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.
Cherry-picking data points to create alarm about an income gap. View from 1776. Dishonestly fueling envy for political purposes is low. Somebody needs to tell the NYT that 1) We Americans aren't Commies and 2) Who cares what other people make? I don't want their money - I want to do what I chose to do.
"You know, I'm going to start thanking the woman who cleans the restroom in the building I work in. I'm going to start thinking of her as a human being." - Hillary Clinton, from the book "The Case Against Hillary Clinton" by Peggy Noonan, p. 55
"...the editorial board has been bombarded by Hillary surrogates. Recently, Bill Clinton was sent to visit the paper and personally made the case for his wife. His visit came after calls to editorial board members by Walter Mondale, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., and Madeleine Albright."
