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.
I asked for wisdom...and God gave me problems to solve. I asked for prosperity...and God gave me brain and brawn to work. I asked for courage...and God gave me danger to overcome. I asked for love...and God gave me people to help. I asked for favors...and God gave me opportunities. I asked for strength...and God gave me difficulties to make me strong.
I received nothing I wanted...I received everything I needed.
