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.
Senators who want to run for president should be required to resign their senate seat in order to do so. What's Dodd done for the voters he made all the promises to when he ran for the Senate? He even moved to Iowa in a pathetic attempt to pander to the voters out there. What's he gonna do next, move to New Hampshire? I wonder how many votes these clowns have missed while campaigning. Their constituents didn't elect them to campaign.
