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.
In response to an earlier commenter: since I pull charging lions inside-out and arm wrestle Kodiak bears for amusement, I am not in the least bit afraid nor envious of the Techno-Viking. He is my brother from another mother.
But this chick scares me.
And why did Chopin play the piano with his elbows and feet and then write it down? I need answers.
