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.
People who think that liberty is a sure thing should be paying attention to the Canada Human Rights Commission v. Mark Steyn case. It's not the bully boys or the brown shirts that are a clear and present danger, you would recognize that threat in a heartbeat, but the do-gooders and their lawyers who spout platitudes even as they use supercilious regulations and government commissions to confiscate your wealth and bring you to heel.
