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.
Meant to post this major story earlier this week, but forgot to. Supremes decide unions cannot spend dues on politics without permission of the members. That is a just decision, and long overdue. Forced political contributions are not the American way. Thanks to Right Wing Nation for the reminder, because this decision is a very big deal with potentially huge implications.
