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.
You know what I find interesting? It seems that the whole climate scenario is very similar to the health care "debate" in the sense that it's all hyperbole and claims that are easily refuted by anybody with a lick of common sense. Fortunately, the climate hoaxers were caught with their pants down doing nasty things to themselves and others. Perhaps this whole travashamockery of a health care bill with the arcane machinations will fall apart of it's own weight.
It's not just Nature. All the media has been taken over by ignorant leftists. Scientific American magazine is now Pseudo-Scientific American because they publish nonsense.
I now refer to Science magazine as Seance.
