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.
I loved basic training. I even enjoyed all the mental and physical harassment by the DI's. It was a challenge and I was surprised how easy it was, everyday I felt stronger and loved the physical challenge. Every 18 YO boy should do this.
LOL. It's even worse up here in Canada. As a friend's son told me once when I asked him about the possibility of joining the Canadian Forces, "I'm not taking orders from women, n*ggers and f*ggots." I can't say I blame him. Pretty based young guy.
