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.
Chavez may have run into the internet. The youth want free speech. Socialists never want free speech - or free thought. We love those things at Maggie's Farm. Whether we are right or wrong, we require the freedom to say whatever we think - and we ain't stoopid: we is all highly and expensively eddicated.
Dear Ones--brother, sister, parent, friend,loved one, secret pal, working partner---whoever you are--please, please have the courage to offer me the opportuity to hear your thoughts--your wishes--your dreams--your ideas. You, nor I, can be truly human until that information is out there on the table between us--with respect.
