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.
the McCain campaign is a farce. Is anyone with a brain near him. I did not think it was possible to run a worse campaign than Fred but John may take first place in that category. Lay off the surge and focus on Obama's leftist policies and tax increases. Most of the Obamamaniacs are simply focused on his looks, orator skills and lanky looks. They have no idea about his collectivist leanings. The guy is a Marxist with no backbone. This week he threw the soldiers under the bus.
