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.
And this came from The Daily Show? On the Comedy Channel??

Well, it's probably not the first time they've sided with conservatives on an issue.
I mean, in all these years.
By the way, I have a comment on the reporter's extremely well-done disguise. I was there, back then, and that's exactly how we looked. When you guys picture "hippies", picture that guy and you've got it.
We had some ladies in front of the grocery store a while back trying to get a petition signed to establish a Department of Peace. I said to one of the ladies,
"A Department of Peace? You mean, if we were invaded by a foreign country, it's job would be to make sure we didn't fight back?"
I guess she hadn't thought it all the way through because she didn't have an immediate response, and I had lasagna to buy so I wished her luck and left the festivities. They weren't Code Pinkers or anything like that; just a couple of sweet ol' gals who wished peace in the world.
