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.
On the coverage of Reagan during his Presidency item. Reagan was vilified by the left from back when he was Governor of California.
Here are links to a skit performed 12/12/80 shortly after the election. I remember taping it at the time and though it was funny it is a hint of what the left and the media thought of Reagan and all Republicans then and now.
