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.
BB..it's not an "occupation" Their freely elected government, elected under a constitution THEY put together have asked us to STAY....poor choice of words BB.
And by the way, the market is attempting to price in the cost of oil when we take out Irans nuclear processing infrastructure and a few other items , like their air force, anti aircraft radar etc.......you should love that....probably be holler'in "illegal war, illegal war".....might as well start holler'in now cause it's com'in.
Got a friend who lives in Texas and keeps a black Escalade here just for when he visits. Nice life if ya can get it. I've been driving his elderly parents and his aunt and uncle around some. It is a very smooth, quiet and comfortable ride. Supposed to drive them to Scranton, PA next week and am actually looking forward to it.
