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.
Re those Brit Christians who want to call God "Allah": I am not one of those who says "It's all the same god, so what does it matter what we call him/her/it?" They aren't "all the same," and I happen to be a happy monotheist.
I like this from Insty: "I SAY CALL HIM "HERMAN," OR I'LL START BLOWING SHIT UP."
