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.

It might work, too, because Liz MacDonald at FoxBiz has for two days now been repporting on the PAC contributions given the Super Committee --and the resulting voting records. Money has gone to Dems 2 to 1, and not one of any of them has voted to cut any of their patrons --beyonmd just the tiniest amount for the right to say that the money doesn't buy THEIR votes.
