss, perhaps, secure in their mountain redoubts.
Now on the bright side, that Laphroaig over there on the right side of the page is mighty good stuff. Not sharia-compliant though, so eventually we'll have to start making that over here. About the time when we dismantle Neuschwanstein Castle block by numbered block and move it to, say, a shopping mall outside of Phoenix. I can't wait.
Funny you should say that, Patina. A few years ago my husband and a friend (both as "all guy" as you can get) went into business together and would introduce the other as his "partner"-- even at get-togethers in the gay part of town with majority gay couples in attendance, until I gently clued them in.
Finally, they understood all the knowing smiles and surprised expressions-- They were always careful to say "business" partner thereon after.
