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.
Oh thank God lenrope is here! I thought it was going to be a drive-by, but it looks like it's settled in...
Powerful arguments you're presenting there aj, I can hardly think of a retort.
Firstly, congratulations on being a bigger victim than anyone else. You have my sympathy. I hope the boo-boos heal, or whatever it is that you want to hear. I'm there for you.
It's got to be important to you to write comments here and just let loose. I mean, me and my buddies tie one on or get laid when we're frustrated. (I'm not judging you if you're not old enough to buy beer or if you're not able to score or get wood or something). Jesus, sorry... I didn't think you might be a girl. No offense if you are... Anyway, if your guy wins, you know, good for you. I don't like Obama myself--I think he's a bit of a pussy and he's way too leftist for me with friends like wright and ayers--but good for you, you sound kind of desperate for someone to tell you you're not an asshole for the way you think so I'm all for hearty congratulations. I mean, okay, I think you're an asshole, but I do feel sorry for you.
If you need to talk just comment again and I'll reply. You sound like you need a friend.
