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.
Bring your guitar or banjo and sing Michael Row the Boat Ashore along with all your Commie friends! By 1963 there was a Hootenanny TV show. I think the 1962 flyer below, borrowed from this interesting blog, is genuine. It's printed (probably as an in-kind donation to The Folklore Center) on the old Merrill Lynch paper - Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Beane. h/t, Sippican
