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.
Thanks, good to be back with rational people. I spent about a month over at Politico ...wear a HAZMAT suit. The most vile site I've ever posted on, bar none. I did however (self kudos about to be administered) get over 10,000 hits looking at my bio in the time I was there. It could have been more of a "Hey we found Sasquatch" deal than anything else but it got very very toxic and I couldn't handle the vulgarity or lack of knowledge.
This place really is a great site.
