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.
Good point: How come drunk women are assumed irresponsible and cannot give consent, but drunk guys are expected to make sober, sexless choices when they have a bit of a buzz going, and the girl next to him looks like a horse but, to him at that moment, looks like Marilyn Monroe? Englishman's Castle.
Isn't that based on a sexist assumption that women are mentally frail, but men are strong?
Most men aspire to mental, physical, emotional and spiritual strength. It doesn't mean that they achieve it.
