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.
In watching/listening to the two acceptance speeches by both candidates one thing struck me. Both appear to believe, or at least promulgate, this notion that the President of the United States can control and/or has great and precise influence over the economy.
The Sarah Palin smear job continues. I just read she has a slush fund of drug money, and that she is helping Bird Dog renovate his bathroom and helping him buy a new grill and smoker. When asked why she's doing this she replied she "likes to help men who dress up as women get ahead in life." I can't stand these people that start these rumors. They're terrible, evil, venomous people.
