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.
by Hawkins: Ed Klein:She has been in the midst of one of the most brilliant campaigns of deception in terms of political make-overs that I have ever seen in my life time and I’ve been around a long time. She has suddenly turned into a “hawk” on foreign policy, she has voted for every military appropriation bill that has come down since she has been in the Senate, she has been talking out about, “Let’s be reasonable on the subject of abortion and get together on this,” she’s been reaching across the aisle to conservative Republicans like Tom DeLay, Trent Lott, Rick Santorum.
