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.

This is all nonsense. There's about 3 cents worth of corn in your 14 oz box of corn flakes - the one you pay three or four dollars for at the store. It was about two point two cents, and it got as high as four.four cents. The main cost of food is transportation, and oil is heading for EIGHTY DOLLARS/BARREL. Nuff said?
