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.
Better arm yourselves, girls. Looks like being the more refined & delicate of the genders is moving away from being a sort of protection against old-timey thugs who might retain a smidgen of male pride.

Excuse me but somebody take this guy's gun away. You don't go shooting into the dark at 25 yards. That is exactly how you kill your buddy who went back to the truck for his smokes or a nice bottle of scotch. Who the F taught this guy that shooting silhouettes in the dark was good gun practice? Friggin lunatic.
