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.
Heck, we all work for the gummint half the year already. Is that an allusion to having government (at all levels) take about 50% of our incomes in taxes?
If that be the case, saying that we work for government for half the year is wrong, wrong, wrong. Why? If we were working for them, they would be giving the money to us as wages/salary not taking the money from us as taxes.
