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.
Civil War predicted in Bolivia. Chaos has started, the Indian factions are up in arms and Mesa has lost control and no one capable seems to be in the capital to take over and implement order. Latin America's problems increasing and the Bolivarian Revolution led by Hugo Chavez from Venezuela is lingering like a bad smell everywhere that political strife is taking place.
