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.
Eugene McCarraher, a thoughtful, earnest, but clearly impatient and irritated Christian Leftist from the old school (ie, appearing more passionate about politics than about saving souls), is awaiting an uprising from the pews to bring a Christian-socialist utopia to earth. Naturally, "corporations" and Bush are the main obstacles, plus that tired old bugaboo "American imperialism". You know how much utopians frighten me - wasn't Hitler a Socialist Christian? I always figure socialists want to own me and control me, crush my spirit and to make me a dependent. Tell me, who are the more worldly - the (few but vocal) members of the termite Christian Left or the traditionalist Christians?
