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.
Delay is a tough SOB and no lefty cabal will drive him away. The story is already old. But if you need info on who takes these lobbyist junkets, here it is, FYI, Nancy Pelosi: Surprise! And here's the $ comparison: Dems win again! We're not saying these trips are bad. We don't know. We just don't like the pious hypocrisy.
