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.

The proximate cause of the conflict, even though he is ultimately not its basic antecedent, is the president. The Washington Post calls Barack Obama the divider-in-chief.

In a way, Barack Obama has done more than any recent president to cast the issues starkly.
It has been made clear as day to voters that a vote for a national Dem is a vote for a Leftist agenda.
I've been trying to make up my mind about who to vote for, but it's so confusing! All of these politicians make claims and counter-claims, a voter doesn't know what to believe. So I just figure I will count the names listed on the yard signs in my area and use that to make my decision.
Yes, I am definitely going to cast my vote for Caldwell Banker!
