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.

You could either disco your ass off or sit in a Buddha Lude state and listen to jazz at the world famous Lighthouse in Redondo Beach.
Fortunately I survived that period of life and went on to discover the bliss and therapeutic value of goats milk, tofu burgers, and beet milkshakes. Throw in a weekly enema and you're suddenly a new person, although lately I've had my eye on some Horny Goat Weed at the health food store.
